The Kaizens -
Matinée deal in slices of delicious hypercolour indie dance pop. The new single Empty is already confirmed for Radio X play on April 30th and is produced by Billboard topping producer Tony Doogan and Chris Geddes from Belle and Sebastian, the song about spiritualism, religion and the loss of faith.
Jake Morley can certainly claim all the right credentials of a singer-songwriter. Lucy Rose once booked him and Ed Sheeran to play the 40-capacity Monkey Chews in Chalk Farm. His last birthday party was a 5-hour jam with Jack Garratt and Alex Vargas. Previous support acts include Rae Morris and Frances. His new album The Manual (June 3rd) and Jake takes his unique live show around the UK.
Hailing from England’s North West, Richie Syrett is a Singer/Songwriter with his own distinctive and thoughtful blend of melodic Americana flecked Folk/Rock. His style makes a grateful bow to a wide number of influences on both sides of the Atlantic so perhaps 'Anglicana' is a more fitting way to describe his sound. Silhouettes and Outlines is released via Too Die For Records.
John Santana who is based in Glasgow, England
Having been writing music of various styles and with an aim to get as many hit songs under his belt as possible, John Santana returns with pop hit in the making Don't Judge Me.

Mika Estrella who is based in Los Angeles, USA
Influenced by the likes of Gladys Knight, Alisha Keys and Keith Sweat to name but a few, Mika Estrella now returns with her new track Done.

Paul Jones - Singer/guitarist
Richard Thomas-James - Guitarist
Chris Francis - Bassist
Aled Richards - Drummer
Beyond The Break is a rock band from Llanelli, South Wales which includes Catatonia drummer Aled Richards.
The band was signed to London's 2p Records before playing a live show on just the strength of their demo.
The debut E.P ‘Pictures Of Losing Sleep’ was recorded as a live performance direct to tape over the space of two weekends at Smokehouse Studios in London, capturing the band's full essence in the recordings.
EP single track ‘The Way It Was’ received in excess of 25,000 organic plays on Spotify in the first four weeks with the band only playing a handful of shows including a sold out hometown gig and performing for the Foo Fighters Fan Club at the Foo's Wembley show. At the year mark, the band had broken 100,000 plays.
Preserving the integrity of analogue ‘Pictures ...’ has been released on 12” vinyl and features four intensely engaging alt-rock tracks.
