Vivid Vague are a haunting prog-folk trio from the shire of Devon. Fronted by Michelle Dilling (Vocals) with Nathan Gregory (Guitars) and Simon Hodgkiss (Drums).
Starting life in 2015 as a grunge rock outfit they have honed their sound into the more subtle and delicate tones that we hear today but still with some dark edges.
Working with the likes of John Cornfield (Robert Plant, New Model Army, Supergrass) in their development, the band have now arrived with a spellbinding live show that is gaining them a loyal and growing fanbase.
Drawing likenesses to Laura Marling, Amy Winehouse, Daughter and Lana Del Rey to name a few, be sure not to miss out on seeing these guys at a venue or festival near you soon.

Take Your Time' is a 5 track EP which presents some of his latest material in a stripped back acoustic format that closely resembles the sound of his one-man shows. The EP was produced, recorded, played and sung entirely by him at his studio in Lyme Regis. This particular track "New Friend" was co-written with Steve Black (with whom I wrote the majority of my first album).

Lomi are a Plymouth 3-piece playing heavy rock influenced by 90s grunge and everything that kicked ass since. Formed from Plymouth bands Southpaw Jinx and Discoloured, the members each have over ten years of gigging experience and aim to put on a memorable live show. Self titled album released in 2017 and said to be the 'best debut this year' on BBC Radio Devon. Website www.lomirocks.uk and facebook is www.facebook.com/lomirocks
In Plymouth, late 2014, Sam Harvey and Adam Martin decided to hook back up, having performed together with Adam's brother Glenn ten years previous in Discoloured. One of the bands Discoloured had performed with was The Southpaw Jinx featuring Neil Harwood on drums. Since The Southpaw Jinx split, Neil had helped form and play gigs with Roadhouse Bound, then Orpheus Fury, neither of which lasted long, the frustration leading to a two year hiatus away from the scene. With Glenn not showing interest in a current project, Neil was asked to join and help think of a name. After playing with different tribal and Maori words, 'Lomi' was picked as the meaning 'to massage between the fingers' made us laugh.
Neil's encouragement of reviving some of the old Discoloured material gave the band a good starting point, add to that the new ideas floating around, it wouldn't be long before the band could go live. 2015 saw Lomi hitting the local circuit, playing with some awesome bands and getting a reputation as a band worth keeping an eye on. Away from the stage more new songs were being written and by the end of the year an album worth of songs were pretty much complete.
Early 2016 saw the band join Doc in Plymouth's PMC Studios to get the debut album down - ten tracks, four of which were revamped Discoloured tracks and the rest newly penned.
Unfortunately, band politics meant something had to give and towards the end of 2016 Adam was replaced by Billy Turner. The band now featured an 18 year old, a 28 year old and a 38 year old...
