With vocals as pure as the diamond she derives her name from, DELAIRE is ready to shine. Drawing inspiration from the spectacular Delaire Sunrise Diamond, her addictive melodies are only matched by sensual, yet subtle lyrical stylings. Like the precious stone itself, the end result is a composition of conflicting qualities. Powerful, yet intricate. Controlled, yet pure. Composed, but natural.
Delaire played at the recent Innocent festival and her new single 'Belief' is picking up airplay on Amazing Radio.
Sheepy is a Liverpool based, three piece pop punk consisting of Songwriter Luke Jones, Ex Dead Class frontman Villy Raze and Ollie Fontaine

Sheepy's debut self-titled album was released on Blang Records in January 2014 with singles "These Clothes" and "Don't Know Much" coming from it, both tracks receiving lots of praise and buzz. The band will be performing tracks off their forthcoming EP 'Wild' (Blang Records) at Discovery.
"a melodic, hook laden classic - so adverse and unconcerned as to what is gracing the pages of the NME" (Louder Than War)
"An amazingly accomplished set of tunes" (Sounds XP)
Think pop melodies, rich harmonies of Motown with dark soulful beats and modern grooves of the UK’s underground music scenes, mixed with a powerful jazz inspired husky vocal and that’s the sound of one Rita Satch. Widely known for her soulful and seductive live performances, Rita Satch has fast developed a reputation as an unforgettable presence in Australia’s neo-soul scene. Ahead of her Glastonbury festival appearance Rita plays Discovery.
