Hailing from Wellington, New Zealand, rock quartet Bakers Eddy are inspired by 90s/2000s rock
Their infectious single 'Something Outside' has been supported heavily by The Rock FM, and accumulated over 16,000 plays on soundcloud.
Dedicated and professional, their music is all lean muscle. Welding infectious melodies to classic rock themes, ascendant guitar riffs and sing-along group vocals - live and recorded - Bakers Eddy are poised to make a significant impact on the New Zealand rock music scene.
"A band to watch out for" - Rip it Up Magazine
"Bakers Eddy have got what it takes to go far. I haven't heard such mature song writing from such a young band in a long time. They've got the riffs, the lyrics and the look and they kill it live. I have no doubt these guyswill go far" - Clayton Anderson, Beastwars
Desert Planes are a London based guitar band, with an Americana/Alternative Rock flavour. Formed by Tom Farrer (Lead Vocals / Rhythm Guitar) and BenNiblett (Drums / Backing Vocals), the bands musical approach to strong melodies, attacking beats and swaying riffs result in a melancholic soundscape with a euphoric punch.
"We're on this whole nostalgia trip upon pressing play that introduces the voice of Richard Ashcroft (so by default The Verve) combining with moments of The Cure that culminates in something quite splendid." Killing Moon
are Bernard James and Koopa Nut; two musicians, rappers and sometimes spoken word artists based in London. Influences span countless genres and eras resulting in a cityfull sound of synthlead melodies and driving beats; the backdrop to their vivid imagery and artistic direction. Songs flow easily from teenage rebellion to the complexities of ‘30 something’ relationships and the norms of social expectations.
Their sound has grown steadily over time, unhurried, to become confident, energetic and personal. The press have described their Love Sick album as “intelligence over badness”. Their live shows have been critically received and they continue to perform nationwide exemplifying a fearless chemistry and passion for encouraging artistic expression.
Lisa Marini describes herself as a travelling artist. Her debut EP 'From The Bedroom Den' was released late last year. From what started out as an experiment in her bedroom, her songs have found their way onto a documentary in New Zealand and into juke boxes around Europe.
