Influenced by the storytelling of great British bands such as The Smiths, The Jam, and Stereophonics, and sporting a rather large rock sound, the boys look forward to sweating/dancing/puking all over stages across their new London home.
"Kolo are one of the most exciting bands to have come out of the South West in a long time. Having seen them live in the UK and the States, I can tell you its a wholehearted excellent show full of great music. They really deserve success." - Vic Morgan, BBC
Award-winning recording artist, Rachael Sage, makes her highly anticipated return to UK shores with the release of her new album, ‘Choreographic’ and a single 'Try Try Try' due for UK release the day after her Discovery performance.
Self-describing her ‘Choreographic’ sound as "ballet-pop", Sage delivers a musically ambitious and emotionally accessible tribute to her very first love: Dance. Fresh off the heels of her 17th song placement on Lifetime TV’s Dance Moms in the States, Sage and her music have reached an ever-widening audience since her previous release ‘Blue Roses’, amassed over 9.5 million views on YouTube.
Rachael is renowned for her entertaining live performance.
Mysterious Siren , Amy Odell, discovered her voice in her late teens. Her sound has evolved into something very unique. Self taught in both piano and guitar, Amy's approach to music is very organic and emotive. A few of her past collaborative projects include Black Sky Down EP, guest vocal appearance on Gavin Fridays Album 'Catholic', as well as a film score for Josephine Halbert's 'Time Travel Boyfriends'.
