T. Thomason is a pop artist living between Halifax and Toronto. Winner of CTV's hit music reality show “The Launch”, T. has impressed fans with his emotional and highly energetic live performances throughout his 11 year career.
T. released his self-titled album this past September. Described by Halifax’s The Coast as “equal parts scar tissue and sparkles”, Thomason’s latest release is deeply vulnerable and honest. A must-hear for anyone who has wondered who they are, and what’s to come.
"An important voice in Canadian music." - CBC Music
"The [Birdsong] music video make the track's journey of self-discovery feel tangible and even more powerful than the track's gentle exploration...It's rare that pop gets such a solid grip on a moment of transformation, and T. Thomason makes this small joy feel massive." - Popdust
“T. is a reminder that you can one day be the kid being bullied and the next day be the guy who is a rock star on national TV.” - The Loop
"Today, T. conveys a sense of self-fulfillment and confidence because he is truthful to himself."
A Singer/songwriter from Norwich blending modern Americana with Country undertones. After years of honing her performance skills at festivals such as Glastonbury, Red Rooster and Latitude, Lucy most recently headlined The Den Stage at Cambridge Folk Festival and received a “rapturous reception”. With two EPs under her belt, her debut EP being named ‘Best UK EP of the Year’ by Country site Belles & Gals and her second EP gaining a 5* review from Maverick Magazine, Lucy is set to release her third EP towards the end of the year.
"For a young lady from the Flatlands of East Anglia she sure can write and sing a Hill Country Song worthy of Allison Krauss or even Emmylou Harris." - Rocking Magpie
“Songwriting of the highest order, Lucy has managed to make Country feel like pop.” - Gary Standley, BBC Music Introducing in Norfolk
Indie rock band Orders introduced themselves over the summer with the release of their debut single ‘Sound Of The Sunrise’ (May) and the follow up ‘Rolling Down’ (Sep) which were both championed by the likes of BBC Introducing, Amazing Radio, Hoxton Radio and Fortitude Magazine, the boys gear up for their 3rd instalment with the banging single, ‘Little E’.
They effortlessly combine indie rock madness with fresh faced funk. and after years of playing the gig circuit, the young band get ready to launch next single from 6 official and independently recorded singles produced by Michael Smith at RYP Recordings.
Having known each other for 14 years and growing up with many different influences from The Rolling Stones, The Heavy, The Black Keys & The Libertines, the boys started the band playing at the end of Tommy’s garden after school. After many hours rehearsing and playing with different sounds and name changes, they’ve now evolved into something they know they can build upon, landing on a sound and style that works for them both in a live setting and in the studio.
An extraordinary new British artist. A vibe of Joni Mitchell with Meddle-era Pink Floyd and the poignant storytelling of Nick Drake.
“When Pearl lets her voice fly around a melody it cuts right to the heart of her songs. At other times it’s almost vernacular as she tells a story around her music” Richard Engler, Autonomy
"Pearl Fish is the kind of rare artist that has the ability to touch your soul when she sings and transport you to a magical place." Yap, Pink Punk, One Minute Silence.
