Mount Forel are a heady mixture of CAN, Dinosaur Junior, War on Drugs, Districts - all sorts of stuff really. They're from the US, Japan, New Zealand & the Wirral, but based in London and there's a great album from the band coming soon.
Mount Forel, whose latest single ‘Witney’ won the listeners’ vote on the Amazing Radio Audition show and is picking up support on Radio X’s John Kennedy/Xposure show. The band perform unique experiential gigs, which include having the audience paint while they perform, plus other concepts involving blindfolds and more

Cambridge singer-songwriter Mark Shepherd plays his original brand of thought-provoking Acoustic rock/Indie-Folk/Americana at festivals and venues across the UK and USA. His strong, distinctive vocal is complimented by powerful and melodic acoustic guitar and his songs often explore the darker side of life and the world in general. Mark and his music are sure to stay with you long after you finish listening.

Live Sollid is the mind behind the name Solpsiche. She is one of the pioneers of progressive electronic music in the Oslo underground scene and has proven herself to be an unstoppable creative force in the fields between electronic and vocal experimentation. Coupled with a strong sense of rhythmic energy and harmonic drive, her music is as hypnotic as it is energizing.
