Zoe West & The Hanging Baskets
Hailing from all over the UK, Zoe & The Baskets have been playing together for just over a year in and around London. Their lyric-driven indie pop has reverberated around empty rooms across the country, and more recently some half full ones (a couple of weeks ago our girlfriends came). Having been a gigging singer-songwriter for around five years, Zoe started an Actor-Musicianship degree at Rose Bruford College, and met the rest of the band.

Hobo And The Hippies
You can be assured that a mix of songs is covered in your typical Hobos gig, with some banter and good British humour thrown in between songs; Billy's percussion work will have you tapping your feet and “Dead Man’s Eye” will have you stomping your feet to the rhythm and make you feel like you could easily be on a rickety pirate ship being swayed about by the rough English sea while clinking and spilling beer and rum, while “Pale Lady” pulls you in and gets you to really appreciate the musicianship of the band. Then you have “Bolt Down the Hatches”, a crowd favourite, that gets everyone swaying and singing along. This is a song that really shows off their three-part harmonies, something you don’t often see with other bands, and is the sort of song you want being played while you’re getting ready for work in the morning.
So while creating original folk and country numbers with the authenticity, character and twang of string instruments is their calling, managing to get a smiling, singing, stomping and swaying audience is their forte."
Having recently signed to Intune Addicts (Management) & ATC (Booking) and with more collaborations to follow, FØNX has recently been in the studio recording new material with Grammy Award winning producer Tommaso Coliva (Muse).
Influences include - Frank Ocean, D'angelo, Kanye West, Childish Gambino, Prince, Tame Impala and many more.
A singer/songwriter, spoken word artist, DJ, – his poetry and infectious personality won’t disappoint.
