David Owen Morgan
David Owen Morgan
David Owen Morgan’s solo roving guitar strides from grit to glitter. His sound blooms from roots in folk, rock and contemporary Americana. Accomplished songwriting evokes sympathy for the misfits brought to life in his songs, and belie his relative inexperience as a fresh faced up-and-comer.

Nathalie Miranda
Nathalie Miranda
Nathalie Miranda, a fantastically talented singer/songwriter from London, writing fresh, provocative words and melodies, which when coupled with her vocal range, give a new and exciting sound. Nathalie grew up in North London listening to her mum’s record collection. She says "I loved listening to Etta James, Aretha Franklin, Prince, plus big vocalists like Whitney Houston, Cher, and more recently Christina Aguilera, and at the age of three, I decided to be a singer." One of her biggest influences is legendary Queen frontman, Freddie Mercury, and this is reflected in her high-energy performances, and passionate vocal delivery.

"I want to make music that matches who I am."

Musically it is distinctly…Nathalie Miranda.... The voice to melt radios, the beats that drop either side of the Atlantic. Her new three-track release, ‘Bulletproof’, is just an example of her versatility and skill as an artist. Each track shows a different side to the diminutive singer, leaving you wanting more.

A bold, beautiful home grown answer to the US Uber-Divas. Full-fledged soul belter, the kind they don't make much anymore.
