Italian born, South American rooted storyteller based in London, singing to the world.
​​Started my career trying to get some sound out of a cheap Magyar red guitar found in a second hand shop in a village South of Rome.
​​Introduced to the great 60s and 70s international music by my mother, introduced to sophisticated Italian pop by my father, the result is a strange mix you might want to check out.​​ ​​
Extensive live experience: 2 UK Tours, concerts in Russia, Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland, Latvia, Belgium, France, Denmark, US while promoting my project.
Reached more than 2 million plays on Spotify only, as 2017.​​
​​The latest EP – Square One has been released the 1st of February 2017 on all main digital stores and in a limited signed number of physical copies.
​​The EP contains the single Laura in double version (English and Spanish).

​​Life is full of colours, pick yours.

The Routines
The Routines
We are The Routines. Three friends from Caernarfon, North Wales. Dion Jones on Lead Vocals and Guitar, Jamie Thomas on Bass Guitar and Gethin Magee on Drums and Backing Vocals. Influenced by the humdrum life of full-time menial work in a place where even that is scarce and sought after. Big listeners of Pete Doherty's work, Sleaford Mods and other hard-hitting bands with spot on social observations, we have found what we like to write and sing about.
We are the working-class band that has been missing from the scene for a while now. We like who and what we are and we do not hide behind a story of ourselves in our lyrics or in our demeanour. Our live shows are what we live for and they are extremely energetic. Jumping off platforms and into the crowd is a regular occurrence.
Having released two English singles through Youtube videos, we have just released our first Welsh single. A song about the 9 to 5 life in a job you hate.
What are we working on at the moment? A few more Welsh singles with a view to record an English album early in 2018.

“Delicious melodies matched to impeccable production, it's the sound of a fresh talent coming into her own, stretching her wings and testing out her boundaries.” – Almost 20, Clash Magazine

"Unique, fresh and the sound of a brand new artist not afraid to test the waters of the musical sea." - Almost 20, UMA Music

Jacklines
Jacklines
Jacklines are an Alternative / Indie / Rock band from Warwickshire, UK. The band started out when singer-songwriter Matt Parsons teamed up with guitarist James Cooper in 2013. After a a year of jamming and playing with various other musicians they teamed up with drummer Rudolph Gucci Suc, who's heavy rock / metal roots gave an interesting twist to the music that Matt and James had been writing. After several months Laszlo joined on the bass and complete the line-up.

Jacklines are releasing their debut EP 'The Way Home' in August 2016. The four tracks are an eclectic mix of alternative / rock, which have catchy choruses, punchy guitar riffs and solos, dramatic build ups, and soaring harmonies. There are hints of wide ranges of influences from bands such as Pink Floyd, Turin Breaks, Ben Howard and Bears Den, which will leave you wanting more.

The first single is 'What We're Told' which is a political protest which voices many peoples thoughts of the frustration of being lied to by the powers that be. A song which seems very apt for the recent occurrences in the UK.
