Anna Rest Easy
Anna Rest Easy
"Launched in August 2013, gloom-pop singer/songwriter Anna Rest Easy takes inspiration from the dark and devious. After the success of her EP "Shrink Wrap" (Aug 2014), and her debut album "Retrospectre" (Aug 2015), she is performing regularly and working on a second album to further depress the people of London.".

Jumpin Jesse Jones
Jumpin Jesse Jones
Jumping Jesse Jones is a kick ass solo acoustic performer who’s guitar playing treads a thin red line between the funk bass of Larry Graham and the acoustic wizardry of John Renbourne. This unique hybrid of styles creates the effect of a full backing band. His voice veers precariously between Tom Waits and Elvis Costello with songs dealing with such diverse subjects as child abduction and biblical visions. He is also not adverse to mixing in a bit of overtone chanting (singing two notes at once) if applied tastefully! Past incarnations include bass player for London punksters The Cuckoo Jives and Loretta Heywood (Bomb The Bass). ....

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.
