Franc Cinelli
Franc Cinelli
Bucking the trend with his free-wheeling alternative folk, London based Franc Cinelli excels in the sincerest and most heartfelt song craft.

Having recently completed an extensive European and North American tour including a sold out show at the Living Room in New York City, a televised performance at the Blue Note in Milan & two shows at the Royal Albert Hall. He's gathered recent support from BBC Radio 2 (Dermot O'Leary) and WFUV in New York amongst others. Music Week magazine calls him "a breathe of fresh air".

Megan Rutherford
Megan Rutherford
Megan comes from Kent but is currently based between London and Manchester.

Gripping the listener with compelling lyrics of the complexities and realities of female fantasies, desire and oppression, Megan fuses her own dissonant experiences with folk-inspired fiction. Her unparalleled indie sound complements the melancholic lyrics with hauntingly low vocals, gentle, echoing harmonies and an undulating piano line.

Alongside being influenced by the rich, lower vocal tones of Lana Del Rey and the beautiful falsettos of James Blake and Kate Bush, her warm and eerie chord progressions mirror the parallelism in songs by Radiohead and the pianistic drama and tensions of Chopin’s preludes.

Growing up, Megan’s household constantly listened to music from all different genres, infiltrating into her own pieces. Her exposure to classical music particularly through studying voice and piano at Junior Trinity Conservatoire and participating in national youth choirs have provided opportunities to perform at a plethora of live concerts, most prominently as Carmen in Bizet’s opera, at the Cadogan Hall in 2017. However, despite her classical upbringing underpinning elements of Megan’s style, she has found the genre didn’t fulfil her own creative vision and aims to break free from tradition and curate her own path.
