Belle Roscoe

Brother-Sister duo, Matty and Jules radiate a unique and mesmerising chemistry, clearly the product of a lifetimes worth of shared experiences. Both siblings’ possess extraordinary vocals and sure know how to work a crowd. Multi-talented musicians, with a wealth of great material they’re one of the most captivating acts to see this year.

Joanna Cooke

Motown legend Martha Reeves summed it up perfectly, describing Joanna Cooke as “the baby girl singing the blues". Joanna, much like her South West blonde counterpart Joss Stone, she demonstrates that true soul and emotional connection is not simply constrained by colour or creed. Moreover, her self-penned songs leave a lasting impression on audiences, by dint of their raw honesty and song craft.

Drive and talent combined with her contemporary sound blending Soul, Jazz & Blues now sees Joanna performing Festivals and notable venues around the UK and supporting big name artists such as Tom Jones, Rag N Bone Man, Martha Reeves & Paloma Faith. 

2022 saw the release of Joanna's 6 track EP 'Kaleidoscope', With stylish arrangements and production from well respected polymath musician/producer/arranger Mark Edwards, (Katie Melua, Carleen Anderson, Beth Rowley) with single releases reaching the UK Soul Music Charts

Top 30 and picking up international airplay.

Amy Taylor 

Amy Taylor is a singer songwriter and pianist, from a classical background. She is a versatile singer with a wide vocal range and many colours to her voice. Her original music is full of rich chord progressions and spans across a wide range of genres, drawing influences from Soul, Soft Rock, Blues, Jazz, Pop and Country. She captivates the audience not only through her effortless vocal control and rich chord progressions, but her songs are emotionally honest - she writes about mental health struggles that she has faced, as giving a voice to these things can bring people together to find connection which is so important in this day and age.
