Sophisticated pop with a modern feel and appeal” -GET READY TO ROCK

Charlie Austen

Singer-songwriter Charlie Austen performs uniquely dynamic folk-soul with beautifully blues-infused vocals. Having toured with Squeeze, Glenn Tilbrook & Bryan Ferry and as a regular member of Nine Below Zero, Charlie creates dynamic finger-picking folk-soul with an emphasis on carefully crafted lyrics, intricate guitar parts and unusual melodies.


Award winning, international recording artist 'Dorsten' is an Indie/Folk/Rock brother-sister band from Pheonix Arizona.

In March 2022 Sophie and Alex had the opportunity to travel to Londonto record at both RAK Studios and Abbey Road Studios and to perform at several London venues.  Dorsten have also received significant backing and endorsement from Alice Cooper, winning huge praise for their recent alternative cover of his song  “I Never Cry” , describing it as “haunting and beautiful”.

“An ethereal voice that just pierces through the fabric of reality... ...the lyrics are nothing short of genius! Very good word play and very descriptive lyrics that easily conveys Sophie's emotions, supported by Alex's amazing production and arrangement."
