Shannon Hynes

Shannon Hynes is an independent, Welsh songwriter and artist drawing influences from the Country, Americana and Folk genres. Shannon pairs an organic, traditional instrumentation with her deep intricate lyrics, all upheld by the dulcet innocence of her vocal. Receiving comparisons to modern leaders in the genre such as Kacey Musgraves and Clare Bowen, she has also been likened to legendary musical icons such as Dolly Parton and Emmylou Harris. 

The unapologetic way in which Shannon conducts herself and her music exemplifies why she has gained such great respect on the UK Country scene and is described as the ‘one to watch in 2022’.

With iTunes #1’s, headline shows, national and international radio play, recognition in the forms of ‘Hits Brits Champion’ on Country Hits Radio and a ’UK Country Music Spotlight Award’ nomination, Shannon looks forward to 2022 with lots of shows, releases and exciting new projects. 

Nik and Sam

Influenced by an eccentric blend of bluegrass festivals, classic rock, and front porch pickin', the girls music roots were planted early. 

Virtuoso harmonies came naturally and by the age of 10, the girls were sculpting an "Everly Brothers-esque" piece of instrumentation and vocal blend. 

Possessing talent far beyond their young age, the girls soon began writing their own music, infusing their individual influences into their style....Sam's melodic banjo and Nik's driving guitar rhythms embody the spirit of passion. Based in Nashville, TN, Nik and Sam continue to pursue their love of music around the world.
