Afnan Prince

A gifted singer/songwriter from the Northeast of England, Afnan has been has been honing his craft for many years, with the utmost care and patience. Armed with lucidity and emotional depth, a story teller like no other. His unique ability to form a bond with his audience in minutes is truly remarkable. The single is accompanied by a music video of stunning proportions. Afnan has teamed up with model Cait Apps and Director Michael Sreenen to create an aesthetic masterpiece bursting with tension and nostalgia. His previous releases have received airplay on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 2 & BBC Introducing and his career has seen him nominated for the songwriter award at the UBEAT awards and crowned winner of 'Best new artist of the year' by Darkus Magazine. Afnan’s song “She” was also used on the ITV show Diamond Geezers and Gold dealers. Having recently penned an exciting management deal with songwriters Elliot and Jonathan Cohen-Gold (Signed to Downtown Music Publishing) we will certainly be seeing more of this hugely talented artist in 2018 and should certainly be earmarked as a ‘one to watch’ in 2018.


Tori Cross

Birmingham-born Tori Cross is a dynamic new singer, songwriter. Her debut single ‘Italy’ created a strong core of fans worldwide. Her follow-up ’Sunrise’ - in collaboration with the producers Duo-Tone - filled UK dance-floors. Tori has spent the past 6-months writing and recording a new collection of songs for her debut album due out in 2019. She describes her music style as minimalist soul RnB and draws her influences from such artists as Lianne La Havas, Etta James, and Amy Winehouse. Tori was singled out by BBC Introducing to perform a radio session on BBC Merseyside and at the BBC Introducing Biggest Weekend Fringe at Liverpool’s Cavern Club. A four-piece band accompanies Tori for her live appearances.


Ruby's Club  

Ruby’s Club are an alternative rock band from West London. With a sound that mixes the brooding electronics of James Blake with the lush psychedelia of Tame Impala and the thoughtful, inquisitive songwriting of Radiohead, the band enjoyed an exciting first year in 2018, getting their first few gigs under their belt and playing live on the radio. The two-piece consists of Lewis Cochrane on vocals and guitar and Tom Bayliss on keyboards and vocals with drum beats programmed on to the NI Machine. Be prepared for an immersive set of progressive music unlike anything you've heard before.
