2018 saw Mollie working on “All Or Nothing, The Mod Musical”, which had a West End run for 6 months, as Vocal Coach. She was also a part of The Old Grey Whistle Test Anniversary programme last year which has lead to working more closely with the great Bob Harris and Under The Apple Tree.  

After several tours under her belt, she is currently working on her second album ready for next year.

Liv Austen

With performances at C2C, Cornbury, Black Deer and more in the last couple of years, as well as support slots for Sarah Darling, Mikaela Davis and Drew Holcomb, she is gaining fans by the day thanks to her catchy hooks, distinct sound and honest lyrics. She will be performing songs from her highly celebrated debut album which was released last year. Is the artist who came to London for the drama, but stayed for the music. To say that she made the right decision is turning into quite an understatement.

The Norwegian-born singer/songwriter arrived in the UK in 2010 to study acting. However, Liv's greatest love - music - took her on a slightly different path. After her first EP release, and performances around the UK (including a set in front of a packed 800 capacity venue in the early days of C2C), she quickly found herself as one of the hottest properties on the ever-expanding British music scene. She has the pop sensibility to cross over to the widest possible audience, which she proved with the release of her debut album A Moment Of Your Time.

The album, transcending genres, has been met with rave reviews by press and fans alike, with a 5 star review in Maverick Magazine, among others - and has already reached a million streams worldwide.

Liv will be performing stripped back versions of the songs from the album.
