For a London girl who kick-started her career on the Internet, Lily Allen is flying higher than ever. Since emerging in2006 with her iconic debut No 1 single ‘Smile’, Lily has gone on to sell over 5 million albums worldwide. Her cheeky songs, down-to-earth lyrics and dramatic sense of fashion earned her a place at the top of the charts and have seen her climb her way out of Internet-based cultdom, into mainstream critical acclaim.
Her huge success in the UK not only quickly spread around the world but also helped shift the musical axis towards young female artists. Her talent as a songwriter was acknowledged in 2010 when she won 3 Ivor Novello Awards; that same year she played her final headline live show – at the O2 Arena, and then announced she was taking a break from making and performing music.
In 2013 Lily returned to the studio, having spent the previous 3 years raising her young family and establishing her own record label.

After the band's break-up, Slash went on to critical acclaim in his personal project, Slash's Snakepit, and global success with supergroup Velvet Revolver. 2010 saw Slash release his eponymous debut solo album to widespread critical and commercial acclaim.

Chase (Will) & Status (Saul) have been hailed as 'the most exciting producers in the UK today'. They met at Manchester University through their mutual love of drum and bass in the mid nineties and have DJ'd ever since. Their frenetic formula of raging riffs and high octane breakdowns earned their acclaimed album 'No More Idols' double platinum status, whilst their baffling, on-the-fly manipulation of dirty, ferocious beats has attracted a devoted global fan base, who live and breathe that tumultuous bass driven sound.
Chase & Status (Live) tour dates
Friendly Fires lie somewhere between the poppiness of Snap!, the funkiness of Prince, and the electronic dance-iness of Daft Punk. Friendly Fires were the first unsigned band ever to play Transmission on Channel 4, shown on 9th November 2007. Their self-titled debut album was nominated for the 2009 Mercury Awards and the band have since gone from strength to strength, nominated for two Brit Awards in 2010, and releasing their Top 10 album, 'Pala', in 2011.

It takes someone with foresight and imagination to pull off the cross-pollination of hip hop and r&b beats with classic song writing, but in doing so Mr Hudson hit upon a winning formula. Following huge success - 3 records in the top 50 at one point - Mr Hudson (Or Ben to his mum) took a break in 2011 after a gig at which he jumped off stage and broke his foot, turning his attention to writing and production for the likes of Pixie Lott and Wretch 32.
He's back in 2013 with a new single as influenced by classic Motown and Stax Records as it is by the likes of Mayor Hawthorne and D’Angelo, and a new album in the works. The pedigree of artists Mr Hudson has previously collaborated with is stellar, and a testament to his many layers and versatility.
