Intent on completing the work and honoring her grandfather's legacy, she returned to London and enlisted the aid of friends Gilbert Vierich, Graham Dickson, Sebastian Pringle and Mimi Borelli, and together they worked to finish his opera. Along the way, they became inspired by the dark, folksy sounds of the Spanish instruments and, combining them with booming basslines, the band was born.

Watsky appearing at this event

George Watsky is a rapper, writer and performer from San Francisco now living in Los Angeles. A versatile lyricist who switches between silly and serious, technically complex and simply heartfelt, George won the Youth Speaks Grand Slam Finals and the Brave New Voices National Poetry Slam in 2006. Rapping under the name 'Watsky,' George first released a jazz-hip hop record with his band Invisible Inc in 2007 and then the self-titled 'Watsky' in 2010, which peaked at #7 on the iTunes hip hop charts. George's fast rapping soon went viral and led to two appearances on the Ellen Show, a slot on Last Call with Carson Daly, and an exploding online profile.

Scoring a UK no.1 album with their debut back in 2009, their success story continued with two further top 5 albums and a top 20 album. 2019 saw the release of 'Five', unsurprisingly their fifth album.
