Dan Caplen

Dan Caplen appearing at this event

Dan Caplen possesses a talent for yearning, confessional lyrics wrapped within a blend of neo-soul and R&B influences - all delivered with the gravelly blues tones of an artist twice his age. Born to a mother from the Caribbean island of Saint Vincent and an English father, Dan’s sound is equally as inspired by the leftfield pop nous of James Blake and SBTRKT as it is by John Legend’s emotionally honest R&B. Most of his current material has been crafted alongside his friend and producer Hoost, while other collaborators include Stephen McGregor (Lianne La Havas, Ne-Yo), Dave Tozer (John Legend), James Newman (Rudimental) and Simon Aldred (Sam Smith).

Kawala appearing at this event

Alternative indie / folk two piece from the London borough of Camden. 'Jim and Daniel grew up partying together. Now singing together, they create songs with a strong narrative and a sweet purity runs through their acoustic sounds. Proudly representing their Camden roots, the North London twang is carried through their songs. Beauty is formed through their simplistic way of arranging a song, stripping back to basics of an instrumental and a vocal. The kind of raw vocals that warm your belly and make the hairs on your arms stand on end.'

Brooding, confessional, indie, Blakey's music pairs sensual imagery and playful melodies with a smooth, dreamlike sound. Classic and electronica grooves underpin powerful rich tenor vocals, driven guitars, and gorgeous ambient synths to create a dreamlike sound in Blakey's music.
