Acclaimed as one of the most important composers and performers of all time, Neil Young could almost be two artists in one body. His work ranges from the beautiful and moving folk sounds he has produced as a solo artist and with Crosby, Stills and Nash to the powerful and energetic rock which has often been the result of his collaboration with Crazy Horse and which earned him the nickname 'the Godfather of Grunge'.
Neil Young & Promise Of The Real tour dates
An American indie rock quintet singing songs of love, loss and life. The Ohio band formed in 1999 and have been influenced by the likes of Nick Cave, Lou Reed, Joy Division and Tindersticks.
The National tour dates
Winner of the 2013 Brits Critics's Choice award, London born Tom started out as a classically trained pianist, before turning his hand to more contemporary material. Growing up, he found himself influenced by classic piano singer-songwriters Elton John and Billy Joel, along with the blues, folk and rock sounds of Tom Waits, Dylan and Springsteen. The end result is a powerful and emotional pianist and performer, following in the footsteps of Ed Harcourt with subtle hints of Jeff Buckley.
Tom Odell tour dates
Powerful Nashville country-folk singer-songwriter, drawing on influences from Linda Ronstadt, Gram Parsons, Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell. Caitlin tells stories of an evolving country. She speaks in a new generation of American twang of young American alcoholics falling in love at backyard weddings. The stories are old themes voiced with a new ease and energetic pace. Hers are evolutionary stories in surprising but truthful directions, where sometimes dead flowers mean so much more than live ones.
Caitlin Rose tour dates
Lead by Matthew Houck from Brooklyn, this experimental band make haunting, epic and triumphant songs. For fans of Bonnie Prince Billy, Iron & Wine and Bon Iver.
Phosphorescent tour dates
Flyte is a young alternative four piece from London. Rooted in classic pop songwriting and propelled by the sound and sensibilities of New Wave, Flyte's songs are infectiously melodic and compellingly lyrical.
Flyte tour dates
Known for his production work on albums for The Vaccines, Kings Of Leon and Laura Marling, and for his long-term collaborations with Ryan Adams, Ethan is also a solo performer in his own right, leaning towards Folk.
Ethan Johns tour dates
The Webb Sisters singing and playing (harp, guitar, mandolin and more) draw from the folk and pop traditions of Britain and the United States. Among their multitude of achievements, The Webb Sisters represented the UK at America's 400th Anniversary celebrations, contributed songs to several major TV shows, recorded alongside the likes of Dolly Parton and Rufus Wainwright for a Judy Collins tribute album and have performed on major concert tours with artists such as Leonard Cohen, Jamie Cullum, James Morrison and Jason Mraz.
The Webb Sisters tour dates
A bohemian troubadour in a long and sometimes glorious tradition. Maybe you've seen him busking on a street corner, and stopped for a moment, caught by a delicate web of soulful music spun for any passing ear.
Think about Jeff Buckley, Ray LaMontagne, Nick Drake, Ben Harper, Damien Rice. Think of the grit and soul of Richard Ashcroft, the raw emotiveness of Neil Diamond. It's the singer and the song. Jack Savoretti is something special. Just one man and his guitar. This is pure music from the source.
Jack Savoretti tour dates
A folk-inspired five piece with comparisons being made from Keane to Arcade Fire. To Kill A King’s songs begin with lead singer Ralph Pelleymounter’s acoustic compositions, around which the band work in drums, bass, electric guitar, synth and other instruments. They focus on Pelleymounter’s lyrical narrative, with accompaniments ranging from tender instrumentals to climactic orchestral passages including strings, brass and five-part harmonies.
To Kill A King tour dates
Texan band Midlake formed in 1999 after meeting at the University of North Texas. The band were originally influenced by jazz and funk, but after a few band member changes, they began turning their hand to music similar to that of early Radiohead and Grandaddy before beggining to dabble in lo-fi and electronica and seventies vintage-pop. The result is a band who are as diverse as their influences but whose southern charm and imagination constantly shine through.
Midlake tour dates
With his unique voice, classic songwriting ability and evident musicality, North London based Bruno Major is a rare artist, a raw talent that captivates with direct emotion.
Bruno Major tour dates
Acoustic based blissful pop with a hint of Kirsty Macoll.
"One of the country's most promising new voices - utterly beautiful" - Sunday Times.
"Gentle, folky, confidential tone, undershot by a coolness of intelligence and self possession." - The Daily Telegraph.
Lucy Rose tour dates
A trio from British Columbia, Canada, fuse the restless elements of indie, pop and folk with beautiful rhythmic harmonies, delicate guitar lines and a hint of warm electronica. Their complex arrangements are inspired by both classical and modern composers.
