Calling himself Saint Raymond after the street he grew up in and his grandfather, young singer-songwriter Callum Burrows’s meteoric rise saw him swap the pubs of his native Nottingham for support slots touring with Ed Sheeran.
He stormed into the spotlight in 2014 after his single, Young Blood, was named Zane Lowe's 'Hottest Record in the World' (Radio 1). His debut album, also titled Young Blood, finally followed in the Summer of 2015, with critics making favourable comparisons to Miles Kane, Bastille, The Police and Simple Minds.
The self taught Nottingham singer/songwriter's story started with a fortunate accident. After the discovery of a dusty piano her older sister had left in storage, Indiana began to teach herself to play. Easily picking up the chords and using those shapes, she wrote her first songs and discovered her unique voice.
A stream of successful singles have seen her videos racking up over 1 million views on YouTube alongside acclaim across the blogosphere and being championed by Zane Lowe, Rob Da Bank, Annie Mac, Huw Stephens and Phil & Alice among others on Radio 1.
Nottingham lo-fi grunge trio Cai Burns, Lucy Hatter and Lawrence English are Kagoule. Sound-wise they recall the energy and ideas of Bikini Kill, the sugar-dusted grunge of Smashing Pumpkins and the angular rhythms and confrontational post-hardcore blueprint of Fugazi and Slint with Dinosaur Jr. stepping on the pedal. In 2014 Kagoule signed to legendry extreme metal label Earache, where they share a home amongst sonic pioneers such as Napalm Death, Godflesh, Fudgetunnel and Carcass.
