One of the pioneers of '90s Brit pop, Liam Gallagher rose to fame as the lead singer of the rock band Oasis, and later as the singer of Beady Eye, before performing as a solo artist after the dissolution of both previous bands.

DMA’S (dee-em-ayes) are Johnny Took, Matt Mason and Tommy O’Dell, three friends who came together making nostalgic garage pop in a bedroom in Newtown, Australia.
Having met whilst playing in other bands, DMA’S are three writers, three mates, three frontmen – all with a common sense of purpose and musicality. Writing a few songs together, the band demoed them in Johnny’s bedroom-studio, gaining instant attention - all before putting out an official track or playing a single show.
Forming in 2017, the Blackburn quartet consists of George Richards (vocals), Brad Hayes (lead guitar), Joe Mitchell (bass) and Matt Cottam (drums). Already receiving widespread attention, their music reflects their Blackburn roots; the gritty sound of the post-industrial north, blended with melodic guitars and the stark honesty of punk rock.
