They also won the Ivor Novello Album Award in 2013 and have received a string of nominations over the years from the Brits and Grammys. While critical success is always welcome, commercial success came with their 2nd album; 2014's 'This Is All Yours', which reached no.1 on the UK album chart, while 2017's 'Relaxer' reached no.3. They then enlisted an array of artists from the world of Hip Hop and Rap to remix and reinterpret the material from 'Relaxer' for 2018's 'Reduxer'.

No-one outside of Bristol knew that such a place existed until the mid nineties. That all changed with the release of the stunning debut 'Dummy'. The over all sound is intensely dark and haunting - no-one else can evoke desolation, pain and anguish the way they do. Live Performance is completely focused - they are masters of the mood they have chosen for themselves.

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds
Needing no introduction, Noel is best known as the guitarist, occasional singer and songwriting backbone of Oasis. Since Oasis split, Noel has carved out a successful solo career under the guise of the High Flying Birds, taking the name from the song 'High Flying Bird' by Jefferson Airplane and as a homage to Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac. Noel released a highly successful debut eponymous album in 2011 which became the second biggest-selling rock album of that year in the UK, just behind Coldplay's 'Mylo Xyloto'. Several critics felt it was his best work since '(What's The Story) Morning Glory?' His second release, 'Chasing Yesterday' in 2015, reached no.1 on the UK album chart and the success story contined with 2017's 3rd album 'Who Built The Moon?', also reaching no.1.

London-based four-piece The Vaccines firmly believe that less is more, with songs like 'Wreckin' Bar (Ra Ra Ra)' clocking in at under two minutes! Their fast and furious brand of giddy rock 'n' roll could almost be the sound of the Libertines and Ramones falling down the stairs at 100MPH. The band released their debut album What Did You Expect From The Vaccines in 2011, which became the biggest selling debut album by a band that year, while the 2012 follow up, Come Of Age, reached number one in the UK album charts. They have continued to have top 5 chart albums with 2015's English Graffiti and 2018's Combat Sports. "On record the Vaccines wallow in the echo-drenched wooziness made famous by the Jesus And Mary Chain, but live they reach back further through pop's past glories, stirring the shimmering girl group drama conjured by Phil Spector and scuzzed up by the Ramones." -The Guardian.

Rae Morris is a young singer/songwriter from Blackpool. Learning piano at an early age and forever underestimating her ability, Rae found a voice she didn’t know she had.

Cleverly matching her inimitable voice to songs of new experiences, those defining challenges like love and not always being able to have the answers, Rae is the epitome of raw and claims nothing else.
