Never miss another 'Gabrielle Aplin' show
Talented Wiltshire singer-songwriter Gabrielle Aplin became something of an internet sensation, notching up over 3 million plays on You Tube with her gentle acoustic cover versions of songs by Paramore and You Me At Six. She then went on to reach no.1 in the UK singles chart in 2012 with her haunting cover of Frankie's 'The Power Of Love', thanks to heavy exposure through that year's John Lewis Christmas commercial.
Not wishing to be labelled as a mere covers girl, she went on to release her own self-penned or co-written material, with two hit albums, 'English Rain' and 'Light Up The Dark', along with a string of EPs.
Her breathtaking combination of beautiful vocals and self-taught piano and guitar musicianship draws influences from Damien Rice, Jamie Cullum, James Morrison to Paramore and Joni Mitchell.

Dubbed 'the UK's answer to John Legend', South Londoner Josh Osho is a naturally gifted singer-songwriter with a life-story packed full of the stuff that films are made of. Born to a half Northern Irish, half Nigerian mother and Nigerian father, Josh Osho has had the life experience of a person twice his age. Following an unconventional and often tempestuous childhood, Josh went from being in and out of home at the age of 16 and dealing drugs from notorious half-way house Ebenezer hotel at 17, to signing a deal with Island Records at 18, finding himself recording in a studio with two members Wu Tang Clan at 19, and releasing his debut album 'L.I.F.E.' at 20.

Formed after a 6 week back-packing trip through Southern Europe and Scandinavia during the summer of 2009 - vocalists Chris Hillier and Robin Southwell funded their way round by busking. Describing themselves as a ‘loud folk enthused rock band, without a lot of drones and emphasis on vocal harmonies’, Hillier and Southwell's harmonies craft The Bronze Medal's sound and help drive the tracks beautifully. Consistently warm guitar sounds and textures also contribute to their signature ‘slow indie build’ - echoing shades of Explosions In The Sky colliding with the melancholic melodies of Death Cab For Cutie.
