It's hard to believe that skinny indie lad Graham Coxon is now in his forties, but there it is - and a brief glance at his CV will lessen the surprise somewhat: a career with Blur spanning 13 years and a massively adored solo performer since 1998. The multi-instrumentalist has produced a variety of albums and continues to be a solid and influential figure in modern British music.

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.

Gruff Rhys is a prolific and inventive Welsh musician whose music encompasses a range of styles, including psychedelia, folk and electro-pop. His third album, Hotel Shampoo, won the Artrocker Album of the Year award and the Welsh Music Prize in 2011. Gruff is well known as the singer and main songwriter for Super Furry Animals, and he also formed Neon Neon, the electro-pop collaborative project with Boom Bip. In 2014, Gruff released American Interior, an album, book, film and app, exploring the life of John Evans, who left Wales for north America in 1792 in search of a lost tribe of Welsh-speaking Native Americans. Then in 2016, despite a busy schedule touring again with the Super Furries, he found time to compose the soundtrack album for Andy Goddard's film Set Fire To The Stars.
