Ed Poole -
Sonically dense with brooding guitar lines and soaring vocals, Ed Poole is a musician unafraid to push the dynamics and image of the modern day singer-songwriter.
Ed embraces the DIY ethic, self-producing and creating songs that toe the line between punk rock and more atmospheric, darker tones.
Beneath the surface, there is so much more to discover in the layers of the songs of this Liverpool based musician.
Benny Monteux -
Punk rock for pop lovers from Edinburgh, Scotland FFO Frank Turner, Rob Lynch and Vinnie Caruana.
Benny has toured all over the UK, racking up notable support slots including Dave McPherson (InMe), Ben Marwood (Xtra Mile Recordings), Deaf Havana and Matt Pryor as well as a string of sold out headline shows in his hometown.
