ESE & The Vooduu People - www.facebook.com/ESE666.vooduu
Graduating from London’s most demanding performing arts school — the streets, as a busker — singer-songwriter Ese Okorodudu (vocals, guitar) is backed by the incendiary Vooduu People, being ex-Noisette Pharoah Russell (drums) and Basile Petite (bass).
Born and raised in South London, Ese has seen it all, done most of it, and is no stage school product but the real, streetwise thing. A fiery, sensitive, poetic yet wildly entertaining songwriter, she is also what the legendary hip hop engineer/producer/beatmaster Jay Burnett (Beastie Boys, Run DMC, LL Cool J, Afrika Bambaataa etc etc) describes as “the best natural singer I’ve heard in 30 years”. She and her band are inspired by a range of legends from Jimi Hendrix to Amy Winehouse, Skunk Anansie to Erykah Badu.
A killer live act, they are signed to Quadrafon Music Industries. Their debut single Fairytale is produced by Jay Burnett and released on October 27th. The video is directed by Andy Lee.

Reckless Jacks - www.facebook.com/recklessjacks
Reckless Jacks are a young indie-pop rock band with an old soul.
Matt (vocalist/guitar), Magnus (lead guitar), Cece (bass) and Dan (drums) came to Britain from all four corners of Europe – and found each other in London.
Drawing from their different cultures and visions, this truly unique melting pot of talent makes songs that sit so comfortably inside you, you’ll think you’ve heard them somewhere before.
This is strong, introspective music that harks back to a not so distant era when songs made you feel, get up and dance.
Matt's coarse and powerful vocals will capture your heart – you’ll be humming their anthemic guitar riffs for days – and their emotive lyrics will take you on a journey steeped in melody.
