8pm – LOTTIE J
Singer Songwriter Lottie Jenkins has been making headlines since she was 8 years old and has been further encouraged by Jamie Cullum when he visited her school and donated his old piano.
One of Lotties first original songs ‘Kiss Your Old Life Away’ made it to the final 10 of The Song Academy’s Singer Songwriter Competition
The Judges comments were as follows
“Love the vibe and they way the chorus went somewhere unexpected”
” I like this and the spiritual imagery”
In 2016 Lottie made it through to the Grand Finale of Future Music’s Singer Songwriter Competition which took place at the renowned Dingwalls in Camden where Ivor Novella Award Winner Mark Hill was one of the judges
At just 15 years old she is certainly one to watch .
Burbank are a young Wiltshire based duo formed in early 2016.
Since that time they have played over 100 gigs across the UK headlining at SplashFest Battersea Park last Summer and were chosen as the warm up act for Torvill & Dean, X Factors’ Jay James and Britain’s Got Talent Finalists Boogie Storm at various Christmas Lights Switch On Events.
Last October they travelled to Spain for JaveaFest and were subsequently invited back this year. Next year they also plan to tour America.
Burbank are often described as the new Lennon & McCartney and have collectively written over 150 original songs. Their first EP Overture will be released on 11th March.
9pm – BEN ROBERTS

Ben has recorded two lives sessions with BBC Introducing and a Mahogany Session.

McGoo, embraced music from an early age. His siblings had a major impact on his love for music along with the influences that abound in his native Scotland. With his brother Brian being a founding member of Simple Minds and his other brother Owen (AKA Owen Paul) having a UK summer smash in 1986 with “You’re My Favourite Waste of Time”, it is no surprise that McGoo has spent his entire life immersed in the music industry and yet still feels like this is just the beginning.
His career in music began with “The Official Tribute to the Blues Brothers”, where he alternated between playing the parts of both Jake and Elwood Blues as he toured with this theater production. In the three years that he was engaged in this production, McGoo toured Europe twice, toured the UK for a full year and participated in a six-month long residency in London’s West End.
These years were extremely important in the fledging years of his own band, McGoozer, as they offered him widespread exposure as well as experiences with which he could base future songs upon. As his time touring with the “Blues Brothers” production slowed down, he focused on creating his own music and honing his craft into the melodic anthems that his name is becoming synonymous with.
Another early career highlight was recording and touring with Mike and the Mechanics. McGoo sang on their studio album “Rewired” and toured all round Europe as the opening act for Phil Collins on his world tour, performing to festivals and stadiums of over 70 thousand people at a time. “It was truly fantastic to get to work with, and get to know, such musical giants as Mike Rutherford and Paul Carrack”, notes McGoo.
Having recently been working in The Maldives, Dubai, and touring the US and Europe, his first single “One and Only Girl” came out on all music platforms last Summer, and the new album, “Songs From the Mirror” was released at the end of 2017
