Richard Morris is an independent singer-songwriter from Portsmouth(UK). He has recently released his greatly anticipated 2nd EP “Stay Alive”, hitting No.3 in the iTunes singer/songwriter charts. Championed by the likes of BBC Introducing he was crowned “BBC Introducing Artist of the Week” on Georgey Tonight, the national BBC evening show with an estimated 1.3 million listeners. ‘Stay Alive’ received airplay on all 40 BBC local radio stations and Richard was awarded “Artist of the Week” by national booker Hotvox
Hailing from a background in psychology and music therapy, Minnesota born and UK based singer-songwriter/producer Jennifer Ann cuts right to the heart of what makes us human in her lyrical work. Her music intertwines her classical training with contemporary pop, setting her haunting vocals amid a backdrop of lush, atmospheric, orchestral/piano soundscapes.
Jennifer Ann is perhaps best known for her accomplishments in the world of advertising music. Her cover of Mad World was used in a Lloyds Bank advertisement, pushing her overnight into the UK’s consciousness. Mad World sold over 21,500 copies, was streamed over 1 million times, and racked in 67,000 Shazams. Mad World has since been placed in video game trailers and in TV shows in both the UK and Italy.
The success of Mad World led Jennifer to contribute her skills to the next Lloyds Bank campaign, arranging and producing a cover of Fatboy Slim’s “Praise You”, with the vocal talents of singer-songwriter Hannah Grace and the London Contemporary Voices. She has also created music for several other campaigns, including advertisements for Boots, Pampers, and UNICEF.
Jennifer is now set to release her first singer-songwriter EP, the lush and thought-provoking “Take Me Home”, which she says is “a snapshot of my life over the last few years. It’s about missing home, which I left to live in the UK, falling in love, feeling lost in life, wanting to hide from the realities of life, and the gradual realization that we are all share similar experiences as human beings. We could just as easily be that ‘Girl on the Train’, completely overwhelmed with life but putting on a brave face to hide it from the world.”
“Take Me Home” includes a re-worked cover of Justin Bieber’s track ‘Let Me Love You’, which was arranged, recorded, and produced by Jennifer. “Of all the tracks on the EP, I am most proud of the cover because I did it all myself. We are sorely lacking female producers and composers in this industry and it’s a shame because we have a lot to bring to the table. It’s time for this to change”.
Ben Roberts started writing music as a teenager, taking influence from his love of classic soul, rock and R&B. As a result, Ben’s songs have a timeless feel to them which is enhanced further by his unique vocal tone. Having featured on The Mahogany Sessions and having recorded two live sessions for BBC Introducing, Ben supported Newton Faulkner on his UK tour in 2016 and since supported Gabrielle Aplin. Ben’s recent Facebook video ‘Shelter’ has been viewed by over 450K people.
