8:00pm WORRYWORRY


Boundary defying solo artist WORRYWORRY represents the future of stadium-filling, soulful balladeers, whilst embracing cues from the underground R&B scene. His music is both enticingly familiar yet refreshingly authentic.

Growing up in West London’s Isleworth, WORRYWORRY was raised in a musical household on a diet of the folk greats who inspired his songwriting craft, including Nick Drake, Bob Dylan and John Martyn. Having spent the past few years honing his sound, WORRYWORRY knacks a refreshing soulful signature, blended with understated trap, hip hop and pop production, inspired by underground artists such as Bones and Spooky Black. His vocals are a stand out element in his music; melancholic, emotionally driven and powerful, helping him to express the pain and heartache contained within his songs.

His innate ability and potential to connect with a wide audience was there from the start, anonymously releasing a string of cuts on Soundcloud including trap-infused ‘Fool’. Then came his label deal with Method Records (Slowthai) in 2020. Released in April 2021, WORRYWORRY’s debut single ‘Outside’ is a soulful track with trap undertones which CLASH described as a “Post-Weeknd R&B sound”, and the follow up single ‘Dead Inside’ co-produced with Jay Moon (Col3trane, SG Lewis) takes the dynamic pairing of underground R&B and alt-soul to extraordinary new heights. The current track ‘Miserable’, a piano-driven ballad where Joe’s panoramic vocals take centre stage, was co-written with indie prodigy Matt Maltese and shares the same lyrical depth and vulnerability as previous tracks whilst showcasing Joe’s dazzling pop sensibilities’.

8:30pm HEDARA


After success in the music industry since leaving The BRIT School, Hedara – aka Scarlet Billham – nearly died by falling into a diabetic coma. Little did she know that she had type 1 diabetes until she was omitted to hospital.

This led Hedara to revaluate her music and scrap everything to start again. Over the past couple of years she’s been working with a number of song writers including Ian Barter (Amy Winehouse & Paloma Faith), Carey Willetts (Dua Lipa, Freya Ridings, Dermot Kennedy) and recently found a connection with Mitch Jones (Jessie Ware, Ed Sheeran & Tom MIsch) who has co-written and produced two tracks from her forthcoming EP.

Hedara has picked up a number of fans along the way including Jo Whiley who has been a huge supporter, playing her tracks numerous times on her BBC Radio 2 show. Dermot O’Leary had ‘Skin Deep’ as his new music pick, and Tom Robinson added Hedara to his BBC Introducing Mixtape.
Hedara is becoming one of the go-to top line girls within the dance world and had recent hits with Audox, Covenants and Pablo Bravas, which had led to support from MistaJam at Radio 1 and Majestic at Kiss FM. She will be releasing her new EP in 2022 and supporting Hannah Grace in Sept 2021 with the London show at Omeara.
