TOM WATTS


Tom is a solo Guitarist who has been playing since he was 8 years old. Starting out as a rock guitarist, he then gravitated towards the acoustic ditching the pick, and favouring creating percussion sounds and plucking the strings with his fingers.  After molding his sound at Leeds Conservatoire, he has created a unique and captivating style of playing tunes, drums, and chords all on one Guitar.

The songs that you hear in Tom’s set were all written during the first lockdown, whilst simultaneously recovering from a bicycle accident and training to be a teacher. He has released live sessions of two tracks “Gruffalos and Diggers” and “How do you drive such a small car?” filmed at Evoke studios. Both of these are on Youtube. Later this year he will be releasing his debut E.P “Beholden.”

MORNING CRUSH


“An amazing talent” Tom Robinson BBC Radio 6
“A way with words that is so vanishingly rare in music… The best piece of modern folk I’ve heard in a while” York Calling
“Engaging melodies and smart lyrics” Americana UK
“Absolutely Lovely” Frank Turner

Morning Crush have had a busy month, with 2 Frank Turner support slots, a Banquet Records instore, and a tour with The Nick Alexander Music Trust and Xtra Mile Recordings. Relatively new to the modern alternative folk scene, Morning Crush began releasing singles in November 2020 and after playing their first full-band gig at the Camden Roundhouse (Nick Alexander stage) at Lost Evenings festival and selling out their first-ever London Headline show at Aces and Eights weeks in advance, they released a surprise new single Stories Of War. A 5 minute long personal, powerful, and pertinent story of war, generational trauma, Ukraine, and peace.

Drawing influences from the obvious greats, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, and Roy Harper, Tim Ostrowsky-Thomas began busking on high streets at 14 and sneaking into open mics under-age. A songwriter with a conscience unafraid to speak his mind, throughout his career-to-date, he has used his music to speak-out about mental health issues and social unrest. Commitment to the cause, in 2015 he busked for 24 hours straight to raise money for Syria relief, and in 2017 for the mental health charity CALM. Although Ostrowsky-Thomas only adopted the moniker Morning Crush in 2020, he had already received BBC Radio 6 airplay and had been featured on Channel 4 news as a solo artist. Developing a small but dedicated fanbase over the years, Ostrowsky-Thomas has also toured with and supported the likes of: Billy Ocean, Will Varley, Billy Bragg, Frank Turner, Art Brut, Tom Grennan, Grace Petrie, and Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly.

FROM THE TIGER'S MOUTH


When one door closes, another door opens. For London-born singer/songwriter, Harry Sullivan, that door was a literal one – stuck in isolation for much of 2020/21. From the Tiger’s Mouth is a solo/collaborative project borne of a time where we remained connected yet still so very far apart. Cathartic, heart-on-its sleeve songwriting with contemporary dreamlike sensibilities for fans of Frightened Rabbit, We Were Promised Jetpacks, and Augustines.
