FAWNe is a singer songwriter that plays guitar and piano. She has been working with Hugh Fothergill as a producer and creative collaborator for the last two years crafting her songs. Their next creative outing is ‘Being Sold’ which will be released in August. FAWNe has been dedicated to streaming regularly throughout the pandemic to keep in touch with her fan base. Before lockdown she was performing three times a week with different musicians across the South East as a collective and they are currently swinging back into action as a live offering. With Busk in London, FAWNe has been performing across the capital city at various locations from Wembley Arena, Camden Market, Greenwich Peninsula to Euston Station. Currently FAWNe can be seen at the EURO 2021 football village. This is FAWNe’s second trip to grace the stage at the much loved Bedford in Balham.
Drawing on a myriad of influences from soul, pop, indie and electronica, with nods to Mazzy Star, Phoebe Bridgers, Billie Eillish and Radiohead, FAWNe describes her music as “Alternative Pop but it can vary. When in the studio, I like to al-low myself the freedom to just write whatever I’m genuinely feeling at the time with out having rules or plan. All of my music is personal, drawing on real life experiences and is written from the heart. It is moody/dark with an element of sweetness, a hint of humour and above all it is real.”
The first release from FAWNe ‘Colours’ was recommend by Metal and Fame Magazines amongst other tastemaker recognition with support from Amazing, Soho, Islington and Shoreditch Radio and BBC Kent.

9:30pm TOMMY DOWN
Tommy Down’s a multi-instrumentalist who has been writing music and recording since he was fourteen. He went on to tour and performed jazz standards across Europe from the age of 20 in a Bristol based Jazz Orchestra. During his time at Bristol he netted a few accolades, including ’Best Original Composition’ at the UK Open Mic Competition. After leaving Bristol Tommy moved back to London, where he began and finished a soul album with jazz and blues rock influences, which he has been performing across the city with his band Pink Yesterday. While flying from London to New York he also forged some eminent collaborations last year in order to complete this body of work. Collaborators include Jeffrey Silverman (Adele + Aloe Blacc), Charlie Perry (wrote and produced for Jorja Smith on Lost and Found), and Jon Shave & Jason Pebworth from the grammy nominated “Invisible Men” – the hitmakers behind songs by Britney Spears and Rita Ora.
Tommy takes inspiration from soul singers like Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, Al Green, Stevie Wonder, Bill Withers and more contemporary artists like Daniel Caesar.
