AVA LILY has had a wild ride.
Whisked from writing songs at home in her Bristol bedroom, after being spotted on YouTube and picked up by R&B impresario NAUGHTY BOY. A signing to Virgin EMI and her debut single ‘Painkiller’ soon followed. The track garnered effusive reviews, praising her intoxicating, soulful vocals and intimate lyrical style.
A year of relentless touring followed, and a televised appearance at Wembley Arena as part of 2017’s X Factor. Her talents have led to to collaborate with the likes of PROFESSOR GREEN (on ‘Pardon me’) and songwriting credits with big names like ZAYN MALIK (on ‘Common’) — evidence that her skills as a wordsmith are just as finely honed as her live performance is.
Now setting out in a new direction, 2019 sees Ava playing live more than ever before, as she prepares to release her debut EP.”

10pm Antonio Lulic
Touring relentlessly for years has broadened horizons for Antonio Lulic. From opening for Ed Sheeran on tour in the UK, USA, and stadiums all over Latin America, to playing prestigious events the likes of Latitude Festival and South by Southwest, his career as a singer-songwriter has sent him as far across the world as it has up in the world.

This inspiring posse launched Lulic into years of intense touring, at home and abroad, as well as release after release: Becomes Unstoppable (2009), Never or Tonight (2010), Rough (2011), Son (2015) and Departures (2017); each attracting greater acclaim than the last. Now, with two successful solo tours of Latin America in 2018 behind him, Lulic turns his focus back to the UK. He has a debut album to record…
