NIELSEN REAVELEY


Nielsen Reaveley is a 20 year old singer songwriter from Brighton. By the age of 14 he was already an accomplished musician, but changes in his personal life saw a big shift in his life plans. Barely a teenager, Reaveley started writing as a form of therapy, turning his own experiences into songs as a distraction from challenges in his home life. From this Reaveley came to the realisation he had a knack for writing about a broad array of topics. His roots in classical music helped him define a sound that is somewhere between John Mayer, Saint Raymond and Ed Sheeran. This is a stark contrast to some of his influences, such as 60s Soul and 80s RnB, which put together morph a truly unique artist. In early 2018 he chose to move to London full time, regularly staying in Turnham Green which gave him the chance to play live up to three times a day. In this period he wrote his second EP, from which the second single ‘Five Senses’ was played on Tom Robinson’s BBC Radio 6 show. Robinson called Reaveley ‘A hotly tipped young Londoner with a knack for ear worm pop melodies and literate, memorable lyrics’. During 2018 Reaveley gained growing support from BBC Introducing accumulating airplay on three of his tracks. The songwriter has been playing live over The South of England for the past five years and his most noticeable performance to date was at Latitude festival. In late Summer 2018, Reaveley recorded a live version of the title track off his second EP ‘Cheer Up’. The video caught the attention of award nominated producer Matthew Parisi, who was Mike Stock’s principle sound engineer for over four years. Parisi has worked with the likes of Chris Martin and Kylie Minogue. He is also credited on records alongside Grammy award winning mixing and mastering engineers. In recent years Parisi has made records that have charted across the globe. Together they are now working in the studio to produce a series of singles, which are set to bring a breath of fresh air to the industry.

SHANNON HYNES


Shannon Hynes is very much inspired by the poignant honesty of the storytelling in country music. Due to the fact she has studied this music for the majority of her life, she has honed her craft in captivating you in her lyrical stories.
Taking inspiration from past and present leaders in country music, Shannon plans to demonstrate the deep lonesome of the songs she writes with the balance of the innocence and pure tone her vocal executes.
With her first two singles ‘I’m Not Pretty’ (also Baylen Leonard’s Record of the Week on Chris Country ) and ’Someone to Drink With’ debuting at Number One on the iTunes Country Charts, 2018 was a great start to Shannon’s career and she only hopes 2019 will follow in the same manner.

FORTNIGHT IN FLORIDA


‘Fortnight In Florida’ are a London four-piece who consider Toro Y Moi, Holy Ghost! and Hot Chip as some of their biggest influences. Born from a shared love of disco, synth pop, and an encyclopaedic knowledge of Alan Partridge quotes, Fortnight In Florida symbolises the will to escape the daily grind, expressed by their inimitable brand of blissed-out Electronic Pop’. After finishing a tour as keys player for Lianne La Havas, the band’s singer/songwriter Simon Middleton met Eamonn Dawe (bass/guitars) on a previous musical venture and ‘Fortnight In Florida’ was formed. Shortly after, they were joined on drums by Andrew Gallop, with Lyle Moxsom on guitars. With three singles and a debut EP So Long released in 2016, Fortnight In Florida made the ‘Glastonbury 2016 Emerging Talent’ longlist and the ‘Unsigned Guide’s Emerging Acts of 2017’ list having already been featured in their Spotlight blog.Their tracks ‘Cameo’ and ‘It’s Alright’ both made the ‘Fresh On The Net’ Fresh Faves, and received Radio play on BBC 6Music and Amazing Radio. In 2017 they launched a crowdfunding campaign to help them raise funds to record their debut album In-flight Entertainment at Rockfield in South Wales, UK. With the final touches being made to the album they look set to release it in Spring 2019.
