8:00pm GRACE BARR


From Irish descent and raised in Camden, North West London, 16-year-old Grace Barr has been quickly gaining a reputation as the UK’s newest and most exciting talent. Grace has been writing since the tender age of 11 and her songwriting and singing skills exude a confidence and wisdom way beyond her years, which has caught the attention of some of the UK music industry’s leading songwriters and producers, including Fiona Bevan (Ed Sheeran/ One Direction), Oli Som (James Blunt, Robbie Williams), Sophie Ackroyd and Ed Graves.

Despite being only 15 at the time, Grace was invited by Scottish No1 artist The Snuts to open for them on their 2021 UK winter tour. Playing her debut live shows solo with just a piano, Grace wowed audiences across the country and gained a loyal legion of new fans with her powerful vocals and spellbinding songwriting.

2022 is already shaping up to be an exciting year with industry attention mounting and Grace back in the studio working with Fiona Bevan for her debut release. Grace has also been invited to play a residency at London’s legendary Bedford which has supported the early talents of Ed Sheeran, Adele, and Paolo Nutini in April & May 2022.

Inspired by playing open mics and festivals in her hometown Melbourne, Lydia May quickly built a fanbase with her softening melodies and explorative lyrics. Releasing her demo album at twelve years old that includes 10 original tracks it is clear that her talents lie beyond her years. Since moving with her family to the busy music scene of London in 2018 she earned herself a place at the esteemed BRIT School following in the footsteps of her main inspiration Adele. Lydia May released her second demo as an EP ‘Priorities’ and has most recently dropped her new 2021 studio album ‘Orbit’. Now performing with her band around London, Lydia May is creating a live soundscape of dreamy rock-pop aligning with her space-like lyrics and transporting her audiences to new musical planets.

9:30pm SAMFIRE


London singer, songwriter, and producer Samfire has a fresh experimental sound which is accompanied by her ethereal voice and thoughtful lyrics. She oozes authenticity making her music easily relatable. Her mother working in the classical music industry fueled Samfire’s passion for music early on. After being encouraged by a teacher to take lessons to strengthen her talent, she attended the school choir as a soprano. This filled her with a love for harmonies and a rich epic sound which has translated beautifully in the music that she makes now. Taking her obvious calling for music seriously, Samfire started an indie-pop band with a university friend (who were picked up by BBC Introducing as upcoming artists) called With What Eyes.

Now taking on the journey by herself, she is set to release her EP Time, debuting her one-of-a-kind sound. Influenced by artists such as FKA Twigs (particularly her industrial-sounding beats), Lana Del Rey, and Kate Bush, you can be assured that Samfire’s music is sonically pleasing. Her music introduces you to a sound that will purposefully provoke your thoughts and move you to feel new extremes of emotion. Although Samfire is spirited and imaginative, she is also quite private. Although, through her music she is able to safely tackle her thoughts and actualize them in a healthy way, satisfying the daydreamer inside of her.
