The album has received international radio play across Europe, USA, and Russia while also amassing over 6000 streams in it’s the first week. Their music provides a powerful, energetic, sometimes deep backdrop to frontman and Abbey Road recording artist Chris Sagan’s emotionally crafted lyrics that are poignant as much as they are genuine.

Through years of recording, writing and touring experience, each member of the band has found their unique sound and blended them together to create something truly distinctive in the modern age of music.

NIALL MCNAMEE


Niall McNamee is an Irish singer-songwriter and actor known for his own passionate, thoughtful, and full-blooded songs.
He has starred opposite Pierce Brosnan, fought with Jackie Chan, played comic foil to Bono, and romantically duetted with Imelda May. Next up is a starring role in the feature film Love Without Walls, performing his own compositions, as Niall’s art and life come together.

A self-taught musician, Niall has been immersed in music his whole life. Throughout his years as a struggling young actor, Niall supported himself by performing Irish folk songs, resulting in his knowledge of traditional music growing rich and deep. But all the while, he was writing his own material, drawing on that heritage but pushing into contemporary rock and pop territory.
His latest EP Step By Step, showcases the musicians deep love for storytelling lyrics. Touching on life experiences and human emotions, the five-track release narrates heartbreak, nights out, ecstatic joy, and reflection.

“China In A Box” is about a loving, honest, yet fragile relationship and how these connections with a loved one should be cherished. Tugging at your heartstrings, the song is emotional and sincere, with raw pianos emitting warmth and comfort.
Title-track “Step By Step” speaks of a magical night with a love interest. Niall replays this dreamy encounter through enchanting melodies, a soaring string section, and gentle guitar arrangements which tell a thousand tales. The simple instrumentation allows for his soulful yet gravelly vocals to burn brightly, pulling you in with each and every note and holding you captive.
Then there’s “Fishpond” which takes a more pop route, bringing to mind the likes of Coldplay. The nostalgic tune looks back at fond memories with friends and the end of a cherished chapter of his life.

Having written and performed with leading Irish singer-songwriter Imelda May, their latest duet “Don’t Let Me Stand On My Own” off of 11 Past The Hour made the #1 album on the Irish charts. Niall has built a devoted fanbase and performed sold-out concerts at notable venues including POWEHAUS (Dingwalls’ , The Dublin Castle (London), Spirit Store (Dundalk) Grand Social, Workmans (Dublin) Sunflower (Belfast), and with a major film and the release of ‘All I Need’, 2022 is shaping up to be a very big year.

TONI SANCHO


Releasing her debut single ‘Survive!’ In 2021 Toni Sancho channels her experiences into music in real time, documenting the opening phases of a young woman finding her spot in the world and scribbling it all down into song. Speaking about the track, Toni says: “‘Survive!’ is about recognising when a situation isn’t good for you and having the wisdom to walk away. I started to understand that I had to let that love die so that I could keep going & that there is joy and hope in choosing yourself even when it feels so painful at first.”

Brought up in North Greenwich in a loving Caribbean family, Toni returned to Trinidad just before her teens, witnessing the island’s explosion of colour first hand. In a way, this experience shaped her own personality – chilled out, bright, and vibrant. She’s intensely proud of her roots, and Trinidad’s carnival culture. Absorbing this culture shock, Toni returned to London with her mother as she turned 20, working odd jobs across London and beyond, pouring her perspective of her ever-changing world into her songs. Made in Trinidad, given life in London, and now delivered to the world; Toni’s music has been on a colourful journey and yet that journey has really only just begun.
