Emma and the Fragments are a dynamic indie rock band hailing from the vibrant music scene of East London. Fronted by charismatic Emma alongside her husband Jon on drums, their deep connection and shared musical vision have been the driving force behind the band’s success.
Donn, the lead guitarist, brings incredible musicianship and unique guitar playing style and rounding out the line up is the equally talented Jonny on bass.

Together, they create a sound that’s both powerful and nuanced, blending elements of indie rock, punk, and pop to create something truly special – this was recognised in 2021 when the band won the WigWam Radio Best Indie Rock Act Award against fierce competition.

Emma and the Fragments are signed to Regent Street Records, a London-based label with a reputation for discovering and promoting talented up-and-coming artists.

With a new EP ‘Beneath The Polite Surface’ set to release in 2023 themes of love, loss, and self-discovery are woven throughout, ensuring their music speaks to the human experience in a way that’s both relatable and inspiring and sure to delight fans both new and old.

The band play regular gigs across London and the South East and will be playing the main stage of MotoFest in Coventry on 1st June 2023.

10:00 PM HOLiDAY

Emerging with a sound that spans decades and genres, HOLiDAY aligns to a resonance of anthemic artists of recent times. Romantically referenced as “the lovechild of Florence + The Machine and Foals”, they unapologetically merge gritty alternative rock with heartfelt indie pop. The charming combination of female and male vocals lands the band in the realm of other joint lead vocal groups alike, receiving recent praise as “a modern-day Fleetwood Mac with hints of The XX” (Adrian Breakspear).

Based in the creative vortex of Byron Bay, Australia, they are currently in the studio defining their debut EP, with a first glance coming via singles ‘Next Best Friend’ and ‘Lover’, showcasing HOLiDAY’s co-produced talents. Working alongside GRAMMY nominated and ARIA award winning producer Adrian Breakspear (Pharrell, Coldplay, Gang Of Youths, Amy Shark), a July ‘23 date has been set for the highly anticipated coming single ‘Work Of Art’.

Off the back of their first national ‘Lover’ Tour and multiple Australian festival lineups including; The Basin Concert, Party In The Apocalypse, Great Escape Music Festival, FOTSUN and Party In The Paddock, the band prepare for ‘Escape The Dark’ (Dark Mofo) and Byron Music Festival this coming month before embarking on their first stint of live shows in the UK/Europe – August ’23.

HOLiDAY are for fans of: London Grammar, Foals, Sam Fender, Florence + The Machine, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and other alternative rock gems that came before them.
