Channeling the spirit of Van Morrison and Fisherman’s Blues-era Waterboys Dan Raza’s uplifting, powerful songs have led him to share stages with Mary Gauthier, Badly Drawn Boy, Cara Dillon and Chris Farlowe amongst others. He has just released his debut album featuring a stellar array of guest appearances from Geraint Watkins (Van Morrison, Paul McCartney), BJ Cole (Dolly Parton, Martin Simpson) Steve Simpson (Eric Bibb, Ronnie Lane), Frank Mead (Albert King, Eric Clapton) and Mosi Conde (Mory Kante, Salif Keita).

Lucas and King are a truly exciting new young duo emerging from Brighton. Songs of exceptional craft and depth pull influence from classic folk and American roots influences, delivered with the spine-tingling, unforgettable voice of Bo King and perfectly judged guitar accompaniment from Hayleigh Lucas. Highlights of 2015 so far have included an appearance at this year’s Glastonbury on the coveted Acoustic Stage alongside Olivia Chaney, Ron Sexsmith, Grant Lee Phillips and Donovan.

A consumate songwriter and superbly accomplished folk player and singer, Lucy Kitt’s creative soul looks west acoss the Atlantic- LA’s Laurel Canyon bears great influence on her warmly mellow sound. The folky edge that dominates the character of her music takes influence from the work of artists such as Joni Mitchell, Sandy Denny and Neil Young, and her perfectly crafted songwriting style shows a crystal clear vision and rock solid foundations strong enough to take such reference points. A real gem.
