Simon Stanley Ward is a young country singer, pure and simple. He sounds like the original lonesome cowboy crooner – a perfect cross between Neil Young and Charlie Rich, with a voice to match. It’s hard-rocking country, the kind that spawned Elvis and Johnny Cash, and with superbly tight band that includes Danny & The Champions of the World guitarist Paul Lush in it’s ranks, he delivers on his promise as one of UK alt-country’s fastest rising stars

Dana Immanuel is a North London banjo-toting, whiskey-drinking, poker-playing no-prisoners-taking singer-songwriter. She and her super-heavy folk-blues all girl Stolen Band make a sound straight out of the American bayou, triple filtered through bourbon, washboard, and a touch of alt-country attitude.

The Michael John McGlone Band are an indie folk five piece. Their brilliantly crafted, superbly catchy songs are supported by great muscianship, fine harmonies and a keen storyteller’s ear for lyrics. It’s a superbly soulful roots sound, steeped in Americana but resolutrely English in the vocal delivery- they’re a great band, don’t miss them.
