One of the finest artists to grace the New Roots sessions, Ned Roberts is a wonderfully accomplished folk musician with a timeless quality to his sound. His perfectly balanced Laurel Canyon-esque songs delivered with a poetic turn of phrase, excellent musicianship and a perfectly judged vocal sensibility sit comfortably amongst the classics of the acoustic folk world. He recently released his debut album to rave reviews, recorded in L.A. and produced by Luther Russell (Noah and the Whale/ Richmond Fontaine), and completed a support tour with folk legend Anais Mitchell.

‘Absolutely gorgeous stuff…one to really get excited about’  Lauren Laverne, BBC 6Music

“…a warm treat. Roberts is a fine guitar picker, his melodies reminiscent of Leonard Cohen with lyrical nods to Bob Dylan, and his voice has echoes of Tim Hardin.” Observer 4 stars.

‘An understated gem’ – The Independent on Sunday

Fresh from playing at this year’s Glastonbury Festival, London four piece Sisika are led by the Duncan sisters. Their rich voices weave close, lyrical, earthy harmonies, supported by warm, melodic guitar and piano lines, with the band’s sparse arrangements fusing together to make for a beautifully soulful roots sound.
