Expertly combining folk, soul and and pop, singer-songwriter Fiona Bevan is noted for co-writing ‘Little Things’ with Ed Sheeran, reaching no 1 in 13 countries, for which she received a BMI award. Her debut solo studio album Talk to Strangers (April 2014) was released on Navigator Records, and she has toured as support to Nick Mulvey, Ryan Keen, Ed Sheeran, Hawksley Workman, Ingrid Michaelson, Gwyneth Herbert, Luke Friend and Bill Bailey. She also runs a residency night at Servant Jazz Quarters, Dalston, called “Fiona Bevan Presents” which has featured acts including Mercury Prize-nominated Sam Lee and Ed Harcourt.

The inimitable Piney Gir has been described as a ‘musical chameleon’, and ‘the Indie Dolly Parton’. Hailing from Kansas in America, she has been a key player in trhe UK music scene since moving to London in 1998. Her long list of career credits includes six critically received solo albums, collaborations with Andy Ramsey (Stereolab), Rob Campanella (The Brian Jonestown Massacre), Eamon Hamilton (Brakes/ British Sea Power) and Simple Kid, and BBC radio sessions for Mark Radcliffe, Marc Riley, and Cerys Matthews. Her songs have appeared on Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, Hit & Miss, Made in Chelsea, Misfits, Drifters, Waterloo Road, Being Human, Fried, Talking to the Dead, What Remains, Switch, and in feature films Nina Forever, You’re Not You (Hilary Swank), C’e Chi Dice No, and American Girl.

 

 

Scottish singer-songwriter and Rough Trade Records recording artist Samantha Whates is a hugely respected figure on the London roots scene. Her beautifully crafted, poetic songs retain a strong affinity with her Scottish roots, cultivating a sound that is thoroughly contemporary, rooted in tradition, yet uniquely her own. She recently formed new Rough Trade Records signings Picapica with her long time friend and collaborator Josienne Clarke. Her debut album Dark Nights Make For Brighter Days has been enjoyed both critical acclaim and extensive radio play (BBC 6 Music, KCRW, Resonance FM).
