THE GREAT LESLIE, formed during lockdown in 2020, is a group of misfits who fit together creating something unmissable. Consisting of Ollie Trevers on Vocals and Rhythm Guitar, Ryan Lavender on Drums, Alfie Pawsey on Bass, and Freddie Miles on Lead Guitar, this gifted group has taken the UK scene by storm, played sold-out headline shows and supported heavy weights Franz Ferdinand, at Manchester O2 Warehouse. Their debut EP gained major critical acclaim and they’ve now released their second EP ‘21st Century Problems’.

PRESIDENT STREET are Australian pop-fusion duo Ruby & Pete. Their songwriting dynamic of hook filled pop melodies and infectious beats saw them garner a successful 2019 college radio campaign with “Yeah I Know” in the USA. The duo turned their attention to the UK  earning three Top 10 hits and as featured artists on the prestigious music program BBC The Beat and BBC Introducing. The duo have been dubbed by numerous music curators as “the ones to watch” – they have their sights set for a huge 2023 and beyond!

Australian band, HOLiDAY align 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). They are currently in the studio defining their debut EP. 

SAY YES, DO NOTHING is a London band whose gritty and poetic street reports are a raw mix of the punk and Americana. Imagine a punk fronting honkytonk with a lairy Jimmy Paige In tow – that’s Say Yes Do Nothing! If you love The Old 78’s, Stones, Clash, Waylon Jennings , Arctic Monkeys, then you’ll love Say Ye Do Nothing! SYDN comprises singer Dave Eastman, guitarist Dan Hooper, bassist Jake Brown and drummer Matty Poole.

DIMITRIS NEZIS is an artist from Greece who has won 30+ international music awards & 50 nominations in less than 3 years of releasing music internationally. He is a National Recording Academy voting member and a 3 times Grammy-balloted artist. His latest singles All That Matters, Poison & Viral have hit the charts in more than 12 countries ww, expandind his audience especially in Latin America and USA.

Edidion is a UK R&B artist whose musical influences include Michael Jackson, Aaliyah, Prince, and Usher. Critics and listeners say Edidion is the ‘next big thing’ and ‘one to watch. Edidion released his debut EP “Statistic” in 2015 to rave reviews. Edidion’s latest single “Getaway” released April 2023 charted on the Amazon Music charts under “Best Sellers R&B”, “Hot New Releases R&B” and “Hot New Releases Overall”. 

Stacey Z is a singer/songwriter from Glasgow, Scotland. During the pandemic, Stacey Z produced then released her debut album, ‘What If?’. Stacey writes music with the intention of lifting peoples spirits and making them smile. Her songs are inspired by real life events, which may not always be positive, but she tries to turn these experiences into feel good music in the hope that some people will share the same feelings.
