Kate Ellis (kateellis.com) and her band will be following up a sold out launch for her critically acclaimed debut album "Carve Me Out", streamed over 100,000 times, played on radio across the country and described by AmericanaUK as: "Quite simply a superb debut album and one that announces the arrival of a genuine talent. Ellis has a voice that is easy to love – a new Americana star of real potential. 8/10."
Lisa Wright (lisawrightmusic.com) has been described as a cross between Alison Krauss and Kacey Musgraves, and with two applauded EP releases, brings an “element of modernity to country/folk”. Lisa’s first single entered the iTunes country charts at No.4, making her the only independent UK artist in the Top 20.
BEN SMITH & JIMMY BREWER
Ben and Jimmy (bensmithandjimmybrewer.com) will be back fresh from showcasing at the prestigious AmericanaFest in Nashville, alongside the likes of Lori McKenna and Sam Outlaw. Their memorable melodies, beautiful harmonies, intertwining guitars and traditional storytelling songs are irresistible.
Kaity Rae (kaityrae.com) is a North London singer-songwriter highlighted by FATEA Magazine as “an artist to look out for.” Her songs, with a "subtle blend of traditional Country and Pop”, appear on two of her own EPs and a number of compilations albums.
