Leon O’Leary is an indie-folk singer-songwriter from Bury St. Edmunds Suffolk, England. He grew up surrounded by pine forests and the wildness of the Suffolk coast at his doorstep. The environments that often help to create and nurture the very best of British and Irish singers and songwriters, grounded by melodic truth and the beauty that surrounds them. He writes and plays with the depth and passion of a much older soul, his Celtic origins can clearly be heard in his music, giving an insight on his attempts to make sense of the world, and a young man’s discovery of love and loss. The influences of Damien Rice, Ben Howard, James Bay and Bruce Springsteen resonating in his performances. Leon has performed at notable venues such as The Norwich Arts Centre, The Portland Arms, The Waterfront Studio, The Smoke House, Latitude Festival, Bard Fest, Ipswich Sound City 19′ among others and has featured on BBC Introducing Suffolk.
Deep City are an Alternative Pop band from Cambridgeshire formed in 2014. From winning a NMG Award two years in a row for Best 18 & Under Group in 2016 and 2017, a One’s to Watch in the 2016 Cambridge Band Competition and critical acclaim in East Anglia they have also had tracks played on BBC Radio 6, championed by BBC Introducing.
The Revere are a four piece indie/alternative rock band from Norwich, Norfolk. Consisting of four best friends (two of which are brothers), they have Matt ‘Mole’ Williamson on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Billy Dunthorne on lead guitar, Alfie Britcher on bass guitar and Cameron Britcher on the drums. Inspired by the release of several albums in 2016 such as Blossoms, DMAs and The Last Shadow Puppets, they decided to get out of the pub and get in the rehearsal studio to work on a batch of songs songwriter Matt had been stockpiling.
After releasing their debut single ‘The Mischief’ which was inspired by a popular nearby pub, they’ve gone on to play shows around Norwich and London and will finish the year with the release of their second single, ‘A False Sense of Reality’, which will coincide with their debut headline show at The Waterfront Studios.
