REWS are the sassy, high energy, pop rock duo consisting of songstress Shauna Tohill and beat-maker Collette Williams. Together they are creating a genuine buzz on the UK/Irish music scene following the release of their four recent singles. They were Huw Stephens‘ “Tip Of The Week” on BBC Radio 1 with their new single ‘Miss You In The Dark’, played on BBC Radio 6Music with Tom Robinson, as well as all 38 BBC Introducing shows.

Setting up a YouTube channel (BriBryontour) to let family and friends know how he was getting on in his travels, one late night abroad he uploaded a video of himself playing one of his own songs and everything changed. Hundreds, then thousands, then hundreds of thousands of new subscribers tuned in to hear his music. Forging a very real connection with his followers through personalised videos, question and answer web chats and specially curated online sessions, his confidence grew and his repertoire expanded. Bry landed the sole support of 21 Pilots’ sold out European tour last year. Support comes from vlogger Tessa Violet and singer-songwriter Danny Gruff.

Little Comets + Eliza And The Bear @ O2 Institute2
MORE INFO • BUY TICKETS

Little Comets, the five-piece from the North East of England, are soon to release their fourth album WORHEAD on The Smallest Label, the follow up to 2015’s Hope Is A State of MindWORHEAD is the most brutally honest Little Comets album to date – acerbic, withering and uncomplimentary about the state of our time; yet woven together with great beauty and care, drenched in positive melody and the percussive thrust of an innocent mind. Support comes from the Essex quintet Eliza And The Bear.

THURSDAY 16TH FEBRUARY

Hidden Charms + The Bay Rays + The Lizards @ Hare & Hounds (Venue 2)
MORE INFO • BUY TICKETS

South London based band Hidden Charms return with their intoxicating new single ‘I Just Wanna Be Left Alone’, and new EP Harder From Here released via Deltasonic Records. Mounting a strong case for the title of ‘UK’s most exciting guitar band’, the four-piece carefully hint at the psych-tinged, effervescent indie rock of their previous releases, but ‘I Just Wanna Be Left Alone’ is the sound of a band moving forward. Support comes from Kent three-piece The Bay Rays and psychedelic pop band The Lizards.

Setting up a YouTube channel (BriBryontour) to let family and friends know how he was getting on his travels, one late night abroad he uploaded a video of himself playing one of his own songs and everything changed.

Hundreds, then thousands, then hundreds of thousands new subscribers tuned in to hear his music. Forging a very real connection with his followers through personalised videos, Question and Answer web chats and specially curated online sessions, his confidence grew and his repertoire expanded.
