S.T. Manville has written both platinum and gold selling records and worked with artists such as , Biffy Clyro, Digital Farm Animals, Little Mix and Becky Hill. Records he has worked on have been streamed over 50 Million times. However, disenchanted with the pop world, towards the end of 2018 Manville picked up a guitar and started writing for himself.

What came next was a flood of highly personal songs full of regret, awe, sorrow and hope. While writing and recording his own material Manville also started recording covers of songs from his childhood, becoming his first release ‘Somebody Else’s Songs’. Featuring songs by Green Day, Blink 182, The Offspring, Weezer, plus other lesser known bands such as ALL and Owls. Presented in his own emotional folk/country style, Manville has delicately shone a new light on the pop-punk genre. Recording and playing everything himself, his hushed vocals, intimate guitar playing and rustic accompaniments on banjo, violin and accordion bring a sentimental gravitas to songs you may not have thought it possible to.

With appearances at Dot to Dot and Handmade festival already this year and picking up praise from i-d magazine, BBC introducing and numerous blogs he is quickly becoming a must see live act. ‘Somebody Else’s Songs’ is OUT NOW. His own material is scheduled for release later this year.

Shropshire born singer-songwriter Jessie Reid, weaves impressive fingerstyle guitar playing together with soulful, emotive vocal melodies. Having released two demo singles earlier this year, she caught the attention of music journalists and was subsequently shortlisted for the Glastonbury 2019 Emerging Talent competition. Her innovative, folk-influenced songwriting is said to enchant audiences, drawing comparisons with artists such as Ben Howard, Lucy Rose and fingerstyle guitarist Andy Mckee. Over the past year, Jessie has supported acts such as Seafret, Dan Owen, Ciaran Lavery, Bryde and Brooke Bentham whilst also enjoying regular Sofar Sound appearances across Europe and South America. Jessie’s demo singles received support from Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music and on BBC Introducing. She has recently received a grant from the Alan Surtees Trust that will enable her to release her debut EP later this year. Jessie will be playing at a number of UK festivals this summer in preparation for the EP release.
