2020 Roster


2020 sees us handle another roster packed full with established and up and coming music talent as well as some fabulous live events.


Festivals / Live events


Once again we handle the prestigious Burton Agnes Jazz and Blues Festival and World Music festival Musicport. We also handle shows on the JBGB Events calendar at iconic London venues featuring some of the most famous names in the Jazz world.

Folk / American / Jazz / Blues


Our Folk, Americana, Jazz and Blues output remains as strong as ever as we look after Radio 2 DJ Clare Teal and breakthrough act Elles Bailey. Arcelia will once again clock up the miles around the UK with their critically acclaimed live show. 2018 saw us secure numerous BBC radio appearances including daytime Radio 2 for Benjamin W Pike and expect new material from him this year.  A busy 2020 is on the horizon in the studio and on stage for the sublime voice belonging to Irishman Graham J and the same applies for acclaimed swing band Down For The Count.


Following on from a successful 2019, nu Bluesman Ben Hemming continues his upward rise and look at for prodigious songwriter Mick Wynne on a playlist near you. North East independent songwriter Ed James builds on his 2019 success at BBC regional radio and good time hillbilly’s Fargo Railroad Co promise to keep serving up their blend of foot stomping tunes. 2020 is also looking positive for TJ Walker and Will Purdue who had breakthrough singles in 2019. Kora player Kadialy Kouyate’s star promises to keep rising in 2020 following huge critical acclaim for his album last year and the same goes for The Screaming Orphans who head for the UK in 2020.



Songwriters play a big part in our PR plans again with an Elvis Costello tour support from Ian Prowse. 2019 was a huge year for country pop star Katy Hurt and we tip Katy to be one of the one to watch acts in 2020. Dan Donnelly continues to hit the road in this year and the new years sees the addition on Angela Lewis, Chris Simmons, Laura Victoria, DiElle, Scott & Maria, Phil Saatchi and Saskia Griffiths to the roster. Indian pop songstress Rivita hopes to build on her BBC London Record of the Month success this year.

Indie / Rock


Not forgetting our indie and rock beginnings, we once more handle some sublime rock and indie acts including Lethbridge Owen, The Jet Reds, The Tuesday Club and Daniel Steer as well as polished classic rock tunes from David Sinclair Four, The Senton Bombs and Richard Strange.



Manchester hip hop act The Moods head in the 2020 full of optimism and we eagerly await the new release from Radio 1 supported Deviant Robots and get ready to get your funk on with Winachi Tribe. Electronic producer Paul K also continues to deliver his spellbinding releases.



Labels we work with include A1M Records, Animal Farm, Beautiful World Agency, Big Bed Records, F Block, Northern Quarter, Celtic Collections, Red Grape Management, Maniac Squat Records, Kitchen Disco Records, Good Deeds Music and many more.


We also have a booking agency side securing live dates around the UK as well as showcase nights in the capital. Our live roster features acoustic acts Frankie Swain, Ooberfuse and Helene Greenwood.
