Line Up

With arresting vocals, tender lyricism, and crafted songwriting, Gaja’s music paints immersive emotional landscapes. A distinct sound, influenced by years of classical training and artists such as Tim Buckley and Lana Del Rey, places her music somewhere between folk-pop and alt-rock. Based in London, Gaja released her debut single ‘Summer King’ in late December 2023 and is currently preparing for the release of her first album.

Peter Wise is a singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist. His sound marries introspective lyricism with bluesy guitar lines, laid back rhythms, anthemic hooks, and soulful vocals. It is both familiar and distinct, combining his love for the early seventies, southern California folk /rock storytelling, nineties Neo-soul and R&B grooves and modern pop / rock melodies to create a style uniquely his own. His music has been featured in such notable press outlets as Rolling Stone, Wonderland Magazine, Earmilk and American Songwriter Magazine, while garnering hundreds of thousands of streams on digital streaming platforms.

Wise grew up playing classical guitar and piano, before finding a love for classic rock music in middle school. In high school, Wise focused specifically on jazz music and the guitar. However, his love of singing and songwriting always persisted. Upon moving to New York City as a college student, he decided to pursue a career as a singer/songwriter. Mentored by award winning songwriter Phil Galdston (Save The Best For Last) and the late Glenn Frey of The Eagles, Wise began making a name for himself in New York City as a live performer, songwriter, producer, and recording artist.

Wise spent the early part of 2023 recording and self-producing a thirteen song album which he will begin releasing this summer with the lead single, Only Gotta Start. After a European tour in spring 2023,Wise has been hitting the road this summer and fall, with shows in New England, The UK, and California. Stay tuned!

"Urban singer-songwriter...very melodic and old school despite the street demeanour... artfully done with lots of nice jazz chords." (Bugbear Promotions). London-based Singer-Songwriter, rapper, multi-instrumentalist. Major inspirations are Bill Withers and Loyle Carner.

Marlee is a self-professed real-life cartoon character. An independent artist from the Isle of Wight, currently based in South London; she is an alt-pop singer-songwriter and guitarist who writes and produces all her own music, painted in her bold signature drag makeup. Combining witty lyrics with infectious pop hooks - think St. Vincent meets Joni Mitchell.

She’s been performing at festivals (including the Isle of Wight Festival and Camp Bestival) and has recently been releasing new material which has been featured multiple times on radio (such as by Dermot O'Leary on his BBC Radio 2 show, and Shaun Keaveny on his Community Garden Radio show). With more material and live performances to come, Marlee is certainly an artist to watch.

I'm Emily Fields and I'm always in my feeeeels 💘 I write stories about love and life and turn them into pop/soul vibes that others can hopefully resonate with.

My debut single, 17, went to number 21 on the iTunes pop chart in November 2022. Since then, I've been lucky enough to be featured on Love Island All Stars, have radio backing from BBC Introducing, Riverside and Future Hits and play at gorgeous venues like The Bedford, Yurt Cafe and now the Half Moon.
