Oliver Downes

Singer-songwriter Oliver Downes blends intricate, percussive piano playing with instantly hummable melodies and thought-provoking lyrics.

Packing ‘soaring melodies and sharp wit in equal measure’ (Tone Deaf), his debut album ‘Ultraviolet’ (2016) took a leaf from artists such as Ben Caplan, Kate Bush and Rufus Wainwright, to offer a sweet blend of dreamy ballads and exhilaratingly kinetic tunes.

Joined by Joshua Kreusler (electric guitar) and Jack Towers (drums), expect chamber pop tunes with a unique jazz inflection that chart a musical passage through the darkness into the light.

‘[Downes’] compositions and arrangements create nebulous, ethereal soundscapes, deftly woven by the tensile orchestration… Give your mind permission to wander’ (The Music).


Imogen Pemberton

Singer-songwriter Imogen Pemberton has a strong passion for music and life itself.  Imogen is a vocal chameleon, delving into many musical genres while staying true to her own unique sound.

Always in the search of a rawer, more heartfelt sound within her songwriting, Imogen mesmerises through her original folk songs, capturing the listener with weaving melodies, sophisticated guitar playing and lyrics that reach the listener on a personal level.

Her pure organic tone displays a maturity beyond her years. A musician who you will want see and hear again and again.
