BEN HUTCHESON www.facebook.com/benhutchesonsinger

An emerging Folk Rock artist from South West England.

Ben Hutcheson bridges the storytelling gap between Passenger, Ed Sheeran and Tim McGraw making him an act to look for in the near future.

“Ben Hutcheson, a young singer/songwriter with a wisdom beyond his years. His lyrics tackle universal themes such as love and loss, yet also weave captivating stories, with a contemporary feel. With a warm, rich voice he expresses emotion and authenticity and makes a genuine connection with his audience.” - Julianne Regan (All About Eve)

"Ben Hutcheson’s dark husky growl sings of a world of intimacy and observation. Love, lust and tenderness, haunted dancehalls and broken promises - Ben’s world is weary though alive due to delicacy and romance. From Portishead to Nashville this is music for lovers, vagrants and thieves." - Davey Ray Moore (CousteauX)

THOMAS EDWARD YATES

Unassuming, unusual and enigmatic, T.E. Yates is a multi-disciplinary artist of rare and disarming qualities that must be seen and heard to be believed.

Most musicians boast of exploding onto their local scene in a glittering blaze of media hype and spontaneous applause. T.E. Yates, however, snuck in through an open window.

His name was not on the top line of event posters but rather a discreet artist signature in the bottom corner; his first gig flyers and album covers were ones he designed for other bands not himself. He’s performed in front of huge crowds but always as a hired hand or supporting player, a multi-instrumentalist in the shadows – mandolin, banjo, harmonica, even musical saw – you may have heard him on the tracks of other artists without even knowing it.

But now T.E. Yates has stepped out of the shadows, taking centre-stage with a formidable backing band (both onstage and on record) comprising members of Victorian Dad, The Bedlam Six, Ottersgear, Gorilla Riot and Honeyfeet. Even when performing solo the man doesn’t travel light, his weird and wonderful drawings regularly making an appearance between songs, baffling and delighting audiences in equal measures.

His debut EP “Possessed” was released on Debt Records in 2013. His first full LP, entitled “Silver Coins And White Feathers” and produced by Biff Roxby, was released in 2017.

Yates' first completed animated work, Evil Cat, was shortlisted for Best Music Video at the 2016 British Animation Awards.
