19 Sep 2022: FRASER MORGAN
Fraser Morgan is a singer/songwriter from Essex who brings to the stage high levels of both energy and showmanship via his solo, duo and band shows. He delivers a performance that is often compared to as if Frank Turner, Jamie T and Nizlopi were all to have some sort of weird love-child together. Fraser is an active gigger having played over 675 gigs to-date. Throughout his performance, Fraser keeps the crowd laughing with his humorous one-liners between songs whilst also speaking important messages of mental health within the songs themselves.
12 Sep 2022: ROISIN O’HAGAN
Roisin is a 24 year old independent Americana/pop singer-songwriter from Essex who has been writing, recording and performing since she was 12 years old. Roisin recently released the first two singles of her upcoming EP; ‘Sunset Valley’, which featured on Tidal’s editorial Country/Pop playlist, and ‘Road From Nevada’, a song that bursts with a lust for life, love and the things that inspire Roisin.
05 Sep 2022: SOPHIE GRIFFITHS
Sophie is a 20 year old singer-songwriter from Brentwood. She is an old soul locked in a digital age. Taking cues from legends such as Duffy, Amy Winehouse and Norah Jones but delivering with a modern twist, Sophie showcases a sharp turn of phrase and gift for ear-worm melodies that can be compared to contemporaries including Emie Nathan and Maisie Peters. In 2022 Sophie has featured on Love Island and seen widespread support on social media.
