Far From Refuge

Far From Refuge is a metal band from Cambridge, UK, formed in 2016. Their music combines elements from progressive metal, metalcore, and melodic death to create a powerful and captivating sound.

Along with a string of energetic and highly lauded live performances, in 2018 they released 3 self-produced singles - “Emergence”, “There Was A Light”, and “Circuits”, featuring a music video.

Far From Refuge released their debut 5 track EP on February 1st of 2019.


KOYO are Huw Edwards (lead vocals, guitar), Jacob Price (sampling, synthesisers), Seb Knee-Wright (guitars), Dan Comlay (bass) and Tom Higham (drums). Formed in Leeds in 2015, KOYO have fast become a major factor in the city’s burgeoning music scene. Tagged with the prog-psych rock label, for a young band, they are in fact proficient, reflective and utterly self-effacing. True, some of their songs are longer and they are well schooled in music – literally. But KOYO wear their versatility and charm very lightly indeed.

Doris Brendel

Doris Brendel is one of the most accomplished and exciting live singers on the scene. Apart from first-class musicianship, she puts on incredibly visual shows, with outlandish steam-punk costumes and even laser gloves!


The warm sands of Morocco meet the Seattle drizzle and deliver their original Progressive Alternative Rock mixture in sound waves. The project was started in Rabat in 2017 by Alexandre Tartiere (rhythm guitar & vocals), soon joined by Neyl Nejjai on lead guitar. After recording their first EP “Innonsense & Other Songs” the duo moved to London where they met Mark Ellis (drums) and Daniele Ortenzi (bass). And they lived happier ever after.

Across The Sea

Across The Sea sound unlike any act you’ve heard before. Built around the hauntingly powerful voice of Hannah Katy Lewis, and the unorthodox, adventurous guitar approach of Pete Ferguson, their unique, genre-bending sound is wildly eclectic, fiercely inventive, and singularly distinctive. The duo have gained a reputation as a captivating and affecting live act, performing aboard HMS Warrior, and as a showcase act at Camden’s Dublin Castle. In August 2018, the pair supported Nizlopi’s Luke Concannon at the Arundel date of his UK tour.

That Joe Payne

Singer-songwriter That Joe Payne is a classically trained vocalist, known for his impressive 5 octave range. Now a solo artist, other projects have included The Enid (2011-2016), Methexis (2015), and more recently John Holden and Zio (both 2018-present).

With various collectives he has received 3 Progressive Music Award nominations, including Best Band, Best Album, and Best Event. His personal achievements include being voted Best Male Vocalist for two years running (2014 & 2015) in the Prog Magazine Readers’ Poll.

Kim Seviour

Kongg started life in the bedroom of composer Henry Mitton. Taking inspiration from Radiohead and Grizzly Bear and everything in between, he began writing songs at his piano. After releasing a home-recorded debut EP, the band have been playing on the London circuit for 6 months. Piano takes centre stage as they fuse a mixture of rich harmonies, unrelenting grooves and wailing vocal melodies in pursuit of a complex but accessible art-rock aesthetic.
