London-based duo Huw Foster & Danny Sharples form the creative partnership behind Goodfoot, a funk & soul act on a mission to create intelligent pop, heavy grooves and good vibes. Drawing influence from the likes of Daft Punk, Chic, Erykah Badu and Prince, Goodfoot released their debut EP New Shoes in 2017, with new music due to drop in summer 2018. As a live act, Goodfoot perform as a 9-piece, fronted by Danny on lead vocals, and Huw on electric & synth bass. Horns, rhythm section and backing vocals complete a line-up that is 100% live. From their home studio in West London, Danny & Huw also occasionally find a creative outlet in their ‘Goodloop’ series of videos, which finds them mashing up their favourite covers into dynamic, live-looped rearrangements. Goodfoot’s debut single ‘Anita’ was featured on The Boogie, Vol. 6, an expansive funk, soul & hip-hop compilation released by Frankfurt-based label Tokyo Dawn.

Taking her cues from a variety of influences including hip-hop, neo-soul, and electronic pop (to name a few) LILO has been blurring the lines between genres and creating a style that’s all her own. A human melting pot of sounds both old and new, LILO is already drawing comparisons to the likes of Janelle Monae, Kimbra and Nao.
Having performed regularly both throughout the UK, as well as recently returning home from a four-month writing/recording trip to Los Angeles, California where she worked with celebrated producer Michael ‘Smidi’ Smith (Sia, Coldplay, Kesha), LILO has just released her first single ‘Resuscitate’ ahead of the release of her highly-anticipated debut EP. Due for a winter release that will be supported with one of LILO’s incendiary live shows, this is only a taste of what’s to come.
An established session singer and sought-after performer in her own right, UK native, Lisa Olivant has just completed four years intensive training at the prestigious Royal Northern College of Music, and she’s ready to unleash her artistic prowess into the world.
KAYTE embodies a revolution against pretence and perfection with her unique blend of honest, reflective songwriting.
Washed in melodic, soulful RnB, she shines an intimate light on the reality of life recovering from mental illness with warmth, humour and insight, creating tunes that reflect the hidden parts of an increasingly complicated life.
Podramu has only just recently started out as a solo singer-songwriter after a decade of singing covers for rich people, but, alongside his trusty band of friend-sicians, he hopes to conquer the world and ultimately face Donald Trump in a fight to the death. His influences include Rufus Wainwright, The Divine Comedy and Stevie Wonder. He is currently recording his first live studio album and believes it will be 'lit', though doesn't fully understand what this word means
So save the date, add it to your calendar, pin it on your notice board as you won’t want to miss this one.
