Hotly tipped 4 piece from the Isle of Wight with infectious songs and witty lyrics far beyond their years are about to become part of YOUR life.
The band recently signed with Chess Club Records and will be releasing their debut single ‘Lola’ in January 2020. This sub 2 minute track, along with 5 others all produced in their own studio on the Isle of Wight are turning heads all round the music industry. With further singles to follow early in 2020, the full 6 track mini-album will drop in the Spring of 2020.
In 2015, not long after dropping out of university to pursue music, Atwell garnered the attention of major news outlets after a slew of showcases for The Great Escape Festival. The Independent and The Guardian were amongst those impressed by the artist’s performances, describing her as “a promising folk poet of suppression and inner anxiety” and “a gifted singer-songwriter with a voice like slow, cool water”.
Two years on from her debut album, the 5-Track EP ‘Big Blue’ was released in May 2019. Two for the five tracks were playlists by BBC Radio 6 Music. UK tour dates followed, and she played some key UK festivals during the Summer; Deer Shed Festival, Green Man Festival, Larmer Tree Festival. She continues to tour during the Fall…a full UK Tour in October + appearances at Reeperbahn Festival (Hamburg), London Calling (Amsterdam) and Rolling Stone Weekender Festival/s in Germany later in November.
Originally from Pembrokeshire and now calling London her home, Bryde's influences can be pinned to PJ Harvey, Warpaint and Cat Power, although she has managed to craft her own style of driving and earnest music irrespective of these connections.
Bryde released the critically acclaimed 'Like an Island' album in 2018. Released via her own Seahorse label, Bryde has now signed with Easy Life Records and begins recording her sophomore album the Autumn. She also recently put pen to paper with JIM (Just Isn't Music) Publishing - Ninja Tunes publishing division.
'It’s been (it still is) a process of trying to find what I want from music and what kind of music makes me happy, in terms of writing and performing."
Now, as a 22 year old singer-songwriter from Kings Lynn, Soham releases his most ambitiously produced single to-date - ‘Bury Me’. Produced by Ben Allen (Amber Run), Beats and Electronica are front and centre whilst the singer-songwriter traditions resonate throughout with song structure, melody and lyric.
Soham has performed at some key European festivals this Summer; Pink Pop, WOMAD…to name but two. In October, Soham will perform at the Wild Paths Festivals in Norwich - a brand new tastemaker festival with a hugely credible line-up From there, he heads back into Europe where he’ll play 6 shows opening for Heather Nova.
Tina was Northern Lights Management first ever client.
Tina moved to London back in 2002 to write and develop a career outside of her native Denmark. The move worked... She released her 11th studio album 'Fastland' in late 2018 and has been touring the record ever since.
Along the way, the Tina wrote and performed with Zero 7 on their classic 'When It Falls' album. This gave her songs and voice a platform which was grasped firmly by Tina.
Having now released somewhere in the region of 150 songs, the now household name in Denmark continues to build a loyal and fanatical audience all around the world.
From the age of five - when she found her father’s broken guitar behind the sofa and began to teach herself to play - music has been refuge for Charlene Soraia, whether listening to her father play or discovering the music of another time, from the Beatles and Bowie to West Coast psych-rock. By the age of eight she was attending local up-to-the-mic sessions in Beckenham, either singing and playing or scrutinising fellow players chord progressions with notebook in hand.
Despite not having Music GCSE (to this day she can’t read music) she won
a place at the prestigious Brit School, where she was a contemporary of Adele and Katy B. While these were formative years, you get the feeling that much of her education was outside the classroom. Summers were - and still are - spent at Glastonbury taking in the music and playing but mostly hanging out in the Healing Fields. Charlene’s free ranging spirit - always dusted with a touch of the cosmic - can be heard in her eclectic style which adheres to no genre. In 2011 Charlene signed to UK indie label Peacefrog and recorded Moonchild, a diverse collection of songs that revealed an idiosyncratic songwriting and performing talent. During the making of her debut album she was offered a small fee to record a cover of The Calling’s Wherever You Will Go for a TV advert. The song shot to No.3 in the charts and - with over 60 million Spotify hits and counting - continues to capture hearts around the world. Where’s My Tribe sees Charlene return to her roots - playing guitar and singing self- penned songs. Unadorned, unmediated, alone. Straight from the heart.
Lola started learning to play the piano at aged 9 - being taught by Kate Walsh. Even back then, the ingredients were there, the tone, the drive, the star quality.
Now aged 16, Lola is beginning to explore where her songs can go by pollinating her original ideas with current Electro/RnB production. It's early days, but Lola is destined for greatness.
