At just 26 years old, Harry Jordan has made her mark on the Rock n Roll scene, creating a new brand of decadent Rockabilly, which has earnt her the coveted title of BBC Introducing Artist Of The Week, noted as ‘The Best of Boomtown’ on the Steve Lamacq show and earning praise from the original Queen of Rockabilly ‘Wanda Jackson.
Similar reactions have been garnered by everyone hearing her recordings or witnessing her live performances along with her band of pirates. Comprising Toby Smith, Tommy Greaves, Kris Hill and Michelle Dawes. Very much an artist of 2018, but with an image harking naturally back to the classic days of fifties calendar glamour, their sound is a force of nature, a radio-friendly barrage of good times and primal energy, with tales of Hellfire, bad women and the equally bad men that are their eternal opposites.
The aptly named ‘Devils Been Keeping My Seat Warm’ will be Harry’s second single release of 2018, and promises to deliver everything her 15,000 strong army of fans have come to expect. From tribal drums, sleazy guitar riffs and a stomping bass line this latest offering will prove Harry Jordan is still well and truly leading the Rock n Roll pack.
‘Devils Been Keeping My Seat Warm’ will be available from 14th September on all major digital music services.

Vulnerable, honest, ethereal: this is the music of Speak, Brother.
Boasting a powerful indie-folk-rock sound with subtle hymnal and gospel tones, their story based anthems have drawn comparisons to the likes of Of Monsters and Men, Kodaline and Fleet Foxes.
After successful tours with the likes of Julien Barbagallo (Tame Impala), the band stamped their mark on the scene with their crowdfunded Album “Young & Brave” in April 2018. The Album recorded with Gavin Monaghan (The Sherlocks) achieved multiple plays on BBC Radio 2 and became BBC Georgey’s artist of the week with a sound to have been “designed to swell the emotions and arrest the heart” (Listen with Monger).
The band are coming back to Birmingham with a new single and a UK headline tour in November 2018.

Bristol-based singer/songwriter Natalie Holmes writes lilting, haunting and yet somehow invigorating pop, with honey-toned vocals and an incredible depth to every song.

Although just into her twenties, Natalie has clocked up four successful EP’s: The Simplest Things, Child, Over & Out and her last release, Calm Places, all of which featured in the iTunes Top 10 Singer/Songwriter Charts and earn’t her spots at Isle of Wight Festival, 2000 Trees, Dot to Dot and support slots with Gabrielle Aplin, Lewis Watson and Sam Brookes.
