GRAFTON ASH + THE TIN PIGEONS + THE SUNSET BEACH HUT
Grafton Ash are a four-piece pop/folk band from Worcestershire, UK. With their strong vocal harmonies and fusion of electronic and acoustic styles, the bands live set projects a dark energy that combines well with their subtle, meaningful lyrics.
Their debut EP Avalanche was released in summer 2015 and quickly gained attention and backing of BBC Introducing. With the title track becoming ‘Track of the Week’ twice and the lads being invited to film a live session on the BBC Introducing stage at Nozstock.
They have joined FLYTE, Tom Walker & Outlya, supporting them all on their UK tours and despite being unsigned; the past few years have seen them share the stage with The Feeling, The Fratellis and Reef, playing sold out headline shows at the Birmingham O2 Institute & London O2 Academy Islington along the way.
The boys were recently invited to support James Blunt on his Afterlove World Tour at Arena Birmingham, stepping in for singer-songwriter Jamie Lawson in his absence.

Watch an acoustic version of ‘Sirens’ below:
After a few false starts, two guys in a bedroom just outside of Shrewsbury created The Sunset Beach Hut and with the addition of a singer they are now ready to show the world what they have created.
The new year has kicked off to a good start for trio The Sunset Beach Hut with the release of their two-track single ‘Comfort’ and a couple of packed headline shows at The Sunflower Lounge.
Their variety of music tastes is reflected across their music, but mostly their tracks are synth heavy with 70s sounding guitar riffs, funky bass lines and pop inspired vocals, but listen up and you may be surprised by what you might hear.
Accomplishments to date include headlining venues like the O2 Academy3, Mama Roux’s and The Sunflower Lounge, and supporting bands such as The Cheap Thrills and La Dharma. They were BBC introducing Shropshire’s track of the week twice in 2017 with their single ‘The Other Side’ and a demo of their track ‘Comfort’.
