Abigail Hannah is a 21 year-old singer/songwriter from Kent, UK. She has been writing songs since she was 9 years old and has always had a love for country music. Currently she is promoting her first EP ‘Between The Lines’ which was released on April 21st 2021.
Abigail has performed in the city of Brighton, as well as her home town Tunbridge Wells. She has been a student at the University of Nottingham for the past two years but has taken a break from her studies and is focusing on her music.
Paris Paloma is a 21 year old singer-songwriter from the UK. Her debut single “Narcissus” was released in 2020, followed by her second single “Ocean Baby” and her most popular track to date, “Underneath.” Her latest track “Cradle” was released on the 1st April 2021.
Cradle is Paris Paloma’s most vulnerable and emotive song yet. It sounds like the moment you realise that at one point as a child your parents put you down and never picked you back up again; of wanting to be small enough to be held in a way that is no longer possible once you reach adulthood, of grieving not only a person but also the loss of the way they held you platonically. In a time when the discussion around sexual violence is prevalent, it speaks of the touch-starvation that goes alongside the fear of being touched; mourning the loss of the protection that comes with being an infant, before the sense of “touch” becomes complicated and potentially damaging.
Maggie Baring is an 18 year old, UK based singer songwriter. Her simple, acoustic style and pure voice lend an individuality to her music that echoes folky, country styles. Maggie has been writing songs since she was 12, and plays piano and guitar. She hopes to expand her audience in the future, and performed her first online concert in March.
Maggie released her debut single, ‘T-Shirt’, in 2018 and has developed her sound along the way. In 2020 she released four singles, ‘Hit the Ground’, ‘The Morning After the Night Before’, ‘Conscious Dreaming’ and a collaboration with pianist Auriel, ‘Delphine’. All of these were produced from her bedroom during lockdown.
In 2021, Maggie will be following up her new single, ‘Poem’, with an EP.
Izzie Yardley is an independent alt-folk artist based in London. Her debut release ‘Aurelia’ was a self-produced “experiment” (as she would put it), receiving excited reviews in indie blogs. This is followed by latest single ‘I’m Still Here’ – a co-production with jazz bassist Nick Pini, that has already been shown favorable support from BBC Introducing.
Recently she’s been seen supporting classic songwriters such as Ethan Johns and Simon Joyner and in four years of playing she’s been invited to play Union Chapel, Letters Live, Chris Difford’s Joy Festival, Byline Festival, as well as regularly performing at London’s best-loved venues such as Spiritual Bar, Camden.
