Tickets £9 | 19:00
Macie Nyah: Empowered, Pink and Punchy, Macie Nyah has already blazed her own pop trail. At just twenty one years old, Macie has already performed at Latitude Festival, Sundown and Wildpaths after receiving unwavering BBC Introducing support. She takes influence from Anne-Marie, Dua Lipa and Rae, with earworm melodies that’ll follow you around. Macie is working on new music currently in pop-writing duo MYLA, working with other emerging pop artists.
Jaz Beeson: Lacking rage, owning pettiness: Jaz Beeson captures the nostalgic delight of Sunflower Pop and mashes in some brutal honesty. Taking inspo from Charli Adams and Plested, punchy drums anchor soaring harmonies, creating the soundtrack to your runaway road trip. 2021 saw Jaz receive stellar support from BBC Introducing Midlands, being announced as a tipped artist for 2022 as she celebrated for her debut EP Season Two. Tens of thousands of streams, an appearance on stage at Islington Assembly Hall alongside Lianne La Havas, and performing with Orla Gartland are just some of the highlights of the year. Jaz is set to launch her ‘People Pleaser’ era in late spring – firing out singles while basking in self-reflection. “People Pleaser is my reputation era’, its Sunflower Pop’s older sister, it’s bitter and inward looking and it needed to happen. I’ve people-pleased for far too long, now its time to break some hearts”.
ENNA is a 20-year-old pop songwriter from Bristol. Making up one half of songwriting duo MYLA, along with sharing her sad girl songs under her own artist project, Emily is preparing to release her debut single next year. Pulling from influences such as Julia Michaels and DYLAN, she plays with conversationality while knocking you off your feet with killer pop hooks.
Cora Rebel: Ethereal folk meets cool-girl indie pop: Cora Rebel is a multimedia storyteller who combines sketchbooks with a coming of age soundtrack. Think: Perks of Being a Wallflower. Her lyrically driven songs, wrapped up in a rich, layered production, touch with a sense of vulnerability synonymous with a YA audience. From a young age, music and art were Cora’s preferred languages. The fantasy worlds of her childhood have evolved into image-saturated songs along with illustrations of a parallel reality that she now shares with her audience. When she turned 18, she moved to London to immerse herself in the music scene and met her friends and collaborators who’ve helped bring her music to life. Her debut single is an indie pop tune inspired by the likes of Phoebe Bridgers and early The 1975; Cora is joining the newly defined era of sad girl sound.
