LISA AMBROSE is an up and coming singer/songwriter, oft described as breathtaking. She comes from a wonderful little town in Suffolk called Bungay and has one of the most incredible voices I have every heard, she’s an extraordinary songwriter, a truly gifted song-stress. and an unbelievably talented musician.
LUCY SAMPSON is a singer-songwriter based in Benhall, Suffolk, grounded in the great tradition of British song writing and acoustic roots, with a fresh and uncluttered indie-folk sensibility. Lucy would cite the Watersons, Kate Rusby, Norah Jones, Jim Moray, and Eliza Carthy, as influences. There are echoes of Laura Marling and Sarah Siskind in her vocal approach, and a splash of John Martyn and Nick Drake modal elements to her guitar style.
FREYA ROY is an astonishingly talented 15 yr old singer/songwriter and guitarist from Halesworth. Utilising a looping pedal and her delightful voice she creates layers of emotive, heartfelt and atmospheric indie/folk songs. Her début album comes out in June.
Russell J Turner is an actor, poet, broadcaster and promoter based in Norwich. He has published two poetry chapbooks, has appeared in various print and online journals, and is part of the 28 Sonnets Later collective: www.
