Samuel is a 25 year old London-based singer/songwriter hailing from Edinburgh. Currently at the mercy of the locals in any open mic night he can find he is most happy with a guitar in his hand and his eyes at the ceiling. Often defaulting to melancholy he offers an emotive perspective through resonant guitar parts and weathered vocals, throwing finesse out the window for honesty. Released on the 19th August a couple of years ago, his debut record entitled \’If You Be My\’ (which he is very, very excited about) offers a raw introduction to not only his inner conflicts but equally his take on the world that moves before him.
Ben was born in Carlisle, in the North near to the border of
Scotland. He now lives and writes songs in London, just South of the river.
Leaving school at sixteen, Ben went to work in several of the
factories around Carlisle. During this period, Ben discovered the
songs of Bob Dylan. Instantly taken with his music, he spent his
shifts in the factory with smuggled ear phones he pretended were ear plugs, listening and studying Dylan’s giant songbook. Evenings were spent learning these songs on an old acoustic guitar he borrowed from his uncle.
Along with many early blues and folk standards Ben knew many Dylan’s songs by heart. His own songs came soon after, and now writing and performing them is his sole occupation.
Over recent years Ben has supported artists like Joan Armatrading in major concert venues across Sweden, Denmark, Germany, the UK and Ireland. He also regularly plays with the ‘Ben Holland Band’- usually marathon several hour sets that are becoming well known must-see fixtures on the London circuit.
Gabriel Moreno is a published poet and singer songwriter from Gibraltar. His songs fuse Mediterranean rhythms with Indie/folk arpeggios performed with a classical guitar. Based on his literary publications, Gabriel versifies lyrics of Love, loss and desire, which are transmitted in sheer emotional nakedness. Having played with multiple bands in Gibraltar, Italy, Peru and Spain, Gabriel Moreno started his solo project in the UK in 2010. Since then he has become an important part of the Alternative Folk scene in London, perfroming all over town and hosting acclaimed music nights at The Betsey Trotwood, Jonestown, Karamel Restaurant and other poetry and music venues. He also has 8 collections of poetry published in Spanish and English and released his debut album with Amber Records in 2015. He is currently working on a new album and a new book of poetry based on poetry in the war of Afghanistan.
