Lowpines »
Lo-fi Anglo-Americana-pop songs on cassette.

“Lowpines thrives on a remarkable sense of intimacy. Gently sketched out vignettes achieve a rare level of lyrical honesty, delivering home truths in an unadorned, direct and emotional manner.” Clash Magazine


Swimming Bell »
Atmospheric, exquisite and ethereal neo-folk harmony driven waves of lushness.

'Charming and delightful, full of infectious melodies, shimmering harmonies and pungent, pulsing rhythms" Huffington Post


Fell »
Stripped back, haunting melodies based around understated but nuanced vocals. Fell is the brainchild of Nicholas Burrows and his pastorally-poetic songs that deal with the magic, mystery & majesty of real & imagined landscapes, conjuring up images of sun-drenched mountain meadows & dark lakes, populated by strange characters hovering just out of view.

"Beautiful, sheeny, witty, baroque pop…very very special indeed." - Lauren Laverne, BBC6 Music

“I really really love his delivery; it’s incredibly personal…a beautiful voice.” - Guy Garvey, BBC6 Music


INDEPENDENT VENUE WEEK »
Independent Venue Week is a 7 day celebration of small music venues around the UK and a nod to the people that own, run and work in them, week in, week out giving artists their first experience of playing live in front of an audience and for fans, somewhere to get up close to artists that one day, may well be playing stadiums and festival main stages.

Small venues are the backbone of the live music scene in this country and Independent Venue Week wants to recognise all that they have done to create some of the most memorable nights of the past so they can continue to do the same in the future.


Independent Venue Week »
CELEBRATING THE SPIRIT OF INDEPENDENCE & CULTURE OF LIVE MUSIC

Independent Venue Week is a 7 day celebration of small music venues around the UK and a nod to the people that own, run and work in them, week in, week out.

These venues give artists their first experience of playing live in front of an audience and for fans, somewhere to get up close to artists that one day, may well be playing stadiums and festival main stages.

Supported using public funding by Arts Council England, Independent Venue Week brings together these venues along with breaking and established artists, promoters, labels, media, bloggers and tastemakers to create a nationwide series of gigs at the end of January.

These venues are the backbone of the live music scene in this country and Independent Venue Week wants to recognise all that they have done to create some of the most memorable nights of the past so they can continue to do the same in the future.
