ADMT

'Adam is a combination of Stevie Wonder and Tom Misch' Huw Stephens BBC Radio One

'One of the freshest artists we've come across' - BBC Introducing

New single https://soundcloud.com/iamadmt/admt-demons

“It’s just real stuff, man. The truth,” says Adam ‘ADMT’ Taylor of where his music comes from. “This is all about the things that have happened to me. The things that have hurt me. The people around me and what they’re going through. It’s all in there.”

ADMT’s slick but streetwise take on love, loss, heartache and the reality of being a young man in the 21st Century took shape during his formative years in Doncaster.

Here is an artist soon to be filed alongside the likes of Tom Grennan, Ed Sheeran and Lewis Capaldi. Now ADMT is here with a lean, chart-threatening sound and vision of his own. You get a crystal clear first impression of ADMT with debut single ‘Man Now’ – a bold and infectious guitar ballad driven by subtle infectious R&B beats. It’s an automatic earworm but anchored by a heartfelt honestly and painful nostalgia.

He’s conquered hearts with his stirring live performances, and wait until you hear the wealth of material he’s already written. The sophisticated dark-pop bounce of ‘Bad Vibe’ is destined for worldwide radio play, ‘I Can’t Hold Your Love’ is going to break plenty of hearts, and the twitching and genre-hopping ‘Goodforyouforme’ is as close to a bonafide banger as you could hope to hear.

Link Lewis

“There’s a saying in the music industry, that it’s hard to cut through ‘The Noise’ to make an impact. Link Lewis has done just that. He’s a serious talent and one to look out for in 2019.” - Pete ‘Boxsta’ Martin (James Arthur, Jessie J, Arrow Benjamin & Mali Music).

“Link Lewis’ soulful tones rub up along side caramel soft beats.” – Clash Magazine

“His soulful voice, along with his multi talented instrument skills, transports us into a nostalgic atmosphere.” - Born Music Online

“ Rising UK soul-pop singer-songwriter is one talented guy – not only does he write and sing his own mellow RnB-infused songs, he’s an in-demand studio producer and lifelong pianist/saxophonist to boot.” - Gig Soup

Since dropping his debut release in late 2018, fast-rising UK RnB singer-songwriter Link Lewis has been picking up acclaim everywhere he goes. Taking inspiration from RnB idols Brent Faiyaz, Miguel, Khalid and Lauryn Hill, the British Artist has begun putting his stamp on the Indie RnB genre with his distinctively soulful voice. The multi-instrumentalist was quick to make an impression, racking up over half a million streams with his first 5 single releases in just 9 months. 

“There’s a saying in the music industry, that it’s hard to cut through ‘The Noise’ to make an impact. Link Lewis has done just that. He’s a serious talent and one to look out for in 2019.” - Pete ‘Boxsta’ Martin (James Arthur, Jessie J, Arrow Benjamin & Mali Music).

Everyday People

'A funk tour-de-force' – BBC Introducing

'Everyday People just seem to get better and better musically. This is a band who really know how to play…they’re smooth and funky' – Local Sound and Focus

'Authentic-sounding soul' – Shake A Hoof

‘Everyday People are a funk pop band that formed in Leeds in 2018. They credit their sound to many influences, from Booker T. & the M.G.s and Sophie Ellis-Bextor to Franc Moody and Tom Misch. The band are on an exciting rise, having released a trio of singles over the summer and recently played a sold-out show at Brudenell Social Club. They have also performed at a wide variety of prestigious venues such as 360 Club, Headingley Stadium and Wharf Chambers.

They have a number of major shows and releases planned for the autumn and winter, as well as a tour in early 2020’

Shades

This lively duo brought their heads together after meeting in Leeds in 2017. Creating a force that will never be stopped, these two have been biding their time, working and writing to create something really quite wonderful; a live experience for their audience with the scope and ambition of a stadium concert.

Vocalist, Kate Oates provides melodies that will stay with you all year, bringing an energy to the stage that is just infectious. Guitarist, Ben Clark takes funk to a whole new level whilst battling with the audience to see who can jump around the most. Together these two have an amazing chemistry on stage that rubs off on everyone who watches - the room comes alive when Shades enter and leave you feeling refreshed and revitalised.

They’ve been compiling all their eclectic influences into a unique blend, that will make your feet want to dance, and your heart break. Shades will take you back through those cherished years of music, taking 70s disco, 80s synths, and 90s EDM, topping it all off with a modern pop twist. Their sound is comparable to a series of chart topping artists such as Billie Eilish, The 1975, Friendly Fires and No Rome. Get ready for their sing-along vocal harmonies, deceptive chord sequences and infectious rhythms
