Alex Francis
Was raised in sleepy Hertfordshire town Hitchin, but moved to Brighton to realise his musical dreams in a more creative and exciting environment before relocating to North London last year.

Alex's emotive melding of rock and soul emerged out of the London grass roots rock scene in 2015 and spurned a completely organic rise to prominence that few singer-song writers have experienced.

Alex opened for Samm Henshaw at his 'Sound Experiment - Part 1' EP launch im August at The Lexington and supported Luke Sital Singh at the Brighton Dome last September. He won the support of TimeOut magazine's 'Rising Stars' artist programme at the end of last year - showcasing him at some of his highest profile shows to date.

Alex's debut EP lands in January 2017, following successful sessions in Nashville and Belfast and London this year collaborating alongside Anders Grahn (Haley Reinhart, Magnus Tingsek) Dan Smith (The Noisettes) Gareth Dunlop and Josh Grant (Samm Henshaw)

Sonically Himalayas offer seductive guitar lines, hip bass parts that will groove you to the core all driven by an avalanche of drums. The songs are melodic and fresh with lyrics and hook lines so catchy you can hang your hat on them.

Carnival Club
Carnival Club a new Manchester based four piece give old fashioned rock n roll a youthful indie spin.

'They may have been together less than six months but their well-rehearsed line in buzzy indie rock n roll defies their infancy as a band. They have already played some of Manchester's favourite venues including Factory, Academy and The O2 Ritz, sharing the stage with some of the city's most liked local bands.' - Louder Than War.

'Their reputation has preceded them with lots of people we trust tipping them for bigger things and we have to say we're not disappointed at all, by an energetic vibrant set that's impressive for how it is one moment a full on aural assault before turning into something melodic.
