Jode Gannon –

Rock n roller Jode Gannon writes some seriously foot tapping, head nodding music. Coming from the humble beginnings of music class, where he was expelled on the last day of school for water-bombing his teachers groin area, his non-authoritarian view point has followed him to the present day. Despite Jode being told several times that he will never have a career in music, he now has two studio albums, ‘3 Hours’ and ‘Care Factor Zero’. Be sure to check out his SoundCloud for some great rock music.




Pizza Girl – (Previously known as Lumen)

“A Musical Boy” from Liverpool creating a very unique blend of electronic music characterised by wide open chorused, plenty of vocal reverb and a nice little mixture of electronic and traditional instruments. Music that is pleasantly confusing yet able to converge and make total sense at the same time, at present I am joyfully lost inside the depths of Pizzagirl’s carefully threaded wall of electronic sound.





CircleLight –

The project of 20 something year old Emanuele Durante, CircleLight is water marked by open, earnest lyrics, simple and catchy musicianship and wonderfully layered vocal harmonies – “Brother, don’t you see that we better open the doors, nobody comes first, and won’t you listen for a little while, and talk to those strangers outside”. Be sure to check out CircleLight’s new music on SoundCloud, as Emanuele has transformed his solo pastime into a 4 piece band.
