Paul Hanly
After some time away from the music scene, Surrey based singer songwriter guitarist Paul Hanly has recently returned to tread the road and reignite his music once again.
Paul’s musical influences are an amalgamation from the world of folk, country rock with some slight jazz leanings thrown in. Paul’s compositions are an evocative mixed assortment, thrust forward by a backdrop of guitar supportiveness and embellishment where melody, bass and percussion emanate from a single nylon strung guitar.

Dobly and The Newmarkets
They are a shoegazing acoustic duo between Rie and Hide. Their music is an alternative dreamy and soothing melody, heavily influenced by shoegazing, folk, and pop music.

They are the creative collaboration between Masa Iida, singer/songwriter from Yokohama, Japan, and London-born guitarist & co-writer Neil Mason.
While their influences are eclectic – Lou Reed, Radiohead, Nick Drake, Jeff Buckley, David Sylvian, to name a few – the uniqueness of O-ARC’s music comes from their minimalist approach.
The name O-ARC is inspired by the concept of enso (which means circle in Japanese). Closely linked to Zen philosophy, enso represents enlightenment, strength, elegance, the universe, the void, and the moment. It is believed that only someone who is spiritually complete can draw a perfect circle.
