They have played at many established venues such as the 02 islington Academy2, The Relentless Garage, The Reading Facebar, The Aldershot West End Centre, The Boileroom, The Joiners, The Camden Barfly and more.

In January 2011 Follow Wyliss released their first single "Turbulance" from their debut EP which was broadcast on 96.4 The Eagle's unsigned podcast, where they received glowing reviews. In May 2011, the eagerly awaited follow up "Never For A Second EP" was released. Along with their first Mini tour in August 2011 including headlining Guildford’s Boileroom and playing at other established venues including Newport’s Le Pub, Southampton's Joiners and the Camden Barfly!

Not Made In China

NMIC recall the sound of The Smiths, Paul Simon, and Kirsty MacColl to name a few; but create a joyous noise all of their own.

Experienced around the local live circuit, playing pubs, clubs, festivals, and radio; Not Made In China’s interweaving guitar melodies, soaring harmonies, afrobeat drumming, and bouncing bass lines will surely get stuck in your skull..

NMIC have also recently recorded an EP, mixed by Digby Smith (Island Records), at Conversion Studios in Dorset, and on the strength of this are looking to expand their fanbase, and book gigs further afield.

*****************

'They are a real treasure of a band. And if there is indeed a God in Heaven; they’ll soon be too big for a town like Bournemouth. So catch them while you can' (BH One)

'Their debut EP is an all-round feelgood indie record, which is bound to have you clapping your hands, and stomping your pigeon-toed feet' (247 Magazine)

Bel Casino

Bel Casino are very much a product of the South Coast... Life and love by the sea has worked its influence into their music in an evocative way. Whether you view the music live or lock into a recording, the sights and sounds of the streets and beaches they walk are brimming out of the songs.

The band's sound is about melody and meaning. They are looking to connect with an audience's spirit through tales of love and adventure, locked up in stories and metaphors.

The band has enjoyed a number of successes since getting together in late 2008, notably being semi-finalists in 2010's Dorset Music Awards, receiving critical praise on BBC Introducing South's Demo Panel and subsequently appearing as the live session band on that show, securing a live interview and acoustic session on Wave 105, recording and releasing their début EP "Seventeen", not to mention playing numerous sell out shows across the south of England.

Bel Casino are proud of their reputation as an ambitious, professional young band looking to make the most of every opportunity that comes their way!

Rue Royale

The album includes recent single “Halfway Blind” which got repeat plays on BBC 6Music by the likes of Gideon Coe and Nemone when released as a limited edition seven inch in January. The song, along with “Blame”, alludes to a struggle to see clearly – figuratively and literally for Brookln who’s legally blind in one eye. ‘Guide To An Escape’ is about self-discovery, embracing the flip-sides of life on the road (“Foreign Night”) and the tussle of uncertainty and hope as dreams are chased (“We’ll Go On Alright”).

After clocking up over 400 shows in the last three years, Rue Royale will continue to build their grass-roots following as they tour ‘Guide To An Escape’, playing many of their biggest venues yet across Europe in 2011.

It’s all about the journey, not the destination. The adventure is theirs, and yours, for the taking.

Fearne

If energy, talent and passion could be measured in gold, Fearne would be millionaires. The Bournemouth foursome, Alex Beds (vocal and acoustic guitar), Adam Pulfer (vocals and electric guitar), Nick Bryson (vocals, bass and synths) and Darren Barret (drums) are taking indie pop/rock to a whole new level and winning an army of fans in the process. With exceptional live performances it’s no wonder they have been on the road supporting artists such as Feeder, Athlete, Nizlopi, Stornoway and Diana Vickers. 2009 saw a busy year of touring culminating in their playing to 10,000 people and gaining many new fans with several sessions for BBC Radio Solent. Now with a new 6 track self-titled EP, 2010 is set to see them reach even greater heights.

Principal songwriter of the band, Alex Beds, has the voice and the lyrics to simultaneously charm you and break your heart. But don’t be fooled by his quiet assurance and unassuming persona, this man is a born entertainer and can whip up a crowd to fever pitch within seconds of stepping out onto the stage. The rhythm section of Fearne is key to their sound. Nick Bryson’s driving bass lines inject electric energy and funky overtones to deliver an exciting, multi-layered, complex sound. With Adam Pulfer’s searing lead guitar and Darren Barret’s throbbing drum section Fearne conjure up sonorous perfection. With influences from Damien Rice to Marty McFly, the Fearne boys’ eclecticism is charming.

Fearne’s magic lies in mixing the recognised Brighton sound with the heartfelt, weighty delivery emblematic of romantic Bournemouth. Further add a measure of dry wit with a good dose of eccentricity and you have a recipe for success. If you like your indie pop/rock energetic, your band members passionate and your performances polished to perfection, then look no further.
