Katie Sutherland

Based in Kirkintilloch, Scotland, Katie Sutherland is an up and coming singer-songwriter with a gift for delivering cheekily sentimental lyrics with a smoothly singular - and often eccentric - charm and charisma, much like her musical influences Damien Rice, Pete Doherty and Regina Spektor. ...and all that nonsense. Just listen to her, she's proper brilliant.

Yellowjackets

In 1977, Robben Ford assembled a group of veteran session musicians to record his album The Inside Story. The trio of musicians, which included keyboardist Russell Ferrante, bassist Jimmy Haslip and drummer Ricky Lawson, soon discovered a certain "chemistry" and musical affinity that led to their formation of Yellowjackets. The Inside Story being mainly instrumental, Robben Ford's record label wanted him to record another album that was more pop and vocal oriented. The group, known as the Robben Ford Group, preferred to pursue the instrumental route, and a "band within a band" was formed.
