Emil Brynge

In 2008, Emil Brynge relocated to London from his native Sweden, having already performed in the UK at various gigs and festivals since 2006. His songs and lyrics are infused with his reverence for nature, and a deep interest in visual art inspired him to write a song about Brancusi's sculpture 'Bird In Space'. As a guitarist, Brynge's finger-picking style is strongly influenced by musicians such as Nick Drake, Robin Williamson, Bert Jansch and The Incredible String Band. He also plays several other instruments including sitar, violin and piano.

Weddings Parties Anything

Weddings Parties Anything, often known as WPA and Weddoes, is an Australian folk rock band formed by Mick Thomas in Melbourne in 1985 and continuing until 1998. Their name came from a Clash song ("Revolution Rock") and musicologist Billy Pinnell described their first album as the best Australian rock debut since Skyhooks' Living in the '70s. WPA initially gained a reputation as a hot new band through their constant touring in their early days, however they never really became a commercial success.

Penny Century

1. Penny Century consists of five northern youngsters hailing from Ostersund, Sweden. They are first and foremost dear friends, but also happen to share a huge love for pop-music. So writing and performing songs together came along rather natural, and the band Penny Century were soon formed. The guitarists and songwriters Erik Persson and Kim Fastesson are also members of local rockband Archer and the rhythm-section, Pontus Sillren and Martin Soderin used to play in various odd, experimental groups when they were younger.

Hjaltalin

The band Hjaltalín (Fix your tags!) began as a one-act thing in the music scene of MH, a Reykjavik gymnasium that is renowned for harboring musicians. Things have evolved since then, personnel changed, and the band has actually changed course regarding musical styles in the meantime, although the band is certainly hard to categorize with influences ranging from modern indie rock to 60’s pop music to classical music.
