Gavin Mart

The life and times of one Gavin Mart will not yet be repeated here... Suffice it to say a musical biography will be suitable, easily. Having studied music and drums throughout his teens and through college, Gavin one day found an old battered acoustic guitar in a church hall cupboard. After much due repair, care and attention to the axe, and ten or so years self teaching and study Gavin would proudly call himself a singer-songwriter, first and foremost.

Ruarri joseph

Few artists begin their career with the rollercoaster ride Ruarri Joseph found himself on. Three years ago, the singer/songwriter was playing in pubs in his native Newquay, partly for fun, partly to supplement his income from a succession of dreary day jobs. Then in late 2006, he unexpectedly landed a deal with a major label and, just six months later, the demos he had recorded at home became the basis of his acclaimed, debut album, Tales Of Grime And Grit.

Loch Lomond

Long a popular fixture of the Portland music landscape, Loch Lomond effortlessly combines their symphonic nature with chamber-pop melodies. The six to nine performers orchestrate instruments to provoke a visceral experience that is both raw and emotional, weaving the distinct use of mandolin, theremin and saw along with the traditional indie instrumentation. Luring the listener with the unique range and power of his voice, Ritchie Young's vocal ability enables him to switch from fragility to thunder in the turn of a phrase.
