Alice Jemima Maturity seems a difficult task to achieve; however not for 17 year old Alice Jemima. Hailing from Newton Abbott, Alice reaps influences from Nerina Pallot, Corrine Bayley Rae and Norah Jones; She has featured on Rob De Bank's Radio 1 show, supported Nerina Pallot, and is set for many a BBC Introducing gig. But most importantly this speck of talent has played at the unveiling of the Olympic Rings in St Pancras Station in London. Currently recording her debut, Alice has set her mind straight and her goals clearly, aiding that adolescence to the schooling system (her refusal to attend any college for education) does NOT lessen your chances of success.

Richard James is a poetic, wordsmith and heart warming solo singer-songwriter from Exeter. With his remarkable voice he constricts the audience and paints a wonderful picture for all to see; Richard James shows no shame and puts his heart into every performance, a true showman. Inspired by artists Maroon 5, Bruno Mars and Newton Faulkner, Richard James has achieved ground beginning success with acoustic live lounge sessions with BBC Radio Devon and supporting acts such as Rory Ellis and Erik Mongrain.

Currently promoting his debut album Waiting For The Call Richard has been playing gigs in London and expanding on his fanbase.
