Call Me Unique- Birmingham

music. Not only is her studio sound brilliant, her live performances are something incredible to say the least as well. When performing, she constantly includes her audience into her songs, even getting them to make up the lyrics to an improved song at the end of her sets. Consistently delivering her very best, the artist definitely lives up to her stage name as unique. An upcoming artist with no boundaries set in achieving her goals.
Gallery 47- Nottingham
Acoustic singer/songwriter screams out modern day Bob Dylan and Nick Cave, with superb guitar playing skills and endearing vocals. As his music has progressed, he has shown that he is not a one trick pony, crafting his sound even more and though his music might have a close connection to an older generation of artists, he’s made it sound new, exciting and bold.
By The River- Leicester
It’s practically illegal to talk about live music in Leicester and not talk about By The Rivers. They mix a blend of different genres together such as Soul, Afro Beat and Reggae to create a sound that is everything you’re looking for when you’re out on the scout for some feel-good music. These guys seem to have been at the tipping point of main stream success for so long now, will 2017 be their year?
Eva Plays Dead- Derby
Whilst their sound is modern, Eva Plays Dead ooze with the essence of 70’s Rock ‘N’ Roll, giving them a unique edge in giving them the chance to keep rising to the top. The Derby band have ultimately gone from strength to strength and are a shining
example to true attitude driven Rock music. With hard-hitting riffs and bellowing vocals, they are a band to be watched as they develop their style more with each track they release. Vocalist Tiggy Dee belts out mind-blowing vocals in sync with the
melodies that the rest of the band produces for an exciting and fresh sound.
