Romeo and Michele Stodart (The Magic Numbers)
The Magic Numbers quickly shot to media attention after selling out London's Kentish Town Forum solely on the strength of their loyal following, before the release of their self-titled 2005 debut album. This record was subsequently nominated for the Mercury Music Prize. The Magic Numbers went on to become one of the nation's best-loved bands and have shared stages with the likes of Brian Wilson, The Flaming Lips, The Who, Morrissey, U2 and Bright Eyes to name a few.
If the group aren't busy in the studio, lead singer and songwriter Romeo Stodart can usually be found providing his effortless guitar playing for artists as diverse as the legendary Jimmy Webb and, most recently, Spritualized, on whose latest album, 'Sweet Heart Sweet Light', he features. Romeo is also an avid supporter of Damon Albarn's Africa Express, having been involved since its conception at Glastonbury's Park Stage. Out of this have come a number of Magic Numbers collaborations, including on the song 'All I Believe In' with Malian stars Amadou & Mariam, featured on the soundtrack to blockbuster smash The Twilight Saga: New Moon.
In 2012, the band's Michele Stodart released her beautifully composed acoustic and country-inspired debut solo album, 'Wide-Eyed Crossing', on which she played most of the instruments. The album also features a duet with Conor O'Brien of Villagers on live favourite 'Invitation to the Blues'.
Badly Drawn Boy
t was June 2000 when the Mercury Prize-winning, seminal 'The Hour of the Bewilderbeast', announced the arrival of the badly drawn genius of Damon Gough. It's been a curious, wonderful, inimitable, unpredictable career so far of major prizes and minor incidents, all possibilities and magic in the air.
Since then he has released four subsequent studio albums - Have You Fed The Fish? (2002), One Plus One Is One (2004), Born In The UK (2006) and It's What I'm Thinking Part 1: Photographing Snowflakes (2010) - and three film soundtracks, About A Boy (2002, from the film of the same name), Is There Nothing We Could Do? (2009, from the Caroline Aherne film The Fattest Man In The UK) and Being Flynn (from the 2012 film of the same name).
Badly Drawn Boy's soundtrack to the 2002 film About A Boy, starring Hugh Grant, remains one of Badly Drawn Boy's most critically acclaimed and successful albums (certified Gold in the UK) and spawned two singles, 'Silent Sigh' and 'Something To Talk About'.
Bird to Beast
Armed with infectious songs of love and wonder, new pysch-folk duo, Bird To Beast spin magic from the sounds of yesteryear to create something fresh and unique. Their timeless melodies and soaring harmonies tip a hat to the pop nous of greats like The Beach Boys, Kate Bush and The Beatles as well as contemporary singer-songwriters like Rufus Wainwright and James Mercer.
Their debut self titled album is out now on MUK Records.
Race to the Sea
'Race to the Sea's talent for delicate folk songcraft is equally matched by his grasp of experimental, shoegazey atmospherics. With his soulful, breathy vocals, quietly strummed acoustics and judicious use of effects pedals, he's a one-man indie-folk orchestra, creating music of considerable shape and texture, but with an intimacy and emotional heft that sometimes feels like he's singing directly into your ear. The missing link between Lost Souls-era Doves, Nick Drake and Cocteau Twins; you don't so much listen to these songs as allow them to soak blissfully into your synapses." Manchester Evening News
