THE MONO LPS
The Mono LPs create Indie rock with an alternative feel. With Ste Reid on lead vocal and guitar, Vicky Mutch on cello and backing vocals, Chris Barlow on bass, and Daniel Beech on drums, this Liverpool four-piece produce an energetic and exciting sound that’s more than just the sum of its parts. So far this year the band has been busy in the recording studio but have still found time to play at Threshold Festival in Liverpool and Fosnavåg Rock in Norway.

Jesse Terry is an internationally award-winning singer-songwriter from Wilton, Connecticut, USA, whose transcendent life and music make him one of the most prolific indie artists today; his intimacy with audiences, sincerity, and approachability solidifying him as a favourite at US live venues. With three albums to his name, this salt of the earth musician’s lyrical mastery, emotional depth, and soothing voice have often been compared to the likes of Ryan Adams, Jackson Browne, Ray LaMontagne, and James Taylor, reaching deep into listeners’ hearts to envelope them in shared joy, sadness, love, and unrelenting hope. Jesse has garnered worldwide acclaim by winning The John Lennon Songwriting Contest, The NSAI/CMT Song Contest, and The We Are Listening Singer/Songwriter Awards.

Paul Straws is a guitar, piano, ukulele and mandolin playing singer/songwriter. Though he doesn’t play them all at the same time. Paul presents his new recordings, awash with mandolins, ukulele, glorious harmonies and gorgeous cello, and tells tales of love, loss and betrayal. Once lauded for his ‘great songwriting’ by Tom Robinson, Paul has set out on his new project to much acclaim from early reviews and fantastic radio play from Dave Monks at BBC Introducing, in addition to appearing on Qatar and Canadian radio stations! Currently embarking on his first raft of gigs with his band of wonderful misfits, he is also building a web presence with several low fi videos which can be found at paulstraws.com
