Harri Endersby from acoustic to electronic, Harri blurs the lines of the folk genre, drawing inspiration from both contemporary and traditional music, as well as the rugged landscape of County Durham, the place that she calls home.
Her debut album Homes/Lives, released in February 2017, has impressed critics around the country and she has had tracks played on BBC Radio 6, Radio Scotland, and Radio Wales. Homes/Lives presents a transition in style, beginning with acoustic, stripped-back tracks whilst gradually introducing electronic instrumentation and beats as the album progresses. www.harriendersby.com
Jersey Budd smashed onto the British music scene with his first album “Wonderlands”, which included the single “She Came Back” featuring Tom Meighan from Kasabian and received huge radio airplay. Q Magazine called this album “a rollicking bar room rock in thrall to Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen”.
Leicester born Jersey is a friend and contemporary of many acclaimed British artists such as Kasabian, Miles Kane and The Rifles. Jersey and his band have toured extensively across the UK and Europe headlining his own shows and supporting artists including Kasabian, The Enemy, James Morrison, John Martyn, Amy MacDonald, The Bluetones and Turin Brakes.
Jersey has co-written with artists James Walsh from Starsailor, Rob Harvey from The Music, Paul Garred of The Kooks and James Barnett. He has worked alongside producers including Stan Klybert, Brendan Lynch and Jamie Ellis.
Jersey’s sound mixes true rock and roll with vintage soul with influences stretching far and wide and is setting he music scene alight making Jersey one of the British songwriters to watch.
