Taking Off With Spitfire - Showcasing Local Talent from the South Holland area

Wild Horse are a young, exciting English band who’s recently released 2nd album “Songs about Last Night” has drawn comparisons with some of the UK’s very best exports from critics both sides of the pond.

Brothers Henry and Jack Baldwin share the lead vocal duties. Imagine Jagger sparring with Liam G and you’re getting close. Throw in some classic rock riffs a’ la Keef’ over Ed Barnes’s powerhouse drumming and you can start to imagine what Wild Horse are about.

But it’s not all bombast, there is subtlety and even beauty, with great backing vocals and considered song arrangement. You can hear influences from the like of The Arctic Monkeys, The Hives, Libertines and of course the Rolling Stones throughout their repertoire but they all still sound like Wild Horse!

Tom Bright & The Dynamite

Taking Off With Spitfire - Showcasing Local Talent from the South Holland area

Tom Bright & The Dynamite - a Berlin-born, Derbyshire-raised singer/songwriter who sounds like he smokes far too much and looks like he eats way too little.

A pub landlord between the ages of 18-23, Tom then went off to Australia where he wrote, performed and really launched himself as a musician. At the beginning of 2013, he landed back in London, armed only with a backpack and a guitar, and got cracking with recording his debut solo EP.

He now lives in East London, playing shows all over, and his debut release is expected in July 2013.

Leftover Bullets

The Hard Rockers from Thessaloniki have been presenting to us for 3,5 years now their proposal carrying with them dirt, vagrancy and wildness. Inspired by the music and the attitude of the hard n heavy decade 85-95 they shoot with their “Leftover Bullets” to kill in our decade.

The 5 member band came together when a wave of young people started leaving Greece. According to them “We were looking at our friends leaving one after another and us left behind. But we are bullets..”

Last summer they recorded their very first song “80’s Child” together with a lyric video which came to knowledge of Miltos Karatzas and his company FINAL TOUCH – THE LABEL. This lead to a 2 year contract.
