Josh McGovern’s song writing is an arresting blend of poetic lyricism and powerful musicality, daydreaming Americana and haunting folk sensibilities. The results are beautifully enticing songs of eerie intimacy as found in his two highly acclaimed singles ‘The Devil Below Me’ and ‘Love Left Lost’.
Having built up experience and support, he recently recorded his singles ‘Love Left Lost’ and ‘The Devil Below Me’ with Ben Thackeray, who has worked with the likes of Nick Cave and Patti Smith. Along with his band, McGovern recorded the tracks at Retreat Studios, where Nick Cave recorded the majority of his album Skeleton Tree, which he describes as “one of my favourite albums.”
Josh McGovern has received early strong support from BBC Introducing and critical acclaim from the likes of The Independent, who described him as “An accomplished, intriguing new talent”. He has sold out headline shows across London and his Brighton hometown, carving out a dedicated following of fans and critics alike, and he looks set to make even more of a statement throughout 2019.
Raised on folk and roots music before training as a classical singer, Martin Weston delivers his powerful yet intimate music with a warm baritone voice. He returns to London after two years in Brussels, where he sang in the bars, cafes and streets of Europe’s capital. Martin’s debut EP Fantastical Ecclesiastical showcased his ability to conjure absurd stories and bring to life colourful characters. His new material takes a more personal, introspective turn.
