Young Apollo

Young Apollo is a 4 piece Indie rock band from Tunbridge Wells. We take great inspiration from bands such as Foals and The 1975, intertwining each of our personal musical creativity in order to create unique sounds that appeal to a wide audience.

We all attended the same primary school and were playing the instruments we continue to play today; we were out of contact for 5 years before we all met up again with one thing in mind - to create some great music and entertain people again (hopefully not just our parents this time).

James & Grace Carroll

This brother and sister duo found their passion for music and storytelling through exposure to artists like Bob Dylan, Nick Drake and Van Morrison from a young age. James first picked up a guitar aged 10 and, as well as playing violin, Grace followed suit not long after.

In his younger years James fronted the band Cannon Woods, a folk/rock act that featured at local festivals and headlined shows at St Mary’s Church in Ashford. While writing and working on songs for the band, Grace would sing certain harmony lines and help to improve James’ material. They soon realised that the close harmony singing and the combined power of these wordsmiths could become a killer combination. Some songs they write together, others they bring to the table, but the authenticity of this act cannot be denied.

The songs like Atlantis use fairy tales to parallel modern day love songs, while others like July directly express the passionate anger of love. Other influences include Johnny Flynn, Fela Kuti, John Martyn, Edward Thomas and S.T Coleridge.

James says of their music: ‘We want people to listen to the songs and relate to the stories we tell; try and apply them to their lives rather than ours. After all, who’s to say any of them have any relevance to us?’

The Tringham Sisters

The Tringham sisters came to life in a small house in South London where we were all born. We later moved to the Kent, with our brother where we grew up. We have always loved singing together and were encouraged to do so from a young age at every birthday, wedding and christmas party we attend, by our ever supportive and most loyal fans to date, our family. We love a bit of everything, from UK top 40 to Elvis Presley and will sing anything that sounds good with a three part harmony. We finally decided to venture out into the public gaze this year and are hoping that you enjoy hearing our songs, as much as we enjoy singing them.
