Aaric Snook

For the last 10 years, I have been writing and performing my own songs and instrumental pieces. I have performed numerous gigs at various venues as well as several small festivals. Over the last three years I have been focused on my studies at university and honing my art. I have and will be playing charity gigs to raise awareness for different charity and disaster relief campaigns. I am inspired by a wide range of influences, including  soul, jazz, folk, rock and modern pop music. My main influences at this time are Jack Johnson, Ben Howard and Bombay Bicycle Club. 

The songs I write revolve around my relationships with the people around me, experiences that I have had and using those experiences to embellish a narrative in song. I find inspiration in experience and through arts and literature. Sometimes I think that the music says enough without the need for lyric, so I write instrumental pieces alongside songs.

In the next six months I will continue to write songs as well as develop songs I already have in my repertoire and release them. Over this same period I am looking forward to playing more gigs and developing various projects.

Biddle

I’m Molly Walford A.K.A Biddle, a 14 year old singer songwriter from Tunbridge Wells. I write indie/pop style acoustic music on a ukulele and I am also learning basics on guitar and piano. I got my first ukulele in January of 2018 and from there I have taught myself how to play from online tutorials. I wanted to start learning the instrument after listening to the artists Dodie and Grace Vanderwaal who also write amazing originals on the ukulele, they are still big inspirations of mine to this day. After the loss of my dad mid 2017, my mental health issues began to develop. It is those that inspire many of my songs as I enjoy writing about emotions and getting across the message that other people in the same boat aren’t alone. Over the short time I have seriously taken up music I would have to say that two of my biggest achievements are playing the Tunbridge Wells Forum and raising just under £300 for Cancer Research in memory of my dad from a song I wrote him for Fathers Day. In the future I would love to be able to play a festival and it would be the dream to support a well known artist that has inspired me and my music.
