Anna Howie tells upbeat stories of love and loss and friendship through her own brand of Americana meets London. Her recent Ep  'An Idiots Guide to Love' was recorded in Nashville and went to number 5 in the Uk Country Album Chart. 

'Anna's voice is the perfect foil for her lyrics, blending a light sweetness with a bit of gravel. Think somewhere between the darker tones of Roseanne Cash and the airiness of early Joni Mitchell.'  
Fatea Magazine 

‘A Beguiling combination of intelligent songwriting and engaging performance’ 
Richard Leader host of Leader’s American Pie

'Anna is able to tackle weighty topics with her light, lyricists hand in a way that makes them easily accessible'

An extremely accomplished songwriter and performer with lush vocals and a gorgeous rich sound

The Charlie Rivers Band (duo)

One time solo singer/songwriter Charlie Rivers has witnessed a truly organic growth in his music which has slowly but surely taken on a full band sound, spurred on by Steve McCormack (guitar), Steve Bassett (bass) and Ash Rushman (drums). In the space of only 16 months, The Charlie Rivers Band has morphed from the 'hear-a-pin-drop' sounds of one man and his guitar, to an uncompromising full band musical experience. 2009 saw the guys play at the "Busking Cancer" launch event alongside "Madness," and attained duo slots at Hyde Park and Wireless festival. Last year the band launched their much anticipated debut album 'Tender Chaos,' playing a host of sell out shows both in the UK and abroad including a storming headline set at the the Local & Live Music festival. Their single "Crazy" received a great deal of local radio play and recent support sets have included Newton Faulkner, Matt Berry and Toploader. The band are currently working on their follow up album, having previewed some of their new material throughout the course of 2011, set for a release in early 2012.
