With words and music to live by, the twenty-something singer/songwriter is well sculpted. Real, true and humble, yet admirably confident, the traits resonate in her music. With pop melody sensibility, Jillian takes artistic liberty with her lyrics, but they’re as flat-out and straightforward “honest” as they come. Her new recording project places Jillian’s life under a magnifying glass to reveal unbound, themes of regret, nostalgia, heartache and frolic. Featuring song titles like “Hate Me,” “Reasons”, “God Bless This Mess”” the emotionally-weighted album (titled HONESTLY) spotlights “less is more” tracks that clearly demonstrate a comfortable intimacy to unveil Jillian Jacqueline’s identity—undisguised.
Following up their fantastic UK debut at C2C this year – this rising country music trio, comprises sisters Emma (vocals/mandolin) and Maddie (vocals) Salute together with guitarist and long-time friend Dawson Anderson (vocals/guitar). They have already amassed a sizeable and loyal fan base thanks to their immaculate harmonies and infectious, youthful energy. With talent far beyond their teenage years, Temecula Road has an impressive online following with their series of song covers. A recent mashup video of the trio singing portions of 2016’s top 20 country songs in a mere 3 minutes garnered them over 7 million views online and 84,000 shares on Facebook.
Performing in the UK for the first time – Levi Hummon came on our radar after he released his first self-titled EP in 2016 with the Big Machine Label Group, co-writing four of the EP’s five songs, including “Guts and Glory”. He has collaborated with rock legend Steven Tyler, co-writing his international No. 1 song, “Red, White and You.” Levi released his current single, “Don’t Waste The Night,” via Iconic Records and has been featured on Rolling Stone Country’s Artists You Need to Know.
A young band, in every sense, The Adelaides hark back to the old time Country traditions of talent, truth and integrity. A truly exciting live act, the three girls’ blend of self-penned originals, leavened with a couple of well-chosen covers.
Abi Phillips won her Hollyoaks role by writing a song called ‘Missing You’ which was broadcast during one of her storylines. Paris Georgia and Alicia Albanese are also both experienced performers and writers who bring the band both passion and incredible vocal talent; and this combination is a magical blend.
