Nashville to Los Angeles, Atlanta to the UK and back – there is no boundary to Sonia Leigh’s musical reach. From her country upbringing to her rebellious city lifestyle, changes have always been a catalyst for her creativity. She has had past success writing songs for Zac Brown Band, touring across the world with Eric Church, but as an independent artist, she finds comfort in the idea of creating her own opportunity and refining her craft.
An Americana artist hailing from Co. Kildare, Megan O’Neill lived for a period in Nashville before moving to London. Her song ‘Don’t You’ has featured on the TV Show “Nashville” earlier this year. She released her debut EP Stories to Tell which was recorded at Mark Knopfler’s British Grove Studios with the legendary Guy Fletcher (Dire Straits, Roxy Music, Mark Knopfler) producing.
A powerful singer and songwriter, gifted with the talent to arouse the soul with his expressive and poignant lyrics, Sam, a native of Bangor County Down, recently returned from Nashville, where he performed at the Bluebird Café. Compared to Jeff Buckley, John Martyn, Bon Iver and Paolo Nutini, he is a perceptive writer and performer and a mesmerizing live performer.
