Erawan (Slot 1)

 

She's been on our radar for a few years now so we're really chuffed London based folk pop singer and songwriter Hattie Marsh aka Erawan will be joining us to open this summer's sessions.

Hattie has played several Sofar Sounds, appeared at Glastonbury, has a commanding stage presence with a voice of such emotional intensity and depth that she will soon reel you into her world and have you spellbound.  Make sure you arrive in good time to see this exciting artist perform on our intimate stage.

Hearing Aid Beige (Slot 2)

 

We've been stalking Totnes band Hearing Aid Beige for many years now so are delighted to get them on this summer's line up!

Hearing Aid Beige is a song writing partnership between Simon Hampshire and Tommy Williams. We love their dreamy vocals and layered milky guitar sounds which combine elements of Pink Floyd with a Brian Wilson-esque melodies and Mac DeMarco inspired guitar hooks. It all results in songs that are kaleidoscopic, easy to listen, fun and relaxing… all at the same time.

Cavemouth (Slot 3) 

 

Back for a second outing at the Fringe are local 4 piece outfit Cavemouth.

Their unique feral brand of music described as Swamp Funk: a fabulously gritty original sound, blending blues, funk and hip-hop with African-influenced tuneage and mind-altering lyrics. 

"Guaranteed to get you up and out of your seat and sweating, Cavemouth are the aural equivalent to a night on a stairmaster, drinking Jack Daniels through a pair of fishnet tights."

Bryde (Slot 4)

Feral Guitar, Torn-from-the-chest lyrics...sensational"  The Sunday Times 

 

We are dead chuffed to have Welsh-born, London-based Bryde and her band back down to bring the opening night at the Fringe to a finale with a crescendo of energy! 

 

Her music performances are a truly visceral experience swinging from fragile to fierce in equal measures. Amped up guitar riffs, punchy baselines and driving beats entwined around her highly distinctive voice which ‘bends but does not break’. Bryde’s music deals with human psychology and the darker side of broken relationships swaying from tender and delicate, to tough and unforgiving. Bryde will be playing songs from last year’s album 'The Volume of Things.'

 

“There is so much beauty in Sarah’s voice: the huskiness of Gemma Hayes, lightness of Laura Marling and sensitivity of Jeff Buckley — beauty that is hard to define.” - Fresh on the Net
