Amazing Things is yet another genre-bending masterpiece with electro, rock, pop, metal and more all wrapped up in their own unique blend, bringing to mind the likes of Deftones, Beastie Boys and Linkin Park amongst others… but simultaneously sounding like nobody else on earth.

10-Nov-21 Rescue Rooms

Breakthrough artist of 2021 and Ivor Novello Rising Star nominee Holly Humberstone will be heading out on her biggest headline tour to date ahead of the release of her highly anticipated second EP The Walls Are Way Too Thin, set to be released on 5 November on Polydor/Darkroom/Interscope. Holly’s second EP follows her critically acclaimed debut Falling Asleep At The Wheel, which marked the first chapter in the story of a new global talent.

SELF ESTEEM
25-Nov-21 Metronome Nottingham

As Self Esteem, Rebecca Taylor has shaken off the shackles of her indie band past to become the unapologetic pop star she always wanted to be. With her statement debut album “Compliments Please” she gave voice to the feelings of insecurity and misogyny-induced frustration that many of us face every day, emboldening a whole new audience with powerful, truth-telling lyricism that speaks to her love of rhythmic noughties pop and RnB. Self Esteem proves that we can all grow from what we go through, but that life is far too short not to embrace yourself in your most honest of forms – no apologies necessary.

RUSSELL WATSON

25-Nov-21 Nottingham Royal Concert Hall 

Russell has overcome many things in his life maintaining a dignity few could rival when struck by not one, but two brain tumours and bouncing back in better voice than before. Warmly referred to as ‘The People’s Tenor’, Russell’s journey took him from a Salford estate to the world’s most prestigious concert halls, becoming the best-selling male classical artist of all time. The tour will celebrate over 20 years since his debut album ‘The Voice’ was released.

THE CADILLAC THREE
5-Dec-21 Rock City

The Cadillac Three are touring the UK this Autumn celebrating their 10 year anniversary of being a band. They were recently nominated for Group of the Year at the ACM Awards, released their fifth studio album Tabasco and Sweet Tea last October, seeing the trio inject some funk into their trademark southern rock sound. It was the surprise follow-up to the critically acclaimed Country Fuzz, which arrived just eight months earlier.

Known across the globe for their unpredictable concerts, TC3 found themselves in new territory as the pandemic halted touring in March 2020. Their fans never wavered in their support, purchasing exclusive ‘crew’ merchandise; donating to TC3’s virtual food drive; and highlighting local venues and other artists through their Country Fuzz Presents livestream.

VERSATILE

Among the current crop of rising Irish rap stars, Versatile have proven to be one of most resilient and loved acts in the Irish music industry. With the help of a cult-like following of fans, we’ve seen Versatile make Irish music history, headlining the 2019 Longitude Festival to a 40,000 strong crowd, followed by a sold-out headline at the Three Arena Dublin, cementing themselves as Ireland’s biggest Hip Hop group.

ENTER SHIKARI

The last decade has seen Enter Shikari increase their stature year on year, a rare career story which has taken them to 4 Top 10 albums, millions of streams, huge sell out world tours (most recently in Russia and two American), as well as multiple awards, crowned Best British Band by Rocksound, with Best Album from Kerrang! for ‘The Spark’ at 2018’s Awards.

Enter Shikari are one of the UK’s truly great British bands, almost uniquely the same four friends that started Enter Shikari at school,16 years later still united by a shared vision.
