As an in-demand songwriter and acclaimed independent artist, Angel Snow’s road twisted and turned to get to this point. She wrote three songs on Alison Krauss’s Paper Airplane, as Nashville’s Music Row crowned her, “Nashville’s next stealth pop weapon.” Her 2012 self-titled debut spawned “These Days,” which notched 6 million-plus Spotify streams. Of her new sound, Angel says “(The) ambient style is something I’ve always been drawn to, but I didn’t know if I could pull it off myself. While making Magnetic, I realized that I could. That revelation was a game-changer for me. It’s a dream that finally came to fruition.” Support is provided by April Jai. April Jai is London's new up and coming country artist.Blending her love of pop and country, she has developed a voice of her own, drawing influence from artists such as Taylor Swift, Kacey Musgraves and The Civil Wars.

‘The Luck’ is the London-born brother and sister duo of Max & Esmay Luck. Their music is influenced by childhood heroes Fleetwood Mac, The Cranberries, Tom Petty and The Eagles. The band began touring the U.K. and Europe before setting off for the US to develop their sound in California, playing iconic venues such as ‘The Troubadour’ in LA. Paul Broucek, President of Music at Warner Brothers Pictures, was in the audience at one of their shows and shortly after approached to work with them to produce their debut album. Together in LA the album was recorded, collaborating with three-time Grammy Award-winning engineer/mixer Ed Cherney (The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt) and three-time Grammy Award winning musician/engineer/mixer Paul Hicks to mix the tracks. The Luck’s songs have been featured on U.K. television shows such as ‘Country File’ and ‘Hollyoaks’ as well as gaining radio play in the US and Europe. Their song ‘Muscles and Bones’, also won a first place prize in the Nashville-based International Songwriting Competition. The band are now back in London, hosting the California-inspired monthly Americana club night ‘Ventura Nights’ in Soho whilst preparing to release their debut album to the world. The Luck are playing various festivals this summer including Chagstock, Cambridge Folk Festival, CarFest South, Folk on the Dock in Liverpool and have been chosen by the AMA UK to perform on their stage at The Long Road in September. With over two million Spotify streams they are ready to hit the UK hard!

Over a career that spans more than a decade and a half and has won her a devoted worldwide fan base, Jess Klein—who possesses what Mojo magazine calls “one of those voices you want to crawl up close to the speakers to listen to” has pursued a remarkable creative evolution that’s seen her dig ever deeper for resonant emotional insights, while continuing to refine her eloquently melodic, effortlessly accessible songcraft. Jon Pareles of The New York Times calls her “a songwriter with a voice of unblinking tenacity…who finds parables in the everyday and also finds humanity behind the archetypal.” The Rochester, NY native began writing songs as a college student in Kingston, Jamaica, and is known for staking out brave lyrical and musical territory with such albums as Wishes Well Disguised (1998), Draw Them Near (2000), Strawberry Lover (2005), City Garden (2006), Bound to Love (2009), Behind A Veil (2012) and Learning Faith (2014) which Folk Radio UK calls “Unquestionably the finest album of her impressive career.” Jess spent eight years soaking up the live music culture of Austin, TX. Bootleg (2015) Jess’s live, full band album captures the dynamism of Jess onstage, backed by some of Austin’s top players. Jess was named a 2015 Finalist in the highly regarded Kerrville New Folk Competition. Following a move from Austin to the tiny but vibrant town of Hillsborough, North Carolina, Jess joined forces with Producer Mark Simonsen (The Old Ceremony, Weems/Gerrard Band, film scores: Elephant Sighs, Radiation Veterans and Rareified) and Engineer Thom Canova (Amy Ray, 4 Non-Blondes, Oranj Symphonette) at Studio M in Durham, North Carolina to record a new album entitled "Back to My Green". On this striking collection of ten new originals, Klein’s incisive lyrics address living in uncertain times and the resilience that carries us through. Songs like “New Thanksgiving Feast”, “Tougher than I Seem”, and “Kid” look through the lens of a world-traveler and granddaughter of Russian Jewish immigrants, to celebrate the human capacity for healing and redemption during dark times. Guest vocalists include Gaelynn Lea and Jonathan Byrd. Simonsen and Canova’s deft production calls on influences including Motown, Classic Rock, Tropicalia and 70's folk and creates a stirring backdrop to Klein’s passionate mezzo soprano on this timely and powerful album. Back to My Green will be released everywhere in early 2019.
