Mixing the personal with the political, Gavin Osborn has spent fifteen years entertaining audiences across the UK, Europe and Australia with his deft lyricism, evocative heartwarming storytelling and quick wit. Familiar to BBC Radio 4 and 6Music listeners – and from his tours with the likes of Grace Petrie and MJ Hibbett – Gavin has so far released five acclaimed solo albums. The Observer called his last album (Echo Bridge) “one of the year’s most relatable releases, a record about being frustrated, angry, bewildered and aware of the utter ridiculousness of a world that has moved past your point of understanding”.
In the midst of the utter madness that is 2020, he also released a charity single ‘Born In The NHS’, which clocked up nearly half a million views after being featured on Russell Howard’s Sky One show, Home Time.
“Simultaneously hilarious and heart-rending songs” – Independent Weekly
Lim Orion paints worlds with the barest materials. Her sound is unhurried, spectral and intimate, and her songs are composed as a series of heartfelt trances; deliberately formless and rhythmic as the sea! Flourishes of sun-charmed electric guitar sprawl out sparsely, punctuated by the frank but tender character of Lim’s vocal. Listen closely and you’ll hear tales of vain kings, mirror monsters and lonely people transforming into churches. Lim is an explorer of language and loves to play with where the literal and fantasy overlap to try to describe the vastness of emotion. Her videos and live performance often include her own artwork and elements of dance.
