Daisy Kelly-Granger has been singing all her life. Blessed with a natural stage confidence, aged four she made all the parents at nursery cry after delivering a heart wrenching solo of ‘Away In A Manger’. She got very upset because she thought she’d done something awful.

The Times named her as the female artist to watch out for this year. Bridgette has been part of the OneTaste family since the beginnings up in the Tavistock room of The Bedford. What a musical journey she's been on in that time. Entering yet another incredible phase in her musical direction, come and see a set that you perhaps have never seen Bridgette play before (unless you saw her play the festival). Mind-blowing may be a word to describe it. Fresh of tour fronting Oi Va Voi, Bridgette is now concentrating on her solo material and coming to play with us on our birthday! 🙂
Gideon Conn is one of a current crop of emerging Mancunian songwriters and performers.
Alternative by nature, Gideon's shows are breath-taking from start to finish. With a cheeky smile he makes the audience jump for joy, sigh with delight then leave asking what they have just seen and and when can I hear it again?
Describable as folk-hiphop, Gideon's debut single 'I want you around' was made breakfast single of the week on 6Music and is a favourite of Huw Stevens on Radio 1 and Jon Kennedy on XFM.
Gideon and his band have won the hearts of many fans at gigs and festivals around the UK. Scroobius Pip saw Gideon at Glastonbury and was blown away – “The People of Britain may not know it yet, but Gideon Conn is a national treasure!”
