Having first sung professionally with Basement Jaxx, Milly Blue‘s musical journey has taken her worldwide, from New York to Paris, Southport to Hull. Armed with a ukulele, loop pedal and a voice to tempt ships to the rocks, she weaves stories of love and loss, horrifying monsters, museum curators and the most deathly revenge. Soulfully jazzy with a folky lilt, let her sound surround you.
Pino Yeats (aka Pepe Belmonte) is an acoustic folk-blues singer/ songwriter currently residing in London. He is known for playing personal arrangements of traditional blues songs including renditions of old favourites such as: Ragged and Dirty, John Henry and Make Me Down A Pallet. Having grown up in rural south west Ireland, its
not surprising to find a taste of Irish folk music in his set too. As much as these old blues and folk songs have inspired him, Pino Yeats is also a sensitive songwriter with a formidable back catalogue. He has a strong sense of imagery, catchy melodies and a grand grasp of rhythm and rhyme. His bluesy guitar style and distinctive vocal and harmonica work have led him to collaborate with a number of musicians, artistic groups and bands. His Debut album The Hermit’s Waltz is available and a special edition home/hand-made 6 song analogue EP: 4-Track Analogue Recordings is available at gigs.
Natasha Moskovici started writing and performing poetry whilst living on a beach in Thailand and has now been performing in London for the past year. She’s still waiting to find out what she’s going to be when she grows up!
MC and poet Jack Dean was born in Tooting, raised in the southwest UK and likes to wander all over the place telling stories of love, loneliness, nostalgia and midget porn. He has toured slams, theatres and festivals across the country and holds highest Pac-Man score of anyone he knows.
