Dan Raza is one of the mainstays on the London singer-songwriter and folk roots scene. He has been praised by artists such as Chris Farlowe, Slaid Cleaves, Mary Gauthier and Jackie Oates and had a song included on Neil Young’s ‘Living With War’ website.  His distinctive approach has won him a following across the UK and abroad as he has taken his songs on the road performing solo and opening for Joan Armatrading, Badly Drawn Boy, Alejandro Escovedo, Cara Dillon and The Sadies, amongst others.  Of mixed Indian and British origin, Dan grew up in the Home Counties and moved to London in his late teens where he has since been based.  Dan’s eponymous debut album was produced by Charlie Hart (Ronnie Lane, Ian Dury, Eric Clapton, Mose Allison).  The self-produced follow up, ‘Two’, was released in 2017 and features his band, The Shrouds, as well as appearances from Geraint Watkins (Van Morrison, Paul McCartney), BJ Cole (Dolly Parton, Martin Simpson), Steve Simpson (Eric Bibb, Ronnie Lane), Frank Mead (Albert King, Eric Clapton) and Mosi Conde (Mory Kante, Salif Keita).

Master Lee Shing was born in 1923 in Hoxan in Southern China.  Lee Shing moved to Hong Kong where he met and became friends with two Wing Chun experts, Lok Yiu and Jiu Wan. They were two of the four leading practitioners of Wing Chun in Hong Kong who became known in Wing Chun circles as the “Four Kings of Wing Chun”. The other two were Leung Sheung and Tsui Shan Tin. It was not long before an exchange of styles took place between Lee Shing, Lok Yiu and later Jiu Wan.  He was the European and UK president of the Yip Man Martial Arts Association, and founder of the International Lee Shing Wing Chun Martial Arts Association.

NICOLAH is a Cumbrian singer songwriter based in London. Fresh from performing in play, Section 28 & the Queer State directed by Kay Adshead at the Alexander Palace she has just released her new single, Out of the Pie.  Her music is a sum of fresh life experiences about faith, sexuality, culture… A unique and empathic world view. Built on a foundation of classic songwriting, it blends pop sensibilities with an indie spirit. She shares similarities with early Katy Perry and her Christian pop roots, the sweet strum & vocals of Joni Mitchell, and the stadium pumping energy of Coldplay’s anthemic choruses. In the summer of 2018 she won the Open Category - Mayor of London GIGS Competition  chosen by Judges Newton Faulkner, Lauren Churchman (BBC6music), Fuzz Chaudhrey (BBC Radio 1), Swarzy Macaly (KISS FM) & James Brister(ICMP). After playing live for literally millions on London’s busy underground platforms, her first single Flow won the 2016 Mayor of London GIGS Songwriting Prize sponsored by PRS for Music taking her to play Glastonbury 2017alongside Everything Everything, Naughty Boy & Mullally. Since then she's received support & multiple airplay from BBC introducing’s Tom Salmon and in August 2018 recorded a live session.  Previous release Waiting on You invited listeners to be introspective: To see the power and completeness of themselves. It was featured on Hoxton Radio show Get in Her Ears, Spotify playlist Talk about pop music and the music video was premiered by blog, She Makes Music.
