No King No Crown
No King. No Crown. is an Indie-Folk Project of Dresden based singer and songwriter René Ahlig. After traveling the world, he found comfort in writing folk-pop songs and released his first album "Heart To Escape" in 2012. Continually playing gigs and festivals across Germany and Europe, he published his second full-length "Without Yesterday" in 2016 which made it to the German Top30 Singer-Songwriter Charts on iTunes and "Newcomer of the week" at Ampya. For the lastest record "Smoke Signals" (February 2019) No King. No Crown. entered the studio as a full band and created a new Indie-Folk sound which got their roots in acoustic Singer-Songwriter music and influences from Electronica and Ambient.
‘Her debut single is a real head-turner, A trip-hoppy slice of pop-tronica, if
you will, it sounds like Grimes getting down and carefree with nature and bodes
very well for her future ascendancy.’ The Crack Magazine
A truly organic breath of fresh air - Broken Forest is the inventive work of writer, singer and producer Luise London. Since she was a young child, Luise has had a great passion for nature and its connection to our lives and minds. These and other heartfelt messages are delicately translated into Broken Forest’s music, with sweet vocals hanging over a mesmerising blend of Atmospheric Folk and Organic Electronica. The sometimes harsh and coldness of modern, urban life meets the sensibility and beauty of nature.
2018 saw an exciting year for Broken Forest following on from the debut EP release ‘Lost in Fairytales’, with shows across the UK and Festival appearances such as Boomtown Fair and Magical Festival. The new year is a continuation of this journey with a new release of the Single ‘Ghosts in the Dark’ on the 24th of May 2019!
Isobel is an award winning acoustic Singer-Songwriter originally from Salisbury, Wiltshire but now based in London, whose voice and songwriting has been compared to artists such as KT Tunstall and Bonnie Raitt. Isobel accompanies her singing with tuneful and percussive acoustic guitar, saxophone and bass, citing blues as her main musical influence. She also incorporates Folk, Country and Americana into her music which gives her songwriting an unusual – yet infectious – edge.
Craig Temple is a singer and songwriter from London, who has been gigging solidly internationally for 14 years. Primarily in the punk Band Moral Dilemma.
His music derives from various influences most notably the blues, folk, bluegrass and Americana, delivered with a gravely voice and soulful harmonica playing with lyrics ranging from radical politics, to heartbreak, and everything in between.
Craigs song “Whatever It Takes” has previously received heavy rotation on Radio 1 and has shared the stage alongside such acts as Chuck Ragan, Vic Rugerio, Joe Buck yourself , tv smith, Ledfoot and William Elliot Whitmore,.
