Sherika Sherard

Prepare to be challenged and positively moved as you experience the infectious creativity of Sherika Sherard. With a voice like velvet and a great stage presence, Sherika never fails to warm the hearts of her listeners. Featured on Spike Lee’s Netflix series “She’s Gotta Have It”, the singer was also asked by Seal to open for him on his tour.

Vincent Burke

 “The Wonderful Vincent Burke…it jumps out of the speakers for sheer quality and sincerity’’ Tom Robinson BBC 6Music.

‘‘You think how come everyone hasn’t heard this?  Fantastic!” Max Reinhardt BBC Radio3

He’s back from playing another solo set at Latitude and now has the exciting added ingredients of Hana on violin, Paul on double-bass, and Jawad on percussion.

Recent triumphs include a fair bit of radio airplay on Radio 3’s Late Junction, and BBC6 Music; and finding a vegetarian sausage at the back of the fridge.

The debut Album ‘Over here in the Trees’ came out this year on Bandcamp and shook the Earth to its very foundations, while Vincent’s feet may be in the gutter his soul rides tempestuously on the stars.

Bity Booker

Bity Booker is a folk singer and songwriter based in London. Her songs are mostly voice and classical guitar with a few whimsical touches such as bells, musical saw, and sparrow sounds, but the effect is mystical, mainly due to Bity’s precise, hypnotic fingerpicking style and elastic voice.

Bity grew up in the Italian countryside in a house with many animals including ‘Dodo’ the crow, ‘Freddy’ the fox, and ‘Willy’ the hedgehog. This strong connection with nature has had a peculiar influence in her songwriting.

Her music brings subtle strains of the 1960s psychedelic magic and genuine and original storytelling. Be prepared to delve deep into Bity Booker’s musical world and listen to fantastic stories, each song a character with a timeless personality and melody.
