Nicolas and the Saints are launching their long-awaited album 'Goodbye to Brighton'.

In this hometown return, the band will play the record in full. Expect volleys of rap over infinite feedback delay, smokey bar ballads and half-time punk. A sprawling diaspora of jazz, blues, hip-hop and rock set to literary lyrics and a Waitsian growl, occasionally softened to a tone described as "molasses over hot coals" (1BrightonFM).

LAISH
β€œOne of the best songwriters of his generation inside and outside of British borders.” 7.5/10 – Ondarock

Honest, self-reflective songs and stunning live performances, sung with a distinctive, plaintive tenor. Gentle fingerpicked acoustic ballads and robust art rock jams about relationships failed and survived. 

Laish's latest album - Pendulum Swing - came out last year on respected French label Talitres.

MARA SIMPSON
"A perfectly balanced blend of folk, blues and Americana" - Line of Best Fit

She's captivated audiences around the world with her soulful melodies, rich lyricism, unassuming charm and wicked laugh. With a style of writing equally as eclectic as her background in Kenya, Berlin, New Zealand and Brighotn, Mara delivers an old soul voice with a unique perspective.

BRIDIE FLORENCE
"A futuristic bubble of simplistic songwriting and slowing vocals... heart-wrenching for listeners... addicted to her sweet sound" - The Music Manual

With the hum of Joni Mitchell and the buzz of electric Dylan, Bridie's distinctive voice was developed during a childhood in Bahrain, Kenya and the UAE before finally settling in Brighton. Her songs are brooding and soulful with a subtlety that belies her age.
