Marta Del Grandi
Italian-born Marta Del Grandi is an eclectic singer songwriter gathering influences from near and far to create a unique genre-splicing style, a jazz vocalist originally, now traveling her own unique and unchartered path. Signed to Fire Records, she released her debut album for the label ‘Until We Fossilize’ in November 2021. In the not-too-distant past, Marta studied Jazz Vocals at the Conservatorio Giuseppe Verdi in Milan and at the Royal Conservatory of Ghent. She visited China, then Nepal where she taught at the Kathmandu Jazz Conservatory, before returning to Italy where she unpacked the influences and inspirations she’d soaked up. Morricone-esque in structure – with a hint of David Lynch, her music is playful and evocative; she is a rare talent, ‘Until We Fossilize’ the first flourish of her eclectic art.

“Bucolic yet often emotionally complex, her songwriting – patching electronic synths against ambient elements with a touch of modern classical – seems to tap into areas beyond words.” – CLASH

Immaterial Possession
Conjuring a mysterious brew of folk, psychedelia, world music, and progressive rock, Immaterial Possession are a group from Athens, Georgia whose music takes listeners into a world all their own. Their sound is exotic without being forbidding, created within the framework of pop music while embracing a mindset that falls outside its boundaries, and generating a sense of joy even when it slips into a shadowy mood. Conjuring a homegrown brew of folk and psychedelia, with a wealth of two albums under their belt, their live show is not to be missed!
“Utterly fantastic” – Week In Pop
“Folk-laden and nomadic psych-pop that harks back somewhat to the hazy days of late ’60s/early ’70s commune music when everything was all earthy and hopeful for a better world.” – Norman Records

Bella Spinks
Singer-songwriter Bella Spinks’ debut album, ‘Homeostasis’, produced by Matt Ingram (Laura Marling, Lianne La Havas, Denai Moore) is released on Sublime Recordings. Showcasing her signature piano style and inventive vocals, she has drawn comparisons to Joni Mitchell, Kate Bush, Carole King and Regina Spektor.
