Un-convention continues into the evening with a live showcase, featuring…
Synonymous with glamorous, pulsating anthems, York trio King No-One are known far and wide for their unique brand of alt-indie/pop. The outfit have performed high profile festival sets at Reading & Leeds, Truck Festival (Main Stage), TRNSMT & more. Huge live plans are in place for 2021/2022 already, including their 18+ date UK Tour, European dates and UK/EU festivals. The band recently completed the first UK run of the tour, performing notable Sold Out headline shows at the O2 Islington (LONDON), O2 Academy2 (SHEFFIELD), Brudenell (LEEDS) & King Tuts Wah Wah Hut (GLASGOW) w/ a second landmark headline at the O2 Ritz (MANCHESTER). The trio are a notorious live force to be reckoned with, and heading into their most exciting, boldest phase yet sonically and aesthetically.
With a truly global following, the swagger infused 3-piece have had both much recent & historic support from Spotify, consistently sitting on 70k+ Monthly Listeners, and garnering regular inclusion on New Music Friday (International), The Indie List (x6), Transistor, Modern Rock, peach & many more in their 5 years since formation. Apple Music, Deezer & Tidal have also playlisted KNO on past/recent releases.
They’ve seen press & radio coverage in abundance, w/ DIY, GIGWISE, Louder Than War, Wonderland, tmrw Magazine, Radio 1, Radio 6, Amazing Radio, Radio X, BBC Introducing & more supporting the band numerous times across their back catalogue.
Since their debut in 2018, Big Society has made a name for themselves as masters of mid-tempo indie rock. In 2019, the quartet played Live at Leeds, The Great Escape, Hit The North, and British Summer Time Festival where they supported Bob Dylan and Neil Young in Hyde Park. To add to their list of accomplishments, DIY Magazine called their track “17” a “gorgeous melting together of sleazy riffs lathered in distortion and something altogether more tender,” and Shell Zenner from BBC’s Introducing added Big Society to her “Ones to Watch in 2020” list.
A talk all night, tales for days, brutally honest songwriter and storyteller, Morgan Harper-Jones has been perfecting her craft and performing across the north west of England for a few years; now she is stepping into focus and introducing herself to the wider world. She has drawn praise from a slew of radio stations including BBC 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne & Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, BBC Introducing in Manchester, The Selector/BBC 1Xtra’s Jamz Supernova.
With echoes of Cat Power, Joni Mitchell and Bon Iver heard throughout her music, while still retaining her own very uniquely honed sound, Harper-Jones possesses a voice to stop you in your tracks.
