New Year, new moves.
As we shut the door on 2020 it’s the perfect time to make some cool changes, with a new and exclusive partnership with Dice.
Dice “partner with the best venues and promoters in the world to make the fan experience magical.”
We cannot wait to announce our 2021 live and live-streamed programme, ticketed exclusively with Dice.
Our Artist Learning Zooms Continue
Having artists get together in a very real way, sharing their struggles and helping with solutions has been a true highlight of 2020. We have definitely proved artists can be resourceful and equally successful with zero budget and that we can all help each other a great deal. So inspiring. So far our exclusive artist learning zooms have covered Social Media, DIY PR and last week 8 artists got in the zoom room to discuss live streaming. Twitch verified and livestream regular Daisy Chute talked about using livestream as an artist too our fabulous livestream co-promoter Max at Gotobeat talked us through the tech side. More to be announced.
We never say no to a fun live session and it was a pleasure to have artists join the brand new Stella TV channel, a collaboration between broadcast legend Mike Read and broadcast consultant Andrew Eborn. I’m told it was lots of fun!

Whilst our events/hospitality sector and gig venues are effectively closed for business indefinitely, Max and I wanted to do absolutely everything we could to help artists and musicians, so 100% of profits from our online concerts will go directly to support the artists.

We are so proud to invite you to an intimate, unplugged living room concert, hosted and supported by our friends Astor Hostels in aid of CALM. The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) is leading a movement against suicide, the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK and the cause of 18 deaths every day.
Supporting all groups of society at risk of potential suicide, CALM has a free and confidential chat and web line open 7 days a week.
Performing on the night - three unique and wonderful artists:
Growing up in a crooked old farmhouse in Northamptonshire with his Dad, Harry gained many influences. John Martyn, Bob Dylan, Damien Rice, Richard Thompson, Jose Gonzalez and Bon Iver to name but a few! it was due to having hundreds of gigs under his belt (as well as a few tough life lessons) where his song-writing and finger picking guitar style was honed.
Harry has recanted completed a European and UK tour in support of Marillion.
"His delicate honesty and turn of phrase make him stand well clear of the pack” - Frank Turner
Edinburgh-born, half-American, hyphen-loving Daisy Chute is a folk songstress and multi-instrumentalist with a particular penchant for the banjo. Formerly of Decca’s platinum-selling classical group All Angels, she is excited to be working on her début album of original songs with producer and songwriter Tim Baxter (Andy Burrows, Editors, Nick Mulvey, Jasmine Thompson). A regular in the London music scene and an award-winning singer and songwriter having just been awarded first place in the Coffee Music Project singer-songwriter competition, Daisy has been taught and mentored by rock royalty Sir Ray Davies, featured as a vocalist on Radiohead's latest album A Moon Shaped Pool, and even got the thumbs up from Sir Paul McCartney after a performance at the Royal Albert Hall. One of Paul Sexton's 'top music tips' for 2018, Daisy's music has been compared to Simon and Garfunkel and Joni Mitchell (BBC Radio Kent) and her voice has been described as
“Exquisitely delicious. Delicate, like a gossamer-winged creature made out of spun gold." Tony Moore (Soho Radio, The Bedford)
In late November 2016 Ed begun his ascent into the mystical world of the modern day music industry. With a Paulo Nutini/Rod Stewart rasp, intertwined with a whole lotta of energy, Ed caught the attention of hit record producer and songwriter Jamie Petrie. Ed has since recorded his own unique rendition of D'Ream's "Things Can Only Get Better" and recent single "Delicate Mind" was released through CALM in 2019.
As always Astor will be actively supporirtng through their charity breakfast donation collection during the week of the concert.
