Casey Birks is a song-writer and musician from Manchester, who's been playing across the UK for over decade. His musical influences (Elbow, Neil Young, Julian Cope, etc...) and experience as a multi-instrumentalist all blend into a eclectic style of music, from rhythm heavy rock, to jazz and folk. Broody ballads give way to wit and wisdom in sometimes humorous, sometimes dark lyrics that reflect his life like a musical mirror.
Casey's debut album, "Lost For Words", is coming out at the start of January, and to mark the occasion he's brought together some incredibly talented folks for a special live performance. Expect lush strings, ripping guitar, and no shortage of tugging at your heart-strings.

Mr Novembre started writing songs in 2010, and in those 13 years he has honed his craft well. With influences including Tallest Man On Earth, Hiss Golden Messenger, Glen Hansard, and Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, his style can seem to change drastically from song to song, and not least because he sings in three different languages. His lyrics are intricate, often referential, and put together in a way that rewards repeat listens and analysis. Gentle introspection accompanied by soft guitar, gives way to thrashing chords and powerful singalong anthems that'll stick in your head for days.
Caitlin Gilligan was born and raised in Dumfries & Galloway. Now based in Liverpool, her songs still echo the wildness of her Scottish youth. Weaving age-old folk songs into sets of bare-boned and poetically-crafted originals, she demonstrates refreshing insight whilst simultaneously summoning the voices of times gone by. She draws much inspiration from folk giants such as Anne Briggs, Nick Drake and Leonard Cohen as well as traditional vocal music of Scotland, Ireland and America.
