Peter Jones

Peter Jones is a well-established jazz singer based in London. He gigs regularly at jazz clubs there and further afield, with appearances at Cork Jazz Festival and at a special Mark Murphy commemoration event in Denver, Colorado during 2018.

Vibration Black Finger

Lascelle Lascelles (AKA Lascelle Gordon) is the man behind Vibration Black Finger. As one of the house DJs at London’s hipper-than-hip Wag Club in the 1980s, he earned a reputation as an eclectic and adventurous musical spirit, before helping to found Acid Jazz pioneers The Brand New Heavies, staying with the band for five years.

Cleo Sol

Cleo Sol is a West London singer-songwriter who received the PRS grant for MOBO tour in 2012. After posting a few tracks onto her MySpace page in her late teens, veteran underground producer Davinche (Kano Ps & Qs) spotted the singer and asked her to collaborate. The partnership with Davinche led to tracks with Tinie Tempah on ‘Tears’, Wretch 32’s ‘Dancefloor’, Davinche’s ‘Hero’ and ‘Riding for Love’ alongside Bashy.
