Anne-Marie
Anne-Marie doesn't do anything by halves. Ever since she was two years old and joined her local performing arts school in Essex, she's wanted to excel at whatever she puts her mind to. Childhood roles in West End productions of 'Les Misérables' and 'Whistle Down the Wind' proved she had a gift for singing and acting. She started doing karate in her teens, and won three international championships by the age of 17. But music has always been her passion and after touring the world with Rudimental and cementing her place in pop history with 'Rockabye' - the Clean Bandit which became the longest-running UK No.1 in 22 years - she's ready to excel yet again and her debut album, 'Speak Your Mind', sounds like one of 2018's defining pop records.

Anne-Marie has been writing the album for five years, and whittled down the finished article from nearly 1,000 songs. Getting the track-list spot-on was incredibly important to her. "I've always wanted to have an album that makes sense from start to finish, rather than an album that's just a load of random hits put together," she explains. "I want people to know about me from every angle. I want people who listen to this album to be able to figure out who I am as a person, not just as a singer."

Goody Grace
What happens when a kid from a small town comes of age in the Internet era and is influenced by Bob Dylan and Morrissey as much as he is by Wiz Khalifa and Gucci Mane? You get Goody Grace. He plays his six-string and sings with emotion and raps melodically about being a kid with a dream. He has been mentored by music guru Cisco Adler since the age of 16 after contacting him via Twitter. Since then, countless hours writing for himself and others and daily recording sessions have helped shape this natural talent into a well rounded artist with a point of view and a voice waiting to be heard.
