The Jack Stafford Foundation: Jack Stafford is an Englishman who started out as a singer-songwriter and is now ready with his debut album with a full band – Exes – which will be released on Valentine's Day and is made up of bitter and sweet odes to his ex-girlfriends. The 2nd single Toyboy will be released on 31st January.

Absinthe: A British 3-piece based in Amsterdam but intent on world domination. The thing with a three piece band is that all three elements must combine to create one voice - there's no room for half measures. The live shows are legendary - full on from beginning to end they'll have you walking away at the end of the night needing more. Absinthe - lose yourself, abuse yourself.
