Michael P Cullen

A man in a suit, an old semi-acoustic guitar and a voice like sandpaper dipped in honey. Michael P Cullen tells stories of longing and regret in a unique and textured baritone with echoes of American mid-century pulp writers, 60s Vegas cabaret and Southern Gothic Americana.

He has often been compared to Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits and Nick Cave but his unique blend of Noir, New Wave, Stax and Northern Soul ultimately defies comparison.

FAY

Swiss born, independent vocalist and songwriter FAY (born Nour Alessandra Fahmy), has an innovative approach to Pop and R&B. She started singing and experimenting with music from a young age, quickly becoming clear that this is the path for her. Moving from Switzerland, to Amman in Jordan and finally to London has majorly affected the influence and style of music that she creates.

Having been releasing music through Soundcloud for the past few years, she has a repertoire of tracks that appeal to both the masses and niche audiences. However, it wasn’t until she graduated from university in 2017 that FAY released her first EP, “Purple”, collaborating with London based producers and artists with her music falling under what we would expect from the likes of Ariana Grande and Selena Gomez to alternative artists like Banks or Lorde – but does so in a way that sets her apart from the rest.

DENM 

In 2015, DENM was no more than a bedroom producer playing in a band, touring North America, and producing some songs on the side in his spare time.  “My solo project basically started out as something to do when I was bored on tour” shares DENM. “We would all have our computers out, making our own music for fun on the road. I remember making this random dance song in the back row of a sprinter and thought it sounded pretty cool. I played it for a few friends and label people, and when they demanded to hear more, I took it to heart.”

That dance song ultimately became “Lit,” which Pop Crush called an “irresistible debut single” and a “garage house-y ode to hedonism and the rush of infatuation.” Within a month of its release, “Lit” racked up a million streams and landed in the Top 10 on both Spotify’s and Hype Machine’s Viral and New Hot Electronic Charts.
