    Named as one of RnR Magazines 'Ones to watch for 2022', emerging artist Jenny Colquitt encompasses a unique combination of Americana, indie and folk rock and pop.

She writes with soul, lyrical vulnerability and style to accompany her musicality both through keys and guitar.

    Jenny's debut album 'Something Beautiful' was released in November 2021. Described as “very much recommended, for her strong and expressive voice, impactful lyrics and winning melodies” by BBC Radio 2's Paul Sexton.

    RACHEL CROFT

    Rachel Croft @ Theater Posa, Lelystad

     

    Featured on prime time BBC 2 television, Rachel Croft is a London based alternative artist, whose voice was described as “truly exceptional” by BBC Introducing.

    Blending the cinematic and soulful, Rachel’s multi-octave range flows effortlessly from fierce power to deep and deadly soft. Her honest and varied self penned works have gained Rachel an impressive international fanbase, packing out venues across Europe on tours annually, and gracing the main stages of festivals including Wickham, Lindisfarne and Costa Del Folk Portugal since 2017.

    Rachel’s music has been synced on the BBC (Rebel Cheer Squad, 2022) and featured in Spotify editorial playlists such as Melancolia Indie and Indielandia. Her work has premiered in major publications including CMT.com, Louder Than War and Tom Robinson’s Fresh On The Net and on radio stations across the UK, US, Europe and Australia including BBC Radio 6.

    Following her liberating EP “Reap What You Sow” in 2021, which was described as “Powerhouse” by New Noise Magazine, Rachel’s new single Hurricane dropped in July 2022, and was premiered on CMT.com. An ominous fusion of indie rock attitude and bluesy Americana energy, the new track pairs dark, rootsy swagger with Croft’s thunder-and-lightning vocals.

     

     

    This potent and dark female forward repertoire, combined with Rachel’s formidable stage presence is one performance not to be missed.

    Genre-bending artist Rachel Croft has proven that you don’t need a label giant backing your craft in today’s climate to make waves in the music industry

    **FULL** REB FOUNTAIN with full band | JASMINE RODGERS

    Guest List Full | Doors 18:45 | Live 19:15 | Finish 10:45

     

    REB FOUNTAIN w BAND | Saturday 13 May 2023 |

    In October 2021, Reb Fountain released IRIS, her sophomore album via Flying Nun Records, to critical acclaim. Martin Aston from MOJO magazine called Reb, New Zealand’s next alt-folk sensation” and Karl Pushmann, VIVA New Zealand Herald, states, “From the moment you press play, IRIS envelops you.” 

    Winner of the 2021 Taite Music Prize and the Aotearoa Music Award for Best Country Music Album and APRA Best Song in 2018, songwriter Reb Fountain is a consummate recording artist and performer: stunning audiences with her music and artistry alike.  A perfect extension of her 2020 self-titled album, IRIS elevates Reb Fountain’s music to new heights. Here, Reb effortlessly combines pop elements with her trademark noir folk-punk sound, weaving authentic and anthemic tunes that create an instant and indelible impression.

    “Reb Fountain is one of those artists that you don’t know but need to see.” Scenestr, 2022

    Reb was born in San Francisco and emmigrated with her family from North America to Lyttelton — the quiet port town out of Christchurch that’s been fundamental to New Zealand’s alt-folk scene, raising artists like Marlon Williams, Aldous Harding, and Delaney Davidson.

    Throughout 2020, Reb and her all-star band astounded audiences around the country on her sold out album release tour, joined Crowded House on their 13 date, ‘To The Island Tour’, and honoured Nick Cave at the sold out Auckland Town Hall show, ‘The Boy Next Door’.

    Reb Fountain and band made their Australian debut at Womadelaide 2022. They have just completed a nationwide tour of New Zealand performing to sold out audiences in Aotearoa’s most iconic theatres to critical acclaim.

    “Shaman-like, Fountain moves across the stage and through the various stages of herself to deliver these songs, devotionals. She and band are not just world class performers, they might in fact be world-beaters.” Simon Sweetman, 2022

    “I watched Reb Fountain last Saturday, prowling across the stage like Patti Smith and Cat Power one- minute, Nick Cave living his best life the next. Reb was a revelation. I could have watched that show on any stage in the world – and Reb
    would have deserved to be there.” Stuff, 2022

    “At first, I thought I was listening to a cross between Patti Smith and Nick Cave but these comparisons quickly fall away as Reb is a true original.” Hifiway, 2022

    “Unleashed and unafraid, Reb Fountain is a revelation”  Sunday Star Times

    “Reb Fountain possesses a crystalline vocal that’s as stunning as it is assured.” American Songwriter

     

     

    JASMINE RODGERS

     

    SOLO ARTIST AND FRONTWOMAN TO BOA (UK)

    Jasmine Rodgers is a London born musician of mixed parentage and says this has nurtured a deep love of many different genres. Her solo shows feature her complex guitar picking styles and intricate vocals, effortlessly veering from folk to rock music, delivered with warmth and intimacy.

     

    Jasmine has a solid fanbase in the Japanese anime world thanks to her work as frontwoman to British rock band Boa, who wrote and performed the soundtrack to award winning anime Lain Serial Xperiments.

     

    Jasmine has since released her eponymous EP and album Blood Red Sun and has recorded with Scott Matthews, Danny Keane, Jenny Sturgeon, John Hogg and many others.

    ANNIE KEATING full band show | ABI MOORE

    GUEST LIST FULL | Doors 18:45 | Live 19:15 | Finish 22:30

    ANNIE KEATING | Saturday 02 September 2023 | Full band show | Superb Americana songwriter comparisons to Lucinda Williams 'her talent and ability are clearly profound' No Depression.

     

    “A MUST SEE” – Bob Harris (Whispering Bob, BBC Radio Host)
     
    “Unbridled, raucous ... beautiful. Get yourselves along to a show. You’ll love it!” – At The Barrier
     
    “Tremendous... Razor sharp rockabilly, sweet country and swampy blues, the band at full tilt. 
    Keating maintains her excellent standard with a lovelorn slice of Americana on HARD FROST. Captivating” – Americana UK
     
    “Keating is the epitome of what it means to be a truly successful songwriter” –  American Songwriter

    “A hard frost is where both the air and the ground freeze, one in which only the sturdiest of plants can survive. With this outstanding album, Keating again proves herself a true enduring perennial in her chosen field.” – Folk Radio UK 

    Critics are already raving about “Hard Frost,” calling it an absolute triumph and a work of beauty. From the haunting and extraordinary melodies to the impeccable storytelling, this album showcases Keating at her best.”  -– The Broken Spine

     

    ABI MOORE | Saturday 02 September 2023 | It's been 9 years since Abi’s last, critically-acclaimed studio album "Amoeba & Stone" and she's back with a brand new sound.
    “Impactful, gritty, and above all, brimming with conviction. Abi's stripped back, stomp and holler sound instantly took us to KT Tunstall, while her styling and rootsy, distorted Americana guitar twangs have a delicious White Stripes flavour."
