Marmalade Moonshine are a Rock & Roll band originating from Portsmouth that are a force against commercial pop music with their Britpop influenced music.  Their music is all original and heavily inspired by sounds from Oasis, Arctic Monkeys and The Beatles. Although not a fan of the phrase they’re often labelled as “Indie Rock”, but in their own words just think “Liam Gallagher style!”

Richard Morris is a nomadic surf instructor who grew up learning to surf and play guitar on the Isle of Wight. His rugged blend of gritty rock and soulful pop hooks form the addictive sound he is known for. His 2017 ‘Stay Alive’ EP propelled him into the limelight and he was crowned “BBC Introducing Artist of the week” shortly followed by “Best Unsigned Male” in the 2017 Best of British Unsigned Music Awards. His music has been aired on all 40 BBC radio stations and his healthy south-coast fan base have championed his success selling out venues across the UK. Appearing at major festivals and venues across the UK his crowd pleasing performances have seen him open for some of the UK’s top touring bands such as Little Comets, Rationale, Flyte and Guvna B.

The Collision are a young Indie Pop/Rock band from Portsmouth, UK that formed in 2016. They released their debut EP Never Gone in November 2017 to rave reviews and have a strong local following that have allowed them to play headline sell out shows at The Wedgewood Rooms in Portsmouth and The Joiners in Southampton as well as festivals such as Common People and Victorious on the South Coast.
