Starting off in folk trio ‘Me and the Grownups’, Anita then caught a good wave in her solo project ‘Lester The Fierce’, which ended in 2015. After a short break, she returns as Devorah, presenting a softer series of songs.

Morning Bear (USA)

The brainchild of Denver-based singer/songwriter John Runnels, Morning Bear is an orchestral indie folk project that channels emotion through vivid imagery and intricate melodies. Morning Bear was formed when Runnels quit his dayjob as an engineer and took a one-way ticket to Europe. From the streets of Sevilla, Spain to the botanic gardens of Copenhagen, the songs touch on following your dreams, growing older, and the doubts of life and love. Characterized by highly dynamic compositions, Morning Bear’s music is a synthesis of the calm and delicate stylings of artists like Bon Iver and Jose Gonzalez with the complexity and depth of the Fleet Foxes and Sufjan Stevens. Featuring soaring vocals and atypical arrangements including cello, violin, piano and more, Morning Bear provides a textured landscape behind pop-influenced hooks.

Dan Chapman (UK)

Dan Chapman emerged with a self titled EP in late 2014 and has been performing regularly ever since, touring with his quartet during 2015 in the UK and then solo in Australia, New Zealand and Europe throughout 2016-17. He produced and released a Live E.P. released on Christmas Day 2016 that features recordings from St John's Church Hall, Cornwall.

With the versatility of Dan's voice combined with an ambient style of guitar, Dan Chapman forges a sound that opens the mind ebbing and flowing through different emotions to encompass and captivate audiences.
