CHAI LARDEN - Soulful, bluesy and full of great energy, Chai's storytelling and catchy melodies are adored by her fans. This event is Chai's birthday, so her friends and family are on the line up. Chai is herself one of the most sought after vocalists in the scene, having worked with the Invisible Orchestra, Circle of Light and Origin One in recent years.

BENJAMIN HIBBERT - Beautiful vocals that blend decades of soulful RnB flavours in his own modern take. He will perform as part of a duet with Chai. Despite having one of the sweetest vocals, and most respected artistic styles amongst his peers, Ben has not released his solo material and flies under the radar in the Nottingham music community.

ANTONIA KIRBY - Chai's cousin from Warwickshire, Antonia is a folk and jazz influenced artist with emotional songwriting and a voice that conveys many layers of her soul. This is her first time visit to Nottingham as a performer!

BARA - Musical collaboration of Becca Summerscales and Cara Thompson. A delightful, powerful, evocative duet of dynamic spoken word stars based in Nottingham. "Bara (Bep and Cara) are a music duo based in Notts who perform a variety of mash ups and covers from the 50s to present, and original work. They may or may not have kissed"

PARISA EAST - Hip hop, jazz and a lil Persian spice from Acoustickle founder. Performing as a special rarely seen trio with Chai and Ben, and solo. Parisa is another artist that has yet to release solo material, and is more often seen freestyling than recording in a studio.

AISHA AYAN - A very talented emerging RNB vocalist who is also a mechanic! As an East Midlands artist, she's been on our radar for a while and yet in the shadows, not really seen in the Nottingham circuit, despite having quite a lovely vocal gift.
