- Mathilda Homer -
Mathilda Homer is an up-and-coming contemporary artist from London.
Mathilda's sound blends eclectic influences with bittersweet melodies and intimate lyrics that leave no stone unturned. Listeners are drawn into Mathilda's vivid stories that have already allowed the young songstress to become established within the London Songwriting community, with her recently writing music for the film 'Hampstead'.
- Ember -
Ember has emerged from Giles Hayter's recent journey of self-discovery. During this period he has written a album and a novel, both called Connection. The novel - by Giles Hayter - chronicles the birth of Ember, the character. The album - by Ember - is the inner journey told in song.
These are finely crafted modern ballads sung by a unique performer.
"Songs of true power" Simon Gibson, Abbey Road Studios.
- Kassiopeia -
S T Y L E & S O U N D:
The focus of most Kassiopeia pieces is Lina's unique voice, which is at times anxious and frail but can also be angry and fierce. The exceptional harmonic progressions, combined with the melodies and lyrics, lead to numerous moments of surprise and unexpected twists. Soul and art rock entwine, infused with mystical vibes, while time loses all meaning. Kassiopeia's music is versatile, yet unmistakably distinctive.
B I O G R A P H Y:
Kassiopeia was founded in 2008 in Krefeld, Germany, as a musical project fueled by lyrics and music written by Lina Farah, the band’s vocalist and pianist of Egyptian origins. After only a few gigs in Germany, Kassiopeia made an appearance as the opening act on the 'Eier mit Speck' Festival (alongside Everlast, Wallis Bird, Good Charlotte), followed by an extensive tour over the next two years. In early 2012, the group withdrew to work on their debut album, ‘Cyclone’, leading to a three-year hiatus in which the band managed to reinvent itself. From that time on, slowly but surely, the project evolved to become a personal quest to produce art in its purest form, leading to the decision to spread the music not as a band, but as a constellation, mostly composed of Lina Farah (piano, vocal) and Till Menzer (percussion) or Lina on her own.
