THE WONDER STUFF
Check out what Miles and Erica have been up to recently, there's loads of really good stuff (excuse the pun!) on the website, past and present (thewonderstuff.co.uk) very excited to have them on board!
Many of you will know guitar prodigy, Chantel Mcgregor from her recent sold out show at the Louth Riverhead Theatre. One for the blues fans for sure although this from her biog suggests she'll have a few tricks up her sleeve "...after years of touring and festival appearances, Chantel returned with a vengeance with ten new songs that not only salutes contemporary rock, but shows her gradual transition from conventional Blues to a harder, bigger and bolder rock sound with progressive influences." Liking the sound of that a lot. Check out her website chantelmcgregor.com, she's a serious talent and we're really excited to have her involved.
Mr B the Gentleman Rhymer
I think it's fair to say Mr. B wears his influences on his sleeve! A firm festival favourite, "chap hop" pioneer and all round musical genius. "...he has travelled the world, from Surrey to Osaka, Banstead to Berlin, Middlesborough to Minneapolis, Norway to New York and the Edinburgh Fringe to Glastonbury bringing his beats, rhymes and manners. As well as songs about cricket, pipe smoking, high society and interfering with livestock." Hold on to your trilbies people...
Ramping the tempo up a notch, next off the block are MINT, they hail from Grimsby, and their brand of high energy, alternative rock has drawn comparisons to the Queens of the Stone Age, My Bloody Valentine and the Arctic Monkeys.
