James Passey is a naturally gifted songwriter and musician. Picking up a guitar at the age of 15, he began writing songs almost immediately, inspired by artists such as Noel Gallagher, Lee Mavers (The La’s), Ryan Adams, Elliott Smith, Paul Weller, John Lennon and George Harrison.
James has had no formal musical education, instead with a natural ear for melody, he chose to learn & hone his writing skills playing in bands. His first band The Sweet Leaves were signed to Metropolis Music & supported well known bands including Kula Shaker, Travis, Reef and Cerys Matthews.
While writing in ear-nest last year, his initial raw demos were picked up by several industry people and organisations including: Chris Gabbitas at Clintons Solicitors (Grammy award winner), Bob Patmore (producer / label owner) and Simon Davis (Soundnet). James has recently been recording new material with producer George Shilling and for an upcoming new album sometime this year.
“Jamesʼ songs immediately struck me as well-crafted and thoughtful and Iʼve been impressed by his ded-ication and musicianship” -Chris Gabbitas-Grammy Award Winner (Clintons Law)
“James is a master songwriter…a joy to produce and work with.” George Shilling (Frank Turner, Primal Scream, Steve Win wood, Ocean Colour Scene)

Al Cosnett is a singer songwriter based out of Bristol. Opinions seem hard to categorize him as he covers bluesy elements with funky folk rock, Americana, blues folk and a slash of protest punk. His sound includes strong lyrical content and melodies. He has named his sound” Flunk” .
