British born singer-songwriter and musician Matt Owens first came to prominence as a founder member of indie-folk band Noah and the Whale. Releasing four albums, Noah and the Whale achieved huge success in the UK and overseas, selling over one million albums in the UK alone. The band toured the world between 2006 and 2015, playing hundreds of festivals, including Austin City Limits, Fuji Rocks and Lollapalooza, as well as touring with the likes of Arcade Fire, Bahamas, and Laura Marling.
In 2016 Matt formed the band Little Mammoths, releasing the critically acclaimed debut album Phantom Dreams. The band tours the UK and Ireland on a regular basis, and was invited to play an unprecedented 6 sets at the 2017 Glastonbury Festival.
2018 will see the release of Matt’s debut solo album. It is an album that oozes Americana with its campfire storytelling told mainly on acoustic guitar and piano, reflecting the songwriting skills of some of Matt’s favourite artists Ryan Adams, Jason Isbell and Warren Zevon.

Ben Morgan-Brown is a singer/songwriter and accomplished finger style guitarist. Winner of Purbeck Rising 2019, named by FATEA as one of the Rising Stars of 2018 and described by Tom Robinson of BBC6 Music as ‘the brilliant Ben Morgan-Brown’, his intimate and often highly personal songs and performances have drawn comparisons to Bert Jansch, John Smith & Nick Drake.

His 2019 release Nameless Gold received national airplay and was called “as good as minimalist folk gets…” by Louder Than War and “beautifully sophisticated… with an incredible depth of emotional honesty” by FATEA.
