English singer and songwriter Maz O'Connor has been described by The Guardian as 'one of folk's brightest young talents'. Though she grew up in the wild Lake District of the Romantic Poets, her grandparents hailed from Ireland, and these roots shine through her music. She spent her teenage years singing in folk clubs, studied literature at Cambridge and has since settled in East London: these diverse influences work together to make Maz's songwriting something unique.
After the release of her acclaimed album 'The Longing Kind' in 2016, Maz has been writing and collaborating extensively, as well as touring the U.K. and Europe, opening for such acts as David Gray, Thomas Dybdahl and Rosanne Cash. She's been commissioned to write songs for UK Parliament and The Royal Shakespeare Company, and is now working on her own piece of music theatre.
After an intense period of writing throughout 2017 and early 2018, Maz released an EP of cover songs in July entitled 'The Undercover EP', which is a collection of some of her favourite songs by other artists, from Bob Dylan to Louis Armstrong, via Greenday. She toured in support of the EP in June 2018 including appearances at Henley Festival and How the Light Gets In, and a packed show at London's The Islington.
Known for her captivating stage presence and her stunning voice, Maz is working on her next album to be released in 2019; a collection of darker story songs by an artist just hitting her stride.
Sam Lewis has collaborated with everyone from Leon Russell to The Wood Brothers. Chris Stapleton dubbed him a modern Townes Van Zandt. He's often labeled with some form of the word 'soulful' (some have even compared his voice to molasses), Lewis' style meets at a juncture of many different genres however there's something indescribably different and with his most recent works (Loversity), he's discovered what most musicians spend lifetimes working for; the place where feel-good music meets vital social commentary.
Loversity is a powerful return from his three-year studio hiatus. Billboard announced the album and premiered the video for the first single, One and The Same. The album landed Lewis a spot on Rolling Stone's 10 New Artists to Watch list, with writer Marissa Moss describing the album as, seventies psychedelic soul, with a storyteller's eye, a swampy Southern groove and an emotional, political punch.
