Josh Savage, Adam Double, Tommy Ashby plus Devin-Jade
Josh Savage sang before he spoke, lulling himself to sleep in his Paris cot.
Born in England and relocated to France after his father borrowed a tie and went for an interview on the way back from the Italia 90 World Cup, Josh inherited that ‘Let’s see what happens if we try this’ attitude.
This same approach to life led him to being selected at the age of 8 as a treble soloist for l’Académie Vocale de Paris. He astounded many when, at the age of 11, he stepped in with only 1 week’s notice, learning the solo treble part in Hebrew in the 3rd Chichester Psalm by Leonard Bernstein to perform with the adult choir at the American Cathedral in Paris.
Returning to live in Winchester, Josh was immediately selected to join the National Children’s Choir as a soloist, touring Australia and New Zealand.
He has now so far supported acts as diverse as Razorlight, Rizzle Kicks, Reverend and the Makers, Roll Deep and even some acts with names that don’t begin with ‘R’ such as Benjamin Francis Leftwich and Catfish & The Bottlemen- although of course he couldn’t resist performing in front of Royalty in Dubai.
After splitting from his band Sleeping Robots in 2012, London based singer-songwriter Adam Double has gone on to release 3 solo recordings.
The first of which, Live at Phoenix Sound, lead to a nomination (and subsequent) win in the Best Male Artist category at the Best of British Unsigned Music Awards 2013.
In 2014, he released his 3rd EP entitled ‘Phil’, which charted at no.43 in the iTunes pop album chart and no.114 in the main album chart.
He also found time to play bass and sing backing vocals for Lewis Watson and support Jools Holland’s Big Band.
Tommy Ashby combines the folk and blues styles he gleaned whilst growing up in a quiet Scottish town with a modern songwriting sensibility to create a unique brand of acoustic pop.
His last single ‘Broken Bones’ was premiered on BBC Radio 1, while his upcoming EP ‘Spare Parts’ is due for release Christmas 2014 when he’ll be supporting Nina Nesbitt on her December acoustic tour.
Devin-Jade is 14yrs old, she has been singing and playing her guitar for 2 years now, she puts her own quirky spin on a variety of different covers as well as her own songs.
With a refreshingly unique voice accompanied by cute tones, Devin-Jade is well worth keeping an ear out for.
