Simply stated, The EVT Band is an all original, latin alternative band, fronted by Ivette Torres-Albano (EV), a Cuban American singer/songwriter and producer who was born and raised in New York. The music has been called eclectic, a fusion of many genres moving through latin, rock, reggae, jazzy ballads, country and so on. EV's voice has been described as clear and smooth while the rhythm section firm yet free enough to dance around the vocals.
"Better days" is a step in a new direction for Northern Ireland singer/songwriter Kaz Hawkins, a step which has taken her outside her comfort zone of the blues genre that everyone normally associates her with. The four-track piano based EP is an intimate invitation to hear Kaz vocally vulnerable and surprisingly raw, while the songs themselves are clear messages of hope and celebration.

Jon Gomm is an acoustic singer-songwriter with an incredible virtuoso guitar style, where he uses one acoustic guitar to create drum sounds, basslines and sparkling melodies all at the same time. The emphasis is always on the soulful vocals and songwriting, however. His live shows combine deeply personal performances and a natural wit, with a once-seen-never-forgotten two-handed guitar style, both physical and complex, producing sounds people can barely believe are coming from a humble acoustic guitar.
