"Better Days" is the title track from Kaz Hawkins' latest EP, which has been defined as "a step in a new direction taking outside her comfort zone of the blues genre that everyone normally associates her with". The four-track album is piano based and is an intimate invitation to hear Kaz vocally vulnerable and surprisingly raw, while the songs themselves are clear messages of hope and celebration.
Generation Jones is a British acoustic duo comprising singer songwriters Geoff Carr and Jon Beynon. Based in the North Cotswolds, they perform to great acclaim at a variety of venues and events, mixing their own material with sensitive renditions of classic favourites.
