Breakout's monthly showcase for new and breaking acts staged by Music Week in conjunction with All Night Long Promotions, throws a spotlight on unsigned and newly-signed acts.
Join the Breakout guestlist for free entry before 8.30 pm at the next event featuring the following artists:
Bebe Black Both striking and an unknown quantity to many, Bebe Black is a London-based singer-songwriter hailing from Dorset. After quickly impressing and simultaneously signing to Columbia Records, the stylishly exciting debutant now looks set to demand attention in 2012 with her first single which is yet to be revealed. Bebe Black is also recording her debut album that will also be released via Columbia Records, early 2013.
The Night are a new London based six piece band comprised of three boys and three girls. Signed to Parlophone and EMI Publishing at the end of last year, The Night have spent the past six months locked away developing and defining their own blend of " baroque brooding pop " (NME). Their first online offering 'Turn Your Light On Me' can be found at www.thenight.com. Following successful spots at The Great Escape and Dot To Dot festivals in May and June, The Night join us at Break Out days before taking to the stage at Hard Rock Calling alongside Amy McDonald and Bruce Springsteen.
Kitty Cowell Each year the British Academy of New Music holds an end of year showcase for its students to show how they've progressed. This is the music college attended by Ed Sheeran, and has a variety of music based courses. This year the best of the bunch from the 2011-2012 Artist Development course will be taking the stage at Breakout in July. This comes in the irrepressible form of Kitty Cowell, the rap/electro livewire hailing from the Midlands via London, Paris & South Wales. As part of the Binary Kids she toured with Lady Sovereign, and she's also played with the likes of Example & Ndubz, whilst collaborating with french DJ/producer Kaio. Striding out as a solo artist she has a new mixtape '13' which you can check out at?www.kittycowell.tumblr.com
Cedellah - Another successful student from this year's Access to Music Artist Development programme at BANM,. Born in Africa and raised in Yorkshire, Cedellah is a truly unusual and arresting new British talent. Take Janelle Monae, throw in some M.I.A. and a large dose of classic Grace Jones and you're getting warm.
Luke Sital Singh - London native Luke Sital-Singh, has his roots in an eclectic mix of songsmiths both young and old, from Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Joni Mitchell to Bon?Iver, Josh Ritter and Tallest Man On Earth. Sonically Luke and band nod towards the grandeur of other influences like Sigur Ros as Luke's voice soars high above?us but only to land with an intimacy so close and raw that breathing seems both inappropriate and unnecessary.
Liz Lawrence - A 21 year old London-based singer - signed to SonyATV Publishing. Her debut album, she's just licensed independently in Ireland where she's been gigging a lot and the first two singles have been play listed on RTE 2. A hugely compelling performer and very talented writer she'll release her debut UK single in early August, on the back of the 'Live from No.82' EP that came out in May on Young & Lost Club.
