New Music for 2016

Hot on the heels of my last post which highlighted a few of the incredible artists I was fortunate enough to photograph in 2015, I thought you might like a ‘Ones to watch out for’ list.

The Discovery Talent team have a knack of finding the most outstanding emerging talent for their showcases, but even amongst such strong competition, there are some real stand out acts. Artists who not only have incredible talent and beautifully crafted songs, but also a stage presence so often lacking in today’s performers. These artists, in my humble opinion, are destined for greatness in 2016….

Elle Exxe
For an act that have only been in existence for a little over a year, Elle and her Exxterminators are already the complete package. Totally blew me away the first time I photographed her back in February 2015. With a dirty pop sound (A fiery mix of rock and pop, I do believe) and striking 2D pop art look, Elle Exxe has already headlined the legendary Koko venue in London, England and recently released the fabulous ‘Love to Hate You‘ EP.
Most definitely a one to watch!

Alex Hulme
Fantastic singer songwriter, with catchy folk pop tunes and marvellous stage presence Alex Hulme is a joy to watch, photograph and listen to.
Releasing his ‘Back of the Pack‘ EP early in 2015

Indigo Face
Alternative pop with hauntingly beautiful vocals and wonderful melodic harmonies. Indigo Face recently released their second EP ‘At the Gate‘ and I was delighted when they asked me to photograph the launch.
