THE BEACH

Not your average singer-songwriter, The Beach (real name George Morgan) is fast building a name for his captivating melodies and powerful vocals. Performing with a full band, his live shows are an immersive experience and the New Faces tour will be a special opportunity to see this hotly tipped young act. Watch the official video for ‘Thieves’ on YouTube, here:

ADAM FRENCH

Having played the BBC Introducing stage at Reading & Leeds last summer, supported numerous big names including Frances and Jack Garratt to name a few, and just wrapped his own UK headline tour, Adam French, a 22 year-old singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from the Northwest of England, joins New Faces as a seasoned live performer. Listen to ‘More To Life’ on soundcloud here:

RUKHSANA MERRISE

London solo artist Rukhsana Merrise released her debut EP ‘September Songs’ to a wealth of acclaim in 2015. The New Faces tour will be a rare opportunity to see her perform in an intimate setting as throughout March she will be supporting the Brit Award winning James Bay on his European tour and at his sold out Hammersmith Apollo shows. Listen to ‘Money’ on soundcloud here:

MATT WOODS 

Classically trained as a chorister from a young age, Matt Woods has developed a love for vocal harmony which is clear in his music as he combines soulful vocals with minimal, electronic production. Having relocated from Cornwall to London and spent the last year in and out of the studio honing his craft, he’ll release his debut EP ‘In The Dark’ on 20th April just ahead of the New Faces tour kicking off.
