C M Artist of the Week: Abi Farrell

Oxfordshire’s Abi Farrell was raised on a wide range of female-driven music from the likes of Aretha Franklin to Chaka Kahn and Eva Cassidy which led her to start writing her own songs at age 14, blending carefully crafted melodies with her rich, soulful vocals. Since moving to London in 2017, she’s graced the stages of such storied venues as Jazz Cafe, Spice of Life and The Camden Assembly.


Abi’s control and vibrato of her incredible vocal tone is truly stunning, so it’s no surprise she’s an in-demand independent artist, with lyrics that range from empowerment, independence and dealing with anxiety. Our favourite track is “Ivy”, taken from her recently released debut EP The Only Way I Learn, which you can check out below:

C M Artist of the Week: Promises Promises

Promises Promises are a truly underground band, eschewing traditional labels and management, preferring to oversee their careers in more DIY hands-on methods, producing all of their music in their bedrooms with only laptops and a handful of mics – which is music to our ears here at Unsigned!

This Bristol-based trio draws from a diverse pool of influence, which helps keep their electronic pop sound fresh and interesting. There’s a clear strain of dance/EDM running through the production, but the addition of guitars and live drums adds a layer of organic depth that adds dimension to the music, especially when the band performs live.

The band has just released a video for their newest single “Material” (which you can check out above), but we’re also in love with “Fired Up”, a full-on 4/4 freight train that has echoes of classic trance stabs and big booming kicks that will have you sweating off November’s chill in no time:

C M Artist of the Week: Bee Bakare

Nigeria-born British singer and songwriter Bee Bakare is on a mission, spreading the message of embracing your natural beauty, self-love and being yourself (something we can definitely get behind!). Gathering inspiration from legends like Whitney Houston, India Arie and Lauryn Hill, Bee’s music has received support from the likes of the BBC and Huffington Post and have even seen her preform at Buckingham Palace!

On top of her own musical endeavours, Bee uses her platform to support other women in music by way of her thriving ‘Soul Stripped Sessions’ events (yet another thing we can get behind!). This charismatic performer recently released “Fight for Love”, a follow-up to her single “10000”, which we’ve picked as our choice cut for you to check out below:

C M Artist of the Week: André, the Kid

André, the Kid is singer, songwriter and producer from London. A fantastically talented artist with a seemingly unstoppable work ethic, André has multiple mixtapes under his belt released by The Same Others, a label and music collective he leads. As the music landscape continues to shift, it’s making more and more sense for artists to band together to benefit from the power of community to amplify each other and from what we can tell, The Same Others are doing some really cool things!


Back to André – we were instantly grabbed by the clear level of care and detail that’s gone into his latest record The Dream. The lush, airy production carries the titular theme across the whole record but with enough stylistic switch ups to keep things interesting. The album largely feels like one fully-realised work rather than a collection of songs, similar to projects by Blood Orange and Frank Ocean. A lovely mixups of genres are at work from new R&B and pop sounds to some subtle shades of indie rock and bright electronica. A standout track for us is “Almost There”, a jubilant ‘stream of consciousness’ that we feel really sums up the vibe of the record. Keep you eyes on André, he’s definitely one to watch!

Lords of Ruin hail from the cold north of England, comprised of five seasoned veterans of the hard rock and metal scenes.

Check out our choice cut, the latest single “In From The Cold” and get ready to throw those horns up \m/ :

C M Playlisted: Holly Abraham – “Landslide”



“It’s about the beauty that can be found in starting again. When familiar things shift and change, it can often be perceived as a disaster, but “Landslide” reminds us that sometimes the greatest things in life come from the process of undoing, then rebuilding from the ruin. – Holly Abraham

Holly Abraham is an indie folk pop singer/songwriter originally from Wales, now based in Bristol. With deep, earnest lyrics with a misty and soulful voice, she creates captivating melodies set against delicately beautiful guitar work. Inspired by musicians such as Novo Amor and Of Monsters and Men, Abraham began working closely alongside Norwegian producer and lead singer of indie-pop band–and our very good mates!–Firewoodisland‘s Stian Vedoy. Together, they produced Abraham’s two current singles “Shore” and “Refined in Fire”, which saw support from BBC Introducing with host Richard Pritt declaring it an “enchanting debut single”.

We are completely thrilled and honoured to have the exclusive premiere of “Landslide”, the third single of Holly Abraham’s forthcoming debut EP. Husky vocals accompanied by electric guitar, piano and cello intertwined, electronic drums and big synths create an atmospheric track that combines both delicacy and grandeur.


A pulsing, climbing song that blurs the lines between ballad and anthem, it sees a signer completely in her element and surefooted in her sound. The track will be available on all streaming services tomorrow, so be sure to follow Holly on Twitter and Instagram and your streaming platform of choice to keep updated.

We recently had the good fortune of catching Holly performing live at London’s Slaughtered Lamb venue last Saturday, and she did not disappoint! Taking the stage with only her guitar to accompany her she completely owned the stage, working through some released material as well as teasing some exciting new music on the way.

C M Artist of the Week: Mirror Shot

Mirror Shot prides themselves with “putting the ‘guitar’ in ‘guitar music is dead’ since 2019. Based in London (though none of the members are actually from London), the band dishes out jangly, shimmery indie sounds with poppy hooks that will quickly find themselves stuck firmly in your head. Clearly a group with a dry wit, Mirror Shot says they’ve been descirbed as “amazing”, “loud” and “not good with eye contact”. While we can’t comment on that last bit (hey, we’re a bit shy too!), we can definitely concur they are amazing and their single “Crutch” deserves to be played loud!

C M Artist of the Week: Kiara Di Trana

Kiara Di Trana is our Artist of the Week! This South London-based singer and songwriter was originally born in Epsom, Surrey and points to having a very musical father exposing her to a big breadth of music from a young age. While her influences range from Zepplin, to QOTSA to Etta James (“to name a few!”), her sound is a collage of sorts, using loops and layering harmonies to create unique arrangements. Why not have a listen to “Message” below and get a taste for yourself?

C M Playlisted: Pavey Ark – “Cuckoo”

Hull-based alt-folk band Pavey Ark first landed on our radar back in July of 2108. Richer Unsigned had our own stage at the famous Cornbury Music Festival, who worked alongside us to curate a playlist of performers who went on to dazzle festival-goers with performances across a range of genres. Cornbury chose the band’s song “Leaf By Leaf” for the playlist.

Fast forward a little over a year and the band has just released their latest single “Cuckoo”, a warm folksy number that’s an ideal companion to have in your ears as the temperature starts to get a bit crisp:

And speaking of Cornbury Festival, in case you missed it you can check out the band performing this track recorded live by us from the fest!
