Alex Lipinski is a twenty-four year old singer/songwriter from the South-West of England. His debut album Lonesome Train was released in the UK last year on the independent label Blue Chameleon, receiving strong reviews and critical recognition in the national UK press.
Alex’s music stems from Americana, Folk and Rock ‘n’ Roll, and cites The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Ryan Adams amongst his main influences.
Alex has been gigging extensively this year in the UK, mainly in London and the South-West, and has also performed a number of shows in Europe. Alex is currently working on his second album.
“Alex Lipinksi channels the best tones of John Lennon and Roy Orbison and makes them his own.” – Rock ‘n’ Reel Magazine.
Karl Culley is a fingerstyle acoustic guitarist, songwriter and singer from the North of England. His début album Bundle Of Nerves was released in late 2009 by Triumphant Sound Records and received significant praise from MOJO magazine.
Among Karl’s influences are Nick Drake, John Martyn, John Lee Hooker, and Paul Simon, but he has distilled his musical inspirations into something uniquely his own delivering an intriguing set of modern-folk, alt-world, and skiffle-punk.
Karl’s second album The Owl was released in 2011 and Karl has gigged extensively at venues and festivals up and down the UK. His songs have been on the radio and television in both England and Poland. Karl is currently recording his third album.
“If John Martyn, Newton Faulkner, Tim Buckley and Jose Gonzalez rock your boat, here’s a new name to delight you.” – The Sunday Express
Hayden Berry comes from the north of England and has been writing, recording and performing his own songs for over fifteen years. Having been signed to Warner Bros in the late 1990s, Hayden now writes and performs his own gently crafted acoustic/folk based songs citing Leonard Cohen and Neil Young as some of his biggest influences.
Hayden recorded his first solo album, Music from My Mountain, in Switzerland. This was followed by Moving Along (2004), What do you Believe In? (2006), and This Too Will Pass (2008), which were all recorded in Krakow, Poland.
Hayden released his fifth album, The World And Me, in May 2011 on the Krakow-based Preserved Sound label and describes his latest album as being much more “ambiently upbeat”. Hayden is about to start work on his sixth solo album.
“Likened to songwriters such as Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, Hayden’s songs speak of lost loves and personal journeys.” – Music@PL.PT Magazine
