The four-piece have kicked off 2022 playing multiple headline shows, at venues including the Water Rats, and are currently working on their debut EP.

Their most recent singles have seen support from BBC Radio 6, BBC Introducing in the West and Amazing Radio with Tom Robinson including latest single ‘Overtime’ in his BBC Introducing Mixtape and describing the single as “an irresistible slow grower!”
https://hotvox.co.uk/artist/glassheads/Glassheads are a Leeds based up and coming rock band composed of Noah Clare, Connor Ludnow, Layth Ibrahim and Tam Nusane.
Drawing inspiration from the pop/rock bands of their youth such as Thirty-Seconds To Mars , Radiohead and The Killers, Glassheads have carved out an inherently new sound. Hard-hitting anthemic choruses and loud guitars fill every venue they play, always leaving their audiences wanting more.
Their debut single “White Flag” (which is out now) was released with Doodlebox Records Ltd.
“This is a band to watch out for in the future and can only get better and better.” (Steve Millington of 10CC)
https://hotvox.co.uk/artist/calon/Adam Lewis aka “Calon” is a Swansea-born singer songwriter based in South-East London.
Calon’s hairpin guitar melodies & candid lyrics transport audiences to personal snapshots; from ex-lovers and accidental philosophies, to existential late-night London bus journeys, Calon invites you to the birthplace of each song.
With a sound echoing the likes of Jeff Buckley, Elliot Smith & Radiohead, Calon’s Jazz chords and Bossa Nova rhythms give a folky and familiar feel.
This year Calon is recording his concept EP entitled “Matryoshka” and playing various gigs in London including The Troubadour.
