They bring a unique sound and perspective to the stage; powerful original songs beautifully performed, fusing rock, jazz and blues.

Support will be from two bands previously created on Sounding Out: Platform 7 – soulful, playful and upbeat, Platform 7 formed in 2012, have performed in venues including Bush Hall and Union Chapel, collaborated with Mark-Anthony Turnage on Bridges and Police Dog Hogan on their track Home; described by audiences as “big on tunes, massive on heart, off the scale in terms of talent.”

Inside Out – combining powerful, searing rock energy, intricate melodies and dextrous tonal shifts, Inside Out make music full of emotion and honesty; catchy, moving and intense. Creating Music, Transforming Futures: Sounding Out celebrates the life-changing power of music, providing a platform for unheard voices and previously hidden talent.

“The depth of musical ability in the room is obvious from the start, and the range of styles is surprising… rap, some R&B, some reggae,”

Tim Dowling, Guardian, interviewing Platform 7 “What I didn’t expect was the level of professionalism… Music and lyrics are written by the men who seemed to have that essential ingredient to carry an audience: confidence,” Inside Out reviewed in Inside Times.
