It is almost five years since Sheffield alt-rockers The Sherlocks burst onto the scene with a succession of radio hits and stellar live shows.

Their 2017 debut album Live for the Moment was a top 10 hit and was followed last year by their sophomore offering Under Your Sky, which boasts new single One Day.

The band has played some massive gigs and festivals both as headliners and as special guests to Liam Gallagher, The Kooks and Kaiser Chiefs.

Eliza Shaddad

Scottish-Sudanese singer-songwriter Eliza Shaddad released her debut album Future in 2018 which instantly won praise from the likes of Rolling Stone, MOJO and The Sunday Times.

Her new EP Sept-Dec, features a grungier and edgier sound that has also impressed the critics.

Named a Rising Star of 2019 by the BBC, Eliza’s reputation for powerful live shows has seen her touring extensively with the likes of Kate Tempest, James Bay and Turin Brakes.
