More Than Echoes

More Than Echoee are an acoustic duo from Medway, Kent, comprising of Samantha on vocals and Craig on guitar. They specialise in original music with a pop and rock vibe and also play the occasional cover by the likes of Fleetwood Mac and Ed Sheeran.

They came together at the end of 2015 and already have an arsenal of original songs, including energetic, driving tunes such as Dance With Life and Hold On To Hope, balanced with delicate and intricate numbers like I Used To Spend A Week Just Breathing and Piece By Piece. More Than Echoes pride themselves on their emotionally-charged vocals, poetic and thoughtful lyrics and melodious guitar that ranges from uplifting to heart-wrenching.

Green Diesel

ailing from Faversham in Kent, folk-­rock band Green Diesel first emerged in 2009 and take their inspiration from the depths of English folk lore and legend and the classic folk rock sound of their predecessors Fairport Convention and The Albion Band. Blending violin, mandolin, dulcimer and accordion with electric guitars and drums, Green Diesel’s sound is born from a love of traditional English music and a desire to bring it to a modern audience.

Performing original compositions, steeped in folklore, alongside inventive reworkings of traditional songs and tunes the band have built up a reputation as a fearsome live act. Their energy and musicianship grabs the audience by the scruff of the neck and leaves them wanting more.

‘More Fairport than Fairport and more Steeleye than Steeleye…’ – Darren Johnson (Bright Young Folk)

‘Green Diesel has skyrocketed into my top few bands…’ – Paul Rawcliffe (FATEA)

‘Folk-rock in the grand manner…’ – Dai Jeffries (R2 Magazine)
