Melina Malone:

‘Melina Malone is one of Irish music’s best kept secrets’ – GoldenPlec

Tipped as ‘one of the best voices in Ireland’ by GoldenPlec in 2021, Dublin born R&B artist Melina Malone is a force to be reckoned with in the Irish music scene. With collaborations with some of Ireland’s finest artists from Mango X Mathman to Zaska, Booka Brass & Glasshouse Music under her belt, her powerful vocal performances often leave audiences captivated and Melina can be seen regularly drawing large crowds whenever she performs. 

Melina took a step away from performing in 2021 to work on her debut album, working diligently over the past year with acclaimed Irish producers Alex O’Keefe and Adam Shanahan to cultivate her sound and bring the vision to life. ‘Aphrodite’ is a powerful debut with flavors of Bossa Nova, 90’s R&B, and groove driven Neo Soul, a unique and fresh offering to the budding Irish music scene, and to the genre itself. Melina’s aim is to redefine the standard of Irish R&B with this record. Her debut LP is set for release in Autumn 2023.

Her latest singles ‘Lovers Sunday’ & Tru Luv’ have garnered support from the likes of RTE 2FM, BBC Introducing, Nialler9, Goldenplec, IMRO, Noctis Magazine, Ones to Watch, and more, plus Spotify Editorial playlist slots on ‘A Breath Of Fresh Eire’, ‘Fresh Finds UK & Ire’, and ‘LED Lights’

‘…Malone really sounds like she has all of the talent in the world and she’s just waiting for the rest of us to catch up with her.’ – BBC Radio, Across The Line 2020

 

Roswell:

‘A folk duo whose voices combine to create a seamless flow of rich, harmonic beauty’ ~ Americana UK

Roswell are Zoë Wren and Jasmine Watkiss, two harmony-obsessed multi-instrumentalists who formed Folk-Americana duo Roswell after an impromptu open mic night in Cambridgeshire in 2018. Within a few months, they had won Purbeck Rising 2018 and released their debut EP ‘Remedy’, which won Fatea’s EP of the Year 2019.

Roswell have supported incredible musicians like John Smith, Calan and Gilmore & Roberts, and played main stage shows at Purbeck Valley Folk Festival, Wimborne Minster Folk Festival and Fête de la Musique in Geneva.

Their second EP, ‘Come Home’, was produced by Dan Wilde and released in February 2020, with a tour including sold-out shows at the Green Note in London, The Stables in Milton Keynes and The Shelley Theatre in Bournemouth.

Roswell are currently writing and recording our debut album, with plans to release at the end of the year. Watch this space!
