Johnny Flynn

Johnny Flynn also known as Joe Flynn is a British acoustic singer-songwriter. He has also recorded with the English Folk-Rock act Johnny Flynn & The Sussex Wit. If you like the music of The Tallest Man On Earth you will love Johnny Flynn's similar sound. His second album 'Been Listening' was released to rave reviews in 2010 and is definitely worth purchasing, his extremely talented voice does enough to express why Johnny Flynn will soon be as big a Mumford and Sons. The Times have even described Flynn as "the next poster boy of the nu-folk scene". I would recommend listening to Flynn's fantastic song, 'Leftovers'....

Karima Francis is a fantastic Blackpool-born singer songwriter. She has been around for a while and even graced the stage of the one and only Jools Holland. Her voice is unique, distinguishable from any other, she has this real special quality about her that no one else will ever begin to accomplish. Her album The Author is absolutely incredible, the astonishing voice has an innocent and vulnerable sound that captivates you as a listener and causes each song to be heart wrenching.

Local Natives

Local Natives are an indie rock band from the sunny Los Angeles, their captivating sound has been described as modern worldly folk. Their music has similarities to Fleet Foxes and Bon Iver among others. After being named one of the best new bands by Q magazine it is difficult to say why everyone isn't listening to Local Natives. Their music is very vocally and rhythmically driven and definitely deserves a place on your iPod. I would recommend listening to their single from 2010 Who Knows Who Cares, this is a fantastic song which should no doubt be your summer anthem.
