Staring at the Moon tour 2024

Named as one of RnR Magazines Ones to watch for 2022, emerging artist Jenny Colquitt encompasses a unique combination of Americana, indie and folk rock and pop.

Winner of the 2021/2022 FATEA Female artist of the Year award and the 2020/2021 GSMC Award for best female solo singer/songwriter, Jenny’s music is described as fit for film and storytelling at its finest. A voice that uniquely combines the melodic undertones of artists such as Eva Cassidy and the rawness of Alanis Morissette. She writes with soul, lyrical vulnerability and style to accompany her musicality both through keys and guitar.

Jenny’s debut album Something Beautiful was released in November 2021. Described as “very much recommended, for her strong and expressive voice, impactful lyrics and winning melodies” by BBC Radio 2’s Paul Sexton.

2023 saw the release of the EP Lost Animals that was supported with a successful twelve date tour around England and Wales.

Joe Martin

Support comes from international singer-songwriter Joe Martin. Joe is a modern-day troubadour, whose descriptive lyrics paint a picture with every verse. The Lancashire born singer songwriter is deservedly gaining attention on both sides of the Atlantic seeing him play shows around the UK, Europe and legendary venues in Nashville, Tennessee. He grew up listening to the greats and has been influenced by artists such as James Taylor, Simon and Garfunkel to Chris Stapleton and Jason Isbell which is evident in his sound and lyrical style. Joe has recently released his debut album ‘Empty Passenger Seat’ to much acclaim.

“A cut above the plethora of acoustic singer-songwriters. Joe Martin shows an abundance of promise” Americana UK

“Superb melodies accompanied by a fantastic voice and outstanding lyrics.” Fatea Magazine

“This is an album that showcases perfectly Joe Martin’s writing and performing talents, ‘Empty Passenger Seat’ stands alongside and in many cases above, much hitting our inbox out of Nashville at present, it deserves your attention!” W21Music
