Nana M Rose
London-based, Dutch-born singer songwriter Nana M. Rose writes touching, alternative pop ballads that invite you to escape into her world. According to Wonderland Magazine ‘her powerful, timeless, old-soul
vocals feel at once nostalgic and revolutionary, as she belts poetic lyrics with the utmost control and
emotion’. Inspired by powerhouse contemporaries like Adele and Lana del Rey, but also legendary
songwriters like Joni Mitchell and Carole King, Nana delivers a vintage pop-sound ‘that cannot be
compared to any’ (Wonderland Magazine). About the raw, heart-wrenching emotion that Nana has been praised for ever she first entered the scene, the established American singer-songwriter Sharon van Etten stated: ‘’This brought tears to my eyes’’. In 2023 Nana M. Rose supported The Veils on their Europe tour and will be releasing her EP Feathers on 6 October.
Miranda is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist native to the West Indies, born in the USA and based in the UK. She's a lover of all things music and truth. Her inspirations span the likes of Lauryn Hill, Tracy Chapman, Rag n Bone Man, Mali Music and Cory Asbury, etc. In 2022, Thomas Coxhead (of the House of Coxhead) selected her for the longlist of the Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition. Upon hearing her single 'Broken People', he wrote, "Miranda. has a raw talent. Her voice stood out against the other entries within her genre, with great songwriting ability to boot." She believes that great music is a gift, but more importantly a tool. A broadcast for whatever you want to pump into the world. She pushes forth a message of truth and upliftment, hoping the outcasts and downtrodden, the lonely and forgotten, even those on the other side of life's spectrum and everyone in between, feel heard, seen and loved.
