Ned Ashcroft

Since releasing his debut EP, Softness Vol. 1, in March 2023, Ned Ashcroft has continued to grow from strength to strength, attracting attention for his ability to bridge the worlds of pop, jazz and rap. Described by JazzFM as "Very, very exciting... Remember that name, extraordinary", the London-based Singer-Songwriter is very excited to celebrate the release of his second EP, Softness Vol.2, and to partner up with REAL once more, bringing you an extended set of music with his astonishing live band.

Lexi Berg

Lexi Berg is a Swedish-American singer-songwriter based in London. She gained popularity with her self-released debut single "What If", which was featured in the soundtrack of the critically acclaimed 2020 Netflix drama Pieces of a Woman starring Vanessa Kirby. Berg released her EP "Empire of One" in September 2021.


Semwanga is a indie/hip-hop artist from the south east. With a passion for music since a young age his influence comes from everywhere, from Tyler the creator to grime, shoe gaze or the funky stylings of Fela Kuti. He makes music inspired by the world around him and with his first ep on the way, he’s only just starting.

Ed Addo

Hailing from the UK and Europe, with Ghanaian and Lebanese heritage, Ed Addo is a musician who brings a unique and diverse perspective to the world of music. His rich and dynamic sound, which blends elements of Hip-Hop, Jazz, Soul, and R&B, is a reflection of his experimental curiosity for discovery and his deep understanding of the world. Ed's music is characterised by crisp, impactful lyrics and compositions that leave a lasting impression on listeners.

Wallis McDowall

Hey there, I'm Wallis, I'm a self proclaimed gobby shite from the North West of England but now a proud Londoner. I came to London 13 years ago to train at Sylvia Young and The Brit School and haven't left! My artist journey started in early 2020 when I turned down a job to sing on a cruise ship. Fast forward to March I released my debut single ‘Never Gonna Be’ which was played by Hew Stephens on Radio1. My music is Pop with strong R&B and Rap influences. I’m inspired by the likes of Ariana Grande, Doja Cat and The Weekend as well as UK artists like Ella Mai, Stormzy and Aitch. Since my debut I've released 7 songs, 5 of which have been tracks of the week on BBC Radio and I was also shortlisted for the BBC Live Lounge Competition. I love performing and played some great Festivals last year including a main stage show supporting Tom Zanetti and the Bad Boy Chiller Crew.

Giulia Sofia

London-based composer, Giulia Sofia, has been honing her music production skills in recent years. Originally a singer and pianist, Giulia has combined her musical skills with her twenty years of musical experience creating a perfect marriage between her passions.  Giulia's evolution in electronic music has allowed her to introduce another element into this union and extend the range of her of her talent even firther. Using the sound of instruments and voices of a mixed culture environment allows Giulia to challenge the boundaries of music by using music to tell stories, which explore depth harmony, movement and composition.
