Among the blossoming new talents, DAVE STEWART is spearheading production and management roles with:
- KAYA: a Los Angeles–based, London-born soulful female singer/songwriter who recently signed her first record deal with Warner Brothers Records at the age of 14. Combining the classic songwriting and singing of the soul greats with synthesizers and beats of modern production, Kaya has developed a unique sound and visual which showcases her remarkable voice and melodic writing. You can find out more about Kaya here: https://www.facebook.com/kayasmusic
- HOLLIE STEPHENSON: a London-based soul singer/songwriter initially inspired by Jazz who later discovered Motown, Soul and Blues that sparked her passion for songwriting and singing reminiscent of Billie Holiday, Ray Charles Ella Fitzgerald and Amy Whitehouse. Dave Stewart says, “Hollie’s songs, without a doubt, are going to be stuck in your head for a long time as the world gets to know her and the radio waves become filled with the sound of this amazing new talented singer/songwriter.” You can find more on Hollie here: facebook.com/HollieMusicLondon
- STEWART & LINDSEY: Dave Stewart’s new personal project partners Stewart with a one-of-a-kind young male singer from Louisiana. The duo’s album was recorded between Los Angeles and Louisiana, completely isolated from one another, never recording together in the same room–or state–by using the power of the internet to collaborate on the project. Lindsey says the songs “have so many different influences and sounds…it’s an eclectic mix of everything.” With a woven soundscape of Gospel, Blues, Country and Rock, Stewart says Lindsey is “one of the freshest new vocal discoveries in the last twenty years.” Project release is TBD. You can listen to four tracks from the upcoming album here: http://www.stewartlindsey.com
- THE LAKE POETS: Martin Longstaff, a multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter from Sunderland, England creates heart-in-the-mouth music. Beautiful and quietly devastating. Inspired by artists such as Feist, Jackson Browne, Warren Zevon, Tom Waits, Villagers, and Neil Young, Martin’s output as The Lake Poets is as haunting as it is beautiful. More information for The Lake Poets can be found here: thelakepoets.com
–“Beautifully melodic, honest and emotional tunes about life, love and loss. Martin Longstaff is a new and super exciting talent” BBC Radio 1
–“For decades the sound of the acoustic guitar has pulled at the heartstrings of so many. Now The Lake Poets aka Martin Longstaff is carrying on that tradition with his beautiful, thought provoking, honest acoustic music. When I first heard The Lake Poets I was blown away” The Guardian
