Canterbury based UK singer songwriter Luke Jackson has been playing live and recording for over 10 years now, steadily developing an enviable reputation for himself in the Folk, Roots, Americana & Acoustic circuits.

​In addition to the UK, Luke regularly tours across Europe, USA and Canada.

​In the summer of 2019 he played the 'Costa Del Folk' Festival in Portugal, September marked his first full solo tour in the USA and his last full length studio album 'Journals' was released in November that year to great reviews and was made 'Album of the Year' by Fatea Magazine, with R2 Magazine saying 'Journals' is an excellent album from a very special singer with a great repertoire, fully confirming his star potential beyond the folk scene'.

After going back to both Europe and the USA in early 2020 for another two successful tours, like many, many others, Luke's career was 'put on hold' by the end of March with the advent of Covid 19.

Luke kept himself busy and engaged with the musical community through a series of themed live stream shows and after a bit of a creative writing surge, released a 7 track EP in early 2021 of songs written during lockdown called 'Of The Time'.

Initially a digital release, it is now available in CD format as well and garnered great reviews with Fatea magazine saying "Luke Jackson has gifted us with one of the most important and essential releases I've heard in quite some time" whilst At The Barrier journal noted "At a time when the gift of music is something to cherish, 'Of The Time' is an inspired offering" and it was subsequently voted 2021 EP of the Year by Fatea Magazine!
2022 turned out to be one of Luke's most successful years yet. It started with a prestigious support slot opening for Fairport Convention on their Winter Tour in February, a dream run of openers for Richard Thompson, two weeks songwriting and performing in Nashville, including a show at the iconic Bluebird Cafe, a run of shows supporting the legendary Marillion and to finish off the year, several openers with the wonderful Jools Holland.

​Alongside all of this, Luke continues to tour relentlessly in his own right, either solo, with either a bassist or drummer or as a trio with both of them.

"I was hugely impressed by every part of Luke's music – he's a great singer, writer and performer, a striking new voice." – Frank Turner

"Reminds me of Jeff Buckley, which can only be a good thing." – Mark Radcliffe BBC Radio 2

Angel beckons you turn off the lights, close your eyes and drift off into her music.

“I think we should all just sit in the dark with one another and see each other for who we really are. Don’t deny who you are now or who you’ve been in the past. Be in the moment more. A lot of my music is about this. I’m just trying be the best person I know how to be, embracing any and all flaws and creating to the best of my ability. I want to be in the moment. I want to use all of the gifts that I’ve been given and take advantage of them while I’m on this planet. That’s my goal."

"Angel Snow's music is absolutely beautiful. When she sings I hold my breath." - Alison Krauss

Fieldlily is a sister harmony duo who write gentle songs for weary hearts. Made up of Emillie and Beth Key, their music crosses alt-folk with an acoustic/singer-songwriter vibe and they love to write songs that speak of hope.

Sunrise emerged during the uncertainty of lockdown and was written as an anthem of hope and a reminder to look to new and beautiful things ahead but also to hold onto what/who is constant in our lives. It's also reflective of a personal journey Beth was going through at the time and is as much of a reminder to herself as it is to everyone who listens to stay hope-filled.
