Ethan Barnett – A 19 year old singer songwriter from Hertford who performed for us at our recent Fun Palace event.
Henrick Solberg – returns to The Live Music Project after performing for our main event last October.
Solberg is a singer/songwriter from Norway currently based in London. He writes indie folk songs with a dash of soul and pop that takes inspiration from artists like  City and Colour, Bon Iver, John Mayer, Allen Stone etc. His style is heavily based around his unique vocals and melodies. It was Solberg’s grandfather that  taught him how to play the guitar, and the very guitar that his grandfather  used when teaching Solberg, was given to him when his grandfather passed  away. Solberg has said that “owning the guitar that was used to teach you the instrument is really rare, and the fact that it was my grandfather’s just makes it
even more special to me.” Solberg released his debut EP “Hello World” February 20th, 2015. His second EP “I Have Been Told” will be released early 2016.
 
Hope – Hope is a young singer-songwriter from St Albans, Hertfordshire, UK. Hope’s songs are informed largely by issues such as loss, illness, the fragility of life, family and belonging.  
 
Hope will also be performing for our main showcase night on 28th November prior to the release of her latest EP ‘Optimist’ in December.

In 2011, Hope was a diagnosed with a rare genetic condition called MEN Type 1 which has also played a role in influencing her songs. Hope has a strong sense of social justice and equality, and an interest in writing songs about balancing the desire to be accepted and the wish to be an individual. She writes about the pressures upon young people to conform to certain social and gender stereotypes. She is primarily self-taught, and composes mainly by ear on piano and guitar. She also plays ukulele.
 
Phoenix O’Neill – An emerging performer who is gaining strength & confidence from performing locally at open mics & more recently for Trestle’s Fun Palace event in October. We loved her performance so much we asked her to come back & do our Acoustic Cafe Sessions! Phoenix writes her own songs & also covers some songs that influence her songwriting.  
 
Nia & The Gramophones – A brand new act for the local scene headed up by Nia Visser who has been writing songs with April Blue’s Ian Morcher. Nia & Ian performed for the very 1st time at a Busking Day for The Crescent charity in St Albans this Summer.
