Bel Cobain

Surrounded by an air of mystique East London songstress Bel Cobain who comes from a unique community of musicians who have come together in support of each other to create a whole new movement.

She first came to the fore in 2019 when her breakout song ‘Introverted Stoner’ put her on the map followed by her collaboration with Lex Amor the following year which cemented her place within the scene.

Her recent single 'Leader' produced by Santiago Morales fuses Latin and Afrobeat in her Soulful Jazz sound and expresses the unspoken power of submission through a fresh lens of empowerment and sexual liberation, shining a light on the freedom of surrendering and allowing yourself to be led.

Bel cuts through the noise with her radical thinking avoiding unnecessary frills to focus her music style, rooted in poetry, on challenging societal and political narratives. A unique soul and vessel to share stories we can all connect with, she aspires for her music to be a gift and an act of love for all to share and enjoy especially in her immersive Live performances which are something to behold.


British singer-songwriter Kyra, has quickly established herself as a key player in the UK music scene. Her unorthodox and gripping releases from debut EP project 'Xanadu', caught the attention of BBC Radio 1's Nick Grimshaw, featuring in his 'track of the week' series, Jamz Supernova's BBC1Xtra Top 5 EPs and Jess Izsatt (BBC Introducing).

Throughout the year, Kyra has lent her perfected soulful vocal to a number of more jazz infused singles; 'after the love', 'blossom spring' (recently playlisted on Jazz FM) and the latest 'excellent', a self care song created in ode to her beloved sister circle.

2023 looks to be an exciting year of continued success for Kyra, with the release of her second EP 'as things grow', amplified with an array of live shows across the UK and also internationally.
