You could say The Cherry Brakewells were born in the wrong place at the wrong time. The girl rock trio from London would probably have been more at home in Memphis or Louisiana circa 1966 as their influences are based firmly in the late sixties and early seventies with bands like the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream and Led Zeppelin. The Cherry’s were formed in 2002 originally called ‘Red’. After three years of playing the small gig circuit they decided to go their separate ways.
Medallist's FREE live ep is available via their myspace. Coming together in and around the Bristol area in late 2006, electro rock band Medallist exist as a glorious anomaly in a musical era dominated by run of the mill 'indie bands' and fly by night 'next big things'.

Driving beats and synth-laden dance rhythms are overlayed with snarling guitars and vocals, complete with sleazy sneer and sweet falsettos.

Equally rare is being asked to open for a Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum band at a legendary venue before even releasing a full-length debut . Having a former member of another multi-platinum band jump on board after hearing some demos is pretty much unheard of.
SEA + AIR are Daniel Benjamin (Vocals, Concerto Guitar, Drums, Cymbals, Bells) &
Eleni (Vocals, Harpsichord, Organ Bass Pedal, Drums)

Enjoying an instant rapport, the five piece Karnataka recorded what became their debut album, Karnataka, in Ian's basic home studio. In the beginning, the band had no thought of actually releasing the album — they had made the recording for their own pleasure.
