TOMORROW BIRD is an acoustic folk-duo hailing from Reading, UK. This musical pairing of Jen Bird and Simon Driscoll gives rise to a stunning live act that leaves audiences transfixed. 

Each of their heartfelt songs are a passionate ode to the human experience... They sing of hope, love, loss, courage and empowerment - creating stories and melodies rendered all the more poignant for the duo’s rich vocals and seamless harmonies. 

Following the release of their debut single, Tomorrow Bird were named Best Duo at the 2017 GSMC Awards. The pair have also co-written and produced two full length musicals together; The Island of Lost Children and The Best Murder Mystery Party Ever...

Jen Bird 
A former theatre actress, Jen performed lead roles in 'Jesus Christ Superstar' and 'The King & I' before being bitten by the song-writing bug. As a solo artist, she has released two albums and multiple singles - including 'Shout at the Dark' - a powerful anthem to raise funds for the mental health charity, SANE UK. Jen also performed two songs for Nintendo's critically acclaimed Xenoblade Chronicles 2. 

Simon Driscoll 
Simon began his musical journey as a classical pianist before becoming the front man of folk-rock band, Burnt Tomorrow. Following the release of the band's first two albums, he returned to his classical roots with the stunning piano album, Hope Shines Through. Simon also hosts a musical instrument and equipment review channel on YouTube - the (modestly titled!) Average Reviews from an Average Guy.

BRIGHT SHADOWS are a vocal harmony-driven acoustic pop rock duo based in Reading, UK.
With strong vocals and a lively delivery, the duo fuse a gritty brand of acoustic pop/rock with touches of folk and country. Following the release of their ‘Diffusion’ EP in August 2015, they have been busy writing new material and are excited to share this in the near future. 

THE SEASONS IN SHORTHAND are an alt-folk three piece combining heartfelt introspective songs and dual male and female vocals with driving basslines. 

Starting life as the acoustic project of songwriter Lee Switzer, the band have come together and developed a unique sound that brings his lyrics to life between moments of intimate acoustic folk and full on panic.

A member of the All Will Be Well Records family, The Seasons in Shorthand have found themselves feeling equally at home on stages such as the O2 Academies in Islington and Oxford, as they do in small art spaces and backrooms
