Our April showcase is out of this world, any of these 5 could headline Oporto!

Story Books
Our headline 5-piece hail from Kent and have recently lit up SXSW in Texas ahead of their debut EP on Communion music out on the 29th April. It's been a good month or so leading up with a full tour supporting King Charles and lead single 'Simple Kids' recently shouted out as Zane Lowe's "most hyped" record on his Radio 1 show!

Alex Vargas
Danish singer, guitarist and songwriter formally of blues rockers Vagabond. Compared to Steve Winwood & Robert Palmer for his deep tone Alex has appeared at Glastonbury, T in the Park and V music festivals.

Fruit, the debut single by London based Garnets has been compared to the likes of sigur ros & featured by This is Fake DIY. The band, based between Leeds and London create beautiful music to drift away to.

Roxanne de Bastion
Berlin native Roxanne grew up listening to the Beatles, learning guitar and attempting to write and perform in her own way.
Packing a bag and guitar as soon as she finished school she flew to London with a one-way ticket. Now based in London, but touring constantly apart from a break last year to record her debut record with Gordan Raphael (The Strokes/Regina Spektor) in his Berlin studio. The result is the fantastic, self released ‘Nomad Songs’ out this month.

Following the release of a second acclaimed record handling the devastating effects of the recession and social inequality in society. Pearson has built on the success of his debut with maturity and melody.
