London based, three piece band the Noisettes have been together for over 3 years with Dan Smith on lead guitar/vocals, Shingai Shoniwa on vocals/bass guitar and Jamie Morrison on drums. Their new single ‘Don’t Upset the Rhythm’ released on 23rd March, precedes the much anticipated new album ‘Wild Young Hearts,’ released 3rd week of June.
Already established as an exciting live performer, 21 year old Karima Francis’s debut album ‘The Author’ is released on 23 March. Performances of her debut album and irrepressible new single ‘Again’ have been showcasing her passion for melody and heartfelt lyrics, wowing audiences across the UK before she sets off on her own headline tour and guests on selected James Morrison UK tour dates.
