This was a unique event for the area and an exciting one at that! All the artists that performed are local and serious about their music. The profits from the event went directly to the solo artists to help them boost their careers and reward their passion for music. So lets find out some more about them!
I study at BIMM Bristol and got on the BIMM Bristol 2016 album. I have played at the NEC (Birmingham), getting to the final 30 of 10,000 contestants for a singing competition. I have a Pop/Reggae/Funk band who appeared on BBC Bristol as part of a summer playlist. We recently recorded with Jim Barr from the band Portishead producing us. I gig frequently in Bristol and will be gigging more in Bath this year.
I'm in my first year at BIMM Bristol studying music but originally from Dorset. I've played lots of small festivals and charity events, starting out playing a few songs in pubs at my mums bands gigs during the interlude. I hope to be gigging around Bristol a lot more in the next year. I'm also hoping to write and release my own EP over the next few months!
Chelsea Paget, is a singer songwriter from Bath, Somerset. Since the age of nine, she has been singing around the local area and at the age of thirteen began to song write.

Promises Promises is a four-piece EDM/Pop band focused on movement, energy and the fluidity of sound. The band draws from their diverse pool of musical influences to create a collective sound that is unique and contrasting, whilst remaining marketable within contemporary pop music. While on record, space is left for the synth and vocal hooks to tear through your radio, live they don’t hold back; combining amped-up synths with big guitars and even bigger drum grooves guaranteed to get audiences moving.
Based in Bristol, Promises Promises is a true underground band. They have no record label, no management and do everything themselves. They produce all their music in their bedrooms with nothing more than a laptop and a couple of microphones. At the end of the day, Promises Promises is just four friends who want nothing more than to make music together and share it with the world.
