SAM FORREST (NINE BLACK ALPS)
Sam Forrest is best known as front man of sludgy din makers, Nine Black Alps, he put out his first solo offering, ‘Down The Hillside’, in 2008 a year after the Alps’ released second album Love/Hate and were freed from their Island Records contract. But the major label split only heightened Sam’s musical output and once Nine Black Alps independently released third album, ‘Locked Out From The Inside’, Sam pumped out ‘Paper Crown’ in 2009 and both ‘Born Again EP’ and ‘No Imagination’ in 2010. In his spare time, he continues to collaborate with fellow singer-songwriter Hayley Hutchinson, as The Sorry Kisses whose albums include 2008’s ‘Hard Drive’, 2009’s ‘Um and Ah’ and 2011’s ‘Keep Smiling’. If that isn’t enough, Sam also became a record producer, working with Benjamin Francis Leftwich and Chris Helme as well as throwing a fourth Nine Black Alps album to tape. Somehow, he’s found time to record ‘The Edge…’ an album that bursts with dry, vintage acoustics, bending backwards guitars, waltzes of wonder and hushed vocals of eerie lyrics from the darkest woods of England.
Matt Tregortha is a Birmingham based acoustic singer/songwriter who has been playing in the area since early 2010. He released his first E.P ‘Burning Down The Bridges’ in May 2010, and followed it up in April 2011 with his second E.P ‘Divide’. Matt is currently working on his debut album.
