MARINA MOON »
Despite her lifelong relationship with music, 20-year-old Marina Moon kickstarted her career in 2015 after she relocated from Spain to study Contemporary Music in London.

She discovered her love of music at the tender age of 5 when she started singing and playing piano, since then she has taught herself to play guitar, drums and bass.

Moving to London was a big step forward on her career as she found she was expanding her musical skills by learning to write, record and produce her own material. After almost three years of studying, she found a confidence within herself to begin playing her songs acoustically at several venues in North London, including the iconic Hard Rock Cafe.

Moon is currently preparing her debut studio album ‘ATTITUDE’ and this young songwriter enjoys many different genres but her biggest influences include the likes of Foo Fighters, Paramore and Ed Sheeran.


OLIVIA (HOWL) »
Born and raised in South East London, Olivia originally found her passion for music singing in school choirs. Having dabbled with many instruments throughout her youth, her songs incorporate an interesting mixture of ambient acoustic sounds. With a slightly experimental sensibility her style is distinguished, eclectic and unique. Combine a sparkling eccentricity that shines through her songs with mellow vocals, and lo-fi layering and you'll find you're held captive and under her musical spell.

You can’t help but be endeared to her softer tones and when one song finishes you find yourself lost in the momentary silence which falls upon you.

Influenced by the likes of Frank Turner, Eliza Doolittle, Paramore, You Me At Six, Fall Out Boy and Bastille, her creativity spans a range of genres and she is fast becoming known for her malleability in musc.

Now studying at The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance, Olivia twins working ruthlessly towards her degree, with running her own music based events alongside her co-host/ friend, Christine. The duo host a regular Open Mic Night, under Braindead Promotions and recently hosted their debut club night: BRAINDEAD at the renowned venue Amersham Arms.. In her spare time, Olivia can be found photographing events and gigs as well as bringing out her new project, HOWL, with bassist Alex Kempson, and drummer, Ollie Holdup. The trio will be debuting their sound at Aces & Eights. Influenced by Royal Blood, Slaves, Marmozets, The Regrettes and Years & Years, they add an electronic, atmospheric tone to their sound, separating them from the usual suspects.
