In November 2022, Evie Asio released her debut album ‘Contending and Contention’, a 9-track concept album dealing with the themes of struggle and self-reflection that she has explored in her own personal battles. The album received critical acclaim in various publications, including Something Else! And Jazz in Europe.

Wilderthorn - www.wilderthorn.com
Wilderthorn (AKA Jon Bilbrough) is known for Secret Gigs in disused and abandoned spaces, turning forgotten places of history and atmosphere into wild and magical ‘Wilderthorn-experiences’. His performances sway between song and improvised territory, driven by Jon’s unique and powerful, emotive voice, tinged with dark operatic tones and folk-style flourishes.
As a singer Jon has worked with award winning composer, Nitin Sawhney, members of the platinum selling rock-band, Athlete, The London Bulgarian Choir and renowned conceptual – electronic producer, Max Cooper.
Along his travels he has shared the stage with the likes of St Vincent, Ben Howard, Foy Vance and This Is The Kit.
His current work, IMMERSE ventures deep into meditative space. Building textures and sounds drawn from nature with soaring layers of wordless vocals recorded in the depths of both cave and forest.
Jon is also a visual artist and film-maker graduating with a 1st Class Hons at the University of Arts London where he was also a visiting tutor.
