Blog » Nashville, X-Factor Stars & UK Tours


 

With signs of Spring finally spreading across the country (even in our chilly Sheffield offices!) it's time to look back at what our artists have been up to so far this year, and what we've got in store in the coming months. We've got tours, new albums and some big international news! 

  DAUGHTERS OF DAVIS  

Daughters of Davis wrapped up their tour with X-Factor star Sam Bailey on February 18th, with a star-studded final night at the London Apollo. It was one of many highlights on a tour that has seen the soulful sisters win new fans the length and breadth of the country. But don't just take our word for it...

"With their vibrant retro country image and folk soul music they owned the stage and were fantastic to see live, the only disappointment with their set is that it was too short!"

"We loved their chirpy stage act and beautifully harmonised singing... we hope that Daughters of Davis will be back in Leicester some day!"
(Music in Leicester)

The next steps for the duo is a return to writing, preparing a follow-up to last year's acclaimed British Soul. They will also be hitting the road for their own headline shows in May - keep up with the dates as they're added at:

  PHILIPPA HANNA 


Kicking off 2015 with a writing and management trip to Nashville, and currently on the road with Britain's Got Talent Winner's Collabro, this year is already set to be one of Philippa Hanna's busiest yet. There are 9 dates left to catch the BGT tour, find out more at:
 
Philippa Hanna has also been announced as one of the recipients of the Music Export Growth Grant. This scheme offers grants to independent music companies to enable them to market successful UK artists overseas. For Philippa, this means she will now be able to return to Nashville to begin the process of recording a new album. It's an exciting development, and one which will allow for a new, even bigger chapter in Philippa's career.
 
“Any artist who is successful in receiving funding from the Music Export Growth Scheme has gone through a rigorous selection process... The panel were obviously impressed with Philippa’s plans and we look forward to hearing of her future successes.”

  PETER NEVLAND  

 

Flame-haired Texan poet Peter Nevland will be in the UK from April 4th-27th. Kicking off with a set at Spring Harvest in Minehead, Peter will be bringing the Tree of Psalms Tourto audiences in and out the church across the country. Aimed at bringing to life the beauty and power of the Psalm's ancient poetry, the tour will feature spoken word performances, vivid historical teaching and Peter's trademark madcap energy.
