MATILDAZ are a band erupting on the underground music scene in London. Matilda (lead vocals) has picked up many influences on her travels and her deep powerful voice envelops, carrying you away to another place. The songs tell stories of past, present and future.  African, Rock & Blues influences establish her musical foundations. Strong inspirations range from Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone & Rosetta Tharpe to Radiohead, Pixies & Led Zeppelin.
Over the years Matilda has performed in Europe and Asia to large audiences. She has provided vocals for artists both signed and unsigned. Her performance at The Royal Festival Hall in July 2011 was greatly received for The London Vintage Festival, in 2012 The 1234 Festival in London and in 2013 MATILDAZ rocked the stage at Wilderness, Green Man and End of the Road festivals.

Having spent a busy 2013 opening shows ahead of performances by the likes of Olly Murs, Jessie J, Lawson, JLS, Electric Six, Union J. Farra (Formerly Joywride) are set for their own O2 Academy UK Tour following the band’s sudden appearance on the music-media’s radar and being tipped as ‘Ones To Watch’. With their soaring hooks and glam looks, Farra are looking to redecorate the charts with real panache. Not ones for understatement, they are proving to be one of the most dynamic live acts to emerge from London's underground in years. With a mix of classic-styled pop and a well-groomed fashionista charm, they are poised to take center stage at the forefront of pop music.

The Watermelons
The group have amazed audiences across the South Coast of England and they have been a recurring image at prestigious venues across UK. The success they have had at these venues is due largely to the outstanding original material and catchy songs such as, “Wait” and “Garden Path”. Their live performances are a contrast between professionalism and naivety that gives them a charm everyone will fall for. In 2011 The Watermelons toured Germany in support of their video “Dancing with the Wrong One” which achieved over 30,000 views within a week and rated number 4 in the MTV download charts amongst the likes of Rihanna, The Kills and Kanye West. Following their German tour The Watermelons played the main support at Rock En Stock Festival in France, as well as a number of festivals back in UK. "De la British pop par excellence!!" - Rock en Stock, France.
"Brilliant Band" - Alex James, Blur
"These boys are seriously talented" - Tom Odell
