‘Waltzz had an extremely musical upbringing, this is where he developed his love of music, he began submerging himself solely in the creative art and technicalities of it, this naturally progressed him into beginning to write and record his own music. The huge prominence of Eminem and Shady Records upon his teenage years influenced him, and introduced him to his first love, rap music. Mixing this with Piano, he found his Niché. Creatively being led by these artists and others such as Professor Green, Drake and many pop figures he found his niche in the hybrid of Rap and Pop, Waltzz entered a local competition ‘Ipswich has Got Talent’ in 2013 and got his first taste of performing. He released his first EP ‘Heartless’ In 2013, and the supporting visuals of the project received just under 1,000 plays in the first day. Since then, he has been steadily releasing music videos and songs online for free download and developing his craft. His new project entitled ‘Its All Practice’, is scheduled for release early 2015. 2014 saw Waltzz begin to experiment with Piano as the main accompaniment to his aggressive delivery, this led to some interesting results. As well as this Waltzz co-produced and featured on Eagle’s release “Silver Lining”. He also Produced “Monsters”, an acoustic EP from singer/songwriter Kathleen Wash. With his love of infectious pop melodies, intelligent lyricism and raw emotion we cannot be more excited to see what this intriguing rap artist can produce next. Especially equipped with all these skills in his armoury. The best from Waltzz, is definitely yet to come
The Buccaneers are an acoustic band from Downham Market made up of the lead singer, Daisy, her dad Shane on the drums and their close friend Simon on guitar. They play various upbeat covers from Dolly Parton and Johnny Cash to Lily Allen, Paloma Faith and Kasabian! Simon and Shane had been in bands together at school and had lost contact over the years both getting married and having children. After bumping into each other again 2 years ago and discussing how they were both still jamming at home decided to get together once again. What started off as a bit of fun and maybe the possibility of busking, soon became a dozen decent sounding songs and the chance of a performance for a friends birthday. Then another gig at a local fair where Daisy was also performing as a solo artist. Daisy then suggested the possibility of singing with them and after a selection of old classics and modern songs the Buccaneers were born. A couple more gigs at friends and family parties then became a pub gig and then a wedding and now a calendar full of performances every weekend. “Almost every time we play we get booked for another at the end of the night” There vast range of high tempo covers is perfect for any occasion.
