More about Tom Mouse Smith…
Tom Mouse Smith is a 12 year old singer and songwriter from County Durham.. Already an accomplished guitarist, In his short career he has supported and played alongside James Bay and Catfish and the Bottlemen (three times), he has also supported Shed Seven and played to a full house in Tim Peaks Diner at Kendal Calling. His appearance at Glastonbury Festival resulted in him being described as one of the highlights of the Small stages by Neon Filler. Now with almost 17k Facebook followers he is a formidable social media presence. He made the national news in early 2017 for a politely worded letter rejecting the opportunity to go on Britains Got Talent. This summer he has already been confirmed to play at Liverpool Sound City, Kendal Calling, Deep South Festival and Festival No.6.
Tom has achieved so much in such a short time whilst living with the life limiting condition Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome which means he was born, and continues to function, with only half a working heart, but he doesn’t like to go on about it!
More about Lottie Jones
There is a sense of inevitability about the steady rise of Lottie Jones, an 18 year old singer songwriter from Exeter, Devon. Born into a home where touring musicians would come to stay over after gigs, from an early age Lottie would intently watch some of the industry’s finest artists jamming into the early hours, picking up guitar chords and vocal harmonies from them, and eventually joining in herself.
Lottie’s breathtaking vocals, combined with intimate, evocative lyrics written with a thoughtfulness which calls to mind artists like Daughter, Alela Diane and Joanna Newsom, have led to her supporting Irish platinum selling artist Gavin James, Craig Gallagher, Antonio Lulic, Brother & Bones and Canadian legends The Bros. Landreth.
Lottie’s natural stage presence is already charismatic, often humorous and self deprecating even when introducing songs of a deeply personal nature. Her video ‘Solivigant’, filmed at her exclusive ‘Loft Barbers Live’ session supporting Gavin James, garnered 8000 Facebook views in less than a week, and was given high praise by Joey Landreth, lead singer of The Bros. Landreth, who shared the video clip, calling it ‘Simply beautiful.’
