More Info

Gabriel Moreno is a Gibraltarian singer-songwriter who has thrilled audiences across South America, USA and Europe. He has been championed by the likes of BBC 6 Music’s Cerys Matthews, and has regaled audiences at Wilderness, The Great British Folk Festival and Purbeck Valley Folk Festival. His sonorous baritone and poetical lyrics have earned him comparisons to such luminary wordsmiths as Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave and Bill Callahan.

An irresistibly engaging performer, he combines a Latin exuberance and passion with a rare lyrical calibre (an accomplished poet, he has published 12 books to date).  Performing on nylon string guitar and accompanied by pianist Ned Cartwright, he creates a live experience that has been described as ”Taberna Folk” - energetic and intimate, anarchic and absorbing.

Moreno won the Introducing Stage at the Great British Folk Festival in 2019. He released his third album, Wound in the Night, in 2023.

“The songs tread a path between Folk, Latin and cabaret torch song. . . a blend of Leonard Cohen, Peter Sarstedt, and dare I say it, Rex Harrison.”

Trevor Raggart, RNR magazine.

"An offshoot of Leonard Cohen and Neil Diamond - I love it!"

Cerys Matthews, BBC 6 Music.

Simon Tilbury is a Brighton-based acoustic singer-songwriter whose songs are packed with lyrical experiment and emotional intensity. He has performed under many names and guises, but has now decided to drop all the masks. Confessional and oblique, honest and stylized, imagine the spirits of Nick Drake, Leonard Cohen, and dark-leaning indie alternative blending together, and you will be close to the tone of his songs. His most recent album, the volcano diaries, was released in 2023 under the name ‘murnau in silver’.
