About the Artists
DRONNINGEN is the creation of Beatrice Bonnano (vocals/guitar) and Vito Cerasia (lead guitar), both originally from Italy who met in South-East London in 2014, where they are still based.
Since uniting their energy, craft and imagination, the duo has bred an electro-pop/rock fuelled sound which has been eagerly welcomed around the globe, the pair playing numerous festivals and TV shows in the likes of the UK, Sweden, France and India.
Since releasing the ‘Carry on Dancing’ EP in their first year, the twosome has persistently evolved their music and its fertile imagination. It has a richness and miscellany which defiantly defies that simple electro-pop/rock tagging creating a proposal which uses its audience’s body as a plaything, hungrily enticing and manipulating them into unleashing inhibition freed instincts.
Yet equally, it bears a snarl and breath of defiance led by fuzz fired guitars which stokes the flames of thought and emotional reaction.
Insatiably uncaging high-energy temptation and devilish incitement, DRONNINGEN’s sound has similarly marked out the band’s inimitable live shows, their inescapable spirit enlivening voracity matched across acclaimed releases such as 2016’s ‘Royal Riot’ EP and its successor the following year, the ‘Sugarbox’ EP.
Now as evolution continues to spark greater passion and invention, DRONNINGEN uncage new single ‘Theatrical Love’, a song which burrows deep, strings limbs like a puppeteer and contagiously roars with ravening uniqueness.
It is typical individual DRONNINGEN and equally another atypical incitement for the world from Beatrice and Vito, an invitation to proudly uncage the real you and dance!

Sabrina Kennedy’s showstopping vocals reached UK and US tv this year via syncs for her anthemic song ‘Hold Tight’ on Love Island and TOWIE. Her big hitting songs address the divine feminine, strength in adversity, and bold sexuality. Born of Bajan and American heritage, she was adopted and raised in Salem, Massachusetts ,a town whose legacy of witchcraft echoes through her music. If the dramatic comes naturally to Kennedy, that’s because her life already reads like a novel: she met her birth mother for the first time live on TV, following her appearance on MTV’s ’Real World’.
“I make noise for the misunderstood ,for people who feel they don’t belong. I make noise for women. We’ve been burnt at the stake for centuries” Sabrina Kennedy, Bricks magazine 2021
Allison Mareek is a multicultural singer and songwriter. Descendent of Mediterranean immigration blended with a French grandmother and upbringing, she came of age while living in Israël and developed a love for diversity in cultures and people. Now based in London, where she has found a true melting pot that mirrors her own roots, she’s weaving these influences into a sound that is both familiar and unique. A sound where soulful melodies meet jazz standards, ear-catching blue notes, and a minimalist pop production – blending as many different colors and routes as the ones that have dotted her storyline so far.
Phoebie Rix is a young singer song writer from South East London who found her love of music as a form of escapism from the darker natures of the world as a young girl, who now strives to share her experiences with mental health and history of abuse to spread awareness, bring comfort and sense of belonging and relevance to those who feel alone.

Actor, writer, poet and god knows what else…
Jazzi Sirius is a singer/ songwriter, poet and rapper from Camden Town – best known for her storytelling abilities and unapologetic energy both on and off stage.
Not ‘just a rapper’ and not ‘just a singer’, her story is one of stripping, pirates, malaria, mental health, the fashion industry, the rich, the poor and a whole lot more. A wealth of experience & influences from which she draws clever lyricism & social commentary alongside catchy melodies, bass-y breakdowns & undeniable BARS.
Captivating audiences in Ibiza whilst homeless, battling with mental health and living in the forest between 2016 – 2018, she since came back to the UK to find her sound. She started rapping in Lockdown & hasn’t looked back; co-producing an album of ‘Ethereal Trap’ tracks with DJ/ Producer Mark Fox set to be released throughout the year.

Ever-shifting environments, constantly (r)evolving juxtapositions of experience, are recurring themes in much of Chisara Agor’s art. It’s a fitting focus for her expansive, multidisciplinary practice, which originates in part from her creative education at a local theatre. From a young age, Agor learned to act, sing, play, dance and write simultaneously (not to mention her extensive visual output). The storytelling and theatrical elements present in their music are drawn from a philosophical enquiry and desire to create works that inspire conversation, reflection, and critique. From society, to politics, to how we find joy, Chisara’s work is as much about the world around them as it is their own personal interpretation of it. With an upcoming EP Shadows and Searchlights arriving next Spring, Chisara continues to write with a melting pot of sounds and textures. West African percussion, jazz, hip hop, bossa nova, indie rock, easy listening and dub-inspired elements surface through her music along with spoken word, delicate harmonies and lyricism that invites audiences to sit and listen.
SARAH L KING
Sarah L King is a jazz vocalist, composer & songwriter. Her love of singing in gospel, jazz & soul choirs led her to emerge as a solo artist, and she has formed her own quintet, who regularly play on the London circuit. She has released an EP and several singles, and is currently working on her first original album. Sarah’s dad was a jazz trumpeter & her own songs are influenced by jazz standards as well as funk & neo soul.
EFA SUPER TRAMP
Efa Supertramp is a Welsh folk-punk grrrl who comes armed with an acoustic guitar and a powerful voice. She regularly tours across Europe – appearing at festivals, bars, squats, venues, living rooms and street corners to perform her songs. Originally from North Wales and now based in London, Efa sings in both English and Welsh and has been shouting about the world’s wrongs in one form or another since she started her bilingual punk band The Stilletoes at the age of 15.
Her first solo album Rhyddid Yw Y Freuddwyd (Freedom is the Dream) was released in 2015 and saw her touring the songs extensively across the UK and Europe, frequenting autonomous and political spaces as well as independent venues. She’s been honing her craft since then, culminating in a second album recorded during the pandemic lockdown coming out in autumn 2020, along with her first short-run vinyl 7” release. Her catalogue of works are self-released and self-funded.
Whether it’s the DIY attitude of the punk scene, the powerful female voices of Riot Grrrl, the socialist beliefs of many of her fellow Welsh-speakers or the anarchistic spirit of folk music’s nomads – it can all be found in Efa’s music and activities. Efa’s songs are angry but uplifting; railing against money, power and greed whilst having a zest for life and freedom. Her anger at an unjust world is combined with constructive solutions and hope for a better future. Those who fought for equality in previous generations – showing that protest music is far from dead.
Hannah is an applied theatre practitioner and spoken word artist. Advocating mental health wellness, her writing and performances challenge audiences to take a rain check on their unconscious bias and stigma.
