Performer Wine-Tasting Guide

Matthew Guy Ibbs sings wryly humorous songs about love, loss, and betrayal, occasionally veering into lingerie and lipgloss advice for the newly-solo man. There are notes of Pearl Jam, Eels, and he is occasionally accused of being Alternative.

Paul Hooker of Razor Fly draws on Audioslave, Hendrix and Foo Fighters, with infectious riff-based guitar-work, and slight return.

Matt Pryor is hard to pin to any one genre, but his music is at times reminiscent of early Bowie, with elements of prog-rock, Ozzy-era synth, The Kinks and The Doors. Slightly acidic, with psychedelic undertones.

Leila Zuleika Williams brings the soul with an amazing voice that wouldn’t be out of place opening a James Bond film. With hints of Adele, Pink and Amy Winehouse, her voice will bring you to your knees.

Chris Parr is a saucy little vintage with trappings of The Lightning Seeds to his vocal stylings, occasionally veering into Manic Street Preachers territory.
