Sterling Press

Sterling Press are an alternative four-piece band based in London. Having played under different guises for as long as memory serves, the band is comprised of Ed Higgins (guitar, vocals), Greg Smith (guitar, vocals), Marlon Reynier (bass, vocals) and Lucien Ismael (drums). Built on the foundations of a classic rock band, Sterling Press are dynamic in their musicianship and thrive in experimentation. Drawing on other influences from punk, ska and techno music, the lads produce horn-fuelled indie classics that you won’t forget in a hurry.

Formed in the spring of 2020 and at the dawn of one relentless pandemic, a fresh-faced Sterling Press had a hell of a lot of time to get stuck into writing and recording. Having grown up together in Hanwell, West London, the band spent the best part of adolescence playing to a multitude of sticky-floored grassroots stages across the UK.

Now on an upward trajectory, the London locals have been working night and day on compelling future releases. With talks of a debut album well underway and keen to get back to gigging as soon as pandemically possible, 2021 is set to be a big one for the Londoners.

Sterling Press' debut single Very Fun Times is out now and available on all major streaming platforms.

Bedside Manners

Originally forming as a 3 piece back in 2015 under a different name, current members Ben Coles, Dan Vagianos and Ethan Tyler laid the foundations for what was to come.

After going through line up changes and a lot of growth in ability, Bedside Manners was officially born in early 2017 the finished line up comprising of Ben Coles, Dan Vagianos, Ethan Tyler, James Green and John Carter.

Making their first single debut on the 1st May 2017 with 'The Light', the band showed influences ranging from legends such as the Stone Roses to new wave bands like The 1975. The song was met with a great reception gaining a play on BBC Introducing Merseyside and earning them spots supporting the likes of Little Triggers and The Jjohns.

Following on from that success, the band spent the next year gigging around Merseyside, Leeds, Sheffield and Manchester supporting the likes of Childcare and Grafton Ash. The success of these gigs and their next two singles 'Pace' and 'In My Head' earned the band their first local headline gig under Scruff of the Neck, which again was met with a great response.

After releasing their self funded EP on the 17th August 2018 and their latest single 'Run & Hide', the band is on an upward trajectory. Now very much comfortable in their sound the vibrant five piece are turning heads with their soaring melodies and their distinctive solos. For a band still only in their infancy, Bedside Manners are laying the way for what they won’t be afraid to assure you is a future filled with global success.

Beth (lead vocals), Lizzie (vocals and keyboard), Lok (lead guitar), Kaja (bass) and May (drums) are known collectively as Before 10 and have been playing together for two months. They describe themselves as an ‘all-girl band’, who create Indie flavoured sounds and look to Blondie, Courteeners and ABBA for inspiration. Before 10 recently played a Canteen Session at Loreto’s weekly lunchtime showcase. Keep an eye out for their shows, they’re worth checking out.
