BBC Merseyside, BBC Radio Ulster and Express FM. Motel Sundown will release their debut album this summer.
Buffalo Riot were formulated with the symbiotic harmony of songwriters Ben Singleton and Iain Morley. Giant guitar washes from a pioneering Paul Carroll gives a Jazz inspired lap steel sound, subtly and grooves bring it all together.

Award winning singer-songwriter, Katie Nicholas, quickly gained recognition for her self produced music videos as well as captivating audiences on the live stage with her intricate lyrics and skilful Americana cross-picking.
Her musical journey began after uploading her debut music video “Chemistry” at seventeen which went viral on Youtube, landing her a music award sponsored by the Mayor of Liverpool, leading to regional BBC airplay and a no.1 in the Hotdisc Country Chart. Katie went on to perform at C2C Festival, London Bush Hall, and release her first album “Dizzy”. The campaign generated such a buzz that her CD pre-order gifts sold out on first batch!
More recently, Katie visited Abbey Road Studios and Blackbird Studio in Nashville TN to begin recording her second album. While she was there, she performed at an AMA showcase alongside singer-songwriter friend, Robert Vincent. Upon returning Katie decided it was time to try her hand at self-producing, using the studio stems in a way where she could achieve the sound she sought after. After many years of lessons and challenges, big moves (to London and back) and losses, Katie’s catalogue of songs naturally grew and is now overflowing.
In 2022 Katie aims to share her all stories and songs with the world again. With a recent feature on the SSL 2 advert, and artist an endorsement with Aston Microphones, Auden Guitars and Blackstar Amps, there is plenty of interest buzzing around her musical projects and online content. She’s now ready to share the stage with friends Megan Louise and Eleanor Nelly for the Americana Angels.
“Fresh as a mountain stream, Katie’s music is sheer delight.” – Country Music People Magazine
“One thing that’s clear from Katie’s work is that it has been meticulously crafted with love and the utmost attention to every slight aspect of its inception. This results in a collective so consistently impeccable it’s only surpassed by the fact this accomplished young lady exerts creative control over all aspects of her music single-handedly.” Hotvox
“Katie Nicholas shows people the right way to make waves as an indie artist.”
