Latest ReBalance supported artists announced!
Huge congratulations to the first ReBalance supported artists of 2019 – LUNA, Lady Sanity and Martha Hill!
ReBalance is a pioneering 3 year programme which provides one week’s studio recording time to a core female band, female musician or female solo artist each month since 2018, until 2020, as well as accommodation and travel, all covered by Festival Republic. Alongside this, PRS Foundation supply a pool of high profile female producers who work with the artists and the team at the studio. Within two-years of their studio residency, these successful acts will gain a slot at a Festival Republic or Live Nation Festival.
Influenced by the likes of Kate Bush, Banks and FKA Twigs, LUNA has been labelled as ‘a rising star of the electronic pop scene’ (BidoLito!). Her classic vocal style paired with dark, glitch-esque production has earned her position as one of Liverpool International Music Festival Academy’s Top 3 ‘Most Ready’ Artists for 2018/19, and her story-telling lyrics with sample-infused electronic soundscapes has already received the Liverpool artists radio play from BBC Radio 6 Music and Amazing Radio.
Already set to perform at Wireless Festival this year, Lady Sanity is a welcome addition to ReBalance. The Birmingham rapper has received the GRM Daily Get Rated Award 2017 and the Birmingham Music Award for Best Solo Female Artist 2018, plus her hard-hitting flow with Grime, 90s Hip Hop & Jazz influences have gained her major recognition from BBC introducing WM, Radio 6, Radio 1 & 1xtra. In April of last year, Sanity travelled to Australia for the Commonwealth Games closing ceremony; representing her hometown in front of an estimated one billion as her live performance was broadcasted across the world.
A talented multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Martha Hill settled in the North East and began to write a series of hard-hitting alt-pop with a social conscience, drawing on the influence of left-field artists such as Little Dragon and Sylvan Esso. She has already supported artists such as Mahalia, Maximo Park and Let’s Eat Grandma, and her self-released debut singles ‘Spiders’ and ‘Wallflower’ were championed by The Line Of Best Fit, BBC6 Music, and Spotify Playlists.
