Sam Clague is a singer songwriter and producer from Cork, Ireland. His songs are driven by intricate guitar arrangements that echo the sounds of 60s bossa nova and 70s folk while a soft and melancholy voice melodically weaves its way around it.
The Loafing Heroes (Live Band)
The Loafing Heroes are a cosmopolitan, morphing, dream-folk band based in Lisbon. They have just released their sixth album this month called “meandertales”. The project conveys a subversive idea of ‘loafing’ (in slowness, wandering, and perhaps even as an art of living and seeing). The band’s vision of entanglement, transformation, and subversive joy responds to the technological overload and ecological catastrophe of our troubled times.
Joao Canedo (Live Band)
“Guitarist and composer João Canedo is on the way to his fifth album of original songs after his albums “Horas” from 2011, “O Trabalho da Formiga” and “Tentar Custa” from 2012, and “Gosto do Teu Ar”, 2016. Influenced by traditional music, Canedo evokes an emotional language in his songs and stands out for exploring the guitar in a unique way.”- Portuguese newspaper ‘Jornal de Notícias ’
João Canedo presents himself in two formats, either with a band, together with Ricardo Martins on the bass and Amaro Machado on the drums, and other vocal artists every now and then, or acting solo.
