A singer, writer, visionary and then some Bianca genre hops from Pop, R&B, Soul to Dance. She has toured the world as a backing vocalist for UK music royalty Heather Small, performed at the London Olympics 2012 handpicked by London's prestigious Roundhouse and been play-listed on BBC Radio. Bianca's debut work 'The Butterfly EP' was released in 2014 (which she wrote and recorded the vocals for). Her follow up EP 'Feelings' is already garnering industry support with BBC Introducing's Alan Raw propelling it into the radio stratosphere and naming her as one of BBC Introducing's 2019 ‘Ones To Watch’!

With an impressive 500,000 combined YouTube plays and an ever growing and dedicated following, Bianca is definitely in this for the long haul and with the amazing support of PRS For Music Foundation the only way is up.

Nicole Raymond (NikNak)


Nicole Raymond (NikNak) is a DJ/Turntablist & Sound Artist who specializes in playing a wide range of eclectic music genres in her performances. One goal of hers is to continue developing the role and general perception of a DJ/Turntablist by incorporating self-recorded soundscapes and multi-channel performances. She brings her experience in DJ-ing and wide musical knowledge across into each of her sets from continually incorporating a wide array of genres, to experimenting with new mixing and scratching techniques.

Before becoming a DJ, NikNak primarily worked as a music producer previously named SinSam, and occasionally dabbles in production whenever she can. NikNak is also a qualified live and studio sound engineer. Having graduated with a degree in Music Technology and Innovation from DMU in 2013, NikNak has also studied an MA in Electronic and Computer Music at the University of Leeds. She has taught students at MAP (Music and Arts Production), The DJ School and Lifeforce Productions. Previously she has worked with Pedestrian, Dreaming In Colour Productions and 2FunkyArts in Leicester. She believes that music and its creation or manipulation should be continually pushed to further people’s imaginations, both as audience members and performers.

Simeon Walker (Composer)


Following a decade working as a musician, UK-based pianist & composer Simeon Walker has quickly emerged as a leading light in the burgeoning Modern Classical scene in his own right, following the release of his EP Preface (2016) and his debut full length album Mono (November 2017). Following this, 2018 saw him complete a successful 8-date European Tour; receive significant radio airplay across BBC Radio 3, 6 Music, World Service & BBC Introducing shows nationwide; and performed at Latitude Festival, whilst collaborating with other musicians and artists and working towards a follow up album and continued touring. 

With three consecutive Official Piano Day playlist features and numerous glowing reviews from across the music world, Walker’s calm, introspective piano instrumentals invite the listener to find stillness and beauty as much in the spaces between the notes as the notes themselves, as musical stories are woven with each tender, intimate performance.
