CHERITON is the new indie pop solo music project from Nick Harrison. The Kent-born, London-based, singer-songwriter combines sparking synths and vibrant melodies on top of classic drum machine loops to create an undeniably infectious guitar-pop sound. In 2020 CHERITON humbly received critical applause from TLOBF, EARMILK, BBC Radio 1 Jack Saunders, BBC Introducing Abbie McCarthy, AtWood Magazine, Wonderland, & CLASH Music.
“Heaps of potential for his contemporary and yet simultaneously timeless indie-pop” – EARMILK

Michael Sebastian improvises organic dance music.
His music has the structure of modern electronic; the freedom of jazz, and the depth of world music. Sebastian’s work is centred around improvisation, collaboration, and powerful live experiences.
He developed his craft playing on the streets of London, and after releasing ‘Kayanda’ in 2018, busked his way back from Berlin, surviving through music.
Years of playing on the street have enabled him to perform in any setting: Raves. Festivals. Sofar Sounds. Gigs. Club Nights. Somerset House and the V&A. Meditation & Sound Healing. Contemporary Dance. Applied Imagination.
