Ciara Lindsey AKA Kynsy, understands the unique romance of isolation. The freedom of writing, arranging and producing each track herself has given the singer a sense of control and self sufficiency that has enabled her to focus on the minutiae of every song. She has developed her own songwriting rules that have given her the ability to experiment, push her own boundaries and avoid being pigeonholed into any one genre. Her music moves from the metallic lurch of a nightclubbing Iggy Pop, the icy cool of St. Vincent to the futurism of Julian Casablancas’ solo output.

Local Boy is a musician, producer and singer from Dublin and the co-founder of the musical collective Burner Records. In December 2019 he released his EP 'Local Boy Ruins Everything', writing, producing and mixing the entirety of the five track project which tells indie infused tales of everyday mundanity and dreams of rock 'n' roll stardom. Local Boy has recently been featured on some high profile Spotify playlists such as "Lo-Fi Indie" and currently has 30,000 monthly listeners.
