Influenced at a formative age by the passion and integrity of Irish folk icons such as Damien Dempsey and the contemporary indie/rock sound of bands like Snow Patrol, Oscar Blue is an emerging artist with a passion for storytelling.

Invoking an unsuspectingly familiar sense of belonging, attachment and nostalgia, Oscar’s songwriting transports listeners to some other place or feeling, meditating on his experience of life in an instinctively honest and uninhibited style.

Following a run of debut singles in 2018, recorded on a shoestring budget in a small home recording studio, Oscar’s sound evolved to incorporate soaring guitar riffs, meandering soundscapes and spell-binding bass and percussive elements. This new direction culminated in the release of his debut EP, Backyard Mafia, which lead the Co. Clare native to landing national radio play, supports slots with internationally acclaimed acts such as Kodaline and KAWALA, and even sold out headline shows in Dublin and London.

“Each track’s poetic lyrics, textures and tones [are] enhanced by Oscar’s mesmerising vocals. His passionate earworms are a joy.”

Since their debut in 2020, Bristol based singer and producer Purpl has worked tirelessly to establish herself within the world of alt-pop. With notable collaborators including Sky Adams (Kylie Minogue, Doja Cat), Lostboy (Tiesto) and Paul Stanborough (Janet Jackson, Tina Turner), Purpl has developed a unique sound that blends cinematic pop with soulful R&B elements and vulnerable lyrics.

Championed by the likes of BBC Radio 1 and BBC Introducing, Purpl has since headlined BBC Introducing Live, performed at Bristol Takeover, performed live on BBC Radio Solent for international women’s day and is set to perform at 110 Above Festival this year.
