Merz aka Conrad Lambert has a life as unorthodox as his music. He began his travels at 18, after his schooling in West Yorkshire, and has made friends in 48 countries. His parents live in Mongolia, his grandmother was born in Babylon (Long Island that is). He's currently settled in Bristol, where, distanced from the industry, he writes his curious music.' NME

'A maverick with three decades of cultural exploring behind him, Conrad Lambert is a post-pop auteur with a distinctive croaky voice and oodles of left-field ideas.’ UNCUT

‘In the airbrushed teen market, he might be deemed no oil painting, but to the trained eye he resembles Vincint Van Gogh. Lend him your ears.’ EVENING STANDARD

'Merz makes unique, untainted music that's a hurricane of fresh air' cd of the week, The Independent

Jacob Golden is a singer, guitarist and songwriter from California, who makes music suffused with big and complicated emotions in small, friendly spaces. Most of his tours grow organically, their bespoke itineraries designed in response to audience requests via Myspace. Last year he toured the East Coast of America, playing ‘living room shows’ in the front rooms of fans to no more than 40 people at a time. ‘But you make an unbelievable, lifelong connection with those people.’

This Spring he’s coming to get close to his fans in the UK and Ireland. ‘I enjoy the possibilities of electronics’ Golden says. ‘But the foundation of my musicality, and what enchants me in music generally is atmosphere. A good record is a document of an experience, of people playing and listening in a room.’
