Line Up

THE ISLE OF CC brings an ambient and compelling sound to whisk the listener away on an adventure. Influenced by Erykah Badu, Flying Lotus and Lapsley, she combines original lyrics, electronic neo-soul goodness and distinctive harmonies. Born and bred in Milton Keynes, CC (aka Serena Robb) grew up with a passion for dance and musical theatre. Encouraged by her music loving parents, who regularly inspired her with duets at local churches, she took part in multiple amateur productions and performed covers at local events. While finding her signature sound, and continuing to build a following, she transformed into the sassy unicorn we have today, eventually creating her own music to become… The Isle of CC.

She worked with the talented Pandaux and Ollie Foreman on her debut EP called Agoraphobia. Her EP Release show was February 22nd 2017 at the Brunswick where the physical copies were released.

Since the release of her EP she has supported Leah McFall runner up on The Voice UK, for her for 'INK' tour. Sung at Isle Of Wight, headlined the Night Garden Festival and had a Live BBC Introducing Session with Melita Dennett. In addition to this her debut single 'Losing' was aired on BBC Radio 1 Huw Stephens show May 5th 2017.

Out Jan 26th 2018 'Listen' combines tight electronic beats with funky guitars and sassy vocal melodies, providing soulful listening to kick the winter blues! Sit back, listen and enjoy the ride.

Alongside her on the journey is Ish Hussein aka (DJ Seanons), Libby Sharland (aka Basically My Girlfriend) and Chloe Pamplin (aka Angus)

The only question is, where will The Isle of CC take you?

Writing since her pre-teens, the artist known in a former incarnation as Stanza makes keenly observed, socially aware flow seem effortless. Using both a very British sensibility with her lyrics and her own voice, there’s familiarity, homeliness, realness.

These are modern stories for modern ears. Since propelling herself into the UK Hip Hop consciousness in 2010 with Chapter & Verse, Bobbie has been busying herself with expanding her sound, constantly writing and recording. Rather than stay pigeonholed and replicate past glories, she is constantly evolving, staying ahead of limits. All peaks and troughs, emotional twists and turns, this is the sound of an artist ahead of trend and fashion; fusing influence with abstract, re-imagined ideas, new forms.

Bobbie Johnson will make you totally re-evaluate your conceptions of female rappers, fuck, she’ll make you question whatever you thought you knew about hip hop full stop.

Brighton Singer/Songwriter Taylor Barker's music adventures. The La Plage songstress blessing the room with her silky pop songs, filling the air with good feelings and good vibes. “Writing music is like therapy”. She uses her lyrics to convey the deep, intricate side to her otherwise private existence. Though her songs still remain ambiguous. Her metaphoric writing style enables listeners to interpret her lyrics subjectively, without leaving her directly exposed; “My lyrics are personal, but I want people to have their own connection with the lyrics, instead of telling them how to feel”.
