Inspired greatly by childhood memories of the West Coast of Scotland, Cal Raasay is the moniker of a songwriter, composer and producer from Northumberland. The name 'Cal Raasay' is (in part) a reference to the story of 'Calum's Road' on the Isle of Raasay. Through the music, Cal seeks to immerse the listener within rich atmospheric tracks that move between melancholy and menace.

Golden Dregs is the chameleon-esque musical project of the baritone and enigmatic Benjamin Woods, sometimes appearing as a one-man karaoke show, and others as a full band with a rotating cast of friends and musicians. It has been described as “Stirs with a lonesome soul and sense of mournful vulnerability that’ll give you chills” The 405 and “Minimalist guitar pop hewn from the notepad of Lou Reed, Jonathan Richman, or Robyn Hitchcock.” Clash Magazine

Simon Taylor has been crafting stylistically diverse songs, for well over a decade now, he has a love of Latin music and culture and this is reflected in much of his music.
