REMEECE

Our beloved Jamaican musician and rapper , best known for his freestyle to Jay Z and R. Kelly's song The Best of Both Worlds - changed to "Don't Tek Di Vaccine". Remeece  has appeared at numerous medical freedom  protests in the United Kingdom and his outreach protest to secondary schools in the UK shot him to notoriety in the movement. Remeece's work has been featured on Sky News, The Sun, Yahoo! News, and Metro, as well as performing with Piers Corbyn.

We are so excited to have Remeece with us this year at Sounds Beautiful as one of our Saturday night headliners!



THE DAZ BAND 


Meet the Daz Boys...

Gary wants be a part of a movement that takes everyone into consideration. To spread a message of togetherness and hope. That we can once again believe in a brighter future and no longer be fearful of a world we are raising our children in.

Phil is the old man of the band ..he’s been involved with include cult 90s band The Acrobats of Sa and its offshoot, e-god, and more recently, the singer/songwriter Linda Campbell.he’s had an inherent mistrust of authority and the system. These days, he’s very excited to be a part of not only this project but also of his health and ancestral awareness project, The Human Unleashed and his esteemed colleagues there with whom he co-authored their new book, The Red Pill Revolution

Daz is a a committed activist for truth, justice and freedom for the individual everywhere.

At the end of 2013, Darren wrote the now worldwide protest anthem ‘We are the 99%’ aka 'Stick your new world order up your arse', which has fired the movement and found new life since 2020. In September 2020, he launched The Light truthpaper (https://thelightpaper.co.uk), a national publication free to the reader, and it's developing into a vital outlet for the truth

Kirk (The Kirkinator) is our incredible lead guitarist, hailing from Southport in Lancashire. Born in 1991, the baby of the band at 31 says he took command of the guitar from the age of 9, and it wasn’t long before it became a part of his being - an extension of his soul! Playing numerous sessions and gigs in the music industry for two thirds of his life, Kirk has also worked in luthiery and electronics, building guitars, amps and pedals, and helps produce the band's sound.

VICTORIOUS

Victorious is very well known 9 piece band in Brighton and whole South Coast (if not UK). England land of freedom, thanks to Magna Carta. They are, probably, the most cancelled band in history and "Brighton's biggest freedom fighter band, raising the vibe and bringing some much needed joy to these times". Victorious, is "a self funded band dedicated to bringing up the vibe and maybe a bit of extra joy into the world. The second most cancelled/de-platformed band in Brighton!" 

We caught them at Jam for Freedom festival where in spite of having no stage they gave an outstanding performance and got the whole crowd into a frenzy of excitement ...not to be missed ! 

MATT HOY 

It’s a bold move when a member of a legendary group releases a solo project. But UB40 featuring Ali Campbell and Astro’s former vocalist Matt Hoy  took  the plunge with his debut album. Don’t worry – he pulled it off with aplomb.

Matt has been on a massive journey since he was forced to leave  the band over his medical choices and now forges his own solo career whilst promoting the freedom cause. 

"He has that rich, expressive tone that’s often lacking from some artists. I’m not one for comparisons, of which this is not. But you can hear Hoy was influenced by George Michael, and this is in no way a bad thing. His ability to switch between a rounded, Soulful horizontal embouchure and a more pointed vertical one shows the depth of thought that goes into every word. Throughout the album his phrasing and use on intonation is perfect. Hoy is a quality vocalist; intuitively so."

Matt Hoy: Touch review – Steve Topple for Pauzeradio.com.

Singing his own awesome reggae tunes he brings the flavour of the reggae scene with him and we are so chuffed to have him headline our Friday night.  

HOLLOWBONE

THE WELL

The Well are a trio of creative spirits with very different artistic and cultural backgrounds who have formed an enthusiastic and sympathetic friendship making music they describe as alt-folk. 

 Initially put together for a single event, through recommendation and word of mouth they continue to play together and have been organically building their sound and repertoire around the original songs of their main writer Rich Hale.  

Rich is a sometime member of the chill out group Kinobe, while Philip Starnier and Stummer have enjoyed successful and rewarding careers in acting and contemporary dance respectively before returning to their own musical roots.

INDIGO VEIL


Sometime around 1962 Gustav Clarkson saw the Beatles playing 'Love Me Do' on top of the pops. Upon finding her son listening to such ghastly modern music or 'jazz music' as she labelled anything outside of her classical interests, his mother quickly turned off the TV and made sure that her sons' Viola practise was no longer tarnished with such 'worldly concerns'.


Fast forward to 2007 and a 17 year old Orlando Clarkson quietly began playing bass guitar in an alternative rock group, making sure not to tell his Viola playing father, who he was quite sure would be left wanting upon hearing this new 'musical' project. 10 year later, after having played bass and singing in bands with influences ranging from hard rock to chet baker jazz, Orlando finally began his own project.


Finding his fellow musicians busy with other projects, Orlando began fulfilling all the roles of a traditional band himself. Through the challenge of being a bassist, guitarist and singer all at once, a unique live experience was formed...


Orlando could be found round the Sounds Beautiful fire last year and is one of our biggest supporters , we are delighted to have him as we go national ....

MICHAEL DE SOUZA

Michael De Souza is not just a rapper; by his own admission he is an  oracle of the metaphysical, a guide through the cosmic corridors of consciousness. 

Drawing from ancient wisdom and modern philosophy, he fuses the teachings of sages with the beats of the street. The conscious rapper's rhymes serve as a bridge between the esoteric and the everyday, inviting a harmonious coexistence of spiritual truths in the hustle and bustle of urban life. 

The beats accompanying Michael De Souza's verses are not merely rhythms; they are frequencies set to the vibrations of 432hz. All of Michael’s music is truly organic, he produces all his beats/instrumentals, and records/mixes independently! 

He encourages the listener to break free from the chains of materialism and societal conditioning as he challenges the status quo, inspiring a collective awakening that transcends cultural boundaries. 

In a world often overshadowed by superficiality, Michael De Souza emerges as a beacon of light, a conscious and spiritual rapper whose artistry is not just heard but felt. Through the power of rhyme and rhythm, they invite all who listen to embark on a transformative journey—a journey into the sacred corridors of the self.

RED LIGHT


With brand new and pre-loved songs of hope and despair, anger and joy, optimism and resilience: Red Light means STOP! And listen...


Psy (double bass guy - Psy being short for “Psychobilly Si”,and Caff (violin/viola/accordion and vocals, occasional foot-tambourine, mainly responsible for arrangements) attended, in their youth, the same secondary school, in south west Wiltshire - although they didn’t actually know each other back then, being an academic year apart. 

Caff had been playing in bands (various styles and sizes), and recording original material, with Gouldy (acoustic guitar and vocals, does most of the song-writing) for some years - and they had discovered fairly near the beginning of their collaboration that they had a similarly sceptical outlook. So, when Psy suggested a hook-up, and Caff put the idea to Gouldy, and Gouldy said, “Why not?” (he had seen Psy play in one of his bands, prior to this), what began as meeting up for a beer or two soon morphed into, “Why don’t we do some tunes together?”

All three had already envisaged, during those dark early days, a time of no pubs, no music venues, and even no electricity; so the ability to play music totally acoustically, with a high degree of portability, had a certain appeal at the time. Still does…

Hard to describe what Red Light plays (Folkabilly? Pskachobilly? Nothing quite seems to cover it): but all three like all sorts - soul, ska, punk, new wave, psychobilly, garage, folk musics (deliberate plural), baroque, classical, romantic…and much more besides, and most of it sneaks an appearance somewhere along the line in the set. Basically, if at least two out of three feel it’s a good song, it gets given a bash…!
