The acoustic side of this multitalented rock diva!
Nicolette Street is a versatile artist, always ready to push the boundaries and willing to try new approaches with her music. During previous Under The Radar sessions she has been accompanied by her full band, The Revs, and always delivered an impressive and full-on live session. This time round, she came on her own, armed with her guitar and her piano, and performed two acoustic stripped back songs, accompanied by each of her instruments respectively.
Nicolette has a full and rich voice which covers a wide range of musical styles, from the raunchier side of rock, to the more gentle and soulful ballads. This session was about the latter and demonstrated her versatility as a performer and a song-writer.
Nicolette has a very busy year ahead with full band gigs, a string of solo acoustic performances, and some appearances in Europe lined up. She is also working on new tracks with a selection of different producers which include working on dance remixes of some of her existing material as well as brand new compositions.

Taken from their excellent debut EP, this is a full-on energy packed number with anthemic choruses, screaming guitars and pulsating bass! The Raba boys at their very best!
Introducing this young troubadour from Birmingham, Jacob Banks is 20 years old, yet he sings and comes across like someone who has been in the music business all his life! A truly explosive, tight and magnificent song which is guaranteed to have you shaking your thang long into your day!
A magnificent blend of infectious classical infused British pop and with very clever instrumentation and supreme vocals by this multitalented artist who also happens to be an accomplished actor. A fresh, inspiring and extremely likable sound.
From Seattle in north-west USA comes this magnificent songstress. This song has it all, supreme vocals, infectious choruses and fantastic arrangements!
Based in London, this trio’s songs are melodic and fresh. Ginger Tea, as its name implies, is a refreshing blend of soulful acoustic sounds led by Abimaro’s dulcet tones.
Another full-on number which kicks off with a Shadows delayed-guitar intro quickly followed by some magnificent lead vocals and an explosion of infectious choruses adorned with intricate synths. This London-based band have just released their brand new EP “This City” which features the song in question. A must-have collection of songs which will not disappoint!
Dreamy start with gentle keys and melodic vocals, slowly blending glorious choruses and harmonies which explode into an epic wall of delicious anthemic chants, this is a truly original, memorable and breathtaking number masterfully produced which will have you humming it long after you have finished listening!
