The success of this recording meant that EMI chose this song as an exclusive track to go on Cliff’s Christmas single “Santa’s List”, which reached number 5 In the UK’s Single Chart in December 2003.

Simon says: “Having been compared vocally to Cliff Richard almost my entire career, the highlight came in July 2010 where I finally got to share the stage with the great man himself singing ‘Miss you Nights’ at the Dorchester Hotel, London.

Some years previous, Cliff had shown an interest in a song from my debut album, called ‘Someone Else’. I revisited the song and re-wrote it in places specifically for him.

In 2010, Cliff recorded the song with Majella O’Donnell under its new title “He Knows She Knows” and it was released in October of that year on the album titled “By Request” – Majella O’Donnell It also appears as a featured track on my album “Collaborations” album 2011.”

Eli Lev

Rising singer-songwriter and global citizen Eli Lev is making the world a smaller place, one song at a time. Eli pens lyrics and melodies for everyday enlightenment—songs that resonate because they’re heartfelt, earthy, and offer the wisdom he’s gained through lifelong travel and self-discovery.

Vince Freeman

It all started with a broken guitar and a black bin liner!

Christmas Day, and a last minute stocking filler was the moment that literally changed Vince’s life. Sounds a bit melodramatic, but that’s the truth.

Vince was heading for a career in sport (studying Sports Science at University) until a guitar with two broken strings and a bent headstock was placed in his hands.

“I remember just making any noise I could and being completely content even then, with my basic attempts at songwriting.”

After a few years ‘cutting his teeth’ in local music venues, Vince became a full-time musician. Since then his voice and songs have earned him critical acclaim and opportunities that few signed artists receive.

In 2008, Vince achieved UK-wide approval and recognition for his work, winning two awards at the UK INDYs from a field of over 100,000 artists. The result of which culminated in a live performance in Las Vegas for PEPSI and the Deep Rock Drive concert series, alongside established artists Marc Cohen, Disturbed and Lady Antlebaum.

During his career, Vince has shared stages with Jocelyn Brown, James Morrison, Newton Faulkner, Lucie Sylvas and was selected as a finalist in The Voice UK, coached by Danny O’Donoghue from The Script.

On Vince’s voice, Will.I.AM from the Black Eyed Peas remarked: “Awesome. Awesome. Awesome.”

Vince was also one of the opening acts at the LG Arena for Eric Clapton and Paul Weller after winning the LG Arena competition.

Vince’s passion and philosophy remains the same:
“Play live and play lots!”

Oli Gosh

Oli Gosh began her career as an actress, training at RADA and then performing roles ranging from Juliet in Romeo and Juliet to Dirty Dancing in London’s West End. However, in the ‘resting’ periods between acting jobs she would reach for her guitar. Finding herself in a band with her brother and friends, she spent many a wonderful hour in meandering jam sessions. She was hooked, and switched focus from acting to music.

Coming from the underground up, Oli found her true home on the dance floor of Amnesia in Ibiza where she discovered Techno. You can hear this influence in the dark, pulsing intensity of her Ep SILVA. Here she teamed up with fellow south east London producer, Naive Machine with his analogue synth based, multi layered production. The track ‘Silva’ combines ethereal vocals with the raw power of flamenco stamping samples.

Oli also began writing and performing with Danglo, another South-East London lad, including a full live show supporting Elderbrook at Omeara, London. Her 1st release with Danglo, ‘Never let you go’ was picked up by Pete Tong. She’s now working with a variety of producers including Waifs and Strays on his new solo project – Part Time Lover. ‘Don’t Hesitate’ is out now on Damian Lazarus’ label, Crosstown Rebels.

Oli is currently working on some songs that you can hear, customize and send – we’ll let you know when these are ready for you to choose and personalize.
