Sincerely, Frank

Sincerely, Frank are a duo from Stavanger, Norway who take strong influence from Joni Mitchell, Don McLean and many of the other major singer/songwriters of that era

They recently released the music video for their single "Rocking Horse", and their brand new, eponymous, EP.
The duo consists of Emilie Eie (vocals) and Casper Bjelland Hatlestad (guitar). Emilie is studying for a BA in Jazz at the Conservatoire of Music in Stavanger, while Casper is studying for a BA in music at Leeds College Of Music.

The duo had their debut UK concert in Leeds in December, and are looking forward to returning for the UK leg of this Summer Double-Bill Tour.

Henry Bateman

Henry Bateman is a songwriter from Fairford who is currently studying at the acclaimed Leeds College of Music. Never one to be in a mould, Henry's style has been influenced by a range of original guitarists/singer/songwriters - ranging from Michael Hedges to Peter Gabriel, Randy Newman and James Taylor. Their influences have been formative in shaping Henry’s ability to play sparkling finger style guitar and write and perform his own compositions with a confidence and flair that is earning him a burgeoning reputation for his spellbinding live work. His debut EP ‘Open Arms’ was released in April 2013 and his album ‘Take A Form’ in June 2015. The latter was released to high critical acclaim, with Planet Stereo describing it as “Truly a masterpiece from beginning to end”. His noteworthy live performances include ‘Live at Leeds’, ‘Verdi Italian’ at The Royal Albert Hall, supporting virtuoso guitarist Mike Dawes, and London Folkfest.
