HOT VOX presents:

Paolo Lewis – Inspired by artists such as James Bay and Ed Sheeran, Italian singer-songwriter Paolo Lewis dropped out of medical school in Rome and moved to London to pursue his musical career. Paolo Lewis started by playing in front of a few people at local pubs and eventually it grew into important venues such as The Bedford, Cargo and even the International Youth Festival in Kingston. “Warriors From Mars” was his first release with more than 9,000 streams over all platforms and was featured on the radio. He loves to entertain his audience as much as he can, so be ready to sing with him, and expect a sore throat the day after his gigs!

Cristina Hart – half Spanish and half Brazilian, born in Switzerland and living in the UK, this quadrilingual artist and songwriter moved from hometown Geneva to London to pursue the career she had always dreamed of. Since then, her collaboration with producer Hilow on their track ‘Fell In Love With You’ has been streamed over 2 million times on Spotify. She independently released her debut single ‘House of Tears’ – which was picked up by BBC Essex presenter Tony Fisher and Belwood Music Blog writer James Fenney who says ‘Her voice is truly one in a million, the kind that speaks to your very soul…”. Cristina’s indelible melodies combined with her powerful vocals make the perfect medium for the messages of empowerment, perseverance and resilience she tackles. Her influences inevitably led her to make pop with a twist of her own that you can expect to hear in her debut EP ‘Today’. Her new single, No Regrets, is no exception!

Sweetmates – Blending slick disco house with raw, soulful vocals and blues inspired guitar riffs, Sweetmates are the perfect indie pop duo. They take on a wide range of influences from genres as far apart as EDM and indie-rock which they mixed with soulful pop vibes to create a truly unique sound. This sound developed into their debut EP ‘Disco Turd.’ The resulting EP is original, extremely enjoyable and unlike anything you’ve ever heard before. As off-the-wall as it is catchy, this four-track EP is addictive and will become the soundtrack to your spring.

THÉA – this French singer songwriter has always been surrounded by music. Between her mom’s Gospel, and her dad’s love for jazz, she developed a passion for soul.

Simon Garrard – this Londoner’s music borrows from the passion and velocity of punk and the excoriating honesty of folk. His live shows are intense and bursting with infectious energy, urgency and the joy of playing music. He’ll play to anyone who’ll listen, whenever he can.
