Sam Brightbart will release his first solo studio album, Slow Forward, live at Luna on 16 February 2017. This will also be the first live outing of these songs with full band accompaniment. Sam’s music ranges from dream-pop via folk to alt-rock, influenced by the likes of Laura Veirs and Conor Oberst but with hints of Incubus, The White Stripes or Neutral Milk Hotel thrown in here and there. Sam’s backing band is primarily made up of the members of local rock band Overdog.

Hailing from the unsung Northern City of Bradford, singer­-songwriter Andy Ruddy is a product of the rich, unearthed music scene in his hometown. His debut album ‘Everything Is In Order’ reached a high of number 6 in the iTunes Singer-­Songwriter charts in late 2015 and is described as ‘a strikingly ambitious, spectacular montage of contemporary indie folk’ (Virtuoso Sounds). Andy releases his second album in 2018.
