Granfalloon is the musical project of Manchester based artist and producer Richard Lomax. Lomax makes a hybrid of alt-folk acoustica, and lo-fi electronica - weaving oddball elements, such as Omnichords, acoustic guitars, and vintage drum loops, into dreamy songs and cinematic soundscapes. New album RGB is out now.

Award winning American songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Lobelia has been featured in Billboard Magazine, PBS and worked as a studio musician for 10+ years. Now living in the UK after a 7-year stint in Montreal, she hosts an acclaimed songwriter night at Tower of Song in Birmingham, a lovely little space that is the recipient of the first ever Art’s Council’s Grassroots Venues Award.
