JOHN GALEA

►QUILLA CONSTANCE- Quilla Constance aka Jennifer Allen is a fine artist, singer/songwriter, dancer and costume-maker working through the mediums of pop music and video.
Since graduating from Oxford University and then Goldsmiths College of Art Quilla has been performing concurrently in a fine art, theatrical and mainstream pop music context; touring a set of spectacular musical numbers that antagonise the consumption of her fantastically overt identity.

Since 2008 Quilla has worked in collaboration with electro-punk composer/producer- Rafflesian and more recently, Aidan Love – (Mute, Interscope, Geffen).

Quilla’s recent music shows include Hackney Wicked Festival 2011 (Main Stage), Blitz Club Reunion, as featured on BBC London news – hosted by Steve Strange and Rusty Egan and ‘YouBloom’ Music Awards, hosted by Sir Bob Geldof, Nigel Grainge and Rupert Hine.

► THE HEARTRATES- Throughout 2011, the Heartrates have been entertaining crowds with insistent, highly melodic songs filled with tales of teenage love and dirty discos.

Already identified as one of the most colourful, unpredictable and exciting live acts on the London scene, it is the strength of the Heartrates song writing which has won most plaudits. Rarely breaching three minutes, the band say a lot in a short time and lyrical content takes listeners on a journey from suburban schools and local dive bars to tales of love, disappointment and the mistakes of adulthood.’

Musical Influences range across M83, Talking Heads, ABC, Pulp, The Cure, Cyndi Lauper and The Human League and their first as-yet untitled EP with be available at the end of this year. If you haven’t seen the Heartrates yet, do…and wear comfortable shoes as you won’t want to sit down.

► THE CONNECTORS- Punk, Rock and Roll are sitting in a bar, drinking cheap rum. In walks a trash can full of voices, who gets to talking. Punk, Rock and Roll think they might like this guy, so they pour their drinks down his throat, shake him up, swing him around the room, knocking over everyone. This is what The Connectors do. Punk swag with rock & roll guitar strings weaved through a solid, skank-worthy drumbeat, blasted through your ears with a drone of non-beauty from the frontguy. The Connectors love you, and they want to eat your beautiful energy. They are two modest boys, and they’ve come to fill your ears with whatever they could get out of their heads. So come listen, because hot girls like their music, and they are underground, which I’m told is cool these days.

► JOHN GALEA- Born in Norfolk and now based between London and Malta John has worked with the top producers and writers from around the world , including L.A based Beluga Heights ( (Britney Spears, Jason DeRulo, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj) , Dele Ladimeji ( Jay Sean/Mel C/Natasha Beddingfield) Hugh Goldsmith (Blue , Natalie Imbruglia) .

Johns Galea started when he was 13 and after winning a UK National Songwriting Contest , John started writing for himself aswell as other artists.
