We’re just a group of musicians from Croydon who grew up listening to blues, Motown. 70s rock and soul. We write our music to take us and our audiences away to far off times and places. 

 Blues, rock, soul, dirty motown band. Listen to Coffeepot Drive and you are transported to an era of 70s Motown and Southern Rock – from jazz-influenced rhythms and sophisticated blues rock melodies to tracks with malevolent, powerful vocals. 
 “Part of a new wave of contemporary artists taking Blues and Jazz to new places.” -David Freeman, JazzFM

Richie Phillips is a musician from London. The best way to describe his music is that it comes in two parts. The main is a singer songwriter style, influenced by the like of Dylan, Lou Reed & Leonard Cohen. With a melancholy sound and lyrics about himself, life and the people he meets. The second part is an experimental side, using the electric guitar to try and create a minimalist, avant-garde sound using consonance and dissonance tones. 

 With a great love of music and its many styles, Richie tries take something away from all he hears, in turn hoping to let his music to be able to go anywhere and any style.
Listen to Richie’s debut album The Richie on Spotify.



Emerging indie-pop singer-songwriter Kat Kenna writes simple songs about complex things: love, family, home, heaven. Phrases turn, emotions connect, melodies soar. She lays herself bare using her piercing, bittersweet voice and expressive piano playing to sketch her stories. 

 The London-based artist imbues music with an atmospheric quality which had it featured as the main soundtrack in an independent movie ‘Rehearsals’, and several tracks have been released on UK compilation CDs such as 30/30 (EMI and Roundhouse production) and British Rockers 2011.
