Chris Snelling

Chris was signed by Lark Recordings in 2014, initially to record a diverse repertoire of piano arrangements but increasingly his own compositions are taking precedence.  His latest album “88 Keys and Me”, released in January 2019, is a collection of original compositions imbuing his distinctive minimalist style. Chris’s music is gaining him a faithful following, particularly on streaming sites such as Spotify counting over 214,000 monthly listeners and 2,700 followers, and had songs featured on Apple’s Best of Week, Classical Concentration and Classical Piano Essentials Playlists.

Paula Kiete

Paula’s violin arrangements of pop and neo classical songs are quickly gaining a loyal following.

Chris Mercer

Chris’s original work draws inspiration from nature; attempting to represent the peaceful qualities of the planet through music. He released his first album “Peaceful Guitar” in January 2019 and is already striking a chord with Spotify’s official playlist of the same name. Chris has over 340,000 monthly listeners on Spotify and has had tracks featured on Apple’s The A List: Classical Playlist.

James Shanon

James is a young guitarist from Dorset who is most at home on the acoustic guitar. Arranging popular songs for finger style guitar is something that James thrives upon alongside composing a steady stream of delicate and emotive guitar instrumentals. Colours of folk run through James’ work mixed with spoonfuls of Jazz creating a warm and open soundscape. Notable influences on his sound and technique have been guitar greats Chet Atkins and Django Reinhardt, and songwriters such as Don McLean, Jim Croce and John Denver. James released “Peaceful Guitar” in February, has 23k monthly listeners on Spotify and songs featured on Apple’s The A List: Classical Playlist
