Joana Serrat
We’re delighted to welcome back the amazing Joana Serrat to Bexhill
Cross The Verge, just as its name promises, shows us another side of Joana Serrat, who so enchanted audiences on her 2014 album Dear Great Canyon. On Cross The Verge, her third album, Joana lays bare all the cracks, inconsistencies and fears that come with life, with the album revealing itself to be an especially beautiful tribute to the acknowledgment of loss and the acceptance of the uncertain.

To record this album, Joana Serrat travelled from her home in Vic, near Barcelona, to Montreal, Canada to team up with producer Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire, The Barr Brothers) in his analogue studio, The Hotel2Tango. In the recording process Joana was joined by the likes of Gavin Gardiner (The Wooden Sky), Aaron Goldstein (Daniel Romano, City & Colour, Cowboy Junkies) and the acclaimed Canadian auto harpist and vocalist Basia Bulat. Elsewhere, Neil Halstead (Slowdive, Mojave 3) and Ryan Boldt (The Deep Dark Woods) joined Joana in two duets from two different approaches; the shimmering pop of Cloudy Heart and the wrought Americana of Black Lake.

William The Conqueror
Debut album “Proud Disturber Of The Peaceout ” out on Loose Music the day before AUgust 4th
Hailing from the coast of Cornwall, multi-instrumentalists Ruarri Joseph, Harry Harding and Naomi Holmes channel classic blues and singer-songwriter influences through a grunge/indie filter drawing influences from bands and artists as diverse as The Doors, Ryan Adams and The Lemonheads, with Mark Guarino from The Guardian describing them as “stomping country rock veering into stoner grunge”. Praised for their grit and authenticity by the likes of The Guardian and NPR’s Ann Powers, the three piece have already made their mark across the pond in Nashville performing at the influential AmericanaFest which led to a nomination for best song at the UK Americana Awards and a chance to share the stage with the likes of Van Morrison.

Sister Suzie
Suzie and Mick rarely play together but when they do it brings deep south, down home blues to life with great authenticity. Suzie plays with a 5 piece rhythm and blues band ‘Sister Suzie’ and has been playing the clubs around London and internationally of late and Mick Knight has been playing his National resonator guitar all around New Zealand and America since a teenager. Expect to hear the likes of Memphis Minnie, Blind Boy Fuller and Elmore James.

Moss Clarkson
St. Leonards-on-sea based folk, blues, jazz duo featuring Trevor Moss of Trevor Moss & Hannah-Lou and Tom Clarkson

The Equatorial Group
Sounding like Crazy Horse colliding with Fleetwood Mac on a dusty road, The Equatorial Group are a bunch of friends from the East Sussex wilds sharing their love of one-note guitar solos, stormy seas and heartache. Featuring Twe Fox on keys and vocals, Andy Tourle on bass and vocals, Dave Davies on guitar and vocals, and Helen Weeks on vocals and pedal steel/guitar, they can produce a gentle landscape of sparkling harmonies or a thirst-inducing ramshackle racket, as the moment takes them.

Dj Jonny Morris
Jonny will be spinning his eclectic collection of vinyl between the bands all afternoon
