Left Step Band / The Meds Collective / Alonestar A love of reggae, dub and old skool ska are all evident in the band's sound and the group have bonded immediately over a diverse sound and a penchant for bringing the everyday to life with big hooks and a killer melody.
Never short on song craft, they have rapidly generated a group of songs which befit their name, left-field, out of step but at all times, danceable and with an instinctive eye for a groove and a chorus.
As a live proposition LSB are something else altogether. MC'ing meets singing, and swaggering beats meet soulful hooks - all imbued with a sense of timeless storytelling and adept lyrical narrative
The Meds Collective is a dynamic London-based act, bringing a fresh blend of musical influences to create a unique sound that incorporate Pop, Hip-Hop, R&B, Funky House, Dubstep and Nu-Soul influences.
Hailing from Bristol, Jethro Sheeran AKA Alonestar is an artist who fuses hip hop and urban pop, folk and soul to great effect, winning two Exposure Music Awards for Best Male Artist and Best Urban Song. His most recent release Warrior, a 6-track EP featuring collaborations with Ja Ja Soze, Rosie Ribbons, and his cousin Ed Sheeran. Returning the complement, Ed recently incorporated a portion of Alonestars song Shottas Paradise on his own single You Need Me, I Dont Need You.
