|“Liverpool's finest indie band!” - Janice Long, BBC Radio 2 |
Liverpool’s The Little Secrets are Kevin Dixon and Stacy Jo. Formed in 2010 after meeting at Liverpool's world famous Cavern Club, Stacy was singing with another band when Kevin spotted her. Blown away by her talent, Kevin decided on the spot to ‘steal’ Stacy for his new project, and after two years of writing together and experimenting with different line-ups and sounds, the pair found their sound in infectious pop, echoing the likes of Camera Obscura and BMX Bandits with a nod to Phil Spector's production style.
“We asked ourselves what kind of songs would we like to hear and set about writing them” Kevin explains. “The songs are written as a true partnership, both musically and lyrically. The initial idea can start from either one of us and is then crafted further towards the sound we are trying to create, infusing as many of our influences as possible.”
Debut single ‘All I Need’, released on Edge Hill University’s The Label Recordings, has already received airplay on BBC Radio 2 from Janice Long who selected it as one of her ‘Janice Loves’ tracks. Producer Carl Hunter of The Farm describes 'All I Need' as "having sunshine poured into your ears!"

Based in Liverpool, Jo Herring and Laura Caldwell met in 2007 through friends; a meeting that resulted in an explosion of creativity where songwriting, musicianship and visual art collided to create SeaWitches.
The band gig regularly in Liverpool, where they've played Sound City, Music Week and the Green Party Conference as well as hosting their own nights supporting other well known bands like Eagulls and Giant Drag.
2012 saw Tilo Pirnbaum joining the band on drums, and SeaWitches entered the studio to record their first EP 'Spacegun', which received positive reviews and helped secure a loyal and diverse fanbase. They also began to play outside Liverpool, securing gigs in Manchester and London.
Jamie Jenkin was recruited on guitar in 2014 and, seven years in the making, the line up is complete and the band are ready to take their music to a wider audience. Prolific songwriters, they work collaboratively with each member bringing a diverse set of influences.
Hailed as one of the most exciting bands to emerge from Liverpool's music scene is recent years, SeaWitches are the latest signing for Edge Hill University's The Label Recordings run by Carl Hunter of The Farm and assisted by media students. An experiment that has led to huge success for previous signing Hooton Tennis Club, who are now with Heavenly Recordings.
