A songwriting duo composed of Hal St John and Cherrie Anderson based in Woolwich, London. They are unafraid to deep-sea dive into the deepest oceans of human emotions to colour-up drab contemporary life. Their songs are audio footprints left behind by people impelled towards invisible things. On what sets Ooberfuse apart from their peers, an influential UK music critic says: “Ethereal electronic pop with the complex beauty that Ooberfuse has will endure.” Well-crafted songs delivered through powerful, emotional and heartfelt vocals combined with east-meets-west electronic music are Ooberfuse’s trademarks.

Cherrie Anderson’s vocal…reaches out of the headphones from bar one and shakes hands with your ears. It’s just gorgeous... Classy, well-made pop music.” : Tom Robinson, BBC Introducing

Odd, and disquieting stuff from the British electronica duo…eight parts chilly winter's night, to two parts theme from the X-files.” : Guardian Music

Very cool and quirky!” : Boy

One of Ooberfuse’s strengths is their live performance, having played hundreds of gigs all over the world. They are equally at home performing to an audience of 2 million in Madrid, to hundreds in one of Rio de Janeiro’s notorious favelas, or in front of the House of Lords in the UK. They recently toured the UK, China, South Korea, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Brazil, Canada, the Philippines and Iraq. They graced the stage of some of Britain’s most prestigious venues – including the O2 in Greenwich, Leicester Square Theatre, Bush Hall and Trafalgar Square.

Support for Ooberfuse has come from various credible music tastemakers such as Paul Oakenfold, Sister Bliss (Faithless), Ministry of Sound, BBC Introducing’s Tom Robinson, Amazing Radio’s Jim Gellatly and DJ Mag.

Sarah Téibo is gradually becoming highly sought after in UK Gospel and internationally following the release of her debut album ‘Walk With Me’ on all digital music platforms on the 8th of May 2016. This was unveiled with a live gig at London’s 606 Jazz Club and subsequently bagged her a MOBO nomination for Best Gospel and two JUMP Music Video Awards in the same year.

This is a follow on from her debut single ‘Steal My Joy’, which was a huge success late 2015, charting at Number 2 in the StepFWD Christian Charts in December 2015 and bagging her two nominations for ‘Best Newcomer’ with Premier Gospel Awards and GXMM Awards in 2016.

The second of four children, Sarah was born in London, England but also had the privilege of growing up in Nigeria where she started singing in choirs from the age of ten. It was from this early age that it became evident that she was one to be heard and watched.

Her love for music was highly influenced by her parents’ taste in music and their rich vinyl collection which featured amongst others, Soul and R&B legends like Stevie Wonder and Diana Ross. She grew up listening to these phenomenal artistes and recalls memories of singing along to Marvin Gaye with her mom.

Through tumultuous experiences in her early teenage years where her family was faced with eviction and homelessness, Sarah learnt the importance of faith in God and started writing music to express both her fears and her faith. These proved a great source of strength through the most trying of times.

In her 11-track album which ranges from soulful, infectious numbers such as ‘New Day’ and ‘Special’ to bouncing up-tempo tunes like ‘I Will Sing!’ and deeply inspiring tracks like ‘Keep The Faith’, Sarah fuses her uniquely soulful yet contemporary style and powerful lyrics to produce a new and exciting sound which some music critics have described as ‘fresh, urban yet classic’.

Following the launch of her album, Sarah has kept up the momentum, singing along side Grammy Award winning Gospel artist Charles Jenkins in May, headlining her own concert with American Gospel artist Lisa McClendon on 5th August and performing at one of UK’s largest Christian festivals – Creation Fest, also in August 2016. Sarah continues to keep busy with her first headline gig for 2017 planned to take place at the prestigious Hard Rock Cafe London on 18th January.

‘Walk With Me’ is now available for purchase on www.sarahteibo.co.uk and for digital download from all major online music stores.

Temple Veil

What can crush all cultural diversities, break down barriers, supersede personal differences, and unite us all for one purpose? The answer is love, namely, God’s love. Proof of this is found in the unlikely formation of the Tampa, FL based CCM/ Pop Worship duo known as Temple Veil. Temple Veil are DeRock, the urban city kid and Brysson, the rural country boy. Two vastly different upbringings who music is described as raw, unique, and real. Fusing musical backgrounds in classical, rock, pop, and jazz, the band has birthed an entirely new sound in the contemporary worship genre.
