—> The Flamenco Thief
Craig Sutton, better known as The Flamenco Thief, is an English guitarist whose phenomenal rise within the DIY music scene has seen him become one of the busiest touring artists in the country. Specializing in fast rhythmic guitar playing Craig has earned a reputation for mesmerising live performances in which he uses a Spanish acoustic guitar with the Boss RC loop pedal to blend modern rhythms with time-honoured Flamenco techniques. A particularly resourceful musician, Craig also utilizes the guitar as a percussive instrument, layering metronomic hip-hop beats by carefully beating the body; creating a unique energy that few solo instrumentalists manage to achieve. Craig’s early influences of ska, hip-hop and gypsy swing are evident throughout his music, helping him craft a catalogue of songs that are intelligent but accessible. Craig’s compositions revere Flamenco’s heritage while embracing music technology, and as a result each song is delicately poised between the classical and contemporary. His eponymous debut six-track EP was released in the UK in 2011 and quickly gained recognition from the likes of the BBC and NME, both of which have gone on to endorse the artist. The album, Liberating Parts of the Cosmos, was released in 2013 and supported by a three month European tour, spanning 17 countries. In 2014 The Flamenco Thief is back on the road strengthening his status as one of the hardest working musicians in the business with the goal of performing 250 concerts across 40 countries in just ten months.

—> Angela Chan
Angela Chan is a violist, producer and arranger with a little twist. Classically-trained until one day she was shown a reverb pedal and a pickup (immediately blue-tacked onto her viola), she completed her undergraduate studies in classical and contemporary music before obtaining a Masters in Music Production. Angela works with bands in various roles; session player, touring member, arranger, producer. Besides her main instrument, other credits include violin, keys, backing vocals, synths and samplers, and percussion. Since 2017 she has been a touring member of Placebo and more recently, Kyle Falconer (The View).
​ As producer, Angela has created audio & sound design for screen, theatre, A.V. installations and virtual gaming applications. From her studio in Leeds, she offers remote string recording, production services and arrangements.  She is interested by new music technology and its uses, and is currently working with Interplay Theatre to develop a VR experience with interactive audio elements.
Away from session work, she is creatively involved with Lanterns on the Lake (Bella Union), Tomorrow We Sail (Gizeh Records) and Hello Cosmos.
