Opening our doors for the first time in well over year,  The Brook presents a handfull of fresh new talent headed by local star in the making Mauvey. 
Mauvey
Born in Ghana, West Africa, and raised in the U.K., artist and songwriter, Mauvey, filters his unique batch of alternative music with Hip Hop, R&B/Soul, and 80s inspired synth-wave always alongside his message: Love. “My message will always be Love” says Mauvey, who has designed his projects to distribute Love through the creative narratives of intentional songwriting, intelligent melody, and hypnotic beat.

Mauvey has been influenced by artists like Michael Jackson, Kanye West, Oumou Sangaré, Prince, Childish Gambino, Labrinth, NAO, The Weeknd, and Andre 3000, as he goes on to state: "I am inspired by artists who made contributions so significant that they or their music will never be forgotten”.

 A passionate Mauvey says, "If my entire music career is a giant book about the rigours of Love, the ups, the downs, the highs and the complicated lows, I'd have done my job of distributing Love", he goes on to say, "I want to be clear about what I'm talking, singing and rapping about - no games - I don't know everything, but I know that Love is everything, there's no better subject.

In Autumn 2020, Mauvey was awarded by the MOBO Help Musicians Fund. Mauvey has also been well supported by Huw Stephens’ BBC Music Introducing on Radio 1, including being Mercury Prize  nominee Georgia’s ‘pick’. As well, Mauvey has gained backing from Jamz Supernova on Selector Radio (British Arts Council), after partnering up with W Songs, Warner Music UK’s publishing subsidiary.

‘The singer-rapper-songwriter is a breath of fresh air with his unforgettable authenticity projected in his music.’ - Notion Magazine

Mauvey's powerful lyrical content is unashamed, he isn't perfect, and he's not trying to be. Love is his mission, not just words in songs. The themes are not always black and white, at times, they’re a bit Mauvey.
Lloren
As a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer, Lloren has been working in the industry for over 10 years. In 2018, Lloren appeared on The Voice UK, placing third which enabled a fantastic platform to expand on her performances and fan base. 
 
In 2019, released her debut single ‘Into the Fire’, which accumulated over 100,000 views and sparked the attraction of A&G songs publishing, whom she signed with later that year. 
 
Lloren has found success with her published songs featuring on Television in both the UK and internationally. Her music has appeared in shows such as Made in Chelsea and The Bachelor. 
 
In late 2019, joined American artist Fleurie, on her European tour, as well as playing London Pride and Boardmasters. Now releasing her debut EP 'Lovesick', Lloren is setting out with a new sound combining influences of pop, indie and cinematic compositions.
Charley Stride
Charley's hard work and determination resulted in her signing her first album deal with BBC Radio 6 DJ and founder of Acid Jazz, Eddie Piller, who is responsible for launching the career of Jamiroquai. She released 'All I Know' shortly after, which got attention on BBC Radio 2 and played by Craig Charles DJ Legend.
