Girls to the front! Singer, rapper, multi-instrumentalist, producer, mix & mastering engineer, and FBi SMAC Award ‘Best Live Act’ winner Milan Ring is a one-woman powerhouse on the Tumbalong Nights stage. Stepping out solo, creating loops, dropping beats, triggering samples, all whilst effortlessly shredding on guitar, she’ll ensnare you with her honest, treacle-like vocals.
Milan draws on her Chinese and Indian heritage, finding concepts of duality (Ying & Yang) and spirituality a constant source of inspiration. What’s the DNA of her analogue-meets-digital sound? “Warmth. Well, I like it to feel warm, full and textured, and intricate. Plus, it just needs a slapping beat and some tasty guitars and I’m happy!” she laughs.
“… modern soul meets indie-electronic, scattered with RnB, …unyielding, controlled, and honest, Ring's purist lyrics expose it all through live percussion, electronic drums and synths, raw guitar takes, and earthy vocals.” – Russh
In support, rising RnB soul vocalist, songwriter, and movement artist GLO brings her empowering and hypnotic melodies that are fast defining her as the voice of her generation. GLO’s mesmerising shows fuse intersecting cultures. She disarms and ignites audiences into a beautiful, transcendent state of being, whilst her free-flowing bodily forms dance in the language of Oshun.
“GLO’s strengths lie in creating smooth, sensual tracks with a groovy edge. Her melodic spoken-word style of singing is enthralling and soulful... She dips into the peripheries of hip hop, jazz and dancehall amongst other genres, while the addition of electronic blips in the production adds a modern touch to tracks dripping with nostalgia for 90s R&B.” – FBi Radio Artist of the Week
