Holloway Road are Jack Cooper and Robert Gulston both originating from sunny Southend-On-Sea. But these aren’t your ordinary Essex boys. Instead of tanning or getting their vajazzles done they’re creating “free big in your face” country pop music. Jack and Robert being in their mid twenties now have had their fair share of experience writing and playing around the world.
Having gone to school and working in the same musical projects together Jack and Roberts habit for writing and producing stems from the idea of just being able to write about being real and having a good time. Just some of their influences are Florida Georgia Line, Kacey Musgraves, The Eagles and Mumford and Sons and drinkin’ a beer!
With their debut self titled EP entering the top 10 UK iTunes Country album charts, spending time in Nashville and being invited to play the Martin Guitar stage at the CMA Festival last year, heading out on the road with US number 1 hit writers ‘John & Jacob’ for their UK dates and a slot at this years C2C Festival at the O2 London; Jack and Robert are well on their way to imprinting their own footprint in the country community.
Now that Holloway Road is in its second year Jack and Robert are planning on putting out more music, touring and making sure their footprints is firmly concreted up ya’ll ass’!

Following in the footsteps of increasingly popular British country music rooted artists such as The Dunwells comes Jade Helliwell, a singer / songwriter from a small town in the north of England. A notably British blend of musical styles, but always rooted in her beloved country music, Jade’s original material is sometimes infectiously upbeat, sometimes reflective and balladesque, but either way intensely catchy. Jade’s songs are her way of escaping the sometimes harsh realities of her ‘urban’, northern town life, and releasing her true ‘country heart’. Relishing performing her music, Jade can regularly be found performing in clubs, pubs, acoustic events and festivals, often to sell out audiences.
