‘The Ride’ – Vandalye
Founded by Thomas McCone, Lucas McCone & Scott Attew, Vandalye is an alternative folk rock band based out of Dubai, U.A.E.
The members come from varied backgrounds. Identical twins Lucas and Thomas began a professional tennis career at age 11, which they continued until their decision to drop the racket at the age 20 to pursue their passion for music. Lead vocalist, Scott spent his childhood and adolescence performing in theatre and music, which guided his decision to leave school at the age of 17 to chase a musical career.
‘Tremors’ – Irena Zilic
Irena Zilic is a Croatian musician steadily growing in popularity and garnering international recognition. She entered the music scene by shyly self-publishing her first recordings as the “Days of Innocence” EP at the end of 2012. Her musical genesis served solely as a way of breaking out of her mold, as a means to encourage herself to perform and become more inclusive with her music. At the close of 2014 she released “Travelling”, her debut LP record. The album was very well received and named 4th most important Croatian album of the last 30 years by the Croatian edition of Rolling Stone magazine.
‘Moonlight’ – Dante Mazzetti
Named one of the “ Top 20 Prospects – 2019” by Music Connection Magazine, Dante Mazzetti delivers a unique brand of Americana blues. He is known for his expressive vocals and multi-instrumental style. Described as a “standout songwriter” (New Music Weekly), “multi-talented musician” (The Independent) and “a marksman of both vocal skill and finger-plucking” (B-Sides and Badlands), Mazzetti is rooted in tradition yet fearlessly creative. As a multi-instrumentalist, Mazzetti plays most of the instruments on his albums. During his live performances he switches instruments throughout the show in addition to playing a number of instruments simultaneously.
