Eric Sommer is a singer, writer and guitar player with a style that’s a cross between Billie Joe Shaver, Taj Mahal, Willie Porter and Steve Howe, delivered like a velvet hammer – Crown Royal poured over #2 sandpaper. With a unique set-up that generally includes 4-5 guitars, 3-4 small amps and a stompbox, it is guitar, slide & open tuning stuff wrapped around songs for people who care about things that matter: love won, love lost, pain and angst… and insane ex-girlfriends, wrinkled shirts, bad coffee, flat tires, gas station hot dogs, dumb pets… and checkout lines….

Mock Deer (Ricky Damiani) is a singer and songwriter based in London.

A self-taught musician with a unique playing and writing style, he has spent the majority of his life in the North of England and has re-immersed himself in the capital’s Alt-folk scene over recent years, playing shows for many of the best local promoters as well as touring both in the UK and in Europe.

As well as writing original music for theatre and television he has released two EPs, ‘Cold and Bright’ and more recently ‘How We Used to Live’ released in July 2015. His renewed involvement in the live music scene has seen him play shows supporting great acts such as The Burning Hell (Can), The Migrant (DK), Sam Brookes (UK) and Kristin McClement (UK) as well as appearing at several UK festivals, including Festival N6, Wilderness Festival, Ramsbottom Festival, The End & Uncivilization Festival

He is currently recording an album with producer Scott Fitzgerald and collaborating with many friends he’s met on the way, The Album promises to be something special and will hopefully be finished by the end of the year. Between the recording schedule he’ll be playing shows and festivals in the UK/Europe & Canada throughout the year.
