Ciaran Austin and Cantaloupe Island

Emerging artist Ciaran Austin is proving himself to be someone to keep an eye on - his style of alternative hip-hop has been receiving praise from the likes of Tom Robinson at BBC 6Music and BBC introducing, say he is “on a breakneck journey to defining a whole new genre…a definite star on the rise”. Ciaran formed Cantaloupe Island last year, which is comprised of Louis Brown (drums), Pete Tillotson (bass), Jamie White (guitar), and Felicity Hamilton (sax/vocals). Since then their hybrid of funk, hip-hop and soul has seen them perform at venues such as Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, EGB 2017 and Exeter Cavern.
