Johnny Lynch started performing under the moniker The Pictish Trail in 2002, recording his first album on his computer and releasing it on Fence Records in 2003. Lynch ran Fence Records until August 2013, managing the label for 10 years in total, before leaving to form a new label, Lost Map Records .

Lynch released his debut album proper, Secret Soundz Vol.1, in September 2008, to critical acclaim. In February 2009, The Times named Secret Soundz as an “Essential Recording” of the Fence Collective. In 2010 The List magazine named Lynch as the 12th “Hottest Scot” in its list of creative Scottish people. His 2010 album “In Rooms” (12″ vinyl) consists of 50 songs of 30 seconds each written as part of the “100 Days To Make Me A Better Person” project of 2009. Lynch also supported KT Tunstall throughout her 2010-2011 European tour in support of her 2010 album, Tiger Suit.

Secret Soundz Vol. 2 was recorded with Sweet Baboo taking up production duties, on the Isle of Eigg (where Lynch now resides), in 2012. The album was released to critical praise in February 2012. It was re-released in CD form in 2014.

In July 2014, the first Howlin’ Fling Festival took place on Eigg, with Lynch as organiser and performer. The line-up included, among others, Jens Lekman, Beth Orton and Sam Amidon, The Phantom Band and various bands from Lost Map Records.

South London singer songwriter, Jake Isaac, has announced his first UK headline tour following an eventful summer of touring which included festival performances at Barn On The Farm, Summer Sound, Leopallooza, Kendal Calling and a slot on the coveted Other Stage at Glastonbury. The tour begins on September 28th in Bristol and ends in London at Oslo in Hackney.

Jake released his latest EP ‘War Child’ *on June 28th while at Glastonbury, which went straight into *Top 10 *on the *iTunes Singer-Songwriter chart. The ‘War Child’ EP reveals a wealth of fresh talent to be found in Isaac, from the beautiful, soaring ‘Hope’ to the energetic melodies of ‘War Is Our Name’.
