Bella Figura

London-based three-piece Bella Figura are proving to be one’s to watch this year.

Currently captivating audiences all round the UK on their ‘Coffee House’ Tour, performing two or even three shows a day, London three piece Bella Figura are winning fans over with their cinematic rock grooves since releasing two EPs and a single in the form of Forever Lost. Their sound is a meeting of “Classic West coast Rock & British poetic lyricism”. Justin Gartry’s deep soulful voice has resonances of Eddie Vedder and the band’s passionate nature has similarities to Neil Young. No doubt this will be a band to watch this year.
