Meet the Artists 

Rou Reynolds

Rou Reynolds, of the revered band Enter Shikari, is joining our roster of artists to play at the MHF Live birthday show. He’ll be playing a one-off acoustic set that will send shivers down your spine and if you’re already a super-fan you may just hear one of your favourite tracks like you’ve never heard it before. Here’s a taster that we adore:


Topping just about every ‘band to watch’ list going, Sorry are making waves in the UK music scene and we’re delighted to have them perform at our MHF Live birthday show. The North London four piece defy genre, but here’s what Vice had to say about the band: ‘The music is good; it’s really, really good. Pairing lo-fi pop riffs and abrasive electronics with melodies that are both romantic and eerie, they could have been plucked from Olympia in the 90s. But they also sound like being young and in London.” See for yourselves: 

Murray Macleod 

Murray Macleod is frontman of British alternative rock group The XCERTS whose infectious songs exploring the light and dark of life have racked up millions of plays on Spotify. He performs a rare solo acoustic show for our MHF Live birthday show. 

Priscila Hernandez 

Spoken word artist Priscila hails from South East London; her powerful poetry aims to create social impact and empower others. She will perform Body Image – penned especially for our Mental Health Awareness Week campaign - alongside other original material:
