This week on The Other Woman on Amazing Radio we’re celebrating the return of extraordinary east London MC Shystie – she seemed to vanish a while back after a signing with Universal, that seemingly went nowhere. She teamed up with Azealia Banks back in 2012 so she’s ticking all of our boxes. Her new single Stop is a fantastic return to music! We also hear from newcomers Box of Light, Madrid duo Deers and Finland’s Have You Ever Seen The Jane Fonda VHS? You can listen again here.

Suffolk singer and songwriter Fiona Bevan has already scored a number 1 hit with Little Things that she co-wrote for One Direction. Now life is sweet, recording her own album Talk To Strangers in LA and making it sound exactly how she wants it too. She's currently touring with Irish singer-songwriter Kal Lavelle, a youtube sensation in her own right, on the Song Sisters Tour - where they hold songwriting workshops for women before each show. These two are a force of nature individually, catching them performing together is a treat!

The delightful Eliza Shaddad was a recent guest on The Other Woman on Amazing Radio. The Londoner born of Scottish and Sudanese cut her teeth busking on the streets of east London and has a quiet confidence and self-assuredness that imbues all she does. It's emotional, cerebral and very beautiful.

Brigid Power-Ryce is an Irish musician and songwriter from Galway. She makes wonderfully eerie folk music which veers to the experimental. She recorded her album in a local church complete with background noises and an obliging vicar. Brigid joined us in session and interview on The Other Woman on Amazing Radio:

It's with great excitement that TOW is joining forces with the good folk at The Local to put on two of our current favourites. Irish guitarist and songwriter Dearbhla Minogue fronts The Drink (along with east Londoners Dan and Dave) they make grungey and melodic indie rock that gets under your skin. Then there's Somerset native Charlie Hinchliff who is Dear Pariah, she sings soulful folk rock ballads with a kick ass band behind her. 27 July, Ace Hotel Shoreditch and it's FREE!

Smoke Fairies are back with a stunner of a new album, simply called Smoke Fairies - near break up, lots of traveling and despair at the soul-destroying day jobs has produced a beaut. Hear live session tracks here and the girls get all introspective as we talk about the new album.

The Other Woman has been working closely with The Local plotting live shows across the summer. Our first with Talk in Colour and Collectress at the Ace Hotel was a resounding success and we'll be back there at the end of July to bring you The Drink who are just superb.
In the meantime we're trying out a new venue - Topolski on the Southbank. Come along for performances from multi-talented singer songwriter Sephine Llo and Lancashire duo Bird to Beast on Tuesday 17 June, it's free and the cocktails are excellent.
