w21Music will be hosting their next ‘Songwriters Spotlight’ night at Gullivers in Manchester on August 27th, featuring three of the hottest new acts on the UK country scene.
Making her very first collaboration with w21Music, singer songwriter Demi Marriner will be appearing, following the incredible success of her debut EP ‘Tracks and Trails’ which went straight to #1 on the iTunes Country Albums Chart back in April. Since then, Demi has grabbed the attention of country blogs around the UK and has made a number of radio appearances including a session on BBC WM Introducing, and a session on Baylen Leonard’s ‘The Front Porch’ which will be broadcast in the coming weeks.
Demi has played at the likes of Wychwood Festival, 2000 Trees Festival and Blackthorn Festival over the summer, making a superb impression and adding to her ever-expanding fan base. She also recently supported Rufus Wainwright at the Symphony Hall in Birmingham and received a fabulous reception from everybody in attendance.

Ceri-Rose will also be performing. She was born in the countryside and grew up listening to music from all walks of life courtesy of her parents, whose varying tastes gave her the opportunity to experience a magical medley of genres which have greatly influenced her development as a singer-songwriter. Having spent most of her childhood singing her way around the house and through school, she started writing her own material for fun as a teenager. Her impressive vocal range and musical ability will be a treat to witness!
Her debut EP ‘Highway Of Dreams’ was released in March this year and is available everywhere.
