Jools is joined on his first show from a brand new home by Suede, who have just had a top ten album with their sixth LP, Bloodsports, their first in eleven years. From Birmingham, Laura Mvula has already burst on the scene in 2013 with her debut album Sing To The Moon. She will be performing a couple of tracks from it including recent single Green Garden.

Also on the show, originally from Atlanta, Georgia, Chan Marshall AKA Cat Power returns, and making their television debut are hotly-tipped Irish teenage four piece The Strypes with their take on the classic rhythm and blues sound of the 60s and 70s which has already won them a legion of fans including Paul Weller and Dave Grohl.

New York's 'Screaming Eagle of Soul' Charles Bradley also returns to the show to perform tracks from his hugely anticipated sophomore LP 'Victim of Love' following the soaring success of his 2011 breakthrough debut. 24-year-old Oklahoman troubadour John Fullbright makes his UK television debut, with songs from his highly praised, Grammy nominated debut album 'From the Ground Up'.
