Hamish Murphy

Hamish Murphy
Hamish Murphy recently set up a music project with Devon and Cornwall Refugee Support (DCRS).

He'll be bringing in a couple of students who will be able to tell us what it's like to be a refugee living here in The South West.

They'll also treat us to some live music.

Hamish is just back from Palestine so we'll hear his story too.

Cydney Brown

Cydney Brown
Cydney Brown is a "singing barmaid" at a pub in Newton Abbot.

She says she takes great influence from modern and clasic artists, ranging from The Beatles and Fleetwood Mac to Laura Marling.

Cyndey is planning to head to Australia later this year to visit Melbourne and spread her music with some antipodean gigging.

She'll be performing live throughout the morning.

Find out more about Cydney on her Facebook page.

Mike Morton

Mike Morton
Mike Morton started writing music in the 80s and - along with his brother, Ray - wrote pop style ballads for the likes of Lisa Stansfield and others.

Mike was inspired by artists like Scott Walker and The Walker Brothers along with the soulful tones of Barry White and Isaac Hayes.

In the early 2000s he began entering competitions, with great results, reaching the finals and semi-finals in the UK Songwriting Contest.

Now, in retirment, he's collaborating with his nephew Chris and producer/vocalist Roo McKeller.

We'll find out more on today's show.

Here's a link to Mike's Website.
