BBC Introducing Kent gig features the Bay Rays, Draper, Matt Wills, Shells and Glass Peaks in Dartford

By Angela Cole

Up and coming acts from across Kent will be showcasing their talents at the BBC Introducing in Kent's ninth birthday celebrations in Dartford this weekend.

All tipped for the top, the musical acts will perform a night of live music at the Mick Jagger Centre in Dartford.

Headlining the event on Sunday, March 26 will be Tunbridge Wells trio the Bay Rays, whose punchy rock ‘n’ roll anthems have been played plenty on BBC Radio 1 by the likes of Annie Mac, Mistajam and Huw Stephens.

Sevenoaks-based electronic producer Draper has worked with some big names in the business, including All Saints, Lapsley and Prides and he played a much talked-about set on the BBC Radio 1 Dance Stage at Reading and Leeds Festivals last year.

Tenterden singer songwriter Matt Wills has stand-out vocals and he’s written with Maverick Sabre, and his song Hurricane features Devlin. He also provided vocals on the new Wilkinson single and has recently been touring with DJ Sigala and Bastille.

Biddenden’s Shells' appearance comes hot on the heels of the release of her debut EP Shapes and was recently featured on the BBC Radio 1 playlist as the BBC Introducing Track of the week.

Opening the night will be Bexley band Glass Peaks. Since forming just over a year ago the four-piece have had both their singles made Record of the Week status.

The BBC Music Introducing in Kent airs on Saturdays at 8pm with Abbie McCarthy. To book tickets to this weekend's night visit themickjaggercentre.com or call 01322 291100.
