Left Lion review 

“Headlining JT Soar were ACHB, or to give the full name, Alex and The Christopher Hale Band. New bassist Shelley has joined them and keeps Alex in hand. Belting out with passion and vigour, Alex sings from the heart, complete with some bizarre chatting about private ambulances.

ACHB sing with a element of anger and frustration about the world around them. Today, Henry Kissinger had passed away, and so Alex managed to link this in with a song in which he mentioned American Imperialism. Quick paced tunes such as Fast Forward spill out from Alex’s life and with the complement of the band, they burst forth into the world.”

ACHB performed at JT Soar on 1 December 2023


EM’s music is an amalgamation of her parents’ pop-punk, alternative, and RnB music tastes reinvented into a self-produced electronic pop package.

She has been making waves in the Midlands, playing Splendour, YNOT festival and a set at Rock City, and has recently been featured on BBC Radio 1.
