 Catherine O’Rourke

The super talented Catherine O’Rourke from Brighton performs heartfelt rock, pop and homespun ballads. Catherine is back by popular demand for her second Soda Beat gig, bringing with her some serious 80′s vibes. Catherine performs regularly on the Brighton scene where she has a dedicated following of fans. We like to think Croydon must be her second home by now!

 White Heath

Veering from the raucous to chaotic, to intimate and personal, combining engaging arrangements and inventive instrumentation with a strong, melodic sensibility.

 We Rise From The Fallen

A Croydon based rock band with punk influences. Having only recently played their first gig at Soda Beat #5, the band has been frantically working in the studio on new material. Enormously popular at the February Soda Beat there is sure to be excitement surrounding them again at this event. They are a really exciting prospect.
