Jess Psaila - Hinge Project
The Hinge Project started in the late summer of 2018, having played a few local venues before recording new material at Temple Studios in October 2019. After a self-titled debut in 2014 and the DUOs project in March 2017, the Hinge Project is the third album by guitarist Jes Psaila. The eight compositions are made up of old ideas and new tunes specifically composed for this album. The arrangements are the collective effort of the quartet which is made up of Mark Attard (keyboards), Luke Briffa (drums) and Andre’ Micallef (bass guitar), each member contributing to the band’s particular sound. The style is instrumental fusion, the music is melodic, often mellow, and embraces jazz and rock influences. The band is planning its album launch later this year.

Nadine Axisa Quartet
Nadine Axisa is an established versatile singer, with a passion for smooth jazz, latin, swing and soul music. Nadine studied jazz classics, attended and followed a number of workshops with acclaimed tutors including Tina May, Iain Mackenzie, Guillermo Rozenthuler, Donna Mc Elroy, Dennis Montgomery III and Anne Peckham.
Nadine released her debut album 'Velvet' in 2014 featuring twelve original tracks, mostly composed by Maltese composers and authors in the smooth jazz style. The album also involves a collaboration with two musicians from Germany and Italy.
In December 2019 she released her second album, “Il-Ħoss tal-Għabex”, which involves the reworking of Maltese tunes most of which were published in the 1970s and 80s. The tunes were taken through a process of re-imagination, a journey involving experimentation from a melodic, harmonic, rhythmic and sonic perspective. The album received several favour reviews whilst being awarded best album in Maltese in the Malta Music Awards 2020.
