At this monthly event at the Lexington, BBC Introducing showcases artists from different genres of music that they bank on being big hits in the coming months. This time it’s the turn of alternative pop whizkid Easy Life, neo noir singer songwriter Moncrieff (a former backing singer for some mega artists including Adele) and York-based indie band, The Howl and The Hum to take to the stage.
