Both Sides Now Music Residency Showcase

Both Sides Now Music Residency Showcase


Brighter Sound and Studio12 wish to invite you to a music residency showcase. The special live performance is the result of a 5-day residency aimed at female singers, songwriters and instrumentalists aged 16-25 as part of Brighter Sound’s Both Sides Now initiative for gender equality in music.

Led by singer-songwriter Bianca Gerald with support from composer and producer Christella Litras, it will explore themes of empowerment, artistic identity and authenticity for early career female musicians.


A singer, writer and visionary – Bianca’s genre hops from Pop, R&B, Soul to Dance. She has toured the world as a backing vocalist for Heather Small, performed at the London Olympics 2012 and has been playlisted on BBC Radio. Bianca’s debut work ‘The Butterfly EP’ was released in 2014 and her follow up EP ‘Feelings’ is garnering industry support, with Alan Raw naming her as one of BBC Introducing’s 2019 ‘Ones To Watch’.

Christella ‘Stella’ Litras is a multi-talented musician, producer, composer, musical director and arranger based in Leeds, who lives and breathes music. An accomplished player of four instruments and experienced Youth Worker, Stella is also the Musical Director of Caution Collective.
