The Burning Glass are an acoustic band that play powerful storytelling pop music. Edwin Brooks writes songs that tell stories and make people laugh, tap their toes, and even occasionally cry. The band use tuned percussion, ukulele, double bass, electric guitar, drums and lots of singing to bring these songs to life and have for the past 6 years been gathering fans on the UK festival circuit. Online copies of their first record continue to sell internationally and they are building a following from as far afield as the US, Canada, Japan and South Africa.

The band released their second album ‘Happiness is Egg Shaped’ in August 2017.

“The Burning Glass, a storytelling four piece led by Edwin Brooks, who left you wanting to hang out with them and listen to their stories in song form for the rest of the afternoon. The old folk technique of turning self-experiences into clever songs was never more apparent at the festival than in The Burning Glass’ witty and humorous burst of acoustic goodness.” – For Folks Sake


“Known across the UK for sets brimming with the best in Balkan Gypsy, Electro Swing and Global Beats, don’t let this DJ fool you into thinking this is all he’s got. Genre-bending and diverse, there’s no doubt you’ll be dancing”. (Womad)

“What do you call a Cloud Factory party with no Sacha Dieu? NO PARTY AT ALL. Stranger than Paradise legend and CFA resident Sacha Dieu brings all the ice queens to the yard and shreds the dance floor a new one!” (Passing Clouds events manager)

Sacha mixes different styles and genres together during his sets (Anything from 30s Swing Jazz to the latest remixes, obscurities to well known Classics). Sacha adapts his set for each new occasion.

That said, Sacha is reputed for being one of the pioneers and specialists of Balkan Gypsy, Electro Swing and Global Beats djing in the UK.
