About the Event
Oktoba is the project of Alt-folk singer songwriter Chris Athorne. Based in Brighton, Chris’s music speaks of life, love and everything in-between.
Drawing inspiration from Damien Rice, Bon Iver and Kurt Vile. Oktoba’s latest album ‘What a Life’, released September 2022, is a collection of Chris’s most personal tracks to date and has been acclaimed to be his best work yet. Written in a time of becoming a father and the emotional road it takes to get there. It reflects on a time of age and change, moving from youth too adult. With songs of reflection in tough times and the care and love we cherish from those closest to us.
‘What A Life’ is a real example to the honest depths and quality of Chris as a songwriter.
Oktoba’s music has featured over multiple episodes of Love Island, Amazon Prime’s popular series Clarkson’s Farm and Spotify curated playlists. As well wide support from BBC introducing, Amazing Radio and Sofar Sounds around the world.
Lewes based singer/ Songwriter Hui Hue began her passionate journey into the world of music at a young age, teaching herself first the piano and then the guitar at 21.

Known for her deeply emotional and unique lyrics, she has performed in small venues across the UK and Europe (including Brighton Royal Pavillion). Following the success of her debut single 'Your Silence' released in 2021, Hui Hue she was invited by the internationally acclaimed Warner Music Group to record her debut EP with them.
