Fee Band

Both glamorous and edgy, Escala emerged from Britain’s Got Talent as the UK's most recognisable contemporary string quartet. Performing either an electric or acoustic set, they play a mix of classical and pop tunes from Handel to Wings, as on their Trevor Horn-produced album.


Fusing contemporary sounds with classical instruments, electric string quartet Escala caused a sensation in the final of ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent 2008. Their subsequent debut album, Escala, was one of the fastest selling, first week release of any debut artist that year.

Classically trained, the four members became close friends after touring as part of a large string section with boy-band McFly. After Britain’s Got Talent, they were signed to Simon Cowell’s label and have performed all over the world, including appearances on Oprah and The Today Show in the US, and Children in Need.

The girls have led BSkyB’s TV campaign for the Premier League season, and are the face of hosiery brand Pretty Polly.

Looking Ahead to International Women’s Day

Samira Ahmed, Eniola Aluko, and Alex Mahon

We were joined by four fantastic speakers to look ahead at International Women’s Day. With the theme of this year’s event being #InspireInclusion, we were lucky enough to hear from four women who have each blazed a trail in their respective fields: CEO of Channel 4, Alex Mahon; the former Australian Prime Minister and Chair of Kings’ Global Institute of Women’s Leadership, Julia Gillard; one of the leading voices in football, Eniola Aluko MBE; and broadcaster and journalist, Samira Ahmed.
