Matty T Wall Lifts You Out of the Winter Blues and Brings You Stunning 'Blue Skies'

is not only an impressive debut from one of the next generation of blues shredders, but also an album that’s bound to leave a big smile on your face."Blue Skies"It’s also an apropos title—when you consider that
- James Wood guitarworld.com

Perth born and bred Matty T Wall is already well on his way to joining legends just like Dave Hole, Bon Scott (ACDC) and the John Butler Trio. “I am like an
elastic band pulled really tight, ready to go,” he says. “That’s how I feel about my music.” In his youth following bands like Metallica and Sepultura he recognised how they honoured the blues masters before them, aspiring to be at their level he got into the blues and since Matty has "never gotten out of it.".

Having studied many disciplines such as flamenco, swing jazz and funk Matty is recognised as a master of the guitar. He wrings raw emotions from as little as a single note by bending the strings of his beloved 1961 Les Paul Custom into tantalising sounds that make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up to attention. He is not just playing music of the past though, he is redefining the genre with his modern stance and influences: "the fresh blood from dynamic youngsters Old Blood and MattyTWall, showing that age is not a factor in bringing out the Blues in people."
- By Derek Cromb, announcer on 89.7 FM’s Play The Blues., Rhythm Magazine Blues At Bridgetown 2013

The 'Blue Skies' single showcases his creative playing through the wonderfully detailed virtuosic inflections he decorates his music with.  As observed by Geoff Scott, "One of the best blues guitarists that I have ever witnessed. " from the White Star, Albany. 

'Who R Ya?'

Single Release: WHO R YA?
Label: 1-2-3-4 Records
Release date: 16th September 2016
Track Length : 3:11

“the band radiate the sense of Men On A Mission who engage both with their audience and the wider world beyond Camden.” – TOM ROBINSON – BBC 6 MUSIC
"Sisteray, are not so much “emerging” as bursting out with tuneful attitude" The Zine

"2016 is  going to be a big year for Sisteray"  Simon Raymonde  –  Amazing Radio 
Sisteray hit 2016 running bringing a punk ethos and attitude to their rousing guitar anthems. In January they were part of This Feelings Big In 2016 gigs, in February their track 'A Wise Man Said' was released as the double A side single with ‘Back To Yours’ picking up extensive radio play on BBC Radio 1/BBC Introducing via Huw Stephens, Gary Crowley and Phil Taggart, Radio X via John Kennedy and the evening playlist, and not only that, receiving huge BBC 6 Music support from Steve Lamacq, Gideon Coe, Chris Hawkins, Tom Robinson and much more.
'Who R Ya?' has been the opening song for Sisteray live sets in recent months and is a vibrant rocking call to arms against being monitored by the state, questioning the dubious credentials of people in positions of power - Who R Ya? indeed.

Like the previous Sisteray single, this track was recorded in a studio on a boat, Lightship 95 and produced by Rory Atwell (Testicles / The Vaccines / Palma Violets).

Sisteray are also establishing themselves as a formidable presence on the live scene. Playing pop-up #guerillagigs , organising their own club night Welcome To The Monkey House where they choose the bands, promote the gig and often DJ and have already played roof raising sets at Camden Rocks and the Isle Of Wight festivals this year with more confirmed. They are also not afraid to make a stand and express a point of view. They filmed the recording of a demo for another live favourite ‘Gentrification’ which has so far had over 20,000 views across Facebook and YouTube and will be participating in events this autumn including the 40th Anniversary of Rock Against Racism.

Upcoming Sisteray live shows include:

Saturday August 13th – LONDON Strummer Jam  @ The Alley Cat
Saturday October 8th – SHEFFIELD – Amp Festival
Saturday November 26th - LEEDS – Kazoopa Festival

Raised on Manga, metal and the undeniable influence of the Essex dance scene, Killatrix like to push the boundaries of rock, lacing it with electronica to create a hybrid, electro-dirt noise. Citing influences from the deep grunt of Nu Metal, the vocal genius of Gwen Stefani and old school electro, their sound is a combination of hard hitting beats, massive bass, fat guitars and gnarly synths, topped with powerful vocals.
With the Essex music scene in good health but local venues in decline, the band decided to get out into the world, building up an impressive portfolio of shows which has seen them secure festival slots at the likes of Brownstock and?V Festival, supporting reggae-metal outfit?Sonic Boom Six?as well as being asked to support one of the band?s biggest influences,?The Qemists, on their 2015 tour.

In 2015 they released their first single ?Overcome? to some acclaim, dubbed as a ?future classic? by BBC Essex Introducing?s Ollie Winiberg, and have since released the follow-up single ?Bad Language?, which has seen the band make a name for themselves in and around Essex and London. With new singles and a debut album ready to go, the band will be playing a number of supporting shows around the UK with a few European shows in the pipeline.

Previously supported: Qemists, Fratellis, Sonic Boom Six, Skarlett Riot, The Raven Age, The Hype Theory, Tek One etc
SinDii reveals ?playing live is what we do best. Every time we step up onto any stage we give it all we?ve got, always?. Chris agrees, ?We all love what we do and the music we make. There are so many ideas that we want try. It?s exciting!?.

Multi-instrumented Belfast folk-rock band The Dandy Horses

'The multi-instrumentalism of the band is showcased beautifully….The whole EP reeks of summer with a promise of good times., all rolled up in the Dandy’s Americana/country/folk good time sound. The Dandy Horses build their songs on a strong foundation of sweet memorable melody and great lyrics’ - (Mark Reid, Creative Voices NI)

‘‘One of Northern Ireland’s fastest rising folk bands’ - (Matt McCreary, Belfast Telegraph)

‘Splendid band. I really, really like them.’ - (Ralph Mc Lean, BBC Radio Ulster)
The Dandy Horses' 'Tales from Hard Luck Town' is a powerful rocky folk album with a commercial edge sharp enough to slice out their own piece of the industry, often being compared to such bands as Fleetwood Mac and The Mamas and Papas. 

'Tales from Hard Luck Town' is an 11 track album with most featuring a story or character relating to 'Hard Luck Town.' Despite there being a dark undercurrent, many of the tracks are also upbeat and lighter in tone. The album includes a murder ballad and other themes include homelessness, seeking fulfilment, being sent to prison ('Hydebank Hotel'), relationships, and drunken antics. The songs have a relatable feel, often being shaped by the band’s life experiences and observations.
Listen to the title track of the album here: 
As well as featuring on many local radio stations, such as Radio Ulster multiple times, and 6 Music they have also performed live on the only English speaking Radio Station in Ethiopia - Afro FM. They were also flown out to Ethiopia twice at the request of the Irish Embassy to perform at their St Patricks day celebrations. They have also just been booked to do their second tour of Germany.

Having performed in such places as the aforementioned is a perfect portrayal of how tangible and enjoyable their music is. Whether you're a folk fan through and through or you never thought you'd be partial to it, The Dandy Horses' New album is definitely going to be your latest infatuation.


KINGBREAKER's stunning single ‘Bury The Witness’ is out now

Taken off their debut album 'To The Fire', this wonderful track simply oozes quality throughout, a thick, darkly melodic slab of heavy riffs and driving rhythm section, all layered with the deep, emotionally drenched melodies of Spinky’s hugely powerful vocals


Kingbreaker is Spinky, Gabriel, Tom and Mikko, a new London-based band of metalheads from four different countries and two different hemispheres, drawn together by the need to play music, the desire to do something a little different, to create, to perform, to headbang, to rock.

Kingbreaker's music began as a living room collaboration between Australian bassist Tom, and Portuguese guitarist Gabriel in 2013. They had been playing together in London band Cities Will Fall for a few years prior, and conceived of a new project during the terminal stages of Cities' unfortunate demise. 

Their many subsequent riff-packed, groovy jams were fruitful, and the results were funneled into arrangements sufficient to pique the interest of Finnish drummer Mikko, and Spinky, a vocalist from Hertfordshire and fellow member of Gabriel's in The Mariana Hollow, who both joined in 2014.

Mikko's precision, power, and rhythmic song-craft, together with Spinky's truly unique and versatile voice, and evocative, enthralling lyrics and melodies, elevated the arrangements into songs distinct from and far beyond what Gabriel and Tom had first imagined. This new level of creativity and collaboration propelled Kingbreaker's songwriting forward, and by summer 2015 they'd completed ten songs that would become their debut album.

Recorded and engineered by Jamie Dodd at Hackney's Flesh & Bone Studios, To the Fire is an explosive, thunderous first effort, that energetically thrusts and bounces the listener along on an exploration of chugging riffs, venomous solos, crashing rhythms, and powerful, memorable choruses. It's a journey that shifts with ease and grace from heaviness and aggression, to introspection and frailty. From darkness to colour. From beauty to ugliness and back again. And it will always, always leave you wanting more. 

It's Kingbreaker's perfect arsenal as they set about playing on as many stages, and to as many people as they possibly can.

Spinky - Vocals / Gabriel - Guitar / Tom - Bass / Mikko - Drums



London four-piece, Sun Arcana are set to release their fifth single on the 26th of August 2016.
‘Orpheus’, self produced and recorded by the band in their own studio, was mixed and mastered by renowned producer Arthur Walwin and will be available digitally at all the major outlets.
The new single is without doubt the bands finest moment to date and looks to set to eclipse the all round acclaim of BBC Introducing favourite  ‘Nocturnal’ which has had nearly 120,000 views on YouTube since it’s release in April this year.Watch – ‘Nocturnal’: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hM2h8M9Dcoo
Sun Arcana were formed in Essex by singer and guitarist Tom Harper-Ward in 2014. He has since been joined by Ryan Daniels, Harry Acreman and Jules Wildblood and have evolved into a band of four young and talented musicians who have swiftly developed a truly unique sound. Evocative, bold and lush, the group effortlessly create songs that recall the rich textures and emotive persuasion of Radiohead, Muse and Coldplay to great effect.
Sun Arcana, who are currently in the studio putting the finishing touches to an EP, recently played a packed London headline show at the 02 Academy and will announce further dates in the very near future.

London based Chase The Day are gearing up to their album release on September 9th. 'Tabula Rasa' is an album full of the history of alt rock bringing with it a a modern approach to the sound that made great bands great.  With the emphasis firmly seated in quality of the songs, this is matched by great recordings and kick ass ass attitudes, the songs don't just tell the story, they are the story.

Being the brainchild of James Kirsch (vocals/guitar), Tabula Rasa was birthed to realise the statement that music should be able to stand the test of time, breaking out of the genre defining restraints that are so prevalent in the industry today. With a sound that gives a celebratory hat-tip to the grunge era of the late 90's, Chase The Day are releasing 'Tabula Rasa' in the hope that the music can once again be at the forefront of the music industry.

With their second single 'Forget Your Name', Chase The Day treat us all to an up-tempo statement of intent, crafted to make you not only pump your fist, but also consider a message... "Thrown into that place where I forget your name, We’ve been here before but can we start again?"

Tabula Rasa Tracklisting
01 Pariah
02 Chase The Day
03 A Little Peace
04 Forget Your Name
05 Damage Done
06 Rats In My Cellar
07 Seed
08 Just The Same
09 Across The Water
10 Honey Pot
11 Spider jerusalem
12 Dig

Tabula Rasa was produced by Tommy Gleeson, who provides this insight into the 12 month journey of making the album a reality...

"Personal highlights for me include Forget Your Name and Seed, but it’s such a dynamic record with so much light and shade throughout that I’m confident there will be something for everyone in there."

James (Vocals & Guitar) talks about the album artwork:

"We were looking for a way to express the album title and jumped off the idea of a blank slate: both the desert and water are different representations. The glass box also symbolises the womb in a way, so the idea of rebirth is explored there. Then we were extra cruel and toyed with the idea of both characters wanting what the other had, because they both saw it as a fresh start, a blank slate: Tabula Rasa."
About Chase The Day:
Plaid wearing, riff slinging, heart baring alt-rockers from London. For fans of the best bands of the 90s, massive hooks and killer riffs.

Chase The Day's debut album 'Tabula Rasa' features twelve tracks of groovy riffs and catchy hooks that will take you right back to the alt rock/grunge heyday of the 90s. Every track is different; from the swinging RATM style riffs and lush harmonies of lead single ‘Pariah’ (featured in Classic Rock Magazine's tracks of the week), through to the Nirvana-inspired introspective acoustic number ‘Just the Same’, the pop Weezerisms of ‘Across the Water’, to the thumping closer ‘Dig’.

With a full UK release on 9th September, Tabula Rasa is available to pre-order now from the bands website at www.chasetheday.com.

Artist: Big Top Heartbreak

Album: Deadbeat Ballads

Label: Two Bob Records

Release Date: October 17th 2016

                                              Deadbeat Ballads is a singular collection of songs.. Performed with a unique combination of pathos and hilarious wit. Musically it has great depth but with a fine pop sensibility, and never less than razor sharp lyrics and humour. It’s an album that could easily become a cult hit… Totally immediate but at the same time a grower. Spot on" Jim Barr – Portishead, Get The Blessing


“The music of Big Top Heartbreak is a busted carousel of hopes and fears. The album is ferocious, full of truth and visceral, heart rending gallows humour. Simply put, it’s brilliant.”  Ross Wilson – Blue Rose Code


“a deceptively misanthropic ode set to gorgeous piano and gloriously imperfect violin. Its uninhibited sadness mingles with unbreakable optimism, pinned up by Scott Lavene’s cracked baritone.”- Pop Matters



‘DEADBEAT BALLADS’ is the debut album from an original and exciting artist, Big Top Heartbreak.


Recorded in Bristol with some wonderful musicians including Quinta on saw (Bat For Lashes, Patrick Wolf), Pete Judge (Get The Blessing, Super Furry Animals), Jim Barr (Portishead) and TJ Allen (Bat For Lashes) who also produced and mixed the album.


Essex born Scott Lavene, the lead man and songwriter, wrote the majority of the songs whilst in a house for the bewildered. Alive again and hungry for the chance to make music, Scott went on tour supporting Blue Rose Code in 2015 and set about making the album. Scott’s honesty, passion and humorous takes on life are here to enjoy in these fresh and original songs.


Live, Big Top Heartbreak is both a powerful and intimate affair. Touching, funny, honest and a master class in storytelling.


The album will be released on 17thth October with a London launch party followed by a national solo tour to support the release.



Directed, written by and starring Gervais, David Brent: Life On The Road sees a documentary crew catching up with David Brent twelve years on from ‘The Office’.  Brent is now a travelling salesman, chasing his dream of rock stardom by self-financing a UK tour with his band, ‘Foregone Conclusion’.  The accompanying album Life On The Road includes songs composed by Gervais especially for the film and songs already familiar to fans including Free Love Freeway, Paris Nights, Spaceman and Equality Street.
Produced by Gervais and Andy Burrows – a successful recording artist under his own name and formerly of Razorlight – Life On The Road was recorded and mixed at Air Edel Studios in London by Nick Taylor.
"Even though the songs are funny in context, they’re not comedy songs as such,” says Gervais. “David Brent doesn’t think they’re funny. He thinks they’re important. And actually they’re not terrible songs. And they’re insanely catchy. But the tragedy comes from the fact that a 55 year old tampon rep is singing rock songs about travelling across America picking up Señoritas or trying to end racism in reggae songs while singing with a Jamaican accent. He’s also paid for the best musicians and studio time out of his own hard earned cash and pension.”
“You have to have a real knowledge and love of rock music to be able to spoof it as well as Ricky,” adds Burrows. “He’s an excellent songwriter, and these are really good songs. They’re also hilarious. Combining the two is much, much harder than he makes it appear.”
Also available is the David Brent Songbook by David Brent, out 11th August RRP £12.99 (Blink Publishing)

Info -

The lead single from the forthcoming “One Day, A Flood” debut album by The Eastern Swell is “Rattling Bones”. Written by guitarist and vocalist Chris Reeve and produced by Pete Harvey (King Creosote, Modern Studies, Meursault), it will be available to download from September 2nd and serves as an excellent primer for the album.
A multi sectioned track, after a brief calm before the storm, we’re suddenly catapulted into a dark hypnotic guitar riff with echoes of Link Wray, Duane Eddy, The Cramps and Led Zeppelin abound, before we emerge into the light and the song proper commences.
Against a gorgeous, almost Countryesque backdrop, lead vocalist Lainie Urqhuart sings about the fears of getting older and the vulnerability of love: “I’m troubled by thoughts, but I’m prepared to walk this roughshod path to its end”.
After a couple of minutes, an unexpected key change and guitar solo ushers us into the third section of the song before we return to the opening guitar riff as the song reaches its thundering climax.
The album “One Day, A Flood” is released on CD and download on Stereogram Recordings on September 16th 2016. The band play The Voodoo Rooms in Edinburgh on Sunday 18th September with support from Candythief.
Press quotes
“The songs were like stories, not just lyrically but musically, taking you to wonderful places and then moving you along to another wonderful place.” 7aheadmusic.
“Off to an auspicious start, and with such a broad musical range to draw from, a debut album is an enticing prospect indeed.” Ravechild.co.uk
“laced with country-tinged harmonies, rockabilly twangs, sweet Appalachian blues and the occasional laid-back heartbreaker” The Skinny
“touches of Americana, a tinge of country-rock and a soupcon of psychedelic folk blending organ-wash with vibrant guitar overlaid by longing female vocals, there’s something good going on here but I guess we wait for the album to really get inside their music.” Folkwords.com
“from the opening chords, listeners are engulfed and captured by their imagination. It’s master storytelling at its best.” Is This Music?

Suit of Lights.

Having dedicated his life to music since an early age, Joe Darone, pursued a career as a drummer and then in 2003 he decided to focus on songwriting allowing for Suit of Lights to be born.
The genre defying band takes its listeners on a musical adventure far into the unknown with each track. The band, named after The Matador’s Traje de luces, symbolise the beauty and brutality of life with their strong melodic sensibility with varying influences from Bach to The Buzzcocks.
Watch the video for the lead track: “Break Open the Head"
Exploring lyrical themes such as open mindedness and self empowerment, “Break Open the Head” the new album from Suit of Lights, has strong English influences with nods towards artists such as The Beatles, The Kinks and more avant-garde artists such as King Crimson. The album boasts a truly original sound which in turn generates a strong reaction from its listeners. Often being categorised as an indie rock or alternative band, they also incorporate elements of punk, synth pop, metal and even baroque.

"Even the greatest musical elitists will find something to love on this album"- RAG Magazine

Pushing the boundaries of modern music, “Break Open the Head” has the energy of punk, the immediacy of pop, the innovation of progressive rock and the timeless beauty of “serious” composers. This makes the band, and their music, distinct and innovative whilst cutting edge and acknowledging of songwriting tradition. Ultimately the band is fearless when it comes to creating music.


The Society are Harry Beresford (lead vocals/Rhythm guitar), Lew Whalley (Lead guitar/Backing vocals), Tayte Nickols (Bass/Backing Vocals) and Jason Hanley (Drums).     The band are set to release their debut single ‘Begging’ on 16-09-2016, a track which has already attracted a significant amount of positive feedback; over 100k views on their Facebook page in just under a month. Following the uploading of the original, unmastered version of the track, it began to draw waves of positive feedback from all over the UK, and helped the band to gain plaudits from far and wide.

The band met whilst attending Trafford College in Manchester.  After playing in a handful of previous bands, Lew Whalley and Harry Beresford met and instantly developed a strong musical bond, later forming the foundation of The Society.  Since then, the pair have worked together in a number of indie & rock projects, whilst continuously composing original material together. After experimenting with numerous band line ups and a range of musical styles, they began to draw on pop and dance infleunces from years gone by. This blend of genres is now at the core of The Society's fresh new sound.
In late 2015, Lew and Harry decided to seek new additions for their project. After playing in a number of local bands, Jason Hanley was looking for a change of direction and responded to an online advert. Following a successful audition, Jason joined the band in the latter part of 2015, just as The Society were beginning to experiment with a more dance-inspired indie pop sound.  The final piece of the jigsaw saw the arrival of Tayte Nickols, a talented multi-instrumentalist who had recently moved to the area. Tayte was seeking new musical opportunities, and after some prosperous jam sessions, he joined up with the band shortly before they were due to enter the studio.   The band, now complete and drawing comparisons to other artists like ‘The 1975’, ‘Coldplay’ & ‘Bastille’, steadily started growing their fan base in and around the North West following a string of successful live performances. Their presence on social media has also allowed the band to branch out and gain new fans from across the country.
 The band will be supporting Alan McGee’s ‘Musicians Against Homelessness’ project by performing at ‘The Live Room’ Manchester. They will play alongside Andy Bennett (Ocean Colour Scene) and a range of other talented acts on 07-10-2016. The band are also currently planning a future UK tour to promote their forthcoming debut album, which is set for release towards the end of 2017.

In the ten years since the Huerta-Uecke siblings started recording together they’ve released four albums, sold out tours throughout the Americas, received five Latin Grammys and a US Grammy nomination.
Now Jesse & Joy are cueing up their first official release in the UK - ‘Echoes of Love/ Ecos de Amor’. This new double-sided-double-language single will feature both the English translation and the original Spanish version of the song.
Since its release in August ‘Ecos de Amor’ has amassed 32 million streams and 66 million views of the official video (on YouTube alone). Jesse & Joy have now recorded the English version – Echoes Of Love – and will be releasing it in the UK on July 22nd 2016 coupled with the original version. Produced by Jesse and Fraser T Smith (Adele, Sam Smith, CeeLo Green, Ellie Goulding) the record blends pop, folk, Latin rhythms and Joy’s powerhouse vocals on this heart-breaking ballad.
The official video can be viewed here:

Jesse & Joy’s 2012 album ‘¿Con Quién Se Queda El Perro?’ (Who Keeps The Dog?) - their third studio album - is certified 3x platinum in Mexico and is also platinum in the US, Argentina and Chile. Their single ‘Corre’ from the record has had over 400 million views on YouTube alone and topped radio charts. The duo’s 2015 album - produced by Fraser T Smith and Martin Terefe (Jason Mraz, James Morrison, Shawn Mendes) - ‘Un Besito Mas’ (One More Kiss) debuted at number 1 across Latin American and on the US Latin Chart. Recent single ‘No Soy Una De Esas’ reached number 1 in Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, Chile as well as dominating the charts in other Latin American countries.
Along with their off-the-scale success in Latin America, the duo have also been rapidly growing a fan base across the US having sold-out shows in Miami, NYC, San Diego, Las Vegas, Houston and L.A. Jesse & Joy made their SXSW debut in Austin TX this year performing at Spotify House alongside CHVRCHES, Kacey Musgraves, Miguel and Lukas Graham.
For Jesse & Joy their music is also a tool to promote peace and non-violence throughout Latin American communities. Their efforts were recently recognised by Yoko Ono’s Non-Violence Project Foundation and they were awarded The Voice of Peace accolade in celebration of the organisation’s 30th anniversary.
The pop duo is truly exceptional. Joy’s extraordinary and unique voice, Jesse’s outstanding musical talent and their joint ability to compose such passionate arrangements combine to create heartfelt stories in the form of music.

North East band Twister.  The single will be released on 5th Sept and is from their new album Designed State of Mind which will be released on 10th October. The album launch gig is at Newcastle O2 Academy on 9th October.

Kungs – He is back! - with his 2nd Hit Single.


After a massively successful campaign on ’This Girl’ (with over 50,000 plays to date across UK Radio and 400K UK sales to date) Copmedia is proud to service his follow up single, ‘Don’t You Know’ by the 19-year-old Hit maker featuring British singer Jamie N Commons!

On July 29th, budding alt-pop newcomer Harper returns with ‘Skin’, her new EP released on ICU Label.
Described as ‘the full package’ by The 405, the South London songstress burst onto the scene earlier this year with the release of her debut EP ‘Blood Sweat Tears’, followed by a string of breathtaking live dates including the Alternative Escape stage at The Great Escape Festival. Originally hailing from Bristol, the 24-year-old chanteuse draws inspiration from her experiences as a young woman in a male-dominated industry, as well as issues of cultural diversity and tumultuous relationships. Influenced by empowered females of all genres - from Björk and Kate Bush to Beyoncé and Rihanna - the breadth of Harper’s abilities truly know no bounds.
On ‘Skin’, Harper delivers a sensual, sultry vocal over a pulsing electro beat with an instantly addictive hook, purring ‘I will be there for you / Let me cover you like skin’. Trading the brooding, emotive intensity of ‘Blood Sweat Tears’ for a sassier, urban-infused style and bold attitude, ‘Skin’ demonstrates the versatility of an artist ready to confidently tackle a range of genres.
Speaking about ‘Skin’, Harper says: "Skin is an earthy, raw, alt-pop record with a much deeper concept than you may perceive from first impressions. I wanted to write about the properties of 'skin'; how it's our protective barrier from the world, it's power to heal when cut, and apply that sentiment to my love for a person."
The ‘Skin’ EP is available to download on July 29th, including the following tracks: Skin / Pride/ Flaws/ Back Fire

After winning over festival crowds in their native Switzerland & picking up national radio and TV attention there, sleek electro-rockers Matto Rules are turning their attentions to the rest of the world. Tonight is a pulsating introduction to a band that have built a loyal European fanbase with their slick mix of pop melodies, electronica soundscapes and indie rock guitars.

With the name of the band inspired by Matto, the ghost of insanity in Friedrich Glauser’s pulp novel In Matto’s Realm, the band’s music mixes euphoric pop choruses with a restless rock escapism & electro tension. After being invited to work with acclaimed LA producer Michael Patterson (Beck, BRMC, Duran Duran) their early singles led to sold out tour dates and radio playlistings in Europe. To give Tonight and their debut album What Comes Around (out now) the right balance of studio polish and raw emotion, the band enlisted Chicago producer Ben Treimer (MuteMath, Emmylou Harris). Released earlier this year & picking up rave press reviews in Europe, the new album is already cementing Matto Rules as a musical force to be reckoned with.

Anchorage, Alaska born singer and songwriter Earl today reveals the video for her new single ‘I Love You’.
The video for ‘I Love You’ was shot in the beautifully gothic surroundings of Careville Castle, in Tullamore, Ireland. Said to be one of the most Haunted Castles in the world, Earl was immediately on board to shoot her video for the single there. The resulting clip is as dark as it is fairytale-like, and sums up Earl’s whole personality perfectly.
Born in the remote town of Anchorage, Earl grew up singing gospel in her local church choir. A beginning that has, by Earl’s own admission, shaped her sound to this day and continues to do so.
Having moved to Los Angeles aged 18 to develop her sound, Earl now finds herself in London pursuing her musical ambitions to the full. After being championed by the BBC Introducing team and seeing her first independent release being playlisted at Radio 2, Earl got her first record deal and signed to the legendary BMG Record label. She is currently working on her debut album, set for release in early 2017.
The first single from that debut will be ‘I Love You’, released on September 9th. ‘I Love You’ is a laid back piece of jazz tinged summer soul, with a classic production showcasing Earls incredible voice and the simplicity of her song-writing perfectly.
The track release will follow Earls BBC Introducing ‘LIVE FROM MAIDA VALE’ session, which airs on Jo Whiley’s Radio 2 show on 23rd August.
Earl releases ‘I Love You’ on Sept 9th through BMG Records

THE SPITFIRES announce highly anticipated Second Album 
‘A THOUSAND TIMES’ Released AUGUST 26th on CATCH 22 Records + 2016 UK Headline Tour Dates.
Tickets on sale now: tinyurl.com/athousandtimestour

Watford quartet The Spitfires are extremely pleased to announce their ‘A Thousand Times’ 2016 UK headline tour dates throughout August, September, October and November. Tickets are on sale now at: tinyurl.com/athousandtimestour

The dates are in support of their highly anticipated second album ‘A Thousand Times’ which will be released on 26th August 2016 via Catch 22 Records. Fans can preorder the record now, here: thespitfires.tmstor.es

The album is the follow-up to the critically acclaimed debut ‘Response’ which saw the band enter high in the UK Album Charts and reach #6 in both the independent and vinyl charts, with their recent single ‘So Long’ charting at #1 in UK Vinyl Singles Chart. Building on the success they’ve managed to establish so far, ‘A Thousand Times’ looks certain to cement their reputation as one of the most vital young bands of their generation.

Their work ethic and powerful song-writing mixed with their acute social commentary and lack of mainstream industry support has made this fiercely independent band one of the most popular underground success stories in the UK today. This DIY attitude and independent spirit has earned them a dedicated following and sold out shows across the whole of the UK and Europe.

Across the 11 tracks on ‘A Thousand Times’ it’s possible to detect a sharper, deeper vision for the band and a more honed song-writing craft than we’ve previously seen. Indeed, first single ‘So Long’ was a taste of things to come, reaching number one in the UK Vinyl chart.

The classic pop theme is carried into the title track and the stunning ‘On My Mind’ with tracks like ‘Day to Day’ and ‘Return To Me’ showing a natural progression in style, whilst the thrilling ‘I Don’t Even Know Myself’ shows influence from dub, reggae and ska, all hinting at bigger things (and venues) to come.

All songs are written by Billy Sullivan and the album is produced by Tom Pullen at CDS Studios in Chelmsford.

‘A Thousand Times’ is released 26th August on Vinyl, Limited 7” Boxset, CD and Digital Download

‘A Thousand Times’ Tracklist:
A Thousand Times
Last Goodbye
Day To Day
Open My Eyes
On My Mind
So Long
I Don’t Even Know Myself
The Suburbs (We Can’t Complain)
Return To Me
On My Mind (Reprise)
A Better Life

What the press said about 2015 debut ‘Response’:

”Just about the best thing released this year”  –  Vive Le Rock
“A snarling proletarian polemic against the daily grind”   –  Classic Rock
“The fight-back from the beaten generation starts here”  –  The Daily Mirror
“Gaining more and more friends with their stunning live shows”  –  Fred Perry

Elles Bailey
Her husky toned, lived-in voice sounds like she has a 60-a-day habit, was caused by a serious illness when she was three causing her throat to almost close up! 

"Elles Bailey gave it all, the complete package, energy, swagger and soul, whilst her band matched her passion and drive laying down hook after hook. Blues Princess, maybe, but with performances like this Elles will soon be taking the throne by storm" Live Review - Blues in Britain 

'A smoky blues-rock record that fizzes with pop appeal' Songwriting Magazine 

Nowadays Elles and her band (made up of some of Bristol’s brightest and finest) are currently tearing up the UK and European scene, scoring raves reviews at every place they play from Bristol to Berlin, with energy packed hi-octane performances. That trademark gravelly voice providing the lead. 

She is backed in the studio by well known producer Brian Banks (of Michael Jackson, Lionel Richie collaboration) and Elles is certainly headed for big things. And rightly so, this captivating, hard-working songstress mixes the soul of the blues & blends of country with a contemporary edge, featuring meaningful and personal lyrics, big anthemic choruses and smooth blends of pop sensibilities. Her songs showcase her amazing vocal talent and her band’s incredible musicianship. She has been featured numerous times in print and on radio, had one of her songs used on an iShares advert and has been steadily building a dedicated following from the sensational live performances.

Her last EP features Spencer Ludwig on the second track ‘Heart Go Oooh’. Ludwig, plays trumpet for the LA band Capital Cities, who had a top ten hit with their single ‘Safe and Sound’ and have just finished opening for Katy Perry on her Prismatic Tour. Elles had a busy 2015, releasing her ‘Who am I to me EP’ and touring the UK and Europe in January, February and March then playing the summer festival circuit, and doing a mini tour in October. 2016 is set to be even busier - She has currently just finished an extensive tour of Europe taking the south of the UK, Holland, Belgium, Germany and Austria, finishing on home town soil with a slot at The Bristol Jazz & Blues Festival.  

What’s next for Elles Bailey? She has some great festival slots booked for the summer of 2016 including a slot on the British Stage at The Colne Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival. She will be touring the UK with her band throughout September and October and joining Wille & The Bandits to open for them on part of their tour at the end of October. 

As well as writing and touring her own music Elles actively supports new talent in the music industry. She has just taken a post as Head of Production & Host of Positively Talented, the newest station brought to you by Noel Edmonds, part of his PositivityRadio.World. Positively Talented provides a global stage for singers, musicians, producers and writers who want to break into the tightly controlled music industry.

Fall children -


This has to be one of the most exciting bands to emerge from South East Coast of England this year, they have already been hailed as “the young Who” and it’s not hard to see why. Their energetic new single ‘Don’t Waste My Time’ taken from their debut album ‘All Departures’ released August 26this dripping with classic British rock style and raw passion.


The three young men behind this wall of sound are front man Dylan Smith whose subversive vocals and punk inspired guitar riffs power through each of the tracks on their forthcoming album. Freddie Smith’s 60’ keyboard style brings back haunting echoes of a retro Hammond that further defines the bands definitive sound and Francis Whitley’s frantic but precise drumming draws parallels with the maestro himself Keith Moon, who once said, to get your music to be a little more forceful, hit the drums harder.

So suffice it for us to say, this is a band to certainly watch out for …

KILLATRIX release their fabulous new single FRFGT (Firefight) on 5th August

Following on from the release of single 'Supersonic', the band are really starting to make a name for themselves now, this awesome, high energy bunch blast out a great big chunk of exceptionaly groovy rock with a twist and a shake, seriously dance inducing stuff!

They put on a fantastic live show and you can catch them at the following shows, more are currently being confirmed: 

Upcoming live shows:
5th August, Chinnerys, Southend supporting MIND
28th August, Sutton Arms (acoustic), Southend On Sea
9th September, Facebar, Reading supporting Brutai
10th December, Asylum, Chelmsford

Mini album KLTRX will be released on the 19th August.


Raised on Manga, metal and the undeniable influence of the Essex dance scene, Killatrix like to push the boundaries of rock, lacing it with electronica to create a hybrid, electro-dirt noise. Citing influences from the deep grunt of Nu Metal, the vocal genius of Gwen Stefani and old school electro, their sound is a combination of hard hitting beats, massive bass, fat guitars and gnarly synths, topped with powerful vocals.
With the Essex music scene in good health but local venues in decline, the band decided to get out into the world, building up an impressive portfolio of shows which has seen them secure festival slots at the likes of Brownstock and V Festival, supporting reggae-metal outfit Sonic Boom Six as well as being asked to support one of the bands biggest influences, The Qemists, on their 2015 tour.

In 2015 they released their first single Overcome to some acclaim, dubbed as a future classic by BBC Essex Introducings Ollie Winiberg, and have since released the follow-up single Bad Language, which has seen the band make a name for themselves in and around Essex and London. With new singles and a debut album ready to go, the band will be playing a number of supporting shows around the UK with a few European shows in the pipeline.

Previously supported: Qemists, Fratellis, Sonic Boom Six, Skarlett Riot, The Raven Age, The Hype Theory, Tek One etc
SinDii reveals playing live is what we do best. Every time we step up onto any stage we give it all weve got, always. Chris agrees, We all love what we do and the music we make. There are so many ideas that we want try. Its exciting!.

The band have just released an exciting new music for single 'Drawing All The Lines' which is set to kick things off for the quintet this year. Lit Like Vegas are a band to sit up and take notice of!

Airy alt-rock anthem ‘Invented’ from Southampton sensation Cameron Davidson

“Really Good Pop songs” – Melita Dennett, BBC Introducing: The South

“His most recent song, ‘Invented’, has a bit of a Coldplay feel about it, with more than a vibe of Americana. It’s a really airy, light, eminently re-playable song, and a brilliant showcase of his talent.” – Essentially Pop
“Polished to perfection, Open Your Eyes is a fantastic track which if there is any justice in the world should be destined for your radio while the song’s creator may also be destined for bigger and better things.” – The Musical Outcast
Already favoured as one of BBC Introducing’s best acts of 2015, Southampton-based Cameron Davidson hopes to build on his success this year, showcasing a mesmerising alt-rock sound that is entirely his own invention on his latest single ‘Invented’.

The singer-songwriter formerly fronted Southampton five-piece 6 Minutes to Sunrise and has previously shared the stage with the likes of Lonely the Brave, Natives, Man Made, Funeral for a Friend and Nothing but Thieves.
Watch the lyric video for ‘Invented’ here:
Now focused on a solo career, the artist handles all elements of his music, writing, playing and recording all instruments himself.

Alongside ‘Invented’ Cameron has also recently released energetic rock number ‘Open Your Eyes’, as well as soaring single ‘Sundowns and Hurricanes’ – both of which you can hear below.
Watch the video for ‘Open your Eyes’ here: 

Watch live session version of ‘Sundown and Hurricanes’: 
Cameron has had a life-long passion in music, working as an assistant in a recording studio when he was younger. He is also the son of comedian Jim Davidson showing that being a performer is in his blood.
Artists that he been compared to include Kings of Leon, James Bay, One Republic and Snow Patrol.

The Curious Incident



Impact Date: 2nd Sept   Label: Cat String Records.

But who are The Curious Incident?


Well they are a cool duo who have come from all over the globe, making music that is accessible, fun, light-hearted and very tongue-in-cheek.


Kairo and Diaz, met at school in The Netherlands before Kairo moved back to South Africa. Years later, with Diaz attracted to the sun and sea (and World Cup) in South Africa, the two paired up to start a life as penniless musicians and then moved to the UK to raise The Curious Incident together.


Their sound wavers from cheeky indie to pop infused indie rock with a Caribbean twist but the one consistent theme is that this two-piece will turn your frown upside down! Whilst in the studio mixing their new material, the guys decided to add a little pre-release boost, by offering you a visual treat from their current EP Penny Lonesome with this great video – entitled ‘Money’ - an exploration into the highs of lows of having the green stuff.


This video reflects The Curious Incident – with its feel good factor that reflects the fun and wit of the band!


With BBC Introducing London and features plays on XFM, Absolute Radio etc along with a glut of premieres and features on TimeOut ("Local Heroes"), Baeble ("arena-ready, world music, pop-rock with legitimate lyrical depth"), Gigslutz, Vinyl District, Popmatters, It's All Indie, Popwrapped, all picking up on their well produced music & videos, it is rude not to introduce you guys to "Money" - just another one of their visual treats.

New hypnotic track ‘Element’ and upcoming album from alternative pop trio The Hallows
UK alternative pop trio The Hallows gear up for the release of their debut album with this brand new hypnotic single ‘Element’.
As the group explains: ‘element was one of the first songs recorded and it helped to set the overall tone of the album. It was written as a positive and uplifting song about looking up to someone you love and the profound influence they can have on your life’.
Watch the video for Element here:
Listen to the track on Soundcloud here:
Championing their own very unique sound, The Hallows are an enchanting concoction of Kate Bush, Muse, Portishead and Tori Amos with their own individual dreamy essence thrown in.
The group’s eclectic sound is a result of the band members’ individual musical meanderings. Sarah has played as a backing vocalist/keyboard/Glockenspiel for Hafdís Huld supporting the likes of Paolo Nutini, Mika and Bloc Party at festivals as large as Glastonbury and SXSW. Joe meanwhile has supported notorious cult pornographic band Rock Bitch (a band renowned for rarely sporting support acts). He and Sarah have also shared the stage with Ronan Keating playing a number of television performances.
Meeting at university, the band shared a house together, in which third band member Dave subjected the group to strict drinking game rules, whilst also ensuring they all ate proper meals (now holding the unofficial title of ‘band chef’).
Sarah has played the role of Snow White whilst working at Disneyland – several elements of this fantasy world clearly making their way into the mystical sound of ‘Element’. As a child, Sarah also lived by a zoo and was kept often awake by roaring lions (the lions would often set the wolves off too, which sounds absolutely terrifying!)
Since forming, the group have been hands on with all aspects of their music including coming up with video concepts, artwork, set design, production and blogging.
Their upcoming album Of Time and Tides is out August 29th and the single ‘Element’ is out July 4th
The group explain: ‘The album is about life, relationships and how things can change over time. The album was written in the spirit of a bygone era because we wanted to encapsulate elements within all our lives that have influenced us both musically and personally. Sarah draws inspiration for the lyrics from the elements because they represent the never ending cycle of life and time in which we exist for a moment. We have combined these influences to create an album that displays our love for atmospheric instrumentation, lush melodies and, hopefully, pop songs you will want to sing along to.’

Elegantly Wasted have toured Europe 5 times, including large festival dates in Switzerland and Germany and the US twice. They are regular performers at the best rock clubs in Los Angeles. Both their debut album “Greetings from a Strange Place” in 2003 and its follow-up “Desolation Row”
in 2007 have produced songs that generated radio airplay both in the US and Europe and the anticipation in both markets for “The Dog Years” will certainly see the momentum build.

Elegantly Wasted are now promoting their music to the UK with a new recording of "Love is a Killer"

Artist: Jeff Finlin

Title: Life After Death – The Essential Jeff Finlin

Release Date: September 9th

Label: Man In The Moon Records


“Finlin writes with a minimalist grit of Sam Shepard and Raymond Carver. Tune in for an elusive magic.”- The Chicago Sun Times 

“Some folks come to Nashville, amble over to music row and look for a cookie cutter solution. Hand Jeff Finlin a cookie cutter, and he’s liable to melt it down and then forge it into something sharper and more dangerous.”- Peter Cooper, The Tennessean

Video for album track ‘I Killed Myself Last Night: https://youtu.be/SdP1hWDTAJ0


Rising from the ashes of the self- a voice appears. Though the voice has been there all along it’s been muffled by the sound of a train that carries the load of youth, ambition, want and a lust for more.  Once that train stops rolling it reveals its musings. This voice ruminates in the work of Jeff Finlin.

Jeff Finlin’s work is funny, insightful, playfully sardonic, and capable of exhuming archetypal musings from its listeners. It documents a vivacious spiritual path in poetry and song.  In this respect, Finlin’s work represents a kind of modern day American Rumi-ism. 

New album ‘Life After Death’ is somewhat of a ‘best of’ or ‘an introduction to’, featuring 20 key tracks for those who have not crossed paths with this maverick and prolific songwriter. Spanning his back catalogue, this collection seeks to show the depth and diversity of Finlin’s composition, creating a full picture of him in 2016.

Born in Cleveland, Ohio, the grandson of Irish railroad workers (who seemed to be in the habit of leaping from trains), music, writing and travel became fascination for Finlin. He began with a wanderlust, traveling America using every form of transportation, with the exception of tuk tuk  (still on the bucket list). Having played in bands in Boston, Ohio and L.A, he finally wound up in Nashville with long-time mate and Academy Award nominee Gwil Owen to form the rock band The Thieves.  They released the acclaimed ‘Seduced By Money’, produced by Marshall Crenshaw on Capitol Records. Venturing out on his own he went on to produce the self-released ‘Lonely Light’ before going on to produce the Little Dog/ Mercury release, ‘Highway Diaries’.

Never one for the convention of Nashville, he moved to the far west of America and set up shop. For the last 12 years he has been delivering writing and music of depth and candor that has consistently made its appearance around the world.  His song “Sugar Blue” found its way into Cameron Crowe’s feature film “Elizabethtown” alongside the likes of Tom Petty, Elton John, Lyndsey Buckingham and My Morning Jacket.  This new compilation of his work from brand new West London based label Man In The Moon Records represents a distinctive core of his music and poetic thought.

Sober since 1997, Finlin took up the practice of yoga to enhance and promote his spiritual life.  His resulting work documents a spiritual path of experience that became the main focus and structure of his art and life. He recently began work on a foundation called Recover.Yoga with the hopes of giving back the practice of yoga to people in all forms of recovery. Jeff has also just released a new book of poetry which will probably blow a few minds alongside his prosaic music, it’s entitled ‘The Seduction Of Radha’.

Jeff Finlin has always carved out his own path. Tune into “Life after Death”—you’ll hear an elusive magic.

Life After Death – The Essential Jeff Finlin is released on September 9th on Man In The Moon Records.

Alessia is arguably Europe’s best known female drummer having done session work for Jeff Beck and particularly noted for her drumming on Jeff Beck's Grammy Award winning track 'HAMMERHEAD' featured on the album 'Emotion and Commotion'. 

Other key elements of Alessia's career: opening act with italian pop band B-Nario of Michael Jackson's gig at S.Siro stadium in Milano (June 1997), touring member with italian popstars Eros Ramazzotti, Massimo Ranieri, Dario Baldan Bembo, headliner at Lyon Bag' Show (2004) Montluçon international drumming festival (2005) and Torino drumming festival (2006). 


Amy Danielle is a singer/songwriter from Manchester, England. 

In her on words “I started singing when I was in Year 4 at Kingsway Primary School. I had decided I wanted to go on Britain's Got Talent, to which my Mum told me I should find a talent first (thanks Mum). I already knew what I was going to do, but I ran upstairs, rehearsed the song once more, she came upstairs and I sang. Since then, I haven't stopped. (Literally) I originally went to Flixton Girls High School, but realised in Year 8, it wasn't for me. So I moved to Altrincham College of Arts (ACA). The time I spent there was precious, and although I wouldn't go back, and hated it while I was there, and spent most of my time skipping PE, annoying teachers and ending up with a lunch detention, it taught me a lot about life.I now spend my life pretending to be other people, whilst attempting to look like a ballerina and quoting show tunes 24/7. In other words, I'm a musical theatre student at Pendleton College. Which is fab! Away from college, I write songs on my ukulele and sing them at people. It's fun.” 


Mai is mostly known for her work with Estonian pop sensation KERLI, Swedish singer-songwriter Linnea Henriksson and her own jazz-fusion group MaiGroup that she formed in 2010 from the most remarkable Swedish young musicians. MaiGroup has released two albums: “Luv” (2013) and “You” (2015) consisting of original compositions written, arranged and produced by Mai herself.

Keyboardist and band's main composer, Marcello wrote his first hit in 1996 (I Wish You, Proprio Records) for italian dance pop band LIES IN A BOX. In 2011 Marcello wrote a set of rock variations on the first 8 bars of "I DUE FOSCARI" by Giuseppe Verdi, arguably the most influent italian opera composer during Risorgimento, then performed live with Alessia, guitarist Mario Pignatelli, bassist Roberto Cassetta and flute player Marco Giaccaria during the opening day of the official celebrations to commemorate 150 years of italian political unity. 

Married with Alessia since 2009. 


After having begun studying trumpet at the age of 6,  Ludovic shifts to the guitar influenced by Toto and Queen.

Taking his musical cues from the Northern indie icons of his childhood, Yorkshire singer-songwriter James George has released his debut single Make You Mine. The track is a storming two minutes of classic indie rock n’roll showcasing brooding guitars, infectious melodies & shimmering synths.
Coming from a musical family & falling in love with rock n’ roll as a boy, George was always destined to become a songwriter. Despite Make You Mine sounding like the efforts of a tight-knit gang of hungry young upstarts, the music is all created by George himself. This ability to lay down classic rock solos, thumping drums & catchy vocals himself means that although he shares DNA with indie-dancefloor staples Arctic Monkeys & Kasabian, he’s closer to the auteur approach of musical mavericks like Jack White & Beck. Taking a similar control of production duties, George is as focused as they come. The result is a short & darkly sweet blast of garage rock perfect for radio playlists & sweaty gig singalongs. With new fans discovering his music on social media every day, and Make You Mine already picking up over 10,000 streams online, the future looks very bright for this new British artist.
James George will be playing shows in support of the single. For more info, head tohttp://www.jamesgeorgemusic.com

Those Unfortunates are a London four-piece who write songs aiming for the wit and warmth of The Kinks, Television Personalities and Syd Barrett. Letter Writing Man is their third single proper, and their first for Stereogram Recordings.

Those Unfortunates wear herringbone coats and oxblood shoes without ever really managing to look rakish.They are self-deprecating, for the most part, and self-contained. They sound harder than they sound.

Those Unfortunates could have been renaissance men, but they never had the French. For the purposes of this biography, however, they have rather narrow tastes, and enjoy the authors Alexander Baron, Patrick Hamilton and Colin MacInnes.

Both of the band’s previous singles have received repeat plays from BBC 6 Music DJs including Steve Lamacq, Gideon Coe and Tom Robinson, who described them as ‘daft and irresistible... [with] the lightness of touch and complete assurance found among all genuine Great British Eccentrics.” They have also performed a live session on Resonance FM
In 2015, they played the final gig at the (squatted) 12 Bar Club on Denmark St, before the police moved in. They’ve also hosted Unlondon, a free festival of music, art and literature inspired lost, unloved and forgotten London.  In January 2016, they also put on Those Unfortunates’ Own Double Entry, an esoteric celebration of optimism and positive action which featured their friends, Firestations, along with socialist magic.

On 27 August, they return the Aaahhwoo festival just outside Berlin, which they have headlined for the past three years. A follow-up single is planned for September 2016, with an album to follow shortly after.

Velvet Kills is an electropunk/rock duo with Susana Santos on vocals/bass & Harris Iveson on guitar/synths.

Velvet Kills is a thoroughly modern and urban endeavour, speaking directly to today’s society - with all its anxieties, addictions, destructiveness as well as  exhilaration.  You'll find in their driving beats raw emotion, and a terrific darkness. The sound is complex, almost abstract - a combination of cinematic textures, gritty guitars, and potent vocals.

The group's music and attitude, both have  been shaped by the influences of bands and artists like Joy Division, Alan Vega, Malaria!, Kas Product, Iggy Pop, The Clash, and Lou Reed. The group came to life in 2015, beginning with a chance encounter on a trance dance floor where Susana and Harris discovered their mutual love for rock, synths and beige Steinberger guitars.

Velvet Kills has since gained a steady following, leading to their debut EP, Memory released in March 2016.

Hattie Briggs's second album was released on 8th July.  It's been quite a year for the 23 year old singer/ songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, resulting in a 30+ date headline UK tour, key festival performances, European and US/Canadian dates, plus amazing reviews.
Hattie was picked up by BBC Introducing in 2014 and became a BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award nominee the same year.  She quit Oxford University during the 2nd year of a Russian degree to start her musical career in January 2014. Since then, her music has been played on TV on BBC 2, BBC Radios 1, 2 and 6Music as well as many regional BBC and independent radio stations.
She released her debut album 'Red & Gold' in 2015 which also received stunning reviews, including Q magazine, The Independent and  Maverick. The album reached No. 1 on the Amazon Digital Folk Chart and No 20 in the iTunes Singer/Songwriter Chart shortly after its release. Two songs from the album also made the final of the  UK National Songwriting Competition.
'Red & Gold' won the Laurel Canyon Music Best Debut Album Award for 2015, and Hattie won their Best New Artist award alongside it. In 2015, she performed over 100 shows, including key festival slots at Cheltenham and Cambridge Folk Festivals, plus numerous European dates.
Her new album, “Young Runaway”, showcases the more uptempo feel of her songwriting. The album has a wide range of instruments - alongside Hattie’s piano, guitar, violin and signature cellos, are catchy banjo, ukulele and lead guitar parts, along with the addition of some virtuoso pedal steel playing courtesy of Matt Park (The Feeling).  These are great additions to Hattie’s stunning vocals.
Key live 2016 performances already include sell out performances at The Stables, Wavendon, St. Pancras Old Church, London and the Subscription Rooms in Stroud - her official launch where she played as a 7 piece band, and the South Bank Centre, London. Her showcase 30 gig national tour, includes Green Note and several other London venues, a club stage showcase at Cambridge Folk Festival, Cornbury Festival, Secret Garden Party and the Maltings, Farnham, with a week in the middle in the Netherlands - her second visit there.
Inspired by the likes of Joni Mitchell, Eva Cassidy and James Taylor, Hattie recorded her second album at Monnow Valley Studios, produced by Peter Waterman (Jack Savoretti/Uriah Heep/Emma Ballantine).
2015 gigs/festivals included:
Cheltenham Jazz Festival, Cambridge Folk Festival
London Folk Festival, Gloucester Guildhall (with Stornoway)

Info -

Debut album Crayon Soul released 5th August 2016 via 3Beat
Crayon Soul is debut album from New York based modern psychedelic band Corbu. Produced by Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev, Tame Impala). It’s modern because instead of referencing classic rock of the 60s and 70s, they take their psychedelic inspiration from Warp Records acts like Aphex Twin, Squarepusher and Boards of Canada. Corbu are Jonathan Graves, who writes, sings, plays instruments and designs artwork; and Amanda, who writes and plays synths.
Woozy, dreamlike psychedelia is a defining feature of the music that Corbu now make together, but it’s also informed by the artists the pair have grown into later in life like Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada and In Rainbows-era Radiohead. Once Jonathan and Amanda began collaborating and writing songs together, Corbu became a way for them to use the music they love to tap into their collective unconscious. Their resulting debut album, Crayon Soul, is a record about finding your way back to a childlike and joyous mental state.
The last song to be written for Crayon Soul was ‘Battles’, a song about the fight to be creative.  “It's about the struggles of trying to go against the grain in anything in life, but I always wanted it to be really joyful," says Jonathan. “It’s about battles, but we wanted there to be a feeling that you're sort of winning."
While writing the album, Jonathan and Amanda always only had one name in mind for the person they wanted to mix it: Dave Fridmann. Having made his name working with artists like The Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev, they knew he was the one person who would understand the aesthetic that they wanted Crayon Soul to have – and they personally contacted him to invite him to be a part of the project.
With Fridmann’s help, Corbu have succeeded in their ambition to create a truly immersive record. Crayon Soul is a thoroughly modern psychedelic record, but more than that, it’s a journey through space and sound back to our own collective childhoods.

Treading a similar path to Katie Melua, Georgian singer/songwriter Salio, has also been causing quite a stir with her soulful debut single ‘Wayside’ taken from her debut EP ‘Lost World’ released July 1st. The video for ‘Wayside’ premiered on The Telegraph and received very positive feedback throughout the country. The title track of the EP ‘Lost World’ is about growing up in a repressive place that offers little opportunity for a bright future.

Salio was spotted at the Black Sea Festival in the Republic of Georgia by producer Quint Davis, who organizes the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. He was so blown away by her performance that he invited her to perform at the festival. Once there, she wowed audiences of thousands and sang with jazz and gospel greats. Shortly afterwards, Salio was invited to perform at the Blue Note in New York, where she again received a standing ovation.

She won her first singing competition at the age of six, wrote her first song when she was 11, and was convinced that her singing talents would help her escape the awful poverty she was experiencing.

The 2nd single taken from the highly anticipated debut album ‘Never’ is the big production number ‘My Ship’  -  A Bondesque power ballad that would fit perfectly into any 007 franchise where Welsh-songstress FFI would sit snugly alongside her fellow countrywomen Shirley Bassey.
To celebrate the release, Ffi and her incredible band of musicians, will be performing at London’s Venue 229 on 28th September which promises to be a gig NOT TO BE MISSED! The debut album features a stellar cast of musicians like no other, with guys who have graced the stage and studio with the likes of Peter Gabriel, Elvis Costello, Paulo Nutini, Barbara Streisand , Robbie Williams, Jamiroquai, Rod Stewart, Tina Turner, Eric Clapton, Ray Charles and Sir Tom Jones, to name but a few.
The first single ‘Take It Or leave It’ has been gracing UK and international airwaves for the past couple of months proving to be a real DJ and listener favourite. Other tracks from the album have been picked up by Jazz stations across the globe showing Ffi’s diversity and popularity amongst serious music lovers.
Born in Cardiff and adopted at 3 months old, Ffi was introduced to the piano at the age of 5 by her mother. Quickly learning to play by ear, she began writing her first songs at a very early age. Realising her obvious natural gift, her parents enrolled her in formal lessons and she was classically trained on both the piano and violin. She then progressed on to the saxophone and then the drums at the age of 10.
Despite having all this talent, Ffi was still essentially a grounded welsh tomboy. Wanting to find her voice she sang in chapel and at school, only to be told to sing quieter because her vice was so loud and deep! Thankfully, this never put her off and she took to singing just like all the other instruments presented to her.
At 14, she got a part on a Welsh TV drama and pursued a successful acting career appearing in a variety of dramas on TV and stage before progressing on to national and beyond. Her screen CV boasts playing the daughter of the late, great Philip Madoc in the hugely popular ‘A Mind To Kill’, along with roles in ‘Doctors’ and ‘Torchwood’.
Whilst being an actress, she continued to study her first love, music and went to Goldsmith’s College, University of London, and it was there that she started to work and perform with some of the biggest names in the business.

England by The National is being released by Irish chart-toppers The Young Folk as a song specially for the UK, ahead of their UK album release later in the year through the Pixie Pace/ARC Music label. England is currently playlisting on national Irish radio and has been given a big thumbs up by The National.
