Future Life who are based in Pretoria, South Africa.
Previously known as NSP where under this name they performed at the football World Cup shows in 2010 as well as the 20/20 cricket series, the band have since gone on to change their name to Future Life.
Under their new name, the band are now currently in the production phase for their debut album. The self-titled single Future Life has since been released as a taster for the album and has been described as being Big, Powerful and Meaningful all at the same time.
Details on how you can obtain their single for free, along with information on forthcoming gig dates can be found on their websites www.futurelifeband.com and www.facebook.com/futurelifetheband
Goldman who is based in Las Vegas, USA.
After growing up on the Ivory Coast of West Africa but later escaping his country as a political refugee due to the war that had erupted, Goldman soon arrived in the USA and begun pursuing his passion for music.
Having his music described as being a fusion of Pop and Hip Hop with a flare of Psychedelic Funk reverberating with Rock grit, Goldman has since gone on to perform at a number of established venues across the USA such as Whiskey A Go Go, The Cat Club, The Mint and also invited to play at the Venice Beach Music Festival.
Goldman’s new EP titled I’m Sexy is now available to purchase through iTunes and all other major download stores. Details on this along with information on forthcoming gig dates can be found on his websites www.goldmanrock.com and www.facebook.com/Goldmanmusicconnect
Arran who is based in Essex, England.
Already gaining plaudits from the likes of Lady Ga Ga’s current producer and Tony Visconti who produced David Bowie’s latest album, the future is looking increasingly bright for Arran.
Having been played on BBC radio as well as his local stations, the release of his new album titled After The Fact is likely to help increase Arran’s profile even further.

Jenn’s debut UK single ‘Jealous Of The Angels’ was championed by Smooth Radio and Radio 2 with the video receiving more than 1.2 million Youtube views and Jenn performing the song on BBC Breakfast. In November 2012 Jenn made her UK live debut when she opened for Christian Kane and she is looking forward to returning for her own tour:
“It’s been a dream of mine to perform in Europe since I started singing and the tour with Christian was absolutely incredible. The reaction from the audience was overwhelming and now I’m really looking forward to coming back and playing my own shows. I’ve been playing acoustic tours across the US for the past three years and I love sharing my stories and songs and meeting new people.”
“With her powerful voice, emotive songwriting and infectious personality, Jenn Bostic holds a natural talent that has left live audiences stunned in wonderment and yearning for more.” TheMusicPress
Part of Nashville’s burgeoning DIY scene, Jenn’s music career began when she was 10 years old, in the back seat of her father’s car with her older brother on the way to school. A horrific crash that killed her dad, a musician who taught her folk songs like ‘Sunny Side of the Street’, and turned her on to Emmylou Harris and Bonnie Raitt, changed her life forever. “The first time I sat down at the piano after the accident, I shut my eyes and honestly felt my dad's presence next to me,” she explains. “I poured my heart into those first few songs. The only way I could connect with him was when I played music. I still feel that way.”
‘Jealous of the Angels’ was produced by Barrett Yeretsian (the writer/producer of the hit “Jar of Hearts” for Christina Perri) and discovered by British DJ Simon Bates, who played it on his Smooth Radio show, where the song immediately jumped into the station's Top 10 Most Played for the week. BBC Radio 2 added the song to its playlist at the end of 2012 after Jenn performed on BBC Breakfast, as fan Fearne Cotton tipped off the show’s producers about the power in ‘Jealous Of The Angels’.
"Jealous of the Angels’ is so real, and Jenn is so real, and that kind of honesty is rare. Working with her is truly an incredible experience. I was honoured to be a part of a song so close to her heart." - Barrett Yeretsian
Jenn has won five 2012 Independent Country Music Association Awards, including Overall Winner, Best Female Country Artist, Best Musician, Best Songwriter and Country Music Song of the Year for “Jealous of the Angels.”
