“Soulful….Brilliant” Daily Mirror
“Amazing…superb! Destined for Stardom”Sunday Mail
“Paloma Faith has competition from
Hannah Boleyn…A Rolls Royce of a voice” The Sun
Singer/songwriter Hannah Boleyn releases new single ‘Permission to Leave’ on 6thNovember 2015 via Tudor Gate Records.
The track is produced and mixed by acclaimed producer Ash Howes (Ellie Goulding, Kylie Minogue) .
Says Boleyn about the track “ Permission To Leave is about realising it’s ok to fight. I got drunk and had a massive argument with my boyfriend. In the morning I assumed it was over, but he said the fight wasn’t to be mistaken for “permission to leave”. I wrote the song with Paul Barry (who penned Cher’s ‘Believe’), James Jeffrey & Patrick Mascall at Metrophonic. I told them about the line ‘don’t mistake it for permission to leave’ that was circulating in my head – they loved it and that was our starting point for the song.”
Describing her sound as 'cinematic soul’, Hannah takes influences from artists such as Amy Winehouse, Lana Del Ray and Shirley Bassey.
Hannah has been confirmed as support for Lemar on his Manchester and Newcastle dates and has a string of shows scheduled across the country:
14/09 – Sage 2, Gateshead (supporting Lemar)
15/09 – Lowry, Manchester (supporting Lemar)
24/09 – Queen Of Hoxton, Shoreditch (Play It Forward)

THE NEW ALBUM, 23RDOCTOBER 2015
One - Wild Fire – Arms - The Birds - Oh Desire – Smiling – Seven - Walking On Air –
Phoenix Ava - Rising Up – Rosario - The Devil’s Hillside – Thirteen
It begins and ends with a picked guitar and a flourish of strings, weaving a melody that suggests riches to come and, at the close, an outbreath of satisfaction. Between these two codas lies a thirteen track journey that takes in soul, folk and country, introducing us to the lair of the devil in County Tipperary, South London geography, escape and escapism, love, loss, despair and, most crucially desire. ‘It’ is ‘Oh Desire’, the second studio album from Jonathan Jeremiah and his third long player release.
Recorded at Konk Studios in Hornsey on 16 track tape via live sessions over a six month period, ‘Oh Desire’ sees Jonathan perform with a settled band developed over three years of touring in the UK and across mainland Europe, where debut album ‘A Solitary Man’ made the North London based singer / songwriter a household name and led to his lauded ‘Gold Dust’ collaboration recorded with the Metropole Orkest in the Netherlands. The release of ‘Oh Desire’ in mainland Europe has seen Jonathan’s star continue to rise with a host of TV performances, celebratory reviews, sold out headline tour across northern Europe and a career defining performance at Holland’s Pinkpop Festival.
As with that debut, ‘Oh Desire’ cements Jonathan’s position as a songwriter of extraordinary ability. Drawing on his immigrant parentage, dad from a small railway town near Calcutta, mum from rural Ireland, the album sees him imagine fleeing his London base to ‘that house on the rocks in Sydney’ but also celebrating his hometown in ‘Arms’. Having begun with a strict soul album in mind, the collaborative process altered that original tightly drawn plan, creating a ‘more magpie like collection’ in its author’s words that encompasses his musical loves, honed through a childhood listening to rare soul cassettes on his paper-round and his dad’s James Taylor and Carole King albums in the family home.
‘Oh Desire’ is that most special of collections, an album versed in story and melody, an expression of a love of music and song writing to embrace and entice the listener and, as such, marks another step in the evolution of one of the UK’s most individual and exciting artists.
‘Oh Desire’ is released by BMG on 23rdOctober, 2015. The album features first single release, ‘Wild Fire’, available as an instant download to those pre-ordering the album from http://smarturl.it/OhDesireiTunes, (physical copies can be pre-ordered via http://smarturl.it/OhDesireCD) and accompanied by a stunning animated video which can be seen here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e24gouHjIBg.
Beverly Girl gets the blood racing with ‘DNA’
Electrifying track set for release on November 13th
Beverly Girl is the brainchild of Finnish natives Johanna Saarinen, Tuomas Orasmaa and Artur U. Described as ”One of 10 International artists to watch in 2015” and “the kind of music punk 80s Madonna could only dream about” Beverly Girl are impressing everyone they come into contact with.

‘DNA’ is a futuristic, dystopian song about people and technology. The song and especially the video are also inspired by dance, body language and movement. ‘DNA’ is a far cry from the first days of Beverly Girl, when demos were recorded with a £25 mic in a tiny apartment With the help of a single envelope and a CD-R the band managed to attain extensive national coverage and put themselves on the map.
Since their conception the band has been carving out a new genre in which to align themselves with. Beverly Girl were one of the first bands in their area to combine conventional funk elements with dance and house music which sets them apart from the pack. Beverly Girl is not a regular band with a regular set up. How many bands do you know intersperse drum machines with live guitar and keyboards, live choreography and dance moves? The answer is not many.
Dance has always been a massive part of the band with Johanna having experience in choreography and contemporary dance. Beverly Girl frequently invite dancers on stage with them and have DJ’d at dance parties often. With a rich blend of both musical and visual art, Beverly Girl are onto a winning formula
‘ DNA’ is set to drop on November 13th.
