With every single note planned to support the emotion of the song, the band delivers on their uncompromising vision.

The band’s vision has always been clear, and that is to write heartfelt music while retaining their commercial viability. Through a relentless and sometimes tumultuous pursuit, the solidified lineup has finally been carved into stone. These five musicians have completely embraced that shared vision, and the musicianship to make Poynte complete is now in place. This incarnation is what Poynte has needed to be to take the band to the next level.

Got Your Tongue? Video
Tall Poppies are fronted by identical twin sister songstresses Susan and Catherine Hay on vocals, bass and guitar with Diarmuid Nugent pulling at heart strings on violin and Doug Fink injecting the energy and danceability on drums. The new track 'Cat Got Your Tongue?' is an upbeat blast of guitar pop inspired by a Jane Austen novel and a night out in
Lost Embers is the solo project of songwriter and musician Johnny Boon.
Lost Embers specialises in a thoughtful brand of lo-fi pop-folk. Characterised by mature and cultured song writing, the Wales based artist is now gearing up for the release of new single 'There's Only Love', and it’s a fine introduction for the uninitiated.
Any new fans this single wins over will find themselves in good company, with Lost Embers counting a number of top music industry names and tastemakers among his fans. JD Fortune (former lead singer of INXS), Shane Lynch (Boyzone) and producer Danny Saber (Michael Hutchence) all recommend the song writer, as do Wales Online Editor David Owens.
Legendary R&B artist Bassman is set to release ‘Don’t Judge Me’, his stellar follow up to hit ‘Jamaican Grind’. Although it carries on the dance tangent it is very much a personal ode.
Inspired by hardship and medical trauma Bassman felt the best way to convey his emotions was through the medium of music. After an allergic reaction to penicillin and the concept of death very much a reality Bassman decided it was time to write about his experiences. Music saved him and he is now intent on sharing his artistry with as many people as he can.
Inspired by the music and dancing of Michael Jackson but with a more modern urban sound, Bassman is already turning heads with major urban tastemakers such as The Source Magazine and Hip-Hop Weekly. And now, with new music garnering comparisons with Flo Rida, Pit Bull and Rick Ross, he’s set for his latest assault on the music industry.
Bassman filmed ‘Don’t Judge Me’ in Las Vegas and his ability to perfectly compliment music with visuals enables him to be a forerunner in the business. The video is a brilliant amalgamation of everything Bassman is and perfect representation of his life so far.
‘Don’t Judge Me (Fast Life)’ is just the latest in a string of great, fun ideas from the artistic entrepreneur, who also works in other creative industries including clothing design, graphics design and jewellery. Music is just a part of the package, but a very impressive package it is.
Stellar new track ‘Don’t Judge Me (Fast Life) is out January 29th
dam Stafford returns with his first album in nearly three years following the widely acclaimed Imaginary Walls Collapse in 2013.
Format: 12" vinyl (with download), CD and digital
Lead Tracks: Atheist Money, Phantom Billions
Label/cat number: Song, by Toad Records SbTR-A-049
Taser Revelations was recorded at The Happiness Hotel, Song by Toad's newly aquired warehouse recording space. Utilising the warehouse's natural room reverb to great effect, the album features producer and multi-instrumentalist Robbie Lesiuk performing a variety of instruments including steel drums, organ and piano. Greggor Douglas plays the Roland Juno/omnichord and ex-Maple Leaves Anna Miles provides harmony vocals.
Continuing Stafford's trajectory into electrified alternative pop, Taser Revelations begins with some of the most melodically catchy songs he has ever written, before taking a swerve down a dark alley midway through the album, venturing into industrial syncopation, samurai-guitar attacks and some unsettling, vivid imagery.

The band’s debut album “Shaken’ Not Stirred” (12 songs), explores complex areas in people life and hard experiences what you been going trough, without any musical prejudice and without music industry pressures. The musical abandonment is present in all stages in the making of this album: composition, production, and especially in the vocal and instrumental performance. They are all truly genuine expressions of the feelings that inspired these songs
