Honey Ryder Brand New Single "What If We've Only Got Tonight" / Release date 15th January 2016
New Album "Born In A Bottle" / Release date 15th January 2016
Having firmly established themselves within the inner circle of Nashville's elite, UK band Honey Ryder return to spearhead the British country crossover invasion with their 3rd studio album, 'Born In A Bottle'.
Featuring co-writes with Tom Douglas [Lady Antebellum 'I Run To You'], Rivers Rutherford [Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Brad Paisley] and Blair Daly [Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban], the trio headed back to Ocean Way Nashville for the bulk of the recording, and were mentored by legendary producer Paul Worley [Lady Antebellum, Dixie Chicks].
'What If We've Only Got Tonight' is the first single from the album. It was co-written in Nashville with Blair Daly (who has penned hits for Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Rascal Flatts), the co-write having been set up by Paul Worley. The lyrics talk about a couple involved in a petty argument - where no-one is prepared to give in and take responsibility. After a while they realise the futility of the situation and question whether they would behave in the same way if they only had one day left together……
The new album follows on from the success of 2nd album Marley's Chains, which spawned several Radio 2 playlists as well as being Album Of The Week across the Smooth Radio Network and Music Week, and TV appearances and performances on BBC Breakfast, ITV This Morning, and C5 Live with Myleene Klass. Lead track Marley's Chains was synced in the hit ABC series Body Of Proof. Internationally, the album received strong support in Canada, Holland, and most recently Denmark, where the band enjoyed Top 20 airplay.
Honey Ryder start their headline tour of the UK commencing in February 2016.

The New Single from New York City based Luke Rathborne, “Losing It” sees him following up on the promise of last LP, “SOFT” in fine Prince-like, Fine Young Cannibals meets 70’s come Kraut Rock form and some of the aural Spaceyness of War on Drugs at their best. The track finds Rathborne lost in a swirl of synths and falsetto while bassist Darren Will whirrs along locked tightly with Drummer Jamie Alegre’s groove, with Rathborne filling out all the rest of the instruments, keys, percussion, dripping electronics, and wash of tangled guitars and JUNO synthesizers.
Rathborne is announcing the upcoming March full length LP release, “AGAIN”, the follow-up to 2014’s, “SOFT” (garnering over 3 million streams on Spotify in the past few months) on his own label True Believer, along with a Co-Headline Tour with Captured Track’s Alex Caldner across the USA this Spring with UK dates to be announced.
Produced by Ted Young (Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth) and Luke Rathborne the album is a Post-glam look at a young drifter’s Metropolitan adventures, while slowly losing his cool.
Marcus Nand announces new album featuring lead track ‘Time And Tide Wait For No Man’
Single out January 22nd
Marcus Nand, born in Merseyside and currently living in Los Angeles is set to release a full length album ‘Time and Tide Wait For No Man’ featuring lead single of the same name early next year. Marcus Nand is widely known for his work as a guitarist, which has seen him feature in a host of bands from heavy metal band Freak of Nature to Spanish gypsy rock outfit Ziroq featuring Carmine Rojas who recorded extensively with David Bowie and Joe Bonamassa and saw the group reach number #11 in the Billboard Tropical/Salsa chart.
The new album is a unique blend of rock, pop and flamenco styles with nods to Elbow and The Dave Matthews band. Marcus’ gravelly tones are frequently compared to the likes of Seal and Peter Gabriel with a sensibility reminiscent of Patrick Monohan. The songs on the album are written in a radio friendly format with Marcus throwing in world music elements to elevate the release to a unique platform.
‘Time and Tide Wait For No Man’ is the perfect introduction to the sound of Marcus Nand. A delineation of his musical interests and an amalgamation of his previous work, the album is an exploration on the subjectivity of popular culture and the need for people to be motivated to create artistry through intellectual stimulation and self expression. The single of the same name builds on this idea but takes a more personal twist becoming an objective observation about an aspect of life. ‘Time and Tide Wait For No Man’ essentially focuses on the self belief and self sufficiency required to get things completed in all aspects of life. Musically, the album as a whole is the first instance that Marcus has combined all aspects of his musical influences from rock and pop to flamenco and Arabic styles.
Marcus Nand’s prolific nature as a songwriter has seen him work with household names such as Rod Stewart, Rami Jaffee and Mike Inez. Marcus appeared on Rod Stewart’s latest album ‘Another Country’ and Stewart continues to be a key supporter of his work, frequently attending shows with the likes of Jimi Page and the recently deceased Chris Squire in tow. Marcus is essentially a musician’s musician and as a session musician he interacts with the world’s greatest instrumentalists on a daily basis.
With strong support behind him and a stunning album release in front of him, Marcus Nand is destined to cement himself amongst the great and good in popular music.
‘Time and Tide Wait For No Man’ is out January 22nd

“Clever, surging art-pop.” – CMJ.com
‘Mad Magic’ is the forthcoming single from New York based indie rock band CHAPPO and is due for release on Caroline International on 22nd January 2016. It’s the second single to be taken from their forthcoming second album ‘Future Former Self’, which is due out on 22nd January 2016.
The song’s positively upbeat and idiosyncratic vibe is intriguing considering its subject matter.
Rene Cogito has left his wife back home traveling to a black hole hoping to save mankind. 'Mad Magic' is a trip into the transparency of time as darkness surrounds Rene's field of vision. Vivid images, memories, and sensations overwhelm him as the constancy of the sun fades in his peripheral. When did that moment happen? Was it today, yesterday, or has it happened yet? Will he preserve his mental acuity or will madness creep into his psych?'
Rene’s journey is part of a surreal narrative that runs throughout the album, a cosmic body of work exploring the abstract nature of time and the experience it has on the perception of reality.
CHAPPO’s first single from this album ‘Hang On’ was well received and found early radio support from the likes of John Kennedy and Simon Raymonde.
The band formed in the East Village of New York in 2009. Splitting the difference between the guitar-driven psychedelia of ‘60s west coast rock and the spiritual witch doctor moonshine of Dr. John, they tour constantly and have supported the likes of Of Montreal, Big Data, Imagine Dragons and The Flaming Lips. They will be touring the UK in early 2016, dates to be announced in due course.
CHAPPO’s music has featured in several syncs including ads for Apple iPod Touch, Macy’s and Sears and the TV series’ ‘90120’ HBO’s ‘Hung’ and NBC’s ‘Up All Night’.
