RICH STEPHENSON TO RELEASE NEW SINGLE ‘ALIBI’ ON 25/11
Autumnal folk-pop track is lifted from new ‘I AM RICH’ EP
London-based singer-songwriter Rich Stephenson will release Alibi, the second single from his new I AM RICH (blue) EP, on Friday 25th November. The new song combines earthy acoustics with pop hooks and is driven by sweeping violins and Rich’s signature bendy-legged, rhythmic strumming.
After a busy summer that saw typically frenetic & audience-charming performances at Glastonbury, Boardmasters, Humber Street Sesh and Beverley Folk Festivals, recent single Better Things To Do cemented Rich’s place as one of the best emerging singer-songwriters in the UK. Confirmed fans Gaby Roslin and Alan Raw invited him in for live sessions and interviews with BBC Radio London and BBC Introducing, whilst Amazing Radio’s Baylen Leonard playlisted the track for three consecutive weeks on his show. Audiences all over the UK were also introduced to Rich with airplay for Better Things To Do on 40 BBC regional stations and 20 other regional radio shows.
Alibi effortlessly blurs the line between folk and pop, and offers another example of an instinctive songwriting talent with an ear for making the personal sound universal. As Rich explains, “Alibi is about the bittersweet nature of relationships and friendships - you fall out, you make up, you share high points, you live through low points, but a tight bond remains throughout.”
Rich Stephenson will be playing shows in support of Alibi and his new EP in Nov/Dec. For more info head to http://www.richstephenson.com

UK songwriter, rapper, and producer Alonestar to release new video and single 'Lovelorn', which cuts deep into unrequited love, and fast living to forget!
Jethro Sheeran aka Alonestar (Ed Sheeran’s cousin), has been working alongside the live band members of Massive Attack to produce this hedonist, sexy, dark track which also sees Girls Aloud’s Sarah Harding feature in the breath-taking video.
'Lovelorn' tells the story of a heartbroken woman who falls in love, but the lust of her life doesn’t love her back – something we can all relate to! Also featuring on the chorus is top 10 singer Rosie Ribbons, her haunting vocals sound like a falling beautiful angel. This sits perfectly on an addictive resonating drum beat recorded by Damon Reece (Massive Attack), and flawless production of the song by Jethro Sheeran and Angelo Brushini (Massive Attack). And to even more add intrigue- the song itself is about past life experiences for both Jethro Sheeran and Rosie Ribbons, which added to an overly emotional ride when writing and recording the song together!
“Lovelorn is the strongest and most powerful song I have written & produced to date, it reflects my new sound and style. It's something fresh, and different to anything else out there at the moment. I dug deep to exercise the darkness in this track, and fell into the depths of my soul when coming up with the concept.”
Alonestar's debut album ‘Cornerstone’ went straight to No3 in the iTunes charts following its release in early 2016, and this new offering is expected to create a similar reaction when released!
Alonestar has previously won two EIA Awards, two Exposure Music Awards, and wrote all of the raps for Ed Sheeran’s SBTV & Live Room Performances, plus his debut single 'Skyla Rain' features Ed Sheeran in the video. He was also the executive producer for Bars and Melody’s platinum selling album ‘143’ which went straight to No4 in the official UK charts.
“A great writer and powerful lyricist”
“Sounds great- I want to hear more”
Nellee Hooper (producer for U2 and Madonna)
“Alonestar is refreshing- he could fill a big gap in the music industry globally!”
Roy Merchant (multi platinum selling producer)

DRIFTWOOD RELEASE NEW SINGLE ‘THIS CITY’
Anthemic acoustic-pop single from new trio is in download & streaming stores now
Rising UK pop trio Driftwood have released their debut single This City. The energetic and anthemic new track is an impressive cocktail of soulful vocals, earworm melodies and acoustic pop sounds.
After meeting at college three years ago, Preston teenagers Hugh Aitchison and Marcus Maddock quickly bonded over a shared passion for both classic indie and modern pop songwriting and began working on music together. The duo soon found themselves performing at open mics around Manchester and the North West, posting covers and original songs on YouTube and picking up fans online. The line-up of the band was completed when they connected with Nathan Walker following a move to London, and Driftwood have since been busy performing at venues around the UK (including shows at notable live circuit staples Night & Day Café, Sound Control Manchester, The Troubadour and O2 Islington Academy). With their debut Maybe It’s Naïve EP picking up thousands of streams on Spotify and new single This City winning new fans each day, the future looks bright for the talented trio.
Driftwood will be playing shows this winter and early next year - for more dates and info head to facebook.com/officialdriftwood
