Adam Lanceley: ‘A Villa On The Cliffs’

Taken from Adam Lanceley’s recently released EP, Back To The Sunshine, ‘A Villa On The Cliffs’ exhibits some of the London based singer-songwriter’s best work to date.

Adam’s punchy vocals are a staple as always, but these make way for a beautifully harmonic chorus break driven by organs and string sections.

During his youth, Adam was unfortunately involved in a horrific car crash that left him with severe head and spine injuries. After being told that it was unlikely he would make a full recovery, Adam put everything he had into proving them wrong.

It is this determination and lifelong attitude that Adam has used to forge himself a career in creating music. He even runs 10ks and marathons in aid of his favoured charity, The Brain and Spine Foundation, for which any proceeds from the new EP will be donated to.

Mark L. Oakes’ New Album is a ‘Karmic Road Trip’

Mark L. Oakes is a supremely talented singer-songwriter hailing from Belgium, yet he adopts a classic Americana-folk sound which he is particularly adept at creating.

Mark has been involved in a number of musical projects, on his own and with others, and now he is back with his latest album, Call Me The Moon, which he describes as the ‘ideal soundtrack for a karmic road trip’.

These words become increasingly clear upon listening to Mark’s work which has a definite hint of Neil Young to it, although he also cites other inspirations such as Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Tucker Zimmerman and Ryan Adams. Despite these similarities and comparisons, Mark is certainly not a copy artist; his music has a depth of soul and heartfelt honesty to it that is hard to find in any music these days.

Also, within Oakes’ signature sound, there is a range of emotions depicted across the album. While singles such as ‘Shredded Jeans’ and ‘Friend From Above (Sleepless Spouse)’ are tinged with soft melancholy, tunes like ‘Aloof Again’ and ‘None Of These Roads’ will lead you straight to a risky, bitter ground.

Mainly tracked at Mark’s home studio in the heart of the Ardennes, the record has been finalised with the help of Londoner cellist, Ben Trigg, and mastered by Grammy award winner Gavin Lurssen in Los Angeles.

Master of Future Roots, Natty, is back with new album

Following his Top 20 debut album, ‘Man Like I’, Natty is back with his highly anticipated second album ‘Release The Fear’, a future-roots, concept album that takes us on a journey through love, redemption, self-identity and unity.

Described by the Telegraph as a “soul-reggae crossover sensation” Natty is an artist who brings the revolutionary spirit of the 60s and 70s into current times. The Sunday Times praised his lyrics as “sharply focused” and his songs as “free from production trickery”. Seven years in the making, Release The Fear reflects Natty’s spiritual and sonic progression, bringing forward cosmic and mindful energies through his unmistakable delivery.

The first single of the album, ‘I’m Alive’, is a catchy proclamation of faith and a declaration of thanks for new times and new energies. It is accompanied by an evocative and visually stimulating animated video.

Other inspiring songs include ‘Street lights’, a fast paced, high energy beat that dares us to reconnect with each other and the space around us, as well as ‘Stand up in Love’ which calls for a truly unifying love that transcends conventional boundaries.

Sonically, ‘Release The Fear’ is genre straddling whilst retaining an authentic, roots/soul/ Afrocentric identity,  amalgamating into what Natty describes as “future roots”. Recorded live, the album has a unique sound with tracks ranging from the delicate and hypnotic ‘Rainclouds’ to the militant and arousing ‘Change’ featuring Busy Signal and Albarosie.

Since parting with his major label, Natty has been hard at work building his own unique brand, independently releasing an award-winning EP, set up his record label Vibes & Pressure and a monthly club night by the same name.

Still very active on the live music circuit, the North Londoner has hit the stages of SWSW, Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Reading & Leeds and the BBC Electric Proms. Natty has also toured the USA supporting Ziggy Marley and travelled to Zimbabwe, Brazil, Japan and Europe performing for local crowds.

Previously receiving the support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, ITV, MTV, Later with Jools Holland amongst others, Natty is excited to embark on his new project and share his message of love with the rest of the world.

The album ‘Release The Fear’ is out on 18th March 2016.

Dave Fidler New EP – ‘Easy Gone, Easy Come’ Put 1st June

We challenge you to watch his recent session for cult YouTube Channel ‘Ont’ Sofa’ without being supremely impressed:

With a live BBC Manchester session and a feature in national Acoustic Magazine already under his belt, Dave Fidler’s previous single ‘Taking Over’ has really started to make waves for the singer-songwriter. Easy Gone, Easy Come, is the title track from  the new EP which is set to retain Dave’s upward trajectory come June 1st.

Based in the North West, Dave Fidler is a supremely talented acoustic guitarist, whose folk style and intricate finger picking underneath a distinct vocal has the ability to warm and break your heart in equal measure. His songs spin tales we can all relate to, around themes of love, loss and birth – all themes shaped by Fidler’s own personal life over the last year or so.

Influenced by greats like Bob Dylan and Paul Simon, this is an artist with incredible potential with songs like EP track ‘Easy Gone, Easy Come’, which you can find here:

Produced by Sam Jones (Alex Turner, Corinne Bailey Rae) and John Bramwell of I Am Kloot, the EP is just the latest step in what is shaping up to be a very promising music career.

Music is clearly a true passion for the singer-songwriter, who also runs a music school and charity alongside touring. It’s all very impressive work, and with a barge tour of the UK in the works as well as a potential prisons tour at the end of the year, it’s clear to see that Dave is approaching things in a different way.

The past twelve months for Dave have been a whirlwind of recording sessions and great shows including Glastonbury Festival, Manchester’s Whisky Sessions festival and a forty date tour of the UK as main tour support to John Bramwell who describes Fidler as “absolutely brilliant”. He has also been featured several times by key tastemaker Tom Robinson of BBC Radio 6 Music.

Sandy Kilpatrick single ‘Your Love is a Weapon’ to be taken from album ‘The Shaman’s Call’

Scottish singer-songwriter set to unveil new album on June 15th

An acoustic-folk singer-songwriter, Sandy Kilpatrick is now Portugal based having been born and raised in Scotland. His new album, ‘The Shaman’s Call’, is the latest stunning release in a career that has grown organically over time, with his sound echoing great songwriters as wide ranging as David Bowie and Damien Rice, while retaining his own unique take on the genre.

‘The Shaman’s Call’ marks further progression for Sandy Kilpatrick as an artist, guided out of the gate by new single ‘Your Love Is a Weapon’, a song which focuses on the intimacy and solitude of the writer at work: https://soundcloud.com/sandykilpatrick/your-love-is-a-weapon

 Like this track, the album as a whole is designed to feel raw, and not hidden behind the smoke and mirrors of big production. The lyrics are intimate and thoughtful, hitting many highs, lows and moments of heartfelt poignancy – many of which listeners will immediately relate to.

Sandy Kilpatrick’s new music marks a new step forward as a solo artist and musician – not bad for someone who has already shared the stage with many excellent bands including Muse, Elbow and more.

Fittingly, this album represents taking his journey full circle, with a festival show coming up in July where he will be sharing the bill with The Waterboys – a band Sandy loved in his childhood. One of the first songs he learned on the guitar was theirs, ‘Fisherman’s Blues’, and it seems fitting that he should share the stage with them as he celebrates his latest release.
