Irish folk-rock band The Dandy Horses

‘Tales from Hard Luck Town’ is an 11 track album with most featuring a story or character relating to ‘Hard Luck Town.’ Despite there being a dark undercurrent, many of the tracks are also upbeat and lighter in tone. The album includes a murder ballad and other themes include homelessness, seeking fulfilment, being sent to prison (‘Hydebank Hotel’), relationships, and drunken antics. The songs have a relatable feel, often being shaped by the band’s life experiences and observations.

As well as featuring on many local radio stations, such as Radio Ulster multiple times, and 6 Music they have also performed live on the only English speaking Radio Station in Ethiopia – Afro FM. They were also flown out to Ethiopia twice at the request of the Irish Embassy to perform at their St Patricks day celebrations. They have also just been booked to do their second tour of Germany.

Having performed in such places as the aforementioned is a perfect portrayal of how tangible and enjoyable their music is. Whether you’re a folk fan through and through or you never thought you’d be partial to it, The Dandy Horses’ New album is definitely going to be your latest infatuation.

Anthony Tullo and his new country-rock single ‘Borderline’

New single out June 15th

PRimage

Based in Ontario, Canada, Anthony Tullo is a country-rock singer-songwriter who is looking to take on the UK music industry with new single ‘Borderline’. It’s a very promising year for an artist whose old school style has been compared to the classic likes of Bruce Springsteen, John Melencamp, Bob Segar, Bryan Adams and others, but with an decidedly contemporary edge. Riding the current worldwide wave of roots, country and folk music, Anthony Tullo is an artist who is here to stay.

Hugely creative and multi-talented, Anthony is returning to the music industry after some years away from the business,  first deciding to pursue his song writing again when a self-written soundtrack to his own independent film captured attention. The movie itself went on to win awards in Canada and is now available globally online, while the result of his renewed song writing confidence in the stellar new rock single ‘Borderline’.

Revered by critics, radio and writers in his native Canada, and also invited to play some of the country’s most prestigious venues, Anthony Tullo’s reputation is already cemented and still growing on the other side of the Atlantic.

His first chance to break into the industry saw Anthony catch the eye of a notoriously difficult to please A&R at Warners over a decade ago, but his progress was halted by the tragic events of Sepember 11th, 2001 in New York. Following that day, the promising start to his career was halted by a label who (understandably) had other priorities, leading to Anthony Tullo leaving the industry for a time.

But now he’s back, a self-made musician with a point to prove. And if anyone disagrees with him, they should probably know one more thing – he funds his music career by competing and training others in the arts of Brazilian Ju-Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts.

This is one independent artist who needs to be taken seriously – in every sense.

Sweet Review of These Raven Skies

TRS Cover Art HQ

 

The talented, hard-rock Canadian band These Raven Skies have smashed their way into music with their fearless album named after the band. ‘No Need To Worry’ is a classic rave tune, enjoyable and strong, perfect for heavy rock fans worldwide. The song demonstrates the bands’ confident talent to play phenomenal guitar solos and produce excellent acoustic underlay’s, as well as singing about the topic of chaos, things that make them so popular. Famous Jeff Martin from The Tea Party inspired and featured in ‘No Need To Worry’, showing that These Raven Skies have fantastic links and support from big names, increasing their knowledgeable profiles in the music industry very successfully. While the powerful voice of Chris Perkins shines through in the hardcore track, some of the other album’s songs are more toned down, such as ‘Open Road’ and ‘Emily and Alick’, which shows that the band can achieve every angle in the music business to be successful.

The passionate hard-rock band These Raven Skies have produced an atmospheric and powerful album full of personal and emotional passion and hardcore music. Already their name places a significant image in our minds, making them easily memorable, and their professional musical links (such as Jeff Martin and Scott Weiland) make them stand suitably out from the hard-rock genre crowd. The care placed into the album’s songs- particularly ‘No Need To Worry’ demonstrates their determined ‘hands on’ approach to producing their music, showing their grit to do well that will shine brightly toward their future. Their energy and defined stage presence has been pummelled into many successful live performances, such as for festivals in their hometown. A clever and heavy album, These Raven Skies will be loved by all hard-rock fans.

The stars align with Pale Green Things’ new single!

The talented artist has already seen success with past tracks and now looks set to do it all over again with the help of a Pink Flamingo.

 Pink flamingo is all about events that take place outside a bar in Las vegas and has a real pace and spirit about it. A fast moving and upbeat tune that has a exciting country edge.
