New seasonal single from Sussex-based Singer-Songwriter Jon McDevitt

Sussex-based singer-songwriter, Jon McDevitt, has just released his sensational seasonal single ‘Father Christmas’. Check out the emotive video here:

This Christmas sing-along cleverly blends influences from The Smiths and Dexys Midnight Runners amongst others, to form an easy listen seasonal single.

Thoughtful lyrics by co-writer Dominic Hudson paint Father Christmas as a figure missing from Christmas, whilst allowing the listener to interpret it as to how or why. These combine with an infectious melody to make a Christmas single that stands out from the crowd.

Adam Lanceley returns with ‘Those Rose Tinted Days’

untitled1

Having suffered a serious head injury from a car crash at the age of ten, singer-songwriter Adam Lanceley has defied all the odds learning to walk and talk again, and is now releasing his fifth album, Postcards from Then…, from which ‘ Those Rose Tinted Days’ is taken.

The car crash led to Adam struggling with depression in his adolescent years, but he quickly realised that the best emotional outlet for his troubles was to write music.

He had tried his hand at acting, winning a place at the prestigious East 15 Acting School, but Adam realised that pretending to be someone else was not helping him express his feelings. The side effects of Adam’s head injuries from the car crash had a detrimental impact on his mental health and music proved to be a cathartic release.

‘Those Rose Tinted Days’ sticks to Adam’s distinct sound, driven by his unique vocal stylings and backed up with wonderfully bright guitar riffs.

Kinky Dove rock out with new self-titled EP

3 track release set to be unleashed on June 15th

scott_2

Born in in Australia but now living in London, Kindy Dove is the musical moniker of frontman Scott Wade and his evolving collective of musicians. Progenitors of gritty, driving rock, the group are readying themselves for a fresh assault on the music industry with a brand new three track EP.

Produced by Chris Kimsey, previously of Olympic Studios, the EP marks Kinky Dove out as one of the earthiest rock bands on the scene. Fans of Scott Wade and Kinky Dove before they began working together, the producer understood the style and heights at which the music was aiming, and helped mould that vision into the musical reality that Kinky Dove has become.

The CD was mixed by Wade. Studio legend Phill Brown loved the sound of the CD, commenting that the mixes were “open and alive.”

Their particular brand of rock and roll, defined in many ways by the bluesy, post-rock growl of Wade on vocals, is currently lost nationally and globally, and Kinky Dove are now looking to redress that balance.

For a taste of their punchy style, check out the video to EP track ‘Some Kind of Fool’, featuring an epic slap-happy montage of Hollywood moments.

The EP also features a remix/cover version of classic 1978 track ‘Another Girl Another Planet’ by The Only Ones – in this case titled simply ‘Another Girl’.

There is also a trance remix of ‘It’s Called Heartache’ on the EP. You can find the video for this at

The EP is online at

The CD was mixed by Wade. Studio legend Phill Brown loved the sound of the CD, commenting that the mixes were “open and alive.”

The resulting EP is a continuation of form from previous album ‘Kinky Dove vol. 1’, and the latest step in Kinky Dove’s  climb.
