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.
