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.

Georg Roman unleashes his powerful voice on ‘Forever’

Male voices don’t come much more powerful than Russian singer, Georg Roman. Combining a blend of classical, operatic and rock styles on his new single ‘Forever’, the talented musician is one to look out for in the future.

Whilst this style may be difficult to imagine, Georg has compared himself to Josh Groban, and as soon as you listen to ‘Forever’, you will see why. Dramatic string sections set the scene before Georg truly unleahes his explosive baritone on the song. His voice resonates triumphantly over the classical instrumentation, providing his audience with quite the listening experience.

It might seem like Georg has been doing this all his life, but he originally followed the path of becoming an athlete, wanting to be a professional fighter or weightlifter. Evidently, Georg chose the right path- exhibiting his undeniable vocal talents to the world.

‘Prisoner to the Past’ by Homesick Mick

The intriguing singer-songwriter, Homesick Mick, has released his latest single ‘Prisoner to the Past’, from his debut EP Black Hole Friday.

With some quality songwriting and meaningful lyricism, Homesick Mick has honed his folk-pop-rock style which is most evident in his festive release, ‘Prisoner to the Past’. The video for the track also features The Beatles greats, Paul and John, not the real ones, obviously, but they’re pretty good lookalikes! With the pertinent lyrics of the track, the evocative songwriting talents of John Lennon himself are not far away from Mick’s latest effort.

Homesick Mick has also been involved in a social media campaign against the Sir Philip Green, whose corrupt behaviour in extorting the former employees of BHS has been deplored by many, including members of parliament. Mick’s campaign went full throttle when he took to the streets of London outside Green’s flagship Topshop store where he protested on behalf of the BHS employees, accompanied by his guitar.

The well travelled singer has found himself performing across the UK at festivals such as Cambridge Folk Festival and Wychwood Festival and his upcoming album, The Mysterious Abduction and Return of Homesick Mick, is set for release in January 2017.

New release- The Colossal Heads

Revelling in the heavier side of indie rock, The Colossal Heads are a group on the rise who have been compared to artists such as Queens of the Stone Age, Incubus, Modest Mouse and Nirvana. These are not bands whose names should be taken lightly in terms of comparison – thankfully The Colossal Heads do them justice.

The new EP from Colossal Heads showcases a heavier side to Indie Rock. Following in the footsteps of the 90’s to early 2000’s rock revolution these guys are here to make their mark.

These boys work hard, and its definitely paying off, touring from New Orleans to California sleeping on floors all the way. The grass roots approach continues with their promotions, earning well-deserved recognition from local radio and Facebook. These guys just keep on getting bigger, ‘Mammoths’ their latest EP is just another step in their evolution, breaking the boundaries of Rock as we know it.

Bentley Jones stuns with new EP, ‘The Prequel’

_MG_5300_1000xSong smith Bentley Jones returns with a glowing new release combining rock, pop and electronica to create a unique sound and style. This is the most streamline release you will hear this year and something you don’t want to miss out on.

Most artists would be content in achieving less than half of what Bentley Jones has managed to over his illustrious career. His first single debuted at #5 in the Japanese Charts without any promotion and he was the first British artist to release a Japanese album on a major label. He also recorded and performed with May J and achieved several chart topping dance hits for the likes of Madonna, will.i.am, Sia and Ariana Grande to name just a few!

Having been compared to David Guetta, will.i.am and Avicii, Bentley Jones is keen to cement his place as a leading performer and so far he’s been successful in that aim.  Jones has collaborated with Curtis Young who happens to be the son of Dr Dre, on a number of releases. His version of “West End Girls” was adored by Neil Tenant and even Lady Gaga follows him on Twitter!

Listen to ‘Follow You Down’ here: https://youtu.be/tQegrTURzYs

Although Bentley is loved by the industry and fans alike, he feels it is time for change, and looks to  explore the social conformities and pigeon holed genres that are associated with male artists in his music. Having come from a labour orientated family, Bentley knows the meaning of hard work and has strived his whole life to achieve success which he feels often contrasts with the manufactured pop stars of today’s world.

Bentley Jones is a very diverse character. Not only a musician and writer, Bentley was part of a string of sold out shows with the Birmingham Opera were he utilised his extensive dance talents to great acclaim. He is also a trained fitness instructor, gymnast and swimmer whilst also being a fantastic dancer and extraordinary singer.

His infectious pop laden hooks and variance in genres and styles makes Bentley Jones an instant hit. His new tracks ooze class and style whilst getting your head bobbing and feet tapping. It is a testament to his musical genius that he manages to adhere to the established genres that made him famous whilst also being able to incorporate new influences to create truly original sounds.

Melodically, sonically and lyrically Bentley Jones has created a flawless release which will appeal to people of all walks of life and tastes in music. The EP will be released on August 31st.
