The Fabulous Red Diesel Set To Please Fans With New EP ”The Queensbury House Sessions.”

Jazz, Singer-Songwriter, Soul

Beyond the theatrics of make-up that’s just a little extra; peacock-feather ‘n’ tie dye shirts and a rainbow emitting disco ball lies a voice with the call of the sirens and a hot handle on the blues”

Debbie Bourke, Jazz Journalist

A Husband and Wife on drums, a transgender trumpeter and double-bassist; a synth player and a guitarist named Rabbi Jaffa Delicious. Different? Yes. Unconventional? Yes. Good Music? Absolutely!

Ms Kitty (Kat Lee-Ryan),  Duke Boom (Will Lee-Ryan) on drums; Miss Bea-Have (Beatrice Gullick) and Rabbi Jaffa Delicious (Simon Dobell) have built a loyal fanbase through the fusion classic 60s soul with jazz arrangements and a rhythm section which can skip from hip-hop beats to Latin to funk.

The band shouldn’t be underestimated either as they have worked with the likes of The James Taylor Quartet, Skunk Anansie and Jeff Buckley. Their new EP – a sixteen track project – was recorded in just one take at a disused office block, un-ironically called the Queensbury House.

The record’s lead single ‘Butterfly Mind’ is a beautiful mix of smokey jazz and swooning soul, and a real testament to true love.

It’s about the way my brain works and the way music flits from one person to another, changing their perception (hopefully for the better) by tiny inspirational touches. And then it’s also a love song – I am married to the drummer and I’m saying no matter how many twists and turns and expansions my mind has, I am always grounded in him – you know I’ve got a butterfly mind but I settle on you ‘’

Kat Lee-Ryan

Any Listener can be pleasantly surprised by the music video accompanying this track. Based in a live studio, visuals set the scene with beautiful strobe lights and colours, certain to put anyone in a tranquil mood. As well as soothing vocals, the butterflies flying across the screen are a nice touch bringing it all together.

The ‘Butterfly Mind’ Video can be watched here:

No Limit To InHibit: Alt Rock Artist Releases New Single, The Quest.

Alternative, Experimental, Rock, Singer-Songwriter

When you first lay eyes on this very abstract and insightful music video by the ever-challenging artist Inhibit, you are faced with a black screen that fades into a face full of scars. A frightening thought, right?

Describing himself primarily as a poet, Inhibit has studied the piano since he was five years old. Based in Brussels, the 21-year-old boasts an unusual background as a former racing driver and qualified lawyer – highly retrospective of his peculiar and unpredictable style of music.

Plastered with scars on his face and his back, ‘The Quest’ depicts Inhibit as a complete outsider who walks around a city wearing a mask though, upon revelation of his true face, everyone he approaches turns and runs in disgust.

Hurtling towards 400,000 YouTube views in less than one month, ‘The Quest’ sees InHibit examining the hypocritical reactions of those around him to his real persona, when how he is treated when not hidden behind a mask.

Watch the Eye-Popping Video to The Quest here: 

Composed by the artist himself and featuring his keyboard and vocal skills, the video too was his own creation, featuring his own scarification designs and storyboard. His first book is to be released shortly, as well as a collection of his poetry.

MeMe Detroit Return as “Mean Rock n Rollers” in New Single

Rock, Rock n Roll, Singer-Songwriter

MeMe Detroit’s new single brings about the classic sounds and angry vibes that you would typically get in an archetypal ‘Rock n Roll’ song.

Describing it as a ”Calling” and a ”Deep Lifestyle” within the lyrics, ‘Mean Rock n Roller’ was written as an anthem to anyone who feels pressurised to adapt and conform to societal ideals.

Mean Rock N Roller is a bit of a tongue-in-cheek song that we had written as a bit of fun but at the same time says ‘fuck you’ to the limiting beliefs that are pressed on us by society as we grow up. You can basically be, do or have anything you want in life when you put your mind to it, so never settle. It’s pointless”.

MeME DETROIT

Mean Rock n Roller can be streamed below:

With 200 gigs under her belt, MeMe Detroit has become known for her highly energetic, immense and furious live shows. However, even away from the live scene MeMe, alongside drummer Kallum McEwen, are still able to give quality music and entertainment for their fans.

They are currently rallying their fans to help put together a music video, whilst keeping them entertained with a constant supply of new music via exclusive streams on social media.

MeMe Detroit continue to gain traction within the UK music scene as they have managed to land regular airtime on Kerrang! Radio, Janice Long’s show on BBC Radio Wales and have been picked for Fresh on the Net’s ‘Fresh Faves.’

Adam Lanceley Is An Inspiration Proving That We You Really Can Do Anything You Put Your Mind To

Acoustic, Country, Rock, Singer-Songwriter

 

Some could look at it as a miracle, some may look it at as destiny, but what is certain is that there is no obstacle stopping Adam Lanceley from doing what he wants to do.

At the age of 10, Adam was involved in a car crash, which ended up in Adam suffering from severe brain and spine injury’s. At the first stages of his recovery, doctors told his parents that it was unlikely that he would survive. After time had past, they were then convinced that he would never be able to walk again.

 

However, now Adam is recording and releasing self-written songs, as well as featuring in a music video! And I’m not even going to start on the marathon he ran!(Even though its awesome).

The song ‘A Film We All Saw’, is a light tune, that will satisfy and sooth your soul. With the music video being an inspirational moment for anyone and everyone.

Julia Mascetti – A Modern Day Dream Weaver

Acoustic, Alternative, Experimental, Folk, Live, Music, Singer-Songwriter

Dream weaving is no easy feat, but Julia Mascetti and her harp do just that with an ease and sense of style that only a true sonic whizz can pull off.

Listen to a live version of her track “In Bloom” here

Growing up in the UK but living in Tokyo, Julia is a melting pot of influences and her new EP, “In Distance, Everything Is Poetry” showcases this perfectly.

One of the more standout tracks from the EP is In Bloom. The song is built around a haunting picked arpeggio that provides the perfect foundation for Julia’s storytelling and leaves space for the smaller, more delicate details of the production to shine through. Weaving cleverly in and out of this are masterfully placed snippets of traditional Japanese sounds and it is this that gives the music its distinct, eclectic character.

The end result though is something that is truly unique, emotive and haunting and showcases the storytelling of someone who truly loves and respects their craft.

Adam Lanceley helps out Brain and Spine Foundation with new EP

Acoustic, Rock, Singer-Songwriter

Records always seem to have a much greater impact when they’re devoted to a good cause, just think about the Military Wives for example. But now, singer-songwriter, Adam Lanceley has returned with another one, a new EP that is donating all its proceeds to the Brain And Spine Foundation.

This charity, in particular, is close to Adam’s heart as it is one he has raised money for in the past, running several 10k races and even the London marathon in their name. However, Adam had to come a long way before he reached this point.

As a child, a terrible car crash left Adam with seemingly irreparable damage to his head, and the doctors told his parents that he would never walk or talk again. As you can see, Adam proved them wrong and is now a hugely inspirational musician too.

Music became a form of therapy for Adam and he began to write music during his adolescent years, after picking up the guitar and learning some basic skills. Since then, Adam has produced a stunning back catalogue of 5 full length albums, Back To The Sunshine, the new EP being his sixth record.

The EP continues with Adam’s summery style, employing intricate guitar leads alongside well thought out lyrics where there is much more beneath the surface than originally meets the eye.

‘Call Me The Moon’ by Mark L. Oakes

Folk, Singer-Songwriter

Belgian singer-songwriter, engineer and producer Mark L. Oakes is releasing the ideal soundtrack for what he calls a ‘karmic road trip’ with his debut album Call Me The Moon.

Mark’s home studio, tucked away in the Ardennes, provided the perfect location to record the album, whilst it was mastered in Los Angeles by Grammy award winner, Gavin Lurssen.

Oakes’ influences are clear once you listen to his music and he is keen to show his admiration for the likes of Neil Young, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Tucker Zimmerman and Ryan Adams.

While singles ‘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. Although Mark’s sound can best be placed in the folk genre, he employs elements of rock too such as the deep and resonant, yet subtle electric guitar on ‘Aloof Again’.

Travelling between Europe and the United States with a bag full of projects, Mark sees ‘Call Me The Moon’ as the silver thread out of the vague existential maze. The album is a must listen for anyone wanting to rediscover their love for quality folk music – a real easy listener!
