Rock band release the second half to their Two Part Album!

SouLost_01

 

One of the tracks from the album which you can sample below demonstrates a theme of misery and isolation mixed with optimism and realisation. Distinct contrasts of ideas and sounds make for a very entertaining performance of teenage darkness and angst.

For a taste, check out this sneak peak – EP track ‘Without Me’:

Brand new UK soul star set for debut single release ‘Backsliding’

Scarlet Baxter looks to break through with August 18th single release

SCARLET BACKSLIDING  new

A London based artist with a fiercely independent streak, Scarlet Baxter is a female singer-songwriter who has been described as ‘Lauren Hill meets Jimi Hendrix’. A killer combination of stellar vocals and soulful guitar backing thanks to co-writer Dominic Ireland, Scarlet Baxter is an artist with a genuine chance of breaking through having turned the heads of some the industry’s top names.

https://soundcloud.com/scarletbaxter/scarlet-baxter-backsliding

With a new EP ‘Stuck’ due for release soon, lead single ‘Backsliding’ is a classy introduction to Scarlet’s powerful sound. Having worked on the EP with producers including John McLaughlin (known as ‘The Hit Man’ thanks to previous successes), Jud Mahoney (Michael Jackson, Dolly Parton, Chris Brown, Usher, Mariah Carey) and Natalie DeLucia (Britney Spears), this is music not only well written but also superbly captured by a team of industry heavyweights.

Scarlet Baxter is no stranger to the spotlight since winning performance contests as young as 14 years of age. Later, she went through years of musical theatre training and, although the musical theatre is not reflected in her earthy style, she did learn the art of performance and gain confidence in her own ability.

More recently, her star has continued to rise thanks to numerous support slots with Lester Clayton as well as playing Barfly, Camden with Stax Revue. It’s little wonder her music has featured on London’s BBC Introducing with Gavin Crowley, with The Stage and Television Today also marking the talented songwriter as ‘One to Watch’.

Pale Green things – Pink Flamingo

The stars align with Pale Green Things’ new single!

 

Pink Flamingo Final.indd

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.

 

Jack Traynor has revealed that he plans to provide audiences with a unique performance experience. The video for his latest single, Pink Flamingo being a great example of this:

Watch it on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=goBZW3c0EEI

Hear it on Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/palegreenthings/pinkflamingo

Jack has supported acts such as ‘The Riffles’, ‘Dave Mcpherson’, and ‘The Coral’ (at Noel Gallaghers aftershow party) and ‘Dirty Sanchez’. He has also accompanied ‘The Virginmarys’, an ever growing popular US group.

Jack’s hobbies and personal interests are heavy influencers in shaping his latest EP. Jack’s interest in geography, travel and even population densities; play a key part in the songs sound and narrative. The lyrics are also inspired by the creation of fictional characters as well as autobiographical situations.

His latest single ‘Pink Flamingo’ is one of his most beautiful songs to date. The infectious chorus is only a part of what makes this whimsical tale of life and astronomical connections so poignant. It is based around the many events that take place under the constellations; with its main focus being about sitting outside the Flamingo Casino in Vegas. The sound is an indie pop mix drawing from influences such as The Killers, Belle and Sebastian, and Idlewild.

Jack has recently been recording music in Glasgow; with a music producer by the name of John McLaughlin over the last few months. John has seen great success in the past and looks to be striking another hit if Pink flamingo is anything to go by. Also, Teenage Fan club star, Francis MacDonald was involved in their recording session too.

Lateefah release cool new Reggea track!

Neo Soul Sensation Lateefah Reveals ‘This is Who I Am’

Lateefah - Publicit photo

A fresh beat from the Soul Singer set to make a second music hit!

 

James Nettey Photography

“This is who I am” brings a bass fueled, revival to the soul scene. Produced by talented young producer KING for Lateko Records, it will be released July 14th.  Lateefah’s debut single “Here I am” held the number one spot for three weeks on the Reverbnation Christian chart for St. Lucia and also for a period of one week was number one on all genres chart. The single also reached #27 on the National Airplay Top 50 Gospel Chart (US) in December 2013 sharing the spotlight with notable artists such as Mary Mary, William McDowell, Donnie McClurkin and others.  Her second single release “Love Me Through” was well received by the media and already performing live sessions with some of the top radio stations such as Premier Radio and top venues such as The Vortex, she is one to follow.

Listen to ‘This is Who I Am’ here: https://soundcloud.com/lateefahsings/this-is-who-i-am

London Born musician, Lateefah is a neo soul artist who after returning to the UK from her parent’s native country of St Lucia, is now working on further developing her gift for making music. Her new single releasing this year, will hope to demonstrate the talent and efforts of this young neo soul artist.

The cool Caribbean Artist started out singing in church at a young age, and gathers a lot of the inspiration for her work, from her own personal diaries from her childhood. Adapting these written records of her past, Lateefah has been able to create moving and soulful songs that entertain and educate her listeners about her colorful past.

Lateefah developed her passion for singing from early on as 3 years of age! Her earliest memory of being driven by the art, was trying to hit the right notes in the song “The Lord is my Shepherd”.  Rehearsing relentlessly, until she hit it with pitch perfect precision. After that success and a great deal of extra practice, the music industry became a second home for the young superstar. The music blood has been in Lateefah’s family since her father founded the 70’s Reggae band, Cygnus.

Pavilions – Release Single and Album

Pavilions’ look to the Future with new single release

Pavillions Group 

Album, The Futures Mine to Make, to follow August 11th

 

Alternative rock group, Pavilions, have release debut single ‘Futures’ off their new album The Futures Mine to Make. The band, hailing from The Wirral, has taken their local area by storm with their post-hardcore sound influenced by musicians such as Don Broco, Sleeping with Sirens and Emarosa.

 

‘Futures’ begins with a lingering, flawlessly crafted vocal and guitar riff, exploding into an exciting upbeat rock track – a sound the band have become known for and accentuates their musical talent. The single sums up the whole vibe and direction of the album namely that it is about making the most of your time on this planet and the realisation that the past will always stay the same but you have the ability to shape the future you want.

 

Check out the video for the track here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXOn1YWgLEE

 

Pavilions’ have certainly found their musical direction with new album The Futures Mine to Make, seeing exciting collaborations with the likes of producer, Dan Lancaster (Don Broco, JLS, Rita Ora, Little Mix) and track features from Johnny Craig and Violet front man, Charlie Bass.

 

Their career highlights include a support slot with Jonny Craig and playing to an almost sold out crowd supporting Fearless Vampire Killers and the o2 academy in Liverpool. They have also played a whole host of hometown shows supporting the likes of Deaf Havana, Alkaline Trio and Lower than Atlantis.

 

With such charisma and dedicated support, the potential this band has is colossal and 2014 is looking like it could be their breakthrough year.

 

 

absolutely excellent. A good blend of melody with a hint of aggression… they fed off one another to give a thoroughly enjoyable show

Roland’s Syndicate release new Fusion Album

Rolly’s Syndicate: Little Mullu

Rolands Syndicate

 

Rollys Syndicate are the Warwickshire based band, that are mixing contemporary blues and soul. They are now set to release a new album for the summer. Working together, Milli aids Roland with moving lyrics, whilst Ro’ brings the guitar backing. 

You can take a listen to the band on Soundcloud:

https://soundcloud.com/rollys-guitars/sets/rollys-syndicate-little-mullu

Their music has that open air quality you only reall see in the Jazz genre. With great guitar playing and memorable lyrics, the band congregates together; to make a thoroughly enjoyable collection of moving and expressive tracks.

After a long period of co-operation with the band, Milli could no longer commit to the long term vision of the group. However, in honour of the bands history together, the Roland Syndicate decided to dedicate their debut album to Milli and her lyrical talents.

Fortunately, she happily agreed to collaborate on a short term basis. It’s for this reason that most of the lyrics in the album draw their influence from both the bands everyday life and Milli’s personal journey to this point.

The band has now picked a new vocalist from a selection of more than 30 applicants. Her name is Natalie Brown and the band tells us that she is as good as Milli!

Her background includes being the lead vocalist in the original band, StoneSoulUK from February 2006 to October 2013 (writing and performing mainly original material, as well as cover material). Natalie has also lent her vocal talents to the cover band ‘the Bottle’, whilst studying at university (1997-2000). Ontop of all this she has performed at major west midland venues such as The Yardbird, Victoria Square and The Malthouse.

 

Natalie Brown’s influences include Mary J Blige, Alicia Keys and Michael Jackson.

 

Hungarian born, Roland produced the album as part of achieving a degree at Staffordshire University.  He has showcased his talents at many different live gigs such as: The Public (West Bromwich), Hare & Hounds (Birmingham), Bulls Head (Birmingham), Mixing Bowl Theatre (Birmingham). Roland said that he has played many live gigs but for him the biggest event was at the Sziget Festival.

 

On-top of these live shows, the group has also been featured on the ‘BBC Introducing’ series, played on Radio Warwickshire, Airplay & The Musical Journey show (live), Tweets & web mentions (Clay Lowe/SoulCuzer radio presenter), Radio Plus – Airplay & Live Room Session.

 

Through the years, Milli and Roland have developed a good understanding of the musical influences they wanted to follow, and thus developed a winning musical chemistry. Roland’s professionalism and creativity seemed to work well with Milli adding her soulful tones, as she is not only a talented vocalist, but also an amazing songwriter with a history in Drama and Literature.

 

Benny (drummer) & Luke (bass player) were both attracted to the the unique mix of Soul, contemporary Blues and a touch of jazzy elements, they both relate to in their own personal musical backgrounds.

 

Luke, the bass player in the band was born in Leamington Spa in 1992, picking up his first guitar at the age of 11. It was after watching the video of November Rain that Luke’s hobby turned into a lifelong passion.  He has played from many names such as the African Kora players to Art rock bands and anyone else that would give him his next step into the starlight. His talent developed quickly due to dedication and his love to the art.

 

Benny, the band’s drummer, plays several styles including jazz, rock, blues and funk. He played in jazz trios, big bands, rock and punk bands through the years. He has recently played in the Boogie snakes and the Holly Perkins Bands.  Making appearances on many different jam sessions around Oxfordshire. Bennys drum kit is a vintage Yamaha kit from 1973, Yamaha Vintage Series snare, Zildjian cymbals with Evans heads. The drummer says that his influencers are Dennis Chambers, Ed Thigpen and Zsolt Mike.

 

The Unique combination of styles and influences Rolly’s Syndicate produce demonstrates the colourful background of the group members, Roland’s Passion for blues from a Hungarian Background, Beni’s Amazing talent and vast experience playing with various bands and Luke’s alternative veins and passion for Jazz & World Music.

Caleidra is a young singer songwriter from Manchester. As a multi-instrumentalist with powerful raw vocal talent it’s no wonder her EP ‘Another Day’ saw so much success.

Check out this video to get an introduction to Caleidra:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26Ksqzmik6U

To mark her 18th birthday, the young singer songwriter will be completing a tour of several high schools in the hope of inspiring other promising talent to grab their dreams of being a part of the music industry and to promote her own new found success. The tour will also follow on from her finishing her own ‘A’ Levels, signing a global publishing deal and having one of her songs played nationally on an advert for ‘Talk Talk’ (sponsors of the X Factor!)

17 year old Caleidra first appeared on TV after a song she wrote for her GCSE music exam led to her being snapped up by one of the world’s most successful producers, John McLaughlin (Busted, 911, Westlife), and also Jud Mahoney (Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey, Chris Brown). With added assistance from Co-writer Sara Eker (Atomic Kitten, Honeyz, Dannii Minogue).

Aside from these achievements, Caleidra has appeared on ITV Granada Reports, performed live on BBC Radio Manchester, been featured on ITV Daybreak, in teen magazines Mizz, Shout and MyBliss, Indie Music Mag and Music Week and described in the national press as:

‘Musically gifted’ (The Independent) ‘A grade A hit’ (The Metro) ‘A bright future ahead’ (The Times) ‘Something special’ (The Guardian) ‘Gifted Teenager’ (Indie Music Mag) ‘She looks like a pop star, she sounds like a pop star’ (ITV) ‘Brilliant!
