Lanceley Uplifts Listeners With Heart-Warming New Album ‘Sweeter Than Honey’ 

Adam Lanceley proves the phenomenal power of music with his new album, ‘Sweeter Than Honey’, which is exactly the vibe you get listening to his music. The feel-good album is his 11th studio album and he has clearly found his sound. He says, “Sweeter Than Honey marks the end of a long time spent struggling and soul searching,” and “with it, it feels like I’ve found an answer.” Music has been able to provide this artist, like it has done with so many others, a way to escape and process difficult emotions.

Having had death knock on his door at a young age from a debilitating accident that ended his athletic prowess, Lanceley fortunately made it through and turned to music to help him cope. The result? This joyful, inspirational album. The lead single, ‘I’m So Glad’ opens with the gentle strum of the guitar before being joined by Lanceley’s emotional vocals. This feel-good track combines the simple beat of the piano, the enticing strum of the guitar, and Lanceley’s assured vocals to produce an easy to listen to, upbeat song. Lanceley’s strength in overcoming both his physical and mental struggles shines through this album and creates an inspiring message for his listeners.

‘Sweeter Than Honey’ is an album that encapsulates a diverse range of genres, such as pop and blues, to create an optimistic sound. Much like his two previous albums, Lanceley has dedicated ‘Sweeter Than Honey’ to the same person. Lanceley’s joy and strength makes this listening to this album an uplifting experience. Lanceley is no stranger to success either; he has gained over 32k views on Global Talent World which is an extraordinary feat. His clear message clearly resonates with people around the globe. 

With ‘Sweeter Than Honey’ being released on May 14th, now is the perfect time to embrace the inspiring message of Adam Lanceley.

Blues Rockers Steady Rollin’ set to release exclusive UK remix of stunning single You’re Mystical

The Steady Rollin’ wave continues as the El Salvadorian band continue to rock the musical boat.

Hailing from the tiny Central American Republic of El Salvador, Steady Rollin’ have successfully reached the music pages and radio waves of America, Europe and beyond.

Their most recent release, You’re Mystical, quickly became a firm fan favourite.

Grooving and authentic, the track reminded us that Steady Rollin’ are raw rock talent, abandoning studio tricks and providing pure musical prowess

You’re Mystical gets a refresh with a hugely anticipated UK-exclusive remix by top DJ and producer, Elyse Rich (due for release on 16th October).

The track is a love song tinged with the fear of rejection. Singer and guitarist Fernando Poma, explains-

“It’s a love song about a long-married couple where the husband feels a bit insecure about his wife’s love for him. He takes her to a solitary cottage in the woods. He looks at her and feels so much love that just the depth of that love makes him so scared of losing her.

At one point he asks her to take a walk with him under the stars – he wants to see if the “stars are still shining” for HIM regarding her love for him. They get back into the house and he looks at her in the kitchen and can’t do anything but “sigh”. He loves her so much that he is afraid. He finds her truly mystical and otherworldly”. 

The trio that make up Steady Rollin, Benjamin Andrade on drums and backing vocals, Gerardo Pardo on bass and Fernando Poma on guitar and lead vocals, have captured the ears and hearts of audiences across the globe.

Transcending borders, their outreach goes far and wide, establishing the bluesy rockers as ones to watch.

On top of the magical You’re Mystical remix, Steady Rollin’ have a full 10 track project in the works entitled ‘Love & Loss’.

‘Love & Loss’ is set for release on strictly limited-edition vinyl just in time for Christmas.

Follow Steady Rollin’ and get excited.

Roots songwriter John Fairhurst set to debut new trio with upcoming singles and LP

First single ‘Breakdown’ released August 18th, followed by ‘No Shelter’ September 27th

Album ‘Saltwater’ released October 18th

Bristol based, the John Fairhurst Band are a newly formed trio fronted by their eponymous songwriter. Drawing from Rock, blues and world music, with a penchant for slide guitar and a distinctive deep growling voice, his songs, delivered in pure raconteur style, narrate all the hardships of life on the road

For the first time, John Fairhurst will be releasing his new album – and the preceding singles – accompanied by a powerhouse rhythm section of Bristols young guns: Toby Murray & Pete Episcopo.

For a taste of their sound, check out this video for ‘Breakdown’:

http://youtu.be/2_FazFk_EGw

The new releases is a turning point in the career of John Fairhurst, marking the shift from solo artist and duo member to power rock blues trio. In the course of his career so far, he has spent the last decade travelling the world and supported the likes of Fun Lovin’ Criminals, performed with world beatbox champions Bellatrix and Reeps1 and the late, great, blues legend Johnny Winter. He includes Winter among his fans, as well as Robbie Macintosh of The Pretenders and Indian Sarod Master, K Sridhar– just a small indication of the quality of his live show.

The new material is the fruit of first class production: Alex Beitzke (Jamiroquai, Florence and The Machine, Nigel Kennedy, Ed Sheeran, Prince) , Paul Cartledge (Tony Visconti) and mastering engineer Ray Staff (Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, The Clash).

This fantastic pedigree of collaborators is the result of a prolific approach to gigging, playing between 200-250 gigs a year between 2011 and 2014. Highlights include taking to the stage at SXSW in Austin, Texas, playing the Roundhouse in London and opening for Johnny Winter on his European Tour. That’s not to mention countless festival appearances and 35 gigs at Glastonbury alone since 2008, including a performance this year on The Glade Stage.

All highly impressive for a career that he “fell into” almost by chance. Taking a tumble down an unmarked manhole while labouring on a building site, Fairhurst had little mobility for a year following a serious knee injury. He used some of the money from the accident compensation to immediately buy a National Resonator guitar, playing it incessantly for the year he was bed bound, truly feeling the blues. It’s during this year that he really developed virtuoso finger-picking techniques and found the sound which carried him across four continents.

Richard Rhys O’Brien’s debut album is now made available online for all music lovers worldwide. “I Know A Little Place” is an album full of inspirational songs, fun lyrics and great musical arrangement that audiences around the world would surely love to include in their playlist.

Listen to the album here: http://richardrhysobrien.com/albums/iknowalittleplace/

Richard Rhys O’Brien is a singer songwriter who started writing in 2009, after a career as an economist and futurist. This background has taught him many things about how the world revolves, inspiring him to write his songs of love and life, accompanied by wry commentary on contemporary issues such as climate change (as in “cloud on the horizon”- video included) and consumerism – with the accompanying video “ choice would be a fine thing”.

Richard Rhys O’Brien style draws on folk, rock, blues, country and classical influences – particularly inspired by a lifelong following of Loudon Wainwright III, Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen. He has been singing with the North London choir Eclectic Voices since 2000 (jazz, gospel, classical and world music) and plays piano and keyboards.

Some of his popular songs that are included in his debut album are “Take it as it Comes”, “Audition Blues”, “Silvery Moon”, “Rollercoaster”, “She Said Yes!”The song “No truth, No Lies” is one of the more serious songs where Richard Rhys O’Brien reveals a little bit  of a preachy  tone and “Heroes or zeroes” reflects on the slide from great leadership to dictatorship . in contrast other songs on the album like ““If You Say You Cannot See My Shadow” and “Be Like a Bird” display his playful and lighter tones.

His songs feature other professional and talented musicians and singers like Bruce Knapp (guitars), Tony Shepherd (drums), Richard Sadler (bass), Christine Axelle and Callie Howard (supporting vocals) all produced with Matthew Knapp and recorded in Brighton.

His debut album, composing 14 songs, is mainly inspired by the blues, tangos, waltz and lullaby, reflecting modern life and love with accompaniment of sparkling guitar, tinkling piano, pulsating bass and drums as well as great lyrics that are sung with remarkable clarity.

Songwriter Richard Rhys O’Brien knows exactly how to strike a delicate balance between playful arrangements and heartfelt songwriting that infuses great musical direction from different band’s muses. Richard Rhys O’Brien’s debut album is available on iTunes and Amazon Store.

Guitar Sensation ‘Daryl Kellie’ to Release New Album ‘Wintersong’

To find your first guitar at the young age of eleven in the attic of your parent’s new house is a lucky find, but for Daryl Kellie, it can only be described as fate. Self taught for most of his life, he is undeniably one of the most talented fingerstyle guitar players in the UK, with influences ranging from Queen to Django Reinhardt. Daryl has combined his unique talent with his mesmerising vocals, and he will be releasing his highly anticipated album ‘Wintersong’ on 10th February 2014.

By the age of sixteen, Daryl was gigging every weekend, with his younger brother Nick on drums. He moved to London when he was nineteen to study music, and hasn’t looked back. Living in his van, with a bed, camp-stove and of course, a guitar in the back, this was when he really started to develop as an artist. He was even taught by Jazz guitar legend Martin Taylor. Despite attracting lots of attention from music managers, Daryl decided to remain completely independent and release his own music without the help of a label. Daryl’s message to others who may be in this predicament is “figure out what you really love and concentrate on that, if you try to do something else, your heart won’t be in it”. His ever-growing fan-base means he can also tour without the involvement of big promoters.

Daryl has toured constantly for the past 2 years and supported a massive range of acts, from Toploader to Carl Palmer of Emmerson Lake and Palmer fame, plus notorious American blogger Perez Hilton has also raved about him….”So clever! So good! And, the fact that he’s gorgeous doesn’t hurt either!”.

Here are just a couple of the many outstanding reviews he has received:

‘Daryl Kellie is a brilliant and exciting new musical talent’

– Richard Chapman, (Author of the million selling classic ‘The Complete Guitarist and ‘The New Complete Guitarist’)

‘To call Daryl a guitarist would be a bit of an over simplification. A million miles away from that guy who used to walk around college twanging his way through Green Day covers to anyone who’d listen, Daryl treats his guitar like a mix between a drum kit, a keyboard and a guitar. Utilizing an oft attempted (but rarely mastered) ‘tapping’ technique along with ‘body percussion’ as employed by fellow guitarists such as Eric Roche and Tommy Emanuel, Daryl dropped jaws with his cheeky cover of Beyonce’s omnipresent ‘Single Ladies’ and literally melted minds with an extended Michael Jackson medley. Anything that makes hearing ‘Single Ladies’ for the billionth time a little less ear-stabbingly repetitive deserves the highest praise imaginable.

–Sternberg Clarke

If you can’t wait to hear the album, Daryl is releasing a cover of the Beyonce hit ‘Single Ladies’ on December 16th.
