Father-son duo ‘Uneven Stevens’ hit headlines, proving how music PR companies are here to help.

Made redundant last summer, Richard Stevens was left without work. In a stressful situation, his son Oscar decided that they should write a song to send to employers asking them to look beyond the CV and at the person behind the paper.

Amazingly, after hearing ‘Paper Me’, one employer hired Richard Stevens, who now finally has a job after 200 failed applications.

The father-son duo also asked music PR company Quite Great to listen to their song. As an unsigned, one-song band, Uneven Stevens were likely to receive little recognition, but after hearing the heartwarming story, Quite Great gave the band the platform they deserved.

Now, Richard’s story of finding employment through music has reached the upper echelons of UK and Irish press. With headlines in The Scottish HeraldThe Belfast Telegraph and ITV News, as well as broadsheet mentions in The Metro, The Sun and The Star, Uneven Stevens have proven why unsigned artists should always reach out to music PR companies like Quite Great.

‘Paper Me’, and the touching story behind it, is the definition of a feel-good tune and a great example of the music industry pulling together in hard times.

James Day Confronts The Brexit Blunder With Single ‘Keep The Euro, Keep The Pound’

We’ve all had enough of the Brexit blunder and like most of us, Londoner James Day has got behind the nation’s exasperated cry for everyone to ‘just get on with it’! Teaming up with legendary music producer Stuart Epps (Elton John, Led Zeppelin, Oasis), Day has released his single ‘Keep The Euro, Keep The Pound’.

Gritty vocals, grinding rock rhythms and an extremely catchy chorus, Day has gained attention following his live performances on Westminster Bridge and outside Parliament and has acquired the following of both leave and remain activists alike.

Recorded at Scream Studios in South London, Day’s prog-rock sound resonates the likes of The Clash and Paul Weller and this raw energy screams the exacerbation in Day’s message  “see the gathering crowd, why don’t we give ’em some sound? They all got choices, they all got voices, and they can make their country’s proud.” 

Rather like the situation the UK has found itself in, the track has found that by looking to successes in times-past, the route to the future becomes much clearer. What unites us is stronger than anything which divides us.

Downstairs Monsters Deliver Northern England’s Timeless Guitar Pop In The Unlikely Corners of Israel

3000 miles away in a small town near Tel Aviv, the mainstream sounds of dance beats and club tracks have turned to a surprising alternative – Britpop. Titled as Downstairs MonstersLiad Broyde leads an archetypal one-man operation, whereby he composes, sings, plays, produces and records every element of his music all with the same flawless execution of a English guitar bands.

Encapsulating the effortless hooks and nursery rhyme familiarity of The Beatles to Oasis’ anthemic sing-along choruses, Downstairs Monsters latest release ‘In A Flash’, Liad has looked to the past for inspiration – chiefly Israel’s biggest rock star Arik Einstein.

Taking the psych-pop components of Einstein and combining them with the harmonies of such pop joys as The Beach Boys, Downstairs Monsters can at any given moment look to fit perfectly in any decade from the sixties to the present day. Joy-affirming music that takes you back to cinematic classics and that good-time feeling.
