The Ex Convict, Ang Low, embraces his musical prowess with the release of new single “If I Slipped”

Against all the odds, the Brooklyn based singer-songwriter and producer has manufactured an exceptional R&B track by blending momentous topics such as religion and romance with compelling drum beats and synth riffs. Low’s soothing vocal melody throughout this exhilarating single further transcends his musical genius and hones in on the emotional turmoil of making regretful decisions.

Low’s road to this musical greatness has been far from a quiet ride. Low has served a substantial amount of time in jail and suffered hugely from depression during the cold, lonely nights in a prison cell. But Low has been able to use his first-hand account of this traumatic experience into a positive musical outlet. Low says:

“I just wrote songs in my cell every day. I had no clue where to go from there. But the music just kept me sane, writing kept me focused and going. Eventually this mentality just blossomed into an artist.”– Ang Low

Make sure you keep your eyes firmly fixated on Ang Low’s SoundCloud account around mid-late July 2021, as this is when “If I Slipped” will finally be released. This single to me feels like it has been divulged by a seasoned musician with decades of experience, whereas Low has only been on the scene for a number of years. He is an up and coming artist you will not want to miss!

Théa Marie Marie set to tug at our heartstrings with stunning debut album

London based singer-songwriter Théa Marie sets her sights on greatness with the forthcoming release of debut album Then.

Théa Marie is a Franco-American talent, combining the sounds of her multinational background and upbringing into an unstoppable indie-pop blend we guarantee you haven’t heard yet. 

Born and raised in Cannes France before studying in New York and eventually settling in London, Théa Marie is undeniably a well travelled talent. This diverse life experience and influence is what gives Thèa’s sound an authentic and rare tone. 

Then is an 8-track project composed of soulful indie-pop tracks infused with Thèa’s original sense of flair and style. The album’s lead single Start Of Us is a catchy, infectious indie single that is sure to propel Thea to the next level of stardom. 

Thèa labels her musical direction as Retro-Soul, with project Then centred around the theme of nostalgia. Thea explains- 

“It’s all about being reluctant to grow up because childhood memories are so appealing and simple. Every song relates to a memory or emotions that have led me to feel bitter about growing up and being nostalgic for those more innocent times. For example, Sleepy Summer is about not wanting summer to end and dreading to have to go back to work; Don’t Walk Away was inspired by a dream where I was telling my younger self not to abandon me; Times of My Life is about pleading to bring back the simplicity of my childhood to my present. Most of the songs were written and inspired by my shift to becoming independent”.

Théa Marie oozes quality and authenticity, a true talent and an exciting future female star in the indie pop genre.

Debut album Then has the rare power to take us back, reminiscent and powerful this project is not to be missed. Then is set for release on 28th August, get excited and get ready.

Joshua Howlett’s Debut Is An Indie Delight

Born in Manchester, brought up in Switzerland: Joshua Howlett’s debut album (set for release in early 2019 is a perfect blend of both cultures. Taking the guitar music that Mancs have always excelled at and his tranquil and breath-taking surrounding as his muse, Joshua Howlett’s debut album ‘Autumnal’ is a melodic mix of fold and indie, in the great dreamlike tradition of artists such as Ben Howard and Bon Iver.

 

The themes of the album are manifold but all tinged with soulful insight: there is plenty here about experiences that are common to us all: hopes, dreams, love and axiety. The natural world features heavily too, almost as a character in the folk-epic itself. This is wild music, elemental and fresh.

Corinna Jane Is Back With 'Echoes Of My Mind'


Talented singer-songwriter Corinna Jane is cementing herself in the pop music scene with the second release from her upcoming EP Hard In Love. ‘Echoes of My Mind’ picks up where Corinna left off with ‘Three Faces Of You’ in terms of musical quality, but she takes on a slightly different ballad-esque sound with the new single.
‘Echoes Of My Mind’ is a highly introspective track from Corinna, looking back to a difficult break up for the inspiration of the song. It addresses the sort of recurring flashbacks in your mind of past experiences that you can’t seem to get rid of, evoking a strong sense of longing, but pain too.
Corinna has never been afraid of being herself, crafting her own unique brand of piano driven alternative rock. The keen actress, model and radio presenter has a quirky style and personality, which has led to her receiving airplay on the likes of BBC Radio 6, Amazing Radio and BBC Introducing and making the top 5 solo artists at the Rock The House Competition.
Having supported Black Beard’s Tea Party, Marina Celeste from Nouvelle Vague, Leddra Chapman and been a guest vocalist/co-writer with German DJ Mark-Oh, it’s clear Corinna is ready to take the music industry by storm.

'Home'- The New Album From James Kennedy


If you’re up to date on the Welsh rock scene, then you may recognise James Kennedy from hardcore alt-rock band, Kyshera. Now, after long stints of touring and contemplating on his next move, James is back with his solo album, Home, that sees him move at a tangent from his previous work.
After touring Europe extensively with Kyshera and even supporting the Stereophonics, James began to suffer from fell depression which inspired him to release his first proper solo release. Kennedy used the process as a form of therapy, writing, recording and mastering the album within just a few months. His melodic yet emotional and catchy style expresses his experience during the past few years of constant touring.
At a young age, James had to have surgery performed on three occasions due to arising hearing conditions that could have jeopardised his entire music career. Fortunately, although eh was missing out at school, James became proficient as a self-learner, teaching himself guitar, piano and bass, as well as singing. He then took these skills to The Welsh College of Music and Drama which led to James working in recording studios and eventually, setting up his own label, Konic records.
Titled the 32nd sexiest man in Wales, James Kennedy doesn’t just have soulful raspy vocals and a dynamic performance style. Drawing similarities with Prince, The Script and Paolo Nutini, ‘Home’ reflects Kennedy’s journey of depression from dark to light.
Home is out 31st March 2017.

‘Only One’ the new single from sincere singer-songwriter Jessie Lowes

IMG_103622016929500

One of Northumberland’s most talented emerging artists, acoustic singer-songwriter, Jessie Lowes is set to release her new single ‘Only One’ November 28th. Following the success of her last single ‘Stars’, Lowes popularity  has soared as she gains national recognition for her beautiful,  emotive music.

True to Lowes style of raw and emotive lyrics, the new track explores the heartbreak of losing someone you love, in an honest and heartfelt manner.

Lowes life has not been an easy journey and she has been through a series of testing and turbulent times. Spending some of her early life in foster care, music has always been the one constant in Lowes’ life.

Recent years have also been tough on Lowes as she lost her mother of whom she was very close with and has suffered the agony of a marital breakup. The talented Lowes transforms the pain of these torturing times into beautifully moving music that speaks directly from her heart to the audience.

An ex-cage fighter and club level rugby player, Lowes’ masculine background contrasts her delicate lyrics and soulful delivery. Lowes music delves into the depths of human emotion and beautifully expresses the pain and beauty of life.

 

Lowes has recently released the video for ‘Only One’. The video aptly captures Lowes heartache, delivering a powerful and moving visual of the raw emotion Lowes emits.

Lowes has received a host of radio plays and is rapidly gaining popularity across the UK.

‘’She  has a very unique personal story to tell. With the right guidance she could really go far’’-  Source FM

Singer-songwriter Lauren Rich set for EP and single release

‘The Same Sky’ EP and ‘The Drink Talking’ single both released 29th September

Born in London and living in Hertfordshire, Lauren Rich is a singer-songwriter who certainly knows how to weave her distinctive voice around an effective acoustic chord pattern. With a taste for harmony and autobiographical lyrics that mean her songs border on country, Lauren is an artist with a bright future.

The next step in her musical career will see Lauren run a simultaneous release, with single ‘The Drink Talking’ taken from EP ‘The Same Sky’. Recorded with engineer Alan Emptage (Skunk Anansie, Arcade Fire, London Grammar, Adam Ant, Boy George) at OneLouder Studios, the single was written with a hangover when Lauren realised she sent a drunken text to a guy the night before: https://soundcloud.com/laurenrichmusic/the-drink-talking

Impressively, the full EP was recorded around spells in hospital where Lauren was recently diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease. However, she made it a point of pride to continue with her work, not wanting to let people down seeing as the EP was paid for by her fans, who supported her through a successful crowd funding campaign.

It’s little wonder that she is turning so many heads. Having performed at prestigious London venues such as Proud in Camden and The Water Rats in Kings Cross, not to mention playing live during radio interviews with BBC London and BBC Three Counties, her knack for catchy, acoustic melodies is clearly catching on.

In the meantime, ‘The Same Sky’ EP and ‘The Drink Talking’ single are both released 29th September.
