Celebrating Album Release With a UK Tour – The Floating Bridges

The Floating Bridges have made a name for themselves in their native Queensland, working with local legend Brian Goodworth and receiving praise from Australian icon Jimmy Barnes when they supported him in concert. Their debut album, ‘Chasing Sunsets’, made an impact on its release in 2012, and gained the band a dedicated following. Now, ‘Creatures of Leisure ’is set to bring further success for the dreadlock-wearing members of the band.

The track features the traditional offbeat rhythms of reggae as well as the spiritual side of roots music, combined with Jimi Hendrix-style rock-n-roll guitar, which allows for an undeniably original yet authentic sound.

The Floating Bridges are touring the UK from 17th July  – not be to missed!

They may live thousands of miles from Bob Marley’s native Jamaica, but The Floating Bridges have been inspired by the legendary reggae artist to make music, and, combining the recognisable rhythms with heavy guitar, they have made it their own.

Eban Brown, Lead Singer of ‘The Stylistics’, Announces UK Tour & Opening Night for Charity

Acclaimed vocalist and musician Eban Brown has announced his 2015 UK tour and Opening Night Charity Event for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Best known as the lead vocalist of the multi-platinum group ‘The Stylistics’, Eban Brown will be touring the UK for a month from 6th March to 6th April. He has written and produced a single called “Eyes of a Child” in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital, which we will perform at each of his concerts along his tour.

“It is with great honour that I announce my 2015 UK Tour as a solo artist. I have written and produced a song entitled “Eyes of a Child” for Great Ormond Street Hospital. Families need the assistance and great care that GOSH can provide, and I am so blessed to have the opportunity to contribute to such a worthwhile cause. As a parent myself, the thought of your child being ill is unbearable but through the help of others, we can all be making a contribution to help in some small way! All proceeds from “Eyes of a Child” will benefit the children of Great Ormond Street Hospital, with 100% of profits going to the UK’s only academic biomedical research centre specialising in paediatrics.“- Eban Brown

Aussie four piece Velshur precede stunning debut EP with single ‘Spanish Sound’

Single out June 6th, soon to be followed by self titled debut EP and EU/UK tour

 

A combination of funk rock, pop and soul, four piece Velshur are set to explode onto British shores this summer. Having just been to the UK and EU for some debut shows, they are now set for their first international release and will be returning to the UK and E.U in September!

One of the hardest working bands on the Australian circuit, a combination of residencies and touring saw them play 96 gigs over the four months of the Aussie snow season, very quickly building their fanbase and a reputation for performing their brand of soul warming funk rock. They are most often compared to Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Dandy Warhols and The Strokes.

In the months since, the band have been working equally hard to put together their first 4 track EP, to be introduced in early June with the debut single ‘Spanish Sound’.

Listen to hear the track here: https://soundcloud.com/velshur/spanishsound

Watch the video trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AplXvhl9d2g

The track is a bombastic, slow build funk rock song with solid rhythms, basslines and guitar riffs that work together to support a rasping rock vocal. It’s all wrapped around a huge, hooky chorus that leaves little wonder as to why Velshur delighted hundreds of fans night after night during their Winter residencies.

The single and EP were put together under the watchful dials of Grammy nominated engineer Blake Eiseman, who has worked with the likes of James Brown to Beyonce, Justin Beiber, Pink to Pearl Jam and a number of other big-name artists, with initial production help from Nicholas Wilson, who has recently worked with Wolfmother and toured with Seasick Steve and John Paul Jones from Led Zeppelin . Once it’s out fans around the globe will undoubtedly be tuning in and dancing to their much anticipated debut release.
