‘Blueberry Hill’ by Lenny

Having shared a stage with the likes of Razorlight and Feeder, singer-songwriter Lenny Bunn has now recorded his own version of the rock’n’roll classic, ‘Blueberry Hill’.

Lenny offers a more jazzy interpretation of the track which was a favourite of his adopted father who sadly passed away recently. Consequently, the song is dedicated to him. Lenny is evidently pleased with the outcome labelling it ‘more beautiful than ever imagined’.

The popular rock ‘n’ roll cover features talented musician Ibo from the Jamaican reggae band Third World and singer-songwriter Melissa James. Interestingly, the video for ‘Blueberry Hill’ exhibits each member of Lenny’s band recording their section from the comfort of their own homes and studios via an internet call.

Introducing: Chey – Dirty Love

_x2a1868

 

Dirty Love takes a unique view upon a love affair where the woman is in total control of what happens next. Speaking on the track Chey says “I wanted this song to emphasise the power of a woman, and how she uses her sexuality to get what she wants.” Having had previous support from Chris Needs MBE (BBC Wales), Chey hopes her new single will captivate audiences.

Diversifying the music industry and creating an amalgamation of styles and genres, Chey certainly does not take a shy approach. “Dirty Love was written in the heat of the moment, having feelings about someone else can sometimes be the trigger you need to move on from the relationship you’re in. I recorded the vocals the same day it was written, to reflect the emotion, I was feeling at that time, I wanted the single to be raw and edgy and convey as much passion as possible.” She added.

 

Dirty Love seamlessly switches from sultry, soulful lyrics and beautifully constructed melodic runs – into a mesmerizing guitar riff, fusing together to make a memorable ballad. Chey’s debut single Dirty Love is intelligent Indie/pop at its very best.

 

Dirty Love is set for official release on January 20th 2017, and available for pre-order December 23 on ITunes, Spotify and Tidal.

Independent singer-songwriter Nancy Black returns with ‘Dirty Little Bass’ EP written in a moment of euphoria

Independent singer-songwriter Nancy Black has developed her own unique style for her upcoming pop EP ‘Dirty Little Bass’. Black has collaborated with hip hop artists Lonzo Starr and Young Rob, gained support from Major Lazor and reached number 8 on the Music Week Commercial Chart, showing how much she has developed since going solo.

The former member of all-girl rock band Pink Lemons has grown in confidence and formed an addictive pop EP but with killer dance beats, giving it the Nancy Black edge. Although feisty, ‘Dirty Little Bass’ was written in a strange moment of euphoria after a nasty break up with a girl she fell hopelessly in love with.

Joe O’Donnell’s Shkayla are returning with a Christmas single like no other. ‘Noel Nouvelet’ is a unique combination of the traditional Christmas carol ‘Noel Nouvelet’ with ‘The Coventry Carol’ – infused with Celtic, Jazz and Indian musical influences.

Joe O’Donnell grew up in Limerick, Ireland, but in 1996 he moved to Coventry where he first became aware of the Coventry Carol, teaching it to violin students at a evening class. Whilst touring Brittany he learnt the traditional Christmas carol ‘Noel Nouvelet’. He has now blended the two.

Fuelled by five instrumentalists, Joe O’Donnell’s Shkayla blend Celtic, jazz and Indian musical influences to form a distinctive world sound. The band generate great energy and excitement,  whilst maintaining the sensitivity and delicacy needed in keeping faith with Celtic music.

So, get  yourself in the festive spirit and give this crazy, contemporary Christmas carol a listen: https://soundcloud.com/shkayla/noel-nouvelet-2016

Adam Lanceley- ‘Those Rose Tinted Days’

London based singer-songwriter, Adam Lanceley is back with his latest slice of musings on life, ‘Those Rose Tinted Days’, taken from the album, Postcards from Then.

The trials of life have not held back the strong-minded singer-songwriter, Adam Lanceley, whose tragic car crash at the age of ten left him fighting for his life.

After his parents were told his chances of survival were slim and that he certainly would not walk again, Adam was determined to prove them wrong, having to re-learn many skills in the process, even how to talk.

‘Those Rose Tinted Days’ is a track that takes you back to the comforting glow of golden summer memories whilst you’re stuck with the dreary cold and rain of the British winter.

Inspired by classic acts such as the Beach Boys, Roy Orbison and even R.E.M, Adam’s music is well worth a listen if you’re looking for something a little left-field.
