‘Ashes’ is the second track from Xander Cameron’s EP ‘Rebel RM Roseme’ which is available on Spotify.

Musical narration birthing from a nightmare doesn’t come around often. To be six years old and diagnosed with an incredibly rare skin condition deforming the right side of the face left Cameron branded a freak. Excluded and doubted growing up, but with a hunger to silence the hate and proudly represent the light that can dimly glimmer from the darkness, we learn of a modern underworld through his poetically woven songs. In an age plagued by cosmetic surgeries, insta-famous models, to mental health, addiction and embracing your weird, Cameron proudly represents the latter as a ringleader of the modern day freak-show. Self-taught in both song writing and producing, Xander Cameron’s desolately real magnification of an underbelly of society, frequently overlooked; presents an intricately woven thesis of 21st Century culture. Intertwining theological song writing with his dystopian angle of music production, Cameron showcases exactly why his name pools amongst the pioneering narrators of dark pop.

Rebel RM Roseme is available on Spotify now. Expect his second EP, ‘South Stage Broadway’, to hit the ground running in the second half of 2021.

British singer songwriter, Nick Reeve released ‘The Heat’ on 23rd July.

Influenced by the unexpected lack of human connection during the lockdown period, Nick combines twanging and jangly guitars emulating the heat of the desert, with contemporary sounds for a fresh summer feel good vibe. Following on from the success of his previous single ‘Magic’ (released May 2021), Nick is keen to deliver a positive and energising message through his music.

Nick Says, “I wanted to write something high energy, fun and about connection. During lockdown we have all been starved of parties, dancing and meeting people; we all want to feel chemistry and excitement – I wanted to create something groovy that we would love to dance to and just let go.”

In this testing time for humanity, Tom delivers a powerful message of hope, encouraging us to adopt a higher state of consciousness and listen to the earth and the intuition of its traditional owners. A message of ‘macrospect’, he explains, “It’s a word I made up myself, but it sounds perfect in the way I feel the world should be viewed, with acceptance and a mature calmness in knowing nothing for certain.”

He developed ‘Busking For Beds’ as a way for artists to make money through busking whilst giving back to charities dealing with homelessness and mental health.

I wanted positive texts with a colourful approach, the kind of feeling that was hard to find during pandemic! To produce this album, I collaborated with Babl Lemmen. It was a great opportunity working with him”

Charlie Gracie will be releasing ‘Can’t Stop Rock’n’ on August 27th.

Charlie Gracie is one of a diminishing number of rock & roll innovators. A native of South Philadelphia, he became the first successful recording star of the “Rock Era” to emerge from that neighbourhood. In 1957, Charlie’s ‘Butterfly’ topped the American and British music charts, selling over 3 million copies. At the height of his fame, Charlie frequently appeared on TV as well as headlining a number of life shows. Charlie’s star burned even brighter in Great Britain where he became the first solo American artist to bring rock & roll to the English concert stage. A member of the Rockabilly Hall of Fame and the Philadelphia Music Hall of Fame, Charlie shows no signs of slowing down. He still plays to packed houses all around the world. Recent tours have taken him to France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, Finland and Great Britain -the site of his greatest success. Though so much has changed around him, much of Charlie’s life remains constant. He is a family man, first and foremost. He still reveres the memory of his parents and grandparents, who encouraged him to pursue his love for music. And he considers his fans his family. Talk about close relations.

Charlie says, “When all is said and done… I’m still little Charlie Gracie from South Philly who sings and plays the guitar. If you ever came to see me perform, and found yourself entertained, and I made you happy for a few hours, then I’ve fulfilled my mission in this life.”

 

Jake Wakeman & The Dreamstriders will be releasing ‘Visions’ on 27th August.

The type of music a medieval bard would make if he got lost in time and space and woke up in the 21st century, a mellifluous melting pot of heavy synthesisers, chorused 12 string guitars, punchy drums and melodic bass lines dusted with theatrical arrangements of classical and folk music instrumentation. Songwriter and composer Jack Wakeman has his material brought to a live audience with the help of his four piece backing band The Dreamstriders on a quest to find the holy grail of sound. There’s a long back story about how he moved round the country, suffered from mental ill health, which he overcame in part by turning to Paganism. Now with four singles at the ready, three music videos in the works and a possible album on the horizon Jack Wakeman & The Dreamstriders will release their debut single, ‘Visions’ in August 2021.

In the late Summer, Ronan Furlong is releasing his new album, “Ataraxia” from which the single “The Easy Way Out” has been taken.

There is no stopping Irish artist Ronan Furlong. Following on from the critically acclaimed “King Of Leaves” album, Ronan has been hard at work in the studio on the follow up to be released late summer “Ataraxia”. “The Easy Way Out” is the first second single from that studio album. Ataraxia is shaping up to be a diverse and powerful collection of highly unique songs with “The Easy Way Out” being a fine example of what lies in store.

“The Easy Way Out” displays all of Ronan’s usual qualities in abundance – an edgy driving riff, excellent lyrics, a committed vocal delivery, high level musicianship and an acoustic middle eight that brings the song in new unexpected directions. Thoroughly original and highly recommended.

Ronan has a website at https://ronanfurlong.com/ and he is on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Google Music and Spotify.

 

The show is available on MixCloud.
