Izzy’s New Music Emporium – Week 12: 15/09/2021 – Play List

Charity Stow released ‘Perfect Thought’ on 10th September.

Charity Stow is an upcoming singer-songwriter based in Nottingham. She comes from a musical family and has always worked with her father to create her own sound. Both are self-taught musicians and this has informed Charity’s intuitive attitude towards music. Music has always been a part of her life and as such she has taken influence from oldies such as Carole King, Bob Dylan and The Beatles to inspire her song writing. But she is constantly learning from new artists such as Billie Marten, Daughter and Lucy Rose in order to find her niche.

Charity’s hometown is the small, quaint town of Stamford and since leaving there to move to Nottingham she has taken much more of an interest in song writing. Sometimes a dramatic change is what it is needed to ignite a young songwriter working her way through a new phase in life and the inevitability of feeling lost without the bubble of home to guide you. Song writing is a form of therapy for Charity and you can hear this through the honesty of her lyrics and passion behind the tracks.

Charity is finding her own place in the music scene and is creating a unique sound through which to channel her experiences. Her debut, original single ‘Here’ gels her old-time, soulful influences with a modern and exciting feel. In 2020 she followed that up with the catchy, lazy groove of her second single ‘Fool’ and the electric guitar driven single ‘Wake Up’. Her debut EP, ‘Perfect Thought’, releases in September 2021.

Charity has a web site at charitystow.com and is on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok and YouTube.

 

Freya Wolfe has released ‘Meet Me At 8’.

Following on from the success of the debut single “This Man Is Mine” Freya Wolf returns with the stonishingly good new single “Meet Me At 8”. Freya’s music is a timeless reminder of the sensational sounds of the 60s and 70s drawing on influences such as Aretha Franklin & Nina Simone. For the promoter  “’This Man Is Mine’ reminds me of Sandy Shaw, Dusty Springfield and the pure soulful music of a bygone era brought to life in these modern times. Such a feel good track dropping just in time for the summer. ‘Meet Me At 8’ is a track you are going to love.”

Serious Child & Andy Ruddy released a new single, ‘All My friends are Famous’ on 3rd September.

Serious Child & Andy Ruddy released a new album, ‘Talk About the Weatheron 3rd September. It is a unique and fascinating project that has seen two artists of different generations and musical backgrounds, come together and explore what unites people of different age groups in British contemporary music. For the songs, they had a basic rule – each one had to be about something. A topic, or an emotion, that appealed them and would be of interest to other people of all different age groups.

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions the album was written completely interactively on Zoom and Google Docs across 8 months of Thursdays. The actual recording of the album also provided some challenges which included Andy having to sing his parts in a wardrobe surrounded by his partner’s coats! Rock n Roll!

The single ‘All My Friends Are Famous’ has been taken from that album.

Andy Ruddy explains its origins, ““I had the misfortune of catching a few TV talk shows over the Christmas period – all of the questions to the celebrities were basically asking them about other celebrities. The stories themselves were extremely boring but they were communicated and received as fascinating just because it involved famous people. I had a title ‘All Your Friends Are Famous’ in my phone for a couple of years because I’ve always found the sycophantry of celebrity interesting and irritating in equal measure. It was a coincidence because Alan had suggested writing a song about the concept of fame, so it was a good fit. Alan and I discussed the hierarchical nature of the music business. The way if you haven’t got 10000 followers and a blue tick you will be mostly ignored by people on social media if you ever reach out to them- the quality of your music is irrelevant in that world. As ever with our stuff we tried to do it in a gently poking fun way with Alan tempering my little resentments writing sarcastically from the point of view of a socialite celebrity.”

The album is available from fourleftfeet.co.uk/serious-ruddy and they each have their own website – seriouschild.com and andyruddy.com and they will be touring during September.

On 3rd September, Midnight at 7 released ‘Never Be In Love Again’.

Midnight at 7 is proud to announce the release of their debut single ‘Never Be In Love Again’, a summery yet bittersweet tune about the joys and fears of falling in love. ‘Never Be In Love Again’ is a pop gem infused with pure summer vibes. Influenced by Justin Timberlake’s ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling’, Maroon 5’s ‘Sugar’ and Charlie Puth’s ‘Attention’, the track’s upbeat piano chimes, catchy lyricism and dancey beat carries a heartfelt melody reflecting on a conflict between love and loneliness.

“The song is about the inherent fear of falling in love again because of past trauma and the baggage it carries” says singer Ryan de Ocampo. “It’s about feeling conflicted as to whether or not the search for that special someone is even worth it all. Yet the song also acknowledges that maybe a miracle can truly happen – or maybe one is only enticed by the idea of reciprocal love that truly matters.”

‘Never Be In Love Again’ marks the first of many tracks due for release by the trio. Watch this space!

Her voice style and genre is distinct, raw and gives her music an incredible commercial, but almost underground sound at the same timeless, not pretty and pink, but black on black.

The show is available on MixCloud.
