Irish musician/singer songwriter living in London. Just released my debut EP called Tomorrow Means Nothin' on Spotify, Apple Music etc. Influences include Noel Gallagher, Ryan Adams, Springsteen and Dylan
"His voice is unique, When you listen to it he sure has a voice for country and Americana music"
Introduction: Tim Bennett grew up in Southern California listening to a wide variety of music from Rock, Pop, Country, Blues, Folk, and Bluegrass. "There was no musical genre called Americana when I was a kid", says Tim. "Americana has evolved from a music cast off by other mainstream genres for not fitting their particular mold. Americana can rock and soar, break your heart and make you cry, make you laugh or make you proud. It's definitely made in America." Tim is the former lead singer/songwriter for the band Whistler’s Father, an Americana group whose independent 2015 release “Highly Irregular” received airplay globally. "I Really Don't Miss You At All" made the Top 40 of The Roots Music Report Americana Chart and The Top 75 of The Fan Voted Chart.
"Amazing guitar slides, great written lyric again. I like the transition from melodic hard rock to noise rock, it makes this band fascinating to hear. This is perfect for many festivals in this genre"
Formed in 2014 in Denver, Colorado, Against Himself fuse elements of rock and metal. Shortly after forming, they released a four-track self-titled EP, which exhibited their hard-hitting potential. Their celerity in recording their first EP exemplifies their focus on not over-complicating the equation by agonizing over obstacles. David Hunt, the vocalist of Against Himself, explains, “If you want to achieve anything in life, the only true barrier to getting where you want to go is yourself. Just remove yourself from your own path and you won’t be working against yourself; you’ll likely achieve what you want to do. The only barriers that exist are the ones you allow to be there.” The band, never intimidated by the prospect of experimenting with their sound to continually create unique music, is true to their motto that “there is no failure, only a process of elimination, and trial and error.”
While not inherently a political band, Against Himself is not afraid to tackle political ideas and avoid the stereotypical rock and roll topics that ensure record sales but lack a message that would connect them with their audience. When describing the songwriting process, Hunt notes, “I like to talk about things that matter, things that most people avoid. Strippers and coke – they’re great, fuck yeah! But when you’re being robbed by your government and there’s shit going on that’s way bigger, sometimes there’s something that needs to be said. It’s hard to change the world, but the way we know how to do it is through music.”
The Awakening – produced by the legendary Logan Mader of Once Human and Machine Head, and recorded in Las Vegas, NV – features 11 tracks with themes encompassing “the awakening of us, of reality, of people, of the world.” Regarding the meaning of their debut album’s title, Hunt says, “There is a major awakening going on and there’s going to be a revolution, it’s just not going to happen the way people imagine it will. It’s going to be around social media, with the youth being more educated, making bigger and better decisions than the generation before them.” For David as a lyricist, the driving force behind the album’s theme is the ability to share a connection with the band’s audience. He explains, “I’m always the one holding up the show when a new song comes out because I don’t want to write something just to write it; I want it to be real. If every song is real, I will feel it on stage. Our fans watching will get more enjoyment out of it and will feel it as well. The energy connection will be much stronger.”
"He has a pure and warm vocal, this is a great recorded song it is kinda a mix of pop music and folk"

SubClass is from Birmingham in the UK and is predominantly a recording act, these three songs are representative of the diverse sound of SubClass, sometimes it’s more electronic, sometimes it’s more guitar based. It’s always melody driven.
"I can hear the singer reach high octaves as well lower octaves, but like I said with the enhancer it is difficult to hear if it is his real pure sound. I can hear Max vocal sound, and it is really good and I love the parts when they all sing together"
This is Max Koffler and he has finished his second album, released under the label sonsoundsmusic. The title GAMES is fitting, because the 14 songs on this beautifully arranged LP all have a sense of playfulness, as does the album cover, which features a colorful abstract painting by Albrecht Oehlen
Beyond playfulness, GAMES defies neat categorization, as it contains a wide range of sounds and moods, from the melancholic and wistful to the upbeat and carefree. Many tracks display powerful vocals and an infectious rhythm. Energetic vocals and guitars are augmented by carefully dosed synthetic sounds and electronic beats. With its authentic rawness and brilliance, GAMES has a complexity and depth that is not quickly exhausted. Jimmy Douglass, who mixed the album at his Magic Mix Studios in Miami, describes it: "We emphasize the good things."

"he immediately starts to rap with his great Irish Accent and it sounds all very pure, I love the deep vocal he has."

Mainly working with producers around the world. The internet brings us all together. To share ideas as well as critiques. Ganiyu's need to express the voice of his peers. Telling the story that would be unknown to the world. May songs have been recorded and still sitting in the vault. The hustle as an independent artist is real but at the same time, it gives you something to talk about. 'What I would say has played the biggest part in shaping the sound of 'Ganiyu TLG' is the drive to be heard.
I love her voice it is dark with emotions and with a hoarseness, together with the piano, it is a masterpiece and very emotionally loaded.
Once a band, now a solo project, Murmur Tooth is the songs of Leah Hinton. Sometimes dark, sometimes light, sometimes grimy, sometimes beautiful, not for elevators, not for dancing.Leah grew up in rural New Zealand playing classical piano and wanting to be a doctor. At 15 she heard Nirvana’s Bleach album and everything changed. She began teaching herself guitar and decided to study music instead of medicine. At university, she formed an avant-metal band and spent the next 10 years playing around Australasia and Europe. Leah formed Murmur Toothsome years after settling in Berlin, Germany. It was here that she became fascinated by the possibilities of the recording, mixing and producing process as an extension of the creative songwriting process, and she built herself a home recording studio.“Dropping Like Flies” is the result of this. Written, played, recorded and mixed by Hinton, it is her attempt at capturing that dark, awesome, spine-tingling feeling that she first felt when she heard Bleach all those years ago.

"This music is fresh, new and they have certainly potential to become known worldwide and play gigs with their fresh punk sound"
Second Hand Arms Dealer is a brand new Punk Rock Band from Bristol, formed 3 months ago. We have a huge sound with a political edge. Taking influence from RATM, White Stripes, Royal Blood, Sex Pistols and Chilli's
Drawing from multiple different influences means the range of music is vast. From Rage Against The Machine to Ben Howard there are no limitations to the sound this three produce. That being said all of their music has a similar feel. Schofield adds flavor to his drums with counter-rhythms which play with and taunt the listener. Shortman juxtaposes heavy and thundering chorus riffs with beautifully crafted verse melodies running through his intricate pedal board to create a sonic wonder. While Spurrell connects the two with sporadic and funky bass lines while drawing the listener close with his soft voice only to unleash the full power of his blues-rock inspired, angst is driven, an edge of your seat vocals.
"the lead singer can sing marvelous notes in low and high octaves"
Formed in 2012 and, Black Income is a Danish Alternative Rock Band that comes out of the 90’ - Grunge and Hard Rock scene praised by the critics from all over the world for the latest album “Noise Pollution”. Black Income describe themselves as "a new rock identity rooted in the waters of the grunge genre". Their lyrical expression comprises honesty and realism, and originality is said to be what drives the band, though artists such as Queens Of The Stone Age, Fu Manchu, Alice In Chains, Soundgarden and Stone Temple Pilots inspire them.
After only one year together, in 2013, Black Income teamed up with producer Soren Andersen (Glenn Hughes, Mike Tramp, D-A-D) and entered the legendary Medley Studio in Copenhagen, where bands like Radiohead, D-A-D, and Kent has recorded some of their best albums. In 2016 the album ‘Noise Pollution’ was released, it's twelve hard-hitting and extremely well-written rock-tunes with a focus in the riff and the catchy melody, from the guys who are smitten by the melodic grunge of the 90’s. Without repeating the history, Black Income brings a new dimension and a new level of the genre! The Debut album ‘Noise Pollution’ tells the story of a world in chaos, where everybody knows best and doesn't listen to each other. A World where shouting out your own views and opinions while being deaf to other people – That’s Noise Pollution! The lyrics are about the massive impact the social media has on us and about the materialistic world we all are a part of. It’s about true feelings of love and hate. After some years of touring with their latest album “NOISE POLLUTION”, in 2017, the band once again has entered the legendary Medley Studio in Copenhagen with Soren Andersen and started recording their second album, to be released summer 2018. Now the first single and video “Feels Like A Storm” is released the 10’th of November 2017, and after that, there is even more to come. As the name of the band suggests, there's an undercurrent of sarcasm and black humor in their brand of hard rock, as demonstrated by Noise Pollution, their debut LP from 2016.
