"what strikes me immediately is his raw but high and very unique vocal sound"

 

Introduction:

Chris Taylor has been songwriting for many years, both alone and in collaboration with other musicians and friends. It is as a soloist (guitar and vocals) that he currently gigs most of the time but he also has a band to add that extra color as and when required. Having been a professional musician in his 20’s, in 2011 Chris had the opportunity to once again play professionally. Chris is able to give more time to his real passion for writing and performing his own songs. His EP 'Chasing rainbows' was released at the beginning of last year and was awarded the Akademia Music Award for Best Pop Rock EP in February 2016. ‘Meet me on the horizon’ won the Akademia Music Award for best Pop/Folk song in May 2016. ‘How beautiful you are’ won the Akademia Music Award for best Folk/Pop song in August 2016. These two tracks feature on his latest EP. The new EP, ‘Meet me on the horizon’ was released on 31 March and features his latest single ‘How Beautiful you are’. This has already been aired on a number of stations including BBC Introducing.

"lovely hard drums and guitar sounds, then I hear magnificent vocal sounds which beautiful high and low notes"

Introduction:

We're a rock band named OneManRevivel from the Northeast of England, UK

Forming only in the Winter of 2012; the band have already traveled a path that has
taken them from the depths of a broken city to the top of their game as songwriters, producers, philanthropists and ultimately, believers.
By aligning their unwavering dedication to the do-it-yourself work ethic with a signature sound, singer/guitarist Andy Hanlon, bassist Kyle Smith and drummer Wayne Glaister help to define the landscape of today’s rock music scene. Blending moderate rock, with subtle ambiance and a bitter/sweet take on life, they launch themselves on unsuspecting gig goers with their highly energetic, and often-explosive live shows. One Man Revival have just released their debut album after a fan reach request gave them enough funds that they needed to do the whole process independently. Alongside the recording, the band is hoping to add to a relentless show schedule that they have had over the last 3 years.

"She has a  hypnotic vocal, which sound very unique. At the first note, I am a fan she can sing very good. The song has great uptempo dance beats in it, and very rhythmic"

Introduction:
JAAYNS is an independent singer/songwriter and Electronic artist from Leeds. read my review on chatsong, listen to their recently released single "go"

I am an independent singer/songwriter and Electronic artist from Leeds. I love music and creating songs and started properly learning how to songwrite properly through various classes/course and retreats about 6 years ago. I started writing songs for other people which I still really love. Last year I was encouraged to put my own music out, if I did I wanted to write something different and create my own art in my music and through the production. This has resulted in my first EP out Summer 2017 - The EP is called Bright White Yellow. The songs on the EP link together starting with the first single GO released 3rd March.
I've been lucky to work with some fantastic cowriters and Leeds Producer Song Mason. The whole aim has been to create something melodic and different to take
advantage of being in a time where there isn't any rules or restrictions on what music you can put out for the world to hear.

Introduction:

Elephant State

we have recently signed a deal with Pink Dolphin Records Ltd in the Uk ,we have signed 2 of our tracks, "Heritage" and "Elephantasia" 

 

REM_3701-Echo-01.jpg


Formed in 2014 by Cosmo Masiello; guitar, programming, recording, mixing and mastering and Gabriele Carbone; keyboards & programming.
Originally created as a Live EDM Music Set, that will work comfortably, both in small venues clubs and also on larger stages as openers for DJ Sets, Raves, and live concerts, the project has now evolved into something decisively more interesting, aiming to take Dance music to another level, both live and in the studio.
These two professional, top class musicians, both masters of their art and currently active on the Italian music scene as live performers and session musicians, have decided to join forces, resulting in an explosive mix of Rock, Jazz and ethnic styles, painted on an electronic foundation which blends the whole sound into one complete musical work of art.

Each original piece, a masterful and colorful mix of Electronic Music, Dance, House, Deep House, Techno, and Trance, with Jazz and Rock overtones and some Ethnic styles thrown in, is composed and arranged by Carbone/Masiello, into a single and unique canvas bursting with masterfully woven musical sketches that flow with ease into a delta of sound, bringing line, shape, form, colour, texture, light and shadow to even the most critical of musical ears. Elephant State is based in Italy but is willing to travel as far as necessary to promote their sound.

Introduction:

House of Amber is a band created by three producers, brothers Nathan and Tyson Gee and David White. All three attended the same school in the town of Rotherham in South Yorkshire. From the mid 1990s they started their first band together called Krud and cut their teeth on the local music scene. David left to work on the road as a technician and has worked with acts such as Noel Gallagher, Biffy Clyro and Jeff Lynne’s ELO.

Nathan and Tyson continued to hone their vocal and writing skills and Krud eventually matured from a grunge outfit to a more refined and experimental act Leon, with the trademark vocal harmonies of Nathan and Tyson at the forefront and playing shows with bands such as Snow Patrol 
After the dissolution of Leon, Nathan and Tyson reconnected with David who had begun songwriting newer more mature material than their Krud days and Nathan and Tyson’s vocal styles simply slotted into place. Since then the studio project which eventually became House of Amber has grown from strength to strength and has gained many fans worldwide.

In 2012 the debut album Under Pale Stars (as all subsequent releases) was self recorded and released. In 2014 Nathan and Tyson also started a side project called Icarus’s Sons which some material was later used for House of Amber. 2016 saw the single Ride published by US label Moozikoo. In early 2017 the Citadel Smith EP was released by the band with the new track Citadel Smith penned by Tyson and an older track Revo as the B- Side. In 2017 the band also released the single Ghosts on Chairs and re-mixed and remastered the debut album Under Pale Stars with extra track Mars included.

"This singer-songwriter has many high qualities produced songs on both of his albums and it has to be heard around the world"

 

Introduction:

Jay Woodward is an innovator in the indie folk scene, combining modern production techniques with a classic approach to song development and engineering, reminiscent of the 1960's and 70's. Taking the skills he learned during his tenure at the famed Capitol Records in Hollywood, CA, Woodward melds the analog and digital world in his recording process, giving his music a truly unique and timeless feel. "I took everything I learned and said screw it, I'm going to try my best and give this a shot." Woodward recorded his first two albums, "Letters We Told" and "Good Grief" in his home studio in Venice, CA.

Never one to shy away from the uncomfortable, Woodward grasps the business of destruction, grief, tyranny, purity and forgiveness in many of his lyrical concepts. A studio musician at heart, Woodward moved to Knoxville, TN in 2016 to build an ambitious home recording studio from the ground up. "If you want to catch me live, listen to my records because every track is me playing acoustic guitar and vocal all the way through, completely live." He is currently working on his third record in this new creative space.

Introduction:

The band came together when we met Jimmy Sengwaketse, a brilliant talent stuck in Botswana. He kindly played on our CD FJB Band, producing as well. The band was formed by Fred Bridgens who writes most of the material and plays guitar and lead vocal, with Ron Van Wyk on bass and harp and vocals, and Jimmy Sengwaketse on lead guitar and vocals. We have no rules or specific genre, we play the songs as they present themselves, leaving us somewhat surprised at what was intended and the finished product.
