197a66299017301709ecdb48_1240x930

Artist / Band Name – Eric Reid (A Prince)

Latest Release –

Release Date – NOW on soundcloud with his upcoming self titled debut EP out October 21

The Word – Here’s Eric’s own description of what his debut single’s all about…

‘This song was originally going to be called Hedgehogs Dillema which from Wikipedia: is a metaphor about the challenges of human intimacy. It describes a situation in which a group of hedgehogs all seek to become close to one another in order to share heat during cold weather.
However, they cannot avoid hurting one another with their sharp spines. Though they all share the intention of a close reciprocal relationship, this may not occur, for reasons they cannot avoid. I changed the name because I think Hedgehogs Dillema sounds like the name of a song nobody would really want to listen to. Anyway, it sums up most of my relationships. But that is something I’ll figure it out eventually…’
And all that’s set to insanely catchy folk pop. Amazing.

Latest Release –

Release Date – NOW with forthcoming E.P. Love’s release dates expected in the near future

The Word – London singer songwriter who on this latest single buddied up with one of our former NMT’s Max Jury to craft a track that’s got more than a touch of the Ryan Adams about it. What I mean by that is it’s an intimate, delicate and utterly beautiful slice of singer Americana. Defo got me looking forward too the rest of the new E.P.

Artist / Band Name – Leon Inc.

Latest Release –

Release Date – NOW with debut album Insert Disc, to follow in early 2017

The Word – Don’t really do much instrumental stuff on this blog but having heard the electronic beauty that is ‘Microfibre’ I couldn’t not post it. The track’s the debut single from French (obvs) electronic artist Leon Inc. and it’s just wonderful. And that’s all I need to say about it really.

Artist / Band Name – Georgie

Latest Release –

Release Date – 7th Nov

The Word – Well this young Northern lass certainly has soul. And luckily enough for her she also has a voice that’s powerful and distinctive enough to back it up. Although it probs does her individuality a bit of an injustice to compare her to the late, great Amy Winehouse, that’s about as close as you’re gonna get to a reference point in the pop world I reckon.

Artist / Band Name – Jerry Williams

Latest Release –

Release Date – NOW as the title track to Jerry’s latest E.P.

The Word – Another talented young lass up next in the shape of 20 year old Pompey native Jerry Williams. She’s already performed her brand of extremely well crafted, quirky, indie pop at BST Hyde Park with Take That, along with filling support slots for LANY, Barnes Courtney, MAGIC & Nathan Sykes which all should stand her in good stead for her very own current headline tour promoting her latest E.P. which came out friday (30th Sept) and is well worth a listen by the way. She also looks a lot better than Chris Martin on deserted rainy days at the seaside.
