Ramrock Red Records are incredibly excited to present Kameelah Waheed – straight outta New Jersey. Brought to their attention by London DJ/promoter, Barry King, Kameelah immediately delighted them with her direct, no messin’ delivery, compelling, earworm hooks and beautifully crafted lyrics.

Teaming up with Kelly Murray on co-production on the ‘Original Version’, Kameelah unleashes a stripped back, jazzy hip-hop vibe punctuated with a Donald Byrd’ish trumpet riff. The North Street gang take the Donald Byrd flavour a step further with a full on nod to the Mizzell Brothers in the first North Street West dusty funk production.

Released digitally  April 24th as a five track EP with a further 7” vinyl release around May/June, ‘Holding On’ is set to tick a lot of musical heads boxes.

Growing up in an Islamic household, sneaking snippets of worldly music into her household was close to pulling off a major heist during Kameelah’s teenage years.

Kameelah was introduced to the world of sound from MTV, rap and house music and the live bands of the 80’s courtesy of her older sister, along with tribal and island music that her mother played. Kameelah was encouraged to consider song writing as a career option when she received an opportunity to write for Bunny Sigler of Philadelphia International Records.

Heading up the hip-hop rock band band, Gov’t Cheaze in 2000, Kameelah performed at Philadelphia’s Black Lily Film Festival as well as a set at the very first Roots Picnic. Previous releases have included ‘Traveling’ by Kameelah Waheed & GC, produced by Larry Gold, featured on the ‘Beat Generation Compilation’ released on BBE, making the Top 10 Most Played on UK urban radio stations. In 2011,

Kameelah Waheed and Government Cheaze signed with indie label, Philly Through My Ear (PTME) founded by Will Smith Sr. The self-titled CD can be found on iTunes

Get Some Peace Of Mind From The Ghostly Beard

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from the Ghostly Beard and perhaps it’s times like these, in isolation, that inspire us to share, write about and explore what we’re doing and who we are.

It seems there are many of us are feeling vulnerable, lost and question what life is all about and those who come and go, but we all deserve some peace of mind. 

Ghostly Beards latest song, ‘Peace Of Mind’ is exactly that. The lyrics reflected by the times in one’s life which don’t seem to be improving, hoping the warmth of the sun shining on your face will make it right. 

Artists, singer, songwriters, soul searching to find themselves in normal times just to reach out and find someone who is willing to just listen and Ghostly Beard isn’t alone on this one. 

I know in recent studies taken place in Australia, the most vulnerable to low mood and depression are those in the arts industry, and in these horrid times of isolation and quarantine, daily news on the lonely topic of Covid 19, we can’t deny, is having a huge impact on us all. 

‘Peace Of Mind’ is a song obviously written from the heart and one in which I take my hat off too. It’s a song of questions and hope in amongst the darkness and a reminder, that we are not alone. Good one Ghost! 

‘Peace Of Mind’ is released today 15th April

Female Fronted Rock Queens, High Grass Smashing New Single, Tonight

After forming in Cuba, now based in Los Angeles, alt-rock outfit High Grass write ambitious and frank songs about relationships and day to day life with darker, more introspective undertones. Inspired to empower the next generation, their latest single ‘Tonight’  hopes to motivate people to be true to themselves and to always follow their dreams.

Originally from Moscow, Russia, High Grass’ front woman Kristina Miranda moved to Cuba in 2010, joining forces with Marciel in 2012, where High Grasswas born. With Cuba being an isolated country, with hardly any internet until 2015, there was a time that Rock and Roll music was banned and could only be found in the underground scene. Despite limited resources, High Grass recorded their music in their bedroom’s. Rock is still known in Cuba for its rebel expression, which is why High Grass create music to bring attention to the struggles that people experience living there.

 

It wasn’t long before they started making quite a name for themselves over in Cuba, collecting nominations for The Best Rock Band of Cuba at the “Cuerda Viva” and performing at Havana World Music Festival (2015). It was in that period that High Grass captured the attention of multi-Grammy producer Jacquire King and talented artist, Christian Paschall (Maren Morris’ drummer) who were the first influential figures in the industry to grasp the potential in the band. Since then, High Grass have collaborated with them on several future releases.

 

When speaking more on ‘Tonight’, High Grass’ lead vocalist Kristina explained 

“We wrote the song “Tonight” back in Cuba in 2012. This song is about finding your path and being true to yourself. It was inspired by my decision to move from Moscow to Havana, where Marciel and I met and started the band. It was hard to leave my family and friends, but this decision has totally changed my life. I have no idea what it would be like if I hadn’t made this choice, and believe it is essential to follow your instincts to find yourself”.

 

High Grass are currently nearing the official release of their EP, which will contain 5 tracks, written and recorded by the band back in Cuba.

Teenage Indie Artist Aut Ratchaphom A Natural Talent

Aut Ratchaphom


Aut Ratchaphom is an 18 years old Thai-Australian singer-songwriter and an independent pop artist.

When he was almost 13, Ratchaphom became a big fan of Taylor Swift. Then 4 years later, Swift’s music, songwriting and musical talents inspired him to play guitar/piano and become a singer-songwriter like her.

Aut’s music and songwriting have always been inspired by the main pop artists such as Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran and many more. On 29th of February 2020, Ratchaphom released his debut and a self-written album ‘LeadOFF’ on the major streaming services.

 Teenage Indie Artist Aut Ratchaphom A Natural TalentIndie Artist Teen Talksreams Of Playing at the Greek Theatre

MT: Who are some of your musical influences? When did you know music was your calling and when did you figure out why you needed to pursue music as your career?

Aut: My musical influences is Pop, rock, country and a little bit of R/B. I’m always interested in music since I was a kid, but for some reason I hate the ideas of becoming a musician, because my dad’s family side are all musicians maybe that’s why I don’t want to become one and wanted to do something different. However, things started to change when I was 15 almost 16 when my bestie who was in school’s music specialist program heard me singing and asked me whether I would want to join the program and be a singer for his band. I said yes because why not. Later, I began to sing seriously, took some singing lessons and started to play guitar which later it got me to write songs. The more songs that wrote the more I realised that this is something that I specialise at and not many people can do it. Plus, it’s something I enjoy doing it the most. Music for me right now is already part of my life and I just can’t do anything without thinking about it. I wanna perform in a big stadium and have millions of fan enjoyed my music as much as I do. Also, I want to sing, write a song/s and perform with my idol Taylor Swift. So yeah that’s the brief story of my life in music.

 

MT: Who do you enjoy listening to as a fan?

Aut: Definitely Taylor Swift. The one and only artist that got me started to sing and write songs.

 

MT: When did you first record and step into a studio and how did you feel?

Aut: My first time that I first recorded was in February 2019. It was for my first song that I released ‘Move On’. It was done in school studio, but somehow I felt really excited to the facts that after I finished recording the song I will finally have at least a song to put out for the whole world to hear.

 

MT: Do you write your own songs? How did you discover the art of writing songs?

Aut: Definitely I write my own songs and it’s something that I’m really good at. I write songs base on my love experience, my past romance, sometimes by movie that I watched or other people story. I actually got forced to write a song when I was in music program for my final assignment. Which later got me to continue writing it from then.

 

MT: Can you explain a little bit about your song-writing process?

Aut: I find my song writing process is really easy though. It’s also really depend on a song, but mostly I always got the song titles first and begin to play some random guitar chords and sing some random melodies at the same times with a specific word that I was thinking of at the moment. When I feel that it’s something I was looking for or accidentally sing out some cool melodies then I started to put the lyrics in it.

 

Indie Artist

MT: You have just released your debut album, ‘LeadOFF’, can you tell us what this album is about and do you have a favourite song? 

Aut: I hope you enjoy the album. Well, I didn’t come up with the ideas for LeadOFF at first until I wrote ‘Don’t Worry About Me’ and ‘All You Ever Do Is Let Me Down’, because these two songs described how’s I was being attacked by some people whose telling me that music isn’t the right choice for me and I won’t make it to wherever I wanna be. So, I was like well this is such a great theme for my first album. I was gonna name it Origin but on the same day my favourite band Imagine Dragons announced the name for their upcoming album and it said Origin and I was like No I have to change the name and I found a new name for it which is LeadOFF. My initial thought was damn it’s such a cool name and nobody got this name on their album yet. The reason why I picked LeadOFF is because I believe that this album will lead me off to some where in music industry either soon or later but definitely somewhere in the industry which later will land me into the place that I dreamt to be. You can’t start off the football game without a kickoff, the plane won’t fly if it didn’t take off and my journey in-music won’t start until LeadOFF. My favourite song on the album is Cruel Summer, because it got the whole 80s vibe in it and I’m a big fan of 80s music. I planned to make a whole 80s album for my fifth Studio Album, because you know I need to bring back some OLD SCHOOL vibe back for the world to hear.

 

MT: Who produced the album and where was it recorded? What did you learn from recording your first album?

Aut: The producers that assisted me to produced this album are: Renea Moso (11 Songs), Thomas Crogan (Move On), Chanon Paopatimakorn (Slow Motion). It was all record at home except for Slow Motion and Move On, they were recording at the school studio. There are many things that I’ve learned from it, but one main thing is I learned how use my vocal, learned how to sing on key and time and got to say after I finished recording the album my vocal has been improved so much.

 

MT: What has been your biggest challenge in your music career so far? How did you overcome that obstacle?

Aut: Only obstacle is the money. I don’t have anyone sponsor me, because I’m an Independent artist at the moment. I got no label to support me. So, what do is I worked at the restaurant to earn the money so that I have the money to pay for music production. Everyday I keep telling myself that I have to do it for music and of course many time I cry and many times I was thinking about giving up, because I was so tired working there, but if I don’t work I won’t have the money to make music. That’s how I overcome it by stay positive, stay passionate and stay inspiring.

 

MT: From what you have learned about your challenges in the music business so far and what advice would you like to give upcoming young independent artists?

Aut: I’m just gonna tell them to keep passionate about it, don’t give up, stay inspiring and keep it going.

 

MT:   Besides singing, do you play any musical instruments? How long have you been playing them?

Aut: I play guitar and piano when I was 15. I picked them up the same time when I started to sing seriously.

 

MT: What’s a typical day for you? Do you work on your music every day? What other activities or hobbies besides music do you like to do that your fans may like to know about?

Aut: Well, I finished writing my second album now and finished writing the draft for my third album already. Right now I’m just doing some side projects like writing some droplet songs that won’t be on any album and do some research on music industry.

 

MT: Have you performed live? Are there plans for any live shows after our lockdowns?

Aut: I had and I was planning to do some gigs but it’s all canceled because of corona.

 

MT: Thank you so much for your time Aut, I really appreciate it and all the very best

Indie Rockers Gaspar Sanz New Song Inspired by Cheryl the Cat

‘Cheryl’ is the first single for 2020 from Sydney indie-rockers Gaspar Sanz. Known for their energy and infectious sense of play, the band’s newest song draws inspiration from an unlikely source.

“This song was inspired by a cat called Cheryl who used to live with Jimmy (singer) and Sammy (drummer). Cheryl was a stray who was living on the roof of our other flatmate’s previous residence and after a period of time, he ended up adopting her. She was very old and had a litany of health issues, but was a beautiful and gentle old soul, who had clearly seen some shit. The meows that are featured in the song are from Cheryl herself. Jimmy followed her around the apartment with a microphone for about half an hour to capture them.”

Despite the simplicity of the song’s namesake, the lyrics delve deeper, exploring the parables between human relationships and those we have with feline companions.

“Cats are extremely complicated and difficult. Loving anyone, in any capacity, is never unconditional or uncomplicated, it requires constant attention and comprise, much like a relationship with a feline.”

 

‘Cheryl’ was recorded at Golden Retriever Studios in Marrickville with producer Oscar Dawson.

Cannon’s Conversations is Perfect Concoction of Organic Meets Digital

Cannon is a 21-year-old independent artist from South Carolina who blends strong hip/hop and R&B influences with an organic sound he developed at open mic nights with an old acoustic guitar.
 
“Conversations” is about ignoring our personal issues for the sake of feeling like we don’t have them. It’s easier to turn to quick tricks to feel better or ignore feeling bad entirely than to really consider and engage with how we feel. There’s a really important difference between talking and having a conversation, whether it’s with ourselves or with others—and this song is emphasizing that difference. It’s easy to talk, but it’s hard to really engage with something enough to actually have a conversation. “Conversations” shows someone not engaging — they tell themselves they’re trying but they’re not really. They’re lying

Morgan Joanel Shares a Slice of Seductive Alt-Pop with New Single ‘Disappear’


Icon The Great is Back For More with Tripper Remix

Alternative Pop Artist

Fuelled by self-belief and a passion that itself is fuelled by talent and hard work, Morgan Joanel is steadily building a creative empire that spans beyond her native art-form of music into visual and wearable art. An unbridled spirit, Morgan has been a creative force for the last decade Australia-wide and beyond, recently returning to her hometown of Perth to create her latest music release. Whilst her ride from independent to major label artist and back again has been a rollercoaster of big dreams and stifled creativity, the highs and lows have only strengthened her resolve and lifted her game to a world-class standard. Specialising in seductive alt-pop songs, this energy abounds on Morgan’s latest single,  Disappear – marking the highest point of her storied music career.

 

Blessed with a smoky, honey-toned voice, Morgan’s music has always had an alluring quality, highlighted especially in her evocative live performances where live looping of layered harmonies, beats and guitars showcase her musical abilities. From a creatively frustrating experience signed to the world’s largest major label to the freedom and artistic limitlessness of her own independence, Morgan is merging both music and art into a multi-dimensional vision. The concept: a 5 track EP with visual artworks to expand on the music; was funded entirely by her widespread fanbase through a hugely successful Kickstarter.

Whether singing, songwriting, or creating artworks; her natural curiosity and strong worth ethic has always been at the centre of Morgan’s successes, and indeed her happiness. If the excellent standard of her work can be attributed to anything, it is this. Sometimes though, it is a bolt of lightning sent and received without effort or intervention. Lead single Disappear, as the perfect example, was written in 15 minutes… coming completely naturally as if to say the song wrote itself. Ending a bout of writer’s block, Disappear came just days before Morgan was scheduled to enter the studio, and was a much welcome sign of good things to come.

 

From traversing the USA working with Grammy-nominated producers, to hunkering down in Perth’s Blackbird Studios with the esteemed team of Adrian Breakspear (Gang Of Youths) and Dave Parkin (Tired Lion, Abbe May) Morgan has experienced more of the music industry than most. Building on her live sound of intricate loops and rich husky vocal hooks, Disappear is undoubtedly the right move for Morgan as she proves herself the talent so many others have heralded her to be.

Alternative Rock Three Piece Seven Spies Release Debut Single

Alternative Rock Three Piece Seven Spies Release Debut Single

Formed in London by childhood friends, Seven Spies are a three-piece band looking to infiltrate the ears of the world. Consisting of David Blomiley (vocals, guitar, piano), Olly Brown (drums, backing vocals) and an ever-rotating bassist taking form of old band members and musical friends, you can expect to witness a healthy dose of melodic riffs and anthemic choruses.   

 

Seven Spies fuses the best of rock bands such as Muse and Radiohead, while highlighting vocals reminiscent of Jeff Buckley and Bjork. Billie Eilish’s use of intimate multi-tracking also makes an appearance throughout their music, along with the big riffs and fuzzy guitars of Rage Against the Machine and Jack White. This amalgam of diverse artists and influences, allows Seven Spies to carve out a pocket of sound that is entirely their own. 

 

Their highly anticipated debut single “Chameleon” narrates the different faces, personas and behaviour we put on to negotiate our daily lives in different situations and the pressure people place on themselves to hide their struggles and internal demons to the outside world. Sonically the chorus shows a defiance against these pressures, external and internal, saying in the end they won’t overwhelm or control who or how we want to be. Blomiley confides, “The subject of the songs seems to be stuff that has been bubbling away inside of me for a while that I need to get out. I find song writing massively therapeutic in a way.”

 

Self-produced by Blomiley and Brown in their bedroom studio and mastered by John Davis (The Killers, Lana del Rey, Royal Blood, Lewis Capaldi, Gorillaz) at Metropolis Studios, “Chameleon” delivers an intimate, yet polished result. Featuring gritty, raucous guitars, tenacious melodies and textured harmonies, showcasing Blomiley’s impressive vocals, “Chameleon” is an energetic release, bursting with both conviction and charisma.  

 

With the hope their music may connect with listeners, allowing them to make their own relationship and associations, regardless of the intention or creation, Seven Spies are unleashing their explosive sound.

Remarkable Indie Pop New Music and Live Stream from Gaudion


Icon The Great is Back For More with Tripper Remix

Australian Indie Pop Artist

Remarkable Indie Pop New Music and Live Stream from Gaudion

Newcomer Gaudion has today announced his clever, indie pop single TV Shows, a wistful reflection upon love and loss written during a period of deep change and development for the artist, out now.  Gaudion has also revealed a sweet, adventurous video to accompany the track, directed by Guido Pezz. 

In light of COVID-19, Gaudion is unable to perform regular gigs – so to celebrate the release of TV Shows he has announced two YouTube/Instagram live stream performances on

April 2 at 7.30PM AEST, and

April 30 at 7.30PM AEST.

TV Shows is one for fans of guitar pop and brilliant Australian songwriting.  Evocative of Dean Lewis, Ziggy Alberts, and Ben Howard, TV Shows would feel at home on the soundtrack for a coming of age romantic film, or perhaps it’s that track that you’ll play over and over on your next summer roadtrip. 

Catchy and affecting, this song features Gaudion’s lovely vocal performance front and centre.  Speaking on the inspiration behind the track, Gaudion explains,

“TV Shows is a small part of my life.  I began writing the tune when I was working on a small farm in a rural area in Canada’s Saskatchewan.  In this place I was turbulent.  I never knew what I wanted to do.  So I taught myself to play guitar and sing inside a grain silo every day after work.  I was also going through a difficult stage of adolesence; through this song I was aiming to express my current feelings with music.  Every time I’d think of the things I was going through I’d write a little bit more of the song.  It’s not the first song I ever wrote, and definitely not the last, but it holds a long journey of my emotions, my memories and my thoughts.

 

The film clip for TV Shows is open to interpretation, allowing the audience to incorporate their own meaning into the clip, which is a very special feeling.  The video follows the story of a couple who part, while Gaudion watches on on a television set.   The performance is serene, indicating a sense of acceptance of life’s inherent challenges and curveballs.  Speaking on the clip, Gaudion enthuses, “The music video for TV Shows has been one of the funnest journeys ever.  Guido Pezz is a fantastic director, new mate of mine and creative genius.  It’s literally a video of me watching TV Shows which follow the emotions of the music.  I’m very happy with the process, the beautiful actors we worked with and laughs we had along the way.”

 

Although disappointed that he won’t be able to perform in person for the foreseeable future, Gaudion is excited to present two intimate performances via livestream, as he says,  “All we have seen happen to the world over the past months due to COVID-19 has been devastating.  In our industry, all shows have been cancelled, jobs have been lost and artists are genuinely scared of the carryover effects that this virus will have.  I feel the need to keep moving forward and I’m also in a position to brighten peoples’ days through sharing my music, so I feel very fortunate.  I am excited to be performing two Youtube livestream performances to celebrate the release of this song.”

 

Talented in more ways than one, Gaudion is a keen carpenter, and even made his own guitar, as he says,

I love building and creating things with my hands, I find it very rewarding and exciting.  A few years back I built an acoustic guitar from scratch. She’s a medium sized dreadnaught made from Tasmanian blackwood (back and sides), sitka spruce (top), mahogany (neck) and Indian rosewood (features). Her name is Grace, and I play her every day!  Everything happens for a reason, and after building this guitar I became a lot more interested in playing.”

Highway Solos Musicians Unite for Italy’s Covid 19 Disaster


 

 

 

 

 

 

Highway Solos Musicians Unite for Italy’s Covid 19 Disaster

Covid 19 Fundraiser

 

 

We have always thought that music unites.

In every area, in every genre, in every situation, Music is inspiration, Music has the power to raise us above human events, Music gives wings to our hopes …
And the hope is what we all hold on to today, so that we can return to our lives as soon as possible and defeat this health emergency that is upsetting and destroying our lives.


But to do this, there is also a need for the desire and commitment of each of us, because only all together we are strong, united and we can fight and win.


With “HIGHWAY SOLOS”, Elevate Records wanted to engage in a beneficial project with some of the best Italian musicians, physically divided but spiritually united and connected to each other, in a song that is an imaginary journey along one of the hundred highways that connect our wonderful country .
Today more than ever, we gather around those who are indomitable in trying to save lives, amid a thousand difficulties and lack of tools and means to deal with this pandemic in an adequate way; for this reason all the musicians involved in “HIGHWAY SOLOS” propose to raise funds in favor of the SACCO hospital in Milan,ITALY,  committed to the forefront of the virus emergency, by purchasing the piece that bears its name for this project on the digital stores and through the company.


This massive collaboration, in which each person involved gave their contribution completely free of charge, was carried out in a very short time in order to be able to contribute as quickly as possible to face a terrible and unexpected danger.


Through this passage you will be able to carve out an emotional space in which to travel, in which to feel only positive vibrations, in which to perceive that united you can really make a difference in a moment when you need one another, even from a distance.


UNITED, TO MAKE THE DIFFERENCE.

 

Musicians in order of appearance:

Stefano Sebo Xotta
Nicola Denti
Simone Gianlorenzi
Luca Colombo
Matteo Brigo
Fabrizio Bicio Leo-Bis
Marco Sfogli
DANIELE GOTTARDO
Francesco Corapi
Andy Martongelli
Mistheria (keyboards )
Roberto Fasciani(bass)
Valerio Lucantoni

(drums

The realization of the song, from video to audio, was carried out completely remotely, each in its isolation due to the quarantine, but the result shows that it is possible to stay united and make projects even with the strength of volotà and desire to do and be together.

 

DONATE – GO FUND ME: https://www.gofundme.com/f/highway-solos-raccolta-fondi

Or via the video description on YouTube you can find other ways to donate, what you can, from financial help to a simple word of mouth.

In Italy in this period we say : ANDRA TUTTO BENE  (Everything will be fine)

We are united, Fight The Virus

 

Project conceived and coordinated by:
Francesco Corapi  (chitarrista, compositore, speaker Radiofonico, collaboratore  www.metal.it)
Guglielmo Malusardi Tinti (giornalista musicale, esperto di chitarrismo )
con la collaborazione di
Mauro Matteucci  (Elevate Records, produzione, mix, master)
Pino Magliani (Elevate Records, speaker radiofonico )
Gianluca “Graz” Grazioli (caporedattore www.metal.it)

Blue Child Collective Releases Golden New Single


Icon The Great is Back For More with Tripper Remix

Indie Folk Music

Recently crowned West Australian Music’s Best Regional Act for 2019, Margaret River’s conscious roots collab Blue Child Collective has powered into 2020 with their mesmerising new single  Golden .

Following on from the group’s third documentary The Art Of Sound last November and a solid cycle of touring for album  Wake Up to the Sound that included widespread airplay, Golden is the first taste from their fifth long player due out later this year.

Written on a Mt Maunganui sunrise while on tour in New Zealand, Golden sees Blue Child Collective exploring new sounds, blending elements of indie-folk and roots to produce a track in a similar vein to Crosses by Jose Gonzalez and Bon Iver’s Holocene. Featuring a solid percussion bed, baritone vocals and a group singalong of “Harmony with everything, harmony, we all can sing in.”, it’s arguably BCC at their finest.

With WA and New Zealand dates to kick off live activity, band leader and director of The West Australian Guitar Festival Dan White elaborates ” I’m really excited for the year ahead; it feels like all the work we’ve been putting into touring to connect with our audience and the huge focus we’ve put on content creation in order to continue delivering quality and quantity to those fans over the last five years is coming together. There’s plenty in the pipeline for 2020.”

Plug in, connect and get involved: Blue Child Collective is more than a band, but a movement which is fast becoming a major catalyst for positive change on a global scale towards a ‘Culture Of Connection’.

Genre-Bending Funky Groove from Strangely Enough is Long Time Coming


Icon The Great is Back For More with Tripper Remix

Indie Artist

Strangely Enough are returning in their genre-bending fashion, comprised of soaring vocals, polyrhythmic synths, rubbery funk bass-lines and solid grooves. 

‘Long Time Coming’  is the third single from Strangely Enough and is the first taste of the band’s debut EP, set to be released in the coming months.

The band’s previous singles, ‘Change’ and ‘Graceville’ have seen support from MTV AustraliaTriple JHappy MagScenestrAAA Backstage and community radio across Australia.

Now, this new, lively track opens with glistening keys accentuating the upbeat as Greg Olley’s powerful vocal range gently propels the song forward before dropping into a downtempo, funk groove.

The layers of skanking guitar, funkalicious bass-lines, thumping drum-fills and the myriad of electronic tones work together to emphasize every down and up-beat. Olley’s graciously-sweet vocal tones and erupting cries have room to soar above the vibing beats and electronic-funk, collectively making it a compelling, body moving tune.

Olley explains the meaning behind the single:

“‘Long Time Coming’ is about how we define ourselves with a series of snapshots of our lives. A graduation, a wedding, a holiday; this is sometimes how we construct an idea of who we are or used to be. Sometimes though these snapshots hide that we are constantly on the move, passing on to something else and yet still the same person.”

For the release of the single, Strangely Enough were going to be performing MelbourneBrisbaneBallarat and the Gold Coast in April – these have now bee postponed due to the COVID-19 crisis.

Crystal Ignite Releases Supercharged Fusion of Rock Electronica


Icon The Great is Back For More with Tripper Remix

Rock Artist

Crystal Ignite makes music supercharged with kinetic emotion. Meshing together the parallel universes of analogue and digital, the Melbourne singer sweeps through the decades, building stadium-sized rock laced with pulsating electronica and deep, heavy grooves. Her debut album Infinite Alchemy (due out later this year) is a lyrical and musical barrage – focused, purposeful and uninhibited – that tells her story in alternating waves of shadow and illumination. Led by searing first single  Black Mamba, it’s as real and honest as music gets.

A true survivor, Crystal has risen from an extreme, life-altering childhood to become the artist she is today: honest, bare-all and fearless. Infinite Alchemy is a both a testament to the adversity she has overcome, and a victory over it. Slicing through the music like shards of broken glass, Crystal’s lyrics are pure bloodletting catharsis. The very moniker of Ignite is symbolic of her ascension from darkness to light, which she has funnelled into Infinite Alchemy. Every part of her love, her aggression, her regret and her optimism have been poured into the album like molten rock.

“The sounds blend light and dark, masculine and feminine, Yin and Yang,” she explains. “Its all about the magic of cosmic alchemy, and acknowledging shadow, which ultimately sees you end up rising higher and creating more light.” 

This echoes throughout Infinite Alchemy, which broadcasts a clear message that Ignite and many other artists know all too well: that a strong and powerful woman will always be a threat to some. Much like its reptilian namesake, the making of single Black Mamba has been a process of shedding skin – of growing beyond the past and into the present.t’s as real and honest as music gets.

Although deeply personal, the album is not just Crystal’s manifesto but a message to all those seeking to find their inner strength: you are the Black Mamba, if you choose to be. Beyond any of her musical achievements, this is Crystal Ignite’s inextinguishable power. She is a warrior.

Impressive New Soul Music from Amanda St John Will Turn Heads


Icon The Great is Back For More with Tripper Remix

Soul Singer Indie Artist

Irish songstress AMANDA ST JOHN releases 2nd studio album The Muscle Shoals Sessions, recorded in the world famous FAME Studios, (USA).

“If Dusty Springfield were alive, she’d say ‘that’s my girl’!”

(Grammy winning US producer Jon Tiven)

In May 2018 Amanda became the 1st independent Irish artist in history to record in FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Following in the footsteps of her musical heroes Aretha Franklin & Etta James she took a huge leap of faith (and financial risk) to record her 2nd studio album in this legendary studio.      

Talking about the experience, Amanda reports      

It is was a dream come true for me and my band members (Paul Tierney and Producer Michael Mormecha) to get the opportunity to record in FAME along with “swampers” bass player David Hood (Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Percy Sledge, Paul Simon, Alicia Keys etc) and piano/keys/hammond player Clayton Ivey (Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Joss Stone, The Supremes etc).   

More about Amanda: 

Amanda St John is a soulful singer-songwriter from Northern Ireland. She is a mainstay on the Irish radio, festival and gig circuit and has been described as a “Head-turning vocalist with serious song writing prowess………a sensational artist” (Visit Dublin). She has worked with artists like Brian Kennedy, Eddi Reader, Mary Coughlan, Gareth Dunlop, Ciaran Gribbin (of INXS) and Jon Tiven (Grammy winning Nashville writer/producer whose CV has included BB King, Van Morrison and The Rolling Stones etc…).

Gaining substantial media interest in Ireland and the UK including extensive airplay on the BBC and RTE as well as reviews in Hot Press Magazine & The Irish Times.

Amanda is known for her passionate and powerful live performances and is fast establishing herself as one of Ireland’s leading vocalists. With live sessions with ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris and Gaby Roslin on BBC Radio London, various other live performances/interviews across BBC regional’s, U105, Downtown/Cool FM, UTV Live Television etc, as well as many festival slots and tours of the UK, Ireland and the USA (which included the prestigious Folk Alliance Festival and a private event for the US President) under her belt, the future is looking very bright indeed for this talented musician. Her debut album “Grow”; was launched in May 2016 at the prestigious Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival in Belfast and has received rave reviews and worldwide airplay including a national advert campaign for The Rio Olympics for the title track ‘Grow’.

On Arvo Party Mix – ‘Made Myself a Name’ is an upbeat song about the struggles of trying to make it as a singer. I wanted a quirkier, more 70’s Tom Waits vibe on this one and thought a remix might be a good option to make it stand stronger as a single. I’m a big fan of collaborating and had wanted to work with Arvo Party for a while so thought it would be a good opportunity to see what he could bring to this track. I totally love what he’s done with it, he’s brought the song to a whole new level!
