Ex-pat harpist, Julia Mascetti is making quite a name for herself in her adopted home of Tokyo. Combining a very British style of folk and singer-songwriter sensibilities with traditional Japanese musical accompaniment: this live rendition of the lead track from her forthcoming EP, “In Distance, Everything is Poetry” shows her dark, spooky side in a unique setting.

Mark L. Oakes releases the video for ‘Shredded Jeans’

Mark L. Oakes has recently dropped the new video for his single ‘Shredded Jeans’ that is taken from his latest album, Call Me The Moon.

The Belgian singer-songwriter’s relaxed folky style is perfectly accompanied by the emotive black and white visuals of the video. We see Mark playing his guitar in baron, winter landscapes that evoke a sense of desolation and loneliness, yet this fits in with how Oakes describes his album as the ideal soundtrack for a ‘karmic road trip’.

Mainly tracked at Mark’s home studio in the heart of the Ardennes, the record has been finalised with the help of Londoner cellist Ben Trigg and mastered by Grammy award winner Gavin Lurssen in Los Angeles.

Glenn Harrold: ‘The Wayfarer’

For lovers of easy-listening, folk style music, make sure to check out ‘The Wayfarer’ by Glenn Harrold.

Harrold is also a well renowned hypnotherapist and self-help author who has sold millions of copies all over the world, but now he has employed his other talent of songwriting.

With the strong and meaningful story of the Peace Pilgrim behind the beautiful music of ‘The Wayfarer’, Glenn has a potent combination for his diversion into the world of music. ‘The Wayfarer’ also features the soft and pure vocals of Dean Rhymes, whose voice takes you on a journey of its own.

The video documents the remarkable story of Mildred Lisette Norman, otherwise known as the ‘Peace Pilgrim’, who walked across America at least 8 times in the name of world peace. With some wonderful historical footage and of course, Glenn’s well-crafted musicianship, ‘The Wayfarer’ is certainly worth a watch, and a listen.

‘Never Start’ by Middle Kids

The new video from Middle Kids for their upbeat single ‘Never Start’ is definitely one to watch.

With an edgy black and white 1960s new-wave film vibe and tons of flashing lights, there is a great concept behind the video, directed by Emile Freeman.

The Sydney, Australia, based trio made waves across the world with their last release, ‘Edge of Town’ and they’ll be hoping to do the same with ‘Never Start’.

Worth a listen for those who like their folky-indie-rock!

 

Corinna Jane – Three Faces Of You (Live)

Franco-British singer-songwriter Corinna Jane brings back the ethos of old school pop music with her new single ‘Three Faces Of You’ taken from her upcoming EP ‘Hard In Love’.

Fed on a diet of 90s MTV, Corinna had a passion for music from a young age. By the age of five she had taken up piano and singing lessons, soon composing her own music and establishing herself as a sing-songwriter in her teens.

Corinna has never been afraid of being herself, crafting her own unique brand of piano driven alternative rock. The keen actress, model and radio presenter has a quirky style and personality, which has led to her receiving airplay on the likes of BBC Radio 6, Amazing Radio and BBC Introducing and making the top 5 solo artists at the Rock The House Competition.

‘Three Faces Of You’ follows the fascinating story of Corinna’s relationship with someone who lived in their own fantasy world with various personalities residing in him. The feisty song is mirrored in Corinna Jane and her band’s performance, which has strong resemblance of the powerhouse of Fleetwood Mac and No Doubt.

Having supported Leddra Chapman and been a guest vocalist/co-writer with German DJ Mark-Oh, it’s clear Corinna is ready to take the music industry by storm.

Yeti Love want to take you down their ‘Lonely Road’ with new single

Single release date set for June 15th

Named thanks to enduring love/fear of the vaunted mythical creature, Yeti Love is the musical moniker of songwriters Peter Hamilton and Dave Sears – a folk duo who view the genre as this generation’s punk music, able to articulate about issues and press all the right buttons in all the wrong places.

Hamilton is also influenced by his own ancestry, being half Spanish and, at a young age, falling in love with the folk traditions of home town Galicia. Having started out as a drummer before finding his own musical horizons, his love of rhythm was informed by this specific branch of celtic roots music. Married to Sears’ intricate, multi-instrumental approach, the result is a hybrid sound unlike any other act on the circuit today.

New single, ‘Lonely Road’, is set for release on June 15th, and you can hear it here.

The pair have labelled their unique combination as ‘alt-rogue-folk-rock’, which is as fitting a description as any. Based in South London, they have been playing together since 2012 and ‘Lonely Road’ is the latest fruit of their labours.

In the years since their foundation, Yeti Love have been slowly building in following an momentum thanks to their thoughtful songwriting and eye catching live show, which has earned them some great online press for their work up until this point. The buzz is building, and in ‘Lonely Road’ they have the right vehicle to continue on that journey.

The single will be available from June 15th.

Sandy Kilpatrick single ‘Your Love is a Weapon’ to be taken from album ‘The Shaman’s Call’

PRimage

Scottish singer-songwriter set to unveil new album on June 15th

An acoustic-folk singer-songwriter, Sandy Kilpatrick is now Portugal based having been born and raised in Scotland. His new album, ‘The Shaman’s Call’, is the latest stunning release in a career that has grown organically over time, with his sound echoing great songwriters as wide ranging as David Bowie and Damien Rice, while retaining his own unique take on the genre.

Those developing years have been spent surrounded by talents who have made it to the mainstream, such as close friend and New Order guitarist Phil Cunningham. Now Sandy Kilpatrick aims to follow in their footsteps.

Having lived in various parts of the UK before moving to Portugal to be with his family, Sandy Kilpatrick’s particular brand of accessible folk music has a well-travelled feel to it. Inspired by a wide ranging exploration of all of life’s experience as seen through Sandy Kilpatrick’s eyes as a writer, Sandy’s last album ‘Redemption Road’ was notable enough to gain the support of key BBC tastemakers Guy Garvey and Mark Radcliffe. One track was even used by footballer Cristiano Ronaldo on his ‘Best Bits of 2013’ video.

‘The Shaman’s Call’ marks further progression for Sandy Kilpatrick as an artist, guided out of the gate by new single ‘Your Love Is a Weapon’, a song which focuses on the intimacy and solitude of the writer at work: https://soundcloud.com/sandykilpatrick/your-love-is-a-weapon

 

Like this track, the album as a whole is designed to feel raw, and not hidden behind the smoke and mirrors of big production. The lyrics are intimate and thoughtful, hitting many highs, lows and moments of heartfelt poignancy – many of which listeners will immediately relate to.
