We have added an artist to our signed rostra! We are excited (and just a little bit proud) to welcome Bournemouth singer-songwriter George Croucher to our line-up. Expect music releases, gigs and plenty of extras from this quarter. For now, get acquainted over on his socials, have a poke around, see what it’s all about.
Podcast: Seas And Resurgence
Among big news from our artists, we head westwards this August with two tracks from across the Atlantic: Canada’s Tarik Robinson brings his single Everyday while California-based Kiavi shares his new piece Reflection. Back on home shores, an old friend is being re-invented as Last Man Alive - we play his debut single Lucky Stars.
Last Man Alive
Once the frontman of midlands band Mighty Shabba (Dec edition, 2018), Neil Smith has risen from the pandemic as Last Man Alive. Lucky Stars is a compelling and promising first taste of this new project - more heartfelt and rousing than the old discography and, whereas the older songs sounded like arena pieces, this sounds like he’s snuck onto a stage after-hours and is pumping his heart out - and we’ve suck in on him doing it.
Hailing from Calgary, Canada, Tarik Robinson (aka Teekay) not only has a timeless face but lungs of steel. The impressive stream of lyrics coming out of Everyday paint a picture of sweat, toil and patience in the world’s most competitive industry. It’s a contemplative sort of rap that showcases the breadth and flexibility of the art form and, to make it all the better, he has a whole album Rotations on the way.
Kiavi’s Reflection opens with a musing sort of cascade, like an electric zen waterfall bouncing on rocks. What follows is an evocative and dreamy brass-tinged meander, the first public offering of California-based artist Kiavi. Originally from Italy (hence Kiavi - Italian for keys), this is the lead track from the EP coming later in the year.
