The New Space Finders release their instant Indie hit ‘Superheroes’

The New Space Finders have released their debut single with powers so good you’ll swear they must be ‘Superheroes’. Indie anthem is a title given to few, but greatly deserved by the Indie-electronica duo behind The New Space Finders, Sean and Jenny. 

Sean and Jenny are a Plymouth based couple and  self-proclaimed kind-hearted eccentrics. Their two young children are the inspiration behind the ‘Superheroes’ track, giving the tune a pure, innocent and feel good vibe to ease all your worries. 

‘Superheroes’ is the woe-lifting, feel good track we have all been desperate for, timed perfectly to cure all the stress of a Covid-19 world. Stress which duo Sean and Jenny know all too well, after a health complication left Sean close to death 16 months ago. Recovered and inspired, the non genre conforming duo now value every second spent with their children, sharing their joy through song. 

With artwork featuring a Banksy piece, sanctioned by the mysterious man himself, ‘Superheroes’ is a fun filled track that takes you back to simpler times.

Wordsmith of the week- SAM DOTIA

We’re ecstatic to be bringing you the first instalment of our Wordsmith Weekly feature. A weekly (believe it or not) feature championing some of the best songwriting talents the industry has to offer.  

Our first wordsmith is London’s SAM DOTIA, a soulful singer-songwriter whose lyricism is nothing short of heavenly. DOTIA is by no means confined by the boundaries of genre, dappling in R&B, Folk, Indie, Soul and beyond.

Drawing influence from the likes of Jeff Buckley, Bon Iver and HYUKOH, SAM DOTIA’s music oozes the same quality, authenticity and emotion. DOTIA’s tracks such as ‘Uriah’s Cry’ could effortlessly soundtrack a coming of age film, he is every music supervisor’s dream. 

His most recent release ‘Beautiful Disaster’ is a work of art, a collaboration with the equally talented Rachel Chinouriri. The track is ethereal, infused with soul, feeling and emotion. Truly a beautiful track, and a musical match made in heaven.

Beyonce uses BET accept speech to call for the dismantling of ‘a racist and unequal system’

See Original Article here

Beyonce urged U.S. voters to “take action to dismantle a racist and unequal system” as she accepted the Humanitarian Award at the virtual BET Awards on Sunday night.

The 38-year-old singer was introduced by former U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama, who paid tribute to her philanthropic efforts as well as her musical success.

Following tributes from Tyler Perry and her mother Tina Knowles-Lawson, Beyonce used her speech to encourage fans to vote in the upcoming U.S. election in November in the hopes they can collectively try and change the system.

“I want to dedicate this award to all of my brothers out there, all of my sisters out there inspiring me, marching and fighting for change,” Beyonce said, referencing the Black Lives Matter protests sparked by the death of George Floyd at the hands of police officers. “Your voices are being heard, and you’re proving to our ancestors that their struggles were not in vain.”

Beyonce is the perfect example of using an immense public platform for good, we hope more artists will follow in her footsteps. 

Alicia Keys opens up about life in Lockdown with Swizz Beatz

Original Article

In a sweet seaside Q&A video on the Girl on Fire star’s YouTube channel, the musicians discussed how their family life has been affected by the Covid-19 crisis over the past few months, and answered questions from fans

Beginning the segment, Alicia asked whether the two had ever spent as much time together as they had during their coronavirus pandemic, to which Swizz shook his head and said: “This is, like, married married married.”

The singer went on to admit that she’s “loving” having some downtime, and confessed: “For (the children) to wake up knowing that we’re always there, for us to wake up, always being there — it’s kinda cool.”

We can’t wait to see what this talented singer-songwriter may have cooked up for fans during lockdown.

Redemption through song, Israel Nkeki’s story is like no other.

Israel Nkeki has lived a life worthy of a 100 films. A life journey that has taken Israel from Nigeria to Lewisham, from the streets to a stint in prison and eventually to becoming the soulful Croydon residing singer-songwriting he is today. 

After a conflict filled childhood in Benin City (Nigeria), a young Israel relocated to New Cross (London). Young, impressionable and cast a drift Israel Nkeki descended into a life on the streets and eventually found himself serving a sentence in prison. Prison was the wakeup call Israel needed, a turning point in his life that prompted him to put his pain into a creative medium and tell his story through music.

‘Moonlight’, Israel’s debut single coming on 20th June, uses hard hitting lyrics to tell the story of his painful journey and how split second decisions can have lifelong impact. Set on a backdrop of contemporary soul beats the track is emotive, poetic and modern.

 Israel’s music is rich with harsh realities, real life experiences and hard-learned lessons presented with soul, feeling and emotion. A story that needs to be told and a voice that needs to be heard. 

‘Moonlight’ is due to be released on June 20th.

‘Italian Fingerstyle Master’ Alberto Lombardi Releases Epic Acoustic Ballad Inspired by Dante’s Inferno

“Italian Fingerstyle Master” – Acoustic Guitar Magazine

“The record is killing, such great musicianship!”– Nile Rodgers

“Acoustic Maestro…thrilling acoustic work. The Italian ace deploys his immense technique to serve the song, not the reverse” – Pete Prown, Vintage Guitar Magazine

Alberto Lombardi’s latest single ‘Start Again’ is an intense single with lyrics pulled from some of the most beautiful lines of the Italian poet Dante’s Inferno. Dante imagines that Ulysses sails to unknown shores with his men, instead of going back to Itaca, leading them beyond the pillars of Hercules where the world was believed to end. His speech to persuade them to endure the challenge is a literary milestone and shines a light on the human soul’s infinite capabilities.

Ma per seguir virtute e canoscenza”  [“we were born to pursue virtue and knowledge”]

LISTEN TO ‘START AGAIN’ ON SOUNDCLOUD

‘Start Again’ is a rich, epic ballad with revelatory guitar work and powerful lyrics about a fresh start after overcoming challenges, reflecting some of the most beautiful lines in literary history. Coupled with a superb video, it shimmers with the timeless sound of bands like The Eagles and a Sting-like vocal, whilst feeling completely contemporary.

Alberto Lombardi has already built a huge fan base with his expressive guitar playing and rich songwriting, including celebrities like Chic’s Nile Rodgers and legendary engineer Bob Clearmountain (Bruce Springsteen; David Bowie; Rolling Stones).
