The Truebelles: ‘Mister Nobody’

It seems like the world of female pop groups is growing a little stale these days, but luckily, London based 3-piece, The Truebelles have turned up on the scene with their brand of female-empowering pop.

This is something that all three of the girls feel strongly about. In the past, a certain image, pushed by the media, has been portrayed in music – one that suggests there is a typical kind of of ‘beautiful’ that all girls must aspire to be. The Truebelles are opposing this stance, attempting to make young girls feel comfortable in their own skin through the powerful medium of music.

‘Mister Nobody’ is their latest single, an infectious pop tune with a super-funky infused edge that you can’t help but tap your foot to. Interestingly, the girls often take turns in singing lead vocals on different tracks, depending on the style of the song and who it suits the most.

For ‘Mister Nobody’, Lorenna takes centre stage delivering a seductive vocal performance, backed up harmoniously by Grace and Tallulah.

Each of The Truebelles have a rich musical and arts based background as Lorenna has also performed with Scottish techno-dance group, The Time Frequency, whilst Grace is a frequent gigger and Tallulah has appeared on Britain’s Next Top Model.

Together, The Truebelles are bringing something new to pop circles and there’s no doubt that you’ll be hearing their name in the near future.

Crossover artist Georg Roman releases ‘Forever’

Fusing his favourite genres of classic operatic styles and rock, Georg Roman has unleashed his powerful track ‘Forever’ on the world.

Although the Russian singer-songwriter did always intend to be a musician, formerly pursuing a career in sport, he has certainly found his calling in music, forming his own unique blend of classical-rock.

Classical instrumentation, including a dramatic piano lead and emotive string sections combine with Georg’s powerful voice, making for music like you’ve never heard it before.

Georg has always enjoyed using his whole vocal range when singing and composing for himself, and this style that he has adopted allows him to do so.

In terms of rock, Georg looks up to the likes of Eric Clapton and Joe Cocker, but he when it comes to classical- the greats such as Luciano Pavarotti and Placido Domingo are firm favourites.

Nina Jones Will ‘Never Let You Go’ With New Single

Nina Jones Will ‘Never Let You Go’ With New Single

nina small

Next teenage sensation juggles brand new pop track release with A-level study!
At just 17 years old, Nina Jones is an extremely talented teenage vocalist with a big future ahead of her. Based in Newport, South Wales, her new single is the kind of accessible hit that can go a long way to establishing a new name in the music industry.
‘Never Let You Go’ is catchy, infectious and toe tappingly paced – soulful pop-funk made to shine thanks to a stellar, pure vocal performance from Nina. This has potential pop hit written all over it, and also follows the recent trend of chart hits peppered with retro 90s touches. It’s a song about asking somebody to trust you in love, to let go emotionally and to fall completely for you.
The video is on the way, but in the meantime, here’s a tease of what you can expect…
https://soundcloud.com/ninajonesmusic/never-let-you-go-sample
‘Never Let You Go’ is written by award winning songwriters Darren Parry, Dan Curtis and Laura Curtis.  Darren has achieved UK Songwriting Contest Award wins (2004 winner ‘Pop’), USA ‘Song Of The Year’, USA ‘Billboard’ and USA ‘Unisong’ awards. Meanwhile, Dan and Laura Curtis have had songs recorded by Paul Potts, Broadway stars Ramin Karimloo & Lea Salonga and also wrote the successful, star studded charity track ‘A Miner’s Song’.
It makes for a heady combination of writing and vocal talent, and, with Darren Parry also on production duties, the track has already had national exposure on Nina’s home turf with BBC Radio Wales.
Not bad progress for a young lady who is also in the midst of her ‘A’ levels at school in Newport and performing with a fantastic 9 piece covers band at weddings, parties and corporate functions. Nina Jones obviously enjoys being busy, and with tracks like this it won’t be long before she’s even busier. Two of her musical heroes are Sam Smith and Adele, but those artists had better keep an eye out for this ambitious young performer from across the River Severn.
‘Never Let You Go’ will be released on April 6th!

Hear it on Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/palegreenthings/pinkflamingo
Jack has supported acts such as ‘The Riffles’, ‘Dave Mcpherson’, and ‘The Coral’ (at Noel Gallaghers aftershow party) and ‘Dirty Sanchez’. He has also accompanied ‘The Virginmarys’, an ever growing popular US group.
Jack’s hobbies and personal interests are heavy influencers in shaping his latest EP. Jack’s interest in geography, travel and even population densities; play a key part in the songs sound and narrative. The lyrics are also inspired by the creation of fictional characters as well as autobiographical situations.
His latest single ‘Pink Flamingo’ is one of his most beautiful songs to date. The infectious chorus is only a part of what makes this whimsical tale of life and astronomical connections so poignant. It is based around the many events that take place under the constellations; with its main focus being about sitting outside the Flamingo Casino in Vegas. The sound is an indie pop mix drawing from influences such as The Killers, Belle and Sebastian, and Idlewild.
Jack has recently been recording music in Glasgow; with a music producer by the name of John McLaughlin over the last few months. John has seen great success in the past and looks to be striking another hit if Pink flamingo is anything to go by. Also, Teenage Fan club star, Francis MacDonald was involved in their recording session too.

Faded Paper Figures | Breathing

With a group of people that have pedigree in teaching English at Yale and Creating music for LA based production companies you would almost expect them to have an aptitude for the written language and ‘Faded Paper Figures’ are a band that do just this:
Breathing FadedPaperFigures

“Now you’re gone, but your breath
is everywhere I still want you to be.
Chicago fires so full of death
could never keep your spirit far from me.
Falling off the glyphs,
nothing corresponds to what you mean,
and every word is set aside.
Five degrees below,
far too cold to walk into the sea,
and no one sees the rising tide,
Now we’re breathing as one, like two rays of the sun
Now we’re breathing as one, like two rays of the sun”

Shannon K debut single aims to ‘Roll Back The Years’

12 year old daughter of Bollywood legend Kumar Sanu ready for first solo single – out May 24th
SHANNON_K_frontWith astounding lyrics written by her nine year old sister Ana and a vocal talent passed down by her legendary father Kumar Sanu, Shannon K’s first single ‘Roll Back the Years’ is due for release on May 24th.
Mixing the influences of English pop music with a dash of Bollywood glamour, the track has the potential to be a real crossover hit – especially when you consider the story behind it.
Returning home from her London school one day in tears, Ana explained that a friend of hers at school was suffering due to the break-up of her family. She soon channelled this inspiration into a set of lyrics which were put to music by older sister Shannon, with the aim of performing it one day at church or school. However, once their father heard the song, he knew it was strong enough to reach a wider audience.
The result is the heartfelt single ‘Roll Back the Years’, sung by Shannon K and ready to make its debut on May 24th.
Single Promo 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVTlPHKX_EY&feature=youtu.be
Single Promo 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1XWF1hV1IQ
Shannon’s father Kumar Sanu is experienced enough to know talent when he sees it and is excited to see his daughter making her own way in the music industry. A glittering career as a vocalist in Bollywood has seen him win a total of 69 awards including 64 in his native India (from Filmfare, Zee Cine, Kishore Kumarand more) plus 5 internationally (from Sunrise Radio-London, West Indian Academy, Grammy-West Indies, Bollywood Music-U.S.A. and Radio Lotus-South Africa).
But perhaps his proudest moment will come on May 24th, with the release of a song written and performed by his young daughters.
Shannon K is looking forward to the release of her first single in the prospect of starting her own singing career. There’s no doubting her vocal ability, and there’s only more to come from the young talent.
Judging by ‘Roll Back the Years’, our money is on the former.s nu er Kumalike the work of an overly proud parent, but Shannonenough to reach a wider audience.

Veronica Brown ‘I Don’t Wanna Be a Sinner’ single out April 15th 2014

Single, feat. DJ John, taken from the ‘Come Quickly’ album, released next year
With a voice described by Billboard magazine as one that “exudes raw, soulful charisma”, Detroit born singer Veronica Brown releases her debut UK single on April 15th, which will also be available to download Worldwide.
Describing herself as a non-denominational Christian, ‘I Don’t Wanna Be A Sinner’ is a great example of how she focuses her faith into her lyrics. A funky blend of hip-hop and pop, featuring rap by DJ John, the track is mastered by Grammy award winning Erick Labson, chief engineer at Universal Mastering Studios.
The collaboration with Labson adds to an already impressive roll call of contributors Veronica has worked with – including Michael J. Powell (producer for eight time Grammy Award winner Anita Baker), Steve King (engineer for Eminem, 50 Cent, Aretha Franklin) and Paul Riser (string arranger for Motown records and more recently R Kelly). Alongside these successes, Veronica has also had her work remixed by the likes of Junior Vasquez, Stonebridge and Nick Nice.
With all that experience behind her, ‘I Don’t Wanna Be a Sinner’ sees a slightly new direction for the vocalist, whose previous work has been more dance-pop oriented. This is the first step in a new, gospel influenced journey. Her previous dance tracks were highly successful however, reaching #1 in the MixMag dance charts, and #12 on the Billboard Dance in the US. They were also remixed by top acts Mousse T and Welcome.
Check out ‘I Don’t Wanna Be a Sinner’ here: https://soundcloud.com/vevebrown/veronica-brown-i-dont-wanna-2
It’s just the latest development in a truly impressive career. In addition to her work with the vaunted names above, Veronica was awarded the Key to the City of Detroit after touring and performing for overseas US troops, and named Ambassador for the State of Michigan.
She also performed in Detroit Mayor Coleman A. Young’s final term Campaign Commercial entitled ‘Power for Tomorrow’ with none other than the ‘Queen of Soul ‘ Aretha Franklin. She requested for Veronica to perform beside her due to her exceptional pitch – a huge honor and pleasure for Brown – a former resident of the Motor City and one of the latest artist to add to its Musical Legacy.
