Single Review: “All Black Everything” – Amy Gadiaga

Amy Gadiaga brought beauty and grace to this track… it starts off with a piano part that’s like a call to action for a jam session, and boy does the whole thing bring its a game from Amy’s bass line and the drums staying in pocket… Her vocals here are the star, with layered harmonies …

Single Review: “Heed The Call” – Sir Archer

This tune is stunning! This could easily be one of my top tunes of the year! 16th notes on the hi hat with with percussion, lovely bit of electric piano but then the chorus hits with that distorted bass…. The vocals are so soulful it hurts… oh lord the guitar solo! Wowwwwwwwww! I’m in heaven …

Single Review: “Will U Be Mine?” Grace Calver

This is the ultimate in pop songs, and even the press release that came with it says it’s the cheesy one. Spoilers? It’s definitely not. Grace shows off great musicianship here with drums that punch through, really gritty 8 bit sounds by the way! What a choice for a track – but then when you …

Single Review: “Retrospective” – Charlotte Adelle

The thing that struck me about this song was the atmospheric production of it. It’s epic, the single note on the piano keeping time, along with the swirling synths. This is beautiful. The chorus is where it got me though both lyrically and musically. The song starts off with the acceptance that no amount of …

Single Review: “The One” – Leigh Thomas

Single Review: “Bump Into Me” – Maya Lane

Maya Lane is back in 2024 with a great indie pop track that screams summer hit for me! The muted guitars under Maya’s voice are like idling engines – this song is about escaping so it fits in nicely – poised ready to go! I love the fact she’s got a picture of a camper …

Gig Review: Tom Robinson Band, Blackheath Halls.

L-R: Andy Treacey (Drums), Adam Philips (Guitar/Vocals), Tom Robinson (Lead Vocals and bass), Lee Forsyth Griffith (Guitar/Vocals), Jim Simmons (Piano). On a rainy night in south London I ventured out to Blackheath Halls to go and see the Tom Robinson Band, and boy am I glad I did. I’m by no means a gig reviewer …
