Part of the Britpop explosion, Shed Seven were formed in York in 1990 before signing their first record deal in 1994. The band members were vocalist Rick Witter, bassist Tom Gladwin, guitarist and keyboard player Paul Banks and drummer Alan Leach. Their debut single was followed swiftly by Dolphin, which cracked the top 30. The subsequent single success of Speakeasy led to prime-time television appearances, increased exposure and a higher profile for the Yorkshire-based band. At the end of 1994, Shed Seven’s debut LP was released. Showcasing a series of unapologetically upbeat rock songs, Change Giver went on to sell over 250,000 copies in the UK alone. Hits such as Where Have You Been Lately? and Ocean Pie continued to garner new fans and critics began to see past the simplicity of the Britpop tag. They were inspired in part by The Smiths but praised for their own sound. The music industry lapped up the structured guitar melodies and soaring vocals of Shed Seven’s debut album and the follow-up, A Maximum High. With A Maximum High getting even stronger reviews than its predecessor, Shed Seven spent much of the next two years touring the UK and Ireland. 1996 saw the […]

The concerts are really powerful – there are three musicians on stage – a violinist, cello player and Carmen with her acoustic guitar. Three women who are a symbol of love for life, strength, female sensibility, tempting beauty and fascination.

The genre-defying Mavericks are declaring their independence and stepping out on their own with Brand New Day, the first studio album released on Mono Mundo Recordings, the label they founded in 2016. Brand New Day is the follow-up to the widely praised albums Mono (2015) and In Time (2013). Flashing the same exhilarating, beyond-category style that has defined the Mavericks, the new album introduces a collection of taut, energetic, economical songs sure to be embraced by both original fans of their top-10 albums and hit singles of the ‘90s and a new generation of listeners who have joined the party since their triumphant 2012 reunion. It is the mature and timely work of an exciting and underestimated American band that has embraced its own destiny. “This is the first studio record on our own label, and it is an important component in the band’s history,” Malo says, “but the real goal was just to make a great record.” The album contains a diverse selection of originals that show off the Mavericks’ always multi-faceted musical personality, including the boldly upbeat title song, the tejano/bluegrass flavored “Rolling Along”, the intensely romantic “Goodnight Waltz,” the blues-fueled “Ride With Me,” and the thematically pointed […]
