‘Moment’s Passed’ is the new single from Dermot Kennedy which launched last night as Zane Lowe’s ‘World Record’ on Beats1. Kennedy crafts songs which are at once stripped-back yet explosive, his emotive vocal having the dichotomy of being both soaring and intimate atop R&B influenced percussion. His tracks have already amassed over 50 million streams across streaming platforms. As well as his online presence Dermot also controls a diehard live following, selling out shows across America and Europe including two upcoming back to back shows at London’s Omeara and two sold out hometown shows at Dublin’s Button Factory – with both London shows selling out in under 10 minutes.

Something amazing happens when Hothouse Flowers step onto the stage – something that has been shaped by over thirty years of singing and playing all over the world, yet no two shows have ever been the same! There is a sense of musical adventure, an impulse to reach new heights and depths in music where the unspoken aim is that the band and the audience become one and the world becomes a different place for a while. There is an unpredictable energy in the band that harkens back to their “Risk” days playing on the dancefloors of Dublin’s late-night clubs. They call upon their grand repertoire to create a show that is unique to the time and place. Improvisation can come at any point and allow the band express their brightest and their darkest influences. “Rock and Roll is not about safety or politeness, it is not about perfection either. It is expression and it is spirit.” Humour is also never far from a Hothouse Flowers night. They do not take themselves seriously however, there is no mistaking the musical integrity among them as they open up to each other in musical dialogue. Hothouse Flowers are a rock n’roll band, […]

Elbow returned with their seventh studio album in February 2017. As with the previous three elbow albums it was produced by Craig Potter. ‘Little Fictions’ is emphatically a band album. Having written individually for its chart-topping predecessor, ‘The Take Off and Landing of Everything’, sessions this time were collective affairs, with all four members gathered initially in a house in Scotland before moving to Guy’s attic in Prestwich and finalising recordings in the familiar setting of Blueprint studios, Salford. ‘Little Fictions’ is an upbeat album. All the band talk of the sessions being ‘joyful’, Mark summarises it as ‘the sound of four people who love what they do and each other’, of an album that came into being naturally and, at times even unconsciously. Lead single ‘Magnificent (She Says)’ was embraced for the joyous, thrilling piece of music it is, positive and outward looking. Mark never even considered his audible switch towards electric guitars, most notable on the psychedelic lushness of ‘All Disco’, until the very end of the process. The departure of drummer Richard Jupp prior to commencing the writing and recording process in earnest saw early sessions characterised by new approaches to rhythm, with the band utilising percussive […]

In a career spanning three decades, racking up over 30 million records sales worldwide and a string of Grammy, Brit and Ivor Novello awards along the way, Seal continues to shine as one of the world’s brightest music stars. “Standards” brings the glamour of Old Hollywood straight to the present. It is a natural successor to his series of soul records, made a decade ago which sold over 5 million copies around the world. “Standards” hears Seal’s signature, velvety warm vocals bring to life classics made popular by Frank Sinatra (such as ‘Luck Be A Lady’, ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’ and ‘It Was A Very Good Year’), Ella Fitzgerald (‘I’m Beginning to See The Light’) and Nina Simone (‘I Put A Spell on You’). Elsewhere, there are lush orchestral moments captured on ‘Smile’ (Charlie Chaplin) and the Cole Porter gem, ‘Love For Sale’. The sound of Seal’s new album is also shaped by three renowned collaborators: Grammy-nominated British producer Nick Patrick (who has worked with luminaries including Tina Turner and Marvin Gaye and enjoyed huge chart success with his pioneering Elvis orchestral albums), multi Grammy-nominated arranger Chris Walden, and legendary engineer Don Murray.
