Interlude

By Sarah Lightman

PopSoul


My dad who was a singer/songwriter passed away when I was 14. At that time I was discovering how much I loved the medium of music and writing lyrics. He told me that I was different like him and he encouraged me to let my differences shine even when moments in life are hard. He would say “The best thing you can choose to do in this life is something you love.” His sudden passing shook up my path and I wasn’t sure how to keep developing in music. I took a series of interludes over the next 10 years that helped remind me of the legacy my dad shared. These songs represent the hardships and self awakening I needed to go through to remind me that his spirit never once left and how the obstacles helped me grow into the artist I needed to become.

Talon, (Like the Claw)

By Talon David

JazzPopRock


Talon, Like the Claw is my debut EP, so naturally it is meant to be an introduction to me and my musical messages. As an artist, my goal is to foster community through our shared experiences, and also to help process those experiences in the most positive way. I want to be like your musical BFF and therapist in one! I chose these songs because they create the atmospheres of the human journey—at least how I’ve experienced it so far.

Midnight Train

By The Terraplanes Blues Band

BluesRnBRock


Screaming slide guitar, howling harmonica and a solid rhythm section make up the dynamic of The Terraplanes Blues band and this debut E.P is packed full of examples of why their E.P hit the top 5 of the UK Blues chart. The songs combine styles of Jump Blues, Rockabilly and R'n'B. Opening track Midnight Train and Voodoo Blues both have a great bottleneck guitar grooves while Catfish and The Rambler sees the band really let loose with driving rockabilly/jump blues rhythms. With Malted Milk (the only cover on the E.P), the harmonica really takes centre stage with a howling solo supported by a powerful barrelhouse vocal performance.

Mercury Messenger

By Chad Quist

FusionInstrumentalJazzRock


Mercury Messenger brings to mind guitar gods like Jeff Beck, Joe Satriani and Eric Johnson, but unlike other instrumental rock records it is also smooth and song based, giving you hints of Pink Floyd, Rush, Toto, Steely Dan and The Beatles. Quist has enlisted the help of Jonathan Mover (Joe Satriani, GTR, Fuel) and Ben Smith (Heart) on drums, as well as Ty Bailie (Katy Perry) on B3 organ, among other top LA sidemen to round out the record.

Voices

By LPFM

AlternativePopRock


Sharing musical influences and experiences for many years, they have found the right synergy taking you on musical journeys from the harmonic bending of John Lennon, through the jangly perfection of Tom Petty, up to the atmospheric rock of Tears For Fears. Their songs contain so much and yet sound simple and wonderfully complete.

Colours You Can't See

By Lili Joy

AlternativeIndiePop


"Colours You Can't See - deluxe edition" are the emotions and feelings that we carry around with us every day that we don't let other people know about,” shares LiLi Joy. “Some of them we'd be proud to wear on our sleeve while the others, not so much. All of the songs on the EP were written during a time where I was isolated with myself and my emotions.. As a result of that, I hope from the bottom of my heart that people can feel unashamed of being the beautiful, complex confusions that they truly are.”
