Our next interview is with Lewis Bennett, he appeared on the small and intimate Casemates Showcase Stage armed with just his guitar. The Chichester based singer songwriter had been honing his talent for years and enjoys nothing more than performing to a live audience. At the moment he performs in an acoustic setting but hopes to expand in the future and start experimenting a bit more. If you caught him at the festival he’ll be appearing at the Wedgewood Rooms in Portsmouth.
Anyway, let’s see what questions he was put on the spot with. (more…)
Max Stone is a passionate singer songwriter who performed on the Castle Stage at Victorious. He was backed up with his band members and together they create soulful music that’s delivered with determination and a sense of urgency. All that disappeared though when we found him (or he found us) off the stage, he was pretty relaxed and happy for a chat. (more…)
This is the first of many interviews that took place over the Victorious weekend. The festival in Portsmouth proved to be spectacularly popular and plenty of the artists were more than willing to take time out of their day to share a few words with us.
Suspecting that the festival would be busy we decided to go for quirky interviews, quick ones that allowed us to get to know the artists whilst, hopefully, having a bit of fun at the same time. As a result we decided to go armed with a stack of cards that had random questions written on them, some music related, some not. Our guinea pig for the Musical Nourishment Question Cards (catchy name I know) was Nathalie Gunn, hopefully she didn’t mind. (more…)
Well isn’t this just a catchy and addictive song.
Take it Slow by Tapioca and The Flea is a sort of unique track that sounds like it has been around for ages. When I was playing it someone said it reminded them of The Pet Shop Boys, and I disagreed because I simply don’t like them. There is an artist that this track reminds me of but I just can’t put my finger on who it is. (more…)
Rigbi is the culmination of several artists who experienced the music industry and in the end were drawn together to create this band. I was sent and email for a cover that they did of Let’s be Still by The Head and The Heart. But me being me I couldn’t resist a look at their other offerings and came across Time. (more…)
Jukebox Dream is set to be the new single from LA based band The Rebel Light. It’s incredibly different from what this band has produced before and I’m impressed that they decided to take the risk and step away from the gruff and rough around the edges technique, which has resulted in brilliant tracks such as My Heroes Are Dead and Goodbye Serenade.
I have been listening to Sahara Beck’s You Could be Happy EP all day. It’s full of six fantastic tracks and it’s incredibly difficult to choose which song should be Song of the Day. I’m still trying to decide. So I guess I should ramble on for a bit longer.
Sahara Beck is an Australian singer/songwriter and has an amazingly charming voice. At times there are certain notes she hits and sounds she makes that remind me of Laura Marling. (more…)
