‘What Can Love Create?’ single out now from Nine Beats Collective; ‘Nine Beats to the Bar’ album coming soon

Beautifully crafted and performed, ‘What Can Love Create?’ is the second single from a new album titled ‘Nine Beats to the Bar’; set for release on June 19th from the Nine Beats Collective.

This is a group of creatives from around the world who have been united by one goal – to create an album inspired by a group of bible passages called the Beatitudes.

With this one simple brief, the different artists have spun their own versions and perspectives outwards from this one shared inspiration. The range of results on the final release is dazzling, with ‘What Can Love Create?’ among the many highlights.

Luke Potter – ‘Something More’ single

Chilled and subtle in all the right ways, ‘Something More’ is the thoughtful new single from highly thought-of UK songwriter Luke Potter. Now in his early 20s, this is a man with huge potential who has already worked with a host of top producers.

The single is also set to be included on a brand new album, coming next year, and you can whet the appetite for that by purchasing your very own copy on iTunes.

Ellie Jane, star in the making, releases ‘Clocks’ single and EP

An artist on the up, Ellie Jane is a female singer-songwriter whose wide ranging pop sound is winning many fans. Her new single ‘Clocks’, which also happens to be the title track of her new EP, sees her on sparkling form.

Opening gently and benefitting from a slow addition of layers, the song is mature, well-written pop from an artist who is still in her early days. If she can continue to grow and build on these foundations, Ellie Jane won’t be a hidden gem much longer.

George Montague impressive on new LP – ‘Curiouser and Curiouser George’

Out now, ‘Curiouser and Curiouser George’ is the new album from very promising songwriter and multi-instrumentalist George Montague. Boasting a huge 17 songs – very refreshing in today’s climate of albums clocking in at ten or less – the album demonstrates why there’s such a buzz around this young man.

Talented in many ways, Montague is a songwriter, composer, producer and a dab hand at a whole raft of instruments. This presumably means that he is able to wear many hats while working in the studio, and is able to put his own unique stamp on the results. If that’s so, then this is a very strong showing indeed, as indicated by the excellent video above for single and album track ‘Lost’.

Dale McKay hopes to ‘Make You Happy’ with new single

Every now and again an artist comes along with a voice that simply has to be applauded for its quality. Dale McKay is just such an artist. One listen to latest single ‘Make You Happy’ shows a natural, high quality voice put to great use with his very own funked up version of pop.

The single is being made available ahead of the release of a new EP, ‘Here and Now’, on September 16th. And if each of the tracks on that release showcase his vocal and songwriting as well as this taster, then there’s potentially a big future for Dale McKay. Not bad at all for an unassuming independent songwriter from Yorkshire.

New single – ‘Safe Island’ – Rachel Johnson

Rachel Johnson is a young songwriter from Edinburgh whose new single ‘Safe Island’ is out now. And it’s quite a track.

Following on the heels of well received recent single ‘Pieces of Me’, ‘Safe Island’ is arguably an even stronger track. It’s out now on iTunes, and should be sought out if you’re a fan of new artists with real potential.

Philip Murray Warson releases new free single, ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’

There are few things in life, musically speaking, more pleasurable than the warmth of an acoustic guitar and a soft vocal. With new single ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’ UK folk artist Philip Murray Warson delivers both in droves. His spot on guitar playing, overlaid by his raw, unfiltered voice make this a track well worth checking out – especially seeing as fans of the song can download it for free.

If you enjoy ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’ and would like to hear more from Philip Murray Warson, you’re in luck. There’s an album due later this year, as well as a number of live dates. First though, you can check out his last EP here, yours for only a couple of pounds.

Naomi (the artist formerly known as Caleidra) returns with new EP

Thoughtful and mature at the same time as boasting a hugely infectious melody or two, ‘Rivers Run’ is the latest track from UK singer-songwriter Naomi.

The track is a strong precursor to ‘Take Back the Power’, an EP which comes out on April 22nd, and is yet another example of why the UK press and top UK producers are falling over each other to get on board with this talented youngster.

Seemingly wise beyond her years, Naomi is arguably one of the most exciting independent prospects on the UK music scene – a reputation which can only grow thanks to this top quality release.
