It’s kinda apt that the best album of the year comes at the end of 2020 - the year we will all want to forget for so many reasons - but a year that will live long in the lives of the few that dared, that tried, that rose up and did something. Was it … Continue reading Album of the Year – Brits and Pieces – Various Artists
When I first wrote about TW back in August it was off the back of hearing the awesome Leaving Berlin single - it was/is different to anything I was listening to at the time. It was hard to pigeonhole, it reminded me of so many other artists music but without actually being able to name … Continue reading Love and Chemicals – Teenage Waitress – Album review

So lets get back to Indie, the kinda indie that was always underground, always going to be off kilter, maybe never going to be world beating, maybe never going to be a club banger, no parkas here thats for sure. I've always looked for the arch, the different, the outsiders, something to challenge my preconceptions, … Continue reading Strange Noise from another World – New Indie for Old Ears

Its like a never ending episode of TOTP - I'm very obsessed with TOTP'90 at the minute - great seeing again Indie taking over the Pops studio. Anyway focus Tanner. So flying out of the blocks … Continue reading The Rebirth Of Cool Hot List 3
One thing I've learnt over the last 6 months is that if you don't ask you don't get and if you don't do it for yourself no one will do it for you. Obviously you should be kind and considerate and nice with it. So when Ashley asked me very nicely to listen to his … Continue reading New Artist – Album Review – Ashley Stacey – The Sun still Shines on you
So here we go again a quick round up of what I've been listening to, that you should all listen to at least once. Hopefully much more.

So here it is - something many of us had asked for, for years and years. A solo album from one of THE greatest soul voices this country or any country have ever produced. The release of this album was supposed to be a huge celebration, a time when the singer was finally paid her … Continue reading Album Review – Denise Johnson – Where does it go
Some artists write albums that are a tough listen. Some are so truthful they hurt when you listen. They hit hard. You want to turn off but you can't. They reach deep inside your soul. Pulling at feelings you didn't know you had or were struggling to control. When I think of these artists and … Continue reading Introducing – Milo Gore – Tougher then the rest

I often wonder over my brekkie (thanks Paul Molloy I use this all the time now) - is it easier or harder being a solo singer/songwriter? I guess it has its benefits: No spoilt brat singer having a tantrum, no royalties to split, no arguments over what is and what isn't going on the set … Continue reading I write the songs that make the whole world sing – The Singer Songwriter
