Matty T Wall Lifts You Out of the Winter Blues and Brings You Stunning ‘Blue Skies’

Watch a taste of Matty T Wall here:

Perth born and bred Matty T Wall is already well on his way to joining legends just like Dave Hole, Bon Scott (ACDC) and the John Butler Trio. “I am like an elastic band pulled really tight, ready to go,” he says. “That’s how I feel about my music.” In his youth following bands like Metallica and Sepultura he recognised how they honoured the blues masters before them, aspiring to be at their level he got into the blues and since Matty has “never gotten out of it.”.

Having studied many disciplines such as flamenco, swing jazz and funk Matty is recognised as a master of the guitar. He wrings raw emotions from as little as a single note by bending the strings of his beloved 1961 Les Paul Custom into tantalising sounds that make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up to attention. He is not just playing music of the past though, he is redefining the genre with his modern stance and influences. ” the fresh blood from dynamic youngsters Old Blood and MattyTWall, showing that age is not a factor in bringing out the Blues in people.”

By Derek Cromb, announcer on 89.7 FM’s Play The Blues., Rhythm Magazine Blues At Bridgetown 2013

The ‘Blue Skies’ single showcases his creative playing through the wonderfully detailed virtuosic inflections he decorates his music with. As observed by Geoff Scott, “One of the best blues guitarists that I have ever witnessed. ” from the White Star, Albany.

Nat Birchall -Sound Soul And Spirit

“Creation” is Nat Birchall‘s eighth album and his most fully realised to date. The group assembled for this recording features two drummers, Johnny Hunter and Andy Hay, and along with Nat, pianist Adam Fairhall and bassist Michael Bardon they create a sound and energy perfectly matched to reveal the deepest messages within the music. The group create enough kinetic energy for interstellar travel, which is exactly where the music takes the listener!

Check out his Soundcloud here:

 

From the opening bars of “Love in the Cosmos” to the closing diminuendo of “Light of All Worlds” the music stretches and soars, taking the listener both deep within themselves and also to the furthest reaches of space/time on a journey of profound emotional expression that ultimately uplifts the spirit.

Gilles Peterson said Nat is “one of the best musicians in the UK, no question”, plus Nat’s last album (“Invocations”, on Jazzman Records) was featured in his best of 2015 show. Nat’s music is regularly featured on Gilles’ radio shows, as well as BBC Radio 3 shows, Jazz on 3 and Jazz Line-Up, plus Jamie Cullum’s BBC Radio 2 show and shows like Gideon Coe on BBC 6 Music.

Creation is a five-track, 35-minute long album and will be available on CD and in digital download/streaming formats.

Cherry White new EP ‘Staring at the Sun’ with New single ‘Drifter’

The EP is led out of the gate by single ‘Drifter’, which will be released on June 1st, one week prior to the full EP:  

Engineered at Bark Studios by the excellent Brian O’Shaughnessy (Primal Scream, The Firm, My Bloody Valentine), the EP does a fantastic job of capturing the frenetic energy of a band who thrive on a live environment.

Folding the old school songwriting smarts of Fleetwood Mac into the contemporary edge of the Raconteurs, London based four piece Cherry White are an immediately impressive proposition. Their in your face indie-blues sound is highlighted by great hooks and high energy, blending genres in a way that sets them apart from more pigeonholed bands.

Capture

Cherry White’s live reputation was cemented at ‘Togfest’ in 2014, where their festival debut to a huge crowd was so well received they immediately sold out of albums. Having also taken to the stage at some of London’s top venues, including The Troubadour, Hope and Anchor (Islington) and Covent Garden Arts Theatre, their reputation in our fair capital is beginning to grow. Further afield, a BBC Wales live session a number of years ago proved there’s life outside the city for this eclectic group.

And with the single and EP on the way, Cherry White will be working harder than ever to make sure that reputation continues to grow into the music career they deserve.

Kinky Dove 3 track release – EP

3 track release set to be unleashed on June 15th

Born in in Australia but now living in London, Kindy Dove is the musical moniker of frontman Scott Wade and his evolving collective of musicians. Progenitors of gritty, driving rock, the group are readying themselves for a fresh assault on the music industry with a brand new three track EP.

Produced by Chris Kimsey, previously of Olympic Studios, the EP marks Kinky Dove out as one of the earthiest rock bands on the scene. Fans of Scott Wade and Kinky Dove before they began working together, the producer understood the style and heights at which the music was aiming, and helped mould that vision into the musical reality that Kinky Dove has become.

The CD was mixed by Wade. Studio legend Phill Brown loved the sound of the CD, commenting that the mixes were “open and alive.”

The resulting EP is a continuation of form from previous album ‘Kinky Dove vol. 1’, and the latest step in Kinky Dove’s  climb.

Their particular brand of rock and roll, defined in many ways by the bluesy, post-rock growl of Wade on vocals, is currently in short supply both nationally and globally, and Kinky Dove are now looking to redress that balance.

For a taste of their punchy style, check out the video to EP track ‘Some Kind of Fool’, featuring an epic slap-happy montage of Hollywood moments.

The EP also features a remix/cover version of classic 1978 track ‘Another Girl Another Planet’ by The Only Ones – in this case titled simply ‘Another Girl’.

There is also a trance remix of ‘It’s Called Heartache’ on the EP. You can find the video for this at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJIxSzoYQ-g
