    Jemma Siles Releases Latest Single ‘Light Me Up’

    Released today, ‘Light Me Up’ is the latest single from award winning singer songwriter, Jemma Siles. Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, examines the battle of blame that takes place in the immediate cessation of a fight, and uses the lyrics of the song to forge contrasts between picking a fight, and letting go, allowing the listener to understand more deeply what is happening inside her head. ‘Light Me Up’ is  a gentle pop tune which makes good use of Jemma’s clever lyrical talent, with each line filled with hidden meaning.

    BAD MEN RISING – Protest Singer and Occupy Activist Tom Moriarty On Britain, Brexit and The Battle Against Injustice

    Neither Boris Johnson nor Jeremy Corbyn can save Britain from the divisive mess of Brexit – that’s the view of up and coming protest singer Tom Moriarty. The husky-voiced troubadour, often compared to Ray LaMontagne, believes the polarisation of politics across not just the UK, but much of the world, stems from the global financial crisis of 2007.

He says the Brexit Leave campaign, backed by wealthy right-wing businessmen,…

    Chris Butler – ‘Summer Money’

    After more than forty years in the spotlight, fans of Chris Butler have got a pretty good idea what to expect from him. Butler has earned himself a reputation as one of the most forthright and funny lyricists around, and his studio provocation has won him the respect of creative, risk-taking recording artists around the country. He helped kick-start the Akron sound with Tin Huey, he turned surf-rock expectations upside-down with Purple k’niF, and as the songwriter and guitarist of The Waitresses, he penned a holiday favourite (‘Christmas Wrapping’) and an eternally relevant pop-rock classic (‘I Know What Boys Like’). The cheekily-titled ‘Got It Togehter !’, is Butler’s latest collection of experiments,…
