Welcome Back Crack of Dawn!

It really is with great pleasure that I get to announce the return of Canadian soul veterans, Crack of Dawn.

After a hiatus that lasted a few years too many, Alvin Jones, Greg Gooding, Carl Harvey, Michael Dunston and Trevor Daley have once again been doing what it is they do best, and the results are simply wonderful. The new album is a collection of songs both old and new that will delight fans of all ages. The music nods towards the classic sounds of Parliament and Earth Wind and Fire, but injects it with a fresh, contemporary edge that borrows from the more recent sounds of Bruno Mars and his funk obsessed entourage.

Listen to new single Spotlight here: https://soundcloud.com/user-956988938/8-spotlight/s-NwcPC#t=11:09

To accuse Crack of Dawn as being a collective of experienced musicians would be putting it mildly.  Guitarist and producer Carl Harvey has been lead-guitarist with Toots & the Maytals since their 1980 “Live at Hammersmith” album, sharing in their Grammy win in 2004. His work with Toots & the Maytals included world tour support slots with the likes of The Rolling Stones and Santana. Also aboard is Rupert Harvey, founder of Canada’s most successful reggae band, Messenjah, not to mention, sax player, Alvin Jones; trombonist, Trevor Daley who has played with reggae behemoths, Third World; the Latin tones of trumpeter Alexis Baro; keyboardist Bela Hayman; drummer Carl Otway, bassist Charles Sinclair who has played with Al Green, and, not leastly, the generously-buttered soulful voice of Michael Dunston, an aural experience like dipping your head in whipped cream. Like the greatest of funk and rhythm and blues bands, they work as a breathtakingly agile unit, more of a force of nature than a band.

Like pouring moonlight in one ear and sunshine into the other, this is true soul and funk music, performed by a band at the height of their powers playing their own instruments and bringing the glories of their past to the present day.”

Keep up with Crack of Dawn here!

‘Father Christmas’ by Jon McDevitt

‘Father Christmas’ is the unique and original product of musician Jon McDevitt who is looking to provide something a little left-field in the Christmas songs category.

Rather than the usual drivel that we hear every December, along with the few festive gems, Jon’s ‘Father Christmas’ presents a new perspective which ponders upon the importance of good ol’ St. Nick – posing the question, would it really be Christmas without him?

Jon’s Christmas sing-along avoids the common approaches to the genre with thoughtful lyrics from co-writer Dominic Hudson and an infectious folk-rock style melody that stands out from the crowd.

Blending influences from the likes of The Smiths and Dexys Midnight Runners, ‘Father Christmas’ is a highly listenable Christmas anthem with more to it than meets the eye; there is a sense of meaningfulness to Jon’s track that is lost on many of the classic festive tunes. Certainly one to look out for this Christmas period!

‘I Didn’t Want To Hear You Say “I’m Leaving”’ – M’GOO

M’GOO are a group of musicians who create easy listening jazz infused pop with strong meanings at the heart of it.

By taking inspiration from more original sources, such as true stories and poems, M’GOO are able to write enchanting love songs with their own unique edge.

‘I Didn’t Want To Hear You Say “I’m Leaving”’ is drawn from a story on Glynn Washington’s Snap Judgement, in which a woman leaves her fiancée after visiting a psychic who tells her that love isn’t always enough.

Despite the tragic circumstances that have inspired the song, there is a very upbeat, positive feel to the track that makes for a relaxed listening experience.

The song is taken from the group’s upcoming album ‘LOVE AND ALL THAT _ _ _ _’ which is also due to be released with a discussion podcast and video art.

Adam Lanceley’s guitar rich ‘Those Rose Tinted Days’

untitled1

Adam’s calling as a musician and his inspirational story has led to the creation of his fifth album, Postcards from Then…, from which the single ‘Those Rose Tinted Days’ is taken.

At the young age of 10, Adam was involved in a serious car accident that left him with severe head injuries. He was told he would probably not walk or talk again, but Adam demonstrated the utmost dedication, proving everyone wrong on his amazing journey.

Whilst Adam’s music is often famed for its use of unconventional instrumentation and old-skool recording techniques, ‘Those Rose Tinted Days’ is led by a bright, catchy lightly-overdriven guitar riff that conjures images of summer days.

If you’re looking for some light, guitar rock-pop with something a bit different, then Adam’s track is one for you.

Crush cover 2400x2400_72dpi

This punky track gives having a ‘Crush’ a new angle. The softness of Line Mari’s voice makes this an enchanting track combined with its relaxing melodies and angelic harmonies. Hints of electronica within the composition, makes it fresh from start to finish. The poppy tune by Line Mari is exceptionally catchy.
