Adam Lanceley Is An Inspiration Proving That We You Really Can Do Anything You Put Your Mind To

 

Some could look at it as a miracle, some may look it at as destiny, but what is certain is that there is no obstacle stopping Adam Lanceley from doing what he wants to do.

At the age of 10, Adam was involved in a car crash, which ended up in Adam suffering from severe brain and spine injury’s. At the first stages of his recovery, doctors told his parents that it was unlikely that he would survive. After time had past, they were then convinced that he would never be able to walk again.

 

However, now Adam is recording and releasing self-written songs, as well as featuring in a music video! And I’m not even going to start on the marathon he ran!(Even though its awesome).

The song ‘A Film We All Saw’, is a light tune, that will satisfy and sooth your soul. With the music video being an inspirational moment for anyone and everyone.

Julia Mascetti – A Modern Day Dream Weaver

Dream weaving is no easy feat, but Julia Mascetti and her harp do just that with an ease and sense of style that only a true sonic whizz can pull off.

Listen to a live version of her track “In Bloom” here

Growing up in the UK but living in Tokyo, Julia is a melting pot of influences and her new EP, “In Distance, Everything Is Poetry” showcases this perfectly.

One of the more standout tracks from the EP is In Bloom. The song is built around a haunting picked arpeggio that provides the perfect foundation for Julia’s storytelling and leaves space for the smaller, more delicate details of the production to shine through. Weaving cleverly in and out of this are masterfully placed snippets of traditional Japanese sounds and it is this that gives the music its distinct, eclectic character.

The end result though is something that is truly unique, emotive and haunting and showcases the storytelling of someone who truly loves and respects their craft.

Adam Lanceley helps out Brain and Spine Foundation with new EP

Records always seem to have a much greater impact when they’re devoted to a good cause, just think about the Military Wives for example. But now, singer-songwriter, Adam Lanceley has returned with another one, a new EP that is donating all its proceeds to the Brain And Spine Foundation.

This charity, in particular, is close to Adam’s heart as it is one he has raised money for in the past, running several 10k races and even the London marathon in their name. However, Adam had to come a long way before he reached this point.

As a child, a terrible car crash left Adam with seemingly irreparable damage to his head, and the doctors told his parents that he would never walk or talk again. As you can see, Adam proved them wrong and is now a hugely inspirational musician too.

Music became a form of therapy for Adam and he began to write music during his adolescent years, after picking up the guitar and learning some basic skills. Since then, Adam has produced a stunning back catalogue of 5 full length albums, Back To The Sunshine, the new EP being his sixth record.

The EP continues with Adam’s summery style, employing intricate guitar leads alongside well thought out lyrics where there is much more beneath the surface than originally meets the eye.

‘Call Me The Moon’ by Mark L. Oakes

Belgian singer-songwriter, engineer and producer Mark L. Oakes is releasing the ideal soundtrack for what he calls a ‘karmic road trip’ with his debut album Call Me The Moon.

Mark’s home studio, tucked away in the Ardennes, provided the perfect location to record the album, whilst it was mastered in Los Angeles by Grammy award winner, Gavin Lurssen.

Oakes’ influences are clear once you listen to his music and he is keen to show his admiration for the likes of Neil Young, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Tucker Zimmerman and Ryan Adams.

While singles ‘Shredded Jeans’ and ‘Friend From Above (Sleepless Spouse)’ are tinged with soft melancholy, tunes like ‘Aloof Again’ and ‘None Of These Roads’ will lead you straight to a risky, bitter ground. Although Mark’s sound can best be placed in the folk genre, he employs elements of rock too such as the deep and resonant, yet subtle electric guitar on ‘Aloof Again’.

Travelling between Europe and the United States with a bag full of projects, Mark sees ‘Call Me The Moon’ as the silver thread out of the vague existential maze. The album is a must listen for anyone wanting to rediscover their love for quality folk music – a real easy listener!

James Kennedy is Back on the Scene With ‘Home’

Having found success with hardcore-rock band, Kyshera, front-man James Kennedy is continuing his musical journey solo with his change-of-direction album, Home.

James has a number of accolades to his career, having performed to many sold out crowds and even supporting fellow Welsh giants, The Stereophonics. However, after a long time spent touring, the glitz and glamour began to wear off and James unfortunately struggled with depression.

Despite this, his hardships inspired him to get back on the musical bandwagon and write his own album. James wrote, recorded and mastered the album within just a few months, showing how the process was a form of therapeutic catharsis for the singer songwriter. The melodic, emotional, but catchy sound of the album expresses his experience during the past few years of constant touring.

An entirely self-taught musician, James picked up a number of instruments at a young age including guitar, piano and bass, even though his formative years were made difficult due to three major surgeries to resolve hearing problems. As James grew, along with his talents, he went on to attend the Welsh College of Music and Drama where he used his skills in the field of music production to later form his own label, Konic Records.

Kennedy’s soulful rock style is sure to be a hit with a multitude of music fans and if you need one more reason to check him out, he was voted 32nd sexiest man in Wales. What more could you need?

Home is out 31st March – find out more on James here:

From supporting Scouting For Girls to working with Razorlight, Big Lenny Bunn returns with cover ‘Blueberry Hill’

From sharing a stage with Razorlight, Noah And The Whale and Feeder, to supporting Scouting For Girls and Wilkinson, Big Lenny Bunn has dedicated his life to the industry. Returning with a classic cover of ‘Blueberry Hill’, Lenny has collaborated with major musicians to create a track in dedication to his adopted father who sadly passed away last year.

‘Blueberry Hill’ was Lenny’s adopted father Lyddon Thompson’s favourite track. Being Jamaican, Thompson opened Lenny’s eyes to another way of life and thinking, inspiring his music massively. The loss of Thompson made Lenny want to record ‘Blueberry Hill’, whereby each instrument is recorded in different studios around the world. Collated at Lenny’s studio, mixed with the help of Martin Smith and mastered by Jon Astley, the single according to Lenny is “more beautiful than ever imagined”.

The popular rock ‘n’ roll cover features talented musician Ibo from the Jamaican reggae band Third World and singer-songwriter Melissa James.
