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.

Dutch indie pop-rocker Natasha Nicholls releases debut EP

3-track download raising money for handicapped children in Asia and Africa

Hailing from a ‘tiny village in the Netherlands’, Natasha Nicholls is an exciting, self-taught musician who quite literally writes songs in her sleep. Having already gained the attraction of the national media in the Netherlands, De Telegraaf (the Dutch version of the Daily Mail) and Story Magazine (one of the biggest magazines in the Netherlands) just to name a couple have featured the young musician.

Each of the three songs from her debut EP, titled simply ‘EP’, were developed from ideas which were roughly recorded after waking up with melodies and lyrics in her head. It’s indicative of a passionately DIY approach that is also reflected in her excellent animated video, which she edited to suit her song entirely herself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_IfYlilpIg

In fact, Natasha Nicholls is a self-made musician in every sense, building her own website from scratch as well as creating the artwork for the EP and setting up and taking her own artist photos. It’s a fierce approach which has won her a great online following and attracted much media attention, as aforementioned – not bad going for an artist who’s also juggling her time with her student studies.

Even more impressive, Natasha Nicholls’ charity work has raised a lot of money over the years for needy children around the world, leading to her own recently established children’s foundation that aims to help handicapped children and orphans in Asia and Africa. For each copy of the EP sold, Natasha has pledged a percentage to the cause.
