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.

Ashleigh Wood Brings the Sunshine with Latest Release

Listen to ‘Bring Me Sunshine’ here:

Morecambe-born Ashleigh Wood’s version of the Morecambe and Wise classic ‘Bring Me Sunshine’ is a reflection of summertime itself; light, sunny and full of joy. It is a perfect song to enjoy blasting through your car speakers, barbequing or simply lounging outside and making the most of the somewhat unpredictable British weather, and Ashleigh truly makes the song her own. Just try and listen to it without wanting to do the hopping routine the legendary comedians made famous on their classic shows. Summer is here and Ashleigh Wood is set to truly bring it sunshine, whatever the weather.

Bring Me Sunshine will be available from August 24th.

The Fireflies burn bright with self-titled debut EP

London duo’s six track release set for late July

The Fireflies

After a chance shuffling of desks in an Old Street office, Harry and Luca formed The Fireflies. They release their glittering debut EP in late July.

Having cast off suit, boot and tie for a career in the music industry, Harry (vocals, guitar) and Luca (guitar) are busy building their fast growing fan-base. They have already flown high with top quality recordings, a gig at the 2014 Trinity Cambridge May Ball and busking to huge crowds on London’s South Bank.

Voice, woven guitars and poetic lyrics are the trademark of The Fireflies’ debut six track album. Check out their first release, ‘Silver Leaflets’ :

Writing and performing is in The Fireflies’ DNA. Nephew of legendary actor Daniel Day-Lewis, Harry turned heads of record execs from Universal Music after an impromptu cover of ‘Superstition’ with The Noisettes at his uncle’s film premiere after party. He then opened for The Sugababes, and performed solo at the Montreux Jazz Festival with Oxford’s Big Band. Harry’s former harmonies group were crowned world runners up at ICCA (collegiate A Cappella), to a packed Lincoln Centre in New York, with his rendition of Coldplay’s ‘Fix You’. Following that, the group sold out three runs of The Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Already flying high, The Fireflies’ path is set to burn bright with the release of their new EP at the end of the month.

Future headline gigs:
The Troubadour on 24 July
The Bedford on 14 August
Clare Island Seafood Festival in Ireland on 22 August
Barfly Camden on 10 October
