The Limited – Time

The Limited are Aled Williams, Josh Iszard, Jack Howell, Matt Featherstone & Jack Byrne. With 3/5 of the band from Cardiff, South Wales & 2/5 of the band coming from Devon, they came together and formed in London, aiming to make waves across the world whilst representing various parts of the UK.

This self-produced new age electro funk pop five piece have been cementing their sound all around the UK for the past few years.
Inspired by artists like Stereophonics, Prince & Fleetwood Mac, they find a unique style which separates them as ‘not just another pop band.

In the previous 3 years they’ve supported bands such as Pierce Brothers, Alt-J, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds & The Sugar Hill Gang in venues such as The Scala, The 229, the o2 Academy Islington & Cardiff Swalec Stadium. They’ve also done various Headline shows at venues across the country. They have created a strong and consistent online presence with over 100,000 views on there YouTube channel and a growing Facebook page.

The Limited aim to create a bigger fan base on all of their social media platforms and hopefully tour the country by the end of 2019 and also aiming to be played on national radio and gain attention from mainstream media.

The Limited are currently working on their 4th EP ‘TIME’ at their own studio and aim to have it out by the end of the year. Their discography consists of “Pseudoscience” (2015) “Small Talk” (2017) “Money” (June 2018) which is on all media platforms.

“The name may sound like any other popular boy band, but in their latest EP Pseudoscience, The Limited prove to the musical world that the pop genre label does not have to limit musicality.” (James Martin – wordpress.com)

“The Limited are a band with incredible musicality for their early stages as a pop band. My only hopes for this band are that their would be further strides towards consolidating their unique vibe, and that they would continue to not conform to the pretenses of the popular music stereotype.” (wordpress.com)

Will be performing their new EP ‘TIME’ live at The Courtyard Theatre, Old Street.

Anna Dellaria – I Choose Me

LA-based pop-meets-R&B songstress Anna Dellaria returns today with her new single, “I Choose Me.” The anthemic new tune will also be heard on TV Land’s critically-acclaimed show Younger, starring Hilary Duff and Sutton Foster.

Premiering today on The New Nine, “I Choose Me” is a powerful anthem for anyone who has ever felt apologetic for who they are or are not. Driven by tight production, Anna’s smooth soulful vocals captivate during intimate verses before booming with unbridled power on the refrain.

On the powerful meaning behind “I Choose Me,” Anna writes, “It’s an anthem for anyone who’s ever been manipulated, taken advantage of, or felt worthless for not fitting some ridiculous standard. In which you choose to commit to yourself and honor who you are, whether or not people are going to like or understand it. So often we are told to hide the parts of ourselves labelled as “flaws”, instead of looking at them as pieces that demonstrate strength, authenticity and character.  ‘I Choose Me’ is the moment you decide to say “f*ck that – I’m enough” and aims to allow those vulnerabilities to empower us instead of living with them as chains we can’t break and must make up for. ”

In keeping with the spirit of the song, Anna will also be donating a part of the proceeds collected from the song to Girls Inc of Alameda County. The organization gives girls from underprivileged neighborhoods the opportunities and resources that can help shape them into strong, smart, and bold young women.

A recent graduate of USC’s prestigious Thornton School of Music, Anna has truly honed her vocal and writing skills over the past few years – and it shows. She kicked off her career singing backup vocals for legendary acts such as John Fogerty and Chaka Khan.

Anna stepped into the spotlight last year with her single “Bolder,” landing a prominent sync of TV Land’s Younger and surpassing over 325K Spotify streams. With a rising profile, prominent furniture company Ethan Allen tapped Anna to sing in a national campaign that aired during the 2018 Academy® Awards.

Translating lyrical singer-songwriter catharsis a la Jeff Buckley through bold Aretha Franklin-style delivery, Anna Dellaria is quickly carving out a place of her own in the music industry.

Foley – Talk About It

Foley  started  almost  as  a  dare  –  a  challenge  between  two  long  time  friends  to  blend  their  mutual  love  of  popfunk  and  dance  into  a  meaningful  spin  on  pop  music.  Frustrated  with  the  standard  model  of  two-piece  acts  being  pigeonholed  into  1  vocalist  and  1  producer,  Foley  made  a  point  to  be  equal.  Songs  are  crafted  together,  50/50;  with  neither  party  more  important  than  the  other.  In  a  male  dominated  industry  where  female  vocalists  are  often  commoditized,  it’s  an  important  distinction  to  make.

Both  talented  writers,  producers,  and  performers,  the  pair  collaborate  on  everything  from  lyrics  &  melody  to  instrumentation  &  performance  –  nothing  is  one  sided  and  the  result  is  greater  than  the  sum  of  its  parts.  The  long  list  of  achievements  following  their  debut  single  ‘Settle’ is  proof  that  going  against  the  grain  works.

Released  in  October  2017,  the  bass-driven  debut  immediately  launched  the  pair  into  local  hearts  and  minds,  receiving  extensive  radio  support  from  one  of  New  Zealand’s  largest  commercial  radio  stations  ZM  and  NZ’s  largest  dance  station  George  FM. ‘Settle’  also  received  wide  support  from  DSPs,  landing  on  Spotify’s  prestigious  Fresh  Finds:  Hiptronix  playlist  and  clocking  up  over  50K  streams  since  release.  And  after  only  one  month  in  the  public  eye,  Foley  were  invited  to  play  New  Zealand’s  largest  New  Years  festival,  Rhythm  &  Vines  for  it’s  second  consecutive  sold-out  year.

Waves  like  this  don’t  go  unnoticed  –  Foley’s  success  quickly  pricked  the  ears  of  the  industry,  landing  the  duo  features  on  tastemaker  blogs  like  Coup  de  Main.  The  pair  also  secured  government  funding  and  a  coveted  spot  on  the  NZ  On  Air’sNewTracks  disc  –  which  is  presented  to  top  level  broadcast  media.  Behind  the  scenes,  the  duo  have  formed  a  relationship  with  some  of  NZ’s  best  producers:  Josh  Fountain  (Thomston,  LEISURE,  MAALA)  and  Djeisan  Suskov  (Mitch  James,  Matthew  Young)  –  trying  new  sounds  and  tearing  apart  old  habits.

TS Graye – MY2

TS Graye

MY2‘ – or Murder You 2 – is a remarkable introduction to an incredibly special new artist: TS Graye. At just seventeen years old, the Bristol singer-songwriter packs an almighty punch with her first release; powerful, smoky vocals glide atop smooth beats and neat production touches, with dark yet humorous lyricism inspired by her love of horror movies (fact: if she wasn’t a musician, she’d be pursuing a career as a makeup artist for horror shows).
Produced by Louis Mattrs, who she met online, ‘MY2’ is the first track from an EP due in October. In TS Graye’s words, “I wrote MY2 after finding out that someone I loved had broken my trust. It reflects the different and conflicting emotions I felt in the aftermath of that situation. At first, I play it off and try to fool myself that I’m cool with what has happened, but, in reality, I’m angry and hurting, hence the aggressive switch in the lyrics and production. I think you have to acknowledge and work through those feelings to accept the shit that happens and leave it in the past.
Growing up in the West Country, TS Graye’s influences never strayed far from home; trip hop and the sounds of neighbouring Bristol (e.g. Massive AttackTrickyPortishead) play out heavily in her music, but true to her generation she discovered most of the music she loves online (she references Lana Del ReyBanksPost Malone and Drake and her sound invokes likeness to greats RihannaSZAAlicia Keys and Jorja Smith). Self-taught, TS Graye learned how to produce and play piano from her bedroom and has been writing two songs a week since she was thirteen.
Despite spanning genres, exploring multiple perspectives, and experimenting with different vocal styles, ‘MY2′ works; it is natural, smooth and believable, showcasing a sophistication that belies her age. TS Graye’s intricate lyricism must also not be overlooked. With this single, she engages wordplay and double entendre – the line “guess I have to murder you 2” has multiple meanings, as does “f*ck with your beauty“.
Living in a small town encouraged TS Graye to explore the bounds of her creativity, and nowadays her passions outside of music include experimenting with make-up and working on a zine, which she has put into print ready to distribute alongside the release of her first pieces of original material.
The debut single ‘MY2‘ (“This ain’t just a heartbreak, this ain’t just a heartache…”) will be closely followed by next release ‘Rich Or Poor’ (“I don’t care about the past no more, just tell me that you love me…”). Sincere, evocative, relevant and inspired: TS Graye is an artist full of promise.

The album contains a collection of songs with some designed to get you blissfully moving on the dancefloor while others have you chilling back and reflecting on the fast-paced and cluttered world that surrounds us.

Markus Mann’s journey leading up to this release has been one of both change and discovery.

The album takes more of an introspective turn with “For You” where you are left reflecting on your personal journey amidst an ever-changing world. The successes of this collection lie in Mann’s seamless ability to exude an emotional maturity in his tracks while keeping you fun-loving and carefree at the same time.

C. Gold – Nobody

C. Gold

C. Gold is the new smashing artist from Sweden that, with his debut single ‘’Nobody feat. Fancy Dave’’, shows that he is here to stay! It’s not very often an artist makes an entrance as strong as C. Golds.

Some artists take years to figure out their sound and style, but listening to ‘’Nobody’’ and seeing the artwork makes C. Gold’s debut crystal clear and easy to love! Worth to know is that he does it all completely independent.
