The dude is definitely building momentum. He’s simply a brilliant songwriter every song a hit with massive crossover potential. The kinda tunes that would appeal to anyone with killer hooks that anyone could sing in the shower car or office. Like I said dude is brilliant track is available Aug 15th get it in your life!
Couple of weeks ago Hostess, poet, actress, comedian, singer and more Dione Reid launched her debut EP. The venue was nice packed with peeps out to see and support their girl and she gave em quite a show.
Takes a little while to get going but once you get past the support acts and into her set it starts getting interesting. The lady without doubt has quality. There’s some real nice songs in there. She works with band well and she’s packing one quality vocal. Mad props to her and her team for pulling this all together (no mean feat). An entertainer in every sense of the word, and without a doubt a star in the making and a young lady you’d be foolish not to keep you’re eye on.
So this was the first 2 videos in a new collaborative effort between Music is Remedy and Pinboardblog to bring you footage up close and personal of some of the best artists on the Live scene in rehearsal alongside the Remedies. Featured below are performances from Kaana Ellie of her anthem Traffic and the awesome Ed Sheeran backed by the full band with two tracks The A-Team and Loose Change
Quality look out for more to come!
Big up Pinboardblog team for the visuals and being brilliant peoples!
This is an album I’ve been waiting for years. Wasn’t sure if would ever come the way most of my fellow Brit peers have fallen off the dream and into everyday life (not a bad thing). However come it has and I’m far from disappointed. Stac has the most gorgeous sensual sassy soulful tones to have emerged from a UK soul singer in some time. Packed with bagfulls of character wit and a natural class that can’t be denied. The simple yet effective instrumental set up a delightful backdrop for her vocals . A mixture of Soul folk jazz reggae and more. Lyrical she’s onpoint as well with each track telling a story. It’s an album full of gems but my favourite would have to be the song below have a listen
Not gonna lie any girl that can sing to me those words “come on honey, I’ll love you to the moon drops to the sea” like she does… Woooooiiii…. wifey right there!!! Seriously though she sounds absolutely gorgeous on that hook, a song that was made for a Love Actually/Notting Hill brit flick.
With the likes of Alice Russell and Mark Ronson singing her praises as well as well respected blogs like Put Me On It and Soul Uk you know its something that at the very least is worth checking it out but for just £6 download version you’d have to go poundland for better value. Click the link below for more info but do go checkit out she has an immense quality
A couple of weeks ago the ridiculously gifted Deanna Rodger launched a new weekly poetry event @ The Scream Bar in Bethnal Green. Poet, blogger and now promo maker Zanya Daze went down with her camera to film and give you a little taste of what to expect . With performances from Mr Gee, Raymond Antrobus and Deanna Rodger the standards are very high and there is much more in there too. So if spoken word is your thing get down to Bethnal Green every Tuesday Night for a free dose of genius.
Again props to Zanya Daze for the promo!
This is my pick of the A64’s to come through over the last couple weeks. Bluey is a next level vocalist dude brings something else to the table whenever he unleashes vocals and this is no different. He rips this cover to shreds! This brother is gonna be huge!!!
All year long The Poejazzi team have spent 2010 hosting a range of amazing events all over London showing off the wealth of wonderful spoken word geniuses that can found all over the UK.

Next week for the 2nd year in a row they will be taking over the E4 Udderbelly on the Southbank for the night and what a night it promises to be.

So you know we are all about UK here so its a little bit weird that we are featuring the scandanvian Songstress Rebekka but as the tune features our boy Joleon Davenue we had to show it some love. Its a nice summer song and Joleon rides the beat nice and actually pulls out some Jaffa Cakes!!! Big up to Joleon for doing something that very few out here are doing and reaching out to our peers in Europe. There’s a vast market out there filled with music lovers a little keener to spend money on music then on our own front doorstep.
A little slice of the awesomeness that is Szjerdene….
Not really much you can say after that. Brilliant performance and she really makes the song her own. By the sounds of it she also silence’s a chatty crowd which says a lot about her vocal and performance style. Can’t wait for this lady to drop an album!
