If…, is the debut solo album from Bill Ryder-Jones, released November 2011 to wide critical praise. ‘Give Me A Name’ is the album’s penultimate track, a stark and nakedly emotional song that has been given a cinematic interpretation by fast rising UK director Sean Conway from the Pinball Films stable. Shot at an abandoned Magnesium plant in Steetley, Hartlepool in association with Northern Film & Media.
'Lost In The Pressure' is the latest album from Dive Index, an electro-acoustic collaborative project spearheaded by songwriter/producer Will Thomas. Recorded in New York City and Los Angeles, the album features vocals by Isaiah Gage and Simone White. Will, Isaiah and Simone share co-writing credits.
Simone White is an LA based singer/songwriter who has released three well-received albums on Damon Albarn’s Honest Jon’s record label. Her songs have been used in many TV ads, including ‘The Beep Beep Song’ featured in a popular Audi commercial. Simone’s affinity for music was shaped by a non-traditional upbringing in a family of musicians, artists and performers.
Peh Per Ghost is a Homerton via Gloucestershire artist and producer combining found sounds with a love of melody. Ambient textures and static collide with layers of guitar and chanted vocals. His music is a mix of the strange and the familiar, the palliative and the visceral. Tracks build up and fall away. They are filled with the murmur and hum of the urban landscapes that inform them. They present a sedated view of the city that carries a soothing sense of anonymity and freedom alongside an undercurrent of menace.
His debut EP, 'Peep Holes', was released on 7th February, 2014. Watch the official video for the track 'Tin Can Calm' above.
Caitlin Cantydelivers her fine-edged songs with a 1930′s Recording King guitar and a dusky alto, painting the line between joy and pathos with uncanny precision and power. Raised in small-town Vermont, the daughter of a school teacher and a house painter, she spent a decade in New York City cutting her teeth on both sides of the microphone – as a performer and as the first employee of the successful Artists Den series. In 2014 she will releaseRECKLESS SKYLINE, a new collection of original songs produced by acclaimed songwriter Jeffrey Foucault, and featuring an all-star band on twelve songs that veer nimbly between country ballads and straight-up rockers, dark blues and sparsely arranged folk.
A constant collaborator, Canty writes and performs with several bands, including Down Like Silver – her ongoing duo project with Nashville’s Peter Bradley Adams – and the Massachusetts-based indie-folk quartet Darlingside. She has released two full-length albums under her own name, most recently GOLDEN HOUR, a gently produced and Western-tinged album tracked live in Maine in the winter of 2012. Meanwhile, Canty spends much of her year on the road, or dividing her time between Nashville, Idaho, and New England.
Both on the road and on her unreleased new album, Caitlin Canty teams with some of the finest musicians in the world – including members of Morphine, Booker T, Cold Satellite, and Ray LaMontagne’s Pariah Dogs – to create a sound that harnesses the grit and spark at the very heart of American music, and tempers it with a voice at once so haunting and distinct that it’s instantly memorable, instantly classic.
Watch Caitlin Canty perform “Southern Man”with Jeffrey Foucault and Billy Conway at The Ark in Ann Arbor, Missouri above. The video was shot and directed by Randy LeMieux.
