Review: Cholesterol Jones Officially Reveals That ‘Satans In Heaven’

 


 

 

To some, it may feel like a bold statement to say that Satan himself is residing in heaven, however, to Cholesterol Jones its just plain truth.

The folk singer has released a track that expresses his opinion on the election of Donald trump. The metaphor behind the name entertains is the idea that someone who is destructive and unfair, is now ruling the USA. Donald being Satan, Heaven being the US.


 

 

The track itself is an ensemble of acoustic folk, with light instrumentation and the inclusion of a gospel singer, giving it the ultimate feel.

The song is available now, so be sure to check it out.

James Sayer – Sweet Baby Jane

James Sayer is a singer-songwriter, known throughout London for his session work & shows at the capital’s swankiest piano bars.

Hailing from Birmingham, James’ fascination and love of music began at a very young age when he learnt all things Rock n Roll through artists such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Elton John and Billy Joel. Jamesmoved to London in 2012 where he became a gigging musician, performing almost every night in piano bars, clubs and pubs. Eventually James met American producer, Alan Glass (Mis-Teeq, Kenny G), and they began working on James’ debut material. By early 2015, James had recorded an album’s worth of demo recordings, and they were passed on to five time Grammy winner and former member of The Doobie Brothers, Michael McDonald.

Blown away by his music, Michael then contacted James with the opportunity for a U.S. tour with BBC Radio 1 breakthrough act Ruen Brothers. During which time they supported George Ezra, played Coachella, and even snagged a live recording session with legendary producer Rick Rubin.

Later that year, James finished his first piece of solo work – ‘Taking Back My Love’. A pure representation of what James’ sound embodies – musicianship, passion & a bit of danceability! After uploading the track to BBC Introducing, The track was immediately picked up and made ‘Track of the Week’ by BBC 3 Counties. Mark Forrest also showed some love on his national BBC Introducing show, all of which contributed to two sold-out London launch shows.

The Follow-Up Sweet Baby Jane, see’s James at his vintage best. Influences range from the big band sound, to jazz & all out feel-good pop. The stand-out feature is James’ musical flair & love of songwriting. It’s a track that will leave the listener with a smile, as well as appealing to an audience of elitist music fans.

Live Dates

The Savoy, Beaufort Bar – 9th, 15th, 16th, 22nd, 30th December
Charing Cross Theatre, Players Bar – 3rd, 10th, 17th Decenber
The Ritz – New Year’s Day

Colin Clyne rides the ‘Merry Go Round’ – latest single on June 30th

Upbeat acoustic roots tune taken from album ‘The Never Ending Pageant’ – released 21st July

Scotland born folk singer-songwriter Colin Clyne, a versatile acoustic artist as comfortable spinning off an upbeat folk ditty as a heartrending dose of roots melancholy, returns this summer with excellent single ‘Merry Go Round’, taken from album ‘The Never Ending Pageant’.

The single, a straight, driving example of how to write an acoustic folk track with true momentum and subtle harmonies, mixes Clyne’s Scottish folk heritage with a touch of Americana in the vocal arrangements – thanks perhaps to 10 years spent living in California.

It’s the first song from the new LP, both released through Colin’s hometown label Fat Hippy Records, a burgeoning independent label who have also recently signed a deal with fellow Aberdonian – and runner up on The Voice USA – Terry McDermott.

The album was produced & Engineered by Grammy Award Winning Engineer Alan Sanderson (The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Ryan Adams, Burt Bacharach), and you can hear the first single here:

It’s not difficult to see why his fans include influential new music tastemakers such as Jim Gellatly, John McRuvie, STV and Chris Hawkins of BBC 6 Music – the reflection of an impressive independent career that has seen Clyne support The Red Hot Chilli Pipers (internationally acclaimed Scottish touring band) at a Hogmanay gig in front of 6,000 people, as well as appearing at Belladrum Festival, Edinburgh Festival, The Viper Room in L.A, and the Sacramento Highland Games which boasts over 20,000 people.

Another highlight saw him crowned ‘Best Acoustic Act’ at the San Diego Music Awards in 2011 and 2012 (previously winners include Jewel and Jason Mraz), as well as being named by NBC San Diego as one of San Diego’s top 12 Singer songwriters. That particular list contained an elite list of names, including Jewel, Tom Waits and the late Jim Croce.

It marks an incredible career trajectory for an artist whose first cd was rehearsed and written in the cold store of a ship that he used to work in many years ago. In fact, the lifelong ship worker still does stints at sea from time to time, enjoying the time and space as good song writing inspiration.

All very impressive from an artist who, having severed his fingers in his teens having hardly learned a chord, didn’t touch a guitar again until he was 23.

Single ‘Merry Go Round’ will be released June 30th from the album ‘The Never Ending Pageant’ out July 21st.
