It is only recently however that her career has begun to take flight after being spotted by top producer David Ezra, who has worked with X Factor finalists ‘Reggie and Bollie’ who have had over 4 million hits on YouTube, David says “when I came across Chey’s demo I loved her voice and just had to invite her to my studio in London, I brought in Shakil Hussain, a songwriter also from London to join us and within one day we had written and recorded Dirty Love.”

 

Dirty Love takes a unique view upon a love affair where the woman is in total control of what happens next. Speaking on the track Chey says “I wanted this song to emphasise the power of a woman, and how she uses her sexuality to get what she wants.” Having had previous support from Chris Needs MBE (BBC Wales), Chey hopes her new single will captivate audiences.

 

 

Dirty Love is set for official release on January 20th 2017, and available for pre-order December 23 on ITunes, Spotify and Tidal.

Richie Ramone is famed for his time spent drumming for the iconic New York City rock band the Ramones. He spent almost five frenzied years, between 1983 and 1987, charging his way around the world; playing over 500 shows, whilst recording three albums. Praised by Joey Ramone for putting ‘the spirit back into the band’, Richie was the only Ramones drummer to be credited as the sole composer and writer of six Ramones songs.

 

In 2013, Richie Ramone catapulted back onto the rock’n’roll music scene with the release of solo debut album: ‘Entitled’. He now continues to uproot modern music culture with Cellophane’ – a stripped down, raw rock album; fully loaded with gravelly vocals, catchy guitar riffs and 80’s punk-rock vigour.

 

Aggressively catchy, ‘Cellophane’s’ powerful lead single ‘I Fix This’ perfectly reflects the ‘take no bollocks’ pure-punk attitude of the album. Yet showcasing Richie’s musical versatility – the heartfelt ‘I’m Not Ready’ delivers a more personal, toned-down melody. Other noteworthy tracks include Depeche Mode cover ‘Enjoy the Silence’ and ‘Pretty Poison’, which was penned by Richie during the 1980’s.

 

Watch the video for ‘I Fix This’ Here:

 

“Attack of the Animal Boy! World Tour” is an un-missable event for fans of the Ramones, Nirvana, Sex Pistols and Green Day. Throughout the shows Richie Ramone will be accompanied by his steadfast band of Rock’n’Roll veterans: lead guitarist Ronnie Simmons; bassist and vocalist Clare Misstake, and drummer/rhythm guitar player Ben Reagan.

IndieMinded reveal Reverieme’s One For Sorrow

Reverieme is Louise Connell, an artist who hails from the quaint Scottish market town of Airdrie.

A secondary school teacher who is as passionate about her artistic output as she is her chosen profession. While many of her colleagues are currently balancing the pressures of exam season with the longing for the summer holidays, Reverieme is also working towards the release of her long-awaited album Straw Woman.
Inspired by the myriad books, films and records she has devoured throughout her life, she creates captivating, haunting songs that offer an intriguing glimpse of an inquisitive mind and a unique view of the world around her.

Having supported Gotye, Newton Faulkner and Emmy The Great on tour, Reverieme has already caught the attention of some of the industry’s most acclaimed artists.

After building a reputation as a musical innovator on her first two albums, 2010’s Melodies and 2013’s With Up So Floating, last year’s acoustic EP Or Else The Light set hearts fluttering with it’s intrinsic beauty and flawless vocal delivery.

Having absorbed the musical influence of such diverse artists as Neko Case, Of Montreal, Arcade Fire and Amanda Palmer along with many others, she also creates all of her own artwork, photography and videos for each release. An artist in charge of every aspect of her project, Reverieme is an innovator to the very core.

Channelling her creativity in the build up to the album release, she has launched a Pledge campaign which gives fans and new listeners a chance to engage with every aspect of her new release. From one-off illustrations to picture books, her Pledge campaign showcases the breadth of her artistry. A perfect example is the powerful video for the song Plankton, which gained many plaudits and was accompanied by a fascinating essay explaining the origins of both the song and the video.

Her evident skill with language is more than matched by her ability to pair it with beautiful melodies to create stunning, timeless songs, the meaning of which is very much left to the listener.

The release of Golem, which has been premiered by Louder Than War, heads up the release on July 1. Having already won loyal fans at BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 6 (including Lauren Laverne) and Radio X, Reverieme is excited to finally unveil Straw Woman.

Norwegian pop singer Line Mari releases catchy and crisp single ‘Crush’

Hailing from Norway, fresh pop singer Line Mari releases this rock-infused pop song set to appear on her upcoming album.

Featuring some gorgeous vocals and crisp production, ‘Crush’ was recorded with the help of producer Rob Cass who has worked with the likes of Robbie Williams, Will Young and Paloma Faith.

Stream the song here:

https://soundcloud.com/line-mari/crush-noa3y1601010/s-8nu9i

Having played guitar and piano since the age of 10, Line has long had a passion for music, her mother often telling her she could feel her dancing in the womb. She started writing her own songs and performing to people as a late teenager, although she was very shy at first. However, this shyness also helped to fuel her songwriting, making her lyrics more personal and introspective.

Releasing her debut EP Fly High Fly Low in 2014, Line has already gained some recognition in Norway, her EP receiving acclaim from critics including a top score of 6 from Utropia. Her single ‘Why do I Cry’ was even played on national radio.

A highly versatile musician, Line not only sings and writes her own music, she also plays a number of instruments include guitar, piano and harmonica (she is currently also learning to play the fiddle). She has a keen interest in vintage music and vintage guitars and owns several custom made guitars and her own custom-made pedal-board.

Line was born in Tromsø, also living for some time in Svalbard, one of the most Northerly inhabited places in the world. As a child, she grew up regularly witnessing the beauty of the Northern Lights, as well as once having a close encounter with a polar bear whilst at Kindergarten.

Having already played a gig in Bedford and recorded in London, the singer is now looking to spread word of her talents to the UK.

Line Mari’s voice is just indescribably amazing” –  Elza Böröndy, Utropia

Upbeat new single ‘Diggin’ it Deep Down’ from Norell & The Dub Factory

Norell and The Dub Factory have a deep rooted love of upbeat, positive vibes highlighted by their exciting new single ‘Diggin’ it Deep Down’, which is set for a release of mid June – right in time for summer.

The spirit of their feel-good sound combines the roots of the band members’ Italian heritage including the enigmatic vocal passion of Norell with the superb guitar licks of Valter Vincenti, who is also working with the reggae star, Alborosie.

It is perhaps the unique blend of cultures that most deeply reflects why this 5 piece feel so many should end up ‘diggin’’ their new track, with members from Italy, Japan and the UK all playing their part.

Our key aim,’ explains Norell, ‘Is to deliver a simple message with clear and direct lyrics to connect immediately with the listener. Our connection with fans is very important to us giving them music that reflects  life experiences creating a real and strong bond with our fans and those who we hope discover our music.

We want to make people feel like dancing and that is why we believe our live set is so important ,’ Eleonora continues , ‘Without losing the idea of sharing important messages and concepts through our songs, if people dance to our music first , they will then we feel discover a meaning and a story behind the grooves. In addition, we believe strongly in supporting the LGBT community and i guess due to the cultural mix within the band feel strongly about standing up  for human rights causes, children’s rights and so on, which may be unusual for what many may think is a pop band.

The group’s powerful vocals and infectious beats stem from an array of different influences including the likes of Joss Stone, Janis Joplin and Damian Marley. They also take heavy influence from Belgian soul/reggae artist Selah Sue, who at some stage they would love to try and support.

Norell & The Dub Factory could be one of the unsigned artists to watch out for this summer, so check them live, and get to know them better through their tantalising new song, ‘Diggin’ it Deep Down’.

‘Diggin’ it Deep Down’ is out 15th June
