8:00PM EARLY SET: THE BASS BROTHERS
The journey that led Nate, Mark and Kieran to Nashville is a long one full of peaks and valleys. When the middle Bass, Mark, was only 11-years old it became evident to industry insiders that he was a child protégé. Before a sold out crowd in London’s Wembly arena, judges Eric Clapton, Steve Vai and Brian May awarded him the title of “Young Guitarist of the Year” and an endorsement from Fender. Very soon after his equally talented brothers, Nate and Kieran joined him on bass and drums. The pure magic of their vocals, fueled by what can only be described as the sibling connection, gave birth to the trio. Fourteen different labels immediately pursued the brothers, called Next Of Kin at the time. The winner of the bidding war was Universal and their career began.
In 1999 they embarked on the “Smash Hits Tour” through Europe with Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys and The Spice Girls. The next 13 years was a whirlwind of tours, recording and praise from the likes of Simon Cowell and Sharon Osbourne on their show the X Factor.
Hailing from Southwest of England Ruth grew up in a creative
environment and this has embedded a deep musicality in her; she was writing music before she knew how, and the music that she was creating came from her core.
After years of experimenting with her sound and performing as a jazz singer on the UK and Berlin circuits, Ruth’s sound materialised. Layered with electronic influences Ruth had picked up from her Bristol heritage,
her sound is a hybrid of old and new.
It holds traces of her influences encompassing the early soul sounds of Billie Holiday and Etta, as well as more recent obsessions like Submotion Orchestra, Jamie Woon, and Nikka Costa.
New America Press Release:Alex Bayly releases his debut EP New America on The LastRecords in 2017. Melancholic songs concerned with city living and existential questioning. Featuring strings from Rachel Lanky of The Last Dinosaur & Rosie Jones of The Worry Dolls.Prior to the release of New America Alex Bayly fronts Rock band Breakers and The Last Men (Universal Publishing). He was also touring guitarist for Gerard & the Watchmen and The Worry Dolls. New America sees an exploration into the darker melancholic side of his songwriting featuring the semi-satirical ‘New America’ pointing out the ‘paradise lost’ syndrome many people in the west are feeling in the wake of post Brexit Britain and the rise of the left worldwide. Helped along with the fatal attraction love song ‘Saint Valentine’ dissecting a obsessive compulsive relationship. The opening track ‘Lucky Cow’ paints the picture of gambling man asking for lucky cow or at least at least nice weather… ‘Bring me luck you beat, or sun at least’ He goes on to navigating life perhaps not often in the best way. ‘I crept in late at night, and stole your stash’.FFO Radiohead, Bon Iver & general doom and gloom.Quotes BBC 3 Counties Kelly Betts –’Wandering Song’ was our play listed as introducing track of the week July 2014′ Universal Publishing (On The Last Men) – From the boarders between London and the home counties comes The Last Men. A distinctive sounding indie band with shadows of progressive and psychedelic rock. The band is: Alex Bayly (lead guitar/vocals)…Their sound is not dissimilar to that of other contemporary indie acts such as Bombay Bicycle Club and Bloc Party. But their songs offer undertones of earlier progressive rock influences such as Supertramp with the Rhodes driven ‘Hold You There’, and hip hop flavoured grooves not a million miles away from The Roots or Gorillaz in songs such as ‘Fuzzy Cuzz’ and ‘The Cycle’. Herts and Essex Obsever (On The Last Men) – ‘The eponymous four-track effort, which is out now on iTunes, is a thoroughly polished vehicle for their songwriting and sets one heck of a benchmark for new unsigned acts to meet. With its lumbering, insistent guitar groove and rousing singalong chorus, opener Fuzzy Cuzz wouldn’t sound out of place as a summer hit on alternative radio, while vocalist Alex Bayly performs sublimely on the more atmospheric, laid-back Hold You There’
SORRY ABOUT SHAUN
Sorry About Shaun are an acoustic folk pop trio from Dorset, England. The band, made up of Geoff, Sam and Shaun formed in early 2017 and released their debut EP ‘Today’ in November of the same year.
