Pimms Brooke’s unique style of music embraces everything about music! A Londoner who found herself drawn in the power of music decided to launch her career as singer inspired with the music of Amy Winehouse, Barbara Streisand, and Etta James. Being an independent singer and songwriter and music lover herself, she puts her mind and soul into all her tracks where listeners gave her songs a warm reception. This time, listeners can look forward to hearing to the newly launched EP. It’s a six-track EP with a mix of RnB, hip-hop, pop, rock, and soul music. The tracks included are Brighter Day, Base, Not Giving Up, Pain of Glass, and 7 Days, and Notes to Stranger.
.The eclectic selection in the album will capture an audience to keep listening to the tracks that will light up every bit of emotion. Anyone can have a little share of the streaming pie in a global scale, but Brooke’s music will inspire her audience with the way she sings each line that will make listeners sway, dance to the groove, tap, and sing their heart out to the beat of each song. The EP has something for everyone to listen to any time and any day.
Grafton Ash are a four-piece pop/folk band from Worcestershire, UK. With their strong vocal harmonies and fusion of electronic and acoustic styles, the bands live set projects a dark energy that combines well with their subtle, meaningful lyrics.
Their debut EP Avalanche was released in summer 2015 and quickly gained attention and backing of BBC Introducing. With the title track becoming ‘Track of the Week’ twice and the lads being invited to film a live session on the BBC Introducing stage at Nozstock.
They have joined FLYTE, Tom Walker & Outlya, supporting them all on their UK tours and despite being unsigned; the past few years have seen them share the stage with The Feeling, The Fratellis and Reef, playing sold out headline shows at the Birmingham O2 Institute & London O2 Academy Islington along the way.
The boys were recently invited to support James Blunt on his Afterlove World Tour at Arena Birmingham, stepping in for singer-songwriter Jamie Lawson in his absence.
Ben Schneid was born into a musical household and started playing drums as soon as he could walk. Constantly hearing the music of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Bruce Springsteen and more, Ben fostered a passion for rock and roll early on. Schneid first picked up a guitar at 10 wanting to be the next Jimi Hendrix and played and sang hours a day! He had once heard that Stevie Ray Vaughn often played until his fingers bled so he replicated that many times to build up a tenacious attitude toward his musicianship
Unfortunately, at the age of 15 Ben’s father passed away and he immediately turned to music for solace; It was always his salvation. He began to write songs because of the hurt he was feeling. Pretty soon after that Ben became obsessed with songwriting. He wrote constantly though high school and college fronting a handful of bands along the way. An early mentor, Blue Note President Bruce Lundvall, encouraged Ben to go to Nashville to hone his songwriting craft. After graduating college and spending 6 months in the songwriting capitol of the world, he formed his band FOXTRAX with former high school friend Jon Stenz (Drums) and his older brother Jared Stenz (Bass)
FOXTRAX released their debut EP, The Cabin to glowing reviews In 2016. The trio have appeared #1 on Apple’s iTunes Alternative Spotlight Chart, received pioneering support from Sirius XM’s Alt Nation and The Spectrum and featured on major Spotify playlists including Fresh Finds and Rock This. The band have toured North America twice opening to packed rooms for Barns Courtney and Wilderado respectively.
South East London based ‘With Sun’ are a music collective united by their love of storytelling and exploration. Lead by vocalist and songwriter Alice Hale, the group explore personal experiences as well as wider societal issues to produce music enriched in folk traditions yet infused with elements of soul. Having honed her craft at the Brit School alongside classmate Adele, Alice weaves a lyrical narrative that incites feeling, with audiences encouraged to sit back, relax and feel momentarily detached from the flurry of modern living. Supported by some of SE London’s most exciting musicians, With Sun will leave audiences with hope for the days ahead.
Despite only launching himself as a solo performer in July 2016, Will Whisson has introduced himself as one of the most exciting new talents to emerge from the UK recently thanks to the release of 2 successful EPs and a no-rest-for-the-wicked touring schedule.
Trading in his home, job and possessions for an old camper van and a life on the road, Will began his journey by busking on the streets of Belgium and has continued to build up his profile with a ferocious tenacity. 150 gigs, 10 countries and 2 EPs later, it’s safe to say he has already covered some distance, gaining support from fans and critics along the way.
Will’s most recent EP release, entitled ‘Nowhere Bound’ (produced by Peter Miles (Dry The River, Lonely the Brave) came out at the end of 2017 and can be heard here.
The music video for the title track of the EP, was shot immediately after the studio session and saw Will ride a bike 450 miles (the length of England), raising over £2000 for Cancer Research in the process:
With Record of the Day predicting – ‘he’ll be winning lots of new friends with this simply gorgeous blend of organic folk-tinged pop,’ Will continues his upward trajectory across Europe with a sound that is one of optimism, positivity and freedom.
