Ice Chrystalls

Ice Chrystalls amazing band from Essex (UK) have been compared to the likes of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Bangles & The GoGo's, inspirations include REM, Avril Lavigne, Demi Lovato & Evanescence, they forge their own style of genre and put a stamp on their own sound which is very much their own, i would describe it as a new dimension in Alternative Acoustic Indie-Pop.

The band consists of Deanna Christall & Emily Ince - (Vocals), Laura Yapp - (Bass), Derrick Yapp & Callum Gutteridge - (Guitars)

They have played alot of variety shows & recorded their own video demo's for every song they have covered which helped them to get coverage and their foot in the door, it came to a point where they wanted more and to pursue their musical ambitions and they together came up with the name Ice Chrystall's.

In Feb 2012 Deanna, Emily and Derrick started writing songs of their own which included 'Beat' which was the first one and a live demo was recorded and uploaded to YouTube other originals include 'Darkness', 'Silence', 'Shadows', 'Verity', 'Stronger', 'Wonderland', 'City Lights' and 'One Day'.

Currently No1 in their local alternative following in excess of 13,00 on the internet, their YouTube video's include 'Silence' & Unplugged versions of original songs 'Beat', 'City Lights', 'Silence' and 'Stronger' also various covers such as 'Untouched' (The Veronicas), 'Skyscraper' (Demi Lovato), 'I Write Sins' (Panic At The Disco), 'Little Things' (One Direction), 'Here Without You' (3 Doors Down) and 'Valerie' (Amy Winehouse).

'Beat' & 'Wonderland' have received radio airplay on several internet radio shows, since then they have gained much radio attention on Museboat, Slip Stream, Rocker's Dive, Stork's Nest, John's Rock Show, Breakout Radio amongst others.

There music is enchanting and spellbinding pure acoustic indie-pop galore full of creative personalised songs that are full of charisma and charm with gritty guitars, each song has beautiful melodies and wonderful hamonies which result in spectatular vocal strengths.

They are making their own impact on the music scene i love musicians who are passionate about song writing and performing they are a rare gem in my eyes, come and join them on this exciting journey as they have a bright 2013 ahead indeed.

Aylin Eser

Aylin Eser is a brand new Indie band from Melbourne Australia with combined talents of Aylin Eser a singer with charming & charismatic, smooth silky vocals & Will Larsen an award winning producer, composer & multi-instrumentalist , together they write & create catchy melodic pop somewhere between Sara Bareilles & Rumer, Aylin's lyrical poetry is as fascinating as it is meaningful finds it's way amongst Will's harmious orchestral touches & pop sensibility, their EP is currently available on ITunes.

Their chemistry is pure gold their track entitled 'Arrows of Desire' could be straight out of a Bond Movie Theme, their music really stands out it is pure listening pleasure they break the mould so to speak.

Radio Stations have been giving their music a spin including: Butterflies Radio, Traxx Radio, Ultimate Jamz Radio & others, their songs include 'Dolls & Trolls', 'One More Chance', 'Dancing Shoes'.

They remind me Norah Jones, Joan Baez & Judy Collins but with their own spellbinding & enchanting stamp on it, their influences are real soulful singers with depth & richness to their sound they include: Etta James, Nina Simone, 60's/early 70's, John Lennon a wonderful combination of inspirations, they got chatting about music one day & have been together ever since & what a great duo it has creating a great team of two musicians brought together by their passion for writing & making music.

They love having super connections with their fans this is extremely important, artists need to share their work & be inspired by the people around them in order for them to keep creating.

Kill For Company

Kill For Company are not your usual indie/rock duo they have you hooked from start to finish with their darkly delicious gritty grunge sound.
 They are currently signed to Manchester Independent Label Longevity Records with an exciting future & big plans ahead, Kill For Company is: Michael Banfield - (Vocals/Guibass) & Mark O'Donoughue - (Drums), they are deeply infectious with their hard hitting guitar riffs and mesmerizing dark vocals they have already been favoured by local radio stations.

They produce raw, abrasive music with plenty of gritty distorted guitar it showcases everything that the band is about.
Their brand new 2nd EP entitled 'Alternative To Living will be released alongside an accompanying music video on the 20th April, they have been confirmed to play South Manchester's best new music festival on the 21st June 'Headliner Festival' it's one of the best music festival's in South Manchester taking place in Stockport.

Kill For Company will also be appearing at LakeFest voted one of the 10 best new UK Festival's with the likes of Ocean Colour Scene, The Beat, The Leveller's taking place on the 9th & 11th August.

The Guibass was created by Michael Banfield in essence a lead guitar with two bass strings at the low end re-jig the pick ups, adjust the strings & then split the signal through a bass & lead amp so the GuiBass was born, surprisingly you could get a really full sound in the studio & at live showcases, this new instrument gave them freedom to experiment.

Their music is pure class straight out of the heart of Manchester home of the best music scene need I say more, think Joy Division mixed with dark undertones of The Artic Monkey's.
 They have created their own distinctive licious sound that is insanely addictive, their first EP was LoFi Alternative Rock which sold out very quickly & brought the duo to the attention of local radio stations such as: M/cr Radio Online, 4Q Magazine, Rainy Skies Magazine, Salford City Radio & Michelle Hussey at BBC Introducing, their second EP promises to have a more progressive experimental feel to it as it does just that they have put their own stamp on their licious sound, they bring together the best of unique music with a simultaneously attitude they are going to be massive.

Opening track 'Alternative To Living' is worth remembering as the grungy guitar & Mike's vocal's provides the perfect combination that keeps you interested.
 'Black & White' is by far the most laid back track on the EP, 'Push' is raw but not to much in your face it builds up throughtout before gathering pace & delivering a punch that knocks you for six.
 Alternative To Living is pure experiemental it pushes your buttons throughtout & your left craving for more, you'll have their songs hitting repeat.

I love this band they make sure that the listener's ears are totally engrossed their music is hard to ignore when you stop listening you get withdrawal symptoms, they have a box of tricks ready to unleash onto the listener, it's what you would expect from a band with a 'Guibass' a guitar/bass hybrid that was designed & made by it's owner.

I really suggest that you go & buy their music, it will be the best thing you have bought this year & it's probably the best thing you will listen too by far so what you waiting for.
