This Boy

This Boy
Danish multimedia artist This Boy. The music is unrelenting in its attempt to take your breath away. Angelic choirs atop frantic classic violins and gritty 8-bit beats, fusioned together with a new kind of disregard for type and genre

Sylvette

Sylvette
Sylvette, think the raw yearning melodies of Led Zeppelin and Jeff Buckley with bold sounds of Bjork and Aphex Twin all fused together by the disturbing poetry of Neutral Milk Hotel

Music Submission, Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate

Artist or Band Name: 
Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate
Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate are Malcolm Galloway (vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and producer) and Mark Gatland (bass, backing vocals, keyboards and co-producer), on their own, or with Kathryn Thomas (flute). Kathryn is the flautist of the award winning BBC New Generation Artists The Galliard Ensemble (wind quintet). Their music is eclectic, combining progressive/alt-rock, classical, experimental, electronic, and metal influences. They were recently highlighted as Prog Magazine Limelight feature artists. They are based in London, UK.
 
They stepped in at the last minute to replace an injured band on the main stage at Hard Rock Hell’s Prog Festival November 2017, one of the world’s leading indoor progressive rock events. Performing to over 1000 people, opening for Magnum, Focus and Carl Palmer, they were described by Hard Rock Hell magazine as ‘unlikely stars who stole the show’, and by eFestivals as the ‘highlight of the festival’. 
 
Their music has been recommended by Steve Hackett ("I particularly enjoyed this album and I thoroughly recommend it”) and won many awards including:-
 
• Prog Magazine Readers’ Poll Top 10 Unsigned Bands
• Beasties Rock Show's album of the year award (shared with Alice Cooper and Roger Waters)
• Bandwagon Network Radio Song Of The Year
• Banks Radio Australia's best album and best producer category shortlist
• Radio Wigwam Single Of The Year shortlist
• Metal Mayhem Radio band of the month 
• American Veterans Radio artist of the week
• NewEARS Album Of The Month award
 
Malcolm Galloway is also a contemporary classical/minimalist composer, whose 2019 release ‘Transitions’ was included in Sid Smith’s selection of the year’s best releases for Prog Magazine. 
 
“Vocals that drip with passion and longing, ethereal flute and the achingly bluesy low-down guitar. Unashamedly progressive in its outlook…  gets under your skin with its elegant music and heartfelt vocals… an engrossing musical experience. ‘Broken But Still Standing’ is a brilliantly perceptive and original work of art that enthralls with every listen. Taken as a whole it is an utterly immersive musical experience that will captivate and enlighten the listener, Hats Off Gentlemen Its Adequate has to be one of the most creative and innovative artists out there today.” Prog Radar

Music Submission, Sketch Club

Artist or Band Name: 
Sketch Club

Bio

Originally hailing from Dublin, Phillip Island and Brisbane, Sketch Club formed in Melbourne in 2009 via a classified ad left on an online forum for music nerds.

The band quickly settled on a song writing method that works best for the indie-rock outfit - 3 gentlemen making noise in a red velvet room until something good happens. And good would be some cinematic pop with a dark edge & a little swagger.

With songs from their 2017 EP “Primal Calls & Graceless Falls” finding their way on to radio rotation and Spotify’s New Music Friday (NL) playlist, the 3-piece continued to write, play and chin rub their way towards a new body of work.

This inspired time has resulted in the band’s debut LP “Departure Lounge Transmissions, coming soon in 2020!

Music Submission, Lunar Reverb

Artist or Band Name: 
Lunar Reverb

Lunar Reverb released an EP called Younger Days. All of the tracks are radio ready and include metadata. We are looking to get some airplay, features, gigs, or reviews wherever possible. Below I have included my band information, links to our social media, press, and links to our music below. I hope you dig it. Either way thanks for the time and consideration! Band Name: Lunar Reverb About Band: Lunar Reverb is a group of music loving people trying to create a modern fusion of classic rock, punk, blues, pop and groove. They are an indie alternative rock band from Arlington, TX looking to spread music and good vibes. The band includes Lizzy Casarez the lead singer, Joshua Hanson on guitar/vocals/aux instruments, Zack Bryant on bass, and Bryson Allsup on drums. Lunar Reverb draws inspiration from Led Zeppelin, Sublime, Jack White, The Black Keys, female musicians from the classic rock era-today, and blues to create a more modern raw classic rock sound for their debut Younger Days EP. They have hit the scene running with shows throughout the DFW area including The Old Cocktail Lounge, Dr Jeckyll's Beer Lab, Reno's Chop Shop, and The Ridglea. Lunar Reverb has been featured in podcasts, Voyage Dallas Hidden Gems, and Divide And Conquer Music. Younger Days Description: We went for a more raw rock sound for our EP. Our sound pulls from artists such as Led Zeppelin, The White Stripes, and Texas blues. The vibe of the album pulls from the struggles everyone goes through when they feel alone in their 20 something Younger Days. Einstein was written after Josh was going through the motions from job to job with the goal of playing music and feeling stuck in his ways. Purple Pistol of Love was originally a song Josh's dad wrote in his band. Josh rewrote the piece lyrically to coincide with his story of love. What Can You Do and 2020 both touch on the anxiety of a young adult in today's world. 2020 was a live jam Lizzy wrote lyrics to on the spot from a riff Josh was playing around with. We hope to get another studio recording of this track. Cautionary Tale was also lyrically written by Lizzy and Josh from a riff he was playing around with. Lizzy had a friend who was going through a sort of abusive relationship and pulled from that energy. Zack wrote Take Your Time all on his own. I feel like musically it compliments the meaning of What Can You Do. When the rain comes you need to weather it. In time the sun will shine again.

Music Submission, Noel Smyth

Artist or Band Name: 
Noel Smyth

Hello,

I hope you’re all doing well during these crazy times.  My name is Noel Smyth and I'm a performing, songwriting musician originally from a town outside New Haven, CT.  I have played in and around the Boston area for the past decade or so where I also teach English Language Arts to seventh and eighth graders. I just finished my fourth full-length album, 'Sugar Suspension'; a collection of 13 of my original songs.  This work includes a vast array of unique musicians living in and around the New England area.  Here is a link to a Boston Globe story about my music and my career!

Something I worked so hard on came out in April despite not having a show to promote it (unless my already rescheduled August 1st show at The Midway or August 13th show at The Burren capriciously and miraculously happen).  My music isn’t red or blue; it’s American.  I have songs on there about my love for New England, my daughter, songs of my suffering, songs of being merry, and songs where I just try to emulate Allen Ginsburg’s stream of consciousness.  Here is a link to a review in the MetroWest Daily News of my new album, "Sugar Suspension"!!

I know you guys are super busy, but if you get a chance, I’d greatly appreciate you taking the time to listen to my music.  I genuinely believe it will be a great fit for your station.  Read a Redline Roots Review that features one of my singles in their series, ‘Singled Out’ Here!!

If there’s any information I’m leaving out please let me know.  My music can be found virtually in any online music store.  If you’d prefer a physical CD, just let me know.  Otherwise, here are my WAV files as well as links to various locations where you can listen to my music and read about (potential) upcoming events.

Music Submission, Cypress

Artist or Band Name: 
Cypress

Cypress is the indie folk, singer-songwriter project of Ben Higginbotham. Born in Dallas but based in LA, Ben was inspired by his childhood spent glued to the piano and listening to the crooning voices of Texas singer-songwriter legends like Ruthie Foster and Lyle Lovett to pursue his passion for music early on. 

Shortly after graduating from Berklee College of Music in 2017, Ben created Cypress — a soulful, emotional solo project reflective of his personal and professional growth. Evoking artists like Ray LaMontagne, Ben Howard, and Hozier, Cypress’ indie folk/folk rock sound is rich and textured yet melodic and straightforward — often weaving lyric-driven stories of relationships, family and coming-of-age with a reflective and nostalgic tone. With crisp, powerful lyrics and relatable, universal themes underlying each song, Cypress’ music shines in its smooth approachability and ease of listening.

Released in November 2018, Cypress’ first EP A Fine Line was recorded and produced in Austin, TX by longtime collaborator Taylor Tatsch. Cypress’ most recent single “Take Me Back” was produced by Floyd Fuji and released in August 2020.
