Music Submission, Avalon Highway

Artist or Band Name: 
Avalon Highway

Following their carefree summer single ‘Hungover In The Sun’, Mike Batt’s latest discovery - Roots band AVALON HIGHWAY are back with their newest track ‘Hope We Don’t Die Young’. This new single gives us an insight to the bands rockier side with its catchy, indie, singalong feel.

The band who all hail from near Bath, consists of singer/guitarist Joe Wiliams, lead guitarist Sam Jellyman, drummer Louis Peard, keyboardist Lewis Martin and bassist Gar Miller. The band have been recording their newest material at Rockfield Studios alongside Mike Batt and Joe Williams to create their crisp and loveable American-influenced, rock/americana sound. 

Mike Batt says “There’s something infectious about this band. Every time I’ve seen them live, they’ve had the whole audience up singing along and dancing. They are like a baby stadium band, even if they are only playing in a pub.” 

Having started out as favourites in around Bath and Bristol, Avalon Highway are looking ahead to get on the road in 2020.

Music Submission, Klara McDonnell

Artist or Band Name: 
Klara McDonnell

She’s an Irish singer/songwriter, an actress, and she’s got her fingers in as many creative pies as she can find – some of which enrich her bank account, and some that simply enrich her creative soul. Over the last decade, she has been one of Ireland’s busiest life drawing models, posing for artists throughout the country. 

Her new single “Dusty Glitter” is a shuffling country romp with production from frequent collaborators Beardfire Music Production Studio. 

The song appears to take itself less seriously than 2019’s previous singles the more sombre “Sinking Unknowing” and “Wasted”, both of which gained her a new support network at independent radio in Ireland and further afield – as well as stellar reviews. 

While the lyrics are tongue-in-cheek and the delivery is playful, there’s a certain vulnerability and sadness beneath the bubbly banjo backdrop. 

Klara explains, “lyrics like I’m not inclined to shine, like the gems you’re used to, refer to people setting certain standards and putting conditions on who they would start a relationship with. The protagonist of the song is a wild woman who thinks she is leading a man whom she thinks is too good for her astray. “

“I’ll take your plans, and tear them all apart”, she sings in the song’s chorus – and you get the feeling that this sentence could be Klara’s mission statement, applicable to anyone who thinks they’re in the driver seat when it comes to her career.
