Music Submission, Strawman & The Jackdaws

Artist or Band Name: 
Strawman & The Jackdaws

Strawman & the Jackdaws’ release debut EP ‘FOX’ on the 22nd January 2021

Strawman & the Jackdaws is a Dublin based musical project consisting of singer-songwriter Riccardo Ranzani, drummer Michael Reolon, guitarist Jacopo Stofler and keyboardist and saxophonist Rory Fleming. The anticipated debut EP ‘FOX’ will be released on the 22nd of January 2021, containing the anticipatory yet well-known singles ‘Precious Star’ and ‘Swallow’.

‘FOX’ is a bold opening statement from the band, highly representative of their eclectic nature, a constant within the EP tracks. This eclecticism is always harmonized by joyful and playful tones, even though accompanied by profound metaphors and imaginaries. Distant from simplicity and banality, the band’s first EP's outcome is a set of tracks that are simple to catch and interiorize because of the intense collaboration between the musicians. The EP explores the meanings of the concept and the experience of travelling, driven by the belief that no matter the effort it takes; there will always be something to rely on and have faith in, a symbolic light emerging from shadows.

It was recorded at Flaked Studio with Adam Redmond and Terzo Mondo Studio with Giampaolo Rossi and mastered by Robin Schmidt.

Ranging over-energetic, folkie lines, engaging indie-pop melodies, and distorted riffs, the band’s strength resides in their Live shows and in their ability to entertain the crowd. After performing on Irish, English and Italian stages, the band is already booked for shows and festivals around Europe and Russia in 2021.

Music Submission, Victoria Parks

Artist or Band Name: 
Victoria Parks

“From the wildly beautiful to the hilariously bizarre”

Victoria has been singing with a guitar from the age of fifteen. Her original songs range in genres. Victoria hit the Cleveland folk scene in 1974. Bob Gibson said of her, “she sounds like herself and writes great songs, don’t compare her to Joni Mitchell or Joan Baez. Don’t change anything.” Victoria has had more than forty years since writing her own brand of song.

Victoria is an honoree in the 2005 Great American Song Contest; 15th Annual Mid Atlantic Contest Category Winner (humorous); 2002 Florida Folk Festival Song Contest performer; Napa Valley Folk Festival song contest winner. She has released three albums Sure Feels Like Home (1995), Wild English Rose (2003), and Duhmocracy (2007). Wild English Rose landed #35 in the 2003 FolkDJ top 200 folk albums of 2003. Her songs are unique, beautiful and funny. She tries not to make you cry but, be forewarned, she may. Her 2007 release, Duhmocracy, will certainly make people laugh. It was nominated “best political album” at the 2009 Just Plain Folks Awards, while her song Blame the Cows garnered a “best political song” nomination. Sometimes VIctoria writes a pop song too. She draws her song material from simple emotion, life experience, or crazy news. You just never know what she’ll conjure up under that wildly curly head of hair. It could be a wildly beautiful ballad or just plain hilarious.
