Music Submission, Chev Chevin

Artist or Band Name: 
Chev Chevin

Chev Chevin is a music project initiated by me, Max Kraft and Jonas Eckhardt - both based in Leipzig, Germany.

With our love for Soul, Art-Rock and Contemporary Pop music, we don't stick to a single genre, but always try to combine various styles we are influenced by and trained at. So not only when playing live, the producer duo expands to a large orchestration, including instruments like horns, strings and synthesizers.

Music Submission, RH2

RH2 - Like Nobody's Around
Artist or Band Name: 
RH2

Dylan Jackson Scott is a man on a journey. His band, RH2 is music with a rare sort of honesty and ambition. “I want people to know that I care about them,” says Dylan, plainly. “For me it’s musical and cultural. I don’t want to make a difference for the sake of shaping culture, I want to do it because it’s desperate for oxygen.” While his past endeavors, including New Jersey’s Young Rising Sons and Los Angeles-based Rad Horror, created their own sonic ripples and racked up Spotify plays, now with songs like the confessional “In My Head”, RH2 is the sound of an artist coming into his own.

“This is the first time I’ve felt that I could say everything I wanted to and needed to say as a person and a songwriter,” Dylan admits. “The songs are my truth without any sort of apology.” Also known as a songwriter and producer for the likes of Halsey and many others, Dylan and RH2 is intent on crafting anthems and sharing insight to the modern generation.

“I’m inspired by people like Bob Dylan, Kurt Cobain, Lou Reed and more recent artists like, Kanye West and Jay- Z,” says Dylan. “I’m inspired by art, by literature, and by people I heavily identify with. The ones who struggled with mental illness and a troubled youth, but were incredibly prolific and created great art in spite of themselves and the harsh limitations they faced along the way. I know I have something to say, but I want it to be from my perspective, rolling off of my own tongue. RH2 is my vehicle for that.”

Music Submission, Davor Jordanovski

Davor Jordanovski
Artist or Band Name: 
Davor Jordanovski

Davor Jordanovski has always known music would be his life; indeed, from his earliest recollection, it was his only choice. Fortunately, he was able to seriously pursue this path at the University of Music Arts (Saints Kiril & Metodij University) in Skopje. And while most musicians learn their trade by first listening to rock’n’roll records and then joining rock bands, DAVOR honed his already impressive skills in a full-blown 150-piece symphonic orchestra. By the time he was in his teens, he was already the featured keyboard player with Macedonian National TV network’s Big Band Orchestra, writing, arranging, performing and playing for some of the biggest and best-known musical acts in the country. This exceptional opportunity was not wasted on this extraordinary musician who was born with a depth of talent far beyond the range of many other artists.

DAVOR’s musical training was traditional: classical followed by pop and jazz, then branching out into film, mood, jazz fusion, ambient, dance, groove, symphonic, contemporary jazz and R&B. Now adeptly accomplished in all musical genres, DAVOR’s original compositions and arrangements display a rich level of sophistication while remaining simply powerful — yet never powerfully simplistic — and often served with wit and humour, as befitting the artist himself.

DAVOR grew up in Macedonia and has since made Canada his home, though he did spend a few years in Libya when he was a young child. The early impressions of living in a desert culture stayed with him as he grew and studied in his hometown of Skopje, where he was influenced by music from the Balkans and surrounding European regions. The synthesis of musical cultures has evolved into a unique style of world fusion, which successfully unifies an infinite range of disparate and varied sounds, instruments, arrangements and sensibilities.

When we decided to record a second album we set out two conditions.

  1. We were making for an audience and not just for us as a vanity project

  2. It had to have a story and a point and not just a pile of meaningless songs.

Three years ago a close friend of the band, who was 18 at the time, came out as gay to his mum and dad with the latter being unable to accept his son's choice. As a consequence the son attempted suicide several times before eventually being sectioned. It struck a chord with The Screens that family could be divided by a choice one member had no control over and the other suddenly felt a compulsion to put their opinions of sexuality ahead of their bond to their own flesh and blood. It became the beginning of a story that The Screens developed and which they also turned in a short novel called The Boy Who Waved At Trains.

The album of songs is a journey of a boy born in post war London who, as a teenager, discovers he is gay and is thrown out by his alcoholic dad. The boys is forced into a life of male prostitution, drugs, seedy sex parties, brutality......Its not a pleasant story but it highlights what life as a gay man during the sixties would have been.

As big fans of Quadrophenia, and Tommy we wanted to write the album so each song, in chronological order, tells a specific stage of the boys life and that might one day be the basis of an interesting film.

The first condition for making the album was that an audience wanted it and it wouldn't be a vanity project for us so we ran a Kickstarter campaign and invite people to pre order the album on vinyl and CD before we made it. We were relieved enough people stumped up the cash and it meant we could make it.

We plan to delay the album being put on Spotify because The Screens think it detracts from sales as well as radio. The Screens will eventually put the entire album on there but after radio stations have the option to play it.

So that's it. The album is out on 31stMarch 2020. We will service radio stations with a WAV or MP3 of The Boy Who Waved At Trains a week before.

If any DJ's want personal idents from the band please message the office at messagethescreens@gmail.com

Thanks
