Music Submission, Jesslyn McCutcheon

Artist or Band Name: 
Jesslyn McCutcheon

Jesslyn McCutcheon is a Contemporary Christian singer/songwriter from King NC. Jesslyn released her first studio solo album project November 2019, "On The Edge." Jesslyn started writing at the age of 23 after she was home bound for 2 years due to severe depression. At the age of 26, she was diagnosed with having bipolar disorder which she refused to accept at the time. Jesslyn now is no longer afraid of who she is or what she has to face having this disorder. She hopes that her music will help inspire others who walk through the darkness at times in their life and come out on the other side. Jesslyn has been a Christian since the age of 6 but her faith was shattered when going through her early/mid 20's and having to face all that she did. She struggled for many years with unspeakable pain and wondered where was God during all of this? Could He even hear her? Jesslyn wants the world to know that it is only because of God she is where she is today and her music will express just that. It took Jesslyn awhile to finally find her place in this world but she is on a mission that nothing can stop her now from sharing her story and the message of how good God is.  Her second album 'RUN' will be releasing February 5, 2021.

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, Bowe

Bowe Beautiful People (Dutch singer songwriter)
Artist or Band Name: 
Bowe

Bowe (Boudewijn de Jong) started playing the piano at a very young age. When he was a teenager, the piano was replaced by a guitar. Because he disliked music lessons he decided to teach himself how to play. To do so, he picked up a guitar from a right handed friend and tried to strum his first chords. For Bowe this didn’t feel right at all, so he simply turned the instrument around and learned how to play upside down. Later he found out that this way of playing has both advantages and disadvantages. He decided to benefit as much as possible from the advantages and take the disadvantages for granted. His playing style has led to a unique approach to writing songs.

Moving through the Night was his debut album which was released in 2009. Bowe was influenced by a wide variety of artists such as The Rolling Stones and Crowded House. The album got very positive reviews in The Netherlands. Radio icon Frits Spits called it a remarkably good debut and website Musicfrom.nl described it as ‘John Mayer meets The Eagles’.   

His second album Nomansland was released in 2013. The album features twelve original tracks which were written by Bowe and his writing companion Ton Snijders and two monoPunk remixes.

Nomansland features special guest performances by Sandra St. Victor (The Family Stand and Prince) and Tollak Ollestad (Don Henley, Seal). Also many Dutch artists contributed such as Arnold van Dongen (Ilse DeLange), Jan Kooper (Doe Maar) and Thijs van Leer.

Bowe Has performed live with different musicians on Radio 1, Radio 2 and 3FM. His track ‘Tired of giving good things up was awarded best new track of the week on 3FM by Rob Stenders and Sander Hoogendoorn. Giel Beelen invited Bowe for his show in 2014 where Bowe played 2 songs including his second single Pretty Plain.

In 2016 Bowe released the track ‘Relax Relax Relax’ that was used in a commercial on Dutch TV and radio.

In 2017 his first single ‘Feel the Fire’ and its successor Sing for Love were released. Sing for love was DJ choice on NPO Radio 2.

In 2018 started making music with Dutch lyrics with producer Kevin Patrick. The first single Rum Cola ended up at more than 100 Spotify playlists. The second single premiered on NPO Radio 1.

In 2019 Bowe has released a single in Dutch that’s called ‘Laat me Leven’ with City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. He’s also released an English track ‘Ghosttown’. Both tracks feature Wesley Nuis on guitar.

In 2020 Bowe returned to Dutch with a new single that’s called ‘Voel!’. In summer 2020 Bowe released a remaster of his single Tired of giving good things up, that hit the charts in The Netherlands, being playlisted on the leading Dutch radio stations.

In November 2020 Bowe released an new track called Beautiful People that was co-written by Niels Geusebroek. Sandra St. Victor did a special guest performance.
