Music Submission, Two Hats Blues Band

Artist or Band Name: 
Two Hats Blues Band

The concept of the Two Hats Blues Band came to Rambling Rob in a vision.

Lying in that hospital in Rovaniemi, he had seen it all - a blues band like no other; 

combining slide fingerpicking guitar mastery with porch stomping foot 

percussion, wailing blues harp and thumping double bass. 

Three of them, howling in harmony, swirling echoes of country, bluegrass, gospel 

and R & B, creating an evocative vocal sound all of their own. 

Using old, primitive tools from an era before electricity took hold, channeling

everything that came from the blues, back into the blues. 

From the Mississippi to the Irwell, strange currents and tides flow through these 

songs. Feelings of euphoria and desolation, soaking and reviving dusty old ideas, 

making them shimmer in the sunshine stolen from other lands, other times.

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.
