Music Submission, The Legendary Ten Seconds

Artist or Band Name: 
The Legendary Ten Seconds

The Legendary Ten Seconds, August 2019

The Legendary Ten Seconds started off as the solo music project of Ian Churchward during the time when he was the lead guitar player of The Morrisons who were featured on John Peel's radio one show back in 1987. In 2013 Lord Zarquon joined Ian's music project and since then the line up has gradually expanded and various guest musician's and vocalists have helped out in the recording studio.

Most notably The Legendary Ten Seconds have recorded many critically acclaimed English folk rock albums which chronicle the Wars of the Roses and the life and times of Richard III in England during the late fifteenth century. The albums are available on Amazon and itunes and the band have donated money to a scoliosis charity from some of the income generated from the sale of their music. The CD versions of the albums are available via the Richard III Society in the UK.

In 2018 the band recorded the Mer de Mort album which was commissioned by the Mortimer History Society to commemorate the Society's tenth anniversary. It is a historically accurate album of songs which chronicles the story of the significantly important Mortimer medieval family from their roots in Normandy prior to the battle of Hastings and into the 15th century.

The band have performed several concerts for the Richard III Society including one for the USA branch in Denver last year. Ian Churchward has also published a book about the music of The Legendary Ten Seconds which is called Songs About Richard III and is available from Amazon.

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.

Colby Dean Bio

Born in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Colby Dean comes from the honest roots of Western Montana. He picked up guitar at age 13, and instantly began composing original material. Dean first recorded his songs with a single microphone, filmed home-made music videos, and distributed the copies to schoolmates. In his early days, Dean learned how to pick guitar, banjo, mandolin, and also became proficient in ukulele, bass, and drums.

At age 18, Colby Dean moved to Nashville, Tennessee. There he became inspired by the legendary songwriters in the city. Dean spent his time in Music City performing, co-writing, and eventually recording and releasing his own original music.

Now with no home address, music has taken Dean through tours of Europe, Southeast Asia, North America, while also performing in the Caribbean and Coral Seas. His debut release, ‘Colby Dean EP’, has received radio airplay throughout the Philippines, United States, United Kingdom, and Australia. Dean was just 12 days old when he took his first road trip, and is everyday grateful for the journey that is music.

This is a new alternative folk/rock release from award-winning alt-rocker, Jordan Paul.  I think it would be a great fit on the station!

Some info on the record and artist:

With symbolic inspiration from English poet William Blake’s late 18th century works — including The Four Zoas — Jordan Paul’s new EP, “Night Moon,” is the Canadian alt-rocker’s self-professed sonic probe into the seemingly opposing yet harmonious forces that encompass all things ‘human nature.’

“Night Moon is about the nature of every being,” he reflects, “and the complex interplay of elements that fuse together to form the whole of all that is within and without us.

“It is the contrast of dark and light… Of life and death… Of every opposing force that must exist in twisted harmony as all things seek homeostasis and balance at all times.”

So far, “Night Moon” has proven ultimate evolution in Jordan Paul’s distinctive style. His music boasts notes of delicate, spacious, exploratory alt. folk/rock — all with a shadowy edge.  Paul has been dubbed “Canada’s Jeff Buckley” by three-time GRAMMY Award-winning producer Chris Birkett (Led Zeppelin, Talking Heads, Buffy Sainte-Marie). Sleeping Bag Studios’ Jeremy Gladstone has mused he’d be the result “if Queen, Mimicking Birds, Radiohead and Led Zeppelin had a beautiful love child.”

As a songwriter, he has worked with 18 GRAMMY Award-winning producer James Sanger (U2, Dido, Phil Collins), Darryl James of The Strumbellas (Double Platinum in Canada; Gold in USA and Australia), Matt Lipscombe (Lily Frost, Bran Van 3000), Amanda Mabro (Ron Sexsmith), Martin Kerr (#1 in Canada), Khalid Yassein (Wild Rivers), Chris Cargnello, and more. His music has received notable sync placements including The CW’s ‘The Secret Circle,’ Shaw TV’s ‘When Paintings Come Alive,’ MTV's 'Real World,’  BBC Canada’s ‘Orphan Black,’ and LaJoie De Vie's short-film ‘Best Budz.’  

Paul's forthcoming studio record, “Already Gone” will ultimately feature 11 original songs, including “Night Moon.” The album was recorded at Jon Anderson’s (Aidan Knight, Andy Shauf, Said The Whale) Protection Island Studios in Maple Ridge, BC and mastered by Noah Mintz (Marcy Playground, Broken Social Scene, Matt Mays).

Thank you for your time and consideration,

Jordan Paul
