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

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.

KARMA – The debut single by RYA

“If karma doesn’t hit you first then I bloody will.”

Bursting with pure British pop, the debut single Karma by RYA is an ode to the millennial generation. Karma is dripping with attitude and filled with pop culture references, whilst the cutting lyrics certainly pack a punch. The track is produced by Jack Gourlay, a gold and platinum record certified songwriter and producer with over 10 million streams on Spotify. RYA says:

“I went through a messy break-up and spent a lot of time feeling sad, then I suddenly thought – you’re in control of your emotions and you deserve to feel better about yourself. I ended up writing this super sassy chorus and the rest of the song developed around it. Then after I finished writing it I felt great, I felt confident, and I felt like me again.”

RYA is a female singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Berkshire. Having learnt piano from a young age, she then self-taught guitar and ukulele. RYA moved to London to study medicine, and during this time has learnt the drums and built up a catalogue of gigs, including CroCroLand festival and Pop Brixton.
