Artist or Band Name: 
Pink Lemon Music
Pink Lemon Music is a YouTube collaboration established in 2009 between UK-based singer Justin L. Fraser and German-based songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Ezy and his childhood friend and bassist/guitarist Joffrey.
Within a year 12 collaborative songs had been released on their former channel pinklemonmusic, building a solid fanbase with over 4.5k subscribers and 4 - 5 figure views per video. Plans were made to release a debut album but the project was forced into an indefinite hiatus when all three collaborators had to prioritize other aspects in their life. It wasn’t until 2017 when Ezy and Joffrey decided to give PLM another shot and sent new instrumentals Ezy had been working on to the UK, hoping to re-ignite the flame of Justin’s passion for music and to provide a framework for him to expose himself and his abilities and a singer and lyricist. His response was overwhelming and he immediately set himself to writing and recording. This worked as a catalyst for Ezy to enter new creative realms and further evolve the style of PLM to a more synth-oriented sound. The 2019 release of the debut album CLONES not only marks the 10th anniversary of PLM but also represents the first batch of songs that were written after the hiatus. Just like in back in 2009 they were being recorded in 2 bedrooms in 2 European countries. Out came 10 songs in the realms of Spacewave/Synthwave, a mix of nostalgia and modernity with strong references to the collaborator’s musical heroes from the 80’s.

The Lighthouse Commission - Angels & Aliens
Artist or Band Name: 
The Lighthouse Commission

The Lighthouse Commission is a Grand Rapids, Michigan band who play an eclectic mix of melodic and psychedelic songs written by guitarist/lead vocalist Jon Chuchvara, who has been playing with drummer Kevin Grant since 1993. Keyboardist/backing vocalist Jim Prange joined in 2004. 

The band are unconcerned with current trends in music, preferring instead to pursue their own sound- which reflects influences such as Pink Floyd, The Beatles, The Minutemen, Echo & The Bunnymen, The Grateful Dead, Beck, and The Velvet Underground.

"Angels & Aliens" is the band's debut studio album. For the initial sessions, the full band was recorded live at Soundfield Studios in Wyoming, Michigan by Pete Bass. The drums recorded at these sessions are the drums heard on the album; also, a few guitar parts from these sessions were used on the album. All other instrumental parts and all of the vocals are overdubs that were subsequently recorded by Jon Chuchvara and Jim Prange with ProTools. The album was mixed by Jon Chuchvara and mastered by Rob Savage.

Cory Hotline is a cosmic collision of funk, pop, rock and disco; the kind of band you might expect to see at an especially raucous dance party in space. Comprised of some of the best veterans of Toronto's live music scene, Cory Hotline is basically the love child of Joe Cocker and Bobby Womack backed by a "build your perfect space-disco fantasy band" generator - a synthesis of retro nostalgia and future-facing funk with the pop sense of Maroon 5 and Michael Jackson.

Music Submission, Scott Beaton

Artist or Band Name: 
Scott Beaton

Hailing from the small, seaside town of Gourock on the West coast of Scotland (& currently living in Doha), Scott has travelled well, playing his original music.  Personal triumphs include two nights at the world-famous Whisky A Go-Go in West Hollywood (supporting 60’s rockers Iron Butterfly), The Cavern Club in Liverpool & several television appearances in the UK.

Drawing on influences from Lennon/McCartney to Bowie, Scott’s music has a classic feel, with an experimental sonic twist.  

Growing up, his father (a self-confessed Beatles fanatic) exposed him to the music of the “Fab 4” & since then, Scott has wanted to little else. Despite having picked up a guitar at the age of 4 and trying to play along with his favourite records, it wasn’t until his teenage years that he truly immersed himself in The Beatles’ experimental album “Revolver” & subsequently more psychedelic music from the 1960’s & 70’s – which has shaped his sound in so many ways since.

It was also around this time that Scott began to experiment with recording. Being able to play drums, guitar, bass & keyboard meant that he could record a full-band track by himself & didn’t have to teach anyone else the parts to his songs – something that he has continued to do ever since.

Always experimenting, it’s exciting to hear just what musical ground this man will cover next…
