Retrospective: Albums Of The Year 2016

There has been a hell of a lot going on in the music world this year and it's certainly been one of loss and upset.  We've lost many big names throughout 2016 and it's been such a massive shock to the industry that it's left us wondering if we're in some sort of alternative universe. … Continue reading Retrospective: Albums Of The Year 2016

Review – Falling EP by Tom Speight

Following on from our recent interview with Tom Speight, it's only right and proper that we review the ep in question and give our thoughts on it. This is Tom's second ep of 2016 after the very successful Little Love ep which was released earlier this year.  Falling seems to be heading in the right direction in terms … Continue reading Review – Falling EP by Tom Speight

Review – Get Involved EP by Josh Robins

I am very lucky in many respects.  I get to meet and chat to lots of musicians and it's great.

Review – The Taste of Mark Morriss by Mark Morriss

If I am totally honest and upfront about it, this is actually a review I said I wouldn't write.  I always like to think of myself and completely unbiased when it comes to writing about an album or a song.  If I don’t like something I will say so, no matter who the artist in … Continue reading Review – The Taste of Mark Morriss by Mark Morriss
