Tayala from Hull

Here’s a great music video for Stay by Tayala filmed by ShootJMoore in Hull.

Hull band Tayala are rising stars of the City of Culture. I’ve already featured their collaboration with Nineties Boy and Endoflevelbaddie. Now they deserve a recommendation of their own. Every time I’ve seen them in an intimate gig like The Sesh or on an open air festival stage. They stand out and I recommend that any venue or event should book them and put them high on the bill. Contact the band by email: info@tayala.com.

Treason Kings

One of the best live bands I’ve seen are releasing tunes for your enjoyment. The release date is 23rd December 2013. I saw them at the 360 club in Leeds and had to tell them how impressed I was. I now have the T’shirt and have had the pleasure of interviewing Treason Kings on the radio. I suggest you check them out live, they’re one hell of an act.

KARI is an outstanding creator

KARI is an outstanding composer and performer, with bags of talent. Her music transcends boundaries and crosses genres, surely she is destined for international success.580562_10151727984826518_2012881947_n

KARI aka Kari Amirian is in the final steps of producing her second album. She has co-produced it with the very gifted Jon Headly from Modo Stare.

When KARI played live in session on my BBC Introducing West Yorkshire show. It was clear that I was in the presence of greatness. A classically educated musician, with a unique contemporary style, strong indie-pop vocal melodies and minimal, experimental, electronic soundscapes. Kari’s music is deeply thoughtful, beautiful and spiritual, with outstanding arrangements and orchestration.

In other-words KARI is one to watch.

Ming City Rockers

Today’s recommendation is Ming City Rockers one of the very few bands to grab my attention from Immingham in Lincolnshire. The band consists of a scruffy bunch of rock’n’rollers named; Clancy Jones on Rhythm Guitar, vocals & harmonica, Morely Adams on Lead Guitar & backing vocals, Doc Ashton on the drums and  Jakki Walsh on bass guitar.

They are definitely a band you have to see live to fully appreciate their craft. I first saw them several months ago at The Sesh which is a long standing and outstanding new bands night in Hull, just over the bridge for the band (you should check it out on a Tuesday night, it’s free). They blew me away with their on stage energy. They have an an old fashioned punk style, but they have elements in it that are unmistakably individual to them.

I’ve been playing them since on the BBC Introducing Humberside, but unfortunately there has only been a couple of tracks that Ofcom rules allow us to play onair (language issues & rudeez). So this one is just for my blog:

 

They have a good quality website with all the gigs on: http://www.mingcityrockers.co.uk/ Go and see them live.

Endoflevelbaddie should be massive

Endoflevelbaddie is a DJ & producer who evolved into the live band of choice for many festivals. Highlights for the band include:

LIVE HEADLINE PERFORMANCE ON ZANE LOWE & HUW STEPHENS RADIO 1 TAKE OVER, LIVE DJ WARM-UP SET FOR PETE TONG, PLAYED THE LEEDS & READING FESTIVAL, PLAYED HEADLINE SLOTS AT BEACH BREAK LIVE, KENDAL CALLING, GALTRES, FREEDOM FESTIVAL AND HAD BBC RADIO 1 AND 1XTRA AIRPLAY

Baddie has hand picked a band of masked stage masters, in the shape of: MC/Hypeman ‘PLAYER ONE’(Ghana/London), VJ ‘EYESAW’(Leeds) and DRUM BOSS ‘BEATEMUP'(Gotham), they are a force to be reckoned with. Together they provide an incredible amount of energy on stage; turning an unassuming crowd of strangers into a seething mass of limb flailing, head nodding, foot stomping, shape throwing fans wherever they go! At Galtres they also had live bass and trumpet to delight the crowds.

I am admittedly totally bias on this one
