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.

Hayley Gaftarnick consistently creates outstanding music

Hayley Gaftarnick, is one of Leeds finest solo performers. An independent singer/song-writer who consistently creates outstanding music

Hayley’s debut single ‘Turn To Stone’ has gained her a lot of well deserved credit. The song is about unrequited love. Which is something I’m surprised she has experience of as everyone who hears her is instantly hooked.

Here’s Hayley’s ‘live’ video version of ‘Turn To Stone’

The single is from her album ‘Circles’. Featuring  some of Yorkshires finest musicians, Rosie Doonan (Rose and The Howling North/Cuckoo Records/Cry Baby Cry), JonnyTheFirth(Cry Baby Cry/Cuckoo Records), Adam Richards(Spirit of John/Xray Cat Trio/Cuckoo Records, Sam Lawrence(Wilful Missing/Gary Stewart/Rosie Doonan), Nici Todd(Cry Baby Cry/Cuckoo Records), Samuel Thornton(Louis, Louis, Louis) Richard Collie(Hotfoot Powder/Louis,Louis,Louis), Simon Beddoe(Submotion Orchestra/Haggis Horns), Lee Smith(Middleman/Greenmount Studio’s), Jamie Lockhart (Mi, Mye./Greenmount Studio’s)

Glassbody

A very good new track & video by Leeds band Glassbody. I first saw them in the heats of Centre Stage in Leeds, where they went on to win in the O2 Academy Leeds. A Leeds/Reading Festival appearance followed and they really went for it. Impressing the crowds at both sites. Now a year on they have impressed me again with this new release.
