Voice in the Attic – “Warts & All” – his strongest record thus far

I discovered BC Bogey aka Voice in the Attic during 2015, listening to the single “Over”, and fell in love with this project instantly. BC Bogey is a critically acclaimed songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, award-winning music video director and classically trained singer, who works with Grammy-winning musicians and sound engineers from Europe and the USA. The way he can easily glide through the organic chill of some songs, into the homey, campfire-like tunes, then to the fully fleshed-out modern twist of others, will always surprise me. He puts so much effort into the music and the lyrics, it’s always worth supporting him.

ECHOGLASS – “Hard” – Blistering guitars, muscular bass and drums

The Lancashire, Blackburn-based collective, ECHOGLASS, is a musical vehicle for core members DA McKenna, Remmy and Bo, who release their creations through Darkhouse Recordings. Their work is musically and lyrically distinct, and from the beginning they have always transcended the generic constraints of UK indie pop, punk and rock. Reinventing their blended sound on each release. While most of their contemporaries are electronic based clones, ECHOGLASS’ latest single “Hard”, inspires and delights with its guitar driven engine room. Going against the current tide, the band’s music is intense, introspective and acutely observant – a wholly alternative world view. The lead vocals are

Kee Beez – “Keep It 100” – cocked, locked, and ready to rock!

Kee Beez grew up in the SF Bay area California with his ability to produce, perform and record. The Rap and Hiphop artist is fresh off his 10 track project “Keep It 100” from Da Kee Records. The recording has a refreshing flow to it that hip hop albums lately have been totally lacking. It exhibits a hip hop artist, holding out his pen-game and showing you a compass pointing to the true core of the hip hop culture that most albums fail to point to as of recent years. And it’s not just someone barely mumbling over lyrics with

Abeille – “Feels” – sensitivity and consummate craftsmanship

Abeille (meaning ‘honeybee’ in French) is an indie jazz-pop duo out of Nashville and Portland. This long distance project is made up of Emily Jewel and Samuel Terrazzino, who currently released their debut single “Feels”. “This song goes past the meaning of just two individuals finding each other,” explains the duo, continuing: “At the time this song was written we had just started playing music together again after a multi-year hiatus of minimal contact. This song was the turning point in our relationship from being just friends to something more.” They have since gone from being just friends, to a

Frado180 – an instrumental artist and aspiring Hip hop producer from New York City, NY

Starting out as a passionate hip-hip DJ at the age of 15, Frado180 worked hard at the local gas station in order to own his first Turntable. And he never had to look back as a local group 2 in Room with hit single “Wiggle it” fame soon discovered his talent and helped him produce his first demo. At that moment his propulsive force of music truly began to take shape by its zig-zagging through genres, settling on moments of analogue clarity as well as digital refraction. Frado180 got his first real break when he landed a gig at a

Nachamuni – “Deep Down” a total floor filler with an infectious groove!

“Deep Down” is the new EDM single from electronic music producer Nachamuni, who is based in Vienna Austria. The track extends the reach of his signature sound. Most significantly, the Deep House track showcases a shift toward the high-minded, super-precise catchy pop production vibe of most modern electronic producers. The growling basslines have the potential to draw law enforcement officers to your doorstep, depending on the decibel level and kindness of your neighbors. Its structure dominates the landscape with both breathtaking impact and precision. The track refuses to recycle an old beat, gradually building from a melodic and soulful vocal

Alysha Releases Official Video for “David Attenborough”

A bit over a month ago, London born Alysha, a 17 year old teen with enormous talent as a singer and songwriter, would have probably not imagined for her career to catapult in such a sort of magical way. Every artist, before they begin their road to stardom and even throughout, always dream all they want to do to achieve their goals. We hear many stories of singers that were many times turned down by the industry, one that said industry sometimes gets a tough reality check, when they realize that the artist is now a superstar (on a different

Miles Grindey – “Make Up Your Mind” – peaks of quality, depth and beauty

The track “Make Up Your Mind” is not only a display of Miles Grindey’s artistic skills as a musician and songwriter but it also gives the opportunity to some of the band members, in particular Ian Michael Bruh on vocals, Wayne Viar on drums, Enrico Galetta on bass and Bill Hart on keys, to shine with a level of musicianship of incredible standards. Bruh has an exceptional presence to his vocals that’s more than big enough to compete with the rock solid band behind him, and listening to it here will totally heal your spirit. Miles smokes on the guitar, but never overpowers the mid-tempo groove and well-written lyrics. His guitar tones are full and defined on both lead and rhythm and he uses them to put his skills right out front. Miles opts for a focused “all thrill no swill” mentality here, and it makes the track go down like a classic from guitar music’s glory days.

Miles Grindey has consistently done himself proud since first hitting the scene with his debut EP, but his latest single, “Make Up Your Mind” is a high-water mark by any metric you’d care to employ. This song communicates the experience and growth Miles has accumulated to date.

He has certainly reached peaks of quality, depth and beauty in his playing never reached before. Sure, I’ve heard Miles tear his six-string apart on the album “Caught in a Storm”, but now he has added a complete new dimension to his playing, where tone and finesse play a major role.

On “Make Up Your Mind”, Miles Grindey has gone far and beyond any of his other previous studio records, in terms of craftsmanship and level of class. It is fascinating to witness the progression and maturation of a man and an artist that, through each record, has grown up in many different ways, by always challenging himself and his musical vision.

“Make Up Your Mind” is aimed at, and will appeal to, a much wider audience than just guitar aficionados. Besides his phenomenal guitar playing skills, this track shows off Miles’ formidable talent as a songwriter. Miles also let us in on a songwriting secret, stating that the track contains an “easter egg”: In the lyrics, the line, “Love is blind, said Tommy”, is a reference to the best worst film ever made “The Room” and Tommy Wiseau’s character, Tommy.

This track is perfectly tuned for mainstream rock radio, and the like, with its steady rhythm and heartfelt lyrics. “Make Up Your Mind” is a well-thought-out, well-written and exquisitely-produced single. If it doesn’t add considerably to Miles Grindey’s acclaim, then I suggest that any naysayers have their ears cleaned.

Unlike many talented guitar players, Miles doesn’t try to be flashy but uses his talents in the service of the song. In a better, bygone time, “Make Up Your Mind” would be a platinum-selling single, heard blasting out of every car stereo in town all summer long. Miles Grindey has fused a clever amalgam of hard-edged rock, alongside a tinge of contemporary pop and blues, with a thrillingly positive outcome.

The Miles Grindey Story So Far: Miles Grindey was born in Southampton, where began playing the guitar at the age of nine. During his time at school he listened to Van Halen which kept his momentum going. In 2015 Miles left home to study politics at the University of Brighton where he joined the Music Society. After meeting Jack Pout (previously a member of the group Fukushima Dolphin) at a music store, Miles auditioned as lead guitarist for the band The Bones and Arrows. They recorded a self-titled EP together before Miles left the band in 2016 to pursue a solo career.

This led to Miles Grindey releasing his debut EP, “Keeping My Sanity”, which was followed by the album, “Caught in a Storm”. In 2018 Miles dropped his first single “Ethereal Bollocks”. Following the completion of his degree, Miles returned to Southampton and began work on his second album. In November 2018, Miles left Southampton temporarily, to go to Atlanta, Georgia where he spent a lot of time in various studios working with musicians and becoming a regular in the jam scene. Upon his return to England in May 2019 he released the first single, entitled “Make Up Your Mind”, from his upcoming second album.
