First Look> NEW Video 'Ballerino' From NYC chanteuse MAY

New York-based Australian chanteuse MAY releases her new single 'Ballerino.' Pulling influences of Nina Simone and Leonard Cohen through a prism of haunted soul, MAY’s heartbreaking vocal soothes before barrelling to a cinematic crescendo.

'Ballerino' is an ode to a Parisian moment lost in time and the struggle to reconcile past and present. Accompanied by a haunting music video featuring a choreographed ballet routine, the dancer's movements mirror the song's beauty and pain, where love and acceptance ultimately triumph.

'Ballerino,' is the first of several songs planned for release in 2017.


Swedish singer-songwriter duo "Smith & Thell" Debut Album "Soulprints"

Swedish duo Smith & Thell have emerged as two of the most successful new songwriters and producers out of Sweden during the last year or two. They have over 20 gold and platinum records to their name for other artists, and over 200 million streams to date.
Last year at the prestigious Denniz Pop Awards, they were awarded "Best New Artist” by their peers, a jury of the most successful Swedish writers led by the one and only Max Martin.

The pair have released two singles, in the leadup to their forthcoming debut album "Soulprints" to be globally released April 2017 through Playground Music Scandinavia AB.

Listen to breakthrough single "Statue"

Listen to second single "Row"

Maria Jane Smith and Victor Thell, collectively known as Smith & Thell, met as teenagers at a local music event in their hometown of Helsingborg in Southern Sweden. Since then, they have spent their time establishing themselves as one of Sweden's most sought after songwriter and producer combos. They have contributed as writers on songs for major label artists that have combined to be streamed over 200,000,000 times (in Scandinavia alone).

After deciding to launch their own artist project, Smith & Thell, they submitted their original song “Statue” to be considered for Sweden’s prestigious Denniz Pop Awards. With a panel led by multi-platinum producer Max Martin, the jury selected Smith & Thell as the “2015 New Artist of The Year” which is the same honor that was given to international superstar Tove Lo in 2014.

”Statue" is a strong, hopeful anthem about ripping the metaphorical bandages off your emotional wounds and letting your real feelings out”. The duo chose to write about this subject matter for very personal reasons since at age 13, Maria tragically lost both her parents. "I wasn’t mentally ill, just heartbroken and sad. Reluctantly, I was medicated by all these doctors, but what I wanted and needed was therapy, understanding and human connection, not pills" she says. The songs message has already resonated with fans as the group receives messages daily thanking them for being so open and honest about the issue of “over prescribing” which millions of people are effected by all around the world. Their second single ”Row” was released worldwide on October 7th, 2016.

The Lunar Effect - Strange Lands

Like the band's namesake, their music moves in cycles and rhythms much like all humans and living creatures. Getting signals from external sources as well as inner cues, The Lunar Effect traverse the phases and phenomenon of existence with a blend of psychedelia and primal rock.

Jon Jefford describes it thusly,
“The album as a concept is really influenced by space, time and other worlds. We were very aware of this throughout the writing and recording sessions. Everything from the artwork and music to some of the lyrics has an extra-terrestrial feel, questioning who we are. It’s no Ziggy or Floyd but for us it definitely flowed, even the title Strange Lands. That was originally from a song that didn’t make the cut, but the name stands. “Waking up in a strange land, we’ve all done it.”

Vocals/Guitar/Piano/Harmonium - Jon Jefford
Guitar - Jim Harris
Bass - Mark Fuller
Drums - Daniel Jefford

'Strange Lands' can be streamed and purchased as a download via the band's Bandcamp page

There's a Ruckus In The Hen House, MFC Chicken, Goin' Chicken Crazy.

There's a party in the hen house and feathers are flying with these crazy fun loving roosters. Who doesn't love hip-swinging music from a band that enjoys playing together so much it's contagious and starts a ruckus from the first song to the last. Warning: Side effects include uncontrollable giddiness, cravings for shots of Tequila, belly laughs and dance floor mayhem.

MFC Chicken is back in action with Colonel Spencer back from spending another well-dressed summer hidden deep within the Canadian Wilderness. The Chickens are ready to take Europe by storm with a new album and extended tour of Spain and the UK.

After debuting an expanded all-star DELUXE line up at Spring 2016's Hipsville Festival to great acclaim and significant excitement, MFC Chicken have taken this new and improved recipe into the studio for their latest and greatest album to date, GOIN' CHICKEN CRAZY. It keeps that same raw Chicken energy, humour and party vibe that you fans have all come to know and love while adding extra punch and power with a load of special guest talent.

In addition to the core line up of Spencer Evoy (Tenor Sax and Lead Vocals), Alberto Zioli (Lead guitar and vocals) Zig Criscuolo (Bass) and Ravi-Low Beer (Drums), the Deluxe line up includes Chuchi Malapersona (Oh! Gunquit) on baritone sax, Dan Criscuolo (The Fuzillis)  on baritone guitar,  Tim Harrison (The Caezars) on piano, as well as veteran Chickens The Reverend Parsley on guest keys and Fernando Terror sharing double lead vocals with Spencer on one of the albums' most lyrically inappropriate tunes.

In addition to their new album released in November 2016 on Dirty Water Records, MFC have more exciting poultry products in the pipe line. They've been in the studio with Sister Cookie, recording two more exciting tunes for their second collaborative single and, after an unforgettable performance backing up the legendary GARY US BONDS at the Surforama Festival in Spain, they're in the process of collaborating with the R&B legend for a brand new single. Stay tuned for updates!
