ANNOUNCES LIVE SHOWS
8TH APRIL – CLWB IFOR BACH, CARDIFF
9TH APRIL – CAMDEN ASSEMBLY, LONDON

Hannah Grace has shared the video for her new single, ‘With You’, as well as announcing two shows at London’s Camden Assembly and Cardiff’s Clwb Ifor Bach in April.

A vibrant palette of color and emotional sentiment and an atmospheric and touching interpretation of the track, the video visualizes the healing power of companionship and the importance of being there for those in need.

“The music video for ‘With You’ was inspired by the Japanese art ‘Kintsugi’ – repairing broken objects with gold,” explains Hannah. “As a philosophy it treats breakage as part of the history of an object rather than something to disguise or hide and I just love this! I wanted to also get this idea across through movement. With the help of an amazing choreographer Simon we put together some movements that convey my friends being there for me when I’m broken and the routine shows them pulling me through, holding & physically supporting me.  I’ve always wanted to move in a music video and it was amazing to get to work with such great dancers!” 

Already proving a radio hit, including hitting the A-List on BBC Radio Wales, ‘With You’ is a bold demonstration of Hannah’s jaw-dropping soulful vocals among a stirring jazz-influenced backing of horns, piano and beautiful harmonies.

‘With You’ follows the release of her single ‘Oh River’ last year. The beautiful ballad saw Hannah stun listeners with her incredible vocals, which saw the likes of Dermot O’Leary and his team clear space on his Radio 2 show to share her voice. She’s also appeared on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show and Zoe Ball’s ITV programme, in addition to a slot at the BBC Biggest Weekend for Radio 2 in Perth, Scotland.

Hannah Grace closed 2018 with the release of the collaborative Christmas EP December alongside Gabrielle Aplin. The lead single and title track featured on 14 ‘New Music Friday’ Spotify playlists, and was spotlighted in the UK and US Top 10, as well as being played on Radio 2. The EP also featured three beautiful covers of classic Christmas tracks.

Hannah first caught the attention of Never Fade label owner Gabrielle Aplin through her covers uploaded onto YouTube. Her covers have since gone on to win over even more high profile supporters and Gabrielle signed her to Never Fade Records, which is distributed worldwide by AWAL.

In 2017 Hannah garnered praise from Lady Gaga after posting a cover of her hit ‘Million Reasons’, which provoked Gaga to tweet the video and call Hannah a “superstar”. Meanwhile in the same year her cover of ‘Praise You’ soundtracked the Lloyds Bank TV advert and clocked up over 3 million streams.

Hannah Grace kicks off 2019 with the latest taste of brand new music in the shape of ‘With You’. Her show stopping performance sets the precedent for the year ahead when she is set to turn even more heads.

MEGAN DAVIES Shares Black Mirror-Inspired Video for ‘Gimme’

RELEASES BLACK MIRROR-INSPIRED VIDEO FOR

‘GIMME’

EXPLORING TOXIC RELATIONSHIPS WITH SOCIAL MEDIA

UK HEADLINE TOUR IN FEBRUARY
PLAYING BUSH HALL, LONDON – MARCH 1ST

Alt-pop newcomer Megan Davies has released a Black Mirror-inspired video for her new single ‘Gimme’, which visually explores the toxicities within social media outlets.

Having first gained success via YouTube herself, Megan came up with the concept of the video born out of the things you see happening online every day. Playing out scenes of make-up tutorials, gaming fails to epic guitar solos, Megan is enticed into entering this freakish world where users are caught up in the obsessions of being liked, followed and becoming a YouTube star.

The video premiered with Celebmix where Megan explained, “The concept of the video began as “YouTuber Purgatory”, where creators get trapped by the online persona they create.  It’s something that I’ve feared for myself as a YouTuber. It’s easy to get boxed in as a musician – whether your platform is a show like American Idol or doing covers on YouTube. Before you know it, everything you create is dictated by the image that’s been curated online. It can be a struggle to maintain authenticity.”

Megan’s creative acoustic covers and mashups rapidly gained traction online as her YouTube views and subscribers grew in their millions. Tracks like her three-song mashup ‘See You Again/ Love Me Like You Do/ Sugar’ has had over 60 million video plays and reached #1 on both the US and Global Spotify Viral 50 charts.

She’s now amassed over 190 million views and 1.3 million subscribers on her YouTube channel alone and she maintains over 6 million Spotify streams each month.

Breaking out from covers, Megan first introduced fans to her gorgeous alt-pop style with her 2017 debut EP Bad Poetry which was released independently and has clocked up over 3 million Spotify streams with the title track getting a lot of love from Sirius XM.

Hotly tipped as one to watch by the likes of Billboard, she has gone on to release the tracks ‘Doesn’t Matter’, which won 1st Place in the USA Songwriting Competition – Pop Category, ‘Moonlight’ which has racked-up close to 1 million streams and the new single ‘Gimme’, which debuted on nine Spotify playlists across the globe upon its release in November.

Megan is a genuine and relatable artist with strong songwriting skills and is now building her presence as a live artist having recently toured across the US supporting YouTube heavyweights Boyce Avenue and shared stages with the likes of Jennifer Hudson, Madilyn Bailey and Noah Guthrie and Striking Matches.

Later this month she will be back in the UK on her headline tour where she will play Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham, Cardiff and London before heading off across Europe.

MAT KEREKES Shares New Single ‘Diamonds’

IMG_6996IMG_6972

Best known as the lead vocalist of the cult alt-rock band Citizen, the Ohio-based singer-songwriter Mat Kerekes has shared his new single ‘Diamonds’. The track is the second single to be taken from his from upcoming solo album Ruby after the title track was released in December.

Mixing the intimate with the anthemic, ‘Diamonds’ transcends the lo-fi, acoustic-based recording style of his previous solo releases in favour of a sharper pop edge that offers a modern take on timeless rock sonics.

‘Diamonds’ is accompanied by a surreal music video directed by Johnny Chew (Rainbow Kitten Surprise, The Bronx).

The album ‘Ruby’ finds Kerekes showcasing his versatility as a singer-songwriter. Incorporating elements of pop and alternative, it boasts massive choruses, dynamic arrangements and infectious melodies.

‘Diamonds’ is released on Black Cement Records in the States, the label headed by Will Yip (producer of Turnstile, Angel Du$t and many more), and via Parlophone in the UK.

Mat Kerekes will hit the road on a month-long North American tour which commences at the end of the month. Support comes from Jetty Bones and Jacob Sigman. Please see http://matkerekes.com/ for full dates and ticket information.

NY-Based Alt Rock Band BROOKLINE Premiere New Single “Sinking”

IMG_6970

NY-based alternative rock band Brookline have released their new single “Sinking,” out NOW. The second single off of their upcoming EP “Fade” (out 2/22), “Sinking” sings an emotional narrative, touching upon themes of heartbreak and addiction. Elements of hard rock and pop punk are meshed together in the track, creating a unique blend that hints at influences of 90’s alternative. With an upcoming music video planned for “Sinking,” Brookline is also gearing up for the release of “Fade,” which will take new listeners on an emotional ride. About the single, the band states:

“Sinking” is the 2nd single off of Brookline’s Fade EP and tells the story of a relationship torn apart by addiction. The chorus hook “like a ship at sea you’re sinking, and I can’t be your lighthouse beacon” embodies the theme of the song; that although this person clearly needs help, their partner can no longer handle being subjected to their self destructive behavior and has to leave for their own good.

A five piece alternative rock band from upstate New York, Brookline features Mikey Pace (guitar), Dave Bennet (guitar), Matt Spinner (bass), Chris Fox (drums), and Tommy Carter (vocals). Formed in 2018, the group has mixed influence from pop punk and emo to post-hardcore and 90’s alternative rock. In late 2018, they announced the upcoming release of their second EP “Fade,” recorded with Jake Mannix of Indigo Audio Co. “Fade” shows a large amount of growth in musicianship as well as lyrical content from the groups earlier work. Touching on personal experiences of heartbreak, and the struggles of drug/alcohol abuse, “Fade” uses a combination of explosive hard rock and melodic emo and alternative influence to express these themes to their listeners and is set to be released February 22, 2019.

The lead single off of “Fade,” titled “Sinking,” is available NOW on all digital platforms.
