Orfila – Floor It
Floor it is the opening track of ORFILA’s new album; NEVER SLOWIN’ DOWN. The song typifies the group’s ambition to just ‘go for it’ and not to hold back on life’s goals. The album sees the band firmly state their intent to be a truly honest UK Country Band.

Glenn Coleman – Delta Mae
The new EP DELTA MAE by American Guitarist-Singer/Songwriter Glenn Coleman is a perfect example of his Southern Rock roots with his after hours bluesy vocals. As well as his stellar electric, acoustic and slide guitar performances on these three self-penned songs that reflect the various areas of the genre so well.
Hannah Rose Platt - Dancer
Dancer – Track 3 from Hannah Rose Platt’s critically acclaimed debut album PORTRAITS recorded in Nashville, produced by herself & Michael Bonagura. Hannah was inspired to write this song after a moving observation of a waitress at her favourite café in Crystal Palace where she lives. The track features Hannah on guitars, Stuart Duncan on fiddle and Grammy award winning Mark Fain on double bass.
Annie Keating - You Bring The Sun
Talent spotted by BBC Radio 2’s Bob Harris, (who calls the new album, “Wonderful – heartfelt and real”) Keating appeared live on the Bob Harris show twice and has performed at leading international festivals. This new track You Bring the Sun speaks for itself without need for explanation. It’s no surprise a song this catchy and well produced continues to get BBC radio play along with various other tunes on Keating’s 7th album, TRICK STAR.
Norma Macdonald - Blue As A Jay
Norma MacDonald’s voice holds sublime contradictions—it’s fluid but piercing, self-assured but full of yearning. Her fourth solo album, BURN THE TAPES is just as complex: her incisive lyrics exploring old stories and fresh heartbreaks with startling acuity, all woven into a warm and bright country album. In addition to glowing reviews in Canada, the US, and the UK, the album has been nominated by Music Nova Scotia as Americana/Bluegrass Recording of the Year.
The Grahams - Glory Bound
GLORY BOUND's title track is a propulsive number about the inevitable mistakes one makes in life, and the lessons that come about as a result of them. It builds quickly from a steady kick drum beat and acoustic guitar to explode into full-throated harmonies between Alyssa and Doug. The song’s breakneck rhythm perfectly mirrors the momentum of trains both literal and metaphorical.“‘Glory Bound’ is the eternal ambivalence, in the deepest sense of being pulled in two opposite directions at once, of knowing better and f***ing up again anyway, and also of both lamenting and cherishing past f***ups, all of which can still add up to some kind of momentum heading somewhere,” said the duo in a release..
