Tom Figgins - Imagesound Sessions

Wednesday, 17 February 2016

0

Sessions time again and a trip to Shoreditch earlier this week to check out Tom Figgins at The Sawmill.

At 19, working alongside producer Bob Cranham (whose previous artists included Newton Faulkner) he penned his debut EP Your Place from his bedroom. His second release Wake Up went on to achieve critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic. This culminated in a chance meeting, and eventual management signing, with an industry stalwart in the shape of Nick Stewart: the man who signed U2 to Island Records.

Since then Tom can boast years of relentless gigging and song-writing as well as signing to Nick Stewart’s own record label of Man in the Moon Records. And he is still only 23 years old. Not for him, though, the ‘hipster hang out’ side of the industry – he is too musically mercurial and industrious to be bogged down with simply ‘being seen’ in the right places. Instead Tom has been developing and honing his sound in front of audiences the length and breadth of Britain, including collaboration at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe whereby he co-wrote and performed in The Duck Pond which also featured his track ‘Mother’. More recently he has been working in the studio with Matt “Urby Whale” Owens, bass player from Noah And The Whale.

You can hear two songs from Tom on the Imagesound Sessions, his new single ‘Giants Played in Woods Like These’ and ‘Let Your Roots Grow’, and you can hear Tom in Caffe Nero, Crowne Plaza, Marriot and Renaissance Hotels.

Charlie Hole - Imagesound Sessions

Friday, 4 December 2015

0

It's Friday, or it least it was when we posted this... so it's time for another Session this time with the super talented Charlie Hole.

A few years ago in a British radio interview, none other than Rod Stewart hailed a new emerging musical talent who had written a “beautiful song” and intimated he was destined for great things. Around the same time, Andy Hill, three-time Ivor Novello award winning song-writer proclaimed his astonishment at the sheer quality and maturity in the young man’s songs. Amazing accolades from no less than 2 global music legends. Yet Bournemouth born singer-songwriter Charlie takes all of this very much in his stride.

Given his achievements to date, it is hard to believe that Charlie is still only 22 years old. Since the age of eleven, he has been writing music and has been playing his songs across the length and breadth of the UK. This experience has nurtured his talents, allowing him to continuously grow and mature as an artist, taking his inspiration from legends such as Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Paul Simon and Randy Newman.


A random meeting with record producer Jim Cregan (Rod Stewart, Katie Melua) led to a series of recordings at Jim’s studio. Over the next year, working on weekends and school holidays, they recorded an album of Charlie’s original songs called ‘The Joy Of A Caged Bird’. Then, when he was 18 he secured a credible publishing deal with Rondor/Universal – an incredible platform for a burgeoning and talented young musician. But just to be clear, Charlie is not doing this in search of fame or fortune. His aim is simply to be a respected songwriter and to perform his songs live.  His rare gift for lyrics and his subtle, evocative vocals have given him this opportunity.

Imagesound Sessions - FRANKMUSIK

Tuesday, 29 September 2015

0


So this is a very special Session for us, we're revisiting our very first artist from back in early 2014, Frankmusik, aka Vincent Frank, vocalist, producer and keyboardist based in Croydon, South London.

I first heard Frankmusik way back in 2009 when I stumbled across the 'Better Off As 2' video and at the time remember thinking this guy has a big future, 5 albums later and collaborations with Far East Movement, Colette Carr and Mohombi, Frankmusik can consider himself something of a Pop veteran.

His debut EP, Frankisum was released on Apparent Records, a label he co-founded with David Norland, in 2007. He was then later signed to Universal/Island and released his debut album 'Complete Me' which hit the UK Albums Chart at Number 13.

Since 'Complete Me' Frankmusik has released a further four albums, two of which have been acoustic versions of an earlier release and show a stripped back maturity to Frankmusik's musical and vocal ability and defnitely worth a listen.

Frankmusik performed a new track from his seventh studio album, 'For You' which is set to be released in October 2015 this is 'Mistress'.

2015 is set to be a big one for Frankmusik, just remember, you heard it here first!

Where Does Music Take You?

Saturday, 4 July 2015

0


It's Saturday night and I'm writing a blog, 'relax and enjoy the weekend' I can hear you say, well I am, the sun is shining the birds are singing and I've cracked on a mix that our Head of Global Media Produced a few days ago, I've only just managed to get an hour to myself to enjoy it, and enjoy it I am. 

So this post isn't about Rich and how fabulous he is, he even runs his own label but we'll save that for another time, it's about where this mix took me on the musical journey in my mind.  

It's true music has an emotive connection, it can move you, make you happy, sad, remind you of good times and bad. Its been a while since I went to ibiza, I reckon 6 years (man, I feel old now). Since then I haven't really exposed myself to a Balearic House music sound as I've enjoyed discovering new artists and bands whilst producing the imagesound sessions. It was September 2009 when I went with a few friends and had the best time, from Pacha to Space and everything in-between we did it. I could go on forever about beaches, bars and nights you should check out but I'd be meandering off course and away from my point. 

My point is the mix took me to sunsets on the rocks by Cafe Del Mar in San Antonio, without doubt one of, if not the best thing to do on the island that won't cost you a single penny. There's an atmosphere at the sunsets you can almost feel, hundreds will gather with a collective appreciation of just how lucky you are to be there to witness it,  it's electric, and when the sun goes down the party can start. 

In almost an instant music took me right back there, to memories of great times with great friends. 

Where does music take you?

Imagesound Sessions - Hot Soles

Wednesday, 17 June 2015

0

The month of June see's Sheffield band 'Hot Soles' join us on the Imagesound Sessions, playing aggressive soul, absorbing life and singing about it. Hot Soles are a breathtaking duo whose every live performance is a dynamic show-stopper. Since October 2010, the Yorkshire band have been wowing audiences from all walks of life with their rip roaring, raucous soul vibe.
When they first met during an idle lunchtime at school, one of them vigorously beat the other with a piece of wood. Fortunately, after much crying, sighing and some lengthy spells in detention, they decided to bury the hatchet and become best buds. It's not every day that two sensual souls of such rare groove and voracious passion collide in the cosmos, and so, Hot Soles were born, and we're ruddy glad they were! 
This is 'Glorious Blunder'
