I watched a superb duo called the LAKE POETS last night at the Tramlines Festival in Sheffield Martin Longstaff a multi instrumentalist takes the vocals while his partner in the band plays some wonderful pedal steel giving a haunting backdrop to their songs please check out more from this band the new ep is out now


Sheffield band Blessa have so far issued some superb stuff on Soundcloud, the band have been making waves and creating a stir with their songs and the brilliantly titled “Love Is An Evol Word”  Ep, shimmering guitar and superb vocals from Olivia Neller.  The band will be at the Tramlines Festival this weekend in Sheffield.



Slow Club were always going to produce a classic album with superb musicianship and such songwriting talents of Rebecca Taylor and Charles Watson they are a powerful partnership, the Sheffield based Boy/Girl duo have played some wonderful energetic live sets but now with the added band members including the wonderful Sweet Baboo the band have just got better and are now headlining festivals. Formed in 2005 when teenage friends they have powerful pop songs and charismatic vocals with influences of all genres, the new album “Complete Surrender” is more immaculate produced pop and at last I hope everyone appreciates this wonderful quality band catch them at Tramlines or Deershed festival,


so far the Black Tambourines have released a few EP’s and a couple of singles and they just keep getting better superb garage rock, they describe themselves as a band that rocks and blows minds and they certainly do I only expect better things for this band,
