TOM JARVIS FROM CAMBRIDGE,LONDON CHATTED TO ME ABOUT HIS NEW DOUBLE A SIDED SINGLE (A SIDE) ‘WONDER OF TIME’ AND SUPPORTING SOME BIG NAMES

What is your name?  Tom Jarvis

 

What is your genre of music?

 Singer/Songwriter/Pop/Folk

 

Give us a little bio about you.

 Im a Singer/Songwriter from Cambridge. I’ve been performing live for 6 years now and been lucky enough to support artists such as Nina Nesbitt, Scouting for girls, Toploader, Example, John Newman and Stu Larsen.

 My debut EP made the top 40 of the iTunes singer/songwriter charts and currently working on my new release scheduled for August 12th 2016.

 

What made you go in to music?

 I love music and I love a challenge. Simple as that really.

 

Are you a signed?

 No

 

Your brand new Single ‘Wonder Of Time’ , whats the meaning behind? 

 Wonder of time is a bit of a love story about a person thats special to you and the only way you can compare their epicness (if thats a word) is by comparing them to the Wonders of the world, because they are pretty epic after all.

 

Will we see a EP or album by the end of the year? 

 Im planning on getting back in the studio towards the end of 2016, so hopefully at the beginning of 2017 the next EP will be available.

 

Will you be doing any gigs or tours? 

 I am in the process of organising a few tour dates over the next few months, so keep an eye out on my Facebook/twitter/website for details on these.

 

You’ve supported so many great arises already, how was that? 
 Insane. I love playing live anyway, but to be able to warm a crowd up for some huge names is always pretty special.

 

Did any of the bands or artists you supported give you advice? 

 The advice I seem to get from anybody who has ‘made it’ in the music industry is to keep going…. Regardless of how tough it is. Sounds cliche, but I believe it is true.

 

Do you play any instruments?

 Yes primarily the guitar, but also play the Ukulele, bass guitar, a little piano and really basic drums haha

 

Who are your influences?

 I have so many musical influences, but to name a few… Jason Mraz, John Mayer, The Fray, Hunter Hayes, Tim McGraw, Ben Howard, Jack Johnson and the list goes on….

 

How do you get inspiration to write songs?

 I really go through phases… Some times I feel creative and write a lot, some times I just don’t. So I don’t try to force it. But I try and draw inspiration from happy things that make me smile or chilled, rather than upsetting depressing things… 

 

Where do you see yourself now in 5 Years?

 Still chipping away, never giving up… 🙂

 

When you’re not doing music, what do you do?

 I like to eat which means I have to exercise whether thats Kickboxing, playing football, tennis in the gym etc etc… I also like to ride motorbikes although I don’t have one at the moment which sucks…. I sold it so I could pursue a music career haha!

 

What was the song you listened to most that influenced you to go more in to the music scene? 

 Jason Mraz – Butterfly …… This song I think could be one of my favourite songs.

 

What’s the best advice you have ever been given?

 Make your own luck…. Which was actually the title of my debut EP back in 2014.

 

What advice would you give to aspiring musicians not about the industry and just as an artist?

 Be yourself, don’t worry about pleasing everybody and make things happen for yourself.

 

What quote or saying do you always stick by?

 Again, sorry to keep repeating myself, but I live by the motto ‘Make your own luck’
 When you are at a gig, what are 5 things you cannot forget? 

 Guitar, spare plectrums, guitar strap, a guitar lead and myself.

CORELLA ARE A FOUR PIECE WHO ALL MET AT BIMM MACHESTER READY TO  GIVE THEIR ALL TO THE MUSIC SCENE,GET TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THEM HERE! 

 What are your name?

Joel Smith, Ben Henderson, Jack Taylor, James Fawcett

What is the bands name?

Corella

How did you come up with the bands name?

It was actually totally random! I think jack thought of it in the shower and that was it haha, we think it sounds abit like a spanish beer so its all good with us haha. Its actually a breed of parrot, pretty cool!

What is your genre of music?

Its hard to put a set genre on our music, its quite an intersting mix we’d say. Maybe Alternative rock/pop. If you was to narrow it down to one genre we’d say alternative!

Give us a little bio about you and you guys as individuals.

Joel( I started music quite late compared to others. Being an acoustic act around my hometown, it was difficult to get noticed so moving to manchester was a risky yet right thing to do. Coming here and meeting my band mates, it was the best decision I ever made and im certinally not looking back.
Ben (I’ve been playing music and gigging around York for around 3 years playing solo acoustic material mainly. Since going to BIMM Manchester and meeting the group, I’ve picked up the bass guitar and jumped straight into it. There’s no doubt we’ll have plenty more music out in the following months so keep a look out!

 What made you go in to music?

We just love playing live and giving people a buzz. We know how it feels when you watch a band play live and the feeling you get from it, so for us to do that for people its an honour!

Are you a signed?

NO! We wouldn’t turn it down tho hehe

Your brand new single out ‘Waterfall’ , whats the meaning behind?

I think the best thing about this song is that people can interpet the song in your own way. I think they way I wrote the lyric ‘become a waterfall’ was to let go and release your feelings, corny but hey haha!

Can you tell us anything about an EP or Album, if its in the works?

We are currently working towards an EP release, we will be back in the studio with Sugar house Production team based in St Helens in september!

 Do you have gigs coming up or a tour in planning?

We have a few gigs coming up in manchester when we are all back at uni together, One at Joshua Brooks as we are headlining the night. As for a tour we are looking and willing to support any other bands like oursleves.

Do you play any instruments?

Joel(rhythm guitar, lead vocals
Ben(guitar,bass, backing vocals
Jack(guitar
James(drums

Who are your influences?

Our influences range as we are all into different stuff, but if you was to put them all together they would be Bombay Bicycle Club, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Foals, Little Comets, Led Zeppelin, Circa Waves, Stevie Wonder and The Maccabees.

How do you get inspiration to write songs?

When we are jamming all together it just naturally comes to us all, we are all always on the same wave length and vibe so its pretty easy for us to write songs together and perform easily and comfortably togetehr.

Where do you see yourself now in 5 Years?

HOPEFULLy having our own tour with a good fan base, I think that’s important to have a decent fan base that like the music you are playing, afterall they are the ones who are buying our music so id we hope to have a decent following and also to have written some bangers!

When you’re not doing music, what do you do?

Well being at uni, if we arent playing theres only one other thing you can do really, go for a few pints haha! We are all laid back together but when it comes to music we all have the same drive and determination. we like a little party every now and again haha

What was the song you listened to most that influenced you to go more in to the music scene?

For myself id say bands like bombay and little commets, also two door cinema club. They influence me massivly. For the other lads I know jack loves his ac/dc and pink flloyd, the old git haha.

If you had one of your songs played on a TV show or Film which woild you want it to be?

Maybe a bmx montage video or somethuing , thatd be pretty cool!

What’s the best advice you have ever been given?

We all met drummer Ben Thompson for Two door cinema club recently. He went to the same uni as we did and seeing him tour the world with a band daily gave us the belif we could ask for. They hit home that we could actually get somewhere for doing what we love. He told us to work hard and practice daily, never give up. I think working your arse off in this idustry is a must.

What advice would you give to aspiring musicians not about the industry and just as an artist?

Id say think a head of people. Don’t follow what the crowd is doing now, because its already being done. Do something different as an artist, you will stand out from the crowd and as for that, how wouldn’t want to listen for something new and fresh?!

 When you are at a gig, what are 5 things you cannot forget?

LYRICS!!CHORDS, the main one for me is my tuning of my guitar, I always forget all the time haha.

HERE’S YOUR WARNING DUO ‘THE PURPLE LIGHTS’ ARE SET TO RELEASE ‘WARNING’ IN AUGUST AND WE CHATTED ABOUT WHAT ITS ABOUT,GIGS AND MORE. 





What are your names?

Rob Fincham

Akeba Fridye

What is the band name?

The Purple Lights

 

How did you come up with the band name?

Rob: The band name originated from a rather magical looking purple double decker bus, which we rode on when out living it large in Reading one night.

Akeba: Out one night in reading with a group of friends, we saw a bus that lit itself up in luminous Purple Lights, it startled us for a moment and I suggested Purple Lights should be our name. After searching for some time for a suitable name, we instantly felt this was the one.

 

What is your genre of music?

Rob: Psychedelic groove rock

 

Give us a little bio about you as a duo and as individuals.

Rob: The London duo have been winning hearts and minds with their colourful and inclusive live show, gracing festival stages from Latitude to Secret Garden Party. Fusing drummer Akeeba Fridye’s heavy roots reggae beats together with the acid rock riffs and Loopstation electronics of guitarist/Rob Fincham, the pair share and often combine vocal duties to create a gloriously monumental noise. We started playing together a couple of years ago and over the years have developed from acoustic and bongos in to full blown, Hard Groovin rock band.

Akeba: As an individual I’m actually quite a reserved person, around those I feel really comfortable around you will witness Mr Extrovert but I like to listen a lot to people as it helps me understand where they are coming from. This helps my role in music as I get a feel of what could go well with the person or people I am working with whilst behind the drum kit or with the percussion.

 

What made you go in to music?

Rob: I find music as a great way to express and release feelings and emotions. When other people do yoga or go for a run I pick up a guitar and start writing a song. It has always been my dream to be a musician and living that dream in The Purple Lights is more than I could have ever hoped for.

Akeba: It’s in my blood. From a young age utilizing the pots and pans as a drum kit and even the tables at school. Always a beat in my head, always some sort of rhythm I need to let out or create.

 

Are you a signed?

Rob: Not just yet

 

Your brand new single out ‘Warning ‘ ,comes out on the 5th August, whats the meaning behind?

Rob: ‘Warning’s primary message is of noticing the signs of bad things to come before it’s too late. It’s quite a political song, which I know suits the current climate. The song speaks out for the little man being overpowered by corporate injustice.

 

Will we see an EP or Album, at the end of the year?

Rob: Things are definitely in the pipeline!

Akeba: With hard work and determination continuing, We can’t say no.

 

Can you tell us more about it if you are?

Rob: We are currently working on our next release, which is a slower number with a bit more of a reggae groove. The track is titled ‘Not Alone’ and focuses on alienation and misunderstanding. We are just making our minds up whether to release it as a single of work on some additional tracks to give people more of a feeling of our style.

 

Will you be heading out on tour or any gigs?

Rob: Yes we most certainly are! We are very much a live band and enjoy playing up and down the country. We are currently on a festival tour and have been lucky enough to be playing at Bearded Theory, Beacon Fest, Latitude Festival and Secret Garden Party. Keep an eye out on our website of social media platforms for more info.

Akeba: We are booking shows non-stop. We have a few London shows coming up as well as surrounding counties. We will be in the East end of England in autumn around Suffolk, we aim to push up north towards Manchester before the end of the year, and return to the West country of Bristol as well as south in Brighton real soon. We just want to ready ourselves for these ventures before anything. Preparation is key!

 

If so which Cities will you be heading to?

Rob: We gig constantly all over the country from London to Manchester, Suffolk to Brighton. Keep an eye out for gig date son our social media.

 

You work with 3-6-9 PR, how did that come about?

Rob: We were recommended them by a fellow musician and after they came to see us play a couple of times they were excited to work with us on a campaign.

 

Do you play any instruments?

Rob: Yes our band is a mash up of Psychedelic, Punky Guitar followed by some thundering, grooving drums and a variation of synth sounds. All of these are played through an array of interesting pedals and loop stations.

Akeba: Drums or Percussion

 

Who are your influences?

Rob: I love my rock especially the older stuff such as 60’s and 90’s. I grew up on AC/DC and Black Sabbath but listen to a wide range of music, which I think, helps me as a songwriter. I am a big fan of The White Stripes and The Black Keys and also love a nice bit of Tame Impala.

Akeba: Emperor Haile Selassie first and foremost as his conscious state of mind influenced me heavily to work positively and in unison with others of different cultures and backgrounds to me. In the music world Carlton Barrett (Drummer for The Wailers), Carl Anton (Drumnmer for The Roots Radics) Sly and Robbie, Bob Marley, Israel Vibration, Michael Jackson, Jimi Hendrix, (Early) Artic Monkeys, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Classic Fm… the list is endless.

 

How do you get inspiration to write songs?

Rob: Inspiration is taken from everything you do in life, from huge emotion ordeals to the smallest of things such as the smell of grass or the colour of a girl’s eye. The most important thing is just noticing them.

Akeba: Being aware and conscious of things impacting for the better or worse. Things that need to be addressed as songs are a way to get messages across. We have a song called ‘Trigger Man’ which talks of gun crime, especially where I grew up and you have the racial injustices going on in America. It’s about warmongers and the fact we don’t need this happening at all.

 

Where do you see yourself now in 5 Years?

Rob: Living! Writing! Performing! Loving!

Akeba: World Tour. Spreading some serious vibes to people all over the globe encouraging them to Live, Love, Laugh and most of all Enjoy Life.  

 

When you’re not doing music, what do you do?

Rob: I work in a music studio in London as a producer. I also am a bit of a country bumpkin so at any opportunity I will find a park or expanse of land to go for a wander. The city can get a bit claustrophobic at times.

Akeba: Read, Exercise, but my favourite is to Meditate. Understand self and others, the environment I am living in, how I can utilize what is around me for the better. This can be done by meeting new people, networking going new places nature is my closest ally. Also work when I need to via an agency, that’s pretty cool as I am always out and about in a different place.

 

What was the song you listened to most that influenced you to go more in to the music scene?

Rob: AC/DC – ‘It’s a Long Way To The Top’

Akeba: There was no one song, but Bob Marley spoke to me louder than any other music artist. The majority of his songs I feel a connection with.

 

What’s the best advice you have ever been given?

Rob: I am lucky enough to have been to the same sixth form as Ed Sheeran and so on rare occasion may bump in to him around where I live. I had a chat with him at a New Years Eve party a year or so ago and I asked him how he was able to play so many gigs in the early stages. He said the

people who know the best gigs are the performers themselves. At every gig you do speak to all the performers and you will pick up at least one new venue from each person. Communication is key.

Akeba: Everybody’s journey to the top of the mountain is different. You can’t judge someone because they are not doing things the way you would. Bringing positivity to the table injects more positivity into the world.

 

What advice would you give to aspiring musicians not about the industry and just as an artist?

Rob: Never give up! Keep playing and writing! Most of people who don’t succeed don’t fail because of lack of talent, they fail due to lack of commitment.

Akeba: You have the power to create your own destiny. Utilize every opportunity You get. Constant work and determination goes a long way. You’ll be where You want to be in no time at all.

 

What quote or saying do you always stick by?

Rob: “It’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock n roll”

Akeba: Bob Marley’s song ‘War’ is a quote of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia’s speech during an appeal to the League of Nations in 1963. It is very much current to this day.

 

When you are at a gig, what are five things you cannot forget?

Rob: GUITAR! Charisma! Love! Akeba! Oh and Trousers!

Akeba: Love, Positivity, Humbleness, Thankfulness, Peaceful mind

 

Do you have social media accounts so your fans can follow you?

Rob: We are on all social media platforms but Facebook is the best to catch our everyday business. Our sounds are found on Soundcloud and on most other other digital platform such as Spotify and Itunes. We have a website which we constantly update with our upcoming gig dates too,

which is http://www.thepurplelights.com.
