SONGS DEVELOPED BY THE HEART OF FOUR PIECE  ‘FOND OF RUDY’ AN INDIE POP VIBE AND A LATEST RELASE ‘THE LINE’ YOU NEED TO KNOW MORE ABOUT!

What are your names? 

 Matt, Ross, Otto, Si

What is the bands name? 

 Fond Of Rudy
How did you come up with the bands name? 

Our music essentially tries to encapsulate the feelings of being in and out of love. And the pursuit of it. ‘Fond of’ generally means really liking and being drawn to something but the Rudy part, you can consider as a blank space… you fill it in. We want people to draw their own meanings for what Rudy is to them whilst engaging in the music. Who do you love? What are you fond of?
What is your genre of music? 

Indie Pop…maybe?
Give us a little bio about you as a band and as individuals – 

Fond Of Rudy are an indie pop 4 piece band. The songs are developed from a heartfelt core, washed with stylistic references from 80s icons and revived a state of modernity through contemporary production.
Are you a signed? 

Unsigned
you have released ‘The Line’ , tell us more about it – 

song’s theme is frustration, figuring out the time to draw ‘The Line’ on a relationship, when being lead on

You have some gigs coming up where will you be performing?

 It has been quite a busy year, so 2 more gigs planned for the year, maybe 1 other one…who knows!

Where are you most looking forward to play? 

Loved playing at the festivals this year, so it would be amazing to have more of the same next year
Can you tell us more about the EP you are set to release early next year?

 It’s called ‘TWO’, it will have 4/5 tracks on it, more developed and bigger than the last…it has been great fun and emotional to record, hopefully listeners will be taken on a bit of journey with this EP
Do you have any collaborations coming up with any other artists or bands? 

Could potentially be some remixes for one or two songs of the EP, watch this space
What made you go in to music? 

Entertainment, we all love creating. It’s what we do…have a passion for and what we get the most enjoyment out of on a daily basis
Do you play any instruments?
 The bands set up is 2 guitars, bass, drums and lot of other electronic triggers going on…it can get a little bit mental
Who are your influences? 

Everyone in the band draws a slightly different influence, one thing we can all agree on is that we love 80s music – that is definitely a point of reference for our music, trying to create an 80s sound but developing it to be a modern facing record
How do you get inspiration to write songs?

 The trials and tribulations of love
Where do you see yourself now in 5 Years? 

5 years…headlining Glastonbury…haha joking, who knows, nobody can predict the future…we just want to enjoy now and keep creating more new music
When you’re not doing music, what do you do? 

We all work the day shift in our lives, other than that we like to keep fit with some form of exercise every week
What was the song you listened to most that influenced you to go more in to the music scene?

That is a really difficult question, not sure that can be pinned down to one song. Michael Jackson was pretty inspiring…Prince…Fleetwood Mac…all epic, couldn’t pick one!
What’s the best advice you have ever been given?

 This one resonates – “Be nice to people on your way up because you’ll meet them on your way down”

What advice would you give to aspiring musicians not about the industry and just as an artist? As an artist, create an exterior or shell for rejection…you will get a thousand no’s before you get a yes. If you do obtain that yes, make the most of it


What quote or saying do you always stick by? 

Well I reckon it’s the previous advice answer
When you are at a gig, what are 5 things you cannot forget? 

5 things, hmm…instruments (Forgotten a guitar before) laptop, headphones, guitar plectrums, an alcoholic beverage for Si, too many things to list…we have a list that we need to tick off before we head off for a gig – #organisation

REVIEW: US ARTIST HITS UP A STORM WITH BRAND NEW SELF TITLED ALBUM ‘MELANIE TAYLOR’

Melanie Taylor is a singer,songwriter always bettering herself with every release she brings out, it’s definitely safe to say she blows my mind everytime she does release a new track. 

The album is a very upbeat with that awesome pop electric vibe that instantly gets you moving to the dance floor to just let your hair down and makes you forget or just literally go out and have the time of your life. 

Each track completely different but still keeps in theme throughout.
Track 1 ‘Money’ the one that’s lifts you and gives the album open doors which you just walk through. 
Track 2 ‘ Taste ‘ the opposite of ‘Money’ a more slowed down track yet still the pop vibe and sang with professionalism throughout and very catchy. 
Track 3 ‘Tryna’ probably a song you can relate to so you just take a rest and listen too it whilst sitting in your room,at the beach. 

The instrumental feel is so unique and still keeps you intrigued to see what the rest of the album will be like 

This is just three of the NINE track on Melanie’s Album so if you want to hear more this is your cue to grab a copy right here;

HERTFORDSHIRE ARTIST ELLIE JANE CHATS MAKING HER DREAMS COME TRUE AND NEW EP’CLOCKS’ 

  

What is your name?  

 Ellie Jane

 

What is your genre of music?  Singer songwriter

 

Give us a little bio about you. 

I grew up in a little council estate in Ware Hertfordshire and am 20 years old. I’ve been singing professionally for about 6 years now but have always sang for as long as I can remember. I have been involved with a few collaborations that managed to get airplay on Radio 1, and managed to get to the final of Open Mic UK.

 

Are you a signed? 

No

 

You are set to release EP , ‘Clocks’, can you tell us more about that?  

It was released on the 21st October and recorded in Gloucestershire. All the tracks are based on real life events that have happened to me and so it’s very personal to me as I am completely opening up to anyone who wants to listen.

 

Describe each track using three words

 Clocks – relatable, honest, powerful

Lights Go Down – strong, encouraging, brave

Can’t Keep Up with You – funky, fun, modern

Beautiful Downfall – liberating, emotional, happy

Who Are You, impacting, pretty, big

Fickle – vulnerable, painful, vengeful.

 

Will we see any gigs or maybe even a tour with this EP ‘Clocks’?

I’ve got a few local gigs planned around Hertfordshire way I’ll be advertising for those on social media (@elliejanemusic) and am hopefully going to be putting a spanner in the works for a mini tour early 2017.

 

 

You performed at Open Mic UK and got to the final how was that?

 To be honest it was intimidating and there were times where I didn’t feel good enough. It was a good gain of experience of performing for me.

 

 

Where is your dream venue to play in the UK? 

 02 Arena

Where is your dream venue to play anywhere overseas? 

  The Superbowl in the US. If you get asked to do that you know you’re successful.

 

Do you have any collaboration with any other artists in the planning?  

  I plan to write with as many different artists as possible as that is the way you grow as a musician.

 

What made you go in to music? 

 There wasn’t exactly a trigger I have just always sang since I was old enough to play with Barbies and things so it’s just always been it for me and it’s the only thing I have patience go stick at.

 

Do you play any instruments? 

 I taught myself really basically to play piano and guitar to have an accompaniment to write to but I’m not massively confident.

 

Who are your influences? 

 Florence and The Machine, Amy Winehouse, James Bay, Kendrick Lamar and other hip hop influences.  

 

How do you get inspiration to write songs? 

  All of my songs are based on real life events. I use hip hop as a massive inspiration because their wordplay and their flows are incredible and actually mean something. It makes me want to write important and expressive lyrics rather than just words to fill 3 minutes.

 

Where do you see yourself now in 5 Years? 

 At the moment, I’d like to have done 2 or 3 tours throughout the UK and overseas, have an album or 3 under my belt and be able to call music my full time job.

 

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

 I do uni work! I’m in my final year of uni studying multimedia journalism so my schedule is pretty hectic.

 

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

 As I said there wasn’t really a trigger it was just something that I’ve always done. Albums like Usher ,Confessions inspired me to write more mature and adventurous lyrics.  

 

 

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

 JK Rowling got rejected something like 50 times before someone agreed to publish her, now pretty much every single person in the entire world knows about Harry Potter even if they haven’t seen it. don’t give up.

 

 

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

 It’s easy to let things consume you and distract you in this business, but when something is stopping your love for writing or putting you off, that something isn’t okay and the love of what you do should always come first. Social media is the answer to everything.

 

 

What quote or saying do you always stick by? 

Keep going and just get things done.

 

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

 Warm up routine.

Vocal pastels

Food

Equipment/instruments

Water

 

You work with Lime Jam PR, how did that come about?  

 To be honest I can’t remember exactly it sort of just happened. I think it was through mutual friends and a friend of my mum’s passed her details to Ellis and Julia at Lime Jam. We had a conversation about how we could work together and cracked on!  

 

You are away from home on tour for ages and you get back, where is your go to place in your hometown? 

 To wherever my dog is at that time, probably my mum’s house.

 

 

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

 @elliejanemusic for everything!

REVIEW: THE SCHEME BOYS ARE ONE FOR SURPRISES ESPECIALLY WITH THE RELASE OF THEIR NEW EP ‘JEROME HEIGHTS’ OUT 28TH OCTOBER 2016

For many months now we are non stop hearing of the London trio from working with charity Jeans For Genes , working with Smiley and announcing they are the support for Union J on their tour to their NOW THEIR NEW EP! 

Starting the the EP is ‘Can’t Stop’ a song that creates that pop-Rock track that just carries you in to musical bliss.
Next up we have ‘Somebody Else’s Perfect’ ‘A smooth yet so empowering song which creates a message to everyone TO REALIZE YOUR OWN SELF WORTH because there is only one of you and that is all the world needs!

Next up is ‘Socialite’ ,

A very upbeat rhyming track that you turn your head instantly. 

The pop vibe takes me back on this track to when I was younger yet so 21st century.

Track 4 ‘Somebody Else’s Perfect’ again but features artist Lisa who brings the track a whole new meaning and sound in a spectacular way that you won’t not have this on repeat. 

Check out the video for Somebody Else’s Perfect

Are you a signed?

Oh I should’ve read this question before. lmao yeah im signed.
You are set to release your debut record, tell us more about the story behind the name ‘Bedhead Level 1’ .

I decided on BedheadPt1 for a couple of things:

– the album is a 2 piece set that we wanted to release on different days, around 6 months apart from each other.

Describe each of the tracks in two words.

Dance All Night: summer vibes

Neverland: Fantasy adventure

I dont think i’ll be touring this year, but i have shows set for me.I’m trying to set up a tour with some cool artists around Jan or Feb. But we’ll see any opportunities that come my way and figure it out from there.

If So where will you be heading?

I want to tour national for the time being, but definitely would like to tour internationally and see the world.

Will you be releasing any videos with your new record, if so which tracks, can you tell us?

i’ll tell you one im definitely releasing, Dance All Night’. It should be coming out generally around the same time as the album.We should be doing some more, but I want it to be a surprise. ;P
Do you play any instruments?
I play guitar and piano and the ocarnia, I wanna learn the drums too but I wanna get better at guitar and piano first.

Who are your influences?

uh I guess sonically my music influence is Ne-Yo and Usher. I want to be a great musician though, like Michael Jackson.
How do you get inspiration to write songs?
I write my music as a way to vent.So usually if im going through something in my life I’ll just write about it and make it into a song. Doesnt have to be a bad thing,it could be a good thing. Like idk how to handle my emotion haha, so when im super happy ill write and when I’m down I write 

Where do you see yourself now in 5 Years?

In 5 years i see myself touring around the worldwith 3 albums out atleast, a nice car that doesnt break down on me all the time,and having already bought my parents dream house on a beach.

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

im literallyat work from 8-5 on Mondays -Fridays and 9-5 on Saturdays, so just work all the time. I like to read, but usually listen to audiobooks instead because I dont get to much time to read.

I also like to write stories, like i want to be an author. I also want to get into acting but right now, I work and I play music.

Where would your dream venue to play in your hometown?
In my hometown? i guess the Savemart Centre. Since its the only real venue we have.
For anyone vistiting California,where would you reccommend them to go?
Cities would be Los Angeles or The Bay. I prefer LA though. The beaches there are to die for. I guess mueseums are cool too though. but definitely absolutely have to go to Yosemite. The national park is breathtaking all the time. im into nature though so, yeah.
if you could collaborate with one UK Artists or Band who would it be?
The only artists I can think of are Zayn Malik and Niall Horan. Oh and Adele but she out sings me in every way, so id rather write her a song to sing lmao.

If you could collaborate with one US Artists or Band who would it be?

H i guess if its just for me personally, Tech N9ne. Im a huge fan. I want him to rip bars on like a slow song of mine , It’d be so perfect.

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

I honestly couldnt say. I love MJ growing up so probably like Dirty Diana or Billie Jean or something.

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

“do it because you love to do it, not because you have to do it .” and ” Just have fun with it” 

I used to be really concerned with whar people would say about me or think about m, but my pops always told me that i didnt need to impress anybody, because I loved it. And as long as I

enjoyed what I loved, then i dont need to care what anybody thinks.

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

Have fun with music, it shouldnt be taken so seriously to the point where you start resenting. Remember why you got involved with music and if you ever feel discouraged, look at where you started.

What quote or saying do you always stick by?

Lmao the quote that popped into my head immediately was ” Life is like a box of chocolates , you never know what your going to get.”
When you are at a gig, what are 5 things you cannot forget? 
The set, the atmosphere,the lyrics,the crowd and the equipment

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

Everybody can follow me on IG or Twitter @WeWantOmar and my FB page is @omarmusicx if you wanna go give it a like.You can also find my music on Itunes,Soundcloud,Spotify,google play, amazon and YouTube!
