REVIEW: ROBYN REGAN RELEASED HER LATEST EP ‘ THIS LOVE’ BACK IN JANUARY BUT I STILL LOVE IT NOW!

Robyn Regan has been in TV but decided its the music she loves more!
This Love EP is 5 tracks of well written and sang songs that you will always want to listen too!

Track 1 is the title of the whole EP ‘ This Love’ a heavy drum beat with claps and vocals come straight through giving you the true honesty of the track when Robyn sings.
When you listen to the lyrics you feel them, they are so honest and you can hear this though the vocals and its very sweet.

 
Track 2 ‘ Dream’ says a lot in the title here I think here, still wanting to work on her dreams from when she was a ‘Little Girl’, ‘Wanting to be a Princess’ but now being ‘older and wiser’ being a princess is not her dream but the song still represents all her other dreams.
The instrumental of this tracks just fits with the theme of Dreams and thats great to have because you can really relate and understand.

 

 

Track 3 ‘ Home’ has a solid beat which just lets you really engage with the song and carries you along, this sounds so much more personal than any of the other songs on the EP being about her dad in a ‘Foreign Country’ and I think writing a song with such strong lyrics/meaning helps Robyn and will help a lot of other people going through the same situation.

 

 

Track 4 ‘Separate Ways’ about heartbreak, liking or even falling in love with someone who you was once with is always hard going our ‘Separate Ways’ and I think Robyn writing this track tells you that it can be a good thing going our separate ways and it is because there will be someone out there who treats you the way you should be.
With a high performance,instrumental and originality throughout this is a song you would listen to after all the rubbish whats happened and just think ‘ forget him’

 
Track 5 ‘ Oh I’ The vocal melody is very interesting and original which is great to hear in a song.Robyn’s vocals are very consistent throughout the whole song which is great in a track because it makes you want to re-listen to it also her vocals are silvery which is pleasant to listen to!

 

All 5 songs are brilliant but I do have to say ‘Home’ is my favourite such a powerful message and emotion in the track which a lot of people are going through and this song could really help a lot.

SKYLER CHISSELL IS READY SET THE MUSIC ON ‘FIRE’ CHECK OUT MORE ABOUT WHAT THE NEW SENSATION IS ABOUT WITH MY INTERVIEW WITH HER!

What is your Full Name?

Skyler Chissell

 

How old are you?
I am 16 years old

 

What is your genre of music?
Well my debut track “Fire” is a mixture of urban/dance as Snoop Dogg wanted to feature on the track and in the video, he also wrote his own lyrics which was amazing, but going forward my music is geared more around alternative/punk with a pop mix.

 

Give us a little Bio of you.
My Mum is English and grew up in Bournemouth and my dad is American so I have joint citizenship and spend my time between the UK and the US.  I was born in Virginia Beach, VA, and moved to California when I was 11 to pursue a modeling and acting career. I’m pretty much a typical 16 year old girl. I love going to the mall, hanging out with friends, and watching horror movies and vine videos of Nash Grier. When I’m not in the studio I love to spend time at the beach or go to the park with my rescue dog Mouse, and as an avid soccer fan I make sure I watch all of the Arsenal games.

 

How long have you been doing music?
I’ve been singing for fun as long as I can remember, but professionally only about 6 months. I worked with a music producer, Mike Gonsolin of Trend Def Studios in LA, on some cover songs which I wanted to put on youtube. I had so much fun working with him and the sound was great so he offered to write me an original song, which is “FIRE”.

 

What made you go into music?
Just simple passion. Music isn’t a job to me as I enjoy it so much. I can spend hours all day listening to and writing music and then all evening often until 1am in the studio recording. My whole allowance goes on downloading music or on old vinyl records that I collect.

 

Are you a signed Artist?
Not yet, but I do have some meetings scheduled in February and March so check back at #Skylersmusic for updates.

What instruments do you play?
Unfortunately none, I was taking piano lessons but my instructor and I would spend all lesson coming up with new song ideas and lyrics. I do want to take some time to learn guitar and drums going forward.

 

Who are your influences?
Christina Aguilera, Beyonce, The 1975, Hey Violet, Blink-182 and All Time Low.

 

When will your new material be out?
I have 3 more originals already recorded and produced which will be available on an EP in the beginning or mid-February, and my producer and I are currently working on a love ballad.

How do you get inspiration to write songs?
Everyday things really, my own experiences, people watching and places I visit, I also take away a lot from my friend’s stories about boy troubles and school. I will often go on the roof of my apartment building in LA late at night and just watch the stars which gives me a clear mind and enables me to write for hours without any interruptions.

 

Where do you see yourself in 2-5 Years?
Hopefully I will be lucky enough to make a career out of my passion and will be playing around the world, I love to travel and meet new people. I equally love to write as much as I do sing, so I would love to write songs for other artists. I would also like to get some animals friends for my rescue dog, Mouse from the LA Shelter.
You were discovered by Snoop Dogg, how did that come about?

My record producer, Mike Gonsolin, wrote “FIRE” for me as a solo track which originally had a second verse. When we heard the final recording we loved the result and he thought it was good enough and would be perfect for a feature with Snoop Dogg who he had worked with before. He sent Snoop Dogg my recording and he loved it. He not only wanted to feature but wanted to be in the video also and he wanted to personally write his own lyrics to make it more of collaboration with me. We spent all day from 8am through midnight shooting the video in an abandoned warehouse in downtown LA and when we weren’t shooting or on break Snoop Dogg mentored me on how to be successful and how to build a career.

 

What was your first reaction?
Beyond excited and a little nervous, it is not every day you get to work with such a living legend as Snoop Dogg, He was such an amazing person to work with.

 

You are releasing ‘Fire’, your Single later this month, tell us more about it.
Yes, the official release date for “FIRE” is Jan 29.  We are having a release party at my PR company in the UK and I am also scheduled for a two week promotional tour where I will appearing on TV shows and doing radio and press interviews in London, Birmingham, Exeter, Cambridge, Manchester, Liverpool and my home town of Bournemouth.

 

Will you be releasing an Album, if so when?
Yes, I will be releasing an EP of 4 songs plus a bonus track of a party remix of “Fire” this will be out start to mid-February. The new songs are amazing and I hope people will love them as much as I do.

 

Will you be heading out on Tour? if so where?
Nothing scheduled as yet but would certainly love to do so in the future and would love to open for some of my favorite bands such as the Vamps.

 

You are coming to the UK, what are you most excited about?
I had hoped to spend some time with my family, I have joint US/UK citizenship as my mother is English so I have many Aunts, Uncles and cousins there, but the interest in “FIRE” has been so amazing that I  have been invited to interview and guest appear on TV shows and in studio radio appearances across the country so I won’t get to spend as much time with them as I had hoped, but am beyond excited that I have this opportunity to promote my original songs and live my dream.

 

If you wasn’t doing music what would you be doing?
I have always been involved in animal rescue and volunteer at local animal shelters and my Mum manages a low cost veterinary clinic where I also help out, I am also obsessed with Penguins so my second career choice would be Marine Biologist to help save and rescue stranded and or endangered marine animals.

 

When you’re not doing music,what do you do?
If my Mum is reading this then schoolwork, if she isn’t then watching crazy vine videos of Nash Grier or watching horror movies with my friends. I also love the beach and spend a lot of time there with my friends and my dog, but pretty much I am always doing music in some capacity as I am always listening to or getting inspiration for music from what is around me wherever I am. My friends and I also get invited to a lot of parties on the weekends where we literally dance all night.

 

If you could collaborate with one UK Artist or band who would it be?
The Vamps seem like they would be really cool to work with not only because they have great music but they seem to have fun with it, and the fact they also hang out with Brooklyn Beckham doesn’t hurt!

If you could collaborate with one USA Artist or band who would it be?
It would have to be Christina Aguilera as her voice is amazing and I have idolized her since I was little, I have also covered her song “Hurt” because I loved how much emotion truly went into the song.

 

Where is your dream venue or festival to perform in UK?
I would love to perform at the O2 Arena in London because it would be super cool to be on a stage in the heart of England and I could catch an Arsenal match before the show. GO GUNNERS!
Where is your dream venue or festival to perform in USA?
I would have to say Madison Square Garden just because growing up I would hear people say that “ once you perform at Madison Square Garden you know that you’ve made it”.

 

What’s the best advice you have ever been given?
Work hard and stay true to yourself. Also, that there is a lot of rejection in this industry so never give up and don’t take it personally.

 

What advice would you give to aspiring musicians?
If you have a passion then never give it up even if people tell you that you won’t make it, everyone has a different opinion and if you work hard you will find where you belong.

 

What quote or saying do you always stick by?
I’m not a Princess and I don’t need saving, I’m a Queen I got this shit handled!

Our E.p. Tragic Figure is kinda of a down and out record. It’s really a record that explains how hard trying to make it as a musician can be. Failed relationships, constant rejection, ego, let downs. It can be rough. Writing this record was a form of therapy for me ha ha. 
 
Where do you see yourself in 2-5 Years?
Touring and making more records!!
 
 
When you’re not doing  music, what do you do?
Back in the day I used to go out a lot, I’m over it.  I like hiking and biking and camping.  Or binge watching shows on Netflix with my lady.  
 
 If you could collaborate with one UK Artist who would it be?
Mark Ronson.  Hands down. Uptown Funk reminds me of Morris Day and the time, it’s so good. And I love that he worked with Kevin Parker (Tame Impalla), he’s got great taste.

Nothing’s in music’s guaranteed, so make sure you love the music and people you surround yourself with.

LISA RONSON IS SET TO RELEASE HER BRAND NEW DEBUT ALBUM  ‘Emperors of Medieval Japan’ AND THIS IS ONE TO BE ON YOUR PLAYLIST!

Lisa Ronson knew where she was heading in the career ladder from a very young being brought up with music around her 24-7 with her family and now it’s time for Lisa to use her musical skills she’s learnt and take a dive in to the music scene SOLO,
Being born and brought in New York City and then relocating to London in 2012 it’s safe to say that Lisa is going to bring out great songs with both NY and London vibes mixed in but always have that originality especially with her vocals.

Let’s get talking about the album….

Staring song is an instrumental where you hear Lisa just talking giving you an insight of what the album is about but also a very heavy but slow instrumental all together.

Track two is a song which is called the title of the whole album ‘Emperors of Medieval Japan’.
This track is more upbeat than the first track which is fantastic with the soft piano coming through and when the electric guitar comes in you just know by adding that in to the mix creates a beautiful sound throughout.
Lisa vocals then come through and are very orotund and fantastically go together with the instrumental to create a piece of music you want to listen to and should be heard by you all.

Track three ‘One Lunar Month’ you straight away hear that drum and guitar and its great… I love this track! A again upbeat and really feel the synths pop genre with the echo’s of vocals in the background which gives you that space feel.
The vocal melody again is amazing, this would be one to remember and in a good way! Lisa vocals not just in this track in the whole album are very distinctive and edgy which you will love and want to put this on repeat.
The instrumental is very powerful and solid showing Lisa’s creativeness in the song.
Here is track number 6 ‘Shopping and F****** ‘for you to listen too!

This is just three of the songs on the 9 track album and if you want to hear more you will have to go get it when it is released on the 6th November 2015 … so not that long away, this is an album to not miss out on.

THE EXIT BLACK BOYS ARE ON THEIR WAY BACK WITH A BRAND NEW EP ‘ PREDATOR &PREY EP AND I HAVE TO SAY THIS IS THEIR BEST ONE YET!

Track 1 is a intro with sets the whole EP and gives you an insight of how its going to end and listening to this first its upbeat and will get you on your feet which is fantasti way to start off any EP/Album/Single.

Track 2 ‘BREATHE’ straight in with the rock genre shining straight through and Tony’s strong and husked vocals beaming thorugh amazingly.

Track 3 ‘ Mistake’ a slower and down beat track showing the various tones Tony is able to do.
With drums and bass and guitar coming in the back just makes the track seem very calm and close to them but still have the rock feel to it.

Track 4 ‘ Rise and Fall’ again slower than track two but still differnt to track 3 as the powerful rock feel tone in Tony’s voice comes out and makes the track even more unique,fun and wants to make air drum/ air guitar in your room.

Track 5 ‘On My Own’ seems a personal to the boys but also telling their story to maybe help their fans or just wanted to get it off their chest because holding on is hurting to much.
Now debuting this track the boys may feel they will do it ‘ On My (Their) Own’ because no one is going to put them down or let anything stop them from persuing their dream.

One-Way Song.
 
Where did the name come from? 
It’s taken from a Wyndham Lewis poem of the same name, a very underrated writer.
 
What are your full names?
Luke Gilfedder and Angus Macalister, we run the group. Danielle Roseler is a model from Manchester, originally from South Africa, and she is also involved with the group.
 
How old are you?
We are both 22.
 
What is your genre of music?
Alternative
 
Give us a little Bio of you as a band and individual.
We also run a Manchester theatre group ‘Finn Youth’ which began when we met at Manchester Grammar School. We turned down university to do ‘Finn Youth’, and we had shows at the Royal Exchange Manchester in 2012 & 2015 and on the West End also.
Luke was born in Warrington and Angus in Wilmslow, two very different places! Manchester is like the neutral ground. That’ll be reflected in the music. This first single is very Wilmslow – for better or for worse.
 
How long have you been doing music?
The group only started in Summer 2015, so not too long really! 
 
What made you go in to music?
Austerity and/or ‘La Dolce Vita’!
 
Are you a signed?
No, though we haven’t even looked for a label yet.
 
What instruments do you play?
We’re pretty much just the fundamentals – Guitars, Synth (the new Korg) Bass and Drums!
 
Who are your influences?
For music: Real Lies & John Barry. For books it’d be: Norman Mailer, Colin Wilson & Jonathan Meades – they’re all great.
 
When will your new material be out?
‘When I Was Bully’ – the first single, is out on the 17th October. 
 
Is there a Album coming out?
Definitely. The debut will be early next year. ‘Passionate Leave’ is the working title right now.
 
Will you guys be touring and where if you are? 
We will be doing a tour to support the album next year. It would be great to do some stuff outside of Manchester on that tour finally!
 
How do you get inspiration to write songs?
Inspiration is just life in 2015 really – everything seems to be getting better as it gets worse, everything is becoming more sensitive to nuance as it becomes more orthodox. Young people can sense – and shape through music, film & fashion – all of these changes, but they get too wrapped up in apathy to do anything about it.
 
Where do you see yourself in 2-5 Years?
Hard to predict really in the current climate! It’s all about outlasting yourself, keeping the group going strong, and on our terms, as best as we can.
 
When you’re not doing music, what do you do?
Let football and cheap alcohol shake us to the core. 
 
If you could collaborate with one UK Artist who would it be?
Robbie Williams
 
If you could collaborate with one USA Artist who would it be?
David Johansen
 
Where is your dream venue or festival to perform in UK?
The Ritz in Manchester would be good to play one day.
 
Where is your dream venue or festival to perform in USA?
The Grand Ole Opry.
 
What do you think of the Manchester music scene? And do you think Manchester could do more for unsigned artist? 
 
It is ok in places and there’s usually one good thing a week, but Manchester can be very caught up with ‘musical heritage’, and the main audiences seem to be dads or students, or both…
 
Scenes are always defined by the people who stand outside of them, you can’t ‘inject’ true difference by arts schemes, groups have to build their way up. So when something good comes, Manchester just needs to give it room, and humbly promote its difference.
 
What was the song you listened to most that influenced you to go more in to the music scene?
 
Good question… probably ‘A Thousand Lifetimes’ by Glen Campbell
 
What was the first song you wrote?
 
It was a song about a few nights in Marseille called ‘Riviera Nightmare’  – we developed it and it’s gonna make it onto the album we think!
 
What’s the best advice you have ever been given?
 
Never trust anyone without unaccounted-for years in them.
 
What advice would you give to aspiring musicians?
 
Do not project what might be, but what should be. 
 
What quote or saying do you always stick by?
 
“Life is hard when no-one knows the importance of it” – Nijinsky
 
When you are at a gig, what are 5 things you cannot forget?
 
All the usual things really:
 
– Is everyone there on time
– Is everyone in the right frame of mind 
– Is everything set up right
– If you’re working with people at the venue, making sure they are on the same page as you
– Stay behind for a drink afterward if the venue is alright!

Yes, everyone can follow 1WS (One-Way Song) on
