CHRIS deBURGH – THE...

‘The Hands of Man’ finds Chris maintaining his focus as a singersongwriter of unique vision and craft. “I think you have to grow with your ideas, your songs and your music, and that is what I’ve tried to do,” he says. “On the new record, my intention was to reflect who I am today and the things that I think about.” To that end, ‘The Hands of Man’ – its title and opening song of the same name referencing both the good and bad done by humankind – is a collection of 15 diverse songs “concerning what I’ve been thinking about in recent months and years.” The album has been thoughtfully and carefully compiled to be listened to like a vinyl record, in two distinct parts, ‘Sunrise’ and ‘Sunset’. “The record is a cornucopia of music and emotion,” says Chris, “and I hope the fans out there will be very surprised not only by the strength of the song writing, but also at the ...

STOMPIN’ TOM CONNORS &...

Stompin’ Tom Connors: New Collector’s Series presents re‐issues of classic Stompin’ Tom Connors albums plus ‘Stompin’ Tom Sings Old Time Favourites Volume 01’, a brand new collection containing songs not available since the early 1970’s and never on CD until now! In the very early stages of Tom’s career before the Phenomenon, around 1969, Stompin’ Tom Connors managed to record sixty of his favourite old‐time country and western songs, which were released on Dominion Records in a five LP box set. These are songs that Tom grew up with; songs that he learned because they spoke to him deeply. His mother loved the popular country songs of the day and would sing them to her son while standing in front of a mirror. These were brighter moments of their life, and the songs meant everything to a child reared in poverty. These collections released as ‘Stompin’ Tom Sings 60 Old Time Favourites’ and as a follow‐up set ‘Stompin’ ...

MISTERWIVES – OUR OWN...

MisterWives – MisterWives are: Mandy Lee (Vocals), Etienne Bowler (Drums), Will Hehir (Bass), Marc Campbell (Guitar) and Jesse Blum (Keys/Trumpet/Accordion). The band began making music together in late 2012. Lee, the powerhouse vocalist, was born and raised in Queens and acts as the band’s principal songwriter. She studied songwriting and opera at NYC’s only specialized public high school for music and performing arts, laying a foundation for her incredible range and giving her the ability to explore a wide variety of vocal styles. Lee met Hehir through a mutual friend and shortly thereafter was introduced to Bowler, a Bronx native, while the two were working at restaurants a block away from one another in Manhattan. The three shared a mutual love for music and similar aesthetic sensibilities and banded together to form the core of MisterWives. When it came to time to round out the live band, Bowler brought old friends Jesse Blum and Marc Campbell on board. They ...
