Amy Winehouse At The BBC, a retrospective collection which chronicles many of the singer’s outstanding performances during her career, will be released on 7 May 2021 through UMC/Island. For the first time ever, this expanded release offers audio-only versions of the songs featured on earlier compilations A Tribute To Amy Winehouse by Jools Holland and …

We ran into Trent Halliday so to speak in the Summer of last year, here, with his rather lovely track ‘Get Close’, a mixture of folk, English charm and just a touch of psychedelia. He went onto release an album ‘Declare’ full of such treats later in the year. Recently, he’s returned with a new …

Taken from his rather extraordinary debut album ‘I, the bastard’, out now via Empty Street Records, Wassailer, aka Will Serfass, agreed to record the albums opening track Foreplay live in session for Backseat Mafia. Whereas on the album the track is a glitchy, synth led track that approaches electronic soul, in the hands of Serfass …

We’ve already had Yorkshire raised singer-songwriter The Last Morrell in session once before, and it created such a spark that we couldn’t wait to get him back in. Or maybe, he sent us another track recorded at the same time, and we love him so much here at Backseat Mafia we couldn’t do anything but …

Dutch composer George van Wetering has been releaseing doses of his odd-ball pop for a while now under the moniker of Monokino, and we were struck by the brilliant ‘Bend or Break‘ he brought out at the end of last month. He’s worked with the likes of Tony Visconti and Kristee Young as well as …

Blues-Psych troubadour John J Presley has just revealed his new Albany Sessions album, out last Friday, made up from tracks recorded at home over lockdown, with is trusty guitar, and pretty much nothing else. Recorded at home in Brighton, and recording, producing and mixing everything himself, the record is available on a beautiful translucent-red vinyl …

Following on from his recent EP ‘Sarcasm’, where he really introduced himself, Yorkshire born singer-songwriter The Last Morrell has recorded a version of the stand out single from the EP, The Party, live for us here at Backseat Mafia, and we’re delighted to exclusively release it today. Having already performed with the likes of Tom …

We’ve featured indie-folk duo The Brothers Landau (aka David Landau on cello and vocals, and multi-instrumentalist, singer and guitarist brother Daniel) before, and were absolutely delighted when the brothers agreed to do an At Home Session version of the title track from their recent EP Haven’t Got A Name for us here at Backseat Mafia. …

With his album ‘Love Valley’ out at the end of the week, we’re delighted that Canadian singer-songwriter Michael Bernard Fitzgerald has recorded an At Home Session exclusively for Backseat Mafia, featuring one of the songs Taken from the album, I love that sound. The album saw Michael make a set of songs that are warm …
