Originally from Belgium, Romanie relocated to Melbourne a few years ago and found herself in the midst of the COVID pandemic and a number of lockdowns: events that can create anxiety and uncertainty for locals, feelings that can only be even more exaggerated if you are far from home. This bleeds into Roanie’s new single, …

Sometimes you uproot your life right before a global pandemic, which is to say that it was incredibly unfortunate timing for Canadian Dylan MacDonald when he did that early last year, moving to Toronto where it rapidly became clear that his only option was to focus on writing music – it was a fraught but …

We are very pleased to premiere the new track ‘Tide In Tide Out’ from Aphra. ‘Tide In Tide Out’ is a bright and effervescent track that has a folkish tinge and an aquatic, seaside feel about it – lapping waves and seagulls sounds give way to a bright pace and a muscular pop melody. The …

In February, the Vermont-based Moira Smiley released her most recent album In Our Voices, her attempt to reconnect with the world of a capella singing from which she came – regularly performing with VOCO, their plans for a tour of the US in early 2020 were scuppered for obvious reasons.

He’s the artist that inspired many, following his own singer-songwriter journey that truly is adaptable to the times. He has released a beauty of a song ‘ Sort of Revolution’ ahead of his upcoming Album “IIUII” ( …

ARCH GARRISON, whose lovely odyssey of modern Wessex psych-pastoralism The Bitter Lay we loved for all its exploration of thorny byways last year; a half-dozen or so long-playing outings in the North Sea Radio Orchestra; even back before the century’s turn, a solitary album with Shrubbies. In all these incarnations we’ve enjoyed and explored the …

TEXAN solo guitar practitioner and melodicist Cameron Knowler – whose lovely, exploratory album with Eli Winter, Anticipation, we fully embraced in early March – is unveiling his very first solo album with American Dreams this coming week. A lifelong Westerner and recent Los Angeles transplant, Knowler spent his childhood in Yuma, Arizona and Houston, Texas, …

Milano-based troubadour Stefano De Stefano has been keenly admired by Backseat Mafia since our very birth when we lauded his band Pipers back in 2013 and then his solo stuff under the name An Early Bird. Stefano has shown dedication and passion for his craft throughout the years we have known him: beautifully composed and …
