'Letters Under Floorboards' is the highly anticipated follow-up to Hannah Rose Platt’s critically acclaimed debut success 'Portraits'. The new album features 11 tracks of original material, this time fusing Platt’s celebrated lyrical story-telling with striking and arresting personal narratives. Her melodic, poetic and powerful music offers self-written narratives to ordinary people who had no one to unfurl their stories; tales of luck, stoicism, loneliness, love, heartbreak and hope. She warmly builds characters like an author, penning songs that almost eavesdrop on other people's lives.

New Album: Beth Hart – War In My Mind

4 september 2019|Categorieën: Releases|Tags: |

Beth Hart is as real as it gets. At a time when other musicians polish their songs, airbrush their image, conceal their blemishes, deny their age and bury their darkest secrets, this is one artist who throws down her cards and invites you to either walk or love her anyway. And with 'War In My Mind', this Grammy-nominated talent has never served herself up so raw, on a record that embraces her merits and flaws, channels her bittersweet headspace and spins gold from her demons. And now, with 'War In My Mind', this songwriter has made a record that bares her soul, represents her warts-and-all, and makes no apology for it.

Richville – Richville

3 september 2019|Categorieën: Releases|Tags: , , |

Organisch, intuïtief en ongepolijst. Dit is in het kort de omschrijving van het album “Richville” van Richard van Bergen ( zang, gitaar ) en Jeroen JJ Goossens ( drums, percussie ) dat in september uitkomt op Tub Thumper Records. Waar een cd opname over het algemeen tot in de puntjes wordt voorbereid koos Richville voor een heel andere aanpak: Vertrouwend op ruim 20 jaar vriendschap, hun liefde voor Rootsmuziek en slechts gewapend met een handvol ruwe schetsen, hooks en grooves werd een studio geboekt.

Ibrahim Maalouf kondigt elfde album aan

21 augustus 2019|Categorieën: Releases|Tags: |

De Frans-Libanese jazztrompettist en componist Ibrahim Maalouf heeft zijn elfde studioalbum 'S3NS' aangekondigd. Maalouf staat bekend om zijn vermogen klassiek, jazz en Arabische muziek moeiteloos te mengen met zijn herkenbare, mystieke trompetsound. Zijn muziek klinkt fris, maar toch nostalgisch. Niet echt jazz, niet echt pop, bij vlagen zelfs rock. Ondefinieerbaar, maar toch fijn, precies zoals we van Maalouf gewend zijn.
