Josh Taerk (Album)


THIS special edition of Josh Taerk’s debut album is one that I think might be worth a listen.

It features a collection of 10 pop-rock tracks as well as four acoustic tracks that help show off his true talent.

The sound of the album is a bit classic rock with obvious inspiration from the likes of Bruce Springsteen.

I think that it is fair to say that, while not groundbreaking, this record will interest those who like Springsteen and other similar stars.

It can be thrown on and enjoyed on a quite afternoon but will not pull up any trees.

Make my day

Emma Stevens (Single)


AS the sun continues to shine down on the area, throwing on this track by Emma Stevens may go to brightening up the day of anyone.

The singer/songwriter has crafted a wonderful little tune that fits in timely with the summer months and is quite refreshing.

The song is very pop but also has influences of folk and indie music, so there really is a little bit for almost everyone to enjoy.

While not spectacular, this is a solid start by this artist and she really is one to keep an eye on in the coming months and years.

Lay down your love

Red Sky July (Single)


THIS is the first single from the bands new album called ‘Shadowbirds’.

Fans of the band will know what they are getting but for those who do not the track is packed full of great harmonies, top melodies and plenty of signature guitar.

This is all infused with an American country twang despite the band being from London.

This type of music is not really my cup of tea but it did not annoy me and was easy to listen to.

Would I rush out and buy the album - no.

But this is not the worst song in the world.
