Introducing – Ella Bee

Published

on

Ella Bee is a 16 year old singer songwriter based in London. The Australian born singer moved to London at the age of 14 in pursue of a music career and has done just that. Since a young age she has always wanted to be a singer and knew nothing more; playing guitar for over ten years and writing songs.

After seeing her perform at Paddington Basin in London I was convinced she was one to look out for, but little did I know she had already kick started her career. Ella has written over 50 songs and continues doing so now. She has recorded her debut album “Next in Line” which was independently released on iTunes on the 5th of January this year. “Next in Line” has given the singer great recognition within the industry leading her to work on her new album and helping her discover her sound. Paul Weller seemed to enjoy her set at Paddington not long ago, and complimented the young singer on her efforts.

Ella is still in the process of discovering her true sound and she says that her debut helped her realise what she wanted. She would like to implement more “live instruments” in her new music and would like to play with a live band. She takes inspiration from “classic female rockers” such as Joan Jett, and her favourite band currently is Bombay Bicycle Club. Her debut single “Wannabe” was premiered on Vevo with over 6K views and positive comments, Ella made sure to stun listeners with her great lyrics and amazing vocal range which she didn’t fail to demonstrate live.

The 16 year old is set to start at ELAM (East London Art and Music) college funded by Universal in September. She is currently taking part in the Mayor of London’s Gig Busk competition and through that has managed to play in pitches all around London. She is also lined up to perform on the main stage at Lovebox 2016!

At her age it is clear that she has achieved a lot and will continue doing so in future. For the time being you can catch her performing with GIGS or The Rolling Stock in Shoreditch (London). Make sure you give her music a listen and give her a vote! She is going far.

Interview with – Pioneers

Published

on

Pioneers are set to play a huge headline show at The Loft tonight in Southampton. With support from Fret-Buzz favourites KICKS, this is going to be a gig to remember. So, to get you hyped for tonight, here’s an interview the guys we did a while back with a few pics so you know what to expect and what they look like.

Introduce yourselves

Hi, I’m Toby and I’m lead guitarist.

I’m Sam and I do the vocals.

I’m Charlie and I’m the drummer.

I’m Bailey and I play the bass.

Where are you guys from?

Were all from the Totton and Marchwood area in Southampton – so very local

How long have you been together?

About a year and a month – so not long. End of December 2016. We agreed on new years eve that year to make the band. We’ve done other things with other people before, but this is the only thing that’s really clicked from the beginning. A lot’s happened in a year.

How did you form together – what made it stick?

Sam said we should make the band – that was literally it. Charlie and Bailey just basically picked up an instrument and learnt it for the band. They didn’t play before. Baileys learnt the bass and Charlie’s learnt drums for the band. Me and toby have played guitar for a while with other people, we’ve done a lot of practising on our own but never had someone to fill the roles of a drummer and bassist. We actually did it for a couple of months in school, but Sam didn’t admit that he could sing so we gave up because we didn’t have vocals. Charlie then said he was learning drums again, Sam admitted he could sing, we were wowed, so we started again.

Biggest inspiration?

Our common interest is the Arctic Monkeys but our sound is made from everyones individual inspirations. Toby likes his more Pop Punk music, so when we go heavier that’s more inspired by him. I’m [Sam’s] more into Jamie T, Slaves. Charlie likes more Blossoms, Foals and bands like that. And Bailey only listens to Stereophonics.

You’ve had a single and EP out – how have they been received?

Take Time was really well received, it got on Radio 1, everyone loves that song and it always goes off when we play it. The EP has been taken really well too, a favourite seems to be To Be Cool – that’s the next song we’re pushing. All the tracks are so different so all the feedback we’ve had about each song has been from completely different people. It’s all been good feedback so we’re happy with that. We already know that Take Time is always going to be that song that people are waiting for at a show because it just got picked up so quickly by everyone.

Highlight of 2017?

Headlining The Joiners for the EP launch show – we sold it out at the end so I don’t think it could have gone much better. Meeting Liam Fray from The Couteeners because I’ve liked that band for ages and he sent us a tweet supporting us and telling us we’re going in the right direction.

What’s in store for 2018?

Well, what isn’t? We’re really pushing for festivals in the summer – I think that’s the next logical step for us exposure-wise because people who go to festivals are going for the experience rather than for a certain band, so it’s going to be more people discovering us for the first time. Hopefully there’ll be some news of that upcoming soon.

Literally booking as many gigs as possible. we’ve got our setlist now and we know it’s solid, so we’re trying to play as many shows as we can wherever it is. We have a big show at The Loft at the end of March with Atmos Music – that’s the next big step for us.

Favourite venue played?

It’s still The Joiners probably because of the sound quality and the music being in your face – the drums are loud, the guitars are loud, everyday loves it.

The Music Box in Salisbury is good too. It’s like some weird little night club. You play upstairs, it has sticky floors, and it’s quite busy – in Salisbury, the weirdest of places.

Recommend local bands?

Circus Of Five. They supported us at our last show and a lot of people came up to me and said they really liked that band play played before us. Cool guitar music, good drums, a nice lead singer. There’s the Dead Freights. They’re quite bluesy and quite rock n roll.

Posh Ellen, they’re a new band who seem to be quite good. And we do like Kicks as well, probably for their attitude, they have that rock n roll thing going on.

Why should people come to your gigs?

Firstly for the atmosphere. It’s just got better as we go on. There’s a sort of diehard amount of people who come to most shows, we didn’t think our music is the sort that you can bounce around to, but they seem to like to bounce around to it – they make it work.

The quality of the music is equal to the quality of the atmosphere and the crowd. A lot of people who don’t know our songs say they can still enjoy it based on the whole experience which gets us a really great reception.

Final words?

Listen to our EP and wait for some upcoming festival news. Keep an ear out, there may be another EP coming out at the end of the year.

Tibican raising awareness for Lupus UK through release of charity single ‘Your Kisses Work’

Published

on

Tibican are a London based alternative indie band with a sound flatteringly likened to that of giants Foals and Wolf Alice. 

Consisting of Dom Scialo, Peter Saunby, Cathal Wharton, Tom McKay and Marc Saunders. Their Indie style coupled with their live performances make Tibican one of London’s most up and coming unsigned bands, earning them rave reviews along the way.

Their debut ‘When You Love Your Love’ was picked up by BBC Introducing and since featured on several international stations.

Regarding new single ‘Your Kisses Work’ the band explain:

“It’s been a long process but we’re ecstatic to finally announce the launch of ‘Your Kisses Work’ as part of our campaign to raise awareness for Lupus UK, The Lupus Foundation of America & St Thomas Lupus Trust”.

Lupus is a chronic and currently incurable auto-immune disease believed to be affecting thousands of people throughout the UK and about 5 million worldwide, of which 90% are female.

Having experienced within the Tibican family what life is like living with Lupus, they have decided to release their first charity single. All profits will be donated to the three charities mentioned above and we hope more people will become aware of the condition.

Available via all major online distributors and streaming services.

First 150 downloads will receive B-Side ‘Wolf’ FREE
