Greysha – Gold Glaze

From Shropshire, Greysha,19, has found motive within her music, using this to channel her thoughts and tell stories.

Nurturing her listeners to accept their dark beauty and rawness, Greysha aims to connect with her listeners- the complex, the messy, the dark – to provide them with music that transports them to a world of their own.

Fans of Lorde, Lana Del Rey and Meg Myers will be well at home with Greysha’s wavy sounding guitars, alternative sounds and compelling lyrics.

Greysha devotes herself to her music and is excited about her future as a musician.

Tony Whiting’s Mad Summer ft. Shirlie Roden

Tony Whiting is a songwriter from Sussex, England. As well as working on his solo music, he is also the co leader/songwriter for the band The Golgis, a popular live band around the south of England.

Tony is currently working on the follow up to his debut album, and is set to release his new single on the 2nd February. ‘Mad Summer’ features the incredible Shirlie Roden, who has been involved in many successful musical endeavours since the 1970’s, including working with David Gilmour, The Kinks and Suzi Quatro.

Tony doesn’t use social media for his solo project, so if you are looking to tag Tony, it may be worth tagging The Golgis stating it’s Tony’s solo project from the band, featuring Shirlie Roden (who has social media artist pages).

DEAF BEN are a new transatlantic funk rock duo, consisting of Lloyd Birch and Dave Cotterill.

Lloyd, who is based in Los Angeles, and Dave, who lives in Stourbridge, are friends of more than 20 years, having met at college and later playing in bands together between 1998 and 2004. During this time, they could regularly be seen on the Birmingham and Black Country gig circuit, thumping out their own brand of funk rock, inspired by the likes of Rage Against the Machine, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Reef.

Despite being more than 5,000 miles apart, the result was electric and so the band’s melodic funk rock style was born. Dave and Lloyd play all instruments and record themselves in their private studios.

Deaf Ben’s first single ‘Sign it Back’ was released in  Summer 2020 followed by ‘Kerosene’ in February 2021

Available on all major streaming platforms
