This week on Amazing Breakfast we have a super talent behind our Track of the Week.
The striking (to say the least) girl in the picture is Kyla La Grange.
Her sound: comparisons vocally to Kate Bush are undeniable, but it's not a bad thing to be compared to one of the most original and unique stars alive today!
Her song‐writing ability is apparent with her debut single Walk Through Walls, which will be played on the show between 7–10am every day this week on Amazing Radio.
The deliciously dreamy and epic B‐side is called Courage.
Watch out. This gal's got it. Only a matter of time before hits the big time.
Her first single, a split 7″ is out in March on Pure Groove.
Folk band Matt Norris and the Moon are our Artist of the Week on Amazing Breakfast this week.
We'll be playing a different track from their back catalogue each day on the show and then will be hearing from the very lovely Matt himself on Wednesday morning between 9–10am.
If you're into Mumford and Sons, no doubt you will dig these guys. We hear from Matt in the interview about the perils of sharing a similar sound and how they are trying to move away from that.
Rather good is that new material is on the way in 2011.
They've got a fair few gigs coming up in the north of the UK during February so well worth seeing live.
LISTEN TO THE INTERVIEW HERE.
Check them out in action here. Can't get enough of the brass on this!
Last night (Friday 7th February) I went and saw James Blake headline at the Borderline in Soho.
As compere John Kennedy from Xfm said, as hundreds of people were crammed in eagerly awaiting Mr Blake, this is the "hottest ticket in town". He was right.
So many stars, Tom from Groove Armada were there, Matt Horne was in attendance, as was T4 presenter Miquita Oliver. I mean, Bono was probably lurking there somewhere!
Like a country cousin I managed to get in, not because of any musical connections I might have, this time, but because my friend designs for Ted Baker and they were sponsors!
It was an awesome gig. He played Limit To Your Love, his Feist cover that has got him some serious notice, early on in the set and the mega bass was making the whole place rattle.
But by far my favourite of all was The Wilhelm Scream. Caw blimey...the production on that is blinding. Check it:
