Sandy Kilpatrick single ‘Your Love is a Weapon’ to be taken from album ‘The Shaman’s Call’

An acoustic-folk singer-songwriter, Sandy Kilpatrick is now Portugal based having been born and raised in Scotland. His new album, ‘The Shaman’s Call’, is the latest stunning release in a career that has grown organically over time, with his sound echoing great songwriters as wide ranging as David Bowie and Damien Rice, while retaining his own unique take on the genre.

Those developing years have been spent surrounded by talents who have made it to the mainstream, such as close friend and New Order guitarist Phil Cunningham. Now Sandy Kilpatrick aims to follow in their footsteps.

Having lived in various parts of the UK before moving to Portugal to be with his family, Sandy Kilpatrick’s particular brand of accessible folk music has a well-travelled feel to it. Inspired by a wide ranging exploration of all of life’s experience as seen through Sandy Kilpatrick’s eyes as a writer, Sandy’s last album ‘Redemption Road’ was notable enough to gain the support of key BBC tastemakers Guy Garvey and Mark Radcliffe. One track was even used by footballer Cristiano Ronaldo on his ‘Best Bits of 2013’ video.PRimage

‘The Shaman’s Call’ marks further progression for Sandy Kilpatrick as an artist, guided out of the gate by new single ‘Your Love Is a Weapon’, a song which focuses on the intimacy and solitude of the writer at work: https://soundcloud.com/sandykilpatrick/your-love-is-a-weapon

Like this track, the album as a whole is designed to feel raw, and not hidden behind the smoke and mirrors of big production. The lyrics are intimate and thoughtful, hitting many highs, lows and moments of heartfelt poignancy – many of which listeners will immediately relate to.

Daughter of award winning Bollywood vocalist finds her ideal sound with new single, out March 30th

Youth sensation Shannon K returns with best single yet –  ‘Just Another Boy’

IMG_9874

 With a string of singles already under her belt, Shannon K is becoming something of a prolific artist when it comes to new releases. With three songs already unleashed in the past year, her fourth demonstrates a young pop artist who has really started to find her style.

Her best song yet, ‘Just Another Boy’ is a straight-forward, immediately accessible pop hit in the contemporary ‘girl power’ mould of Taylor Swift. Boasting genuine pop impact in the distorted vocals and the stilted but relentless rhythms, the track truly comes alive on the speedily delivered chorus.

But, just when you think you’ve got the track figured out, it takes a left turn in the shape of an airy, languid middle eight, which kicks back in once more with that superb chorus. The gradual build from there to the multi-layered ending is brilliantly produced and it’s a track to be proud of with its honest, confident and powerful lyrics:

Following on from anti-drugs single ‘Just Say No’ and festive track ‘Christmas Song’, this track marks a watershed move from Shannon K, moving on from the themed ideals of the previous releases and into serious pop territory.

No doubt it makes her father, Kumar Sanu, very proud – and he knows what it takes to make it in the music industry. A glittering career as a vocalist in Bollywood has seen him win a total of 69 awards including 64 in his native India (from Filmfare, Zee Cine, Kishore Kumarand more) plus 5 internationally (from Sunrise Radio-London, West Indian Academy, Grammy-West Indies, Bollywood Music-U.S.A. and Radio Lotus-South Africa).
