Regime have been on our radar from the early day and their tune ‘Only Fools & Horses’ has kept many a listener happy and smiling since forever! The guys from Bristol know how to mesh real life issues to fun and inspirational rhythms. They entice the listener to think and reflect on what is going on around them. Their latest song and video ‘Great Britain’ should stir the masses, make the universe stand together and fight for your rights! Be sure to follow Regime and share the love to your musical world 🙂 —‘
The next Instalment from Ironheart CS showcasing the great music we experienced in Cardiff. Read below to find out more about Eve Rowlands, Michael Bush and Quincy, Tambo & Smalls, who filled the room with great vibes for a Monday night. Big thanks to Gemma Collard for photos and reviews 🙂
Eve May Rowlands’ summery folk songs build intrigue and drama. She starts tentatively and quietly, she then adds some punch, tempo and volume! Her songs are personal, written about memories and moments that obviously transport her back to happier moments. Her lyrics and command of her voice invite you to join her for the journey!
Find Eve here: http://evierowlands.co.uk/
Michael Bush’s songs are those you want to hear whilst you’ve got your head leant on someone’s shoulder. They move you. He sings with a controlled mastery, letting the guitar drive you through the song, with utter concentration and command. He played some new, upbeat songs today I hadn’t heard him play before. Good progress!

Quincy, Tambo & Smalls! What can I say? I’ve been waiting to see these guys grace our big Broadcast stage for ages! I just love these gritty solo vocals, then the harmonising kicks in, which takes it to another level! Foot-stomping rock and roll, these boys play from the heart! Some seriously dirty rocky blues. Close your eyes and you’re not in Cardiff anymore. Find them here: https://www.facebook.com/QuincyandThemDeadBeats?fref=ts
Last Monday we had the lovely Emi McDade, Sleepyhouse and MIXALYDIA perform live with Big Scott Radio. Gemma Collard did the Photography and reviews. This wonderful show-reel was produced and edited by IronHeart CS. Be sure to join us next week for a totally different line-up 🙂 x
Emi McDade has the most beautiful sunny persona. She’s gorgeous, her voice is gorgeous, her lyrics are gorgeous, her sound is gorgeous. She says she’s never played in a band but I’d be keen to see her front a band. She sings of sunny times and those life changing moments that creep up on us. One word: gorgeous! http://www.emimcdade.com/
Sleepyhouse have now played all three of our stages, they’ve made changes to their on stage presence and you can feel that improvement in their latest performance. They have a distinct sound, I love like their track ‘The River’, but really love their upbeat songs – more please! https://www.facebook.com/sleepyhouseofficial?fref=ts
Mixalydia have three vocals, electric acoustic and lead guitar and bass provided by the three J’s and a female drummer, Lydia. That electric lead is spine-tingling and provides the perfect complimentary rhythm throughout their songs. They’re a really nice bunch, too. Bluesy, rocky, country, folky – all ‘y’ words lead to Mixalydia. They could be the soundtrack to your summer road trips. http://mixalydiaband.com/
Yet another fantastic night of great unsigned music from The James Clode Band, Bryony Seir and James Davies. We always love to #sharethelovefortheunsigned and especially on my pre-birthday bash! The team were on the ball as usual. Here’s a snapshot of what you missed and what to expect each and every Monday, ‘Live’ from the Capital.
James Davies stepped up at last-minute to play last night. He has a powerful voice and sings with soul. His song Gauranga was one of the best opening songs we’ve heard, feel good music. He was joined by friend Sheralynn to perform one of his most treasured songs and despite her nerves, their voices blended beautifully. Look out for his EP, coming soon!

The James Clode Band – JCB – what can be said about these guys and gals? They have energy by the bucket loads, they’re a tight group of friends which comes across in confidence and pure enjoyment to play. They’re a real party band, quality tunes you can’t help but move along with. They have a brand new album launching this Friday, treat your ears… Find the JCB here – http://www.thejamesclodeband.co.uk

tonight’s ‘Live’ broadcasts from the Brewhouse was an all female affair! Beautiful melodies, soulful harmonies and fun were the order of the night.
Amo Rex has the most beautifully chilled, dreamy voice. She sings of stolen moments, distant memories and with raw emotion. She writes, plays and sings the kind of songs that make you want to lean your head on a special someone’s shoulder. You can place yourself in each of her songs. I particularly felt this during ‘Echo of the Rain’. Beautiful tones, keep watching this talent emerge.
Ambergris‘ singer has a powerfully captivating voice, she sings with real clarity and is supported by two stunningly melodic guitars. Their song ‘Gold’ particularly stands out and is live in Big Scott’s playlist on Inspired by Unsigned now. They grab the audience’s attention, humbling and melancholy.
The Floral Wham Trams – WOW! A young band, full of fun and summer funk. Their sound is filled with fiddle, banjo, bass, guitar, ukulele, tambourine, a strong drum line and three female vocals. They’re a band of best friends, you can see they’re having fun and it’s infectious. They make you tap your toes, shimmy down with a real festival feel. They create an atmosphere and are REALLY exciting to watch. Catch them soon!
Our Artist of The month for June has to be Bryony Sier. Hailing from Merthyr Tydfil in the Welsh Valleys, Bryony has a singing style that encapsulates the listener, with guitar that emphasizes the mood and atmosphere. Relatively new to the scene Bryony is on the start of what I think will be an awesome journey. She performed for us at the Brewhouse in May and we then had the pleasure of hearing her again at the New Crown Inn (Merthyr) at a Singer/Songwriter night. Every time she performs the audience are stunned into silence with her soulful Country, Folk & Blues rhythms. Her friendly and polite attitude will take her a long way. Labels will be knocking on her door soon. Say hello and follow her throughout 2015 – She will be performing in Cardiff on Monday 8th June as part of the Brewhouse ‘Live’ Broadcasts…
May’s Nosda ‘Live’ Broadcast saw the Sleepyhouse duo and Thousand Fingers Band make their debut in Cardiff.
Sleepyhouse are a guitar and vocal duo with a chilled out vibe mixed with funky guitar and emotive vocals. We’ve broadcast them twice now and each time they’ve evolved and grown in stage presence. The journey is just beginning but I’m excited to see where these two are going. On to the next big stage!
Thousand Fingers – They bring wall-to-wall sound, they clearly LOVE playing their music. A full set, packed with a heavy bass line, some serious stadium rock guitar riffs, brilliantly heavy drums and strengthening, passionate vocals, they are FUN and they make you want to move. Plus, they’re the nicest, most gracious lads in rock and roll!
Bank Holiday fun with Big Scott Radio broadcasting ‘Live’ from Brewhouse, Cardiff. Our big Brewhouse family brought VJ Lucifer to the venue for our end of month special, always a pleasure and the visuals backdrop get more mesmerizing. IronHeart CS filmed & Edited this film. Live shots and set reviews by Gemma Collard Photography.
Rhys Thomas John’s bluesy sound is full and fresh. He’s loaded with personality and plucky, rhythmic guitar. I looked around the room and everyone was rapping along. There were times he transported me to the Deep South in my head, I’m keen to hear this powerhouse voice with a full band. Fortunately, he’s part of Bigfeat so perhaps that could happen in the near future. www.facebook.com/RhysThomasJohn
Wayne Brennan Music – I can’t ever get enough of hearing and seeing the musicianship here. Wayne masters his guitar and makes the most dreamy instrumental sounds. His vocals are strong and he’s passionate about everything he sings. It helps that he is just one of the most friendly people in the business. You should check out his album…it’s stunning! https://twitter.com/waynebrennan
Kinky Boots Band – wow these are exciting to watch! From dreamy, soulful keyboard, thundering bass and fast, powerful drums, it’s a roller coaster ride from start to finish! I want to hear more!! Find Kinky Boots here: facebook.com/kinkybootsband
Jack Ellis Music are a four piece packed full of rock rhythms with an incredibly fast and funky bass line, demanding and powerful drums. They make a BIG sound with strongbow vocals and impressive tempo changes. They move with every beat, feel every word and chord and it’s infectious. They KNOW how to rock. www.twitter.com/jackellismusic
