Artist of the Month for May 2015 is Tom Auton
Our Artist of the Month for May – has to be the young and very talented Tom Auton. He came onto my radar in Dec 2013 and we gave him his first real ‘Live’ gig at Nosda. Check out his first ever gig right here –
We asked him to come back and show us his progress last month and boy has he come a long way. Winning many a competition and garnering a healthy following of young female fans, this young man is on a path to great things. Great lyrics and a wise head for such a young talent. Cheeky charm and gentle melodies make him stand out and looks that compliment the whole package. I am sure Agents will be knocking his door as soon as he reaches 18! All that is left to say is ‘Lock up your daughters’ if he is in town! Here is what you missed last Month and be sure to check him out on the social media links below 🙂
Many thanks to Gemma Collard for arranging this interview with Katie Eason from Made In Cardiff TV, to help highlight the cause to keep the Brewhouse ‘Original’ nights going for the Unsigned artists from Wales and beyond. After nearly 2 years the nights are under threat due to a lack of footfall to the venue on a Monday night. To read the full story click here.
#sharethelovefortheunsigned wherever you are in the world 🙂
After years of doing what I can with one pair of hands for the Unsigned out there, I have until 4th May 2015 to increase foot-fall to the Brewhouse ‘Originals’ on a Monday night or risk losing a great venue to showcase the wonderful ‘Original’ music I showcase on a weekly basis. If figures are still low on 4th May it will be an end to a great chapter in my life! Over the last 2 years I have worked tirelessly to showcase and archive just under 300 acts from the Brewhouse alone! From the brand new to the more seasoned I give them all a chance. I am a stickler for them to perform their ‘Original’ songs, which they seem to relish! Each night I broadcast, film and promote endlessly to help gain valuable exposure for the artists beyond Cardiff.
I am fully booked for local and International acts to play in May, June and throughout the rest of the year, which I may have to cancel. I have invaluable support from Cardiff AfterDark, who create a blog every week of our broadcasts, which they then share to seven cities around the UK. Roundhead Productions & Pi & Hash and good friends also champion what I do to their networks. Unfortunately that is not enough!
So in a nutshell…
I am asking you to all help me share the love for the Unsigned out there and attend at least one/all of the next 4 broadcasts and share the upcoming events to as many people/networks as possible. Be it a random tweet/post every now and then, to a more aggressive approach I will be eternally grateful. All links for the next broadcasts are right here –
If after this collective push we still lose this venue I will be actively looking for another venue to continue the journey, so please contact me to make any suggestions of venues that you think may be interested.
Many thanks for those of you who have supported me thus far and taking the time to read this post. I hope to see you at one of the Brewhouse ‘Original’s’ nights very soon 🙂 x
Artist of the Month for April 2015 are Cousin Avi
Our Artist of the Month for April – The unmistakable sound of Cousin Avi brought to you by five talented musicians, all sharing the same infectious and unrelenting passion to produce unique and exciting music. They will be appearing at the Brewhouse on Monday 13th April. You can find more details here
This Anglo-Argentine outfit are intent on causing a musical invasion. Having played in various countries, both in Europe and South America, alongside the likes of Katy B, Amy Winehouse, and Basement Jaxx, Avi bring an electrifying live show. They were finalists in the Global Battle of The Bands Competition, and have also played the BBC Introducing Weekender, Brownstock Festival with Example and Miss Dynamite, and numerous other festivals across Europe, as well as enjoying plenty of BBC Introducing radio play.
Brought together by its five members (Francisco, Stuart, Ross, Duncan and Jacob), if you want conformity this isn’t the line you need! With a bit o’ funk, reggae, rock, soul, blues and anything or everything else in between, we call on you not to jump aboard, but to leap aboard. Onto what is a never-ending freight, hell bent on a musical revolution!
Our Artist of the Month for March is Wales’s very own Tibet. A fun-filled young band who have been entertaining Cardiff for the last few years. – I had the pleasure of being the first guy to play their demo a few years back on radio, and offered them their first real gig. From when they were rough and ready as ‘The Knox’ to a more polished lineup as ‘Brothers’ they had a vibe that was needed in the capital. Joel Hurst has developed into a great showman and Ethan Hurst (his Brother) is the real ‘Animal’ on the drums. Their latest evolution as Tibet has put them on the world map and they’ve just signed a deal with Lateral in London. 2015 has started well for Tibet. It will be interesting to see how they mature and take on the International scene! I have no doubt they will be in the industry for a long time and look forward to their next installment of music genius. Check out there new material and be sure to follow the guys 🙂 Twitter – Soundcloud
The New Year is well under way and Unsigned artists are moving at a cyber-speed pace these days. Our Artist of The Month for February is The Bleedin’ Noses who are causing quite a stir! All hailing from Blackwood these guys kick up a rumpus like I have not heard in a long darn while! Dirty folk, is how they are described and boy that only touches the surface of what these guys create for your audio pleasures!! They graced our stage once last year and hope to welcome them back sometime in 2015 when their busy schedule allows it! Be sure to follow these guys and like/follow/share the love using the links below 🙂
