Having a love for music from a very young age, songwriter Tom Abbott has been playing guitar for over 8 years. Having experience performing in bands as a guitarist, he’s had a love for playing live but knew he wanted to focus on songwriting that was all his own. For the past 4 years, Abbott has been recording and performing as a solo artist along with taking gigs as a hired guitarist here and there. Putting together a group of his best songs, he decided to lay everything down to create a release. After months of hard work and dedication, the “Well Done” album was finally born. The record is a testament to where he is at with his sound right now.

“My sound has evolved a lot since my first release. The new album has twice as many songs, a lot more instrumentation, and a lot better songwriting in general. I feel like the album has a lot of variety. “Felicity” shows off the more Pop side of things, but it has the acoustic guitar and harmonies that are pretty much constant throughout the rest of the album. If this one is not your type, I’m sure there is at least one on the album you can enjoy,” says Abbott of his record and songwriting approach.

“Well Done” is now available for streaming and downloads on most major digital outlets and the songwriter is always working on new material for upcoming releases.

Jessica’s Theme Band’s

first album is a solid, clean and true album, created with love and passion. It includes a few hard rock tracks (Hard To Be A Hero, Matter Of Time), and other more southern rock tracks such as Black Cat, It Happened Again, Big Story, Hold On Tight. It’s a mixture of all the genres of rock the band loves – from country to blues, and from rock to hard rock. It’s an album that became real as a result of the strong tie between the band members and the producer. They all created a particular sound to each of the album songs, forming the band’s unique musical identity.

Jessica’s Theme Band was formed in Athens, Greece, in 1989, by John Goudoulas, Jim Karahontzitis and Nick Agathos. They wanted to present a different view to covers such as Tush, I know A Little, Feel Like Making Love, Don’t Believe A Word etc as well as their own, original, material. Following numerous live gigs, collaborations with local acknowledged musicians, and even after receiving the first prize as band of the year in 1991 on a Greek TV show, the band was disbanded in 1994. After each member’s musical journey, they decided to re-unite with two significant additions: Tony Linaris on drums and Denis Kaskouras (a later member of the original band) on bass. With a complete line up, the band started working on its first album, in 2013, inspired by bands from the early seventies (Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allman Bros, Molly Hatchet, Eagles), by various British bands like Bad Company, UFO etc and by Irish bands like Thin Lizzy, Rory Gallagher etc.

Asked what inspired her to write songs, she commented, “I thrive on creating music and lyrics,
ultimately to enhance storytelling. Preschoolers have such vivid imaginations, and to be able to tap into that
space brings me much happiness. If I can engage and develop their musicality, even briefly, I feel I’ve
succeeded in my quest.”

Kitt Chapman, now retired and focusing on songwriting, was an Early Childhood Educator.

She has always loved music. At the age of six, she began her classical training on piano at the Royal Conservatory of Music. At summer camp, she taught herself the guitar around the campfire. She sang in the church choir, played the cello and violin in high school, and dibbled and dabbled in miscellaneous other instruments, including the flute and teh harp.

After raising her three wonderful children, she had time to pursue songwriting.

The Finnish melodic death/doom metal band Fractured Spine releases “The Price of Retribution” EP, shortly followed by three more upcoming EPs “Failed Pieces”, “Stolen Pieces” and “Remains”.

Celebrating 10 years since the first demo, “Anniversary Editions” of the first two studio albums “Songs of Slumber” and “Memoirs of a Shattered Mind” are also out this August, followed by a compilation album in 2018.

Composing, recording and working on the releases took more than 3 years. Mixing and mastering was done by Jeffro Lackscheide (US). The EP is published by Inverse Records.

Experimental, atmospheric, melodic. Although many death/doom metal elements are present in most songs, it would be difficult to categorize Fractured Spine strictly in that genre.

Starting out as a one man instrumental project, few songs were released to the public until 2012, with one notable exception being the very limited edition demo “Frost” in 2008. The band still draws its main influences from outside the metal genre.

The line-up consists of two core members Antti (instruments, vocals) and Timo (vocals), with occasional visits from session musicians and guest vocalists.

Hawk and the Wild is a singer/songwriter who’s real name is Jimmy Wiltfalk. As soon as he picked up an instrument the interest for writing music emerged but the indie-folk has only been in focus for the last couple of years. The debut album Extrication Songs was released 2016 with a release tour in Sweden. Jimmy wrote all music and lyrics while also recording most of it in his own home studio. He also plays most live gigs alone as a one man band but he is sometimes accompanied by fellow musicians.

While not playing music or scribbling on a new song he is riding some kind of board or speaking for human rights. A commitment he drew attention too with the antiracist social media charity project and single “The dream is still alive” that was released as musicvideo on youtube and also for streaming on spotify/itunes. The song have been in first place on the Swedish independent chart and the musicvideo have had great success in Germany, France and England.

Now other musicians and producers have taken interest in his music resulting in new fresh remixes. First the EDM mixing skills from ELOW, an 18 year old wizkid from South-Africa. Then also the country remix of the song Colour by swedish drummer and producer Marko Vaunuveräjä.

Paper Doll Scissor Fight

is a tightrope act. High above the crowd and sweating under the heat of the spotlights. On one end of the balancing pole is the sweet and the sultry. Pretty melodies that lull the spectators to a sense of calm. They smile down below and sway gently in rhythm with the tight rope as it dances under light steps. The other end is dark and harsh. It dips heavy with the ever-present threat of a misstep that would result in the crowd screaming as a blur streaks towards the hard ground. The debut EP represents this balance perfectly.
