Matt Stillert - King Of The World     Blues/Roots, Folk, Experimental 06/12/2018
Experimental, left of field, Matt Stilllert, returning from a two year hiatus where he lost his mind, more than once, now with a mixbag of new sounds that defy classification.
"King Of The World", is an old number Stillert wrote many years ago for a friend going through some tough times, it evokes a longing and sentiment that pours fourth through scattered guitars and Stillert's many voices. This is just a taste of things to come from the mad hatter with his many new sounds.

Caroline Taylor-Knight - Dance For You     Blues/Roots 05/12/2018
Caroline Taylor-Knight is a captivating and passionate singer/songwriter delighting audiences with her heartfelt honesty, writing and performing - from stunning ballads through to pop, rock, country and everything in between.
"Dance For You" is a playful, fun track Caroline wrote because when she first met her now husband/producer Duncan Wood, he sang "You Can Leave Your Hat On" to her. This obviously scared Caroline and she questioned his intentions. But they've now been married sometime and have two beautiful girls, so on her last album Caroline wrote this in response.
