King of Vintage, Si Cranstoun gets playlisted on BBC Radio 2 and Magic...What's next for the Rock n Roll Star?

 

After twenty years of busking on the pavements of the UK and making a name for himself on the ‘Vintage’ scene with his Jackie Wilson-esque original song writing style, Si Cranstoun is finally breaking into the wider public eye with new single ‘Caught In The Moonlight’.

He’s now delighted to see his efforts come to fruition having signed a deal with Warners and gained support from Radio 2 and in particular Terry Wogan.

Now on the playlist of the UK’s biggest radio station, Si Cranstoun is keener than ever to share his unique musical sensibility. His fresh take on old school soul has seen him compared not only with the aforementioned Jackie Wilson but also the excellent Imelda May. It’s a style that has grown from years of honing and busking and improving his sound, writing a back catalogue of top quality material that has stood the test of time, but also led to saw him meet his wife as she passed on the pavement!

Wonder Villains track Zola is available as a free download to mark the release of the album

Wonder Villains are brother and sister Kieran and Eimear Coyle, Cheylene Murphy and Ryan McGroarty.

From Derry, N.Ireland, they make blistering alternative-pop not entirely dissimilar in spirit from that legendary Derry band the Undertones. They smash through two minute pop songs while cranking the distortion on their keyboard sounds.

Their singles have received support nationally on BBC Radio 1, Radio 2, 6 Music, XFM, Absolute Radio and in Ireland on Cool FM, RTE 2fm and Today FM among others.

Radio support also came in the form of a Maida Vale Huw Stephens session and a BBC Radio 1 Introducing play list addition on the band's first single ‘Zola’ (which will be the lead track for week of album release). ’Blonde’ picked up a ‘Next Hype’ and ’Brand New Sound’ on Radio 1, while most recent single 'Marshall' picked up more radio play and saw the band featured on ITV's Saturday morning programme 'Scrambled'. Their track 'Ferrari' is the theme tune for CBBC's Dani's Castle

About the record, the band say - “Rocky is our 12 favourite songs written since we started the band in 2010. We grew up so much while writing this album. Some songs were recorded after school and at weekends, singing about TV characters and footballers. When we left school and moved into a big house together in Belfast called the ‘Wonder Villa' we wrote about new experiences like moving away from home and being hungover. Rocky captures a cool time in our lives and we can't wait for you to hear it! Yeoo”

The band have toured with They Might Be Giants, played SXSW & the Great Escape in 2014 and have more dates lined up to support their debut album release.

 

May 24-26 - Dot to Dot Festival, UK
June 17th - Huw Stephen’s Presents…Social, London

#BringBackOurGirls: Former X-Factor Star Annastasia Baker Releases 'Let Me Go' In Support

 

With an incredible voice that has seen her through to the X Factor judges’ houses on two previous series, vocalist Annastasia Baker is set to release a new single focused on raising awareness for the 200 schoolgirls recently kidnapped in Nigeria. The single, ‘Let Me Go’, sees Annastasia on powerful vocal form as she highlights an issue close to her heart.

A mother with a young daughter of her own, Annastasia cannot imagine what the families of the lost girls are going through. And without the financial means to directly impact the ongoing campaign to find them, she has turned to music as a tool to keep the situation in the public eye.

It’s not difficult to see from the track why Annastasia Baker’s voice has seen her so close to the X-Factor live finals on two occasions, and this isn’t the only time she has been successful on screen. Crowned winner of Gospel TV Show ‘Time2Shine’ last year, Annastasia is looking to build on that success and use it as a springboard for her own career, as well as continuing the fight to improve the situation in Nigeria.

‘Let Me Go’ is released June 16th – please use #BringBackOurGirls to support the campaign.
