Release: Troy Redfern - The Wings of Salvation

Troy Redfern announces "The Wings of Salvation" album and "Come On" single and music video

Troy Redfern’s new single “Come On” and forthcoming studio album “The Wings of Salvation” (released by RED7 Records on September 23rd).  The single is out today, as is the accompanying music video.

Troy’s blues-rock slide guitar playing on “Come On” is riveting. The sing-along chorus is infectious. There’s a definite T. Rex guitar boogie vibe here. The Sweet must have rubbed off on Troy when he toured with them last year.

The single is released today and is accompanied with a fantastic hi-octane blues-rock slide guitar music video which you can share on your website.  Health Warning! The new album is released on yellow and red splatter vinyl.

EP: Mega - Colour Your World

Rising contemporary soul singer Mega releases her new EP Colour Your World on July 1 via Nettwerk/V2 Records.

Taking sonic inferences from her Ugandan heritage, "All Day Long" is a joyous track that celebrates the happiness of meaningful connections. About the track, Mega says, "'All Day Long' is about having that person in your life whom you can be your complete self with, and your relationship with them makes you feel safe and secure, whether that be a partner, friend or anyone. Having them in your life makes life so much more enjoyable and meaningful. When you are together, nothing else matters."

Deze plaat wordt opgevolgd door Someone To Watch Over Me in 2011. Standing Ovation – The Greatest Songs From The Stage is de titel van de plaat die Susan Boyle in 2012 uitbrengt. Home For Christmas verschijnt in 2013. Die krijgt in 2014 een vervolg in het album Hope. Susan Boyle neemt in 2015 een jaartje vrij. In 2016 verschijnt A Wonderful World, een plaat die zij omschrijft als muziek voor de hele familie het hele jaar door.
