INTERVIEW: Like Pacific (11/03/2018)

Like Pacific are one of the many great bands coming out of Canada lately.

There are a lot of promising up-and-coming bands that are coming out of Scotland right now, and alternative rock five-piece Divide are certainly one of them.

INTERVIEW: Jamie Lenman (03/02/2018)

Though not short of his established talent and gusto, with his previous and debut solo album ‘Muscle Memory’ back in 2013, British singer/songwriter and former Reuben frontman Jamie Lenman seemed to be somewhat testing the waters no only of his capabilities, but also in finding out how much of and how passionate of a fanbase for his musical output still remained after sitting it out for just over half a decade.
