Collide - Tom Speight

LCM #SongOfTheDay; Collide - Tom Speight

Our featured artist today is the fast rising London based indie singer-songwriter Tom Speight. We love his new single ‘Collide’ which was released today. The song also features the wonderful vocals of Lydia Mary Clowes. Tom is currently on a UK tour, with dates in Manchester tonight, Birmingham tomorrow and a London date at Thousand Islands on the 11th October. The song was written in Belfast in January and epitomises a very personal and difficult journey for Tom due to his bad health. The song pictures falling for someone and knowing it could be like this forever.

It’s very appropriate that we are featuring Tom’s music today on the eve of the Music Maker’s Festival, as that is where we first met Tom and his band last year. Tom’s back catalogue is excellent and worth checking out if you haven’t discover his music before.

Big Blue Sky - Holly Redford Jones

LCM #SongOfTheDay: ‘Big Blue Sky’ - Holly Redford Jones

Originally from Chesterfield, Holly Redford Jones is an indie folk artist possessed of a dry wit and deep, soulful voice. She released her debut single, ‘Big Blue Sky’ on the 24th of August, a track recorded in Nashville, Tennessee. We like this song a lot here at LCM HQ. The track is also getting a lot of support from BBC Introducing. Let us know what you think?

Wonderfully Made - Besides Daniel

LCM #SongOfTheDay - ‘Wonderfully Made’ - Besides Daniel

We take a trip to Atlanta, Georgia to meet our today’s featured artist Danny Brewer and his band collectively known as Besides Daniel. Danny has just released his latest EP ‘Teeming’ in late August and one of our favourite tracks is the reflective ‘Wonderfully Made’.

Besides Daniel is an independent eclectic folk band based around its front man and creative force Danny Brewer. Every great artistic talent stems from a great love, is cultivated by the intrigue of influence, and thrives on passion for human experience. Besides Daniel front man Danny Brewer’s immense talent is no exception. His poetic lyricism, natural-sounding acoustic riffs, and evocative voice combine to produce truly masterful melodies. Not only are his songs beautifully composed, but they also possess a deep emotion that is rarely seen with such clear precision from a musical artist. In other words, he has the ability to create music straight from the soul, with naked honesty.

Firesong - Carousel

LCM #SongOfTheDay: Firesong - Carousel

Our featured track today is the latest single from one of the finest young indie Americana Rock bands in UK. Based in Southend in Essex Carousel produce spellbinding live performances full of high quality songwriting, musicianship and super tight harmonies. Comparisons are now being made to another excellent fast rising group The Wandering Hearts. We love this latest classy and reflective track, which we think has the feel of Glen Hansard’s ‘Falling Slowly’.

It’s a very special day for the band as tonight it is the homecoming gig of their headline UK tour at Chinnery’s. Special guests include the LCM favourite the wonderful Lisa Wright. Don’t miss it :)
