LCM Song Of The Day: ‘Half Hearted’ - Post Monroe

Nashville based ‘Post Monroe’ are a country duo that blends two authentic female voices and personalities.

Our LCM featured track today is ‘Half Hearted’ taken from their 2016 self titled debut EP.

Post Monroe was named Rolling Stone Country’s “10 Artists You Need To Know” and made their Grand Ole Opry debut on June 18th. They are also part of CMT’s ‘Next Women of Country’ for 2017.

Post Monroe originally started as a trio but Shelby McLeod (seen above) left the band in October last year to pursue a solo career.

No Roots - Alice Merton

LCM #SongOfTheDay: ‘No Roots’ - Alice Merton

We have a very catchy song today to get your blood pumping and toes tapping. The very talented rising star and award winning singer-songwriter Alice Merton is very well traveled. She was born in Germany and raised in Canada and England. The very aptly named ‘No Roots’ is the title track of her debut EP released back in 2016. We dedicate it to all travelling globe-trotting musicians and anyone who ‘likes digging holes and burying things inside them’ #Blacklist

Growing up around the world Alice was as influenced by other cultures as much her own transience. Alice’s absorption of different styles helped create her distinctive sound. As a child, she learned classical piano and singing while in Canada. When Alice was a teenager, her family moved to Germany, where she would pick up the guitar and write her first song. While in Germany, she also studied at the Mannheim conservatory of music. Later, the family would relocate again, this time to England. Alice won the 2018 EBBA award.

Alice will be releasing her debut album ‘Mint’ on January 18th. You can pre-order directly from her website via the link below.

Nothing Comes Easy - Sons Of The East

LCM '#SongOfTheDay: ‘Nothing Comes Easy’ - Sons Of The East

Sons Of The East release their brand new single, ‘Nothing Comes Easy’ today. The single is another soulful and infectious anthem from a band who are winning the hearts of fans worldwide. It’s also the first single from the band’s upcoming third EP.

Sons Of The East are an indie-folk band from the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia. Band mates Dan Wallage, Nic Johnston and Jack Rollins have seen their popularity soar in 2018 with over 50 million streams, 14 million YouTube view and an ever growing international fan base.

The Australian trio have had a huge year, heading to the USA for the SXSW festival and an extensive promotional tour before returning home to sellout shows in Sydney and Melbourne. In August, the band embarked on a sold out UK & European Tour that spanned fourteen dates across seven countries including some of the biggest headline shows of their career. With two critically acclaimed EPs and a multitude of singles under their belt, the band’s motley acoustic- electric sound has developed into a unique and charismatic trademark, driven by soulful vocals and an infectious spirit that draws on everything from Neil Young and Johnny Cash to Fleetwood Mac and The Kinks.

In Common - Lucy Grubb

LCM #SongOfTheDay: ‘In Common’ - Lucy Grubb

The very impressive Lucy is a young Country singer-songwriter from Norwich, who will be launching her new EP ‘Dear Walter’ with a headline band show at The Norwich Art Centre on October 31st. We really like this live stripped version of ‘In Common’ filmed by James Hubbard which is taken from the new EP. The song is Lucy’s tribute to the great Johnny Cash.

With heartfelt lyrics and Country undertones, Lucy focuses on telling you the unadulterated truth about a girl who was born and raised in a town not built for Country music. Inspired by the likes of Johnny Cash, Lucy's understated guitar rhythms and trilled vocal melodies hark back to tried and tested traditional Country song writing, expressing grief, sorrow and heartbreak. Although lacking life experience, Lucy takes her own emotional turmoil and communicates it through gripping lyrical content and storytelling. "One cannot help but wonder where some of those lyrics are coming from, she's obviously another 'old soul' with a huge talent for expressive song writing."

After a great start to 2017 supporting her fellow peers Morganway & Sam Coe & The Long Shadows, Lucy went on to play a host of UK Festivals including Glastonbury, Red Rooster and Latitude. Accompanied by a sold out show in Norwich, Lucy released her debut EP '18 Miles' in November 2017, winning 'Best UK EP of the Year' and being named 'one to watch' by Belles and Gals. "Listening to Lucy, you really get the feeling that this is an artist who is doing it her way - its Country, with a touch of Folk, without ever feeling the need to conform 100% to either." (Nick Cantwell)

In April 2018 Lucy won 'The Bury Songwriter's Competition 2018' for her track '18 Miles' and released a Music Video. Lucy spent the summer playing shows across the UK, including performing at Countryfile Live for BBC Introducing, a stage line up curated by Bob Harris and featured headline British Country duo The Shires.
