Real Life - The Deep Hollow

LCM Song Of The Day: ‘Real Life’ - The Deep Hollow

Described as ‘stripped down harmony-laden classic Folk and Americana’ our next LCM featured artists are the great Illinois based acoustic trio of Micah Walk, Elizabeth Eckert and Dave Littrell better known collectively as The Deep Hollow. ‘Real Life’ is new single taken from their recently released album ‘Weary Traveler’.

Beginning with a win in the American Songwriter magazine songwriting contest in 2014 to a well-produced Kickstarter-launched album in 2015 that reached number three on the Folk DJ charts in early 2016, the terrific threesome continues to move forward. September saw the release of their second album ‘Weary Traveler’.

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.

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.

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.
