Sam Tinnesz and UNSECRET had worked on dozens of songs together, but collaborating remotely during a global pandemic offered a unique challenge.
Using Zoom had become part of “the new normal” for most businesses, and the music community was no different. Sam and UNSECRET were hesitant at first–could they achieve the same level of creativity in a virtual writing session?
They decided to give it a shot. Sam and UNSECRET are known for dark and hard-hitting music, but the quarantine and isolation offered a new muse: togetherness.
The verses of the song could still reflect the difficultly of the times, but they wanted a chorus charged with positivity. After a few hours wrestling with ideas over Zoom, they finally found something special. But now they were faced with an even more demanding task: recording the song. Sam had never recorded his own vocals, but the circumstances provided an opportunity for him to test his technical skills.
He sent the results to UNSECRET for editing, then they planned their next steps. They wanted a live band to perform the song, but how would they accomplish that when no one could be in the same room? They started with the guitars.
Todd Lombardo – a highly-accomplished Nashville session player – was their first choice, and fortunately the quarantine had freed up his schedule. He recorded acoustic guitar, electric guitar, and even some banjo, which added together to become the foundation of the musical track.
Next came drums with Miles McPherson, then bass with Tony Lucido, two other phenoms who were able to record their parts from the comfort of their homes. But it still wasn’t enough. The last chorus needed something big, so they turned to two friends who could nail the vibe: Ruby Amanfu and Sam Ashworth, most recently known for their work with the artist H.E.R. Ruby and Sam were able to add –remotely, of course–layers of vocals that provided a “virtual choir”, once it was combined with everything else by another friend, seasoned alt-rock mixer Chad Howat.
In some ways, it was the most difficult song Sam and UNSECRET had ever worked on. But in other ways, by relying on a network of musical friends they’d built over theyears, the song came together more quickly than anything they’d ever done.
The best part was that the song showcased what being “Better Together” is all about: finding meaningful ways to connect during quarantine while longing for real connection in the future.

‘A Ghost’ – First Single & Stunning Animated Video Created By Fran
‘A Ghost’ received its first play today from Ken Bruce on Radio 2, and arrives with a stunning animated video directed and drawn by Fran, with his son Clay leading the beautiful cinematography work – all done whilst in isolation. Watch here & listen here.
Frontman Fran Healy says; "The video started out as a mocked up picture of me and three ghosts playing the last chorus of the song in a deserted alleyway. Just when everything was ready to shoot, the world went into lockdown, so we had this great song with no way to make a video, so I decided to draw it. It worked out that it would take around 30 days, with 2,500 drawings. Most of the animation is rotoscoped, and one day I was watching a sequence back and when it got to the end, it flashed and went into live action. This was the moment I realised I could shoot the mock up picture of me playing with my band of ghosts in the alleyway. It was clear that filming the last 47 seconds would save me 10 days of drawing, I could recruit my 14 year old son Clay as the cameraman as he has a drone, and most importantly, we could film it socially distant. It was the most bizarre video shoot I have ever worked on, but it turned out great."
Co-produced by both Fran and Robin Baynton (Coldplay, Florence & The Machine), and recorded at RAK Studios as 2019 turned into 2020, ’10 Songs’ is an album about the way life comes at love and what love does to weather those challenges. It’s grown-up. There’s sizzling synergy in abundance, and many of its songs benefit from the almost psychic sense of mutual attunement that comes from being in a band whose line-up hasn’t changed in its entire collective lifetime.
There’s also inspired cameos to be found, including synth work from Grandaddy’s Jason Lytle, lap steel from Greg Leisz (Beck, Emmylou Harris, Bruce Springsteen) and vocals from Susanna Hoffs of The Bangles that came about from a chance exchange on Twitter.
It’s been twenty-five years since the four members of Travis first set foot in a Glaswegian rehearsal room. At various points along the trajectory between then and now, the band have sold millions of albums, they’ve been the subject of the award-winning feature length documentary ‘Almost Fashionable’ and Fran has elicited acclaim from Paul McCartney, Elton John and Graham Nash – all songwriters whose ability to divine a timeless melody out of thin air has sustained them through the decades.
And today marks another new chapter in the band’s extraordinarily prolific and unflappable career. ‘10 Songs’ is yet another body of work that showcases Travis as one of the UK’s finest songwriting exports.
To sum it up, Fran says beautifully; “There’s a song on the record called ‘Butterflies’. And that’s really how I think about songwriting. These things are floating around. And you have to be very quiet, and be very quick, and be very respectful. You catch them, you look at them for a little while, and then you set them free again. And that’s the whole point of songs. That’s the point of songwriting.”
‘10 Songs’ – Track Listing
‘10 Songs’ comes available as Standard CD, Heavyweight vinyl plus Deluxe 2CD and Deluxe 2LP (red and blue vinyl) including 10 Demos. The band’s official store features exclusive merch bundles, Cassette and highly limited edition signed TPs. Pre-Order 10 Songs HERE.

Boy Pablo is ready to reintroduce himself. While his career took off in 2017 with the viral, outsider-pop anthem "Everytime," Boy Pablo's Nicolas Muñoz has since found himself more connected to his art than ever. While Boy Pablo initially started out as a project just for fun, Muñoz, now 21, has since honed a cohesive, creative vision, becoming a fully-fledged force to be reckoned with in the indie-pop space.
With Boy Pablo’s debut album, Wachito Rico, due Oct. 23, Muñoz crafts a hybrid conceptual and autobiographical record. “Wachito Rico,” a Chilean expression that means “handsome boy” and the idea of being fond of someone, is the overarching theme and a character Muñoz centered the album on. Throughout the LP, Muñoz will take listeners through the highs and lows of his alter-ego’s love story, which will be mirrored in an elevated caliber of music videos that go beyond the calling-card shore visual of “Everytime.”
Introducing Wachito Rico is lead single “Hey Girl,” an entrypoint into the love life of the album’s titular character and a return to the familiar warmth of Muñoz’s vocals. As Wachito Rico, Muñoz narrates the challenges of winning over a girl, keeping her and navigating the problems that come along the way. Roadblocks aside, a throughline of the album is Wachito Rico’s happy-go-lucky attitude that keeps him grounded even when times are tough. But despite Wachito Rico’s presence as a character, the album comes from a personal place for Muñoz, as the songs are derived from the joy and pain he’s experienced throughout his young life. But even the heavier moments―like contemplating a breakup―are overshadowed by a lighter, spontaneous tone.
While Muñoz has largely been writing and producing solo since Boy Pablo’s inception in 2015, Wachito Rico sees him collaborating more than ever. In writing and recording sessions done throughout 2019, he worked with his older brother, Esteban Muñoz, and brother-in-law, Erik Thorsheim, to broaden his perspective and expand his vision. Both visually and sonically Wachito Rico creates an atmosphere that merges Muñoz’s Latin-American and Norwegian backgrounds and remains deeply rooted in love.
Born in Norway to Chilean parents, Muñoz grew up immersed in a family of musicians at heart. At six, Muñoz learned how to play the drums, and by 10, he had mastered the guitar. Growing up, Muñoz was influenced by everything from Blink-182 and Green Day to Latin music and The Beatles. The latter is what he envisioned himself sounding like as he went through a period of musical exploration. During his senior year at the music-focused high school he attended, Muñoz gathered some friends for a gig at his school, presented his sound and suddenly Boy Pablo was born. Now, that same close-knit circle, Gabriel Muñoz, Eric Tryland, Henrik Åmdal and Sigmund Vestrheim remain Boy Pablo’s live band.
Wachito Rico serves as a more mature follow-up to Boy Pablo’s 2018 breakout EP Soy Pablo, a collection of raw songwriting and dazzling, nostalgic anthems. Through his seven bedroom pop tracks, Muñoz fused a retro sound with California sun-kissed melodies, creating a perfect segue between “Everytime” and his debut album.
With Wachito Rico, Boy Pablo shows he’s not only grown up and into his sound, but that he’s more than just an internet phenomenon

SINGER LISA MILLS SALUTES CLASSIC SOUL/BLUES SONGS ON NEW CD, THE TRIANGLE, RECORDED AT ICONIC STUDIOS IN MUSCLE SHOALS, MEMPHIS AND JACKSON
Lisa Mills’ new album, The Triangle on Melody Place Music, is a tribute to the sound and feel of the great southern soul music of the ‘60s and ‘70s. Mississippi-born-and-raised Mills, recorded many of the album’s tracks with the original musicians in the same studios where they were first recorded at Sun and Royal Studios in Memphis, Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals and Malaco Studios in Jackson, Mississippi.
The Triangle is full of mesmerizing music from the geographic triumvirate of Memphis, Muscle Shoals and Jackson. As Mills traveled on her musical journey, she recorded songs that were originally recorded in each city she visited and became one with the music along the way, bringing her own unique interpretation to these timeless songs.
The album features legendary musicians backing Lisa on the 14 songs. Many of the tracks feature players who performed on the historic original recordings. In each southern place, they paid homage to the seminal music that truly changed the world, and most of the vocals were literally live off the floor as they tracked the music. Through the incredible travels, outstanding food, and the best musicians in the blues and R&B field, The Triangle was born.
“Lisa Mills has the soul of Amy Winehouse, the grit of Janis Joplin, and the passion of Beth Hart all rolled into one excitingly talented performer.
JD Nash (American Blues Scene)
Mills takes these old soul songs and, with her capable and emotional vocals, burnishes these classics to a new brightness that should be passed on to succeeding generations.
Pete Sardon (Blues Music Magazine)
“Across the globe, many people believe in reincarnation. My question is: Can a soul reincarnate in more than one body at the same time? Witness Mississippi native Lisa Mills, a dead ringer for Etta James if there ever was one.
Rainey Wetnight (Blues Blast Magazine)

City Punk Cowgirl Emily Duff Delivers Country Soul LP
True Americana Produced by Eric “Roscoe” Ambel
"Emily reminds me of some of the great earthy, big-voiced roots singers I loved in the 1970’s— She borrows from that blues and roots tradition but makes it her very own with her sensitive and personal lyrics.”– Rosanne Cash
“Emily Duff is a performer whose time is surely now.” -Country Music Magazine UK
"New York City’s Emily Duff is a melting pot of musical styles, just like the streets she’s called home from the day she was born. She’s absorbed the unique flavors of country, roots, soul, R&B and rock music and served it up as a full course meal on her newest release Born On The Ground” – American Songwriter
“‘'Born On The Ground’ was, in the main, recorded live in NYC and one wonders, if all country music came out of that melting pot, whether the genre may have headed in a more interesting and nuanced direction. Whatever, Emily Duff is evidence that the genre still has plenty to offer when entrusted to the right artist.” – Americana UK
"Emily blends styles effectively, Reba McIntyre’s vitality with a little Lucinda Williams grit produces quite a unique pedigree of cosmopolitan country.” – Americana Highways
"Emily Duff knows a thing or two about rock & roll and she’s at her best when she’s in take-no-shit, tough as nails mode. And there’s plenty of that on her new collection called Born On The Ground.” – Americana Music Show
NYC based songwriter, Emily Duff is at it again. Almost exactly one year after the release of her Muscle Shoals FAME gang gospel album, Hallelujah Hello, Emily returns with Born on the Ground, Nine “love” songs that capture nine different relationship break-ups from her past. Produced by Eric “Roscoe” Ambel (Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Bottle Rockets, Steve Earle, Jimbo Mathis) at Cowboy Technical Services Rig in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and mastered by Richard Dodd (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers,) Born on the Ground is a luxurious 20/20 hindsight look-back, without anger, for 2020.
About the record, Emily states, “I wanted to examine emotional wounds through the mature lens of time with the self-confidence, faith and the wisdom of motherhood and marriage. On my own from a very young age, I grew up rudderless, without positive role models for relationships and grew from tragedy, loss and trial and error to understand where true love & happiness lives for me today. Self-worth is something like planting a garden and understanding that what is born in and on the ground will someday, with work and a little bit of luck, be able to nourish and feed others well. Break-ups are not always with lovers. You can break-up with family members, careers, friends, political parties and bad habits as well. Yes, breaking up can be hard to do, but sometimes it’s how you save your own life."
Born on the Ground was recorded live in Brooklyn with the Emily Duff Band: Scott Aldrich, Skip Ward, Charlie Giordano and Kenny Soule with guest appearances by Eric Ambel on guitars and vocals & Syd Straw, Mary Lee Kortes & Tricia Scotti on background vocals.
Emily Duff’s small batch brand of "sweet & sour rock and roll with a great big hit of country soul," digs deep, weaving a patchwork of sin, tragedy, romance and regret that lies at your feet begging to be mended. A dark optimist, Emily Duff is a unique voice for women at a crucial time. A happily married wife, content with a sweet & simple life. A devoted mother who never really had one. A dedicated and reliable observer whose 30 years of sobriety allows her to be, for better or worse, fully “woke,” Emily is not afraid to show up to sing some Truth.
Duff has been compared to Lucinda Williams, Loretta Lynn, Nick Cave, Marcia Ball, Tony Joe White, The Carter Family, Tracey Nelson & Steve Earle. Rolling Stone Magazine wrote that Emily Duff is, “One part Patti Smith, one part Muscle Shoals.” Songwriter Wille Nile claims Emily to be “The real thing and a great artist.” And Henry Yates at Country Music UK Magazine states, “Emily Duff is a performer whose time is surely now.”
A prolific songwriter and humble servant of song, Emily was born in Flushing Queens, NY and raised by a pack of cigarettes. Her Mama taught her 4 perfect chords and then split, leaving Emily to figure the rest out on her own. With a deep love for vintage guitars, muscle cars & old man bars, Emily carved a path straight to CBGBs and never looked back.
She replaced Jeff Buckley as lead singer for Gary Lucas’ Gods & Monsters and had the honor of opening for Bob Dylan & Paul Simon at Jones Beach Amphitheater with her band, Eudora. After a hiatus to get straight, get happy and raise some pretty cute kids, Emily released her debut solo record, Go Tell Your Friends in 2015. Emily followed that up with 2017's Maybe in the Morning recorded at FAME in Muscle Shoals, AL and produced by Craig Bishop, receiving 5 stars in Country Music UK Magazine. Shifting her gears to a “Higher Power,” Emily wrote & released, Hallelujah Hello in 2019, also recorded at FAME and produced by FAME’s own, John Gifford III and featuring an All-Star Band of Muscle Shoals vets, including members of the original "Fame Gang."
Emily’s version of Willie Nile’s “Hell Yeah” will appear on the Paradiddle Records Tribute to Willie Nile in August 2020. Emily has written and performed on numerous TV and radio commercials as well as Independent films. Emily is currently writing songs with Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Ricky Byrd (Joan Jett & the Blackhearts) for his Clean Getaway Project. Emily Duff lives in Manhattan’s West Village with her husband Skip, their two children and hound dog, Banjo.
