Brittany Leo – Adore
Following on from her debut EP ‘Undefeated’ and single ‘Need It’ Brittany Leo returns with her new single ‘adore’
‘adore’ is a song that everyone has experienced at least once in their life; a twisted love story. It talks about the fascination and attraction you feel towards another, but you aren’t exactly sure what they are feeling towards you; they are giving you mixed signals. It can be a fun experience, but also a bit exhausting not knowing where you stand.
Focusing on being able to combine her love of singing and her passion for DJ’ing, Brittany says that she finds all the songs she releases now have a musical element that allows her to play the tracks in her DJ sets, whether it’s a upbeat track like ‘Need It’ or the vocal melody and bass of ‘adore’ they both seamlessly fit into her DJ gigs.
‘adore’ was written by Dylan Burrowes and Jeremy Drakeford (Spectrum Sound) and Brittany Leo
‘adore’ is available via all good digital retailers on 19th Oct 2018
Rose Carleo Band – Faded Tattoo

The latest single from Rose Carleo Band showcases the member’s true blues rock leanings. The tone, the groove and the emotion of ‘Faded Tattoo’ perfectly captures the essence and undying bond of mateship. The song carefully carries the underlying theme of the passing of a very dear friend while simultaneously balancing the melancholy with uplifting reminiscing of the glory days of the past. The 'Faded Tattoo' is the constant reminder of those times.
Award winning, ARIA charting singer Rose Carleo believes she has found the winning formula of songwriting, musicianship and performance., and the rise of heavy blues rock outfit ‘Rose Carleo Band’ has proved to be something quite exceptional.
The result of a chance meeting at the iconic Bridge Hotel in Sydney, this is a formidable band with an undeniable difference. With powerful, soulful vocals backed by gutsy guitars, driving bass and primal beats of four-on-the-floor grooves, the dynamism of this band is truly something to experience. Longtime fan and music historian Glenn A. Baker describes Rose as “a powerful, explosive and percussive performer” and lately stated “the power is almost terrifying” when reviewing the rhythm section at one of the band’s recent shows.
“Before our first rehearsal we knew we were on to something great” said Carleo of the band’s line-up, complete with the inclusion of Mick ‘Shady’ O’Shea (Dragon, Billy Thorpe, Rose Tattoo, Swanee, Richie Sambora & Orianthi) on drums and Steve ‘Kingy’ King (Rose Tattoo, Billy Thorpe, Pete Wells Band) on bass. Rose’s long-time songwriting partner and guitarist Mick Adkins stated ‘There’s an intensity that’s hard to describe. When you’re in the midst of belting out a tune that you co-wrote and seeing, hearing, feeling that everyone has taken ownership, it’s just brilliant. Knowing that Shady and Kingy were once the driving force of Rose Tattoo’s rhythm section and now we’re writing, recording and sharing the stage with these legendary guys is truly awesome”.

ROMII RETURNS WITH NEW PROJECT AND STELLAR NEW SINGLE, ‘CUPID LOVE’
Australian artist ROMII (fka ROMY) is back. After taking out the 2017 Queensland Music Award for best Urban Song for ‘Wild Heart’, she’s been over in the USA working with some of the very best the US pop machine has to offer, and now she’s making her awaited return. With a slight change in her name and a newly realised artistic direction, here's the first taste of what she’s been working on with her new single, ‘Cupid Love’.
“I met Bryant while he was on tour with Jennifer Lopez as her Musical Director. We were at this party held after the show and he asked me to get up and perform something for him. I was so taken aback but I’m always ready. He loved what I was doing and invited me back to LA to make a record,” said ROMII.
There is no rest for Brisbane/LA based rising pop superstar ROMII. From the moment her feet touched the ground in the United States, ROMII was put to work; first stepping in on a writing session for Kat Dhalia, writing a song that would later be sent to Rhianna. From writing songs for industry heavyweights to working alongside the likes of T-Pain, Bad Boy Records and Savage, ROMII has been busy carving a name out for herself as a dynamic artist both here and abroad.
"I thought about Cupid and how he'd shoot his arrow to make people fall in love, but what about him? It would be so lonely to create all that happiness, but not experience it for himself. Surely, Cupid wants some love too; so, he turns the arrow around to find love," said ROMII. "I didn't know it at the time, but that's actually the story of Cupid in Roman Mythology. He hits himself with his arrow to fall in love with the goddess Psyche."
After the vocals were recorded, Tim Stewart (Lady Gaga, Rihanna) and Monte Neuble (Eminem, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Dr Dre, Snoop) heard 'Cupid Love' and wanted to get onboard so they added production, as well as guitar and keys on the record.
Cupid Love is the first the world has heard from ROMII since her string of awards nominations including ‘Video Of The Year’ and wins, winning Urban Song of the Year at the 2017 Queensland Music Awards and an award at the 'Unsigned Only' competition in Nashville, Tennessee. Previously, ROMII’s self-directed music video for her first single ‘Wild Heart’ was nominated ‘Artist of The Month’ on ‘Channel V Disco[V]er’, in addition to being televised on ‘Channel V’ music channel and was a finalist in ‘Video of The Year’ and ‘People’s Choice Award’ at the Gold Coast Music Awards 2016. ROMII was also crowned ‘Faces of Music to Watch in 2016’ by news.com.au, published nationally in all major news print.
Training in all aspects of the entertainment industry (singing, dancing and acting) from a young age, ROMII wrote her first song at the age of seven, and attended the Griffith University Conservatorium of Music when she was just 11 years old. ”I’ve always tried to learn as much as I can about what it takes to be in the music industry. It’s a field that you have to continuously work at and keep pushing forward in, in order to create success,” she said.
Australian music blog 'PURPLE SNEAKERS' speak about 'Cupid Love' – "Infusing her RnB voice with a bouncing electro-pop beat, ROMII makes a powerful statement with her return. Her time overseas has obviously influenced her approach as she’s now risen with a global approach making her a serious force to be reckoned with. Her voice is impeccable above the arpeggiated synths and crisp drums as she flips the script on the traditional love song."

“Wonderful lyrics, amazing vocals, phenomenal musicianship; enough hallmarks to consider
"…Costelo offers a unique sound with soothing, soulful vocals." – Glide Magazine
Erin Costelo is a throwback, a songwriter that brings to mind the 'golden age' of music. Her fifth full-length album, Her fifth full-length album, SWEET MARIE, will be out on November 2 on Compass Records. . The10-song collection was recorded in 10 days in a timber-frame home on the ocean in Little Harbour, Nova Scotia. The album was brought to life in January amidst Canadian winter storms and pounding surf of the East Coast. Produced by Costelo, SWEET MARIE finds the native Nova Scotian looking at a world and an industry that pushed her to the edge of ending her musical career – and finds her pushing back. Pulsing with a confident and cathartic energy, her incredible voice, drawing comparisons to such icons as Nina Simone and Carole King, soars even as her songs dive deep. Although she wears many influences on her sleeve, Costelo is unquestionably herself, a singular artist of maturity and importance, a maverick, unfettered by trend, fashion or industry 'pathway'.
Costelo has assembled an ace group of Canadian players for the album, including Glenn Milchem on drums (Blue Rodeo), Anna Ruddick on bass (Randy Bachman), Leith Fleming-Smith on organ (Matt Mays, Hawksley Workman) and her long-time partner, Clive MacNutt, on guitar. Taking inspiration from sources as varied as Ryan Adams and Randy Newman, Costelo delivers a genre-defying batch of songs that sound at once timeless, timely and completely fresh.
Her 2016 release, DOWN BELOW, THE STATUS QUO, was nominated for a total of 12 awards in her home on the East Coast of Canada including a win for Solo Recording of the Year and Producer of the Year, making her the first woman to receive the prestigious award. Costelo has had the opportunity to open for acts such as Mavis Staples, Dr. John, Bettye Lavette and with Levon Helm's Midnight Ramble Band and will be starting an extensive North American tour on October 19th in Toronto.

JEALOUS OF THE BIRDS SHARE NEW SONG “MARROW”
ANNOUNCES NEW EP WISDOM TEETH OUT FEBRUARY 2019
LISTEN TO “MARROW:
“Hamilton sings with poise and self-assurance in a voice equally capable of whiskey-toned murmurs and full-throated melodicism… she has a magnetic presence that makes these songs mesmerizing.”
“[Jealous of the Birds] has a marvelous way with trippy, hallucinatory lyrical imagery.”
“Naomi Hamilton — a.k.a. Jealous of the Birds — was one of NPR Music's favorite SXSW discoveries.”
“How unique this record is, she’s really building her own path brick by brick.”
October 17, 2018 – Jealous of the Birds share a new track “Marrow” today, along with an announcement of a forthcoming EP titled Wisdom Teeth, due out February 2 on Canvasback Music (US) and Hand in Hive (UK & Europe). This will be her first EP of completely new material since signing with Canvasback Music.
Naomi Hamilton, aka Jealous of the Birds, explains of “Marrow”, "This is my attempt to articulate what it's like to be a human being navigating one's inner and outer worlds. After I graduated university a year ago, I became much more resolute about chasing a life in music, art and travelling. To me, 'Marrow' captures that sense of striving for authenticity in all its colours and forms."
Wisdom Teeth follows the successful summer EP The Moths Of What I Want Will Eat Me In My Sleep which featured the singles “Plastic Skeletons” and “Russian Doll”. “Plastic Skeletons” has been featured on NPR’s All Songs Considered, XPN’s Gotta Hear Song of the Week, and BBC Radio 1’s Tune of the Week.
Hamilton released her first EP Capricorn while studying English and Creative Writing at Queen’s University, Belfast, Northern Ireland. Then following the release of her next venture Parma Violets, came a serendipitous SXSW performance that same year that ultimately led to the connection with Canvasback Music. Much of her lyrics come from personal notebooks of poetry or grow out of literary references from her reading collection.

Impact Date: Oct 29 2018 00:00:00
from his forthcoming album due spring 2019
At 26 years old, Berlin-based Italian musician Fil Bo Riva hits his stride with this compelling indie anthem that also heralds a new album and tour for 2019 and a nomination for best singer-songwriter at Music Moves Europe Talent Awards [the EU's new prize for popular and contemporary music.] Born and raised in Rome, Fil decamped to Dublin for school and later relocated to Berlin in 2012. His first EP, If You're Right, It's Alright gave him the platform to make a name for himself throughout Europe touring in support of Matt Corby, Aurora, Milky Chance and Joan as Police Woman, as well as selling out headline shows around the continent.
"Go Rilla" combines dynamic indie-pop and indie-rock influences, using addictively energetic guitars and an intelligent hook-line building to a powerful bridge that will have even the most staid listeners moving to Fil and his band's bright rhythms. Speaking on the background behind his kinetic new single, Fil Bo Riva says, "I first came up with the idea to the song in Manchester in 2016 while supporting Joan as Police Woman through Europe that winter. It was raining outside and I was in the bathroom just beofre soundcheck…somehow I started staring at this poster of the club we were playing called Gorilla Club. I don't know why, but I just got a flash [of] inspiration, took my phone out and immediately started singing the chorus, melody and words."
