  2. Conor Houston has established himself as one of the most respected musical artists in the city over recent years and so we are delighted to hear that he's just announced he will be releasing an album of new material. The album title is 'Impartial Advice' and features 7 brand new tracks Recorded at Redfern Studios the album is to be released on Monday 10th July and we can't wait to hear it Keep an eye out on Conor's Facebook page for more news on this - https://www.facebook.com/ConorHoustonOfficial
  3. Big show at The Leadmill tonight at Crooked Flames and Adelphi support JUDAS for a big Monday night out With both bands set to drop new music and videos shortly, there should be a good crowd in The Leadmill for our hometown bands before JUDAS take to the stage as the Sheffield leg of their current tour A few tickets left on The Leadmill website or pay on the door on the night Either way head down to The Leadmill tonight for this lineup!
  4. Rising star Chanel Yates and The Visual today released their new EP 'Castaway' We don't do reviews (we leave that to others) but couldn't help having a nosey at this one Featuring four tracks in total this EP opens up with The Station that floats along very nicely with some neat little quirky guitar plucks as well as Chanel dropping her trademark vocals over the top and the whole track is a very easy listen indeed. Next up is the title track 'Castaway' with a cracking chorus of emotion that is already our favourite song from Chanel and her band The Visual. If this is the shape of things to come then Chanel has the potential to really grow at a rapid rate if she makes and takes the right choices in this music 'industry'. Third track 'Circles' shows Chanel's versatility with an intimate stripped back warm opening, with some truly exceptional vocals bursting out of this one and some great songwriting skills on show. Throw some saxophone in and you have a great recording going on. The EP culminates with Sunburn which is a lively upbeat reggae tinged affair that chugs along well, and a song that would be best accompanied by walking next to a flowing stream with an ice cream in the blazing sun Chanel Yates and The Visual are a young upcoming band just getting started and as an EP this demonstrates that all the potential is there for sure. Where they go next is totally up to them and the future looks bright The band celebrate this EP release with a show at Corporation on Saturday 19th May.

  5. Happy Birthday Reyt Good Music! Keep pushing on!
  6. Tramlines Festival this year is shaping up to be an interesting and exciting one. With the official festival focussing on just three main stage areas (all outdoors), the fringe side of things has stepped forward to take over the urban side of Sheffield over the weekend. Non more-so than the Crystal Stage, curated by Aggressive Management, which is traditionally a venue that champions new bands, new music and artists who are yet to be discovered by many Sheffielders Already announced as headlining the Sunday this year for example is KEIR, an outstanding artist from the South West who is currently under-wraps but headed for huge things in the future. On the more local front today saw SUNDANCE announced as playing Tramlines Crystal Stage this year. This young band have much promise and although it's very early in their musical careers they're already forming a wide and loyal army of fans as well as starting to pen some great songs. The future seems very bright for this band who have already struck up relationships with some of the industry tastemakers and professionals, and Crystal Stage seems a perfect platform for them to show what they can do. As always entry to Crystal is free all weekend (no tickets, passes or wristbands needed - just walk on in!) and over the weekend promises to be the single-most exciting fringe stage of them all. Make sure you're there for Sundance's set too and see why a few people have their eye on them for the future Tramlines Crystal Stage 2017 event page - https://www.facebook.com/events/486386981551402/ Sundance - https://www.facebook.com/sundancemusicuk/

This time around it's expected to be one in, one out for their set. Bayonet are a band on the rise and to step out on this stage this summer will be a big one for them and their fans as it's expected to be Crystal's biggest year ever with a massive lineup expected.

  11. FRAZER have been relatively quiet over the last 12 months or so but that's been for a reason. The last time they stepped out onto the Tramlines Crystal Stage they attracted some big opportunities as a result and have been hidden away since then writing, finding a new sound, and heading down to the big studios of London recording tracks that will be making a public appearance very soon. With a big new sound, an exciting new style and a bunch of new catchy as hell tracks FRAZER are back and announced to play Tramlines Crystal Stage 2017. As always the stage is free to nip into with no tickets or wristband needed at all Also announced so far on the Tramlines Crystal Stage are Trash, Desperate Journalist, Adelphi, The Seamonsters, Sleeptalking, and Billy Bibby and the Wry Smiles. With more announcements to come it's worth heading over to the event page and get involved - https://www.facebook.com/events/486386981551402/ Whatever you do make sure you're there for FRAZER's set - they'll knock your socks clean off
