Chrissy Lemonte - 'Remember My Name'

Chrissy Lemonte is a London born independent singer-songwriter who came to prominence in the UK top 40 Charts with the MOBO nominee girl band ‘Asia Blue’, with one single being the Radio 1 Breakfast Show track of the week.

Chrissy became a solo artist opening at Ronnie Scotts for Beverley Knight.  Her career began writing songs at the age of 7, singing and performing with her 5 sisters, ‘The Mohabir Sisters’ internationally.

Her musical style is primarily NeoSoul/R&B with strong harmonies and her music is inspired by influences in Jazz, Soul and Gospel to name a few genres.  Chrissy has worked with world renowned producers such as George Duke, Mike Peden, Sheridan Tongue, Andrew Franklin and many others,  She was signed by A&M Records in the UK and PRA Records for the USA. 

With this latest single release, “Remember My Name?” from the upcoming EP, written by Chrissy Lemonte and produced by her and Carlton Romillie, her listeners will be in no doubt where she stands on betrayal and encourages you to look past the surface with powerful lyrics like ‘see past my hair, my skin my dress, believe my words and praise my intellect’. “Remember My Name?” demands a response and stirs emotions and memories of ones who may have done us wrong in the past. Whether you are the abused or abuser, you will relate to this one. Chrissy certainly tells it as it is with hard hitting words wrapped around soulful licks and harmonies!

Chrissy Lemonte’s new single ‘Remember My Name?’ – set for release on April 1st.

The Gary Summers Band - 'One in a Million'

The Gary Summers band are a four-piece, London-based melodic rock band fronted by singer/songwriter Gary Summers.

Think 60’s, 70’s strong memorable melodies with soaring harmonies, singalong choruses, classic rock multi-tracked guitars and keyboards.

Gary has been busy on the live music scene for many years, including most recently as bassist with legendary Gillan drummer Mick Underwood, including an appearance at the 02 Academy in Sheffield and with former Whitesnake rockers Snakecharmer.

Four tracks from the 11 track album ‘One in a Million’ by the Gary Summers band are available to stream on Spotify, Apple Music and all good digital stores. The full album is also available to buy at Amazon, check out the reviews there. There are 2 excellent videos to view on Facebook and YouTube for the singles One in a Million and There She Goes.

Robin Miller - 'Beelines'

‘Beelines’ features thirteen tracks of deft melody-driven fingerpicking. It is a natural sound with little adornment and an effortless way in simultaneous melody and open-tuned chordal parts.

The tracks hint at the holy trinity of 60s British fingerstyle guitar (Bert Jansch, Davy Graham, John Renbourn), display a touch of Hebridean heritage and bring in influences from around the world.

The title track ‘Beelines’ references Robin’s father’s lifelong beekeeping passion. The Moorish ‘Jessie’s Kaftan’ started life in Glasgow and was completed after a trip to Morocco.

‘Rainer’, the current single from the album is a moving slide guitar tribute to the much-missed Arizona musician Rainer Ptacek.

‘Tigh-na-Beart’ and ‘Birthe Marie Sails to Lunga’ reference the western isles – the metallic ‘Wyre Majestic’ is a musical sketch of the famous rusting shipwreck caught on the rocks between Islay and Jura.

“Although the album is instrumental I had fairly clear ideas about what I wanted each tune to say emotionally or in relation to the musicians who have inspired me. I hope that this can be wordlessly conveyed to anyone listening – hopefully the melodies and emotion come across more than the technique.
