Renegade soul-rockers, the Heavy are back with the release of their new album, The Glorious Dead, their third full-length LP, and the follow-up to their acclaimed sophomore record The House That Dirt Built (2009). Self-produced and with their unique, raw eclecticism fully intact, it’s their most fully-realized record yet, mixing together soul, hip hop, rock, blues and funk into glorious, raucous party music that is equally full of heart.
Scottish-born singer and songwriter Emeli Sand?, who has been thrilling fans across the Atlantic over the past year with her rich, soulful voice and sophisticated songwriting, releases her debut album in the US, Our Version Of Events. The recent winner of the BRIT Critics’ Choice award (previous winners include Adele and Florence + the Machine), Sand? was hand-selected by Coldplay to open its current arena tour, and opened for Alicia Keys earlier this year. Our Version Of Events, featuring the UK hits ‘Heaven’ and ‘Next To Me,’ reveals Sand? to be an uncompromising creative force.
Produced by Grammy-winning, industry veteran, Steven Miller, The Endangered is a soulful collection of five beautifully written and passionately performed songs about love, loss, living and learning. This debut EP showcases the Endangered’s unique blend of vintage soul, adult contemporary R&B, rock, hip-hop and jazz influences.
The Endangered features the standout single ‘Calling On You,’ as well as ‘Broke Heart,’ the first song ever written by the band. The Endangered is vocalist Maiya Sykes, guitarist Nick Block, bassist Frank Abraham and drummer Gene Coye.
