Mothlite is the brainchild of Daniel O’Sullivan. A prolific composer and multi-instrumentalist, O’Sullivan is a member of Ulver and a regular collaborator with Sunn O))), Guapo, ?thenor, Miracle and Grumbling Fur.
Mothlite allows him to move in different musical directions to those taken by his other projects, recalling the deepest remnants of 80′s sounds (Talk Talk, Japan, Cocteau Twins) and fusing it with an innovative, forward-thinking approach to programming and sound design. The result is a grandiose gothic-pop euphoria that retains a subliminally progressive musical depth.
Finally reunited with their original singer Michael Sadler, the band is stronger than ever with their 20th release, 20/20, and it has all that it takes to become an instant progressive rock classic. The album features 10 brand new songs, never missing the distinctive sound of Saga’s legendary hits. The opener ‘Six Feet Under’ features a dominant keyboard sound, roaring guitars and a chorus you can’t get out of your head. Followed by the catchy, high energy driven ‘Anywhere You Wanna Go’. The emotional ballad ‘Lost For Words’ once again demonstrates Sadler’s incredible vocal range and charisma.
Maia Sharp’s new album Change The Ending is the soulful amalgam of her diverse skills and rich experience. From the opening track, ‘Me After You,’ to ‘Standing Out In A Crowd,’ an anthemic ride up the road to confidence, to the album’s instrumental closer ‘Buy My Love (Remix)’ which features Maia’s tasteful saxophone playing, Sharp shows why so many industry heavyweights record her songs and sing her praises. The self-produced album features background vocals from her talented friends, the Rescue’s Adrianne Gonzales, Garrison Starr, Dawn Thomas and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, Bonnie Raitt.
