CHER – DANCING QUEEN

The one and only Cher is set to release Dancing Queen, her coming album made up of all Abba hits. The Oscar, Emmy and Grammy Award winning icon was inspired to record the album following her stunning performance in the recently-released mega-hit film, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again. Dancing Queen was recorded and produced in London and Los Angeles with Cher's longtime collaborator Mark Taylor, who previously produced Cher's global smash "Believe" which was number one in over 50 countries. Commented Cher: "I've always liked Abba and saw the original Mamma Mia musical on Broadway three times. After filming Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, I was reminded again of what great and timeless songs they wrote and started thinking 'why not do an album of their music?' The songs were harder to sing than I imagined but I'm so happy with how the music came out. I'm really excited ...

ROXANNE POTVIN – ALL IT...

On her new five-song EP All It Was, JUNO Award-nominated singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Roxanne Potvin goes deeper into her personal journey, adding more elements to an ever-expanding sound. Having taken full control of her career with the selfproduced, independently released 2016 album For Dreaming—containing the singles “I Thought I’d Miss You” and “The March”—All It Was builds on its predecessor’s “roots-pop” approach with the help of Potvin’s loyal team that includes guitarist Christine Bougie, organist Jesse O’Brien, bassist Mark McIntyre, drummer Olivier Fairfield and others. The EP’s psychedelic-tinged title track sets the tone for a lyrical exploration of love’s complexities, with Potvin also incorporating deep Southern soul on “I Know It’s Good,” bittersweet balladry on “Last Days Of Summer,” breezy pop on “Lonely Island,” and mesmerizing nouvelle chanson on “Nuit Électrique.” All It Was marks Potvin’s first release with Comino Productions, and its label imprint Comino Music, which has helped produce a “video EP” that will serve as a ...

JOHN GROBAN – BRIDGES

It both 'bridges' my musical worlds old and new, and also hopefully plays a small part in connecting people in that unique way music can."

MODERN SPACE – FLIP FOR...

Modern Space V2.0 are now set to release their new EP titled Flip For It. Graham is stoked to have this new band - Sammy Nyberg and Graham Queen on guitars – along for the ride. “We’ve got a new record, new guys, and this new style that I always wanted.” Flip For It immediately marks a great leap forward from the tenderfoot songs they laid out on Before Sunrise. Channelling influences such as the Vaccines and the Strokes – whose song “The Modern Age” inspired the first half of the band’s name – Modern Space have returned with a new album that beams with a newfound assuredness. Each and every one of the cuts feels ready for heavy A-list rotation – from “A Small Pocket,” a song the Strokes will wish they’d written a decade ago, to the soon-to-be massive sing-along anthem that is “Just Quit,” to the sleek, Motown ...
