EMM GRYNER – NORTHERN...

In a career spanning over a decade and a half, Emm Gryner has amazed fans and critics alike with her daring forays into various genres and collaborations and for calling her own shots. The myriad of milestones achieved during the eight years since she was unceremoniously dumped by a major label mere months after releasing her sophomore album, Public, are proof that she excels in her chosen musical journey.   Gryner can name-drop a diverse roster of collaborators and admirers that includes everyone from Nelly Furtado and Lou Barlow to Rob Zombie and Def Leppard; the last repaid her for covering “Pour Some Sugar on Me” on 2001’s Girl Versions by inviting her to play piano on their own covers record,Yeah in 2006. In addition, Emm spent a year and a half as one of David Bowie’s hand-picked backup singers and one of Gryner’s many admirers is U2 front man Bono, who named ...

NAZARETH – BIG DOGZ

After the critical success of the recent album “The Newz”, Nazareth approached the recording of this new studio album with a sophisticated challenge: no tricks, no studio gimmicks – just the real thing - the authentic sound of the four members of the band in the studio. The band ultimately wanted to bring the real spirit of rock and roll back. That’s why it only takes one play to realize “Big Dogz“ will be a fans’ favourite album as much as “No Mean City“(1979) or“Hair of The Dog“ (1975).

RED HOT CHILLI PEPPERS –...

Children are born, but a friend dies. A new guitarist arrives as the old one leaves. And a band is reborn after an overdue break. Beginnings and endings. That's I'm With You, truly the beginning of a new era for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The 10th album of the Los Angeles band's singular career sees the band refreshed, renewed, once again working with producer Rick Rubin (their fifth partnership, including the last album, 2006's monster Stadium Arcadium two-CD tour de force). It expands the same combination of funk and finesse, intensity and tenderness that's made the Peppers sine qua non in modern rock, but with a new set of life experiences from the intervening years that coalesced into a dynamically fresh start. I'm With You was written collectively by the four members - founding singer Anthony Kiedis and bassist Flea, drummer Chad Smith (who's been with the band since 1989) and ...
