Pensive four-track EP epitomises meditation and relaxation 

Hailing from St Albans after a period of studying in Sheffield, Adam Protz has had several years to perfect his craft of composing. Using delicate piano melodies and intricate instrumentals, Adam Protz has created his beautiful EP ‘Movements’, consisting of four alluring and exquisite tracks. In the past, Adam has written music for films, animated shorts, a dance show, an educational DVD and even a brewery documentary!

Protz has been writing music since the tender age of fifteen and began his journey into music writing heavy rock songs with soft orchestral bridge sections as a contrast, this developed into a desire to write for Hollywood movies. However, after listening to minimalistic meditative piano music, written by the likes of Ludovico Einaudi, Adam soon discovered that he was much more suited to creating emotive music in which he could incorporate his own personality and spirituality.

The lack of lyrics in the music leaves it up to the listener to interpret the piece as they wish. It provokes an emotional reaction and is also incredibly relaxing. The ‘Movements’ EP is proof that lyrics aren’t a necessity to provoke powerful sentimental thoughts.

Protz aims to inspire relaxation and offers the perfect setting for escaping to through his music. A firm believer that the world is over-obsessed with Smart-phones and social networks, Protz encourages listeners, from all walks of life, to return to the roots and escape with him into his musical world of beautiful, elegant minimalism.

‘Movements’ is due for release on the 30th November.

One of Northumberland’s most talented emerging artists, acoustic singer-songwriter, Jessie Lowes is set to release her new single ‘Only One’ November 28th. Following the success of her last single ‘Stars’, Lowes popularity  has soared as she gains national recognition for her beautiful,  emotive music.

 

True to Lowes style of raw and emotive lyrics, the new track explores the heartbreak of losing someone you love, in an honest and heartfelt manner.

 

Lowes life has not been an easy journey and she has been through a series of testing and turbulent times. Spending some of her early life in foster care, music has always been the one constant in Lowes’ life.

 

Recent years have also been tough on Lowes as she lost her mother of whom she was very close with and has suffered the agony of a marital breakup. The talented Lowes transforms the pain of these torturing times into beautifully moving music that speaks directly from her heart to the audience.

 

An ex-cage fighter and club level rugby player, Lowes’ masculine background contrasts her delicate lyrics and soulful delivery. Lowes music delves into the depths of human emotion and beautifully expresses the pain and beauty of life.

 

Lowes has recently released the video for ‘Only One’. The video aptly captures Lowes heartache, delivering a powerful and moving visual of the raw emotion Lowes emits.

New band ‘Ritual’ formed of folk musician come hip hop producer and multi-instrumentalist

Alternative, Electronica

Ritual

London based, new band Ritual is a collaboration between an Irish born folk singer/songwriter, an underground hip hop producer (who’s worked with the likes of Talib Kweli) and a multi-instrumentalist
who’s given his hand to dozens of the UK’s most talented singers.

Since the start of 2014, Ritual have been building a buzz in the UK music industry for
understated but powerful songwriting and production, now with the release of their first taster track‘The Fall’, the introduction to their journey and their own sound has arrived.

‘The Fall’ is as emotive as it is beautiful. A burning ballad of relationships, ‘The Fall’ draws on subtle elements of rural folk, r’n’b and a thumping drum that resonates to the very core, marrying the sounds in a messy bow of inner-city darkness.

As a reoccurring, conceptual feature on the album – the band use dual vocals with female singers throughout, expect some exciting recordings in the coming months to be unveiled with songs featuring
artists such as Charlotte OC, Delilah and Damien Rice’s long term collaborator Lisa Hannigan.

Hear ‘The Fall’ here and prepare for more hypnotic tunes from the pair
