The Rin Tins/Little Brother Eli at Mr Wolfs
Thanks to everyone who came down to Mr Wolf’s last Saturday for a spectacular night of music. The overall night was a success and Little Brother Eli and The Rin Tins both smashing it on stage, getting the crowd dancing away on their feet with sounds of jazz, rock, blues and soul. I photographed the show with some great snaps which are now up on the Facebook for you guys to view and enjoy. The guys from Little Brother Eli had a great time and will be down again for another show in Bristol very soon!
Featured Artist – Erica Russo And The Good Sport
Our featured artist this week is New York folk band Erica Russo And The Good Sport consisting of Erica herself, Billy Leva, John Zurek and Ryland Hall. Not your average day folk band , these guys bring fire of truth and energy into their songs – Their debut album Little House, Little Hill came out this fall and it is a delight to hear. To find out more about the album and the band check out their featured post.
Well what can I say about this guy, one of my favourite artist of 2013!. Only a day to go till his new EP Drowning Butterflies is released and to get things buzzing this week he has released the new single and official video to Drowning Butterflies. Can’t wait to review the new record! Check out and stream the new single below and pre-order the forthcoming EP now on iTunes.
Jimmy Skoog Debut Single ‘Wild Things’
If you’ve been check out the new music releases on CreativeSessionsPresents then you may have heard about Swedish hip hop artists JaeWon (Jimmy Skoog). Well I’ve been following his music over the past few months and when it comes to hard working and determination, he’s spot on! After months of mixing, recording and crafting his sound as well as his own remixes on smash hits including Rudimental’s Waiting All Night and Bastille’s Pompeii, the time has finally come for the release of his official debut single. Wild Things is a dark, uptempo song with live guitars and heavy percussion that serves as the first chapter in the story of a kid wanting to break old patterns and create something new. A story of despair and sadness, but also a story of hope and love.
Drawing inspiration from his two favourite artists Jay Z and John Mayer, Jimmy is ready to show the world what he is made of. Check out and stream the new single producer by Alex Isaak and with vocals from singer/songwriter Peter Krafft.
Track of The Week – Zero Gravity By Of Verona
If you haven’t already, have a listen to the alternative electro pop sounds of Of Verona. Zero Gravity is a delicate and in-depth piece with an euphoric edge, check it out and stream the single below.
EP of The Week – George Ezra – ‘Did You Hear The Rain?’
It’s only been a short while since I saw George Ezra live on stage and now the time has come for his debut EP release this week which includes the outstanding singles Budapest and his newest single Did You Hear The Rain? There’s more to this young singer/songwriter than his acoustic guitar, the deep lyrics, soulful vocals, blues, rock and indie sound elements and vocals reminiscent to Johnny Cash – 2014 is going to be a promising year for George Ezra! Check out the music video to Did You Hear The Rain? here and download the debut EP on iTunes.
Really interesting submission I got this week and it’s one that everyone should hear! It’s a rock duo all the way from Costa Rica known as Colornoise, I was very impressed after listening to their single Button and if you’re a fan of rock noise with some edge then look know further than these girls. The duo released their debut album Polychronic last month and it’s a worthy listen – punchy, striking riffs and a lot of noise, you can download the album on the band’s official band page.
CSP Interview – Silver Arm
Another band who’s been making a lot of noise in the last few months are London’s quartet band Silver Arm. This week saw the announcement of their new single Steady Like A Vein and it’s a scorcher! Check out my interview with Gareth this week and look out for the single release on the 25th November.

ThisisDA has been straight fire with his tight flows and No Wave is no different. It’s just only a matter of time before we hear the highly anticipated debut album Super Arkane. Enjoy the flows and stream No Wave below.
Over in LA is another hip hop artist who’s new album I’m eagerly anticipating for and it’s from Mutant Academy’s veteran Forest Punk. If you haven’t heard of this guy then I suggest you check out our review on his first self released record Possessed. A story of a young artist sharing his views and knowledge of the world, the beginning of an era of where he is at today in terms of lyrical ability and his love of poetry.
