Gavin DeGraw’s powerful new album MAKE A MOVE is a victorious and creative musical return.  On the follow-up to 2011’s Sweeter, Gavin DeGraw has experienced a creative and commercial renaissance displaying his even more focused vocal and artistic talent, his assured energy, musically expanded palette, and sharp, detail-driven lyrics.

 

The first single, “Best I Ever Had,” is the most up-tempo thing DeGraw has done yet, charging out of the gate with a galloping rhythm and lively horns. “I feel like this album is the strongest record I’ve made,” DeGraw says. “It’s a clear evolution from what I’ve been doing. I’ve taken more risks, like learning the value of having space in the writing. Silence is louder than the highest note.”

Cloudbusting - The Music Of Kate Bush - 2024 TOUR

‘Utterly, surreally brilliant’ - Mick Wall, Classic Rock Magazine

Cloudbusting are thrilled to bring their stunning ‘The Line, The Cross and The Curve’ tour to venues across the UK for 2024! Featuring songs from the legendary short film of the same name which Kate Bush released in 1994, this spectacular new show offers audiences a fresh ‘take’ on those tracks that first appeared on ‘The Red Shoes’ album - all delivered with breath-taking vocals from Mandy Watson and superb musicianship from the live band.

With a set list that also includes classic hits such as Wuthering Heights, Babooshka, Hounds of Love and Running Up That Hill - the world-wide No.1 hit single that took every music chart by storm 37 years after its release; this concert tour will no doubt be selling out fast, so book your tickets now!

‘That gave me a shiver’- Jeremy Vine BBC Radio 2

Cloudbusting are the longest running and most universally celebrated tribute to the music of Kate Bush. With TV appearances and live performances across both the UK and Europe, the band has earned an enviable reputation for being unquestionably the most accurate and authentic live experience for Kate fans.

Significantly, they are the only band in the world to have performed Kate’s music with her original bass player and long standing sound engineer Del Palmer, as well as drummer and percussionist Preston Heyman who appeared on the Tour Of Life, Never For Ever & The Dreaming. The band has also performed with Stewart Avon-Arnold - Kate’s co-choreographer and dance partner who appeared with her in so many of those iconic videos and performances throughout her career. That’s quite an endorsement for Cloudbusting but it also stands as a reflection of the talent, tenacity and passion that the 5-piece band has for Kate’s stunning music.

 ‘I could have been listening to Kate herself!’ - Preston Heyman

The show is enhanced with stunning back-projection visuals which reflect the character and mood of the songs, making a Cloudbusting concert an event that no Kate Bush fan will want to miss!

Embrace are a five-piece band from Brighouse, West Yorkshire.

  • Danny McNamara - Vocals
  • Richard McNamara - Guitar
  • Mike Heaton - Drums
  • Steve Firth - Bass
  • Mickey Dale - Keyboard

Embrace return in 2014, releasing their first album in eight years with their self-titled new album ‘Embrace’ released on 28th April through Cooking Vinyl.

With three #1 albums, six top ten singles, sold out arena shows and well over a million album sales behind them, Embrace were on the crest of a wave when they suddenly vanished without a trace. But now they are back with a fantastic new album conveying a rawer, darker sound whilst still keeping their signature anthems and huge choruses. Embrace are set to return with a bang. A big bang.

Danny: "The album feels like we've come full circle to the band we were before we even got signed, but the clock is ticking louder than it ever has before and everything feels more do or die now. All our original influences have floated back to the surface. I have to say that for my part, we've never felt more focussed or distilled. I think we've done it at last - we've finally made an album that's better than the first one."
