Top Music Tips From Industry Taste-makers with 7pm Management – April 2014

Seven Webster & Claire Lloyd from music management company 7pm Management ask some of the music industry’s tastemakers which acts we should be cranking up and rocking out to this April. Here’s what they had to say….

Leon Harris- (The Qemists) Rag’N’Bone Man Rag’N’Bone Man seems like he’s just starting out, but you can tell from his voice and what he has recorded so far that he deserves immediate recognition. He was supporting Pharoahe Monch in Brighton and London a few weeks ago and based on everything I have heard it wont be long until he will be headlining these rooms if not bigger in his own right . Great stuff.

Vicky Purcell Editor of Ramzine. 
Villains Formed from the ashes of Essex band Never Means Maybe, Villains have had a fresh start. This year they bring something new to the rock industry. Their self-titled debut album has just been released, having had BBC Radio1 airplay – this album has certainly caused anticipation and hype. Listening to the album it goes through the emotions – it’s uplifting, reflective and fun. Manifesting an explosive performance in the past, it will be interesting to see what this newly created band bring to a live show.

James Sherry Division Promotions 
Sleaford Mods  Without doubt the most exciting music I have heard in a very long time. It’s punk rock, but like you’ve never heard it before. Like seventies New York electronic art punks Suicide but from the streets of Nottingham. Pure street poetry set over a clanking bass and minimal rhythms. Like John Cooper Clarke but with twice the venom and acidity. Vocalist Jason Williamson’s way with words and lyrical rhymes are powerful, thought-provoking and at times, totally hilarious. He also swears better than any other f**ker I’ve heard. You need to hear this.
Michael Smith – The Entertainer Magazine (editor) Jeremy Neale Every year we see a number of great Australian acts hitting the UK for Brightons Great Escape and after hearing Jeremy Neale I would have to tip him as this years wild card. His music has great charm and uniqueness about it as do his videos. They draw from the past but add a twist of the future too. If you like quirky interesting music then check out Swing Left by Jeremy Neale.

Seven Webster – 7pm Management Massive Also hailing from Australia and following in the tradtion of great Aussie rock bands like ACDC, Airbuourne, Electric Mary etc are new young Aussie rockers Massive. After recently signing a global record deal with Earache records I see this band lighting up pretty fast in the rock world as their high octane riffs and no holds barred rock does nt challenge the listener but oozes everything you want to hear in a great rock n roll band. In short they have the potential to be their name. check out their new single One by One.

look out for more industry picks next month…
