Friday Live: Mud On The Tyres

Mud On The Tyres, are a group of experienced musicians hailing from South Wales who were drawn together by a love of upbeat, fun, country style music.

So far they have had some great times at festivals, played some excellent venues and have been fortunate enough to win 2 days recording time at the amazing Rockfield Studios by winning the, “Battle of the Bands,” at the Rockfield Country Music Festival. They have focused on creating an atmosphere of fun with their music and performances to ensure they appeal to music lovers of all generations. It’s clear to see that making people tap their feet, dance and laugh at some of their lyrics makes for a slightly different night out than people expect. This, of course, doesn’t stop them writing more touching and melodic songs that clearly show the versatility of the band.

Their self produced 4 track E.P. “Going Home” tries to cover the main focus of the band, from fun lighthearted songs to touching heartfelt love songs and ballads.

Friday Live: Nuadha Quartet

"World jazz with an endearing Scots lilt, featuring strong themes, passionate sax and Jaco-style electric bass." The Independent.

Through playing together over the past three years Nuadha Quartet have established a wide-ranging approach to music yet still produce a distinctive ‘Nuadha’ sound. While the emphasis is on memorable tunes the band also draws influence from Brazilian, Moroccan and Gaelic cultures.

Based in the Welsh Borders, Nuadha Quartet was put together in 2016 by Colin Tully, composer of cult classic film, Gregory’s Girl and ex-John Martyn sideman, Chris Egan on tenor and soprano sax, Carles Riba on electric bass and Pedro Brown on drums and percussion. Brazilian rhythms, a shamelessly melodic approach with a dash of Celtic seasoning are blended to create an appetising jazz stew.

Friday Live: Luke De-Sciscio

Luke De-Sciscio is a UK singer-songwriter whose music sounds like it was transported from a different era of songwriting. Poetically intense and sonically intimate, his releases are recorded almost exclusively live. 

Luke's thirst for authenticity draws from the age old adage; 'the truth will set you free.' This mantra which underpins the entirety of his catalogue takes no fuller flight than on 2019's critically acclaimed 'Good Bye Folk Boy'. This 11 track journey was recorded sequentially over the space of 2 months, with each song being recorded on the day it was written.  Shortly after the digital release of 'Good Bye Folk Boy’, a collaboration between Vinyl Moon and Luke De-Sciscio was announced that will finally bring Luke De-Sciscio's music to vinyl.   

 ‘Good Bye Folk Boy” has received critical acclaim.  The Indie Folx awarded the album 4.3/5 stars describing 'Good Bye Folk Boy' as the epitome of the genre. We All Want Someone To Shout For championed the record claiming 'this is why we do what we do.' To pre-order the Good Bye Folk Boy album head to: https://lukedesciscio.bandcamp.com/
