Miraculous Mule – Sound of the Summer

miraculousmuleMiraculous Mule have been cutting their teeth and earned their stripes over the years with a devout immersion in gothic American roots music, before that particular bandwagon arrived in town again, and again after it left. Brothers Michael J Sheehy and Patrick McCarthy were born into a rock’n’roll- home, with Elvis and Tammy as surrogate parents.

Michael J Sheehy has fronted Dream City Film Club, his self-titled solo work and the Hired Mourners and Saint Silas Intercession, with his brother Pat at his side for the most part. Witnesses to these outings of theirs will know that the soul and the confrontation they sweated was, and is, real. They can play and they can sing. The edge that they skirt likely comes in part from their school of hard knocks, central London council-estate , Irish Catholic upbringing. Michael, Pat and Miraculous Mule’s third member and old friend Ian Burns were raised in the same estate (Saint Silas in Kentish Town).
Live and on record, Miraculous Mule do indeed kick like their namesake. Mixing up old spirituals, blues and work songs. The real deal, testament to which is the inclusion of their first single Satisfied on Blues magazine’s current covermount CD

Ryan Sheridan – I’m Alive

Ryan SheridanRyan Sheridan, a multi instrumentalist, came from the busking streets to a centre stage headline act in less than a year. A gifted and inventive guitarist, he has
combined his six-string skills with percussive attack to create a unique sound that has thrilled packed houses worldwide. A born entertainer, this passionate singer
with a gift for storytelling is a commanding stage presence; and his acoustic-driven, anthemic songs, connects with audiences wherever he is seen and heard.
His Irish debut hit – Jigsaw – was a massive airplay record in his native land, and helped drive his first album to platinum status at home. Packed arena shows followed with Bryan Adams, The Script and Taylor Swift, and Ryan’s international reputation started to spread.

With a teenage apprenticeship on Broadway NYC, it is no surprise that live performance underpins the ability of Ryan Sheridan. High-energy explosions such as ‘Stand Up Tall’ are now balanced with haunting ballads like ‘Stay’ and ‘Home.’

Val Emmich – Nobody Makes It On Their Own

valemmich

Val Emmich says, “I started playing music and writing songs when I was fifteen. After graduating Rutgers University, I got my first record deal with Sony/Epic. Since then, I’ve released more than a dozen albums as a singer-songwriter and toured the U.S. several times over. The Star-Ledger very kindly proclaimed me “one of the finest songwriters in the Garden State, [and] also one of the most prolific.”
I’ve also been acting since I was eighteen. I’ve had roles on Vinyl (HBO), 30 Rock (NBC), The Big C (Showtime) and Ugly Betty (ABC) and been featured in a bunch of commercials.
Last but not least, I write fiction. My debut novel, The Reminders, is based on a short story that won an award in Glimmer Train’s New Writers competition and will be published in May 2017 by Little Brown in the U.S./Canada and by a dozen other publishers abroad. It has also been optioned for a film.”
This track is featured on his brand new album, “Whatever’s Chasing You.”

Lydia Loveless – Longer

Lydia_Loveless_Vert_David_T_Kindler_Some_Girls_StyleBlessed with a commanding, blast-it-to-the-back-of-the-room voice, the 25-year-old Lydia Loveless was raised on a family farm in Coshocton, Ohio—a small weird town with nothing to do but make music. With a dad who owned a country music bar, Loveless often woke up with a house full of touring musicians scattered on couches and floors. She has turned this potential nightmare scenario (eww….touring musicians smell…) into a wellspring of creativity.
When she got older, in the time-honored traditions of teenage rebellion, she turned her back on these roots, moved to the city (Columbus, OH) and immersed herself in the punk scene, soaking up the musical and attitudinal influences of everyone from Charles Bukowski to Richard Hell to Hank III.
