Plested

I had listened to Plested before, but never in depth, so I was in for a positive surprise when I discovered he was the opening act for Lauren Aquilina at The Deaf Institute. Just him and a guitar, with strumming patterns that amateur guitarists/ singer songwriters would not find hard to pick up (perhaps like […]

Lauren Aquilina – Deaf Institute

As well as being a passionate music reviewer, I am also part of many “fandoms”. Fandoms are basically kingdoms of fans – ranging from Sherlockians (Sherlock fans) to Swifties (Taylor Swift fans).

Paper Jackets – Trigger

I wish I had discovered this band sooner. With vocals and music reminiscent of the band ‘Lawson’ and genres extending from alternative rock to pop – I think there is definitely a place in the industry for this 6-piece band. There are plenty of time lapse shots in the music video, but none that change […]
