The great 'Unsigned / up and coming bands free music' Hunt



  • check out Caroline England her music is beautiful and the lyrics are really clever and heartwarming.

    You can also listen to her on MySpace

    I've copied and posted some quotes from her website...

    "A compelling stage presence, with a haunting voice...intimate, personal lyrics which move the heart and sear the soul...a flame-haired dynamo with a voice to send shivers down the spine...the North West's best kept secret"

    - Carol Davis writes for The Daily Mail

    "Caroline puts the GGGRRR in Eng-er-land"

    - Liza Booth Radio 1

    "With Caroline's songs you don't know which way it's going to take you- but you do know it'll be somewhere beautiful"

    - Nick Ravenscroft BBC News 24

    "The most outstanding and promising songwriter in the area"

    - BBC Radio Merseyside

    "You can't help but thrill to the purity of her voice; some of her songs are dreamily atmopsheric, the grittily painful lyrics of others have a bittersweet twist"

    - Louise Tickle freelance journalist

    Discovering Caroline England can leave discerning music fans with a dilemma. Along comes a supreme feeling of smugness when you discover such a prolific singer songwriter with a voice unlike any other. Compared to Norah Jones crossed with Alanis Morisette, this year is a promising time for Caroline as she plays gigs up and down the country promoting her newly released EP Comforting Words. Do you keep your precious secret to yourself or share her with your friends? Go on, giving feels good, and they will undoubtedly love you for it. Liverpool celebrates Capital of Culture in 2008 and Caroline has been chosen by the BBC as "One to Watch" an accolade she is determined to justify. The EP is out now on iTunes and from the link below and her debut album is released in June.
  • Band Name: Thinking For Tuesday
    Music Style: Rock
    What style of music/who is it similar to?: All original stuff but if you had to describe it it would be "melodic rock with heavy leanings"

    These guys are awesome live, really talented musicians and not totally up their own A@&es which makes a pleasant change! They also have all their music fully downloadable for free, they do it for the love of music. Have a listen and see what you think!
