We really rate new singer songwriter Robert Vincent who is notching up support in all the right places at radio and beyond. With a bunch of UK tour dates coming up, a debut single out Oct 21 (‘Riot’s Cry’) and his debut album due early 2013 entitled ‘Life In Easy Steps’, sky’s the limit for this Liverpudlian gent. Oh and harking back to the title of this here post, Mr Vincent has just been nominated at The Liverpool Music Awards for the prestigious Best Male Vocalist category of which a vote from yourself would be a worthy and justified act.

Soft Bullets are a two piece, transatlantic collaboration with a predominantly alternative-indie sound but drawing too on electronica, hiphop and progressive rock. The result is that of something melodic, addicting, and timeless yet undeniably current. ‘Another Chance’ is their first video release from upcoming debut ep ‘Hyperreality’ on November 12th.
‘Moving Pictures’ is the new release from The Traps, a perfect riff, anthemic beat, a vocal as cool as a British male vocal ever sounded, and just wait for the middle 8. The track will be available as a free download via their site on November 19th but before that watch the video … do you recognise the artwork!!!
