It’s never too late…

Leagues is a three-man band from Nashville who, one day, decided to just drop everything and focus on music. They’re “a group of men leaving behind any preconceived notions or expectations but never their innate musicianship or love for the craft of songwriting”.

At first, the members all had music careers of their own, but no matter how much they loved it, this was clearly better and something they were certainly not expecting. They felt like it was meant to be and started “to make music they’d never quite played before but never sounded so right”.

The band’s first album, was released last January. It is filled with joyful and refreshing tunes which deserve to be heard…

The hard work has paid off…

American singer-songwriter from Tennessee Drew Holcomb and his band The Neighbours, have been playing together since 2005. His wife, Ellie Bannister Holcomb, also plays alongside him in the band and helps with the singing and songwriting. Together, they bring a succesful result, which keeps gaining more and more following over the years.

Their upcoming and sixth album ‘Good Light’, set for its release later this month, is the outcome of a new stage on Drew’s life. While the past albums were written with the help of others, this one is mostly Drew’s thoughts and personal experience, throughout which he “explores the universal need to find meaning and joy in the midst of heartbreak and disappointment”.

“With this album I’m telling my story, in the hope that it helps other people tell theirs…”

“It’s Nice To Be Alive”

Ball Park Music is an Indie Rock/Pop band from Australia formed in 2008. Their name was first given to frontman Sam Cromack’s solo work before he met with the rest of the members and started playing together.

They’ve released two albums and the following song is from their first one called ‘Happiness and Surrounding Suburbs’…

“XOXO Gossip Girl…”

First it was Chuck, then OTH and now Gossip Girl has come to an end. Monday night, the series said goodbye with no disappointment, even with some last-minute bombshells, just the way GG knows to. It was time for the show to end but after 6 seasons of gossip, drama, secrets, betrayal, tears, romance…it’s sad to let it go. It was a flawless ending to this story and it’s safe to say we feel satisfied with it.

Once again, with no doubt, Alexandra Patsavas and her staff at Chop Shop have done an outstanding job and made sure this finale had the ideal music to it. We’ve listened to their choices throughout the whole show and not once have failed.

The following songs are featured on the last episode and are just an example of the greatness on a good and powerful soundtrack, a representation of a job well done and the statement that music matters…

“They’re playing good music”

It’s time for a classic hit from the 80’s, recently used on the outstanding film ‘Perks of Being a Wallflower’, which I highly recommend.

The following single, released by English pop band Dexys Midnight Runners, won Best British single at the Brit Awards. This and ‘Geno’, became their most succesful songs, hitting number one on the UK charts…

Best part of me…

After a couple of weeks, I’m back with St Leonards, an Alternative-Rock band from Australia. With the release of their new Ep ‘World Alone’, the following song has been featured already on the new CW series, Beauty and the Beast, making quite an impression on us music listeners around the world…

Just Imagine Dragons…

They’re an Indie-Rock band from Las Vegas formed in 2008. They released their first studio album ‘Night Visions’ on September and their song ‘On top of the world’, is currently the theme song for new show ‘Partners’…

“The Mediocrity of Perfection”

The following Mexican singer-songwriter, started out in 2008 with the release of her first album ‘Mediocre’, soon nominated for many awards including the Latin Grammy Awards among them.

After such success, producers and herself, decided to make a second album which would contain ten songs from the thirty-five she wrote.

This song was the first single from the latest album…

Just to end this day…

From the band The Lumineers, another one of their great singles…
