Live Performance

New York musician Noah Chenfeld, whose music we have shared here before, has returned with a brand new song entitled “Stuck on a Page,” which was produced by Vlad Holiday.

It’s a smart and contemplative ballad that Chenfeld performed live during a show a City Winery, and today we have the honor premiering both the video of this live performance as well as the song itself.

Chenfeld lives it all on the floor on the sincere “Stuck on a Page,” showing off a dynamic range that marks him as a young artist with a voice worth listening to. He has proven to us that he can rock out but also turn things down a notch and offer something more vulnerable and personal, which proves to us he’s an artist worth gravitating towards.

Find his live performance at City Winery posted below, as well as the official stream of “Stuck on a Page” posted right below.

British singer-songwriter Chloe Foy is finishing up her current tour in the UK, with a few days of shows left remaining. The talented musician has recently returned with a lovely brand new single with “Oh You Are Not Well,” which further showcases her talent as a pure and true songwriting talent.

“Oh You Are Not Well” immediately strikes you with her passionate vocals and intricate delivery and well-crafted lyrics. It’s a track that soars and soars to new heights with every step of the way.

Then there’s her pretty cover of Mazzy Star’s “Fade Into You,” a song that is certainly not in shortage of covers. This is a faithful cover that she still adds enough of her own mix to make it a worthy addition to the collection of covers.

Enjoy both “Oh You Are Not Well” and her take of “Fade Into You” below.

By Will Oliver, September 12th 2018

Arctic Monkeys are hard at work touring in support of Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino but a recent stop in New York brought them to Electric Lady Studios where they laid down two recordings as a part of the Spotify Singles series.

One was a live version of single “Four Out Of Five,” and the other was a cover of the Stephen Fretwell song “-” taken from his 2004 album Magpie and performed solo by Turner. Fretwell also played bass for The Last Shadow Puppets live during the The Age of the Understatement era.

“-” definitely fits the headspace and mood of the new era and it can be streamed below along with the live performance of “Four Out Of Five.”

Tash Sultana – “Harvest Love”

By Will Oliver, August 9th 2018

Australian multi-instrumentalist Tash Sultana caught my attention in a big way during her set at Governors Ball back in June.

She’s set to release her debut album Flow State on August 31 and “Harvest Love” is a breathtaking offering from the track to give you an idea of the variety and range that Sultana can offer on a single track. Based on her live performance at Governors Ball, she’s truly a unique talent that has a bright future ahead of her.

If you don’t believe me, find out for yourself and take a listen to “Harvest Love” below and stay tuned for more on Sultana very soon.
