FEYER SHARES HIS POWERFUL DEBUT SINGLE “I JUST DON’T KNOW” 41

While the music world seems dominated by cheesy, and in many people’s opinion, pointless pop ditties, there are some artists who want to remind music fans that there is more to the music world than tracks you can perform (perhaps slightly drunk) karaoke to. Feyer is one such artist and his debut single “I Just Don’t Know” is explosive to say the least.

With stress, anxiety and tension affecting so many of us, myself included, on what can seem like a daily basis, the track focuses intently on the hold uncertainty can have on us all. Driven by a thumping drum beat, combined with a theatre worthy vocal and impressive guitar play, I dare you not to feel energised from within after the first listen.

For many, again, myself included, music is, has been and will always be a form of therapy (full disclosure: I have ‘Music Is Therapy’ tattooed across my lower back) and Feyer himself is using the art form to not only inspire himself, but others too and for that he should be highly commended. It can be daunting to even think about opening up to those around you about what you think and feel, but Feyer’s music works as something through which people can gain strength, encouragement and much needed support. Music unites people, and this track is most certainly testament to that, so turn it up at full blast and lose yourself in a tune that reminds you, no matter what you might think, that you’ll never be truly alone.

2018 BRIT AWARDS: CRITICS’ CHOICE SHORTLIST REVEALED 18

We are extremely excited to announce that Jorja Smith, Stefflon Don and Mabel have been nominated for the 2018 BRITs Critics’ Choice award. These three outstanding talents have been whittled down from over 100 artists selected by a team of music industry experts across radio, TV, print and online.

The BRITs Critics’ Choice award has been successfully predicting and identifying the next artist to make waves in the music industry since 2008. Winners across the last ten years include Adele, Sam Smith, Ellie Goulding and last year’s winner Rag ‘n’ Bone Man, who have gone on to achieve extraordinary chart success not only in the UK, but worldwide.

Jorja Smith, a 20-year-old R&B songstress from Walsall in the West Midlands met her now manager aged 15 but it was the release of her Dizzee Rascal inspired ‘Blue Lights’ in 2016 that put her and her soulful, diverse vocals into the spotlight. She has seen her international profile rocket this year after featuring on Drake’s ‘More Life’. 

Speaking of her nomination, Jorja said: “It’s an honour to be recognised amongst such incredible emerging talent. 2017 was a very special year and there’s so much more to come from me in 2018!” 

Multitalented rapper, singer and songwriter Stefflon Don sent ripples through the music industry with her cover of Wretch 32’s ‘Six Words’ and Section Boyz’s ‘Lock Arff’ in 2015. Her ability to switch between rap, grime, dancehall patios and smooth vocals effortlessly and with confidence is perhaps why she has gathered the attention of her musical peers – collaborating with the likes of Lethal Bizzle, French Montana and Skepta. 

Speaking of her Critics’ Choice nomination, Steff said: “I am so excited to be nominated for this amazing award. A big shout out to all my fans and dons for their support. 2017 has been lit and I can’t wait for 2018! Mad love to you all”

21-year-old Mabel released her first single, ‘Know Me Better’ on Soundcloud in July 2015. It was a viral hit and was picked up by Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and Annie Mac. By October of that year she had signed a major label deal. Fast forward to 2017, and her single ‘Finders Keepers’ has been one of the breakout hits of the year, spending five weeks in the UK Top 10 and reaching almost 20 million views on YouTube.  

Speaking of her nomination, Mabel said: “Being nominated for the Critics’ Choice award really is a dream come true for me.  So much hard work has gone into getting to this point, so to be acknowledged by something like the BRIT Awards means the world.”

The 2018 Critics’ Choice Award winner will be announced on Monday 4 December, and will be the first recipient of the bespoke award designed by Sir Anish Kapoor.
