PAM TAYLOR HITS THE UK & ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM 74

Having released her first album, Hot Mess, back in 2012, Pam Taylor has had several years of critical acclaim and success, including picking up the Queen City Music Award for Best Female Rock Artist three years running, but such success has also been intertwined with some personal difficulties which have influenced her upcoming album Steal Your Heart which is set for release in the autumn.

Before then though, she’s currently on a UK tour which kicked off in Dumfries on August 12th. Speaking about playing in the UK, Pam said:

“It’s all very surreal to be sharing my music in the U.K.  This place has such a rich musical history in general and in my personal life especially. I grew up listening to Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Pet Shop Boys, The Bee Gees, Rod Stewart, The Police… I can go on..  Black Sabbath, The Beatles!! 

It’s amazing how much British music has shaped my musical influence.  More recently I was mesmerized by Amy Winehouse.  I too shared the same afflictions but luckily I survived.  Another is Adele.   I connect with her pain especially since my recent break up. Obviously, the blues was resurrected in the U.K. so of course I have a fondness for this place. Plus, my family lineage traces back to here so I feel a huge connection; almost like I’m at home. 

My tour starts in Scotland where I’m doing some festivals and charity events for Leonard Cheshire Disability down in Dumfries then I have two dates at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. I  can’t wait to be apart of the worlds largest art festival. Plus it’s celebrating 70 years so I know Its going to be one hell of a party.  After that I’m heading down to England to play a couple of dates, then over to Europe, then on to Israel for my CD release party.  I feel like I’m riding one big wave.”

RAG N BONE MAN CONFIRMED FOR 2018 BRIT AWARDS 20

We are so pleased to announce the 2017 winner of the BRITs Critics’ Choice and British Breakthrough awards Rag’n’Bone Man will be performing live at this year’s award ceremony on 21 February. He will join an already exceptional line-up which so far includes Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, Foo Fighters, Sam Smith and Stormzy.

In the last year, Rag’n’Bone Man has broken the record for fastest-selling UK male debut of the decade with his 3x Platinum No. 1 album  ‘Human’ which has sold 2.5 million copies worldwide.

Rag’n’Bone Man said: “Jheez! 2017 has flown by super quick. Its pretty mental to think that I bagged two awards at The BRITs last year and now I’m heading back to perform. I’m looking forward to being a part of the celebration with everyone. It’s going to be a good one for sure!”

BRITs Chairman & CEO and Chairman of Sony Music UK & Ireland Jason Iley said: “Rory epitomises how dreams can come true. He has had the most amazing 12 months and I’m so delighted to see him back where it all started.”

The 38th BRIT Awards will be hosted by Jack Whitehall at The O2, London and broadcast live on ITV. We can’t wait for Rag’n’Bone Man to bring his talent to the stage.

The nominations for the 2018 BRIT Awards will be revealed at ‘The BRITs Are Coming’ on Saturday 13 January. The show broadcast live on ITV will be hosted by Emma Willis and includes live performances from Clean Bandit, J Hus, Jorja Smith, Liam Payne and Paloma Faith.

FOO FIGHTERS CONFIRMED FOR BRIT AWARDS 2018 30

We are so delighted to announce that four-time BRIT winners and one of the world’s most successful bands Foo Fighters will perform on The BRITs stage for the first time on 21 February.

The international superstars will deliver one of their legendary live performances alongside performances from Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Stormzy and Dua Lipa.

Foo Fighters have sold more than 25 million records and sold out countless world tours. The band’s acclaimed ninth studio album ‘Concrete and Gold’ was their fourth to hit No.1 in the UK charts on release in September, topping the charts in more than a dozen countries.

BRITs Chairman & CEO and Chairman of Sony Music UK & Ireland Jason Iley said: “Anyone who was lucky enough to witness one of their shows on the recent sold out UK tour, or their set at Glastonbury – which was undoubtedly one of the best performances the festival has ever seen and a night that will be talked about forever – will know why Foo Fighters are the biggest and most exciting rock band in the world. Quite remarkably they have never performed at The BRITs, so I am over the moon to confirm a massive BRITs exclusive to have them grace our stage.”

With four BRIT Awards under their belt winning International Album in 2008 and International Group in 2008, 2012 and 2015 we can’t wait for Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear and Rami Jaffee to bring the incredible Foo Fighters energy to The BRITs stage.

The nominations for the 2018 BRIT Awards will be revealed at ‘The BRITs Are Coming’ on Saturday 13 January. The show broadcast live on ITV will be hosted by Emma Willis and include live performances from Clean Bandit, J Hus, Jorja Smith, Liam Payne and Paloma Faith.
