Lady Kash

Born as Kalaivani Nagaraj, it is fitting that Lady Kash has kept her love for “Kalai” (Tamil for Arts) etched in her heartstrings when it comes to pursuing her dreams. She is from Singapore; a global sovereign city-state that is a melting pot of cultures.

Being an Aries, she is born to lead and strives to participate passionately in all that she does, whether it is songwriting, travel, fitness, reading books on quantum physics, collaborating with fellow creators or making a difference in society through various initiatives.

An example of such is Project One, a non-profit organisation created in 2011 that aims to transform our society into a more environmentally sustainable, eco-conscious and fulfilling one through uplifting and empowering projects, such as the release of the charity single “One”, which involved the collaboration of the global associations 4 Years. Go. and Pachamama Alliance.

In 2012, Project One was bestowed the Awakening Award at the Voice International Music Awards (VIMA) to honor the hard work expressed by the initiative.

 

Armed with a stylish and sleek demeanor, Lady Kash is undoubtedly a youth icon when it comes to trendsetting by simply being herself and creating waves in the industry.

Despite having no musical background, she did not turn away from seeking her true callings.

She wrote and practiced poetry at the tender age of 9, produced rap demos at 14 and went on to set the globe ablaze by collaborating with Oscar and Grammy-Winning composer A. R. Rahman for her debut in the industry at 19.

Whether it is recording in the studio or rocking it on stage at events such as A. R. Rahman’s Infinite Love and Nenje Ezhu series of concerts, Yuvan Shankar Raja’s KLIMF and Anirudh Live shows,

Lady Kash is an insuppressible feminine force. Her commitment towards putting her 100% into every project is one of the reasons why she never fails to stand out in style.

With interests embedded in not only arts but also mysticism, spirituality, sports, activism and entrepreneurship, she inspires both the young and old alike with her global approach while continuing to remain firmly grounded.

To this determined dreamer and achiever, boundaries mean nothing but the next challenge.

“I’m kinda like a nomadic paradox that loves and chooses to believe in the world while dwelling on just about anything of interest without conforming. Viewing my mistakes as lessons, I continue to grow and have learned to go with my vibes entirely. It is important to let go of the things that we cannot change and rather focus on doing the best
that we possibly can, in this present moment, while also keeping our priorities in mind.”

 

 

Believing firmly that with constant effort and unshakable affirmation, the Universe will transform her dreams into reality,

Lady Kash aspires to extend AKASHIK into the ground-breaking empire that she envisions it to become. Join her in her endeavors and stay connected to be the first to learn of new happenings and much more.

“This is just the beginning. The adventure continues.”

Sugarspun, Gear Up to Release Debut Single, Spaceman Dreams

Astronaughty But Nice! Indie Heroes, Sugarspun, Gear Up to Release Debut Single, Spaceman Dreams – Single (Release date April 6 2018)

Word of mouth counts for a lot and this is certainly the case with Sugarspun. Despite no releases other than a handful of Soundcloud demos, they have forged an army of fans from coast to coast who have bombarded them with requests for more tracks and who have turned up en-masse to sell out venues they have played.

Having developed from a two-piece acoustic outfit to a full-on 5-strong indie juggernaut, they capture the triumphant euphoria of prime Stone Roses and the classic 60’s song-writing chops of The Faces and early 90’s acts like The La’s.

Formed in the unlikely rock n roll hotbed of Carlisle in Cumbria, Sugarspun started out as an acoustic duo, comprising vocalist Jamie and Steven (guitar), though rave reviews emanating from their BBC Introducing plays and feverish fan support at their live shows caused the pair to revise their plans and expand to a much larger vision in all senses.

Having recruited the members who now complete their line-up – Michael (rhythm guitar); Luke (bass) and Andy (drums) – from their local music scene, they moved away from acoustic tracks and bedroom demos to their first studio-recorded work: “Spaceman Dreams” and “Hide”.

“Spaceman Dreams” is the antithesis of the trend of gloomy introspection and negativity, with hooks flying around like hand grenades and the chorus racing in at speeds Virgin Trains can only dream of.

With a message to never give up on your dreams, however distant they may seem, this is the perfect launchpad for a band who remind you how 90’s indie changed the musical landscape by combining musical talent with optimism, irreverence and fun.

Artist: Sugarspun

Ivan Beecroft

Ivan has struggled to transcend the limitations of his working class background. As a steel worker in a dying industry he was often appalled by the blatantly unsafe conditions he and his colleagues were expected to work under. The memory of a workmate screaming in pain after having his hand caught in a faulty machine is just one that has contributed to Ivan’s social conscience. The challenges of finding and keeping safe, ongoing employment have given him empathy with those who are displaced or disadvantaged in modern society.

Coping with the day-to-day reality of his working life led Ivan to turn to music as a form of solace. The song Miss You exemplifies this, it was inspired by the death of his father and dedicated to his mother and sister.

His workplace experiences are also reflected in his music. The lyrics can be angry and political and some are quite dark, while the simple melodies and upbeat rhythms belie the nasty, cynical element. However the mood is not all anger and melancholy – Ivan’s marriage to his teenage sweetheart has inspired some happier, more loving songs. Her efforts to find purpose, as well as Ivan’s own, have also been the catalyst for several more philosophical offerings.

Ivan’s musical journey was almost derailed when his bass player and long-time friend attempted to defend a neighbor from a random drug-fuelled attack. He was hospitalized, was in a coma for a month, almost lost sight in one eye and was left partially deaf. This rendered him unable to continue playing bass. Ivan was so traumatized that he turned his back on music altogether – until his wife bought him a new guitar for his birthday almost two years later, prompting him to start writing songs and playing again.

Ivan has always been a versatile musician. He started out playing the flute, then successively played saxophone, drums, and guitar in various bands, gigging extensively. He then moved into writing and recording original material. As a result of being dissatisfied with the music production that he could afford, and inspired by the independent Do-It-Yourself ethos of underground 70s UK bands such as Sex Pistols, Joy Division and The Clash, he learned how to record, mix, master and produce his own music. This gave him much more creative freedom.

His distinctive baritone voice is influenced by the deep vocals of Jim Morrison and Eddie Vedder, while his music shows evidence of the influence of his parents’ record collection – Glenn Miller Band, Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley, Duane Eddy, Neil Diamond, The Beatles – as well as Ivan’s own collection: David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, The Church, Soundgarden, Paul Kelly, INXS, Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, Icehouse. Ivan’s music can be described as retro rock / 90s grunge pop.

Shane Martin

“Keepin’ The Night Alive” is Shane Martin’s 4th album release along with 2 EP’s. The album is book ended with two solid high energy country rock anthems. “Keepin’ The Night Alive” and Nobody’s Getting’ Outa Here Alive”. In between Martin takes the listener on a musical ride with the infectious heavy groove of She’s Got Swagger, the melodic “Goodbye Never”, to a salute to small town America with “American Dream”. The latest single “Hankerin and Jonesin” is a power waltz love song tipping the country hat to Hank Williams and George Jones while the soaring melody of “Passenger Seat” reflects on something bigger than you guiding life’s journey.

“The great things about the one man band option are the uniqueness of it, and the opportunity it allows for intimacy with the crowd,” says Martin, who estimates he plays 60% of his shows this way. “The set list is also more open, so people can request the songs they like. I also have fun playing in and out of tunes and twisting them up. The coolest thing is when people come up to me during the break and say when they came in, they thought a four piece band was playing. They didn’t realize I was just one person up there. But I also love playing with my band because I’m able to move around with my guitars onstage and be more energetic. I’m able to focus a lot on my showmanship.

“Whether I’m jamming with my band or presenting the music in this unique solo setting, I truly enjoy singing, performing, entertaining crowds and connecting with an audience,” he adds. “Connecting with people is what songs and live music are all about. There’s nothing like the feeling of watching as a crowd sings along to your songs. There’s an infectious energy that pours from the stage to the audience and back to the stage again. Music is in my heart and soul and I honestly love sharing it.”

The title of Shane Martin’s latest album “Keepin’ The Night Alive” sums up how he keeps his music alive and loves what he does: “Livin’ every moment, hangin’ on for life” and play his powerhouse brand of country rock. . A Top 5 Finalist in the 2012 Texaco Country Showdown where he competed for “Best New Act in Country Music” at Nashville’s legendary Ryman Auditorium (hosted by LeAnn Rimes), the Minnesota based singer/songwriter is now up to a breakneck pace of 175 regional shows per year.

Fronting his full ensemble, Martin has performed at some of the top country music festivals in the country and shared the stage with everyone from Ronnie Dunn, Joe Nichols and Jerrod Niemann to David Nail, Josh Thompson, Easton Corbin, Greg Bates and Black Hawk. But with his amazing longtime rep as the “One Man Band,” he’s also a powerhouse performer on his own. Performing acoustic guitar driven versions of his eclectic mix of country/rock/pop tunes, high octane rockers and soulful ballads, he uses his feet to play bass pedals and tambourine. In recent years, he’s also added a loop pedal to add extra rhythm via an additional acoustic guitar line. He also plays harmonica and auxiliary bongos – with nothing pre-recorded!

Currently one of the top live draws throughout the Midwest, his modern country rock vibe is perfectly described by his longtime producer and now co-writer, Emmy Award wining engineer/producer Kenny Royster: “Shane is a great singer/songwriter on the teetering edge of country, pop and rock where it’s just dangerous enough to be fun!”

Martin and his band have shared the stage with Eli Young Band, Ronnie Dunn, Ronnie Milsap, Josh Thompson, Easton Corbin, Joe Nichols and many more.

In 2004, Lennon moved to the United Kingdom where he toured and received radio play on several local radio stations.

The Ohio Weather Band

The Ohio Weather Band formed in a small town in Ohio­ before the members even realized it. Corey King (guitar/vocals), Derek Strata (bass/vocals) and Ray Lumpp (percussion/vocals) were friends long before bandmates.

Corey had written songs for a solo EP (“Ohio Weather”) and asked his friends Derek and Ray to perform on the record as bass player and drummer, respectively.

At that point, the band was established. In 2014, The Ohio Weather Band released their self­-titled, debut album.

 

 

Most of the album was recorded by the group, though they managed to salvage a few guitar and drum tracks from previous recording sessions. The album was produced, mixed and packaged solely by the band.

This served as a local and regional launching pad for OWB: local magazines and newspapers supported the album and honored it as one of the best area albums in Cleveland, OH and Canton, OH. Shortly afterwards, The Ohio Weather Band went on a self-­booked three week tour around the Midwest and Eastern US.

“Crooked Light” is the sophomore release by The Ohio Weather Band.

The album was, again, self­-recorded in various locations including a garage loft and the basement of a house in Akron, Ohio, in which the members currently live.

Unlike the group’s last, self-­titled album, “Crooked Light” was not completely an in-­house project. Spencer Martin joined the team to co-­produce and co­-mix the album.

The result is an album with a fresh sonic perspective and evolved songwriting. Lyrically, the album projects the thoughts and experiences from skewed perspectives.

Regarding the songs, Corey says, “It seems like there are simple, obvious meanings to the songs, but there’s something bigger behind it.”

The Ohio Weather Band is excited that their new  “Don’t Try” EP is set to release in spring 2018.
