Liverpool: synonymous with the British Invasion adds Terry Shaugnessy, who's single 'Volcano' is gaining worldwide attention and global airplay, to the list with a voice and songwriting skills akin to Neil Finn and Ryan Adams, he could be next.

"Song is King" is how singer songwriter Terry Shaughnessy describes the process of songwriting, "You have to be a slave to the song", this practice is 100% present on new single 'Volcano'.
 
A souring riff opens the track, melting into an uplifting melody that has you instantly hooked. It's an angst-ridden tale of the pressures of modern life, the restrictions that day to day routine put on the soul, which can then lead to creating fractured relationships. His influences include Ryan Adams, Dave Grohl and Neil Young and you can hear each of those artists tightly knit into this single.

After catching the eye of Death In Vegas' Tim Holmes, Terry started working tirelessly on a collection of songs in the studio, of which 'Volcano' is his first release. 

Hailing from Liverpool the art of songwriting is engrained in Terry's DNA . He grew up completely surrounded by music  from an early age, Shaughnessy decided to take the next logical step and write songs in earnest, taking them out on the road, in the beginning  just his acoustic guitar as backing.


 
His live shows are majestic, his songs take on a new lease of life and he's already had the honour to play with the late, great legends Ian McLagan and Joe Strummer, he's also shared the stage with Ocean Colour Scene and Trio Valore.
 
After playing at some huge festivals including Oxygen Festival, T in the Park, Glastonbury and Fest n Mind in France, he now has shows in the States and more releases on the horizon for early next year, meaning the next 12 months are looking bright for Terry Shaughnessy.

Valcano drops September 29, 2017, on Griffiths Records.

Garage Band Black Pudding Drops Loner Noise 6 October 2017

Black Pudding are a Garage Rock band with a twisted sense of humour. Born from the ashes of Leeds noiseniks 'Stilts', they filter their righteous and get through a seductive veneer, with a knowing wink and a Punk sneer. With a touch of the Ty Segall/Thee Oh Sees thickness to their riffs, The Wytches' foreboding gloom and The Cramps' weirdness, they have everything a growing boy needs.

Sam Curran - guitar, vocals

Shane Standrill - bass, guitar

Jake Sainty - drums

"Cast Of Characters," From Skellums, Drops September 15

Skellums were formed because there was nothing else left to do. Skellums DO NOT want to join the long list of bands who have success, but have nothing to say. Skellums fell together through necessity, tired of the music industry, they set up their own record label, Rent & Debt Records,
and decided to take on the world. One little venue at a time.

Underneath all the dirty guitars and pounding drums, there lives a pop song. Skellums believe, that as long as you have a decent melody, you can get away with all manner of noise.

Pop songs with dignity. In a world where every band has the same barber, and shares the same River Island gift card, Skellums are a little different. They may be a little rough around the edges, a little bit pissed off and a little bit scruffy, but they have something to say.

Soon, they will be playing at Sir Bob's benefit shows, pretending that music is the answer to all of the world’s problems. Soon, they will father children with super trendy names, like 'Apple','Air Max' and 'Mondeo'.

S K E L L U M S …. they are coming.
