Another month gone... and what a month! Our fantastic writers have been incredibly busy here's a wee summary of some high points this month!
- The big news this month was our inaugural Glasgow Writing Camp, in collaboration with SAE Institute & Scottish Music Centre. Wow. What a weekend and what an incredible group of people.The result of which was 7 top class, written, recorded & mixed tracks packaged and ready for us to pitch for major artists across the world. So thank you to John Markey, Nick Roan, Tamara Schlesinger, Vilo Spice, Gregor, Robert Carr, Scarlett Randle, Eilidh Hadden, Mark McGowan, Ciaran McEneny, Adam Howard, Hector Shaw, Ryan Sewell, Anthony Thomas, Frank Farrell, Karl Addy, Rachel Barror, Callum Ross Michael Young and Adam Hussein for making it happen!
Round 2 anyone?
- New music came from our long standing writers Les Hemstock & Christopher Jennings who co-penned 'Can't Take My Eyes Off You' out on Germany's Unit Media Music. It has since climbed into the top 40 in Germany's Dance Charts.
- There was more great news for our writers PYLOT & Scarlett Randle who were seeing their respective music added to numerous playlists including Synthpop Nights, Freshly Chilled and more! Scarlett also featured live on BBC Radio Scotland on The Afternoon Show with Janice Forsyth and stunned listeners with her original tracks sandwiched between a sensational cover of David Bowie's 'Life On Mars'.
- The Nickajack Men continued their onslaught of wowing audiences with their face meltingly good performances including dates at London's Underbelly, Ignite Glasgow & Larbert's Shuffledown Festival.
- Newly born techno project from our writer Stephen Kirkwood (Kunky) got off to a flyer with Alan Fitzpatrick dropping it in his set at the famous Subclub. In addition, a cheeky 9/10 rating in Mixmag was a lovely bit of news saying 'Oblique's vintage rave influences made this one a winner'.
- Nina Schofield's newly released track 'The Gift' featured on BBC's MotherFatherSon. Not only that, but Nina herself featured on what was a beautiful wedding scene in the BBC drama.
- There was more good news for Conleth Kane. Sold out shows, radio performances, tv performances radio interviews... who knows what's next for this talented writer who peaked at number 3 on the iTunes SingerSongwriter charts with his debut album 'Proud: Live In London'.
- There was new music from David Forbes who released an epic remix of punchy Scottish indie starts Vukovi's track 'Wired'. In addition, he dropped 'Answers' on his in house label Aria Recordings.
- Finally, Susan & Kayleigh were so pleased to be asked to join Dumfries Music Conference's Female Takeover Month. It's always a blast heading down to Dumfries and always warmly welcomed by the DMC team. It was fantastic to see a packed out room and we thoroughly enjoyed catching up with people afterwards!
That's yerrrlot! It's been another great month here at 23rd. MORE TO COME NEXT MONTH!
