New EP ‘Take Back the Power’ from fantastic young songwriter Naomi

It’s always a good sign for an artist when tastemakers at various media outlets can all agree they have what it takes, and the list of publications tipping young songwriter Naomi for stardom is endless. It’s easy to see why. With support from the likes of The Guardian, Music Week, BBC Radio, the Huffington Post, The Independent and many more, they all agree on one thing – Naomi is a real, honest to goodness talent.

It’s all thanks to a classy pop sound which takes inspiration from the soulful pop of Lorde, Adele and blends them with the pure pop accessibility of Taylor Swift. These are all huge names to be compared to, but by blending their quite different styles Naomi has a great chance of creating a stellar career all of her own.

The next stage of that journey sees the release of new EP ‘Take Back the Power’. Available on April 22nd, the EP may well mark the arrival of a future pop powerhouse.

Rachel Alice Johnson – single ‘Pieces of Me’ out now

The Edinburgh music scene has, for a long time, been home to some of the jewels of independent music who have gone on to do great things around the world. There’s must be something in the water up there, as the latest off that beautiful city’s production line is the ethereal Rachel Alice Johnson.

New single ‘Pieces of Me’, out now, is a pure pop track in the best sense. It shows that Johnson, described more as a rocker than anything else, is more than a one trick pony. There are subtle complexities at play here, making for a quietly infectious jewel of a song.
