Single/Video out now – ‘My Name in the Echo’ by C’nky Siwela – EDM

It’s a common tale among songwriters, musicians and artists that – even as they’re working to make their dreams come true – those around them will tell them it’s never going to happen. This is apparently the inspiration behind the new single from C’nky Siwela, a South African songwriter who has had his share of doubters.

Looking to share that sense of overcoming those doubters and continuing to work, the track has an upbeat feel throughout. It seems cheesy to simply say it’s a song about chasing dreams, but the fact is that is still an inspirational message.

For trying to share that, Siwela should be saluted, and it helps that the song is catchy as hell too.

Get it now on iTunes – album coming soon.

‘Little Bird’ single out now from Jess Thristan

At just 19, Jess Thristan is one of the UK’s top young female singer-songwriters, and she’s returned with new single and video ‘Little Bird’:

Sweet and catchy, it’s a beautiful new offering from a great new artist who is relying on good old fashioned songwriting to make her way as opposed to over production and skimpy swimwear. It’s refreshing to see, and marks her out as a genuine talent in a tough industry to get into.

With a live performance on Radio 2 already under her belt though, Thristan has every chance of making it to the next level – a very promising prospect indeed.
