Little Crow

by CA Marshall Photos Courtesy: Little Crow Being that this is a feature article/interview featuring a brand new indie band on our Starlight Music Chronicles (SMC) Spotlight, it was important to ensure that this would be a band that could come in with a bang and leave a lasting impression. That band is Vancouver based ‘Little Crow’, an Alternative Rock duo comprised of Lead vocalist Emily Seal and her partner Kas Baker. I recently had the opportunity of hearing their song ‘Devil In Disguise’ which launched October 6th 2016 to iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Bandcamp and YouTube and I knew immediately we needed to ‘Spotlight’ this dynamic team. The song is an anguish-y love ballad drenched with Seal’s soft, lilting vocals combined with supporting instrumentation that lends power and depth. This is a band whose initial impact in the music community will (and has already) resurrect a personal connection to it’s listeners through it’s haunting and romantic vibe. This is a team whose presentation from first conception earlier this year to final presentation evokes every emotion possible and I believe, is just the tip of the iceberg of what’s to come. Here is our exclusive interview with the band: Interview ‘Little Crow’ – October 10th, 2016 SMC – Hello Little Crow! Welcome to the Starlight Music Chronicles (SMC) Spotlight. We are very excited to be hosting you on our Spotlight! Can you please let us know a little bit about your background and how ‘Little Crow’ came to be? KB […]

Recently, in reviewing (Starlight Music Chronicles fave) British Recording Artist Jake Bugg’s newest album ‘On My One’, I felt it necessary to also do some background research behind the brilliant imagery on the album artwork. This is where I discovered fellow Brit Nathan Pendlebury’s treasure cove of dynamic abstract art with an impressive timeline of attendances at art exhibitions and career achievements throughout the United Kingdom dating back to 1992. Giant bursts of complimentary brilliant colors and pleasant shapes complete this Artist’s immaculate website and resonate with my own inner Artist and desire to create. I felt inspired and compelled to find him and was overjoyed when I was able to locate and connect with Nathan on Facebook who (to my delight) was rather receptive to an interview for our Spotlight. As Editor of the website and magazine, I felt it was important to introduce someone entirely unique and dynamic as another component to the SMC website’s fine Artist sector, and Nathan Pendlebury is just that individual. Here is my recent interview with Nathan where we discussed his tenure as one of Britain’s most unique Artists, being contracted out by Jake Bugg, his muse, and his favorite project to date:     -Interview- September 27th, 2016 Artist: Nathan Pendlebury SMC – Hello Nathan!
