SMITHRADIO | FEB 2017 AOM Winner!

Scott Patterson | SMITHRADIO February 2017 By Candice Anne Marshall If any of the Starlight Music Chronicles followers on Twitter were paying attention from January 15th to 22nd, they would have noticed a flurry of activity. This was the seven-day period that will go down in our history books as the Artist of the Month fan voted competition that broke some serious records in terms of ‘fan votes’. It was the first time ever that a band (fan nominated) would achieve the highest ever votes for the social media poll posted.  In fact, SMITHRADIO fans were relentless in their pursuit of  making music history by elevating their favorite Musician, Scott Patterson and his band, to this level of   success by crushing the previous record for number of votes held by The Roxy Suicide in December 2015. Recently.

(IAM)WARFACE Series No.1

OFFICIAL Starlight Music Chronicles 2016 Artists of the Year: (IAM)WARFACE By CA Marshall (IAM)WARFACE is a British Based band who has literally stormed the Starlight Music Chronicles (SMC) scene in the last 12 months: first as our September 2015 Artist of the Month winners, and then once again winning the title as SMC’s 2016 Artist of the Year in the Adult category. What an amazing ride it has been also! Here, for the first time, we are launching their debut among many other prestigious industry peers on the Spotlight. Make no mistake, this is a band who has been truly making themselves known though their astounding visual presence (The classic ‘Warface’ make-up that lead vocalist, Matt Warneford wears for photo shoots and live shows), Exquisite vocals and instrumentation that is ‘Depeche Mode’ worthy with just a touch of Punk Rock finesse (They refer to their genre as Dirty, Avant-Garde Electro Rock), and a social media connection with their fans that is almost unheard of these days: they refuse to have anyone run their social media – fan connection is very important to them. This is where we originally connected, and it was their song and video ‘You Don’t Love Me’ which tipped the scales: they NEEDED to be in my Artist of the Month competition. I had a good feeling they would sin too! I was right, and in September 2015 they were crowned September 2015 Starlight Music Chronicles Official Artists of the Month. We collaborated on quite a few […]
