Luke Potter Series No. 1

Interview by CA Marshall Artist: Luke Potter  SMC – Luke it’s always an honor to do an interview with you! How have things been? Catch us up to speed… Luke – Well it’s been lots of writing and recording. There are so many songs ready to go and I’m pretty psyched about them. I did get a holiday in Tenerife too, which was amazing! SMC – Let’s get right into it: your new single ‘All The Same‘ sounds like something new for you. It has a really upbeat hip hop sound – what were your influences when you wrote it? Luke – I wrote it with Marcus and Hjalmar, my great friends from Stockholm who I’d already worked with on ‘Storms’ and ‘Ready Or Not’. We composed and produced ‘All The Same’ in my little home studio in Weston-Super-Mare. It originally started off as just as a groove influenced a bit by Twenty One Pilots. We all thought it was awesome and started crafting the melody and the lyrics. I think the song is about living your life and breaking out of the everyday rules that society gives you. It’s a bit tongue in cheek too and, I hope it’ll make people smile and want to dance as there’s so much serious stuff going on in the world at the moment. We went on to write and record 3 songs during their visit and my next single, ‘Something More’ which will be out early September, is one of them. Oh […]

(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 […]

Ryan Inglis

by CA Marshall Ryan Inglis is no stranger to the plight of humanity. In fact, this Recording Artist hailing from Weston-super-Mare, England has emerged himself over the last ten years to a non profit organization called The Charlie Derrick Music Foundation, named after and honoring a young man who lost his life at only 21 years old due to a tragic car accident. ‘He was a fantastic guitar player, and he was very well known in the community,” said Inglis. It is clear that this musical connection and loss inspired the musician to spend considerable time (8 years with the foundation to be precise) raising money with the family (up to 40,000 pounds over the years!) in various fundraisers. “There are a couple of things we have done such as an organized sky dive and this year we walked 200 miles across Spain and raised 10,000 pounds which I took to Nepal to help build shelters to those who lost their homes during the earthquake and to bring music to five schools on their curriculum and building a music department which includes 20 acoustic guitars, a few keyboards, some speakers…anything that the kids need to get started in music,” said Inglis. It’s no secret that anyone who knows Starlight Music Chronicles knows that we are all about charity foundations such as Morgan’s Mission (www.morgansmission.ca), Project Cuddle (www.projectcuddle.org ), and Live 4 Tay (www.live4tay.org ) so seeing Artists we connect with supporting their local charities in the same manner truly earns our […]
