The F-List Announces New President Brix Smith!

The F-List Announces New President Brix Smith + Tools For Tackling a lack of Diversity & Inclusion within the Music Industry.

Press Release:

The F-List for Music is the first directory of its kind to feature up-to-date information on UK-based female* musicians, songwriters, and composers. We have seen an unprecedented amount of awareness-raising in the last year within the music industry on the lack of diversity and inclusion, and with the announcements of many an event and festival line-up lacking in women* featured, The F-List offers a tool to change that. 

Many events or festival organisers want to promote female artists but don’t know how or where to find them outside of their own network. The F-List solves this problem. With over five thousand professional musicians across all genres of music, and growing daily, this directory makes it easy to search for, and discover a great diversity of talent. And as more women upload their music and information onto the site it will keep growing as a resource, like a wiki for UK female musicians. It is completely free for female, trans and gender minority inclusive musicians to sign up to.  

In the last 12 months The F-List has been working with numerous festivals and event promoters in a variety of ways from sourcing female musicians and helping to curate line-ups to supporting and celebrating already female friendly line-ups including Rave to the Moon, Under The Stars, Primadonna, Brighton 7s Festival, OneFest, Tsitsit Jewish Fringe Festival, Secret Sessions Festival and OnJam online events and the website is being used as a resource for gig promoters and other musicians and journalists who wish to find female musicians. They have officially partnered with 7 music industry organisations over the year including the Association of Independent Festivals, Independent Venue Week, Skiddle, Scottish Women Inventing Music and the Grassroots Music Network with whom they have had a variety of activities and mutual support. They welcome every festival promoter and booker to utilise the platform and to be the agents of change as we shift towards a diversified and inclusive music industry. 

Last year saw the not-for-profit Community Interest Company with award-winning artist Anoushka Shankar as their inaugural President, and in 2021 The F-List is delighted to announce Brix Smith as the new President for the year ahead. Brix is committed to creating a future where gender equality is celebrated and properly represented throughout the music industry:

“The F-list is an incredible resource and a highly valuable support system for females* within in the UK music industry. At long last there exists a vehicle that collates our talents and skills across multiple facets of the music industry, connecting us, supporting us, and highlighting our assets to the wider world.

I have been a female in the music industry for 38 years, (since the age of 19) when I joined The Fall as a guitarist and songwriter. If you look at my hands you will see the scars from punching the glass ceiling. Though at times it’s been daunting, I was lucky enough to have a strong mother who told me: “You can be anything you want in this world, don’t let the fact that you are a woman stop you.”

Before me, there were only a handful of high-profile female players who I could look to as role models. There were even fewer female music executives or women in positions of power within the industry to rely on as allies or to champion the cause of inclusion. Now at last the tide is turning and it is resources like the F-List, and its creator Vick Bain, that are helping to turn it.

The time for inclusivity and diversity, in all aspects of life, is now. I am proud to be a contributor to this change.

I am thrilled to be President of The F-List for 2021/22. I will endeavour to raise as much awareness as possible while continuing to fight the good fight musically and to level the playing field once and for all.

I believe that being a woman is my superpower. So, let’s harness all our superpowers and change the landscape.” Brix Smith

With a board of 12 women from all genres of the music industry, over 70 Social Media Ambassadors, a growing list of partnerships with esteemed music industry organisations and over 5,000 female musicians already listed in the directory The F-List is not just a list, it’s a growing community that can help transform the gender statistics of music in the UK.  

The F-List is a great tool to initiate change is a key point in the journey for much change to come. 

The Vision of The F-List is…

Women, trans and gender minority inclusion musicians in the music industry will be able to more successfully start and sustain their careers in music for longer because of The F-List

The Mission of the F-List is…

Helping UK female and gender minority musicians overcome structural barriers by facilitating training and profile and professional opportunities

The F-List is for…

Female, trans and gender minority inclusive musicians, songwriters, and composers in all genres of music – Create or Claim a free Listing to promote you and your work.

Indie Rock Band CRISPR KID Announce New Single ‘Blitzkrieg’ Oct 29th

No Comments

CRISPR Kid are a Dublin based 4-piece guitar band who released their debut E.P. ‘Fresno Rescue Mission’ in December 2019 and performed blistering gigs at The Sound House, Whelan’s ‘Ones To Watch 2020’ and a headline show at Lost Lane, Dublin in late January 2020. Drawing influences from the likes of The National, REM, Death Cab for Cutie, St Vincent, Tom Petty & New Order, they deliver an epic fusion of Indie-Rock. 

They recently finished their debut album ‘Down with the Kid’ in September 2021 which is set for release in March ’22. The band are set to release indie-thumper ‘Blitzkrieg’ as the first single from this record on 29th October this year.

Home-recordists Pauric Sweeney (singer) and bassist Stephen Browne had been songwriting with Dublin producer Phil Dobie for much of 2019 and brought brilliant Brazilian drummer Romulo Passos into the fold that summer. The mercurial Gary Mackey joined on lead guitar to make up the 4-piece in August 2020 and the band began recording DWTK as an EP at Darklands Studios last November under the guidance of engineering ace, Daniel Doherty.
A purple-patch ensued and the Down with the Kid expanded into a full LP as the lockdown persisted.

It’s no accident that the band’s name alludes to the contraversial C.R.I.S.P.R. gene editing phenomenon. They decided to democratise their own genes – or mixes to be precise – by posting the recorded stems on the day of all releases for free on CrisprKid.com – thus allowing up and coming producers/engineers to attempt their own versions.

You can stream the debut single ‘Blitzkrieg’ across all major platforms: Spotify, iTunes, Tidal, etc from Oct 29th 2021.

Celtic Woman’s Megan Ruby Announces Solo Debut Single ‘Maybe’ Out Nov 5th

No Comments

Critically acclaimed classical artist Megan Ruby, of Celtic Woman, is set to show the world that she can also create the perfect Pop music in her debut music release ‘Maybe’. The 24-year-old began singing lessons at age 8 and moved on to classical training at the age of 13. Going on to graduate from the Royal Irish Academy of Music in both classical and musical theatre. At the age of 17, she won The Soloist competition with the Cross-border Orchestra of Ireland which led her to perform in venues all around Ireland and even Carnegie Hall in New York. On returning home to Ireland, Megan performed for two years with the orchestra as a soloist and featured artist in their annual Peace Proms tour.

In 2016 she was offered a scholarship to attend the Royal Academy of Music in London where she studied under Kathleen Livingston before going on to join the world-renowned group Celtic Woman where she spent 2 years touring the world in prestigious venues like Red Rocks in Colorado and the London Palladium along with the Odyssey Complex in Belfast, as well as multiple venues in Dublin: Royal Dublin Society, National Concert Hall, The Helix, Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, and the National Convention Centre. During her time in Celtic Woman, she went to Real World Studios (Peter Gabriels studio in the UK) to create their album, Ancient Land (2018).

It wasn’t until Covid came that it allowed Megan the opportunity to work on her own solo original material, something the young artist had always wanted to do.
 
I have always loved writing but never had the time to put my all into it. This past year gave me the perfect opportunity to finally do that. I started working with producer Daniel de Burke in March on my solo EP and together we’ve created something that I’m so proud of. This single is my first solo single release and I feel like this is my most authentic self.
 
Citing influences such as Adele, Olivia Rodrigo, Sara Bareilles, Jorja Smith, HER and Harry Styles, Megan showcases her stunning pop sensibility laden vocals on the new single ‘Maybe’ which is scheduled for worldwide release on Nov 5th 2021. Delving into the story behind the lyrics of her debut single Megan comments:
 

I wrote this song for my Aunty and Uncle. My uncle died very suddenly last year and because of Covid my Aunty never got to say goodbye properly. They were together for nearly 30 years and were best friends. This song is all about never truly having to say goodbye because we get to see the people we lose in our dreams. These dreams become so special as It’s a time where you can make new memories and speak to your loved ones again.

‘Maybe’ was produced by Daniel de Burke and echoes the pop sensibilities of many of Megan’s modern luminaries. The future is bright for this multi-faceted young artist.

AIS draws many of her songwriting inspirations from her experiences growing up bi-racial in a predominantly white society, where self-love and self-worth along with being true to yourself set the precipice of the lyrical narrative within her music. Musical influences come from Rhianna, Billie Eilish and Lauren Hill. ‘Freedom’ is available across all digital platforms from Oct 29th. 

Editors notes: AIS studied Music and English at Maynooth University until she graduated in 2018.

New Music Announced by Trad Folk Group Billow Wood ‘If You Come Back’ feat. Séamus Ó Flatharta Out Oct 23rd

No Comments

Billow Wood are a male/female Irish band who fuse their unique brand of instrumentation with multi-vocals and harmonies. Taking inspiration from Irish folk melodies and modern contemporary rhythms, they are creating their own unique sound. For their new single ‘If You Come Back’, they have teamed up with Séamus Ó Flatharta to create this amazing blend of old Ireland meets new Ireland.

Seamus is a gifted Sean Nos singer, and together with the rich folk sounds of Billow Wood, they have created something fresh and new. The marriage of English and Irish has created an altogether raw and rugged feel on a song that sheds light on a familiar topic, “mans relationship with the Earth”. If You Come Back was written especially for this project by the talented Niall McCabe based on Clare Island, Co. Mayo.

Working together with Billow Wood they have created a rhythm driven anthem which encapsulates the raw emotion for the struggle to keep our earth alive. The song tells us of how we have “messed up” the relationship with our environment, and make us question our ability to sustain a healthy and thriving world. “But If you come back, would we just do the same again”.

Now more than ever we are aware of the effects modern humans are having on the earth and the environment with rising temperatures and sea levels. If You Come Back was mixed and mastered by Alex Browick, and he has created an other worldly sounding production.

‘If You Come Back’ is out Oct 23rd on all digital platforms.

Eleanor McEvoy Announces The Release Of Her 16th Album ‘Gimme Some Wine’ On Oct 15th 2021

No Comments

On this, her sixteenth album, the music is both nostalgic and contemporary. Older genres of music – music hall, post-war, 50s, 60s styles are combined with fragments of Spanish, Jazz, Mexican, classical, Russian and folk music and then juxtaposed with contemporary drums, bass, or drum loops to form something that feels both entirely new and utterly familiar.

Thematically, there’s a sense of combining polar opposites. Being back in Dublin, but looking
globally. Savouring and embracing solitude, but relishing the company of friends. Reflecting on the past whilst anticipating the future. These themes are reflected throughout almost all the songs on the album.

“GIMME SOME WINE” was mostly written and recorded during lockdown – it is no surprise that the title of this album is “Gimme Some Wine”. The title track ‘Gimme Some Wine’ is dedicated to British artist Chris Gollon, Eleanor’s artistic collaborator who passed away suddenly in 2017. ‘South Anne Street’ sets the scene for a song about meeting an ex at the corner of South Anne St and Grafton St. on a Tuesday afternoon and ending up in McDaid’s Pub. It is both absolutely specific and utterly universal.

‘Scarlet Angels’ was inspired by the recent ‘A Woman’s Heart Orchestrated’ concerts with the
RTE Concert Orchestra where McEvoy, Wallis Bird and Maura O’Connell all wore red on
stage. A bit like the album as a whole, the song is a homage to the healing power of friends and music.

‘Almost Beautiful’, a co-write with (ex The Beautiful South guitarist and songwriter) Dave
Rotheray, describes the mental decline of a loved one. Rotheray is quoted as saying “We went to the pub after writing that one” ‘Found Out By Fate’ (co-written with Paul Brady) is a savage indictment on a cheating partner.

Having herself had some wine at this point, McEvoy’s own quote on this one is to “Think twice
before cheating on a songwriter”. Through this fusion of bygone and modern, established and innovative, McEvoy creates something totally fresh but with a taste of the
familiar…with, perhaps, a glass of red on the side.

Dave Sullivan Announces New Single “Started Again”.

No Comments

Dave Sullivan grew up in Killarney Co Kerry in a house where music was ever-present. His Father was in various trad and contemporary Irish cover bands so he was exposed to a wide spectrum of artists ranging from Christy Moore and the Dubliners to Kenny Rogers and Elvis from a very young age.

Dave recalls playing vinyl records on an old Sharp Hi-Fi  system which he discovered also had a microphone –

“I would set the record to play and sing along at the same time, recording my voice on the cassette section – it was my first attempt at mixing but I didn’t know it at the time.”

He began learning and playing keyboard in primary school and wrote his first “song” on keyboards around the age of 8.

“Dad would let me come up and play songs at his gigs sometimes – from then I was hooked on live music. Later Dad needed a bass player so I bought an old Fender Precision with money I had saved, learned some groves and off we went gigging in pubs around Munster.” 

Around that same time Dave started listening to bands like Nirvana, Foo fighters and Pearl Jam and formed a rock band with secondary school mates. Initially playing bass and main vocals while the other members played electric guitars and drums.

“That band gave me my first studio recording experience which blew my mind. We hooked up with a local producer and packed off to a big old studio in Cork where we laid down our tracks. We entered one of those songs in a 2fm competition, came in the top 40 in Ireland, made the local news paper and thought we were going to take over the world! The taste of the musician’s life was well and truly there.”

Over subsequent years, Dave recorded on live TV and Radio with various Bands while also working full time. Recently finding the courage to set out on his own path, this new solo music is a sonic reflection of his journey from adolescence to adulthood and the tapestry of songs woven therein tell the tales. Recorded & Produced with Cian Boylan and Conor Brady at Camden Recording Studios and Mastered by Grammy Award winner Ruadhri Cushman, Dave Sullivan’s “Better Late Than Never” EP stitches together pieces of songs started from the perspective of a twenty-year old dreaming of a career in music but completed years later by someone who has experienced a very different journey thru a 9 to 5 life far from the stage.

Says Dave of the EP:

“This EP is based on the love and anger, sadness and elation, associated with the various stages of and different perspectives within relationships both romantic and social. The songs are anchored in a solemn honesty making it easy for an audience to relate to.”

‘Started Again’ is out on Sept 17th. Across all streaming platforms.

Hannah Kathleen has just announced the Amy Lauren Remixes of ‘Missing U’, a contemporary Dance-Pop track. Influenced heavily by Mariah, Ariana and Christina, Hannah’s voice is delivers lush harmony-laden Pop sensibilities akin to the 90’s and indeed 00’s Pop divas with a modern element.

Hannah is young but already making waves, having performed not once, but twice, on Sir Richard Branson’s private island, Necker Island, in December 2018 & 2019, to guests including tennis legends Rod Laver & Martina Navratilova, as well as Sir Richard Branson himself. She has over 120,000 followers on Instagram, her word of mouth endorsement’s within the entertainment industry echoing across her social media. Following her placement as a Miss Universe Ireland finalist in 2017 & 2018, she was invited back as a featured performer at the Miss Universe Ireland Final 2019 Show, as well as the famous ‘Blondwiesn’ Oktoberfest celebrations in Munich. 

Based out of Essex in the UK, Amy Lauren is a burst onto the House & Tech House production scene in 2020; with plays on Radio 1, Kiss FM, SLAM! Insomniac Radio and many more massive stations across the world. She’s not a new name in the scene, known as both a DJ, notably having DJ’d on match day at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium, and for being on the radio; where you can catch her on Select with The Dance Show, every Friday from 12-2pm UK time.

She’s officially remixed for Scott Garcia on Closer Than Close; A tech house flip of a garage classic, the track received multiple supports from DJ S.K.T on Kiss FM and was named one of Ibiza Spotlight’s “Tunes of the Month”; As well as officially remixing for Charlotte Devaney & SHOSH, with loads more official remixes on the way throughout 2021!

Hannah and Amy teamed together on MISSING U, to fuse together a reflective romantic track with a dance/dub twist.

The lyrics are particularly relevant to couples who have been missing/are missing each other due to COVID-19 lockdowns. It reminisces on better times with the hopes for a better future. It also features a cute reference to one of the most famous (and my fav) romantic movies of recent years, “The Notebook”!
