Interview with Symmetry

4th May 2015 | Music

Symmetry are the hottest new progressive pop/rock band to hit the UK. The band consists of Michael Campbell (vocals), Jared Hara (guitar), Will Weiner (bass) and Max D'Anda (drums). These four accomplished and determined musicians fatefully met each other in California and aim to inspire hope through their powerful music.

Having travelled here from Los Angeles in mid-February to support Room 94, they were quickly snapped up to support McBusted on their giant M.E.A.T Arena Tour before being whirled onto their very own headline tour and in a few weeks they'll be off supporting James Arthur on tour as well!

James Gilmore had the opportunity to speak to the band for the SECOND TIME (first time was before they toured with Room 94) about what the crazy adventure has been like so far...

James Gilmore: It is my pleasure to be joined by Mike from Symmetry! How are you?

Mike Campbell: I’m doing well!

James Gilmore: We spoke not too long ago, just before you started supporting Room 94. It’s been a whirlwind of a journey for you guys since then….

Mike Campbell: I’d agree with that, yes! That’s a good way to describe it actually, we’ve just been non-stop touring. We’ve been here since mid-February and it’s been non-stop, we’re still going right now.

James Gilmore: When I first spoke to you, you’d just announced that you were going to support McBusted on their giant arena tour. What was that like?

Mike Campbell: Oh my gosh! We keep saying this, but it’s the absolute truth: It was a dream come true. We’re playing some of the biggest venues in the country. I had to adjust my performance because I’ve never performed to that many people – rooms filled with thousands of…

Urban Artist of the Week: Bryson Tiller

3rd May 2015 | Music

This weeks Urban Artist of the Week is Bryson Tiller, so we thought to tell you a little bit more about him.

Hailing from Louisville, Kentucky, Bryson Tiller started singing and rapping at the age of 15 before he eventually began writing and recording his own music. When he left school, he worked a full-time job at Papa Johns, doing music part-time straight from his living room. Now, when he isn't recording, he's either chilling on Google hangouts or watching "Full House" on Nick at Nite - at the force of his daughter.

Bryson Tiller is the newest signing to legendary music mogul Timbaland's record label (alongside rising Chicago rapper Tink). He was announced as the latest signing via a Google hangout session. It's likely that Tiller will make it mainstream this year, following recent trends of R&B dominating the charts and rumours of a collaboration with Timbaland himself.

Tiller doesn't base his sound on a particular genre - he has enough original elements within his music to make for an intriguing listen. If you ask him though, he calls his music "TrapSoul". Whatever his genre is though, it seems to be working - a million listens on his SoundCloud page speaks volumes this early in his career.
