Each week on her radio show, Meagan introduces her listeners to a new band she’s really into right now. This week it's The Paperweights
Each week on her radio show, Meagan introduces her listeners to a new band she’s really into right now. And then she writes it up and pops it online. Here is that write up for this week.
This is a special one... Meagan has grown up with singer/songwriter Taylor Day and drummer John Parrot since she was 12 years old.
The duo, who go by the name ‘The Paperweights’ have been making music together for a decade; they decided in early 2017 to share it with the world. Having played gigs all around Columbus, Ohio they dropped their debut self-titled EP this month.
With memories of watching them performing during the Battle of the Bands and seeing music of them playing music together when they were younger (covers of tracks by the likes of Frank Sinatra and The Beatles, as well as The Weeknd), the…
Talking of obvious news headlines... Alec asks listeners for the reasons they too are terrible people
An amnesty for acts of random unkindness.
Alec Feldman tries to be a nice person – we all do. But sometimes, we just can’t help ourselves. We do something bad to another person, but we just don’t feel any guilt whatsoever. This is the safe space to share those stories.
Alec’s Geordie flatmate was a bit... “tired and emotional” one night, and she fell over into their Christmas tree and destroyed it, sustaining minor injuries. Whilst any decent person would ask after her wellbeing, Alec... well, he laughed. Then he asked you for your “I’m a terrible human being, but...” stories.
Listen below, and if you have your own act of random kindness you want to admit to, email email@example.com, with “I’m a terrible human being, but...” in the subject line – it might get read out on air in a future week!
James Gilmore interviews Metrik-collaborator, Justin Bieber support act and general lovely person Rothwell
Bristol-born Rothwell supported Justin Bieber for one night on the UK-leg of the Purpose Tour in 2016 – and then the next night, she was back in the studio, working hard on new music.
What’s obvious about Rothwell after speaking to her for even just a short period of time is how serious she is about music, without taking herself too seriously.
The energetic and uplifting singer-songwriter, behind tracks such as ‘Busy’ and collaboration with Metrik, ‘We Got It, cites artists such as Ben Howard, Nina Simone, Paul Simon, Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift has her inspirations. A varied mix – but it all makes sense after listening to her music, which blends soulful tones with pop ballads.
Ahead of the release of her new single ‘Freedom’, James Gilmore interviewed Rothwell about the new music, her career highlights since the last time they spoke and…
James Gilmore interviews one of his favourite live performers, Stu Larsen, about his new record 'Resolute'.
There are very few performers like Stu Larsen.
The Australian singer-songwriter has had hits with the likes of ‘Thirteen Sad Farewells’ (16M streams) and ‘San Francisco’ (3M streams) – but his real heart is in performing live, in front of intimate adoring fans.
His latest collection, 2017’s ‘Resolute’, has led him to touring the world once again – with a tour leading him to 26 countries across the UK, Europe and Scandinavia and clocking up millions more streams. The album is the follow-up to ‘Vagabond’, where our paths first crossed.
