New Free Tryumf Single Ahead of Landmark Debut Concert

It’s kind of surprising to think that Dwayne Shorter (better known to the world as Tryumf) puts on only his very first headlining concert on November 18th 2011. His influence on the UK gospel Hip-hop scene in recent years certainly can’t be overstated, and he’s also without doubt one of the scene’s most respected international ambassadors. The buildup to what promises to be an incredible … Continue reading New Free Tryumf Single Ahead of Landmark Debut Concert

Music update – ‘The Essential UK Gospel Tracklist’

The Essential UK Gospel Tracklist – March 2011

2011: third month in, and things have been off to a cracking start right here in the UK.

I can barely keep up with the pace of new music announcements.  Under many other circumstances, that could be a bad thing.   In this case, it’s the rather delicious, delightful opposite.

If you’re after up-to-the-second news updates, links and reports then you have to follow me on Twitter.

That’s where I publish all the hot news as soon as I get it – long before it makes the main site or this blog (that is if it even ever gets here…)

How To: Stream Music – Legally

I wrote this well over a year ago, and never got round to publishing it.

Well, better late than never. 🙂

You should already be familiar with the information here (it IS a year old, after all), but I’m running it just in case.

This blog actually follows on from Henry Yanney’s blog  post about getting radio for your week.


Back then I thought I’d point you in the direction of music sites that will make your time on the web infinitely more enjoyable: the superb services delivered by Spotify and we7.

Benefit to the independent artist

Both these services share revenue with labels and aggregators (good news for independent artists as they can get in on the act too. Example: Guvna B and LZ7 on we7, Victizzle on we7, and Jay Ess on we7).

That means the service can legally stream the music for ‘free’, in the hope that they can make their money back, potentially through advertising.

Business insiders suggest advertising revenue alone cannot sustain the business model for long, but we’ll have to wait and see on that.

Getting the music you want – in high quality Continue reading “How To: Stream Music – Legally”
