Listen to “Beefy” talk to Ross about Aberdeen band, The Lorelei
The Lorelei formed in 1990 in a garage in Dyce with Jonny and Beefy being original members along with Martin Watson, the original singer. Over the next 2 years The Lorelei settled on a line up which apart from John.S.Martin, The Lorelei’s new frontman, remains to this day.
After constant touring and living in a yellow transit van together for too many years, The Lorelei split….Until now!

Listen to Des Horsfall talk about his Good Gentleman’s Tonic album with Ross
“First pass through ‘The Good Gentleman’s Tonic’ made me grin like a fool, put a tear in my eye and even made the hair stand up on my arms. Nothing has touched my heart like this album. What was needed wasn’t someone who did a good imitation of Ronnie Lane, or was handy with a resonator- it’s the soul, the vibe, the spirit of the little bugger…and Des Horsfall has nailed it completely in this bunch of songs”.

Kyle Carey talks to Ross about her debut album, Monongah.
The ingredients of Kyle Carey’s music include the songs of the American Folk Anthology, the Appalachian poetry of Louise McNeill, and weekends spent working at Caffe Lena (in Saratoga Springs, NY) and listening to the best musicians in contemporary folk. The results are well described by Bill Fox of Skidmore College: “Kyle’s songs are ‘classic’ in the best sense of the word. None of the immature ‘reading from a diary’ silliness of so many singer-songwriters, but rather perspective—subtle expressions of human experience from a variety of perspectives.”
