Reggae-Rock Outfit Set for Success Far From Home

The Floating Bridges’ album ‘Creatures of Leisure’ to be released on August 28th

They may live thousands of miles from Bob Marley’s native Jamaica, but The Floating Bridges have been inspired by the legendary reggae artist to make music, and, combining the recognisable rhythms with heavy guitar, they have made it their own. The band – who describe their reggae-infused rock as “Red Hot Chili Peppers meets Bob Marley” – have already been highlighted as one to watch, having been featured on Triple J Unearthed, the one-stop shop for finding the best new music from Down Under.

Now, the five-piece are making their way to this side of the world. Dale, Dan, Jimmy, Johnny and Cale say they have been “touring constantly” since the band formed in 2009, and, come July, they will be continuing their travels when they arrive on this side of the world. To coincide with the UK tour, The Floating Bridges are releasing their much anticipated LP ‘Creatures of Leisure’.

The Floating Bridges have made a name for themselves in their native Queensland, working with local legend Brian Goodworth and receiving praise from Australian icon Jimmy Barnes when they supported him in concert. Their debut album, ‘Chasing Sunsets’, made an impact on its release in 2012, and gained the band a dedicated following. Now, ‘Creatures of Leisure ‘is set to bring further success for the dreadlock-wearing members of the band.

The album has been borne out of the band’s jammin’ sessions, and has been inspired by “good times” they have had together living on the Sunshine Coast. Lead single ‘Dreamcatcher’ allows the listener to get in to the same groove. The track features the traditional offbeat rhythms of reggae as well as the spiritual side of roots music, combined with Jimi Hendrix-style rock-n-roll guitar, which allows for an undeniably original yet authentic sound.

The Floating Bridges are touring the UK from 17th July – not be to missed!

Moxy and the Influence are the new Battles CHAMPS!

Congrats to Moxy and the Influence on winning the MuzicNotez Battles CHAMPIONSHIP! They won the rock battle to make it to the championship 2 competitions in a row now, and this time dominated to win it all. They’re fan base is incredible and the sky is the limit for this band.

Moxy and the Influence is a female fronted rock band out of California. The band was started by lead singer Moxy Anne and guitarist Sydney Ellen. They were soon joined by drummer Ignacio Barrientos and recently the bassist Shea Hamilton. They’re a high energy rock n’ roll band that also brings a positive message. For such a young band they rock well beyond their years combining an 80′s rock style with a modern edge.

The band has won numerous competitions and awards throughout the beginning of what we know will be a very long career. The track they won this competition with was ‘ALIVE’ which you can watch the official music video for below. We will also be doing a follow up interview with the group within the next month here so stay tuned for that.

Ava Lemert new album ‘Diamond in the Dirt’

Ava Lemert is a songwriter, producer, vocalist and fluent on multiple instruments. Although she’s most known as “The Singing Saxstress”, so you know she excels on the saxophone! She blends a wide arrange of genres including jazz, funk, soul and R&B together to create a sound all her own. Ava definitely isn’t your typical jazz saxophonist that you may hear in an elevator; she’s powerful, passionate and high energy on the stage.

Ava’s latest release is the 15 track album ‘Diamond in the Dirt’. The lead-off title track single is an original, it was written to encourage and uplift caregivers, parents, coaches, teachers and other people that continually give without expecting anything in return. Another notable song is ‘Un Dulce Beso Tuyo’, this song is entirely in Spanish, even though Ava doesn’t speak the language. She used Google translate to write the lyrics, and through the art of song she performs it beautifully!

Out of the 15 tracks, there are only 3 covers, of which Ava totally made her own. She tested them all live, and they have become some of her most requested songs. Ava even harmonizes with herself in a 5 part harmony in the song ‘Suavecito’. The whole album is an amazing journey from front to back. Each song completely unique in its own right, some make you want to move, some just make you want to groove!

‘Diamond in the Dirt’ was officially released on July, 18th at her release party. The release also coincided with her birthday on the 19th, which is a pretty amazing gift to us all if you ask me.

You can listen to a sampler of the album below, and you can get a limited edition (while supplies last) signed CD with exclusive content here >>
