Stian Vedoy Artist Of The Week: Rachel Jack

Rachel Jack is a talented singer and songwriter hailing from Aberdeen, Scotland and is our Artist Of The Week!

This exciting singer quit her job, sold everything she didn’t need, moved in to her parents place and went traveling. Having this space to think, freed her up to learn what it takes to be an independent musician. After a first listen, we believe her life choice truly payed off. Her debut EP (The Calgary Tapes), created while completing a Songwriting Scholarship from award winning Scottish singer Paolo Nutini, brings us stunning and heartfelt tracks in true singer/songwriter vibe.

Her second EP, currently being released, one single at the time, is taking a more experimental pop route. Her lates single, Stop, showcases a slightly “darker” instrumentation, also reflected in her vocal performance. The sound is fitting, as Rachel Jack has taken upon her self the brave act of writing a pop hit about bullying and harassment.

We’ve heard on the grape vine that she has written and recorded a lot of new music, so get excited for plenty more to come in the near future.

Stian Vedoy Artist Of The Week: Brother Sea

Brother Sea is celtic-folk band that brings together four talented musicians from different walks of life, forming what can only be described as raw and organic campfire stories exploring heritage and folklore as they gently flicker through captivating soundscapes.

Their track Circadian really stood out, taking you on a journey between sincere and beautiful innocence and bold, sweeping fun. The songwriting has parallels to that of the seasoned folk duo and Richer Unsigned friends, Bear’s Den, with added sea salt from the wind swept, rugged coast of Cornwall. The band has released an EP and a few single this far, so expect more exciting music in the future.

Stian Vedoy Artist Of The Week: Rénovations

Rénovations is an exciting, new electro-grunge trio from mainland Europe, currently based out of Edinburgh, Scotland and is our Artist Of The Week!

Rénovations has a handful of singles out at the moment, but has already formed a refined sound. Even though the trio have been working mostly remotely, they sound like they have been playing together for years. Their stadium-filling, driving grunge with electronic touches draws inspiration from Enter Shikari and has similarities to one of our Richer Unsigned favourites, Anavae.

Their brand new single, “I Feel No Pain” is a reminder that the world keeps turning and that we can learn to tune out the pandemic sometimes. Keep an ear out for new music in the future, and check out their new merch on bandcamp.

Stian Vedoy Artist Of The Week: Connie Miles

Connie Miles is a talented young singer hailing from Grimsby, UK and is our Artist Of The Week!

Connie has a handful of singles out at the moment, and while they each offer up something a bit different, they all serve to showcase her fantastic, strong voice and keen ear for melody and a hook. She’s equally adept at taking the helm of a pop-tinged dane floor-friendly number, like “Got No Love” or “Needle’s Eye” as she is baring it all in emotional ballads like “Wasted”.

In addition to her own solo efforts, she also fronts the band Revivalry, a scrappy indie rock outfit made up of upcoming young musicians we also definitely recommend checking out. Keep an ear out for new music from both in the future!

Stian Vedoy Artist Of The Week: modem.

modem. is a DIY recording project from Leeds, UK. Frustratingly (at least from a writer’s perspective) that’s about all the information available about the project, yet the lack of presence doesn’t feel like a gimmick. As you listen to the music, the somewhat monotone delivery of the lyrics become more powerful, feeling at times like some lost transmission or journal from a far away space station. Perhaps it’s no coincidence that modem.’s Instagram feed is largely centred around the early days of space exploration.

Feeling Free In The 21st Century was recorded at home last year, and while there is a decided ‘lo-fi’ flavour to some of the songs, the album really sounds incredible. There’s a pretty wide swathe of sounds across the record, from the blissed-out floating sensations on “Heartbeat In The City” to the more fuzz-edged and driving likes of  “Walking Through the Unknown” and the album’s titular track (check out the very spacey video for it below)

If you’re a fan of music that leans towards the introspective, experimental and emotional, we think you’ll really enjoy modem.!

Stian Vedoy Artist Of The Week: Red Light Acid Test

London’s Red Light Acid Test are a powerful four-piece that began showing up on the city’s stages and backroom bars in 2019, with a pummelling, gritty brand of dark alternative rock. While the heavy, angular riffs and big drums are the immediate pulls, the band does a fantastic job creating frenetic, anxious tension in both the music and lyrics the really hold you as a listener. There’s this underlying low-slung groove–equal parts Kyuss and post-punk–that permeates RLATs current offerings, acting a counterbalance to the distorted heft and keeps things interesting.

The members clearly have a pretty diverse range of influences at work. Fans of 90s ‘alt-rock’ will hear lots to like in “Elephants” with grungy, fuzz guitars leading the way while “Relapse” is bound to hook those who like it sharp and tight a la Band of Skulls and Royal Blood. If you like your rock dark, heavy and moody, Red Light Acid Test is one you’ll definitely wanna watch!

Stian Vedoy Artist of the Week: Johnny Morgan

Johnny Morgan is our first Artist Of The Week  for 2021! We felt his Americana-inflected folk sound was a great soundtrack as step trepidatiously yet hopeful into a new year. Growing up visiting the US on a regular basis, Johnny fell in love with American blues and grassroots music at a young age, allowing those influences to shape his sound as he grew as an artist.

Rather than keep things strictly stripped back as some singer/songwriters choose to, Johnny’s work features really tasteful arrangements that bolster his relatable and emotional songwriting without overpowering it. At times, his voice is vaguely reminiscent of The National’s Matt Berninger, which is a no bad thing as far as we’re concerned!

We highly recommend checking out his latest EP A Brief Introduction, an aptly titled collection of singles that act as a great intro to an artist to watch!

Stian Vedoy Artist Of The Week: Henrio

Taking the final Artist Of The Week spot of 2020 is Henrio! Originally from Barcelona, Henrio moved to Liverpool in 2017, stepping away from a label to further hone his craft as he settled into a new home. His voice is delicate and nuanced, with minimalist production and guitar work that really lets the intricacies speak.

With a keen ear you can hear influence from Jeff Buckley, Bon Iver and Damien Rice in his work, but Henrio definitely brings his own magic to his art. There’s a beautiful sense of tide-like rising and falling in “Moonglow (I Could Love You)” that creates a push-pull tension. Meanwhile, his recently released “Together” feature just enough subtle folktronica elements to elevate the song from a simple singer/songwriter number. We’re hoping to hear more beautiful music from Henrio soon!

Many thanks to all the artists that submitted their music to us this year. We know it hasn’t been easy for anyone, but being able to connect with artists and share their work with new fans has helped make things a little bit easier, and we hope it’s helped you all too!

See you next year!
