1st June 2015 Please check out our first discovery, a charming singer songwriter from Cornwall called SHANA ROSE!
25th June 2015 Brickbat Enterprises are delighted to welcome aboard and introduce you to a unique acoustic duo - please say "hello" to Leonie and Djosé who are known as... STATIC DAYS
20th July 2015 It's not often a YouTube video blows us away but AIDAN JONES has taken a classic Phil Ochs song and updated it. This performance of it is utterly outstanding. Full of real passion and anger, THIS is how you do a protest song!
31st July 2015 We are delighted to welcome on board a very interesting band called PASSION BEL CANON! They're a London based trio creating something very exciting, a unique sound they describe as "electro-flecked alt folk"
They currently have a Kickstarter campaign (which we've backed) to raise funds for recording their first EP. We cherish interesting bands like this offering something fresh, different and lively.
So, what are you waiting for? CHECK 'EM OUT!
10th August 2015 SHANA ROSE has just uploaded a new song. It's a little different in style being an upbeat little ditty. It's called "Stranger Danger" and we LOVE IT. Be warned - it's very VERY catchy! Have a listen here! Shana is also performing live at The Duke of Leeds, Leedstown on September 5th! Time yet TBC.
15th August 2015 SHANA ROSE performed live yesterday and she told us it went really well. She has a forthcoming gig on September 5th at the Duke Of Leeds in Leedstown. Time yet to be confirmed. Check out Shana's webpage and her Facebook account to keep up to date, Photo courtesy of Emily Ould.
22nd August 2015 Introducing you to c o l e t t e! She's a very interesting talent we'll hopefully be hearing more from. She's just written and recorded a great new track called "Anyone But Corbyn"
6th October 2015 We'd like to introduce you to another recent Kickstarter success story by bringing to your attention the talents of BOUCHE
They're a trio fronted by singer/double bassist Rebekah and are currently recording their first album. Their music is an interesting fusion of Jazz, Blues and Lounge with Rebekah accompanied by a guitarist and a Trumpetist. We've posted a lovely live performance they did on our media page for you to check out and if you like it, then click on the photo and visit their website.
6th October 2015 It's been a while in the making but at long last Brickbat Enterprises is delighted to welcome onboard ANNA LING!
We encountered Anna 3 or 4 months ago when she started a successful Kickstarter campaign and straight away, it was clear from her rough recordings that Anna is interesting and quirky. She's currently in India but when she returns she'll have her very first EP ready for you all to buy and enjoy... Anna gave us an exclusive preview and it's wonderful stuff.
14th October 2015 Some "general" Brickbat Enterprises related news looking ahead to the future and yes, the dreaded Christmas will soon be upon us yet again to drain our wallets - oh joy!
HOPEFULLY we will have an exclusive Christmas treat for all our visitors, artistes and followers, so stay tuned for that.
14th October 2015 PASSION BEL CANON are currently hard at work recording their debut EP thanks to their successful Kickstarter campaign and we're really looking forward to hearing what they come up with. Their debut single early this year "Land Of Hope" was very impressive and given their penchant for doing something a little different, the EP should be a treat!
In the meantime, they have a gig on Halloween (31st October) supporting MIDAS FALL at an event hosted by Symptomatic at the Sebright Arms, 31-35 Coate Street, E2 9AG Bethnal Green. Doors open at 19:30 and Passion Bel Canon play at 20:45.
23rd October 2015 We have a new review for you to check out of a newly released CD by a fascinating lady, the legendary punk singer Honey Bane. Pressed and released entirely by herself, "It's A Baneful Life" is an anthology of Honey's musical work from 1978 to the present day and the first ever such compilation which for those of us long standing diehard fans is a real treat, one that's been a long time coming.
Honey also has a new album "Acceptance Of Existence" which will be reviewed when I receive my copy very soon. However, you need to be quick - the stock is selling out so grab it while you can by clicking the album photo and ordering from Honey's own website. Hopefully for those of you unfamiliar with her, the review will help fill you in a little on Honey's curious career and great talents.
24th November 2015 HONEY BANE was surprised and delighted by my review of her anthology album "It's A Baneful Life" and I have received the CD of her new album "Acceptance of Existence" which I'm really looking forward to listening to and I will be reviewing that in due course. Again, don't wait around too long - Honey's CD's are selling fast!
STATIC DAYS have emerged from a few months of hibernation and have just updated and rebranded their website. Some new music in the works which we look forward to.
ANNA LING has completed and sent out her very own CD EP which was successfully funded thanks to her Kickstarter campaign. It's most delightful and packaged in a unique cardboard sleeve. Hopefully we'll soon have details as to how to purchase your own copy.
PASSION BEL CANON are busy at work on their Kickstarter EP. They've posted photos from the sessions on their Instagram account and it should prove to be very special when completed.
So, it's great that things are moving along for everyone and let's hope 2016 will be a great year for them.
Thanks again to everybody for their support and belief in what we do here at Brickbat Enterprises! As always... STAY TUNED!
