Rocket, the lead single from JUPE offers an explosion of modern pop, ensuring its place in the UK arena this year.
Listen to Rocket Here:
JUPE deliver their sensational live show across the UK to a new and growing fanbase on their 2015 UK Tour, supporting and amplifying the whirlwind release of Rocket.
Karl, a 19-year old musician is the sole contributor to this project and it is a testament to his musical prowess and technical gifts that he has managed to craft an album of such complexity.
The Shackleton Experience transports the listener 100 years back in time, charting the journey of Shackleton to the Antarctic. You can feel the ship’s bow slicing through solid ice blocks and the crunch of boots on the snow. The complete DIY approach to the album is a testament to creator Karl’s musical prowess. Karl single-handedly researched the project, wrote the script, recorded, produced, mixed and mastered the whole album. It is this commitment to excellence that really sets The Shackleton Experience apart from other releases you will hear this year.
Listen to “Into the Weddell Sea’ here:
Expect the full length release on August 8th the 101st anniversary of Shackleton leaving England.
Electrifying single “Hey Suzy!” out on August 17th followed by incredible debut full length “Edge of Town” available from August 31st
Coffeepot Drive does themselves immense credit by creating a record that is both delicate and hard hitting. The lyricism and musicality in the record evokes emotion and pleasure in equal measure. So many personal experiences and hilarious episodes have influenced this release it’s hard not to be endeared to the group.
To say the group are experienced would be an understatement. Having toured with the likes of Status Quo, Uriah Heap, Goo Goo Dolls and even REO Speedwagon on an individual basis they have since joined together and are a force to be reckoned with. Guitarist Boanecker and Front woman Lady Oracle makes it clear that “all this was preparation for Coffeepot” and it cannot be denied that the band are ready to hit the big time.

The project’s origins came in 2013 when Kathryn received a call from New Writing North asking if she would accept an open commission to write something about Plath for the Durham Book Festival’s celebration of her life and work, commemorating the 50th Anniversary of The Bell Jar’s publication. Excited, but also somewhat intimidated by the prospect, Kathryn quickly realised that trying to write song lyrics for poems without using the actual poems or referencing them was going to be nigh on impossible, and – as time passed – what had seemed like a gift of making her own brief, turned to dread and foreboding as she desperately tried to find a way into the material.

Featuring some of the greatest soul music and vocals ever written, this exciting November night will fill Wembley with soul thanks to the spectacular, star studded ‘Voices of Soul’ event. Headed by the legendary likes of Patti LaBelle, The Whispers and Soul II Soul, the line-up of award winning stars are preparing for this once in a lifetime opportunity to bring the house down at the SSE Arena, Wembley.
UK hitmakers Soul II Soul also to star in award winning line
Supported by Smooth Radio and presented by TBH events, the show will be a must-see for fans of true soul music, and for live music fans who want to see how these innovative artists shaped the pop music landscape as we see it today.
At the very top of the bill will be multi-Grammy award winner Patti LaBelle, christened the ‘Godmother of Soul’ thanks to a five decade career that has seen 50 million albums sold. After her 16 years as the lead singer of Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles, LaBelle made the decision to go solo and had several number one hits including ‘If Only You Knew’ and ‘On My Own’, a duet with Michael McDonald. Tremendous critical success followed from Grammy Award winning albums, making her one of the icons of soul music the world over.
Also headlining are LA four piece The Whispers, whose list of 33 top ten hits and twenty Billboard charting albums stretch back to the birth of soul in the 60s. One of the most influential groups of their generation, they were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2003, and accepted by popular vote into the Soul Music Hall of Fame in 2012. Their ground breaking rise in the 60s has also been recognised by the Rhythm and Blues Foundation, who handed the group their prestigious Pioneer Award in 2008.
Meanwhile, from our very own shores, Soul II Soul first found fame in 1989 with huge UK number one ‘Back To Life (However Do You Want Me’)’, a track which also reached the top 5 in the USA and endures to this day. The band went on to win two Grammy awards, and have twice been nominated for ‘Best British Group’ at the BRIT awards, with five nominations in total.
The list of incredible talent on hand for the ‘Voices of Soul’ goes on, including:
Tickets: £50, £60, £75, £80, £100
