SARAH BARKER “The Real Me”

Produced and engineered by Phil Nelson

Composer of the song, Sarah, said this about it: “The song is about becoming a better, stronger person and being yourself – don’t let anybody put you down. I would describe the song style as Pop with a Rock twist!”

“My future aspirations are to become a singer and travel around the world doing what I love.”

JAMES CARSON “Last Shower Of Rain”

Produced and engineered by Danny Govan

Song writer James talked a little about the meaning behind his song: “It was written at the time of the expenses scandal and was an instant reaction to that and to the bankers, who were filling their pockets with huge bonuses, while the rest of us suffered a great deal through the recession, and still are. I’m not really politically driven, but at the time I think the shock of it affected me and I couldn’t help myself. It’s based around a folk/blues riff – like a Dylan ditty with a CCR hard edge to it. I hope the song has some staying power and will remain poignant and fresh for years to come.”

ENZO & LUISA “What Do We Do Now”

Produced and engineered by Kieran Lee

Lyricist Luisa described her influences: “The lyrics are about the atmosphere at a concert and the moments you have; dancing, crowd surfing and having a good time. I was very much influenced by my own experiences at a gig. The track has an Indie rock slant but it also has something that can’t be put into a specific style, its a style of its own creation.” Enzo, who wrote the music, told us: “The music is influenced by heavy metal but is written in a style that ties it into the Indie genre. The track brings my favourite fragments from Metal Core and Classic Rock and fuses them together to create a unique vibe.”
