On tonight's show: Tom Bright, JW Paris and THIRD LUNG
Tom Bright @tombrightmusic
Tom Bright didn’t waste any time cracking on in 2020. In a year drenched by pandemic, he recorded live sessions for John Kennedy on Radio X, found his way onto the BBC 6 Music airwaves with praise from Guy Garvey, landed his first Spotify editorial playlists & gained 100,000+ monthly listeners, released his debut album, penned another, performed at Bleinheim Palace, wrote a book and set up Islington Radio.
He is now in the process of releasing the singles from his next LP – ‘Legacy’ – produced, once again, by the brilliant Mercury Prize-nominee Ed Harcourt (Paloma Faith, Marianne Faithfull) and mastered by Miles Showell (The Beatles, Amy Winehouse, Portishead) at Abbey Road Studios.
On 9th April, Tom releases 'How Young We Were', which will be premiered on Radio X a week ahead of its release.
JW Paris @jwparismusic
Founded by Aaron Forde (Vocals/Bass) and Danny Collins (Vocals/Guitar), JW Paris have been developing their signature sound from birth. With their respective Dads both members of the 90s EMI-signed band Choke, the pair grew up like brothers and have retained a water-tight chemistry ever since. Quickly becoming one of the capital’s most essential DIY acts, together they have gone from finding their feet at rehearsals in a 24 hour storage lock-up, to supporting the likes of The Amazons (Chris Alderton of whom has designed the artwork for “Sober”), Yonaka, Avalanche Party and The Blinders; while also selling-out shows headline shows of their own.
New single, “Sober” is just the latest in a string of rave-received recent releases including “Favourite Thing” and “Royalty”, which have seen the band earn national and international radio play from BBC 6 Music, Radio X through to SiriusXM with Chris Hawkins at 6 Music praising the band’s sound as: “where gritty meets swaggery”.
