2. Two Ways Home – Still In Love: When a male and female vocal blends harmoniously, the result can often be life-affirming. Isabella Mariee from Austria and Cotswolds lad Lewis Fowler are Two Ways Home. On March 30, 2015, the Anglo/Austrian group released their debut four track EP, WOOD FOR TREES, showcasing their country infused folk rock for the first time, followed by their second EP, BETTER DAYS, in October 2015. The band will be touring the UK in May 2016.

3. Carriageway – Natural Born Traveller: Natural Born Traveller is the title track from Carriageway’s second album. The band is a threesome of Brits who go for a mid-Atlantic sound, neither here nor there. Laid back and rolling along best describes this album opener. The song has that gentle blend of sad and feel-good, with a dash of selfmockery, which is characteristic of some of the best that country music has to offer. It’s their first country album, prompted by the inclusion of Natural Born Traveller on their previous, ON THE NIGHT BUS. For more information email:

4. The Diablos – You’re In There Somewhere: You’re In There Somewhere is the latest release from Brighton-based country band, The Diablos. The track is taken from their fourth album, ONE DEGREE OF SEPARATION, which has produced three number one songs on the Country Hotdisc Chart. The album was recorded at Le Chenac Studio in France and was released in 2015. All of the process from iTunes downloads of the track are being donated to the Dementia Friends charity which provides support for dementia sufferers and carers alike.

James McKean – I Long To Make Your Dreams Come True: Long To Make Your Dreams Come True from James McKean springs along on a comparatively jaunty folk-jazz groove, with something of the Caledonian soul of ’70s Van Morrison. The track comes backed by two new b sides: the minor key rock of Long Forgotten Winter, plus a cover of the old gospel number I Was There When It Happened, popularised by Johnny Cash in late 1950s. McKean’s New album NO PEACE FOR THE WICKED will be available on CD and download from March 27, 2016.
