Music & Other Stories Presents: Tonia Soulbird

Introducing Tonia Soulbird, a singer I came across last year at a gig in Hoxton. When she was on stage I fell in love with her voice immediately and wanted to follow her journey.  Growing up going to church, Tonia was surrounded by music from a very young age, and ultimately found herself singing to her friends and rapping on the school bus all the time. Yes, she even tried out being a Grime MC,...

Music & Other Stories Presents: Emiko

For this episode I linked up with a fellow West Londoner: Emiko. Only last year the singer graduated with a Law degree from University but decided that music was his true calling instead. After making this decision, he found himself at The Voice UK swiftly after where he joined Team Jennifer Hudson - performing as Ox alongside his mate Ant, together forming the duo Ant & Ox. However, this year Emiko is ready to take over...

TCO Dank – Section

Welcome to TCO Dank's Section! The London-based rapper who describes himself as an 'independent artist making music from his bedroom' has just released a new tune. Taking influence from the genre of Hip-Hop, he is yet trying to craft his very own signature sound - and it does sound very promising. Thanks to the dominant jazzy beat, his new release represents a rather vibey, laid-back summer sound which certainly comes as immensely refreshing during...

My personal ‘ones to watch’ in 2018

Without a doubt it has been a highly successful year for music - many projects have been released and even more songs have been put out there. Many shows have been organised, many new talents have been found. Personally, I had the pleasure of discovering so many outstanding artists this year - singers, rappers, creatives - it's been such a major pleasure getting to know them, their music and their vision. There were a...

Live: The Goat aka Wretch 32

So last night I headed to the O2 arena in Shepherd's Bush, not knowing that one of the best shows of my life would await me. Unfortunately I was late which means I missed Angel as a support act - I love his music so it was a bit of a shame but oh well, the best part was still to come anyway. I've seen Wretch support other artists before - Yungen and Ray BLK...

Titled Organic, the project has now finally been released last week, and I must admit: Never had I expected to listen to such an amazing masterpiece! The 6-songs long project starts off with the title song Organic which marks a...

The label, founded in 2010, stands for the above mentioned words and describes itself as a 'conscious movement with conscious clothing for the conscious individual'. The materials used are a 100% ethical, also produced in an ethical environment....
