CHEZ KANE
Released – 12th March 2021

A talented, young vocalist who fronts, with her two sisters, the UK melodic rock band Kane’d, Chez Kane was brought to the attention of the label after conversations with Danny Rexon of Crazy Lixx about the possibility of him scouting and producing some exciting new talent. Subsequently, Danny started working on some demos with Chez and the label did not pass up the opportunity to collaborate on this solo album as a songwriter and producer, that also happened to mastered by one Erik Mårtensson from Swedish AOR monsters, Eclipse.

THUNDER
All The Right Noises
Released – March 12th 2021

Thunder may be the band who will just never give up – having been a fan from the earliest Terraplane days, and having been lucky enough to be present at the 10th Anniversary “farewell” tour in 1999, and the 20 Years & Out show at Hammersmith Odeon in 2009 (despite moving to Australia in 1998) and even getting to shoot the sold-out Hammersmith show in March 2015, we felt thrilled to get the band to Australia in 2017 for some intimate, but very raucous club shows.

JIM KIRKPATRICK
Ballad of A Prodigal Son

With the release of their single Georgiana, the Tennessee quartet Naked Gypsy Queens stake their claim as one of the new heavyweights of rock & roll’s modern-day renaissance. Rooted in amplified blues, hard-charging grooves, and dual lead guitars, the band builds upon the larger-than-life sound of their heroes from the 1960s and ’70s, keeping the flame burning for old-school hard rock while using their own 21st century fuel. Having just been signed to Mascot Records, the band’s forthcoming EP is slated for release in late 2021.
