Enchanting indie-folk single ‘Summer Night On Fairytale Land’ from Pedro Syrah

Singer-songwriter and gifted guitarist Pedro Syrah prepares for the release of his new album Fairytale Land with this intimate new track ‘Summer Night On Fairytale Land’.

The Portugal-born artist has already played in esteemed Lisbon venues such as the mighty Aula Magna and now hopes to take his fresh and exciting sound to the rest of the world!

Watch the video for ‘Summer Night on Fairytale Land’ here: 

A creative guitarist, he draws a lot of influence from classical music, also playing with unconventional tunings to form a unique sound that is entirely his own.

His upcoming album is set to centre around a variety of personal themes including love stories, the loss of friends and a roadtrip he took in California. Pedro has described his sound as ‘an immersive experience into ourselves and our feelings’.

With recording set to take place in Abbey Road studio with Sean Magee, Fairytale Land is sure to take this sound to new levels.

Pedro’s music is likely to appeal to fans of indie-folk artists including Ben Howard, Damien Rice, The National and Jamie Cullum.

Super Talented Teen Shane Thomas Due to Release New Single Mrs Matisse 10th December

SHANE THOMAS01

 

Okay so this little talent isn’t strictly relevant to guitars, but we’re just too impressed with the guy to miss the opportunity to shout about him!

Formerly dubbed ‘Britain’s Mozart’, Shane Thomas is quite possibly the most talented teenager across the British music industry.

New single, ‘Mrs Matisee’ is to be released 10th December, prior to the release of his debut album, ‘From Me To You’, due for release soon after.

‘Mrs Matisee’ showcases Shane’s incredible talent and beautifully demonstrates the amazing capabilities of this young composer. The tack in undeniably stunning and transpires audiences into the fascinating world of Shane Thomas.

Shane was inspired to write the track earlier this year when he saw a painting by Henri Matisse. He was so taken with the beauty of the painting that he decided to compose a piece of music about it. Shortly after writing the track Shane discovered that Debussy had been inspired by the very same painting and produced a well known piece of music called, Arabesque.

Shane began playing the piano at the tender age of seven and has since taken on the challenge of mastering the art of the cello and percussion.  Shane dreams up all of his music. He has never sat at a piano to compose anything. He does it all in his head, then later sits to play the piece. He can immediately play any melody or song he hears.

Aged ten, Shane was the youngest person in history to be signed to a music publisher, E.M.I. music.

Peter Andre, Jamie Cullum, Bradley Walsh and Jason Mansford are all fans of the child star.
