Urging us to lift our voices loud and proud to help all the lost souls, The Marsh Family sing with so much pure emotion and care on the hopeful reminder we all needed to hear on In the Bleak.

The family of six, from Kent in the UK, are versatile, earthy, and independent – putting their own unique twist on genres from musicals and folk to Motown and funk. Dubbed the “Von Trapped” family by the New York Times, they raised millions of spirits and smiles during lockdown, appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live (2020), the BBC’s Comic Relief (2021), and spearheading a Christmas campaign for Prostate Cancer UK in December 2021. Their debut single that month was played on BBC Radio 2 and numerous regional stations.” ~ The Marsh Family

The world’s favourite Faversham family band are back and goodness gracious me, they are rather spectacular yet again. The Marsh Family sing with so much tender poise and meaning. In a seemingly plastic world, this humble fearlessness must be admired for its courageous energy.

Performed so elegantly, it’s hard to find a better song to portray the true feeling of the world.

South East London teen singer Tizane sizzles on flamed out love ‘He Took It All Back’

Tizane sings so beautifully on her honest indie-folk track and visuals for ‘He Took It All Back‘.

Tizane adds her brand of brilliant comedy horror on ‘He Took It All Back‘. The video is a welcome eerie pastiche of the Stanley Kubrick cult classic, The Shining, and features all the poster icons and characters, like Room 237, The tricycle, Jack Torrance, his son Danny, and of course The Grady Twins. A rising star in the USA, Germany and getting noticed through the world, this is an artist who’s brilliantly created music is getting the love it deserves.

Tizane has had an incredible two year journey despite her private battle with anxiety issues and the broader negatives around global pandemics and such. In 2018 she was hawking a handful of well-constructed ethereal ballads around the open mic pubs and clubs of Kent with an old guitar and the less than likely dream of a music career. With determination and sheer lack of alternatives kept her out there and from there she got her noticed. With lots of radio support and a massive loyal fan-base, this self-aware young teen singer with an old soul, is going places.

M25 Carpark teen Tizane sings so honestly and her voice is so real and striking to the heart, in a really good way. She is a creative who has managed to do her exams in this crazy time and has just stayed positive throughout. Her music is so relevant in 2020 and I can’t wait to see her play live. ‘He Took It All Back‘ is a quality song from London’s Tizane.
