Taken from his recent 10-track Northstone Studios in Bridgend recorded album ‘Songs Of The Now And Then‘, Steve Andrews shows us his inner kindness and tremendous skill-set that he has been born with on ‘Butterfly In My Beard‘.
Steve Andrews is a free-thinking green beard loving Cardiff, Wales-born, Lisbon, Portugal-based indie blues singer-songwriter, naturalist and acclaimed author.
”Andrews is an ecoacoustic and eclectic singer and songwriter who has played at Glastonbury Festival on several occasions and was there as an MC for the Avalon stage in 2002 and 2003. He also appeared twice at the Green Man Festival and has two tracks on the CD album on Double Snazzy.” ~ Steve Andrews
This is one of the most entertaining releases from an artist who it feels like you need to see at least once in your life, as you enjoy his highly likable stories which takes our mind into a better place from this toxic world. The energy is alive with that real fire – that has you moving closer to keep out those cold winds – which can strike you down at a moments notice.
‘Butterfly In My Beard‘ from the Lisbon, Portugal-based indie blues singer-songwriter Steve Andrews, is a terrifically sung track from a true underground legend of the music world. He performs with a real purpose and you feel so compelled to turn up this track, as being truly free is the whole point of life after all. Just the innocent butterfly, we need someone loyal to look after us, while we find our strength to fly wherever we need to go.

Taken off his upcoming debut mixtape called ‘Epiphany‘ which is a result of a five year dream that has now come alive, ARU shows us the love with the romantic new single which will have you looking to dim the lights on ‘Emotions‘.
ARU is a new German-born, Lisbon, Portugal-based rap/RnB indie singer-songwriter, former policeman and sales promoter. He makes that soothing music which shows you how he feels deep inside, singing away all the bad vibes by staying present throughout.
This is the type of song that might have you swaying your body around as you think about that time you were low — but soon so high in the cloudless sky again — like the click of a finger. The nights were sad and dull but then the flirty eyes link together, and sparked close to immerse a light that has you feeling so happy inside.
He sings with a truly buoyant attitude, his new journey has enthused him so much and the vocals are raw — but eloquently performed — with so much care and that extra desire within is heard.
‘Emotions‘ from the focused German RnB/rap artist ARU, shows us that deep love he has for the girl who flipped his whole life upside down, when he was spinning out of control before. She had that spark of someone who helped him warm up inside — after so many doubts and cold weather nights alone, that was threatening to freeze him out of love in an unwanted icy igloo.

Getting into that mental space to love again can be a very difficult and traumatic time. Feeling love is a rejuvenating experience and one that we all need to have. On the other hand, you have been let down before so are understandably nervous to take that plunge again.
Austrian born singer-songwriter Cafe Ena has just released a dark indie blue song called ”Make Room” and takes us through her journey to her current place, so that she can find her deserved peace and happiness.
Verena Bachinger aka Cafe Ena, is currently based in stunning Lisbon in Portugal. She has traveled around the world and has incredible stories to tell us all. Her new EP, the aptly named, “Locked Spaces“, is set for release so it’s been a productive time in quarantine for the tremendously talented singer-songwriter.
”Make Room” is a self reflective & haunting memory from the fantastically honest Cafe Ena. She draws us into her bleak picture with dark and moody melodies, never letting us go. She is striving to love again and breakout of her locked up room and heart, flirting with the idea and we wonder if she succeeds or not.
Stream this excellent song on SoundCloud.
