Check out the latest tune from Egyptian artist, Music Theory, whose infectious brand of pop music is easy listening for all ears.
As a youngster, Music Theory was a relatively shy character, but he quickly found that writing music became a useful outlet for releasing his thoughts and dreams.
Although Music Theory employs a pop music aesthetic at the heart of his style, he often likes to experiment with hints of rock, dance and R&B to give his music that unique edge and help it stand out in the crazy world of pop music.
‘Down the Aisle’ is led with a beautiful piano and guitar accompaniment that makes way for pure, sweet vocals and an unbelievably catchy chorus line. I can guarantee you’ll be humming this one for a while.
Glenn Harrold is a multi-million selling self-help author and hypnotherapist who has also diverged into the world of making music. Is there anything this man can’t do?
He hit us with ‘The Wayfarer’ not too long ago and now he has followed up the success of this single with ‘Fading Photograph’- a classically constructed love song that addresses the age-old situation of losing the one you love and fondly remembering it as you get older, yet eventually, it fades away.
With a captivating (and slightly heartbreaking) video, Glenn’s music will have you gripped with its emotional prowess and it might just bring you to tears, in a good way though.

Rap artist Jake Aldridge has collaborated with Lisa Ambrose to form the catchy new single, ‘Fireman’.
With Lisa’s delicate pop vocals forming the infectious, yet gentle chorus, and Jake’s well-crafted rap styling forming the verses, a unique combination is created through their juxtaposition and it certainly sounds good.
Jake wasn’t always drawn to music though. It took the unfortunate passing of his Father when Jake was just 11 years old for him to turn to writing. He quickly found that he had an affinity for penning lyrics and his confidence began to shine through this medium. Music suddenly became an outlet for Jake to express his emotions.
Lisa Ambrose was the recent winner of battle of the bandstands, hosted by Radio 1’s Rob Da Bank and this led to her supporting Mark Ronson and eventually meeting Jake.
Jake has some classic hip-hop/rap inspirations for his music including Dr. Dre and Tupac and his off-the-cuff style of rapping pays homage to these icons of the genre.

Listen up R&B/ hip-hop lovers as KADI’s latest tune, ‘Turn U On’ is one you should be chasing and it even has a powerful message behind, straying from some of the typical representations of women in the genre.
KADI has always felt that the industry portrays the wrong idea, suggesting that women can only get far if they are prepared to sexual in terms of their image. Concerned for the younger generation of girls listening to this kind of music, KADI is keen to help them realise that this is not the case; that women can succeed without ‘having a big ass or showing your breasts’.
‘Turn U On’ combines clever and witty lyricism with a strong agenda that aims to empower women and move away from conventional images in hip-hop. KADI is aggressive and confident in her rapping style, but this only supports the message she is trying to put across, and she does this effortlessly, never deviating from the aura of cool that surround her.
With some quality production values and an equally professional video, KADI is without a doubt on the way up with her brand of meaningful hip-hop-rap.

Norwegian pop sensation Line Mari is set to release her debut album ‘21 Days’ on Friday 16th December after being approached by major music producer Rob Cass. He saw her potential and invited her over to Abbey Road Studios where she began working on her debut album, with the help of cutting edge producer Pearse MacIntyre. Bursting with fresh young vibes ’21 Days’ demonstrates Line Mari’s powerful and distinctive vocals whilst still having a rock infused edge.
Stream ‘21 Days’ here now:
The album cover itself is really special – exclusively for the first edition, a small amount of real gold has been pressed into the ‘21 Days’ logo. The portrait of Line Mari on the cover is the work of upcoming German artist, Pixie Cold, who wanted to be involved simply because she loved the music. On the back side of the CD she has painted Line’s guitar – a special Gibson Custom Shop ES-339, named Mari.
Line Mari dreamt of being a musician from birth, dancing in the womb as her mother explains. Although shy at first, by the time she was in her teens Line Mari was writing her own songs and performing. Her shyness has fuelled her songwriter, making her lyrics more personal, emotive and introspective.
