Quality Not Quantity - A Few More Good Ones

We are advised that - Scenic Void is a music project based out of Chicago, IL intent on releasing its debut EP in May of 2015. Fronted by eclectic and multi-talented musician, Patrick Jennings, he is presenting a thrilling sound with subtle intricacy; a meticulously crafted, emotionally driven dream rock EP. The Scenic Void EP was made available May 5th via Dancing Berries Music and will be playing shows around the Chicago area in support of the new release.

We say - It's a goody! Nice vibe, fine songs and some excellent guitar work.


Dark and dreamy duo Ultra Violent Rays will digitally release their next single, "Wish," on May 26. The duo of Cooper Gillespie (vocals and bass) and Greg Gordon (drums and sequences) create a fresh and layered sound that does have a strong hint of 'Siouxsie Sioux' in her more ethereal vocal renditions (our words - getting a bit creative here). Others have also mentioned Joy Division and Portishead as references, however we reckon Ultra Violent Rays have enough of their own talent going and are definitely worth your ears.


First the pedigree -  Atlanta born and Brooklyn fancy singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Sarah Kervin is internationally recognised as a soloist, guest artist, composer, and band leader by Downbeat Student Music Awards, the Jazz Education Network Composition Award, and research grants in vocal pedagogy from the Magellan Program. She has performed with great artists such as Jon Hendricks, the Manhattan Transfer, Ben Folds, the Fort Worth Symphony, and Afro Blue.

We can add that Sarah is excited to begin a new partnership with the Joyful Heart Foundation to advocate for domestic violence awareness. More about 'JHF' HERE. The new album 'Into the City' is out in June 2015 with proceeds to benefit the foundation, and we at Beehive Candy think it will do very well as the whole album is just so good! Available from CD Baby HERE, and itunes.


From Australia we are told artist - KIT is a mixture of Adele and Aretha Franklin in a soul infused fire of honest pop. Originally from Bega from country New South Wales, she displays great strength and confidence on stage whilst showcasing her passionate, vibrant personality. Having played well over 600 live shows, she is ready to release her debut single. KIT’s featured single Goodbye showcases her ability to demonstrate a strong soul vocal performance when accompanied by contemporary instrumentation.

We say pay attention world, another fine talent that stands out from the massive musical crowd!
 “Goodbye” by KIT will be released 12th June 2015.
