The Trouble Notes - Jake Thistle - The Legendary Ten Seconds

The Trouble Notes - Never Dream Alone (featuring Carola Zerega & Freddy Dubois).

The Trouble Notes’ “Never Dream Alone” is a fantastical folk-pop ode to dreamers inspired by the cosplay community. Sitting between traditional folk, modern classical, and tribal dance music, The Trouble Notes have released their new fantasy-tinged folk-pop anthem “Never Dream Alone”

Written for and filmed at the 2022 Summer edition of Elfia, Europe's largest outdoor Cosplay festival, the video showcases the energy of the song with vibrant visuals and eclectic costumes - inspiring listeners to embrace their dreams and imagination

A call to embrace the fantastic, wonderful and weird, “Never Dream Alone” showcases the band’s quintessential classical-cross-over style, holding elements of an epic film score within the structure of a modern Folk Pop song. The fantasy-tinged violin melodies and string arrangements are a nod to the epic scores of the genre, while the operatic vocals of Carola Zerega and Bennet Cerven carry the message of unity in diversity. On full display is the energetic rhythms of the mind-blowing percussionist Oliver Maguire, whose unique hand drumming techniques elevates the listener to new heights.

Florian Eisenschmidt’s rock inspired riffs on guitar are the backbone on which pianist Frederic Dubois creates the harmonic soundscapes that shape “Never Dream Alone” and bring the listener into a fairytale realm with unity at its core. “‘Never Dream Alone’ is an epic ode to the dreamer,” says Bennet Cerven, Violinist for The Trouble Notes. “It was an easy song for us to write because we have always identified ourselves as such. We wanted to create a piece of music that captures the fantastic spirit of our favorite films and stories while being inclusive and easy to sing along to!” Overall, this track will take you on an auditory journey through realms unknown - so be sure not to miss it!


Jake Thistle - Ghosted Road.

Things have certainly come full circle for Jake Thistle. The rising singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist knew he wanted to be a musician at three years old, when he saw Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers perform at the Super Bowl Halftime Show. Now, Thistle is 18 years old; and yet, his resume boasts performances with – you guessed it – the Heartbreakers. Not to mention a performance slot at Tom Petty’s posthumous (and virtual) 70th birthday celebration.

Thistle has just released his newest single, “Ghosted Road,” along with the accompanying video. Both the track and the video are available via all streaming platforms now. "Ghosted Road began less out of story and more from trying to paint a scene,” shares Thistle.

“I actually wrote the song under a blinking traffic light outside a house I was staying at, so the song came from wanting to convey how lonely that atmosphere seemed at that time of night. The song is a continuation of my love of writing about roads, traveling, and the overall mystery of going to new places."

The video for “Ghosted Road” was shot live, as Thistle recorded the track at Lakehouse Studios in New Jersey. The video captures the process of crafting the song as well as a particular moment in Thistle’s career.


The Legendary Ten Seconds - Jolly Summer Scarecrows / Jack Rattenbury.

The Legendary Ten Seconds started off as the solo music project of Ian Churchward during the time when he was the lead guitar player of The Morrisons who were featured on John Peel's radio one show back in 1987.

In 2013 Lord Zarquon joined Ian's music project and since then the line up has gradually expanded and various guest musician's and vocalists have helped out in the recording studio.

Jolly Summer Scarecrows is a song about the annual summer scarecrow competition in Torquay. The song is taken from the new Sagas of the South West album.

We also have the story of the smuggler Jack Rattenbury who was born in Beer in 1778.

Jack Rattenbury the smuggler
Was born in the village of Beer
Where his family lived in poverty
With no comfort throughout the year
Jack Rattenbury the smuggler
Was born in the village of Beer.
