Music Submission: Shout London
While the genre is mostly inconsequential in the songwriting process, Shout London’s sound is best described as an alt-pop-rock amalgam; whichever sonic form Shout London’s hits take, fervid heart-in-throat emotion is always at the crux of the creativity. As is the independent artist’s inclination to give his bitter-sweet hits an arresting progressive nature that amplifies emotion in line with sonic momentum.
new release [Avalon Kane – tracks]
If you take a snapshot of your life you want to see a map full of paths, holes, rips, crossroads, twists and turns, not one straight line. Forging your own road and not sitting on time to make things happen.
Avalon Kane says “I have been a fan of Stu’s music for a while. When I had finished the song I thought of their voice straight away. Stu’s voice seems to transcend time and when you hear it live it is incredible. We worked with Max Hurrell from Songbird Society at Bowden and everything fell in place really easily. When Stu had finished a vocal, Max would ask which one to choose and honestly I couldn’t fault any. I am really privileged to be able to work with Stu and Max.”
