London's a musical hub of innovation. Within, you'll find a healthy dose of accessible music that's broadly appealing, while also fostering some niche musical styles. On June 23, you can see the next generation of London's music scene take to the stage for Takeover Music Fest - a free concert hosted by London Music Office.
If you’re tapped into the London singer/songwriter scene, either by way of musicianship or just being a fan, you’ve likely heard John Muirhead’s name mentioned a time or three. The young musician has been receiving acclaim since his Yesterday's Smile EP debuted in 2016. His music is honest, genuine and, often times, can be taken as that ideal sound you’d love to have playing around the campfire on those relaxing, cool summer nights.
Seasoned drummer, executive chef and all-around nice guy, Chris DeMelo is no stranger to the music scene. Having lent his talents and time to several notable local bands like Drophanger, Ironboud, Mirage, Nostalgic Brightlights, Dustbin Flowers and Flight Of The Songbirds, he's learned a thing or three about the ins-and-outs of the scene.
Without further ado, here's what he has to say:
Last Saturday night marked the official re-launch for Reverb's return! The sounds were awesome, the energy was wild and EVAC was packed as the community came in to show their support. The night was a complete success and everyone had a blast!
Riffy and full of energy, the boys from Viscosity are back to put Beamsville on the map once more with their newest drop, Never Through! You’re in for a sound that’s steeped in a healthy blend of 90’s rock influence that will get you moving whether you’re in your teens to mid-thirties (but not limited to)! Andrew’s sharp guitar, Joseph’s grungy vocals and Sebastian’s dizzying keyboard melodies dance harmoniously together to create a sound that’s both fresh and… well, viscous!
