"Listen Like It's Gospel" is the latest release under the Indieink Music umbrella via Sony /Orchard, today ( March 12th). The talented Multi- Award-winning singer Prana Songbird performs the track, alongside Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora.
The track was written by Multi-Grammy Award-nominated artist and producer Thomas Marolda to bring the best out of Prana's powerful voice. Prana's vocals were recorded at The Dream Studios Complex in Alva Florida with engineer Chad Zuchegno.
Detroit- based Prana is a French/Creole singer and actress with ties to the Choctaw Indian tribe. She has performed on the international stage with Grammy Award-winning artists and writers. "Listen Like It's Gospel" is the perfect song for the vocalist to showcase her amazing richness and tender voice to capture the true meaning behind the song's evocative imagery.
Sambora is the ample musician to present Songbird's heartening vocal timbre to the accompaniment of string arrangements. The sultry and soulful atmosphere allows Prana to tell a story to the backdrop of an impressive backing band. Words by Anselm Anderson

Queensland - based country-punk rockers' The Ten Ton Tinnies are a band that featured heavily on these pages back in May with " Bad Gas Travels Fast in a Small town", a fun take on town gossip, served with a hint of the band's raucous humour and hard-hitting rock. (check the link below to read the full review and interview.) https://anselmanderson.blogspot.com/2020/05/bad-gas-travels-fast-in-small-town.html r The trio will finally unleash their debut album Tons of Tins on July 31st to an army of new followers. The LP is ten songs of their unabashed humour mixed with country grooves, punk attitude and some drinking tales. Part-Time Hillbilly is a punchy opening track with plenty of guts and energy . Vocalist Luke Turley seems intent in this narrative about leaving home. He delivers with panache against a backdrop of thunderous drums and jangly guitars that feel like this could be a future hit. Down in the Country is an energetic punk song remi
Electropunk act Calling All Astronauts return with latest single Post-Truth World, due out on July 24th via Supersonic Media. The London-based trio has collaborated with Grammy Award-winning producer Alan Branch ( U2, Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails). The single is a remix of the single taken from the critically acclaimed album Resist. CAA combine stark atmospherics with retro electropunk vibes and a penchant to write about social issues of the day. Post-Truth World is no different from this political look at modern society. The band contrast synthesisers with a vibrant electric guitar sound segue into the Depeche Mode-Esque vocal style. Vocalist David B reflects through a distorted voice, in contrast to the harsh vocals on the chorus. The band juxtapose dark tones with a more vibrant electronic sound to reflect sense of urgency creeping into civilization through keys and programming for fans of Joy Divison and 80's electronica.

This February, the band were due to embark on a European tour with Kill Ritual, Crystal Viper and Wolf, but the pandemic put a halt to that. I spoke with frontman John Gallagher about the new album, the postponed dates, and what it was like to come through during the NWOBHM era. Good Morning, how have you and the band been during this pandemic? Hi! We are hanging in as they say...working on a number of upcoming projects.. I’ve been steadily writing new material as well as putting out my “ bass noodles” every day on Facebook! Raven released their most recent album "Metal City" last year, how has the overall response to it been? The album felt like a throwback to old school basics, was that your intentions going into making the album? The reaction has been pretty amazing actually.. the best reviews we have had in forever... but more importantly the fans really “ get” it. We
