So, what’s new on ‘Turn Me Up Before You Go-Go’ recently?
‘Lost To The Night’ – C. SHIRCOCK
C. SHIROCK is Chuck Shirock – the new music from C. SHIROCK is an evolution and a distillation of his previous work, cutting to the core of his identity, with a power and clarity not heard before. Blending anthemic choruses, musical builds and releases with heartfelt and personal lyrics, the new music from C. SHIROCK delivers a vulnerability, urgency and an aching vocal that is uniquely his own.
Driving rhythms and bass are anchors to the soaring melodies, layers of keyboards, and programming that call to mind the emotive, intelligent pop music of artists such as Peter Gabriel and David Bowie.

‘Beauty In Imperfection’ – Passionchild
This bohemian soul is based out of “Music City”, Nashville, TN. His words are poetry, and his music, oil paintings.
Passionchild is influenced by emotions rather than sounds. His first release, “Singing My Song”, was born with the chirping of a bird, and his name came to him in a dream.
He finds great fulfillment in being a narrator in the virtual reality of life.
‘Don’t Step Back Too Far’ – The Crayon Set
The Dublin-based 6 piece specialise in catchy, alternative pop.
The band released their debut album in April 2013. It was produced by Nick Brine (Teenage Fanclub, Super Furry Animals). Single ‘No.1 Fan’ received airplay on Today Fm and BBC Radio 6 amongst other stations and a number of tracks featured on Irish TV programmes.
Its follow-up, ‘Lost Languages’ was produced by Gavin Glass and released in 2017. The album was a move away from the indie pop of their debut and was in part a homage to many of their favourite ‘Americana’ artists. A number of tracks were play-listed on Irish radio stations.
The band are currently putting the finishing touches to their third album with producer Stephen Shannon and it is scheduled for release in late 2019. A single from the album, Summer Song, will be out on the 14th June.
The Crayon Set are an exciting live band and have played many of the top Irish festivals and venues. Their dynamic live shows feature tight vocal harmonies, instrument swapping and occasionally some giant inflatable crayons …
‘Boys Like You’ – EMM
EMM is a powerhouse singer, producer, songwriter, classically trained multi-instrumentalist and women’s advocate. She is one of the most promising up and coming female indie artists in the underground today.
EMM has been likened to the vocal prowess of Matt Bellamy (Muse) and carries a spirit of empowerment similar to that which radiates from Beyonce. As a classically trained musical prodigy from a conservative, small town in Michigan, most didn’t expect her to arrive at such a unique sound with such tenacious demeanor, let alone emerge from the ringer of the music industry strengthened rather than defeated. From the Big Apple to Los Angeles, she has passionately pursued her calling in cities across the United States. Her EMMpire continues to flourish as she encompasses the magnetic story of one girl’s journey from fear into faith. EMM’s debut, “Burning in the Dark,” was the first ever mixtape to be entirely written, produced, performed, and mixed by a female artist on her own. With no label support, “Burning In The Dark” amassed over 250,000 streams within the first 60 days, as audiences resonated with EMM’s representation passion and positivity in the midst of extraordinary adversity.
