The debut album reflects his search for a place called home after moving from Argentina to America at the age of nine. Through the use of soft acoustic melodies and lyrics surrounding the harsh reality of life, It Isn’t Home serves as a reminder to those who feel lost that they are not alone. [via GLG Publicity]

mossandjones.co.uk Moss & Jones (Ruth Moss and Marc Jones) are a pair of acoustic musicians from Merseyside. Inspired by the narratives of folk and the etherealness of mediaeval music; the humour of the 1890s music hall and the rousing sounds of the 1990s rave, the pair bring a quirky polish and wistful shine to original songs, traditional folk and imaginative covers.Moss & Jones use a variety of instruments to create their folk-inspired sound, from psaltery to bodhran; from piano to mandolin; from ukulele to violin, and more. They sing melodies, harmonies and melody and counter-melody. The pair have played in a variety of surroundings; from intimate, unamplified house gigs to outdoor family picnics; from short-and-sweet sets at open mic nights to providing a full afternoon’s entertainment to paying punters. They’ve even played in a bandstand to provide background music for a fire-juggling show.Ruth and Marc got married (to each other) in one of their favourite gig venues, Liverpool’s Bombed Out Church, in September 2014; they played most of the songs themselves.When the pair aren’t arranging, writing, singing or playing music they can often be found introducing Ruth’s son to classic Doctor Who. They’ve even been known to dress up as the TARDIS between them and attend conventions.
Moss & Jones’s debut album, Amateur Astronomy, was released in June 2015, and is available from mossandjones.bandcamp.comESME BRIDIE
facebook.com/pages/Esme-Bridie-Music/425847114241693 A bright star on the Liverpool acoustic scene, Esme Bridie blends her natural, honest vocal tone with strong and potent lyrical content beyond her years. Pure and emotive, her songs echo the reflective nature of the 1960’s with an additional contemporary touch.

Indie-pop band, Stolen Jars emerged out of the newly emerging Montclair New Jersey music scene in 2011. The band best describes their music as “fitting parts into wholes. Stolen Jars is the way back. It’s that summer you spent living in your yard, searching for answers under rocks, it’s that blanket fort you made in the living room, it’s that game you spent so long making up the rules to that you never even got to play.”
“Kept” is the last song the band wrote for their upcoming album and the second song they are sharing.Kept HypeMachine
