Beautiful Piano Compositions courtesy of Mike McCarthy

Mike McCarthy proves what a talented pianist he is by composing and performing the most beautiful piano compositions you will ever come across.

In Mike's compositions he is able to convey so many emotions through beautiful and well crafted melodies.

Two of my favourite tracks from This Piano are Comeback and The King, the sheer elegance of Mike's melodies puts these two tracks a class above his already thoroughly enjoyable chill out album.

Since his first piano lesson at the tender age of 6, Mike has composed his own material and this has caused his passion to grow and flourish.

This passion led to the 2012 debut of his album of original compositions, titled The Piano. Mike considers these tracks as his musical autobiography.

American Jazz Vocalist/Composer William Price King

The Show Must Go On -

This song begins with a gentle guitar intro courtesy of the talented Eric Sempe and then we are further entertained by William's moving lyrics and emotive vocals.

With William Price King's prominent Jazzy vocals and Eric Sempe's expertise on the guitar, they make a powerful musical double act.

William's musical interest began when he studied Piano and Clarinet at High School and it didn't end there, he then went on to study classical music at College and he stuck with it through the years until he graduated with a Masters Degree in Music from Yale University.

He then set his sights to New York where he put together Jazz Trio Au Naturel, the trio performed at some of New York's most exclusive venues such as Broadway and the Rainbow Room. This also paved the way for performances in Montreal but also for an European Tour.

William's debut Jazz album Home is a collection of contemporary songs, which he composed with sensual and smooth poetic lyrics and what else can one expect following vocal coaching from one two of the Jazz World's biggest legends Nat King Cole and Mel Torme.

Super Charged Rock from Austin, Texas

Blushes all round will guarantee to rock your senses with a super charged intro and some catchy guitar riffs.

I wanna be afraid goes all out with the drums and their lead vocalist has certainly got the rockstar vocals to match the powerful instrumental arrangements.

Love is nothing without eternity is a slower ballad, whilst i'm a fan of Sprightly Moans instrumental mastery their vocal stylings didn't really click with my musical tastes but after listening to this song there is a certain charm to the lead singer's voice.

The band describes their sound as Jimi Hendrix, Lightning Bolt, The White Stripes and The Bad Plus getting into a fist fight, where no one came out unscathed.

The band have also received outstanding reviews from a slew of online music magazines.

Chris Romans of Hear The Indie describes emotion as one of the main qualities of Demos III, specifically how as a band they manage to surpass his emotional expectations through their unique lyrical topics which often border on beautiful poetry.

Sir Jorge of describes their music as an eclectic blend and one which proves to be an emblem of creativity.

Chris Marsh of describes Love Is Nothing Without Eternity as a preciously fragile song which wouldn't be out of place on an indie movie soundtrack.

Mike Giord describes I wanna Be Afraid as a true masterpiece.

That gives you some idea of what to expect from Sprightly Moans, who are an electric two piece band made up of Dave and Jeff from Austin Texas.

The band have already had the good fortune of performing at various venues in Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts,  Pennsylvania and Delaware.

In 2009 Avery met Ted when the two began performing together and then Justin joined them on Bass, along with Conrad Mckenzie on Synth and thus Broken Hearts were born.

Initially using songs Avery had written towards the end of high school, it wasn't long till they began working on new music.

They started performing, firstly in Connecticut and the following year in New York, which also saw them start on their first EP.

It was also at this time that Conrad was replaced by Chris, but the band continued and the EP was recorded without the luxury of a professional studio and in 2011 it debuted and received airplay not only in Connecticut but also in Ireland.

As Avery and Justin finished college, the band moved in together to strengthen their musical relationship. 2012 saw them receive guidance from established musicians and they raised $10,000 on Kickstarter to fund the professional recording of their 2nd EP - The Anchor Rising.

The Suburb is a one man music machine, with an amazing vocal range, instrumental mastery, showmanship and creative genius, he entertains us with his wonderful reworking of The Buggles classic Video killed the Radiostar.

The Suburb is Spanish Indie Rock Musician Raül Bonilla, he is currently taking part in the one year one song a week challenge from November 2013 to October 2014.

His professional music career started with the release of two albums, Life Is Rara in 1997 and A in 2001 as part of experimental Garage Rock Band Placton.

Placton's Keyboard Player Adri A joined forces with The Suburb and formed hip hop duo 2in-par, who released their self named album 2in-par in 2005, this album achieved success as one of the year's best Spanish records.

He also found time to perform backing vocals for the likes of Macaco and Calima until 2011, it was then he released the Paroxismo EP as Placton where he was the only instrumentalist.

At the age of 16 Raül wanted to have a band so he found four musicians, including a vocalist/guitarist and it was agreed he would be their tambourine player as long as they performed songs he had written. The vocalist/guitarist struggled with singing and playing, so Raül ended up as the band's vocalist.

Better Days opens with a beautiful instrumental intro, powerful vocals and a crescendoing instrumental

The vocals on Vagabonds and Rogues are a slower pace but it's still a great song especially when the guitar arrangement kicks in.

History is a catchy and upbeat tune.

Lifesong features a stirring instrumental combo of piano and violin, also love the influence of Spanish Music.

Say What You Want Run is a beautiful and mellow tune.

No Place Like Home entertains with its catchy intro and its uplifting and inspirational lyrics plus the Guitar Riffs are simply beautiful.

Thorns is a sad song with its slow tempo and moving lyrics.

Mixed Emotions is similar to Thorns but a little more upbeat in terms of the tempo and it features a delightful instrumental sequence halfway through.

Girl In The Window is a beautifully crafted ballad and the Hawaiian style Guitar playing conjures mental images of an exotic beach.
