Jamie Young is a singer-songwriter from the UK and with his new EP release looming, I caught him for a quick chat about all things from black socks to his musical influences. Cue talk of Matt Healy, boys and girls.
I'VE been recording my Debut EP for the past 6-7 months now

Welcome to Delirious Antidotes! It’s an absolute pleasure to have you on the blog. Can you quickly describe who you are to give my readers a short overview?

Thank you for having me! I’m Jamie Young 22 years old, Singer/Songwriter from Worcestershire.

Over the last few months, you’ve been working on your new EP. What can fans expect to hear from you?

Yeah I’ve been recording my Debut EP for the past 6/7 months now with another artist who’s producing it for me, Ben Stancombe. I think people can expect a range of different styles from the EP as I like to experiment with different things with music. I’m working with a very talented producer so I’m really excited about releasing it next year; we’ve spent a long time writing the EP so hopefully the hard work shows through the EP when people listen to it.

15 Minutes of Fame

One of the coolest things about independent musicians is that they use the most innovative and engaging ideas to create, curate and share their music. From filming and recording their music wherever they can (or in sheds, like these Shed Sessions), to creating homemade music videos, some of the most authentic music – and indeed art – is created by independent musicians with the freedom and determination to do what they deem fit to promote their work.

11755739_916328261757161_6721612086923703958_nAngelique Rodrigues is a singer-songwriter and she is asking the public (that’s you!) to get involved with her most recent music video. Now, you don’t have to jump on a train to London or wear your Sunday best. Getting involved with this project simply consists of you sending pictures to Angelique of you and your partner or close friend and giving permission for these images to be used in her new music video.

Getting involved is simple. All you need to do is choose a couple of pictures (or videos) and send them to her via her Facebook. Alternatively, if you don’t have Facebook, you can email me them and I will forward them on.

If you don’t want to get involved, you can still help out (and it would be really appreciated) by sharing this post and the post from Angelique’s Facebook (displayed below) across social media and helping to get as many people involved as possible. Continue reading 15 Minutes of Fame

Luke Potter

May 23rd 2015. I was with a group of friends at a local two-day music festival when I first heard of Luke Potter.

Guitar in hand, he took to the stage and performed an array of covers and original songs. Later, I managed to grab his business card and was handed his EP, ‘One Day’ .

Luke Potter has been establishing his name in the music industry for a number of years now. In 2011, Music Week selected him as one of their ten favourite new talents, commenting that “Luke’s songs are beautiful.” This seems to be a common conception with Promo Only stating that it’s “exciting hearing such a fresh new and exciting talent like Luke” and commenting that “it’s perfect for US radio”.

“We’re Alive”, Luke’s debut radio single, impacted several stations on the East Coast during the summer of 2012, having top 30 airplay in both Boston and San Francisco with video rotation at Hard Rock Cafes (“Great video”) around the world.

Both the EP ‘One Day’ – released in January 2013 – and the ‘So Sugar’ album (CD, iTunes and all digital stores) – released in November 2014 – were met with a great critical reaction, as presented by the number of reviews given.

It wasn’t long before I first heard of Luke that I decided to contact him with an interview proposition. Between his busy schedule, he agreed, and it went something like this: Continue reading Luke Potter
