A new label home for new recordings by the Americana music styled artists we have come across on our travels. An umbrella genre defined as a style incorporating early blues, country, folk, rhythm and blues, and rock influences. Label logo similar to one we saw on a Ray Charles record, that was good enough for us.
First signing is Sonic Blue, the band led by our published songwriter Stephen Brayne which plays the kind of classic R&B we at APM thrived on as fans for years. Second signing is Mississippi MacDonald, an extremely accomplished and knowledgeable Blues guitarist/singer/writer who, like Sonic Blue, hails from sarf east London, same neck of the woods as Dennis Greaves / Nine Below Zero and Richard Jones of the original Climax Blues Band as it goes. So we’re rolling around in the right blues territory.
Sonic Blue’s first album is out now, MacDonald’s first album with us is due for release winter 2021, with singles in between.
