Sam Fender There are few artists nowadays that truly captivate me and sound completely 'fresh' to my ears, Newcastle born Sam Fender however is one of those. I was lucky enough to see the shields songwriter this summer at Y Not festival and was immediately struck by the power of his voice, the unity of his band and how different his music was to the usual 'trendy' songwriter or indie styles around at the moment. He is currently on an EU and UK tour in support of his debut up 'Dead Boys' which is to be released on the 20th November. I was lucky enough to catch him at Birmingham's Castle and Falcon.

Beyond The Tracks 2017 In it's initial year as a first festival, Beyond The Tracks had a point to prove. With a lineup full of Indie/Alt greats from Birmingham and Beyond carefully cultivated by the masterminds behind the City's prestigious Moseley Folk Festival, it certainly did this. Over the course of the weekend, the Festival hosted acts such as Orbital, Faithless, indie royalty Maximo Park and the Coral before closing on Sunday evening with The Jesus and Mary Chain pioneers of the early noughties Birmingham Indie scene, Editors. Sadly the weather was not on the side of Beyond The Tracks, but this didn't stop music fans showing from far and wide to enjoy a well crafted line up.
