W@LL – One More Time – Press Release


ARTIST: W@LL
TRACK: One More Time
LABEL: BritishPopSongs UK

Release Date: 29th of April 2015
Label Contact: britishpopsongs@gmail.com



The American/Scandinavian singer/songwriter W@LL may not yet be known by the international lovers of the great British sound, but he sure does fly the flag for the sound championed by the likes of David Bowie, the Smiths and more recently Snow Patrol.

He could somehow have sunk beneath such great company, but with the release of debut single One More Time through BritishPopSongs UK, he does proove to be a worthy successor in his own right.

Like these bands before him, he embraces bittersweat soundscapes together with a real knack for good song writing and with the help of label manager Ian Nilsen he produces music that instantly could please your ears. He has a past in various other bands, but have maybe never been as catchy as this time around. One More Time is a superb pop song, a real bold piece of modern pop music of high order, a real one to chill too, deepen yourself into and that’s no bad thing by any means.

Stian Summer – Lucy – Single Fact Sheet


ARTIST: Stian Summer
TRACK: Lucy
LABEL: BritishPopSongs
OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE: beginning 2015 tba
ISRC: tba
LABELCODE (Germany): tba

One Man Band: Scandinavian born singer-songwriter and BritishPopSongs founder Ian Nilsen performs for the first time as his alter-ego Stian Summer on his soon to be released debut single “Lucy” taken from forthcoming album “Introducing Stian Summer Volume One”.


Having literally composed, arranged and produced hundreds of songs via his very productive past in London or later for the host of artists that have had been lucky enough to be part of the BritshPopSongs family before being scaled down by him last year, he is now making chart breakthroughs with a collection of songs written for himself by himself that draws influences from 70’s and 80’s British Pop music, from Bowie, Cure, Smiths and Coldplay.

Dividing his time between Copenhagen and Berlin, he got his eyes set on top 20, with an album that embraces all the good about British and Scandinavian music. Lush harmonies, edgy guitars, catchy tunes and a hell of a lot of attitude.

Although Stian Summer is not exactly ‘real’, being a half fictious figure based loosely on Ian himself (albeit younger and less responsible) so to say, Ian do bring much heart and soul into this rather unique album. It happens to be his first album that he does for himself.


“This mid-tempo track was first thrown around as an early indicator during the later Kings Road days” Ian reflects “and somehow I think that it was this very track that made me want to do Stian some day”. I actually did not know any Lucy’s, sometime you just sit there singing these lines and you are kind of stuck with it. I actually did meet a Lucy later, she was a waitress down the local, beautiful she was, she’s probably out in the world somewhere with her boyfriend and will never know that it’s kind of her song now!”

Lucy is out on BritishPopSongs this spring via BritishPopSongs.

Wall – All The Things She Said (Lyric Video) from BritishPopSongs on Vimeo.

“En beskidt kærlighedssang med et rent budskab. Temaer som længsel, afmagt, håb og drømme en del af livet og det at elske. Alle kan genkende budskaber i kærlighedens væsen, som bringer det bedste frem, men som også kan gøre det modsatte. Det vigtigste er at turde satse, ikke give op, uden at vide om det lykkes.” – Wall – København Marts 2015

Københavnske Jacob Wall er en halvt dansk-halvt amerikansk singer/songwriter, som netop nu udsender sin debut som solist efter en årrække at have været frontfigur i flere københavnske bands.

Han er søn af en Amerikansk jazz musiker der som andre nu legendariske musikere slog sig ned i København i 60’erne og 70’erne og som jo i sidste ende betød at Danmark siden er blevet et internationalt centrum for jazz af højeste standard. Hans far spillede med mange af de fineste af dem, deriblandt Dizzy Gillespie, Dextor Gordon og naturligvis Kenny Drew.

Wall er ingen uerfaren herre på den danske musikscene og har et godt tag i et livepublikum. Med sange som One More Time, All The Things She Said og Impossible Dream debuterer han på det innovative label BritishPopSongs UK, som har specialiseret sig i den fantastiske britiske sangskrivertradition fra 60’erne frem til i dag.

One More Time er sammen med All The Things She Said den første single fra Walls kommende album Impossible Dream, som musikalsk set tager afsæt i hans US baggrund koblet med det bedste af den britiske sound. Inspirationskilderne inkluderer bands og artister som Snow Patrol, Bowie, The Police og Coldplay.

Wall har en moden tilgang til sangskrivning, men flirter samtidig med en relevant, frisk, iørefaldende og moderne sound. Han lægger vægt på sine tekster, og som han selv siger:

“Jeg mener, at publikum har brug for gode historiefortællere – ligeså meget som dygtige sangere. Musik handler for mig om sjæl og nerve, vi taler ikke om stilarter hér, mere om sangere inden for deres felt med noget på hjerte, det skal have en autencitet som en Cash eller en Springsteen. Det handler for mig ikke kun om sangteknik, det handler også om at formidle en historie. Hvis en god sang lykkes, kan det være med til at skabe en del af lydsporet til menneskers liv. Musik kan bruges i forskellige perioder i livet, som en knap, hvor man kan trykke pause eller play og nogle gange spole tilbage.”

Hans label manager fortæller: ” Når Wall synger, så ved man allerede efter de første par toner, at her er en stemme, som er noget helt specielt. Sjældent træder en sådan vokal så langt frem i et mix”.

Walls kommende album er et ambitiøst projekt der markerer en ny periode i Jacob Walls musikalske søgen. Danmark er et naturligt “first stop”, da Jacob Wall er bosiddende i København, men ambitionerne rækker naturligvis videre end dette med Tyskland og resten af Europa i kikkerten.

This Is Berlin

“It’s been underway for a little while, my song to my face city. Its actually part of an album due sometime 2015, where 10 different artists connected to Berlin each does their version. This is my original version, a kind of Rocky David Bowie 70’s style, blended with Stian.”


Brand New Day

“I would so much hope that this ‘U2’ moment of mine, could become kind of a hit single for me. It contains bits of all my favorite things, the beat, the Stian kind of vocals, bittersweet stadium soundscapes and so on. ”

Lucy

“This mid-tempo track was first thrown around as an early indicator during the later Kings Road days” Ian reflects “and somehow I think that it was this very track that made me want to do Stian some day”. I actually did not know any Lucy’s, sometime you just sit there singing these lines and you are kind of stuck with it. I actually did meet a Lucy later, she was a waitress down the local, beautiful she was, she’s probably out in the world somewhere with her boyfriend and will never know that it’s kind of her song now!”

She Told She Loved Me Not

“For long this was the real contender for first single from Stian, recorded on a sunday morning after a rather long night out, listening to lot of old 70’s and 80’s New York underground classics in a cool Copenhagen club. In some years i guess it could be regarded as the real defining Stian moment, maybe.”

Higher Love

“Initially composed for a girl vocalist as a film score track, I quickly understood that it was pure Stian. I simply adore the female sha-la-la’s all over. You can notice that these theme is present all the way through the song shifting instruments along the way.”

Temptation

“Original written for a German LA-based artist I decided that I was better off not giving this track to anyone else than Stian. He shire is a pop sensation, but so does Stian try to be, haha, well I think this kind of half tempo upbeat thing suits his universe very well.”

Silly Thing

“This track was an early debut from the sessions of what was to become Stian Summer.

A fresh catchy 80’s style British Edgy Pop track that got bits of the CURE and even Sex Pistols in there. Also check out the remixed version.”

Eyes Of A Tiger

“Oh, that title… I mean, although not exactly the same as the Rocky one soundtrack title, it’s a little close. I have tried to change it numbers of times, but without success, and as the years passes, i guess it’s no longer a problem. Absolutely one of the bigger beats that i have ever produced.

Right From Wrong

This song was actually written with a German female in mind, She declined it even as I wanted her to work on it together with me. It would also have been good for somebody like Nena, but I don’t know her or her people. Had problems with getting the chorus right always, think this remake works, I’m happy with it now.”

Suzannah

“First version of this track was was written ages ago, this is the original beat, very British circa late eighties. If you like, try to have a go at the remixed version, interesting.”
