TGC Music Reviews – album review

Thank you to TGC Music Reviews for their excellent recent review of the album Endurance.  One notable quote to pull out and place in the display cabinet is “a bit like Enigma, but not sh*t, and fronted by Sade“…but that pithy soundbite isn’t necessarily representative of the tone of the piece.  I’ve tried unsuccessfully to […]

Beginning’s End

It is with real sadness and great love that we’re announcing the April 7th, 2019 gig at The Musician as Thure’s final stage appearance with Project Blackbird. After five years and two albums of shared music-making, he has decided to refocus his energies and considerable talents on other endeavours. Ming, Jon, Styx, and Jamie will […]

Radio Marabu – “Das interview”

I can’t think of a more generous opportunity for a band than having its full-length album played in its entirety on the radio, with each track punctuated by commentary from one of the band’s members. Which is exactly what our musikalische Freunde von Radio Marabu have offered us with their “TrackByTrack Albumspecial” featuring Endurance, first […]

A&R Factory Review of “Elevation” – 09.02.19

Thank you to Amelia Vandergast, whose review of “Elevation” on the A&R Factory blog describes the track as an “alchemic attack on ignorance and bigotry….leaving you with the sense that you’ve just stumbled across the artist we never knew we needed“.  As I write, The Specials’ album Encore is #1 in the UK charts, and Brandi […]

RnR Magazine Review – Vol 2, Issue 73

  A nicely positive review from Gareth Thompson in the January/February 2019 edition of RnR Magazine , which doesn’t tend to review independent releases.  “More a creative than commercial act“?  We’ll take that anytime, thank you very much!  But, credit where credit is due: the “two others” are the equally indispensable Thure Gade Johansen (co-songwriter and guitarist […]

#1 on Radio Marabu

  FM, shortwave, and online alternative music station Radio Marabu have quietly championed “Elevation” to the #1 slot on their playlist (“meistgespielten Tracks“), and on December 10th, DJ Marcel Fischer marked the occasion with an interview with Ming on his “Neue Musik” programme Gitarre X (listen to the edit below, or the full show here).  Vielen dank […]
