Playlist of January 5 2018
Hold your breath
Siento que me he sanado
My truth
Safe haven
How did it ever come to this?
Time off
Welcome home, soldier
Home for you
Traveling back in time
New home
Let it rock
Song of the Week
Ireland in the sun
The system
Can't believe it

Welcome to the first edition of TalentCast for 2018. I hope this will be a good and healthy year for you and the people who are close to you, and of course I hope this will be a great year for independent music.

2018 is starting very well, because I received quite a few nice new tunes during my short break. One of these is by a newcomer to TalentCast, a singer and guitarist from France.

The musicians which I played in the last edition on December 15, before my short break, needed to be a bit patient because I will announce the results of the voting only now. I am happy with the first winner for 2018. It was their first time on TalentCast.

I will start this new year with a new single release from a Dutch band - Rosa Sky.

The Gang
The Gang is a 5-piece Slovak rock band, formed in 2013. Until 2016 the band was fronted by vocalist, hard rock guitarist, and formerly band member of Dorian Gray, Vadim Busovsky.  Since 2016 Dory has taken over the position of lead singer.

In 2016 The Gang performed at the biggest national rock festival of Slovakia, Topfest. The band's style is a mixture of hard rock roots and modern sound.. Their music is inspired by bands like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and AC/DC.
