Johnno Casson makes warm ,heartfelt, & poetic music.
With songs taken from a life of experience & sounds drawn from an acoustic heart with a restless other worldly spirit, Johnno makes unique music that's hard to put in a box & even harder to forget.
Based in Colchester,Essex Johnno may be also known to you as the establish artist Snippet, the funky folky wonky pop multi instrumentalist, who has delivered an extremely well received range of vibrant releases in the last few years in the shape of 4 e.p's and the debut album ‘Slowly slowly catchee monkey’. In the process Snippet became the most played artist in the history of BBC Introducing and was described by Q Magazine as “reminiscent of early Beck”.
Whilst preparing for a run of Snippet live shows, Johnno found time to write an album's worth of new songs with a new acoustically minded sound and decided to release this under his real name of Johnno Casson.
Johnno's songwriting ability just seems to go from strength to strength with an innate ability to deliver powerful, intelligent and infectious songs and he has a a rich and expressive voice to deliver his songs.
"An album of stripped down,laid-back songs of heartfelt intensity-Iconic" Tom Robinson BBC 6 Music
"There's something about this album-it's a real treasure"
Sue Marchant BBC Cambridge
Whilst he's probably still better known for his Snippet persona, that could all be about to change for Colchester based singer-songwriter, Johnno Casson on the back of his debut album, "Window Shopping"...life is like this and there's real poetry on those journeys" Fatea
"Stand by: the improbable satisfaction that comes from little victories fills Johnno Casson’s delicate, quirky album, Window Shopping.As honest a collection of songs as you’ll ever find, and forged with a lot of love, Window Shopping represents another decent effort from a genuinely entertaining artist" Silent Radio
"A rich tapestry,An East End Brian Wilson on a budget, full of orchestral touches and multiple melodies and harmonies" Americana UK
“Like a grown up, mature, new narrative of Squeeze’s ‘Up the Junction’ set in East London and Colchester” Duckie
JoosTVD is a grooving funky, but also romantic soul. Selfmade, one-man's band, I've composed about 1000 songs so far..and counting. Used to play and record everything myself, but with modern technology that all changed and now I use real live played loops and combine that with jazzy playing, a touch of improvisation and bluesy rasp blue-eyed soul singing.
At first I started out as a drummer and played with a lot of bands in Holland. I found out that I could write songs too and ended up as a singer and did a lot of crazy stuff on stage to wake up the crowd. Now I record and write a lot and sometimes I miss playing these songs with a grooving band [HINT?], but on the other hand I feel very comfortable doing it all by myself. Trying to make my own mark on music.
he describes himself as a "zelfbevlekkende, narcistische, selfkickende, obsessieve, uitknijpende liedjesmaker" which loosely translates (I think) as a "self-denigrating, narcissistic, self-flagellating squeezer-out of songs" as freely translated by Mr Freshnet Tom Robinson. His song Bomb Won´t Go Off featured on his BBC6 Radio show in november 2012. (and it fellt great). Stupid Song(s) landed on his Radio6 Mixtape in november of 2013.
Various songs are now reguarly played on Croydon radio. (London). After 5 raving albumreviews by Nathan Nörgel in his online german culture magazine Wasser-Prawda, Nathan played two songs on his Radio 98eins program.
So tell me what you think of the songs. Did I just see your feet move?

Julie Lamb performs original songs with a 12 piece band, AWESOME!
We are called the Lambinators... cos we're stuck together!
It consists of the usual Drums, Bass, Guitar, and continues with the minimum essentials (!) of 3 Backing Vocalists, Keyboards, Cello, Saxophone, Trombone and Percussion.
So much FUN, and with the energy of a 747 taking off - but with more finesse!!
I hope you enjoy as much as we do!

From the lower south side of Plymouth (accent optional) a duo called Kepler Junction emerge.
A Band of brothers... well, two actually, and not brothers either, they make a lot of noise... guitars (some meaningful solos) bass (hits the spot) drums (strong and steady) keys (haunting, yet emotional) and vocals (great vocals and harmonies well thought out lyrics). On the whole a full-powered unit capable for delivering catchy rock (dare I say pop) songs of the highest calibre.
They have a desire to make music.
After travelling to Kepler Junction, via Nepalese temples learning the ancient ways we decide to cooperate again, live in the Cave (head torches optional) work as if there’s no tomorrow and this is what happens...
Putting the tunes into the machine, producing a mixture of tones and tempo’s to provide the listener with songs full of hooks which draw you in and provide a soundtrack for wherever it fits.

Lee-Leet is an independent singer-songwriter who plays the piano since she was 7 years old. She released her self-produced debut album "State of Emergency" in December 2009 with 10 songs. The full album is available at www.lee-leet.com or at www.merlin.com.pl and www.musicnet.pl.
"This album is hard to classify as it doesn't follow any trends or fashions. It doesn't try to fit into the current "hot sells" category either. No, Lee-Leet sang and played what she felt and what she wanted. We keep our fingers crossed! It looks like a great beginning" - said Grzegorz Zembrowski, a music journalist at the leading Polish nationwide radio station (PR 3).
Lee-Leet is an entirely independent artist on the Polish music scene and this is by no means her only differentiator. Her album "State of Emergency" quickly gathered interest of the radio listeners despite no promotional efforts. It were the listeners who started sending emails to Lee-Leet's website congratulating her on the album. She didn't expect that the one and only radio station where she dropped off her brand new CD on the way from work would just start, well, to play it... But Lee-Leet is in no hurry to enter the so called "main stream". She enjoys her independence and the freedom to experiment. Her melodious songs stay on the mind. Some say they are addictive. Lee-Leet's music is distinct and highly emotional. Lee-Leet is an example that entirely independent and artist self-driven music productions can successfully take off the ground. She is currently working on her second album.
