Press Release

Described as the Acid-Pop pioneers, the inner double identity embodied in their name represent a completely brand new frontier of music which includes a mixture of Acid Jazz - Funk - Soul - R&B - Pop and Dance.
AltƎrEgo is another identity, a double life experience that goes beyond the unique taste of the music.
AltƎrEgo are here with their debut album ‘Back to Life,’ originally released last year by Red Admiral Records UK. The album reached no. 6 in the Amazon Italian R&B chart and no. 20 in the equivalent French one.
In this space between releasing their album last October and December
AltƎrEgo also ranked no. 4 on ReverbNation R&b London Chart, which lead to further Radio appearances and the announcement of a promotional tour.
The album, made of 10 tracks, explores the band's main musical intent to melt the finest acid-jazz grooves & harmonies with the rich melodies and energetic flavor of modern Pop.
With influences like Stevie Wonder, Jamiroquai, Michael Jackson and Earth Wind and Fire, AltƎrEgo’s modern spin on music is guaranteed to continue to keep turning heads within the industry.

Artist Homepage: ReverbNation: Facebook: Soundcloud: Twitter:

The song “Three Lions Blazing” is dedicated to the true fans of English football and initially created to celebrate 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

In 2014 Pelican Babies are flying the flag again for England in Brazil

The rousing song and video performance by the Pelican Babies encapsulates the enthusiasm and heart felt passion that no doubt will grip the nation in the coming months. Pelican Babies will also be supporting the Great Ormond Street Hostpital Children’s Charity by donating royalties from itunes downloads.
Could this be the alternative to the Baddiel & Skinner song, created in a good cause? The artists Pelican Babies perform regularly as a duo, their acoustic sound consisting of guitar, didgeridoo and harmonica.

Guitarist needed for busy Rolling Stones cover band in Kent

Guitarist needed for a busy Rolling Stones cover band.  We are well established in Kent, London and East Sussex with a very busy diary of confirmed gigs booked. Although we don't do the full dress up tribute act, we do concentrate on creating as authentic a sound as possible and would prefer someone with knowledge of Stones material already and experience in playing in the open tunings used by Keith Richards.  An audition evening will be arranged at our studio in Sheerness and a decision will be made swiftly to honour a long list of bookings and events.

We are all close friends who met as strangers to form the band two years ago and we want someone who can fit in on a personal level too, there's always an emphasis on having fun.  We have a demo available if you would like to hear us and you can access the website for a look at us and our gig calendar.

Experienced guitarist seeks band / interesting project

I have been playing since 15 years old and am now in my 60's, and I have gigged most pub live music standards in rock or blues genre. I can play first or second guitar, do backing vocals, and play a bit of keyboards and blues harp if required. I have pro standard equipment ( Gibson, Roland, Marshall, Fender etc.) and obviously have my own transport.      

I am based in Folkestone and am seeking any like minded muzos who could use me? I am reliable, committed, and do not mind regular rehearsal until we are ready to gig, if you are a newly formed band. I am in it for the music not the money (  . . such as it is?) I would also like to consider any other relevant music project - I am available day and/or evening, have my own studio and do not mind travelling a bit for the right band?

If you think I could help you, please contact me as soon as possible.
