BEACONS FESTIVAL – The Amazing Sessions

As usual when Amazing Radio head to a festival, we always try and catch up with a few of our favourite artists for a stripped back, on location session. The more remote the location the more beautiful the performance – that’s usually the rule they follow. This year, for Beacons Festival 2014, we upped our…

Blair dunlop 186

Session: Blair Dunlop

Blair Dunlop is no stranger to the limelight. As a youngster  he was cast in the 2005 version of Charlie & The Chocolate Factory with Johnny Depp in 2013 he won the Horizon Awards at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. As well as being a hugely impressive artist in his right, he also happens to…

Wilsen 2 Ft

Session: Wilsen at CMJ

Day two of The Amazing Sessions at CMJ in New York saw us blown away by rising star Wilsen, the alias of Tamsin Wilson who performed for us in the penthouse suite at the East Village’s Standard Hotel. Ahead of performances from Andrew Duhon, Royal Teeth, and The Teen Age, Wilsen‘s faultless delivery of House on the…

Session: Eliza & The Bear

Our love for Eliza & The Bear is certainly no secret here at Amazing Radio, since we first began playlisting their tracks they’ve developed into a confident, no-holds-barred pop machine, with choruses to die for and an ever growing fan-base to boot. Having stolen the show at our Royal Albert Hall gig in March, we…

Thumpers Session at Beacons Festival 2013

Session: Thumpers at Beacons 2013

You may have noticed that some of team amazing have spent the weekend in Skipton, the glamorous home of Beacons Festival! Whilst there we were lucky enough to catch up with the excellent Thumpers, who our love for here at the station is well documented, for example here, and here.

Session: Andrew Duhon

New Orleans native Andrew Duhon came to join us in The Amazing Sessions studio to share with us two songs from his burgeoning songbook. Telling stories is Andrew’s thing and his mixture of folk-pop, blues and roots is the perfect vessel for intricate, emotional and witty tales of love, loss and small-town America amongst other…

wolfalice186

Session: Wolf Alice

Wolf Alice have been compared to the xx and Lynyrd Skynyrd in their short time as a band, but it’s easy to see why given that they appear not to write the same song twice. Starting as an acoustic duo featuring Ellie Roswell (Vocals) and Joff Oddie (Guitar), the addition of Joel Amey (Drums) and…

umo_tge_186

Session: Unknown Mortal Orchestra

Ruben from Unknown Mortal Orchestra kindly took a break from The Great Escape and joined us in one of Brighton’s beautiful parks to record this exclusive version of Swim & Sleep Like a Shark. We haven’t seen many acoustic performances by Ruben so we were delighted when he agreed to play for us and were even…

marika_hackman_186

Session: Marika Hackman at The Great Escape

We were lucky enough to have half an hour of Marika Hackman‘s time whilst at The Great Escape 2013, in which we took to Tidy Street for this gorgeous version of current single Bath Is Black. Marika battled traffic noise, persistent seagulls, surprisingly loud skateboarders and yet still gave a beautiful performance.

eye_emma_jedi_tge_186

Session: Eye Emma Jedi at The Great Escape

Eye Emma Jedi are ready for anything. Huge stages, small acoustic sets, gull droppings and hoards of French kids gawping at them as they perform their A-List single Places in a Brighton park. Alexander and Andrew are such pros, you’d never guess from this performance that the guitars are loaners, recently re-strung, and that they’re…
