Sinead O'Connor - 'I'm Not Bossy, I'm The Boss'

Indicative of where Sinéad is in life the album is passionate and direct, yet with an overarching fragility; her voice is as powerful as it is tender. “Having published Sinead as a songwriter for the last 5 years, it’s great to now broaden that relationship to the Nettwerk label too. The new recordings are incredible and we’re all very excited to be working on this worldwide release for later this year,” says Blair McDonald, MD of Nettwerk Music Group UK.

Partnering with American Songwriter, Australian singer-songwriter Stu Larsen shares the official music video for “Thirteen Sad Farewells” from his upcoming debut full-length album Vagabond, out July 15th via Nettwerk Records.

Directed by Jarrad Seng, the official music video captures Larsen’s recent life on the road during last month's tour through Europe. The video, like the album, expresses the dichotomy of Stu’s amazing journeys, contrasted with the singularity of a man and his guitar.

To support the release, Larsen will join friend and label-mate Mike Rosenberg (aka Passenger) on his Summer North American tour. “Stu is my best mate, but even if he wasn’t, I would love this album – a beautiful collection of songs,” says Rosenberg. See below for a complete list of dates.

NW1 Music/Revelry Music Group/Lake Gloria Music Sign Nashville-Based Songwriter/Artist Austin Jenckes To Publishing Roster

and AJ Burton (Nettwerk/Revelry)

Nettwerk One Music/Revelry Music Group, along with the newly formed partnership with Neil Mason’s company Lake Gloria Music, have signed Nashville-based songwriter/artist Austin Jenckes to its ever expanding roster of talented songwriters, which includes Jessie Jo Dillon, Neil Mason (The Cadillac Three), Mike Fiorentino and Archertown.

From the rural town of Duvall, WA comes the voice of an honest soul. With lyrical roots in country and folk, and an unmistakably unique vocal style, Austin Jenckes is by definition a singer/songwriter. 
He has spent the better half of a decade paving his own way; starting with small local followings in sleepy coastal towns around the pacific northwest. In January of 2012, he moved from Washington State to Nashville, TN, where he recorded an independently released EP titled “An American Story.” 


Austin Jenckes was a Top 10 finalist in Season 5 of NBC’s The Voice and is currently preparing for an extensive tour schedule in 2014, where he will formally introduce himself to new listeners with the intention of greeting every ear with the voice of an old friend.

Nettwerk/Revelry’s AJ Burton says, “Austin’s name came across my desk nearly three years ago, which resulted in a successful collaboration with Neil Mason. Austin has one of the best voices I’ve heard, and we are thrilled to have him on board.”

The Trews Premiere "What's Fair Is Fair" Video; Tour Starts June 4


"Electric ultra-pop… Guitars and keyboards grind in time to the big buzzy heart-bleeding vocals." - IMPOSE

“The songs all creep up on you, rather than being over-the-top. What they will ensure is that you’ll want to go back and check them out again and again.”
- Classic Rock Magazine

Ten years, five studio albums and thousands of gigs in, Canada's The Trews released their self-titled, Nettwerk debut digitally in the U.S. last month. The album is an electrifying punch of 70s rock with tight grooves and pristine vocal harmonies and this morning, the Ontario-based rockers have partnered with Diffuser to premiere the video for blazing lead single, "What's Fair Is Fair".

Produced by Gavin Brown (Metric, Billy Talent, The Tragically Hip) and guitarist John-Angus MacDonald (The Trews, The Glorious Sons), The Trews is the band’s maiden release with new label Nettwerk, home to Passenger, Peter Murphy, Boy & Bear, Family of the Year and more.

Coves Announce U.S. Dates Supporting The Raveonettes; Debut Album 'Soft Friday' Out Sept 2

 “..they have us in the palms of their hands… ‘Beatings’ is a highlight, a wail of white noise-guitar and fuzz bass, with Wood a swirling shadow before bleaching bright lights, singing “my heart stops beating for you” like a modern-day Nico…They’re twice the band they were a year ago. It’s exciting to think where they might be in another 12 months.” – NME 8/10 Live Review (May 2014)

Coming off of a stellar performance at Brighton’s The Great Escape festival, UK duo Coves have announced their live Stateside debut this September as support for The Raveonettes, starting September 22 in San Francisco and hitting Santa Ana (9/23), Los Angeles (9/24), Chicago (9/26), two nights in Brooklyn (9/29, 9/30) and DC (10/1).

Watch The Video For “Beatings” Here:

Coves spent the last 18 months quietly acquiring critical acclaim in the UK, with support from BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens, Nick Grimshaw and many more. Their scuzzy cover of Chris Isaak’s classic “Wicked Game” peaked at No. 1 on Hype Machine. Following a set at Latitude 2013 that found the band playing to a rammed and rapturous tent, they signed to Nettwerk Records. They released their debut album Soft Friday on March 31 in the UK, and supported the release by joining Band of Skulls on the road.
