Live at Berklee 2

NEWS: Live, intimate performances from Jacob McCaslin and The Goodbye Girls

The New Beatmaker is very proud to present the second in our regular series of videos capturing live, intimate performances from students and alumni of the world famous Berklee College of Music.

Up first we have fantastic live performance from singer-songwriter and guitarist Jacob McCaslin.

Jacob shows off his flair for mixing soul, rock and blues on the self-penned 'Crossroads to Nowhere' which is as infectious and memorable a song as you will hear all year.

Jacob is multi-talented, being gifted with great writing, vocal and guitar skills. Oh, and he plays a mean Loop Station too! Superb. 

Well, how do you follow that performance up? With fellow super-talented Berklee students The Goodbye Girls.

The Goodbye Girls are a four-piece comprising of Lena Jonsson (Sweden) on fiddle, Molly Tuttle (USA) on guitar, Allison de Groot (Canada) on banjo and Brittany Karlson (USA) on bass.

Here, they treat us to a live performance of the haunting folk song, "Graveyard" (Cousin Emily) live at Berklee College of Music's internet radio station, BIRN. 

Attention, Swedish readers! The Goodbye Girls' debut tour starts end of July in Sweden with dates at the Urklut Festival and Stockholm Folk Festival.

What a great pair of performances.  The New Beatmaker is honoured to bring you these videos in association with Berklee College of Music.

The Theory For Our Revenge 'OBORO'

REVIEW: Japanese multimedia art duo make a great first impression with their mix of industrial, trap and operatic pop The following is a paid for review and post, via humanhuman (see below).  It is always an honour and a pleasure to receive new music to check out and review; especially  when it's as enjoyable a listening experience as this first offering from The Theory For Our Revenge is. The Theory For Our Revenge are COLD FAITH and Jhas; a Japanese music production, fashion stylist and visual art duo The Theory For Our Revenge are COLD FAITH and Jhas; a Japanese music production, fashion stylist and visual art duo. Their debut single ,'OBORO', is a slice of experimental electro-trap / operatic-art-pop. Starting with an industrial sounding chugging and churning, the track moves into frosty, haunting melodies.

Forthcoming 'Influenced' Podcast

NEWS:  I'm contributing to a new podcast exploring creative connections between legendary and emerging artists Good news alert! I’ve got the great honour and pleasure to be working on a forthcoming music podcast. The podcast, called ‘Influenced’, will trace the path of new artists back to those which came before and reflect on how previous generations of music influenced those which followed their lead, be it directly or indirectly.  Playlists on Spotify and Apple Music will take the listener through our musical time travel in a mixtape fashion. ‘Influenced’ is the brainchild of a great friend of mine, Mark Williams. Mark is even more of a music enthusiast than me and his personality, charisma, enthusiasm and love for music is apparent to anyone who knows him, I’m sure.
