Welcome to a new music blog endeavor to capture the glory days of UK to USA music. Airports full of fans screaming louder than the Boeing 747s that are taking off may be a distant memory but the quality of music hopping the pond is not. The USA and UK have birthed the greatest musicians to tinkle an ivory or strum a Les Paul. The US is a powerhouse spawning legendary solo acts such as Elvis, Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen. Not to be out done the UK gave us god like bands such as The Beatles, Rolling Stones & Led Zeppelin. There is a rich tradition of music in both countries and it still continues to be this way. I intend to use this blog to help promote the UK artists that may be getting missed by the US public at large.
I am an ex-pat native of Scotland & currently residing in Los Angeles. I have been fortunate enough to work in the music industry on both sides of the Atlantic and have passion and love for both. However moving to California made me realize there are numerous great artists in the UK that the US may not have heard of. It can be hard for UK artists to get out here and promote themselves and tour without a major label backing. Its these unsung heroes (pun intended) whose voices I intend to promote and and raise awareness of, just like Paul Revere shouting through the town, only in music blog form.
