New Music from Savannah

 

Sunday, December 20th, 2020 

Written By: David Francis

 

Savannah Rose is a singer / songwriter from the Isle of Wight hoping to develop a career in the music industry. She told Isle of Wight Radio that she was born in America and moved to the UK when she was 4 so is am still heavily influenced by American music culture but also by UK music culture so I think this gives me a unique perspective she says.

Savannah says, I tend to make pop, house, lo-fi and dance music;  I'm very influenced by these genres and they are the genres I tend to gravitate towards. I have numerous performances under my belt and I am working towards getting my original songs on streaming services such as Spotify and Apple Music. In addition I have recently been working with different producers to develop my original material. I’ve always loved music and singing and this started when I was in primary school.  My friends and I used to sing and dance at break to practice for the school's talent competition where we placed third one year and second the following year. When I was younger, my friends and I even signed up to audition for Britain's Got Talent! I’ve always been heavily encouraged by my friends and family to progress my talent and passion.  In terms of my musical inspirations my biggest one is my brother, he’s always been my biggest supporter and tells me that I will make it someday; he always reminds me to try my hardest and it will happen. My brother has DJ’d and Rapped in front of thousands of people abroad and I have always been inspired to have similar experiences; I have always wanted to travel with my music. 

 

Following my journey, I then went on to attend high school at Christ the King College on the Isle of Wight where I took GCSE music among other subjects. Through studying music at GCSE, I realised my passion even more and decided to progress on to Platform One Music College to further these skills. I am now in my final year of Platform One and it has been very beneficial for preparing me for the music industry and giving me the knowledge, confidence and experience that I need. My main focus is to release my music on streaming platforms which I’m currently working towards now and it should be up in January. 

 

My Song Imagine is a breakup song but instead of a sad breakup song it’s one explaining everything that the person did wrong and being better off without them. This song is just full of emotions and I love using my lyrics to story tell.


Savannah is also due to play at the Isle of Wight Festival in 2021.

Benny Jet told Isle of Wight Radio that his music is punky and glam rock inspired but sonically also loves more modern artists like Massive Attack and FKA Twigs for "making music that's interesting, so I'm more then just a run of the mill Punk Rocker."

Benny says "I've been gigging since I was 14, but have collated a large amount of material over the last few years of writing. My songs are very cente

red on British Life and Loves, I even have a hopeful song called "Barry"....about Barry from EastEnders."

The Isle of Wight's Beth Brookfield Releases Debut Single

 

Tuesday, November 24th, 2020 

Written By: Paul Topping

After growing up around music, she fell in love with it at a very young age. People noticed her

deep-toned voice, which she has used to her advantage, being able to cover songs by Eric

Clapton and Bruce Springsteen, whilst making them her own with her acoustic guitar.

Brookfield learnt to accompany her voice at just 9 years old, starting with the ukulele and then

quickly moving onto learning guitar and piano. Since then she has been songwriting and

performing as a solo artist. Beth loves music that makes her feel something, whether that be

emotional lyrics or a dreamy guitar riff. She takes influence from artists such as George

Harrison, Fleetwood Mac and Rayland Baxter.

 

 

Her single ‘The Journey’ is a blend of soft vocals, country inspired guitar and moving lyrics.

Beth wrote the song, then at the latter end of 2019 started producing it with Hungry Hound

Productions. The track was recorded at Skinny Mammoth Studios on the Isle of Wight .

 

Beth told Isle of Wight Radio “ The Journey is about the progression of a relationship, starting with that initial

starstruck feeling and travels through all the emotions of falling in love. Every lyric means

something to me and I hope people listening can relate to them, I love that music has the ability

to bring back so many emotions ”

 

Beth was set to perform at the ‘Isle of Wight Festival’ in June 2020, but following the

cancellation of the event she is now looking forward to hopefully performing there in 2021, as

well as growing as an artist and working on releasing more original music.
