Just like in the past where we predicted success stories like ALPHABEAT and ROYAL REPUBLIC, we are now happy to announce that HURRICANE LOVE, who have been on everybody’s lips for a few weeks now, are the new entry in the new 2013 Emergenza compilation which we do every year. As you know, we are employed to screen through thousands of bands and pick the best tunes. We knew of H.L. way back at the beginning of 2012 and we have been championing the Swedish sextet for a while now. Currently on tour throughout Germany sponsored by Track1, the pop masters will eventually sign to a biggie!…can’t tell much yet but they’re on to bigger and better things…….thanks to us!

New French gig in Paris for Beech in April. This will be the 4th triumphant return for Josh and his band to the city of lights. Always a strong following, the French love Beech’s music and invite the boys to play there over and over. During their second tour, a year ago a video was shot in Paris for the fans and since then the punters have grown considerably. This is just a taste of things to come as the band prepares for their third tour of Germany (second proper tour) and the first as a headlining band. Italian dates are added as we speak.
FSU is a sound and visual orgy for the soul. A clever pastiche that translates energy when seen live. They create a live mash-up through real time mix. The video is cut up and played like a musical instrument supported by the rock sounds of live guitar and bass.
Re-workings and remixes of dialogues from Pulp Fiction, Resident evil and even a genius ‘re-servicing’ of Once upon a time in the West, are played live on stage along side original tracks with videos recorded in both the UK and Brazil.
Following the promotional tour of Beech in Germany where a successful gig supporting Australian superstars The Temper Trap has brought label attention and lots of work for the future, Track1 has now undertaken 2 Major projects for 2013. A yet to be revealed super secret female artist has been signed to T1 for Sony records release on March 2013 and Italian super funky label Yorpikus has also given the roster to T1 for promo and management.
Track1 Music in Association with LiveZone will be present at the Reeperbahn festival in Hamburg. As well as showcasing Beech, Track1 will be joining forces with Scandinavian and German companies to bring more exciting and wonderful acts throughout the old continent.

BEECH is the new name for a project that has been brewing for ages. Chief songwriter Josh Beech and long time collaborator John Turnham have decided to go full steam and start a proper band. The band, aptly named Beech is the new beginning for the lads who recruited the services of 2 old friends and decided that a band is better than just a lad with an Acoustic guitar bringing songs to the table. Josh now has involved all musicians and says: “it is now a real band, like me and John always wanted. More input and more responsibility shared….That’s part of been a band, a democracy”. The lads are currently scheduled to play LeeFest in Bromley and will be gigging mainland Europe again after the summer….The “band” formerly known as JB & the Johns is now a new band: BEECH!
