New Series: Coming Soon

Our Interviews

In-depth and conducted with genuine interest, our interviews strive to explore the character, hopes, fears, motivations and creative process of the person behind the artistry, providing a humanistic rather than consumerist insight into the work they produce.

a million creatures

Getting to Know #03
The solo project of New York resident Molly Murphy, a million creatures (all lowercase) appeared on Volume. 2 of our Beautiful Songwriting series, her captivating vocals and superior storytelling prowess having combined to allow latest EP, Fugitives, to leave a lasting and thought-provoking impression. I recently caught up with Molly, who gave a fascinating and in-depth insight into the connection between her self and her creative output, discussing the process driven nature of her work, the importance of storytelling and her interest in the darker yet hopeful side of the human experience.

Aphir

Getting to Know #02
Blessed with an utterly mesmeric, immaculately controlled voice and in possession of a seemingly infinite creativity, Becki Whitton is as compelling an artist as one is likely to find. Through her first solo project, Aphir, she appeared on Volume. 1 of our Beautiful Songwriting series, her debut EP, Invirtue, and its follow-up, Abandon, both making full use of her vocal and imaginative talents to introduce a wonderfully contemporary flavour to choral music. I recently caught up with Becki, who spoke of what Aphir means to her, ill-advised dancing and the potential difficulties of having an Australian accent. I make no apologies for saying that she appeared a truly kindred spirit and was an absolute delight to talk with.

Kind Words

'It’s a concept that you can’t really fault, and I think it’s great to see a case where the music comes first, and where sharing music and giving artists exposure is the main priority.'

- Craig Reviews Music (March 2014)

'... the Beautiful Songwriting compilation is well worth a look as well, especially if you’re a fan of slow, haunting, mostly-acoustic tracks that rely mainly on a great voice above all else. Normally I’d consider ‘beautiful’ in a compilation title a possible over exaggeration, but it’s wholly fitting in this case...'

- Craig Reviews Music (March 2014)

'... this [Alt/Punk Vol. 2] is a compilation put together for the love of it and it shows.'

- Scene Better Days (April 2014)

'... this album [Alt/Punk Vol. 2] is overgrown with excellent new music. If you like punk rock in any capacity, A Lonely Ghost Burning's Alt/Punk will serve well.'

- Project Burnt (March 2014)
