#iSing: April’s emerging music talent

iSing Magazine takes a look at new music from emerging acts Tally Spear, Fickle Friends and Cameron Sanderson.

Tally Spear

London-based Spear was always destined for a career in the arts: her mother is an actress and her father is a muso and record exec. Spear’s brand of Americana-tinged pop features bright and breezy melodies; the lyrics, however, touch on darker subject matters such as anxiety, insomnia and the complexities of the human mind. Spear has made a name for herself on the live scene and has gigged at Ronnie Scott’s, Liverpool Sound City and The Troubadour. Her new EP is Fade To White.

Fickle Friends

2018 is shaping up to be massive for this five-piece band from Brighton. Fickle Friends have just released a new album, You Are Someone Else, and announced a series of gigs across the US and Canada later in the year. This run of good fortune follows two years of solid touring during which time the band’s 80s-flavoured indie pop attracted the attention of BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and Apple Music’s Zane Lowe.

Cameron Sanderson

For a masterclass on how to reach fans using YouTube look no further than Sanderson, a British singer-songwriter with a cheeky chappie persona and a striking two-tone thatch. Sanderson, a multi-instrumentalist who earnt his performing chops busking, has an impressive YouTube following (100,000 subscribers). Last year he posted 63 videos on his channel – 43 covers and 11 originals – clocking up more than nine million views. He’s now building on this momentum with the release of a new EP, Why Do Things Glow? Check out his latest single The Sun.
