Multi-platinum pop act Walk the Earth return with their new album ‘Here We Go’. It features the previously released songs ‘Mike’s Song’, ‘I’ll Be There’ and their latest single, ‘Home Alone’.

From the very first note of his song, ‘Hard Time’, sweet-singing Jeremie Albino reminds us of the laid back and hazy tracks of Creedence Clearwater Revival. Smooth, modern soul, crossed with a folk-rock feel, it’s a song which will undoubtedly make you want to hear more from the artist who makes his home in the bucolic pleasant land of Prince Edward County.

Canadian band Marianas Trench have been around for the best part of twenty years, forming in 2001, releasing five albums since then, and touring extensively, most often around Canada and the USA, but also in Australia, the UK and Europe. At London’s KOKO venue, during their UK tour in May 2017, lead singer Josh Ramsay said how he was humbled at how many people were at the show, especially considering they had never released an album in the UK. The venue was packed solid, made up of fans, the curious, and media. All left impressed and wanting more. This year, Marianas Trench *have* released an album in the UK, the magnificent ‘Phantoms’, written around the theme of being haunted by the memory of people in our past.
