NEW SOUNDS: THE CLASS OF 1984
Last year I had the opportunity to speak at a music convention in the beautiful city of Cork, Ireland, and there I got to really get into it with some young and very talented artists and bands and talk about the industry and getting off on the right foot from the start. It's been great to stay in touch with some of them since and watch their development. This one in particular, THE CLASS OF 1984, has been quietly plotting and planning and taking all the right steps and are now starting to make some serious waves. The trio has plans to move to London next month and grab the bull by the horns, and with their arrival comes some heat. They are now on the radar of the NME (go vote for them below) and have the UK majors calling, all off their rough demos. They took the approach of the legendary JIMMY SMITH, and what could be called 'the chicken shack' approach. That is, lock yourself away in the shack behind your house and learn your instrument and master it before coming out. The boys have left the shack and are headed to the capitol of UK music, London.
