Prologue: Navona has been added to Indie Rock at Curators Playlist playlist.
The opening of the EP is intimate, imagine a smokey dark stage in a bar, a limelight, and ALETULLE introducing a journey that starts with a heart-break. The pain made her close up, and five years later she is ready to tell her story: how in five years she became ALETULLE from the ashes.

From the album Silverwing Twitter
The key to any good rock song is the Guitar everybody learned that when Chuck Berry came on the scene. Most notably he was the guitarist for Tears For Fears & played the iconic guitar solo on Everybody Wants To Rule The world. He was involved on the albums ‘Songs From The Bg Chair & Sowing The Seeds Of Love. Neil has had an illustrious career and went on to work with Robbie Williams for ten years. Recording the guitars on the big hits such as the solo on Rock DJ..Love Supreme.. Feel..Come Undone. Others he has shared the stage on tour and recording studio with are Tina Turner [Steamy Windows] Morrissey [Last Of The Famous International Playboys] Natalie Imbruglia, James Morrison [Undiscovered] Peter Gabriel, Rod Stewart, Jane Wiedlin [Rush Hour] Lisa Marie Presley, Heather Nova, Naked Eyes, Climie Fisher [Love Changes Everything] Van Morrison, Paul Young [Don’t Dream It’s Over] Holly Johnson [Love Train] to name a few..Working with all these iconic artists you can only imagine Neil has some amazing stories to tell. Now on his own……
Now on his own he has been releasing some amazing anthem sounding rock n roll ballads! In his own words, Neil says. “For me it’s about good songs..Being able to them play live & tour in a professional manner”
Releasing his own solo guitarist singer/songwriter material since 2011, His latest single is slated to come out 3rd May.. UNBROKEN The vocal prowess in this canticle rock anthem reverberates impeccably alongside the Guitar performance. Neil’s inspiration behind the new single “Unbroken” is about the loss of my dad. It really has affected me and even though he passed over 16 years ago, it feels like yesterday. A very personal song though I’m sure most people can relate to it in one way or another. It has a positive message
and gives a feeling of comfort.
Come Out Of The Silence is my 5th solo album..An adult contemporary rock/pop album which is unashamedly UK sounding & perfect for the US market. Most of the songs are the last songs ever written with well known song writer Steve Torch who wrote Believe by Cher & has 3 Ivor Novello awards to his name. Steve sadly passed two years ago.Neil says..This album took a while to come out as i had to finish writing it on my own..I knew i had it in me but i was used to taking a back seat whilst Steve wrote the lyrics & a lot of the melodies. I wanted to make it a tribute to Steve.. I think he would be happy with the way it turned out.
The emphasis is always been about quality songs to me & i don’t think this album will disappoint. Listen on Spotify
From the album 26 Twitter
Sunburn has been added to Workout For Girls 🍑 playlist.
“Sunburn” is from the album 26 which was released today. I recorded the song after I actually got a sunburn while spending the day outside with a friend. I thought the song might be a fit because it is motivational, uplifting, and about friendship. The album is about feeling disillusioned and about reflection, with “Sunburn” being the most uplifting of them. Thank you so much for your time.

REFUGE’s sound is high-energy, guitar-driven rock with strong influences from ‘70s greats such as the Allman Brothers, Black Sabbath, Neil Young and Santana. A comparable modern band would be Greta Van Fleet.
The band’s youth and diversity is unmissable – members are 12 (singer) to 15 years old and they have roots in 7 countries and 4 continents. The lead guitarist and singer are also siblings. All of the members come from parents that work in humanitarian aid and development, which is what brought them to Kenya in the first place.
After 2 years of gigging some of Nairobi’s best venues, REFUGE started making waves throughout East Africa in 2018 resulting in multiple international TV, radio and online appearances. Their first recorded song even debuted at #1 in the East African rock charts, and held that position for months. Consequently, exposure on social media has grown to over 15k followers, mostly in the US and Europe.
REFUGE is confident and ambitious, and is looking for more exposure. They are highly creative and fully independent – 100% of their music is written, composed and directed by the band itself, which recently recorded a demo of 9 original songs under the album title ‘Haven to a Heavy Soul’.
I believe REFUGE’s music would be an excellent fit with your musical direction and style, and I would be grateful if you could review their top 3 songs below:
