Signed, Sealed and they have Delivered - In record time.

Vintage Future & Mell

The ink was barely dry on the Zip Records/Vintage Future & Mell tie up and the initial single release "Alright"  shot up the Dutch charts. 

Whether coincidence or good timing,  VF & M are now in high demand at Radio 2 (debuted as the #1 on the Avond charts)  and appearances at other stations has become commonplace as well. 

Comprising of organ, drums and vocals, Vintage Future has one foot in the past and one foot on the future - Nico and Ton have the resumes and the experience.  Singer Mell Jonk has a voice that can melt butter and wake the neighbours.  

After one more summer show in mid August in Haarlem, Vintage Future and Mell will be gearing up for an October full length release and fall/winter tour.

Angela Moyra's newest single "You, Me & the Sea" - out June 29th

Dutch transplant Angela Moyra's new single "You, Me, & the Sea" was recorded in Los Angeles and will be released worldwide on June 29.

Now living in Hollywood, Angela has teamed up with David Ott (Earth, Wind & Fire, Empire, Zee Avi) to give her signature sound added instrumental layers and a subtle R&B flavor. Moyra's style can still be characterised as singer/songwriter; however, her lyrics also now encompass impressions of her life in California. There is a distinct tropical feel to "You Me & the Sea" - similar to the stylings found in the numerous Dutch magazine features that Angela has recently found herself in (Vogue, L’Official, Happinez) .

Of further note, the legendary Motown drummer James Gadson (Bill Withers, Quincy Jones, D’Angelo) appears on You, Me & the Sea. The song's video was shot in Bali and was directed by the notable Dutch designer Monocrafft.

Growing up in the Netherlands, Angela was influenced by a unique mixture of classic artists like Louis Armstrong and Minnie Riperton. Add to this such contemporary voices like Corinne Bailey Rae and Norah Jones and one discovers Moyra's worldly blended sound that coffee chain Starbucks featured on their playlist throughout 2016.

You, Me & the Sea is the first single of Angela Moyra's new full length album which will appear early 2019.
