#WeIntroduce: The Pilgrims put strong songs first

The Pilgrims don’t want you think of them as your average group. That’s because they didn’t get together that way. Whereas other bands come together with the intention of releasing music from the beginning, the Pilgrims first assembled with the intention of just writing songs. The problem is that when you start writing songs and…

Review: Philippa Hanna @ Bush Hall, London

If you follow similar people to us on social media, there’s a good chance you’ve been seeing a lot of Philippa Hanna on your timelines recently. The reason? Her #EdSheeranWorship video that saw her covering the track Prefect by the red-headed pop star. Of course, the Christian version of the song that gave Philippa over…

Review: The Walls Group @ Oasis House, London

Do you ever listen to an album and think there’s no way vocals can sound that good in real life? That wasn’t the case with the Walls Group when they made their UK debut last night. As it was their first time on our shores, we didn’t quite know what to expect. Sure, their music…

Review: Triple O album launch @ Camden Assembly

When he arrived on stage for his album launch event, Triple O warned us that he was going to take it easy at the start. He wanted to save his energy for the entire set. That disclaimer didn’t last long though. As much as Triple O said he was saving himself during the early tracks…

Big Church Day Out Spotlight: Lucy Grimble

One thing we love about Big Church Day Out is its variety. For all the time we’ve rocked out on the main stage, there’s also a contrast such as that found in the Kingdom Come tent. Lucy Grimble is a name that feels right at home here. Fresh from hitting the number 1 spot on…

Review: Premier Gospel Awards 2017

Retro is cool again. There’s nothing quite like a little dose of nostalgia to bring back happy memories from yesteryear. So in celebrating the cutting edge of gospel music in the UK at the Premier Gospel Awards 2017, the odd sprinkle of old school was welcome. First, we have to mention G Force. A decade after…

Review: Sarah Téibo @ Hard Rock Cafe

It’s a venue that’s hosted the likes of Aerosmith, Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney but it’s never been known for hosting gospel events. In fact, Sarah Téibo’s show at the Hard Rock Cafe in London might well have been a first. The venue was perfect for this type of show. It was intimate, with the…

Review: Becca Folkes @ Regent Hall, London

Wow. Just wow. If we had our own way, that would be the extent of our review of last night’s Becca Folkes live show. But apparently, it’s considered bad form to be THAT succinct. You get the point, though – we enjoyed it. Initially, we were a bit concerned. How can a singer with such…

Review: V9 Collective @ Close Up

They say it’s possible to have too much of a good thing. That’s definitely the case with some things, like ice cream. You’re going to have to take our word on that one. The good news is that after seeing V9 Collective twice in a short space of time, we don’t feel like we’ve overdone…

Baliva’s realist album yet – Exclusive interview

Baliva, the London rapper with over a decade of making music under his belt, is releasing his latest project today called Imperfect. This album is a bit of a departure from his previous body of work, though. Or rather,a progression. Imperfect is the album where he can be more sincere, bold and honest. “The last album…
