- Nerd, TV/film junkie and music enthusiast. For me nothing is better then drinking warm British lager listening to live music, be it in a hot sweaty venue or in a muddy field during festival season. Delighted to be bringing a British twist to PureGrainAudio!

The intimate size of the venue will go down as one of those times where whoever was there will remember how it felt when they next see Myles Kennedy in a vastly larger room.

If you are a fan of Myles Kennedy’s vocal talents and have a desire to see where his songwriting has taken him in the country and folk realm, Damian Fitzgerald strongly recommends Year of the Tiger.

What better venue than a small, intimate venue like the O2 Academy in Islington to see 36 Crazyfists and supporters, All Hail The Yeti, bring their metal party vibes!?

In conclusion, Where is Duke Lion? He's Dead... is one of the most batshit crazy albums I’ve heard in a long, long time.

Truth be told, Lanterns comes across as really quite generic in its sound and, after several listens through, I still struggle to pick anything that stands out from the crowd.

The fact that Lionize can produce songs that fuse genres as well as tell some thought-provoking stories is a winning combination.
