The Irish News Talks With Janet Devlin About Taking Her Music to America

The Irish News Interviews Janet DevlinJanet Devlin recently sat down for an interview with The Irish News to talk about her 2015 plans, including the upcoming North American release of her album, Running With Scissors on OK!Good Records. Her debut album will be available February 10th, 2015 with live performances and appearances in the US to be announced early 2015.

Janet first caught the public’s eye from her performance on The X Factor in 2011, receiving the highest number of votes for four consecutive weeks.

Even after her shock early after nerves got the better of her and she she appeared to forget her words, she was offered a record deal by RKA Records. Despite the temptation of fame, she refused to be cajoled down the commercial pop route, tuning it down to pursue her dream of writing her own music. “It was nice money but I didn’t want to be in the music industry for the sake of it – I wanted to earn my place,” she says.

Originally released in the UK, Janet’s debut album hit number one in the UK Indie Breakers chart and 43 in the UK pop charts in June 2014. With the upcoming North American release of Running With Scissors Janet is ready for big things as she brings her unique song-writing and enchanting vocals across the pond.

“I’m so excited. I’m going to be living in New York and hopefully it will go well because I already have a big fan base in the States from the Youtube channel,” she says.

Engelbert Humperdinck Featured on Media Mikes

eh- media mikes cover 600

Engelbert Humperdinck was featured on MediaMikes.com for his interview with Mike Gencarelli. During the interview, the two talk about Engelbert Calling, Engelbert Humperdinck’s first ever duets album, and his North American tour.  The interview gives great insight to the many details of making this album

Engelbert Humperdinck says it took just over three years to complete this particular album. “Thank God for internet for being able to send these tracks across the world to each of the artists involved with this album. It was a lot of work and I am glad that it is finally available to my fans to enjoy,” says Humperdinck.

MG: Tell us about the title “Engelbert Calling” I picture you going through your contact list and calling out all your friends.
EH: Yeah, the biggest challenge was putting it all together and making my wish list of people I wanted to work with. Johnny Mathis is one of my favorite singers of all time. I love his work. Kenny Rogers was great getting to work with. When I called Willie Nelson, he recorded his part in Nashville, I told him that I was so thrilled to have him on the album, especially singing a Bob Dylan song. Along with signing, I also asked him to play guitar since he has such a great unique style. He was so accommodating and after he recorded it called and made sure it was ok. So that was really great.

Engelbert Calling has 23 tracks, all of which are duets, on 2 CDs. To record 23 duets in the studio with all 23 musical legends would be a nearly impossible task. Engelbert Humperdinck recorded only two tracks in the studio. Engelbert Humperdinck recorded with Elton John, “Something About the Way You Look Tonight,”  and Gene Simmons, “Spinning Wheel,” in the studio together. All the other tracks were done via airways. “Technology has made it possible to do things that are impossible in real life. This album was done in England, London, Los Angeles, New York, Nashville, South America and Europe,” says Humperdinck.

MG: How was it singing with your kids, Louise and Bradley on this album?
EH: Yep, that is my son and daughter at the end of each disc as a bonus track. I was thrilled to have them there. I wanted to show the world, since this is a world release record, that my children can sing and also pay tribute on my album.

MG:“I Need You Know” with Lulu is one of the newest songs that you covered; what made you choose this song?
EH: I had to have Lulu on this album. Many years ago, when my single for “Release Me” came out, she was on a show in England called “Jukebox Jury”. There were four people on the panel and Lulu was the only one who voted my song a hit. She did a super job on this song. It is a great duet song, so it was easy picking. Plus it suited her voice very well.

Engelbert Humperdinck will be kicking off his North American tour October 10th at the American Music Theatre in Lancaster, PA. Engelbert Humperdinck plans on covering many of the songs off of Engelbert Calling. Engelbert Humperdinck even has a special surprise for all those who attend a concert.

“I do a virtual duet with Elton John. It is going over absolutely fantastic and people are loving the idea of it.”

Hafdis Huld Featured on Windsor Express UK

Hafdis Huld UK

Windsor Express has done a fantastic feature on Icelandic songstress Hafdis Huld! Praising her for her tranquil and honest sound, they also had the opportunity to speak with Hafdis about her home life, her inspirations, and more:

Her love of quiet family life and small pleasures such as baking certainly seem at odds with the somewhat erratic career of a musician, but in fact these opposites are endearing about Hafdis and her music.

With her UK-born husband Alisdair performing with her, it is easy to see what makes this work, and one wonders whether her daughter might have inherited the musical gene.

‘Arabella seems to be very musical already and comes running out of her room with a ukulele whenever she hears us playing guitar.’

Despite adopting the life of a domestic goddess to look after her new baby, she still managed to devote some time to her music and decided to record an album of lullabies while she was pregnant.

Though she currently lives in the idyllic mountains outside Reykjavik, Iceland has not always been home for Hafdis.
‘I love the UK and lived there for years, and of course I ended up bringing a lovely English gentleman back to Iceland with me.’
