Line Up Announcement – ALI INGLE…

We have tried to keep this one under wraps until Friday but we are just too excited. This guy’s voice is simply stunning and his videos are a must watch. We are honoured to have him play for us at this year’s Riba Rocks festival.

anunciando…. ALI INGLE

Ali Ingle is a 24 yr old musician from Liverpool, creating what he hopes is honest music for a generation of dreamers. En 2012 his witty and intelligent lyrics, and hook laiden melodies (not to mention that quirky voice) saw him fight off stiff competition to be named Male Artist of the Year at Liverpool Music Awards.

In Ali’s words “I’m not trying to change the world or make a statement. My music is just the ramblings and inner thoughts of an attention seeking kid who never quite grew up.”

Ali Ingle at this year's Riba Rocks festival

This echoes through his homemade music videos, which he puts down to his passion for movies. Ali puts the inspiration for his music down to growing up listening to David Gray, who he is now incredibly lucky to be able to count him as a fan!!

You simply have to watch these videosand he’s coming to Riba-roja d’EbreI wonder if he’ll be traveling on his spacehopper??!!!!!

anunciando… **Amaya López-C también conocido como Maud la polilla **

Estamos encantados de dar la bienvenida a las rocas de festival de Riba de este año, el increíblemente talentoso Amaya López-C también conocida como la polilla Maud. Su sonido único va a abrumar a los asistentes al festival en el Valle este mes de septiembre.

Amaya López-C - Maud la polilla

‘Maud la polilla es el proyecto personal del cantautor Amaya López-C, que utiliza el piano y su voz como instrumentos principales para construir un universo musical llena de matices e intensidad.’

Se puede escuchar su música este enlace.

‘Su estilo personal es difícil de encajar en una etiqueta, desde su formación clásica, pero aún gusto para la oscuridad, y los sonidos más pesados ​​hicieron de ella una especie de músico sin estado. Para ser justos citando influencias hay que nombrar compositores como Debussy, Turina o Esbjörn Svenson tanto como el canto de Mahalia Jackson o la fuerza de la herramienta, Faith no more y Batalla de los ratones, Entre muchos otros.

Maud la polilla apunta a composiciones que van desde la composición a la narración y centrarse en las ideas abstractas y una percepción de la realidad fantaseada, consolidar el estilo intenso y personal, que siempre se define el canto de Amaya lo largo de su amplia experiencia en la escena del rock y el metal underground de Madrid.’

Al igual que Maud la polilla en facebook aquí.

‘Después del lanzamiento de su álbum debut‘Inicio Inicio inútil’ (Noma / Nooirax / Excelentes Recs. 2012)Maud la polilla, llamó la atención de la prensa musical española especializada (Mondosonoro, la revista H, Rolling Stone España, Calle 20, etcétera) obteniendo excelentes críticas, tanto para su estudio y el trabajo en directo. El proyecto también fue seleccionado como finalista y semifinalista para los premios tales como “Festimad”,Termómetro "RS", “Villa de Bilbao” y “Destino Rock in Rio”, y fue elegido por el artista Ana Curra para mantener a su espectáculo “El Acto” de febrero 2012.

Maud la polilla está viviendo actualmente en el U.K. y está trabajando en un segundo álbum.’
