The Cambridge born R&B/Soul musician has recently joined the Rocking Horse Road roster and we couldn’t wait to share his music with you. The stand out track from his latest release ‘Nothing Beyond’ (which was mastered at Abbey Road) is Neighbours – it’s the anthem we need for this day and age. This track is provocative, incredibly relevant to the current world state of affairs and proves he really has something to say. The rest of album is filled with songs that are dark with a spark of hope, have big builds and feature Kyan’s raw & powerful vocals. Just ask Reggie Yates – the two became pals at a recent Amnesty International event. Reggie’s been singing his songs since (just kidding but we wouldn’t be surprised).
Main Themes: Immigration, Xenophobia, Confronting Stereotypes, Injustice, Closing Borders
Key Lyrics: “This room is the only thing we trust, because the TV says the world out there is still too dangerous. This room is our woods and prairie now. And though we’ve had to sacrifice our open skies just to keep the neighbours out – we’ve got to keep the neighbours out.”

Well, that’s what our featured track “Brave The Dark” from RHR artist Bird Passengers does for us. It’s catchy, uplifting and groovy – seriously, try not to break out into a dance when listnening to it. Bird Passengers have released 3 EPs and are currently located in Sacramento.

This week we have, for you, an exclusive first listen of “I Lost The Crown” by RHR artist The Mearielles. Think Game of Thrones meets Gossip Girl (Queen B, anyone?) meets The Royals. It’s sassy, dramatic and damn catchy. These ladies are our own secret little super group (a clue is in the name), but we’ll leave it at that.
Key lyrics: “I was in the pocket but I couldn’t lock it down. Said I’d never wait, lost the faith and lost the crown. I was in the running, didn’t see it coming or hear a sound – I lost the crown. I lost the crown.”
