Tebbutt, who relocated to Sweden to live, work and write music for two years, has returned to his Australian homeland with a stunning EP that's gaining momentum both north and south of the equator. I caught up with him to find out more.
It's crazy to think my Voice journey started nearly seven months ago and here it's over in two weeks and in screen time all of 15 minutes. I've known the outcome of the battle for months now and it's been a long wait to finally see what happened that night, my memory was all a blur.
A solid 4/5 for their new album and launch gig at The Fighting Cocks - their tour which starts very soon is likely to be one of their best yet, definitely a band worth following if you aren't already.
The idea that fur is springing into fashion again is absurd, even though that's the line the fur trade has tried to sell to reporters for more than a decade. You may see more fur on the catwalk, but that's because fur is so cheap that furriers have resorted to paying designers to use it. Its presence on the catwalk does not reflect what people are wearing on the high street.
We may not know where the future of British music theatre lies or what it looks like, but in order for there to be a meaningful future this kind of broad exploration is essential.
Take a look at the UK album charts and it's there for all to see. Out of the top twenty albums, 14 of them are all male bands. Out of the six remaining acts three are solo female singers and the other three are male bands fronted by a female singer. So, here we are in 2014 and there is not one all-girl band in the top 20 album charts.
I don't do mornings. They remind me of being late for the call center and of running for buses, I was fated to miss. However, David was calling with good news, which stirred me from me from my slumbers. "Your album is bloody top five, Jon". Words I doubted I'd ever hear.
What makes music so important to the aspiration of living well with dementia? To put it simply, music transcends dementia. Living with most forms of dementia, even in the latter stages, doesn't affect a person's ability to enjoy music, follow it and contribute to its creation.
Let's be clear, the man wearing the pendant, as part of the story plot in the music video, disintegrated. The pendant was not the target. Even the accusation that it could be covert targeting really does not convince. It was a fashion accessory, albeit a poor choice for an ancient Egyptian video shoot where Arabic was not even the language of the times being depicted.
You may have failed to notice that nestling between twitter-revived James Blunt and self-duet king Gary Barlow in last week's UK album charts were two acts whose albums you're unlikely to find sweeping through supermarkets anytime soon: Bombay Bicycle Club - last week's No.1, down to No.8 - and the week's second highest new entry, Temples, in at No.7.
Last Wednesday's Brit Awards saw the great and the good pay tribute to the UK's finest musical talent. From David Bowie to Laura Mvula, the Arctic Monkeys to One Direction, the 2014 nominees demonstrate the incredible diversity that exists across the British music scene today...
I could be wrong, but in another world, where John Lennon wasn't murdered and George didn't die, would The Beatles have ever got back together? Lennon and McCartney had become friends again, but George was still the dark horse. You know the multi-million dollar offers would've been on the table, but you know what? I don't think George would've done it.
Just before the first anniversary of her death, I found myself in Delhi with fellow filmmaker Bruno Acard making a music video in English and Hindi of a song inspired by these tragic events entitled Shine a Light and Navjyoti ki Oar.
One week ago yesterday we started our tour across Germany with Ryan Sheridan and his band. The time has gone so fast, and there are still two full weeks to go. The highlight of the tour so far has to be the two days we spent in Osnabrück.
The UK premiere of Pixar in Concert at the Royal Albert Hall brought an audience from all walks of life and those timeless scores to magical life, with a show combining stunning footage from all 13 Pixar films (which have all been written by just four composers!).
The album is called 'Thirty Two' for a variety of reasons. Firstly I wanted to scupper Adele's chances of using the title when she grows up. Secondly thirty-two is my Dad's number of choice when he puts the lottery numbers on.
