The Impellers "My Certainty" album



“My Certainty” is the third album by The Impellers. With their previous releases “Robot Legs /Freestyle) and “This Is Not A Drill” /Légère/Mocambo) the band from Brighton have established themselves as a tight and authentic raw funk unit. With “My Certainty” the band - featuring vocalist Clair Witcher and composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Glenn Fallows - explore fresh territory. “We wanted this album to be different to other material we’ve produced, but still keeping the big and heavy sound which people have liked about us.  There’s a couple of reasons why we hope this album will surprise people,” Clair Witcher explains.

With “My Certainty” The Impellers have re-invented their sound.  “We were kind of recognisable but never truly bedded in and this is a significant change for album three. The current line-up has been together for over two years and we were so excited when rehearsing for the recording, it finally feels like it has all fallen into place,” Glenn Fallows recalls from the “My Certainty” sessions. “We've used different musical styles which match the stories and sentiments in each of the songs.  There's a couple of soulful ballads, some acoustic folky soul, a bit of R&B-inspired stuff.  Having said that, there's a load of influences from individual band members too, which seem to bleed through into the overall sound.” Clair Witcher adds: “For me as a vocalist, it was a great challenge to try and mirror the sentiments of the song and musicianship with my vocals.   We’re very pleased with how the album came together and we hope people agree that it’s by far our strongest work yet.”



Odessey And Oracle - Sing Our Song



Odessey And Oracle is a labour of love. A few years in the making and a couple of Légère Recordings releases later Paul Elliott and Jamie Lawrence aka JetTricks plus Mr. Mellow and Pete Rivera finally made it into the studio to cut their very first sun-drenched, joyful and forward thinking blue-eyed soul tune.

“Sing Our Song” has already been released in its electronic disguise on Rivera Rotation’s “Horsley Park” album and got to #1 on the Beaport Electronica charts, but this is the original version. Merging late Sixties British psych pop with a smiling mid Seventies Laurel Canyon groove, while adding an up-to-date pop flavour plus an irresistible chorus, “Sing Our Song” arrives in time for summer.
