Logan J. Parker is a singer songwriter living in London but originally from Portugal. Logan is also a producer, pianist and guitarist with sound steeped in 60's rock n' roll, soul and blues. She is also a part of the musical wing of Extinction Rebellion. Her influences include T Bone Walker, Amy Winehouse and Leonard Cohen. Whilst working in a bank job that she hated, Logan had a health scare which showed her that life is short and time can't be wasted doing something you hate so that's when her musical journey began. In 2016 she moved to London to compose her own music which she recorded in a fully solar powered studio and through her own independent company meaning that she owns all of the copyright to her music. In late 2019 Logan released her self titled debut EP. She recently released a single from that EP called "Cry Cry Cry".
Watch the video for "Cry Cry Cry" here:
"Cry Cry Cry" is a bluesy jazz number. It's got a cool swinging beat and Logan's vocals are unique and inviting. The song has a feel good nature to it and demands that you dance along. Of the song, Logan says “I wrote this song out of my deepest sadness for being a musician and being in a constant struggle for survival.”

Saturday night saw the return of Just Mustard to their home town of Dundalk. The five piece rock group are fresh off the back of a support slot on Fontaines D.C.'s recent tour. This sold out show was rescheduled from January and to say the crowd were hyped up and frothing at the mouth for this one would be an understatement. At exactly 10pm, the crowd got what they wanted. The music was turned off and the lights went out. The excitement that had been bubbling all evening came to the top as Katie, David, Mete, Shane and Rob walked on stage. The band launched straight into "23", "Early" and "Mirrors" which are all taken from their recently released second album "Heart Under". Then came the crowd pleasing "Deaf" which features the now iconic moment when David Noonan sings about the money monkey man before letting out a guttural scream. "Seven" was next followed by "Sore". It was around this point that Shane Magui
Cloakroom Q. are an art rock, neo psychedelic band from the bowels of Newry, now based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The 5 piece band have impressed with their Going For A Walk And I'm Not Coming Back EP back in 2018 before unleashing another brilliant single Leave Me At Lusk in 2019. Now they return with their latest single Nowhere To Spit. Listen to a snippet here: Nowhere To Spit begins with an almost meditative guitar picking masterclass and quite frankly that could have been the whole song and I would be raving about it. It doesn't end there though and morphs into a completely different song which transcends many different genres all of which sound excellent. The shouty bits, mixed with some jazz and brass sections combine to make for another Cloakroom Q. song that you can't stop listening to.
