NHMM is a new label out of powerhouse independent publisher, Notting Hill Music, with more than 300 Top 40 hit singles (Beyonce, Calvin Harris, Little Mix, Kygo, Robbie Williams, Britney Spears, Justin Bieber).
To say the last year has been a rollercoaster for Kaci Brown & Sam Gray would be something of an understatement. Since the release of their debut single, “Top Down” the Anglo-US duo have barely had time to draw breath. The single was initially championed as a Highway Find on the biggest national country music station in the US, Sirius XM’s The Highway, and has gone on to receive over 1,000 plays on the station as well as thousands more spins across the country music airwaves from a host of stations all over America. They were then featured in Rolling Stone’s Top 10 Country Artists to watch in 2018 which brought an agency deal with William Morris Endeavor in Nashville leading to more than 30 festival shows including Stagecoach & Faster Horses amongst many others. Their success started to spread back across the Atlantic in the Spring when BBC Radio 2 added the record to their playlist for a month with the song reaching the Top 10 most played on the station.
Then a funny thing happened… a club remix package catapulted the song into the Top 10 of the UK Dance Charts and one of those mixes was picked up by Radio Disney and added to their main playlist, receiving more than 280 spins on the national station. At the same time, Sirius XM’s Hits 1 added the single to its playlist in July 2018 and it has now garnered more than 320 plays on the biggest pop station in the country. The single spent a month in the Top 40 airplay chart on Billboard some 15 months after its original release -10 million streams, 40,000 iTunes downloads and millions of YouTube views later…….
Brown & Gray’s new single “Last To Know” promises to take their rise to new heights with its sophisticated sound evoking the best of Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles but with the benefit of thoroughly modern-day production.
British garage-rock four piece Saint Agnes have unveiled their explosive new single 'Welcome To Silvertown', the title track to their eagerly-awaited debut album - out May 3rd via NHMM, LLC & Death Or Glory Gang Records.
Kicking into life in 2016 with two sold-out 7" singles, Saint Agnes have barely been home since. Clocking up 120 shows playing to anyone who was brave enough to listen, from punk shows in Manchester to dive bars in Italy. The four-piece have drawn musical comparisons as disparate as Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Lana Del Ray and The Stooges.
Saint Agnes' music is anchored around the front pairing of Kitty (Vocals, Guitar, Keys) and Jon (Vocals, Guitars, Harmonica) who trade tormented tales full of lamentation, love and loathing over the thunderous rhythms of Ben (Bass) and Andy (Drums).
Self-produced, and engineered by Luke Oldfield (The Wytches, Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats), the recordings capture the true rebel heart and energy of the band. Welcome To Silvertown is an album that is musically unshackled and an accurate snapshot of the band's ferocious intensity, fusing the menacing frenzy of rock with a dark, cinematic flare. Born in a dingy sub-zero flat, the album is rife with themes of wild fantasy, escapism, emotional fragility and the inside-outs of living in East London's district of Silvertown

The first thing you notice when listening to Mark McGowan is the power and timbre of his neo-Soul voice. A voice that keeps one ear firmly in working class Glasgow, yet transports the other to the Greenwich Village folk scene of the early 60's. McGowan’s intricate picking style and storytelling developed from an early age and became the tools for him to express himself.
This year, Mark McGowan signed to NHMM, LLC, a hot new label out of powerhouse publisher Notting Hill Music, and released his sophomore EP, "Speakeasy", on the 30th of November. Mark McGowan's versatility shines across the 4-song collection. From the subtle sensitivity of "Betty" and the rousing momentum of "Bones", to the emotional storytelling of "Roles Reversed" and the grizzly vibrance of the title track, "Speakeasy", Mark channels a thoughtfulness and depth beyond his years.

Emerging Los Angeles-based pop/rock singer KP Wolfe releases her eagerly anticipated debut EP on July 20th. Described as “defiant and inspirational... a veritable battle cry for those who yearn for freedom, for purpose and for happiness”, ‘Exodus’ combines raw power and passion with a gut-spilling stage presence and announces that rock music has truly found a new voice.
For the new record, KP has collaborated with 7-time Grammy-nominated songwriter/producer Lauren Christy (Avril Lavigne, Jason Mraz, Bebe Rexha, Rihanna) and multi-platinum producer Adrian Newman (Hedley, Boa, Sabrina Carpenter).
The trio of songs introduces us to a singer who embraces raw naked emotion with a vocal full of fire and fury that few could match. It's no wonder she was chosen to portray The Pearl in the stage musical of the iconic rock, soul and blues singer Janis Joplin, performances that were universally critically acclaimed.
The title track, ‘Exodus’, allows KP to channel some of that ‘fire and fury’ that was so evident in her stage role, a song that claims emotional independence from those in life who would wish to restrict your life choices and creative expression.
KP is rightly proud of the songs on her debut EP, none more than ‘The Other Woman’, where she displays both empathy and solidarity with her female audience. As KP says, ‘the song is about repentance, but turns into a plea for forgiveness and a vow to work together as women and not tear each other down’.
For KP the most challenging song on the EP is ‘Take Back The Ring’, where she is left both physically and emotionally ‘exhausted’, yet by singing, is provided with the necessary catharsis to release her from the pain of the lyric. A defining example, if one were needed, that these songs come straight from the heart and that KP Wolfe is the real deal.
“Top Down”, the collaboration between Kaci Brown and Sam Gray, is a true classic in the making. A timeless anthem, this song sounds like driving down the Pacific Coast Highway with the convertible top down, living in the moment.
