Swan Song (Radio Edit) Releasing Everywhere on 26/11/2021

Hello you, it’s been a few weeks since we last spoke! Well, the reason for my lack of content is not because I’ve been slack. In fact, there’s a lot been going on behind the scenes. A hell of a lot indeed.

I have been busy beavering away (stop sniggering, it’s not that kind of beavering) creating new music and working on content for my YouTube channel. I’ll start drip-feeding all that content soon, so make sure that you’re following my social channels because things are going to go a little crazy during 2022!

Meanwhile, Condor Leader has done way better than I ever expected. Thank you so much for getting behind this release. However, even though I’ve got brand new music coming from April 2022 I’m not done milking the Condor Leader material just yet.

A lot of people seemed to really dig the track “Swan Song” but were not able to stream it in certain situations due to the rather vulgar language I use in it. Well, there is a radio-friendly version available on Bandcamp but that doesn’t help anyone wanting to add it into their own Spotify playlists.

I’ve heard you guys and I’m doing something about it. To that end, I’m releasing “Swan Song (Radio Edit)” on all major streaming platforms on 26th November 2021. You can pre-save/pre-order the track now by clicking the link or on the new single cover art below.

I really want to tell you loads more about what I’m cooking up but that will have to wait for another time.

That’s all for now but please have an awesome Halloween weekend, be safe and look after yourself and others. Stick to the bars and clubs running the “Ask for Angela” scheme and have fun.

Two Videos for the Price of One (That’s FREE to You)!

Last week I mentioned that I had a little surprise coming this week. It is only a very little surprise and (an admittedly lazy one at that) but here it is! Two videos this week.

Now, they’re not exactly new but rather alternative versions. In particular, these are the explicit lyric versions of both Swan Song and Back Home and Sober (hence the slightly ‘lazy’ surprise).

Here are the videos. You’ll probably need to log in to YouTube and view them on the YouTube site, as they are age-restricted, due to the explicit language!

The EXPLICIT version of Swan Song

The EXPLICIT version of Back Home and Sober

I have another video dropping on YouTube on Sunday. This is a very personal video and I questioned myself a lot about making it. Basically, it’s a big confessional about where my life was 20 years ago and if you remember what happened 20 years ago this month, then you’ll have an idea about what I’ll be talking about in this video.

I won’t be making a big song and dance about it, so if you think that you’d like to watch then make sure you’re subscribed to my YouTube channel and you hit the bell to be notified. Remember, subscribing to a YouTube channel is totally free!

Things will quiet down a bit from me for a little while now, as heading into the winter, I’ll be concentrating on creating more music. I’ve almost finished the writing process for a new, full album that will be leaning more towards the heavier side of my music.

If you’d like to get behind-the-scenes access to what’s going on with this album, then you can join the Rebel Support Team for £5 a month on Buy Me A Coffee.

For now though, have a brilliant weekend and enjoy yourself!

Final Video From Condor Leader Out Today!

It’s Friday and that means it’s time for some new music! Today see’s the launch of the final video from my latest release, Condor Leader. Unfortunately, that means that there’s not a lot of YouTube content left for the time-being. Although, there will be a surprise video next week!

Check out the video for Condor:

It’s another festival weekend, so to anyone going to the fantastic Stonedead Festival, please have an awesome weekend!

Anyone out in Nottingham this weekend? I might be propping up a bar or two, most probably Foremans Bar. So, if you want to buy a hard working musician a drink, you know where to find me!

I’m Back Home and Sober for New Music Friday!

What a week it’s been. There’s been some huge news stories this week and none of them are uplifting (whenever is the news uplifting)? It seems that the Four Horsemen are riding and the world is burning.

So, what do I plan to do about it? Well, this weekend I’m planning to get absolutely f*cked and bury my head in the sand over everything! I know this is a bad idea but you know what, it’s been a long time coming and I need to let off some steam.

So, come the following morning my New Music Friday release will seem very apt indeed. This week, I introduce to you my lyric video for Back Home and Sober. A track all about going out and getting wasted and waking up trying to remember what happened.

Check it out here:

So, what are you up to this weekend? Will you be joining me in getting totally f*cked up? Or are you being sensible and having a chilled one (nothing wrong with that at all by the way, in fact I envy you, I just really need a good night out).

Whatever you’re up to, please stay safe and have a f*cking fantastic weekend!

Condor Leader Music Videos

It’s New Music Friday again! Last week, as you may already know, I released Condor Leader. To go alongside that release I also launched the official music video for Whisky Man.

Today I’ve released another video from Condor Leader, this time it’s a lyric video for Stop the Silence.

Going forward I’ll be releasing one lyric video per week, every Friday. All the way until I get to the final track from Condor Leader, Condor!

I hope you enjoy these videos and have a great weekend!

Condor Leader, Out Now!

My latest release, Condor Leader has taken flight!

Today is the day! Condor Leader, my 6 track LP is out on general release. I am so happy to be sharing this music with you. Recording during lockdown has been difficult. Recording with a 13 year old computer running obsolete software has been difficult, too! And yet, here we are on Friday 23rd July 2021 and I’m releasing a record.

It’s a record with kudos too! I am thrilled that Planet Mosh gave it 5 stars. Five stars! That was beyond my wildest dreams. Thank you.

Alongside all of the tracks being available to stream and download via all major services, it is also available on Bandcamp as a Limited Edition CD.

A massive thank you to everyone who has already pre-ordered Condor Leader through my Bandcamp page. The digital download will be available for the foreseeable future but, there’s only 100 of the Limited Edition signed CDs and they’re already half gone! If you want one, then you’d better be quick!

To celebrate the release, here’s a music video for Whisky Man that I made at home (yes, at home with a cheap-ass green screen). Lyric videos for the other tracks will follow in the coming weeks but for now, here’s the official Whisky Man music video!

Have a great weekend!

1 Week Until Condor Leader is Released!

My latest release, Condor Leader takes flight one week today!

A massive thank you to everyone who has already pre-ordered my 5-star release through my Bandcamp page.

3 Weeks Until Condor Leader is Released

The countdown is on. Three weeks today Condor Leader, my upcoming mini-album that PlanetMosh gave 5-stars, will be released!

I’m getting rather excited about it. Can you tell? The glowing feedback that I’ve received so far has really got me buzzing. I can’t believe that this little album that I recorded on a 13 year-old computer, running obsolete software has been so well received by critics.

It’s a testament to the fact that anyone can make good music from their own bedroom, without having the huge overheads of recording in a studio. If I can do it, then so can you too!

If you’d like to hear what all the fuss is about, then you can listen to the lead track “Whisky Man” now on my Bandcamp page. You’ll also be able to pre-order it for £5 from here too. Better still, for £10 why not bag yourself a hand-numbered, Limited Edition CD? It also comes with a digital download that will be available from the moment Condor Leader is released on 23rd July. Be quick though, as they’re already half gone!

If you have Spotify, you can pre-save Condor Leader by clicking the “Spotify Pre-Save” button above.

Have a great weekend!

PlanetMosh gives Condor Leader 5 Stars!

Dazzle Rebel is not a rebel without a cause but with one due to the songwriting suss of Condor Leader.

Dennis Jarman – PlanetMosh

The first review for my upcoming release, Condor Leader is in and it’s a 5-Star review!

Dennis Jarman of PlanetMosh waxed lyrical about Condor Leader in the first review of Condor Leader. Stating that “Whisky Man has a feel good groove that flows with a cool as f**k vibe that brings to mind the Smooth era of Santana”.

His enthusiasm spills over to ‘Stop The Silence’ and then calls me out for my main influence on ‘Blood Red Valentine’ stating “‘Blood Red Valentine’ throbs on bass lines like ‘Psycho Killer”. Guilty as charged, sorry-not-sorry!

‘Swan Song’ and ‘Back Home and Sober’ get glowing praise before he rounds off the review with title track ‘Condor’, stating “the spotlight is stolen by an earworm guitar solo”. Something that I have to admit that I’m rather proud of, as I do try to make my guitar solos memorable.

 ‘Whiskey Man’ has a feel good groove that flows with a cool as f**k vibe that brings to mind the Smooth era of Santana.

So, a huge thank you to Dennis Jarman and PlanetMosh for giving Condor Leader such an amazing review. Please, go on and take a read for yourself by visiting https://planetmosh.com/dazzle-rebel-condor-leader/.

Condor Leader is available to pre-order now from www.dazzlerebel.bandcamp.com with the digital version available for £5 and a hand-numbered, Limited Edition CD, which also comes with a digital copy for £10. It will be released on 23rd July 2021 on all major digital platforms. If you’re on Spotify you can pre-save Condor Leader now by clicking this link https://show.co/sIH7b26.
