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.
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!
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!
Can you believe that it’s new music Friday again already? Where does the time go? This time last week I was talking to you about Bandcamp Friday and me releasing the video for Blood Red Valentine. Was that really one week ago?
This week I have another video from my latest release, Condor Leader. This one is a lyric video for track 4, Swan Song.
This is the radio friendly version. If you’d like to see the EXPLICIT cut, then you’ll need to click the link below and sign in to YouTube. For anyone who doesn’t like my favourite swearword beginning with the letter ‘c’, then I recommend not listening to this version!
I’d like to end by giving a shout out to everyone going to (and is already at) Bloodstock. I hope you have a brilliant weekend and come back safe and properly rocked out. If you come home feeling like a million dollars with the energy of Zeberdee, then you’ve done the weekend totally wrong!
If like myself, you’re not at Bloodstock this weekend. Then have a fantastic weekend all the same.
Hello, once again it’s New Music Friday. I’ve got a double-whammy for you today too!
First of all, Bandcamp are waiving their fees from anything bought on the site today. So, if you’ve been pondering buying a Limited Edition, signed CD copy my latest release, Condor Leader. Today is the day to do it!
What’s more, if you use the following discount code you’ll get 25% off any purchase you make on my Bandcamp page. Simply enter the code “newmusic” when you go to checkout.
The second part of the double-whammy is the lyric video for Blood Red Valentine is now live. You can watch it here but it’d be great if you’d also go ahead and subscribe to my YouTube channel, like the video and leave me a comment letting me know what you thought. It really does go a long way in helping raise my profile!
Well, that’s all for now but as always, have a great weekend!
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.
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!
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. 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!
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!
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.
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.
