Once again Ali Ingle has proved his pedigree as one of the UK's most promising singer songwriters with the release of his delightfully retrospective new single Saintly and we're delighted to be giving it an exclusive premiere here on Ralph's Life.

"I'm really proud to exclusively show you my debut video release with Coconut Creatives They are a cool bunch of people who together make up a London based creative content agency."









No 2: Wozniak


Edinburgh shoegazers Wozniak head south for a handful of shows in the next few weeks, touring their debut album Courage Reels

The band have teamed up with Ralph's favourites Goodsouls Promotions to put together the dates in London, Brighton (in conjunction with Acid Box Promotions), Leeds and Salford. Other than in London, this will be their debut in each of these places. Live, Wozniak are loud, intense and powerful. 











No automatic alt text available.Enamel Animal self-released a debut album, Unfaith, which was released in February 2017 to critical acclaim in underground rock/metal circles, leading them to their recent signing with Holier Than Thou Records

Enamel Animal remain close to their roots, and continue to hone their art by the riverbank in the city they love, allegedly drinking tea and whiling away the hours until the end of the world.No automatic alt text available.









No 4: Culann

Culann are long time Ralph's Life favourites after not only donating a track for the Ralph's Life CD for Rethink Mental Illness but travelling down to London to play the CD's launch night in the capital's iconic venue Proud Camden.
The Culann journey has seen them play The BarrowlandsKing Tuts 13 times, Wickerman Festival, Tiree Music Festival, GoNorth & Celtic Park, home of Celtic Football Club.












No 5: Mower

Ralph's ears pricked up at the end of last year with the news that Blur-ite (see what I did there) Graham Coxon's favourites Mower were back on the scene after a 12 year hiatus.

Signed to the Blur guitarist’s Transcopic label in 2001, Mower released their Coxon-produced debut album to critical acclaim, lead single Na making it as NME’s Single of the Week. 










No 6: SONS

Zealot Artwok Bambi resize.jpg
Brighton's SONS release Zealot is arguably their biggest, most mainstream track to date.

First two Singles, Reptiles and A Love Song? have both done exceptionally well with everyone from Radio X to BBC Intro and of course Ralph on Radio KC heaping praise plus repeat spins on brothers Lee and Nick.
Zealot is hailed by SONS as "a song for the times, a scream to engage with the desire for change. A potent and powerful commercial blast that hits your heart and your head with SONS typical uncompromising venom."








No 7: Equinox


Image may contain: tree, sky, plant, outdoor and nature
Ralph covered the book release by the mysterious Yorkshire poet Equinox last year with the promise that an album featuring works from the book would appear featuring collaborations with a range of musicians.

Well that time has come to pass as It's Hard To Be Happy When Your Head Is Full Of Sin is now available in digital and CD formats. 











No 8Guide Dog



With a name like Guide Dog, how could Ralph resist checking out their first single I Am The Daddy which is the debut release from their Lovely Domestic Bliss album. 

The tale (or should that be tail) of Guide Dog is many-fold and intriguing and unfolds thus...













No 9: The Moods

Image may contain: text
Ralph has been featuring the Blackthorn Festival on the blog recently due to the fact that it's near Manchester and probably the best value for money small festival in the UK.

We've also been singling out a few Manchester bands for some special attention and today it's The Moods turn.












No 10: WildCohen



With experience often comes excellence and that's certainly the case with Sheffield duo of Jody Wildgoose and Rob Cohen who have come together; combining their individual experience, to create the excellent WildCohen, releasing their BloochyKoo album in the process.


The album; released on indie label Spoonjuice Records, is a psychedelic gem in the form of an old school concept album.
