MORE BANDS ANNOUNCED!!! SEE BELOW . .
Helping new and unsigned artists with all aspects of promotion and publicity since 2011.
Lately I have spent a bit of time getting to know the team behind Tilt Shift Music. When I say team - I mean one woman, a truly, magnificent Superwoman!
Kerry Turley, as well as being the company founder, is also the general manager, artist liaison officer, marketing manager, research expert, interviewer, administrator, promoter, blogger, on-call counsellor and . .. the list goes on.
So how did it all begin?
Kerry's son is Ali Ingle. Last year Ali won the Best Male Award at the Liverpool Music Awards and this year he signed a 5 album record deal with Kundun Music. Kerry basically worked tirelessly night and day, for months on end, and often into the early hours, to assist Ali in getting the recognition he deserved. She contacted everyone and anyone about his music and achieved incredible results. This is what paved the way for the foundations of Tilt Shift Music. I, for one, believe that this is the start of something big and have no doubt that it will find it's way onto the musical map of Merseyside champions.
It all started when Kerry's son Ali Ingle needed a hand promoting his debut EP release "The Man and the Monster". Kerry worked tirelessly to do what she could to get airplays on radio stations in the USA, Canada, Europe and in the UK. She also organised and instigated reviews and interviews with online magazines such as NME, Eyeplug and imusicate and online music blogs including, The Music Manual, Seven Streets and Seba Rashii Culture.
It didn't stop there! Kerry went a step further and got connected with established online media organisations including, Balcony TV, Liverpool Live TV, Bay TV, and Culture City TV adding to the expansion of Ali's social media profile. The buzz had been created, Ali was getting noticed and Kerry was hooked.
Tilt Shift Music: THE OFFICIAL LAUNCH PARTY
Thursday 20th June 2013
@ Kazimier Gardens, Liverpool
Doors: 6pm - 10pm
Entry fee: FREE
This, my good fellow citizens, is a major launch party not to be missed. Check out the line up and see for yourselves:
For starters: MERSEY BELLES
To get the party started we have the fantastic, ukulele strumming, vintage duo, audaciously known as the Mersey Belles. They have been on the scene just 4 months and have already captured the hearts and ears of the nation. They have performed at local and national festivals, vintage fairs, private parties, weddings, charity and community events, and in early Spring were invited to perform on the Billy Butler Show at BBC Radio Merseyside. To top it all off, they were recently cast for a part (as the Mersey Belles) in a major feature film set in the 1940's, which is now in pre-production.
They cover a wide range of popular hit songs from the 40's and 50's and add a twist of Mersey Belle vintage to their arrangements of contemporary pop hits such as "We Found Love".

La Banquet: LUKE, RICHARD & THOMAS
Think of this course as a mini banquet bonanza! A superb selection of tasty treats from 3 of Tilt Shift's very own artists:
Recently he has been in session on Addistock where he was filmed singing/playing various tracks including a cover of The Black Keys, "Lonely Boy" click on THIS to watch it. Nothing more to say except than he is definitely one to look out for!
Next up we have multi-talented, 20 yr old singer/songwriter Richard Francis. Relatively new to the music scene, but already making a massive impact. With Kerry behind him it wont be long before he is catapulted into the music-sphere. He sounds, pleasantly like many of my favourite artists rolled into one, but with a fresh new vibe, which is only a good thing. Have a listen for yourself and see if you know who I'm talking about:
If you like the tasty sound of Northern Soul combined with a dash of Beatle juice and a pinch of psychedelia then you should do some more research on this guy. At just 20 years old, Thomas McConnell knows exactly what he wants and has found the perfect promoter to help him get there.
He has had airplay a plenty on BBC Radio 6's Introducing Mixtape, BBC Radio Merseyside, Liver Radio, The Tom Robinson Show and has supported some of the Liverpool heavy weights including China Crisis, Ian McCullough and Ian Broudie of the Lightning Seeds. In 2012 he released his debut EP "Stop In The Shade". There is no stopping Thomas.
The Main Course: ALI INGLE
Ali Ingle (yes you read that correctly), the crem de la crem of new talent is headlining the Tilt Shift Music launch event. This is a rarity not to be missed. Ali is currently recording his debut Album at Parr St Studios and will soon be whisked off around the globe to share his fine art. This is one of those; "I wish I'd of gone to that free event when I had the chance" regrets you will have if you decide to do something else more boring instead.
As well as a great singer/songwriter, Ali Ingle is also a dab hand at producing fantastic D.I.Y music videos that capture the essence of some awesome childhood memories. This "Tornado" is about to cause a massive storm!
And for Dessert: THE SWAPSIES
What better way to top it all off! The Swapsies, of Lovelypool brilliance, will bring their freshly baked, sugar infused Indie-pop creations to the garden stage as the icing on the cake! They hit the Liverpool music scene last summer supporting Allo Darlin on their UK tour and at the Used Vinyl Club series, both of which awarded them some rave reviews in Peter Guy's Merseyblog and Bido Lito (Issue 27, p36). The Swapsies have so far produced two free Mp3 debut tracks ("You're My Maillot Jaune" & "Hey There You" which have been spun frequently on the Dave Monks BBC Introducing Show (BBC Radio Merseyside) and rumour has it that they will be releasing their first single this summer on USA based indie label "Manic Pop! Records".
As if that wasn't neat enough - they will also be introducing you to something new to do on the grassy playing fields of your local parks! Intrigued? All will be revealed very soon. But for now:
There will also be a few other guest appearances (TBC) and there is one extra, rather exciting, "thing" happening at the Tilt Shift Launch event but I have been sworn to secrecy - so I cannot say what it is. It's out of this world - that much I can say. Guess you'll just have to come along and see for yourself. You will not be disappointed!! The Kaz kitchen will be open so you can eat your tea there too!
