In this page I'll be guiding you through some great artists in many different genres, you're bound to find something you like. There will be many pages that follow but this one is just for Indie to Light Rock groups.

Newton Faulkner

Brief Bio
The first artist I'll be showing you is Newton Faulkner. A young graduate from the Academy of Contemporary Music, Faulkner brings a bright cheerful acoustic sound to the indie scene. Unlike many other artists following in the shadow of Jack Johnson this one has great instrumental talent as well as a genuinely unique vocal sound.

Recommended Tracks
1. Feels like home
2. Dream Catch Me
3. Straight Towards the Sun

Perfect for... rainy Sundays

The Kooks

Brief Bio
The Kooks have taken Europe by storm and are probably one of the more popular groups in my list but they started off as students at the Brighton Institute of Modern Music in 2003. They took their name from the David Bowie song "Kooks" and ever since their first real album Inside In/Inside Out (2006-2007) they have taken off. They have a light rock pop sound that's just like a refreshing drink amidst the heavier rock.

Recommended Tracks
1. Sofa Song
2. Matchbox
3. Naïve

Perfect for... get-togethers

Say Anything

Brief Bio
Say anything is described as an indie rock band it has punk rock influences. The front-man Max Bemis had many problems with drug use and during the release of his first album with the band he admitted to heavy marijuana use. Nevertheless the band and the Max recovered and managed to create a strangely frank and unique sound, armed with lyrical wit and satire.

Recommended Tracks
1. Alive With The Glory of Love
2. Admit it!!!
3. A Walk Through Hell
4. I Want To Know Your Plans
