Day 21: James Edan | #HITSBC17




Hey guys!

Day 21.
That's three weeks of exclusive performances so far.
Sounds a bit crazy, doesn't it?

It always blows my mind to see how many talented musicians are excited to join us for this and, clearly, I've been in this state of over-excitement for three weeks now.
It's like having had too much coffee for three weeks straight.
I'm not sure how I feel about that.

However, I'm super excited, ha ha, for today's performance!
Check it out!


What is #HITSBC17?
HITSBC17 stands for house in the sand's Birthday Countdown 2017.
Throughout the entire month of February, we are going to celebrate house in the sand's fifth birthday.
(Because why celebrate on one day, if you can celebrate for an entire month, right?)
With the support from some of the finest artists and bands around, each day in February will be filled with an exclusive performance just for us.

Who is performing today?
James Edan.
He is a singer/songwriter from Glasgow, Scotland.
James is one half of house in the sand's favourite duo, Martin and James.
With the band being on a break, both individuals are now making music on their own.

James' influences vary from intensity of Bruce Springsteen, to Simon and Garfunkel's handcrafted songs, to the Spice Girls and their catchy pop vibes.

His own sound blends Rock, Pop and Folk - in the charming acoustic manner, as well as with big compositions.

His recently released EP "Flying Solo" showcases his strong and expressive voice and his writing skills.

What needs to be said about this performance?
It's another premiere of a new song! We love those exclusives over here on HITS and are absolutely stoked for you to watch this one.
James just knows how to craft a great song and this one is no exception.

Alright, now here we go - check out James performing his new song "Pretty Life" for us.

Day 20: Mark Mathews | #HITSBC17




Hey guys!

I remember when I first got the rough idea of starting this countdown,
I thought I wouldn't be able to find enough acts to take part in it - but I did.
And after the first year of hosting this event, I knew it was going to be a returning project.

And I am so glad that it now is something we can look forward to each year.

We're not even done with this year's countdown and I already can't wait for next year.
Guess that's a good sign, right?

Alright, let's check out day 20!


What is #HITSBC17?
HITSBC17 stands for house in the sand's Birthday Countdown 2017.
Throughout the entire month of February, we are going to celebrate house in the sand's fifth birthday.
(Because why celebrate on one day, if you can celebrate for an entire month, right?)
With the support from some of the finest artists and bands around, each day in February will be filled with an exclusive performance just for us.

Who is performing today?
Mark Mathews.
He is a singer/songwriter from London, UK.
He's been around since 2006 and is going stronger than ever.

Influenced by the legends such as The Beatles, The Kinks and Ryan Adams; Mark's sound is a mixture of folk and indie-pop.

You can catch Mark playing his way through London and the rest of the UK pretty much all the time.
With three EPs and one album out, he's got enough material to showcase his musical variety.

He's not planning on stopping any time soon and has a special project going on at the moment.
He has set himself the goal to release one new single every month throughout 2017.

That being quite a challenge on its own, the musician has gone even further and has decided to change up his writing process.
Instead of starting every song on a guitar and taking it from there, Mark has challenged himself to write on different instruments, approaching every song in a different way.
 
What needs to be said about this performance?
It's a new song! You know we love a premiere over here on HITS, so getting a first listen to one of our favourite acts, is a perfect birthday present - especially when it's as beautiful as this one!
You're in for a treat!

Ladies and lads, check out Mark's performance of his new song "Dying To Stay Alive".

Who deserves a thank you?

Day 19: Martin Kelly | #HITSBC17




Hey guys!

A little less than five years ago I approached the first band to work with.
I had absolutely no idea of the music industry and I had absolutely no idea what to expect.

I did my first ever email interview with one of my favourite bands and that was when the music journalism bug bit me.
Luck was on my side and I soon realised I had asked the perfect band to work with - they made my job so easy and nothing has changed about that over the past few years.

I'd like to think that the first interaction sort of sets the scene, so thankfully it all worked out super well.

Fun fact - one member of that band is here to celebrate with us today!


What is #HITSBC17?
HITSBC17 stands for house in the sand's Birthday Countdown 2017.
Throughout the entire month of February, we are going to celebrate house in the sand's fifth birthday.
(Because why celebrate on one day, if you can celebrate for an entire month, right?)
With the support from some of the finest artists and bands around, each day in February will be filled with an exclusive performance just for us.

Who is performing today?
Martin Kelly.
He is a musician from Scotland, now based in Berlin, Germany.
A lot of you know Martin from the Scottish duo Martin and James who are currently on a break.

Ever since the band things slowed down, Martin has been writing and recording on his own.
His first tour and support tour with Noah Guthrie went down a treat and allowed him to get his music heard.
The musician is currently mixing his upcoming EP whilst playing gigs here and there.

What needs to be said about this performance?
It's a new song which you'll find on the upcoming EP. As per usual, we are super excited to share this with you. We recommend grabbing a cup of tea, a few biscuits of your choice and finding a comfortable spot on the couch before you start watching the video.

Comfy? Good! Here we go, check out Martin's performance of his song "Match Already Burned".

Day 18: Dylan Cassin | #HITSBC17




Hey guys!

Thanks to house in the sand, I have found myself in some of the coolest situations;
interviewing my favourite bands and artists, working in a recording studio,
running into Ed Sheeran backstage.
And I'm very aware of all those amazing memories I get to create.

I got to befriend a bunch of people I met through running this website and the memories I have with those people are hilarious and bizarre.
For example, today's artist once made me fall off a seesaw and then almost knocked me out with said seesaw. (Accidentally of course... at least that's what he said.)
I feel like it's stories like this one, which make house in the sand the most random thing we could've created.

Alright, let's not go down memory lane any further and actually listen to some music, yeah?


What is #HITSBC17?
HITSBC17 stands for house in the sand's Birthday Countdown 2017.
Throughout the entire month of February, we are going to celebrate house in the sand's fifth birthday.
(Because why celebrate on one day, if you can celebrate for an entire month, right?)
With the support from some of the finest artists and bands around, each day in February will be filled with an exclusive performance just for us.

Who is performing today?
Dylan Cassin.
He is singer/songwriter from Liverpool, UK.
His sound is walking on the fine line between Acoustic and Pop-Rock before settling down for Alternative.

Dylan played lead guitar and sang backing vocals in house in the sand's favourite band - The Arkanes.
After the band split up, Dylan just couldn't stop making music and soon headed out into the industry on his own.
He has been gigging in and around Liverpool, appeared on our favourite radio show (The Liam McClair show on Reform Radio) and is constantly writing new material. 

What needs to be said about this performance?
We get to hear another one of Dylan's solo songs.
This performance highlights his singer and songwriter qualities and why we're glad he is still making music. To say it like the hip people say - it's a tuuuuuuuune.

Alright, ladies and gentlemen - check out Dylan's fabulous performance of his song "Falling".





Where can we find Dylan Cassin online?
Twitter | Facebook | Soundcloud | YouTube | Instagram

Who deserves a thank you?
Dylan himself for recording the video (even though it was last minute and drove me insane) and for showing support whenever it's needed. I appreciate it.

Day 17: Ben Barritt | #HITSBC17




Hey guys!

Whilst it's super exciting to welcome all these new faces to the countdown, it's also extremely wonderful to have friends of HITS get involved again.

Every year when I message everyone to invite them to join us, we all have a collective "can't believe it's been another year" moment and I couldn't enjoy that more if I tried.

So yeah, it's been another year and we're all here again, celebrating another year of fantastic music with everyone on house in the sand.

Ready for day 17?


What is #HITSBC17?
HITSBC17 stands for house in the sand's Birthday Countdown 2017.
Throughout the entire month of February, we are going to celebrate house in the sand's fifth birthday.
(Because why celebrate on one day, if you can celebrate for an entire month, right?)
With the support from some of the finest artists and bands around, each day in February will be filled with an exclusive performance just for us.

Who is performing today?
Ben Barritt.
He is singer/songwriter/guitarist from London, UK based in Berlin, Germany.
His sound blends an impressive amount of genres; from soft and calm acoustic tunes, to folky rhythms to souly jazz songs with sprinkles of rock and r'n'b.

Originally being from London, England, a lot of his songs tell stories about the little things at home: walking through the dark streets on the way back from the pub or using the London underground to see the person you love.

A few of those stories can be found on Ben's EP "Sundial", and even more of those stories are told on his debut album "What Would You Like To Leave Behind?".
You can usually find Ben gigging with his band.

What needs to be said about this performance?
It's a super calming performance which is p e r f e c t  for you, if you had a stressful day.
You'll find yourself relaxing and focusing on the song which is delivered in such comforting manner.
Whether you're familiar with Ben's sound or not, you'll dig this!

Here we go, check out Ben's performance of his song "Keep It Coming" and enjoy!

Day 16: Robbie Cavanagh | #HITSBC17




Hey guys!

One thing that really excites me about this countdown, is that I get to share some of my favourite music with you.
And sure, that's what I do all year long by running this blog, but with our Birthday Countdown, it's a lot more personal.

It is so nice to have this bunch of talented musicians involved and working with them is such a wonderful opportunity.

Alright, before I get too cheesy, let's just check out day 16!


What is #HITSBC17?
HITSBC17 stands for house in the sand's Birthday Countdown 2017.

With the support from some of the finest artists and bands around, each day in February will be filled with an exclusive performance just for us.

Who is performing today?
Robbie Cavanagh.
He is a singer/songwriter from Manchester, UK.
Robbie's music can be genrefied as Acoustic, Folk as most of his songs are guitar and vocal based - yet there's more to him than that.

His album "The State Of Maine" consists of handcrafted, storytelling and relatable songs presented as interesting and lively tracks.

The musician keeps releasing fantastic songs as well as touching music videos and is gigging his way through the UK.
His upcoming single "Godsend" will be released on February 24th, so stay tuned for that.

What needs to be said about this performance?
It showcases all the elements which make Robbie such an exciting artist; personal lyrics, a beautiful melody, handcraft writing and a warm and expressive voice.
I am super convinced that you'll appreciate this song for all the obvious reasons.

Ladies and Gents - check out Robbie's fantastically passionate performance of his song "Fool".

Day 15: The Lunar Year | #HITSBC17




Hey guys!

So far we have already had the chance to showcase multiple genres, multiple setups and multiple moods on this countdown.
We've got songs that are perfect for a relaxed Sunday afternoon,
songs you want to dance to,
and songs that are absolutely touching.

Today's song falls into the latter category and I cannot wait for you to check it out.


What is #HITSBC17?
HITSBC17 stands for house in the sand's Birthday Countdown 2017.

Who is performing today?
The Lunar Year.
They are an indie-rock band from Philadelphia, USA.

In the band are:
Katie Burke (vocals, piano)
Steve Heine (guitar, vocals)
Zach McCaw (bass)
Kevin Walker (drums)

The origins of the band's sound can be traced back to singer&songwriter Katie's childhood, which was shaped by multiple acts and genres.
With a love for The Beatles, Billy Joel and The Beach Boys, but also a huge interest in the Classical and Romantic era, the band's style is very open minded.

You'll find honest and personal lyrics, as well as relatable stories in The Lunar Year's repertoire.

Their most recent single "Porcelain" hit over 100,000 streams on Spotify.

What needs to be said about this performance?
It's one of the most stunning songs I've heard in a while.
I am in absolute awe with Katie's voice and get goosebumps every single time I listen to this. 100% sure you are going to enjoy this one as much as I do.

I hope you're ready for Katie's performance of the band's balled "Porcelain".

Day 14: Noah Guthrie | #HITSBC17




Hey guys!

Day 14! We're halfway through our countdown!
Even though there's some absolute madness happening behind the scenes, I can't believe we're already two weeks in!
I'm having so much fun publishing these posts every day, because I'm so proud of the fantastic lineup we've got this year.

So if you have been watching all videos so far, fear not- we still have two weeks worth of new potential favourites, so let's dive right into day 14!


What is #HITSBC17?
HITSBC17 stands for house in the sand's Birthday Countdown 2017.

Who is performing today?
Noah Guthrie.
He is a singer/songwriter based in Greer, South Carolina, USA.
His music combines the key elements of Americana, Soul and Acoustic.

Noah grew up in household filled with music, so he naturally discovered his love for it at an early age.
He has been covering songs on YouTube for almost 6 years now.
His most famous cover of LMFAO's "Sexy and I Know It" has reached almost 25 million views. This soulful rendition of the pop track obviously got a lot of well deserved attention.

Noah's talent also caught the attention of US hit series Glee's staff who asked him to audition for the role of Roderick Meeks, which he successfully did.

Over the years he opened concerts for Ed Sheeran, Neon Trees, Selena Gomez and many more.

But Noah Guthrie is capable of way more than just covering songs. And his debut album "Among The Wildest Things" proved just that.
You can pre-order Noah's upcoming album "The Valley" via Pledgemusic (click here), that way you will be supporting Noah and you'll be receiving special access to sneak behind the scenes. It's a win-win!  

What needs to be said about this performance?
Whether you care about Valentine's Day or not, a bit of love is never wrong.
That's why Noah's performance is perfect for today; it tells a wonderful love story. Noah's voice is one you'll want to hear over and over again, so dear HITS readers - happy Valentine's Day!

Day 13: Jourdan Myers | #HITSBC17




Hey guys!

I think the coolest part of this countdown is seeing how it's such an international thing.
We have artists from all over the world here to celebrate with us.
Our readers are from all over the world as well, and if that isn't the most exciting part of this, I don't know what is.

On house in the sand it's all about uniting over fantastic music.
We all have the same passion - supporting new music.
Everyone is invited to have a good time.
HITS has no barriers. 

That being said, let's check out day 13!

What is #HITSBC17?
HITSBC17 stands for house in the sand's Birthday Countdown 2017.
Throughout the entire month of February, we are going to celebrate house in the sand's fifth birthday.
(Because why celebrate on one day, if you can celebrate for an entire month, right?)
With the support from some of the finest artists and bands around, each day in February will be filled with an exclusive performance just for us.

Who is performing today?
Jourdan Myers.
She is a singer/songwriter based from Minneapolis, USA. Her musical influences vary from Florence + The Machine to Brooke Fraser to Led Zeppelin.
Said variety of influences leads to a big variety of sounds when it comes to Jourdan's very own music; you'll find elements of folk, pop and alternative-rock sprinkled with acoustic bits.

So far the talented musician released two albums, "Chasing The Sunset" and follow-up "Ruin Me With Love".

Both longplayers showcase her wide range of vocals; one minute she sounds as vulnerable as a fairy, the other she burts out into intense and strong vocals.
With Jourdan loving a good collaboration when it comes to music, you'll find a lot of likely-minded and talented musicians creating art with her.

What needs to be said about this performance?
It's an absolutely stunning cover.
Jourdan made The Psychedelic Furs' song "Love My Way" her own and we adore it. It's just another performance which proves why Jourdan is one of our favourite artists.

I can't wait for you to see Jourdan's performance of The Psychedelic Furs' "Love My Way".

Day 12: Liam McClair | #HITSBC17




Hey guys!

When I started house in the sand, almost five years ago, I had no idea where this would lead me.
I didn't even know it could lead me anywhere.
The fact that a web blog would allow me to travel, still seems pretty surreal to me.

But every now and again I find myself on a plane.
Ideally it's taking me to Manchester which has quickly become one of my favourite places, mainly because of all the wonderful people I've met there.

Today's artist, Liam, was one of the first musicians I've blogged about and soon became a good friend of house in the sand! The internet is amazing!


What is #HITSBC17?
HITSBC17 stands for house in the sand's Birthday Countdown 2017.
Throughout the entire month of February, we are going to celebrate house in the sand's fifth birthday.
(Because why celebrate on one day, if you can celebrate for an entire month, right?)
With the support from some of the finest artists and bands around, each day in February will be filled with an exclusive performance just for us.

Who is performing today?
Liam McClair.
He is a singer/songwriter from Manchester, UK.
His sound can be classified as acoustic/folk with raw pop elements.
Most of Liam's recordings are guitar based and vocals focused. But you'll still find piano ballads and harmonica instrumentals paired with supportive percussions whilst listening to Liam's repertory.

With strong live performances Liam has convinced crowds all over the UK and even made it to Belgium, Holland and Germany to play his music.
 Music fans from all over the world are drawn to his sound. He has supported acts like Newton Faulkner and Echo & The Bunnymen.

What needs to be said about this performance?
It's so calm and comforting and I am 100% sure that you'll absolutely love listening to Liam's song.
It's perfect for those lovely Sunday afternoons when you're snuggled up on the couch, ready to find your next favourite musician.

And here we go - check out Liam's performance of his song "Where Ever We Like".
