When Hereford's iLLUSION first witnessed his brother, Small Morris, rap - it inspired him to get into music.
 
From there on, iLLUSION (AKA Kuda Sibanda) began producing beats and in 2008 joined the group D.R Clique.
 
Drawing on influences such as Jay-Z, Timbaland, Pharrell, Eminem, Dizzee Rascal and Wiley - Kuda is now being managed by his brother, who's overseen the release of his debut single being aired on MTV Bass, Channel AKA and Flava.

Tina V performs at Canadian Music Week
A Worcester singer is not only about to launch her debut single, but is also playing one of the biggest music festivals in North America.
 
Tina Maynard, better known as Tina V, will be playing at the Canadian Music Week - alongside other acts including Herefordshire's Ellie Goulding, The 1975 (whose roadie comes from Bromyard) and M.I.A (who performed at Eastnor Castle a few years back).

2 - 5 May: Upton Folk Festival

2 - 5 May: Upton Folk Festival
The line up for this event is taking shape and the organisers believe that they'll be presenting their best ever event.
 
Add to this the unrivalled charms of the riverside town of Upton-Upon-Severn, the festival will be the greatest weekend of 2014 for folk music enthusiasts.
 
Again, they have the use of the Parish Church as their major concert venue which makes an excellent auditorium and allows the team to accommodate every one comfortably; in addition the pubs and clubs will be used for the more informal performances and sessions.
 
Andy O'Hare will be there, hosting his reviews live from the event.

  • Such a big week gig wise - with chart-topping acts visiting our area.
  • As we all know, church can be a bit boring and the pews are often a bit uncomfortable to sit on for ages - so this week, in the papers, we'll find out which local celebrity has had botox in her backside and which local rocker has told the organist to move over.

BBC Introducing in West Malvern

BBC Introducing in West Malvern
Malvern is the most musical place in the region, if the number of tracks we receive from the town is anything to go by.
 

It's also the home to several open mic nights including Tuesdays at the Great Malvern Hotel, Wednesdays at The Morgan, Thursdays that used to be at Re-Con and occasional nights at The Unicorn.
 
The West Malvern Social Club is one such venue hosting regular music, so it was a natural choice to take our monthly recording roadshow to the hills - as we celebrated not only the best in music, but Mothering Sunday too!
