Taking Off With Spitfire is our new weekly show in which we showcase the very best local talent from the South Holland area. It broadcasts weekly on a Thursday evening at 19:00, and is repeated the following Sunday at 18:00. Want to be on the show? We're always looking for fresh local talent to broadcast and promote, you can provide us with some information about yourself as well as uploading a demo here.
This weeks show features three different great acts, so there is bound to be something new for you to discover! You will be able to hear a little bit from a Spitfire regular, Hull based Jerry Hull (the name is pure coincidence!), the French Stereo In Solo, and finally Croation Seven And Counting.
A Spitfire favourite, Jerry’s music encompasses a wide variety of genres such as pop, rock, blues, boogie-woogie, Americana, gospel, country, medieval, jazz, ragtime, orchestral, romantic and that classic Memphis sound.
This week you will be able to hear material from Jerry's newly released album Strange Afternoons, including singles Periscope Down and Dreamscapes Like Magic. Visit his artist profile page to buy them today!
Since April 2015, Jerry has released 37 singles (including some album tracks, 11 videos, as well as 5 albums. His debut “Heaven Help Me” was released in July 2015, and a sixth album is due for release in May 2018.
Stereo In Solo
Stereo In Solo, is an exciting new project from Thierry Noritop (one of the two members of the band STEREO a French group who released in 1982 the cult song Somewhere in the night). Born in Paris, Thierry is quite the musician, playing both the guitar and keyboard, as well as programming and arranging his own music.
As with many artists from the 1980s Noritop is well aware of the recent resurrection of that decade’s music. A number of bands are citing bands such as STEREO as influences and their music is gaining a whole new, younger audience.
Seven And Counting
Croation based Seven And Counting are yet again something completely different! Brand new and with only a small amount of material, at Spitfire we think that the band is going to go from strength to strength and couldn't be happier to bring them to you. Currently working on their first album the band consists of:
- Boško Colić - Drums
- Neno Grabić - Electric Guitar
- Šime Radulić - Electric Guitar
- Ante Paleka - Bass Guitar
- Josip Milković - Saxophone
