Cover interview

Dreams came true when we caught up with Gabrielle ahead of her UK tour.

One of the UK’s most successful singer-songwriters, Gabrielle will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the smash hit ‘Rise’ album with a very special tour for 2020. 

Gabrielle returned to the top of her game with her 2018 album ‘Under My Skin’. The album debuted at #7 on the Official Album Chart and represented her highest-charting studio set since ‘Rise’ spent three weeks at #1 eighteen years earlier. 

Craig Maplesden caught up with Gabrielle, pre-lockdown to talk about her music, being a mum and why now was a good time to 'Rise Again'!

Paul Weller

The Modfather chats about lockdown, music streaming and his new album. 

Widely regarded as one of the UK’s most successful songwriters, Paul Weller’s 15th solo album was released early in July. He speaks to Neill Barston about coping with lockdown, a dislike of music streaming, and hoped-for plans to resume a UK tour this autumn

 

As Paul Weller explains, in spite of all else happening out there in the world that has created many uncertainties, he feels fortunate and contented. Having just turned 62 over the bank holiday, it seems he is very much at ease with himself these days, some distance from the widely perceived image of the ‘angry young man’ of his early career fronting The Jam.
