Box - Love my box

Here is some new music for my Box

First up we have Justin Nozuka with “After Tonight”. Justin Nozuka was born in New York to a Japanese-born father and American-born mother. His parents divorced at age 3 and at 8 he and his family moved to Toronto, Canada. His debut album Holly was produced by Bill Bell. Canadian artist Damhnait Doyle from a song writing workshop he attended also introduced him to Universal Records. He recorded three tracks through Universal with Bill as producer, and following this, Universal requested to sign Justin to their label, but he decided he wanted to "record an album on my own, with my own freedom"

Second up is the hotly tipped Newton Faulkner with his cover of Massive Attacks “Teardrop”.
Newton has recently been signed by Sony BMG records and on the 30th of July 2007 he released his debut album Hand Built By Robots. He supported James Morrison on his February UK tour and Paolo Nutini on his UK tour in April. In June 2007 Newton's second single "Dream Catch Me" was selected Jo Whiley's 'Pet Sound' on her daily Radio 1 show. This gave the track much exposure and was highly commented on by text and email on Jo's show each day.

Third up we have the little Swedish girl Robyn who has hooked up with Kleerup for “With Every Heartbeat”
It had its physical single release in the UK on 30 July 2007. It was named as both Jo Whiley's and Scott Mills' "Record of the Week" and has been A-Listed on BBC's Radio 1. "With Every Heartbeat" became the biggest hit of Robyn's career in the UK, becoming her first top five hit, second top ten and fourth top forty hit of her career. The song charted inside the top five on downloads alone the day before the song's physical release.
