'Made On New Street' - BERNIE TOWNSEND

Release date - 1st September 2012


This album features ten songs from the pen of Bernie Townsend and long time co-writer Richard Sharpey and is firmly placed in the Country/Americana genre. The songs are emotive, particularly 'Just Wont Touch Me Now' which is based on the experience of a friend of Bernie's on his return from the Vietnam War in the early 1970's, and evocative as in 'Mississippi 1964' - from the bass slapping, slide and piano driven 'Hold On' to the heartfelt ballad 'Every Bit Of My Heart', this album is a sharp reminder that good songs know no boundaries, no matter what the genre.

The album was produced by Richard Vernon, Bernie Townsend and Barry Hammond with the exception of 'Down In The Quarter' which was produced by the legendary Hugh Murphy. The album without a title that had sat in a studio library for far too long, has finally seen the light of day under the title 'Made On New Street' in deference to the location of Chipping Norton Recording Studios where the album was written and recorded.

'Made On New Street' by Bernie Townsend is available on download sites worldwide and through the label website - The album is scheduled for general release in October of this year.

'Too Far Gone' - Glenn Coleman

Release date - 23rd May 2014


'Too Far Gone' is an EP of five well crafted songs written and recorded by American Guitarist-Songwriter Glenn Coleman and released on Gravel Road Records. From the atmospheric title track 'Too Far Gone' to the classic American Rock track 'Play The Game', to the laid back summer sounds of 'Drift' and the Southern Rock roots in 'The Grind', together with the beautiful harmony guitar instrumental track 'Answers', this Work is in danger of becoming a classic. Gravel Road Records have slated an album release for Glenn Coleman later in the year with each of the songs from the EP featured on the track roster.

The EP was produced by Glenn Coleman and recorded at Panhandle Studios, Denton, Texas and mixed at Gravel Road Records in the UK by Jacob Corr. Executive Production by Scott Robinson and Bernie Townsend.

'Sleepy Suburbia' - Objayda


The EP "Sleepy Suburbia" by Objayda is an eclectic mix of very original and cleverly arranged songs written by Tim Howe, (vocals/bass) and Tarn Ockenden, (vocals/guitar). The outer city-life "Sleepy Suburbia" and its quirky video is the designated lead track and with the haunting "Pegasus Bridge", the beautiful "South Downs Way" and the hard driving "Solar", we at Gravel Road Records believe that Objayda and their defiance of genre will find their songs equally at home on either side of the Atlantic over the times to come.

Track Listing
Sleepy Suburbia (T Ockenden/T Howe)
Pegasus Bridge (T Ockenden/T Howe)
South Downs Way (T Ockenden/T Howe)
Solar (T Ockenden/T Howe)
