Welsh singer Chez Kane released her first solo album on 12th March through Frontiers Music. The self-titled album was written and produced by Danny Rexon from Swedish band Crazy Lixx. Chez Kane will be known to many as one of three sisters fronting the band Kane’d. I had the opportunity to chat with Chez via Skype on 25th February to talk about the new album. You can hear that interview on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 12th March along with four tracks from the album. https://www.mixcloud.com/NIRocks/interview-with-chez-kane-on-the-friday-ni-rocks-show-12th-march-2021/

There were new interviews this month with Joel Hoekstra and James Durbin and there was also a special promo feature with Ricky Warwick. An earlier interview with Melissa Bonny was added to the NI Rocks MixCloud page - https://www.mixcloud.com/NIRocks/
I’ve been recording interviews for the Friday NI Rocks Show for over eight years now, but somewhat surprisingly Northern Ireland singer and Black Star Riders front man Ricky Warwick has never been amongst my guests – until now. Ricky released his latest solo album, “When Life Was Hard and Fast”, through Nuclear Blast Records on 19th February and when the opportunity arose to have a chat I jumped at it. We spoke via Skype on 24th February and you can hear what we talked about on the Friday NI Rocks Show for 5th March 2021, which is now available from our MixCloud site -
American singer James Durbin is my guest on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 26th February 2021, talking about his new album “The Beast Awakens”. I last spoke to him in 2017 when he had just joined Quiet Riot. That association ended in 2019 and he is now back with a new solo album under the name Durbin. “The Beast Awakens” was released by Frontiers Music on 12th February and the Show also features four tracks from that album.
The Show is now available now from the NI Rocks MixCloud Player - https://www.mixcloud.com/NIRocks/interview-with-james-durbin-on-the-friday-ni-rocks-show-26th-feb-2021/
