Interview w/ Rachel Maria Cox + their new Single 'Time' (OUT TODAY) by Hannah Stretton

It’s crazy how time flies when you’re having fun right? In August (2017), Rachel Maria Cox was one of my very first interviews for Newcastle Mirage. When the interview happened to make it into the print edition, I was elated. I have to admit that this interview is still one of my favourites to date. What I love about Cox is that their responses to any question thrown their way is always met by a whole lot of honesty, passion and heart - so when I saw the opportunity to speak to Cox again, I was thrilled!

It's time to Reclaim The Night, by Hannah Stretton by Hannah Stretton

It’s October 2018. For some, it’s that time of year where silly festivities like Halloween are on the agenda - where for many wom*n and men our costume options range from slutty teacher to even sluttier Alice from Alice in Wonderland or a very antiquated concept of masculinity and femininity. Never the less, some of us wear these costumes like a badge of honour while others dress in their own unique creations & get on with the fun.

Winter Live: Unplugged Showcase - Teddy RK by Hannah Stretton

Nothing gives me greater joy than seeing new faces emerge onto the scene, so it is a real pleasure to be able to give the new guy on the block his five minutes of fame (I'm hoping it's more than that, obvs.) I know that the words 'sweet' and 'innocent' can often sounds condescending, but Theodore 'Teddy' RK is just that and it's quite the charm I think Winter Live: Unplugged needed. Charming & raw, Teddy RK will be bringing a set you won't want to miss.

Old music can sometimes get a bad wrap, but when it comes from Truman Smith and his crew, there is so much to love about every second of it. Lucky for us Newy folk, Truman will be taking the stage at The Hop Factory for Winter Live: Unplugged with a performance that will be full of fun, harmonica solos and good vibes - sounds pretty good IMO.
