ARTIST UPDATES 2015 - Support Lesbiens/Kane/Sarah Connor/Kelli Ali/Tegan & Sara/She & Him
Updates from earlier artists featured in the Blog. Let's see what they've been up to!
SUPPORT LESBIENS - Czech band (Updating from blog 23/10/2012).
Since the original blog I wrote about the band, they have split the original line-up. Most notably, Krystof Michal, the lead singer left to create the band Portless and lead guitarist and write Jaromir Helesic also left. The new band with Josef Czenda Urbanek on vocals released a new album in 2013 entitled "Leave A Message". The album features the hit songs "The City" and "Changes".
KANE - Dutch band (Updating from blog 11/11/2012).
The album mentioned in the original blog was released entitled "Come Together" which featured the title track single as well as "I Love This City" and "First Crash Overthrow (featuring Tim Wes)". The band called a year sabbatical and it seems they may have decided to call it a day which if true, is very sad.
SARAH CONNOR - German singer (Updating from blog 22/11/2012).
Sarah released her first all German album this year, entitled "Muttersprache" which translates in English to "native language". It contains the single "Wie Schon Du Bist" (How Beautiful You Are). It was her second German number 1 following 2005's "Naughty But Nice". Sarah was encouraged to make a full German language album after her appearance on the German equivalent of The Best Singers series.
KELLI ALI - English/Indian singer (Updating from blog 15/01/2013).
Kelli Ali released the album " Band Of Angels" including the single "Kiss Me Cleopatra". Kelli will also be collaborating with The Eden House on their new album.

TEGAN & SARA - Canadian band (Updating from blog 16/04/2013).
The band received worldwide acclaim for their album "Heartthrob" even reaching number 1 in the US Rock albums chart as well as number 2 in Canada. They also received 4 Juno awards.
SHE & HIM - American band (Updating from blog 15/12/2013).
The band released a new album, their fifth entitled "Classics". It is as the name suggests, a selection of classic cover versions including "Unchained Melody", "She" and "We'll Meet Again".
