KMRL Feature Artist: No Fixed Abode“Joni Mitchell meeting Bruce Springsteen and having a jam after a bottle or two of wine.” The band No Fixed Abode explains their sound with one of the most intriguing descriptions I’ve heard in quite awhile! And they’re right on -- the amazingly angelic Irish voice of Una Walsh and the nimble fingers of Tony Dean on guitar have created an album to truly savor.
Their album Clearwater is currently available for purchase at CD Baby for $15.99 and features eleven refined and original tracks that will be well worth the money spent. The both soothing and rolling melodies that the two have produced are a fantastic mixture of melodious sweetness and rich full undertones.
If you want to experience the rejuvenating and flowing music of No Fixed Abode before you purchase the album you can visit their page at CD Baby and preview the entire album! Also, be sure to check out the No Fixed Abode MySpace Page for lots of pictures and more information about how this stunning duo got together to create such beautiful music.
KMRL Mojo Radio Live is so excited to play music from No Fixed Abode in our 24/7/365 KMRL Default Rotation for your listening pleasure. Tune in to KMRL anytime day or night and catch three songs from their album including “Kebab Crazed Nutter”, “Absent Friends”, “School Days”!

Gene-Manuel, First KMRL Featured ArtistAnd what a great first artist he is!
I first ran across Gene-Manuel on MySpace and was instantly intrigued with the title “Sophisticated Kink.” I like sophistication, sophistication is something most people don’t look for these days.
Contact was made and I received a CD and a presskit, both of which impressed me. Well put together and informative, I was won over before I put the CD in.
After listening to “Sophisticated Kink” my first response was ‘wow.’ I sat and listened to the entire CD without jumping past one song. This is unusual for me, even my regular bands get a skipped track or two.
This guy has talent. Serious talent. Each and every song is different, I heard traces of bands I love dearly - Moody Blues, Erasure - but it was very much his own sound! Unique and engaging, I immediately added the entire CD to my personal playlist and my favourite three to the station rotation.
The other night in the chat room during my show, Gene-Manuel came in to say hello and only added to the great impression I already had of him. Not only is he a brilliant musician who’s won over all the DJs with his song, he’s a nice guy!
I can’t recommend Gene-Manuel’s CD enough, go out and buy this CD! Go to his website or MySpace page and get to know the man behind the sound. KMRL is proud to play Gene-Manuel’s music and call him a friend!
