Mosa Wild :: "Smoke" :: @mosawild

Trivial Pursuit: “I’ve got to get somewhere, get somewhere soon,” singer Jim Rubaduka laments on the track "Smoke". This is Mosa WIld's debut single. Hailing out of Ashford, Kent; we expect they'll be getting to their "somewhere" sooner rather than later.

Fink :: "Boneyard" :: @Finkmusic :: New Album Fink's Sunday Night Blues Club, Vol. I out now

Trivial Pursuit: Fink, aka Fin Greenall, was born in Cornwall England now living in Berlin. He worked with Amy Winehouse early in her career. Growing up, his dad used to say, "Everything in this house is owned by everybody - apart from that." His dad was pointing at his old Martin acoustic guitar. "That...you aren't allowed to touch."

On working with Winehouse, "The songs were there, her voice was there, and she was genuinely who she was, and that was obvious even at 17. She was a no compromise, full-on artist. It was just awesome to work with her."

Wilderado :: "Now That I'M Older" :: @WILDERADO

Trivial Pursuit: LA Quartet who recently were cut off from more alcohol on a flight. They are also big fans of the #8 song featured here, "Smoke" by Mosa Wild.
