Hastings – A Musical Town

You may have already seen the news that Hastings has been voted the most musical town in the UK.

I’m sure that comes as no surprise to most of you anyway and it certainly doesn’t to me. So, I thought I’d make a quick video giving my thoughts on this ‘award’.

Let me know what you think.


Some of you out there may well remember a local singer/songwriter by the name of Adeline.

Although, originally from France, Adeline lived in Hastings for a number of years. I remember playing tracks from her album ‘Promesses’ on Hastings Rock radio and also introducing her at various local events, including Beatles Day.

Well, she moved to Spain around a year ago and now lives, i believe, in Barcelona. She is still playing her music regularly in local venues in the city.

But, she is now set for some well deserved wider exposure as her voice is currently being used on a new TV advert for a SEAT Leon car. You can see the advert here:

If you liked what you heard there and i certainly do, you can download the song from iTunes and Amazon. The track is called ‘Fly (Featuring Adeline)’ and is by a band called TR13.

You can find out more about Adeline via here website: http://www.adeline-music.com/ or her Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/adelinemusicpage

Although Adeline doesn’t live in the area anymore, i always think it’s good to see ex Hastonians making an impression elsewhere. So, well done Adeline.

Blog Post – The Future Is Safe In Their Hands

We’ve added a new blog post called ‘The Future Is Safe In Their Hands’.

You can read it here:


In this post Andy talks about the new generation of young musicians in the Hastings area. The post was inspired by an evening watching some of these musicians in Tin Tins, in Robertson St.

It’s a bit of an epic post by the way.
