The Ultimate 3
The Ultimate 3 are based in Grand Rapids Michigan USA and this is their first single release in Europe on the UK indie label Tabitha Records.
Graham Sclater CEO of Tabitha heard their original blend of acoustic and rock music when Andy Mitchell at Audio Bay Mastering sent him some of their songs. The result was the band signing to Tabitha Records and their first official release will be the haunting “I’m Sorry” & “Do you dream in colour.”
The music of The Ultimate 3 is mostly conceived on acoustic guitar by front man vocalist Doug Kuiper. His atypical tuning and dynamic rhythm is the origin of the band's sound. Doug teamed up with Mike Boeve, lead guitarist in 2013. Mike's refined solo work with both acoustic and vintage electric tones create a rich, organic feel. The rhythmic vibe is driven by bassist Mike Steffes who adds the unmistakable sub-tones of a 6 string bass. The combination of the low-driving sub-bass and warm, rhythmic acoustic guitars give The Ultimate 3 their signature sound. After months of searching for the right fit on drums Doug turned to an old friend and former band mate, Dave VerMerris. His hard-hitting, infectious pocket grooves is exactly what their music needed. The Ultimate 3 released their debut album in 2014 and are now writing new material for their second single release in January from Tabitha and a full length album in spring 2018
Doug and Mike are the driving force and primary song-writers in the band. They are both students of the vintage, analogue sound and between tours, the majority of the band's rehearsal time is spent in the studio, tracking and writing with an occasional impromptu concert in West Michigan.

“I’m Sorry” & “Do you Dream in Colour” from The Ultimate 3 is now available on CD from Tabitha Records TABCDS131 or to download.
The latest single “Ain’t No Cure for Love” by USA based King Errisson was released by Tabitha Records.
The song written by Canadian, Leonard Cohen, is the first track from the forthcoming album of the same name which followed the full length CD “Songbook” released by Tabitha Records in the summer of 2015.
Tabitha Music CEO, Graham Sclater said: “There are many unknown legends in the world of music and King Errisson is one of them. As well as being the top percussionist in the world, King is also a prolific songwriter and singer and has released more than a dozen albums.
USA Today says
“Few people outside of the music industry know King Errisson, but they know the hall-of-famers he's worked for. He's toured with Neil Diamond since 1976, and Diamond introduces him as the best percussionist in the world. He's played with Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, The Temptations, Smokey Robinson, Michael Jackson, Doc Severinsen, Barbra Streisand, Johnny Mathis, Lou Rawls, Barry White and The Carpenters. Like everyone in business from a chief operating officer on down, Errisson knows what it is to be the unsung hero. Errisson, 64, spoke to USA TODAY corporate management reporter Del Jones about coping in a world where the stars take the bows.”
Quincy Jones says:
"I've been not only a friend but a fan of King Errisson's for quite a while now. All I can say is that if you're talking about musicians with a fantastic sense of time and dynamics, then you have to put King's name at the top of the conversation. Welcome to the King's kingdom, it's a sound you'll be glad you found."
As an actor, King has appeared in the movies Uptown Saturday Night (with Bill Cosby and Sidney Poitier) and on television in Abe Vigoda’s Fish series and The Watcher, the 1980 remake of The Jazz Singer with Neil Diamond, and the movie Thunderball with Sean Connery.
King has been praised as “the unsung hero behind Motown” by Ray Singleton in her book Berry, Me, and Motown as well as by Berry Gordy in his book To Be Loved for his work with artists such as Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, The Temptations, Smokey Robinson, Michael Jackson, the Jackson Five, and many others. He has also worked with Herb Alpert, John Klemmer, Doc Severinsen, Ringo Starr, Blood Sweat & Tears, Jim Stafford, Swamp Dogg, Barbra Streisand, David Cassidy, Bobby Darin, Nancy Wilson, Johnny Mathis, OC Smith, Lou Rawles, Hodges James and Smith, Mickey Stevenson, Barry White and The Carpenters. He was a featured member of the Incredible Bongo Band and has been a member of Neil Diamond’s touring band since 1976.

This album is a musical cocktail of anything that was 70’s punk and new wave with a twist of today. That genre of music mixed with the original tunes from songsmith Vic Malcolm means that once you hear them you will not get them out of your head.
Cockney John is already a success, so much so that he needs his minder Geordie Jack at his side 24 hours a day 365 days a year.

I have listened to this CD 3 times in a row non stop. Is it Buddy... Is it Roy... Is it Elvis... Is it Charlie Gracie, who is it? It’s Bo Walton with a fresh clean and new approach to the music that appeals to wide range of listeners... in the words of one of his songs “I Like It Like That!”"

Bo Walton wurde in dem kleinen Dorf Marden in Herefordshire als Sohn von Ron und Kathleen Walton
geboren. Er hat noch ein großer Bruder David und eine kleine Schwester Sarah. Im Alter von 8/9 Jahren fing er an, sich die Alben seines Vaters von Elvis, Eddie Cochran und Buddy Holly sowie später auch
vom englischen Elvis – Billy Fury anzuhören. Im Alter von 16 gründete er seine erste Live Band, die überwiegend Pop-Rock Covers spielte, aber auch ab und zu ein Track von Elvis oder Cochran, und es wurde deutlich, wie ihn diese Art der Musik beeinflusste!
Bo, der wegen der Musik immer den Rückhalt seiner Familie hatte, fing genauso wie sein Vater, der selbst ein Singer/Songwriter war, an zu schreiben. Durch einen Freund seines Vaters machte Bo die Bekanntschaft von John David. John erkannte das Talent von Bo sofort und sie fingen an, Material zu schreiben und aufzunehmen; Material, das von jener Musik beeinflusst wurde, die John mit Dave Edmonds gespielt hatte, und auch von den alten Alben, mit den Bo groß geworden war.
Vor sechs Monate hat Ron (Bo’s Vater) eigenes Material an Graham Sclater zur Veröffentlichung geschickt, und diese Lieder wurden von Graham bei Tabitha Publishing publiziert. Während er sich diese Demos angehörte, war Graham von dem Gesang verblüfft, und er fragte, wer der Sänger war.
Ron informierte ihn, dass es sein eigener Sohn Bo war. Graham verlangte, mehr davon zu hören, das tat er auch, und so kam Tabitha Records ins Spiel (Tabitha ist Grahams Plattenfirma). Der Rest findet jetzt mit viel harter Arbeit von Graham und eine starke Glaube an das Produkt (das haben wir alle) statt. Das erste Single wurde am 24. November veröffentlicht und wird von einem Album in Februar 2012 gefolgt.
