Northern Ireland is a hum of excitement as the fresh new music education magazine- musicINmotion is launched! The magazine’s founder Stephen McLoughlin has for many years realised a niche in the market for a music magazine with an educational slant in the province…and it has finally arrived!! It is currently a quarterly magazine intended to encourage and enthuse local musicians of all abilities to reach beyond their expectations and to enjoy music in its fullest sense. Stuffy, boring, high-faluting are far from words we would use to describe it, here at musicINmotion we believe that music should be enjoyed by all and are committed to raising the profile of music in Northern Ireland.

musicINmotion is bursting with articles on local people who have furthered their love of music in performance and as a career. We also focus on local music schools and see how students in the province are excelling I their instruments. In this our first issue we have interviews with the famous singer/songwriter Duke Special and assistant composer for the Ulster Orchestra- Brian Irvine!

The pages are packed full of the witty charm unique to Norn Irnd and they are lining the shelves of all good newsagents province-wide. It is your chance to see what’s going on musically throughout the province and be encouraged to get that instrument out and enjoy making music.

Manic Street Preachers
Many more to be confirmed…..
The Killers
Mark Ronson
Albert Hammond Junior
New York born Mark Ronson became a regular at downtown hip-hop spots and quickly made his name as a highly respected DJ on the New York club scene in the early 1990’s. He was soon a highly in demand DJ, being called on for celebrities’ private parties. Noted for his diverse, genre-spanning selection, he is influenced by both the hip-hop scene of New York and the indie uprising of the UK. Having released a cover of Radiohead’s ‘Just’ last year, Ronson has not been off the nations airwaves since. His album ‘Version’ has spawned a slew of hits that include a masterful reworking of The Smiths classic ‘Stop Me’ and a delightful take of last year’s Tennent’s Vital headliner Kaiser Chief’s ‘Oh My God’ which features the delightful vocals of the inimitable Lily Allen.
Better known for his guitar genius as part of influential New York post punk outfit The Strokes, Albert Hammond Jr released an album of solo material, ‘Yours To Keep’ on Rough Trade records last autumn. Featuring guest appearances from Sean Lennon, Ben Kweller, the Moony Suzuki’s Sammy James Jr and band mate Julian Casblancas, Hammond notes that he has been “waiting to make an album like this for years”. He has recently been seen touring with Incubus and will accompany Bloc Party on part of their forthcoming world tour. With musical accomplices this revered, who knows who’ll join in his Tennent’s Vital set!

Elaine Forbes at Tennent’s Lager commented:
“Northern Ireland is an ideal environment for this truly unique urban music festival, as it is a very rich and musically diverse province. All of us at Tennent’s Lager can’t wait to join even more music fans at Belfast’s Ormeau Park for this sensational line up at Tennent’s Vital 07.

Watch this space as we will be announcing much more of the outstanding talent that will be performing at this year’s Tennent’s Vital in the coming weeks and months.”
