10cc is an English art rock band who achieved their greatest commercial success in the 1970s. The band initially consisted of four musicians—Graham Gouldman, Eric Stewart, Kevin Godley, and Lol Creme—who had written and recorded together for some three years, before assuming the “10cc” name in 1972.
For the most part, 10cc featured two strong songwriting teams, one ‘commercial’ and one ‘artistic’, but both teams injected sharp wit into lyrically dextrous and musically varied songs. Stewart and Gouldman were predominantly pop-song-writers, who created most of the band’s accessible songs. By way of contrast, Godley and Creme were the predominantly experimental half of 10cc, featuring an Art School sensibility and cinematic inspired writing.
Every member of 10cc was a multi-instrumentalist, singer, writer and producer, and the writing teams regularly switched partners, so that Godley/Gouldman or Creme/Stewart compositions were not uncommon. After Godley and Creme left the band in 1976, Gouldman and Stewart were the main creative forces behind 10cc. Stewart left the band in 1996, and Gouldman continues to lead a touring version of 10cc to this day. (source : wikipedia)
Coely (1994, Antwerp Belgium) started her career at the age of 17 after someone heard her singing in a youth centre in downtown Antwerp. She signed to independent record label Beatville (2012) while still in school. It was the start of an amazing rollercoaster ride.
On September 13th Coely released ‘the first song she ever made’ called ‘Ain’t Chasing Pavements’, a raw, yet clubby hip hop beat, with a strong and powerful female rap vocal. Coely’s first song received high rotation airplay on several radio stations in the Benelux, Studio Brussel even selected the song as their ‘Hotshot’. As the media attention started to grow, Coely worked on her first EP called ‘RAAH The Soulful Yeah’ which she released March 23rd…. (source : http://www.coelymusic.com/)
