The BMI London Awards is a music industry ceremony which honors the UK/European songwriters and publishers of the past year’s most-played BMI songs on American radio and television. This year the ceremony is held at the Dorchester Hotel in London where Sting is to be named BMI Icon in recognition of his award-winning career and influence on popular music for more than four decades.
At this point we had no details regarding the Cranberries prize.

Noel Hogan : New self-produced project for release early next year

January 15, 2015  |  3 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Noel Hogan

Noel Hogan recently gave an interview published online at Audient.com
Not necessarily well-known to the general public, Audient is a company producing professional audio equipment qualified by Noel as “perfect for me”.

2015.01.xx NH Audient

In this interview Noel talks about his personal equipment related to Audient and gives a clue on his recent work :

New material with vocals that I’ve been working on for a few years is coming together now. We don’t have a title yet, but it’s due for release early next year

 

The next few months will see me working from my home studio, but after that it will be a combination of here and working in France. The next project is in the early stages. It combines the talents of bands both in France and Ireland to see what the end result brings. This is a big project that will take up most of the year.”

Depending on when the interview was given the early next year probably is 2016.
