Larry Foley has spent two decades fronting two-high energy bands: the Punters and the 8-Track Favourites. But he says his new, stripped down solo album, Come Along with Me Bys, is a bit more true to himself. "When I get to just sing songs, I get to pull back and get into the subtleties of the song," said Foley. "I think it's a bit more me." Come Along with Me Bys features Foley's covers of classic Newfoundland favourites, such as John White's Signal Hill and Ron Hynes' Sonny's Dream.
With a reputation for creating an unmatchable energy on the dance floor, and leaving listeners reliving their 90s childhoods, GCDJ (Girls Can’t DJ) are fiercely carving their name into the pavement of the UK club scene. Consisting of Jordanne in London and Katie in Brighton, the pair have managed to spread their sounds far and wide for the benefit of every listener in a very short space of time; and when they come together it’s a magic not to be missed.
"It's still fun," said Chris Andrews, of performing, touring, and recording with his longtime Newfoundland traditional music band, Shanneyganock. The quartet of musicians — which includes Andrews, Mark Hiscock, Bob Pike and Billy Sutton — has a jam-packed schedule of performances in Newfoundland and Labrador, with tours in Canada and the United States slotted in between. The band has taken a breather from the road to release a new album, called Home in My Harbour.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
