Stephen Fry's tweet linking to Cosmo Jarvis' video for Gay Pirates last week helped push it to 70,000 views over the weekend alone, placing it in the top 5 most viewed YouTube music videos in the UK (and the top 75 worldwide). The poignant and rousing track is the first single from the new Cosmo Jarvis album Is the World Strange or am I Strange?, due out next year. We first featured him earlier this year with Crazy Screwed Up Lady. This song presents a striking development of Jarvis as a lyricist. When Brian Eno is singing your praises, as he did recently on 6Music - “(he) is a very interesting example to me of a new kind of person; a new kind of artist”- you must be doing something right. Radio support has come from a host of 6 Music shows including Chris Hawkin, Tom Robinson, Steve Lamacq and Lauren Laverne, with XFM plays from John Kennedy. “It’s vivid, violent and the most tragically moving love song we’ve heard all year” - Dan Martin, NME. Cosmo Jarvis is available for records and publishing.

The best-selling female performer of the 1990s, Mariah Carey rose to superstardom on the strength of her stunning five-octave voice. An elastic talent who moved easily from glossy ballads to hip-hop-inspired dance-pop, she earned frequent comparison to rivals Whitney Houston and Celine Dion, but did them both one better by composing all of her own material. Born in Long Island, NY, on March 27, 1970, Carey moved to New York City at the age of 17 — just one day after graduating high school — to pursue a music career; there she befriended keyboardist Ben Margulies, with whom she began writing songs. Her big break came as a backing vocalist on a studio session with dance-pop singer Brenda K. Starr, who handed Carey's demo tape to Columbia Records head Tommy Mottola at a party. According to legend, Mottola listened to the tape in his limo while driving home that same evening, and was so immediately struck by Carey's talent that he doubled back to the party to track her down.
