Camille Trust has so much energy and her new EP No Other Way encompasses that lust for life and brightness. We talked to her about her inspirations and some of the challenges she’s faced in her career.
Slow Magic is a bit of a mystery, he wears a multicolored animal mask during his show and keeps pretty quiet about his life but he delivers a crazy performance and makes the most infectious music.
Calan Mai has a crazy ability to write. “We’ve Got Love” immediately hooks the listener with quick lyrics that delve into his world. The song is dripping in sunshine and it brings back an aspect of music that was fading away, true storytelling.
RJ Word is captivating. His shimmering songs get stuck in your head instantly and he has so much charisma. His new song “What You Need” has this disco feel to it and makes you want to dance. We talk to RJ about his signature sound and the meaning behind the song.
James Bradshaw has one of those voices that just sticks with you. His covers have been all over YouTube lately and the way he sings gives me goosebumps. It’s that kind of classic voice that you don’t hear anymore.
We love Madeline Lauer, we chatted with her last year about her soulful sound and how she got started in music, now she has a gorgeous new video and is talking to us about her new song “I Know You’ve Heard.”
Keaton Simons’ voice is unique to me in that it provides familiarity. Each song kind of takes you back to a particular time in your life. For me, it’s a feeling of being home. After moving across the country, his music kind of gave me a nostalgic feel.
I’ve looped “Electric Bones” on my phone for what seems like my entire life at this point. Also, if you know me and you know this video you’ll recognize that Findlay is literally THE girl for white power suit inspiration. Natalie Findlay has toured with Iggy Pop, Karen Elson, and Brandon Flowers. She was also personally asked by Mick Jagger to play the Serpentine party in London. I just have such a soft spot for badass rockstar women. Her sound is a little rock, a little pop, a little garage and a little blues, but she’s ballsy af and cooler than I’ll ever be.
Over 4,000 miles away from his home in New York, Darius Henry- AKA HDBeenDope- is about to take the stage after preparing for a 15 minute set. He sits in a hookah lounge and awaits his performance time. The slot keeps getting pushed back and he waits with anticipation. Suddenly, the promoter for the show calls HD’s DJ to say “You’ve got to do an hour!” Too many people have come just to see him perform in Paris, France. He thinks, “How the f**k am I supposed to do an hour?” when he didn’t prepare for that.
Thirdstory just dropped their new album Cold Heart, and their soul influences make them instantly stand out. They’ve been associated with Tory Kelly and Chance The Rapper but now their rise is undeniable.
