H Kenneth is a new artist I’ve been introduced to that I just completely admire. He created this album off of inspiration from his own life. The botched chords, wrong notes, timing errors are real sounds from everyday life like the trains, sirens, and jangling dog collars. He’s very open with his audience and is transparent about his bipolar disorder because he wants to show that there is beauty in imperfection and neuro divergence. “This Is A Journal” is an ode to all of that.
We’re seriously impressed with Mahkenna, the girl is 17 and she’s got her hand in every area of entertainment. The actress, vocalist, and DJ talked to us about her new song “One More Time” and her career.
Illicit Ghost has a sound like no one else, it’s dark and poetic and completely her own. She takes part in every aspect of her songs and it shows.
Dominique has the most contagious energy, even though I talked to her on the phone, she just radiates positivity. She laughs between almost every sentence. She just released her song “Convince Me” and the song could have been taken directly from her diary.
The Trews just released their highly-anticipated album Civilianaires. The band is known for their fresh rock sound. We chatted with them about what inspired the new project. How did you all meet? Well, the singer Colin is my older brother so I guess I met him the day I was born and I have no memory of meeting Jack either cause …
We are suckers for Fickle Friends. They just constantly make the most effervescent ear-wormy music. Seriously their album is one of our favorites and now they’re already coming back with new music. They just dropped their new song “Broken Sleep” which will also be the title of their next EP.
You don’t really think of Reddit as a place where pop stars are found, but that’s exactly where singer and songwriter Sasha Sloan was discovered. “My parents were painting the outside of our house and when they got to my window they wrote ‘dork’ in massive letters pointing to it, so I posted it online and it made it to the first page of Reddit. So then I posted my SoundCloud link in the comments and a couple weeks later I was signed as a writer,” explained Sloan.
Our boys Why Don’t We finally dropped their debut album 8 LETTERS today and we could not be more excited.
KOPPS is a fantastic band, and they’re fronted by the amazing Patricia Patron. She’s the kind of fiery front woman that we aspire to be in our minds. She’s also a licensed therapist which makes her even cooler. We talked to her about mental health, their new song “Hott” and working with Joywave.
Savvy and Mandy are two sisters taking over. They are some of the sweetest voices in country music and their song “Wildfire” is about powerful women that know what they want in life.
