We’re all about highlighting amazing women in the music industry. We talk to Gulce Turek who is on the marketing team at Fantasy Records.
Liv Keegan is probably known for her roles on various television shows, but if you haven’t been paying attention, she’s also a crazy talented singer. On top of being nominated for an Emmy, she’s already released a single, “Queen is a King” and now she’s dropping “Just My Type.” Her sultry voice mixed with the pop synths is sure to pull you in. We got to talk to Liv about what she’s been up to and we’re anxious for more music!
Nina Nesbitt is my current girl crush. She is constantly putting out amazing music and so far each single she’s dropped this year has ended up on a playlist. Her latest, “The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change” is no different. This song is slow, melodic and kind of gives you a hopeful feeling. I guess you could probably have figured out that from the song title. Either way, this song deserves a spot on your summer playlist.
If you’ve been paying attention to music trends, you’ll notice how many bands and artists from Scandinavia are breaking into every major playlist. Donkeyboy is a four-piece synthpop band from Norway and their infectious energy and catchy music is making waves in the States.
The pop-punk band Boys Like Girls was the soundtrack to my teenage years and was the beginning of my love affair with Martin Johnson. Fast forward to about this time last year and I received a new song recommendation from a friend. Immediately I knew the familiar. Martin Johnson’s latest band, The Night Game, provided my life with the 80s pop soundtrack I never knew I needed.
Jenny March has been making waves with her dreamy song “California Daze” er unique voice and catchy melodies had me instantly hooked.
I remember interviewing Joywave last year and being so confused with their album title. “Is it conTENT or CONtent?” I asked sheepishly. “ConTENT, they responded.” This is the content age, but Joywave maintains the album was answering their previous work’s question: How Do You Feel Now? Content.
Born Ruffians are known for their energetic live-show, their sharp lyricism, and their relatability. They make songs that are down-to-earth and more casual, but they have this undeniable chemistry. Luke and Mitch are cousins and Steve met them in high school. He says, “Luke and I had both seen the Strokes on Saturday Night Live and we decided we wanted to do that too.”
J. Marco is probably one of the coolest guys I’ve gotten to interview yet. Former Boston native and now a Nashvillian, the singer-songwriter talked to me about his debut album that just came out last month!
Day For Night has to be one of the coolest festivals I’ve ever been to. It has everything art installations, my favorite lineup this year, and it’s in my hometown of Houston. It’s in December, so yah, it can be cold but I love the idea of wearing a coat to a festival, I didn’t sweat it was glorious.
