Sophia Scott has the perfect mix of Southern sass and twang and this shows in her newest single, “Quit.” She’s been linked to various genres, but I think after you take a listen to her music, you’ll realize she doesn’t fit a specific mold. I was able to talk to her about the premiere of “Quit” and what else she has planned for the year.
The first time I saw Lauren Ruth Ward perform I couldn’t take my eyes off her, she commands the attention of the entire audience. She has this insane energy and the way she sings and moves on stage it’s like the music is just flowing through her and it washes over the audience captivating them. Her soulful vocals, unapologetic lyrics, and the way she performs like she’s exorcising demons from her own mind make her the rockstar we’ve desperately needed.
Gothic Tropic is the creation of Cecilia Della Peruti. The multi-instrumentalist that has created a lush 70’s inspired soundscapes that focus on her effortless guitar skills and dreamy voice. Her debut album Fast of Feast is the perfect example of how she blends pop and psychedelic. We caught up with her right after an electrifying set during SXSW.
Yoke Lore is the brainchild of Adrian Galvin. The vibe is dreamy soundscapes, with driving drums and a touch of a banjo. We caught up with Adrian after a slew of shows during SXSW.
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.
There’s a good chance you’ve heard Lola Marsh’s song “Wishing Girl” it starts with whistling and a ukulele. It’s whimsical and catchy and will be stuck in your head for days. Lola Marsh consists of Yael and Gil and the duo is just as enchanting as their music. They came to Austin all the way from Israel for SXSW and we started with an intricate discussion on Texas culture. They talked about when “y’all” was appropriate to use, visiting local bar The White Horse, and Yael’s opossum sighting.
X. Ari’s got the coolest voice and she’s been performing for quite a while. We’re stoked to be premiering her live video for “Cattle Call.”
SUR, the brainchild of Zack Arnett, has been taking over the music scene, we talked to him last year but the turnout for his SXSW shows was incredible. We caught up with him at the Whole Foods SXSW invasion.
I was instantly hooked on Brasko when I first heard his song “Static” I love some Prince vibes in my music. His new song “TMYLM” is insanely catchy and he has this glam rock androgynous look that I think we’ve all been missing.
FF5 was performing at the Nashville House during SXSW and it was early, I mean it was probably like 1 p.m. but very early for me. As soon as they hit the stage it felt like a party. There was choreography and nonstop dancing.
