Angel Olsen announced that she’s releasing an 80s covers project and I cannot be more thrilled. I love cover songs, I love Angel Olsen, I love how she’s translating these covers into her own world. Laura Branigan’s “Gloria” is reimagined into this haunting track that takes such a dark turn on a song that sounds happy but has those darker …

Baker Grace’s angelic voice and vulnerable lyrics work together so well. Her shimmery, pop songs always have this sensitive underlying introspective current. On her new EP she says, “I’ve been missing that part of me that I had when I was a little kid, where you just enjoy and appreciate every little moment. I want to put that into my …

Hey Violet Continues To Impress

Imagine getting to interview one of your favorite artists at the iconic Los Angeles venue, The Troubadour. Getting the opportunity to do this with Hey Violet was so surreal for me. Three years ago, I was actually supposed to meet Rena to talk their emergence on the music scene but there was one problem – I wasn’t living in Los …

From The Outside: The Anxiously Awaited Hey Violet Album

I’m an impatient person so after two EPs it was natural to crave a debut album from Los Angeles-based alt pop band Hey Violet.

I remember leaving 5 Seconds of Summer’s Sounds Live Feels Live tour last summer and telling my friends Hey Violet was on the brink of success. So would you believe that just eight months later I was hearing them perform sold-out show? When I saw the group, they were a four piece but now with newest bandmate, Ian Shipp, they’re on their first U.S. headlining tour and made a little stop in Dallas, Texas where they performed at the Cambridge Room in the House of Blues.

Hey Violet’s Brand New Moves

The first time I saw Hey Violet perform, I knew Rena and I would get along. I got the cool opportunity to talk with the front-woman of HV and we gushed the release of their second EP, a little bit of love, and world domination. “Brand New Moves” released just a few weeks ago and I won’t even lie to you – it’s been on repeat since then. If you heard their first EP, I Can Feel It, you’ll know Brand New Moves has a different sound. Less rock, more 80s inspired.
