“Liquorish was a lightbulb moment for me. When I first moved to town, this girl named Allie was a part of the crew that I rolled with. She was into me, I was into her, but it wasn’t until I was a junior in high school that I had the courage to ask her out. We got married when I was 21. I wanted to write a song that perfectly captured the moment when I realized that I wanted more than a friendship. Liquorish is my love story,” Brady explains.

Today we want to share with you some great tips on how to select the right singing classes. Singing is a therapeutic activity – whether you can carry a tune or not. It is a popular stress buster capable of putting a positive spin on your mood and lifting your spirits. Singing can also boost your immune system, improve lung function, relieves pain, and enhances memory. Yes, that is what research says.
With the world being cooped up inside their homes, online singing lessons are a great tool to start a new hobby or keep honing your singing talent.
There are several online singing classes over the internet today. Selecting the right singing course can be a daunting experience.
Here are 9 points to consider while searching for the right online singing classes.
From whom will you be taking singing lessons? What is their educational background, their experience with music, their experience with teaching music? How well can they communicate in an online environment?
When you visit an online singing website, do look for teacher portfolios to understand who you will be learning music from.
What are the different singing modules offered? Are they beginner friendly? Or if you are an experienced singer, do they offer intermediate to advanced level classes? Find a class that best suits your requirement and not the other way round.
Look for the duration, number of classes, videos available in each module. Also, clarify if there are any time constraints in which you need to complete the module.
Does the class offer one on one online singing lessons or a live group session? You should have an opportunity to interact with teachers, ask questions, get your doubts clarified, or receive feedback on your progress.
Such an open environment is essential, especially when you are learning a new skill. You are investing time, effort, and money into the course, ensuring you make the most out of it.
The luxury of enrolling in an online course is the flexibility of attending lessons from anywhere, anytime. Working from home becomes the norm. You might find time only during the weekends or in the late evenings after you are done with work.
Does the online singing class provide you with on-demand videos? What are the topics covered in such on-demand videos? These are some questions that might help you learn lessons at your own pace.
Attending a free trial offers you a glimpse into the inner workings of the online singing course. You can attend a free session and judge for yourself if you are comfortable with the mode of teaching, teachers, and their manner of conducting a class.
Most online courses offer anywhere from 3 to 14 days of a free trial. Leverage this trial period to understand if you are comfortable with the online medium, your tutors, and your interaction with them.
Does the online class provide any reading or video material to enhance your singing skills and accelerate your progress? Do you have access to materials you can utilize on your own and in your own time?
This is surely an add-on service to look for. But with the number of online classes out there, it is a feature that can tip the scales in favor of the online class provider.
Once you have chosen to enroll in online singing lessons, how long do you have access to the course material? Singing as a hobby needs time and practice; you cannot become a maestro overnight.
There are courses out there that offer unlimited access once you have enrolled or have specific time constraints, like 6 to 12 months. If you are serious about pursuing singing as a hobby, then look for courses that offer a longer access period to their resource materials.
This is a subjective factor, but it still needs consideration. You need to take a look at all the features offered by different courses when comparing costs. Prioritize your requirement when looking at the costs. Do you want a class with interactive sessions and unlimited access, or want to explore singing as a hobby and want to begin with an affordable monthly course?
Turn to the internet when in doubt. A simple Google search can provide you with access to student reviews. You can check for the different courses offered, their structure, costs, teaching mode, and student testimonials on a vendor’s website.
You could also turn to third-party review websites to understand student experiences and the type, of course, they would recommend.
There you have the 9 different features you can look out for before enrolling in an online singing class. Singing can be a joyful experience and a great stress reliever, much needed in today’s environment. Take no pressure, hop onto a free trial class, test the waters and then make your decision.
ASTN has just dropped his much anticipated music video – first official music video – for his newest single “LA Don’t Look Good On U.” With his single, “LA Don’t Look Good On U” being released in November of 2020 to rave reviews from fans and incredible support from the DSPs (including editorial playlisting at Spotify and Apple Music), ASTN is excited to continue building momentum around the record with this new music video release.
“This was the first song I wrote after moving to LA last year… it’s actually written from the perspective I had [of LA] before I even moved [out here]. I’ve lived here long enough now to know that this city doesn’t change everyone, but it definitely swallows many,” says ASTN.
For ASTN, making music has been at the core of his existence since before childhood. After first unveiling music in 2017, ASTN has continued to develop and evolve his soulful, love-inspired Pop/R&B style, attracting a wide range of listeners and garnering millions of streams in the process with records like his top performing single “Flowers,” having over 15 million streams on Spotify alone.
Before the release of “LA Don’t Look Good On U” ASTN took a break releasing any records in order to focus on creating music that will take his career to the next level. Now ASTN is finally back and with a clearer purpose than ever before. The “LA Don’t Look Good On U” music video is just the start of what ASTN has to come for this year. Keep your eye out for more from ASTN coming soon.
(Los Angeles, CA) Lyra Star really wowed everyone last year with her music video for “Under the Water,” and she is continuing on the path of using her skills as a movement artist to create gorgeous visual art to accompany her haunting, ethereal music. This time, she transports the viewer into nature, drawing them into a beautiful fairy tale forest world that is reminiscent of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Filmed in Franklin Canyon Regional Park and directed by videographer/photographer Jayden H. Becker (known for the lyric video “The End” by artist Kyns), the shots weave seamlessly back and forth between Lyra’s graceful dance and exploration of the natural world with her more intense contortion movements in deep backbends and handstands. The song itself, “Fade,” was actually part of Lyra’s full length album, A Thousand Dreams, released in 2018, and it was the very first song that she ever wrote on the ukulele. What a mesmerizing way to bring attention to this gorgeous track that is full of her signature lush vocal harmonies, flowing violin parts played by Julie Mellon (of the SF Bay area), and hypnotic production/instrumental arrangements by Christopher Krotky (Soundwire Studio in Oakland, CA).
Buzz Music LA writes: “As one to engage us with her captivating vocals and themes that weigh heavy on the emotions she exudes, Lyra Star manages to illustrate a picture wherever she goes with her in-depth storytelling talents.”
Born and raised in the music city of Nashville, TN, Lyra Star left after high school to eventually fall in love with the west coast. She relocated to Los Angeles in 2018 to focus more on her artistic career and teaching yoga and pilates. A self-trained contortionist, Star began to break into the performing world onstage with her incredible skills as a movement artist. Her music has been compared in sound to Tori Amos, Lana Del Ray, and Fiona Apple. “Fade” in particular is a song that she wrote about feeling physically broken after pushing her body to its limits training for a yoga competition. This beautiful video does not disappoint, as it is mesmerizing throughout, allowing the viewer to become a part of the artist’s inner world and dreamlike journey, showcasing once again Star’s unique duality as a multi-talented artist through her music and movement.

“When I created the track ‘Fendi,’ my goal was to make it a worldwide hit. And when R3HAB and Smokepurpp offered me a feat, I realized that this was another step towards my goal. I’m sure that collaboration with such cool artists will give “Fendi” its second life and take it to the next level. You’re gonna love it.” – Rakhim
“I’ve been planning a lot of EDM/house type music for 2021, and I’m excited that one of the first drops was with R3HAB & that we were able to collab with Rakhim. I have a ton of Russian & Eastern European fans, and it’s dope to get to do so many collabs with artists over there. Hopefully, we’ll all be back on the road to perform this one soon.” – Smokepurpp

In a time when many of us are feeling disconnected physically from our friends, family and loved ones, Sleepwoka’s “Together We Are” reflects on the resilience of true friendship, even if we are spread far and wide.
Sleepwoka’s strong use of analog synthesizers brings a nostalgic 80s vibe and a captivating and surreal tone to his projects.
London based Ukrainian producer and songwriter, Sleepwoka, returns with another poignant single enthused with uplifting electro-pop soundscapes. Since he burst on the scene just last year, Sleepwoka, has released a string of successful singles gaining the attention of BBC Music Introducing London, Earmilk, Variance and Atwood Magazine.
As Earmilk concluded after his last single, “How I Was wrong”; “Sleepwoka’s music succeeds in pursuing relatable and thought-provoking narratives, with the hopes to make listeners evaluate their everyday lives through intricately crafted electronic music.” The new single, “Together We Are”, perfectly follows suit.
In a time when many of us are feeling disconnected physically from our friends, family and loved ones, Sleepwoka’s “Together We Are” reflects on resilience of true friendship even if we are spread far and wide. He explains: this single is a tribute to all my friends that are scattered around the world. Although we live different lives and rarely see each other, it feels like the invisible connection only grows stronger. It’s a connection that reaches beyond messages on your phone. It’s the feeling that you get when warm memories from the past remind you of the strength of the friendship – which is especially important right now. Whatever this crazy world brings to us, it still feels like we’re in this together and no distance or time can change that.”
It’s a powerful and much needed reminder during the ongoing pandemic that we are not alone even if it has felt like that at times.
Sleepwoka’s music is produced in his bedroom in North London. The strong use of analog synthesizers brings a nostalgic 80s vibe and the dream-like atmospheric visuals add a captivating and surreal tone to his projects.
