NASHVILLE, Tenn. (November 30th, 2020) – Country newcomer Erath Old debuts a special holiday project titled Favorite Time Of Year.
On the special holiday project, Erath includes an original written song titled Favorite Time Of Year. “Favorite Time Of Year is a fun catchy Christmas song that brings people together, especially now when the world seems to need it most.” explains Erath.
With over a decade in the business, Erath has had the opportunity to share the stage with an exhaustive list of artists such as Lauren Alaina, Walker Hayes, John Rich (Big N Rich), Melissa Etheridge, Emerson Hart (Tonic), CAM, and Zac Brown. He has also worked with rock bands like Hinder, Shine Down, The Killers, and even legends like B.B. King.
Rooted in blue-collar Rock’n Roll and having a unique and powerful voice, Erathadds an edge to modern-day country music that is loved by both country and rock fans. He has been described as Mellencamp meets McGraw, and as his co-writer buddies in Nashville like to say, “If Kip Moore, Tyler Farr, and Keith Urban had a baby, you’d get Erath Old”.
CAROLINE has announced today’s release of her eagerly awaited new single. “Against US” is available now at all DSPs and streaming services; an official companion 24-hour video series – directed by CAROLINE and featuring 24 music videos in 24 hours from fall to school to Tik Tok themed visuals.
“Against US,” produced by Dan Book (Britney Spears, Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, Shania Twain, Demi Lovato, etc.) follows CAROLINE’s popular July release of “Simple” that dominated official Spotify playlists such as “Teen Beats,” “New Music Friday,” and “Pop Rising Philippines.” To further celebrate today’s release, CAROLINE is launching a radio show. “The CAROLINE Radio Show” will highlight CAROLINE’S songs and other songs that have significantly impacted her life.
CAROLINE’s ambitious, passionate, pure, and positive spirit have made her one of the most sought after and adored rising pop singers. “Already There”– which was a viral Tik Tok hit with over 100 million views and 16K dances and memes – made a stunning impression on young girls across the world with its chill, feel-good vibe.
CAROLINE’s career is highlighted by a truly remarkable string of fan-favorite singles. Her debut single “I Know Better” has been streamed 3 million times, followed by the meme-worthy certified smash, “On & Off,” and the YouTube viral hit “We Should Break-Up.” And her latest hit, “Simple,” has been a playlist magnet across all streaming services and affirming CAROLINE has a powerful force so early on in her career.
CAROLINE has been featured in countless publications this year, including but not limited to Hype Machine, Teens Wanna Know, Naluda Magazine, Inbeat, The Teen Magazine, VMN Music, and has been played on over 300 radio stations.
At the end of the day, CAROLINE is a storyteller, and her newest song “Against US” is another example of her signature songwriting. You can always count on CAROLINE to create songs with a catchy beat that makes you tap your feet and include lyrics such as “I laugh thinkin’ bout your name to get through the pain.” CAROLINE is loved for her music skills, and is also known for her daily live streams, headbands, spunky personality, pink wardrobe, themes, glitterfuldays, on-going announcements of new projects, suicide prevention, and for her to be your BFF!
CAROLINE doesn’t refer to her supporters as “fans,” but instead they are her BFFs; because in 2020, there is a chronic feeling of loneliness and depression among Gen Zs, and CAROLINE’s mission is to create real friendships and a feeling of unity and belonging with her “BFFs!” Her music has already been a source of empowerment, inclusivity, vulnerability, and safety for our rising generation, and we can’t wait to see what this young starlet does next! The best is yet to come!
November 20th, 2020 (New York, NY): Cat and The Queen has released her newest alt-pop single called “Bear Boy.” This track will be accompanied by a whimsical and emotionally loaded music video that will be released mid-December 2020. This is the first single off Cat and The Queen’s upcoming album, I Caught A Fish, dropping early next year.
“You know when you break up with someone and it just doesn’t feel like you want it to? Like, you want to feel like you’re free and empowered and evolved and jetsetting but instead you just feel really fucking sad. And you miss them. You miss their dirty apartment. You miss the sight of them reading comics on your toilet with the door open. You miss sleeping in their arms. Ya. That’s what this song is.” – Cat and The Queen
With her synth and prose-style vocals, Cat and The Queen wrote this simple yet emotionally weighted song as she spent months alone (during COVID-19 quarantine of Summer 2020) in a cabin in the woods, in Northern Ontario. Mixed and co-produced by CATQ’s long time collaborator, Alex Gamble, CATQ uses honest and humorous lyrics alongside a simple drumbeat — the result is the listener gets to truly visualize and humanize CATQ’s heartbreak. With only her drum machine and a sad love poem about her ex, CATQ asks: “Why does doing the right thing still hurt so much? I miss you. What else can I say?”
Cat and The Queen (CATQ) is the name that embodies both Cat Montgomery, Toronto-based singer-songwriter, and her beloved keyboard whom she calls adoringly, “The Queen.” Playing piano from a very young age, CATQ combines her musical skill with her work as a theatre artist to make each song she creates a raw and visceral experience. Two albums later, and many electrifying stage shows under her belt, Cat and The Queen is a musical and theatrical outfit that serves as an outlet to create and perform, in motion, stories of the heart.
Disney’s iconic twin stars, The D’Ambrosio Twins, have been acting alongside one another for as long as they can remember. As actresses, singers, and and best friends, Bianca and Chiara D’Ambrosio have extensive experience in television, film, and music, and are most well-known for their roles as Frankie and Reagan on 19-time Emmy Award-winning series “The Bay” and for starring in its spinoff series “yA.” Additionally, they have been recognized for their performances in “See Dad Run,” “Nicky, Ricky, Dicky, & Dawn,” “Diary of a Future President,” and, most recently, Disney Plus’ new film, “To the Beat!: Back 2 School,” the sequel to the hit teen comedy, “To the Beat!”
This week, I had the pleasure of speaking with the twins about their prolific career paths and numerous professional milestones at such a young age. In this candid conversation, the twins reflect upon their journey to stardom as both independent actresses and partners in crime and share their most memorable experiences and lessons with their fans.
You’ve both been acting since the age of 3, when you were cast in the role of Summer Newman on CBS’ The Young and Restless. Please tell us about your experiences on a mainstream television channel at such a young age. Do you have any distinct or formative memories?
BIANCA: I was three years old when I started working on “the Young and the Restless.” I can’t remember much, but I do have memories of bonding with my on-screen parents playing Disney cards and eating candy!
CHIARA: Because I was so young on “the Young and the Restless,” I can’t remember a lot. I do remember fond memories of Michelle Stafford coming to our dressing room to see us before going to set. She would hold my hand and walk me to set sometimes.
On both The Young and Restless in 2008 and Parks and Recreation in 2009, you shared the role of Summer Newman and Lennon Parham’s daughter, respectively. What was it like to take turns playing the role?
BIANCA: It was fun! Chiara and I got to work together and experience everything at the same time.
CHIARA: Switching places with my sister while on set was super fun because we always got to hang out with each other and practice our lines with each other.
What was the best part of being cast together as twins from an early age? Did it ever cause confusion on set, or did it ever create any tension between you as independent actresses?
BIANCA: It never caused tension between us. We have always loved being cast together because we get to do what we love together. A lot of people got us confused on set, so we would just have fun with it.
CHIARA: Being cast together as twins has always been a blast. We get to work together in scenes and make life-long memories together. I don’t think that us being known as twins caused tension for us to book projects independently. I was lucky to work on Disney Plus’ show “Diary of a Future President” last year while Bianca worked on a film. We are happy for each other!
When did you start making music? Please tell us about your breakthrough song “Let Your Light Shine.”
BIANCA: We started making original music when we were seven. I love to play instruments and wanted to try singing for a change. I ended up loving it and combined my love for playing instruments with singing to create “Let Your Light Shine.” I knew that I wanted our first song to touch on the topic of bullying since we experienced that back in school, so after talking with our parents, we created the song!
CHIARA: We started making music by releasing our debut song “Let Your Light Shine.” We had been bullied at school when we were younger, so we wanted to create music to encourage others to tell someone when they are experiencing bullying. Our song reached a lot of people, and that’s when we realized how our music can inspire others.
Please tell us about the process of creating your first album, “Got You Covered.” What was the source of inspiration behind your album?
BIANCA: “Got You Covered” was a cover album we did to music hits from the 80s, 90s, and even 70s. My parents raised me listening to older music, and I developed a love for songs created in those eras. My sister and I wanted to do something fun with our music and decided to use our parents influence’ on us to create “Got You Covered.”
What is the best part of being twin actresses?
BIANCA: For me, working with my sister is an amazing experience. She is my best friend and I love that we get to work and do what we love together. Having those memories together on set is something I will remember forever.
CHIARA: I think the best part of being twin actresses is that I have someone who can experience the highs and lows of the entertainment industry with me, and I always have someone to talk to.
How do you differ as actresses and singers?
CHIARA: We differ as actresses because Bianca enjoys drama and single-camera comedy roles, while I love comedic roles. We differ as singers because Bianca’s voice is higher than mine. Bianca loves the piano and guitar, while I love the drums.

What is your single favorite memory from your career thus far, independently or as twins?
BIANCA: There are so many incredible memories that it’s hard to choose just one. I would have to say one of my fondest memories was back in early March of this year when we got to see ourselves on the big screen! We got to watch ourselves surrounded by our family, friends, and the rest of the cast and crew. It was a memory I will never forget.
CHIARA I have many favorite memories from my career as an independent actress and as a twin actress. My favorite memory so far in my career was when we wrapped filming yA and I shared a moment of celebration with my sister that has stuck with me since last year. We were so proud of each other and it was a magical experience.
You’ve both had quite a diverse array of experiences as actresses. What is your favorite character you’ve played?
BIANCA: That’s a tough one! I’m so grateful for every experience I’ve had, and It’s so hard to choose one. I would have to say it’s a tie between my character on “yA,” Frankie Sanders, and Donna from the upcoming film, “Slapface.” Donna and Frankie are two completely different characters who I loved equally. Frankie is the spunky twin who hides her feelings and puts her sister before herself. Donna is a mean girl who only cares for her sister and her best friend, Moriah. It’s a tie between those two!
CHIARA: Any opportunity I get to play someone else is surreal. My favorite character I’ve played so far is Regan Sanders from yA. Playing Regan was a wild ride. She is so similar yet so different from me as a person, so it was amazing to step into her shoes.
What’s the one biggest piece of advice you’d give to a fan looking to pursue acting and music?
BIANCA: To never give up. I know it sounds cliché, but it is so true! Giving up just puts you one step further away from achieving your dream.
CHIARA: My advice to a fan looking to pursue a career in the entertainment industry is to never give up hope. Sign up for classes or audition for school plays so that you get an experience of working on set. If this is something you really want to do, then go for it and don’t let anyone stop you
What’s next for you both?

BIANCA: Right before quarantine, I had the chance to work with Justin Long, Judy Greer, and Melanie Lynskey on a comedy movie called “Lady of The Manor” which will be premiering next year. Chiara’s and my new show called “yA”, which is a spinoff of “The Bay,” will also premiere next year.
CHIARA: We finished filming yA last fall and are looking forward to the release. We are also going to be in a few episodes of “The Bay” coming up, so stay tuned if you want to see a little bit of our characters Frankie and Regan Sanders.
BIANCA AND CHIARA: Thank you so much for the interview. Happy Holidays!
Actress, singer, and celebrity activist E.G. Daily releases her new single “Don’t Worry About Me,” with proceeds benefiting LCA (Last Chance for Animals) and Tobies Small dog rescue. LCA is a nonprofit dedicated to eliminating animal exploitation through education, investigations, legislation, and public awareness campaigns. EG is passionate about animals and has been a leading voice, alongside Kim Basinger and others, in ending the South Korean dog meat markets. Here is the official “Don’t Worry About Me,” music video:
E.G.’s success began in the 80 ‘s and has continued with starring roles in over 30 feature films, including the blockbuster hit PEE WEE’S BIG ADVENTURE, where she starred as Pee Wee’s girlfriend Dotty. She also starred in the 80’s cult classic VALLEY GIRL opposite Nicholas Cage, NO SMALL AFAIR with Demi Moore, MY SISTER’S KEEPER with Cameron Diaz, and LOVERBOY with Patrick Dempsey. Fans of the hit series FRIENDS remember her from the iconic smelly cat episode as Phoebe’s ex-song writing partner.
E.G. competed on season 5 of the number one show in America, THE VOICE, winning a spot on team Blake. E.G. had a major label record deal with A&M RECORDS in the 80s, ending up with 3 top 10 hits, including her song “SAY IT, SAY IT”, produced by Jelly Bean Benetez. “Say It Say It” became a NUMBER ONE DANCE HIT all over the world on the Billboard dance charts. She produced, composed, and sang on as many as 30 classic film soundtrack,s including SCARFACE, THE BREAKFAST CLUB, THE COUNTY BEARS, BABE, RUGRATS, and MY SISTERS KEEPER. She can also be heard singing on the infamous video game GRAND THEFT AUTO, and the theme song of TWO AND A HALF MEN.

Canadian duo 401 WST throws it back to the ’80s with the epic debut of their 3-track “Our House” EP, composed of recently released “Do The Damn Thang” and 2 brand new songs that fuse hip-hop sounds and house music. The DJ/producer partners create a seamless fusion of genres on “Real Quick” and its accompanying music video; classic hip-hop rhythms are complemented by a deep rolling bassline and kickdrums to add an electronic flair. “Alive” follows suit of “Do The Damn Thang” and is perhaps the more house-influenced of the two new tracks, melding a tech-house bassline and deeply reverberating synths with hedonistic lyrics about partying and hitting the dance floor – a novel concept in the global pandemic. The “Our House” EP evokes memories of Chicago in the ’80s when hip-hop and house were at their heyday in the underground. As Black musicians, the duo places very high importance on taking it back to the essence of where house music began and paying homage to the originators of it all. 401 WST‘s sound is raw and unfiltered, providing a breath of fresh air in the age of autotune, and we can’t wait to see what they come up with next.
International DJ 4Korners and emerging producer Ashton Adams come together to form 401 WST, which is named after the highway that connects their Canadian hometowns of Toronto and Cambridge. Prior to the project, 4Korners experienced global success and has performed at the Cannes Film Festival, London Fashion Week, Formula 1 in Abu Dhabi, and the Olympic Games, among others. He has also been awarded the prestigious titles of Canadian DJ Of The Year and an NBA Championship as Official DJ of the Toronto Raptors. Ashton Adams‘ production versatility stems from his exposure to a wide variety of genres. From the classic hip hop sound of 50 Cent and Lil Wayne, all the way to heavy metal bands such as August Burns Red and Under Oath. As 401 WST, the two artists have set out to create music that focuses less on commercialization and more on the old school values of bringing people together and having a good time. With such a unique sound and feel-good approach, “Our House” is the beginning of an exciting journey for 401 WST.

Eleri Angharad has announced her latest single New Sin will be released on Friday 13th November 2020 via streaming/digital download platforms. The Swansea based siren’s latest single sees her explore her sultrier pop side, observing the story of two strangers beginning a love affair.
Inspired by her legendary hometown venue Sin City, Swansea; New Sin showcases Eleri’s pop susceptibilities as she continues to explore her artistry. Stepping away slightly from her country roots sound, Eleri proves that she’s just as comfortable writing a moody, sexy and alluring pop banger. From the get go, her softly provocative vocals take you on a journey building from an almost whisper in your ear to an eruptive passionate chorus.
The lyrics pack that same dreamy imagery that her songs have become known and loved for. New Sin makes you a fly on the wall inside the hallowed walls of Sin City, as you watch the drama of two lovers intertwine and begin a forbidden love. The eerie and seductive production adds to this evoking lyrical story with a heart-thumping beat from long-time producer Lee House (XY&O, Catrin Finch).
“New Sin is about the thrill of two lovers, locking eyes and beginning a steamy love affair. I’ve spent many a night out in Sin City and always catch myself observing and soaking in the atmosphere, capturing snapshots of peoples’ lives, in-between a few drinks and dancing – of course.
It’s a love lesson to characters that should know better. Does it become a one-night stand or blossom into something more? I’ll leave that for you to decide.” Eleri teases.
We don’t need reminding that 2020 has been extremely difficult for independent artists but, Eleri Angharad released her single Blank Walls back in April. Since then it has racked up over 150,000 streams on Spotify alone; her biggest success to date! Backed up with positive critical success from influential new music blog Fresh on the Net, hailing the track as ‘Kacey Musgraves meets London Grammar.’
The track gained playlisting on numerous influential and sought-after digital playlists. She also created her own her own weekly lives series, Eleri’s Sunday Sessions, a collaborative stream with artists from across the globe.
“I wanted to do something different with a live stream, that would interest people and be more fun for me. So, I created the Sunday Sessions where I invite another artist to come and perform songs alongside me, then we discuss them, what influences them and check in with their lives. We’ve been connecting different music lovers with artists they’ve never discovered before. It’s also led to some exciting collaborations, which you might hear in the future….”
These will also return in coming months, with some new and exciting guests planned.
Eager to help others, Eleri has started her own social media company Mondaay Media after growing her audience substantially over the past year, she wanted to help other artists and small businesses thrive. Eleri also joined forces with singer/songwriter Naomi Rae to create Siren Songwriting, a female song writing community based in Cardiff designed to create a safe, collaborative space for women.
2019, was no gap year either as she finally released her debut album Earthbound to critical acclaim. “Eleri Angharad is most certainly one to watch and takes the listener on a rather impressive journey” – (Rebecca Haslam, God is in the TV Zine) and the title track was added to the Welsh A-List on BBC Radio Wales.
BBC Radio Wales’ Eleri Sion felt transported to the music city by exclaiming “Didn’t we step into Nashville there!” Straight after airing it on her daytime show. Eleri Angharad also managed to squeeze in 3 complete tours covering the UK and mainland Europe over 39 dates, two sell out launch parties in Cardiff and Swansea all to support the release. This was following on from her previous success of her first Welsh language single Dal FiA-listed on BBC Radio Cymru and her music has also been played on by Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music.
New Sin by Eleri Angharad is out on Friday 13th November via all major streaming and digital download platforms. Listen here*
Signed to Power & Money Records, his visceral vulnerability defines a new style altogether.
Born and bred in the hip-hop hotbed of the Magnolia Projects, he immediately gravitated towards rap. Inspired by everyone from hometown heroes such as Juvenile, Solja Slim, and LilWayne to DMX and Eve, he can vividly recall rapping in third grade during lunch. By 12-years-old, he recorded his first song and joined a local group that regularly performed around the neighborhood.
During 2015, he quietly started uploading tracks and freestyles online. His “Tuesday Freestyle” eclipsed half-a-million total plays and caught the attention of Cash Money Records Co-Founder and hip-hop legend Bryan ‘Birdman’Williams. The icon personally signed Neno Calvin and immediately got to work.
Kicking off a creative partnership, the budding talent teamed up with Birdman on the acclaimed 2016 single “Ms. Gladys” and follow-up “Fuk Em”. He also graced the tracklistings of high-profile 2018 releases such as the Before AnythangOriginal Motion Picture Soundtrack and the collaborative Lost At Sea II by Birdman and Jacquees on “GWSC.” He reached a new creative and critical plateau on 2019’s Neeny Wonder. Paying homage to Stevie Wonder with his alter ego and smoky take on the Hotter Than July album artwork, his storytelling, and style flourished across the ten tracks, especially on “Never Knew”—noted by The Fader among “The 10 best new rap songs right now.”
About his rise, Cash Money Records Co-Founder and Chief
Executive Ronald ‘Slim’ Williams commented, “Neno Calvinis next level. He strikes an emotional nerve that few artists do because he goes all-in. There’s nothing held back. He embodies integrity as an artist.”
“The toughest among us tend to be the most vulnerable. If you can show your true self to the world without fear, you can do anything.” Neno Calvin pulls no punches in his self-patented, “Emotional gangsta music.” Instead, the New Orleans-born and Atlanta-based rapper strike a delicate balance between magnetic melodies and hard-hitting bars. That combination powered up a string of independent projects—such as the Calvinism series, Gimme That IV, I for I, Cvlvino, and Nenola2—past 10 million cumulative streams across platforms. It also incited high praise with The Fader crowning him, “Best rapper in New Orleans,” in 2019.
Introducing So-Cal band of brothers We the Commas – comprised of Lenny, Cam, and Jordy Comma.
Having felt like there’s no one box they could check off to describe themselves, as individuals or to fully encompass their musicality, the band coined the term SARB (aka Surf Alternative R&B). It all really depends on the mood and is heavily inspired by their upbringing as Black men living on the coast of Southern California.
Refusing to conform to stereotypes of sonic pop, rock, and R&B traditions, the newcomers are ready to shake things up as they put their own modern spin on their classic influences. It’s not often one sees a group of Black artists who surf and skate just as much as they play music, yet We the Commas embrace going against the societal grain and are all about staying authentic to who you truly are. PopMatters said, “The band find a balance between throwback surf and doo-wop alongside modern alt-rock and R&B… as young Black men, they aim to redefine the mainstream perception of what beach town boys look and sound like.”
Since their official arrival in June, We the Commas have garnered the attention of publications like Affinity Magazine, Alternative Press, American Songwriter, idobi Radio, indie88, Popular TV, Spindle Magazine, and American Songwriter who raved, “like the Beach Boys did six decades before them, We the Commas manifest that unmistakable musical feel and sound of the surf and sand. You can almost taste the brine in the brushed snare as it steadies their gentle acoustic guitars and three-part harmonies.”
The band stole our hearts with their debut single “Sherry.” It’s a blend of chill acoustics that are soothing as the waves they love to surf, as well as soulful vocals that reflect various emotions – from falling in lust to finding life’s purpose. Inspired by the likes of Santo & Johnny, Stevie Wonder, The Ink Spots and Nat King Cole, their sophomore single “Custom Made” features romantic harmonies lifted from the golden years. Lenny adds “I think we’re different because we are bringing in elements from 50’s pop, R&B and classic jazz which is a combination we don’t see much in today’s mainstream music.” Their latest single“Pissed Off“ combines bonafide lyrics with a commanding melody and electrifying guitar riffs. Trading in the soothing melodies and chill vibes found in “Custom Made” and “Sherry” that make up what they’ve coined as SARB (aka Surf Alternative R&B), the trio continues to separate themselves from the rest with their outstanding versatility. While their previous releases transported listeners to the beachside, the epic “Pissed Off” video takes you on an action packed journey across the desert throughout southern California.
Their journey began early in their family living room void of cable, singing Motown classics like Stevie Wonder and The Jackson 5 on an old school boombox, and later playing games like Rock Band. Music lessons soon followed and toys turned into real instruments, eventually leading to the formation of We the Commas. Quickly establishing themselves in their local Southern California music scene, We the Commas previously performed on San Diego’s KUSI Morning Show as well as for their March of Dimes charity event in Balboa Park, and hosted a weekly three-hour gig at The Bunker House in Oceanside. It’s no surprise their drive captured the attention of one of their very own inspirations The Head and The Heart, Young the Giant, and acclaimed hip-hop/R&B producers like Rex Kudo (Post Malone, Young Thug, Nav, Lil Uzi Vert) and Charlie Handsome (Travis Scott, Khalid, The Weeknd, Drake) before even launching their project. Recently they were reposted on Instagram by Young the Giant, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, and Pink Sweat$, among others.
BAND GIVES BACK TO LOCAL BALTIMORE COMMUNITY IN UNIQUE WAY
With their new song “Peace Sign,” Pink Elefants decided they really wanted to give back to the local community in Baltimore, which has shown them immense support over the years — for both Pink Elefants and their previous projects.
Instead of making a standard music video, the band took the entire budget provided by their label, Chirp Entertainment, and poured it into food, clothes, and other necessities for locals.
That’s right — they gave away all of the money to those in need in their community and to local support programs.
“Ever been in a relationship and you’re trying to work it out, but just can’t come to a solution? You probably get to a point where you just want the disagreement to go away,” the band says. “‘Peace Sign’ is about just saying forget it and moving on, whether that be staying together and forgetting about it, or going your separate ways. Either way, ‘Let me get a peace sign.'”
While the music of Pink Elefants leans pop, the trio incorporates old school hip-hop flair and influences from their alt-rock background to create a genre-less landscape for listeners who seek modern, rule-defying music. Drawing on inspiration from the imagery found in the classic Disney track “Pink Elephants on Parade,” the band aims to express the complexity of human emotion through sound.
The three very different individuals who comprise Pink Elefants hope to inspire others to challenge themselves and take unfamiliar approaches to modern music. Their true passion lies within the creation of the tracks, and “Peace Sign” does not fall short of their attuned approach to true genre-less magic, standing as close as it does far from the rest of their catalog.
Teenage singer, influencer and Kids Choice Award-winner, Rosie McClelland brings a dose of fun to 2020 with another brand new single, ‘Girls’ – out worldwide on October 16th. The young British star’s previous projects include starring in her own Warner Brothers feature film ‘Sophia Grace and Rosie’s Royal Adventure’, while famously being a regular guest on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’, within which she hosted red carpet interviews for The Grammy’s, MTV VMA and American Music Awards. Rosie has soared, from covering Nicki Minaj’s ‘Superbass’ in a viral hit, to releasing her very own music – including the 3 singles ‘Handstand’, ’LaLa’ and ‘Tik Tok’. With over 2 million followers and more than 500 million views across her content, Rosie is a strong online force among teens alike.
Rosie’s second single this year is ‘Girls’ – a bubble-gum pop anthem with girl power at it’s core. The single captures the high school experience for Gen Z teens, who put friendship first! Including her most cultivated lyrics to date, we witness Rosie arrive in the verses with a woke attitude to growing up. Meanwhile, the chorus and its catchy hook leaves us with an unforgettable reminder that “It don’t get no better than GIRLS!”. Like all of Rosie’s releases, there is an infectious urge to sing along – much like Little Mix’s ‘Wings’ – sporting the same inspired energy, lyrically & sonically.
Rosie’s previous singles have earned over 15 million streams and views online. This release comes during a time where girl empowerment is continuously stronger than ever and where teen pop is a rightful escape, during an ongoing pandemic.
Music industry press points : The song was recorded in Los Angeles, produced by K-pop super-producer Alawn (who’s credits include SuperM, NCT 127, Park Bom, Flo Rida), and recent multi-platinum NBC Songland star Dyson (who has also penned hits for BTS, Astrid S, Kenzie, Girls Generation). Rosie recently signed a deal with international management agency The Hello Group, chaired by former Virgin Records and Warner Bros. Records CEO Phil Quartararo and relative new-comer, music executive Taylor Jones.
MYRNE at last debuts his full length “Wandering” EP, which includes four new tracks, as well as his previously released singles “Forbidden Lovers,” “Sleeping On My Own Again,” and “Splinter.” The EP showcases the depth of MYRNE‘s sonic maturity and follows an organic and deeply emotive flow, which was inspired by his own experience wandering and traveling without a purpose.
The EP‘s opening “Superstructure” is a dreamy, breezy listen that establishes the thoughtful and natural flow of MYRNE‘s consciousness. The next new track, “False Memory,” is a wistful instrumental journey that carries nostalgia for times and loves gone by. MYRNE rounds things out with two vocal songs: the romantic ballad “Loving You is Scary” with Cody Lovaas, followed by a powerful closure with the ethereal and groovy “Creature Comforts,” featuring Vania. MYRNE masterfully carries the listener through a spectrum of soundscapes and emotions in “Wandering,” making it the perfect listen for your own introspective journey.
“A collection of songs that I wrote while in a period of self-discovery and aimless wandering. Nature and day-to-day existence definitely inspired this record, and it feels very liberating writing music spontaneously without conscious planning. It was a little odd sitting down to write without a goal in mind, but once I overcame that barrier, the process was extremely fun and relaxing.” – MYRNE in his own words about the release.
Singapore-based MYRNE first made his appearance on the scene with his 2015 debut EP “Softsins” on behemoth label Mad Decent, inaugurating himself as the first Asian artist on the label. His indie-electronic style comes from his training as a classical musician and his own isolation in his home country; MYRNE‘s style is both sophisticated and easy to listen to, incorporating elements from multiple genres. In 2017, he released the seminal electronic-indie LP “B4NGER PROJECT” with longtime collaborator Gentle Bones on Universal Music, followed by co-production work on RL Grime‘s “I Wanna Know” in 2018. After establishing himself as a talented force through these three projects, MYRNE has earned an impressive roster of live performances on his resume, including Ultra Music Festival and Tomorrowland, to name a few. He has also played to thousands in his home circuit in Southeast Asia, China, and the United States, such as Hard Summer, My Life Everyday, and more. Keep an eye out for more music from MYRNE coming very soon!
