Exclusive Interview: New City On “Getting Closer”, Signing To Universal & Timbaland’s Label, Dream Collaboration!
Toronto-based up-and-coming band New City released earlier this year a bop titled "Getting Closer". It was because of this song that I got very interested in this Canadian trio and just a few days ago I had the opportunity to interview them - just after the premiere of the "Getting Closer"…
Danish singer-songwriter Soleima released last week her new EP "Bulldog" and it contains one of my favorite pop songs of 2018 so far, Low Life. Up-and-coming Soleima has been officially brought to America this year (after being discovered thanks to her flawless No. 14 debut EP last year) by…

At age 15 Skylar Stecker has accomplished so much. She’s been signed by Cherrytree Records, the same label that brought up Lady Gaga and Ellie Goulding, she’s released studio albums and EPs, she’s received the blessing of Z100’s Elvis Duran as an “artist to watch”, she’s performed the US national…

Last year thanks to the release of his eponymous debut EP, rising country star Levi Hummon made it on Rolling Stone Country's 10 New Country Artists You Need to Know list. And that was a big deal. Now, a year after having a successful first EP, having toured everywhere, and having gotten the…
Only a few days ago my girl INNA released her latest single "Ruleta", and I became immediately obsessed with this summer bop, so when the opportunity came to do an interview with the Romanian pop princess, I was in awe. We did the interview recently and I asked her all about her new single, what…
Exclusive Interview: Mackenzie Sol Talks New Single “Laugh”, Dreaming Of A Bruno Mars Duet & His Top 5 Songs Of The Moment! [New Discovery]
I'm a fan of new artists succeeding. Look at super young Mackenzie Sol for instance. The 16-year-old UK-born, LA-based boy became a sensation on social media a couple of years ago and that led to a career in music. And after releasing only two singles completely independently and self-paid, a…

We’re so happy to talk to you about Avante Black, and up-and-coming London-based indie-pop band. They already made a huge buzz last year with their single “Imaginary Love”, and this year it all points out that “Make A Mess” will be the Avante Black song with the biggest buzz (could be another they…
Get into Youngr! He is a rising star in the UK music scene, signed to Island Records and Universal, who in the past 365 days has released a handful of pretty amazing and successful (“Out of My System” has over 22 million streams on Spotify!) one-off singles. Youngr’s vibe is often a combination of…
INTERVIEW! Serena Ryder Talks New Single “Got Your Number”, New Album “Utopia” & Canadian Singers Cracking America: Exclusive
With her first major label studio album she obtained a gold certification, with the second one she repeated the gold feat, and with the most recent one, her third major label album, that she released in 2012, she scored a platinum certification, so I think it’s pretty safe to say that Toronto-born…
