KEZAR RELEASES THEIR DEBUT SELF-TITLED EP

KEZAR RELEASES THEIR DEBUT SELF-TITLED EP

Kezar_EP_Cover.jpg

Indie pop band Kezar is excited to announce the release of their debut self-titled EP out everywhere today. Frontman Jack Mosabcher said of the EP “every song on it is so near and dear to my heart - a dream come true, really. My hope it is fairly simple: that it becomes a part of the soundtrack of your summer and adds joy and love to everything that you do.”

The danceable, hook-heavy number opens with their infectious debut “Tell Me (It’s Not Love),” produced by K-Kov (Keith Urban, Justin Timberlake) that has now been streamed over 845K times and was included in Spotify’s official Love Pop and Young & Free playlists. The track’s video was also inspired by the beautiful aesthetic of the classic tale Pride & Prejudice

“Feelings” was the very first song penned for the project. It will always be a milestone in frontman Jack Mosbacher’s life who, in just a few days, found a new sound, attitude and chapter in his life. “It’s a song about a woman who is totally in control, from a man’s perspective - she is confident and fearless…[it’s] an anthem for empowerment and the unmatchable strength of women." Fresh track “Ooh La La” started as a fun tinkering in the studio and turned into what frontman Jack Mosbacher calls an epic and unapologetic “Stadium Reggae” summer track. 

“(Tell Me) It’s Not Love,” [is] an unmistakably radio-ready pop bop. Blending soulful vocals with a dazzling array of modern indie-pop elements, it’s an electric debut destined for major attention. We’re seeing KEZAR in bright lights on famous marquees. We’re hearing his neon anthems on Top 40. We’re thinking he just carved himself a well-deserved spot in the wild world of pop stardom.”  The Music Mermaid 

At the helm of the band is seasoned musician Jack Mosbacher, the mastermind behind Kezar. He comes from a strong soul background and the more you listen to each cleverly crafted beat and infectious hook, the more you recognize it as the backbone of his newfound signature pop style. Mosbacher also has a deep admiration and respect for the artists that came before him. Using state-of-the-art synthesizer technology, he and the producers added throwback elements from hip-hop’s glory days, like the big 808 drum machines on Run-DMC and NWA records and stacked backing vocals and bass synths reminiscent of the 2000’s Hyphy Movement – homages to Mac Dre, Mistah F.A.B., Keak da Sneak, and Traxamillion. When choosing a name for this project, Mosbacher wanted to stay true to his hometown of San Francisco by naming it after Kezar Stadium in the Haight-Ashbury district. Choosing the original home of the 49ers and a now music venue that played host to music legends such as Led Zeppelin, Santana and The Grateful Dead, seemed like the perfect segway into a new era of his career while staying true to his roots. 

“The song is the perfect combination of soul and modern pop” Affinity Magazine (on “Let’s Talk About You”)



COOPER & GATLIN RELEASE THE ANTHEM OF THE SUMMER "ON YOUR MIND"

COOPER & GATLIN RELEASE THE ANTHEM OF SUMMER “ON YOUR MIND”

Cooper-Gatlin Fragile-199.jpg

Powerhouse brother-sister pop duo Cooper & Gatlin have released their catchy and relatable summer anthem “On Your Mind” out everywhere today. The pair was inspired to pen this tune after Gatlin’s self-described fantasy turned flatline dating experience. As frustrating as the situation was, it served as the perfect lyrical inspiration. Hurt by this guy’s lack of devotion, she knew she was worth more than being put on anyone’s back burner. “On Your Mind became our  ‘buck up, or butt out’ anthem,” the pair said. 

“The world is loud + sometimes you need an excuse to slow down. “Fragile” gives you a peaceful moment alone–so go ahead, hit repeat a few times.” -Idobi Radio (on “Fragile”)

Their previous release “Fragile,” a raw, beautiful track about vulnerability and daring to be authentic, was released to warm praise from fans and the media alike. The track’s success includes over 2 million streams and an incredible video featuring NBC's World of Dance stars Sean Lew and Kaycee Rice. It came hot on the heels of their debut single “Break,” another rhythmic track about the stoic face you put on in front of ex- lovers. Upon its release the track was featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday U.S. playlist and the video has now amassed over 628K views. Ultra Records artist Tep No also produced a remix of the track that he even called “one of the best remixes I've made.” 

The two have the brilliant ability to blend elements of both acoustic and electronic elements seamlessly into their music. They draw you in with their lush harmonies, tight melodies and playful brother-sister dynamic. They truly found their sound when the pair’s family relocated to Los Angeles in 2014 from their hometown of Franklin, Tennessee. They’ve spent the past several years honing their craft as songwriters and musicians by forging their wide array of influences together to create a sound uniquely their own. They recently wrote a batch of new left-of-center pop songs that are universal and uplifting in delivery, but also deeply personal. 


“There is an element of Cooper & Gatlin’s dynamic as a duo that instantly resonates with listeners – making you feel as if you’ve known them forever when, in fact, they’ve only just released their third single. The Tennessee born, LA based, brother-sister alternative-pop team captivate their audience with their fresh and spirited ability to connect through storytelling in their music that stems from a powerful mutual understanding.” -Heirwaves

ADULT(ED) WITH MEGAN NICOLE LAUNCHES EPISODE SEVEN: WINE

ADULT(ED) WITH MEGAN NICOLE LAUNCHES EPISODE SEVEN: WINE

Megan_Nicole_adulted_wine.jpg

Megan Nicole, in conjunction with Jeenyus Entertainment, has launched the seventh episode of her brand new YouTube show Adult(ed). This episode is all about wine.  

In this episode, Megan and her friend Rydel Lynch are joined by sommelier Dr. Ryan Hess who has a Ph.D. in viticulture and enology and is the beverage director for Sprout LA. Hess starts the episode with the goal of making wine consumption more accessible and enjoyable, in particular for Lynch who is a wine skeptic and feels that she is missing out on a lot of social time with friends and family due to her lack of enthusiasm for wine. 

Hess walks the two women through the basics of tasting and enjoying wine, from why certain glasses are shaped the way they are, to why wines are named the way they are, like Savginon Blanc ‘translating to the savage grape,’ due to the brightness of its acidity. Dr. Hess gives some insightful advice for shopping for wine and how the occasion should dictate the cost, in addition to how packaging and the weight of the bottle is oftentimes an indicator of the quality of the wine. The episode sees both Rydel and Megan, become exponentially more confident in their abilities to enjoy and shop for wine. See Megan’s key takeaways from the episode HERE

ADULT(ED) EPISODE SEVEN: WATCH HERE

This past year, Megan’s life really catapulted from adolescence to adulthood, with her getting married, buying her first home and become a pet parent. These rapid changes left her a little overwhelmed and wishing she had a sort of handbook which was the inspiration for the concept of Adult(ed). 

In this 10-episode season, Megan, along with a guest tackle a new subject with the help of an expert on the topic. Fan feedback from the first five episodes has been incredible thus far. From throwing a fancy dinner party and working out anywhere to figuring out taxes, Megan hopes viewers will learn something new and will leave each episode feeling confident about taking action to live a more positive adult life.

SPEELBURG RELEASES “OXY COTTON CANDY”

SPEELBURG RELEASES “OXY COTTON CANDY”

Oxy Cotton Candy.jpg

“Speelburg...is a force to be reckoned with.” - Pigeons & Planes

 Just in time for the 4th of July Speelburg has released his cheeky yet cheery song of the summer ‘Oxy Cotton Candy.”  The Belgian-American Brighton, UK based artist spent the last two years making “pop music for important people,” and "Oxy Cotton Candy”  is the first single from the body of work created in those sessions. These new songs are a departure from his previous releases, offering a sunnier musical disposition that puts a spotlight on Speelburg mastermind Noah Sacré’s sharp wit and unique sense of humor. The track is fantastically intricate and slyly brilliant, drawing listeners into Speelburg’s pleasantly oddball world with jangly hooks and effervescent choruses.

“..... that killer falsetto, playfully arranged guitars and synths and melodies that can evoke Connan Mockasin one moment, and Father John Misty or ‘The Bay’-era Metronomy the next.”

 - VICE on "Screener Season”(the last single)

When choosing a name for the project, Sacré, who has a deep love of cinema,  decided that if he was going to be a creative and put those creations out into the world he should set the bar high. So he aimed for genius level, naming the project Speelburg, to keep a nice and slightly uncomfortable level of pressure oh his shoulders, in the hopes that someday he will live up to the name.  Speelburg’s oddball view of the world makes its way into all of his work from his songs named after famous people like “Gwyneth Paltrow” and song titles like “Oxy Cotton Candy,” that Sacré feels encapsulates the vibe of these new songs: “absurd weird and fun,” says Sacré “like there’s something off-kilter about it but it’s still disco-y and danceable.” 

Speelburg’s music has been championed by tastemakers such as Pigeons and Planes, Indie Shuffle, Clash Music, Vice, DIY Magazine,  BBC Radio 1’s Phil Target, Annie Mac and Clara Amfo, KCRW’s Jason Kramer and Apple’s Zane Lowe. Collectively Speelburg’s music has been streamed over 8 million times and counting.

ADULT(ED) WITH MEGAN NICOLE LAUNCHES EPISODE FOUR: HOW TO WORK OUT ANYWHERE

DSC04046.jpg

Megan Nicole, in conjunction with Jeenyus Entertainment, has launched the fourth episode of her brand new YouTube show Adult(ed). This episode is all about working out and is another incredible chapter to the full guide on how to being a grown up.

In this episode, Megan brings in muscle and mindset coach Natalie Flowers to walk Megan’s friend actress Greer Grammer  through how to live healthier despite being a busy working actress with a hectic schedule and lot’s of travel. Flowers takes Megan and Greer through a series of workouts that can be done on the go and almost anywhere using resistance bands and household items like paper plates. Flowers also coaches the girls on meal prep and portion control breaking it down into simple palpable rules and guidelines to make the task less daunting. One of the most important things Flowers touches on is how making real change starts with the right mindset. The human brain has over 70,000 thoughts a day, 90% of which are negative, so to start seeing real change we need to change our thoughts. Flowers’ gives viewers some insight into her four F’s system for creating a healthy and more positive mindset. Faith, which is what you believe about yourself.  Focus, and what you began to see. Feet, which is taking action on what you believe about yourself all which lead to a healthy and positive Future.

Adult (ed) was inspired by the last year of Megan’s life where she felt like she went from adolescence to adulthood overnight. She got married, bought her first home and became a pet parent. These rapid changes left her a little overwhelmed and wishing she had a handbook of sorts, thus, Adult(ed) was born. The feedback on the three episodes, “How to Transform A Rental Space,”  “How to Throw an Adult Dinner Party” and “What You Need in Your Kitchen” has been incredible thus far.  With this show, Megan is hoping that viewers walk away from the series and the individual episodes feeling informed, positive and confident about living a meaningful adult life.

WASI RELEASES THEIR DEBUT ALBUM RIOT POP

WASI RELEASES THEIR DEBUT ALBUM RIOT POP

WASI_RP_Final_3000px.jpg

Los Angeles revolutionaries WASI usher in a new movement of empowerment, inclusion and self-love with their debut album Riot Pop out everywhere today. Pushing for change and acceptance, this record comes right in time to celebrate Pride Month. In addition to the release of their debut, the band will head out on the road for their Love is Gay tour starting June 10th where they’ll be working with LGBTQ youth centers around the country at every tour stop, meeting with kids in each city to talk to them about music, art and above all, spreading a message of pride and breaking down barriers. To celebrate even further, the band will be DJing the Pride show at the tastemaker Los Angeles showcase night, School Night!

“WASI is the pop band the world needs right now.” AFFINITY MAGAZINE

WASI’s anthemic and relatable music is deeply rooted in their experience as outsiders. They own their voice and draw equal influence from the rebellion of the Clash and the pop sensibilities of Tegan & Sara. Not only do they write songs about defiance and shaking up the system, they live it every day. At the helm of the band are newlyweds and human rights activists Jessie Meehan and Merilou Salazar. The group developed and produce the Women Fuck Shit Up Fest that takes place in both Los Angeles and D.C., an event for women to show off their art in a safe, free and empowering environment. Their activism reached new heights last year when they single-handedly got Walgreens to establish a nationwide bathroom discrimination policy. See the video on the ACLU website HERE.

“It’s titled ‘Riot Pop,’ which is WASI’s name for their brand of music, which mashes electro-pop, hip-hop, dance-punk and garage-rock into a cocktail of self-affirmation and inclusivity. The band, founded by Buena Park natives (and now newlyweds) Merilou Salazar and Jessie Meehan, has become a beacon of positivity for youth whose identity, body type or politics has left them feeling as if they’re on the outside looking in.” –BUZZBANDS LA

This record explores themes of fear and isolation but balances that with messages of love and being comfortable in your own skin. “Riot Pop is the optimism we hold onto in the chaos of the world around us and in our heads,” says the band. They hope it will provide the same sense of security and reassurance to fans that they’ve found through their music.

“Like the rad, queer riot bands before them, this Los Angeles duo, comprised of Merilou Salazar and Jessie Meehan, is about more than just sick beats: it’s about using the emotive intensity of sound to rock the world into a better, more progressive future. “ –CURVE MAGAZINE

THE MOWGLI’S ANNOUNCE THEIR SUMMER VACATION TOUR

Square.jpg

Alt. rock, good vibes torchbearers The Mowgli’s are hitting the road this summer bringing their feel-good anthems to the East Coast and Midwest on their Summer Vacation tour, supported by Petal and Arms Akimbo.

From their beginning as a music collective in Venice Beach, California, The Mowgli’s have been writing songs of love, unity, and togetherness. Their breakout hit “San Francisco” brought them national attention and cemented the band as indie-rockers with purpose and a message. Two subsequent albums and two independent EP have captured an ever-growing fanbase drawn to their message of positivity.

“California indie collective The Mowgli's infuse their latest EP with their signature breezy style and heartwarming lyrics.” - Pop Dust

This tour comes on the heels of their second independent EP release American Feelings, a collection of songs about connection and the lack thereof in the modern world, that has been streamed over 2 million times and was released to warm praise from fans and the media alike. Billboard called the brooding song “Norman Rockwell” a“..richly textured and rhythmic track, ” Alternative Addition said “The EP features four of the band’s best songs to date,” and Unclear Magazine commented that “with nostalgic touches with a modern heartbeat, the band gives us the ballads of love and light.”

“American Feelings shows how truly versatile The Mowgli’s are as a group.”

- Highlight Magazine

The Mowgli’s - who began as a 10+ member group playing house parties and warehouse gatherings - is now led by Katie Jayne Earl with singer/guitarist Josh Hogan, drummer Andy Warren, keys player David Appelbaum and Matt Di Panni on bass. The release of their first major-label LP Waiting For The Dawn in 2013 saw immediate success with the hit single “San Francisco” and the band quickly found themselves playing to sold out crowds in clubs around the U.S. and inundated by requests for press, sponsorships and partnerships. The band’s music has accumulated 250 Million streams and counting, and they’ve graced the stages of major festivals such as Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, ACL, Firefly, Osheaga, Arroyo Seco, BottleRock, Bumbershoot and more. They’ve worked with major international brands such as Spotify, Abercrombie, Levi’s, GM, Dunkin’ Donuts, VW and Verizon and continue to spread their message of positivity not only through their music but through their work with charities such as Heal The Bay, Happy Bottoms and the International Rescue Committee.

LIZ VICE RELEASES "IT WAS GOOD"

LIZ VICE RELEASES “IT WAS GOOD” SINGLE

liz-vice-it-was-good.jpg

“Chance the Rapper and Kanye West may use gospel elements to give their music a reverent lilt, but the genre hasn’t had many crossover evangelists since Kirk Franklin’s hip-hop bombast brought it to the pop charts in the 1990s. Enter Ms. Vice, whose version of gospel is more rootsy than radio. She has a rich voice that fits easily into her groovy yet understated arrangements; the result recalls the gentle revival of artists like Leon Bridges. “ - The New York Time

Brooklyn by way of Portland, Oregon artist Liz Vice has released a new single “It Was Good.”  This song is the follow up to her sophomore album Save Me, released last year,  that debuted in the top 25 on the Billboard Gospel charts

The song was co-written with Glenn Lavender and Leslie Jordan and is based on the poem “Creation,” by James Weldon Johnson, who also wrote “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” Johnson became the national organizer for the NAACP in 1920 and edited the Book of American Negro Poetry, a major contribution to the history of African American literature. The song, like the poem, simply focuses on the beauty in the world, and what a gift it is to be alive and living on this planet.

Liz Vice is a storyteller at heart. The Portland native started her career working behind the scenes in the world of film and video, only to accidentally find herself behind the mic. Liz Vice’s sound is a fusion of Gospel and R&B, with dynamic and soulful vocals, and lyrics, deeply rooted in spirituality, that gives her work a  timeless feel. For the past four years, Vice’s music and live performances have put her on the map as an artist to watch. She has been praised and featured by Oregon Public Broadcasts’ One Song, NPR’s World Cafe and Weekend Edition, Mountain Stage, eTown, NPR’s Weekend Edition, Relevant Magazine, and more. She has shared the stage with artists such as Lake Street Dive, Rodriguez, Joss Stone, The Wood Brothers, Lecrae, Blind Boys of Alabama and performed at Mavis Staple’s 80th Birthday at the Apollo alongside David Byrne, Norah Jones, Jon Batiste, Warren Haynes and more.

Upon its release  Save Me was warmly received by fans and media alike. NPR said, “The mindfulness she brings to the stories she tells on Save Me proves essential and powerful.”  No Depression said, “Liz Vice walks the stony road to redemption, delivering tunes that celebrate the victory over the illusions that hold us down while acknowledging the heavyweight of self-doubt and missed opportunities for loving others that we bear,” and Bitch Magazine commented that “Liz Vice is unpretentious and uncomplicated on Save Me, a gospel album that aims straight for the spirit. Vice’s faith-based music, influenced by legends Mavis Staples and Sister Rosetta Tharpe, is lifting.”

Vice is currently working on her third full-length album which will come out next year.

NEXT CItY RELEASES "TELL ME"

NEXT CItY RELEASES “TELL ME”

next-city-tell-me.jpg

Los Angeles rockers NEXT CItY have released their second single “Tell Me” along with an incredible video out everywhere today. It’s hot off the success of their debut “Blue Star,” whose video has now amassed over 60K views. In addition to the release of the single, the band has also launched a Kickstarter campaign filled with exclusive merch, signed photos, personalized messages and more as rewards for their fans.

“NEXT CItY bring something a little heavier to the table, some real gritty alt rock sounds come through whilst the vocals keep the track on its radio friendly path. It’s certainly a big sound from a band who have all the potential to become a household name.” -YACK! Magazine (on “Blue Star”)

Lyrically, this song is all about the back and forth of being involved with someone, but being unsure of what they want from you. Philip Paulsen (guitarist) started with a riff and composition, then handed it off to Larsen for lyrics and melody, a perfect example of the dynamic duo’s synergetic work.

NEXT CItY is the brainchild of vocalist and actor Samuel Larsen, best known for his work on Glee as Joe Hart and his supporting role in the current hit film After (based on the novel by Anna Todd that became a worldwide phenomenon) and guitarist Paulsen. The two met while on tour together and began writing for a brand new project they wanted to be heavy in garage rock grit, layered over a foundation steeped in groove. They have a unique way of fusing their experimental energy with the modern era of rock n’ roll. With fuzzy, funk-tinged guitars and pocket beats, their sound is familiar on the ears, yet unlike anything you’ve ever heard before. The quartet is completed by the unwavering rhythm section of bassist Nick Diiorio and drummer Ben Brinckerhoff. They’ve come together to perfect their brand of guitar-driven rock influenced by heavy hitters like Death From Above 1979, The Dead Weather, and Queens of the Stone Age, all while encompassing the electric energy of funk-driven pop music that takes its cues from Prince and Michael Jackson.

“Most people probably haven’t heard of the band NEXT CItY, but all of that is about to change in the coming weeks.” -Regional Music Journal

The band will also bring their infectious sound to a live setting, playing showcases in both Los Angeles and New York this June.

WASI RELEASES "RUN"

WASI RELEASES “RUN” AHEAD OF THEIR ‘LOVE IS GAY’ PRIDE CELEBRATION TOUR

wasi-run.jpg

Los Angeles rebels WASI have released “Run” out everywhere today. This is the second single from their anticipated debut record Riot Pop coming out June 7th just in time for Pride Month. With “Run,” the band ushers in a new movement of self-empowerment. “It’s about being comfortable in your own skin,” says Wasi. “ Instead of running from pain and your own identity, it’s the decision to run with it and completely own yourself.”

“WASI is the pop band the world needs right now.” AFFINITY MAGAZINE

WASI’s anthemic songs are deeply rooted in their experience as outsiders. They own their voice in an often cloudy world. The band draws equal influence from the rebellion of the Clash and the pop sensibilities of Tegan & Sara. Not only do they write songs about defiance and shaking up the system, but they live it everyday. At the helm of the band are newlyweds and human rights activists Jessie Meehan and Merilou Salazar. The group developed and produce the Women Fuck Shit Up Fest that takes place in Los Angeles, and last year made its Washington D.C. debut.  Their activism reached new heights last year when they single-handedly got Walgreens to establish a nationwide bathroom discrimination policy. See the video on the ACLU website HERE.

In addition to working to change policies at major corporations like Walgreens, the band is heavily involved in the local community level, working with LGBTQ youth centers around the country at every tour stop. They’ll be doing the same on the Love is Gay tour, starting in June, meeting with kids in each city to talk to them about music, art and above all, spreading a message of pride and acceptance. With these ventures, they keep the themes of equality and love of self a constant in their music and lives outside of it.

“Like the rad, queer riot bands before them, this Los Angeles duo, comprised of Merilou Salazar and Jessie Meehan, is about more than just sick beats: it’s about using the emotive intensity of sound to rock the world into a better, more progressive future. “ –CURVE MAGAZINE

JAMIE MCDELL RELEASES EXTRAORDINARY GIRL

JM_AlbumCover.jpg

LISTEN TO EXTRAORDINARY GIRL: HERE

“Ringing guitar chords are backed by atmospheric layers of keyboards, but the true stunner is McDell’s unforced voice, which has already led the Americana artist to gold certifications and award nominations in her native New Zealand.”  Rolling Stone on “Extraordinary Girl” (single)

New Zealand native Jamie McDell has released her third album Extraordinary Girl out worldwide today. Independently released, the record came together between Auckland, NZ and Nashville, TN where she recorded all the tracks with award-winning Australian producer Nash Chambers. It also features a hearty cast of country music legends including Kasey Chambers, Bill Chambers and Tami Neilson.

This record reflects her deep love of the music from her childhood. It formed the fundamental elements of what inspired her about songwriting the most - honest vocals, raw acoustic guitar and deep storytelling. Being drawn to artists like James Taylor and John Denver in her early years, she booked a trip to Nashville for a change of scenery a few years ago to connect with the environment that birthed the country/folk music of her youth. It was there that she wrote the songs that would make up the fabric of this record. On this work, McDell’s vocals are the most raw and vulnerable they have ever been: powerful, honest and reflect her core listening inspirations which also includes Patty Griffin and Alison Krauss. Putting the overall feeling of the album into words wasn’t easy, but McDell reflects on the personal challenge of leaving the comfort of home to write something that was honest and true. “Nashville was me getting out of my comfort zone and finding my way back to it. The listener is getting a sincerely true collection of stories that haven’t been tampered with since they were written. They are exactly what I felt like saying/singing at the time - raw, unpolished and deeply honest.”

“Showcasing more richness and density than the typical banjo and fiddle exercise, the album contains waves of haunting tremolo guitar ("Under the Bonnet"), fuzzy squalls and heavy distortion ("3AM," "Bad Attitude"), and a keen sense for crafting rewarding, sometimes even dramatic, vocal melodies.” –All Music

The singer-songwriter, who is in her mid-twenties, has achieved an enormous amount for someone so young. Being signed to EMI at age 16 sparked the beginning of a successful musical journey, making Jamie McDell a household name across New Zealand. With the release of her debut album Six Strings and a Sailboat, she went on to achieve Gold album sales, receive three NZ Music Award nominations and win Best Pop Album. Her sophomore record Ask Me Anything gained global attention, seeing album track “Moon Shines Red” featured on hit TV show Pretty Little Liars.

“The result of her long journey from home is a stunning, 12-song collection of raw confessionals, breezy anthems and plaintive storytelling rooted in the tradition of old school country and folk balladeers.” –Wide Open Country

The feedback on the first episode, “How to Transform A Rental Space,” has been incredible thus far.  With this show, Megan is hoping that viewers walk away from the series and the individual episodes feeling informed, positive and confident about living a meaningful adult life.

COOPER & GATLIN RELEASE A STUNNING MUSIC VIDEO FOR “FRAGILE”

FEATURING NBC WORLD OF DANCE STARS KAYCEE RICE AND SEAN LEW

SK5.jpg

WATCH “FRAGILE”: HERE

Cooper & Gatlin have released a beautiful music video directed by Light Layer Productions for their new single “Fragile” featuring NBC’s World of Dance stars Kaycee Rice and Sean Lew. The raw and vulnerable nature of the track is perfectly complemented by the stunning choreography done solely by Lew. “As soon as I heard this song, I imagined a barrier where it represented the reality of what it’s like when two people aren’t ever on the same page in a relationship...we’re just really glad that we were able to share another story given by two incredibly talented artists,” Lew said.

“The world is loud [and] sometimes you need an excuse to slow down. ‘Fragile’ gives you a peaceful moment alone–so go ahead, hit repeat a few times.” –Idobi Radio

The LA brother-sister duo said “I think, to a certain extent, everyone is afraid of bringing another person in close, or telling them how they really feel, because the closer someone is, the more they can hurt you. Even with all that, in the end, it’s still worth the risk.” “Fragile” is only the pair’s third single and is hot off the success of their debut “Break” and follow up “Like You.” Their music delicately draws listeners into serious subject matters using the power of a danceable beat. The band’s prior offering “Like You” (now at over 107K views on YouTube) was described by Atwood Magazine as an “unnervingly memorable release, soaked in sunshine while also mired in emotional turmoil.” Upon its release, “Break” was featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday U.S. playlist (now with over 521K plays) and the video has now amassed over 616K views. Ultra Records artist Tep No also produced a remix of the track that he called “one of the best remixes I've made.”

The two have the brilliant ability to blend elements of both acoustic and electronic elements so seamlessly into their music. They invite you into their cleverly crafted world with lush harmonies, tight melodies and playful brother-sister dynamic. They fine-tuned their sound when the pair’s family relocated to Los Angeles in 2014 from their hometown of Franklin, Tennessee. They’ve spent the past several years honing their craft as songwriters and musicians by forging their wide array of influences together to create a sound uniquely their own. They recently wrote a batch of new left-of-center pop songs that are fun and uplifting in delivery, but still deeply personal and relatable.

“Cooper & Gatlin's latest video is simple but doesn't hold back on aesthetics. The all-too relatable lyrics and intricate acoustic guitar shine.”  – Popdust (on “Break”)

NEXT CItY ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF "BLUE STAR" + LOS ANGELES AND NEW YORK SHOWCASES

NEXT CItY ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF “BLUE STAR”

+ LOS ANGELES AND NEW YORK SHOWCASES

next city.jpg

Los Angeles band NEXT CIty is making their sonic assault on the world with the release of their debut single  “Blue Star.” NEXT CIty is the creation of vocalist (and renowned actor) Samuel Larsen, best known for his work on Glee as the Joe Hart character, and his supporting role in the current hit film After , based on the novel by Anna Todd that became a worldwide phenomenon and guitarist Philip Paulsen. The two met while on tour together and began writing for a brand new project that would be heavy in garage rock grit, layered over a foundation steeped in groove, with the intention of getting people to shake off their inhibitions and dance. The band is rounded out by bassist Nick Diiorio, and drummer Ben Brinckerhoff who have helped to perfect the band’s brand of guitar-driven rock influenced heavy hitters like Death From Above 1979, The Dead Weather and Queens of The Stone Age, all while encompassing the electric energy of funk driven pop music that takes its cues from Prince and Michael Jackson.

Following releasing solo music in the pop and funk world, Larsen had the itch to start a rock band, to write and perform with. “ ‘Blue Star’ was the first song I started working on with a band in mind”, says Larsen. “I had the riffs and lyrics for a while before I met Phil and I felt stuck,  like I couldn't fully finish it, so I handed it off to Phil and he tightened up the arrangement, added a falsetto hook in the chorus and together we added a bridge.” “Blue Star” is inspired by the dichotomy between the dream and the reality of Hollywood and how it can be the dream but also the nightmare. The song is performed from the point of Hollywood and that they are enticing the dreamer with the bright dreams, but haunting her with the harsh reality too.

Later this summer, in addition to the release of their second single "Tell Me”, the band will be playing Los Angeles on June 5th at the Peppermint Club (tickets and info HERE) and June 11 in New York at the Mercury Lounge (tickets and info HERE).

WASI RELEASES “WHAT IS RIOT POP?” & ANNOUNCE RIOT POP ALBUM + LOVE IS GAY TOUR

RP_Singles artwork_What is Riot Pop-FINAL.jpg

“WASI is the pop band the world needs right now” - AFFINITY MAGAZINE

Los Angeles band WASI is excited to introduce the world to Riot Pop, a genre ushering in a new movement of empowerment and inclusion with the release of their single  “What is Riot Pop?,” from their forthcoming album Riot Pop  due out on June 7th.

“Like the rad, queer riot bands before them, this Los Angeles duo, comprised of Merilou Salazar and Jessie Meehan, is about more than just sick beats: it’s about using the emotive intensity of sound to rock the world into a better, more progressive future. “ - CURVE MAGAZINE

So “What is Riot Pop?” It’s about being true to yourself and trusting your instincts. “It’s being on the edge of an airplane cabin ready to jump,” says Merilou Salazar (WASI co-founder), “being scared as all hell but you jump anyway because in the end life is short and you need to live it to the fullest,  then just when you think it’s all over, your parachute opens and you land safely-just like all the risks in life we’ve taken. You trust that parachute just like you trust in yourself and your gut decisions.”

“WASI…...is a pop dream for woke grrrls.” – BUST

WASI’s anthemic songs speak of their experience as outsiders and owning your voice in a cloudy world. The band draws equal influences from the rebellion of the Clash and the pop sensibilities of Tegan & Sara. Not only does WASI write songs about defiance and shaking up the system,  but they live it everyday. At the helm of the band are newlyweds and human rights activists Jessie Meehan and Merilou Salazar. The group developed and produce the Women Fuck Shit Up Fest that takes place in Los Angeles, and last year made it’s Washington DC debut,  have worked with LGBTQ youth centers around the country and on their upcoming Love is Gay tour, starting in June they will be doing the same, working with LGBTQ centers around the country meeting with kids in each city to talk to them about music, art, and above all spreading a message of pride and acceptance.

The group's activism reached the national level last year, where they single-handedly got Walgreens to establish a  nationwide bathroom discrimination policy. Two years ago, Jessie and Merilou were on their way to the Pride festival in West Hollywood and stopped at the Walgreens on Sunset and Vine. Jessie, who is a woman but tends to dress a bit more masculine asked to use the restroom and the manager on staff refused to open the women's restroom,  insisting she use the men’s room. After some humiliating and frustrating back and forth the couple went straight to the ACLU boot at the Pride festival to share their story. Jessie then worked for a year writing letters on the local level, then the state level and the ACLU stepped in when Jessie made her way to the national Walgreens headquarters and together,  they got Walgreens, with 8,000 stores in the U.S. to adopt a nationwide policy to address bathroom discrimination. See the video on the ACLU website HERE.

COOPER & GATLIN RELEASE “FRAGILE”

FragileCover-FINAL.jpg

Alternative pop duo Cooper & Gatlin have released their beautifully raw new single “Fragile” out everywhere today. The brother-sister pair said of their latest release, “I think, to a certain extent, everyone is afraid of bringing another person in close, or telling them how they really feel, because the closer someone is, the more they can hurt you. Even with all that, in the end, it’s still worth the risk.”

“It’s hard to believe that ‘Like You’ is only the second single released by this duo. Most artists take a while to find their sound, but Cooper & Gatlin have got theirs down. They’ve found their voice. “Like You” is an upbeat anthem with a unique sound. The catchy beat, clever lyrics, and smooth vocals make for a perfect addition to all of your playlists.”

Affinity Magazine (on “Like You”)

Their previous single “Like You” was inspired by observing a rocky child-parent relationship where the roles were reversed and the child became the parent. Armed with a catchy hook and infectious production from Steve Solomon (who produced the James Arthur hit “Say You Won’t Let Go” which has surpassed 1 Billion streams), they delicately draw the listener into a serious subject matter using the power of a danceable beat. The success of the track and video (now at over 106K views) came hot on the heels of their debut single “Break,” a rhythmic and relatable tune about the stoic face you put on in front of ex- lovers. Upon its release the track was featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday U.S. playlist (now with over 510K plays) and the video has now amassed over 615K views. Ultra Records artist Tep No also produced a remix of the track that he even called “one of the best remixes I've made.”

KEZAR RELEASES “FEELINGS”

Feelings-final3.jpg

Indie pop band Kezar has released their groove-laden third single “Feelings” out everywhere today. “Feelings" was the first song penned for the project. It will always be a milestone for frontman Jack Mosbacher’s life who said "in a few days, we found a new sound, a new attitude and a new chapter in our lives. It’s a song about a woman who is totally in control, from a man’s perspective - she is confident and fearless. As my mother’s son and sister’s brother, I hope that the song is entertaining and fun but also an anthem for empowerment and the unmatchable strength of women."

Previously, they released their incredible debut “(Tell Me) It’s Not Love” followed by “Let’s Talk About You.” Working with producer K-Kov on both tracks (Keith Urban, Justin Timberlake), they managed to create two highly danceable earworms packed with joy and romance. The video for their debut (that has now amassed over 110,000 views), was inspired by the beautiful aesthetic of the classic tale Pride & Prejudice. The track was also added to Spotify’s official Love Pop and Young & Free playlists.

“(Tell Me) It’s Not Love,” [is] an unmistakably radio-ready pop bop. Blending soulful vocals with a dazzling array of modern indie-pop elements, it’s an electric debut destined for major attention. We’re seeing KEZAR in bright lights on famous marquees. We’re hearing his neon anthems on Top 40. We’re thinking he just carved himself a well-deserved spot in the wild world of pop stardom.”  The Music Mermaid

Seasoned musician Jack Mosbacher is the mastermind behind Kezar. He comes from a strong soul background and the more you listen to each cleverly crafted beat, the more you recognize it as the backbone of his newfound signature pop style. Mosbacher also has a deep admiration and respect for the artists that came before him. Using state-of-the-art synthesizer technology, he and the producers added throwback elements from hip-hop’s glory days, like the big 808 drum machines on Run-DMC and NWA records and stacked backing vocals and bass synths reminiscent of the 2000’s Hyphy Movement – homages to Mac Dre, Mistah F.A.B., Keak da Sneak, and Traxamillion.

“The song is the perfect combination of soul and modern pop” Affinity Magazine (on “Let’s Talk About You”)

When choosing a name for this project, Mosbacher wanted to stay true to his hometown of San Francisco by naming it after Kezar Stadium in the Haight-Ashbury district. Choosing the original home of the 49ers and a now music venue that played host to music legends such as Led Zeppelin, Santana and The Grateful Dead, seemed like the perfect segway into a new era of his career while staying true to his roots. While soul will always stay the backbone of Kezar’s music, he also draws inspiration from contemporary pop artists like Shawn Mendes, Bruno Mars and Sam Smith.
