"Easy"

When the scope of talent and motivation match, magic undoubtedly occurs. Meet 19-year-old New Jersey-born singer, songwriter, and vocalist Frawley. Not only does she possess a traffic-stopping voice, mile-wide vocal range, deep insight, and identifiable lyricism, but her ambition also goes just as far. She introduces a singular sound on the self-written “Easy”. The single’s musical palette encompasses finger-snaps and an electronic ebb and flow as her expansive vocals take flight.

"Vertigo"

It’s said the best singers wear their hearts on their sleeves, and this is certainly true of 21 year old folk-pop savant Emma Charles. Blending acoustic Americana vibes with savvy electronica soundscapes, Emma’s voice is a compelling vehicle for her lyrical tapestry of heartbreak and hope. Growing up in tiny Westport, Connecticut, Emma was deeply influenced by Carole King and Joni Mitchell. She soon spread her wings, earning a vocal scholarship at the prestigious Berklee College of Music. Since graduating Emma has thrown herself into live performances, including with mentor Paula Cole. She also spent much of this year on national tours with Howie Day & Tyler Hilton, becoming act to watch in 2019. Emma has been interviewed for The Huffington Post, Buzzbands.la and Voyage LA. She is currently working with Uber- producer Doug Schadt (Maggie Rogers, SHAED, Ashe) and her debut EP will be out later this year.

LOLO ZOUAÏ

"Caffeine"

Brooklyn-based singer Lolo Zouaï describes her songs as “bittersweet bangers,” a blend of wistful emotions and hard-hitting beats. Her sound is shaped by her French-Algerian background and her Bay Area upbringing – immigrating to San Francisco from Paris after her parents won the Visa lottery. You can hear the range of these cultural influences in her music: Arabic runs from Algerian rai music, lyrics that seamlessly switch between French and English, and genre-spanning production. Consider her earliest influences (which range from E-40 to Edith Piaf) and fans get a sense of Lolo’s artistic ethos: multi-dimensional, multi-lingual, autobiographical, and instinctively experimental. She’s sweetly sensual yet dark and moody – the turn-up Francoise Hardy. In the year and a half since she released her breakout single, “High Highs to Low Lows,” Lolo has independently released eight more singles and done three tours, playing sold out shows in Paris, LA, Toronto, London, and NY, as well as a stint opening for Alina Baraz on a sold out West Coast tour. She’s a self-taught songwriter and producer who cowrote “Still Down” featured on H.E.R.’s Grammy-winning self-titled album. Most recently, Lolo released Ocean Beach, a double A-side EP featuring a gorgeous, gripping collaboration with Blood Orange and a self-produced ode to her hometown of San Francisco. It’s only been a few years since Lolo, now 24, was messing around with GarageBand on her iPhone to bring her earliest songs to life – recreating beats from rap songs she loved and laying her own melodies over them. Her skill in songwriting and production has only expanded since, and her dedication paid off: in 2017, Lolo was awarded the Abe Olman Scholarship for young songwriters from the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Lolo’s first full length album, High Highs to Low Lows, is a cohesive, curated collection of her interests and experiences – a mix of hardhitting tracks and introspective writing, threaded with Arabic melodies and classical French influences. “Moi” is a sultry, defiant record, “Ride” showcases Lolo’s vocal skills and hit-making prowess, and “Summers in Vegas” is a tender, melodic song about her childhood trips to Las Vegas to visit her father’s pizza place. The result is fresh, distinctive, and singular – a truly global debut.

"All Day”

23-year-old Pop sensation John Lindahl’s resume is already filled with big moments, yet checkered with obstacles along the
way. Now, however, it’s his time to shine. Armed with his self-produced and written debut single “All Day” off his upcoming album via Logic’s BobbyBoy Records/Def Jam, John Lindahl is finally ready to become a household name. While his album will delve deeply into his journey, his single “All Day” will serve as the introduction to an artist who has weathered storms very early on in his career, and is now ready to celebrate his labor of love. It’s a long time coming.

"Pop Out" 

Polo G is a twenty-year-old recording artist and Chicago native. Aptly named Polo G after his favorite lifestyle brand, Polo by Ralph Lauren, and his slain friend named Gucci. Polo G is determined to leave his mark on the hip hop community. Polo G released his debut album, Die A Legend (June 2019), to critical acclaim, reaching #1 on the Billboard Top Rap Albums chart for 2 consecutive weeks. Die A Legend did not disappoint, as it boasts the 2x Platinum RIAA certified and billboard charting hit single “Pop Out” featuring Lil TJay. Polo G describes his music as “powerful and heartfelt”. His message, coupled with the buzz he’s accumulated in a short time, positions him as one to watch. Before Lil TJay became the Internet heartthrob with delectable deliveries and streams in the multi-millions, he was just a kid from the Bronx with an equal love for Jay-Z bars and Justin Bieber songs. His mother’s favorite artists (Usher, Michael Jackson) taught him melody. Today, that melody is the 17-year-old’s gift as well as a catalyst for his embryonic hip-hop stardom. Raised in an NYC neighborhood saturated with gang culture and deficient of positivity, Lil TJay eventually earned himself a year of incarceration. Upon release, he committed himself to finding legal routes toward his music dreams. The studio would be his saving grace and destiny. His first independent hits summoned major record labels, resulting in Lil TJay’s first courting season. He weathered the rush, eventually deciding to share a home with Beyonce and Pharrell inside Columbia Records. With 675K Instagram fans and platinum SoundCloud status, TJay is a rapidly rising star, according to the cream of music media: Pitchfork to The New York Times to Fader to Rolling Stone to countless more.
