What’s Next – hot up and coming artists on your new NOW album


Fresh with solid star power is the best way to describe the 15-year-old pop sensation, Alex B. Alex possesses that combination of adorable looks and incredible musical talent that have made him a rising star with an exponentially growing fan base.

Alex’s musical ability came early and naturally to him. He started performing at age 7, and from then he has essentially captivated every audience with his immense vocal talent and unforgettable stage presence. Not only does Alex sing, he also plays piano and guitar.

Recently Alex caught the eye of the mega hit making producer, Jim Beanz. Jim had just wrapped up all of the song writing and music production for the first season of the #1 TV show in the country, “Empire”, so he signed Alex immediately and the two have been crafting hits ever since. There is no doubt that Alex B is destined to be the next pop superstar of his generation… so get to know him NOW!


Los Angeles songstress BANKS released her highly anticipated debut album, GODDESS this September, which is a gorgeous fourteen song collection that instantly affirms why the bewitching and beguiling singer has rapidly become one of 2014’s most exciting new artists. Since the release of her debut EP, LONDON, in 2013 BANKS has gone from being L.A.’s best kept secret to an international phenomenon who has sold-out headlining shows around the world, graced the cover of V Magazine’s music issue alongside Lorde and Haim, and landed in the Top 3 of BBC’s highly lauded Sound of 2014 poll, whose previous nominees have included Adele, Frank Ocean, Sam Smith, and more.

The EP’s four luminous tracks introduced music lovers to BANKS’ dark sonic world – a place where mid-90s Aaliyah R&B meets glitch electro sparks; where the intense emotionality of early Fiona Apple meets an expressive, velveteen voice capable of wrapping itself around a perfectly- formed chorus. On GODDESS, BANKS delivers on these sounds and more.

The debut is a hypnotic, visceral debut – a testament to BANKS’ core songwriting chops and her innovative production choices.


Elijah Blake embodies music’s paradigm shift. He is not merely to be introduced as a new artist, but rather rightfully congratulated for his accomplishments to date: winning a GRAMMY Award for writing Usher’s hit song “Climax;” writing for/with Rihanna, Nas, Alicia Keys, Britney Spears, and Mary J. Blige; appearing on collaborations with Rick Ross, the Game, Meek Mill, Common, and Keyshia Cole; recording a song with Bono, Kanye West, and Swizz Beatz; signing to legendary producer No I.D.’s ARTium imprint on Def Jam Records; all while he prepares his major label debut album.

Born in the Dominican Republic and raised in Florida, at 16, he slept on Trey Songz’ couch to learn the nuances of songwriting, only to later write songs for him. Eventually, his compositions turned No I.D.’s notoriously discerning head, prompting No I.D. to ink Elijah to his ARTium production house. In 2012, he released his first EP Bijoux 22 featuring the Common-assisted “X.O.X.” The EP introduced Elijah to the public as an artist, captivating them with his lyrics and melodies.

Today, Elijah is visibly out in front as he and his mentor champion R&B’s renaissance. After last year’s release of “Drift” featuring only Blake and J. Cole and produced mostly by No I.D, Blake’s fans got a taste of his signature sound and dedication to advancing the culture of R&B.


23 year-old New York local, Jessica Anne Newham, known as Betty Who, hails from Sydney, Australia. She began playing cello at the age of four, taught herself piano and guitar and wrote her first songs at age 14. Praised for her “distinctly bright voice and arresting pop textures” (Billboard), Betty Who has been described as a mixture of “early Madonna,” “Katy Perry and Robyn, with spunk and confidence” (NY Magazine). The “smart, infectious” (Elle) songwriting on her new EP has solidified her place as “the next great pop star” (Idolator).

The 80’s-inspired pop masterpiece Take Me When You Go, Who’s debut album released on October 7, 2014, and co-produced by Peter Thomas, includes previous EP breakouts “Somebody Loves You”, “High Society” , “Heartbreak Dream” and “Alone Again”. Additional tracks were produced by Martin Johnson, Starsmith and Claude Kelly.

Betty Who has sold out her headliner tours, performed on Late Night with Seth Meyers, and has toured with Kiesza, Katy Perry and Kylie Minogue.


Jukebox the Ghost formed in Washington DC before relocating to their current home base of Brooklyn where they lead a burgeoning scene of melodic alternative rock. They’ve already headlined and sold-out such prestigious venues as Irving Plaza in NYC and The El Rey in LA.
