“Take It All Back 2.0”
After garnering early fans and collaborators such as Rick Ross, Avicii, Machine Gun Kelly, and Bibi Bourelly, Circa 13/Def Jam Recordings artist Earl St. Clair is ready to introduce himself to the world on his debut EP My Name Is Earl out on March 2nd. The Ohio bred St. Clair possesses a massive talent that’s refreshingly modern yet hearkens back to the soul greats. Laced with grit and sounding ripped from the depths of his soul, his voice still manages to skip lightly over hooks on tracks like “Feeling Alive” that lodge in your head for days. Most recently he’s performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden, CBS’ “NCSI: New Orleans” and was called a “Soul-revivalist” by the New York Tim
Sharp, smart, and sassy with a pen (or smartphone) and blessed with an impressive voice, Orlando-raised and Nashville-based singer and songwriter Tayler Buono (pronounced bo-no) brings unabashed honesty and clever lyricism to Pop, serving up anthems that are equally hummable and hashtag-able. Without a label or any traditional promotion, her 2016 independent single “Technically Single” earned a place on Spotify’s coveted “New Music Friday” playlist, amassing 20 million streams. Along the way, she garnered early acclaim from the likes of Pop Crush, Girl’s Life, The 405, and many more. Signing to RCA Records, Tayler’s forthcoming 2017 EP properly introduces her inimitable style.
“Tired Of Talking”
A standout vocalist with a natural gift for writing fresh, infectious pop that oozes soul, 24-year-old Lotta Lindgren aka LÉON is Sweden’s latest great pop export. She is a rarity as a young, self-contained, and grounded artist who has such a potent, authentic musical identity. Together with her production partner Agrin Rahmani, they’ve crafted a sound that is best described as ‘Future Retro.’ She posted her first single “Tired of Talking” in 2015 with the hope that her circle of friends in Stockholm might hear it. The song put LÉON on the map across the world when it captured the blogosphere and hit the #1 spot on HypeMachine last year. “Tired of Talking” was featured on her debut EP “Treasure,” has notched over 45 Million streams to date and received critical praise from GLAMOUR, InStyle, Noisey, PAPER, NYLON and more. The singer-songwriter made her US television debut on The Late Late Show with James Corden last summer and recently released her sophomore EP, ‘For You.’ The 4-song EP features title track “For You,” along with the irresistible gems “Sleep Deprived,” “Liar” and “Think About You.” The stunning compilation is a first look into what’s to come from LÉON’s debut album due to release later this year.
Mount Holly is an alternative rock band from Southern California featuring singer Jameson Burt, guitarist Nick Perri, bassist Deanna Passarella and drummer John Bach. The group has received praise from rock publications worldwide including Team Rock, Screamer Magazine and Brave Words. Mount Holly were hand selected by Hasbro to be the lead artist for one of their latest soundtracks in 2016. They were also chosen to be the sole performers at the Mashable House during the 2016 SXSW Interactive week. Mount Holly’s 1st music video “Stride By Stride” is out now, and their full-length record is slated for release in the summer of 2017 via Razor & Tie Music.
“Work The Middle”
In early 2016, L.A.-based artist Alex Aiono had already amassed a following of millions by creating his own “flipped” versions of popular songs. From a one room apartment where he and his family of six lived, he created his own stage. But then he posted a video where he performed a cleverly arranged mashup of Drake’s “One Dance” and Nicky Jam’s “Hasta el Amanecer.” Revealing his soulful vocals, effortless charisma, and flawless skills at making beats and playing guitar, the video fast went viral and amassed more than 50 million views. For all its catchy perfection, Alex’s “One Dance” mash-up only hints at the scope of his talents. A 21-year-old singer/songwriter who plays a half-dozen instruments, Alex is a curator of one of the fastest growing YouTube channels in the world. His debut single “Work The Middle” showcases his commanding vocals and irresistible energy, setting the infectious melody to a bouncing dancehall groove.
