SPENCER’s debut single “Or So I Thought” is a spectacle of alt-pop (single premiere)

“Dare to be different”. It’s a statement that many of us strive to achieve, but we often fail to live up to this mantra. Sophie Lewis, however, personifies the phrase and then some.

Lavender Child delivers ethereal bliss on her debut single “Happy Illusions” (premiere)

You’re never too old to believe in fairy tales or fantasies.

Vacances – “Don’t Go” (single premiere)

Every one loves pop music. Of course, there is a lot of diversity within the genre and various sub-categories.

Call it the trifecta – the perfect trifecta […]

Bodies Be Rivers – “None The Wiser” (single premiere)

There are as many bands in New York City’s five boroughs as there are delicatessens and pizzerias. With so much selection, how does one rise above the pack and become among the Big Apple’s elite?

ISADORA – “P.O.M” (single premiere)

Timing is everything. We are strong believers in this old adage. Whether it is meeting someone by chance or even planning when to have dinner, timing is important.

Radio Wolf – “Song on the Radio” (feat. Marika Gauci) (single premiere)

No matter your age, most everyone has a soft spot for ’80s music. Unlike any other period, the music of that era was vibrant and infectious.

Even today, we still grin and momentarily escape when the radio […]
