Classical crossover soprano singer Summer Watson has recently made the headlines as she entered the world of songwriting with two new releases, “Break The Silence” and “Unveiled.” Off her upcoming album, both tracks show Summer Watson at her highest inspiration, and well determined to share her wisdom with the masses. Having overcome stage 4 breast cancer as well as being a survivor of a horrific train accident, she knows the value of being alive better than most. In a way, her music is aimed at reviving our appreciation and gratitude for life as well as an encouragement to speak up and share our true selves with the world rather than keeping things buried inside for years.
Her soft soprano vocal performance is deeply moving both on “Break The Silence” and “Unveiled,” paving the way for a resounding success when the full album gets finally released.
Have a listen for yourself to “Unveiled” below and dive deep into Summer Watson’s magical voice:
London-based producer Seekay returns with a deeply moving piece, a single titled “Wiser.” The song is about abuse and how naive we can be when we are young, accepting the unacceptable. Seekay has joined forces with the beautiful vocalist Chloe who has done a fantastic job at understanding Seekay’s main artistic intention. The electronica-pop track is one of the most accomplished releases by Seekay so far, and following-up on the astonishing “Hold” and “Fall.”
He has made it his specialty to blend the deepest lyrics with atmospheric soundscapes that will take listeners on a unique journey where meaning, beauty, and pain dance all together in a perfectly synchronized ballet of sounds.
Andy Keels got started with singing and writing music when he was in secondary school and ever since he never missed the opportunity to improve and perform whenever he could. Inspired by representatives of many different genres like Boys to Men, Johnny Cash, Kurt Cobain, The Rolling Stones, Oasis, and songwriter and producer Max Martin (NSYNC), Andy made a decision on how exactly he wants to sound like and we love it.
Releasing “Dead To Me” off his upcoming EP as the first one to make the right first impression we hope that the rest of the tracklist won’t differ much and will burst a range of indie/pop/rock influences with raw and rocky undertones as “Dead To Me” does. Nonetheless, this song is forming a flawless, ingenious artistic statement by someone who has clearly been working hard in bringing his craft closer to impeccability.It may safely be said that it is not an easy job to make any kind of music sound this fresh and perfect nowadays.
During recent years, disco vibe lovers definitely have felt the deficit of the ’70s 80’s mainstream. There are very few releases in the then-popular genre. However, young Baie-Saint-Paul, Canada-based singer-songwriter Yann Brassard brings back the quality disco sound with his new release “Overnight.” Unlike his previous releases, “Mission Commando” and “Dangereuse,” both in French, the release is English.
The artist shows his talent and full potential with “Overnight.” Many knew about his abilities way before when he was a finalist of Québec’s La Voix 6. However, the wide audience got the chance to see his full palette with “Overnight.” The fact that Yann uses his mouth only to make all the instrumental sounds, besides the drum parts, shows his uniqueness and multi-talented creative mind.
Vallyre, Boston-based singer-songwriter, released her new song, “Bloodsweat,” an explosive and enchanting pop ballad with mystic soundscapes and warm vocals.

The visuals transcend her powerful, driven energy and passion, all of which are inseparable components of the song. The singer also enjoys acting in her spare time, explaining the artistic approach to the music video. The song is filled with beautiful and melodic hooks. Her vocals, appearance, and the mood of the music video are all playful yet inspiring in-depth. There is a certain kind of darkness existing in every element in all positivity and light of the release. Altogether, the release is a perfect example of detailed work and talent.

However, these days the internet is abuzz with celebrations of the election results, as well as Kamala Harris being the first (half) Indian in the White House.Amirah, being half-Indian herself is using two Indian instruments tanpura and tabla on “Tell Me” while blending them with modern harmonies of Western music creating a perfect melting pot of cultures: It embodies the perfect scene where East meets West.

Going back to the past is never easy. The journey opens your soul as a vulnerable wound and caresses it unapologetically. That is the exact feeling you will get from Swedish singer and songwriter Elin Wolf‘s new radio-ready sounding release “Nighttrain To Yosemite.” From the very first 60s, 70s inspired guitar tunes playing with the most fragile strings of your heart and from the very first lyrics “sitting on a night train, thinking of the past,” your soul will turn upside-down, your emotions will burst from the depths you forgot about.
Elin goes back to her past and exposes herself fully during her trip in “Nighttrain To Yosemite,” and you will involuntarily find yourself exposed in a metaphorical, symbolic train of your own.

New Album: Michele Garruti Helps Us Find Beauty In The Darkest Places – Glitch
Throughout the history of Classical music, composers have expanded the limits of their art into their eras. While one era worships perfect counterpoint and makes sure to avoid harmonic dissonance, other eras see a devotion in using clustered chords, repetition of the melodies, and even silence or noise for contemporary artists. For our particular era, the modern one, one of the most interesting composers regarding the innovations he brings to the classical genre is Michele Garruti, the Italian composer who is now based in London.
He has just released his latest oeuvre; 15 compositions taking the form of an album he titled Glitch. The title refers to something that would suffer a sudden malfunction or fault, and if we translate it to life or music, it is Michele Garruti’s way to bring imperfection into reality, and beauty where it should not be.
Glitch is bathed in a fairy atmosphere by Garruti’s vision, which creates a music based on slow repetitions of short patterns, and gradual evolutions of the moments, scenery, events, or feeling he is sharing with the listener, never straining for effect, and with a striking purity of style. Glitch is a full-fledged work that marks the beginning of a new horizon for Michele Garruti, who will now be considered as a pioneering Neo-Classical composer turning into gold every note he envisions.
Hipster Conspiracy Comes In Full Force With Debut Album Dysphoria
Hipster Conspiracy comes in full force with her debut LP Dysphoria. With the incorporation of her masterful musical technique and urban styled vocals, this magnificent tracklist boasts a whole lot of talent. Each instrument is gradually plugged in throughout the 1 songs on the album, subtly adding layers that prove to be highly appealing with each listen being different. The songs perfectly captures the emotions and pain of Hipster Conspiracy’s struggle towards accepting her transgender identity, with mental issues, substance abuse and depression being part of her daily life during those years.
It feels like the album was so natural to create for Hipster Conspiracy, as it represents so well every aspect of her journey. Dysphoria captures the difficulty of being a transgender artist, even in 2020, and we cannot but support such a talent courageously sharing her story so that others don’t have to suffer the same pain in their lives. Be sure to keep an eye out for this Dark-Hip-Hop powerhouse’s next release.
Fly, Shine & Stream New Electro-Rap Song From President Of Pop
President Of Pop, or POP as he calls himself followed up on his debut single and anti social media manifesto titled “Google-ized by Google’s Eyes, (The No Internet Song).” His new track is called ‘Fly/Shy’
As the press release explains: ‘Fly/Shine,’ is an artistic act reminding everyone to listen to their heart, and the power they can access and feel when doing so. The President of POP points out the importance of listening to our inner voice, believing and chasing our dreams, rather than thinking we are losers. This empowering song sustains the momentum initiated by the previously released one against social media, “Google-ized by Google’s Eyes, (The No Internet Song),” two intelligent and honest songs that expose the listener to their own reality and habits.
Clearly, POP is on a mission to raise awareness on important topics through his music. To make his statement noticeable, he uses very unique tunes while composing his tracks. ‘Fly/Shine’ includes his sharp rap flow, synth, and subtle pads he pulls out on the beat, intensifying the mood and the message alongside it. ‘Fly/Shine’ is interesting from the point of overall aesthetics – for some the song might be too loud, too busy, and too overdone, but we find it somewhat consistent. As we dive deep into his lyrics, we can hear the balance between sounds, and get the hint that all of the chaos was created intentionally. Good work!

As he set the bars pretty high with this first-ever release, his rapidly growing fanbase expected a big deal to follow up, and while we were all replaying ‘Emptiness’ Lékan Tella prepared a bomb titled ‘Savannah Red.’

Lékan Tella collaborated with Jay Boyington, Vivian Cheng, Jack Rumble who directed the jaw-dropping visuals. The plot is pretty simple: someone is unhappy in a relationship and goes out to find some cheer-up rebounds. The aesthetics and delivery is a thing to focus on.
