British singer-songwriter Jacob Browne releases his brand new single “Say Something” today, an infectiously rhythmic pop song about the tension that arises when communication breaks down in a relationship. “I remember getting to the studio the day of writing and felt so trapped in my relationship. I had been with my partner for over four years, but things just didn’t feel right and we weren’t talking as honestly as we used to. I was so madly in love, but the communication between us was breaking down to a point of no return. After messaging her a few times with no reply and having already confided in my struggles with my songwriting partner; that’s when “Say Something” was born. After this point, we knew we needed to create a production that was extremely powerful and exceptionally melodic as to ensure we were matching the emotive story that we had come up […]

When Scary Pockets joined our roster back in March it seemed less like an artist signing than a full-on enterprise level partnership. The band is like a well-oiled machine, relentlessly cranking out a new cover every week accompanied by a professionally filmed live video posted to their highly successful YouTube channel. Their massive catalog has single-handedly more than tripled our covers library, opening up some excellent opportunities for us to work on productions requiring a degree of recognizability. This week Scary Pockets released a new cover of one of our all-time favorites, the Isley Brothers classic “It’s Your Thing”. This isn’t so much of a reinterpretation as it is a gender flip, with the fabulous Brooke Simpson absolutely crushing it on vocals. Scary Pockets is comprised of two core members, musicians Ryan Lerman (John Legend, Michael Buble, Ben Folds) and Jack Conte (Pomplamoose, CEO of Patreon), featuring some of LA’s […]

Dan Berk is a bit obsessive, which might actually be his secret weapon. As a child, his deep love for acoustic cover artists like Leroy Sanchez, Megan Davies, Boyce Avenue and Emma Heesters led him to start over-analyzing every detail of the craft. He soon found himself cracking the code to the perfect acoustic cover and set out to begin recording his own. Starting in 2018, Dan released a steady string of acoustic covers that quickly racked up well over 100 million streams on Spotify. These covers seemed to resonate deeply with the Gen Z crowd who found comfort in his emotional renditions of songs like “Solo”, “Burn”, “Hey Brother” and “Ruin My Life”. Now with a devoted fan base of 1.1 million Spotify monthly listeners, Dan Berk is moving into the next phase of his career by finding his own voice as an artist. This past week he debuted […]

Rochelle Bloom doesn’t seem to care much about what other rappers are doing these days. Her debut album “Partly Cloudy” is not trendy, you surely won’t find anything on the radio that sounds quite like it. Her music projects her own individual aesthetic; sexy but not sexual, dark but positive, cerebral yet poetic. Clean mixes not needed. The album release arrives with a beautifully filmed music video for the lead single “Stories I Create In My Head”, directed by Derek Evans. The video is stark and unsettling, as is the video’s emotional narrative about the struggles of family life, what defines success and living up to the expectations of others. Still fairly new to the Atlanta hip hop scene, Rochelle Bloom has already developed her own unique sound on her own terms. Having just had her very first placement earlier this year with her song “Dandylion” on CW’s “Charmed”, things […]

We all have regrets, and from time to time our mind wanders to what might have been had we made different choices. No decision impacts us more deeply than those relating to love, which for better or worse can completely reroute the course of our lives. It’s this concept that Beth Crowley contemplates in her poignant new single “Storm Chaser”.  For over a decade, Nashville singer-songwriter Beth Crowley has been writing and recording songs inspired by Young Adult Novels such as Dark Artifices, Divergent, The Lunar Chronicles, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, The Fault in Our Stars and Shatter Me.

One of the best things about working with indie artists nowadays is that the internet has all but shattered the paradigm that brilliant artists are only found in major cities. The truth is there is incredible art being made everywhere, and it’s inspiring to live in a time where you can write a song and get it out to the world with little more than a laptop. 22-year-old Blayne B. lives in Great Bend, a small town in Kansas with a population of just under 16,000. Releasing his first single at just 12 years old, he’s spent the past decade prolifically writing songs exploring themes of intimacy, identity, anxiety, substance abuse, and depression. Equally adept at both rapping and singing and with a talent for melody far beyond his years, Blayne’s music doesn’t fit neatly into any one genre. But the raw emotion in his songwriting is universal and undeniable. […]
