Fifteen years old and having just released her debut album, new singer/songwriter Queeva took the time to chat to us about her new record and her career.
Hannah May Allison has been in Nashville for six years. Six years consisting of attending classes at Belmont University where she earned her degree in songwriting and music business, and of writing countless songs for other people. But she's recently turned more of her focus onto being an artist in her own right.
In the blistering heat of July, South Florida-raised Ashley Briggs just dropped her new single "Summer Heat."
Country-pop singer/songwriter Taylor Acorn has just released her new single, “Red White,” her first solo release since her debut EP, Put It In A Song in 2017.
Morgan Johnston is always playing Writer’s Rounds. For those of you not familiar with the term, a ‘Writer’s Round’ is when a group of songwriters take the stage at a venue in Nashville and simply go around and play the songs they have been writing. Hence the term, ‘Writer’s Round.’ Johnston is an artist, but being an artist includes being a songwriter, at least to her. So it's not uncommon to see her playing one.
Kelsey Lamb’s song “Little By Little” sounds like the country-pop perfection of a seasoned professional, but it’s actually the first song the singer/songwriter has ever released. She wrote the song with Jesse Labelle and Erik DiNardo. “It actually took us three writing sessions to finish it!’ Lamb said in a recent email interview. “I originally brought this title to Erik and immediately knew this was going to be a special song. Erik then brought Jesse on to help us finish the song, which is exactly the extra creative mind that we needed to wrap the song up.”
Taylor Grace is a high school graduate, a songwriter, and the artist behind one of the most honest and prolific tracks released so far in 2018. The catch is — she’s only 16. I had the chance to chat with Taylor about that song, “Far From Perfect,” her life, and her goals for the next couple years.
When JoLivi went into a session to write her single, “Crooked Crown,” all she knew about the song was that it had to had a specific guitar lick she had thought up in her head. “I came in with a guitar hook I wanted to use, the one’s that’s on Crooked Crown now,” she said in an interview recently. That guitar lick led to the creation of her new single, “Crooked Crown,” that is bound to be one of her most successful songs yet.
There's new music out every Friday — look at Spotify's "New Music Friday" playlist for a whole list of songs released yesterday. But if you listen to just one new song today, it should be this one.
