Emily Hackett returns to her singer/songwriter roots on new live performance video for future album track, “Once In A While.”
Songwriter Caitlyn Smith has written hundreds of songs, self-released three full-length records and worked her butt off in the music industry for years. But to the public, Starfire is their first introduction to her. And what an introduction it is.
Muscle Shoals, Alabama native Taylor Grace is only sixteen, and her perspective matches her age. But her first release to iTunes, “Far From Perfect” contains a maturity and reflection not often found in a writer so young.
The art of a simple mini-movie music video has been lost in recent years. In a world of the dance-heavy videos Beyoncé and Bruno Mars are releasing, along with the extensive and slightly confusing videos of Taylor Swift, simple music videos are rarely done and under appreciated. British singer/songwriter Megan O’Neill’s new music video for “Ghost of You” is a storytelling video at its best.
An infectious mix of pop and soul, Heather Batchelor is one of the Nashville pop scene’s brightest new stars.
As more and more women are coming together to say ‘Times Up’ to sexual harassment in the entertainment industry, women in country music are beginning to bring the conversation into a genre so plagued with misogyny and harassment.
Kalie Shorr’s latest project is a complete reinvention of her sound. Her last project, Slingshot and the Y2k Mixtape before that both embraced the pop-country sound that’s fairly popular right now among young artists. But Awake sounds unlike anything country singers are releasing these days. A couple years ago, Shorr’s little slogan was ‘A little bit country, a little bit rock and roll.’ Awake is her return to that, and the first time she’s fully embraced all of her influences on a project.
I have to say, I didn’t think I would be writing about Taylor Swift again so soon.
Name a more iconic duo than Lori McKenna’s songwriting and Natalie Stovall’s vocals. I’ll wait.
Welcome to 2018! This little monthly playlist post is something I’m going to be continuing all year, and it will continue to cover artists on SoundCloud. It’s easy to find great Spotify playlists, but great country music on SoundCloud is a little harder to find. To keep updated on all of my favorite songs on SoundCloud over the next year, keep an eye on the website at the beginning of every month, and follow me on the streaming service. Without further ado, here is the January Playlist.
