CELESTE BUCKINGHAM “UNPREDICTABLE”
“‘Unpredictable’ is an up-tempo track that has a subtle swing influence when things kick in during the chorus. Celeste’s vocals take charge, her soulful delivery reminiscent of Joss Stone circa 2004.” – PopCrush
“Writing this song was like writing a new chapter to a book. It felt like I was moving forward and accepting that life is almost always unpredictable. But I shouldn’t be afraid of the unknown, so I hope this song helps us all feel a little better about our rough moments.” – Celeste Buckingham

A-1 “INVISIBLE MAN”
San Francisco’s A-1 has to be one of hip-hop’s most introspective writers. Premiered by Noisey, the David Dutton-directed video for “Invisible Man” “shows what life is like in the city for someone who grew up before the city became a playground for dudes with too much money.” Remixing XXYYXX’s “About You,” A-1 juxtaposes the highs and lows of an individual that’s over-exposed and ultimately engulfed in drug culture. “The beat is low and steady, a perfect platform for A-1’s rhymes to creep and hit from verse to verse,” Noisey added. “A-1 manages to keep his rhymes succinct and meaningful without making his tracks corny or overwrought. The perfect track ti bump, no matter where you’re at.”

ALEX FAITH & DRE MURRAY VIDEO
“Living good with closed eyes…dreaming” is part of the chorus in City of Nightmares II that is melodically sang by featured artist Ada-L; talking about the pleasure one has and fights to keep in ignorance while they are heading straight for destruction.
Dre opening the song with, “wake up, wake up, mindset cake up, cake up, gotta get a couple dollars before I get followed in a white van take up…I then traded life for my soul…” speaks to the reality of what Alex and Dre would say a nightmare is. It is not things going wrong, but it is things going great according to the rules of your hood, while the rules of God are forever ignored, and the belief that because things are “good” now, that they it’ll be all good then.
ZEDD RELEASES NEW TRACK “ADDICTED TO A MEMORY” FEAT. BAHARI

KEN WILL MORTON ALBUM #7
The prolific Athens, Georgia based songwriter, Ken Will Morton, will release his 7th full-length release All’s Fair In Love & War on Rara Avis Records on June 5, 2015.
All’s Fair In Love & War is the follow up to his highly acclaimed 2012 release, Slow Burn. The new recording compiles 19 new songs (plus a hidden track) written in the wake of the dissolution of a long term relationship and with Morton finding himself living alone in a mobile home. Soon after, he’d written more than enough material for a double album (hence, initial title was A Double From A Single Wide). Morton converted his home to facilitate writing and recording music at anytime day or night, with wires and cables, guitars, amps and lyric sheets everywhere. Determined to hold on to the essence of this new work, and with the help and encouragement of engineer J.P Pruett, the entire album was made in the comfort of his home. Morton played all instruments—guitars, bass, harmonica, $20 garage sale keyboard, child’s xylophone—and vocals himself, over a bed of prerecorded drum track loops from the internet, adapting each song to fit a corresponding drum track. No Pro Tools were used on this record so every take had to work all the way through. From the country rocker “Blindsided,” the power pop of “Straight From Your Lips” and the whimsical “Down The Drain” to the anthemic “Reach Forward,” this is Morton’s most diverse and confident recording to date. Heralded as a clever lyricist, Morton even takes a subject such as the Great Hartford Circus Fire of 1944 and turns it into a gem of a song and a history lesson with “Little Miss 1565.” All’s Fair In Love & War will surely resonate with fans of intelligent songwriting.
