Alla Igityan – Track: Sad Song

Being a software engineer by profession and a singer/songwriter by passion, I am super-blessed to enjoy two distinct yet exciting careers at the same time. Back in school life, when everyone was preparing for university, I decided to opt for vocal lessons along with getting apt at playing violin and guitar. That marked a new phase of my life. From turning on karaoke to pretend myself performing at my concert to actually recording my favorite songs and uploading them on YouTube, I eventually achieved that level where I wrote my first song.

Dash Gwoppo “Gods Grace” New Single!

Pcha$e “Talk My Shit” New Single!


Country transitioned pop artist, Sierraxsongs debuts new style of project with the release of debut single Voids available on all streaming platforms.

“Voids was written about a year ago about a guy I used to love. He manipulated me in the worst ways and tore me away from friends, family, colleagues, and even myself. He convinced me that I didn’t actually love him, but that I was just using him to “fill voids” in my life. This was a statement frequently used throughout our brief fling,” explains Sierraxsongs. “One day I decided to take control over my emotions, and I flipped the script on him in this song. It was kind of written ironically, to say, “Yeah, you’re right. I DON’T actually love you. I would be really messed up if I did because you suck.” So I brought this idea into the session, with the line, “I’m just filling voids.” I knew I wanted that to be the hook. Messy had written a track with Brett (Beats) Bailey that I loved. I heard it and really wanted to write to it, so I just went with it, and it flowed pretty naturally. I wrote about all of the things this guy didn’t like about me, to let him know that, yeah, I’m a little messed up. But I don’t care. This song helped me feel like I was finally in control. He didn’t have any “secrets” over me anymore, because I just put it all out there for the world to hear.”

Sierraxsongs Debuts New Project with Release of Debut Single ‘Voids’

Ryan Langdon: “Buck Wild”

A debut comes with pressure to succeed. Ontario-based country singer-songwriter Ryan Langdon doesn’t sweat it too much, though. On his upcoming debut EP, Lit in the Sticks, he exudes a confident mix of earworm hooks, small-town trouble-making, and feel-good songwriting that positions him as one of country music’s most promising newcomers. Landing somewhere between Chris Young’s bellowing bass and Jason Aldean-sized showmanship, Ryan always stamps his songs with his own swagger and style, too.

Dictator Ship releases their debut album “Your Favorites” on The Sign Records

Swedish Dictator Ship releases their debut album “Your Favorites” on The Sign Records April 17. The live-recorded album contains seven tracks of pure rock’n’roll mixed with 60’s soul-inspired vocal harmonies and is released on Vinyl, CD and Digital format.

Your Favorites is the raw and primitive debut album from Dictator Ship. Seven tracks of pure rock’n’roll in 27 minutes, with stand out vocals that are heavily influenced by the soul bands of the ’60s. Adding rock’n’roll riffs and pure attitude makes Dictator Ship’s debut album impossible to resist. Dictator Ship is a four person strong band with four vocalists – a vocal approach that adds so much flavor to the songs. Your Favorites sounds like a ‘best-of’ album, but is actually Dictator Ship’s debut album. However, it could very well be a ‘best-of’ – the album is just that good!
