The Brotherhood Release Debut Single “Till the Wheels Fall Off”
The Brotherhood make their way onto the scene with “Till The Wheels Fall Off”, an ode to life as a musician. Though this track has many guest features, we owe this country/rock blend to three musical masterminds- Michael Alexander, Scott Wilson (Saving Abel) and Rick Monroe. The three, while coming from different backgrounds within the vast world of music, join forces with years of experience under their belt. Listeners are in for a treat when they realize The Brotherhood goes beyond their integral three with this debut track and bring in a number of fellow musicians and friends to feature on the track, such as Kent Slucher (Luke Bryan), Neal Middleton (Royal Bliss), Marshal Dutton (Hinder) and more. The Brotherhood stay true to their name by integrating their own friendships into this truly collaborative musical effort.
GRAMMY WINNING PRODUCER WALSHY FIRE AND HAITIAN SENSATION J. PERRY DROP NEW SINGLE VALIDÉ
GOOSEBERRY ANNOUNCE DEBUT EP
Gooseberry, a coming together of many different sounds that meld indie rock, jazz, and soul, create a sonic landscape that is uniquely theirs. The single “Sleep,” being the first offering from the EP, perfectly demonstrates what the group is capable of. The song, designed to feel like falling into anxiety, plays heavily with textures, sounds, and genres — the track starts off calm, but quickly builds up into a bombastic, riff-heavy track that the band aptly describes as “film noir with fangs.”
Single Released Today from Matt Saxton
Taking inspiration from Neil Young and The Jayhawks, “It’s Only Now That I Know” is the title track from Matt’s upcoming album, about wisdom and the journey we take to realize it.

Throughout her life, Irene Diaz has always been about The Search. For identity. For expression. For music and her place in it, and for a creative community and direction that best serves her mission. All of that can be found in Diaz’s songs and on Lovers & Friends, the California singer-songwriter’s debut full-length album which was recorded in both Mexico City and Los Angeles and will be released February 2022. With its captivating melodies and richly nuanced ambiance, it introduces Diaz as an artist who’s taken many paths to get to this point and is excited to find even more creative roads to travel as she moves forward. In 2013, Diaz released the I Love You Madly EP—which received much praise from NPR’s Felix Contreras raving “her sheer power belies her compact stature, and her musical impact is simply immense.” Lovers & Friends is, in effect, a new beginning for Diaz and a fresh destination for what’s been a long musical path finally ready to take center stage.

Lead vocalist Ven says, “These are simply some of the best songs Venrez has written and recorded, from the first single ‘Each And Every Day’ taking no prisoners to the pretty ballad ‘Gin Fizz.’”
The Orlando-based producer is fresh off his label debut for Bassrush, after teaming up with Cyclops on the ballistic collab “Shots” which was fired off with the rest of the recent ‘Prophecy’ compilation Less than a month later, he’s already following through with a combo as he hits us with his latest creation. “Funeral” is a mental coffin he created for all doubts, and it’s a ceremonial dancefloor crusher that shows the fast-rising artist embracing a newfound sense of security in the recognition he rightfully deserves.

Rich Webb shares new single and video ‘Love Someone’
