Kimberly Kelly Releases Debut Album “I’ll Tell You What’s Gonna Happen”
A native of Lorena, Texas, singer/songwriter Kimberly Kelly has spent years in both the Texas and Nashville music scenes earning an education through experiences that have made her both fearless in her approach to creating and unafraid to defy convention when it comes to industry expectations.

“Did it take me more than two years to finish this song with Illenium and EVAN GIIA? You’re damn right it did,” says Francis. “Do I think you need to check it out so I can feel a sense of accomplishment in my life, that the two years of late nights and early mornings weren’t for nothing and that I’m worth a damn and that my mom and dad should be proud of me and that my brother needs to get off my back about buying him a new mountain bike because I supposedly broke it but it was already broken even though I don’t have proof?

Australian Artist & Activist JACK RIVER Shares Summery New Single
“Real Life” transports you to a strange paradise, an intoxicating hallucination of an ideal summer. It’s a kaleidoscopic blend of echo-chamber pop vocals, frenzied trumpets, and psychedelic distortion that retreats from reality – where the grass isn’t always greener. Drawing inspiration from a bygone decade of carefree illusion, it nods to 90’s acts Primal Scream and LEN, and has the energy of Hot Chocolate’s ‘You Sexy Thing’. Written and co-produced with long-time collaborator Xavier Dunn, with further co-production from Lewis Stephenson, the only goal was to make the listener feel good and depart the unsettling present. The video, directed by award-winning filmmaker W.A.M. Bleakley (DMA’s, Brian Jonestown Massacre), is an explosion of caustic summer symbolism.
