Brook Pridemore Shares New Single + Video via Spill Mag + Backseat Mafia, Ground Control, Psychedelic Baby Features | ‘Glad To Be Alive’ LP Out 9/16
Fresh home from a US tour to a Brooklyn that was silenced by the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, unemployed and unable to play live, Brook Pridemore was overcome with a flurry of middle-of-the-night songwriting. More intimate and unflinchingly honest than anything they’d written before, this batch of nascent songs painted snapshots of the most trying moments of the songwriter’s life: an altercation with a teacher (“The Man Who Tried to Kill Me”), the suicide of a childhood friend (“Learned to Play the Drums”), etc. Pridemore imagined this songbook to be a humble demo, a la Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska.

SAN ROMAN Shares Brand New Single & Music Video “Messy”
About the song, Alexa says, “The title track of my upcoming album, ‘Messy’ is about running in place. That feeling when you try to punch something underwater & the moment of slight amusement when things are so bad you can’t help but to laugh. It’s finding the motivation to nonetheless still get up outta bed and wade through the metaphorical mess. ‘When my world fell down around me, I caught fire but I’ll be fine.’”

“Streamers [are] falling hard for Bailey Zimmerman” (Country Insider), who has earned a constantly rising total of more than 400 million global streams to date and currently ranks Top 10 on Billboard’s Country Songwriters chart and Top 40 on their all-genre Artist 100 Chart. Before his whirlwind rise since releasing his very first song in 2021, the twenty-two-year-old was born and raised in the small town of Louisville, IL. He grew up listening to hour after hour of country radio on long hauls across state lines with his father, who owned a trucking business, while back at home his mom instilled in him a life-long appreciation for the power chords and edgy vocals of 80’s hair rock. But it was time spent at the family’s car dealership where he learned the art of telling stories, listening to Grandpa Zimmerman and his oldest friends would sit and tell stories capture people’s attention with their words.
I’m an 18-year-old artist from Berrien Springs, Michigan. When growing up, you could find 6-year-old me sitting next to the radio flipping through channels and listening to everything that I possibly could. When people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would say “A Superstar”. It wasn’t until late into my junior year of high school that I started making music. It all started when my friends and I were bored and tried to make a song for fun. I realized I really enjoyed doing this and continued with the best dude in all of Berrien Springs. My friend Felipe Navia! I would record a track and then send it to Felipe to edit the vocals. 6 months into making music people were feelin’ the music and we got addicted to just creating. I started posting on TikTok regularly and gained the attention of many different people. In my senior year of high school, I accepted that music was what drove me and what I wanted to do with my life. Just recently I signed a record deal with an great indie label and I’m excited to see what comes next.

Says Ethan of the creative process behind the video, “Since the moment I wrote engravings, I knew what the music video looked like in my head. It was amazing working with such a collaborative team that helped to realize my vision for it. I wanted to capture a very accurate representation of what my actual toxic relationship was like as well as the unhinged piano playing people have been seeing on social media. The video sees me trying to escape the unhealthy attachment, and using the string to showcase that we’re all tied to our trauma.”
