Mary Scholz Releases Music Video For “Talk to Me,” Produced by Jonathan Wilson
LA-based Americana-folk singer-songwriter Mary Scholz premieres the music video for her single “Talk to Me” on Americana Highways today. The song is from her latest full-length album, Begin Again, produced by Jonathan Wilson (Father John Misty, Connor Oberst) and executive produced by KZZ Music. The song itself leans into the funk-pop Americana sound that defined the artist’s chart-topping 2021 EP release, Lonesome, and it addresses the fragmented national discourse that has characterized American culture in recent years.

Jukebox The Ghost Announce ‘Cheers Deluxe’ + Share “Brass Band” Music Video
“We wanted to add tracks to the deluxe version that felt like they were already part of the album,” says Jukebox The Ghost about the new additions to their self-produced sixth studio album which is full of catchy and clever pop songs with theatrical undertones. Cheers is an arena-sized, ebullient toast to surviving and thriving in the face of hard times, conjuring up 70’s Queen and McCartney-styled song suites, without sacrificing any modern punch. The album sees the band combine their memorable choruses, cheerful melodies, and Freddie Mercury-esque vocals with the hip-hop-influenced energy of Twenty One Pilots, the modern piano balladry of Andrew McMahon, and the joyful energy of Walk The Moon. By almost any measure, it’s their most ambitious and cohesive creative effort to date.

The chorus is a goosebump-inducing protest chant, building to gang vocals which make you feel like taking to the streets.
