Music Submission: Naomi Psalm
This free spirited Florida girl began turning her poetry into songs in her early teens. Yet highly influenced by the 90’s female indie scene, she has a sound of her own. Her powerful vocals reminiscent of Alanis Morissette will move you as you absorb each lyric as if it were written for you. Naomi’s songs have bits of introspection, as well as fun and quirky twists. She has released 4 full length CDs, 2 EPs , 5 singles, and several music videos. Her latest full length record was released in September 2022. Her award winning music has taken her to 32 countries as well as countless tours in the Northwest. She currently resides in Boise, Idaho.

Rachel Bochner Presents “If I’m Gunna Be Sad” Music Video
In the self-directed music video, Rachel and her co-writer/producer Tiger Darrow throw themselves an over-the-top party complete with a bounce house, cotton candy, feather boas, and an inflatable bull. Rachel elaborates on her vision for the music video: “The song feels badass but without taking itself too seriously, so I really wanted to play with bouncing (pun intended) between empowerment/bad bitchery and the silly/ridiculousness of two grown ass women falling over themselves in a pink bouncy house intended for children.”
‘Goodbye Song’ eschews genre categorization as its subtle melancholic grooves build and weave their way under the skin. Dealing with accepting and understanding a break-up, the lyrics conjure up memories of places and times spent together with a partner, as the sounds & production wrap the listener in a twilight atmosphere.
But far from being a gloomy and downbeat affair, the song has an infectious shuffling rhythm that grows and grows on each listen!

A follow-up to her critically acclaimed 2020 LP Daughter, Nothing’s Gonna Stand in My Way Again continues the evolution of Loveless (she/her/they/them): a fiercely brave writer who bluntly assesses their life in song. Their trademark candidness and razor-sharp wit remain as they lay bare their raw pain—struggles with alcohol and depression, a breakup with their longtime boyfriend, and uncertainty about the future—but here Loveless’ voice is wiser and more controlled.
