NEW YORK CITY BAROQUE POP ARTIST REID JENKINS SHARES SYNTH POP ODYSSEY “NORTH STAR”
Jenkins explains: “Even without knowing where your North Star is, you can still let your imagination fling you into the outer reaches of deep space. Or maybe, as the song suggests, your search might get you halfway to Andromeda, and your North Star is the liberating act of motion itself. Aesthetically, I wanted to lean into a retro-futuristic kitsch for this track. Think The Magic School Bus, glow-in-the-dark star decals, school field trips to the Planetarium, Ziggy Stardust, Carl Sagan voice-overs. The result is something equal parts goofy and perfectly sincere,” shares Reid.
CHIEF ADJUAH RELEASES “TROUBLE THAT MORNING”

The song seeks to armor and fuel future generations to when necessary reference those and other histories of resistance and to call on their power in times of turmoil and reckoning.”

Singer-songwriter Dave Thomas Junior Releases Dreamy Album ‘Promises’
Dave Thomas Junior makes music that makes you feel something. Whether it’s to be grateful for what you have, or to lean into what you have lost, he wants fans to feel and reach for the beauty within. “Ever since I had those songs featured on ‘After Life,’ I have had a new perspective on the music I make,” he reflects. “I got so many messages from people who had found some sort of breakthrough or release or insight from the music, and that felt like a real purpose, beyond just looking inside myself. I think I was always doing this as a form of self therapy, but this really gave me the perspective that if I’m feeling something, I can be less afraid of it. Sometimes I might even want to get closer to an unpleasant thought or feeling so I can try to crystalize it. These songs are a result of that path I’ve been on. Trying to step outside and notice and look, which has been so helpful for me and I hope it will be for those who listen.”
