Enemy Of Fate Releases Debut Single “Dear Dad” to all major platforms
Based in Sacramento, CA, Enemy Of Fate is led by singer and songwriter, Tiffany Fabiani. With comparisons to the likes of Adele, Stevie Nicks, Lady Gaga, Annie Lennox, and Ann Wilson, Tiffany’s powerful vibrato vocal range will be very distinct in her music. After trying out for NBCs “The Voice” in 2019 and 2021, and not advancing, Fabiani wanted to give up on making music. After strong encouragement from her husband, Mickey, Fabiani decided to go into the studio to write and record her passionate and personal debut track, “Dear Dad.” Working with producers, Nick Miller (guitarist for Original Skylit Drive) and Elliot Polokoff (Cemetery Sun), Fabiani was able to bring out some inner demons related to her relationship with her absent father, while finding some closure. After the release of her debut track today, September 22, 2023, Fabiani will be working on recording more music and will be releasing an EP, Settle the Score by early spring of 2024.

Bluegrass hitmakers, The Kody Norris Show is excited to announce the release of their new music video for “Fiddler’s Rock,” which was premiered by The Bluegrass Situation. This single was penned by Kody Norris and tells the story of Johnson County, Tennessee’s own Martin Stone. Stone, a local legendary fiddler was known to “charm deadly serpents with a fiddle in his hand.” Norris grew up in the hills of East Tennessee hearing the stories of Stone and felt compelled to write a tune about the man he heard so much about. After recording “Fiddler’s Rock” for their new album, Rhinestone Revival, it seemed only natural to release it as a video as well.

Today Ex-Pro Skater Jesse Landen’s Indie Pop Group Jiants share Meditative single “Moon Lit”
Moon Lit is about walking up to the fact that you might just be chasing the nostalgia of imaginary summer love. It’s about catching yourself dreaming of lustful, humid, summer nights that keep you in a perpetual loop of hypothetical excitement for the unknowns just around the bend. But this time something feels different. There’s a slow unraveling reality that these kinds of nights are now filling you with emptiness and maybe don’t serve you as well as they used to.

PRE’s Jay Fizzle Returns With “Dickie Set” Ahead of Upcoming Mixtape
Jay Fizzle returns with “Dickie Set,” his brand new single, to kick off the announcement of his forthcoming mixtape FUCK BEING FAMOUS, out on September 29th via Paper Route Empire. The track finds Fizzle bobbing and weaving over menacing keys, finding every which way to get to the bag: “Bitch, I’m a gangsta don’t play with it, I don’t play about no payment.” The video for “Dickie Set” has Fizzle on his mafioso behavior, unexpectedly pulling up to a warehouse and giving them an option of get down or lay down. Fizzle doesn’t play about what’s owed to him: dripped out in a full beige dickie set, he and his soldiers do rounds in their territory collecting what’s theirs while reminding everybody who runs Memphis.

Chow Lee Brings NYC to Vegas in “drais” Video
Coming off the heels of the “Chow Lee’s Life” video, “drais” is another highlight off of Chow’s album Hours After The Club, which was released earlier this summer. Hours After The Club is an addictive listen, radiating with the seductive charm that inspired Pitchfork to affectionately call Chow Lee the “horniest rapper out.” The multifaceted project shows off Chow’s R&B and rapping chops, just as much as his sample-driven club cut-ups, effectively showcasing the Long Island rapper’s versatility while still showing respect for the sound he helped make a cultural phenomenon with his acclaimed album 2 SLIZZY 2 SEXY project.

WYATT FLORES RELEASES HIGHLY ANTICIPATED “WEST OF TULSA”
““West of Tulsa” is about becoming the person of your dreams while also dealing with the shortcomings that you sometimes experience when those dreams are coming true. We all say we want to be somebody but it’s hard to realize that you actually already are somebody. I want fans to understand that I am them, that my feelings are still the same as anyone elses. From a blue-collar worker to working as a musician on the stage, my problems are still the same and I still fight through the struggle of wanting to be somebody every day.” – Wyatt Flores
