Neena Rose – Perfect Stranger (Spotify)

“-Perfect Stranger- вызывает стойкое чувство ностальгии, душевный, эмоциональный подъём, желание жить и дышать воздухом, которой мы впитываем. К творчеству -Neena Rose- хочется время от времени возвращаться и снова ощущать её всем своим телом. -Perfect Stranger- воодушевляет и погружает в свой уникальный мир, который помогает отстраниться от окружающей действительности.”

Neena Rose's, "Perfect Stranger", dances on the line between the persona we create for people in our minds, and how they actually are. Describing the feeling of meeting a seemingly perfect guy and the fear of learning something that may skew the perception of him. Following the saying, "ignorance is bliss", Neena Rose leaves the stranger behind before any red flags could ruin her memory of him.

Canadian singer/songwriter and Pop/R&B artist, Neena Rose, has emerged onto the music scene with a magnetism not encountered everyday. Between her breakout single, 2018's "Games", and all it successors, the talented Neena Rose is shaking things up and taking the industry by storm.

The Hamilton, Ontario-based artist has received extensive early support and has garnered large following across social media platforms, especially on TikTok. In March of 2019, she was the youngest panelist invited to speak at the California Copyright Conference, and later that year, she was 1 of only 6 Canadians nominated for the Hollywood Music and Media Awards in Los Angeles, CA.

Between her breakout single — 2018’s “Games” — its successors, “Circles” and “Rewind”, and this year’s forthcoming EP 333, Canadian singer/songwriter and pop-R&B artist Neena Rose has emerged onto the music scene with a magnetism not encountered every day.

The 17-year old Hamilton, Ontario-based artist has received extensive early support from media and playlisters, and was a recent panelist at the California Copyright Conference, making her the youngest female Canadian to speak thus far.

Her debut single — “Rock N Roll Lullaby” — was recorded at age 12 with Diamond/Platinum producer/songwriter Roy “Royalty” Hamilton III (Britney Spears, Nas), and the five years since has included performing for audience sizes up to 14,000 (including Oprah Winfrey), and singing CHCH legacy program Tiny Talent Time’s new theme song.

She’s an “amazing young talent,” says Universal Music Publishing Group’s 80 Empire. “She’s an incredible vocalist and witty lyricist… Working with her is a sheer joy!”

“Hellafun to talk with,” Cashbox Magazine’s Lenny Stoute adds. She’s a “combination of music biz savvy and emotional intelligence, with a commanding voice. Gonna go far.”

“I love it all, but writing lyrics is my favourite part,” Neena muses, reflecting on previous dips into nu-country, emo rock, and lofty pop bops before finding her most authentic self in R&B. “I want people to gain empowerment from my music. I want it to communicate to them: ‘You’ve got this. You can be different. You can do anything.’”

It’s true, and Neena Rose is leading by perfect example.

 2020 was a special year for all of us! It was even more special to me because it was the year I decided that I wanted to create music and not only dance on it. So during the pandemic I created this song, which is the second song I released. This track is about the lockdown, when it was illegal to see my girlfriend. We took the moment and made the best out of it, because that is the motto I live by: always make the best of everything and turn every negative thing into a positive one!

andreas owens – bad4you (Spotify)

“Are you looking for some light sound after a busy, tiring day? Then, we strongly recommend Andreas Owens new single. Alternative style with pleasant touch and expressive singing. The suitable elixir for your ears and mind relaxation is just ready.”

-Nagamag.com

Los Angeles-based producer and singer-songwriter andreas owens releases his 5-track debut EP, aptly titled almost everything i've ever wanted to say, an intimate and vulnerable R&B-infused pop record showcasing his ingenious and versatile songwriting. The EP follows a series of singles – “don’t feel happy”, “falling & falling”, and “not much (better than before)” – all of which received high praise by the likes of publications Banger Of The Day, Before The Data, DUMMY Mag, Fashionably Early, Substream Magazine, and We Found New Music; inevitably landing editorial placements on Spotify (Fresh Finds, Fresh Finds: Pop, and Study Break) and TIDAL (Rising: Pop).

QUOTE

“‘almost everything i’ve ever wanted to say’ is truthfully that — it is in every way, nearly everything I’ve ever wanted to say musically, lyrically, sonically, experimentally, and emotionally. For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to create and complete a work like this; something where I’ve sat in my room and slowly worked from beginning to end without any real goal in mind. Almost like I’m reading a book about my life, piecing together one experience after another but not quite knowing where or how the story ends.”

-andreas owens

'almost everything i've ever wanted to say'

The mentality and overall vision behind andreas owens has been pretty different to that of The Millennial Club. Ironically, the biggest distinction between the two projects lies less in the final product, but more so within the creative process itself.

Adapting an “anything goes” mindset helped facilitate a lack of pressure to fit within a specific genre and andreas owens quickly found himself enjoying the refreshing freedom present in creating without convention. This unadulterated creative energy ultimately led to the birth of almost everything i’ve ever wanted to say: a diverse and genre-blending EP that not only reflects his personal growth as a songwriter and producer, but surely defines his personal footprint as a truly generational artist.

BIOGRAPHY

andreas owens is the solo project of Los Angeles-based producer and multi-instrumentalist Andres Owens, the lead vocalist of indie pop and R&B band The Millennial Club. Delicately blending intimate vocals with unabashedly ‘pop’ backbeats, the So-Cal native has been slowly but steadily building a catalogue of truly unique material. Embracing the ever-evolving notion of bedroom pop, everything is written, recorded, and produced in his (tiny) bedroom-turned-studio.

In his own words, “It’s the only way I’ve found it to feel authentically myself. The safe, familiar space is the catalyst for facilitating something visceral and unapologetically my own. It allows me to release my compulsive ‘perfectionist mindset’ and instead create with the understanding that mistakes are inevitably a unique and beautiful part of the process that makes it my own.”

Track Commentary by andreas owens

“bad4you”

“‘bad4you’ is likely the first song I’ve ever written where I can truly say I understood the significance of every sonic and conceptual decision. I’m not sure why, but with ‘bad4you’ in particular, I felt like something just clicked and suddenly everything made sense to my brain. Writing and arranging the song became less about convention and expectation, and more about what I felt the song needed, throwing caution to the wind, and consciously letting the song finish itself. I think in doing that – in a sense, giving myself to the song and not trying to dictate its final form – I found a place of comfort knowing I wasn’t forcing anything into the track that perhaps didn’t belong. Through the process I think it came into focus that production is, in every sense, a language, and producing ‘bad4you’ really helped widen my vocabulary.”
