Mikayla – Insecure (Spotify)

“There are times that we feel insecure and looking for an opportunity to run away from other people. Mikayla with her brand new track Insecure undertakes the task to express this highly negative emotions with unbelieveable sensitivity embelissed with her elegant voice”

-Nagamag.com

“Insecure” is about when you don’t believe you're worth any love, trust or good in life. That you are scared that people are gonna know how you see yourself and scare them away. As soon as you get the opportunity to run you do it. You’re too sensitive to exist and all you wanna do is to feel love but all you do is push it away.

René Le Feuvre – Second Hand Soul (Spotify)

“Second Hand Soul, is a beautiful song of soft acoustic guitars, chill beats and warm mellow vocals by René Le Feuvre through a well mix production, where listeners can focus on the depth of these positive vibes.”

-Nagamag.com

René Le Feuvre said about this song
"Second Hand Soul is the result of an unprecedented year of change and uncertainty for both myself and the world at large. After moving from the city back to my rural hometown due to COVID-19 I had the opportunity to reflect on my place in the world as everything seemed to be crumbling around me, losing career defining opportunities in the US, but much more importantly the life of a close friend around this time of pain and isolation"

René Le Feuvre is a singer-songwriter who has built a loyal fan base across the country with his smooth vocals, impressive guitar skills and looped beats. Crafting his sound by busking on the streets of North Queensland and taking out local singing competition titles, René migrated to the Gold Coast aged 17 to pursue a career in Australian Rules Football. After playing in the reserve grade for The Suns, he decided that his true passion was music, and set about playing at every music venue, bar and market, where he could hone his acoustic sound.

With a style that is often compared to British songwriters Ed Sheeran and Mark Rosenburg (Passenger), René decided to audition for The Voice Australia 2018. Wowing the judges with his heartfelt acoustic rendition of Lauv’s hit, ‘I Like Me Better’, René earned himself a coveted spot on Boy George’s team, eventually making it through to the knockout rounds.

In early 2019, René set his sights on Nashville, where he spent four weeks co-writing, recording and performing. This included a collaboration with global hitmaker, Katie Cole (Smashing Pumpkins); mentoring by acclaimed producers Jason Wyatt (Jewel, Atz Kilcher) and Dr Ford (Jade Gibson, Michael D. Keeney); and performances at iconic Nashville venues, such as Bluebird Cafe. Before returning home, René also took out a top-3 spot in Nashville’s Rising Song competition with his song “Whispers and Whistles”, voted by popular demand.

In 2020 René was approached to perform at two original showcases during SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. This was quickly cut short by the global pandemic, and instead René Has been focussing on recording his first EP which will be released in September this year. René performed his EP at his first ticketed show at Miami Marketta on the 26th of September.

Sir Ivan – Get Together (Video)

“What a positive track to end your week and prepare with the best mood for weekend. Sir Ivan invites us to Get Together, as one we do more than move alone and through these good vibes and beautiful harmonics, Sir Ivan with his signature voice lifts up our energy.”

-Nagamag.com

Earning a prestigious award held also by the likes of film titans Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg is certainly not what International recording artist Sir Ivan set out to do, but due to his incredibly unique concept, that is precisely what happened. Sir Ivan’s remake of the 1967 hit song “Get Together” by The Youngbloods, as a dance song, has had incredible success and now the official music video will premiere on Wednesday, September 9th at 11am EDT.

The video, prior to public release, has already won a Gold Remi in the category of “Video of the Year”. This award gave Sir Ivan the top honor out of nearly 5,000 other entries, from 53 countries, including strong international competition; especially from the USA and England.

Responding to this huge achievement, Sir Ivan says “In my almost 20 year music career, the two greatest ideas I’ve had yet, have been: 1) Remaking John Lennon’s iconic peace song ‘Imagine’ into an electronic dance record and 2) Coming up with this video concept where I assembled the world’s most famous peace leaders in history, to act as my ‘backup band’, with me as the lead singer. Neither of these ideas had ever been done before”.

In the video, character actors portray five of the most recognizable advocates of peace in the history of the world. In the second half of the video, the “backup band” moves inside Sir Ivan’s penthouse where they sit around the table, as great friends, sharing a “peace pipe”. Meanwhile, people from all walks of life are just steps away from “Sir Ivan & The Peacemen”, dancing and having a wonderful time, celebrating peace, love, and life… Together.

The music video is presented in satirical form as political speech, for the purpose of spreading the message of peace, during the current civil unrest…

Sir Ivan is donating all net proceeds from “Get Together” to The Peaceman Foundation, a charity he created to raise awareness and help those that suffer from PTSD.

More about Sir Ivan Sir Ivan aka Peaceman has dedicated his recording artist career to remaking the iconic peace songs from the 1960’s, and was the first to take a Beatles or John Lennon ballad and turn it into an Electronic Dance Music (EDM) song. “Imagine” launched Sir Ivan’s career and all his songs since have gone on to top the charts on Billboard, DJ Times, and Music Week. The passion that Sir Ivan has for spreading peace, love and equality to all humankind comes from losing 59 relatives in the Holocaust and hearing those stories from his father, Siggi, who was an Auschwitz survivor.

On April 6, 2021 the world will finally get to hear the full story of Siggi B. Wilzig. Available now for pre-order on Amazon, by author Joshua M. Greene, is “Unstoppable” – The Incredible Journey of Siggi B. Wilzig, the Auschwitz Survivor Who Over-came All Odds and Became a Wall Street Legend.

Magic Bronson – “ITILYN” (Video)

“We think you love this now as we did! Magic Bronson’s new song ITILYN is all about good vibes and leave in the present moment, discover the beauty that is all around you, yet sometimes due of bad mood you act blindfolded.”

-Nagamag.com

Los Angeles born-and-based duo Magic Bronson return to the forefront of the indie-pop rock scene with their upcoming single “ITILYN” (I Think I Love You Now), due out next week! The woozy new track follows the recently released “Surfin” and “Tell All Your Friends” which have garnered praise far and wide and will all be on the forthcoming SWEAT album, due out this fall!

This new synth-tastic track features cruising vocals and syncopated percussion to create this head-nodding song. “ITILYN” (I Think I Love You Now) is a fresh take on a love affair with Los Angeles. With references to “skating down the boardwalk” and a love for all her quirks like sitting in traffic, life slowing down has taught us to appreciate all the things we often overlooked.

“‘ITILYN’ was inspired by our love/hate relationship with Los Angeles,” the duo share. “We were both born in LA and still live here so we definitely have a unique perspective. I think sometimes when you grow up in a city you can take it for granted a bit and not realize how much great stuff there is to do and see as opposed to someone who moves to LA and is really excited to go out and see the sights. We’ve both lived on the East and West side and they both have their own cool quirks and qualities which we wanted to touch on in the lyrics. I think a lot of people in LA get stuck in the traffic or bogged down by the high rent and have these fantasies of moving somewhere else that’s cheaper or easier but then you get an LA sunset or a perfect day cruising the boardwalk and you realize ah man this city’s actually pretty great. Just when you feel like you’ve had enough something happens to remind you why you actually do love living there and why you put up with all the hardships.”

“ITILYN,” “Surfin,” and “Tell All Your Friends” will all be included in Magic Bronson’s upcoming album SWEAT. Magic Bronson continue to spearhead music trends, tackling social issues and the anxiety of what’s going on in the world and coupling it with sensational and experimental melodies. The new album is fun, enlightening and uplifting all while tackling topics like the power of friendship and the uncertainty of trying times.

Mibsy – Mon Chéri (Spotify)

Mon Chéri is a reminder to put forth the effort in a relationship. Dancing to this song with your significant other is a good start! Was born in Switzerland, and growing up her adventurous heart which filled with joy getting to travel to Africa during the summers. Wrapped up in the various cultures and mindsets that helped define who is today. A summer bright song to give good light in your day. www.instagram.com/miibsyy/

Shadi G – Disconnection (Spotify)

The single “Disconnection” looks at a relationship where both people know and are certain that they love each other, but on the surface they really cannot remember the reasons why. The song examines a love where the romantic sparks that initially fires up a relationship, have all but died.

It lays bare those crucial moments when each partner questions whether they are really suited to each other. It characterizes that singular, painful moment when you believe that “Disconnection” from the other, is the only answer.

Few words about Shadi G:
Shadi G is a Swedish songwriter, producer and singer whose soulful voice and heartfelt lyrics is striking the attention of some of Swedens biggest music magazines.

Schooled in classical music, growing up with music all from jazz, RnB, soul, hip hop to her roots in Persian music, Shadi is crossing borders with her own soulful sound, both in style and language.

Straight after high school she went to London to study music production and in 2016 she released her debut single “Lost”, which got her on to some of Swedens biggest music playlists.

In 2017 she started her own record label, Goldamin Records, from which the second single “Where We Go”, was released.

And now, after more than one year waiting, it is finally time for more music from Shadi. “This Love” is the first song to be released from her upcoming EP, which will be the first to be released through her own label.

Suraj Mani Interview on Nagamag.com

Songwriter Features


Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Suraj Mani:
I've always done lyric heavy stuff. Even from my Motherjane days. My solo career showcases the lyricism even more and I think that's where I'm headed. Lyrical, melodic & peppered with surprises.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Suraj Mani:
Well, I started my musical career as the frontman, lyricist, and vocalist of Motherjane. Did some pretty kick-ass stuff with the band. Won national and Asian level accolades. Now, currently; in my second run, my focus is on the words and then the music.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Suraj Mani:
Yup. I discovered the Beatles. And I fell in love with what music did to me. Quickly developed into a passionate listener. Considering that I hadn't learnt music or even read poetry, etc; I accidentally walked into this profession.


Nagamag:
Can you provide an Insight into your latest EP, "Rinse and Repeat"?

Suraj Mani:
I've always told people my stories and the context behind my songs because I believe that's what people connect with. And at the risk of being hurt, I'll do it again. So, be kind to me as I open up and say that Rinse & Repeat is my way of acknowledging that I failed at my marriage and that I am currently going through a divorce. This is me, looking back at love, its painful destruction, and wondering if I have the courage to start afresh in the courtship game. Because though I'd like to, that's an emotional rollercoaster that runs through despair, defiance, love, lust, storms, and deathly silence. Rinse & Repeat, Sacred Ground, La Petite Mort & Samsara, provide a snapshot of love and relationships in a manner that is all too relevant, today. Am I misstepping in sharing my personal struggles? Maybe. Does doing so, hurt others involved? I hope not. Sometimes it's hard to know for sure what is right and what is wrong. All I can ask myself in such a situation is, does my decision make me feel stronger or weaker?... Yes, it makes me feel stronger to share this because I know that there are many others like me. And while it's still hard for most us to overcome the sorrow of failing at love, none of us need the shame. So, if you're anything like me, it doesn't matter who you are or where you are in your journey, I guess what I'm trying to say is this: take the decisions that make you feel strong. You're NOT alone.


Nagamag:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?

Suraj Mani:
Kishore Kumar "Pyar Deewana Hota hain"


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?

Suraj Mani:
Vernon Noronah "Come back Jack"
