Jon Campbell – Cruising at the End of the World (Video)

“A song that captures the uncertainty of a rapidly changing world. A record of what once was before the inevitable shift towards life in lockdown and fear of the unknown In essence, a cleanly picked acoustic guitar and melancholic male vocal, supported by a trumpet and trombone that represents male and female human interaction. A thought provoking, well performed ballad.”

Artist shared few words behind his inspiration on this song:

” The arrangement for the song is based on an arguing couple I passed on the street while riding my bike in the first month of the pandemiic; the trumpet is the woman’s voice and the trombone is the man’s. In the context of the unfolding catastrophe, even their fighting sounded beautiful because it was human and since it felt like everything was slipping away from us, I wanted to record every bit of humanity that I could before it disappeared, taking snapshots in my mind of these beautiful people on the streets.

At the same time as these daily bike rides, I started painting portraits to get by, since my furloughed pay wasn’t enough to pay the bills. This daily process of portrait painting also echoed that feeling of wanting to record some last impressions of humankind before it faded away. ” – Jon Campbell

“Honest with God” addresses what Kerrigan Barry believes to be the cardinal principle of genuine songwriting; writing music should be so honest, that regardless of what you believe in spiritually or otherwise, it should feel like you’re writing a letter to God. For Kerrigan, songwriting and music are sanctified, defining a religion all their own. To some, the song’s meaning might be open for interpretation, but at its core, “Honest with God” is for anyone looking to leave their pain, heartache and unimaginable struggle behind for 3 minutes and 44 seconds; it’s about embracing exactly who you are, courageously and without fear.

Raw, real, and unapologetically reckless, ​​Kerrigan Barry​​ was born with a fire in her heart, stoked by rock ‘n’ roll in her bones. The Cleveland, Ohio native found catharsis and truth in writing lyrics and melodies after watching Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band ​​Live In New York City​​ on DVD as a 5-year old kid. Quite possibly the only 4th grader in her generation to have The Rolling Stones’ ​​Tattoo You ​​on their iPod shuffle, Kerrigan​​ began her lifelong love affair with music, and it has since proved to be the most beautifully intoxicating relationship she ever imagines experiencing. Kerrigan Barry’s “Honest with God” was selected as a finalist in 35th Annual American Songwriter Song Competition, praised for her raw approach to putting pen to paper. “Honest with God” is available now [orcd.co/honestwithgod] on all platforms.

MEARA – Blackbird (Spotify)

“When listening to the new single -Blackbird- it reveals its invisible wings, fly away somewhere up high and swings between air flows. Melodic, and also representative of the creativity of -MEARA-.”

“Слушая новый сингл -Blackbird- раскрываешь свои невидимые крылья, улетаешь куда-то вверх, ввысь и вибрируешь там между потоками воздуха. Мелодичное, но от этого не растерявшее свою энергетику творение -MEARA-.”

-Nagamag.com

Life is a dance of shadows and light. MEARA, with stories of passion and power, healing and womanhood, creates the soundtrack. Blessed with synaesthesia, the British/ American songstress was born, literally into a world where music is colour. Her work dances delicately between cinematic, ethereal and indie music. Life’s unfolding stories are told here with a voice that will put a shine on your soul and guide you through the darkness. The tones are pure, the sensation one of stealing a glimpse into heaven.

MEARA has created a sophisticated tale of independence, told as a mother, a storyteller and a friend to our vulnerabilities. Flying from the ashes, the smoke still warm on her wings, MEARA has a voice like no other. She sings with the purpose of an addict and the touch of a maestro. Cinematic and vast like the call of a bird, suddenly free from its cage, her music will lift you away while her writing, her vision and her stories will keep you afloat in a space of light and empathy where your own voice can now be heard.

"Blackbird", the first in a string of singles culminating in an album, speaks of awakening, reconnection and embracing the dark like a long-lost friend. The artist confides “I’ve always sung other people’s music yet dreamed of writing my own. I wanted to step out of that box. I want to inspire people to discover their own story and pursue their dreams. Our journeys are never a straight line.” The stunning music video was filmed at the historic Holloway Sanitorium (a former sanitorium which was also used as a location for Inspector Morse). It’s a symbolic location for the song as it represents the artist’s subconscious mind, in which she wakes up and finds “Blackbird” there.

While the seeds of Florence and the Machine, Aurora and Lana Del Rey, and many other musical icons are evident in their influence, the flowers that have bloomed are all MEARA. MEARA’s vocal range will send shivers down your spine, while bold, thumping drum and soaring string arrangements awaken a feeling deep inside yourself. Both soft and threatening, warm and cold, earthy and digital MEARA brings her influences of baroque pop and folk into the present and gives an edgy, futuristic twist, taking the listener on a journey.

MEARA's creativity will shock you in its finesse and take your hand with a powerful grip wrapped in a silk glove. This is a music of love, redemption and dreams of light and life.

Written with the collaboration of world-beating talents Norma Jean Martine (known for viral hits “Head Shoulders Knees and Toes” and “When We Were Young" and Max Mostley (Jones, Norma Jean Martine, Tomine Harket).

MEARA has previously performed on Broadway as well as on NBC’s Today Show and at Madison Square Garden. She sings in 7 languages. Unveiling the first chapter to this compelling story, “Blackbird” is set currently available worldwide.

Ullie Swan – Alzheimer (Video)

“Song -Alzheimer- from French singer -Ullie Swan- corresponds to the level that you expect to hear from the performer in its class. Melancholic and very sincere work.”

“Песня -Alzheimer- в исполнение французской певицы -Ullie Swan- соответствует тому уровню, который ожидаешь услышать от исполнителя такого класса. Меланхоличная и очень искренняя работа.”

-Nagamag.com

This song is about Alzheimer’s disease. Specifically she talks about someone whose mother is affected by Alzheimer’s disease and who no longer remembers her child. She talks about all those memories that are forgotten forever, and the anguish and the situation that this causes. This song was entirely produced by Ullie Swan.

www.instagram.com/ullieswan

Ullie Swan is a french singer, songwriter, multi musician, self-taught producer and sound addict. She just released her new album “6%” on every digital platform. Her album is made solo from the first note to the mix and was recorded in her studio in the South of France “Swaman Productions”.

6% is about human emotions, it’s like a musical healing process. A mix of dark pop, electronica, ambient the album is influenced by the likes of: Archive, Portishead, Radiohead, IAMX, Muse and Lana del Rey… Her songs deal with apologies, depression, Alzheimer disease, personal reconstruction, self-confidence, doubts, growing up in a strange world far from children’s dreams, invisible scars, and pain, love, positive mindset and the law of attraction.

It all started with classical training when she was six years old. She learned the flute at the music conservatory for 10 years but wanted to stop to learn guitar and piano on her own. Music production has been part of her daily life since she was 20 years old and she never stopped since. She learned watching tutorials online, practicing a lot, sharing with professionals, asking some questions..

Over the years, she built her recording studio because she didn’t want to use what she had learned just for her personal projects. “Music becomes immortal if it’s recorded. Music should not be reserved for an elite. Recording your voice is an experience to live, it’s like jumping in a parachute. It’s all about emotions and pleasure.”

She also recently recorded from her phone the Kamala’s Harry’s historical speech to create a song called “Kamala’s speech”, available everywhere..

A report released in 2018 looked at the Grammy nominees and those who made it on the year end Billboard Hot 100 chart between 2012 and 2017. The research revealed that only 2 percent of producers are women. Ullie founded in January 2020 a group to try to bring together all the “female music producers of the world”. They can help each other, share on every subject, organize some meets up in different cities, do collabs.. “Female producers are so under represented year by year, it’s important to gain visibility for the next generations. We are all connected. When a woman succeeds, all women win. You’re not alone. We’ re in this together, and stronger than never, it’s time to change these statistics.”

Gregg Garvey – Minot (Spotify)

“Singer and author Gregg Garvey is one of the last romantics of our day. You just want to put all your gadgets aside, open the door and feel the rustle of grass under your feet. The song Minot sounds in my head, and my fingers beat beat after beat. Life will never be the same again.”

“Певец и автор Gregg Garvey один из последних романтиков наших дней. Так и хочется отложить все гаджеты в сторону, распахнуть дверь и почувствовать шелест травы под ногами. В голове звучит песня Minot, а пальцы отбивают такт за тактом. Жизнь уже никогда не будет прежней.”

-Nagamag.com

Titled after a town in North Dakota, the song is an inward reflection on first loves, first pursuits of dreams, and finding one’s own bravery. At the heart of the song is the idea that even if a person fails at first, they have now become someone who made that voyage, and so may make more of them.

Gregg Garvey is a singer and songwriter from Minnesota. Influenced by visionary artists such as Gene Clark, David Sylvian and ‘60s-era Scott Walker, Gregg’s music is a mix of dreamy Baroque pop and vintage rock soul.
