Thomas Rottenbücher – Pales Comes The Morning (Spotify)

“Excellent ballads, performed by country singer-songwriter Thomas Rottenbücher, which remain with you for a long time. Easy and memorable guitar chords and common unsuccessful rhythms - all of which you hear in the All In This Song album. Pales Comes The Morning our favorite. ”

“Отличные баллады, исполняемые кантри-музыкантом Thomas Rottenbücher, которые на долго останутся с вами. Лёгкие и запоминающиеся гитарные аккорды и общий неспешный ритм - всё это вы услышите в альбоме All In This Song. ”

Until he was 69, Thomas Rottenbücher took his time to publish his first album "All in this song". It took a lot of experience and scars to be ready for it. The life story of the Munich-born songwriter reads like an exciting book that explores many abysses and contains addiction and longing.

Just like himself, Thomas Rottenbücher's album “All in this song” needed the time to mature, which is now revealed in a relaxed way in the soulful songs.

Corona King by Dawn Drake Directed by Olivier Kay (Video)

“Dawn Drake please us with a way atmospheric new song called -The Corona King-. Good mood vibes that if you listen in the morning when you start your day will boost you with good energy to fulfill your goals. With a soulful vocal performance and the beautiful sync of instrumentalist performers will light your atmosphere, and even if you don’t want to do nothing today is OK, laid back and enjoy a beautiful day! ”

“Corona King” by Dawn Drake (Feb 12, 2021 on PMX Records) chronicles a pandemic romance that is already barely hanging by a thread on Zoom. The relationship finally succumbs to a lack of actual human connection that many of us have experienced in 2020.

Imagine if your computer screen is actually a bad dream come true? Many singles in lockdown all over the world went for months without actually being in the presence of other human beings. Social media and video chats have been the only human connection we have had during the pandemic- and Zoom, Facetime and Skype have become some of the only potential romantic connections we’ve had as well. This bad dream for Ms. Drake tells a somewhat autobiographical tale of being in quarantine already cutoff from all social ties; the final straw is when that special someone catches coronavirus and is never heard from again. S/He becomes the “Corona King” for whom the song is named.

In Dawn’s signature fashion of accompanying her darker lyrics with grooves that light up the dance floor, the video for “Corona King” sheds a sunny light on the subject matter as the protagonist prevails. Dancing and singing into the post-lockdown summer and fall, she makes lemonade out of the tale, converting it into a passion-filled dance number that is at once New Wave Pop and Cuban Timba (Salsa Cubana) with some dashes of Afro-Cuban folkloric references that conjure up images of Changó, the Orisha of male virility, and Ochún, the Orisha of love and sweet waters. “Corona King” shows us that all is not lost in the world and that even when the floor is shaking… you can still dance!

Dawn Drake & her band of over a decade, ZapOte (a luscious tropical fruit) are beautifully filmed by Okay Motion in a lush Brooklyn backdrop that features the signature Colamari Horns (Jackie Coleman and Lynn Ligammari of Durand Jones, Antibalas and Red Baraat), the sounds of the tres guitar played by Benjamin Lapidus, as well as Drake’s own bass, vocals and percussion. The tight rhythm section featuring Rosa Avila (Summer on Broadway, Broadway Bounty Hunter) on drums and Mara Rosenbloom on keys makes you want to get up and groove all the way into post-pandemic land!

While you’re grooving you’ll be in good company with choreography by Hansell Vaillant of La Habana, Cuba accompanied by Ms. Drake and Brooklyn dancer Michele Drysdale. Cameo appearances by Brittany Anjou of BiTyrant and Eliane Amherd from the voice of Switzerland make it all in the family. A motion filled piece from beginning to end, the moves in “Corona King” will give you the energy you need to shake off the Corona King you may have in your own life.

Who is the “Corona King” in the video premiere? We may never find out, as the plot is purposefully gender-non-specific. One is left to guess who the actual Corona King really is. In the end, the takeaway is that perhaps there is hope for singles even in and beyond a global pandemic!

Paul Weinfield – January Sun (Spotify)

“January Sun is a softer and more western-oriented form of folk rock. Paul Weinfield's new single makes you feel a breath of fresh air on the edge of a tall, cool promontory.”

Rising Boston-based Pop singer/songwriter Gillian returns with her first single of 2021 via “burnout”. After releasing a slew of well received music last year, she’s starting off the new year strong and is gearing up to release a ton more music throughout the year.

Gillian treats her music as a conduit for truth. Whether behind the piano or with a guitar in hand, the Boston-based artist chronicles life’s ups and downs, ebbs and flows, and trials and tribulations with thoughtful clarity, poetic eloquence, and a stirring soulful voice. Documenting the dissolution of a relationship, confronting the pains of addiction, or facing loneliness, she confidently conveys unbridled emotion with wisdom that belies her 16 years of age.

Gillian made her introduction in 2019 with the independent release of her debut EP, Unfiltered. The lead single, “What It Felt Like,” impressively tallied 200K Spotify streams — no small feat for an unsigned act. 2020 is set to be another banner year for Gillian as she heads towards the release of her album, 3AM, due for release this Summer.

Ella Beyer – Six Feet (Spotify)

“Heart-touching song with dominating guitar chords and high level vocal capabilities. Music with attitude by the fantastic Ella Beyer. This effort is certainly going to be appreciated by many listeners out there. True creativity skills never stay in the dark.”

-Nagamag.com

Six Feet is a song about longing and love in an uncertain world. While “Six Feet” is Ella’s first official release, she has performed many original songs live. Her signature sound, showcased in this single, is a fresh take on the vintage art form. Ella writes about the world around her, covering themes from love at a distance to the struggles of high school with sage wisdom.

The universe forged an old-soul in 17 year old Ella Beyer. She’s the uncanny incarnate of the 70’s, from her music to her personality, her clothing and style – flowers and all. Through Ella’s songwriting you can hear the influences of Joni Mitchell and Carole King emerge as she takes on current events in her own right. Her honey sweet voice and her bubbly optimism are her spirit trademarks.

The pandemic has been difficult for everyone. So when a 17 year old is able to create musical lemonade from lemons in 2020, while still balancing high school and normal teenage things, its sure to turn heads. “Six Feet” is a current event catch that demonstrates Ella’s remarkable songwriting talent at a young age. While her personal style, and musical influences transcend generations with a sweet charm of an era gone by – Ella’s fresh new single is here to stay, encapsulating a moment in history that wouldn’t be forgotten soon.

When she’s not writing music or studying at her performing arts high school, Ella uses her talent in partnership with the Dragon Kim Foundation where she volunteers with Fostering the Arts. Her unique ability to mix her original works with stunning covers of well-loved songs is a perfect fit for the program, which works to expose kids in the foster care system to opportunities in the arts.

Ella has also performed with shows held by The Music Path, a California non-profit that works to increase access to music in public schools. Beyond just her work in these volunteer and non-profit settings, Ella has participated in shows including the Berklee College of Music Songwriting Sessions, and performs locally at venues such as the Alex Theatre, No Future Café, and Descanso Gardens.

Bjorn Rydhog – Escape (Spotify)

“Music Bjorn Rydhog possesses a surprising feature - it can heal the tech, which deluded in an inconspicuous interpretation of uselessness. Listen to his new single Escape. Find yourself and calm down.”

“Музыка Bjorn Rydhog обладает удивительной особенностью - она может исцелять тех, кто заблудился в непроглядном тумане безысходности. Послушайте его новый сингл Escape. Найдите своё и успокойтесь.”

-Nagamag.com

Artist shared with us few words behind this song:

"Escape" was the first song I crafted back home in Malmö after five inspiring months in India together with my girlfriend. One of the insights that really hit me on the journey, was how unknowingly attached to my thoughts and culture I had been, and in some ways, still am. To get away from unnecessary attachments does take some time and isn’t easy. But still that’s my mission and the song Escape an expression of that desire.

Emina Sonnad – Aperol (Video)

“A new surprice from Emina Sonnad is here. Sophisticated piano-driven song with the singer’s sensual voice echoing elusively in your head! Regardless your music preferences, “Aperol” worths the listening.”

-Nagamag.com

Aperol is a tribute to being unapologetically yourself even when your world is falling apart. I wrote this song while feeling very abandoned at the beginning of the pandemic. I was going through a rough breakup and had unexpectedly ended up quarantining alone in a foreign country, which gave me a lot of time to think about what it means to love someone, and what it means to stand your ground in the face of heartbreak. I remember walking home from the grocery store one night and being stopped by a couple who had spotted a line of strange lights in the sky. It was surreal, just standing there with two strangers and staring up at the sky in silence, wondering if the world was about to end and realizing it wouldn’t surprise me at all. The guy had his arms wrapped around his girlfriend as if he wanted to be as close to her as possible, just in case. Turns it was only some satellites, but in that moment it hit me, “yes, I deserve to be with someone who would stay by my side for the end of the world.” I think having this sense of self advocacy makes it easier to embrace the absurdity of your pain when things get bad. It’s kind of like looking in the mirror and saying “I see you, and you are absolutely ridiculous, but I love you anyway.”

Emina Sonnad is an American singer-songwriter who stumbled upon her musical identity after unexpectedly losing her job teaching English in Madrid. In an effort to find her place in an unfamiliar city, she attended her first open stage night at Sala Alive. Her soft, melancholic voice cut through the chaos of the bar, captivating the crowd, and she was quickly swept away by the vibrancy of the Spanish music scene. Mentored by a tight-knit community of indie musicians, Emina spent the year songwriting, performing in small venues and recording her first single, “Pretending to See Stars,” a dark, introspective ballad self released in 2018. The song’s distinctively wistful vocals caught the attention of Germany’s emerging deep house artist Pretty Pink, who invited Emina to co-write and feature on her next project. The resulting collaboration, “Overrated” was released through Found Frequencies and streamed by millions, bringing Emina to Berlin with a newly acquired taste for electronic music and an unapologetic desire to grow as an artist. Splitting her time between writing techno toplines, hosting open-mic nights in Berlin’s trendy Space Meduza Bar, and releasing an acoustic EP with folk-pop project Half a Disaster, Emina gained a small but dedicated local fanbase, whose support encouraged her to spend the entirety of the 2020 lockdown creating something more personal. Teaming up with Berlin producer Edgar Möller, she recorded six of her original songs, culminating in a record deal with UK based label At Swim Music. Emina’s upcoming releases invite listeners to pause and take comfort in the bleakness, the beauty and the absurdity of everyday life.
