“There’s something about “Springtime” that has the freshness, light and hope of the season it’s titled after.

Jonah Kagen – Barcelona

Jonah Kagen releases his new single & cinematic music video “Barcelona” today via Arista Records. Jonah dives deep into his vulnerability in this uptempo heartbreak anthem with a 2022-bossa nova flare. It was produced and co-written by Michael Pollack (Maroon 5, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Bebe Rexha) and David Kingston.

Jonah adds, "This song is for anybody who’s had someone they care about move away. For me it was “Barcelona”, but I know the idea of wishing someone hadn’t gone to that place and hoping they would just come back is something many people can understand. Maybe listening to “Barcelona” will let you groove your pain away. Who knows. Give it a shot."

“Barcelona” follows both “ Turbulence” and “Drowning,” which were released during Jonah’s month-long tour of the U.S. as the support for Maisie Peters.

The 22-year-old Jonah Kagen grew up in Savannah, Georgia and took up guitar at the age of six, diving deep into the instrument’s technical aspects after his jazz musician grandfather showed him performance videos. He further found inspiration in the music of guitarist Andy McKee, whose fingerstyle technique lit a creative fire within. “He opened my eyes to what an acoustic guitar could be,” he recalls, as he dove deeper into creating music on his own. “If you can bring somebody something with your music that they can’t get anywhere else, there’s nothing better than that.”

While attending college, his sister encouraged him to post his music on social media and he garnered early success as a Tiktok sensation with the release of his debut single “Broken.” “I saw people resonating with what I made,” Kagen recalls while remembering how “Broken” caught on, “and the feeling was so overwhelming and special.”

An exciting new voice bringing an undeniable energy and sincerity through his multifaceted sound, Jonah soon found himself inking a deal with Arista. Jonah has also released “Catching A Dream,” “Wish You Did,” and “Moon.” Further, he collaborated with Matoma for “Summer Feeling” which was praised by The Hidden Hits for “[whisking] us off our feet one verse at a time.”

Ingvild Koksvik – Hver vår vei

“A beautifully written, guitar-based piece from the Norwegian artist that enwraps the listener in a soothing and caressing sound, with perfectly suiting vocals telling a story of the power to go on. While you may not speak Norwegian, however, you will probably still connect with the song and find it relatable due to its honest transmission and great arrangement.”

-Nagamag.com

Acclaimed Norwegian artist Ingvild Koksvik releases her first single in a while, as a long-awaited sneak peek on what to expect from her new solo album due in September: “Hver vår vei” is as much about the return of daylight after dark winters in the Nordics, as it is about leaving a relationship behind and going in two separate directions. With a warm and soothing sound, led by Ingvild Koksvik’s crystal clear voice, the song invites listeners to reflect and attain new hope.

Leo Einaudi x Giulia Vallisari – Let It Burn

“Leo Einaudi and Giulia Vallisari have successfully married acoustic Folk with their softly echoing vocals, in a song that blooms like a late Spring flower. Friendly strings of guitar, setting the scene for your personal relaxation moments, while looking the Sun setting down the horizon.”

-Nagamag.com

Warming single Let It Burn is a simple song blending acoustic folk accompaniment with soft, comforting vocals by Leo Einaudi and Giulia Vallisari.

As a duo, Leo Einaudi and Giulia Vallisari experiment with familiar tones through an array of songs and instrumentals.

Singer, composer and musician Giulia Vallisari spans from smooth, sultry jazz and personal songs in her native Italian language to the atmospheric crossover recordings of her indie-electronica band project Caveleon with fellow band member Leo Einaudi.

With similar eclectic interests including cinema, theatre, multimedia and live performance, Leo Einaudi follows a lineage stemming from contemporary piano and classical composition, and expanding across guitar instrumentals and songwriting. From his family home in Milan, Leo developed his skills in collaboration with his father Ludovico on a wealth of record-breaking projects while also progressing his own dynamic sound encompassing classical scoring through intimate tones and powerful evolving waves, rock-influenced electronic tone poems and cinematic songscapes with guitar tones and moody vocals.

The duo have an adaptive style sometimes reminiscent of Radiohead and Maribou State, sometimes inhabiting the realm of contemporary classical crossover, sometimes with the subtle songwriting influences of The Beatles and sometimes something totally different.
