An Australian trio.

Mitchel, Clinton and Christian.

These boys are something else and have every chance to be the next big thing.

With a talent for songwriting, production and performing they have all abilities necessary.

Recently they released their debut album with some old gold and new diamonds.

One track that stands out is "Triggered".

A must listen, just like their full album.

So make sure to check out this amazing band.


Triggered

Who helped you with it? Melody, text, producing...

"Triggered" was written, recorded and produced entirely by ourselves.

How long time did it take from scratch to finish?

Usually between production, writing and mixinga song can be finalised by us within a few days. Triggered was finished over a few weeks amidst creating other tracks for the second EP.

Did you meet any obstacles during the work with it?

"Triggered" is a pretty straight forward track so we didn´t really encounter any technical issues. At first the lyrics did feel a little aggressive in comparison to our other tracks but we liked that!

What`s the inspiration behind it?

The inspiration comes from thefeeling of having someone you love or are in lust with get with someone else. The feeling is especially stronger as a young child and with children being quite imaginative we were able to recreate something we may have thought out as children.

What are your feelings about it now when it`s out and done?

Like every song we make we hear it a million times before it´s even released. That being said we still like the track and enjoy performing it live.

From Melbourne, Australia.

Earlier this year she won a chance to partner up with and get mentorship from Josh Pyke.

And it´s easy to see why she got this opportunity.

Because Angie is a remarkable talented singer with an ear for music.

And she has now released her debut single and it´s wonderful.

"Slow Mover".

With a catchy tune and chorus it´s almost impossible to get it out of your head.

So take a listen and get yourself a new favourite.

You won´t regret it.


Slow Mover

Who helped you with it? Melody, text, producing...
I wrote the song alone, and produced it with John Castle in Melbourne.

How much time did it take from scratch to finish?
Probably two years...initially the chorus sounded really sad, and I left it alone for a few months, then came back to it with a fresh head and reworked it while writing the verses. It was then many months later that my band and I recorded the final version with John, then had it mastered by Adam Dempsey.

Did you meet any obstacles during the work with it?
Yes...we ended up having two different versions of the track. I recorded one with John and he played the drums and bass on it, but then I started rehearsing and performing with my own live band, and I loved the energy they bring to my songs. So we ended up starting over, doing a new recording live with the band, and ditching the old version.

What`s the inspiration behind it?

It's a song written about not dwelling too long on romantic relationships that are poorly timed and not working out. It's inspired by the feeling of putting too much energy into things that aren't worthwhile.

What are your feelings about it now when it`s out and done?

It feels like a big deal, putting your first baby song out into the universe, but it feels great because people are responding to it really well! I'm real glad we reached this milestone. Now onto the next.

She packed her stuff and made the big step to move from southern Illinois to the capital of music, Nashville.

After beginning her studies in music business Cheyenne soon realized that she was made to be on stage, not behind it.

And we should all be happy she made that decision.

With her smooth vocals and strong lyrics she definitely has the qualities to be a successful artist.

Her wonderful debut EP, "It Was Written", went straight to iTunes Country Chart.

And one of those six fantastic songs on the EP are "Just Enough".

A great track which will make you want more.

So give this talented singer a chance.

Push play, listen and repeat.


Just Enough

Who helped you with it? Melody, text, producing...?

I actually wrote everything down to the melody on the guitar, the lyrics, the hook, etc. It was an easily inspired song after a rough patch that I had with a boy. Once we got in the studio my biggest help on the smooth r&b beat was my friend Moe, he plays drums for KB the christian rapper. It's my favorite song on the album.

How long time did it take from scratch to finish?

This song took me 15 minutes max to write after I found the melody!

Did you meet any obstacles during the work with it?

The only obstacle I met while writing this song was the hook. If you listen closely it's the first time I've ever used profanity in an song, but that's exactly how I felt.. and I couldn't hide it.

What`s the inspiration behind it?

I was going through a rough patch with a boy that I felt no longer cared enough to try in our relationship, but I loved him enough to try for the both of us.

What are your feelings about it now when it`s out and done?

I'm obsessed. It's my favorite off the album. I hope everyone loves to bob their head and scream it at the top of their lungs!

She might be based in East Anglia, UK.

But her voice and style will be conquering so much more.

BBC Introducing called her "A superstar in the making" and it is hard to disagree.

Bessie is an excellent creative songwriter with an incredible voice.

And that´s something we all can hear when we listen to her latest release.

"Words You Say".

A catchy song which will get you in mood.

So get in there, push play and sing along.


Words You Say

Who helped you with it? Melody, text, producing...

I wrote the words, melody and guitar parts, friend and confidante Benjamin Ward wrote the drums, Tom Armstrong and George Perks wrote the bass parts and George Perks (Producer/Engineer) helped hugely with the sound and dynamics of the song.

How long time did it take from scratch to finish?

I wrote the song very quickly, probably in less than twenty minutes with distractions and I finished the lyrics on the way to the studio, from writing to end product the song probably took three months. In these three months it was a busy time of summer gigging, tweaking all the little bits in the mix that George was wonderful and patient with and then getting it mastered ready for the world to hear.

Did you meet any obstacles during the work with it?

The only obstacle we met (I met) was the slight little guitar twiddle slide bit in between the chorus and the verse, I'm not the most wonderful guitarist in the world so getting it sounding perfect was a bit of an obstacle to a tired and hormonal me in the studio, haha. Emanating the sound live has been a little bit of a hurdle too as there are only three of us on stage but we've got there in the end and have a really great time playing the song.

What`s the inspiration behind it?

I find this question a bit of a difficult one, when I write it's never about a totally specific thing I suppose it just reflects my headspace at the time. It's about feeling lonely, low, let down perhaps, I still tried to make it sound real happy and feel good though. Like, I'm real low but watch me goooo.

What are your feelings about it now when it`s out and done?

I feel so proud of it. George and the boys really helped me out with the sound, I couldn't really describe how I wanted it to be but we're all such good buddies they just knew... Playing it live is so wonderful too, you don't realise when you're playing it but after watching videos when people punch their hands in the air and sing the words it's like hellll yeahhhh. I think it's a great pop song and I'm really proud to have made it.

Bil Musa.

The talented singer- songwriter from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

She started to play piano at the age of 7 and has since then developed into a wondeful musician.

With her smooth vocals and style, she has every chance to be the next big export from the country.

A week ago she released "No More Excuses".

A song that has the potential to make her a name abroad.

A great song from a fantastic artist which we will hear a lot more about in the future.

So give it a chance and push repeat.


No More Excuses

Who helped you with it? Melody, text, producing...

This was the first time I didn't come up with my own melody. My producer, Kuizz Shah just sort of showed me the song at one of our studio sessions.. it was about 70% done. I thought it was something really different than what I had done before but I loved it and just so happened that I already had the perfect lyrics for the song (I write lyrics in my "notes" sometimes)

How long time did it take from scratch to finish?

I think it only took about two days, on my part, excluding the mastering of the song. The day that he showed me the song, I tracked my vocals straight away. After that, we had just one more session to add some ad libs and harmonies and that was basically it!

Did you meet any obstacles during the work with it?

I think all in all it was a smooth sailing ship. The only part where I was sort of stuck was writing the bridge of the song. I wanted to write something uplifting without sounding too preachy. I think it turned out good! Another obstacle was probably naming the song. We were going back and forth between two names, and of course I decided to name it "No More Excuses".

What`s the inspiration behind it?

The inspiration of the song changed from the first verse towards the end. When I wrote the first few lines, I was thinking about someone specific. Then, towards the first chorus, I was thinking about a few people I knew. Then when it hit the chorus, I suppose it became a song about the kids around my age in general.. my generation. I realised it wasn't just people I knew who were doing these things, there were other people out there who were in the same boat, especially urban young adults. So then it became a song about me too - how sometimes I feel a sense of hopelessness, lack of focus and just hating the world and I know I'm not the only one who feels that way. The song's purpose is not to shade anyone, it's more of a song to say, hey this is how we are, let's acknowledge it and understand that we are not fighting our battles alone.

What are your feelings about it now when it`s out and done?

I'm incredibly excited that it's out! My friends, my producer and I have been giving people sneak previews of the song and everyone's been dying to hear it. So far the feedback has been positive and I'm so grateful that the song speaks to so many people.

From the moment she starts to sing you will be stuck.

With her magnificent voice and talent for writing songs it won´t be long until the bigger mass will notice her.

For a couple of years ago she released the beautiful song "Have It All" which received great reviews.

Now she is back with another fantastic work.

"Light of Day".

A wonderful ballad Amy has made with som help from the duo, Aquilo.

So get in there and listen.

You won´t be disappointed.

I promise.


Light of Day

Who helped you with it? Melody, text, producing...

"Light Of Day" was written by me at the piano, and subsequently produced by the fantastic duo Aquilo in their London studio. Aquilo are also artists in their own right and released their debut album on Island Records earlier this year called Silhouettes - well worth a listen, if you haven't already!

How long time did it take from scratch to finish?

I wrote the song and recorded a rough piano demo of it at home over a couple of days. I then spent two afternoons in the studio recording with Aquilo. A few tweaks were made remotely to finish the song, before it was sent off for mixing and mastering in preparation for its release on Aesop.

Did you meet any obstacles during the work with it?

Actually I was lucky enough that the whole process went very smoothly!

What`s the inspiration behind it?

The lyrics of "Light Of Day" are pretty self-explanatory: an underdog to top dog Cinderella story scenario (though nobody's saying Cindy's the she) from the outside. Tentative believing and blushing pride from the inside. I guess the feeling that it's just all a bit surreal when you find out something you wished for so hard is within reach or actually does exist.

What are your feelings about it now when it`s out and done?

I really am SO pleased with it. It was fantastic working with Aquilo. I've followed their career from the off, and they're both as lovely as their music. (Which is VERY lovely). I loved having the chance to get out the guitars for this song - thanks to Ben and Tom's expertise rather than my own... The song really is just how I wanted it to be, so I'm particularly grateful for that!

From Wales with a passion for fashion, she packed her bags to work with Balenciaga in Paris.

Just to realize her passion for music was a little bigger.

Betsy know what she wants.

And we know that we want more of her sound.

With her unique, distinctive voice she has every chance to go big.

A week ago she released her self- titled album which contain the lovely song "Waiting".

A lovely piece you have to listen to.

Just like her full album.


Waiting

Who helped you with it? Melody, text, producing…

So this is one I wrote with the wonderful Jack McManus who also co-produced the track with Peter Jarrett who produced a lot of my album. And we had the amazing Tim Baxter add real strings to it as well which was an amazing experience to see all these brilliant string players in action.

How long time did it take from scratch to finish?

Well, the writing was really quick - we wrote it in an afternoon. With me it usually is quick because I'm quite an impulsive writer. As soon as I know what the song is about it sort of writes itself. Jack also did most of the production that day too but of course it took a few more weeks to finesse and mix etc

Did you meet any obstacles during the work with it?

We tried to re-record the vocal (the one that is on the final record I recorded as we wrote it at Jack’s studio ). The problem is that the original vocal just had a great energy - somehow because it was recorded while we wrote it, it had an extra bit of passion, so in the end it stayed.

What`s the inspiration behind it?

It’s about someone I met and fell instantly in love with (lust probably looking back – ha!). That feeling you get when you meet someone and you think this is it, this is the one! Of course in this case as in many cases of instant obsession we were both with other people and it was forbidden which made it seem so much stronger than it was.

What are your feelings about it now when it`s out and done?

Pride. I’m extremely proud of it, as I am of all my songs. I don't like to put out anything I am happy with it so once it’s out I know I did my best.

Jordan Waller.

A 23 year old based out of Vancouver, Canada.

With a desire to all the time develope as a musician, Jordan has taught himself to play several instruments.

Last year he released his debut single "This Feeling".

A song which reached the Billboard Canada Top 100.

Now he´s back with a new single.

"Let You Down".

A glimpse of what we will hear from his debut album that will be released next spring, 2018.

A modern song which has every chance to take him to the top charts once again


Let You Down

Who helped you with it? Melody, text, producing...

A long time friend of mine named Jon Velasquez is my producer and co- writer. On this song I wrote majority of the lyrics and melodies and we work together to make sure all the right parts are there and the song is sounding the way we feel is right.

How long time did it take from scratch to finish?

W made this song around the end of 2015 or the beginning of 2016.. I can´t fully remember, haha. But if you heard the first version of this song you would laugh at how different it is from the final version. It started with super indy rock vibes and then we were like... why are we making a indy rock song? At this time we hadn´t released "This Feeling" so we were still trying to find our sound.

Did you meet any obstacles during the work with it?

The chorus to "Let You Down" came so fast and easy but the rest of the song did not. I sat in the vocal booth with the pre chorus playing over and over and over again. Then all of sudden I started humming the melody tgat you here in the pre chorus now and then sang those lyrics and it felt like the best thing I´d ever written! I was really proud of that pre chorus! Also it´s tough wwriting a chorus first and then going backwards towards the verse but that´s just the way we writr a lot of the time.

What`s the inspiration behind it?

I had a friend of mine say that he wishes people could write music incorporating things like Instagram because it´s such a real part of everyones´ life. So I decided to try and do it. The original lyric to the opening line was.. "You´re creepin on my insta". But we changed to lookin because saying Insta was already pushing it, haha. So for me the song is really about love in the modern world of everything available at our finger tips. I was in a relationship where a lot of drama came from things on Instagram i. ex. liking a certain photo or posting and not reply to a text. Things like that.

What are your feelings about it now when it`s out and done?

To be honest I was a little worried about it. I love the song but I just wasn´t sure how people would respond. But now that it´s out I am sp proud of this song and to hear the great responses from people is amazing.

The talented Billy Cullum.

Music, acting and choreography are all things Billy can do pretty well.

An amazing vocalist who already at this stage of his career can write hit songs.

The London based artist has a bright future and a great chance going big in the next year.

He showed us his abilities with "Lost In You" and has certainly not made us disappointed with his latest single.

"Hands Are Gonna Fall".

A song you can´t resist.

A chorus you won´t forget.


Hands Are Gonna Fall

Who helped you with it? Melody, text, producing...

I Went to my producer Alex Bakker in Bristol, UK, with a track I'd been working on at home which I thought had some big potential, but I was a bit stuck with the direction of it. So then me, Alex and his partner Ellen sat down and wrote the track from the original idea I brought to the studio.

How long time did it take from scratch to finish?

We wrote the song in roughly 2 hours I'd say. The pre-chorus "when we hit notes..." idea I had previously written though.

Did you meet any obstacles during the work with it?

It happened pretty naturally to be honest and it was a really quick process. We were all on the same page. The trickiest part I guess was turning what I brought to the studio, which had this 'The Chainsmokers' vibe, to the slick and sexy style of the song it is now. I'm so used to just writing a whole song on my own so it's always exciting and different when you collaborate. It challenges your melodies and lyrics when writing as new people always bring something new to your artistry.

What`s the inspiration behind it?

Its funny... the original song came from watching the film 'LA LA Land.' The scene where they are both at the piano and their hands are brushing on each others reminded me of that first moment you touch hands with someone you desire. It's still primarily all about that, the first touch. It's filled with curiosity, mystique and sexual tension. It's always an exciting part of a relationship when it's been brewing for so long and that first touch of skin on skin is a dose of euphoria.

What are your feelings about it now when it`s out and done?

I'm over the moon with the it. I didn't realise how sexy the song was until blogs and people have commented on it. It is super sexy - I think I've realised that more and more with people's response. I like that melodically it has this commercial appeal but production wise it's minimal which takes my music to a new territory which is exciting.

It´s a hard route going from covers on Youtube to be a successful independent artist in the "real" world.

But Taylor Belle is up to the challenge.

And she is doing a pretty good job.

The 19 year old girl from Long Island, New York, isn´t giving up without a fight.

With her latest single "Another World" can we all see her true talent.

She is one to count on.

One to keep an eye on.

And definitely one to listen to.


Another World

Who helped you with it? Melody, text, producing...

For "Another World" I did the beat production with my producer Josh Beauchamp. From there I wrote all of the lyrics and melody lines myself.

How long time did it take from scratch to finish?

I like to write my songs in pieces so between writing the song and then recording it, it probably took about two weeks. One session to create the beat and write the verses and chorus, one session to write the bridge, and one studio session to lay down all of the vocals.

Did you meet any obstacles during the work with it?

With this song there weren't many obstacles, we just tried to take our time and perfect it which made it a pretty long process.

What`s the inspiration behind it?

For many years now I've struggled with anxiety and depression and often times found myself wishing I had an escape from it all. Whether it be another place, a person, a feeling, I was always searching for small moments of peace and clarity. I think that that's something that everyone faces in some degree so I wanted to write about it. It's important for people to feel understood.

What are your feelings about it now when it`s out and done?

It is so exciting to finally have the song out and know that people are hearing it. Knowing that people are digging the song and getting actual feedback is one of the best feelings. It makes me even more excited to release my next project.
