Sylo – Millions

Known for delectable tracks like “Ginny” and “FOMO,” Sylo (formerly Sylo Nozra) is back today with a new name and new single “Millions.” Introducing this chapter in his artistry, the Korean-Canadian alt R&B aficionado takes a step into a more intimate side of his musicality that showcases his sultry vocals over delicate production. Written in a remote cottage last fall, “Millions” is a silky love letter written in the form of manifesting none other than millions of dollars. Listen HERE.

Fusing acoustic instrumentation with intentionally stripped back production, Sylo continues to build out his own breed of modern alt R&B. A breezy listen from front to back, ‘Millions‘ is a tender, windows down type of song that begs for the warmer months to come.

Giving a closer look into the track, Sylo said, “This song isn’t about being rich. It’s about letting my imagination run wild.”

At the end of April through early May, Sylo will be joining MICHELLE for a North American run that will hit Philadelphia, Boston, DC and New York. All tour and ticketing info can be found HERE.

ABOUT SYLO

Raised in Toronto, ON, Sylo’s take on R&B is inspired by his environment. He was born into a Korean family with religious roots. This inspired him to sing as a child in church services, leading him to learn several instruments at once. Sylo’s musical talents were further enhanced by his older sister who played 90s R&B and hip-hop to full effect. Once he learned how to apply his inspirations onto his own productions, he became driven to write and perform his own songs for the world. Sylo has now become known for his silky records that were created in his own bedroom studio. The work has received global recognition, charting virally on both Spotify and Apple Music. Additionally, his songwriting skills have placed him in studios amongst GRAMMY-winning/nominated songwriters in Los Angeles, London and Toronto. This year will see Sylo on tour supporting MICHELLE and more new music to come.

The Grammy Awards

Sunday, April 3, the 64th Grammy Awards were held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Trevor Noah hosted the esteemed award show where looks were turned on the red carpet, performances were given and winners were crowned.

A good number of awards were bestowed before the telecast commenced, including The Best Rap Album award won by Tyler, the Creator’s Call Me If You Get Lost. The Grammy’s have had a longstanding history of opposition with hip-hop dating all the way back to 1989. A pattern of not broadcasting or platforming hip-hop has grown to be infamous with the Grammy’s, hinting as to why many artists in the genre were not in attendance and have even boycotted the show.

Of the most captivating performances of the night included Olivia Rodrigo, who walked away with a stunning three Grammy Awards by the end of the night. She took to the stage while performing her breakout 2021 hit, ‘Drivers License,’ which ultimately won the Grammy for Best Pop Solo Performance.

Other noteworthy acts included Billie Eilish’s rendition of her hit ‘Happier Than Ever,’ and Lil Nas X joined by Jack Harlow to perform fan favorite ‘Industry Baby.’

Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy sent in a pre-taped message to the Vegas showing in which he spoke on the significance of music and support for Ukraine right now. While words were spoken, John Legend took to the stage to perform “Free,” with Ukrainian artists Siuzanna Iglidan, Mika Newton and Lyuba Yakimchuck.

Zelenskyy began his speech, stating, “The war doesn’t let us choose who survives and who stays in eternal silence, […] Our musicians wear body armor instead of tuxedos. They sing to the wounded in hospitals. Even to those who can’t hear them. But the music will break through anyway.

“We defend our freedom. To live. To love. To sound. On our land, we are fighting Russia which brings horrible silence with its bombs. Fill the silence with your music. Fill it today. Tell our story. Tell the truth about the war on your social networks and TV. But not silence.”

One of the most touching moments of the night came from Jazmine Sullivan‘s superb acceptance speech as her album was named the R&B Album Grammy winner.

Sullivan spoke to the inspiration of the piece, and how the album embodied a voice for Black women, while stating, “I wrote this project to deal with my own shame and unforgiveness around decisions I made in my 20s that weren’t favorable. But what it ended up being was a safe space for Black women to tell their stories, for us to learn from each other, laugh with each other, and not be exploited at the same time. That’s what I’m most grateful for. Shoutout to all Black women who are just living their lives and being beautiful.”

We also saw Doja Cat and SZA receive their first wins for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their collaboration on “Kiss Me More.” Their acceptance speech rung more lighthearted, with both artists cracking jokes about Doja rushing to the bathroom prior to the announcement. SZA teased, “Bro, you went to the bathroom for five minutes. Are you serious?” to which Doja replied, “I have never taken such a fast piss in my whole life.”

The pair continued to thank express their gratefulness to each other and those around them, to which Doja showed emotional rawness while raving, “I like to downplay shit, but this? It’s a big deal. Thank you, everybody.

Iconic pop duo Bahari released the music video for their coveted single “Ways of Love,” and you’ll want to take a look. The steamy video can be viewed HERE.

The compassionate lyrics captivate all audiences, “You give me these feelings, I don’t understand, Take control of my body, I’m in your hands.”

“‘Ways of Love’ is about that moment and feeling right before you finally give in to falling in love with someone. It’s about that decision to trust someone with your heart and to learn the way that they love,” says Bahari considering the message behind the single.

You can stream “Ways of LoveHERE.

Bahari

A match made in heaven, this alt-pop woman duo consists of singer/keyboarder Ruby Carr and singer/bassist Natalia Panzarella. The two artists came together by random chance one day when they were both at the same songwriting session. They knew they stuck gold from that moment and continued to generate music together.

Their first and perhaps most noteworthy hit came in 2014 with “Wild Ones,” accumulating a total of over 40 million Spotify streams. They continued with their successes in 2016 with the release of their EP Dancing on the Sun and singles “Get Together” and “Fucked Up.” They even hit the stage on tours with Selena Gomez and Birdy and joined forces with Zedd, ILLENIUM and Grey on collabs.

Bahari produced another newsy hit in 2018 with “Savage,” which was later revamped into a remix in 2020 featuring BIA. “Savage” amasses over 100 million streams/views and now serves as promo content for “American Horror Stories.” In 2021, the duo’s “CRASHING” in cooperation with ILLENIUM joined the To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You Original Soundtrack. Follow along as Bahari takes on 2022 with more electrifying projects to come.

Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto’s DEVIL’S REIGN #1 takes us along Kingpin’s story as now mayor of New York City. We follow along as Kingpin battles with channeling his criminal but also political powers with the superheroes of NYC. Setting out for icons like Iron Man, Captain America, Spider-Man, Jessica Jones and more, since it’s Fisk, he’s waiting such a long time to take over, and has a lot in store.

New symbiote saga kicks off in Ram V, Al Ewing and Bryan Hitch’s VENOM #1. Developments for the father-son duo Eddie and Dylan Brock diverge as each author places their focus on varying characters.

Elton: Jewel Box

Elton John announces the forthcoming release of Elton: Jewel Box. Released on November 13th via UMe / EMI, Elton: Jewel Box is an unrivaled collection containing 148 songs spanning 1965 to 2019 on 8CD, 4LP, 3LP, 2LP, digital download, and streaming formats.

The ultimate exploration into Elton’s extensive back catalog, Elton: Jewel Box covers deep cuts, rarities from the earliest stages of his and Bernie Taupin’s musical journey, B-side spanning 30 years, and songs discussed in his best-selling, critically acclaimed 2019 memoir Me. The 8 CD boxset of buried treasures comes in a beautiful hardcover book with the discs housed in the back, all wrapped in an outer slipcase. Each section comes accompanied by extensive notes, including a track-by-track commentary by Elton for Deep Cuts. Three different LP collections are also available to pre-order now – a 4LP gatefold black vinyl set of Deep Cuts (curated by Elton himself), a 3LP gatefold black vinyl set of Rarities and B-side highlights, and a 2LP gatefold black vinyl set “And This Is Me…”. All audio was mastered at Abbey Road Studios by GRAMMY-winning mastering engineer Sean Magee. With an unprecedented number of previously unheard and unreleased tracks painstakingly excavated from deep within the UMG archives, this is the ultimate treasure trove for Elton John fans.

As a first taster of some of the many gems gathered within Elton: Jewel Box, “Sing Me No Sad Songs” is today unveiled for the very first time. Listen here. Previously unreleased, the track was written and recorded as a band demo in 1969. “Sing Me No Sad Songs” is a fascinating first taste of what was to come from Elton and lyricist Bernie Taupin, and one that mentions not one, but two, future smashes in its lyrics – “Sad Songs (Say So Much)” from 1984’s Breaking Heartsalbum and Elton’s first UK chart-topping single “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” from 1976.

Speaking of the release, Elton says, “To delve back through every period of my career in such detail for Jewel Box” has been an absolute pleasure. Hearing these long lost tracks again, I find it hard to comprehend just how prolific Bernie and I were during the early days. The songs just poured out of us, and the band were just unbelievable in the studio. I always want to push forward with everything I do and look to the future, but having time during lockdown to take stock and pull these moments from my memory from each era has been a joy. As a devout record collector myself, this project has really excited me, and I couldn’t be happier with the level of craft involved in such a carefully curated, lovingly constructed boxset. I’m sure my fans will enjoy it as much as I have.”

Disc 8: And This Is Me . . . – To coincide with the release of the updated paperback edition of Me, the final collection celebrates the songs mentioned by name by Elton in his acclaimed autobiography, closing Jewel Box with the 2020 Academy Award-winning duet with Taron Egerton, “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again.”

Elton: Jewel Box is yet another marker in an incredible few years for the world’s favorite singer-songwriter. Since the release of the ultimate greatest hits album Diamonds in 2017, Elton has undertaken a breathtaking 3 years of activity that are unmatched in their ambition, reach and impact across generations of music fans. Elton announced his record-breaking Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour at New York’s Gotham Hall in January 2018, with a typically forward-looking virtual reality spectacular. Encompassing 5 continents and over 300 dates, this 3-year-long tour started in September 2018 and marks his retirement from touring after more than 50 years on the road. August 2018 saw Elton named as the most successful male solo artist in Billboard Hot 100 chart history. In 2019, the Farewell Tour was named Billboard’s Top Rock Tour and Pollstar’s Major Tour Of The Year. 2019 also saw the release of Elton’s critically acclaimed global bestselling autobiography, Me. The 2019 epic fantasy musical motion picture of Elton’s life, Rocketman, has been a commercial and critical hit, taking over $200m at the box office. It has won an Oscar, 2 Golden Globe Awards, and a Critics’ Choice Award, and garnered BAFTA nominations. Its soundtrack was also nominated for a GRAMMY Award. 2019 also saw Elton awarded the Légion d’ honneur, France’s highest award, for his lifetime contribution to the arts and the fight against HIV/AIDS.  He was also honored with both a Royal Mail stamp collection and Royal Mint coin collection. Diamonds, the ultimate greatest hits package of Elton and Bernie, has spent a staggering 148 consecutive weeks in the UK album charts, including 29 weeks in the Top 20 in 2020 alone, selling over a million copies worldwide in the process and recently reaching double-platinum status in the UK.

An unparalleled career that has forever changed the cultural landscape, Elton John’s collaborations with Bernie Taupin and others continue to shape the cultural landscape, break records, top charts, and win new fans across the generations. We’ve had the book, the film, the farewell tour, the fashion collections, and the greatest hits. And now, with Elton: Jewel Box, fans finally have the treasure trove of previously unheard and unreleased tracks they have been waiting for from the world’s favorite singer-songwriter.

Halsey × HBO

Halsey’s If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power Film Experience will debut on Thursday, October 7, on HBO Max in the U.S. as a MAX ORIGINAL film. HBO Max has acquired the film after a limited theatrical run in IMAX theaters, which broke nearly $1M at the box office after selling out in 70+ theaters globally. Halsey and the filmmakers were represented by WME and Endeavor Content in the distribution deal.

Set to the music of Halsey’s fourth studio album, this one-of-a-kind film experience stars the two-time GRAMMY nominee as the young and pregnant Queen Lila. After a shocking event, Lila unlocks a paranormal power within and discovers her ability to create life (and end it). Offering a stunning visual treat for fans, this evocative, horror-tinged fairytale explores the labyrinth of sexuality and birth. If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power was written by Halsey and directed by Colin Tilley. The album was produced by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. The film was produced by Halsey, Jamee Ranta and Anthony Li.

This Saturday, October 9, Halsey will make their fourth appearance as musical guest on  Saturday Night Live. If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power recently debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Current Albums chart their third consecutive release to top the tally. Hailed as Halsey’s best album yet by Vulture, If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power also topped Billboard’s Alternative Albums, Vinyl Albums and Tastemaker Albums charts and claimed the #01 position on the Spotify Top 10 Global Album Debuts chart.

In a four-star review, NME praised the album as “an intricate and an endlessly compelling artistic statement that only Halsey could have made.”Pitchfork observed, Halsey lets horror of the body, of the mind, of mortality radiate outward. The result is alluring and spectral. It’s their best work yet. SPIN said,  Halsey is not a woman, they’re a rock God. And IICHLIWP proves she’s earned the title.

The Greeting Committee – Dandelion

Today marks the long-anticipated release of Dandelion, the sophomore album from Kansas City-based alt-rock band The Greeting Committee. Released via Harvest Records, Dandelion finds the four-piece working with esteemed producer Jennifer Decilveo (MARINA, FLETCHER, Bat for Lashes) and mixer Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, Tame Impala), delivering a moody and mercurial sound perfectly suited to the album’s emotional terrain. To celebrate Dandelion’s arrival, The Greeting Committee have also shared the video for Make Out, one of the album’s more lighthearted moments. Go listen to Dandelion, and check out the video for Make Out 

The follow-up to The Greeting Committee’s acclaimed 2018 debut album This Is It, Dandelion documents a particularly painful period in the life of frontwoman Addie Sartino, including the grief and inertia she experienced after a devastating breakup. Most of these songs are about feeling like you’re watching your life instead of living it: just going through the motions and feeling stuck and wanting to break out of that, but not really knowing how, she says.

Despite its often-brutal honesty, Dandelion radiates an irrepressible and unbridled energy, thanks in part to the joyful chemistry that The Greeting Committee bring to every track. To that end, the band selected the album’s title due to its suggestion of an unlikely hope. Dandelions are weeds, but depending on your perspective, you can shrug them off or you can choose to see them as a sort of beautiful flower, similar to how we have the choice in what we see in ourselves, says Sartino.

With its fuzzed-out riffs and pogo-ready rhythms, Make Out serves as a bold departure from Dandelion’s heavy-hearted tone. Co-directed by the band and Malik Lemon, the track’s outrageous video finds guitarist Brandon Yangmi facing off in a fantastically chaotic wrestling match featuring Wrestle Yr Friends (a queer wrestling collective based in Kansas City). With Sartino and bassist Pierce Turcotte playing the part of the match’s commentators, the visual makes for a brilliant counterpart to the free-spirited mood of Make Out. For the most part I like to get deep and uncomfortable in my lyrics, but this song is like the Antichrist of that, Sartino says. It’s somewhat of a true tale, about a girl who stuck her tongue out at me at a show in East Virginia and used to send me selfies where she’s in her rollerblades or eating pickles. It was the first time after my breakup that I thought, Maybe I’ll be okay. Maybe life can be fun again, and I won’t be sad forever.

In creating the tracklist for Dandelion, The Greeting Committee made a point of leading their listeners on a cathartic emotional journey. I wanted the record to really show the healing process, starting at a place of desperation and eventually getting to the point of being willing to accept reality, says Sartino. Hailed by Clash as a raw portrayal of post-break-up poignance, the album-opening lead single Can I Leave Me Too? perfectly captures the confusion of heartbreak, while its follow-up Float Away examines how depression warps our self-image. (Released in July, the track earned acclaim from Pop Matters, who likened its sonic elements to the haunted carousel all our minds seem to be stuck riding lately.) And on Ada an August release praised by Earmilk, who noted the band’s warm, welcoming, and vibrant indie rock sound. The Greeting Committee offer up a LGBTQ anthem inspired by a trans woman they befriended years ago, as well as Sartino’s own experience in coming out.

Closing out with the piano-laced reverie of Ten, Dandelion ultimately fulfills The Greeting Committee’s mission of providing their audience with an undeniable sense of emotional solidarity. Over the years we’ve had people come up to us at shows and tell us that our music has saved their lives, which is something we take very seriously, says Sartino. It’s really special to be part of the soundtrack to someone else’s experience, and we want to continue being a source of comfort to our fans and help them understand that they’re not alone.

In celebration of the album release, the band will be on Travis Mills’ Beats 1 Apple Music show and will also collaborate with Fender for a signed guitar giveaway and social takeover.
