Rising, acclaimed pop sensation JORDY today unveiled his ethereal, stripped-back new single “i get high,” available now on all streaming platforms. Pairing vulnerable, poignant lyricism with a stunning vocal range, the new song is an introspective reflection on anxiety, vices, and mediating the two. Co-written with frequent collaborator Drew Polovick, “i get high” continues to underscore JORDY’s conversational, raw, and diaristic lyrical style that has resonated with fans nationwide. The accompanying music video is also out today and available to watch HERE. Directed by Lily Judge, the visual features a powerful performance from the artist, complete with an Autumn-ready backdrop.

Regarding the new track, JORDY has the following message to share with his fans:

“I think everyone has some sort of vice. In good times or bad, it’s hard not to indulge whether in celebration or solitude. I have been using cannabis for a long time for medicinal purposes, but also recreational ones. Sometimes to ease anxiety, or sometimes when I go out socially; sometimes to help me sleep through the night, or sometimes to celebrate a milestone. I’ve never considered my relationship with marijuana unhealthy, but I can’t help but analyze and wonder if it’s a temporary fulfillment of an empty void; I am still in the process of figuring that out. My goal with my music is always to be upfront and honest, and this song is truly a reflection of that. It’s simply my truth. And if it’s mine, it’s probably someone else’s too. Whether it’s taking a hit or having a drink, going on dates or a casual hookup, we all something we turn to help us feel a bit more or feel a bit less. But my overall goal with this song is to help people feel a little more heard and understood.” – JORDY

In support of “i get high” and his slew of new singles, JORDY will be playing a series of special headline shows in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles throughout the late fall and winter. This weekend, he will also head to Hawaii to headline Honolulu Pride Festival on Sunday, 10/16. A full itinerary of dates can be found below, with all tickets available on JORDYMusic.com.

JORDY is also in the studio working on his much-anticipated sophomore project, with more details to be revealed soon.

About JORDY:

Drawing inspiration from pop staples such as The Spice Girls, Michelle Branch, Avril Lavigne, and contemporaries such as Sam Smith, Troye Sivan, and Lauv, JORDY’s songs blend the glimmering, bouncy 90s pop sound with sincere, heartfelt songwriting. He unveiled his debut album Mind Games in November 2021, along with a companion acoustic EP in February, and Pride anthem “Dry Spell” earlier this summer, which Teen Vogue hailed “a bright new single made for the dance floor,” while Billboard crowned it “one of his best produced tracks to date.” Furthermore, Shondaland lauded the song “a drop-everything-and-dance-delight.” Afterwards, he shared the bubbly earworm “IDK SH!T,” chronicling the challenges of young adulthood in his twenties. V Magazine praised its “head-bopping beat and refreshingly honest lyrics,” along with The Huffington Post calling it “the perfect anthem for 20-somethings a track designed for maximum volume.” In tandem with the latter single’s release, JORDY made his hometown debut at Lollapalooza over the summer, playing the T-Mobile mainstage to a high-spirited crowd. In 2022, he also hit the festival circuit at BottleRock Napa Valley, headlined Washashore Festival (Provincetown, MA), and played a slew of Pride performances all across the U.S. 

JORDY’s heart-on-his-sleeve approach to modern pop music has resulted in 100M+ career streams, sold out shows across the U.S., and a devoted following on TikTok that started with his dance-pop hit “Long Distance” that went viral on the platform in 2021. A relatable song about loneliness and the struggles of long distance relationships during the Covid-19 pandemic, JORDY delivered a stellar performance of the track during his national television debut on The TODAY Show, and earlier this year, he nabbed a nomination at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in the “Social Star” category.

Maisie Peters – CATE’S BROTHER

British pop singer-songwriter Maisie Peters shares “Cate’s Brother (Breland’s Version),” a rework of her viral track featuring boundary-pushing singer-songwriter Breland, available now on all streaming platforms.

Last month Maisie took the stage at CBS‘s Late Late Show with James Corden for an electrifying performance of her viral single “Cate‘s Brother.” The episode was part of Corden’s special run of shows from London and landed in the midst of a 5 night stand at London’s Wembley Stadium supporting Ed Sheeran‘s “+–=÷x Tour.” Watch the performance HERE.

Recently announced, Maisie‘s North American headline tour dubbed ‘i’m telling the whole of america tour’ is selling fast. The 5-date run kicks off on November 4th with a sold-out show at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York and makes stops in Toronto (SOLD OUT), Chicago (VENUE UPGRADED), and San Francisco (SOLD OUT) before wrapping at The Wiltern in Los Angles on November 14th. For tickets and more information on Maisie’s upcoming North American tour please visit HERE.

Last month, Maisie unveiled “Cate’s Brother (Matt’s Version),” a stripped-back version of her viral song featuring British singer-songwriter Matt Maltese. No stranger to a TikTok hit – his own, ‘As The World Caves In’, exploded on the platform during lockdown – Matt joined Maisie to expand the ‘Cate’s Brother’ universe, and shared his response to the original story.

Released in May, the original version of “Cate’s Brother” arrived to critical acclaim and has already cracked 8.7M million streams. Based on a true story, Maisie initially teased the track live from a studio session in February and with an overwhelming response from her fanbase, continued working on the song in real time, sharing everything from Cate’s first listen reaction to debut performances. Upon release, Billboard praised the track as “fantastic” adding “the storytelling beneath the wiry pop-rock production is top-notch” while People declared Maisie as “pop’s next big thing.” Consequence of Sound described the track as “vibrant, playful and fun” and hailed, “If there was ever any doubt that Peters can oscillate between more delicate, introspective tracks over to crowd-ready bops like this, let ‘Cate’s Brother’ be the end of the conversation.”

Before amassing over half a billion global streams, Maisie spent time honing her craft in sessions across London, LA and Nashville, creating songs for her 2021 debut album ‘You Signed Up For This’ alongside the likes of Ed Sheeran, Steve Mac, Fred again.., Johnny McDaid, Miranda Cooper, and producers Joe Rubel (Tom Grennan, Benjamin Francis Leftwich), Afterhrs (Niall Horan, GRACEY), Rob Milton (Easy Life, Holly Humberstone) and Brad Ellis (Jorja Smith, Little Mix). With an innate gift for storytelling, crafting relatable, diary-entry songs, ‘You Signed Up For This‘ is both Maisie’s coming of age story and a love letter to girlhood; penned with the wit, charm and quiet confidence that has seen her ascend from busking on the streets of Brighton to signing with Ed Sheeran‘s Gingerbread Man Records and selling out her entire 2022 North American ‘You Signed Up For This‘ tour.

Returning home after her sold-out 19-date You Signed Up For This tour, which included standout shows at The El Rey and New York’s Webster Hall, Maisie is playing to a further 2.5 million+ people this summer as support on Ed Sheeran‘s ‘+–=÷x Tour’ in Europe and working on the follow up to her acclaimed debut album ‘You Signed Up For This.’

With a voice just loud enough to give you goosebumps, Mimi Webb shines on her debut Seven Shades of Heartbreak EP and more to come.

About Mimi Webb

Mimi Webb projects a voice as magnetic, massive, and magical as her personality. As “the girl next door” with a hell of vocal range, she’s quick to laugh, will let you know precisely what’s on her mind, and isn’t afraid to be heard. Originally hailing from the UK town of Canterbury, the pop singer and songwriter turns up the volume on every emotion with skyscraping runs and open-heart honesty.

Inspired by the likes of Amy Winehouse, Emelie Sandé and Sam Smith, she started writing songs of her own at 13-years-old in diaries before eventually learning guitar. Around the same time, she enrolled in The BRIT School—known for alumni such as Adele, Amy Winehouse, Jessie J and more. Three years later, she left home, moved in with a host family, and attended the prestigious BIMM [British Institute of Modern Music]. In 2019, she uploaded a handful of early compositions and collaborations online, landed management, and inked a deal with Epic Records. Mimi Webb‘s impromptu acapella videos exploded with over 20 million views on TikTok, paving the way for a string of original fan favorites such as “Before I Go,” “I’ll Break My Heart Again,” “Reasons,” and “Good Without.” Amassing close to half a billion streams, she made waves with international hits: “Good Without” and “Dumb Love.” The singles concurrently captured places in the Top 15 on the UK Singles Chart, which cemented Mimi as “the first UK female artist, since Dua Lipa in 2017, to land two singles in the UK Top 15 before the release of her debut album.”

Japanese Breakfast

Tuesday, January 18, indie pop act Japanese Breakfast performed “Slide Tackle,” a track from their GRAMMY-nominated album, Jubilee, on The Late Show with James Corden. Michelle Zauner, applauded founder, did a ‘Bar Chat interview where she talked about these recent nominations and more. Watch Japanese Breakfast’s performance on The Late Show with James Corden HERE.

Jubilee released last June as one of the years leading, critically acclaimed albums. The album stole spots on Best Of lists for 2021 from Rolling Stone, People Magazine, Pitchfork, Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, NPR, Wall Street Journal, The Ringer, SPIN, Esquire, Vulture, The AV Club, Paste, Cosmopolitan, UPROXX, Consequence of Sound, Slant and Hypebeast. The album gained so much attention that it was even voted the #1 album of the year on NPR’s Listener’s Poll and #1 on UPROXX’s Critics Poll.

If that wasn’t enough success for one year, Zauner, too, published her New York Times Best Seller, Crying in H Mart, which is now being reworked for MGM’s Orion Pictures. The book is a moving memoir that captures Zauner’s experiences growing up Korean American, the struggles she went through with the death of her mother and how she navigated discovering her own identity.

About Michelle Zauner

The Korean American musician and author Michelle Zauner is renowned for her sonic demeanor. Born in Seoul, South Korea, Zauner grew up in Eugene, Oregon for most of her adolescence. Zauner took to music instantly, beginning to learn to play the piano at 5, later moving to the guitar at age 15. Her mother’s passing in 2014 lead to her starting Japanese Breakfast. She tells Teen Vogue, “I moved back to Oregon to care for her, and I kind of put the band on indefinite hiatus. Unfortunately, she passed away, and while I was in Oregon, helping take care of the house and being a support system for my dad, the only way that I could have something for myself was if I made my own record. So I kind of carved out some time to do that.” Japanese Breakfast’s debut came in 2016 with the hit album Psychopomp. Through the album, Zauner revealed the intense period that followed her mother’s death. Zauner’s unique perspective amongst mainstream pop music sets her apart from other artists, and she’s one you’ll want to take a listen to.

Saw Himself – Power Ballads

SAM HIMSELF FONDUE WESTERN’S INDIE ROCKER SHARES DEBUT ALBUM POWER BALLADS

NEW SINGLE “THE MISSING” IS OUT TODAY

WATCH “CRY”

On the heels of his breakout year, Swiss indie rocker Sam Himself – New Yorker by choice,  Fondue Western baritone by trade – prepares to release his debut album, Power Ballads (October 8th). The Brooklyn-based songwriter, performer, and multi-instrumentalist has been sounding the bell for his first LP with a number of singles, most recently “La Paz” and “What Its Worth” which premiered via Under The Radar Magazine and was picked up by KCRWs Morning Becomes Eclectic and KEXPs The Morning Show, among others: as of September 2021, three out of four album singles remain on public and commercial rotation in Germany, France, Switzerland and elsewhere in Europe and the US.

Sam Himself’s full-length debut follows last year’s acclaimed EP Slow Drugs, the artist’s third, which – in addition to the international press, radio airplay, numerous DSP editorial features, and critical praise for the accompanying music videos – earned him the Swiss National Broadcasting Service’s Best Talent Award in 2020 and, in early 2021, a nomination for a Swiss Music Award, the most prestigious national prize of its kind in Sam’s home country.

Power Ballads marks the latest collaboration between Sam and his longtime producer, mixing engineer, and Second Beatle’ Daniel Schlett (The War On Drugs; Iggy Pop), as well as mastering legend Greg Calbi (Bruce Springsteen; David Bowie).

Early last year, Switzerland’s King of Tears Sam Himself was in Europe kicking off his spring tour when the pandemic foiled all live music plans – and Sam’s planned return to Brooklyn, NY, his chosen home of the past decade. Dangerously low on socks, musical equipment, and any real sense of when he’d be able to get back to the United States, Sam ended up staying in his native Switzerland for the remainder of 2020. The singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, exiled at home, spent those months in limbo writing and recording what would become his debut album, Power Balladswherever he could (including the attic of his mom’s house). When he made it back to New York in early 2021, Sam (after a period of self-quarantine) went straight to producer Daniel Schlett’s Strange Weather Studio in Brooklyn to finalize his new material, building on the recordings he had originally prepared as demos for his album.

Two songs on Power Ballads once again feature Sam’s Slow Drugs bandmates Josh Werner (bass – Ghostface Killah; CocoRosie) and Parker Kindred (drums – Jeff Buckley; Elliott Smith), among them the LP’s focus track The Missing. The work of Benjamin Noti (guitar – Steff La Cheffe) and Georg Dillier (bass – Anna Rossinelli), both members of Sam’s touring band, can also be heard on several tracks.

Beyond their contributions, however, Sam plays most of the instruments on Power Ballads himself, with producer Schlett adding sounds, textures and of course his singular mixing style (as heard recently e.g. on Iggy Pop’s cover of The Velvet Underground’s European Son). This reduced lineup, a consequence of the new practical realities of the pandemic, imbues Power Ballads with a sense of intimacy and artistic autonomy. Synths and programmed drums form the core of most of the album’s by turns minimalist and grand arrangements, while Sam’s signature baritone voice quite literally reaches new heights. Over the course of ten tracks, the artist grapples with the sources and limits of personal power – how much of it is taken for granted; what remains once it’s stripped away – unflinchingly honest and defiantly optimistic on his most vulnerable, most confident work to date.

Sam Himself is set to tour in support of his debut album well into the spring of next year, with some 30+ European dates in Switzerland, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, and beyond (US-dates in planning).

OOMPA – UNBOTHERED

Rising Rapper Oompa Evolves on New Album “UNBOTHERED”- LISTEN

“Oompa delivers a dizzying display of talent” – Consequence of Sound

“one of Bostons most successful rappers”- NPR

“Oompa has emerged from her apocalyptic meditation looking fly as hell but highly dangerous” – Vanyaland

“breaking conventional boundaries that have been placed on Female Rappers” – The Doe

Today, critically acclaimed rapper and spoken word poet Oompa has released her long-awaited, third album, “UNBOTHERED”. The “subtle force in Bostons music scene” (DigBoston) has been catching attention not only for her signature beat riding flow but for her incredibly honest and relatable storytelling. The album marks a new era, both sonically and personally, for the “visionary” artist (Performer Mag) with a buoyant production style and free-styled verses. “UNBOTHERED” delves into the timely sentiments of personal reflection and healing after a period of global and spiritual turmoil, where sadness and death seem so prominent.

 

With her debut album “November 3rd”(2016) and highly revered follow-up “Cleo”(2019) exploring the depths of loss, pain, and overcoming, “UNBOTHERED” finds Oompa in a new-found state of peace. The album unfurls Oompa’s journey of self-discovery and learning that joy is possible, despite the struggles within and around us. Through vulnerable lyricism, Oompa paints a vivid and honest picture of the duality of personal growth, “I wanted to teach myself that healing is slow and non-performative”. On her new record, Oompa is choosing to keep what she refers to as the “ugly parts” private, instead, inviting her listener to enjoy the artifacts.

 

Sonically, “UNBOTHERED” explores an intricate spectrum of sounds and moods that progress from the more somber, gospel-inspired opener “AMEN” (feat. Benji) to lighter, quirkier bops in the latter half, including the project’s infectious first single “GO” (ft. Dan DeCristofaro). That freedom of expression helped bring to life an album brimming with gems including the hard-hitting “LEBRON” and New Orleans bounce-inspired “OUTTA PATIENCE”. Both of which left a major impression with the likes of Consequence of SoundThe Ebro Show on Apple MusicDef Jam’s Double Elvis PodcastOnes to Watch, and EARMILK. Accompanying the single roll-out, was a series of ten, playful visuals aesthetically inspired by the unconventional love story told in the Melina Matsoukas film, “Queen and Slim

When reflecting on the journey to “UNBOTHERED”. Oompa mused “Over the course of my eventful life I went from knowing there had to be something I was brought into this world to do, to believing that Im here to be. I went from processing my life in mourning to accepting it and promising myself joy each day. The work seems not to be to find out what you were put on the Earth to do, but a reason to stay”

Boston fans will be able to experience songs from the album live, at the “UNBOTHERED” Album Release Show at the Paradise Rock Club on October 8th. Purchase tickets to the “UNBOTHERED” Album Release Show HERE
