RENEÉ RAPP ANNOUNCES FIRST-EVER TOUR

RENEÉ RAPP ANNOUNCES FIRST-EVER HEADLINING TOUR KICKING OFF DECEMBER 6TH IN LOS ANGELES

  • EMOTIONAL DEBUT EP EVERYTHING TO EVERYONE OUT NOW – LISTEN HERE

Reneé Rapp announces first-ever headlining tour in support of debut EP, Everything to Everyone. Kicking off on December 6th in Los Angeles, this tour will be an opportunity for fans to experience the emotional project in an intimate setting that highlights Rapp’s raw vocal talent. Tickets go on sale to the public Friday, November 18th at 10 AM local time. More information can be found HERE.

EVERYTHING TO EVERYONE TOUR DATES:

December 6th   Los Angeles, CA   Troubadour

December 13th  New York, NY      Bowery Electric

December 15th  Boston, MA          Sonia’s

December 18th  Atlanta, GA          Vinyl

Today’s announcement arrives on the heels of Reneé’s debut EP Everything To Everyone, an emotional 7-track project which highlights her vocal prowess and versatility as she shifts from soaring emotional ballads to polished pop anthems. The stripped-back title track and EP opener explores Rapp’s desire to show up for the important people in her life. Next up is the multi-hyphenate’s breakout single “In the Kitchen,” which reflects on a doomed relationship, and a brand new track titled “Colorado” that expresses her desire to leave Los Angeles behind. It’s the kind of unfiltered anthem that made her most recent release, “Don’t Tell My Mom,” so gut-wrenching. On the track, Rapp details her tumultuous, tight knit relationship with her mother. Don’t tell my mom, I’m fallin’ apart,” she belts over minimal synths. “She hurts when I hurt, my scars are her scars.” The EP is rounded out by the songs “What Can I Do,” “Too Well,” and “Moon,” each of which showcases a slightly different shade of Rapp’s musical palate. It’s the kind of collection with a song for every mood or emotional state. 

The EP follows the singles “Don’t Tell My Mom,” “In the Kitchen,” and “Tattoos,” which have amassed more than 22 million combined streams. Throughout her career, Rapp has displayed a knack for captivating audiences with vibrant performances and unbridled energy. Outside of music, she stars in the hit HBO Max series The Sex Lives of College Girls, which has its season 2 premiere next week. It’s a role that calls for brilliant comedic timing and dramatic prowess, both of which the newcomer has in spades. With Everything to Everyone, Rapp underlines the breadth and depth of her talent, veering from soaring ballads to uptempo pop anthems without missing a beat. 

ABOUT RENEÉ RAPP:

Reneé Rapp knew she was born to perform ever since she was a child. Even in her earliest memories, her love of music was always present. “I couldn’t sit still in the car unless there was music,” she says. “Otherwise, I would cry the entire time.” The North Carolina native began harnessing her natural creativity by writing and recording songs when she was just a teenager. Eventually, her career took off when she landed the coveted role of Regina George in the Tony-nominated Mean Girls musical on Broadway. Shortly after, she found widespread recognition and praise—from the likes of W, Harper’s Bazaar, and The Hollywood Report for her performance as “Leighton” on the HBO Max series “The Sex Lives of College Girls” written by Mindy Kaling. Now, more empowered than ever, Rapp turns her attention back to music, where sharing threadbare insecurities on “Tattoos” is just the beginning. “I was called ‘crazy’ a lot growing up because I didn’t know what was going on with me,” she says. “As I got older and started going to therapy, I reclaimed the word in a way that feels good to me.” In this song and in the rest of her music to come Rapp leans into a uniquely bold showcase of vulnerability to connect with her ever-growing fandom. Eager to continue to share her emotions with the world, Reneé has much more music on the way under her recent signing to Interscope Records

Pirelli – Lamborghini Urus Performante

THE FIRST PIRELLI P ZERO TROFEO R FOR SUVs IS BORN WITH A RECORD FOR THE LAMBORGHINI URUS PERFORMANTE

The latest custom tire for the newest Lamborghini joins the six tires already produced by Pirelli for the Urus

The Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R has set a new benchmark, conquering the legendary Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on the Lamborghini Urus Performante in record time for the category. This same tire was chosen by Lamborghini as the original equipment for the newest version of its super SUV.

From the start, the Urus was already homologated with six variants of Pirelli tires: P Zero tires in 21, 22, and 23 inches, designed to ensure high performance on the road; 22-inch P Zero Corsa covers for fun on the track; as well as 21-inch Scorpion Zero All Season and 22-inch Scorpion Winter equipment to drive on any terrain and in low temperatures. Joining them is now the 22-inch P Zero Trofeo R: the most performance-oriented Pirelli tire of all, specifically intended for the track but also approved for the road.

It marks the very first time that Pirelli has adapted a P Zero Trofeo R for the needs of an SUV: this latest evolution tire for the Lamborghini Urus Performante is able to offer high performance in a wider range of conditions and temperatures than the standard P Zero Trofeo R. The new tire is also capable of conquering some of the most famous roads in motorsport, such as the epic Pikes Peak Hill Climb course in Colorado. With multiple hill climb champion and Pirelli test driver Simone Faggioli behind the wheel, the Performante recorded a time of 10m32.064s: beating the previous class record of 10m49.902s, set in 2018.

Like all Lamborghini tires, this particular P Zero Trofeo R was born out of the close collaboration between Pirelli and Lamborghini, which dates back to 1963. The technological partnership that binds the two companies is based on the ‘Perfect Fit’ philosophy: a strategy through which Pirelli develops bespoke tires for each car made by the Premium and Prestige manufacturers it collaborates with. All Lamborghinis can be fitted with Pirelli tires created for the specific features of each model, both as original equipment and on the aftermarket. Pirelli and Lamborghini also have a shared history in competition that goes back more than 30 years: from the debut of the Scorpion for the LM002 that contested the Paris-Dakar Rally in 1988, to the current GT World Challenge Europe: exclusively supplied by Pirelli with Lamborghini among the leading teams.

DARK WEB × MARY JANE & BLACK CAT

Face it, readers, you just hit the double jackpot! Mary Jane and Black Cat, two of the greatest loves of Peter Parker’s life, grab the spotlight in an explosive new limited series this December! The five-issue saga will tie directly into the upcoming Spider-Man/X-Men/Venom crossover, DARK WEB, and be written by Jed MacKay. After taking the character of Black Cat on a whirlwind of adventures in recent years in back-to-back solo series and the current Iron Cat limited series, the hit writer will now continue his transformative work on Marvel’s premier super thief, and this time, he’s taken MJ along for the ride! MacKay will be joined by artist Vincenzo Carratù, an up-and-coming talent making his exciting Marvel Comics debut! 

Earlier this year, MJ and Felicia joined forces to save Peter in MacKay’s Mary Jane & Black Cat: Beyond #1, an acclaimed one-shot that went on to receive a second printing. With the way Peter’s relationship stands with them in the current run of Amazing Spider-Man, the developments in this series are sure to be even crazier! Set against the twisted backdrop of DARK WEB, Mary Jane Watson and Felicia Hardy find themselves thrown into one another’s paths and then into the demonic dimension of LIMBO! But something has changed with MJ, and she’s not the only one keeping secrets – Felicia’s got a guilty conscience, and it’s playing havoc with their escape plan!

“I’ve kind of lost track of how many lives Felicia has left at this point, but she keeps coming back- and this time she’s brought a friend!” MacKay said. “Getting back to Mary Jane and Black Cat after their one-shot last year has been a delight—and seeing how they’ve been catching up on all the drama that’s happened since then has been, well, catnip.”

The team-up series Marvel fans have been waiting for is here! Check out the cover below by J. Scott Campbell, who once again lends his superstar talents to MJ and Black Cat’s saga, and pick up MARY JANE & BLACK CAT #1 when it arrives in December! For more information, visit Marvel.com.

Isaac Ryan Brown celebrates his 7 song ep via 360 MAGAZINE

Spotlight: Issac Ryan Brown

Listen to Vaughn Lowery chat with Issac Ryan Brown on the 360 MAG Apple/Spotify podcast.

Brown announces seven song debut EP Project, WHAT I’M ON, to officially release on July 12 through SSK Records/Universal Distribution

Actor and R&C/pop singer/songwriter Issac Ryan Brown has announced his debut seven song EP project, What I’m On, which will officially release on July 12.  To celebrate his 17th birthday today, his friends and family held an exclusive launch party at his Los Angeles home.  The EP will be released through Steven Machat’s SSK Records, distributed through Universal. 

Machat, the man who executive produced and/or worked with Phil Collins, Leonard Cohen, Peter Gabriel, Bobby Brown New Edition, Ready for the World, Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, Kurupt, Bizzy Bone and Seal with Adamski to name a few, is at the helm of Brown’s EP release which will be available everywhere.

The EP will be a first for Brown, although he has made numerous special appearances as a musical artist throughout his longtime career run. ‘‘Detroit and Motown have greatly influenced the sound and energy of my music.’’

Currently in his fifth season starring as Booker Baxter-Carter on Disney Channel’s “Raven’s Home,” the on-screen son of the series star and exec. producer Raven-Simone. 

Originally from Detroit, Issac Ryan Brown got his great break at the age of six when he dazzled audiences on “America’s Got Talent.” Since then, he has been regularly working in television, film, voiceovers, commercials, and he is becoming a singer. One of the best known is the Raven Series, ‘‘It has been so much fun, and I love everyone there and Ray is like a big sister to me’’ Brown says. They have a song together called ‘Win It.’ Not only Raven Symone is a reference for Brown but also Nick Cannon in his musical career since the rapper’s music inspires him. “I haven’t had any conversations with him, but I look up to him as a pop culture icon for the black community. ”

His voiceover credits include Puppy Dog Pals, Bubble Guppies, Miles from Tomorrowland, and The Stinky & Dirty Show. He enjoys volunteering at the Salvation Army in his additional time.

Additionally, Brown loves reading and coming from a poor reading town has created a small foundation to put books in children’s backpacks. ”Detroit is technically illiterate…There’s a link to my Instagram bio where you can go, and you can sign up to get your backpacks”. DETROIT stand up!! Returning this year for Brown’s annual FREE backpack giveaway, and this will be the biggest one yet. According to him ‘‘Come out and support several of Detroit’s local small businesses. Together we can continue to grow our community!’’ Click HERE to get more info about it.

In real life, Brown is quickly building an impactful future as an artist far beyond his renown as a popular young TV star – a journey which began at age six when he wowed the judges, including Howie Mandel (who called him a “superstar”) auditioning for “America’s Got Talent” with a spirited song and dance of “I Want You Back,” embodying Brown’s musical hero Michael Jackson. 

During the pandemic lockdown, with “Raven’s Home” on indefinite hiatus, Brown got together with some pals from his native Detroit, headed down to Atlanta and recorded a few songs and shot some videos. In recent months, he’s been spending his time on weekends in the studio working on his upcoming debut EP with beatmakers Hollywood, K Young and Aroc and engineer and vocal producer C Minor. His songs include “Inch Away,” “What I’m On,” “Feel Like,” “You Do,” “Easy” and “On Me.”  

“The EP captures my musical spirit of doing many things and is a reminder to people that I love to sing,” Brown says. “It’s great to have the opportunity to express all the things I love to do musically. The songs reflect my growth and how far I’ve come as an artist, with most of the lyrics based on personal experiences I’ve been through and things that I feel will matter to me and others as well. I’m excited to share this part of me and make music an equally important part of my future in entertainment.”  

Believing strongly in giving back, Brown has a passion for charitable cause and inspiring young people to overcome obstacles and pursue their dreams just as he has done. Concerned that many  inner city kids growing up in his area of Detroit aren’t learning to read, he started a foundation called the “I Can” Literacy Foundation, whose mission is to encourage young people to set and achieve goals based on “I Can ____” sentences, like “I can read,” “I can run,” “I can fly,” or anything they set their minds to. 

In 2020, Brown and his family started a backpack drive in Detroit, where they would fill backpacks full of books targeted to children – including novels, illustrated storybooks and beloved classics. This year, they partnered with a local school to conduct the drive and giveaways on a larger scale. 

In between work commitments, Brown often performs and/or speaks at schools in Detroit and L.A., giving away backpacks, signing autographs and encouraging kids to believe anything is possible for their lives if they commit and work hard. “I let them know that, like me, you don’t know what you can achieve until you do it,” he says. “I came up in the same situation as they are, but always felt like I had the capacity to do bigger things in my life. I tell them wherever you live, wherever you are in life, great things are possible – and I’m living proof of that.”

REEBOK ×  KANGHYUK 

Today Reebok and KANGHYUK announce the latest drop in their ongoing collaboration. The two brands have teamed up to debut their combined take on a new silhouette from Reebok – The Premier Road Modern Mid.

Anne Wilson with 2 K-LOVE awards.

ANNE WILSON – MY JESUS

Capitol CMG artist and songwriter, Anne Wilson, has been taking the music world by storm with the release of her debut album, My Jesus, this Spring. This past Friday, June 3rd, Anne took home 2 K-LOVE Fan Awards – Female Artist of the Year and Breakout Single of the Year for her hit song, “My Jesus.”

“I grew up listening to Christian radio and K-LOVE, so winning a breakout single is just so surreal,” says Wilson. “I am so grateful for how Christian music impacts so many people for the Kingdom. So thankful. I am so undone by God’s faithfulness. Winning female artist of the year means so much to me. What an honor! So grateful.”

The K-LOVE Fan Awards is the home of the only fan-voted awards show in Christian entertainment. The Awards bring together the biggest names in Christain music, films, sports, books, and more, geared to create a fan experience that celebrates and promotes artists, athletes, authors, and entertainers with excellence that engage and impact popular culture. 

At release, Anne’s debut album, My Jesus, hit the #1 spot on multiple charts including Billboard’s Top Christian & Gospel Albums, Billboard’s Top 200 Christian & Gospel, Billboard’s Top Albums, and Apple Music (Christian & Gospel Category.) The album’s title track, “My Jesus,” earned Anne her first RIAA Gold Certification and a 2022 Billboard Music Award nomination for “Top Christian Song.” The album also made recent CCMG history, scoring the biggest debut week in over 15 years by a Capitol Christian Music Group-signed new artist.

Singer/songwriter Anne Wilson knows the healing power of music firsthand. The lyrics of Hillsong Worship’s “What A Beautiful Name” became a lifeline for the Lexington, Kentucky native after her brother was tragically killed in a car accident at the age of 23. Although she spent much of her childhood behind a piano, Wilson sang in front of an audience for the first time at her brother’s funeral. It was at that moment that she realized what she was born to do. A video of her moving performance organically circulated, eventually landing her a record deal. With a mesmerizing voice and a visible hunger for Jesus, the 20-year-old relies on personal journal entries and time spent in nature for songwriting inspiration. 

Wilson’s introductory track, “My Jesus”—which she co-wrote with Jeff Pardo and Matthew West—is a warm invitation to experience her Savior in the same intimate way she knows Him. She released a debut three-track single—also titled My Jesus—for Capitol Christian Music Group in early 2021 and followed it up with a live EP, My Jesus (Live in Nashville). Her song, “My Jesus,” charted on the Spotify Viral 50, Shazam Top 200, and Rolling Stone Top 25 Trending charts. Her story was also featured in the Religion News Service and The Washington Post. She made her Opry debut on the iconic stage in September 2021. Wilson was featured in Billboard Magazine as the October 2021 Chart Breaker artist.

Addison Grace – “I Wanna Be A Boy”

Musician and TikTok phenomenon Addison Grace released their single, “I Wanna Be A Boy,” that discusses their own intimate tour with gender. Throughout writing the song and exploring what gender truly meant to them, Addison was able to discover their pronouns – he/they – and come out as nonbinary. Addison sings, “I guess I wanna be a boy,” coming full terms with this sincere and profound message.

Listen to “I Wanna Be A BoyHERE.

Addison pondered with never releasing the song past his own social media, but after posting it online and observing the feedback, he knew that it deserved an appropriate debut. While speaking with B Drop, Addison states, “I initially started writing it when I was questioning a lot of things about myself. I’m very open with how I identify online and I’ve always openly been a queer creator, queer musician, and at that time I was really not understanding how I identified with my gender and how I felt about it, and so it started off as a song about gender roles and how I was jealous of guys and how they got to have certain things I couldn’t have. With time, I realized it was very much me explaining — in song form — that I wasn’t a girl and that I was nonbinary instead.

“A lot of people ended up relating to the song. I had trans men relating to it saying “I’ve always felt like that.” I’ve had trans women being like “I used to deny I was a woman and I wanted to be a boy; I wanted to be “normal” — quote, unquote. I even had my friends who were born female and identify as female feel that way because they felt they were a tomboy and never fit in with the “girlie girls” so to speak.” He continues, “Even though, for me, it’s a song about gender identity and finding myself in that way, I think really at the core — it becomes a song about not understanding yourself and wishing so desperately that you could and it’s a very vulnerable song for that reason.”

The cover art for the piece showcases several images of Addison while they were growing up, at different time periods. He talks about this, saying, “I feel like a lot of my work recently has been about growing up and about those awkward moments in your life, so for this song, I wanted it to be a collage of my face growing up. I didn’t want it to be something someone had drawn. I wanted it to be realistic so I searched through a bunch of scrapbooks and I found pictures of two-year old me, 10-year old me, 15-year old me and a picture of me from last year and we ended up crafting it all together because I’ve always loved the idea of putting photos together and it makes something else. I wanted to put stickers and all that because when you’re finding yourself, it feels like these weird puzzle that don’t fit quite right, so I wanted it to look slightly off… I really love it and it feels really nostalgic to me.”

The journey of coming out as non-binary for Addison was a difficult road and is something that he aims to inspire others with. They strive to empower individuals with the power to live their own lives as genuinely as possible. Through sharing his own journey, Addison nurtures the idea that gender identity is a voyage that they went on and hope that others can embark on as well.

More about Addison Grace

With an outstanding 3.8 million followers on TikTok, almost 400k followers on Instagram and close to 200k YouTube subscribers, Addison Grace become an online sensation through hard work and dedication. He began his journey online with an iPhone 6 and a dream, often encouraging his own audiences to follow their dreams despite their situations. Addison stands as waterproof that anyone can become an artist if they’re dedicated to the craft, stating, “You’re enough and what you’re doing is enough.”

As an activist for the LGBTQIA+ community, upcoming artists and mental health, Addison is known for disclosing his own individual experiences living with ADHD. He makes sure to communicate to his fanbases that “normal” is a made-up concept, and that the truth is very real. They transmit the importance of the truth with “I Wanna Be A Boy,” which you can stream everywhere now.

Purple Disco Machine × Sophie and the Giants – In The Dark

Purple Disco Machine and Sophie and the Giants team up one again for their disco-tech single “In The Dark,” via Casablanca Records. Listen to the brand-new single HERE and watch the music video HERE.

Purple Disco Machine’s “Exotica Deluxe” album releases on Friday, March 4, 2022 – pre-order HERE.

A collaboration between Purple Disco Machine and Sophie’s is a recipe for pure perfection; the combination of funky production with supernatural melody and vocals can’t be matched. Their past partnership on the song “Hypnotized” reached over 350 million streams, gained a variety of Platinum certifications across Europe and hit #9 on the Global Shazam Charts. The track, too, was prosperous in Italy, where it went platinum 5 x. The success of the single led to the duo’s performance at the Power Hits Estate 2020 live from Verona Stadium.

The partnership between both artists produces another captivating, upbeat hit. The melody of the track produces a transcendent, modern aura, which is contrasted against the emotional lyrics of the song. The story that “In The Dark” produces through its lyricism and melody is one that a lot of young individuals could relate to modern day. The song proclaims the message of falling for someone they know they shouldn’t, but nonetheless, the heart wants what the heart wants. The delicate, exquisite vocals paired with deep lyricism makes for an incredible track. Sophie sings, “Pulled me in with your words so sweet, every time I ignored the sign, redemption’s mine on the day I leave, fallin’ for you was my only crime.”

In The Dark” comes after a rather prosperous period of time for Purple Disco Machine, following the issue of the producer’s sophomore album “Exotica,” and the dancefloor complement “Club Exotica.” The inspiration for the studio album stemmed from pop culture and artists of the 80s. The project includes 14 tracks with international phenomena “Hypnotized” with Sophie and the Giants, “Fireworks” feat. Moss Kena & The Knocks, and “Dopamine” feat. Eyelar. The album, to date, collects over 500 million streams.

Purple Disco Machine ranks as the #2 Beatport Artist of All Time, the impact that he has had on the disco/ dance industry is unmatched. Purple Disco Machine has remixed artists such as Dua Lipa, Calvin Harris, Sir Elton John, Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande, Diplo and so many more. Accumulating over 1 billion streams across all his works, he has made his mark and stamped his place in the world of disco production.
