Fousheé Signs with RCA Records

Today, genre bending singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Fousheé announces she has signed with RCA Records. After garnering attention from the likes of SZA, Noname and more, and rising up the charts with her hit single “Deep End,” Fousheé first shared the news with her growing fanbase via Instagram. Click HERE to see her billboard announcement in Los Angeles.

On the signing, Chairman and CEO of RCA Records, Peter Edge says: “Fousheé is one of the brightest new voices with a clear creative vision and we are thrilled to welcome her to the RCA family. We look forward to helping her amplify her vision and reach new milestones together.”

Fousheé says: “I went with RCA because we speak the same music language. So many of who I’d consider to be the greats passed through there so I feel like I’m in good hands and it was important for me to still have creative control and a fair deal. I’m looking forward to pushing myself creatively. I want to create the soundtrack of this generation. “

Fousheé emerged this summer with the release of her track “Deep End” which garnered critical attention from the likes of FADER, OkayPlayer, Pigeons & Planes, 2DopeBoyz and more. Most recently Noisey included the track on their “Best R&B Songs of Summer 2020” list describing,”…a haunting voice…nestled comfortably on the production…At a time when so many of us were speechless [following George Floyd’s death], Fousheé found the words we wanted to say.”

Since then, the track has taken off hitting major milestones including reaching #5 on the Spotify Global Viral 50 chart, landing in Spotify’s Today’s Top Hits, Pop Rising, Hot Rhythmic playlists and Top Global 200 (sitting at #73), as well as #1 on the Global Shazam chart. The track has been streamed over 30 million times worldwide and currently sits at #1 on Apple Music’s Alt R&B playlist.

Internationally the track has made waves as well reaching Top 5 on the Top Daily Spotify charts in various Eastern European markets including #1 in Russia.

Fans first heard Fousheé’s pristine vocals on Sleepy Hallow’s “Deep End Freestyle” track, but she was not named as the vocalist. After the track took off, her mother and sister inspired her to come forward in a TikTok video, which now has over 6 million views and fans called for her to release a full version which she released in July along with the Blaxploitation film inspired visual directed by Zachary Sulak.

Check out the billboard announcing her signing, listen/watch “Deep End” and keep an eye out for more on Fousheé coming soon.

About Fousheé:

Born and raised in New Jersey, Fousheé  grew up with music in the forefront her entire life. Her mother, who hails from Jamaica, got her start in music as the drummer for a female reggae band named PEP before moving to America and starting a family. During her early childhood, Fousheé was exposed to a variety of different sounds from her mother’s record collection including Bob Marley, Toni Braxton and Etta James who she now counts as influences along with artists she personally gravitated to over the years like Frank Ocean.

Writing her first song at age six and performing with different girl groups created with childhood friends throughout her formative years, Fousheé  always knew that she wanted to pursue a career in music seriously. Yet, she found herself following in the normal footsteps of a teenager and enrolling in college, while still working on music and performing at local café’s on the side. It wasn’t until she and her mom were involved serious car accident that forced her to drop out and help her mom recover from injuries that she fully realized how important her dreams were and that was the turning point.

After living in NYC and experiencing the music scene there, she set her sights on LA where she was embraced by the music community of creators and began to pursue her dream, honing her craft and learning to play the guitar most recently. Fast forward to 2020, little did Fousheé  know that her voice would become streamed by millions as the hook on Sleepy Hallow’s viral track “Deep End (Freestyle),” influencing her to reveal her identity as the vocalist in a TikTok video that now has nearly 6 million views. With a clear creative vision and the release of her own full version of “Deep End,” Fousheé  is ready to show the world who she is.

Anna Sofia – Either Way

On the song Anna Sofia said: “I wrote this song as a note to someone I really care for. They have been struggling with body image issues and have always been very self-conscious. I wanted to find a way to really get through to them and let them know how I feel about them -to let them know that I love them no matter what they look like.”

In addition, this release is the first time Sofia and her producer Jeff Hazin were able to work with Jeff Kleinman (Frank Ocean, FKA Twigs, Beyoncé). On working with Hazin Sofia said: “Working with Jeff Kleinman was huge for Jeff Hazin and I. Jeff K was a super amazing person to work with and it was pretty crazy to even get the chance to be in a studio with him. He has worked with some of my favorite artists from Frank Ocean to Beyoncé, so to be able to work with someone that I look up to is so unreal to me and I’m so thankful for the opportunity.”

The song adds to the accolades Anna Sofia received from her debut SelfAware Bitch EP which received critical acclaim from Ones To Watch, Affinity Magazine, That Buzzing Sound and more and accumulated over 3 million cumulative streams. In addition, she released the official music video for the song’s title track “Self Aware Bitch” which shows Anna tackling dodgeball try-outs and school drama with a twist ending. The project was primarily produced by rising producer Jeff Hazin with Grammy® nominated producer Frank Dukes (Taylor Swift, The Weeknd, Post Malone) lending his talents to the song “Self Aware Bitch.” A triad of successful singles set the stage for the six-song EP. On the heels of “Meaner Girl” and “I Try,” she closed out 2019 with the buzzing “No Fun.” Streamed nearly half-a-million times on Spotify, OnesToWatch claimed, “The charming single is a pleasant introducer to her forthcoming EP, Self Aware Bitch” and dubbed it “an impactful introverted anthem.”

Contagiously confident and irresistibly melodic, Anna Sofia asserts herself as a powerful presence in 2020. 16-year-old Toronto singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist ANNA SOFIA threads together narrative pop with the scope of a classic nineties teen flick and the unpredictability of 21st century genre-bending. Through a pure perspective only an insider could possess, Anna Sofia chronicles these moments and so much more in her music. Streamed over 3 million times independently as of 2019 and acclaimed by Ones To Watch, Lyrical Lemonade, and Complex who dubbed her, “a prodigious new talent,” she places listeners in the front row of her world on the introductory 2020 EP, Self Aware Bitch [Electric Feel/Republic Records], and her forthcoming full-length debut.

Peter Manos Debut EP

Peter Manos’ debut EP – Do You Turn Red? – will be released by Capitol Records on June 10. The set will include his new single, “Tennessee,” and five other tracks he recently recorded in his L.A. home studio, plus Manos’ 2017 debut single, “In My Head.” View the trailer for Do You Turn Red? HERE. See below for track listing. Fans who pre-order the digital EP will instantly receive “Tennessee.” Do You Turn Red? is also available for pre-order in CD, cassette and opaque blue vinyl editions. The New York Times said, “Peter Manos is from Texas,but ‘Tennessee’ is no country song. It’s an electronic lament, Auto-Tuned and steeped in James Blake and Frank Ocean; it also hints at the Beatles’ chromatic chord progressions…even as programmed arpeggios swell to support him, he’s left uncomprehending and alone, pure male angst.” Idolator observed, “this is the kind of song that casts an uneasy spell on the listener – commanding a spot on any respectable late-night playlist.” Variance praised the “tender yet moody cut.”

Released earlier this month, “Tennessee” has already amassed nearly one million combined streams. View Do You Turn Red? is both a guidepost pointing toward what may come and a snapshot of this moment. Here is Manos at the front of his career, full of ideas, and all of them tangibly intimate. Despite joining Capitol in 2019, and relocating from the outskirts of Dallas to the heart of Los Angeles, Manos still makes music in a vacuum of sorts. He works almost exclusively solo out of his downtown apartment, in a bedroom-turned- recording-den. Manos has a knack for carving out his own space within something familiar, as these songs make clear. His taste dovetails perfectly with his skills as a one-stop shop singer, songwriter, guitarist, pianist, and producer. There’s the slyly sexy groove topped by his delicate falsetto on “You Don’t Know Me.” There’s the hypnotic cascade of guitar and odd samples that underpin “Zach’s Ballad.” And the way that “At Night” starts as a solitary psych-soul excursion but ends in a hail of live drums and ghostly oohs. “Do You Turn Red?” arrives after five songs of blue mood like a sudden rush of blood. It plays like a confession and feels as raw. Taken with his lyrics – equal parts diaristic share and poetic scrawl – it all feels deeply personal. “If it feels like looking in on something private, it is,” says Manos. “Growing up, no one knew I was playing music. I did sports, went to parties, and had great friends, but it was a secret.”

Manos wound up at Nashville’s Belmont University with the goal of studying music until music allowed him to drop out. That happened during his second year, when over a couple days in the moments between classes and coursework, Manos made “In My Head” in his dorm room – the same fully realized version that appears on Do You Turn Red? A buddy who helped him record warned him, “Remember, people’s first songs don’t usually do anything.” Yet “In My Head” found its way onto numerous playlists, from Spotify’s Pop Rising all the way to Today’s Top Hits.

Combined global streams of the track now top 300 million. Hailing “In My Head” as a “Song You Need to Know,” Rolling Stone observed, “In aworld largely ruled by speedy trap tempos, ‘In My Head’ proves that ballads can still surprise.” Ones To Watch praised “You Don’t Know Me,” one of Manos’ follow-up tracks, as “truly breathtaking.” Manos produced the EP’s six new tracks with Sam Ricci (SZA, Kendrick Lamar). Do You Turn Red? was mixed by Jeff Ellis (Frank Ocean) and mastered by Dale Becker (Khalid). “There’s a lot of emotion and thought in these songs,” says Manos. “I’m completely obsessive about making music and getting it right — having every piece sound exactly the way I want it.”

LEWIS CAPALDI PREMIERES “FADE (LIVE)” VIDEO TODAY

DEBUT EP BLOOM OUT NOW ON CAPITOL RECORDS ­­

Capaldi To Join Milky Chance On January 2018 North American Tour

Scottish artist Lewis Capaldi premieres the video for “Fade (Live)” today- watch it HERE.  The video was directed by Alexandra Gavillet and the track is from Capaldi’s debut EP Bloom out now on Capitol Records and available for download and streaming HERE.   Capaldi co-wrote “Fade” with GRAMMY award winner Malay (Frank Ocean, Sam Smith, Zayn Malik), who also produced it.

“Fade is probably the proudest I’ve ever been about a song I’ve written, it came together so naturally over the course of two days in New York and the fact that I got to write it and have it produced by Malay who’s someone I’ve been a big fan of for a long time was such an honour,” says Capaldi. We filmed the live video for the track in a studio in London a month or so ago and I’m still so pleased with how it turned out, visuals were never really something I considered when I started making music but over the last year it’s something I’ve been becoming so much more interested in! The video was directed by Alexandra Gavillet who’s fucking amazing, I’m still not really comfortable being in front of a camera but she was great in helping me feel a bit more at ease with everything. I honestly think it looks class, she smashed it!”

“Fade” racked up over one million streams in the first week alone and is now approaching four million streams.  Capaldi’s previous track “Lost On You,” was included in Spotify’s New Music Friday in over 20 countries, while his debut “Bruises,” held the No. 1 spot on the playlist and has amassed over 35 million total streams globally.  A stripped-down ballad that looks back on a failed relationship, “Bruises” showcases Capaldi’s nimble vocal ability, as he effortlessly slips between smooth baritone, gravelly mid-tone, and haunting falsetto with pinpoint accuracy.

Hailing from the small town of Bathgate, outside of Glasgow, Capaldi sold out two headlining shows at Glasgow’s famed King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut and embarked on his first UK headling tour, which sold out in minutes, before any of his music was officially released. He will tour Europe this fall with Rag’n’Bone Man, followed by his second UK sold out headlining tour in December.  Capaldi will also tour the U.S. and Canada with Milky Chance in January. See below for all tour dates.

The track-listing for the Bloom EP is as follows:

1 Fade

2 Bruises

3 Mercy

4 Lost On You

What critics are saying about Lewis Capaldi:

“Lewis Capaldi has the kind of deep, textured voice that you could listen to for hours. He finds expressive rough edges, then smooths them out into the sweetest of notes…Capaldi’s talent is tugging at heartstrings – or rather, pulling at them with all his vocal might.”

-Time

“Lewis Capaldi has captivated listeners with his soulful voice…”

– Billboard

“Lewis Capaldi is generating some huge buzz with ‘Fade.’ Produced by Malay (Frank Ocean’s long-time collaborator), the emotional ballad showcases the 20-year-old Scot’s powerful pipes and knack for insightful lyrics. It goes without saying that he’s One To Watch.”

– Idolator

“Showcasing his stunning vocals and songwriting ability, the track is breathtakingly beautiful and an exciting glimpse of what’s to come.”

– Wonderland

“The vocal range of the guy is enough to impress anybody, and, as we see/hear here, all Lewis needs to have you in the palm of his hand is a simple piano playing throughout.”

– hillydilly

“Glasgow singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi has one of the most remarkable, tender voicesI’ve heard in a long time.”

– Independent

“(Lewis Capaldi) seems able to find the beauty in the everyday, to translate deeply personal experiences into something universal.”

– Clash

“A Lewis Capaldi show is undoubtedly a rollercoaster of emotions everyone must experience… If you haven’t already listened to (his new track) ‘Fade,’ what have you been doing?”

– tmrw

TYLER JACOB

East coast born and bred, Tyler Jacob is a singer/songwriter who got his start in the industry after being discovered singing on the trains of NYC.

At the age of 5 years old, Tyler Jacob started singing and performing in school plays. Tyler says that “I’ve always wanted to sing. It was a natural thing for me.” His family recalls little Tyler putting on shows in the family living room.

“I don’t come from a family of singers. I’m the only one.” 

But it wasn’t until his freshmen year in high school did he realize others thought he had a gift, when he was accidentally placed in a choir class. “The choir teacher asked me to sing, so she could classify my voice.” The rest is history. After the choir teacher heard Tyler’s voice, she had him transferred to Creative Arts High School (CAHS) in Camden, New Jersey.

Tyler’s passion to sing, write and perform his own music, in English and Spanish, pushed him after he graduated from CAHS to move to the big Apple to pursue his singing career. Since then he has gone on to win numerous talent shows , performed on many stages across the US, opened up for Grammy Award winner, Brandy Norwood, and logged studio time with Carvin & Ivan (Chris Brown, Musiq Soulchild, Mario), and Andrea Martin (Leona Lewis, Monica, Mary J. Blige).  

Tyler credits artists like Brandy, Eryka Badu, Lauryn Hill, Aaliyah, Jon B, Marc Anthony, Tank, Maxwell, as some of his influences.

A stripped-down ballad that looks back on a failed relationship, “Bruises” showcases Capaldi’s nimble vocal ability, as he effortlessly slips between smooth baritone, gravelly mid-tone, and haunting falsetto with pinpoint accuracy. 

 

“I picked the guitar up at nine, started writing songs at eleven and then was gigging from 12 onwards. I mean, they were awful songs, but it was fun. I was always trying to get in places, playing at pubs. I’d show up and try and blag my way in. I’d have to hide in the toilets and then jump out and do my set as quickly as possible before anyone knew there was a 12-year-old in the pub,” says Capaldi, 20, who was recently nominated for a Breakthrough Artist of the Year Award at the Scottish Music Awards. From then on in Lewis devoted every spare moment he had to writing and performing. Playing gigs in Glasgow, Edinburgh and anywhere he could find a receptive audience, he was constantly working on songs, finding his voice as a songwriter and honing his craft with unwavering dedication. All the while developing the rough-around-the-edges vocals that would make those songs soar.
