Inhaler x Vevo DSCVR

Inhaler released two brand new videos through Vevo DSCVR on Wednesday for their songs titled “It Won’t Always Be Like This” and “When It Breaks.”

Vevo DSCVR focuses on developing up-and-coming artists through live performances, and they’ve carefully curated a catalog of musicians and bands in their spotlight.

Some of the artists include Billie Eilish, AB6IX and Alfie Templeman, and Vevo DSCVR has helped them reach wider audiences that may not have been exposed to their work yet.

The four members of Inhaler, Elijah Hewson, Robert Keating, Ryan McMahon and Josh Jenkinson, met in high school, bonding over bands like The Stone Roses, Joy Division, The Strokes, Depeche Mode, Interpol, Kings Of Leon and The Cure.

“It Won’t Always Be Like This” was their debut single, and it helped them to more than 25 million streams from a die-hard fan base.

The members explained “When It Breaks” as a song that communicates the anxiousness the entire world feels right now.

“It’s our interpretation of this strange and imperfect world we’ve come to live in,” the band said. “Things are gonna change and we are gonna be there when they do.”

Queen × Adam Lambert

The legacy of Freddie Mercury, the late singer of the band Queen, has been able to live on for the past decade as Adam Lambert took over the vocals of the band.

Following the parting of former stand in singer in 2009, Paul Rodgers, the band was looking for someone who could embody all that Freddie Mercury stood for as well as bring power and strength with their vocals. This happened to be the same year that Adam Lambert auditioned for American Idol, choosing to sing the band’s hit song “Bohemian Rhapsody” for it. 

Lambert, however, did not win the show’s eighth season but instead was second runner up. But it seems he won a greater prize: an opportunity to sing for Queen.

Throughout the season, the original guitarist of the band had become aware of Lambert’s rendition of “Bohemian Rhapsody” and knew he was a top contender. Lambert was then asked to step in and become the lead singer of Queen.

Following this, the band went on tour in 2014 and have held concerts all around the world. Over the last decade, Queen has continued touring, releasing albums, and even debuted a documentary in 2019 entitled The Show Must Go On: The Queen + Adam Lambert Story

Most recently, the band gained their first number one album in the U.K. in 25 years with “Live Around the World” which featured live music and highlights from the last decade of the bands’ tour with Lambert. This is also Lambert’s first ever number one in the U.K.

Queen is no stranger to winning titles and setting records in the music world. Almost 45 years ago did they achieve their first number one album, A Night at the Opera, and the band’s resilience has not wavered.

Amazon hosted a live Q&A on October 14 with Lambert, in correlation to the company’s music streaming service, to give fans a way to get to know the Queen singer a little better and answer some questions fans were curious about.

With Lambert leading the way, and with original guitarist and drummer, Brian May and Roger Taylor, the band has been able to keep Queen’s legacy alive and give fans decades more music to enjoy.

The band has been able to do so by sharing the music the original group wrote and produced, but Brian May says they might release some new music with Lambert. According to the U.K. news outlet The Express, May revealed to them that they “have dabbled” in the studio with some original pieces.

Regardless of old or new music, it is safe to say that the band has been able to withstand the test of time. All generations of fans are able to still feel the emotion behind the lyrics Freddie Mercury sang originally, and the ones Adam Lambert embraces now.

NCVC Launch Music City Bandwidth × Jack Daniel’s 

The Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp, in partnership with Nashville’s Music Venue Alliance, has launched Music City Bandwidth presented by Jack Daniel’s to help independent music venues and Nashville-based musicians survive the pandemic’s economic damage and also provide inspiration for visitors to travel to Music City when it is safe for tourism to return. Music City Bandwidth will host 30 virtual concerts in September and October starting Sept. 14. Fifteen independent Nashville music venues will provide gigs for approximately 120 Nashville-based musicians of diverse genres. The concerts will be streamed around the world at musiccitybandwidth.com. At this time, there will be no live audiences due to physical distancing and crowd size limitations mandated by the city. “We have crafted a unique, Nashville-branded virtual experience to go to a worldwide audience that promotes the Music City brand, the diversity of Nashville musicians and all the iconic independent music venues that are the soul of Music City,” said Butch Spyridon, president and CEO of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. “If these music clubs don’t make it, our Music City brand and music ecosystem will be in great peril.”

Confirmed Artists Include:

Andrew Combs; Brett James; Creature Comfort; Devon Gilfillian; Giovanni Rodriguez & 12 Manos; Jason Eskridge; Kalie Shorr; Marshall Chapman with Tommy Womack & Will Kimbrough; Patrick Sweany; The Last Bandoleros; The Pink Spiders; The Shindellas; The Wild Feathers; Trigger Hippy; Victoria Shaw; and Wooten Brothers.

Show Schedule

Continue to check musiccitybandwidth.com for show schedule.

Shows will air at 7 p.m. CDT on certain dates in September and October. Each venue will host two shows and must book Nashville-based acts representing diverse genres. Participating venues include the following:

  • 3rd and Lindsley
  • DRKMTTR
  • Exit/In
  • Mercy Lounge
  • The 5 Spot
  • The Basement
  • The Basement East
  • The Bluebird Cafe
  • The East Room
  • The End
  • The High Watt
  • The Listening Room
  • Rudy’s Jazz Room
  • Springwater
  • Station Inn

The creative marketing initiative is being paid for by Tennessee CARES Act funds earmarked for destination marketing organizations such as the NCVC to support tourism recovery. These 15 independent music venues have averaged a 90 percent revenue loss since mid-March. The Music Venue Alliance estimates 15 percent of them will permanently close in one month; 38 percent in six weeks; and 13 weeks from now all but one will permanently close without financial assistance. That could result in the loss of 5,600 annual concerts; $5 million paid to 46,000 musicians annually; 389 lost jobs; and more than $2 million in lost city and state taxes annually. The city recently approved $2 million in CARES Act funding for small music venues.

Chris Cobb, president of Music Venue Alliance Nashville, said, “Nashville’s independent music venues have been devastated by the pandemic. We have been closed since March, and even though we have operated frugally and responsibly, have been forced to lay off 90 percent of our employees. We fear many of us will close permanently. We know there are many people rooting for us to survive, and this marketing initiative is one of the first pieces of assistance to finally come through. Thank you to the State and the NCVC for this much-needed shot in the arm. We can’t wait to start booking shows again, supporting our ecosystem, and sharing music with the world from some of Nashville’s most beloved stages!”

“During the global pandemic, the music stopped – for fans, venues and musicians themselves. But Jack is here to help keep the music playing,” said Ed Carias, Jack Daniel’s U.S. brand director. “Music has always been at the heart of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey, and we are excited to support talented artists at these iconic venues in Nashville while celebrating the friendship and fun that makes live music so special.”

Donations to a relief fund for local venues and musicians can be made at musiccitybandwidth.com, where Music City Bandwidth t-shirts will also be available for purchase with proceeds benefiting these venues.

@VisitMusicCity launches Music City Bandwidth presented by @JackDaniels_US, a NEW virtual concert series to benefit Nashville music venues. Get the details & get ready to watch at musiccitybandwidth.com. #KeeptheMusicPlaying #SupportNashvilleStages #KeepIndieLive615

Labrinth Performs Songs From ‘Euphoria’

For the first time since his Emmy nominations, Labrinth performed songs from the score and soundtrack of the hit HBO series “Euphoria.”

Presented by HBO themselves, fans of the show were treated to “forever,” “still don’t know my name,” “when I r.i.p.” and “all for us.”

Including Labrinth’s for Outstanding Music Composition for a Series and Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics, “Euphoria” racked up six nominations. In her most adult-friendly role to date, Zendaya picked up a nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, and we can probably all guess which scene we’ll see when her name is announced as a nominee.

This video is proof that “Euphoria” isn’t leaving gorgeous colors and cinematography behind after the first season. It comes complete with everything but Labrinth wearing “Euphoria” makeup. Rich blues, purples and pinks set us up to be completely lost in the performance the way we were lost in the show.

HBO renewed “Euphoria” for a second season before the first season even ended, but because of production delays, we don’t have a release date yet.

Lovers of the show can still tune in to the 72nd Primetime Emmys on Sept. 20 to cheer for Zendaya, Labrinth and all of the other talented artists and creators responsible for “Euphoria.”

To see the entire performance, you can click right here. You can find “Euphoria” streaming now on HBO Max, and you can listen to the score right here.

5 Benefits of Having Live Entertainment

When it comes to planning parties and events, some people have an aversion to hiring live entertainment. Many people believe live entertainment to be too costly or too much of a headache to plan out. While these are certainly valid complaints on the planning side of live music, there still are a lot of positives associated with having live music at your event. So how can live music improve your event, and is it worth the extra effort it adds to planning your event? Here are five benefits of having live entertainment.

Generate Hype

One of the best benefits of having live entertainment at your party or event is the hype it generates around it. Many people will be excited to see live entertainment, so much so that you’ll likely have extra people at your event that otherwise would not have gone. In addition, those that were already planning on attending now have something to look forward to and get excited about. Having more excited people at your event is great, as it means that the energy will be fantastic, thus making the event even better.

Provide Entertainment

The most obvious benefit of having live entertainment at your event is simply the fact that it provides your guests with some high-quality entertainment. People go to parties and events in order to be entertained, and they want something that will be able to keep them occupied while they’re there. While simply playing music may satisfy some cravings for entertainment, it has nowhere near the same effect that a live performance has. If you’re looking to provide some high-quality entertainment for your guests, then hiring a live performer is the perfect opportunity.

Create a Focal Point

Another great thing that having live entertainment at your party or event does is it creates a focal point for people to gather around. When having an event or party, it’s totally normal for people to peel off and go to different corners of the venue. However, when you have live entertainment people gather around the performer to see what’s happening, creating a focal point in the center of your event. It’s very hard to get people to congregate in one particular area during a party or event, thankfully live entertainment can do just that.

Add to the Theme

An underrated aspect of having live entertainment at your party is its ability to add to the overall theme of the event. If you’re planning something that has a strong theme, live entertainment can make that theme much more believable and immersive. For example, if you were having a St. Patrick’s Day party, looking for Irish dancers to hire or bringing on an Irish band could make your party or event much more on theme. Theme parties are only fun if you can properly pull the theme off, and live entertainment can go a long way in doing that.

Make it Memorable

Many people leave parties and forget nearly everything about them. If nothing memorable or special happens at a party or event, then chances are no one will remember it in the future. Thankfully, live entertainment can be a huge help in this regard, providing your guests with something that they can easily remember. Normal parties can be easily forgotten, but if you have a well-known entertainer performing at your event, then guests likely won’t be forgetting it any time soon.

Stray Kids, The First Take, 360 Magazine

The First Take × Stray Kids

“The First Take,” an original series from The First Take YouTube channel dedicated to filming performances by musicians and singers in a single take, has made a special comeback to present a performance by the popular K-pop group Stray Kids for their 43rd episode. 

Stray Kids, who made their Japanese debut this year, filmed and recorded this episode remotely in Korea, a very first for The First Take. The song performed by Stray Kids, “SLUMP – Japanese ver. – ,” is the ending theme to the animated television series Kami No Tou – Tower Of God. It touches upon the theme of trials and tribulations, inspired by vocalist Han’s personal experiences. 

Bang Chan of Stray Kids commented “We’re very honored to have been selected to perform on the comeback special. I was initially a little nervous when I heard we were to be filmed singing live in one take from start to finish but I really started to enjoy myself as I got into the song. I feel as though this new experience has helped us take another positive step forward. It’s also made us want to work harder than ever at our art and we hope to show our strengths to a great number of people in the future to come. We hope our live performance video on The First Take will give people encouragement and the motivation to uplift themselves.”

360 Magazine reached out to The First Take’s team to learn more about the channel.

In a nutshell, what is The First Take about?

A YouTube channel that began in November 2019. With the concept, “What is ‘Music’? — approaching music with just one take,” the artists record their songs in one take, with high-quality sound and image. Right now, due to the COVID-19 situation, the artists are recording at home and private studios under the title  “The Home Take.” Even in a limited environment, the quality of the contents is maintained.

What inspired the creation of The First Take?

It took a long time for us to decide what kind of image we wanted, the direction that we have now. But along the line, we came across the idea of “having pressure like a fashion show.” This became our keywords. In a really simple setting, not only the performance but from the appearance to some talk after the show… We thought this was really cool. We knew from there that the setting had to be all white, being extremely minimal.

What kind of artists do you hope to have on The First Take?

A professional, who could do one-take performance in high-quality sound and visual. This is the key to differentiate us from all other YouTube channels.

Who do you hope to have on the show in the future?

We know that 30% of our viewers are from overseas, so we are hoping to book more diverse and international artists to appear on our channel. We hope to develop more globally in the coming days.

How can fans access the show?

We wanted to create content that cannot be done on terrestrial channels; music and visual contents that are unique to YouTube. There are various platforms on the web, but YouTube is really active at this moment. Hereon, streaming music will be the mainstream of music business. We wanted to create a YouTube channel that can reach out directly to the audience, where we can introduce great songs and artists, in a way that’s different from a TV music program.

When we recorded “Neko” by Takumi Kitamura of the DISH//, we had this feeling that it was going to work. In fact, we had a lot of great responses, and even though the song was released back in 2018, the TFT version was soon distributed online (from April). I think this is a little bit like how ‘MTV Unplugged’ worked. TFT takes time to create precise planning for the recording with the artist team. As a result, many artists decided to do a specially arranged performance for TFT. Thus the recorded music will have a new value; the video is a documentary of the recording… and the music fans love it. We were unsure about this recording style for a long time, but we can say that we were successful because we decided to do a precise and proper recording.

Since then we started to release digitally in music.

What can fans expect from The First Take?

We try not to give any specific direction. We just tell the artist to “perform like a show.” When the shooting starts, all the staff leave, and it’s just the artist in the white studio. No rules; it’s a completely free one-shot take, so naturally, there’s quite a tension.

For the recording, all we say is “please perform as usual,” and we also don’t tell them what to say to the camera. We ask them to say whatever they feel, in their own words, so some people get really nervous.

It’s not good to say this, but I feel really lucky when something happens like the artist misses the lyrics (laugh). Because it’s a result of doing it with the soul. The artist puts in all of his/her energy and heart, to give the best performance. The pressure takes the artist beyond the limit and even during the song and after the performance, the artist, the staff, everyone there is always moved by it.

We try to keep that special feel of a live performance, even though it’s a recording.

By building such experiences, we can vividly define the overwhelming power of expression that an artist has. We want the viewers to feel, not think, when they are hearing this music. That way, we think they can sense music in higher resolution. We want our viewers to get goosebumps as they watch our YouTube channel.

Procter and Gamble returns as the presenting sponsor for the Cincinnati Music Festival. Other sponsors include the Cincinnati Bengals, Northern Kentucky CVB, AARP, Santangelo Group, The Cincinnati Region, and Vibe Cincinnati.
