SHEFF G “Proud of Me Now”

Sheff G, the leader of Brooklyn’s premier crew and label, Winners Circle Entertainment, closes out 2020 with the release of his debut album Proud of Me Now (Winners Circle Entertainment/RCA Records).  With Great John (“on the beat by the way”) helming production, Proud of Me Now is a coming-of-age lyrical journey where Sheff details his evolution – from his slip-ups to his come ups. Click here to listen.

Sheff kicked off Proud Of Me Now with the release of two singles, “No Negotiations and Lights On,” both of which further exemplified why Vulture named him as part of “NY’s Next Rap Generation.” Throughout the album, Sheff continues to play between a smooth flow and guttural style, leading beyond the Brooklyn drill movement.

“‘Proud of Me Now’ is my first album in partnership with RCA and my label Winners Circle. A lot of hard work went into making this album. I’m proud of the music I’m making. I’m proud of my team. I’m proud of being a CEO. I’m proud of me, now!!!,” says Sheff G.

Sheff G has also gained positive attention from the media. “When Flatbush drill rapper Sheff G is at the peak of his powers, his songs are exhilarating…His raps feel like wind sprints,” said Pitchfork.

Sheff G is also proud to have been chosen as Audiomack’s latest UpNow artist, their signature program dedicated to spotlighting and promoting the next generation of global music superstars. Announced earlier today by the streaming platform, Sheff G currently graces the cover of their popular UpNow Playlist and will be prominently featured across their channels with specialized marketing, editorial, social support, playlisting, custom videos, and more.

Over the past two years, and particularly throughout this summer, Sheff G kept the streets of Brooklyn and beyond ablaze with several drops, including his previous mixtape Just For Y’all, which garnered over 9.6M streams across all platforms, and the One and Only EP, ranked #21 on Complex’s list of 2020’s best albums so far.

Sheff G’s rise to stardom began in 2016 creating a local hit, “Nightmare,” produced by Great John in his living room. The following year, he released his breakout hit “No Suburban,” followed by the acclaimed 2019 project, The Unluccy Luccy Kid. Sheff showed no signs of slowing down dropping “No Suburban Pt. 2” which received over 21.2M streams. With each release, Sheff G displays a raw style addressing blunt realities with authenticity.

ABOUT WINNERS CIRCLE ENTERTAINMENT

Co-owned and operated by a solid management conglomerate which is made up of Jeremy “Jerm” Soto and Karel “White” Jorge.

On the heels of the partnership with RCA Records and Winners Circle Entertainment co-led by Sheff G and Sleepy Hallow, the collective is on a mission to create a culture-defining legacy and sound.  Winners Circle kicked off the partnership with a Sleepy Hallow single, “Tip Toe,” featuring Sheff G. The track delivered gritty verses while juxtaposing a playful sample popularized by Tiny Tim’s ukulele driven hit, “Tiptoe Through the Tulips.”

Amy Shark – All the Lies About Me × other announcements

Multi ARIA award-winning singer-songwriter Amy Shark announced that her sophomore album CRY FOREVER will be released on April 30th 2021 and is available to pre-order now via Wonderlick Recording Company/Sony Music Entertainment Australia/RCA Records. Shark also released a new track “All The Lies About Me” which will be featured on CRY FOREVER and is available now HERE. Additionally, Shark has  announced a massive headline tour of Australia in June/July 2021 in support of CRY FOREVER.

Shark’s national CRY FOREVER tour will be the Gold Coast local’s most ambitious live undertaking yet in some of the largest venues Australia has to offer. The tour will kick off at Qudos Bank Arena (Sydney) on June 12, before moving through to Rod Laver Arena (Melbourne) on June 18, Wrest Point Lawns (Hobart) June 19, HOTA (Gold Coast) June 25, Riverstage (Brisbane) June 26, Adelaide Entertainment Centre July 1 and will finish up in Perth at RAC Arena on July 3. Tickets go on sale Friday 11 December at 10am local time and are available from www.amyshark.com

Amy Shark sold in excess of 45,000 tickets in 2019 across her metro and regional tours, with her regional tour last week picking up the ARIA for ‘Best Australian Live Act’, paired with her ARIA win for ‘Best Pop Release’ for ‘Everybody Rise’. The CRY FOREVER tour will see Shark level up, rolling out world class production and musicianship as she brings her anticipated new album to life in arenas across Australia.  

No stranger to the big stage, Amy Shark has headlined many major festivals, along with winning over the entire stadium at Fire Fight and wowing a huge national audience with her recent NRL Grand Final appearance. Guaranteed to delight fans across Australia, this career defining must-see tour promises to feature stand out performances of songs from the critically acclaimed LOVE MONSTER album, fan faves from the NIGHT THINKER EP and of course brand new music from CRY FOREVER including ARIA winning, platinum accredited ‘Everybody Rise’ which is nearing 20 million streams globally and spent 12 weeks in the top 10 Australian airplay chart.  

I am so proud of this album and it’s time to hand these songs over to the fans,” says Shark. “To announce a tour of this size, after the year we have been through, gives me hope that the world is heading back to normality. I will give every show every part of me, this is going to be massive and I am counting down the days to perform.” 

CRY FOREVER is the follow up to Amy Shark’s 2018 #1 ARIA Album Of The Year, LOVE MONSTER . Written and recorded between the US, UK, New Zealand and Shark’s home studio on the Gold Coast, her exceptional songwriting is on full display here, co-producing with A-List producers: Dann Hume (ARIA 2018 & 2019 Producer Of The year), M-Phazes (Ruel, Eminem), Joel Little (Lorde, Taylor Swift), Jamie Hartman (Lewis Capaldi, Rag ‘n’ Bone Man), Dan Wilson (Adele, Leon Bridges) and Sammy Witte (Harry Styles, King Princess). CRY FOREVER will also see Shark team up with Grammy award winning artist Keith Urban following on from her latest collaboration with Blink 182’s Travis Barker on new single, ‘C’MON.’ 

Through Shark’s honest and emotional storytelling, CRY FOREVER is set to be an evolution from her debut album LOVE MONSTER, “I am now a more confident musician and person than the Amy of 2018, and I feel like I am ready to share some moments from my life that I wasn’t previously ok to talk about, ” says Shark, “These are some of the most personal and confronting songs I’ve ever written, and I can’t wait to share them with everyone.” And to celebrate the album and tour announcement, Shark has dropped a new track, ‘All The Lies About Me’, featuring her trademark soaring vocals, powerful lyrics and acoustic guitar. “This song is me at my most confused, broken and lonely. It’s not easy hearing things about yourself that simply aren’t true. Sometimes the noise gets too loud so I had to write this song as it’s the only way I can talk.” 

Amy Shark has come a long way since her breakthrough single Adore.  As shared on her Instagram account – in just a few years she has gone from moving 82 tickets in her home state of Queensland, to selling out arena-sized venues all across the country.After bursting on to the global music scene in 2016, her 5 x Platinum single ‘Adore’ put her on the map as one of Australia’s most formidable emerging songwriters. This was followed by 4 x Platinum and number one Australian Airplay Chart hit, ‘I Said Hi’ and the 2019 2 x platinum single ‘Mess Her Up’. Shark’s debut/breakthrough #1 ARIA album and Platinum-certified LOVE MONSTER was recognised in 2018 with four ARIA awards (Album of the Year, Best Female Artist, Best Pop Release, Best Producer [Dann Hume]) and was nominated for another five. LOVE MONSTER went on to become the highest selling album by an Australian artist for 2018. 

Undoubtedly, 2021 is poised to be an even bigger year for Amy Shark with the release of her sophomore record and national CRY FOREVER tour. 

The CRY FOREVER tour will be held with a commitment to a COVID Safe environment.  TEG LIVE will work closely with and comply with all requirements of the public health authorities in respect of these shows.

DAVID BOWIE LP

AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME AS LIMITED EDITION PICTURE DISC

RELEASED JANUARY 29, 2021 BY UMe/DECCA/DERAM EXCLUSIVELY VIA HERE.

Deram Records originally released David Bowie‘s self-titled debut album on June 1, 1967, the very same day as The Beatles Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club Band. While it was not a hit at the time, over the past 50 years it’s gained a reputation for being a perfect snapshot of the time and has earned plaudits for being one of the first contemporary pop albums to be sung in an English accent. Bowie himself revisited songs from this era in 2000 re-recording the likes of “Silly Boy Blue” for an album called Toy which remains unreleased.

The album may not have been a huge success but there were music writers who saw something in Bowie, the NME called it “All very refreshing” and that he was “a very promising talent.”

The biography prepared at the time describes David Bowie thus “His remarkable powers of observation enable him to write with humour and wit about the people, loved and unloved, and the attitudes, lovely and unlovely, that constitute today’s society. A recent bout of ‘flu enabled him to pen half a dozen songs to go on a forthcoming Deram LP. In fact, David is one of the very few artists commissioned for an album before a single. Simultaneously, David is writing songs and situations for a colour film in which he is to star and putting the finishing touches to a unique cabaret act.


The album will be released for the first time as picture disc on January 29th and will be made available exclusively HERE.

Timmy Trumpet Drops Debut Album

Today, global superstar DJ, producer and live instrumentalist Timmy Trumpet releases his highly anticipated debut album MAD WORLD. Inspired by the world we live in; Mad World is the official soundtrack of 2020 – an ode to an era we will never forget.

This 18-track epic collection includes collaborations with R3HAB, Scooter, Vini Vici, Vengaboys and Gabry Ponte, and features 11 brand-new tracks never heard anywhere else before.

“I’ve been a trained Jazz musician and composer most of my life and I’ve been dreaming of the day when I finally release an artist album. I went into this experience with no limitations or expectations on myself or what others may expect from me or have come to know of me” says Timmy.

“This album represents all of me and all of what inspires me the most. The people, my fans, my family, my friends,” Timmy continued. “The people that make everything we go through in life worth it no matter what challenges we face.  They make me who I am, and this is what I have made for them in return. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I’ve loved making it.”

For the album cover, Timmy turned to his fans to help create a collage of pictures that tell the story of what the experiences of this year mean to them. Timmy personally sought through thousands of images reading the attached stories written by people all over the world. It’s this attention to detail that is evident in this body of work, a well-defined and definitive collection of electronica that encompasses a plethora of sub-genres. Timeless and timely, this is the album his fans have been patiently waiting for.

2020 has been a monstrous year for Timmy Trumpet as he continues his climb to the very top of the global music scene at an unrelenting pace. His very first live stream clocked over 7 Million views becoming one of the most-watched events in electronic music this year and more recently he landed in the Top 10 of DJ Mag Top 100, a feat managed only by a very small list of artists in the past decade.

In the lead up to the release of MAD WORLD, Timmy dropped the title track, “Mad World,” in collaboration with Italian DJ/producer Gabry Ponte, along with the music video featuring stunning visuals filmed in Philadelphia just one day after the pivotal 2020 U.S. Presidential election. He also released his second single off MAD WORLD, “Paul Is Dead,” with German techno legends Scooter on November 27.

East Lake Projects is where all my problems came from and made me grown early, but my happy times came from there too. I couldn ‘t imagine any other way to be. The projects may have given me scars and bruises, but also motivated me to be the nigga I am today. “

While Zy ‘s April debut, Zy Story, introduced audiences to his unique vocal approach and innate ear for melody, East Lake Projects showcases a more vulnerable, personal side of the rapper. On the first track,  “Straight Out Them Projects, “Zy immediately establishes the tone of the record. Over melancholic piano chords, he sings,  “We come from poverty / We had to find a way / Straight out them projects, ain ‘t had shit, I had to find a way. “East Lake Projects is deeply indebted to Zy ‘s childhood, and on the project, he aims to shine a light on the community he grew up in and the violence that still plagues it.

Zy offered a preview of East Lake Projects back in October when he released the video for  “How It Go (feat. Hotboii),” which is at nearly a million views. On the track, Zy takes on the vivacious hook while Hotboii delivers smooth melodic verses. The song is one of the more playful, freewheeling cuts on the project, showing that even when Slatt Zy is excavating his emotions, he ‘s able to turn up too.

Zy prides himself on his incredible work ethic and desire to provide his family a better life. In less than a year, he has released over 10 music videos, in addition to Zy Story. With early support from HotNewHipHop, WorldStarHipHop, SAY CHEESE!, Lyrical Lemonade, and ELEVATOR MAGAZINE, it ‘s clear Slatt Zy is on the way up. Zy has come a long way from sleeping on the living room floor with 11 other people and having to attend school with no shoes to now trading in his braces for his first set of diamond grillz.

Koe Wetzel - Sellout

KOE WETZEL RELEASES NEW ALBUM – SELLOUT

Today, genre-bending artist Koe Wetzel has released his third LP Sellout via Columbia Records. The album comes alongside an official video for new single “Cold & Alone,” which was directed by George Nienhuis and stars Wetzel as he experiences the mixed emotions that come with the demise of a relationship. Watch HERE. Produced by long-time collaborator Taylor Kimball, Sellout also includes previously released tracks “Good Die Young,” “Kuntry & Wistern,” and “Sundy or Mundy.” See full tracklisting below.

Last week, Wetzel announced that he and Read Southall will co-headline a mini acoustic tour next month along with Austin Meade who is slated to open each night. The run of shows kick off December 8 at Oklahoma City’s The Criterion where the two headliners will share a stage and trade off playing songs from their respective discographies to a limited capacity live audience. Visit https://koewetzelmusic.com/ for tickets and more information.

The Texas-born singer, songwriter, guitarist, and producer continues to unapologetically trail blaze between grunge, country, Americana, and damn near everything else under the sun on Sellout. From 2015 up until signing with Columbia Records this summer, Wetzel quietly sold over 200,000 units independently and went from playing bars with chicken wire in front of the stage to hosting and headlining his own music festival. With over 485 million streams and video views to date, Wetzel continues to build his diehard audience.

His 2017 debut Noise Complaint became a phenomenon powered by “February 28, 2016” [25.5 million Spotify streams], “Something To Talk About” [20.6 million Spotify streams], “Love” [16.1 million Spotify streams], “Fuss & Fight” [14.4 million Spotify streams], and more. The momentum continued with 2019’s Harold Saul High and its singles “Ragweed” [13.8 million Spotify streams] and “Forever” [10.8 million Spotify streams] as more sold-out shows ensued. Following a tireless grind, Wetzel surprise-released the 2020 anthem “Kuntry & Wistern,” which exploded right out of the gate trending on Apple Music. Wetzel followed with “Sundy or Mundy” in July, marking his first release with Columbia Records, which garnered praise from Rolling Stone who called the song “a mesmerizing tune.”

Sellout is available HERE.

Morgan Wallen Announces Dangerous: The Double Album

As announced last night via his social media, Big Loud/Republic Records’ Morgan Wallen will release his highly-anticipated sophomore album, Dangerous: The Double Album, on January 8, 2021. The vast, 30-track double album is nearly three years in the making, written largely by Wallen throughout the chapter of his career that has established him as “the fastest rising young star in the country” according to Variety. 

With the project’s arsenal of writers ranging from storytelling titans Ashley Gorley, Shane McAnally, Hillary Lindsey, Rhett Akins and Lee Thomas Miller, to two of Wallen’s biggest musical inspirations Eric Church and Jason Isbell, to his closest musical confidants HARDY, ERNEST and Ryan Vojtesak (aka Charlie Handsome), Dangerous: The Double Album further establishes the signature sound crafted by Wallen and producer Joey Moi on his #1 PLATINUM debut, If I Know Me. 

The double shot holds both of Wallen’s current Country radio singles – Top 3 “More Than My Hometown” and Top 30 “7 Summers” – as well as his critically acclaimed cover of Isbell’s “Cover Me Up,” New Year’s surprise release “This Bar,” and the countrified album version of 3X PLATINUM Diplo collaboration, “Heartless.” 

“As y’all may have heard, I announced a double album last night, and I couldn’t be more excited about it,” shares Wallen. “The ‘double album’ idea started off as just a joke between me and my manager because we had accumulated so many songs over the past couple of years. Then quarantine hit, and we realized it might actually be possible to have enough time to make it happen.”

“I also ended up writing quite a few more songs during the quarantine with some of my good buddies. After a few months of production and fine-tuning, I am so proud of what we came up with,” Wallen continued. “I know 32 (eventual) songs sounds like a lot to digest, but I truly did my best to make sure there’s not a song that I would press “next” on.”

“I also wanted the songs to speak to multiple phases of life and have multiple different sounds based on my influences and based on what I enjoy,’ said Wallen. “The three songs that we will put out next week will hopefully encapsulate a lot of the project for you and hold you off until January. Thank y’all!!”

“Well, I did not expect this,” Wallen said from center stage. “I’d like to thank the good Lord first of all. I’d like to thank my mama for always being the one to push me to sing, my dad for always making sacrifices for me and my family so I could sing, and for my team. And for Nashville for accepting me into your family. It’s been a great five years since I moved here and thank you guys so much. God bless you!”

 Earlier this week, the MULTI-PLATINUM hitmaker released the official music video for “7 Summers,” making his acting debut and already scoring nearly 1 MILLION views. Watch the eight-minute short film here. Wallen is currently nominated for two American Music Awards, Favorite Male Artist – Country and Favorite Album – Country (If I Know Me) – fans can vote here.
