Slump6s – Origin

After piling up tens of millions of streams and views independently, 16-year-old Rochester, NY hip-hop artist Slump6s unleashes a new single and music video entitled “Origin” via Field Trip Recordings/Republic Records.

On the track, a string sample and a claustrophobic beat drive the frenetic production as his hyperactive delivery bursts with energy. It illuminates his ability to flip like a switchblade between punchy verses and a chantable hook. With its psychedelic filters and rapid cuts, the accompanying visual reflects this kinetic motion as he turns up outside in Los Angeles. It also arrives on the heels of his latest single “Moment,” which Elevator Magazine highlighted the rapper as “part of the new generation of soundcloud rappers who are taking the internet by storm,” and Our Generation Music noted his “melodic delivery is able to adapt as the instrumental starts with a wavy synth and leads into heavier 808s”. However, everything just sets the stage for more music to come from Slump6s. Be on the lookout.

About Slump6s
As the culture evolves, the boundaries of hip-hop continue to expand as well. However, Slump6s pushes those limits even farther. The 16-year-old Rochester, NY artist and rapper wields his voice like an instrument. Rather than gliding atop beats or charging against them, his vocals entangle with the production, moving in calculated harmonic bursts of emotion. Growing up in Rochester, he studied and memorized videos of Michael Jackson on YouTube. Dad owned a studio and often recorded friends. By six-years-old, Slump6s would sing over pop’s beats and record himself. Throughout school, he participated in band and learned clarinet, trombone, trumpet, and drums. In eighth grade, he started to upload music to Soundcloud as an escape. At the top of 2020, he dropped “Spark” and ignited palpable buzz. As he piled on streams with singles such as “Up It” and his independent 16 EP, he attracted a rabid audience on social media. He rode this momentum into 2021, meeting BabySantana on Discord and teaming up for the breakout single “Antisocial.” Right out of the gate, it generated 27.9 million Spotify streams and 1.3 million views on the music video championed by Wav Guide and more. Landing a deal with Field Trip Recordings/Republic Records, he sharpened his signature style as only a sophomore in high school. After racking up 20 million-plus streams independently, he masterfully leans into an ever-evolving melodic sensibility on a series of singles in 2021 led by “Moment.”

Kash Doll × Wale × Eric Bellinger

Today, award-winning, certified artist, entrepreneur and actress Kash Doll reveals the music video, which exclusively premiered on Tuesday on Facebook, for her red hot new single “Single & Happy” feat. Wale & Eric Bellinger. It arrives ahead of the fourth episode of the highly anticipated STARZ series Black Mafia Family, which features the rap femme fatale in a recurring role.

In the visual, Kash Doll occupies an ornate and classy mansion. As she raps right from bed, the rising superstar simultaneously auditions a series of potential suitors in between performing the track alongside Wale and Eric Bellinger. All at once, it reflects her attitude, swagger, and style on-screen, affirming her star power.

Since dropping last month, “Single & Happy” has already amassed millions of streams and counting. Earning critical acclaim, Complex praised how the track “gets straight to the point: understanding your self worth and seeking a partner who only adds to what you already have, rather than becoming someone you can’t live without.” Vibe highlighted the song’s “positive messages, while HotNewHipHop proclaimed she “didn’t hesitate to bring her bad bitch energy. Sohh summed it up as “pure audio fire.

It followed her previous single “Like A Pro” [feat. Juicy J]. Right out of the gate, HotNewHipHop raved how she “comes with nothing but energy, and Brooklyn Vegan hailed it as “a bouncy, catchy, raunchy new jam. Revolt predicted “the record is expected to be blaring through the speakers of the club ASAP. Elite Press put it best, calling it “one of the best songs of the year.

Kash Doll, who has gathered over 1 billion streams worldwide since signing with Republic Records, continues to pull up everywhere this year. She features on Saweetie’s “Hoops” alongside the legendary Salt-N-Pepa from the mega-anticipated Space Jam: A New Legacy Soundtrack. She took the stage at Detroit Summer Fest this month. Next up, she joins the bill of the Migos “Culture III” Las Vegas Weekender on October 15 and Rolling Loud LA on December 10.

Kash Doll continues to make waves. Receiving critical acclaim from Vulture and Marie Claire, Essence praised, “If there’s one rapper who can teach us a thing or two about remaining confident, it’s Kash Doll. Meanwhile, she guested on “Friday Night Cypher” from Big Sean’s chart-dominating Detroit 2 and joined forces with HoodCelebrityy for “So Pretty.”

Detroit native Kash Doll has impacted the music industry with a commanding force, dropping street-earned truths with her throwback wordplay and powerful bars. The one-two combination of spirit and sass announced her as fiery female force in 2019 after quietly amassing 30 million-plus on-demand streams, garnering the BMI Social Star Award and “Issa Wave Award” at the BET Social Awards, securing a new management deal with Title 9 Productions and inking a recording contract with Republic Records. An unbelievable story brought her to this point. Losing her dad on just her first birthday, she always held down multiple jobs to support her mom and siblings. And at 18, she started investing in herself eventually opening two beauty bars and funding her own music career. She made waves on the 2014 independent debut mixtape, Keisha Vs. Kash Doll. Following 2016’s Trapped In The Dollhouse, she developed a presence as a touring force and earned coveted co-signs from Drake, Big Sean, Rick Ross, Remy Ma, and many more. The 2018 The Vault mixtape captured #1 on multiple mixtape sites as her debut single for Republic Records “Ice Me Out” and its 2 Chainz-assisted official remix clocked 85 million-plus total streams. Last year, Kash Doll also released a project solely for her fans titled Brat Mail to thank them for all their continued support. The project garnered over 30 million global streams and features the break out single “Check.” Shortly before Brat Mail, Kash released one of her biggest singles to date, “For Everybody,” which racked up over 101 million YouTube/VEVO views independently. Outside of music, this boss runs Kash Doll Enterprises and does charity work around her hometown. Her city bestowed the “Spirit of Detroit” Award upon her. Additionally, in 2019, Kash Doll released her debut album Stacked, received a 2019 BET Award nomination for “Best Female Hip-Hop Artist,” garnered critical acclaim for her album from Billboard, MTV, UPROXX, BET, Forbes, Nylon and more and toured with Meek Mill. This year will be full of brand new music, acting and more from the Detroit star.

J.I.D – Ambassel

Atlanta rapper/artist J.I.D has released visualizer for his track “Ambassel,” which appears on the recently released NFL Madden 22 video game soundtrack. The video spotlights the East Atlanta ‘playboy’—and former highschool/college football star—at the famed Mercedes Benz stadium, home of the Atlanta Falcons performing along to the head bopping, dizzying track. Watch the video in full HERE. The song and video is a teaser of what fans can expect from J.I.D as he works on his next album, The Forever Story. Later this month, fans will be able to catch J.I.D and his Dreamville cohort at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO returning to the live stage to do what he does best.  

About J.I.D

Born and raised in East Atlanta, Grammy nominated J.I.D grew up on his parents’ collection of classic funk/soul LPs, and broke onto the scene with his 2015 EP, DiCaprio. The EP saw him collaborating with hip-hop duo EARTHGANG, whom he’d previously joined on a 2014 tour also including Bas and Ab-Soul. This is where he was spotted by J.Cole who promptly signed J.I.D to his Interscope Records venture, Dreamville Records. Soon after signing to Dreamville, J.I.D made his major-label debut with the widely celebrated The Never Story (2017). The effort was closely followed by critically acclaimed album DiCaprio 2 (2018) which received major looks from Rolling Stone, Billboard, NPR and more. In 2019, J.I.D continued his momentum as rap’s most exciting additions with stellar contributions on Dreamville’s Platinum certified compilation Revenge of the Dreamers III which went on to debut #1 on the Billboard Top 200 charts and received multiple GRAMMY nominations including “Best Rap Album” and “Best Rap Performance.” 

J.I.D’s nimble, head-nodding lyricism and lightning fast flow has awarded him a loyal and cult-like fanbase who have joined the rapper at countless sold out shows across the globe. A mainstay on the festival circuit, J.I.D has brought down arena level crowds at Lollapalooza, Laneway Festival and would have made his Coachella debut if not for the pandemic. Not much seems out of reach for this Atlanta native who’s rise to superstardom seems almost imminent.

White Lies – New Album

White Lies announced the details of their forthcoming sixth album As I Try Not To Fall Apart, which will be released on [PIAS] on February 18th, 2022.

In addition, today the band share the title track from the album and an accompanying visual.

On the track they share: “We wrote this song quickly, late one night, and often the songs which come quickest are written from the gut and the heart, not with the head. We wanted the melody to feel like a hymn, to give the confessional lyrics weight despite being wrapped up as a pop song. It’s about accepting vulnerability as a man, and knowing it’s ok to be broken. There’s never been a more pressing time to spread the message that it”s ok to not be ok.”

The track is accompanied by a stimulating video directed by James Arden aka The Trash Factory.

Talking about the vision for the video, he says: “The track made me think of people trying to lift themselves out of emotional spirals – navigating feelings of fragility and fighting everyday pressures just so they can keep it ;together – ;and it made me think about how we can be buried and overwhelmed by our feelings and emotions, and how we could explore that, visually.”

Harry from White Lies adds: “Being buried in sand was too mad to pass up. The sensation was really chilling and I was picking sand out of my ears for days, but I’m thrilled with the video, it really carries the message of the song and it looks beautiful.”

Recorded at Sleeper and Assault & Battery studios in West London, the album sees long-term collaborator Ed Buller, who has worked on many of their albums including their debut To Lose My Life, return to produce several tracks along with Claudius Mittendorfer (Weezer, Panic! At The Disco) also producing and mixing the entire album.

Track-list for As I Try Not To Fall Apart is as follows:

Am I Really Going To Die

As I Try Not To Fall Apart

Breathe

Don’t Want To Go To Mars

Step Outside

Roll December

Ragworm

Blue Drift

The End

There Is No Cure For It

The album can be pre-ordered HERE.

Kito × Bea Miller  – Steal My Clothes

Boundary-breaking producer and Piano-House Queen LP Giobbi has created a darkly infectious, pulsating remix of Kito’s new single, Steal My Clothes ft. Bea Miller, released today by Astralwerks. Download / stream Kito’s exclusive mix is now live on LP Giobbi’s Femme House Radio on Diplo’s Revolution. The mix also includes an interview with Kito by LP. Listen to mix and interview

Steal My Clothes has already amassed over 3.5 million combined global streams. Upon release last month, the song appeared on numerous playlists, including Spotify’s US NMF and Pop Rising and Apple Music’s Best New Songs, New Music Daily and A-List Pop. Kito, Bea and director GIZELLA give fans a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the playful video for Steal My Clothes. The Honey Pop said, From the lyrics, to what a feel-good track it is, everything is NOTION praising the undeniable earworm pop groove and Beyond The Stage hailed the song as a winning collaboration if there ever was one.

Steal My Clothes is the follow-up Recap Kito’s early 2021 collaboration with VanJess and Channel Tres, which Billboard praised as deliciously decadent and refreshing. She’s also been busy creating acclaimed remixes for MARINA’s “Venus Fly Trap”and CHVRCHES’ “Good Girls.

For Kito, making music has always been about finding a way to introduce the world to new sounds. That drive’s been there since her nascent days DJing, unearthing unheard gems, and it’s especially clear now to anyone who tunes into the Australian producerߣs technicolor tracks teach subsequent song is like nothing you’ve ever heard before. Her career, too, has been powered by unpredictable twists and turns. Just as she’s moved across the globe Perth to London to Los Angeles Kito’s found homes at tastemaking labels along the way: Ed Banger Records, Mad Decent and now, Astralwerks. She has also produced a dizzying array of artists (Jorja Smith, Mabel, Banks, FLETCHER), and populated her prismatic 2018 solo Haani, with guests spanning from Broods to Hudson Mohawke. Her most recent collaborations “Follow with ZHU and Jeremih, “Recap” with VanJess and Channel Tres, and Steal My Clothes with Bea Miller shed light on Kito’s approach to futurist pop. She infuses otherwise simple tracks with complex emotions and adventurous sonic turns. Taken with her recent ecstatic remixes of Saweetie and Doja Cat’s Best Friend, MARINA’s Venus Fly Trap, and CHVRCHES Good Girls, Kito’s growing body of work demonstrates how far she’s come as a producer and songwriter.

The Greeting Committee – Dandelion

Today marks the long-anticipated release of Dandelion, the sophomore album from Kansas City-based alt-rock band The Greeting Committee. Released via Harvest Records, Dandelion finds the four-piece working with esteemed producer Jennifer Decilveo (MARINA, FLETCHER, Bat for Lashes) and mixer Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, Tame Impala), delivering a moody and mercurial sound perfectly suited to the album’s emotional terrain. To celebrate Dandelion’s arrival, The Greeting Committee have also shared the video for Make Out, one of the album’s more lighthearted moments. Go listen to Dandelion, and check out the video for Make Out 

The follow-up to The Greeting Committee’s acclaimed 2018 debut album This Is It, Dandelion documents a particularly painful period in the life of frontwoman Addie Sartino, including the grief and inertia she experienced after a devastating breakup. Most of these songs are about feeling like you’re watching your life instead of living it: just going through the motions and feeling stuck and wanting to break out of that, but not really knowing how, she says.

Despite its often-brutal honesty, Dandelion radiates an irrepressible and unbridled energy, thanks in part to the joyful chemistry that The Greeting Committee bring to every track. To that end, the band selected the album’s title due to its suggestion of an unlikely hope. Dandelions are weeds, but depending on your perspective, you can shrug them off or you can choose to see them as a sort of beautiful flower, similar to how we have the choice in what we see in ourselves, says Sartino.

With its fuzzed-out riffs and pogo-ready rhythms, Make Out serves as a bold departure from Dandelion’s heavy-hearted tone. Co-directed by the band and Malik Lemon, the track’s outrageous video finds guitarist Brandon Yangmi facing off in a fantastically chaotic wrestling match featuring Wrestle Yr Friends (a queer wrestling collective based in Kansas City). With Sartino and bassist Pierce Turcotte playing the part of the match’s commentators, the visual makes for a brilliant counterpart to the free-spirited mood of Make Out. For the most part I like to get deep and uncomfortable in my lyrics, but this song is like the Antichrist of that, Sartino says. It’s somewhat of a true tale, about a girl who stuck her tongue out at me at a show in East Virginia and used to send me selfies where she’s in her rollerblades or eating pickles. It was the first time after my breakup that I thought, Maybe I’ll be okay. Maybe life can be fun again, and I won’t be sad forever.

In creating the tracklist for Dandelion, The Greeting Committee made a point of leading their listeners on a cathartic emotional journey. I wanted the record to really show the healing process, starting at a place of desperation and eventually getting to the point of being willing to accept reality, says Sartino. Hailed by Clash as a raw portrayal of post-break-up poignance, the album-opening lead single Can I Leave Me Too? perfectly captures the confusion of heartbreak, while its follow-up Float Away examines how depression warps our self-image. (Released in July, the track earned acclaim from Pop Matters, who likened its sonic elements to the haunted carousel all our minds seem to be stuck riding lately.) And on Ada an August release praised by Earmilk, who noted the band’s warm, welcoming, and vibrant indie rock sound. The Greeting Committee offer up a LGBTQ anthem inspired by a trans woman they befriended years ago, as well as Sartino’s own experience in coming out.

Closing out with the piano-laced reverie of Ten, Dandelion ultimately fulfills The Greeting Committee’s mission of providing their audience with an undeniable sense of emotional solidarity. Over the years we’ve had people come up to us at shows and tell us that our music has saved their lives, which is something we take very seriously, says Sartino. It’s really special to be part of the soundtrack to someone else’s experience, and we want to continue being a source of comfort to our fans and help them understand that they’re not alone.

In celebration of the album release, the band will be on Travis Mills’ Beats 1 Apple Music show and will also collaborate with Fender for a signed guitar giveaway and social takeover.

Jordan Hollywood – Pleasures

Florida rapper, singer, producer, and hitmaking CEO Jordan Hollywood unleashes “Pleasures” a new single and music video out now via Quality Control Music/Motown Records. Listen HERE and watch the video HERE. The song paves the way for his upcoming album, Only The Paranoid Survive, coming soon.

On the track, a hypnotic beat grates up against his intent flow. His nimble rhymes give way to a confessional chorus, “I wake up everyday. I tell my son that I love himߪI miss my mom so much I wish that I could hug you.” In the accompanying visual, a psychotherapist reminds Jordan, Only The Paranoid Survive, before he raps from the couch. As stacks fly, he ends up in a literal battle of tug-of-war before facing off against an entire tactical team. 

“Pleasures” follows his energized summer banger “The Ugly Song” a collaboration with producer legend Timbaland who told Jordan “You really took it there. Lyrically, video style, concept. I just wanna be the added piece to the puzzle.” ThPle record received acclaim from NME, REVOLT, and more, XXL named it among, “The 13 Best New Songs This Week,” and HotNewHipHop raved, “Jordan Hollywood has his hands on a summer smash.”

About Jordan Hollywood

Jordan Hollywood believes paranoia is integral to his success. “I think being paranoid is healthy,” says the Florida native. “Overthinking certain situations can reduce the losses you take in life.” It’s difficult to argue with the versatile artist, producer, CEO, and hustler. His singular ability to blend witty punchlines, vulnerable verses, and melodic croons into captivating rap/R&B/pop hybrids has resonated with his growing fanbase for years. After a stint in his youth writing for fellow Broward County artist Jason Derulo, Hollywood released a successful independent debut Sorry for This in 2016 and then signed with Quality Control Music for 2018’s FINALLY!. The whole way, he’s held to his ever-skeptical mentality, which has now afforded him the space and close-knit creative circle to create his most honest and mature album to date the forthcoming Only the Paranoid Survive. The album is a document of Hollywood’s growth as he perfects the art of balancing family, loyalty, and financial gains. Only the Paranoid Survive is a product of the countless hours Hollywood spent holed up in his home studio speaking to the microphone about everything from the pressures and anxieties of the unknown, new fatherhood, and avoiding people who he doesn’t trust.  The emotions he spills don’t feel born of negativity, but of self-preservation through his worries, he’s learning how to thrive.

The World’s Gone Nuts

The World’s Gone Nutz” is an award-winning, zany, yet socially topical music video and song, created by multi-hyphenate artist Daniel Robert Cohn. This fun parody, starring a cast of only squirrels and inspired by the chaos of 2020, will screen at the Dances with Films Festival (DWF 24), 2:00PM Friday, September 10 in Los Angeles at the TCL Chinese Theater.

Cohn wrote, performed, shot, and animated the video throughout quarantine, motivated by the thrilling challenge of creating a hybrid live-action/animation project where every element on screen had to be created from scratch. “It brought back all the creativity and imagination that I had as a child,” says Cohn. “I was building human sized squirrel hands with materials from craft shops, and compositing them onto the squirrels. Every day was a new challenge and a new adventure.”

When the pandemic hit and productions shut down, filmmaker, musician, animator, and photographer Cohn looked to his immediate home environment for inspiration. With no work, no actors, no crews, no locations and a world that seemed to have gone nuts, he found the ultimate authority on nuts…squirrels! Cohn wrote a rock anthem and directed an epic music video with the energetic, comical cast of characters found in his own backyard. Cohn wanted to bring light into the world at a time when it was most needed, tackling real turmoil in a lighthearted way. The visuals and lyrics for the song feature references from politics and pop culture, like the U.S. presidential election and the rise of new media conglomerates like Twitter and Amazon, highlighting the surreal hilarity of the collective experience of the year 2020. The lyrics feature lines such as, “I think the brink of sanity’s been left behind/Bitcoin, Big Con, Stock Exchange/Fake News, Fox News, Climate Change/Do the laws of science need to be explained?/I think it may be time for Dr. Strange” and “Time’s Up, Time to rise/No more lies, Hear the cries.”

Green screens and digital compositing software create a world that uncannily reflects our current nutty times, and most importantly, gives a much-needed laugh. “One of my favorite things about filmmaking is the magic of it all and how you can find a way to literally tell any story that you can imagine,” says Cohn. “My mission as a filmmaker is to take intangible concepts and make them tangible.” The flagship video “The World’s Gone Nutz,” is one of many made with this cast, including “The Squirrelette,” Halloween, Passover, Hanukkah, Thanksgiving, and Christmas—with more content on the way, including behind-the-scenes photos and trading cards. A portion of all profits from Squirrel Me Bad merchandise is donated to the important non-profit organization, Empowered by Light, that invests in communities on the front lines of climate change, loss of wildlife, and environmental devastation.

A highlight of Dances With Films, Cohn’s entertaining video will bring joy to big screen viewers. As a festival favorite, “The World’s Gone Nutz” has screened at the World London Film Festival, Prague Indie International Film Festival, the Emberlight Festival in Michigan and the Holiday 365 Film Festival. It just won “Best Micro Short” at the Antolia International Film Festival in Turkey, and is on its way to the Indigo Moon Film Festival in North Carolina, and the International Thai Film Festival.

Calum Scott – Biblical ASL Version

Multi-platinum-selling singer/songwriter Calum Scott has created an American Sign Language (ASL) version of his recent single “Biblical,” a stunning and soulful ballad that premiered in June. Made in collaboration with the Tony Award-winning Deaf West Theatre, (David Kurs, Artistic Director), the ASL version of “Biblical” encompasses a powerfully moving video in which the U.K.-based artist and several performers interpret the track’s deeply personal storytelling. Check out “Biblical (American Sign Language Version In Collaboration with Deaf West Theatre)” HERE.  

“It is incredibly important for me to reach as many people as possible with my music so when the opportunity came about to work with the Deaf community, I was so excited to collaborate,” says Scott. “I feel immense gratitude to know that my music continues to transcend language across the world and not only did I want to have a sign language version of the song but I also wanted to learn how to sign it myself to connect directly with my fans in this often underrepresented community.”

Beautifully shot in black and white, the ASL version of “Biblical” opens on Scott spelling out the song’s title in ASL. From there, the visual focuses on a series of actors as they each offer up an impassioned interpretation of “Biblical” and its heartfelt expression of unconditional love. As revealed by Giovanni Maucere (the video’s ASL director), each frame was meticulously crafted to enhance the song’s impact among members of the Deaf community.

“It is my honor to collaborate with Deaf West Theatre and Calum Scott,” says Maucere. “I knew that we could bring a new facet to the song by expressing the beauty and honesty of the song through ASL. Deaf people experience music in various ways, and in this video ASL is layered with camera movement and lighting in a way that we can begin to feel Calum’s story. This music video is a true expression of honest and accessible storytelling.”

Partly recorded at the legendary Abbey Road Studios (and accompanied by a spellbinding video), “Biblical” marks the first single from Scott’s forthcoming sophomore album. Due later this year, the album will follow his 2018 full-length debut Only Human, a widely acclaimed release that hit No. 1 on the iTunes album chart in 21 countries across the globe, in addition to selling more than 3.6 million in adjusted album sales and amassing over 7.5 billion combined streams.

Last month, Scott appeared on “TODAY” to discuss the inspiration behind “Biblical” and deliver a soul-stirring performance of the track. Check out the clip HERE.

With the release of the ASL version of “Biblical,” Scott has moved forward with his ambition of making music that fosters a profound sense of community and connection. “Having seen how my music had reacted with people over the last three years, it gave me an opportunity to absorb what I had experienced, to mature and become an artist with a mission,” says Scott. “I want to create something for people to feel seen, heard, and represented.”

About Calum Scott

With the arrival of his 2018 debut album Only Human, U.K.-based singer/songwriter Calum Scott landed at No. 1 on the iTunes album chart in over 20 countries around the world, amassing over 7.5 billion total global streams and counting. Now certified platinum or gold in 21 countries, Only Human includes his platinum-selling smash “You Are The Reason,” a track that cracked the top 25 on Spotify’s US Viral 50 and hit the top 10 on iTunes single charts in 38 countries. The album also features Scott’s stripped-back, platinum-certified cover of Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own,” which earned a Brit Award nomination in the category of Best British Single. His first new music since Only Human, Scott’s new single “Biblical” marks an exciting evolution of his artistry, bringing even more raw emotion to his soulful and timeless sound. With its title referring to “a love of biblical proportions that transcends everyone and everything,” according to Scott, the piano-laced ballad is the first song released from his highly anticipated sophomore album due early 2022. Over the last few years, his songs have appeared on countless TV shows (including American Idol, The Voice, So You Think You Can Dance, Grey’s Anatomy, and many more), while Scott has performed on such shows as Late Night with Seth Meyers, Ellen, Good Morning America, Live with Kelly and Ryan, and Dancing With The Stars, among others. In addition, he garnered acclaim from outlets including Billboard (who hailed his “stunningly pure voice”), The Huffington Post (who stated that “Scott makes an impressive splash, compelling”), and Ones to Watch (who noted that Scott’s music “elegantly transforms pain into beauty”).
