Gonçalo Santana releases Brainless via 360 MAGAZINE.

Gonçalo Santana – Brainless

‘Brainless is a poignant piece of prose. Each single is thoughtfully conceived and evokes emotions. The future of this Swiss crooner is bright.’360

Gonçalo Santana is a singer, songwriter, and producer based in Switzerland. Heavily influenced by his family, Gonçalo discovered his passion for music at an early age. Thanks to his father, also a singer, Gonçalo was exposed to a variety of distinguished artists. Like Prince, Luther Vandross, Bruce Springsteen, and Stevie Wonder. He began to write his first verses at the age of Eleven on the napkins and notebooks of boredom. In the end, some songs were even recorded by him and in a more professional manner by his father. Over the years, Gonçalo sought refuge to express himself through words that led to the songs.

In November 2021 Gonçalo released Empty Poetry. Produced by Portugal’s singer and producer Macaia. After taking the time to release new music, Gonçalo Santana released his second single called Verity in 2022, which exceeded 20,000 feeds on Spotify alone. An R&B-inspired song from the early 2000s. On January 27th, Gonçalo Santana finally released its first EP, Brainless.

About Brainless

Brainless came to life when Gonçalo Santana was in a place of vulnerability. Each song represents a mark in time for him, where he felt the need to express himself in order to get it out of his head. Almost every song from Brainless comes from a personal experience. Musically, Gonçalo felt the need to go back in time and resurrect a genre of music that didn’t get much attention in our current times. That’s when he teamed up with the Portuguese music producer Macaia and created 6 songs heavily inspired in the old school R&B and Gospel music.

GENE NOBLE × SOB’s NYC

Gene Noble‘s vocal acrobatics brought back melodic sensuality to R&B, adding small doses of neo-soul, hip-hop, and world music. A star is reborn – this time with a fresher, more innovative tonality.’ – 360 MAGAZINE


Listen to Gene Noble chat with 360 MAG‘s Armon Hayes wherever podcasts are found.


Singer-songwriter Gene Noble takes center stage in New York’s SOB’s in light of the release of his new project, Feel A Way.

Gene describes this project as “A reintroduction and full circle moment.” During the adolescent stage of his career, he ponders on previous performances at the iconic venue. Constantly honing his craft and cultivating a strong fanbase, this was an opportunity tailored to the gifted artist who had just finished a tour with the legendary Sting.

Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter Gene Noble kicks off the new year with his latest album, Feel A Way. The New York-bred vocalist shares his highly-anticipated LP, which builds on the momentum of “Whatever It Is” released at the tail end of 2022.

After taking to social media to let fans know about his future release plans, Gene is ready to turn the page on a new chapter in his sonics. Feel A Way seizes on both the creative and personal liberation that Gene has experienced over the years. The album’s eight tracks are an anecdote of self-reflection as he comes to terms with the reality of working through his feelings.

LISTEN TO ‘FEEL A WAY’ BY GENE NOBLE HERE

On the new LP, Gene explains: 
“This whole project is full of songs that I’ve recorded literally around the world. It’s me being in different feels, in different moments, and having different thoughts.”

Unlike anything he’s shared previously, Feel A Way is a sonic journey through acceptance and forgiveness, baring his process of growth as Gene looks inward for an unconditional love.

Alongside the release of his new score, Gene has kicked off his Feel A Way album release shows to support his new project, starting yesterday (Jan 19) at SOB’s in New York. The release shows will conclude in Atlanta’s Center Stage Theater on January 23rd. As a touring artist, the soulful crooner has developed a reputation for his one-of-a-kind singing voice. He has this unique ability to connect with listeners on a personal level. His music is relatable, addressing topics that hit close to home and the heart.

1. The Cost

2. Champagne Jack

3. This Groove

4. S’posed 2 Be

5. Whatever It Is

6. Feel A Way

7. So Dry

8. Affirmation

About Gene Noble:

Gene Noble is the most experienced “newcomer” in R&B music today. As he continues the lineage of artistry that runs deep in his family – both of Gene’s parents were singers – the New York-born crooner got his start by singing out of local venues before getting his first “big break” performing alongside Lauryn Hill. This defining moment in his career would prove to be a precursor for what lies ahead, allowing Gene to hone in on a natural talent that changed his life for the better. From open mics at the Village Underground to taking center stage with Sting to perform a live mashup of “Shape of My Heart” and “Lucid Dreams,” Gene’s church-trained vocals have allowed him to travel the world (touring with the likes of Usher, Chris Brown and more) while creating a shared moment with each and every one of his fans. In 2020, he took the music scene by storm with “Matching Tattoos” – which was released on National Tattoo Day, Jul 17 – a fan favorite score that serves as the quintessential showcase of Gene’s signature falsetto. Since then, he’s continued to deliver next-level covers and original tracks that have earwormed their way into the hearts of listeners.

About Kane Brown

Named as one of Time’s 100 most influential people in the world, Brown has ascended from social media notability to become one of country music’s most accomplished mainstays with eight chart-topping singles to his name. Noted as “the future of country music” (Billboard), Brown first broke onto the scene with the arrival of his self-titled, 2X Platinum debut album (2016), where he became the first artist ever to lead all five of Billboard ’s main country charts simultaneously. His debut effort, Kane Brown, topped the Billboard Top Country Albums chart for 13 weeks and garnered 7X Platinum-certified hits “Heaven” and “What Ifs”-the fourth and seventh most-streamed country songs of all time (U.S. Nielsen Country On-Demand Streams chart). With the release of his follow-up album Experiment (2018), Brown became the only male country artist in more than 24 years to have his sophomore album debut at the top of the Billboard 200.

Following Experiment, Brown released his multi-song project Mixtape Vol. 1 – which earned Brown an ACM Award nomination for Album of the Year (2021) and an ACM win for “Video of the Year.” A CMA, ACM, Billboard, AMA and People’s Choice Award nominee, Brown has collaborated with numerous artists including Grammy and Academy Award winning singer-songwriter H.E.R.

Nicki Minaj breaks rap record illustration by Nandini Kuppa-Apte announced in 360 MAGAZINE

Minaj Makes History

Diamond-selling hip-hop icon Nicki Minaj makes history this week with her blockbuster new single Super Freaky Girl. It bows at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 as she earns “the first solo female rap track to debut at #1 since 1998. It achieves a myriad of milestones. Nicki stands out as “the first female lead artist to debut at #1 in 2022,” “the first female rapper with multiple #1 debuts, and the “first female rapper to reach #1 without a video in over two years. It also conquers TikTok at #1 on Top US Tracks.

Scoring the “Biggest Consumption Debut for a Lead Female Artist in 2022” and “Biggest Sales Week for Any Single of 2022,” this also marks her fourth Digital #1 of 2022—the most of any artist this year—and 12th Digital #1 overall, enshrining her as the fifth artist to do so. She eclipses her own record for “Biggest Digital Sales Week of Any Track in 2022, dethroning her own “Do We Have a Problem?” [feat. Lil Baby]. With 21 now, it also reaffirms her record as the “female artist with the most Top 10 entries on the Hot 100 of all time.

Tana – Hell Yeah

Gearing up for another massive moment, 15-year-old phenomenon tana (f/k/a BabySantana) serves up a new single and music video entitled “hell yeah” today via Galactic Records/Republic Records. Listen to “hell yeah”HERE. Watch the music video for “hell yeah”HERE.

The track’s otherworldly and off-kilter production offsets his dynamic melodic flow. He cuts through the beat with ethereal melodies and an engaging and entrancing hook. The accompanying visual seamlessly captures this sonic ebb and flow.

It arrives in the wake of “swagging like this” with Lancey Foux and “nyc.” The latter reeled in over 1.3 million Spotify streams in addition to receiving critical acclaim. Right out of the gate, office raved, “[tana], who is known for his brief but genius tracks and adds ‘NYC’ to the list of songs you wish were longer” and hailed the track as “filled with a frenzy of hard-hitting lyrics from his prodigal mind.

Recently, he concluded a full-scale North American tour with multiplatinum chart-topping rap phenoemnon Lil Tecca. Next up, he will appear at Rolling Loud Toronto September 9-11 and Rolling Loud New York September 23-25 before supporting Tecca on tour across Europe.

Earlier this year, tana’s “off the leash!” feat. yvngxchris & Luisss racked up north of 26.2 million Spotify streams. Daily Chiefers applauded it as a “fucking banger” and urged, “each drop is seemingly better than the previous one.” DJ Booth touted it among the “Best Songs of the Week” and wrote, Santana declares himself ‘off the leash, which has the young Georgia rapper gnashing through crunchy production and features from yvngxchris and Luisss.

With catchy chameleonic flows, a predilection for otherworldly melodies, and skill that far belies his age, 15-year-old rapper and creator tana roots his vision in versatility. The Columbus, GA native presents an ambitious perspective on hip-hop, separating himself from the pack by disregarding convention and pushing past every boundary. As a kid, tana instantly gravitated towards music, listening to everyone from Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz to Soulja Boy and Pitbull. By 12-years-old, he taught himself how to record, working out of a tiny bedroom closet in complete D.I.Y. fashion. Under initial the name BabySantana, he slowly, but surely gained traction on Soundcloud with a series of uploads. Lil Tecca jumped on his “Prada (Remix), and Pitchfork showed love to the collaboration in 2020. He parlayed this momentum into an explosion with “Antisocial” [feat. Slump6s], gathering 76.1 million Spotify streams and 5.6 million YouTube views. Its sequel “Antisocial 2” [feat. Slump6sYung FazoXhuloooSSGKOBE] posted up 23 million Spotify streams as “14” [with KA$HDAMI] reeled in another 24 million Spotify streams. Concurrently, XXL summed up his rise, “more and more artists are grasping hip-hop earlier than ever, and creating it in their own way. BabySantana surely fits the bill.” After amassing hundreds of millions of streams and earning acclaim, he emerges as an inimitable force on his 2022 debut project, and more to come.

BROOKE MORIBER – SAVIOR

On July 22, 2022, Reviver Records recording artist Brooke Moriber today released her powerful new song “Savior.” Listen to the poignant track here.

“I can’t help but help you, but it doesn’t make you stronger.

You’ll fall holding onto me when you call thinking I can be your savior.

“I couldn’t be happier to release a song that is so near and dear to my heart,” said Moriber. “I hope that ‘Savior‘ inspires people to take care of themselves first and foremost and to leave unhealthy situations when their wellbeing is in jeopardy.”

Savior” is an intensely personal track that Moriber penned with Bill DiLuigi and Josh Ronen about learning how to love someone without losing too much of yourself. Produced by Todd Lombardo and Craig Alvin (Kacey Musgraves), “Savior” showcases Moriber‘s strong voice and ever-relevant lyricism.

Entertainment Focus said of “Savior,” “One listen to the track puts me firmly in mind of artists like Carly Pearce and Kelsea Ballerini. Uplifting vocals and soaring arrangements combine to produce an evocative, powerful ballad.”

Moriber‘s previous singles, “Down to Nothing” and “This Town Made Us,” both of which she co-wrote, introduced the former Broadway star to the country music scene. Since then, she has been crisscrossing the country on radio tours and introducing herself to stations as programmers and fans alike fall in love with her thoughtful songwriting and incredible vocals. A recent television performance on “Today in Nashville,” high-profile appearances at “Live in the Vineyard,” an opening stint for Dylan Scott, and performing the National Anthem at the SF Giants game have solidified Brooke as a star on the rise.

When she is not on the road, Moriber has been hard at work in Nashville with some of the industry’s top writers and producers as she continues to record for her upcoming full-length project. Inspired by the likes of Jennifer Nettles, Ingrid Andress, Brandi Carlile and her idol Linda Ronstadt among many others, Brooke is poised to take her place among the biggest voices in country music.

Max Drazen releases Caffeine inside 360 Magazine

Max Drazen – Caffeine

Following the acclaimed release of his first single, “Let Me Down Slow,” Max Drazen returns with “Caffeine” – a song fans have been waiting for since last July when he posted a clip on TikTok that amassed a million views in the first 24 hours. The neo-soul-tinged, tongue-in-cheek track tells the story of the up-and-down relationship of a couple with vastly different approaches to life. It’s one of the first songs Drazen wrote and recorded with producer Dave Villa (FLETCHER, Daughtry). Max wrote all the lyrics. Listen HERE. Drazen recently signed with Capitol Records, which released “Caffeine” in conjunction with Field Trip Recordings. He has inked with Fourward for management.

“I love happy songs with sad lyrics. Songs that make you want to dance but also have a deeper meaning,” says Max Drazen. “Caffeine’s sonics match the energy of the honeymoon phase in a relationship, while the lyrics describe feeling hopeless but indifferent.” 

Putting “Let Me Down Slow” on its list of “10 Cool New Pop Songs to Get You Through The Week,” Billboard praised it as a “relaxed rhythmic-pop track that amps up as the singer-songwriter becomes more desperate for emotional closure… Drazen showcases different tricks up his sleeve in the process – rap-singing on the verses, vulnerable warbling on the bridge, and a nice melodic feel on the main hook.” Early Rising said, “’Let Me Down Slow’ is a classic break up song that displays both Max’s vocal range and writing ability in the most cohesive way.” Watch the L.A.-based songwriter’s live performance video for “Let Me Down Slow” HERE.

Born and raised in Connecticut, Drazen’s first influences came from his parents’ record collection – Elton John and Billy Joel. As he got older, he fell in love with artists like Smino, Justin Timberlake, Jon Bellion and Two Door Cinema Club. The pieces would connect during his junior year of high school, when Drazen went over to a friend’s house and wrote his first song. Although recruited to play soccer at Middlebury College, he found his focus shifting to songwriting. He developed a sinewy, genre-agnostic voice and centered his authentic perspective as a kid from the ‘burbs, adeptly swinging between R&B, pop and rap. Now signed to Field Trip Recordings, Drazen has his eyes set on the future, with more genre-traversing songs on the way.

Reneé Rapp knew was born to perform ever since she was a child via 360 MAGAZINE

Reneé Rapp – In the Kitchen

Reneé Rapp returns with her new single “In the Kitchen.” The 22-year-old delivers a poignant piano ballad that highlights her knack for penning devastating lyrics and shows off her towering vocal range. Currently winning over viewers and critics alike with her starring role as “Leighton” in the HBO Max series The Sex Lives of College Girls, this track proves that Rapp has equally developed gifts as a musician.

Listen to “In The Kitchen” (Interscope Records) by Reneé Rapp HERE

On “In the Kitchen,” Rapp hones in on a simple memory from a relationship — to convey how alone she feels. “I walk in the kitchen, my heart hits the floor,” she sings sweetly over gentle chords. “It’s you that I’m missing, just had a vision of us cooking dinner, and you’re holding me from behind.” Co-written by Reneé alongside Monsters & Strangerz (Dua Lipa, Justin Bieber, Maroon 5), Tommy Brown (Ariana Grande, The Weeknd, Blackpink), and Michael Pollack (Lizzo, Becky G, Justin Bieber), the song draws on personal moments of Reneé’s creating an emotional and raw experience for her listeners almost enduring the pain alongside her as she sings.

“In the Kitchen” is the follow up to Rapp’s major-label debut “Tattoos,” which has already amassed 3 million combined streams and growing. Throughout her career, Rapp has displayed an indelible skill for enthralling audiences with vibrant performances and genuine energy. Outside of music, she stars in the HBO Max series from Mindy Kaling entitled The Sex Lives of College Girls. It’s a role that calls for innate comedic timing and breathtaking dramatic prowess, both of which Rapp has in spades. That emotional rawness also informs “In the Kitchen,” a song that soars and devastates. With a full-length project due soon – Rapp is just getting started.  

ABOUT RENEÉ RAPP:

Reneé Rapp knew 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.

PARAVI – GOLDEN CHILD

Singer/songwriter Paravi is excited to officially release her first original song “Golden Child” via RCA Records. The sonically lush pop production explores the raw emotions of unlearning perfectionism. Propelled by Paravi’s melodic vocals, “Golden Child” serves as a reminder that it’s okay to not be perfect, to make mistakes, and to do what makes you happy. Listen HERE.

Speaking on “Golden Child” Paravi says, “This is a song I wrote to give myself permission to fuck up. As a child of immigrants and a young Indian girl entering the music industry, I’m no stranger to the self-placed pressure of perfectionism and the strain of living up to the “model minority” idea, a concept my parents never forced upon me, but something I picked up from my American-ized Indian experience. It wasn’t until I went to college that I took a leap of faith into imperfection by allowing myself to make mistakes. Unlearning the weight of this pressure I had put on myself for so long is exactly what “Golden Child” is at its core. Instead of worrying about what others think, I realized that being authentic and encouraging myself to live life a little further off the edge is what makes me happy.”

Deemed a “…musical force to be reckoned with” by NYLON, Paravi continues to carefully craft a style of her own, alternating between moments of vivid vulnerability and vocal vitality above organically warm production. As a newly signed artist with RCA Records, Paravi is looking forward to sharing more original music this summer/fall. 

Additionally, Paravi was recently featured on the official motion picture soundtrack for Baz Luhrmann’s blockbuster film ELVIS for her rendition of the iconic “Suspicious Minds”. Check it out HERE
