Ebhoni – Rep It

Unfiltered and unapologetic, Toronto’s “bad gyal” Ebhoni shares her latest visual for “Rep It.”. Directed by Jake & Oliver Productions, “Rep It” showcases the 21-year-old in her truest and most authentic form as she commands the screen with her confident “bad bitch” demeanor on full display. Ebhoni channels 90’s R&B nostalgia giving viewers an inside look on Toronto fashion, glam and culture. Watch HERE.

Framing the dissolution of a relationship that never was, her honest lyrics are a candid complement to the track that generates an emotional resonance beyond it’s barely two-minute run time. A product of both faded nighttime and the melancholic reflection of the morning after, Ebhoni’s matter-of-fact verses remain in the same harshly ephemeral gleam that highlights her own personal heartbreak into an evocative anecdote that feels both universally relatable and unexpectedly transcendent.

Jess Kent Releases Two Singles

July 13th, 2018 (Hollywood, CA) Rising singer and songwriter Jess Kent releases two new singles ‘Bass Bumps’ and ‘No Love Songs’ today as a two-song bundle via Capitol Records and all digital partners. Download/stream both tracks HERE.

Taken together, the two tracks show different dimensions of the England-born, Australia-raised Kent’s impressive lyrical and melodic artistry, with ‘Bass Bumps’ representing her playful, spirited side and ‘No Love Songs’ (featuring Wes Period) tapping into her chilled-out, down-tempo vibe. Kent co-wrote and collaborated on both tracks with Justin Tranter(Gwen StefaniSelena Gomez, Years & Years) with whom she has been in the studio working on her debut album.

“Bass Bumps is an homage to Sydney and the raves where me and my friends used to party,” says Kent. “In the period of time when I was cutting my teeth as a writer and producer, the electronic scene there was vibrant, eclectic, exciting and full of fresh talent. I’m so grateful for that time.” No Love Songs’ came about because I’d been very deliberate in having a broad and bold approach to what I was writing about on the record. Part of that was making sure I was being completely honest about what I wanted to write about. This particular day, I actually felt like writing a love song! So I thought, I won’t be snob- why not?!”

‘Bass Bumps’and ‘No Love Songs’ are Kents’ first new songs since 2016, which saw the release of her debut EP My Name is Jess Kent. The EP features her breakout hit, the reggae-infused alt-dance-pop track ‘Get Down,’ which has racked up more than three million Spotify plays, as well as second single’The Sweet Spot.’

Kent is a self-taught songwriter with a natural skill for crafting boldly nuanced electronic pop music. Born in Derby, England, was raised in Australia and got her start in music thanks largely to her dad, a blues-rock guitarist. She has played guitar since age seven, spent her childhood busking with her brother, and grew up with a love for bands like Blondie and the Clash. Now 24, Kent has mastered a potent rap influenced, melodic delivery that pairs her brash energy and rapid-fire flow with lyrics both defiant and vulnerable. She has toured with ColdplayTroye Sivan, Daya, Nick Jonas and Years & Years.
