Emily Daniels – WELCOME TO A HEARTACHE

Nashville country-pop singer/songwriter and Netflix Sing On Champion, Emily Daniels, will release her debut EP, Welcome To A Heartache. The independent project, featuring five original tunes, will be available via all digital retail and streaming outlets (Amazon/Apple Music/iTunes/Pandora/Spotify/Tidal) on Friday, July 23, 2021 (Symphonic Distribution).

Co-produced by Zachary Manno and Mark Siegel, featuring Emily Daniels co-writes, Welcome To A Heartache encompasses love and life chapters canvassing the varied stages of relationships–from disillusionment to awakening, the hurting and healing, settling for temporary or into a true love.
“This project is near and dear to my heart for so many reasons. Musically and lyrically, I have an absolute and personal connection to each track,” shared Daniels. “The theme explores every aspect of relationships; the first butterfly feeling, to the moment you walk away saying ‘wish you the best’.”

The musical compilation embraces classic 90s country invigorated with contemporary flair. Emily delivers witty, honest lyrics through heartfelt, powerful melodies. With a knack to write infectious, catchy tunes, the songstress infuses musical flavors derived from a touch of Shania Twain sass blended with a dash of Maddie & Tae honey.

The title track (“Welcome To A Heartache”) sets the tone to a spunky, playful progression with sequel tunes: “I’d Fall For That,” a pros and cons checklist of a budding relationship; “Stained Glass” revealing dirty secrets from dirty dishes, and the alternatively liberating “Breaking Up Is Hard To Do.”
An active member of the Nashville songwriting community, Emily is a regular featured performer at renowned songwriter venues in the city such as The Listening Room, City Winery, Belcourt Taps, Tin Roof, Alley Taps, Ole Red and others.

Emily’s likeness can be seen in promotional materials of some of Music City’s most famous tourist attractions; she is an apparel model for The Grand Ole Opry, Ole Red, Ryman Auditorium and Wildhorse Saloon. She has also cultivated partnerships with Arrington Vineyards, Cracker Barrel, the Green Hills Mall, Le Grand Verre Wine and the local boutique, Jondie.

About Emily Daniels

Rising country starlet Emily Daniels may be categorized as a “newcomer” to the entertainment business, but the business of making music most certainly is not new to Emily Daniels.  Emily grew up in Music City, and Nashville is the place she calls “home.” She learned to sing and perform early on and feels right at home in the studio and on stage.

Influenced by lyrical genius Ben Rector, melody queen Tori Kelly, the consistency of Shane McAnally, humor of Kelley Lovelace and Martina McBride for power ballads, Emily pays homage to the trendsetters and legendary greats with a unique contemporary sound and perspective all her own.

Having spent hours honing her vocal instrument, Emily has studied under the direction of distinguished vocal coach Renee Grant-Williams (Carrie Underwood/Faith Hill/Keith Urban).

The Pepperdine University grad (2015) studied psychology and her interpretation translates in strong hooks and authentic, truthful lyrics.

Emily’s talents have been recognized by the industry and talent casters. She was a featured performer at BMI’s Key West Songwriters Festival (May 2019) joining a number of extraordinary talents including Brad Paisley, Scotty Emerick and Liz Rose. Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) has welcomed Emily several times over.  She performed at Tin Pan South, the world’s largest songwriters festival, as an NSAI featured performer in 2018; she was named “Writer To Watch” and awarded “Honorable Mention” at the organization’s annual Song Contest (presented by CMT). Emily has appeared on “Nashville Today” (WSM-AM Radio, Nashville) and was selected to participate in the global singing competition, Sing On (Netflix/Episode 8) where she walked away a winner.

Alice Coltrane - "Kirtan: Turiya Sings," from Tim Plumley from UMe for use by 360 Magazine

Alice Coltrane – “Kirtan: Turiya Sings,” – Release July 16

This summer, the world will finally hear an intimate, spiritual recording made by the godmother of spiritual jazz, Alice Coltrane. Recorded in 1981 and never shared in this form with the world at large, Kirtan: Turiya Sings is a stunning collection of nine devotional songs, featuring the never-before-heard combination of Alice Coltrane’s voice and organ. Kirtan: Turiya Sings will be available July 16 on Impulse! Records/UMe, as part of the legendary label’s 60th anniversary celebration.

Though known by many as the musical partner and wife of John Coltrane, Alice Coltrane is revered for her groundbreaking contributions to spiritual jazz with her legendary Impulse! recordings Journey in Satchidananda and Ptah, The El Daoud, among others. Throughout the 1970s, in addition to maintaining the busy schedule of a recording and touring artist, Alice Coltrane was immersing herself in Eastern philosophies, mythologies, and Vedic religious practices. By the early 1980s, she had become a guru and spiritual teacher and began to make music exclusively for her community at The Vedantic Center, northwest of Los Angeles.

The original recording of these songs, Turiya Sings, was released exclusively on cassette in 1982 for the students of the ashram. In addition to Alice’s voice and organ, the recording included synthesizers, strings, and sound effects. In 2004, Alice’s son and producer of this record, Ravi Coltrane, found mixes he’d never heard before of just Alice’s voice and her Wurlitzer organ. He knew this is what the world had to hear.

“In this setting I felt the greatest sense of her passion, devotion and exaltation in singing these songs in praise of the Supreme. In that moment, I knew people needed to hear Turiya Sings in this context.” Ravi continues, “as her son, growing up and hearing her playing these songs on the very same Wurlitzer you hear on this recording, I recognize this choice maintains the purity and essence of Alice’s musical and spiritual vision. In many ways, this new clarity brings these chants to an even higher place.”

The opening chords of Kirtan: Turiya Sings are a curtain opening into a realm of spirituality and devotion that only Alice Coltrane could conjure. This album is not jazz–it is not improvised. It is intentional, devotional, and spiritual. This music, sung in Sanskrit, is spacious and large, Alice’s voice has weight and power, her organ playing rock-solid, pulsing, a cauldron of musical influences you can hear from her life.

Ravi Coltrane summarizes the musical importance of this album best:

“On this album, your ear will be turned toward the sound of the blues, to gospel, to the Black American church, often combined with the Carnatic singing style of southern India. You will hear beautiful harmonies influenced by Alice’s Detroit/Motown roots, her bebop roots, John Coltrane’s impact, and her absorption of European classical music, particularly that of her favorite: Igor Stravinsky. Yet, at the same time, this is functional music. Its purpose is, with light and love, to praise the names of the Supreme. On this album, your heart and spirit will be turned toward divine inspiration and appreciation.”

Kirtan: Turiya Sings was mixed by Steve Genewick and mastered by Kevin Reeves from original 24-track masters. This is the same team that worked with producer Ravi Coltrane on Alice Coltrane’s last album, 2004’s Translinear Light. The lacquers were cut by Ryan D. Smith at Sterling Sound and pressed at Furnace. The album will be available on vinyl, CD, digital download and streaming, as well as hi-res streaming in studio quality sound, and can be pre-ordered here.

He initially teased the track on Soundcloud, and it sent fans into a frenzy as they clamored for a wide release. Flaunting sharp lyrics over an 8-bit beat, it showcases his inimitable flow and otherworldly melodies. He glides over this production towards an incisively catchy refrain. It also follows hot on the heels of fan favorites such as Forgot It and Super Pain.

Thus far, Guwop Reign has eclipsed 5 million-plus Soundcloud streams and earned glowing endorsements from tastemakers with Lyrical Lemonade crowning him one of 2020’s standout stars. Last year, he rolled through with a string of anthems, including Demeanor. Additionally, his fan favorite song Mulan 2 raked in a ton of streams. Lyrical Lemonade proclaimed, The Atlanta native’s massive range shines and he is able to easily manipulate pitch and cadence to keep his songs continually interesting and simultaneously sonically pleasing. Meanwhile, The Daily Chiefers commented, Atlanta’s own Guwop Reign is in the fast lane and firing off nothing but bangers in 2020.

Music encodes life’s most important lessons. Beneath the beats and between the bars, Guwop Reign confronts the struggles of youth, depression, anxiety, friends-turned-into-foes, and relationships with a level of wisdom and perspective that belies his 16 years. The Boston-born and Atlanta-based rapper flows with the intensity of an open wound as he tightly grips each melody. Streamed nearly four million times on Soundcloud, Reign built an avid fan base with one independent anthem after another including Money Talk, Fly, and No Love plus tastemaker praise from Lyrical Lemonade and Elevator Magazine. Landing a deal with Galactic Records in partnership with Republic Records the young prodigy released his single Mulan 2 in 2020 and is prepared to make his full-length debut for the label. Drawing on diverse influences such as Tupac, Future, Young Thug, and Rihanna, he asserts himself as a melodic hip-hop force ready for the spotlight.

Lovers to friends

Why do all good things come to an end?

Grammy winning singer/songwriter Nelly Furtado signaled a new era in pop music by fusing her multicultural musical heritage and unabashedly honest lyrical style with trip-hop for a bold approach that resonates to this day. Today, “All Good Things (Come To An End),” the fifth single from her third studio album, Loose, which is certified gold or platinum in 26 countries, transitions from an introspectively lush dreamscape to a dance-friendly fusion that retains the feel of its timeless sentiment with a new remix from gold- and platinum-awarding winning German production duo Quarterhead (Ofenbach, Robin Schulz, Sabrina Carpenter, Dan+Shay). Written by Nelly Furtado, Chris Martin, Danja and Timbaland, the song remains a fan favorite with more than 250 million streams globally across digital service providers, according to Universal Music Artists app

Quarterhead — multi-instrumentalists Janik Riegert and Josh Tapen — have created a new version of “All Good Things (Come To An End).” The Nelly Furtado x Quarterhead Remix EP (IGA/UMe) also includes three edits (Extended and Instrumentals).

“‘All Good Things’ was one of the main pop anthems we grew up with,” said Janik Riegert. “Nelly, Timbaland and Chris Martin are the people behind the soundtrack of our very first heartbreaks, best road trips and longest nights. To work on this project wasn’t just a remix for us.”

Josh Tapen adds: “To work with this legacy was an amazing experience. We hope that the new mix between Nelly’s world and our vibe brings back a lot of amazing memories and helps to create as many new ones!”

GALANTIS, DAVID GUETTA & LITTLE MIX RELEASE “HEARTBREAK ANTHEM”

EXPLOSIVE COLLABORATIVE SINGLE & MUSIC VIDEO OUT NOW VIA BIG BEAT RECORDS

WATCH “HEARTBREAK ANTHEM” VIDEO

STREAM “HEARTBREAK ANTHEM

Internationally-acclaimed collaborative project Galantis, superstar DJ/producer David Guetta & global pop superstars Little Mix have joined forces for new single “Heartbreak Anthem” – available now via Big Beat Records. The explosive collaboration arrives alongside a striking music video directed by Samuel Douek, who most recently teamed up with Little Mix for their buzzworthy “Confetti” visual last month. Contrary to its title, “Heartbreak Anthem” proves a declaration of resilience – fusing the jaunty productions of the powerhouse producers with the impeccable harmonies of the world’s biggest girl band.

“We’ve been working on ‘Heartbreak Anthem’ for over a year now! It started with just the chord progression at a studio in London right before the pandemic. As many collaborations have gone in these times, it was a remote work in progress for months, with stems sent back and forth from London to Los Angeles to Stockholm to Paris. We’d been talking with David about working together for a long time, and having Little Mix and their unique, strong vocals has made this one really special. Feels great to finally get this out into the world!” – Christian Karlsson (Galantis).

ABOUT GALANTIS:

Setting a new standard for songwriting in dance music, Galantis is a collaborative project led by Christian Karlsson (aka Bloodshy, one-third of Miike Snow). Galantis’ debut album Pharmacy reached No. 1 on the Billboard Dance album chart on the strength of RIAA gold certified single “Peanut Butter Jelly” and 2x platinum certified smash “Runaway (U & I)” – the latter of which earned GRAMMY nominations for “Best Dance Recording” and “Best Remixed Recording” – while 2017’s sophomore album The Aviary (featuring platinum certified single “No Money”) saw a top 10 debut in 23 countries. Most recently, the third Galantis album Church featured the chart-topping single “Faith” with country music icon Dolly Parton featuring Mr. Probz, which saw a #1 debut on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Chart before quickly reaching #1 on the Dance/Mix Show Airplay Chart where it remained for 5 weeks. Galantis has received over 4 billion cumulative worldwide streams, and over 1.5 billion video views to date. 

The story of Galantis started back in 2009. Working as Bloodshy, Karlsson’s songwriting collaborations have included MadonnaKylie MinogueKaty Perry and Britney Spears (who’s “Toxic” earned a GRAMMY for “Best Dance Recording”). This collaborative nature led to the birth of the Galantis project which had its live debut at 2014’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and has continued on years later as one of dance music’s most dynamic and in-demand live performers.

ABOUT DAVID GUETTA:

There are artists and entertainers who achieve stardom and popularity, but few have the influence and endurance to redraw borders between genres and reshape the industry’s dynamics. In 2009, “When Love Takes Over,” the first single from his breakthrough album One Love hit #1 in the UK and the Guetta-produced Black Eyed Peas song “I Gotta Feeling” became a worldwide hit, topping the charts in 17 countries. Over the decade since, Guetta’s success has been off the charts. Globally, he’s racked up over 50 million record sales, whereas his total number of streams is over 10 billion. He has received numerous Platinum and Gold certifications, was named EDM Power Player by Billboard and won two GRAMMY Awards out of six nominations. Besides his hard-won DJ skills, he is prolific in the studio, working with superstar artists like MadonnaRihannaLady GagaSnoop DoggMartin GarrixUsherSiaJohn LegendNicki MinajSean PaulKelly RowlandAviciiNe-YoAkon and more.  His seventh studio album titled 7, included huge electronic pop tracks like “2U” with Justin Bieber, “Flames” with Sia, “Don’t Leave Me Alone” with Anne-Marie, “Goodbye” with Jason DeruloNicki Minaj and Willy William and “Say My Name” with J Balvin and Bebe Rexha plus a second disc of underground dance tracks, recorded under Guetta’s Jack Back alias. With his wide-reaching and game-changing approach, he is more than just a DJ and producer: he’s made dance music reach the mainstream, fused urban, electronic and pop music into new popular genres, and managed to stay on top of the game for decades.

ABOUT LITTLE MIX:

With over 60 million records sold, 10 billion global streams, over 5 billion YouTube views, 5 platinum albums, 5 UK number 1 singles, and over 2 million tickets sold Little Mix are officially the world’s biggest girl band. Since forming 10 years ago Little Mix have been an unstoppable force in British pop music. The recent album Confetti gave them their 6th top 5 album and included the number 1 single “Sweet Melody” which has just reached over 200 million streams worldwide. VEVO crowned them the Most Watched UK Act Of 2020 and the UK charts recently classed them as the Best-Selling Girl Group in UK History based on track sales. 2021 saw Little Mix make BRIT Award history as the first girl band ever to win Best British Group in its 43-year history.

Zedd x Griff release new single – “Inside out”

Today, GRAMMY® award-winning global superstar Zedd releases his brand-new single entitled “Inside Out” featuring rising U.K. singer-songwriter, Griff.

The upbeat, feel-good track, features Zedd’s signature style that has made him the critically acclaimed artist/DJ/producer he is today. Paired with Griff’s incredible vocals, “Inside Out” is poised to be another one of Zedd’s standout tracks. The song is available now at all digital retail providers via Interscope Records.

Zedd says about “Inside Out”, “I started working on ‘Inside Out’ roughly a year and a half ago and I’m incredibly proud for it to finally see the light of day. We are in such a tense state of the world right now; I feel like this song can provide people with a much-needed sense of hope. I always strive to push myself to try new things, musically. With that in mind, this song feels very new but also familiar at the same time. A huge thank you to Griff for bringing such an intense level of emotion to ‘Inside Out’ with her beautiful voice!!”

Griff also notes, “This song for me is about any relationship in your life that’s worth holding onto, whether its platonic or romantic. I feel like these days everything is about how things look on the outside, and so the idea of loving someone from the inside first, feels like quite an important thing to say right now. It’s so surreal for Zedd to want a new artist like me to sing on this track, and I’m just super grateful and excited to be involved in this.”

Click HERE to watch the lyric video.

In addition to the release of “Inside Out,” Zedd will also be participating in The MDA Kevin Hart Kids Telethon, an event benefitting the Muscular Dystrophy Association and Help From the Hart Charity. The event will be streamed live on October 24 at 8pm ET on LOL Network platforms including YouTube and Pluto TV, plus Facebook, TikTok, Triller, and Twitch. The event will feature entertainment, comedy, musical performances, and MDA’s Let’s Play For A Cure gaming elements.

The marathon stream will kick off at 4pm ET on October 24 with Zedd going live at 7PM ET on his Twitch channel. This will run simultaneously with The MDA Kevin Hart Kids Telethon.

About Zedd

Multi-platinum, GRAMMY® Award-winning artist/DJ/producer Zedd made his debut with “Clarity” after signing with Interscope in 2012 and has been breaking down barriers surrounding music genres ever since. Throughout his career, Zedd has worked with a diverse range of artists to create hits, including Foxes on “Clarity” (which earned Zedd a 2014 GRAMMY® “Best Dance Recording”), Hayley Williams on RIAA platinum-certified hit, “Stay The Night” (which racked up more than 400 million streams), and Selena Gomez on the platinum-certified track, “I Want You To Know,” which spent four weeks at #1 on Billboard’s “Hot Dance/Electronic Songs” chart. He’s also collaborated with Alessia Cara on their hit single “Stay” which held the #1 spot at Top 40 radio for six consecutive weeks and earned Zedd his second GRAMMY® Award nomination, and with Maren Morris and Grey on the monster hit “The Middle,” which earned Zedd is second #1 at Top 40 radio. Digitally, the song has amassed over 1 billion streams and earned Zedd three GRAMMY® nominations including “Record Of The Year,” “Song Of The Year,” and “Best Pop Duo or Group Performance.”

About Griff

Griff is well on her way to becoming the next face of British Pop—and a next-generation type of pop star, at that. Born to Chinese and Jamaican parents just out of Watford, U.K., Griff began making music by borrowing her brother’s logic: teaching herself how to produce songs secretly from her classmates (many of whom only found out what Griff was up to when they heard her on Annie Mac). Hailed by Vogue as a “multicultural, multi-hyphenated, and multi-talented…utterly unique teenager” and by NME who called her “A phenomenon…the teenage boss about to take charge of pop,” Griff’s musical creativity draws no boundaries. Aside from making her own beats, sewing her own clothes, and shooting a music video on her iPhone under lockdown, Griff’s raw and vulnerable lyrics also prove she is mature beyond her years. With songs about friendship. (“1,000,000 X Better”), mental health (“Say It Again”), those stinging formative breakups (“Forgive Myself”) and the importance of family (“Good Stuff,” a moving account of Griff’s family fostering children), Griff manages to draw from her own difficult experiences and turn them into something uniformly positive making her particular model of bedroom-pop fitting for a legion of young girls to follow.

I ❤️ Beirut

By Justin Lyons

Mika announced Wednesday that his “I ❤️ Beirut” concert, which was live-streamed Sept. 19 on his YouTube channel, raised more than €1 million for the people of Lebanon.

An explosion at a Beirut warehouse on Aug. 4 killed more than 200 and injured more than 5,000.

Ticket sales, sponsors and public donations all contributed to the large sum that will be split between the Lebanese Red Cross and Save the Children.

Tickets were purchased in 120 different countries via Ticketmaster, the most in the ticketing giant’s history. Donations also poured in from 48 different countries via a GoFundMe page.

The show featured megastars like Salma Hayek, Danna Paola, Rufus Wainwright, Kylie, Mashrou Leila, Louane, Etel Adnan, Fanny Ardant and Laura Pausini. It has also picked up interest from major television stations across the world.

Mika joined Georges Kettaneh, the secretary general of the Lebanese Red Cross, and Kevin Watkins, CEO of Save the Children UK, on a video call Wednesday to make the announcement. He thanked everyone who helped the fundraiser cross the €1 million mark.

“I also wanted to say how amazing this statement of solidarity for the situation in Beirut has been, with tickets for the stream selling to over 120 different countries around the world,” Mika said. “This has been a project that was born out of and made possible by love, and a huge amount of collaboration with friends and many new friends made in the process.”

The certified gold and platinum artist was born in Beirut and is now celebrated around the world.

Kettaneh also thanked donors, saying the Lebanese Red Cross would continue to use the funds to support the people of Beirut.

“The people of Beirut face a long road to recovery, with this generosity and the continued support we have received from around the globe, we can continue to stand alongside them for as long we are needed,” Kettaneh said.

Watkins also chimed in to say Save the Children would work to help children and families affected by the explosion.

“All donations will be going toward our emergency response efforts in Lebanon, which include weather proofing damaged homes, supporting vulnerable and displaced families with food and cash grants, and providing ongoing psychological support for children and families,” Watkins said.

Donations can still be made to the campaign’s GoFundMe by clicking right here. The goal of £150,000 has already been passed, and it is closing in on £200,000.

Today, singer-songwriter Londin Thompson makes her formal debut with “Wish It Would Rain” on Republic Records.

In April, Londin shared a snippet of “Wish It Would Rain” on TikTok, and it sent fans into a frenzy. On the track, dreamy guitar bubbles beneath vivid lyrics such as “Got invited to a party. I don’t like what I’m wearing.
