George O’Hanlon – How Are You Feeling

Rising UK singer/songwriter George O’Hanlon makes his 2022 debut with his new single “How Are You Feeling?” available now via Harvest Records. Listen to “How Are You Feeling?HERE.

The single finds inspiration from rock icons like Radiohead, Springsteen, Nirvana and Slowdive. Throughout the track, intricate guitar work combined with an uplifting chorus makes it one you’ll want to give a listen to. “How Are You Feeling” also comes as the introduction to George’s full touring band on a single.

As a songwriter, George is able to showcase his true talents in the single. He states, “The song is about how you find your path as a person, especially during your late teens early 20’s, and the ups-and-downs that come with that. To me it’s a really positive song about people finding their way.”

About George O’Hanlon

Gaining practice through performing in the college circuit, George O’Hanlon has been perfecting his craft for quite some time. Working on his music by performing and writing for the past few years, George launched his career in 2021 with his debut EP, The Storm. While his musical inspirations range from artists like Bob Dylan, Jeff Buckley and Thom Yorke, George’s music has natural literary soul. He captives his fans by referencing his own life experiences, outlining them in new perceptions.

While rising as a budding talent in the UK music scene, George has gained affirmation from Abi McCarthy at BBC Introducing and Jack Saunders at Radio 1. You can find George typically performing at grassroots venues, while he toured the UK last September with his band. They traveled to small venues around the UK together. Noting the experience, George exclaimed, “We spent hours with four of us crammed in a car with all our gear. The tough bits are service stations at 3 in in the morning and things like that but playing the shows made it all worth it.”

You can catch George performing at his first US show at Austin’s South by Southwest Festival.

The Weeknd – Dawn FM

The Weeknd’s surprise album Dawn FM is leading the charts around the globe. Debuting at #1 Apple Music US and in 125 countries, and #1 Spotify US and worldwide. Dawn FM accumulates over 500 million streams to date. Listen to Dawn FM [XO/Republic Records] HERE.

Despite the release of the album coming suddenly, Dawn FM has been a smash hit. Dawn FM may just snatch up the spot as The Weeknd’s best album thus far. The single “Sacrifice” came out at #1 on Spotify US and global, while the collection The Highlights, too, ranks among the Billboard Top 10 at #6. Having two albums rank in the top ten is conventionally unheard of, a resounding accomplishment for The Weeknd.

Playing off the theme of an afterlife-esque radio station network, Dawn FM transforms viewers to a new universe. The abrupt announcement of the album ultimately worked in the favor of The Weeknd, with Dawn FM now ranking as his second global #1 album during the pandemic, following the renowned After Hours was released in March 2020, featuring the #1 All Time Hot 100 hit “Blinding Lights.”

Dawn FM has gained quick critical acclaim, registering The Weeknd’s leading aggregate score on Metacritic at ’88.’ Variety spoke on the album, stating, “After Hours has resonated for nearly two years after its release, and in the face of another phase of a daunting pandemic, it seems that Dawn FM – possibly The Weeknd’s best and most fully realized album to date – will help carry fans through this one as well.” Rolling Stone, too, raved about Dawn FM, rating it “4-out-of-5 stars, The Weeknd focuses those interstellar ambitions to anoint us with the most enchanting music to the portal through purgatory.”

Dawn FM sees features from Tyler, the Creator, Lil Wayne, Quincy Jones, Oneohtrix Point Never and Jim Carrey.

If you haven’t listened to this album yet, you are truly missing out on a sonic, one-of-a-experience by the superstar himself, The Weeknd.

LOLA YOUNG’S NEW EP – AFTER MIDNIGHT

British star on-the-rise Lola Young’s brand-new EP, After Midnight, is out now on Capitol Records. Listen here. The four-track EP is accompanied by an official music video for the track “Bad Game,” which can be viewed here.

Previously sharing tracks “Blue” and “Pill or a Lullaby,” Young releases After Midnight in full today, showing herself at her most open and honest. The record tells the story of one night in Young’s life, tracing the hours between midnight and 5 a.m. Young moves from feeling confident and in control to gradually becoming more vulnerable and, eventually, entering a manic state of mind.

The EP is coupled with a beautifully shot short film due out imminently. Directed by Dumas Haddad, it features Young and a love interest, as well as spoken word accompaniment written for the film by the poet Thea Gajik. The film is set in an apartment at different stages of the night, showing her in varying mental states and winding its way through the story of the EP; with Young leaving nothing on the table.

Describing the EP, Lola Young says, “My thoughts, my worries, my past lovers and my present ones too, my guilt, my fears, my dreams, wishes and all the crazy ass thoughts I have when the sun rises and I can’t sleep for shit. After midnight. The truest form of me.”

Last month, she played a sold-out show at Camden Assembly in London. Young will perform at numerous summer festivals and tour the U.K. with Dermot Kennedy in September. View itinerary here.

Hailed as “a star on the rise” by ELLE UK, the 20-year-old artist is fiercely independent and uncompromising. As a live performer she is uncompromising – clearly showing the potential, spirit and individuality that makes her one of the UK’s most exciting new talents. Her work to date – the personal and powerful singles “Bad Tattoo,” “Ruin My Make Up” and “Woman,” her debut collection of tracks, Intro, and second release, the Renaissance EP – received support across the board from the likes of Billboard, Atwood Magazine, Wonderland, British Vogue, British GQ and CLASH Magazine.

Disney+ Star Charlie Bushnell Q×A

By: Ally Brewster

Charlie Bushnell is an up-and-coming actor that stars as Bobby Cañero-Reed in the Disney+ original series Diary of a Future President. The Disney+ original series produced by Gina Rodriguez’s production company I Can and I Will Productions is told through creator and producer Elena’s narration as written in her diary. The series follows the daily events of Elena’s life and her interactions with friends and family. She lives with her older brother, Bobby (portrayed by Charlie); and mother, Gabi. Elena has a strong desire to become a president of the United States, which is made visible through flash-forwards to her political campaign as an adult. All 10 episodes of the highly-anticipated Second Season is available on Disney+ to watch now.

We had the opportunity to ask Charlie about acting on the show and balancing his acting life with his personal, high school life:

You decided that you wanted to act while binging Stranger Things. What about the tv show inspired you to start acting? What other television and TV shows do you look to for inspiration?

Yeah! Stranger Things created such an extraordinary world, and I just fell in love with everything about it – the characters, the story, etc.… It was so unique, and I’d never seen anything like it before. All the main characters are kids around my age, so I could really relate to them. For some reason, even though I had never thought about it before, it just hit me that I could do that too… and now I’m here! It’s been a pretty wild ride so far, and I appreciate every minute of it. Another one of my all-time favorite shows is The Office.

Has it been difficult to balance high school and acting? How do you deal with the busy schedule and still maintain the activities you’ve previously enjoyed?

It can definitely be a lot, but I make it a priority to always create time for myself and relax, even when life is crazy busy. When we filmed season 2, it was during the school year, and as students, we had to do at least 3 hours of school a day on set, so we basically had no breaks besides lunch, lol. When we weren’t filming, we were doing school, and when we weren’t doing school, we were filming. But I LOVE what I do, and even though it can be quite stressful at times, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

What has been your favorite part of acting in Diary of a Future President?

I literally cannot think of one negative thing or experience I’ve had while working on this show, so every part is my favorite part, haha… but if I had to choose, definitely the people. I have made some life-long friends on this show. We all get along so well and always have an absolute blast together on set. I love my Diary family so much! ❤️

Where do you hope your character Bobby Cañero-Reed goes in this next season? Can you give any teasers for what’s next for him in the new season?

In season 2, Bobby is in high school and has everything all planned out. He’s looking forward to joining the varsity tennis team and getting closer to Liam; however, things don’t exactly go as planned. As expected, after entering high school, Bobby’s world really opens up, and he meets a lot of really cool new people.

Diary of a Future President is one of your biggest roles. Has it taught you anything new about acting and the business? What have you taken away from the experience?

Well, Bobby is really my only role (so far), haha… But yes! I have learned so much while working on this show. As an actor, watching pros like Gina Rodriguez, Selenis Leyva, Michael Weaver, Jessica Marie Garcia, and others just do their thing is like the ultimate master class in acting. Everyone on this show is so incredibly talented; it’s insane. But I’ve also learned so much about the filmmaking process as a whole and just how much goes into it. When you watch the final product of a movie or show, you really only see the actor. Still, something I’ve really opened my eyes to while working on this show is that literally every single person in the cast and on the crew – from the lighting department to the camera operators to HMU to wardrobe, etc.… plays such a crucial part in the making of a TV show or movie. It would not be possible without every single one of them—huge shoutout to our Diary crew. You guys are the best! ❤️

About Charlie Bushnell:

Los Angeles-native Charlie Bushnell was born into an artistic family and was always destined to be in entertainment. The son of a musician, grandson of a jazz singer and nephew to a film and television actor, at just 10 years old he started making movies with his friends.

While binge-watching “Stranger Things”, he made the decision to pursue acting. In the beginning, Bushnell self-trained by memorizing his favorite film monologues. He participated in school plays and eventually started taking professional acting classes at John Rosenfeld Studios, Ruskin Academy, amongst others.

Auditions quickly followed and he soon landed the role of Bobby Cañero-Reed in the Disney+ coming-of-age comedy series Diary of a Future President, executive produced by Gina Rodriguez through her production company, I Can and I Will.

The series follows 13-year old Cuban-American Elena in her journey to become the future president of the United States while navigating the ups-and-downs of middle school. Bobby is Elena’s sweet and mischievous older brother, now a freshman in high school.

Presently, you will see Charlie reprise his role as Bobby in the upcoming season on Disney+. You will see him grow and blossom as he navigates high school.

Off screen, Charlie, currently a junior in high school, loves playing tennis, camping, playing guitar, going to the beach, volunteering at a food shelter and enjoying time with his family and friends.

JACQUEES’ RELEASES – NOT JUS ANYBODY FEATURING FUTURE

Dropping what might be his biggest collaboration yet, rising superstar and multi-platinum singer Jacquees serves up a brand new single entitled “Not Jus Anybody” featuring Future today. Get it here.

As a stark piano drips in the background, he immediately captivates with his signature show stopping vocal range on point. Meanwhile, GRAMMY® Award-winning multi-platinum hip-hop titan Future rolls through with otherworldly rhymes and a hazy melody. The track unites two Atlanta forces together once more, and the results immediately overpower in the best way. The music video, directed by Jon J, is available to watch on all streaming channels along with broadcast partners BET Jams, BET Soul, MTV Live and MTVU. Watch here.

Jacquees recently shared “Bed Friend” featuring Queen Naija. Right out of the gate, it racked up over 2 million Spotify streams. HYPEBEAST named it among the “Best New Tracks,” and Vibe raved, “This composition is one that has bedroom burner written all over it.”

Just prior, his single “Freaky As Me” featuring Mulatto eclipsed 2.8 million Spotify streams and 2.1 million views on the video.

Last month, Jacquees took the stage for a performance at the 6th Annual Black Music Honors hosted by Loni Love on Bounce TV. Jacquees delivered a blockbuster tribute performance of honoree Ginuwine’s hit “So Anxious.” Jacquees joined Cece Winans, Montell Jordan, Chrisette Michele, Zacardi Cortez, and more. In advance, he also appeared on FOX’s Good Day DC.

As a testament to Jacquees’ unprecedented success and reign at the top of R&B, the talented singer has achieved several milestones: his debut album 4275 is RIAA gold-certified and has a string of top-selling hits including “B.E.D.”(double-platinum) and “At The Club” featuring Dej Loaf (platinum) and “Your Peace” featuring Lil Baby (gold).

Everything continues to build towards his anticipated next album, coming soon.
