half•alive – Make of It

Long Beach based trio half•alive released their new single “Make of It” along with the music video via RCA Records. Watch HERE. “Make of It” is written by half•alive and OJIVOLTA (Kanye West, Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber, Halsey, Jon Bellion) and produced by OJIVOLTA. The video is directed by Emma Portner.

Josh Taylor from half•alive says, “as always, there’s so many stories that went into the making of this song. writing, production, etc. but there was one moment of clarity in the writing process one night that felt like the crux to unlock this very personal story of mine which became Make of It. That moment happened when our producer Mark (of OJIVOLTA) stared at me during one of our writing sessions & abruptly asked “do you ever get mad? if so, would a half•alive fan who doesn’t speak English be able to tell if you were just from your tone?” After thinking about the question for a while, I came to realize that there was an anger-sized hole missing in our songs. There were stories that I was restricting myself from writing because I wanted them to be perfectly processed, with happy endings to tie everything together. but sometimes the unprocessed, unhindered emotion is what the song needs. when that was realized, i turned on my mental faucet of unfiltered anger, 45 minutes later, the song was done.”

“Make of It” follows previously released tracks “Summerland,” “Time 2,” and “What’s Wrong” which came out earlier this year. “What’s Wrong,” which was “Most Added” at Alt Radio around its launch, had garnered over 12.2 million streams worldwide. half•alive also performed it on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! last month. Check it out HERE.

Additionally, the band is wrapping up a run of headlining west coast shows with a stop at The Wiltern in Los Angeles tonight and Life is Beautiful Music & Art Festival this Sunday. Next week, half•alive will be hitting the road with Twenty One Pilots on their almost sold out “Takeøver Tour” which starts in Denver, CO on September 22nd. Find the tour schedule HERE.

About half•alive

The music of half•alive breathes, evolves, grows, and changes alongside the lives of the Long Beach trio—Josh Taylor [vocals], Brett Kramer [drums], and J Tyler Johnson [bass]. half•alive officially came to life on the 2017 3 EP, which sparked a palpable buzz on the strength of “The Fall” and “Awake At Night”. Over the course of the next year, they crafted what became their massive breakout “still feel.” which has been RIAA certified Gold, rocketed into the Top 10 at Alt Radio and has over 276 million worldwide streams to date. The video organically surpassed the 10 million mark within two months as the song garnered acclaim from NPR’s coveted “All Songs Considered” and more. The trio sold out their formal debut headlining tour in 2019  which included 2 sold out shows at The Fonda Theatre in LA. The tour also included stops at major music festivals including Lollapalooza, Outside Lands and Bumbershoot. Later that year the band made their late night television debut with a very special performance of “still feel.” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. Check out the incredible and unique performance HERE. They also performed “Runaway” on The Late Late Show with James Corden. In August 2019, they released their debut album Now, Not Yet which has amassed over 472 million worldwide audio streams to date. half•alive was named YouTube’s Artist on the Rise and their live Vevo DSCVR performances of “RUNAWAY” and “arrow” showcase their incredible creative artistry. Last year, half•alive released their EP “in Florescence,” an audio and visual project that included orchestral arrangements of 4 tracks off their critically acclaimed debut album Now, Not Yet as well as videos for 3 of the 4 songs to accompany them.

Jesse McCartney – Kiss The World Goodbye

Jesse McCartney reveals new single and video, Kiss the World Goodbye, as well as announces fall tour dates.

Today, multi-platinum recording artist, singer, songwriter, and actor Jesse McCartney released his new anthemic single and video for Kiss The World Goodbye off his upcoming sixth studio album New Stage, due out Fall 2021. Representing a new chapter in his life, New Stage is set to mark his first full-length album in seven years. The video for Kiss The World Goodbye premiered on McCartney’s YouTube page at midnight last night. Later this year, McCartney will embark on a 2021 tour, in support of the forthcoming album, with pre-sale tickets available for purchase starting later today. 

Inspired by his future wife, actress Katie Peterson, the single reflects their bond where they are ready to take on anything and everything. McCartney shares, “If this last year has taught us anything, it’s to hold our loved ones close. I hope my fans can overcome the fear and anxiety that has come with this pandemic, and if it helps, they can jump in the car with a friend or significant other, roll the windows down, blast this song, and just drive! This song is intended to inspire, even when you have the weight of the world on your shoulders. And when you have that special someone you can rely on, someone who can share in the good times and bad, it really gives you the sense that the two of you can take on anything.”

Kiss The World Goodbye is written by Jesse McCartney, Carah Faye (of Shiny Toy Guns and co-writer of Stay the Night performed by Zedd & Hayley Williams), and Morgan Taylor Reid (Grammy-nominated producer who has previously worked with Marshmello, Chromeo, Backstreet Boys, American Authors, MAX, etc.). The song follows last year’s singles Yours, an introspective look at the different roles he’s played throughout his life, and Friends, an homage to the people in one’s life who become chosen family.

Directed by brother & sister duo, Maxx & Madison, the music video is themed “us against the world,” and inspired by Bonnie & Clyde meets 1996’s Romeo & Juliet, co-starring McCartney’s fiancé Katie Peterson.

This November, McCartney is set to launch his tour in Austin, TX hitting over 20 cities before ending in Los Angeles. Pre-sale tickets go on sale today, July 21. General tickets go on sale starting July 23rd. There will also be VIP packages available for purchase. Additional details to come.

About Jesse McCartney

Since the start of his career, New York-born and Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, artist, and actor Jesse McCartney has built a catalog of instantly recognizable anthems and captivated audiences on the road and on-screen. His first three albums—the platinum-certified Beautiful Soul (2004), Right Where You Want Me (2006), and Departure (2008)—consecutively bowed in the Top 15 of the Billboard Top 200 with the singles Beautiful Soul minted Gold and Leavin’ certified Platinum. Plus, he collaborated with T-Pain on the cross-genre banger Body Language. Meanwhile, SPIN touted In Technicolor as among its “Top 20 Pop Albums of 2014.” Along the way, he performed in arenas alongside the likes of New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys in addition to packing global headline tours and hosting shows for both George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

A sought-after songwriter, he notably wrote the 4x Platinum GRAMMY® Award-nominated Bleeding Love for Leona Lewis. In 2018, the one-off single Better With You racked up over 30 million cumulative streams and paved the way for his fifth offering. Simultaneously, his acting credits grew to include everything from Chernobyl Diaries and Fear The Walking Dead to Alvin and the Chipmunks, and even voicing the character Roxas/Ventus in gamer favorite Kingdom Hearts. Now, he opens up more than ever on his sixth full-length album, due out later this year.

Rival Sons Announce Fall North American Tour

Rival Sons announce a fall headline tour to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of their landmark album, Pressure and Time.

GRAMMY-nominated group Rival Sons will return to the road in North America on the Pressure and Time Tour this fall. The six-week headline run will see the band celebrating the 10th anniversary of their 2011 album, Pressure and Time, by performing the landmark long player live in its entirety. The tour kicks off on September 29 at Culture Room in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and includes stops at legendary venues such as the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, the Riviera Theater in Chicago, The Warfield in San Francisco, The Wiltern in Los Angeles, and comes to a close on November 13 at House of Blues in Anaheim, CA. Most dates of the tour will feature support from Dorothy, with select dates supported by either Reignwolf or Myron Elkins. The official ticket pre-sale launches Wednesday, July 21.

For the first time, Rival Sons will perform their critically acclaimed and cult favorite second full-length album, Pressure & Time, from top to bottom. Upon its arrival in 2011, Pressure and Time garnered the band worldwide recognition and has since amassed over 40 million-plus streams and garnered widespread praise with the BBC affirming it is “simply stuffed with rollicking tunes.”

Last month, Rival Sons lit up Southern California with a two-night livestream event, Rival Sons “Pair of Aces: Live from the historic Catalina Casino on Santa Catalina Island.” They performed their debut LP, Before the Fire [2009], in its entirety on the first night and their self-titled EP, Rival Sons [2010], on the second.

Earlier this year, Rival Sons launched their very own label, Sacred Tongue Recordings, with distribution through Thirty Tigers. The band recently regained the master rights to several of their early releases and will reintroduce them to the world by first remastering their independent full-length debut LP, Before the Fire (2009), and self-titled EP Rival Sons (2010), on all DSPS, CD, and Vinyl – for the first time. They’ve printed up an exclusive run of 1000 copies of both Before the Fire and Rival Sons. Before the Fire will come in an orange splatter variant, while the EP is available in a clear with gold splatter variant. There will also be indie retailer exclusive colorways of each release in translucent orange and crystal clear, respectively. A repressing of Pressure and Time has not been announced but is expected in the coming months.

By looking back, Rival Sons also leap forward again as they continue working on more music and the follow-up to 2019’s Feral Roots, which not only garnered a 2020 GRAMMY Award nomination for Best Rock Album but also yielded a GRAMMY nomination for Best Rock Performance for the top 10 rock track, Too Bad, and features the #1 rock radio single, Do Your Worst. Produced by multi GRAMMY Award-winner Dave Cobb at Nashville’s famed RCA Studio A, and the equally legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Muscle Shoals, AL, Rival Sons’ Feral Roots is available now on all streaming platforms.

Moby to Be Honored at Adopt the Arts

ADOPT THE ARTS TO HONOR MOBY WITH THE SOUND AND VISION AWARD AT 7TH ANNUAL BENEFIT GALA ON MARCH 7, 2019

ADOPT THE ARTS HONORS: MOBY WITH SPECIAL GUESTS!

ADOPT THE ARTS is honored to announce MOBY as the 2019 recipient of the ADOPT THE ARTS SOUND AND VISION AWARD for his contribution to the music and arts industry throughout his lifetime. The musician, artist, activist and author has impacted music lovers for decades, selling more than 20 million of his own records worldwide and playing more than 3,000 concerts throughout his career, wowing fans with his musical genius. MOBY will officially be honored at this year’s benefit gala, ADOPT THE ARTS HONORS: MOBY WITH SPECIAL GUESTS, on March 7, 2019, at THE WILTERN in Los Angeles, with the VIP after-party to be held at THE LINE HOTEL with special guest DJ Shepard Fairey.

The Los Angeles-based charity, ADOPT THE ARTS, co-founded by Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame Inductee and Grammy Award-winning musician MATT SORUM (Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver), activist ABBY BERMAN and founding board member, Golden Globe® Award and Emmy Award-winning actor JANE LYNCH, hosts the annual gala to raise funds to support their mission of preserving arts programs in U.S. public elementary schools. Additional live performances and special guests appearing at the annual gala will be announced in the coming weeks.

“Matt and I have felt that for the long-term sustainability of Adopt the Arts, we needed to broaden our base,” explains ADOPT THE ARTS co-founder Abby Berman. “By moving in another direction musically, we feel that we can appeal to a new audience. Moby seemed like a great first step in that direction for many reasons, including the fact that his music resonates with a broad and wide range of people, he has collaborated with many of the top names in the industry, and he has been using his voice for good for years for many philanthropic causes. I couldn’t think of a more deserving artist to be honored this year.”

ADOPT THE ARTS Chair and Co-founder Matt Sorum adds, “With more than two decades of an incredible music catalog and his journey selling over 20 million records worldwide, Moby has gained International acclaim. Along with his activism for Global Warming and Animal Rights, among other causes he stands for, Moby also advocates Music Therapy as a healer. He continues to lead in music and art, but his vision and voice for a better planet is what helped with our decision at Adopt the Arts to honor him at our event this year.”

ABOUT ADOPT THE ARTS

In collaboration with well-known artists, entrepreneurs, policy makers and the general public, Adopt the Arts is dedicated to improving the academic performance of every child through the gift of making music and art. ATA is focused on developing strategic relationships with educators, administrators and board members to ensure that most underserved schools in the district are identified and ultimately, helped. Co-founders Abby Berman and Matt Sorum believe that it is morally and ethically incumbent upon the public-at-large to foster the creativity, hopes, dreams and imaginations of our children. To date, ATA has donated more than 1000 instruments to 30 LAUSD schools and fully funded the music program at Rosewood Avenue and Westminster Elementary. Each school has been “adopted” by a celebrity or public figure, exposing children to inspirational people who have worked hard for their successes. The interaction between the children and adoptee creates a sense of responsibility and shared commitment for all of those involved.

 

ABOUT MOBY

Moby was one of the most important dance music figures of the early ’90s, helping to bring the music to a mainstream audience both in England and in America. Moby fused rapid disco beats with heavy distorted guitars, punk rhythms and detailed productions that drew equally from pop, dance and movie soundtracks. His music differed from both the cool surface textures of ambient music and the hedonistic world of house music. He remained one of the most recognizable figures within techno.

Born Richard Melville Hall, Moby received his nickname as a child, derived from the fact that Herman Melville, the author of Moby Dick, is his great-great-grand uncle. Moby has been making music since he was 9 years old. He started out playing classical guitar and then went on to play with seminal Connecticut hardcore punk group the Vatican Commandoes when he was 13. He started DJ’ing after leaving college and was a fixture in the late 80’s New York house and hip-hop scenes. 

He released his first single, “Go” in 1991 (listed as one of Rolling Stones’ best records of all time), and has been making albums ever since. His own records have sold more than 20,000,000 copies worldwide, and he has also produced and remixed scores of other artists, including David Bowie, Metallica, The Beastie Boys, Public Enemy, among others. 

He has toured tirelessly, playing well over 3,000 concerts in his career, and has also had his music used in hundreds of different films, including “Heat,” “Any Given Sunday,” “Tomorrow Never Dies” and “The Beach,” among others. 

Moby works closely with a variety of different charities, including The Humane Society and The Institute for Music and Neurologic Function, and in 2007 he launched Mobygratis, which provides free music for independent film makers. Moby is known for his strong political and religious views and for his animal rights activism.

On March 7, 2019, Adopt the Arts Foundation is honored to welcome Moby as our 2019 ATA Honoree for his contribution to the music and arts industry throughout his lifetime. This will be an amazing night with live performances and special guests.

ABOUT SHEPARD FAIREY

In 1989, while at Rhode Island School of Design studying for his Bachelor of Fine Art in Illustration (which he earned in 1992), Shepard Fairey created the “Andre the Giant has a Posse” sticker that later evolved into the OBEY GIANT art campaign. In 2008, his portrait of then-Democratic candidate Barack Obama became an internationally recognized emblem of hope. Since then, Fairey has painted nearly 100 public murals, become one of the most sought- after and provocative artists in the world, and changed the way people converse about art and view the urban landscape.

James Bay Unveils Acoustic Version of “Just For Tonight”

Three-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated and BRIT Award-winning multiplatinum singer-songwriter James Bay shares an acoustic version of his latest single “Just For Tonight” today.

Continuing a long tradition of soulful and stirring acoustic anthems, the troubadour stripped the song down to its essentials: just guitar and vocals. This sparse arrangement illuminates the power of his instantly recognizable voice and emotionally charged lyrics.

Recently Bay released the official video for the track, featuring behind the scenes looks at life out on the road. Check out the full video for “Just For Tonight” here.

Next up, he resumes the “Electric Light” Tour in North America on March 3rd in Nashville, TN at the legendary Ryman Auditorium, hitting major markets across the U.S., including two nights at New York’s The Beacon Theater on March 12th & 13th and The Wiltern in Los Angeles on March 25th.

Check out the remaining dates here.

Within the past year alone, he has continued to set stages ablaze worldwide. Joined by show judge and legendary singer Alicia Keys, he ignited a fierce and fiery duet of “Us” on the Season Finale of NBC’s The Voice. Watch it HERE. Additionally, he earned the coveted fandom of Taylor Swift after he covered her smash “Delicate, and she approved of the cover via twitter. Finally, he brought the house down at BBC Radio 1’s “Big Weekend” at home across the pond, teaming up with Shawn Mendes for “Mercy” and “Let It Go.” In case you missed it, view HERE. This is all after recently appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and more. Not to mention last night he opened up for The Rolling Stones in London at Twickenham Stadium and joined Mick Jagger onstage for a duet of “Beast of Burden.”  BAY is also featured on blues legend Buddy Guy’s 2018  album The Blues Is Alive And Well on the new song “Blue No More.”

Composed in East London’s Baltic Studios, Bay co-wrote and co-produced Electric Light with longtime friend and collaborator Jon Green and brought onboard Paul Epworth [Adele, Florence and The Machine] to add final production elements to the record. “Wild Love” has already nearly 30 million Spotify streams and its official music video co-stars Natalia Dyer of Stranger Things. Watch the “Wild Love” music video here. “Pink Lemonade” has also raised its hand as a standout and features an “almost” intergalactic music video with a heartwarming twist. See the official “Pink Lemonade” music video here!  In addition, his anthem of unity “Us” has touched hearts across the country and its beautiful video has already reached over 16 million views. Check out the music video here! Most recently “Slide” has been pulling at hearts with its simplicity and message, see video here. Across the globe Bay has earned widespread critical acclaim from NME, Forbes, Harpers Bazaar, Time, GQ UK, Rolling Stone, People, Clash, Billboard, and performed on Saturday Night Live and Late Night with Seth Meyers.

THE CHAINSMOKERS AT THE WILTERN

By Max Mason × Vaughn Lowery

Tonight, American Airlines and Mastercard presented The Chainsmokers (consisting of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart)
at The Wiltern in Koreatown LA. The event was easily accessible via Metro LA [subway/trains] and ride-sharing apps. It was truly a whimsical experience coupled with pyrotechnics and special effects. Upon entrance, VIP guests were provided oversized glow sticks alongside of gift bags. The venue exhibited eye-catching architecture both inside and out. After gaining access, rewarded guests quickly made their way to various open bar stations sprinkled throughout the complex. Small bites in conjunction with numerous step and repeat banners constantly kept us alert with a plethora of blinking lights. The overall execution was an EDM fan’s dream and encapsulated the innate energy of the electronica genre. Their set was absolutely phenomenal, performing crowd favorites like “Closer” and “Don’t Let Me Down.”

With the roar of their recent sold-out UK arena tour still echoing in their ears and more than one billion streams under their belts, The Kooks reach to claim their place in the Great British Songbook with Let’s Go SunshineIt’s a bold long player that distils their timeless sound into its purest form while pushing it forward into a more expansive and mature space. It’s as moving, energizing and timelessly melodic record and incisive in its portrait of modern British urban life. The heart and soul of the record lies in its hymns of lost innocence, fading relationships and the process of break-up and recovery. It’s the sound of an ambitious, confident band stepping out and making a statement with their definitive album. Let’s Go Sunshine sees the band cement their status as true bastions of British guitar pop and take their rightful place at the top table next to the celebrated bands that influenced them in their infancy, over a decade ago.

Discussing the process behind creating the album, lead singer Luke says: This one was about defining who we are, we were asking the questions. It was a fractured start, we went into the studio in 2015 continuing down the path we set out on our last studio album Listen and discovered it wasn’t what we wanted to make and wasn’t really The Kooks. So, we scrapped it and started again. I really went on a mission to write the best songs I’d ever written before bringing them to the band, I stewed over every word. It had to be our Rubber Soul, Lola, Definitely Maybe. Proper British lineage. I came from a dark place at the start had a lotta heartbreak and then falling in love in the middle of the album, the lyrics reflect that. From Fractured and Dazed to No Pressure. It’s gotta be our most exciting album, and it should get you dancing.

The Kooks started their career with a bang in 2006 with their unstoppable debut Inside In/Inside Out, which went five times platinum at the end of last year. The four-piece band have continued to go from strength to strength. With three more studio albums including a Best of, the band have acquired over 1 billion streams worldwide and embarked on a number of massive world tours including their forthcoming sold-out US tour. With awards and critical acclaim under their belts, they’ve maintained a steady ascent to the top, constantly growing in popularity throughout the last decade.

With a legion of new fans discovering the band through streaming in recent years, The Kooks delivered a career defining show last year at London’s Wembley Arena, whilst pulling some of the biggest crowds across the summer festival circuits. 2018 sees The Kooks redefined, varied and ready to go again at their most confident.
