Introducing Musician Steven Moses

Introducing Steven Moses’ debut single “Lose It” which merges 2000’s pop punk and emo rap, out on June 26

“Steven Moses is one of the most important artists of our generation.”

“There never seems to be a dull point where the music isn’t coming directly from Moses’ heart.”

“Moses is able to thrive by channeling his real life struggles and put it all in the music.”

Steven Moses always felt like an outsider. The 20-year-old rapper from Blair County, Pennsylvania remembers his small-town, middle-American upbringing as both liberating and confining. At home, where he and his sister were homeschooled for most of their lives, Moses was encouraged to explore an early interest in music. He picked up his first guitar at age 7, and remembers practicing for 8 – 10 hours a day until he was a teen. Moses taught himself to play multiple instruments throughout his childhood, learning piano, bass, drums, and dabbling in mandolin, and ukulele.

Outside of his home, he and other kids his age were pressured to fit into boxes and conform. “You have to do what everybody else does and be like everybody else otherwise you get made fun of,” Moses says about his hometown of Hollidaysburg. “Everyone played sports or skateboarded and smoked weed and did drugs. You were either an athlete or a really nerdy kid or an outcast, and I was one of the latter. I’ve always been like this.”

Before finding his way to rap as a teen, Steven Moses was inspired by punk rock. When he started a cover band with his sister and cousins, he looked to Ramones, Dead Kennedys and The Sex Pistols as major influences. The band played local bars and stages, with Moses on guitar and backing vocals. Soon, he began writing his own songs, and when he was 14 years old, he heard Nas’ Illmatic—an album that set him on a path to meld the two musical worlds he was most passionate about: rock and rap. His quintessential sound is exemplified on “Love Me”, the brooding, guitar-laden single that put Moses on the map in 2018.

Bad relationships, drugs and money problems fuel the stories that power Moses’ lyricism on his 2018 debut, Love Me // Leave Me. In a world full of toxicity where teens grapple with inner demons, Moses’ pained vocals and rhymes land with a spiritual touch against an aesthetic backdrop similar to that of Larry Clark and Harmony Korine’s KIDS. Nevertheless, Moses is his God given name and his life isn’t a movie. His stories are real.

Moses’ candor and honest depiction of reality is what has drawn a growing legion of fans to connect with his songs. “I feel like I have to go through a day or a week of life and experience to write,” Moses says about his process. “Maybe there’s somebody you wanna say something to but you couldn’t actually say it to them in those words, so you can put it in a song,” he explains. “[Someone] could not have the same thing going on, like it’s something completely different, but because everybody has a similar set of emotions and field of emotions, they can relate to whatever they’re thinking [my song] is about.”

As an artist beginning to recognize the influence he has on his listeners, Moses is determined to make the most of his legacy at a time when music about the darker sides of life is especially appealing to young fans. “I was really sad and I was just singing and rapping about being fucking sad,” he admits. His forthcoming album, ‘99’, is an exercise in building the bridge between a past filled with drug use, promiscuity, depression and nihilism, and a more optimistic and positive future.

With his Going Nowhere Fast collective, a group he formed with his friends around their creative talents and collaborative potential, Steven Moses wants to build a sustainable future for his friends as well. “What would have happened if Kurt Cobain could have been Bob Dylan’s age? I think about that and I’m like, I can’t be another one of those,” he asserts. “I want to be around to watch this shit happen. I’m going to be around to watch this shit happen.”

JP Cooper Releases EP

British singer JP Cooper releases a new collection of songs in the form of ‘Too Close’ EP, which is released globally today via Island Records

“Too Close” can be streamed here and includes singles “In These Arms,” “Little Bit of Love,” and “Bits & Pieces.”

JP explains, “It feels like it’s been a while since I’ve released a collection of songs, so I’m very happy to be putting this out there. I see ‘Too Close’ as a precursor to my second album. I’d like to think of these songs as part of the same collection.”

The body of work is led by latest single “Little Bit of Love,” which is the uplifting anthem that JP released to comfort fans throughout the global COVID-19 pandemic

Other tracks included on the record include the Mr Hudson produced “Bits & Pieces” and the soaring “In These Arms”  which was produced by Al Shux. The title track is a song based on that pivotal moment many people have found themselves in before stepping into a romantic relationship.

“I’d love to see what a brain scan would look like in that moment,” JP ponders. “I’m pretty sure it would be a huge ball of light.”

Beyond the exciting release of “Too Close,” more big things are set for JP Cooper in 2020. JP announced an extensive UK and European tour in the fall, including a show at London’s Brixton Academy. The full list of tour dates can be found here.

About JP Cooper:

The personal reflections in Cooper’s debut album, Raised Under Grey Skies, introduced him as a deeply affecting, soulful songwriter, and now these new singles find Cooper expanding his sound, imbuing his distinctive vocals and infectious hooks with modern energy.

The star has two UK Top Ten singles to his name: the Jonas Blue smash “Perfect Strangers” which he co-wrote, and the inescapable radio hit “September Song.” JP has since notched up an incredible 10 million single units worldwide, a whopping 11 million monthly Spotify listeners and an extraordinary 3.3 billion total global streams, fueled by his devoted 550k Spotify followers.

Jessie Ware Drops New Video

Jessie Ware has released the video for her latest single “Save A Kiss” from her upcoming album What’s Your Pleasure?

Directed by Vicky Lawton, “Save A Kiss” was made entirely in quarantine. The concept behind the visual is connecting everyone to their loved ones through dance, and it featured 14 fans dancing to the track alongside the singer in self-shot videos. “This song feels particularly special coming out now, I love it and feel really proud of what we have made for the video,” Jessie said.

With production from Simian Mobile Disco’s James Ford and Midland, “Save A Kiss” is a recipe for club glory with its sleek disco influence and free-roaming rubbery bass lines that make you want to get up and dance. It’s the perfect prescription for today’s world.

“‘Save A Kiss’ has taken on a new meaning during these weird times and it seems like the right time to put it out,” explained Jessie, “This track is an optimistic one for me, I hope it resonates with people wherever they are right now. It’s an upbeat song to dance along to and have fun with. I know I’ve got plenty of kisses I’m saving up for everyone when this is all over.

Last month, Jessie announced her fourth studio album, What’s Your Pleasure?, to great fan excitement. Pitchform said “Her latest single reminds us why we listen to dance music in the first place,” with Fader adding “‘Ooh La La’ is the kind of track that could make quarantine feel like Studio 54.” The record is a collection of sophisticated, hard-bodied pop funk that capitalizes on a love of 70s, 80s, and 90s club culture coupled with Jessie’s vocals and the intuitive production of long-time friend James Ford culminates in a sound that feels instantly compelling.

With four BRIT-nominations plus a Mercury Prize nomination and three UK top-ten albums under her belt, Jessie has proven her status as one of the UK’s most influential artists. Her return with the dancefloor ready What’s Your Pleasure? feels like an artist in control while capturing the essence of nostalgia to keep the spirit of club music and the dancefloor alive.
