From early childhood Jojo Engelbert has always been surrounded by popular entertainers, beginning with her siblings, whose nationally syndicated variety programme, ‘Ariel & Zoey & Eli Too’, was followed by a social media audience of millions. It should come as no surprise then that she never once doubted that her destiny also lay in entertainment, and her irresistible personality and gorgeous voice, from appearances on Ariel & Zoey & Eli Too as well as its companion programme, ‘Steal The Show’, ensured her introduction to her own fans. While not entirely ‘Grown Up’, at 14 Jojo feels she’s well and truly ready to shoot for the stars, with her new single.
Pre-Sexual Activities, a producer duo from New York City, know about the impact of digital media providers on music these days. They know how much streaming has disseminated popular music from its roots – no longer is it necessary to visit a local record store, or a nightclub, to hear the latest tunes. You don’t need to buy anything, you don’t even need to listen to the radio. Music can be accessed everywhere, it exists in a cloud…but clouds vanish. Although there are and have been many streaming services along the way, none have made so much of an impact as Spotify – and PSA lay the blame squarely at their feet – as heard in their latest single, ‘Spotify Your Life’.
Joyann Parker, from Minneapolis, Minnesota, is a great blues musician who has always known she was made for the genre. Starting her career in church, she soon expanded and developed, and now combines soul, R&B, gospel, jazz, and traditional blues in her versatile sound.

If you’ve watched the recent Netflix documentary, ‘This Is Pop’, you’ll know that T-Pain has his own label, Nappy Boy Entertainment. His first signing, Chayo Nash, is a musician after T-Pain’s own heart, and he makes music of his very own style, which draws from hip-hop, spaced-out guitar rock, soul, electric blues, and R&B, allowing his Chicago roots to show, yet imbuing it with the casual laidback hedonism of his adopted home, Florida. Nash’s latest single, ‘Like Dis’ is the perfect demonstration for why he was chosen by Nappy Boy. The respective chemistry and dynamism of Chayo Nash and T-Pain’s voices is showcased in ‘Like Dis’; it’s a match made in heaven.
Pop artist Silvre releases the anthemic new single, ‘Ready Set Go’.

Samer makes his debut with an homage to Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany. It might sound strange, until you realise he was a Syrian refugee who was given another chance to fulfil his dreams in Germany.
