Written while she was sick and couldn’t sing, ‘Volvi A Epezar’ is the debut single from Latin Pop singer songwriter, Alexandra Duran. The song sees Alexandra emerge from adversity, and allows her to express how she felt after a break up, and examines how she set about reclaiming her power, and strength.
The Covid-19 pandemic is still going, but thankfully things are starting to open up, and when it was announced that fully vaccinated people from the UK were able to travel to Ireland, I leapt at the chance, and booked some interviews to go ahead while I was over. One interview was with N.O.A.H, a trio from County Meath, who really only came together during the Covid crisis, and now, as we reach a new, “do-able” normal, are poised on the precipice of something big, at exactly the right time.
Hailing from Ithaca New York, singer songwriter Janet Batch is the perfect blend of Stevie Nicks and Johnny Cash – with a little bit of Rosemary Clooney thrown in for good measure – with her brand new single, ‘Got No Idea’. Janet’s style will get your feet stomping as she beguiles you with her tales of being pulled by her bootstraps growing up in the Rust Belt of Northeast USA.
At just 22, Chelsea Collins is a name that you will almost certainly start to hear more of. Having racked up over 25 million streams with the brilliant ‘Used to be (L O.V.E.)’ and catching the eye and ear with the poignant ‘O7 Britney’, she’s back with three new songs that will almost certainly be the centrepiece of her EP which should hopefully drop before the end of the year. I really think that this will be lift off for this outstanding artist.
Pop artist Silvre releases the anthemic new single, ‘Ready Set Go’. Serving as a call to arms, and inspired by the inauthenticity we’re bombarded with on a daily basis via social media, the song was written, produced, and recorded by Silvre at Charthouse Studios, Portsmouth, alongside Alix Robson, and Cameron Soper.
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. The new single pulls no punches from the very start – entitled ‘I Love Angela Merkel’, the witty, energetic track is out on 30 July, and is destined to become a club anthem.
A self-confessed emo kid, New Orleans artist, Bailey Flores takes her inspiration from the likes of Paramore, Circa Survive, and the soft-rock favourites of her father. Her new single however, ‘Kiss Me More’, sees Bailey’s vocals soar to the skies, and fall back to somewhere in between Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga. Yep. She’s that good.
Born and raised in Zimbabwe, but now living in Canada, actress, writer, dancer, and producer Natasha Heschélle has added singing to her already ample bow with her debut single, ‘Imagine’. The track comes from the EP of the same name, which was released on June 28, and is available on all digital platforms.
