Raul Malo, Lead Singer Of World Famous The Mavericks, Talks To Essentially Pop About ‘En Español’, The UK Tour And The Incredible Christmas Single ‘Happy Holidays’

The Mavericks, the Miami band famous for being able to cross so many boundaries between Americana, Country and Rock’n’Roll have this year added a new string to their multiple CMA and Grammy award winning bow. They have released a record entirely in Spanish. ‘En Español’ is quite simply The Mavericks in Spanish and is such a tour de force that it landed at #22 in the UK indie chart, #6 in the UK Americana chart as well as topping Billboard’s Latin Pop Album Chart. This incredible album is produced by the irrepressible lead singer Raul Malo with long time collaborator Niko Bolas, who has produced such greats as Neil Young, Prince and Sheryl Crow.

Ancient Whales – ‘Giving’

Ancient Whales have a compelling sound – garage rock that contains more than a hint of punk – that works well with their equally intriguing name. In fact, the band name is matched by that of the members themselves, Enoch Bledsoe, Natalie Bledsoe, and Oakley Munson. Not to be outdone is the title of their latest album, ‘Vestiges Of Tails Appear In All Of Us’, set for release on April 24 via Owlphabet Records, which sounds like it’s been lifted from ‘On The Origin Of Species’. First single from the album is the more simply named, ‘Giving’, and that’s where the simplicity ends.

Teenear Sees ‘Dolla Signs’ feat. Aliya Janell & Tallie Dance

Now signed to Slip-N-Slide Records, Miami’s Teenear has been honing her craft since the age of 3, when she started participating in pageants, talent shows, and singing in Church. She started uploading covers to YouTube at the age of 15, and she released her debut single, ‘Friday Night’, featuring rapper Sage The Gemini, in 2015. She’s kept up the rhythm with more singles since then, and with trailblazers like Mariah Carey, Brandy, Aaliyah, and Beyoncé as influences, there’s no doubt this star is shooting for the moon.
