I was asked to premiere this song written by a 16-year-old singer/songwriter from New York City named Stella Prince. Given her age and just how many artists, from Taylor Swift to Bob Dylan, are considered singer/songwriters; I thought I was going to hear something more along the lines of “Me”, “Cardigan”, maybe even “Driver’s Licence” By Olivia Rodrigo. What I did hear, was surprising and brilliant!
New York artist Kira Rizavi brings soaring vocals along with warmth and positivity in her debut single, ‘Breathe Down’. The young singer-songwriter, who has been favourably compared to Diana Ross, and Rihanna, has already performed at Madison Square Garden, The Metropolitan Opera, and The Bitter End.
Songwriter and producer Soren Bryce has created an alt-rock project called ‘Tummyache’ – named for one of the side effects she experiences as a result of her severe physical anxiety. Latest single ‘Machine’ is from her debut EP, ‘Humpday’, which was released November 1 through Poor Man / Palo Santo.
New York hip hop artist Antonio Rosario, who has been performing as Fadetheblackk for the past seven years, harks back to his Latin American roots with his latest single, ‘Successful’. The composer, audio engineer, and influencer is new to us here at EP, but with the motto of, “Dare to be different, Then be yourself”, we’re sure to be hearing a lot more of him.
If you’re unfamiliar with X Ambassadors, we recommend you make your acquaintance pronto with the trio from Ithaca, New York. Their new long player, ‘ORION’, is only the second studio album from the band on the KIDinaKORNER/Interscope label, but it’s already making an impact with the single releases, ‘Boom’, ‘Hey Child’, and ‘Hold You Down’, as well as the recent track, ‘Confidence’, featuring K.Flay.
