Madison Beer is an emerging pop star from Long Island, New York. Not too long ago, she released a heart-wrenching pop tune, entitled, “Reckless,” which ‘Reckless’ tells an unhappy tale about a young woman who remembers when her significant other revealed how important she was in his life. At that moment, he admitted that there were no other girls in his life except her. Unfortunately for her, he wasn’t telling the truth, and she ended up with a broken heart.
“‘Reckless’ was written about how easy it is for some people in relationships to hurt others and move on without any guilt. People have so much power over their partner’s feelings, yet many still choose to treat each other carelessly. I believe there is a balance to putting ourselves and our feelings first while knowing we have the responsibility of treating people with respect, kindness, and consideration. It’s so important to find that balance in every relationship and knowing when to move on if you can’t.”
‘Reckless’ contains a post-relationship-based narrative, ear-pleasing vocalization, and tuneful melodies that will resonate well with fans of Ariana Grande, Charlotte Lawrence, and Olivia Rodrigo. The tear-jerky tune possesses moody instrumentation flavored with a warm sentimental pop vibration. Furthermore, “Reckless” is the first single to come from Madison Beer’s upcoming project, and it follows her debut album, Life Support (tickets on sale now). Plus, the song shadows the announcement of the US and Canada leg of Madison’s Life Support Tour.
Simone is a 16-year-old singer-songwriter from New York City. Not too long ago, she released a lovely six-track EP, entitled, Love Lessons. Simone writes with a very strong cinematic eye, capturing the rough edges of modern relationships in vivid detail.
“Every song on ‘Love Lessons’ tells a story about a relationship that ultimately isn’t built to last. All six tracks are written from different perspectives about experiences with love and heartbreak. I wrote all of these songs by myself in my bedroom, touching on vulnerable and way too relatable emotions. I’m really proud of the versatility showcased in this project, from pop songs to rock songs to ballads.” – Simone explained
Simone first fell in love with Broadway as a youngster. By the age of ten, she’d already appeared in a slew of musicals, and by the time she hit middle school, she was writing her own songs and performing regularly at New York open mic nights such as Sidewalk Cafe. It was at one of those early performances that Simone caught the attention of a New York-based producer, and soon she found herself recording in a proper studio and making waves across Spotify and social media.
Devon Beck is a Nashville-based singer-songwriter from Central Pennsylvania. Not too long ago, she released a heartfelt Country tune, entitled, “Mirrors,” produced by Tyler Thompson.
“Throughout my life, I’ve learned that not everyone is who they say they are, and no matter which road I take, there will always be people like that. This song is about watching out for people who don’t have my best interest at heart.” – Devon Beck explained
‘Mirrors’ contains a relatable narrative, ear-pleasing vocalization, and tuneful melodies that will resonate well with fans of Kelsea Ballerini, Carly Pearce, and Carrie Underwood. The likable tune possesses guitar-laden instrumentation flavored with a contemporary Country vibration. Furthermore, “Mirrors” follows mildly on the heels of Devon Beck’s debut EP, entitled, “One Sided Expectations,” released on her 18th birthday in July 2020. The four-track project is an honest and genuine reflection of the heartbreak and turbulent relationships that Devon has experienced. However, the lyrics are heartfelt and relatable at any age.
ROE is an LA-based singer-songwriter from Venice, California. Not too long ago, she released an attractive visualizer for her “Baby” single. The vintage glam visual, captured in part on film, is a sweet ode to ROE’s coastal upbringing.
“From the VHS captures to the pink furry walls to the roller skates, the video is a Westside girl’s fantasy come to life. The record really connects me to my Venice roots — the beach, the free-flowing fun culture. It’s nostalgic, colorful, and sexy.” – ROE stated
ROE is a multi-talented artist and songwriter for Universal Music Publishing Group. After years of working as a songwriter (behind the scenes), she has broken out to step into her truest form.

Grace Morrison is a talented singer-songwriter based in Nashville, TN. Not too long ago, she released a lovely Country tune, entitled, “Daughter,” which finds Morrison taking a long, hard look at herself. The likable tune contains a relatable narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies that will resonate well with fans of Lori McKenna, Faith Hill, and Martina McBride.
“There’s a line in that song: ‘I’ll spend another day, put another suitcase down.’ When I was looking at the themes of the album, I thought, ‘Hot damn, that’s it! This thing is about dropping your emotional baggage – just letting it all go and owning who you are. But, truthfully, it isn’t a coincidence. This has been the theme of my life and my writing. Trying to find catharsis for my own baggage and simultaneously carrying around the baggage of my parents and grandparents. Life wasn’t kind to them. I’ve always wanted to vindicate them in every way possible because I’m their daughter. So while this album is about stepping into your own power, part of me hopes that they feel vindicated from wherever in the heavens they are.” – Grace Morrison explained
Also, “Daughter” possesses guitar-driven instrumentation flavored with a contemporary Country vibration. Furthermore, the song is the title track of Grace Morrison’s upcoming album, produced by Jon Evans (bassist for Tori Amos, Chris Cornell).
Cy is the solo project of Swedish singer-songwriter, Amanda Cygnaeus. Not too long ago, she released a punkish-pop tune, entitled, “Don’t Sleep With My Ex,” which tells an intriguing tale about a young woman who recently suffered a messy breakup with her significant other. Alone and frustrated, she finds herself on the wrong side of forbidden love. And even more disturbing, her ex and best friend have become a couple behind her back – while she is trying her best to move on.
“I was a ticking bomb when I came to the studio that day and all of my anger and confusion just exploded into this song. It’s not about me hating on someone’s relationship, but rather about feeling betrayed by a close friend. Whenever I’m wondering if I’m exaggerating and being petty about two people finding love, I go back and listen to this song. It makes me remember that some things you might not be able to forgive, and that’s okay.” – Cy explained
Anna Aarons is a singer-songwriter from London, England. Not too long ago, she released a feel-good reggae tune, entitled, “A Perfect Day,” a pick-me-up tune that gently lifts everyone’s mood into a happier space and blows away the worries of the day-to-day. The catchy sing-along chorus expresses the universal mantra to happiness: “everything is A-OK, oh what a perfect day.”
“For me, ‘A Perfect Day’ isn’t about clichés of great weather and tropical beaches. But about enjoying the moment, when life around you feels calm, and you just feel fully content. The essence of the song is about creating the feeling of abundance. Because the song has such an upbeat ukulele rhythm, along with the positive lyrics, it really speaks to me when I am feeling down, and just automatically puts me in a better mood – which is what I hope will happen for everyone who listens to it too.”– Anna Aarons explained
Mel Senese is a singer-songwriter based in Chicago. Not too long ago, she released a heartfelt pop-rock tune, entitled, “Merry Go Round,” which tells an unhappy tale about a young woman who is dealing with depression and anxiety. Apparently, she always sets her expectations way too high, and whenever she falls off the deep end, she feels bad. Later, she admits that most of the time she feels nothing at all.
“‘Merry Go Round’ reflects on my experiences of going in and out of depression/anxiety. And the repetitive nature of its ability to completely take over you. I wanted to be truthful with my feelings and really let others know that it’s ok to talk about your pain and mental health. I’ve held onto this song for a while and decided to release it to the world now, as I am currently getting help and being open and honest with my fans. I hope that my lyrics can connect with others who are going through a similar experience.” – Mel Senese explained
Julia Pratt is a 20-year-old LA-based singer-songwriter from Philadelphia. Not too long ago, she released a jazzy indie-pop tune, entitled, “Fallout,” which tells a heartfelt tale about a young woman who finds herself exploring the emotions and thoughts that one experiences after the end of a relationship. Apparently, she accepts the fact that her significant other isn’t going to change into the person she wants to be with. Therefore, she would rather be alone than being unhappy.
‘Fallout’ was originally written as a slow ballad. The upbeat nature of this track is trying to add a little glamour to the sad realization that you and your partner are never going to work out and it’s wishful thinking to believe that you are.” – Julia Pratt explained
Julia Pratt started singing as a teenager after a childhood of playing multiple instruments including cello and saxophone. Later, she started singing the standards that she had been playing.
The location is South-side Jamaica, a rough and tough neighborhood in Queens, New York, and home to Babita Harris, an uninsured single parent who falls ill after returning home from vacation. She is taken to a hospital, where Salome McBryant diagnoses her with having black fever disease, which has done a significant amount of damage to her liver. With a couple of months to live, Babita's only hope of survival is a costly liver transplant. But with no health insurance, the chance of surgery is slim. What she needs is a quarter of a million dollars in cash. And that's when Barnes, her only son, along with his best friends, Demus and Baker, spring into dangerous action to get the money. Though their road is paved with good intentions, the brothers in arms are in for a few surprises and a whole lot of heat in this supernatural thriller which tells two remarkable tales of crime and redemption.
Barnes, Demus, and Baker are back with another actioned-packed adventure. This time, they travel to Monomotapa, Alkebulan, where the king and queen were recently slain by Ego, a familiar nemesis whom the three Black boys thought they had destroyed in the afterlife. But they were deeply mistaken. Now, Ego has in his possession The Hotep Brother Manuscript, a sacred book filled with spiritual laws and enchanting spells, which he uses to turn the Monomotapan military into Egomaniacs. By his side is Deadra, a divine entity, and their goal is to rule Monomotapa and discontinue all shipments of gold to Planet Black, the home of the deities. Currently, the black planet is vulnerable, protected by a thin layer of gold that is quickly depleting. With the threat of an incoming meteoroid shower looming, there’s no telling what might happen to Planet Black if a large shipment of gold doesn’t arrive there soon.
