Alessiah is a young and talented singer-songwriter from Romania. Not too long ago, she released a wonderful music video for her “Summer Feeling” single, which talks about a magnificent moment in our life. The one when summer arrives, and we can create memories under the savanna sunsets and purple skies.
“‘Summer Feeling’ is a song in which everybody can find themselves. The first time I heard it, I was on the beach with my best friend. It fitted perfectly and gave me that summer feeling. It took three countries for it to get this good. We recorded it in Norway with Iselin Solheim, Anders Nilson, and André Jensen. Now the whole vibe in the studio was something else. I had the best experience EVER, I’m forever grateful for this opportunity.
The weather was terrible, your nose could freeze if you stayed outside for too long, but this song got us feeling like we were partying in Spain. And that’s how it hit me. The video fitted perfectly in such a location as La Muralla Roja. After months of planning, we got the team together and flew right there. ‘Summer Feeling’ is a splash of emotions, whether summer’s here or not. We can always sit back and think of it, begging it to come back.” – Alessiah explained
With each release, there is no doubt that Alessiah has announced her arrival on the world stage with her collection of wonderfully inspiring pop songs. The young teenager has been releasing songs at a prolific rate to an audience of ever-growing fans. One of the new generation of artists breaking new ground with every step she makes; each song is imbued with a natural simplicity which Alessiah believes to be the most precious quality an artist can have in their possession. She is a free spirit and fills every waking moment of her career with the energy of youth and the vitality of an artist hungry to succeed.
Timebelle is a music outfit from Switzerland. Not too long ago, they released an appealing music video for their “One in a Million” single, which contains a relatable narrative and ear-pleasing vocals that will resonate well with fans of Adele, Sabrina Claudio, and Olivia Rodrigo. The emotional tune possesses piano-laden instrumentation flavored with a warm contemporary pop vibration. Furthermore, “One in a Million” serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear from Timebelle in the near future as they continue to release new music.
“‘One In a Million’ is a paradox expressed in lyrics and musical notes. We are born as these unique human beings, with different wants and needs from life. But society’s charm and manipulative ways eventually bring us under its protective umbrella at the cost of our authenticity. We truly believe in this narrative of being one-of-a-kind humans, with unique physical and psychological prints. But the hunger with which we absorb every trend dictated by social media platforms tells us a different story, doesn’t it? We are indeed unique, at least we were born this way. We are indeed one in a million, or even one in eight billion. But we become adults and we change. The paradox is between wanting uniqueness and doing everything we can to be just like everyone else. Why is that? Because the desire to belong is always stronger than the power to embrace your individuality, however different that might be. The moment we decide to stand alone and fight for the inner original child is the moment we truly become one in a million.” – Timebelle explained
With the power ballad, “Apollo,” written and produced in Sweden, Timebelle represented Switzerland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 in Kiev, Ukraine. The band is named after the famous Swiss landmark, “Zytglogge,” in Bern. However, Timebelle is also a tribute to a “beautiful time” in Bern, where the band has been originally.
Glory Shalom is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter from Miami, Florida. Not too long ago, she released an inspiring gospel tune, entitled, “Yet I Will,” which tells an encouraging tale about a young woman who puts her hope in promises made by her Creator. Apparently, as she walks through the valley of the shadow of death, she remembers God’s mercy and faithfulness. Later, she tells God, “When life is heavy and it’s hard to take, I remember you’ll never leave me. You’ll never forsake.”
“I wrote ‘Yet I Will’ during a season that I had experienced a major disappointment in my life. What happens when God leads you into the wilderness? Do you complain and give up or do you continue to praise Him through life’s uncertainties? ‘Yet I Will’ was inspired by Habakkuk 3:17-19. Even though it seemed as if nothing was going right for Habakkuk, their fig trees wouldn’t blossom, there were no grapes on the vines, their olive crops had failed, and the list went on. He said, ‘Yet I Will rejoice in the Lord.’
You can also be reminded of Job, when he had lost everything, but he continued to praise God for who He was, and God blessed him with double for his trouble. This song is dramatic, melodic, and soulful. When we walk through a low valley in life, we can continue to have hope in knowing that God will bring us through. I hope this song encourages you to have peace, joy, and confidence during the rough seasons of life.” – Glory Shalom explained
‘Yet I Will’ contains a faith-based narrative, inspiring lyrics, and ear-pleasing vocals that will resonate well with fans of Travis Greene and Alicia Keys. The likable tune possesses festive horns and thudding drum-laden instrumentation flavored with retro R&B, contemporary gospel, and Christian elements. Furthermore, “Yet I Will” serves as a guiding light for those who are traveling through the darkest hour of the night.
Cat Burns is a talented singer-songwriter and musician from South London, England. Not too long ago, she performed her “go” and “we’re not kids anymore” singles LIVE via her Vevo DSCVR session. Underpinned by honest lyrics and ear-pleasing vocals, “go” finds Cat Burns exploring the internal complex feelings people experience when going through the ebb and flows of mental health journeys, friendships, commitment, and abandonment issues. Also, “go” and “we’re not kids anymore” are featured on Cat’s debut EP, entitled, “emotionally unavailable.”
“‘go’ is about a breakup a close friend of mine went through a couple of years ago. The song is about being betrayed and finally finding out that the person who should love you the most breaks your trust and completely ruins the relationship. It’s not a mean or ill-wishing song; it’s a song about realization but also disbelief at the same time.” – Cat Burns stated
‘emotionally unavailable’ details Cat Burns’s personal journey in an in-depth and profound way. The six-track project displays her blossoming artistry and heartfelt lyricism, showing her maturity as a singer-songwriter. Also, the EP is an incredible body of work that dives into how society has become detached yet so connected in the current age of social media. Cat unleashes her unique perspective for everyone to relate to.
Brianna Knight is a singer-songwriter and producer from Spring Valley, New York. Not too long ago, she released a funky retro R&B tune, entitled, “Yes We Can Can,” a modern version of the famous song from The Pointer Sisters.
“‘Yes We Can Can’ is about encouraging everyone to work together as a community. Sometimes when facing issues, whether it’s racism, climate change, or poverty, we can feel isolated in our fight. For example, when talking about climate change, we pin the issue on the lack of recycling on an individual basis versus working as a group to pin the issue on larger corporations. Change comes when we work as community! When I first read the lyrics, I thought about how the words are still relevant 40 years later. We all need an upbeat reminder that we have the power to change things as long as we work with one another. Sometimes, especially in this political climate we’re in, we can feel powerless. And this song reminds me that I have everything I need to help the people around me.” – Brianna Knight explained
‘Yes We Can Can’ sees Knight encouraging listeners to think positive while trying to work in a cooperative spirit with others. Later, she sings with passion, “We gotta take care of all the children, the little children of the world. ‘Cause they’re our strongest hope for the future, the little bitty boys and girls.”
Ina Forsman is a Finnish singer-songwriter, producer, and composer based in Berlin, Germany. Not too long ago, she released a sensational soul single, entitled, “Love Me,” which tells a wonderful tale about a young woman who shares a loving relationship with her significant other. Apparently, she believes her partner’s love is all she needs. Therefore, she doesn’t deem it necessary to be loved by anyone else anymore. Later, she asks her partner, “Does it feel any different to be around someone who will never let you down? Hey, baby, I bet you’re the only one who could make forever feel like it’s nowhere near enough.”
“This song is about the moment when you’re absolutely convinced that nothing can go wrong. It’s the most intense moment in a relationship. Regardless of how the relationship develops, the world is in perfect balance in that tiny moment when you say so and are said back by the other person.” – Ina Forsman explained
‘Love Me’ is a classic love song that captures the feeling of saying, “I love you” for the first time. The song contains old-fashioned arrangements that will make listeners move their feet. Also, ‘Love Me’ serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear on Ina Forsman’s upcoming album, entitled, “All There Is,” set to be released on June 24, 2022.
Isabelle Fries is an LA-based singer-songwriter. Not too long ago, she released a lovely indie-pop tune, entitled, “What Can I Do,” which highlights themes that capture the essence of what drives Isabelle in her life, music, and her love and advocacy for others. The heartfelt tune contains a friend-based narrative and ear-pleasing vocals that will resonate well with fans of Maggie Rogers, Kasbo, and The Lumineers.
“Music has a way of making people feel things they didn’t know they could feel or needed to feel. It does that for me every day. Music meets you where you are emotionally and helps you find out where you need to go. It can help us all feel together in a healthy way. But it can also help us understand that what we feel is okay. Sometimes in our world, we are told not to feel or not to break down and be human, but music helps us to remember that we can. That suffering is not a process that we have to endure alone.” – Isabelle Fries explained
Isabelle Fries’s songs have accumulated over six million streams. Since the age of 15, the charismatic singer has been traveling to Uganda, where she became a board member of The Global Livingston Institute (GLI) at the age of 18.
Daniel Herr is a Nashville-based singer-songwriter from Zurich, Switzerland. Not too long ago, he released a sensational pop ballad, entitled, “The Way It’s Supposed to Feel (Acoustic Sessions),” which tells an endearing tale about a young guy who is head-over-heels in love with his significant other. Apparently, when he was tired, and his lung was on fire gasping for air, he rested on his partner’s chest and revealed his scars. Therefore, he tells his companion with certainty, “It doesn’t get better than this. I know for sure this is it, there’s nothing else out there I’m missing.”
“The inspiration for the song came when my friend asked me to play at her wedding and I realized most of my love songs are about how much love can suck! So, I wrote this. She ended up not letting me sing it for the ceremony because the first line blatantly says how much of a ho I’d been in my early 20s, ha-ha.”– Daniel Herr explained
“If John Mayer makes Sob Rock, then I make ‘sob-pop,” Daniel Herr stated. The charismatic singer studied Philosophy and French at Oxford University and worked for a year at a law firm in Paris before moving back to the United States to pursue writing and recording music. Only a year after moving to Nashville, Daniel signed his first publishing deal.
