Tove Styrke – Mistakes: Newly released single from this Swedish singer-songwriter. A platinum selling and Grammy nominated artist in her native Sweden, Tove Styrke has been on a fast rise since the release of Kiddo, bolstered by striking lead single, “Borderline,” as well as strong follow-ups, “Ego” and “Number One.” The album paved the way for a full North American headline tour, SXSW appearances, a performance on Late Night with Seth Meyers and widespread critical acclaim.
Jim Button – Just A Little Less: “Only a few years ago while curing herself from her anxiety of sleeping in the dark while hiking through Norway the woman that goes by the name of Jim Button decided to go for a career in songwriting. The back then photographer wanted to write songs. Songs for others to perform. To do so she simply taught herself to play six chords on the guitar and got started. It did not take too long until she realised that there was more to her songs. From that moment on she wrote for herself as well.”
Topia – Lay It On The Line: “Born from a love of euphoric and gothic pop, Los Angeles electronic duo TOPIA, consisting of Jack Payne and Jack Guimon, set out to explore that yin and yang… “Lay It on the Line” is a track that deals with emotional honesty, specifically about how it’s difficult to explain how you feel about something or someone, but it’s always worth it to make that effort. It’s a leap of faith, hoping the feelings will be reciprocated, while coming to grips with the possibility they won’t be.”
Patrick Joseph – Waiting to Begin: New single. “Pittsburgh native, Los Angeles resident & Award-Winning singer/songwriter Patrick Joseph has been active in the music world for years now, having toured extensively … With the support of music licensing, having landed dozens of film and TV placements (including The Office, Grey’s Anatomy, Gossip Girl), and the support of influential independent radio such as KCRW and KEXP, Joseph has independently forged a spot for himself as one of LA’s brightest young songwriters and rising stars on the indie scene.”
