Catina is someone I was ecstatic about interviewing. As a Chinese American, it’s always been hard for me to find a Chinese artist with music I like. When I heard Catina’s single, “Stronger,” I knew I had to talk to her. This song is the perfect one to add to your Girls Night Out playlist or if you want to just feel empowered getting ready.
“Don’t you wanna come with me?” The six words every die hard fan wants to hear Brandon Flowers sing to them (and a few thousand other people) while The Killers closed out ACL 2017 on a hot Texas night.
WJM is a trio you’re going to want to keep on your radar very soon. The California natives comprised of William, Jeremy, and Max became a rock band at the young age of 8 but instead of just creating music, they decided to use this as a way to change the world.
We are so excited to premiere the new Kris Angelis video for “Kevin Bacon” it is such a cute video and we loved talking to her. Watch the video and read about her songwriting process.
We caught up with COIN at Hangout Fest, the last time we talked to the band was in February, so we were stoked to see the guys playing in Gulf Shores. If you haven’t noticed, the band has been gaining a lot of traction.
Fresh off their new EP release, I.L.Y., and opening slot for COIN, we talk to Anderson College’s very own, The Wldlfe. There may not be a song I listened to more than “Text Me?” last year, so I am excited to introduce you all to the Indianapolis quartet. Jansen Hogan spoke with me about the band, the new EP, and 2017.
Since I’ve moved to Chicago, I’ve found myself alone at concerts on numerous occasions, and you know what? It’s not so bad. It’s actually pretty awesome. Here are my top reasons why you should try flying solo at a music event.
Don’t call it a comeback, I’ve been here for years, commonly known as an LL Cool J lyric, but also fitting as the story of Justin Bieber’s life this year as he came back onto the scene after a messy, public breakdown. Those of us who have always been Beliebers, we knew he still had “it” – but, it was the rest of the world who needed convincing.
Festival season is upon us! Our contributors are here to help you decide which ones to go to and which ones to skip.
Andy Tongren met Dylan Scott, Julian Dimagiba, and Steve Patrick when he was at an open mic in New York. They had all been playing for rival bands around New Jersey when they found him. He said it was “sort of an instant chemistry, best friends right away.” They had viral success with their video for “High” and just released their EP The Kids Will Be Fine. We talked to Andy Tongren, singer and guitarist, about their inspiration and how they follow up a successful single.
“For a long time no one took notice of the music that we were doing. We like to write songs about the turning point in our career when people started to listen and pay attention because that was an exciting time,” says Tongren. “We want to give the listener something they can grasp a hold of because other than that there’s no point to what were doing. It’s so unique and special to me when there is a song that perfectly captures a moment in your life and we try to do that for our listeners.”
