    Interview with Taylor Acorn

    Interview with Taylor Acorn

    We had the pleasure of interviewing Taylor Acorn over Zoom video.

    Nashville based singer/songwriter, Taylor Acorn, is gearing up for her FIRST EVER tour supporting Real Friends. The tour will be visiting over 25 cities across North America including stops in Toronto,ON, Philadelphia, PA, New York, NY, Pomona, CA and more before wrapping on Tuesday, November 1st in Minneapolis, MN at The Garage.

    In August, Taylor shared her latest single, “Psycho,” an empowering pop rock anthem about taking your power back from a partner that has been gaslighting you and turning into the “bad guy” they think you are.

    Growing up in the early 90’s & 2000’s pop punk/ pop rock scene, for Taylor Acorn it was never a phase. Hailing from the small North Central Pennsylvania town of Wellsboro, Taylor had always dreamed of a career in music and in 2014, dropped out of Kutztown University to pursue just that, setting her sights for Nashville in 2017.

    She first left her mark in the country music world with her 2017 single “Put It In a Song” followed up by an EP she wrote solely on her own, which now garners nearly 50 Million streams, releasing several singles to follow. However, she never felt at home creating country music and in the midst of the 2020 pandemic went back to her pop punk roots with her cover of “Jamie All Over” on TikTok, sparking the attention of many elder emo fans as well as Mayday Parade themselves.

    Since then, she has gained the attention of many emo/pop punk bands with her newly rendered versions of their songs. Covers aren’t the only thing that’s been grasping the attention of fans though. With her infectiously relatable releases of “Do That Again”, “In My Head” and “Shapeshifting”, Taylor is now leaving her own footprint in the pop punk community giving her fans a place to feel safe and to feel heard, by tackling tough subjects such as mental health by sharing her own personal struggles. She wants to give her listeners a space where they can feel free and vulnerable, a place where healing is accepted no matter who you are or where you’ve come from.

    Interview with Futuristic

    Interview with Futuristic

    We had the pleasure of interviewing Futuristic over Zoom video.

    Growing up around music from his father & 8 siblings it was inevitable that Futuristic would be a natural. The household was filled with hip-hop, rock & pop vibes all giving the young artist an eclectic palate to begin a very successful journey.

    His professional career began in 2012 with the release of his first album “Dream Big”. From then till now he's done it all. His albums “The Rise” & “Coast 2 Coast” both premiered in the top 10 on Billboard in 2015 landing him on TV shows such as Jimmy Fallon, Good Morning America & Good Day New York. His collaboration with superstar NF is now over 56 million streams on Spotify alone adding to the list of 63 other songs that have surpassed the 1 million stream milestone.

    Maybe more impressive, Futuristic has conquered a variety of other endeavors outside of music like opening a clothing store, landing his own clothing line in over 100 retail stores, writing a book, partnering in film properties, running a management company & starting the one stop shop for artists "Indie Amplify".

    Moving forward he has refocused himself on music, digging back into some of his early roots of rock & pop for his upcoming project "Never 2 Late". Always ahead of his time, Futuristic plans to live up to his name with a new genre bending sound unlike anything you've ever heard.

    Interview with Selin

    Interview with Selin

    We had the pleasure of interviewing Selin over Zoom video.

    Istanbul-born, London-based pop force Selin makes a major statement with her latest single “Cool” – which marks her first official English single under Warner Music.

    Written by Selin with Gil Lewis (Blithe, BEKA, Aleyna Tilki) and Micky Blue (Tiësto, TWICE, TaeYeon), “Cool” is a slow-burning, alt-pop number that faces the problem and ensuing emotional chaos of trying to remain on good terms with an ex. Expertly crafted pop hooks and Selin’s honeyed vocals help deliver the personal lyrics with complete emotional capacity, backed up by full-bodied drums and distinctively catchy guitar riffs for a sensational pop-rock experience.

    With Selin getting her name out there via big-time dance cuts for major names like Mahmut Orhan, Mert Oksuz, Barlas & Mert, and Trafoier, the bilingual, free-spirited creative made her official Warner Music debut in 2021 with the punchy and slick synth stylings of “Gidip Gel”; effortlessly blending English and Turkish lyrics with Selin’s powerful vocal moments, Selin then proved her international capabilities by transforming the song into a fully English remake in “Give and Take”, which received key support from Brooke Reese’s Apple Music show.

    Selin embarked on her journey as an independent artist after graduating from the BIMM Institute London, which has seen her opening for artists like Donna Missal at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London, as well as a stadium tour around Turkey performing alongside Turkish icon Sertab Erener. Carving out an audience for herself with her ‘boho rock’ vibes and unique viral content of Selin covering Turkish classics with English lyrics, the covers prove a further example of Selin’s mission to sprinkle what she calls her “Turkish spice” into all aspects of her career – be it through creative infusions of Turkish instruments across Western pop production, or seamlessly mixing Turkish and English lyrics together. Always taking an authentic approach to her songwriting, Selin uses the art form as her own form of healing and writes with ‘no filter’ to capture her innermost thoughts and feelings.

    Interview with The Higher

    Interview with The Higher

    We had the pleasure of interviewing The Higher over Zoom video.

    The Higher recently released their first single since their 2009 LP It’s Only Natural titled “Free Ride.” This new single comes ahead of the band's newly announced EP Elvis in Wonderland, which is entirely produced by Mike Pepe (Taking Back Sunday, As It Is, Bayside, Anthony Green.) Elvis in Wonderland hits DSPs October 14, 2022 via Secret Friends Music Group, and will be available on vinyl in collaboration with Take This To Heart Records and Parting Gift Records.

    The Higher rode the wave of pop-rock stardom in the early 2000’s after sharing the stage with emo greats including Panic! At The Disco, Taking Back Sunday, Motion City Soundtrack, Silverstein, and more. Their unique brand of rock fused with a hint of groove landed their fan-favorite On Fire LP a #9 spot on the Billboard Heatseekers Charts, on heavy rotation on multiple MTV channels, and on the radar of top tastemakers including SPIN, Kerrang!, Fuse, and more.

    Now the Epitaph Records alumni are taking everything they know from the major stages of their early days to shine brighter than ever for their 2022 comeback. The new tracks encompass their rejuvenated sound and fresh era fusing elements of dance pop, emo, and R&B with a pop-punk edge. With Seth Trotter on vocals, Reggie Ragan on guitar and vocals, and George Lind rounding out the lineup on drums.

    Interview with Hezron Clarke

    Interview with Hezron Clarke

    We had the pleasure of interviewing Hezron Clarke over Zoom video.

    Montego Bay, Jamaica raised vocalist, songwriter and producer Hezron Clarke released his album, M.O.A.M. (Man on a Mission), via Tad’s Record (Ernie Ranglin, Tanya Stephens).

    Recorded in Reggae’s birthplace, Kingston Jamaica, M.O.A.M. features some of Jamaica’s greatest musicians including Dean Fraser (saxophone), Kirk “Kirkle Dove” Bennett (drums), Donald “Danny Bassie” Dennis (bass), Mitchum Khan (guitar), Carol “Bowie” McLaughlin (keyboards) and Robbie Lyn (keyboards). On a lyrical front, the album embodies feel-good vibes with motivational and inspirational concepts that encourage patience and resilience.

    With inspiration from classic soul artists such as Luther Vandross, Otis Redding and Sam Cooke, to 90’s favorites KC and Jojo and Dave Hollister to iconic Jamaican singers Beres Hammond and Dennis Brown, Hezron has embodied his own classic vocal and musical style while taking notes from some of the greats.

    Hezron released his debut album The Life I Live(d) on Tad’s Record in 2015. His return to the label with M.O.A.M. unites two established Jamaican brands, each committed to proving that quality reggae with the potential for widespread global appeal is still being made in the music’s birthplace. Although many younger Jamaican artists embrace trap and hip-hop over indigenous reggae and dancehall, a stark contrast to the proliferation of young American reggae bands, especially in California, Tad’s Record founder Tad Dawkins is determined to see Jamaican reggae restored to prominence internationally. It’s an objective he firmly believes will be fulfilled with the release of M.O.A.M.
