Poking our nose in the country world we found a nice little gem. His name is Nathan Kalish and just released an alt country album. It’s tough to categorize Kalis, but maybe Neil Young and Wilco fans would find solace in his music. Even Kalish admits, “I have a hard time fitting in anywhere. I think I always will”. Scheduled to play 250+ shows in 2018, the latest album was recorded with Dave Beeman (Pokey LaFarge). Moreover, the Nashville based artist made the Rolling Stone ‘10 Country Artists You Need Know‘.
Kings favorite Violet Days who made our top 8 emerging list in 2015, just released a new track ‘Just A Little‘. You can view the video here.

All in all, Lina Hansson, who goes under the moniker of Violet Days is on the cusp of breaking out and the newest single could take the Swedish artist to the next level. Maybe she will finally get that break. In fact, the track was produced by Kris Eriksson, who crafted Chainsmokers’ “Paris” which became a huge hit. Check it out!
Kings favorite St. Humain releases a new track ‘The Thought Of You‘. It’s the third single release that comes off his upcoming project.

The singer-songwriter and producer is a Singapore native but now resides in Australia. Definitely a one to watch.

Moreover, she just wrapped up a performance at the Spot Festival.
Canadian singer Faith Monaco releases the radio ready track Turn Up Tonight. Singing at an early age, Faith spent several months writing the dark pop track that ventures in early Rihanna era with lyrics like “Wake up when I’m sober, push away the memories, then I’ll think of what I lost, I burn every bridge I cross”. Influenced by Demi Lovato and Beyonce, Faith notes, ” This song is about a dark time when a relationship went bad. I had to pull myself back up and overcome life’s struggles and challenges.” The up and coming artist has live performances in the works. Check it out!
