Maria Milis , the 19 year old released her first ever 4 track dreamy-atmospheric EP which details a toxic relationship. My favorite track Bring Out The Devil In Me has a Lorde vibe, while Medusa sounds like she was hanging with Adele when she wrote Skyfall. While the EP is far from perfect, its moments of messiness makes it special. Hailing from North London, the singer songwriter cites Lady Gaga, Stevie Nicks, Kanye West and The Red Hot Chilli Peppers as influences. Check out her short documentary discussing the meaning behind the tracks.
Having worked with some of the writers and producers behind Adele, James Morrison and Joss Stone, the London based singer-songwriter draws influences from the likes of Justin Timberlake and MNEK. Check it out.
Singer songwriter Maiya, releases her debut single Sidelines. The 16 year old reveals her vocal chops in the uptempo club-ready track. Maiya who cites Adele, Little Mix, and Demi Lovato as vocal influences has been building a steady following in the high desert of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Maiya notes,” Although Sidelines is a love song, I wrote it about not giving up and how you always have a chance or a shot at anything that you can do, so don’t give up or give in. Just keep on fighting and shooting for the stars.” Check it out!
Mo Brandis releases his debut EP ‘Undercover’. The latest get-on-the-dance-floor single Red Lights is definitely a stand out of the 4 song EP.
Having worked with some of the writers and producers behind Adele, James Morrison and Joss Stone, the London based singer-songwriter draws influences from the likes of Justin Timberlake and MNEK.
Mo says: “I wrote ‘Red Lights’ as a feel-good tune and morning boost for anyone who needs it. I know I do on most days! It’s about breaking out of your mind, pursuing your dreams and not letting anything or anyone stop you. I’m always really inspired by stories of people going against all odds – because they had their own vision and just kept going.”
In a time where music labels are fighting against piracy and streaming services, it hasn’t stopped Sony making a deal of the century. It’s between Sony and you-know-who. That’s right, Adele will sign a $130 million contract with Sony.
This tops Whitney Houston’s $100 million contract with Arista Records in 2001. In fact, Adele will also be signing the biggest record deal by any female singer.
This now gives Sony the exclusive rights to release her music. This is certainly great for Adele. She has an amazing voice and presence and has earned her keep. She is deservingly the wealthiest female musician in Britain.
