Shannon LaBrie

An interview with Nashville based singer songwriter Shannon LaBrie, known for the song Alcohol which has clocked 1.5 million streams on Spotify.

What would be the overall theme of your latest album?
Honestly, I think the overall theme of this record is “Grief.” This album was written in the midst of and in hindsight of the most painful years of my life. A mixture of love songs, sad songs, strong songs, they are all little bits and pieces of my journey. When this album officially released I felt a sense of relief and I truly believe that (the making of this album) made the burden of grief much lighter.

What do you want to say through your music?
That you are not alone. No matter how dark or painful your life might be, you are never alone and there is always hope! CONTINUE READING

I wanted to know more of this California songstress and I her asked her questions, exploring the world of creativity and inspiration.

Did you grow up in show business?
Em Rossi: I was always surrounded by music growing up. My father played guitar, sang, and wrote. Music was played in my house all day and I naturally found a great love for the art. I began taking vocal lessons when I was eight years old training in Classical and Musical Theatre. My passion grew from there as I began singing at recitals and performing for family and friends.

Anthony Rankin

Who is Anthony Rankin? He is an up & coming Nashville-based pop singer & songwriter. His latest radio-ready song and video ‘Phoenix In Vegas‘ demonstrate his musical chops. What does Rankin want to say through his music? It was one of the many questions I wanted to explore….

Can you elaborate on your background?
A: I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. My father was a professional drummer for much of his life and my mother a giant music fan for as long as I can remember. They always encouraged my creative pursuits. I grew up performing with my dad in blues bars, school talent shows, summer fairs. After cutting my teeth on many stages as a teenager, I attended college and received a Bachelor’s degree in music and studio recording from Duquesne University. In the years that followed, I self-released a handful of albums and performed throughout Pittsburgh and the northeast before I moved to Nashville in 2011 to broaden my career pursuits.

Jeffrey David

Jeffery has worked with major artists in multiple genres. He co-wrote Echosmith’s pop hit and multi-platinum-selling single, “Cool Kids”, is multi-platinum around the world. Jeffery has had over 350 syncs (Monday Night Football, MTV, VH1) and also written many songs for TV shows, including The Voice, Glee, American Idol, The Biggest Loser and ESPN. Additionally, he has scored fifteen worldwide commercials for brands including Guess, Southwest Airlines, Victoria Beckham and Lamborghini.

You’ve worked with a lot of artists like Seal, Zedd, O Town, Christina Grimmie and Echosmith. What was it like working with Seal?

That was a lot of fun. It was one of the highlights of my career for sure. His publisher reached out to me about him working with me and I didn’t hear anything for a few months and then all the sudden he emailed me directly and was raving about a song I wrote. I didn’t believe it was him at first and thought for sure it was a friend playing a prank.

We worked for 6 weeks straight and wrote something like 14 songs. He was at my house every day and we’d go to movies and get ice cream between sessions. My wife would make these amazing meals everyday and Seal was loving the food so much he’d serenade her while she cooked lunch. It was hilarious. He’s one of the most gifted singers I’ve ever worked with and his vocal range is really impressive. His writing is really special and once he trusts you musically he’s willing try anything. I appreciated being able to experiment and push him in new ways. He’s become close to my entire family and we just adore him. CONTINUE READING
