SAREYA just released a fun uptempo track Hiding Place. She released two singles last year which were more chill but her newer batch are more playful that shows a more brighter side of the Canadian singer – songwriter. She says, “I want my music to speak to people. I want to create a wide variety of music that anyone can relate to, no matter what age they are or what state of mind they’re in. I want my music to convey many different messages because life is complicated and creates different struggles for everyone. I want to express my heartbreak, life battles, what I’ve witnessed, seen and experienced through music in hopes that others find comfort in knowing that there is someone out there that feels the same as they do.”
If you like The Weeknd and The Neighbourhood then give CatchTwentyTwo a try. He produces everything himself and got woke when he saw Michael Jackson perform Billy Jean on Youtube. I had the same experience. Moreover, I love his quote, “listen to people, listen to criticism as well as the good words, treat them the same, compare and contrast and how you can make your next idea better”. Give Won’t Wait Anymore a stream.
World traveler and singer-songwriter River Iris released the uptempo electro pop track So Tempting. She was born in Japan and attended schools in South Carolina and California. While most ask if it was a difficult transition, River responds, “Overall, it sparked an appreciation for change in me that furthered my enchantment with the creative process, a place where I am free to be childlike and playful.” Give it a listen.
Up and comer Marana Blake released a new single Fun For The Summer. It’s very reminiscent of her debut single California Waves – atmospheric and trancey. Think Lana Day Rey meets Radiohead.

The singer songwriter was born in Chicago before venturing Southwest.
Lady A is swallowed up in controversy. Do you remember when Lady A dropped Antebellum because it had ties to the period of history before the Civil War? Well, they took the name from a black blues artist Anita White who goes by Lady A.
Some critics called it a hasty decision. Now the Nashville trio is suing the black female black artist.
Anita White aka Lady A. accuses the trio of taking her name and propagating racism. She told Rolling Stone, “At this point, I’m not surprised by anything they would do,”. “When they talked about how talks broke down, they never talked outside of trying to get me to do what they wanted me to do, which is coexist, and that’s something I never wanted. I stand by that. I’ve said it so many times. And in our conversations, I told them, I didn’t think coexistence would work.”
I’m not sure how long the country band (Lady Antebellum) will continue with the lawsuit considering thousands of people took to social media, voicing their opposition to the lawsuit.
As one commentator said, “I’m changing my name to Dave and then suing you for already being named Dave.”
