Check out Letter To You by Ohio’s Olivia Firman. You’ll like Olivia if you like like Ariana, Augeleria, and Aaliyah. She’s singer with a big voice, a broad range and sings with emotion. The singer songwriter released three songs the past year which you can listen to here. You can check out the Medium interview and get to know her.
Stef just dropped a new version of her song Sour which she retitled Sour Reimagine. It’s a good song so it deserves a remix. The first version is more europop while the second nears chill wave. But with a good song, it doesn’t matter the production. A good song can sound good in any genre . The 20 year originally from Alabama now resides in Nashville.
Are shows coming back? Concerts are taking place all around the world that are attracting tens if not hundreds of thousands of people. The shows are being organized, promoted and people are showing up. Even smaller shows are being organized as with rapper Tech N9ne.
The rapper played a packed show on August 8th at the Regalia Hotel & Conference Center in Lake Ozark, Missouri with over 1,000 people in attendance.
By and large, Live Nation is taking a beating as revenues plunged by 98% in the last financial quarter.
Thousands gather at Smash Mouth concert. In fact, frontman Steve Harwell told the crowd: “We’re all here together tonight! F#!K that COVID shit!”
At least the frontman lives his lyrics. Remember the classic track All Star? “Hey now, you’re a rock star, only shooting stars break the mold”.
Thousands of fans gathered in Sturgis, South Dakota. The show on Sunday (August 9) was part of this year’s Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, a 10-day festival that attracted 250,000 motorcycle enthusiasts. Artists include: Smash Mouth, Trapt, Buckcherry, Drowning Pool, Night Ranger, Reverend Horton Heat, Lit, 38 Special, Quiet Riot, and Big Skillet.
America isn’t the only nation that is drawing big crowds. Berlin just had a big rally that attracted 20,000 people.
I really like this indie electronic track Elephant Shows by Ida Hansson. She’s a Danish/Swedish singer, songwriter, and pop artist. She combines electro pop and r&b. I’ll be honest, the Swedes are always the trendsetters and ahead of the music curve. Heck, maybe they got the virus figured out as they reported no new cases with no lock down following the same trajectory as other nations that implemented harsh guidelines. Now check out Ida Hansson who I just added to KOAR’s Indie Invaders Playlist.
