Bay Area singer-songwriter Sophia St. Helen delivers a captivating new track titled “To Where and Where From.” The song is infectious, minimally produced, and hits all the right notes. Sophia seamlessly blends folk and Americana, evoking the greats from the ’60s and ’70s, like Carly Simon and Linda Ronstadt.

“This is a song about transience and change, about following your gut down whatever road it may take you,” says Sophia.

The song would be a perfect fit for Spotify’s Dream Vibes or Folk & Friends playlists. Check out the video here.

Look out for up-and-coming pop artist, writer, and producer Drew Schueler, who has just released his latest single, “This Is Where.” I’ll be honest, it’s very reminiscent of Lewis Capaldi in terms of lyrics, phrasing, and melody, but it’s good—really good. The track is one of seven from his upcoming EP, Vulnerable for Once, set to release later this year.

Schueler has already made significant strides in his career. He was the Grand Prize winner of the 2023 Nashville Songwriters Association International Song Contest, wrote K-pop star D.O.’s hit “Somebody,” and produced Zoe Clark’s first EP and hit single “Last One Standing.” Under his personal artist project, Schueler has released 24 songs, attracting 5.75 million total streams.

If you’re in the mood for sad pop, give “Life Without Me” by Ella Eliza a try. This song, suitable for the sad and lonely, offers a glimmer of hope. While most indie pop songs lack a punchy anthemic chorus, this one delivers, setting it apart from the rest.

Ella sings, “I lost my way, you lost your faith in what is left of us, yeah and they say… so don’t give up, there’s two of us.”

The track could fit well on Spotify’s Late Night Vibes playlist.

The accompanying video is directed by filmmaker Frankie Joe Gommon. Using storyboarding, performance shots, and set pieces, the video adds an extra layer to Ella’s lyrics.
