Vanessa Van Deusen’s new track Hey! (Are you a lot like me?) is a refreshing and upbeat addition to the electro-pop scene. With its hints of early 80s new wave and pop influences, the track is a perfect blend of old and new, reminiscent of Blondie’s sound.

Van Deusen, who hails from Pennsylvania, cites Queen, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and Taylor Swift as her influences, and this is evident in the catchy and pop-infused beats of Hey! (Are you a lot like me?). The track is all about finding connection and relating to others, a theme that is very relevant in today’s society. CONTINUE READING

Anna Rose, the critically acclaimed singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer based in Nashville, has recently released a stunning indie-rock ballad titled “Alameda.” The song, which is about the breakup of her marriage, features Rose’s emotive vocals and combines the styles of Fleetwood Mac and Sheryl Crow. The autobiographical track is about the fantasy of a tiny island off of San Francisco that Rose wanted to run away to during a difficult time in her life. “Alameda” serves as a taste of what listeners can expect from her forthcoming project, “Last Girl of the Rodeo,” which will be released single by single over the next year.

Composed of seven tracks totaling just under 23 minutes, “Last Girl of the Rodeo” is a highly personal concept record that showcases Rose’s songwriting and vocal prowess. The project explores a diverse sonic spectrum and features nuanced conceptual narratives. For this record, Rose worked with GRAMMY-nominated producer and engineer Paul Moak and refused to be limited by labels, managers, or conversations about what the single should be. The result is a refreshing and honest record that reflects Rose’s quest for integrity. CONTINUE READING
