London is popping out lots of singer-songwriters. Look out for Matt Wills and the new track After Party. The track is very Ed Sheeran but Wills has his own original spin that blends acoustic pop, folk and electronica. He has picked up mentions from Clash Mag and Flavour and also garnered support from BBC R1. The singer-songwriter supported Halsey at Koko and O2 and Alessia Cara at Dingwalls. Matt notes, “After Party is about finding love in the most unexpected of places. A British after party is not glamorous like American ones so it’s not the height of romance. When I met my girlfriend at an after-party, I remember trying to act like the coolest guy and was telling her all these things to try and impress her and it just didn’t work.”
Anna Clendening releases the indie pop track If I’m Being Honest via East West Records. The Chapel Hill, NC native found an audience through YouTube music covers and a run on America’s Got Talent in 2014. The track Boys Like You clocked 50M+ streams and 60M+ spins on Pandora. The latest track was co-written with Noah Conrad (Steve Aoki, Backstreet Boys, BTS).
Lil Peep’s mother, Liza Womack, has sued the rapper’s managers First Access Entertainment for negligence, breach of contract and wrongful death. The lawsuit says the rapper was “stressed, overwhelmed, burnt out, exhausted and physically unwell.” The suit claims that his management coerced him “onto stage after stage in city after city, plying and propping” him up with illegal drugs.
First Access Entertainment says they “consistently encouraged Peep to stop abusing drugs and to distance himself from the negative influence of the drug users and enablers with whom he chose to associate.”
“While First Access is deeply saddened by Lil Peep’s untimely death, we will not hesitate to defend ourselves against this groundless and offensive lawsuit. We look forward to its swift dismissal.”
