How would you describe your new single?
Darker vibe. Sad, raw and an emotional short story. This song has a lot of personal meaning to me (patient x). .. I have always believed that 'What goes up, doesn't always come back down'. If you are struggling with depression or anxiety especially in social situations do not turn to drugs to appear "normal". I would like to encourage people who are going through this struggle to remember there will always be someone out there who will listen and help you. Think about the people you could be leaving behind and reach out to them for help.
What’s coming up next?
I am in the process of making my next single! Overdose has sprung forward so quickly. This has been a terrific experience and I can’t wait to bring another single to release.

New Release: Make A Meal Out Of You
Genre: Genre: Funk/Pop Sub-genre: Dark funk, dark pop
Sounds like: Portishead, Tori Amos, Amy Winehouse, Janelle Monae
Located in: Portland, Victoria, Australia
'Make A Meal Out Of You' is a dark minimalist funk song, with Sleuth's characteristic vocals, laid over growling basslines, sexed-up Rhodes, and delicate percussion. Make A Meal is part of Sleuth's highly praised cathartic debut album 'Umbra Anima', titled due to its themes exploring both the shadows and the light. Vocally Sleuth draws on her appreciation of Beth Gibbons, Amy Winehouse, and Tori Amos; instrumentally there are hints of Prince and NiN in the writing as well.
This song drips honey but has sharp teeth, hinting at the primal, sometimes predatory nature of relationships. Listeners have jokingly commented that the song is so hot that it belongs on a '50 Shades of Grey' soundtrack - so turn the lights down and the music up, but try not to get bitten. ;)
The music we are creating is...
'Make A Meal' is a very special song to me. I wrote the lyrics over two years, during which my perspective on relationships changed dramatically. I wasn't able to complete the final verse of the song until I'd worked through some really big issues and learned some big lessons about how humans behave with respect to relationships and lust.
I do this because...
making music is like breathing to me. There is not one day that goes by where I'm not singing or writing - it fulfills me, and gives me something to be proud of. When I perform I get to choose the best parts of me, my talent, and define them, and then share them with the audience. That's a rare privilege that performers get - the opportunity to choose how other people see them. When I perform Umbra Anima, and the rest of my catalog, I get to tell a story, I get to say something about what I've learned. Making music that will live on after I'm gone is an incredible gift!

New Release: VICE
Genre: Alternative, Indie-Rock, Post-hardcore
Sounds like: : Best Coast, Pvris, No Doubt, Bloxx, Wavves, Foo Fighters, Paramore
Located in: Plymouth, Massachusetts United States of America
This song is a nice Blending of Beautiful vocal melodies with a lead bass, loud drums, and powerful catchy guitars. All of our influences are very unique, and bring many different elements to our songs, some of our influences, just to name a few are, No Doubt, Converge, Prince, Kiss, Killswitch Engage, Dokken, Hillary Duff, etc. This song, in particular, has a post-hardcore, chill feel. Nice two-step beat, followed by a hauntingly beautiful vocal pattern. It's about waiting for the right person to come along, and all of the struggles, and heartache that comes before it. It's an important song to us because it shows how diverse we can be, while keeping up the ever-changing landscape of music today. The impact this song can have on you is to show, that a song can be uppity, powerful, sad, and relieving all in one. Like telling a story with music and the perfect lyrics over it.
We do this because…
it's what we love to do. Most of us have been doing this for most of our lives. What we love about performing, is just being able to entertain the people in front of us. Whether it's 5 people or 500, we always give 100%. The thrill of just knowing that we're sharing our music/art with other people is truly a monumental accomplishment that we're extremely proud of.
As of now we're finishing up and putting our final tweaks onto our first Full-Length album. Next, we will be working on a music video for our next single.
Artist: David Bucci
New Release: Dangerous
Genre: Indie Alternative Rock
Sounds like: Bon Jovi, Chris Stapleton, Bryan Adams, Ritchie Kotzen, Goo Goo Dolls, Keith Urban
Located in: Channel Islands, Ca
When asked to describe his new release in a few words, David Bucci said, "Dirty boots, blue-collar, indie alternative rock music. Dangerous, off the new album, Country Club."
I have so many musical influences, but most were either guitarists or singers (Ritchie Kotzen, Eddie Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix, Bryan Adams, Eric Johnson, Billy Idol, The Goo Goo Dolls, Keith Urban).
'Dangerous' has a heavy acoustic guitar and drum-driven influence with electric guitar layers and soling over it along with my lead vocals and backup harmonies by Robert Cross.
Right now we are...
preparing for the album's release, planning a new music video. Tour, not yet, local clubs and bars at the moment, but who knows, arenas and stadiums may be right around the corner.
New Release: Bad Girl

My music is uninhibited. This song is a fantasy that turns into reality. This music is a step outside of my norm. I am more of a concious type of artist so this single is refreshing to my followers. It has a night life feel to it. Smooth, sexy and grown.
I do this because music is apart of my life. I write to share different emotions and bring the truth into the light. It’s that light in my life that inspires me.
I am currently working on my second album and I’m really excited to share this new work. Performing live is on my agenda and continuing to build my brand and expand.
Artist: Collins & Streiss
New Release: Freedom's Captive
Genre: Rock, Commercial Rock, Indie Rock, Alternative Rock
Sounds like: not sure
Located in: Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada
"Freedom's Captive" is about our growing addiction to our devices, whether it's cell phones, computers, tablets, social media and so on, and this obsession and need for acquiring followers and likes in today's web of virtual existence. It's a compounding obsession in a lot of cases where we have all this freedom and ability to exist and do what we want virtually now, but at the same time are becoming captives to it!
This song involves a few other players and has more of an overall band feel to it. We are using our regular drummer (Davide DiRenzo) and have brought back our bassist (David Dawe) from one of our earliest tracks "Saturday Night" that he played on, and have a new member in our working group (Rob Vendrasco) playing lead guitar.
The song is upbeat, edgy and energetic and full of catchy melodies and hooks which is common in our music. It's derivative of our rock roots which has a broad range of artists and rich heritage.
Why is music important to you?
Music and creation are an important outlet for us. We try to observe and put into words and music what we see and experience in our lives on a natural and human level whether it's about love and relationships, political, world issues or even imaginary. Each song takes on its own shape and evolves on its own, from lyrics to arrangement, and is creating a repertoire that is becoming more diverse as we move forward.
We do have a lyric video for this song but have no plans for a full visual video. We hope that people will listen to music and not be distracted by the visual. There are no plans to tour at the moment. There is new material in the works, also a small 2 song EP which contains 2 songs (previously unreleased) from projects that we did together before we became Collins & Streiss.

New Release: Crispy Colors
Genre: Smooth Jazz
Sounds like: : Mezzoforte, The Rippingtons, Jazz Funk Soul, Brian Culbertson
Located in: : Stockholm, Sweden
This is a smooth jazz instrumental tune, featuring piano and synthesizer lead. It had a great groove with a full band and a horn section. It’s a tune making you feel good.
This is my second smooth jazz release and it defines pretty much the type of music that is close to my heart. This is just the beginning of my solo career and I am excited about the future.
I create music because I cannot imagine not to. I am brought up in a musical family and have been playing instruments all my life, and started composing in my early teens. Both my parents and my brothers are musicians. I get inspiration from all kinds of music, from classical to jazz, pop, and rock.
At the moment I am excited about my recent release “Crispy Colors” that it is being aired around the world. I am also beginning to compose and record a full album to be released next year.

Live your dream before it is too late like it almost was for me. Music is everything to me and I will never stop following my dreams!
My music is melodies and rhythms.
This song is a happy melody I came up with when thinking of friends, summer and parties. The world needs more music with good melodies that get stuck in the head!
Something that feeling sustains even when the song reaches the end.
Music is my passion and my heart! Music is my language! Music will live forever! The feedback I get from fans and listeners is giving me the fuel and energy to keep on making new music.
