Artist: Chris Driver
New Release: Transparent Hearts
Genre: Folk-Country-Pop / Singer-Songwriter
Located in: Brighton, UK
'Transparent Hearts' is about my Dad. He passed when we were all in the room. It was one of the toughest and most powerful experiences I've ever had. The song references the process of grieving through to now and reminds us of the importance of remembering the good times and laughing about the amazing memories you have. We all have these memories to keep with us as a family.
He always encouraged me with all aspects of my love for music. He was an amazing guitarist, arranger, teacher and all-round musician. His overall knowledge of music from classical, jazz, blues, folk, opera, musicals, rock'n'roll, and pop was insane.
Music, love, and laughter can get you through the toughest of times, and make the best of times truly incredible.
So big man this one's for you. Thanks for the music, love, laughter, and the amazing memories x ❤️ x
Note from the artist:
This song is the final release before the EP. This collection of songs captures the last 15 years of my life. A celebration of past and present and moving on.
Right now I am in the process of preparing the release of my first EP at the end of the year. This includes the three singles I have released already and an exclusive track. I am also in the process of writing for my new album.
Artist: Ryan Whooley
New Release: Same Dream
Genre: Rock / Alternative
Located in: New York, New York
This song is a commentary on the anxiety that many people share about the current state of events in the world and the way information is shared and abused these days.
"Mixing heartfelt singer/songwriter themes with driving grooves and thoughtful guitar playing, Ryan evokes hints of Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and The War on Drugs. Ryan writes songs that have a timeless, slightly haunted dimension and his voice and guitar playing are raw and so rich.
Ryan completed his debut EP, Same Dream, in the Fall of 2019 after working on it at various spaces (and his apartment) around New York City." Right now I am planning an EP release show in New York City and writing songs for a full album.
New Release: Breathe
Genre: Indie Pop, Singer-songwriter
Located in: Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Life gets overwhelming for everyone sometimes, "Breathe" is about finding that inner voice that simply tells you to take a step back and take a deep breath. “Breathe” celebrates life, the strength to live through tough and hard times and embracing the ray of hope. There is always sunshine after the rain, light after the dark, happiness after the pain and dark times. The Fedras music falls into the singer/songwriter and adult contemporary style.
We are currently in the process of recording the third track for our project and are working closely with our team on a few more tracks and are excited and looking forward to completing our first EP.

New Release: O.N.E.S ft. Michael Christmas

Running with the pack isn’t easy, people change it up so much but this Hip Hop song is for my Homies and Day 1's who never change on supporting my grind. You’ll hear some cultural references and real talk about career focus. At the end of the day, you only want to slide with your Day 1’s.
This is my first Big Feature with a huge artist out of the Same City. Planning a New Project "The Hitlist" which will have some of Boston's biggest artists.

Too many people change their behavior the minute they are in the company of others. These are strange times we live in and our Instagram culture seems to promote a false sense of self. A lot is happening in the world and things are moving quickly so as the song says, ‘Be yourself, Be Who You Are!’
