Tough On Fridays avaliveradio.png

Artist: Tough On Fridays

New Release: Little Italy

Genre: Rock: Alternative Rock

Located in: : Georgetown, TX

Tough On Fridays is a rising alternative rock duo from Georgetown, Texas. Comprised of best friends Katie and Caleigh, the two have turned their shared passion for music into an exciting blend of pop and rock sounds! Inspired by iconic alternative bands like Paramore, Green Day, Basement, and Nirvana, Katie and Caleigh work together to bring a refreshing new sound to the alternative rock genre.

The band’s unique attitude and exciting new sound have garnered serious attention from fans everywhere. As one of 10 songs recorded, the recording of "Little Italy" further defines Tough On Fridays sound as something unique. While many reviewers have tried to categorize the band, the one thing they seem to agree on is that Tough On Fridays, with their edgy, hooky, anthemic songs, may have the ability to bridge the gap between rock and pop in a way that hasn't been done in some time. They refuse to be categorized as a "female-fronted band" as these two can write and play every bit as well as the boys. They have the look, but refuse to let that be the stepping stone that takes them away from the music.

Right now...
Tough On Fridays just reached its initial crowdfunding goal to fund the recording of an album in 2020 with the help of a contribution from a local radio station.

Artist: Liz Cirelli

New Release: Rise

Genre: Alternative RnB, vapor soul, indie RnB, folktronica,

Located in: London

This song is...
The world feels like quite a dark place at times, especially at the moment. This song was made to provide a short respite...a breath of fresh air. A sensual, catchy and uplifting love song with breathy, ethereal vocals and crisp, bouncy percussion. A memorable, rhythmic organ riff is played throughout the song - and soft pads and strings give the track beautiful layers of texture and emotion.

This song can be about a lot of things. It can be about freedom: to be free from the false and imagined shackles of human existence so that we can soar. It can be about what it feels to be light and liberated, weightless and boundless. It can be about having the courage to accept God's will: to go against the grain of society and 'rise' above the rest. It can also be about feeling stimulated by a lover's desire, to feel their warm embrace during the night and to seek comfort and pleasure in their physical body. Rise: to raise our vibration: to be aligned with love energy.

The music we are creating is...
designed to be deeply healing, deeper than magic...and something that will remain a timeless masterpiece...

Right now we are...
preparing to remix a track from Gavin Greenaway's new album, "Woven", and also preparing to start performing live shows of my recently released album, "Awakening". I've also been releasing music videos for my album - the next one is due to be released on May 17th.

What happens when you combine Jamiroquai, Boney M and Beastie Boys? You would have to make the impossible possible. This funny, ironic little piece of music is a reflection of our times and a hell of a groovy dance track to get everyone's feet moving on the dancefloor.

My first release as a solo artist. This song is an empowering upbeat song with a catchy hook and smart lyrics. It addresses the common issue of cliche pet names by those who are not your significant other. Everyone has faced this issue at some time. The song captured my personality and used my smart lyrics to convey my message in a fun, playful way with some humor thrown in. I play acoustic guitar on the track and other instrumentation would

The Music…
This release is important because it is the first single I am putting out to the world. I am hoping it will help me to build a fanbase that will continue to follow me as I release the next few songs that will become my album.

This independent artist is doing everything she can to reach a broader audience and to connect with them by having great quality music that they will enjoy and relate to.

The Time Apart pochette disque D Day.jpg

Artist: The Time Apart

New Release: D-Day

Genre: Pop / singer-songwriter cinematic

Located in: Toulouse, France

This song is the begining of the story of a character to ask ourselves the meaning of our life in the choices we made and their consequences.

The Time Apart made songs has it was part of a movie. Each song is a different point of view from a character who is waiting for his D-Day. The idea is to get inside the mind of this character and tell us about his feelings without any filters. That’s why the lyrics can sound as simple as naive. The production is very cinematic with strings, french horns and huge percussions mixed with electronic sounds.

Right now we are...
We are still producing and we are working to release new titles this summer.
