Paul j clark afterglow avaliveradio.png

Artist: Paul J. Clark

New Release: Afterglow

Genre: Alternative rock

Located in: Nashville, TN, USA

The latest single from songwriter Paul J Clark, this song is about the longing to return home while searching for the fulfillment found in the responsibilities of life. Inspired by the Voyager space probe, the golden record it carries containing a time capsule of information about all of us, and a picture it took of Earth from over 4 billion miles away.

Written in the first person from the perspective of Voyager (a satellite of sorts), it’s an abstract metaphor grounded in very real human experience. This song is heavily influenced by the sounds from the ’90s. There are two conflicting emotions battling for resolution throughout the song. This is reflected in the song instrumentation and structure. It combines driving rock guitars with symphonic instrumentation to effortlessly weave together genres into something both nostalgic and new. Musically, it brings to mind guitar-driven songs from the likes of Collective Soul, Linkin Park, Train, Weezer, and Tom Petty.

Matteson Gregory avaliveradio.png

Artist: Matteson Gregory

New Release: Comfortable

Genre: pop

Located in: : Branson, MO

Taking inspiration from her idols like Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift, this new artist on the rise has just released a single that speaks from her heart as a creator. Matteson Gregory said, ‘I was listening to a lot of Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift when I was writing the song so those two definitely had an impact. Especially with the thunder drums which I got from listening to Taylor's reputation. The song itself is about finding that person who makes you feel comfortable being in love and most importantly being yourself. This song means so much not only because it's my first single but because it's so personal to me. I never thought I would write a song like this until I met the person who inspired it. “

I've been busy playing at local venues as well as local festivals and making trips to Nashville to continue recording. I am actually working on going to record my next single in August so I am soooo excited about that!

Artist: PhilAhsophie

New Release: Reflections

Genre: Conscious Hip Hop

Located in: Austin TX

My track titled "Reflections" focuses on awareness & perspective. My music provokes deep thoughts & provides insight on relative topics that is common among everyday people. Including the actual display of talent focused on rhyme skills and thought projection through lyrics...

I feel that this release will provide listeners with insight about me as a recording artist and what my standpoints are regarding hip hop. Including the use of critical thinking and analytical skills within rhyme schemes and lyrical flow. At this point, I am glad to be recording and releasing tracks to be heard by current and future fans.

Chanidu where are you now avaliveradio .png

Artist:  Chanidu

New Release: Where are you now

Genre: Alternative

Located in: Edison, New Jersey USA

A love song about promises and the process of being swept away by cliche. It can happen to anyone, sometimes you find someone and you are convinced this is the one but when you start looking closer you find something else contrary to your perception of the person.

What do you do? You come to realize that it is hard to trust someone unless you are absolutely sure you can't go wrong.

This is a single from my yet to be titled album. The two titles I am considering are "Visible love" which talks about the good-hearted helping the homeless and "No Love" which talks about the stereotypes that show nonchalant attitudes to the less privileged.

I'm still in the middle of this process and putting a new album together can be challenging but it's exciting when you are passionate about music, it’s worth the effort.
