Pop Rock Band HAAS Announces Upcoming Debut EP “Love & Loss,” Out 5/17

img_9040

Virginia-based pop/rock project HAAS have announced the upcoming release of their debut EP, “Love & Loss,” out on all digital music platforms 5/17/19. Having released two introduction singles earlier this year, “Behind Those Eyes” and “Mama Always Told Me,” HAAS has been spending time crafting and perfecting their energetic pop/rock fusion. Approaching the genre with confidence, lead vocalist Sam Haas injects the music with heart ache, power, and an authenticity that can’t be mimicked. Although new, HAAS knows their sound (think of a Kelly Clarkson/The Veronicas/Ashlee Simpson modern combo), and takes it on with emotion. The 5-track EP will also be promoted with an EP release show at Jammin’ Java (Vienna, VA) on June 10th.

HAAS is a pop/rock band from Virginia. The name HAAS stems from lead vocalist Sam Haas, who decided to pay tribute to not only her family name but her late grandfather who inspired her through his music. After years of playing around with names and ideas, HAAS became the official name in 2018. Through the use of catchy melodies, rhythmic guitars, and expressive lyrics, HAAS has been able to marry the pop/rock sound. The group uses music not only as an outlet for themselves, but want the music to be an outlet for others. They draw on personal hardships, such as loss, strained relationships, bullying, depression, and anxiety, but also hardships within the world today. HAAS strives to promote a place of safety and inclusivity, where it is okay to be who you are and forget about the real world for a minute. HAAS has discussed being bullied and scared of being who they are and by embracing themselves, they hope to inspire others to do the same; “love who you are and don’t be afraid to do the things you want.” Their new single “Mama Always Told Me” is available on all digital platforms NOW. “Love & Loss” will be released on 5/17/19.

HANNAH GRACE Shares New Track ‘Sleepwalking’

SHARES NEW TRACK
‘SLEEPWALKING’
YOUTUBE / SPOTIFY

THE BED YOU MADE
NEW EP OUT NOW
WATCH THE LIVE PIANO VIDEO OF ‘THE BED YOU MADE’ HERE

Hannah Grace has shared ‘Sleepwalking’, the latest and final track to be taken from her new EP, The Bed You Made, out now via Never Fade Records.

The track opens with Hannah’s vocals delicately draped over an emotive and elegiac piano, both taking turns to glide over one another in sonic bliss. The soft and passionate verses steadily build towards an eruption of emotion, a beautiful and breath-taking crescendo.

Hannah reveals, “I wrote ‘Sleepwalking’ after I had just moved to London to do music full time.  I felt completely overwhelmed and swallowed up by London and felt like the reality of it was very different to the dream world in my head.  I wrote it with my good friend Jessica Sharman and I guess the song is about wanting a dream to wake you up and become part of your reality. This song completes my EP ‘The Bed You Made’ and I am so proud of it and happy to have it out in the world.”

Throughout The Bed You Made, Hannah’s incredible vocal abilities take centre stage amid minimalist musicality, with stripped back and raw production echoing its lyrical content. The result is a moving and timeless collection of tracks – The Bed You Made, ‘Different Kind Of Love’ and ‘Almost’ – that ranges between the uplifting and gloriously cathartic.

Hannah combines stunning vocal abilities – capable of weaving seamlessly between the passionate soulfulness of jazz, the heartbreak and pain of blues and the sweet melodicism of pop – with a flair for emotive songwriting.

The EP was co-written with her friends and collaborators Martin Luke Brown, Gabrielle Aplin and Jessica Sharman, and its release follows her recent appearance on Sara Cox’s ITV show, which saw her stun viewers with performances of her single ‘With You’ and a stirring piano version of ‘Praise You’.

With support from both radio and TV building, 2019 looks set to be the year that catapults Hannah into mainstream awareness.

‘RUN ME DOWN’
NEW SINGLE RELEASED
WATCH THE BRILLIANT VIDEO HERE

Dan Owen has released his brand new single ‘Run Me Down’. The new song finds Dan making a bold return and is the first taste of new music since the release of his highly acclaimed debut album Stay Awake With Me last year.

Building on the sound from his debut album he brings a new roots-rock direction to his unmistakable jaw dropping vocal abilities.

The song reflects Dan’s development and journey, from the early days of playing pubs in his Shrewsbury hometown to becoming an international touring artist.

Having played across the world with the likes of Jake Bugg, Kaleo, Birdy, Alice Merton and Imelda May and completing numerous sold out headline tours across the UK, Europe and US, he has gained new perspectives, independence and direction along the way.

The ‘Run Me Down’ video finds Dan putting a dash of Hollywood into his Shrewsbury roots and captures an intense captivating road trip through the English countryside.

As one of the UK’s most exciting, highly praised and distinctive voices, Dan’s music has now clocked up over 30 million streams on Spotify alone. He has received great support from both Radio 1 and Radio 2 and massive critical acclaim.

KIM CHURCHILL Shares New Single ‘When Everything Comes Undone’

NEW SINGLE
‘WHEN EVERYTHING COMES UNDONE’

TAKEN FROM THE I AM EP
OUT NOW
LISTEN HERE

UK & EUROPEAN TOUR THIS MONTH
INCLUDING LONDON, JAZZ CAFÉ

Australian singer Kim Churchill has shared his new single, ‘When Everything Comes Undone’, taken from his I AM EP, recorded and co-produced by house and hip-hop producer Vincent Kottkamp, with additional production by Chris Collins (Gang of Youths, Middle Kids, Ruby Fields).

Written and recorded in Berlin, I AM is seven songs of uplifting, alluring and melancholic indie-pop. Kim describes the creative process and motivation behind the record, “‘I AM’ was an exciting and explosive time of creativity for me. It marked the exciting beginning of my new 4 part E.P. collection. Berlin swept me away in all its beautiful counter points-from the gritty streets covered in colourful graffiti to the deep forests and quiet, summer fields. Working with Vince in his studio was full of magic and the different styles of music we’re both into collided in a beautiful way. I couldn’t be more proud!”

I AM opens with the anthemic new single ‘When Everything Comes Undone’ and the critically praised, warm and bounding ‘After The Sun’. Sombre and heartfelt ballad ‘Look Too’ tapers down the mood momentarily, ensnaring the heartstrings with its warm and textured brooding sonics, before the slow building and eclectic ‘The Sunroom’; a dreamy and full sounding production that meticulously melds electronic and organic instrumentation, while Kim’s endearing vocals soar effortlessly above.

Fourth track ‘Fallen Rainbows’ is another upbeat number driven by its deft guitar work, samples and infectious chorus. ‘As I Need It’ picks up the dynamic again with stomping percussion. The EP closes out with the blues infused ‘All I Remember’; a track where Kim and Vince both really seem to bounce off each other’s natural influences in a playful and organic way.

A traveler as much as an artist, Kim has lived on the road for years, but it was no longer enough just to pass through; for Kim it was time to show that world in his songs. This is Kim showing the value of a new way of thinking, writing and living.

I AM is the first installment of a four-part EP series where each record taps into the people and environments of some of Kim’s favourite parts of the world. While Berlin is a city known for its buildings, culture and nightlife, it was the areas where the ‘built’ and ‘natural’ sides of Berlin collide and connect that drove the record.

The exciting and unique new project will also see Kim release an additional three EP’s over time, that were written and recorded in Canada, Australia and the UK respectively, in collaboration with local artists and producers. The juxtaposition of styles between Kim’s acoustic and organic sounds with Vince’s electronic, beats influences has created something truly unique and special.

In the coming weeks Kim will set off to tour I AM in South Africa, Germany, Netherlands, France, United Kingdom where he will play London’s Jazz Café on May 28th, before finishing in his homeland of Australia.

The UK and European dates can be found below, and tickets are available here.

GABRIELLE APLIN Releases Beautiful Video For New Single ‘Nothing Really Matters’

‘NOTHING REALLY MATTERS’
VIDEO RELEASED
WATCH HERE

PLAYING SUMMER FESTIVALS
GLASTONBURY, BOARDMASTERS, ONBLACKHEATH

Gabrielle Aplin has released the beautiful video for her new single ‘Nothing Really Matters’.

The enchanting video is an artistic representation of the varying degrees of mental state that come with self-acceptance.

Regarding the video Gabrielle says, “It was really great to work with director Joe Connor again. I wanted to make something that represented the different mind-sets and feelings involved with letting go, or opening up and taking a risk. Reflecting the anxiety, excitement, confidence, restlessness and hesitance. Joe drew inspiration from the single artwork as a starting point to create a video that felt like a series of still lifes and photographic portraiture brought to life with the dancers, dressed in padlocks and keys to symbolize unlocking and opening up.”

‘Nothing Really Matters’ features gleaming glacial production from Lostboy (Mabel, Anne-Marie, Liam Payne) and finds Gabrielle celebrating positivity and self-love.

Explaining the single Gabrielle says, “‘Nothing Really Matters’ is about the battle between the excitement of wanting to open up, and the fear of opening up. I was having one of those days where I questioned the validity and importance of everything around me, and how much time, energy and thought I gave to things that really, didn’t matter. It’s about focusing on what’s really important to you.

“I wanted to push myself vocally, challenge the way I think about structure in a song, experiment with how I say what I need to say lyrically, whilst still focusing on what it is that makes me the artist I am. This song has really pushed me and surprised me and I’m so excited to release it into the world!”

‘Nothing Really Matters’ follows the release of ‘My Mistake’ late last year, which saw Gabrielle strip back on production and bare her soul on the searingly honest and beautiful piano ballad.

The songs are taken from her forthcoming third album, due for release later this year through AWAL. The major global deal is a new partnership between AWAL and Gabrielle’s own successful label Never Fade Records.

The wonderful diversity of Gabrielle Aplin as both a pop star and songwriter are displayed in the new songs. Whether she is singing a stripped back piano ballad or a huge pop song, her lyrical content and emotive vocal delivery remain at the forefront of her music.

The singles mark an exciting new chapter for Gabrielle Aplin as she is set to release her brand new album, which features some of her most personal lyrical moments alongside a breadth of music and influences not yet heard from her before.

Fans will be able to get the first taste of her new music live at summer festivals this year. Gabrielle Aplin has been announced to perform at Glastonbury Festival on the Acoustic Stage as well as Boardmasters Festival and OnBlackheath. She has more live dates to be announced soon.

FURTHER INFORMATION ON GABRIELLE APLIN
From originally establishing herself as a teenage internet sensation, posting covers to YouTube, Gabrielle Aplin has ridden a whirlwind career of success.

Actor Omar Chaparro Steps Up With One of the Most Iconic Pokémon in POKÉMON DETECTIVE PIKACHU

Written by Jesus Figueroa

Actor Omar Chaparro was surprised to have gotten to be a part of “Pokémon Detective Pikachu,” a movie based in the universe of the global phenomenon Pokémon franchise.

Although Chaparro has loaned his voice to cartoon characters, appeared in movies internationally and has a singing career, stepping into the role of Sebastian the Charizard trainer was something different.

The role which directly affects the storyline had Chaparro speaking lines in English, which is not his preferred language.

When Chaparro was cast, he took two months learning his lines and getting the tone of the character to a place where he was comfortable, then on set the director decided to change things up.

Chaparro said English may not have been his primary language, but he was excited to change things up and work to bring his character out in the best ways.

POKEMON DETECTIVE PIKACHU
(L-R) Charizard and OMAR CHAPARRO as Sebastian in Legendary Pictures’ and Warner Bros. Pictures’ comedy adventure “POKÉMON DETECTIVE PIKACHU,” a Warner Bros. Pictures release.

Getting the opportunity to partner up with one of the largest and most iconic Pokémon in the series was fun for Chaparro, even if he was not aware of the fandom behind it.

Charizard has a major fight scene in the movie and Trainer Sebastian has some words to say before the fight begins.

Chaparro was able to use his imagination as he was working with a partner that wasn’t even there, but he said he felt confident that he was able to deliver a performance fans of the franchise could enjoy.

Coming off a record breaking movie, “No Manches Frida ,” Chaparro hopes to keep the success going with Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Pokémon Detective Pikachu.”

There are many times when you get rejected, Chaparro said, but you have to make the best of the projects you do get and put everything you got. After all, I am doing what I am passionate about.

Chaparro goes on to host a show in Mexico, continue producing projects and on to his next role.
