Linnea Krepper

Linnea Krepper is an extraordinary vocalist that sings from the heart with her captivating vocals.

– Broadtube Music Channel

 

Linnea Krepper is an artist and songwriter who up till now has gone unnoticed by the big audience. “Strange” – say the radio stations on the other side of the Atlantic who have already discovered her music.

 

She moved from her hometown Linköping to Sweden’s capital, Stockholm. Setbacks turned into successes, and the once shy young girl thinks she is ready to overcome any obstacles.

 

Hard work and commitment have made her the woman she is now – strong, courageous and brave. She can say she knows who she is – both as an artist and as an individual.

 

Aiming to invest in an international career as an artist has always been the obvious choice for Linnea. Her popish sound and confident personality extends far beyond the borders of Sweden.

 

Her hunger and fearlessness have taken her future career a long way. Through her music, she wants to inspire others to stand up and fight for their dreams, just like she always has.

 

Linnea Krepper is a name to remember. With her powerful voice and strong personality, this young woman from Sweden has got her music to the USA on her own, and several radio stations have already fallen for her pop-sounding tunes.

 

Music has always been a big part of Linnea´s life. Ever since she was a little girl, she’s been singing in choirs and performing in musicals, dance shows and plays. At every graduation she took the stage and dazzled the fans with her powerful voice and charisma. Growing up she was shy and timid, but that soon disappeared during college when she realized the great potential she had, and that´s when her dream of becoming an established international artist formed itself. As an 18 year old she moved out of her hometown to study music. After some years of studies she made concrete plans in making connections with people in the business, writing songs and take every opportunity to perform for an audience.

 

Linnea has a certain authority that reflects in her music, and a unique mix of power and softness in her voice, which creates an extraordinary sound. With her independent and driven personality she’s already played live on Swedish radio, performed at one of the biggest music festivals in the country, had several interviews with Nordic magazines and released her own songs.

 

Today Linnea is just in the start of her future career as an artist. Her hunger and fearlessness will take her where she wants to go.  Even though the music business is a tough industry, the goal will always be to inspire others to fight for their dreams and have the courage to invest in what they love.

 

“Swedish pop artist Linnea Krepper set to release new single next week. The track is titled “Wanna Run Away With You” and this one is hot.”

​- Entrigue Magazine

 

“New Swedish pop treat incoming! Linnea Krepper has today released her new single ‘Color Me Blue’. It’s a synth-pop belter with a big chorus – one which Linnea knocks out vocally without a single strain.”

​- Unique M.U.S.E

Sempre Caoz

Sempre Caoz is back with a fresh production: the EP “Still Alive” will be on sale in March.

The mix of guitar, bass, drums and vocals breaks new ground: With dirty and powerful sounds, Sempre Caoz lives up to the band name. But, windy retro sounds are foreign to that guys’ nature. The dirty but authentic guitar riffs and the harsh vocal sounds are the reasons for that extraordinary power on stage. Fresh and expressive rock’n’roll conquers Austria and Europe. These tremendous energies have unloaded in Austria and Italy to an enthusiastic audience. Sempre Caoz proved their skills on the greater and smaller stages. They look back with pride on their settings and releases since 2010. Not least they had the honor to rock with bands like TruckFighters, Seether, Alexs Clare, White Miles and Krautschädl at concerts and festivals. To assure yourself of the power and strength of the messy rock ’n’ roll, you will find tour dates and news on WEBSITE

Michael Jackson -Thriller

It was the first music video that was a mini movie and so creative with dancing zombies; greatest video ever.

 

R-Kelly- Ignition Remix

A club in the limo bus and it was iconic.

 

Usher- U Got It Bad

I had it bad for a girl when that video came out and was a fan of him and Chilli both so that was also iconic.

 

Aaliyah- One in a Million

That’s one of my favorite songs from her and the video choreography was on point.

 

Weeknd- Starboy

BEAUTIFUL UNA PERFORMING IN VARIOUS COSTUMES AND SITUATIONS…

 

UNA HEALY ANNOUNCES NEW SINGLE “NEVER SEE ME CRY”, OUT MARCH 30TH & VOICE INSIDE OF ME HEADLINE UK & IRELAND TOUR

 

It’s been an incredible start to the year for Irish singer songwriter Una Healy. Earlier this month she played a run of festivals and shows including London’s C2C and a headline slot at Belfast’s Nashville Songwriters Festival. Now she returns with her first ever solo headline tour and brand-new music, announcing her single “Never See Me Cry” will be released this Friday, March 30th.

 

Co-written by Una with Nick Atkinson and Edd Holloway, Una explains “I wrote “Never See Me Cry” as an empowerment anthem for anybody who’s ever had someone walk all over them. It’s a big ‘f you’ to a lover, a boss or a friend that’s ever made you feel small or worthless. It’s a fight song for everyone out there who are sick of being dominated – the tides are turning out there and it’s clear that it’s our time to take back control’.”

 

Also today, Una has announced the Voice Inside Of Me UK Tour, kicking off in Killarney on June 15th. Una will then go onto play Galway and Dublin before heading over to the UK where she headlines Glasgow’s King Tuts, Manchester’s Deaf Institute and London’s Lexington. Tickets go on sale on Thursday 29th March at 10am.

 

Full dates:

Friday June 15th – INEC Acoustic Room, Killarney, Ireland

 

Saturday June 16th – Roisn Dubh, Galway, Ireland

 

Sunday June 17th – Grand Social, Dublin, Ireland

 

Tuesday June 19th – King Tuts, Glasgow, UK

 

Wednesday June 20th – Deaf Institute, Manchester, UK

 

Thursday June 21st – The Lexington, London, UK

 

As well as C2C, where Una played to a packed Town Square Stage, she also supported American country superstars Ashley Mcbryde and Ryan Kinder at their London shows a fortnight ago.

 

Last year, Una released her debut solo album, “The Waiting Game”, alongside her first single “Stay My Love”, a duet with Sam Palladio, the star of US TV drama Nashville. Una worked with some of the world’s most acclaimed songwriters and producers, including Grammy winner Amy Wadge, Ben Earle from The Shires and singer songwriter Jack McManus. The album weaves magnetic folk, pop and rock melodies into echoes of the country music she grew up with and is available to stream on Spotify:

 

 

Una found fame as one fifth of successful girl band The Saturdays and they sold over 5 million records worldwide and racked up 13 Top 10 singles and 5 Top 10 albums in just 6 years. The band also embarked on 4 nationwide headline tours and starred in 3 primetime TV series, including Chasing The Saturdays for E! which aired in over 40 countries including America.

Dave Whitcher Saga

 

 

 

 

I am a 7th grade mathematics teacher from Portland, Oregon. I’ve been a guitarist and songwriter for over 30 years. A successful Kickstarter campaign in May of 2016 funded the first ever professional recording and production of my original music, resulting in 5 songs coming out of The Sound Shelter in Franklin, Tennessee. Four of the songs are written with a female voice and recorded with female vocals. “Monday Morning Quarterback” is a more typical country/rock song, with male vocals.

These tunes were a cross country collaboration, with drums being cut first in Tennessee, followed by basic guitar tracks (played by me) and bass guitar recorded in Vancouver, Washington. Then, electric guitar tracks were recorded back in Tennessee and then I rendezvoused at The Sound Shelter with local vocal talent to finish the tracks, which were then mixed and mastered on location.

“Monday Morning Quarterback” has been accepted onto Pandora, as well as getting some traction with other opportunities. All other tunes have been welcomed on podcasts and some internet radio, as well as securing several sync licensing agreements.

Coastal Club

Coastal Club is an indie rock group from Cincinnati, Ohio. The group was formed in 2016 by a group of friends looking to blend modern indie rock with pop while adding a hint of surf music along the way. The group finds its center with slightly modulated guitar lines, dreamy synths, and tight drum grooves layered with fun, care­free lyrics about enjoying every aspect of life. The group’s favorite pastimes include long walks by the Ohio River shore and post-concert milkshakes.

 

Coastal Club strives to bring people together by singing about the most enjoyable things in life — which are often experienced best with friends nearby. Although landlocked in the beautiful state of Ohio, the group’s ironic band name finds its meaning when the members reminisce about some of the best times in their lives, which were often spent on the beach with friends and family. The band attempts to capture many of these emotions in their songwriting in order to portray a story that is both reminiscent and fun. So what does a group of beach loving hippies do in their downtime? On any given day of the week you can expect to find the band listening to their favorite Beach Boys record, savoring one of their favorite post-concert milkshakes, or enjoying a long walk by the beautiful shores of the Ohio River.
