Jamaican dancehall superstar Sean Paul broke into the global mainstream in the early 2000s with his pop-friendly party jams, while a late-2010s resurgence introduced him to a fresh generation of fans via high-profile collaborations with pop and electronic artists.

 

Born Sean Paul Francis Henriques on January 8, 1973, the multi-ethnic Paul (his parents had Portuguese, Chinese, and Jamaican forebears) grew up comfortably in St. Andrew, Jamaica; his mother was a renowned painter.

 

He was a skilled athlete, excelling in swimming and especially water polo, playing for the Jamaican national team in the latter.

 

Although his education was enough to land him a prosperous career, dancehall music remained Paul’s first love, particularly crafting rhythm tracks.

 

He became a DJ after he began writing his own songs, patterning his style largely after Super Cat and finding a mentor in Don Yute; he also found contacts in several members of the reggae-pop band Third World in 1993, which helped him foster business connections.

 

Paul released his debut single, “Baby Girl,” with producer Jeremy Harding in 1996; it proved a significant success, leading to further Jamaican hits like “Nah Get No Bly (One More Try),” “Deport Them,” “Excite Me,” “Infiltrate,” and “Hackle Mi.”

 

In 1999, Sean Paul started to make inroads to American audiences; he was first commissioned to collaborate with fellow dancehall hitmaker Mr. Vegas on a production for rapper DMX; titled “Here Comes the Boom,” the song was included in director Hype Williams’ film Belly.

 

Also that year, Paul scored a Top Ten hit on the Billboard rap charts with “Hot Gal Today.”

 

That fall, Paul released his first album on VP Records. The sprawling Stage One collected many of his previous hit singles and compilation cuts, plus a few brand-new tracks.

 

His breakthrough arrived in 2002 with sophomore effort, Dutty Rock (VP/Atlantic). The Grammy-winning album featured the hit singles “Get Busy,” “Gimme the Light,” and “Baby Boy” with Beyoncé.

 

In addition to topping the Canadian and U.S. Reggae charts, Dutty Rock entered the Billboard Top Ten and was certified multi-platinum.

 

Paul followed with The Trinity (Atlantic) in 2005. The album peaked at number seven on the Billboard 200, his highest showing to date, and included chart hits like “We Be Burnin’,” “Temperature,” and “(When You Gonna) Give It Up to Me” with Keyshia Cole.

 

Four years later he returned with Imperial Blaze. Featuring the singles “So Fine” and “Hold My Hand” with Keri Hilson, Imperial Blaze topped the Billboard rap chart but did not capture the same mainstream attention as his prior two releases.

 

The loose Odyssey Mixtape dropped in 2011 and was followed a year later by Tomahawk Technique, a more pop- and dance-oriented album with production from the likes of Stargate, DJ Ammo, and Benny Blanco. While the set yielded a handful of international hits, it stalled in the U.S.

 

Although his sixth studio album, Full Frequency, topped the U.S. reggae chart in early 2014, it didn’t make much of a splash in the pop mainstream. The effort spawned the singles “Other Side of Love,” “Entertainment 2.0” (featuring Juicy J, 2 Chainz, and Nicki Minaj), “Turn It Up,” and “Want Dem All” (featuring Konshens), which helped Paul score his fifth Grammy nomination for Best Reggae Album.

 

In the years that followed, Paul would appear on notable singles by Enrique Iglesias, Major Lazer, and Pharrell Williams, but it wasn’t until 2016 that he would experience massive chart resurgence, appearing on hits by Sia (the Grammy-nominated “Cheap Thrills”), Little Mix (“Hair”), Clean Bandit (“Rockabye”), and Dua Lipa (“No Lie”).

 

After Paul signed a deal with Island Records, he returned to the studio to record his seventh album. The first single from the album, “Mad Love” with David Guetta and Becky G, arrived in early 2018. Mad Love: The Prequel was issued later that year and included collaborations with Jhene Aiko, Ellie Goulding, Stefflon Don, Migos, Tory Lanez, and more. Paul extended his prolific streak in 2019, pairing with J Balvin on “Contra La Pared” and Wiley, Stefflon Don, and Idris Elba on “Boasty.”

Rosalía

Rosalía Vila (also known as Rosalía) is Catalan-born, nuevo flamenco and Latin pop singer from Sant Esteve Sesrovires, Spain.

 

Her voice was described by no less a talent than flamenco guitarist Pepe Habichuela as “sharp and sweet, but with a bite, like the old ones.”

 

While her 2017 Los Angeles debut album garnered her attention from the U.S. public and earned her a Latin Grammy nomination for Best New Artist.

 

She has also been involved on the traditional music since her teens and has continued her other musical pursuits, from hip-hop to soul and pop.

 

She has collaborated with J. Balvin (Brillo), Pharrell (De Madrugá), El Guincho (El Mal Querer), James Blake (Barefoot in the park)…

 

Her music video for the pre-release single “Malamente” by Canada garnered 20 million views in Spain within three months; as well as 5 Latin Grammy nominations, and won 2 for Best Urban Fusion/Performance” and “Best Alternative Song.”

 

Its follow-up, “Pienso en Tu Mirá,” racked up another 15 million views in its first month or so. This is no mean feat since Spain’s population is only 46 million people.

 

Rosalia’s second full-length, “El Mal Querer”, was co-produced by herself and El Guincho. It was released in November of 2018. It debuted at number one on the Latin Pop Albums chart.

 

 

Ozuna

Juan Carlos Ozuna Rosado, professionally known as Ozuna, is a reggaeton singer and songwriter from Puerto Rico who writes positive, uplifting songs that encourage people to work toward their dreams while avoiding the use of profanity out of respect for his daughter.

 

He made his breakthrough in 2016 with the single “La Ocasion,” which peaked in the Top 30 of the Hot Latin Songs chart, and continued with a string of high-profile collaborations before issuing his debut, Odisea, in 2017.

 

A songwriter since the age of 12, he grew up in Puerto Rico, later spending time in New York City before his career took off.

 

In 2014, he signed a record contract and began posting songs online.

 

By 2015, songs such as “Si Tu Marido No Te Quiere” had become radio hits across Latin America, and he’d performed concerts in numerous countries.

 

In early 2016, he joined DJ Luian, Mambo Kingz, De la Ghetto, Arcángel, and Anuel AA on the track “La Ocasion,” which kicked off a modest chart run for the nascent performer. Months later, he released a remix of his song “No Quiere Enamorarse,” which featured superstar Daddy Yankee. The song racked up millions of streaming views.

 

He followed with “Dile Que Tu Me Quieres,” “Si Tu Marido No Te Quiere [Remix],” and “En la Intimidad,” all of which charted in the Top 30.

 

In 2017, he delivered his full-length debut album, Odisea, which featured guest appearances by De la Ghetto, Anuel AA, J Balvin, and others. Included on the album were the singles “Tell Him That You Love Him,” “Your Photo,” and “A Flower.”

 

In September, the album peaked at number one on the Top Latin Albums chart.

 

He also contributed to a handful of collaborations with Daddy Yankee, Wisin, J Balvin, Chris Jeday, and others. One of the most high-profile duets was 2018’s “La Modelo” with American rapper Cardi B, which marked Ozuna’s first entry on the Hot 100. His sophomore effort, Aura, arrived later that year and peaked in the Top 10 on the Billboard 200.

Craig David releases his new single, ‘Do You Miss Me Much,’ a perfect, fresh blend of Craig’s pioneering garage sound.

 

Whilst paying homage to his distinctive signature sound, the new single also shows Craig in a newfound light. It’s the same, instantly recognizable voice, but showing the progression of an artist that has truly come into his own – speaking to a new generation who are listening with fresh ears and sparking euphoric nostalgia in long standing fans of the UK’s infamous garage scene.

 

As one of the UK’s most loved artists, Craig has remained at the helm of his own unique, authentically British sound. A sound that made waves across the globe, making him the voice of one of the most pivotal eras in UK music, and in turn, making him one of the most successful artists in UK chart history.

 

Craig says, “This is for every one of my fans that asked me to drop a straight up UK Garage banger like I used to.

 

Can’t wait to drop this into my TS5 set at my SW4 stage takeover – It’s gonna go off!”

 

The release of ‘Do You Miss Me Much’ coincides with Craig’s debut ‘TS5’ takeover set at this year’s SW4 festival on the 24th and 25th of August, curating his own stage with a whole host of handpicked UK rising talent across alternate genres. Joining Craig on the day will be special guests Basement Jaxx as well as performances from Mabel, Big Zuu, Yungen, Nathan Dawe, Jax Jones, Martin Sloveig and Sigma.

 

Demand for Craig’s live performances is higher than ever following the incredible success of his world famous, critically acclaimed ‘TS5’ shows.

 

Starting out as the most exclusive pre-party in Miami, hosted in his penthouse home, Tower Suite 5, ‘T S5’ has gone on to become the must-see live event of the summer with Craig playing sets at the biggest festivals and clubs around the world.

 

Craig’s unbelievable sets combine singing, DJ’ing, MC’ing, incredible energy and the biggest party anthems which have helped turn ‘TS5’ into a global festival powerhouse.

 

After bringing ‘TS5’ to the UK, Craig sold out shows at London’s KOKO, Brixton Academy and even London’s O2 Arena in a matter of seconds.

 

In 2016 he took over Glastonbury’s Sonic Stage, bringing over 25k people to the tent and achieving the record for the biggest crowd at the stage in Glastonbury history. From there he made his Glastonbury Pyramid stage debut just a year later.

 

Now back in London full time, Craig and ‘TS5’ show no signs of slowing down. He’s recently returned to Ibiza for a record 4th season residency at Ibiza Rocks Hotel each Tuesday until 24th September 2019, bringing some very respected guests with him. Amongst the names joining him this year will be DJ Luck and MC Neat, MistaJam, Shy FX and Donae’o.

 

Craig says, “I’m excited to be bringing TS5 back to Ibiza for another season and have new rising talent also perform on the TS5 stage at SW4 Festival stage.”

 

Nineteen years since the critically-acclaimed, ‘Born To Do It’ changed his life, Craig catapulted back into the charts and into the nation’s hearts with Big Narstie on the platinum-certified single ‘When The Bassline Drops’, marking the beginning of his triumphant return.

 

Craig has since leaped from strength to strength on our airwaves and has been unavoidable on our TV screens and on the live circuit ever since. As a much loved and respected figure in British music culture, Craig has racked up an astounding 20 UK top 40 singles and seven UK top 40 albums in his career.

Discuss your recording experience with your producer.

I had a fantastic time with Invisible Heroes. They are three Berklee alumni working out of their home studio in Nashville, TN. It was a collaborative and experimental process for all of us and I learned a lot from them.

.

.

.

 

Discuss what comes first and last while creating a song.

What comes first for me is the emotion of the song. That is extremely important!

 

What comes last for me is the lyrics, which might be a bit backward but that’s how it happens for me. I like to really spend time on the lyrics so I like to leave them last.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the piece of advice you will give to a new artist.

Figure out what it is you have to say and trust yourself! Every person has something special to say and you have to stand up for that.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your worse experience in the music business.

I was playing at a tiny bar at midnight in Nashville. I had a quite a captive little crowd who seemed to really be enjoying my songs.

 

I then announced my next song as “my gay country song” (I am bisexual) and instantly the crowd soured. One guy downed his drink and left. The organizer walked into a corner and didn’t watch. The other people looked extremely uncomfortable when I sang about having a female love interest. At the end of the song one woman clapped, and it was a pity clap. Haha, I didn’t perform that song around Nashville again.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you deal with rejection.

Rejection is hard to take but I let myself feel hurt in the moment and then I move on. There is no point dwelling on it. Looking to the future always helps me through it! There is always a tomorrow and another opportunity to put your music out there.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what you are doing to impact the people around you.

My main objective is to be a kind, supportive person to the people around me. Happiness is infectious, and while it’s not always possible all the time, giving it to other people can really make the world better. I also really love supporting my fellow independent artist friends. I love being a fangirl to amazing upcoming artists!

.

.

.

 

Tell us the music that makes you happy.

I love the new Maggie Rogers album. It instantly puts me in a good mood. The lyrics, beats, and sound are amazing. She’s a really creative and genuine artist.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you make instrumentation to your song.

Since I write on guitar my songs tend to always have the guitar in them – I then think of a drum beat and place other instrumentation around that.

 

I also love to have a lot of backing vocals to layer the sound as I sang a Cappella in college and I love that medium of composition.

 

Ultimately though, it all depends on what happens in the studio. Anything can happen!

.

.

.

Tell us how you feel when you sing and your fans sing along to your song.

Singing is the purest form of self-expression that I have. My voice is not perfect, but I love how it comes from within me and I have complete control over it. I feel so much lighter and happier when I sing! When people sing along to my songs it’s a really cool feeling.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the goals you aim to achieve when creating a song.

I aim to express an emotion as purely as possible. I want the listener to feel what I am feeling at that moment and I use the songwriting and composition tools I know to try and make that happen. It’s a work in progress but that’s what I love about songwriting!

.

.

.

 

State your approach to writing.

I like to sit with my guitar for a moment and think about what kind of emotion I want to express. Once I have that I strum and sing for a bit and then find the melody. The lyrics tend to come last for me and I spend a lot of time working on them to make sure they fit. I then like to make a demo on my computer to save any extra compositional ideas I might have and then if I really like the song, I’ll bring it to the studio.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you plan to develop a unique music style.

I am in the process of figuring out just what that is. With the EP I experimented with a more relaxed vocal technique combined with pop instrumentation and folk guitar and lyrics.

.

.

.

Tell us if you are collaborating with other songwriters or you write alone.

I love co-writing! Some of my favourite songs are ones that I’ve co-written. With this EP, however, it was a very independent project for me so I wrote everything myself. In the future, I am definitely looking to co-write more and record those songs too!

.

.

.

 

Discuss your experience with fans.

Only positive experience! Having someone tell me that they connected with one of my songs can just make my day.

.

.

.

 

State your experience with booking gigs and shows.

I used to work as a Booking Agent in Nashville for other bands so I’ve learned a thing or two about it. It involves A LOT of strategically timed emails! You also have to make sure your music and the size of your fan base suits the venue. It can be tricky, but if you persevere you can definitely make it work.

.

.

.

Tell us if you consider a song placement in TV or Film.

I would love ‘Red Dust’ to be placed in TV or Film.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on ‘Red Dust.’

My producers and I set out to experiment with ‘Red Dust’ to make the sonic landscape reflect that of a desert. It is sparse and lonely and haunting and I think it would be great in a cowboy film or something! I love the Americana guitar riff after the chorus and it could be a cool motif for something in a show.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on your artist name and the title of the album.

My artist name is my real name. The title of my album is ‘Out of My Hands’ because I feel that that song from the EP really sums up what the whole EP is about. It is about dealing with change and being okay with it. Out of My Hands is quite an emotional song for me and my favourite song on the EP, so I wanted that to be the name.

Kodey Brims

 

Australian pop/folk artist Kodey Brims embraces honesty and growth with her new EP ‘Out of My Hands.’

 

After discovering her sound in the writer’s rounds of Nashville USA, Brims set out to create an EP that captured the intensity of growing into a young adult.

 

The opening track ‘Red Dust’ paints a vivid picture of feeling lost in one’s early twenties juxtaposed in the landscape of the Australian desert.

 

The title track ‘Out of My Hands’ is an honest confession of growth and accepting change with lush pop instrumentation and soaring vocals.

 

‘Neon Colours’ is an upbeat pop track erasing self-doubt and jumping into a relationship and the final track Thunder is a step into self-empowerment.

 

Recorded and produced in Nashville with fellow Berklee College of Music alumni Invisible Heroes, Brims set out to sonically reflect the story of the lyrics.

 

The ‘Out of My Hands’ EP creates stark desert landscapes, honest revelations and gathering storm clouds, beneath layered vocals and guitar textures.
