Avazesa, Marcus Patrick – Last Night

Tell us your real names, country of birth, date of birth and childhood experience.

My name is Ethan. I’m 26 and from Springfield, MO, USA.

.

.

.

Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills.

I started playing music at a young age. I began learning drums and 8years old then moved to guitar around 10. I started playing in metal bands when I was 15 and began touring right after high school. I then began playing with a major label pop band called Romance On A Rocketship. This is what exposed me to the pop side of the industry. After a few years of doing that I became very heavily involved in drugs and drinking. It consumed my life for a few years before I was finally able to quit most of it and refocus on music which then led me to creating this project, Avazesa.

.

.

.

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.

Genre wise it’s all pop but I like to blend elements of r&b, hip-hop and funk. With “Status” I wanted to bring some EDM elements in because I felt like it fit the lyrical content of people being consumed with electronics.

.

.

.

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.

I’m inspired by a lot of different things. My main goal in writing is to share a part of myself with the listener. Whether it be some sort of socially conscious track or just a fun, party track I want to shed a part of myself and also just make people happy as hell when they’re listening.

 .

.

.

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song.

There is no secret formula for a hit song. The internet has allowed for all kinds of tracks to get insanely popular that never would have before. These days it’s all about if this listener can relate lyrically, the melodies are catchy and that you bring something new to the table.

.

.

.

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist.

I would tell any upcoming artists to work at music like it’s already a paying job. Always continue pushing and practicing. With the amount of people making music now the only way to be noticed is to be different enough but still solid as hell.

Venture Still – Rise From the Ruin

Tell us your real names, country of birth, date of birth and childhood experience.

Chris Carter: Vocals/Guitar

Elvin Holderfield: Piano/keyboards

Rob Wiberg: Bass

Country of Birth: USA

Band Birthday: 10/13/2016

 

 

Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills.

If The Weeknd and John Mayer adopted Rusted Root and Taylor Swift’s child and raised it as their own = Venture Still.

Chris Carter is a tall man and plays guitar while singing. Elvin Holderfield is a short half-asian man and plays piano. Rob Wiberg has very large hands that he uses to play bass. Together they are friends. Together they are Venture Still.

Based around the catchy songwriting of their front man, Chris Carter, Venture Still blends thick organic textures with electronic elements to produce their take on alternative pop/rock. Formed in the fall of 2016, Venture Still’s music is the result of three close friends coming together to express their shared passion. Drawing from a spectrum of experiences, Carter’s lyrics embody the harmony and dissonance found in everyday struggles. Backing Carter, is bassist Rob Wiberg and pianist Elvin Holderfield. Inspired by bass greats like Victor Wooten, Rob provides funky slap riffs and creamy melodies that give each song a contagious groove. Elvin, a classically trained pianist and composer, lays down a bed of textures from piano to ambient pads.

 

 

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot.

We recorded this song at The Blasting Room in Fort Collins, CO. It was our first time recording in a fully professional recording studio. The idea for lyric video came from our love of nature.. Colorado has so many beautiful areas, and we went to one of our favorite spots in Fort Collins – Horsetooth Reservoir. Our singer, Chris, loves rock stacking, so we thought it would be great to make a video that blends many of our interests outside of music into a music video.

 

 

Tell us how long you have been in the music industry, your experience and your future goal.

We have been in the music industry for many years and have played gigs from the worst dive bars to charity receptions and near sold out shows at big venues throughout the Colorado area. Recently, we got back from a big CD Baby conference in Nashville and made many great contacts. For the near future, we are looking on really pushing and marketing our EP and getting our name out to a bigger crowd. We are in this for the long haul!

 

 

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.

We are inspired by a lot…but to make a long story short, we are inspired by the roller coaster of life.

 

 

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song.

Provide a memorable and not overly complex melodic hook, along with lyrics that are easily relatable.

 

 

Tell us the message you will like to pass to your fans out there. 

Live a life of passion.

 

 

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist.

Make sure you spend just as much time on the marketing and business aspect of music, as you do in the music creation process. There is a lot of white noise out there, and you have to make sure you have products that are top notch.

 

 

Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained.

Our band has only been around for a year, so we are just now pushing our name out there. Your blog is one of our first features. We spent the last year recording our EP and playing various gigs to get enough income to invest in both the recording and in all the marketing necessary to create traction and generate a following both online and through live shows. We’ve played over 100 shows in the last year, and have had several statewide tours through various ski/mountain towns located in Colorado. Soon we will do our first regional tour to promote our EP.  We have been featured on KCSU (Colorado State University radio) and 93.3 KTCL (Northern Colorado radio).

 

 

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.

Our studio recording time is pretty relax. We come in with a loose timetable of who does what when, but really we just go with the flow and see who feels inspired at the moment. We have quite a good rapport with the recording engineer that did our EP, so it’s fun to experiment and bounce ideas off each other. Elements of spontaneity helps a song maintain the human element, which can feel lost after all the pre and post production and mastering.

 

Name five biggest artists that you look up to like idols.

14. List of idols: Chopin, Victor Wooten, Nahko, Ben Howard, Daft Punk

 

 

Name the artists you have collaborated with before in your songs or artists you are willing to collaborate with in the future if you have the chance to do so. 

Right now, we’ve focused on collaborating with other local bands that are either near our size in popularity or bigger than us, so we can build a strong community. We’ve collaborated with bands like Pandas & People, Skydyed, Grayson Erhard. We are hoping to reach out to a national act in the near future, once we establish our name and music more through our debut EP Live Again.

Tell us about your happiest day and saddest day. 

Our happiest day was the release of our debut EP Live Again, which just happened on 10/13/2017. Our saddest day was when we all partied too hard and woke up in a strange, unknown location.

Arastella

 

ARASTELLA is an aspiring pop vocalist attributed with her resounding voice and prolific songwriting. Her bright attitude and commanding voice deliver an unmatched message to those who hear. She is an artist who embraces the meaning of being ever-evolving and wants to share that passion.

 

“Music is a language like any other, spoken to the heart and mind. People in all walks of life and any culture, relate to it—it’s timeless.”

 

ARASTELLA realized her gift of song at an early age and accepted a position in a premiere children’s chorus in Southern California. She also performed in several musicals, such as “A Time to Stand” and “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”.

 

Later, ARASTELLA found herself in Houston, devoting numerous hours to practicing classical voice. “I had to learn opera merely because it was so alien to me. Beautiful, but alien and because it was so different, I found it more attractive. After school, I often worked alone in practice rooms…just the janitors and myself left in those halls. I’ve always been driven to better my instrument and share it with everyone.”

 

As far as musical institutions, ARASTELLA attended the New England Conservatory, in Boston, and the Moores School of Music, in Houston. After years of focused vocal study, ARASTELLA’s urge to be malleable arose again. While in and out of classical studies, she began to incorporate strong elements of R&B, hip-hop, and jazz. This unique blending of musical genres is influenced by artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Celine Dion, David Bowie, OutKast, Jeff Buckley, and Patsy Cline, to name a few.

 

ARASTELLA is a musician that finds little comfort in stylistic bounds and she shares this vision with her resounding gift of song. With an infusion of ARASTELLA’s naturally poignant voice, heartrending lyrics, and intricate beats, her music is nothing short of hypnotic.

His productions are based on a live sound with acoustic instruments behind his signature vocal harmonies. As a songwriter he depicts “real life” in a fair and humble tone as a rational sort of individual.

Becca Byram – “Thanks For letting’ Me Know”

Tell us your real names, country of birth, date of birth and childhood experience.

Real name:Rebecca Byram-Wigfield

Country of birth:United Kingdom

D.O.B. 02/04/1976

Childhood experience: Grew up with self-sufficient parents and then sent away to boarding school aged 10.

.

.

.

 

Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills.

Becca was born in the UK to self-sufficient parents, then sent away to boarding school aged 10.

She won a choral scholarship to Clare College Cambridge at the tender age of 17.

Became part of the London soul scene, playing with the likes of Soul2 Soul, Jamiroquai and working at Trevor Horn’s studio in Covent Garden.

Moved to the U.S. not long after, securing work as a session musician and songwriter in NYC.and developing a reputation as a highly regarded analog keyboard player, synthesist and vocalist, and becoming a resident artist at the world renowned Hit Factory after catching the ear of Eddie Germano.

She signed to Caroline Records after Bill Laswell heard her and was swept away by her talent and her debut album, “Becca’s Smoke and Candy Store” was released. This opened the door to a long history of playing for other artists,and a catalog of songs and further recordings including “A Fair Forgery”, and two live albums, “Live from CBGB’s” and “Live from the Living Room”.

Becca’s imaginative keyboard parts and her ability to understand the balance between the unique and the familiar made her a staple ‘go-to’ keyboard player for many multi-platinum artists such as Toots and the Maytals, Moby, Mary J. Blige, Dead Presidents, The gathering Fields,Jennifer Lopez, Dido, No Mercy, Bray Film Studios, Keith Richards, Aaron Neville, Jess, Living Color,Freddy Jones Band, Blondie, Jewel, David Baerwald,Clint Black and many others.

This soon bled over to film work and song placement in several movie soundtracks including “The Heartbreakers”, “Any Given Sunday” and “Sweet November”.

Becca’s take on composition and performance is a breath of fresh air, giving her an edge in the spotlight on a stage where most artists sink into the comfortable and safe.Most recently, she partnered with grammy award-winning producer Dave Way to create her new album, “Blue Griot”, featuring her new single “Thanks For Letting’ Me Know”, which is already being met with considerable acclaim by industry insiders and features the talents of Jeremy Stacey on drums, Nick Mancini on vibes, Paul Nowinski and Sebastian Steinberg on bass, and Craig Eastman on violin and string arrangement.

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.

I consider my genre “pop/jazz, or “jazz/pop”! I love jazz changes, but I also love pop melodies and things that stick in your head. My background of 60’s and 70’s R&B and British rock does not allow any other kind of melody writing- the simpler the better. I love my synth bass and analog sounds, I love harmonies and am based in the harmonically through my classical early days singing in choirs.

The concept of the song was a ‘homage’ to the 90’s of NYC- Basquiat, CBGB’s, Fab Five Freddy the whole 90’s scene at that time that is now gone.We shot the video NYC completely “rogue”: no permits, running in and out of subways and parks and shooting quickly before the cops threw us out! It was 97 degrees and humid as hell. I was wearing a black jacket-which did not help. it was a lot of work but totally fun and worth every minute.

.

Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business.

There is a big noise right now about Harvey Weinstein and his inappropriate behavior. It’s a but funny he has been singled out, because dealing with this type of harassment was all in a day’s work for me, pounding the pavements in NYC trying to get my music heard. Getting ‘grabbed at’, execs masturbating behind their desks as they pretended to listen to my demo- this was par de course from the highest level exec to the lowest. I started off working in a studio installation company on 48th St, which was great, because I learned a lot about fixing my own keyboards, and my 7 ‘uncle technicians’ protected me from the outside world! We were below the recording studio Quad, and that was the first place I got a NYC keyboard gig. The rest followed quickly from there, and soon I was resident artist at the Hit Factory. I would walk around the huge facility at night, doing crazy stuff like using the elevator shaft as an echo chamber, or seeing how long it took to fry and egg on the G-series meter bridge…..fun times.

.

.

.

 

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot.

The video was shot in NYC in August. it was shot by Chris Cairns, who had been recommended to me by a friend I trusted. I had seen a bit of his work and really liked it. He was also very fast, and could shoot a lot in a little bit of time.

The producer of this track is the mega-talented Dave Way, who lives in Los Angeles. As soon as I met Dave, I knew he was the only person I wanted to do this record with. He has an amazing sensibility when it comes to female vocalists, and has a lot of experience with some amazing artists like Fiona Apple and Toni Braxton among many others. He listened to me play and sing for about 20 minutes, then he said,’I love the feel you have when you sit at the piano and sing at the same time….I really want to capture that- the timing, that’s the way we should make this record.” And so we did.!

.

.

.

 

Tell us how long you have been in the music industry, your experience and your future goal.

I’ve been in the music business from right after college until today. I’ve never done anything else. I have made a living supporting other artists, songwriting and accompanying them, coming up with complementary keyboard parts, enhancing their talent as much as possible. I’ve always been able to see the ‘big picture’ when it came to adding keys to another artist’s tracks; less is more- sometimes, I would have to tell them I didn’t hear what they wanted me to play, but heard less, or something totally different. I try to program sounds specific to the project and rarely use presets.I’ve been lucky to write with all sorts of amazing co-writers. I always encourage other musicians to write with as many peoples they can. you learn so much and sometimes, another chordal approach or a different style takes you to places you would normally never consider- that’s the beauty of music- it’s a pool we all drink from. I really believe in the album “Blue Griot”- I think it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. I want to see it reach the skies!

.

.

.

 

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.

Different things provide inspiration; an emotion, a scene you pass by, history, future, wishes, dreams, other music. I normally get a melody and lyric idea together- it may just be a fragment, but it is enough to begin a new song. The more I write, the less I write! meaning, I tend to simplify more and more as I get older. I love less, I love space and dynamic, I love strong melody hooks that stay in your head.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song.

Hmmmm….I guess if I knew the secret I’d be writing hit songs every day! I think it’s really important to write what you love, to abandon any thought of trying to fit a particular genre for style- do what you love. The hits will follow.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the message you will like to pass to your fans out there.

I’m super grateful how fans have rallied around this ‘different’ music- it seems to be refreshing to them and I think there is a huge space in modern music for real melody and playing! it can still be fun ad hooky- and the fans have shown me how much they appreciate it. I want to thank everyone who has been so enthusiastic about this record and this first single has been so gratifying to me. Thank you!

.

.

.

 

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist.

Do what you love. Don’t try to sound like others. Don’t listen to anyone’s advice and follow your dreams.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained.

I think I covered a lot of this further up the email- but here are a few other things- Worked as Assistant Musical Director to Saturday Night Live, worked with Robbie Robertson on the film score  to “Any Given Sunday”, traveled on Paul Allen’s yacht to the Bahamas with Peter Gabriel, worked with Lauren Hill in Florida for 4 weeks holed up in a hotel penthouse…..these are just a few of the incredible things I have been lucky enough to experience!

.

.

.

List Radio or TV Stations that are airing your songs and blogs that have featured you as well and send message to them via this platform.

The single has just been released but is getting good traction from a number of radio stations in UK and Europe already, and great reviews!

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.

I tend to record one or two takes at the most; generally I record vocals at the same time as playing either piano or B3 or whatever is my keyboard of choice for the song. I prefer to judge takes by performance and vibe, not accuracy. I do all the Background singing myself, so that takes a little time but I am the “fastest in the west!” I then overdub whatever is required; synth parts, Moog bass, etc.

.

.

.

Name five biggest artists that you look up to like idols.

Well! hard to name just five, but Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Joni Mitchell, Kate Bush, Mike McDonald.

.

.

.

 

Name the artists you have collaborated with before in your songs or artists you are willing to collaborate with in the future if you have the chance to do so.

I have written with many many other artists including Clint Black, Sharon Vaughn, Living Color, David Baerwald among others.I would write with them all again anytime!!!!!

Yung Profit- “Harvey”

Tell us your real name, country of birth, date of birth and childhood experience.

My real name is Desmond Clark and I was born in Houston, Texas on August 22nd, 1993. I grew up around a very rough neighborhood called Yellowstone Projects. I use to play basketball, but I gave that up and got more involved in the streets and music.

 

 

Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills.
My career has been moving. I’m still independent and working very hard on a solid catalog. I’m thinking about releasing a EP by winter time. I mainly have been perfecting my craft and meeting new people to gain more exposure. Now, I’m being interviewed by Broadtube Music, which is blessing! I rap and sing, so that’s a high skill that I value.

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.
The genre is Rap, but if you love music then you’ll look past the categories of music and feel the words and pain in my voice. Harvey was a song I had in my head for about a year, but I never recorded it until the hurricane hit Texas. The concept in the video is built off a dark and deep feeling of tragedy in a major city. I had a few news clips added into the video to give it the real life appeal. Everything is 100% real.

 

 

Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business.
When it comes to Yung Profit as a artist, I’m very laid back and observant. I love meeting people, hanging with my family and recording music. I want to be more than just a one hit wonder in the game. I want to be remembered as one of the best to do it and I wont stop until I get that goal. So when you mention ups and downs in the music business. I would say the downs are being fully discovered and getting my music to millions instead of thousands. The game now a days is built more for politics and popularity, other than talent in my opinion.

 

 

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot.
Well in a solo artist, but I’m a member of group called HV28. I’m starting my own label called For Eva Real Music. I work with a few producers and I’m always open to work with more.
The melody for the chorus Harvey was in my head for like a year. I never recorded, until the hurricane hit. Once I seen my people around the city and the south go through the storm, the first thing that popped in my head was “When it rains, when it pours, when storms, when it thunders” lol.. It means more than just the weather, that line I just mentioned means hardships and pain that you’re going through currently or day to day.
The video was shot by Swank from Anchor Life Films. Keith from INR set me up with him and its been a great relationship ever since we linked up. We literally shot the video 3 days after Harvey was gone. It could have been sooner if the flood wasnt as bad, but we made it happen. We have more projects coming that we haven’t released yet so stay tuned.

Tell us how long you have been in the music industry, your experience and your future goal.
I been in the business since I was 7 years old. My Dad is friends with a lot of big name artist in Houston like Big Pokey, Big Moe when he was alive and most of the Rap-A Lot artist from Houston. So I been in-tune with music at a early age. I just want to speak to the world and show off my talent. I want to be considered a great in the music game and to be able to feed my family off music. I also want to be a Owner and discover talent like J. Prince from Rap-A-Lot.

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.
Just day to day struggles and people I meet. Things I read, things I see and in-counter. Nothing is fake about what I write and rap about. It’s all real life experiences.

 

 

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song.
Either you got it or you don’t!

 

 

Tell us the message you will like to pass to your fans out there.
I appreciate the support from you all, and to my new fans soon to be. I will always bring that feel good music you’re looking for.

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist.
Anything is possible with the right attitude and team behind you. You have to be self driven. Just like my new single that’s coming out soon “Who say that dreams don’t come true, Its all on me, what what I do”

 

 

Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained. 
We are working on the EP right now. I have about 100 songs recorded, I’m just trying to see how I want to present them. Currently I’m just releasing some material to the world to create a buzz, before I hit y’all with my secret weapons.

List Radio or TV Stations that are airing your songs and blogs that have featured you as well and send message to them via this platform.
Harvey was featured on blogs and social platforms on a big radio station called 97.9 the box. My team and I are working on picking a single to be released on a few mix-tape’s that DJ’s want me apart of. We have a few things moving, but always open to more.

 

 

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio. 
I can come up with lyrics anywhere. I don’t like a lot of people in the studio when I’m recording, because I don’t like anyone or myself to be distracted. I take my music very seriously, so If I’m not feeling it then I’m not leaving or releasing it until its right.

 

 

Name five biggest artists that you look up to like idols.
Jay-Z, Kevin Gates, Boosie Bad Azz, Tupac and Z-Ro.

Name the artists you have collaborated with before in your songs or artists you are willing to collaborate with in the future if you have the chance to do so. 
My most recent collab is with Yung Al and DeeMoe Trill. They are artists from my clique called HV28. Both have names in the city. I ran into J-Dawg at a show i was performing at in Louisiana, so I want to work with him when we can get time.
I’m willing to work with any artist in the game that believes in my music. No matter the genre. I sing and rap so, I’m open for whatever.

History-making international star Lina has been confirmed as the opening act for the entire Little Mix UK tour starting in October, including 4 dates at London’s O2 arena.

 

The American Israeli-Palestinian songstress, who first found fame after winning ‘The Voice’ Israel will join the girls as their special guest for all 37 arena shows.

 

Lina, who already counts Alicia Keys and Will Smith amongst her fans, earned millions of video views on YouTube within hours following her breath-taking performance on the famous TV show. She has since gone on to perform with the likes of Queen and Adam Lambert, as well as a string of high-profile music festivals and appearances all over the world.

Steve Oriet – Diggin On You

 

Steve Oriet, friends call me Steve O.  I was born and raised in River Canard/Lasalle Ontario, Canada and currently live in Windsor Ontario.

 

I grew up listening to all genres of music, everything from rock to pop to rap and country.   In fact, my father is and has always been my biggest inspiration because he balanced an incredible business life with being a very talented guitar player and singer.   I loved listening to him play at weddings, churches, family gatherings and he is why my deep appreciation and love of music grew.

 

When I hit 17 my buddy and I took a spontaneous road trip to Grandbend, Ontario and on the way he cranked up some music.   It was all Tim McGraw and Kenney Chesney and from that point on I was in love with country music.

When I was 19 years old my Dad and I listened to CMT and Jason Aldean’s new song “Why”. I turned and said to my Dad “I gotta learn to play guitar so I can play this song”.   I learned on my father’s 6 string Washburn and from that day on, I was hooked.

 

I started writing music and was recently blessed with having the opportunity to collaborate in Nashville  with the Steve O’Brien on my song Stomp, soon to be released and Alex Seier on my song Diggin on You which is now released.    The one and only Johnny Dwinell and his fabulous team at DareDevil Production gave life to my dream recording these songs in Nashville.

 

Still more to come with my next release “The Way You Make Me”.   My life is entwined with Country Music and there is so much more to accomplish.
