HRTLSS | “Where Do I Belong”
The HRTLSS musical journey began after dropping out of high school, and building himself an impressive reputation in the screamo/metal scene under a former alias. He is back with a new track, “Where Do I Belong.” This is an intense song. Everything from the instrumentals, to the vocals, it is all really deep, in the best way possible. The atmosphere that this song creates is very memorable. Such a great performance by a super talented artist. Make sure to add this one to your playlists.
KID TRAVIS | “LOSE MY WAY”
We have previously featured KID TRAVIS. Now he is back again with a new track, “LOSE MY WAY.” This is such an upbeat track that kicks up the energy and never lets up. The backing track is really compelling and compliment his vocals really well. He has smooth voice and he gets to show it off throughout the track. Definitely one that you should watch out for. Make sure to add these to your playlists.
Mykyl and Todd Tran | “Never Say No”
Mykyl and Todd Tran are back with a new track, “Never Say No.” This is such a cool track. The backing track is really compelling and sets the vocals up throughout the song. Vocally, it is a stunning performance. It is cool that they keep up the energy of the song, all while not losing the essence of the song. It is a catchy single that deserves to be added to your playlists.
Phillip LaRue | “It All”
As a songwriter, Phillip LaRue has worked with a slew of renowned artists, including co-writing Tyler Farr’s #1 country smash “Whiskey in My Water,” as well as Jon Pardi’s hit single “Night Shift,” both of which were certified platinum. Phillip just released a new track, “It All.” He knocked it out of the park with this new single. It has more of an acoustic feel to it, which focuses more on his vocals. This is important, considering how strong his voice is. Such a refreshing release that needs to be added to your playlists.
Robin Schulz | “Sun Will Shine”
DJ and producer Robin Schulz has teamed up with Scottish singer Tom Walker for their uplifiting new single, “Sun Will Shine.” Schulz described his single as “the perfect soundtrack for a sunset.” Of collaborating with Tom Walker, Schulz said, “I’m a huge fan of his and finally it worked out that we could release a single together. That fact that Steve Mac co-wrote the track is also a big honor.” The new track is super uplifting and puts the vocals at the front and center of the track. The production and the mix are on point as well. Such a well done song that needs to be added to your playlists.
Samantha Margret | “Self Disrespect”
I first met Samantha Margret at the 2022 Durango Songwriters Expo in Ventura, California. She even had the chance to perform there. When she got on stage, it was just her and a piano, which was complete magic. She is back with a new track, “Self Disrespect.” The new single has a heavier feel to it and really puts her vocals at the forefront of the track. She has always had stunning vocals, and this is no exception. She does a great job at capturing the emotion of the song, all while never losing the message of the song. Make sure to add this one to your playlists.
