TaniA Kyllikki has released her official music video for her new single WHY, taken from the up and coming album W.H.Y pt1 due for release July 31st 2021. Independent singer-songwriter TaniA Kyllikki has released a heartfelt new single also named WHY. This very emotional song is based on true events from her own life. And has already received a lot of attention gaining over 130K on Spotify alone in a short time frame. Being a victim of sexual abuse followed by years of emotional and physical abuse, TaniA has displayed bravery by allowing herself to be transparent with her fans by sharing her very traumatic experiences through her lyrics.
The “Lie With Me” singer has always been able to bring great storytelling to her fans with her lyrics that are very raw, vulnerable and beautiful. The music video of WHY gained over 30K in just a day of its release. It starts by showing a woman looking broken and defeatist. As the video progresses further along, TaniA is seen cradling her pillow with tears falling down her face as she looks vulnerably into the camera. Following after this scene, is a curly haired little girl playing the role of TaniA as a child who loved to collect seashells at the beach. It shows a time when TaniA was happy in her life before all the abuse began.
The emotional journey described by fans as being like a movie of TaniAs life, then finishes off with a close up of TaniA looking into the camera with tears filling up in her eyes. The music for WHY has been beautifully produced. The heartfelt music brings all the necessary emotion for each chapter of the song from start, build up, to end. TaniA starts off singing in her lower register which is filled with soulful heavy rich belts. As the song progresses towards the end, TaniA starts singing in her higher range that has a more angelic classical sound the higher she goes. This then finishes with a beautifully controlled high note.
TaniA’s fans desribed how she sang WHY as being a clever way to tell a story of a broken woman who refused to stay down. By singing in her lower register then transitioning into her higher register, this represents great strength from a young woman who has hit rock bottom, to then being able to get back up and heal from the traumatic trauma she has faced. This makes ‘WHY’ feel relatable for TaniA’s audience who may have suffered the same experiences. What TaniA has been able to do with ‘WHY’ is use her creative talent to take back the power that had robbed her of her self-esteem for years. By turning her pain into something positive just by breaking her own silence, will help others heal in their own suffering. Every type of abuse is a serious issue, whether it is sexual abuse, domestic abuse, physical abuse, or mental abuse. Being able to be open about abuse experiences will help and do something to heal wounds. Abuse is not love and TaniAs song WHY provides this very powerful message.

Sugar Loaf Walker is the solo project of artist, Vivek Ayer, which was born in 2009. His work, a set of winding, intriguing and imaginative instrumentals, has come a long way from its creative beginnings. Recording a set of demos in 2009 in Bethnal Green, London, Vivek took influence from the world around him. London’s sprawling urban landscape formed a potent backdrop, the changeable British weather set the tone, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy as well as various conspiracy theories all swirled in rich alchemy to form a set of raw instrumental tracks. “The Sugar Loaf Walk alleyway next to my flat gave the sound its name, and the first song I wrote was to become the first track on this album, The Late Summer.” says Ayer
Fast forward to 2020 and the chaos of the pandemic gave way to the inertia of lockdown. Vivek dug out those old demos and Sugar Loaf Walker was re-born. “The melodies of the songs inspired me to bring back Sugar Loaf Walker and finish the album, properly this time.” continues Ayer
He worked with a remote team bringing his original demos to life. Inspired by his mother-in-law Penny’s charming car license plate B9 PNY, he named the demo Benign Penny. The album title now has a new and deeper meaning as the artist sadly lost his wonderful mother-in-law in 2010. His daughter was born in 2015, and took on the name Penny, keeping her grandmother’s spirit with her. The album cover, is a photograph of his daughter Penny, caught reaching out to the Fender Stratocaster that you can hear throughout this record.
The album is dedicated to Penelope Ruth Corbett and Penelope Lakshmi Ayer.

How did you get into music? “I was born and raised in a small & humble town in eastern Cuba and moved to Switzerland before finishing my primary school. We always lived very humbly but I was able to take music classes and learned to play guitar from a young age.”
“When we moved to Mexico after primary school, I ditch the guitar and started writing songs at the age of 13. I would rap with my neighbor who was a cuban rapper as well and he would throw rap battles at his place.”
“We lived in a very crazy neighborhood at the time in Mexico City and as “the man of the house” I would do anything to help financially.”
“I started making money in the streets in every way possible to help out at home since it was only my mom, my sister and I.”
“I wrote songs as a diary to express my day-to-day reality.”
“During high school I went through lots of troubles and after losing some important people in my life & having some family issues, I decided to leave Mexico after a few years for good.”
“I had been staying at my Dad’s in Miami, Florida periodically while living in Mexico. But at that time it wasn’t an option to move to the States permanently.”
“Moved to London at the age of 22 where I did my personal-training school.”
“I spent quite some time back & forwards between Switzerland & the UK cause I had to finish up my Instructing-Sargent-Time in Switzerland.”
“Once I was done with that I moved to the States permanently, but Due to Trump’s politics, I got deported and sent back to Switzerland.”
“I went to the UK to stay at a friend’s house for a short period of time because I couldn’t find a job in Switzerland at that time since I had not planned to go back there.”
“At that point in time, I decided to tell my story through my songs.”
“That’s when I found Hot Money Studios where I started recording right away.”
“Ever since I travel between the UK & Switzerland all the time.”

Joseph C Guess grew up in a music family but didn’t realise his music talent until much later on in his life. Although he didn’t discover his music talent at first, writing poetry became an outlet for him as a teenager.
“I didn’t appreciate music earlier on probably because it reminded me of being the only son who wasn’t musically talented. I was more into sports back then. I think at the age of 14 years old was when I started listening and appreciating music.” says the artist
He started writing poetry in 2020 during the epidemic to release stress from this nightmare in this world. Then later that year him and his wife planned a vacation to Daytona Beach, Florida to celebrate their 9th wedding anniversary and 13 years together. He came up with an idea to get an unexclusive lease on an instrumental beat from J Grooves and then he wrote a song called LaRisa. “I wrote this song,” LaRisa” after my wife’s name to dedicate to her for our 9th wedding anniversary and it became so well liked that people including my wife told me that I have to show this song to the whole world. I hired a musician named Rex to sing it how I wanted, then the rest was history. I had the song made in a poem format on a canvas to read to her then played the song. She kept it together but was a little emotional during process. She heard the song and told me in a belligerent voice to share this with the world now!! So this is exactly what I intend on doing at this moment. I hope the people will like it.” says Joseph C LaRisa will release on all formats on June 4,2021.

The distortion in his vocals blend really well with the track as well as the track “Intoxicated” which features a newcomer by the name of DejaRae. His style resembles a lot of Fabulous and 50 Cent on how he can rap over singing and love hooks. I would definitely recommend BookOfNola2 if you are wanting to hear from artists which remind you of J Cole, Kendrick Lamar, and Jay Z.” says Nola B

After the Pulse Nightclub Shooting, Queer Singer-Songwriter Erene Mastrangeli Had No Choice But To Write Her Upcoming Single to Fight Hate With “Love, Shine” “Love, Shine”, the new single from Erene Mastrangeli, was released on April 30th on all digital platforms via Beige Records.
When Italian singer-songwriter Erene Mastrangeli heard the news of the tragic mass shooting at Pulse nightclub, in Orlando, FL on June 12th, 2016, time stopped and devastation set in. At the time, what had taken place at Pulse was the deadliest shooting in U.S. history, and it targeted her community, the LGTBQ community, directly, fatally and intentionally. She was practicing for a show when she heard the news. She stopped everything. She didn’t know what to do with herself, but she felt like a hole had opened up in the center of her body: like something went missing. She felt the sudden loss of 49 innocent lives — people she didn’t know personally but whom she felt were a part of her family. She eventually went back to the guitar because that’s the way she processes her feelings, and started playing a riff that became the guitar intro of “Love, Shine.”
“Love, Shine” is the title track of Erene’s new album, due out later this year. The song informed the rest of the album and it marked a huge shift in Erene’s writing. “I believe that “Love, Shine” came to me to give me a specific mission: to nurture love in people’s hearts and defeat hatred, racism, discrimination and inequality through music,” says Mastrangeli.
A phenomena that was paused only by a global pandemic, mass shootings have reemerged in Atlanta and Boulder just to name a few. “This song can’t wait any longer to be released,” she said. After these last two incidents, Erene Mastrangeli set a date to release “Love, Shine” as the third single of the record.
At first you may hear echoes of songwriters from the 70s in Mastrangeli’s music. It’s not an accident that she was nicknamed the ‘Italian Joni Mitchell’ during the recording of the album while recording in Rome. But half way into this song it’s clear that it has Erene’s unmistakable stamp on it through and through. Her unique use of harmonies and chord progressions creates infectious and distinctive sounds, perfectly suited to deliver such a powerful message with a seductive tenderness.
The anguish of her plea to stop gun violence and end the massacre of life is marked by an insistent drum beat in the verse. The plea finds an uplifting and glorious resolution in the chorus where she invokes LOVE to come over us humans and shine bright. The bridge builds majestically up to the last chorus with her backing vocals and electric guitars played by her formidable producer, Daniele Sinigallia. Recorded by renowned musicians she met in Rome during an extended stay in her native land, this song is Erene Mastrangeli’s presentation to the world not just as an artist but also as an activist, operating on the intention to contribute to world peace and defeat discrimination, hatred, racism, and inequality.
“Love, Shine” is available everywhere music is sold or streamed. Listen on Spotify:

Jesus Muhammed Slices Off A Killer Cut From His Record No Christmas – It’s “DEMON TIME” In 2021! Make no mistake and don’t get it twisted – Jesus Muhammed has never once in his career ever TRIED to be controversial – it’s just who he IS by nature. Exorcising the demons outta his soul one savage cut at a time since first exploding onto the scene back in 2014 with his first releases online – the notoriously wild emcee returns to spit a blazing mix of fire and ice-cold venom for his new single “DEMON TIME” in 2021.
As raw, unfiltered, and stylistically slick as he’s built his reputation on throughout the years, and armed with a powerful dose of ultra-smooth sound that’s on the lighter side of his self-imposed exorcism – the latest Jesus Muhammed single “DEMON TIME” is every bit as gripping as it is straight-up entertaining, and just as gnarly, faded, and hazy as listeners are capable of taking in through one badass experience. Born with a gift of truly not giving a single solitary fuck & being able to say exactly what he wants to say, however the hell he wants to say it, has turned Jesus into a verbal force to be reckoned with, capable of crushing mortal microphones with mere syllables.
“DEMON TIME” takes listeners straight into the heart of darkness without apologies, diving deep into rhythmic precision and beastly bass vibes that rise up to the surface from six-feet underground. Unafraid to get explicit AF and make anyone uncomfortable at every opportunity – Muhammed was destined to be disruptive – and he puts that skill to work, using it to his advantage entirely as he flips the script on his latest cut. Undeniably HUGE from the lefts to the rights – “DEMON TIME” hits hard with swagger & supreme sound built to shake the walls, and delivers a demonic experience that is just as threatening to your speakers as the words Jesus spits are to your soul.
Building an entire legacy of sound that continually proves Jesus Muhammed is the most no-holds-barred artist in the scene today – he goes all-in every time he steps up to the m-i-c and reveals the dark art of the rhyme in full-effect. With his proudly warped perspective and willingness to go where other emcees would never dare, Jesus has risen up relentlessly ahead of the rest in the game by creating bold material that mercilessly takes listeners into a completely different dimension of hybrid Rap that defies all human comprehension.
“DEMON TIME” is another killer slice of what comes out from the inside of Jesus that can no longer be contained – it’s only fair that each and every one of YOU should have to shoulder the true burden of his audible awesomeness & superior sound by sharing the living shit out of his new single around the globe.
As mesmerizing with his precision flow as he is hypnotic & captivating with his words – “DEMON TIME” is the anthem for 2021 whether anyone’s ready for it or not – and a gritty example of Jesus Muhammed’s next-level vibe that can’t help but viciously connect to any set of ears listening. Join him for the official release of “DEMON TIME” this year like your life 100% depends on it…because it just might – & make sure to check out his full-length record No Christmas available on all platforms online for an experience unlike any other.

As frontman and chief songwriter/lyricist for 80s/90s seminal Pittsburgh rock band, Little Wretches, Robert Wagner rode a wave of local notoriety that led the band to the forefront of the underground music scene. The Little Wretches were founded as a folk/punk band by Robert (guitar) and his brother, Chuckie (violin). The “classic” Mach 2 era of Little Wretches included Ed Heidel (bass), Chris Bruckhoff (percussion, wind instruments, backing vocals) and Bob Goetz (guitar), rounded out by Dave Mitchell (drums), Mike Michalski (bass) and Ellen Hildebrand (electric guitar.) This rock edition of the band performed regularly and helped the band build its massive following in Pittsburgh. Michalski, Mitchell and Chuckie Wagner left the band, effectively ending Mach 2.
Mach 3 began with the addition of David Losi (keyboards) and Mike Madden (drums.) When Madden couldn’t tour, drum programmer Gregg Bielski took over. When Ellen switched to bass guitar, this version of The Little Wretches entered the studio. They recorded two albums, with Angelo George playing drums and Jon Paul Leone playing guitar on a third. National press, attorneys, managers, and publicists came calling, as did life’s obligations, and the Little Wretches disbanded in the late 90s.
Robert Wagner continues to perform at coffeehouses and small clubs. A Master’s Degree holder, Wagner also counsels abused, neglected, traumetized and court-adjudicated youth. He is the co-founder of The Calliope Acoustic Open Stage, an event that has lasted 15+ years. He has also recorded and released two new albums in 2020: Undesirables and Anarchists and Burning Lantern Dropped In Straw. The former having spawned an itunes chart-topping single and having received airplay on more than 115 North American AM/FM radio stations.
“My songs are mirrors, and I often begin or end my performances by playing a version of The Velvet Underground’s “I’ll Be Your Mirror” extended to more than ten-minutes in length to include some of the images that most shaped my view of the world as a young man—working men and women enslaved in pursuit of the dollar, the now-vacant void from whence the spirit fled filled with the distraction of mindless entertainment, alcohol and assorted drugs, people so numb that self-destructive violence has lost its impact and the only way they can hope to feel anything is to hurt the people they love.” adds Wagner Follow The Little Wretches here: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thelittlewretches Online: https://littlewretches.com

Out of Breath is the title of Philip’s debut single which was released on the 30th of April 2021. The song is a kind of “burnout-anthem”, which deals with themes like overthinking and the fear of not being able to live up to your own expectations. These thoughts are in many ways a sign of these crazy times we are living in, where Corona virus and a seemingly endless lockdown has made it difficult to remain optimistic. Furthermore it touches upon how it may seem as if you “have it all in your hands”, and have everything figured out (for example on social media), when in reality you are struggling to pick yourself up and keep going.
Philip is the 22-year-old danish singer and songwriter Philip Bæk Hedegaard, who fell in love with music when he got his first guitar at the age of 13. After years of intensive and disciplined practice, and a dream of attending the Royal Danish Academy of Music as a guitarist, he discovered songwriting. The guitar became more of a tool in the hunt for “the good song”, and the dream of becoming a guitarist was replaced by the dream of becoming an artist.
