RECORDING ARTIST KAYLA CLARK TALKS NEW SINGLE "MY WORLD OF LONELINESS" AND MORE!


                                                  LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW


PHOENIX, AZ – Kayla Clark is a fresh Indie singer/songwriter who seamlessly blurs the lines between most contemporary Pop sub-genres through her storytelling and remarkably catchy tracks. The Phoenix-based singer has recently released a new single called “My World of Loneliness” – a timely song that is already connecting with fans all over the world. 

Everyone at some point feels lonely, especially right now as we’re all having to be away from everyone,” Clark said. “I’m taking from the feelings of different experiences of loneliness and putting that all into one song. I usually put a lot of thought into my lyrics, and this one really stood out to me of all the other songs I’ve written. It also features a lot of piano which I think fits the tone of the song very well.”

Clark’s sound holds the unique characteristic of being as minimally edited as possible. She prefers her music to feel raw and unplugged, avoiding over production in favor of the more organic vibes that come from a truly free-spirited process. But that process also includes a dedication to making something as high quality as possible, which means she has dedicated a lot of time to writing and rewriting. Ultimately, to match her sound, Clark prefers to play listening rooms and more intimate venues, allowing her to connect with the audience on a more vulnerable and real level. But with 2020 forcing most artists to stay home and avoid the crowds that come from live performances, Clark has instead focused on her songwriting. As a result, she’s recorded a large collection of songs that perfectly narrate her life as a young woman and musical artist – all of which she plans to release over the course of the next coming months on her new EP, “My World of Loneliness,” set to drop in January.

Prior to the new EP, however, Clark said she plans to release another single called “Silhouette of Me” on Dec. 15. Taking a cue from “My World of Loneliness,” this new single will explore that moment late at night when it feels like all the rest of the world is asleep.

It’s late and all the lights are going off in the city and you feel like you’re the only one awake,” Clark said of the song. “The only thing to keep you company in that moment is your shadow. It’s a song that features more of me on guitar, but at the end, it’s all about the lyrics. I just want people to hear my songs and be able to connect with them and have their own interpretation of the lyrics and apply it to their own lives. I think music is something that can bring us all together through different emotions and experiences of life, which is why I spend the most time on the lyrics. I’d rather write a song that actually means something than create a catchy tune. I will always want to connect in deeper ways.”

Kayla Clark’s music is currently available across all streaming platforms.

GRAMMY NOMINEE SHALISA JAMES TALKS NEW RECORD 'FIVE DECADES' AND HER SUCCESSFUL MUSIC CAREER!

 


Grammy Nominee Shalisa James celebrates ‘Five Decades’ of music with beautiful new album

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW!

ORLANDO, FL – Shalisa James has been a professional vocalist, pianist and music director for
more than 30 years. And as she approaches her 50th birthday, she’s preparing to launch an
album that not only celebrates a life of music but which also shows other female artists that it’s
never too late to live out their dreams.

After singing on five albums with her group Toxic Audio over the years, as well as singing on
other artists’ albums and tackling thousands of studio projects, Shalisa decided she wanted her
own album to celebrate turning 50. “Five Decades” is a 14-track project that showcases a
variety of sounds and styles perfectly suited to display Shalisa’s beautiful vocals.
“I wanted to share that even at this age, I’m in the best voice of my life,” Shalisa said. “I chose
music from all five decades of my life for mostly covers but with a twist. Another interesting
thing about this album is that it was a pandemic project, providing income and collaborative
opportunities for more than 20 musicians during the lockdown months of April through July.
We worked totally remotely with many band members for tracks, never even meeting in
person.”


Shalisa is no stranger to the recording process and entertainment industry. Her company,
Entertainment Central, has produced music acts and shows at major attractions worldwide.
She’s worked with Universal Studios and Warner Brothers to create the Frog Choir Show for the
Wizarding World of Harry Potter. She collaborated with the Tonight Show team and Universal
to create the show for the Race Through New York with Jimmy Fallon attraction. And her video
for the song she wrote with her husband, “Couldn’t Get a Sitter,” has seen more than a million
views on its way to winning a Telly Award for Best Comedic Music Video. She’s also done work
on Broadway with her lead vocal on the Broadway Concert version of “Hair” being nominated
for a Grammy Award with her group Toxic Audio. Shalisa has also been named Female Vocalist
of the Year in 2005, 2006 and 2007 by the Contemporary A Cappella Society of America. Her
voice has been heard on more than 1,000 radio jingles across the U.S.

Now with her new album, Shalisa is ready to show the world a new twist on the music her fans
have come to know and love from her for the past 50 years. A lot of the songs on the album
have layered vocals because she loves harmonies, and many of the covers will feel familiar to
listeners while also presenting a unique vibe that’s more modern. The last track on the album
features all members of her family – her husband sings, her son plays guitar and beat-boxes, as
well as plays guitar. Her younger son – who is a screenwriter and singer – contributes to the
song. And her daughter – who at 26 is studying to become a doctor and fronts a Rock band at
her med school – also added some vocals to the song.

With tracks that explore love and meaningful relationships in all its forms, Shalisa said “Five
Decades” is a fun album for music lovers of all ages and demographics. But more than anything,
she hopes the album will inspire other women out there to continue pursuing their dreams no
matter what the challenges.

“I hear a lot of women talking about how they were so much better when they were younger
and that they’re losing their range or their chops or they don’t have stamina,” Shalisa said.
“That’s a narrative that women have heard a lot and buy into. I wanted to let people know and
show them proof that you can still sing as well as you’ve ever sung in your life when you’re
hitting 50. At this age, we’re getting better and better and working at our craft. My life
experience comes through in the music, which adds layers that I wouldn’t have been able to
bring at age 20. So I hope this album inspires others to see that they can be at their best if they
stick with it and don’t buy into a negative narrative. The world likes to tell people they’re not as
good as they were, and I, with this album, I wanted to say, ‘No! I’m actually singing better than
I’ve ever sung.’”

ROCKERS "LIKE MACHINES" TALKS NEW SINGLE 'TAKE IT AWAY' AND MORE CURRENT PROJECTS!

 


The first time I heard "LIKE MACHINES" they were on tour with rock legends "Collective Soul". It was quite a surprise. I went to the show to see "Collective Soul" because, well because I've been a fan of that band for many years. When I heard "Like Machines" plug in, I instantaneously became a fan of theirs too. 

Too be honest, I liked these guys better.  I've had these guys on the show a few times now.  I'm honored to have them back on today. Andrew and Tanner both talked about their new single "Take It Away" (make sure you check out the video) and their new "Take It Away" remix EP.

We also talked about how the band has worked around the COVID 19 virus, and what 2021 is looking like for them.

PODCAST ALERT - RISING ROCK BAND "LIKE MACHINES" RETURNS TO THE SHOW TO TALK ABOUT THEIR NEW SINGLE 'TAKE IT AWAY' AND MORE!

 


HIP HOP RECORDING ARTIST 'YUNG FAUCET' TALKS NEW MIX TAPE "JUGG & DRIP" AND MORE!

 Yung Faucet shows off high octane drippy style on new mixtape ‘Jugg & Drip’


LISTEN TO THE PODCAST BELOW!

HARRISBURG, PA – Everything about Pennsylvania artist Yung Faucet is drippy – from the way he puts his outfits together to the way he flows on beats with fly melodies and clever wordplay. That signature style is put on full display with his new mixtape “Jugg & Drip” which is currently available across all streaming platforms. It’s the second mixtape from this fast-rising young talent and already the buzz around this project is gaining him a lot of attention along the East Coast.

“It’s a mixtape about hustling and getting fly,” Yung Faucet said. ‘It’s about my lifestyle and what I live for. It’s about making ends meet with fly talk. It’s real drippy with melodic flows and nice bars, and the quality is crazy. The versatility on this project is ridiculous and I think it explains me to a T and really shows the world who Faucet is.”

More than anything else, Yung Faucet is best known for his energy. When it comes to his music, his delivery is so hype that people can’t help but jump up on their feet and respond to his

passion. But that’s a characteristic that’s true of every walk of his life. Yung Faucet doesn’t know how to live a quiet life, and his infectious energy is such that almost anyone who meets him is inspired and motivated. He puts a smile on people’s faces and leaves them wanting to chase their own dreams with the same kind of passion that he displays.

“I’ve got genuine energy,” he said. “It’s no gimmick. When you talk to me and I’m hype, that’s me the whole way through. And you can catch that on every track. You’re gonna listen to me and say, ‘I love this guy! He’s so cool!’”


Yung Faucet first got his start in music while in high school. His personality was such that he was voted Mr. Popularity by his senior class and was given the “Most Likely To Succeed” award. The summer after graduation, he began to really dive into music, developing his sound and style to create something truly original. That hard work paid off as the first mixtape he released gained major attention and helped him put his name on the map. Now following that up with a second mixtape, Yung Faucet said he hopes to become a household name over the course of the next year.

“I want my music to be known for being me,” he said. “This is really me. I’m telling you about all the good times and the bad times in energetic ways that will plug into people’s heads. I want people to remember me for my versatility. I’ve got nine different voices I can use, but it still sound like me. And mostly, I want to be known for my energy. That’s the best word to describe me. I am Mr. Energy. I’ve been fly my whole life and I’d like to be known for that before anything else.”
