Quietchild – Quicksand

Quietchild won’t be quiet with powerful message behind new hit single ‘Quicksand’ 

MADISON, WIS – The slow, sinking feeling of despair from a broken relationship is beautifully depicted in Quietchild’s new hit single, “Quicksand.”  

With sounds that crossover and explore the worlds of Pop and Trap, the music duo from Wisconsin – Cuyler Monahan and Galen Austin – have just released what they proclaim is their “best song yet” on Spotify. It was written as a personal message to a friend, but was instantly realized as a form of art everyone could relate to and enjoy. 

“The message was that I understand because I’ve been through the same thing,” Cuyler said. “There’s so much euphoria in a new relationship but sometimes it can end in catastrophe. Those ups and downs – sweeping changes – are life, and we get through them. This song is so much like a painting – you see it once and like it, but the more you stare at it, the more you see and the more you gain from it. We worked very hard on this song to capture this emotion of quicksand.” 

Galen’s brilliant Trap beat sets the rhythm to Cuyler’s deep and intimate voice, and then the beautiful contrast that joins the melody is the sweet and angelic voice of Drew “Dru” Dravis. The energy is in the chorus, and the emotion is found in the verse.  

“Dru’s voice needs to be out there in the music world and we loved her sound for ‘Quicksand,’” Cuyler said. “There aren’t a lot of artists pushing the limits right now between Pop and Trap, so there’s opportunity in that space. Galen loves making Trap beats and I love EDM so our songs compromise those elements. The best part of making music is surprising the listener – giving them something they didn’t expect to love, or find out it’s something they learn later in life how much it meant to them.” 

Galen and Cuyler have come a long way since they started making music together five years ago as high schoolers. But they knew they had something special when they won the 2018 Madison Area Music Award for Youth Album of the Year for their debut album “Euphoria.” Both with musical backgrounds, the friends actually hold two very different perspectives – Galen as an incredible drummer and audio engineer, and Cuyler as a long-time pianist, writer and vocalist. 

“That’s what makes music good – differences,” Cuyler said. “We can argue on a single snare sound or how to pronounce a word, but at the end of the day that’s what makes our music so unique and good. We understand the music market is pretty crowded, but there’s space for something new and exciting. I think as music evolves over time, things have changed and we’re a part of that change.” 

Quietchild will continue to be everything but quiet with another hit single on the way called “Paris Riviera.” Listen for yourself and find Quietchild on the following links. 











Mailynn Severson – Movie Love

Blog, Industry Spotlight, ME Blog, Music, Videos

New teenage singer Mailynn Severson breaks the mold for Pop genre with intriguing new sound and style 

SAN JOSE, CA – The music from 16-year-old Mailynn Severson might on the surface sound like the innocent teenage girl trying to become the next big Pop star, but upon closer inspection her music doesn’t really fit in with that “cookie-cutter” Pop sound of today’s music industry. With lyrics that have deeper, almost melancholy allusions and a sound that fits more alongside the angst-driven female singers of the 1990s, Severson’s brand of Pop is something a little different. It’s a breath of fresh air in a crowded world of entertainment that’s often displayed with bubblegum packaging for young teenage singers. 

That’s not to say that her style of music isn’t connected to today’s teenage audience. In actuality, her raw emotion and inside look at the thoughts and feelings of a young teenage girl in today’s American society is more closely akin to the real world than a lot of other music out there today. And as such she’s relating with a rapidly expanding wave of new fans all over the U.S. with her latest string of single releases.  

En route to the release of her five-song EP “Circus Mirror,” Severson is dropping each of the singles from the project one month at a time. She started with the title track “Circus Mirror” in early June, and has received praise from listeners all over the world as other teenagers have immediately connected with the song’s messages of insecurity and self-doubt and body issues. She’s followed that up with her latest single, “Movie Love,” which is perhaps her most upbeat song from the forthcoming EP. 

“I was on the phone with my boyfriend while I was writing it and I had this idea to create something that’s like that perfect love you see in the movies,” she said. “I tend to write more deep and sad songs, so this was kind of a step out of my comfort zone. It’s something I’ve been trying to replicate with some of the newer songs I’ve been writing – to lift the mood in some ways. But for the most part ‘Circus Mirror’ is the perfect outlet for girls my age and really gives some insight into teenage girls today, I think.”  

Though Severson admits that her style of music does technically fit into the Pop genre, she’s quick to assert the fact that it’s a different, newer sound that’s more on the acoustic side of things than anything else. As such, it’s difficult to precisely label her style – which suits her fine, as she hopes to be an artist who can be influential across multiple genres. She’s inspired by artists such as Alicia Keys or Tori Amos, and said she aspires to write music that – like the songs of those legends – has a clear message that’s real and genuine.

Spyndycyt – I Don’t Want To Do This Anymore

Music, Promo, Videos

Spyndycyt marries eclectic vibe with Synth and Future Pop styles on intriguing new track ‘I Don’t Want To Do This Anymore’ 

DENVER, CO – If the B-52s and Depeche Mode met Future Pop and Synth Wave sounds, you’d have the signature sound and style of Denver-based artist Spyndycyt (pronounced Spin-Da-kit). His latest single “I Don’t Want To Do This Anymore” is an upbeat, dance-ready track that’s simultaneously trippy and catchy. It’s intriguing in the best of ways and makes you want to move with its frenetic energy and upbeat vibe. And from the moment you hear the first verse come out of his mouth you’ll immediately be taken back to lead singers like Fred Schneider or Dave Gahan. 

The video that accompanies the single is equally intriguing. Nothing more than a point of view camera angle stumbling down a stairwell, the dizzying effect of the video is a perfect accompanying visual for this delightfully meandering track. Anyone who is a fan of Synth Pop, Dance Pop, or Alternative Pop will love this song. 

“Ultimately it’s a song about the drudgery of life and escaping that mundane reality that we all try to avoid,” Spyndycyt said. “You go to school, you get a job, you get a life, and then you’re stuck. That’s kind of what music is about for me – escaping the routine all of us find ourselves in. Ultimately I’d like to be known as someone who is creative and a little bit different.” 

That sentence could very well be the driving force behind a lot of the decisions this artist makes. His stage name, in fact, was created out of an intentional mindset to stand out from the crowd. It’s certainly not something you’d find with a lot of competition when doing an online search of the name, and more than that it’s a name that makes you think a little deeper and wonder about what kind of art comes from a guy with that name. 

The answer is – good art. The best kind of art – creative and original and experimental, but pleasing to the ear and catchy in ways that makes you want to hit repeat over and over again. In fact, Spyndycyt said the only thing he’s ever really wanted to do with his music is create something that people can tap their feet to or feel an emotional connection with.  

“When you turn on the radio today a lot of the stuff sounds the same,” he said. “That gets old to me. When I first started making music it would devastate me that I didn’t sound like anyone else. I’d beat myself up and think it was horrible. But now I enjoy that and appreciate that aspect of it. There are a thousand artists out there actively trying to sound like someone else. Now I embrace the challenge of trying to reproduce what I hear in my head. When words pop into my head, they’re often already attached to a melody or cadence, and it can be fun to play around with that starting point. And when people ask me to describe it, I have trouble coming up with a genre. It’s eclectic. It’s whatever I hear in the privacy of my mind – whether it’s something to keep or something so bad it embarrasses me. And it’s a lot like what other people think about – dreams, hopes, crippling fears, reservations about life, and a generalized angst.” 

Spyndycyt said he has other songs he’s working on that will likely be released later this year, and that he could combine all of them into an EP before the year is over. Until then, “I Don’t Want To Do This Anymore” is available across all streaming platforms.

Belee Kaur – I Believe

Former Tennis Pro Belee Kaur turns to Dance Pop with Massive Hit Single ‘I Believe’ 

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA – It’s not unusual for professional athletes to use music as motivation, though it’s not every day that you hear about a former tennis pro turning to Dance Pop as an artistic outlet. That’s the case for Canadian-Indian singer/songwriter Belee Kaur, however. While traveling the world as a professional tennis player, music was always her best friend. She recalls crucial moments in her tennis matches when she would sing her favorite songs in her mind to calm herself down. Eventually she realized that music was her true passion, and after a lifetime of training and touring, she hung up her tennis racket in favor of the microphone and partnered with RATHMUZIK and BENTLEY RECORDS, NEW YORK to begin her musical journey. It has proven to be a great move, because with only two releases to date she has already topped 2 million views on YouTube, and her star is only climbing. 

Her latest single is the hit summer track “I Believe.” Stuck right in the middle of the Dance Pop lane, this upbeat jam is sure to be played in the clubs for many years to come. If you listen to this song and don’t move your body then you must be dead. It’s an upbeat, pumping groove that is perfect for a night out with friends. People all over the world will be getting sweaty as they jump and bounce to the music that Belee Kaur has created.  

“I wrote this song as a response to the self-motivation I felt when going through a lot of difficulties,” she said. “If you really want something, you don’t need someone to back you or encourage you. Just tell yourself that if you want it, you can do it. I accepted my feelings and said this is what I wanted to do. Making a song about that emotion just felt so good, and when we gave it that little bit of an EDM touch it just came out perfect.” 

“I Believe” is actually the second hit from this fast-rising young artist. Her previous track “Saturday Night” – a cover of the hit from Whigfield – has already surpassed 300k+ views on YouTube. The follow-up single is well on its way to catching that total, having already amassed nearly 1.5 million views in just a couple of weeks in its release. That doesn’t even include the rising number of plays across all the other streaming platforms upon which the single has been placed. And Belee said she has even more music planned to drop later this year, including a feature on an upcoming track with world famous Sean Paul, and many more renowned collaborations. 

“Always trust God and his plans for you,” Belee said. “Your outlook should be no looking back. I have always wanted to make music that is lively and makes people happy and want to dance. There are too many reasons to be sad nowadays, but music can bring happiness and inspiration to your life. Even if I only inspire one other person, I think I did my job. So, I hope people will use my music to convince themselves not to give up. If we can support each other, we can achieve all that we want to.”

Lavelle Williams – Amazing

Blog, Industry Spotlight, ME Blog, Music, Promo, Videos

Upbeat Pop jam from Lavelle Williams offers fans an ‘Amazing’ experience 

SACRAMENTO, CA – A fun new Dance Pop groove that’s sure to make you bop and sway to the beat has arrived from West Coast artist Lavelle Williams. “Amazing” is a simple but fun jam that’s all about the feelings that come when you’ve found that special someone. It’s upbeat, with hints of R&B influences throughout. The simple acoustic guitar intro leads to some driving drums that let loose for the Pop-heavy vocals from Lavelle. It’s a song with a mid-tempo bounce that makes you want to bop your head, and it’s paired with a nice sway that builds over the course of the song. It’s the perfect song to enjoy at the clubs, or to just play in the background with chilling with friends at a party. 

Williams said “Amazing” is a great example of his unique sound and style in that it displays his mastery of many genres. He considers his sound to be a mixture of everything, and cites a wide range of influences that include Drake, Justin Bieber, John Legend, and Big Sean. He also has studied some of the legends in rap, and considers Tupac one of the best lyricists of all time. 

“I hope my music is known for bringing new things to the table,” he said. “I want to bring a new sound that incorporates a variety of different genres. And mostly I want to make something that makes people happy and makes them want to dance.” 

Music is something that’s been a mainstay in Williams’ life from the time he was born. His grandfather is the legendary Lenny Williams from Tower of Power, and for as long as he can remember he’s been singing and rapping alongside other members of his family. More than that, however, he said music has been a great escape for him through the years and has helped him cope with some of the harder experiences of his life.  

“It helps me cope with and get my feelings out there,” he said. “I’m very grateful for the family and friends who have supported me and helped me along the way, and I’m so glad that I’ve had music in my life to push me along.” 

Williams said “Amazing” is the first track off a forthcoming EP that he’s working toward completing later this year.

Talia Justina – You Got Me

Blog, Industry Spotlight, ME Blog, Music, Promo, Videos

Talia Justina displays impressive talent on hot new single ‘You Got Me’ 

LOS ANGELES, CA – There are a lot of genres in the world of music, and a lot of talented people making music in those genres. Talia Justina is trying to create something new. 

After a decade of exploring new sounds and finding her unique voice, she’s landed on a signature style that certainly makes a case for originality. That talented display of artistry is put on full display with her impressive new single “You Got Me.” 

Currently available across all streaming platforms, “You Got Me” is a song that takes its influence from a variety of genres – Pop, Rock, R&B and more – yet finds itself in a place that’s hard to pinpoint with a specific title. The wavy intro makes way for Talia’s soaring vocals, and when the beat drops listeners are immediately hooked. You can’t help but bounce with the groove and Talia takes you on a ride. The slow jam summer hit feels like an elevated take on Pop legends like Ariana Grande, making it a smash that’s just waiting for the world to catch on. 

“It’s a song that’s about a relationship that’s sustainable and almost relentless in the way that it lasts,” Talia said. “I feel like there’s a lot of bad energy in music today, and I really wanted to express something about how there can be that one person that you just know when you’re with them it can last. There’s not a lot of representation like that in music right now, and I wanted to showcase something different.” 

Talia has been singing her whole life and got a first-hand education in music as she watched her mother – a professional musician – sing at events and on cruise ships for much of her childhood. She made it her goal to pursue music, as well, and her biggest opportunity came at a young age when she was discovered by her manager Jason Charles at only age 10. Charles and his business partner, EIF, have helped develop Talia into one of the fastest-rising young talents in the world. EIF has also worked as the primary producer for her music, and helped craft the masterpiece that is “You Got Me.” Talia considers them to be her family, and together the three of them have created something special with her signature style. 

“I want people to instantly know it’s me they’re listening to,” Talia said. “My voice is distinct. You can’t confuse me with anyone else you’re listening to today. I would only hope and dream to be known as a legacy. More than anything I hope I’m an artist who is known for embracing her individuality. I also want to be known as a voice for the youth – inspiring them to create whatever they set their minds to. That’s all I want to do for the rest of my life – create what I love and encourage others to create what they love, as well.” 

Talia said she and her team are working on putting together an EP this year, with more singles set to release within the next few months. To listen to Talia Justina’s music, or to follow her on social media, please visit the following links: 



AED Projek – Let’s Begin

Blog, Industry Spotlight, ME Blog, Music, Promo, Videos

Digital Music Creator Alonso Daniels offers dance track of the summer with hot new single ‘Let’s Begin’ 

ALEXANDRIA, VA – There’s one thing for certain that listeners of Alonso Daniels’ music can be sure of: there’s going to be a lot of energy. His latest single “Let’s Begin” is the perfect example. From the opening of the brash trumpet jazz intro to the very last beat drop, this dance-heavy upbeat track is the epitome of energy. It’s fun and upbeat and serves as the perfect introduction to what Daniels calls the “AED Projek” – a three-album extravaganza of upbeat songs that will take listeners on a musical journey over the next three years. 

“It’s dance music that’s mainly instrumental, though sometimes there are lyrics,” Daniels said. “‘Let’s Begin’ is just the first single. My plan is to release three singles this year and then the first album, with two more albums over the next two years. And everything kind of gets fully explained through the videos that will come. Eventually I’ll have other musicians come along and play, as well. You can discover things along the way and take a journey.” 

Daniels likened the project to something similar to what The Gorillaz would create in terms of elaborating on their music through other artistic mediums, like videos. “Let’s Begin” will establish the first step of that journey when the full video is released later this year. Even without the video, however, fans can enjoy the upbeat vibe that Daniels has created. The brash trumpet intro leads into a funky old-school hip-hop groove that includes record scratching and skipping lyrics.  

“It’s definitely something you can dance to,” Daniels said. “It’s a song that says, ‘We’ve gone through a lot of rough times over the past year, so let’s just go and have fun right now.’ That’s really all it is – just dancing and having fun. Nothing serious. What comes later will come later.” 

Daniels is a relative newcomer to the music recording industry, though he did spend some years as a manager for a band based out of France. He first came to music through his mother, who was a concert pianist. He said he remembers listening to her practice piano all day throughout his teenage years, and she even at one point tried to teach him how to play, though he never took to it. But she did instill within him a passion for good music, and eventually he started studying other artists who he considered to be some of the greats – such as The Beatles, Carlos Santana, Beck, Pink Floyd, and Maroon Five. Any band who created good energy caught his attention, and it’s that kind of vibe he tries to create in his own music.  

“It’s nice when you dance to something and just let out a lot of energy,” he said. “That’s what I like to do and what I like to create. I don’t even really consider myself a musician as much as a digital music creator. And at the end of the day I hope people hear my music and say that it was inspiring, fun and energetic. Eventually I hope its music that will inspire people to think different and do better for themselves and for others. But for right now, let’s just have fun and dance.” 

Daniels said his next single will be “Kiss, Kiss, Kiss,” which should drop later this summer. To listen to his music, or to follow him on social media, please visit the following links:

Jobbaloon – Days

Blog, Industry Spotlight, ME Blog, Music, Promo, Videos

Detroit duo Jobbaloon welcomes fans into otherworldly experience with debut album ‘The Invitation’ 

DETROIT, MI – It’s difficult to describe the music of Jobbaloon. It’s psychedelic, but catchy. It’s spiritual, but poppy. It’s thoughtful and serious but contains elements of dark humor, satire and straight-up silliness (as the duo humorously puts it in their bio, “Their commitment to never sell out is unwavering…except for the purpose of professional success, in which case there is no limit to the level that they would compromise their principles.”) It doesn’t fit into just one specific genre, yet it remains universally appealing enough to be enjoyed by any type of music fan. It could almost be considered singer-songwriter (with acoustic guitar, piano, and lilting, emotional vocal melodies) but has electronic elements that you might hear in a modern-day pop beat. It seems no musical instrument is off-limits – from strings and horns, to synth sounds and trap high hats, reminiscent of the experimental aspects of the baroque pop of the 1960s.  

That said, Jobbaloon’s premier album, “The Invitation” is just plain good music, with a plethora of very positive reviews to back up that claim. It’s an album meant to be listened to from beginning to end, in one sitting, as if being guided on a mystical, musical journey. Similar to Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” or The Beatles’ “Sergeant Pepper,” it’s a cohesive piece of art. It begins and ends with spoken-word by a Jamaican Zen Master, book-ending six single-worthy tracks, including the upbeat and undeniably catchy “Days,” whose music video is a reimagining of the famous “Singin’ in the Rain” scene 

Hailing from Detroit, Jobbaloon is doing something very unusual as it pertains to their current local music scene. With Jack White-influenced garage-rock being a staple sound in the city, a Jobbaloon show is less like seeing a band, and more like a psychedelic experience, complete with abstract video projection, an atmospheric light show, smoke, confetti, and more – all sitting atop electronic music and live singing. Their new live show format, known as Jobbaloon 2.0, is sure to give audiences a truly unique experience, when it debuts later this year. 

If that all sounds too serious, please be directed to their satirical web series, “Pastor Roy” – a fictional Westboro Baptist Pastor (in the vein of Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat) who condemns everything from pop icons and democrats in his online sermons, to everyday people he interviews in his man-on-the-street segments. Its dark, offensive humor will have you simultaneously laughing out loud and cringing, much like the antics of Tim and Eric, Eric Andre, or the work of the late Andy Kaufman. The resulting online controversy, and that confusion that the majority of audiences experience when they can’t tell if it’s real or satire, is enjoyed by its creators.

Alex Costova – On My Way

Industry Spotlight, ME Blog, Music, Promo, Videos

Atmospheric Synth-Pop fills fans with energy on new anthemic song of the summer ‘On My Way’ 

BOSTON, MA – The song of the summer is already here. “On My Way” is the latest hit single from internationally recognized artist Alex Costova, and its upbeat energy and powerful vibes are already creating a strong buzz among industry insiders with whispers that it will be the standout track for the summer. Featuring two up-and-coming female artists Jamara and J!NX! the single is a synth-pop track that melds elements of Soul and EDM in ways that are equal parts subtle and substantial. Alex Costova has truly created a marvel of entertainment with this ambient electronic groove of sound, and the soaring vocals of Jamara and J!NX! take the song to a whole new level. The masterful polishing strokes from engineer Shane Violette puts the perfect touch on this incredible collaboration of highly talented artists at the top of their game. 

Based out of Boston, Massachusetts, Alex Costova is a rising alternative pop recording artist who has steadily been making a name for himself over the past few years as one of the go-to hit-makers in the industry. His atmospheric sound creates a relaxing environment that is layered with catchy, soul-driven lyrics over progressive electronic melodies. Those in the industry who know about him are clamoring to work with him, and producers like Shane Violette are sending the cream of the crop of their young artists to collaborate with him. As Alex Costova’s music has progressed and matured, he has partnered with talented engineers and other artists, who he said have shaped his music and allowed him to reach his full potential as an artist. 

“People like Shane Violette have taught me so much,” Costova said. “My music career has really started to take off over the past year, and I’ve come a long way with collaborating with a lot of great artists. To work with other creative minds like this makes me ecstatic. It helps me to grow as an artist. Watching how Jamara and J!NX! introduce different ways to sing on a song or create something new that I never would have thought of just makes everything better. I look at my sound as being my own and not really comparing to anyone else out there, but it is influenced by other great artists – such as Adam Young of Owl City, or Tom Delonge of Angels & Airwaves, or EDM Recording Artist Gryffin, and especially those I collaborate with. Ultimately, I hope I’m making music that hits the hearts of anyone who listens to it in ways that grab them and take them in and make a difference in their lives. That’s the biggest reason I make music.” 

Costova said he knows “On My Way” can be one of those songs that really makes a difference in a person’s life. Not only is it upbeat and filled with the kind of energy one might associate with the summer, but it’s also anthemic and inspirational in its drive to motivate people to embrace their gifts, talents and abilities to achieve their dreams.  

“It’s so powerful because of what’s going on in the world right now,” he said. “A lot of people feel set back because of COVID and wars in the world and different issues that we’re all facing. With this song we’re sending the message to keep on fighting for what you want in your lives. We’re on our way. No matter what, don’t give up on yourself. Don’t give up on your dreams. Keep moving forward. It’s the beginning of a journey, and we’re all walking and singing toward the great things that come through that journey.” 

Costova said he’s hard at work on even more music that he plans to release later this year, including the next single “Mine,” which he said should drop toward the end of the summer.

Brooke Fair – Bite My Tongue

Blog, Industry Spotlight, ME Blog, Music, Promo, Videos

Up-and-coming singer/songwriter Brooke Fair motivates fans with two new singles 

MEMPHIS, TN – At age 16, it feels weird to Brooke Fair to think of her passion for creating music as a career. She does music because she loves it. It’s her coping mechanism. It’s in her bones. And when she creates new songs, she’s sharing a huge part of her soul with everyone who hears it. But with such natural talent and an undeniable signature sound, it has become evident that she’s the kind of artist who has what it takes to make music a lifelong endeavor. Her first EP that she released at age 14 made a major splash in the industry, and the three other singles she’s released since that time have continued to expand her fanbase on a global level. Now she’s ready to release two more hit singles in the month of May with “Bite My Tongue” and “I’m Not Sorry.” 

The first single drops May 14. “Bite My Tongue” explores a friend-based relationship that is on the rocks and creates moments of tension more often than not. It’s a song that will be immediately identifiable for other teenagers, but which also has a deep message that resonates with music lovers of all ages. Showcasing her amazing vocals set against an indie-pop vibe, the song evokes thoughts of Taylor Swift or English singer Dodie.  

“It’s a song about feeling like there’s a friendship that has a lot of issues that you’ve ng to work out – or any relationship, really – and feeling like you can’t say anything because it wouldn’t be productive or you’d lost too much if you spoke up,” Fair said. “But in the back of your mind you know it has to end because of how unhealthy it has gotten. I feel like sonically it’s presented in a way that makes it feel less sad than it sounds, and the fact that it’s upbeat I think helps people relate to it more and reflect on those things. I’ve been in situations when I’ve had to recognize things about myself, and if I’m listening to something upbeat and the lyrics are really hitting home, then I’m more likely to make that change and consider what it means to have a different perspective. When you phrase your experiences in the right way it can draw people in.” 

Fair will follow that single with “I’m Not Sorry” on May 28, two days before her 17th birthday. Like “Bite My Tongue,” the second single is a great showcase of her amazing vocals and Indie-Pop style. It’s also a song that perfectly displays her natural talent as a songwriter, with lyrics that further explore the depths of relationships while also serving as a motivational mantra for anyone who listens to it. 

“It’s almost like a sequel to ‘Bite My Tongue’ because it’s on the back end of a relationship that you’ve decided to end,” Fair said. “You’ve decided to cut that person off and leave the relationship, and you’re saying ‘I’m not sorry’ for setting boundaries or leaving and doing what’s best for you. It’s empowering in that you’re unapologetically standing up for yourself.” 

Fair worked closely with Grammy-nominated songwriter Jamie Floyd on “I’m Not Sorry,” and co-wrote “Bite My Tonge” with Rebekah White Williams, continuing her string of collaborations with influential veterans of the industry. She has previously worked with renowned producer Elliot Ives, and recorded a couple of songs with Sarah Simmons, an artist who was featured on NBC’s The Voice. 

Fair said in addition to these two singles she’s hard at work on an album, which she hopes to release later this year. It’s a project that will feature a cool mix of Memphis style and pop for a twist that she said is like nothing anyone has ever seen before.
