Reed Waddle’s Anthem “Save Me” Helps Us Find Hope In Overwhelming Times

Music, Videos

As the year comes to a close, Reed Waddle has been spending a long time reflecting. He has been looking back and the songs he has written over the years, remembering the people he has met and places he has been along the way.

Written in Summer of 2020 in the midst of the pandemic, Reed Waddle’s single “Save Me”, a tells of many thoughts, emotions, and demons felt in the wake of the pandemic. Reed says, “As this year was coming to a close, I found that this song ‘Save Me’ resonated with me deeply. It helps me get through what I was feeling during the pandemic.”

Reed Developed as a musician through the guidance of his dad, developing an over 20 year career recording music and playing gigs at bars. Since 2014, he has been writing songs for other artists and projects in Nashville. He has been refining his writing day by day, supporting artists such as

Hall and Oats, John Fogerty, Graham Nash, Jason Isbell, Shawn Colvin, and countless others.

Reed says, “I’ve always been surrounded by music. My dad is a lifelong colleague; I’ve been happy to have his support along the way.”

While writing songs, Reed finds inspiration anywhere. “I kind of think of music as folklore and legend. The musical road brings me from place to place. You put something out, and immediately the question is what’s next? There’s a beauty in everyday things. Your job as a writer is to keep your eyes open and your ears open”

Over the years, Reed has won many songwriting competitions and is the Telluride Troubadour Grand Prize winner. He still uses the guitar won from that competition from Colorado every day.

Reed wrote “Save Me” thinking though the pandemic over Zoom calls with collaborators. On a writing session on a whim, Reed wrote the single with Jordan Frye, looking to build an idea that was soulful and necessary during the pandemic. That’s the magic of cowriting, you take it where it’s supposed to take you,” Reed says.

The single has gotten plenty of attention, receiving the acclaim of synch supervisors and the attention of the team supporting Dolly Parton.

“I want to use this to take my next big step,” Reed says looking forward. “A year went by, and I sat on it, and I thought it was good to bring this one out for the public. The big goal is to continue to create. Grow my fanbase, keep playing shows, and continue to create.”

He hopes that the single will inspire others. Reed says, “The title seems kind of sad, but it aims to give some hope to people going through hard times. Life is a big, beautiful thing, sometimes it can be overwhelming, but there is hope somewhere. If someone is feeling kind of down, I hope ‘Save Me’ can help them feel okay.”

“Save Me” is available on all streaming platforms. For more about Reed Waddle and his music, visit his website:

GBO brings “Gone Too Soon,” his latest musical perspective, from Chicago to the world

Music, Videos

Music has always been part of life for Chicago rapper GBO (that’s two syllables, G-Boh). Ever Since he was a kid, he loved to write music and create songs. He wrote and created his first song at the age of 15. He hasn’t created any music in a while.

Until this year, when he released three songs. The latest is “Gone Too Soon,” a tribute to friends and loved ones no longer with him.

“Through the years, a lot of people close to me have passed away,” he said. “Some of my best friends are gone. Some of my family members. I just wanted to make a song to remember them and say it’s not the end, to stay positive, and to put out a good message.”

The message comes with a guitar meditation behind Philadelphia singer Rachel Philipp’s chorus and a soft drumbeat punctuating GBO’s rap:

Every minute with a loved one’s like a blessing to me

Your friendship’s like a circle that never ends

You’re the brother I never had, my best friend

I know your spirit lives on through my pen

Now as I pray, I say a-men.

“I just know I like to make music,” he said, “and recently I got back into it because I really enjoy it.”

Music “is my passion now,” but back in the early years it was more of an escape. He doesn’t talk much about that time, believing excessive detail would be a distraction from his music, but he did say he had a difficult childhood in a bad neighborhood on the south side of Chicago.

“Music would get me through everything,” he said.

Now, if things work out well, he wants to make his living from music. When he wrote those earlier songs, the music business was different, much more difficult to navigate. Today, with online music platforms and social media to help build a fanbase, music and a music career are much more “accessible.”

More accessibility makes collaboration easier. “Gone Too Soon” features Rachel on the chorus (“She did a phenomenal job.”), and his first two, “Rebound” and “Pushing Me” feature St. Laurent Don on hard-edged trap tracks.

“I’m just gonna start making my music, making my songs, see how it comes out and go from there.”

In his youth he listened to a lot of rock, from Elvis to Metallica, pop, “pretty much throw it in, I listened to it.” He also listened to hip hop — Snoop Dog and Dr. Dre, “just everything you can think of” — and his music now is rap, whereas his teen music was more singing.

“Hip hop and trap music,” he said. “I try to keep it more modern because the music’s always evolving. I try to see what’s hot right now and listen to some songs and work from there.

He writes lyrics to beats he likes.

I look for something I can vibe with. If I’m listening to it and I feel like good about it, I start writing and take it from there. Like in ‘Gone Too Soon,’ I was listening to it, and I just started thinking like, the beat gave me a sad feeling, so I’m gonna write a sad song.”

In the process, he adjusted both the beat the and lyrics and ended up making a soulful, meditative “Gone Too Soon” that lifts the spirit rather than saddens it, and while the melodic chorus pleases the ear, GBO’s rap engages the pulse.

“I write music from many different perspectives,” he said. “At the end of the day, I just want people to enjoy it, to feel something from it, whether it’s in having fun or whether it’s like ‘Gone Too Soon,’ being sad. That’s the most you can ask for, that somebody connects with your music? They get it. They understand.”

Making a good career out of music would be nice, he said, but he is learning the business. He plans to do live performances, but that is a different process than writing, rapping and releasing tracks, and he is still feeling his way into that. He is exploring hiring a manager and expanding his presence on music and video platforms.

Meantime, he is writing, people are listening, and he is building a fanbase.

“I try not to have any expectations, because if I don’t have any expectations, and I see people listening to it, and people like it, and people connect to me, I get excited, right? Because my expectation was nothing. My expectation right now is, let’s see where it goes, see what I can do with it.”

Submuzik Boss Returns To The Music Scene With New Single “I Need That”

Industry Spotlight, Music, Videos
Submuzik Boss is impossible to ignore. Born in Milwaukee, SMB is revered for his emotional honesty, sweet melodic songs about pain, and young love that he crafts. The rapper speaks his mind through haunting tales packed with pure bars, street tales, and passionate deliveries. Having sky high ambitions and a work ethic to match, he consistently progresses with clarity; without compromising his well-honed sound.

The rapper’s interaction with music started from early on. His father and godfather (who are both musicians), SMB always registered his presence in the studios where they recorded and he subtly learned from those sessions. Drawing from influences like T-Pain, T.I. and Twista, SMB’s sound is tailored to motivate people not to give up on their dreams. Pulling from his wealth of experience as he recounts painful tales of his mistakes.


SMB announced himself to the world in 2018 with the technically impressive album “Dope Vibes”. The record focuses on themes of love, hustle tales, and healthy self reflection on piano-driven production. SMB’s ear for melodic sound gave the project an ear worthy texture, as his voice shape-shifted between gruff declarations of street life and sweetened confessions of love and lust. 

SMB’s narrative has been a slow and steady progression of coming from nothing, to someone whose name you’ll never forget. The gospel of SMB is vibrating on a higher level. While the rest of his story remains unwritten, we’re all a work in progress. This is only the beginning. (Edited by Rosetta & Savana)

Sada Baby) centers around the concept of getting up and going for it. “What are you doing if you ain’t getting money. Go get a bag” tells Flex Kartel through song.

There is always something different and beautiful about every song.” This single in particular is high energy, blending rap with melodic R&B melodies to create a sound designed to flow through your body and make you want to move.

After all, she made me,” teases Flex Kartel about making his mother proud through his art, which is also a beacon of hope. “I want people to know that anything that you dream of or think of is possible.

Gr8ful is bringing new light to our emotions with his project PERSPECTIVES

Industry Spotlight, Music, Promo, Videos

CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA – Since he was a young man, Gr8ful has always been in love with music and the influence that it had on people. At only 13 he was writing his own music and freestyling for other kids in the park. Several years later he is releasing his latest project, a set of singles under the title PERSPECTIVES.

PERSPECTIVES comes to the table with two main focuses to it. Not only does the project look at the different ways to approach the topic of finding your place in the world, it also hints towards the artist’s own name. “You have to look at things from different angles to practice gratuity sometimes,” Gr8ful explained. “I think the project, and the rest of my music is a representation of that.”

As a project, PERSPECTIVES includes two songs, “Pop Off” and “Carry On”. Each song uses its own unique methods to get you to the main idea of the project, that everyone has a place and role in this life. You simply are not alone.

Starting with “Pop Off”, this track takes on the more energetic half of the project. A collaboration between Gr8ful and a few talented artists of various backgrounds, the track blends together seamlessly. “It was so rare to get such a quickly cohesive feel from such a diverse group,” he said. “It’s something I want everyone to be able to feel. In this track and their own lives.”

“Carry On”, unlike its partner track, is inspired by a groovy 80’s sound. “This song is about being able to carry on no matter what is thrown at you.” Having a gorgeously communal feel to it, this song is a representation of the knowledge that you will always have someone in your corner.

“I chose the title PERSPECTIVES because each song takes a very different approach,” Gr8ful explained. While “Pop Off” has a very forward and high tempo feel, “Carry On” takes on a smoother, more Funky sound. Despite coming from different sides, the two songs lead you to the same important conclusion, live your life to the fullest and love who you truly are.

Following the release of the PERSPECTIVE tracks, Gr8ful is looking forward to the release of several different videos, ranging from behind the scenes moments to visual representations of the music. He will also be gearing up for future tracks and releases. You definitely don’t want to miss out on this artist.

“As a South African artist, I think that my culture and I have a lot to share with the world.” There is so much that Gr8ful has yet to share and he is sure to continue to turn heads.

Make sure to stay tuned in to Gr8ful on various platforms, especially Instagram, for new music, visuals and social posts.

Hip-Hop Group The Underdogs Aspire to Inspire

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

Hip-hop group The Underdogs are embracing imperfections, and creating a brand and musical identity that emphasizes on helping others through hard times.

On their latest single “Be About It,” the New Jersey-based trio—Lady Ink, Rafayel, and Butta—go straight to the point on the track, and see it as a gateway for listeners towards the rest of their music.

“We have Spanish records, we have records about the struggle, but I feel like people receive those things better when they know you better. And so that’s why I felt “Be About It” was one of the stronger ones to push as a record and to drop first because it’s very straight to the point,” says Lady Ink. “We’re just trying to engage the audience before we try and convince them of anything. When it goes like the more emotional records or the records that we’re trying to pull out people’s heartstrings we have to get the people engaged first before we drop those.”

The Underdogs met through mutual friends. Butta is cousins with Raf while Lady Ink re-connected with him through Instagram after he moved from Florida to NJ. Lady Ink has experience in the industry, previously signed to Hit City Records at 17-years-old, and Rafayel’s own project has over 80,000 streams on Spotify.

Their music ranges in variety—trap music, Latino rap that represents their Dominican and Puerto Rican cultures, and East Coast-style bars. On their 2022 record Who let The Dogs out? The Underdogs represent all of that, showing listeners what they’ve got.

But that isn’t all that they’ve got. Underdogs are both their sound, and a collective brand and movement. Under the name 360 Underdog, the group sells a luxury sneaker brand handcrafted in Italy. It’s not just about the aesthetic, but a way for Underdogs to help and advocate for others in need

“The whole point in creating the brand was to reach those people who we can relate to, people who come from nothing and those people who have those doubts and kind of hard to believe in themselves to do anything in life,” explains Lady Ink. “I want to be the advocate for comfortable living, basic human needs, and giving back to the communities in ways where it’s consistent […] We buy into so many things and we support so many things and there seems to be little to no return in doing those things. And I really want my brand Underdog to be that one where I invested in this brand, I’m wearing it, and I can really see how it’s putting structure in my life or affecting my life in a positive way and it’s not just for show or for glamor. It’s really helping people at the end of the day consistently.”

Underdogs want to connect in-person with fans once they begin performing live, and getting their energy out there. But there’s no rush—the group wants to create as much content as  possible for listeners to see and for them to understand how serious they are about their work.

“I don’t want to go out there and try to connect with people and they search us and we have one video and an album. I feel like I really want to get a good amount of content and product out there that when we do reach the consumers and we do get our energy out there, they have something to go off,” says Lady Ink. “We’re really just taking our time and really putting our best foot forward and making sure that everything we put out there is 100%.”
