JonPaul Wallace – Love’s Not For Everyone

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

Despite the Title, JonPaul Wallace’s Single, “Love’s Not for Everyone,” Defines Contemporary Pop

DETROIT – After going viral with his rewrite of Lukas Graham’s “7 Years,” JonPaul Wallace has silenced any critics who muttered the phrase, “one-hit-wonder.” While Wallace’s graduation performance of Graham’s hit accumulated more than 20 million views across streaming platforms, Wallace has taken the popularity in stride, focusing on the future.  

“Honestly, it was completely unexpected,” said JonPaul Wallace. “I wanted to cover the song, but it says, 20 years, and I was only seventeen at the time. So, I changed up the lyrics to make it more suitable to me.” 

With a discography of cover songs, each with his take on it, Wallace is now focusing on songwriting and performing. His latest single, “Love’s Not for Everyone,” displays the Michigan native’s abilities to blend pop and soulful rhythms.  

In the slow and heavy melodic vocal tune, Wallace captures the feeling when a relationship ends. Instead of wallowing in the heartache, “Love’s Not for Everyone” is a declaration of acceptance and loneliness that comes after ending a relationship. The ballad which drops in December represents the softer side of Wallace’s contemporary pop style.  

“I definitely pull a lot of inspiration from Motown and old soul music and put that in there, especially with a lot of my background vocals and vocal performances,” he explained. “There’s a lot of old soul influence in what I do. It’s something about growing up around Detroit. Soul is ingrained in me.” 

Interestingly, Wallace did not write “Love’s Not for Everyone” in just one settling. After spending a few days in Northern Michigan on a solo writing trip, Wallace drove home when inspiration struck. “On my drive home, I was on I-75. I actually have a voice memo of me working on what became the bridge of ‘Love’s Not for Everyone,’” he said.  

Even though the bridge was done, he put it aside to work on other songs with faster beats and more dance-like tracks. However, something was nagging at him to finish the piece. So, in typical Wallace style, he stepped away from the up-tempo songs and finished “Love’s Not for Everyone.”

“Lyrically, nothing changed. It was almost like a first try in the studio,” he said, knowing that the song was perfect for him and his fans.  

With a finance and marketing degree from Oakland University, Wallace focuses full-time on being a singer, songwriter, and performer. “When I’m on stage, I’m always behind a guitar or piano. I just have a lot of fun on stage. I don’t try to be too heavy. I want to make music that takes you where you can forget about everything for a little while,” he said.  

While “Love’s Not for Everyone” is a departure from Wallace’s typical upbeat pop songs, it showcases his versatility and strength as a singer and songwriter. Taking a few cues from the legendary Stevie Wonder and Billie Eilish, Wallace said, “My original music brings a different sound to the table. It’s focused on background vocals in a soulful way. But a lot of the production and melodies come from a modern and contemporary pop-dance style. It’s pretty different from what’s out there now. It’s what I do best.”

State Space – Lanterns of Tomorrow

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

International artist State Space meets listeners at intersection of art and reality 

BERLIN, GERMANY – Anyone who has a background in science can tell you that there’s a popular term called “State Space” that refers to a range of possible variables. For Ukraine-born artist Vova Tumasiants, it’s the perfect metaphor of his life and artistry, and it’s the reason why he has adopted the term as his stage name as he embarks on a journey of international attention with his new music. 

Trained as an engineer and currently living in Berlin, Germany, State Space has always been a lover of music and uses every spare moment he has to create his own brand of sound. As his name implies, he’s a multi-faceted artist and all-around lover of music who adopts a limitless approach to creation. His body of work to date is impressively unique, diverse, and deeply imaginative. He draws inspiration from a variety of sources – from 90s Brit Rock bands like Oasis and The Verve, to Classic Rock groups like Led Zeppelin and Queen, and even Pop icons Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake. And through those inspirations he has developed a genre-fluid approach to his own musical creations. 

That individuality takes center stage on his new single “Lanterns of Tomorrow,” which is set to release across all streaming platforms in early December. Listeners familiar with Oasis and The Verve will immediately recognize those bands’ influences on State Space with this single. The ethereal EDM opening makes way for a truly alt-rock vibe that’s one part singer/songwriter and one part 90s nostalgia. The song has a mellow groove to it that just feels good – like you’re cruising down the highway on a beautiful autumn day. It’s a song about a guy who keeps chasing his dreams and doesn’t give up. Like lanterns in the night, he sees the hope of a brighter future, even in the midst of his darkness. Ultimately, it’s a song that says, “Tomorrow will be good. Everything you hope to achieve can be realized, if you only keep on trying.” 

“I like the warm sound that comes with bringing together the British alt-rock sound and the Pop vibes that I’m such a big fan of,” State Space said. “This song in particular sounds kind of chill – almost bittersweet – but also with that warm kind of vibe that I’m always trying to create. It’s very much an autumnal song, with no hard rock guitar riffs or anything like that. But this is just one example of my music. I don’t have any specific genre that I make music in. I have alt-rock songs, and disco songs, and singer/songwriter songs, and everything in between. My upcoming debut EP will be kind of a funky Pop kind of a vibe with some catchy melodies. And I hope people come to recognize that special approach I’m taking when it comes to making music.”

Shocks Band – One Hit Wonder

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

Shocks Band Blends Pop and Jazz in “One Hit Wonder” Album 

FLAGLER BEACH – The term “one-hit wonder” usually refers to an artist that has a hit and never releases another single to reach the previous song’s popularity. That is not the case for Shocks Band and their latest album, “One Hit Wonder.” 

The ten-track LP is packed full of fan-favorite original songs written and performed by Eric Whitman.  

“There really wasn’t anything new out in 2020 and 2021,” explained Eric Whitman. “So, I figured this was a good time for me to do an album because, with the pandemic, I was stuck home. So, I wrote all the songs.” 

“One Hit Wonder” is 100% studio work compared to the Shock Band’s 2011 album, “A Dedication to Alan Zill,” containing live tracks.  

Mixing pop music with some New Orleans style jazz, Whitman’s latest album hits all the right notes and gains popularity on streaming platforms and CD sales. While many fans enjoy the ease of streaming music, the “One Hit Wonder” CD is unique with its hand-drawn cover art by Whitman’s daughter Danielle Whitman. Additionally, liner notes credit the musicians who play on the album’s tracks, which fans do not get to see when streaming music.  

“I had music producers Nicole and Courtney with me in the studio, and I played with several other young musicians on the saxophone and lead guitar,” explained the Miami native who plays rhythm and bass guitar on the album.  

With its signature guitar riffs and some sweet melodies, the single “I Don’t Know (Voice)” is getting the attention of pop and rock lovers. The album contains two versions because when it’s good, why choose just one version – right?  

“Everybody seems to like it. It’s a really good song,” said Whitman. “I wrote the song because every time I turned the news on, there were all these unknowns. We don’t know about this; we don’t know about that. The song just came to me, and I knew I had to record it.” 

When asked if he got any of his questions answered, Whitman replied with a chuckle, “You’ll have to listen to the song; maybe it’ll explain it.” 

While “I Don’t Know (Voice)” is picking up traction on streaming platforms, Whitman said it is not the only “One Hit Wonder” song getting noticed. The album’s diversity appeals to music fans who enjoy rock, pop, and jazz.  

“It all depends on how I wake up in the morning. It’s like whatever comes. It’s just mine. I play it,” explained Whitman about his writing style. “I just go with the flow.” 

“One Hit Wonder” also contains “New Orleans,” a jazzy tune with a haunting tenor sax, while “Starlite” showcases a mandolin that “kicks butt.” But Whitman does not put his writing into a box to please fans.  

“When people see the ‘One Hit Wonder’ cover, they want to play it. I want them to have fun and enjoy the music.”

Purzia – Sacrifice

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

Purzia’s Debut Single, “Sacrifice” Focuses on Inner Demons

PHOENIX, AZ – With raw vocals and mesmerizing lyrics, American singer-songwriter and music video producer Purzia is making a big splash with her debut single, “Sacrifice.”

Dubbed as the WestsideMermaid, a nickname from childhood, there is nothing childlike about this 25-year-old artist. Purzia has the uncanny ability to blend her creative side with evocative lyrics to capture listeners’ imaginations and communicate emotions that many artists cannot fathom exploring.

Influenced by strong, independent female musicians, Purzia’s voice combines a husky but edgy Stevie Nicks and a sultry Billie Eilish sound. Her debut single, “Sacrifice,” dropped on Oct. 31, allowing fans to hear the alternative pop and folk melodies of Purzia.

“I love to dive deep into my mind and soul for inspiration,” said Purzia. “A lot of people struggle with addiction, anxiety and demons. They have to fight with an everyday struggle. ‘Sacrifice’ is about fighting that certain demon, that, no matter what happens, you need just to fight it. But everything’s going to be OK in the end.”

In addition to the single’s release, the “Sacrifice” music video dropped on Oct. 31. The video is a dark representation of a person’s inner demons. Coincidentally, dropping on Halloween, the video is not based on the spooky holiday. Purzia says, “In the video, the Devil comes out, and it’s about the Devil taking my soul away, but it’s not about the Devil.”

Using the Devil as a metaphor for addiction or inner demons, “Sacrifice” showcases Purzia’s ability to dig below the surface for an emotionally, in-depth song that translates into relatability with her fans.

“Everyone needs to know that it’s OK to be yourself,” said Purzia. “It’s OK to be authentic, unique and different.”

Demonstrating her versatility, Purzia’s second single, “Calling,” will drop in December and is quite different from “Sacrifice.” The upbeat pop song “Calling” is a fun track that shows Purzia’s unique ability to appeal to a broad spectrum of fans.

Connecting to her fans, Purzia is electric during performing. From exhibiting “crazy energy” while on stage to her Harajuku-style attire, Purzia is living her life her way, making a definite footprint in the industry.

Currently residing in Arizona, Purzia spent most of her childhood in a single-parent home in Turlock, CA. Citing her mother as her biggest supporter, Purzia said, “She supports me in my dreams, ever since I was little. That’s also where the mermaid name comes from. She said I had hair like a mermaid and a soulful voice.”

Coupled with the fact that she lived on the westside of Turlock, the WestsideMermaid nickname was born and continues to identify Purzia on her social media accounts.

Looking ahead to the future, she enjoys interacting with her fans and is eager for them to hear “Sacrifice.”

“I love my supporters for always pushing me to be a better me because this was not easy to do. Coming from where I came from, they’re the reason why I’m writing music and why I want to continue singing,” Purzia said.

GeoMike122 – Above

Blog, Industry Spotlight, ME Blog, Music, Promo

Teacher by day, musician by night, GeoMike offers intriguing insight on catchy new single ‘Above’ 

NEW YORK, NY – Electronic-driven, low-key rock vibes set against a tightly-reined frenetic energy are capturing the attention of new audiences all over the world with the new single “Above.” Coming from East Coast artist GeoMike122, the song showcases this talented musicians syncopated rap style over the top of a rapid-fire high-hat and ethereal synths for a sound that truly caresses the senses. It’s a song that makes you itch with energy. Reminiscent of a vibe made famous by David Bowie, the song explores the after-effects of a toxic and abusive relationship and offers listeners a sense of hope that there’s something brighter at the end of something tragic.  

“It was inspired by my own experience of overcoming a toxic, abusive relationship,” GeoMike said. “In the song I compare it to a fog because that’s how I felt – like I was in a mental state of fox. The partner I was with was more negative and cynical than anything else, and it took a lot of light and faith to get me through that. In the song I talk about how the fog was burned off by the sun, and in the end I rose above those experiences. I hope that my ex finds faith and searches the divine to find something not of this world – something ‘above.’” 

The song is the first off an upcoming album called “Michael Ciolino,” which is set to release on Oct. 22. It’s a project that this up-and-coming artist has been working on for the past few years in his spare time when not teaching third grade to students in the New York area. He has always had a love of music, and over the years has dabbled with different sounds and styles. Along the way he’s created a style that is certainly unique – something that he refers to as “Sound Pop.” It’s a sound that features an impressive blend of instrumentation and lyrics in ways that are equal parts intriguing and entertaining.  

“I’m trying to have my music match where I want to go in life,” Mike said. “It’s inspiring and motivating and has you question things. It’s challenging. As a teacher – and really, just as my personality – I’m always questioning things. I understand why boxes exist, but I like to think outside the box, and my music is all about advocating for you to find your own voice. I think it’s really important to have that. Music has always been inspiring to me in that way, and that’s what I want to create and provide for others. That’s why I say it’s Sound Pop – it’s genre-less. I’m a teacher who loves doing this because I love motivating people and entertaining people. We’re in a cycle where people want something that’s more original and authentic, and that’s what I hope to bring to the table.”

Michelle Fabre – You Stole My Makeup

Blog, Industry Spotlight, ME Blog, Music, Promo

Fast-rising young artist Michelle Fabre drops another hit single with ‘You Stole My Makeup’ 

LONG ISLAND, NY – Michelle Fabre is different than any other female artist in the game today. Her voice is individual … unique. She’s not your cookie-cutter Pop princess or the typical raspy-voiced rocker. Instead, her vocal talents and music-making ability are genre-bending in the best of ways. Her versatility as an artist nods to some of her influences – such as Dua Lipa, Shawn Mendez, BTS, Amy Winehouse, Santana, Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan and more – but at the end of the day her originality shines through everything she does. 

That originality takes center stage with her new 12-song album “Find Your Fire.” Exploring themes of persistence and passion, the album takes a close look at what it takes to realize one’s dreams. Fabre said it’s the kind of album that will help people “find what their passion is and use it to get out of hard situations.” A truly motivational project that injects listeners with the fuel to push forward through life’s difficulties, “Find Your Fire” is the kind of album that is destined to put Fabre on the international stage. 

The latest release from that project is the hit single “You Stole My Makeup.” Inspired by an actual real-life situation in which a friend stole her makeup, the song is a Dance/Pop fusion that’s filled with upbeat energy and just a fun song to enjoy with friends. It’s already been getting a lot of radio play along the East Coast with more than 10 stations putting it on regular rotation, and has been used by more than a dozen different TikTok influencers in various videos.  

“I intended for this one to be very dance-able and something that you would see on today’s top hits,” she said. “Usually, I like to lean a little toward that 80s sound that’s also very popular today, but this one is a little more current with a strong hook.” 

At only 24-years-old, Fabre has stamped herself as an eclectic singer and songwriter who demands attention. She’s been creating quite a buzz among industry insiders and fans alike since she was age 4, when she was featured on her first national commercial for Eskimo Pie. Since that time she’s performed on commercials for other major brands including Zwinky Cuties, Long Island Aquarium, Sam’s Club, Goodyear, Hertz Corp., Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader, and Nu Skin. At age 12 hit producer Jimmy Wisner (who has produced hit records for Barbra Streisand, Tommy James, Neil Sadaka and more) took a liking to her voice and used her on backup vocals for many of his projects. Fabre has also been a regular performer in musical theater in and around New York in shows such as Aladdin, Guys and Dolls, and Oliver.

Midnight Clover – Danny

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

The band Midnight Clover brings an intriguing, mysterious, sexy sound to the masses with new album ‘FloW’ 

LAS VEGAS, NV – When you take the easy rock sounds of classics like Fleetwood Mac and the early years of The Pretenders, and mix those with influences ranging from David Bowie to PJ Harvey to Nirvana with a raw-voiced, rocking female vocalist, then you’ve got a good idea of what drives “Midnight Clover.” 

Las Vegas, NV-based Midnight Clover has performed regularly in bars and larger venues up and down the West Coast and across the Southwestern United States for the better part of seven years.  When the coronavirus pandemic shut down social gatherings, the band decided to take advantage of the break and write new music.  The  result is their new album “FloW,” which is currently available across all streaming platforms. 

The album features eight songs that explore a variety of styles and sounds in the Rock and Indie genres. These songs reflect different subject matter and musical textures that the group has created while touring and performing over recent years.  

Featuring guitarist Johnie Stomp, drummer Jimmie Bohn, bassist Roman, and lead singer Clover Corby, the group offers funk/punk indie rock with a truly relevant vibe for the current landscape of today’s music industry. With seamless ease the band fuses delightful sensibilities of old-school grunge and New Wave with infectious guitar-driven melodies of alternative indie rock. 

Clover says, “Every song on this album is a little bit different. I like more storytelling types of 

songs, and I don’t feel like the album has just one overall theme, but instead shares many different stories. There are a couple of songs that are about being empowered to take back control of your life, and a few playful songs as well.” 

The debut single from the project is “Danny,” which Clover refers to as “sexy, playful and honest.” It has a catchy chorus that will have you singing along. 

“More than anything, we just want people to have fun and enjoy our music,” Clover said. “A lot of people who have seen us perform have said that we’re a fun and unique rock band – and that’s exactly what we want to bring.”  

So…what does Clover do at midnight? “We’re embracing the mood of ethereal rock at midnight.”

Bsenjo – Risen Lord

Industry Spotlight, ME Blog, Music, Promo

Besenjo and Harlem Gospel Choir offer blessing to the world with new single ‘Risen Lord’ 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Anybody who listens to the music of East Coast R&B artist Bsenjo should be blessed. With an otherworldly vocal ability and uplifting lyrics, this young artist on the rise is showcasing an impressive talent that has led to multiple collaborations with big names in the industry. And she’s set to expand that notoriety to the global stage with her latest hit single “Risen Lord,” slated for release across all streaming platforms on Sept. 19. 

Born Belinda Senjo in the northwest region of Cameroon, this contemporary Gospel artist and songwriter eventually moved to the U.S. in her teenage years to pursue music. Prior to moving to the States, however, she started making a name for herself as a young woman with an impressive vocal range and the ability to emote with others through song. In 2010, while still living in Cameroon, she released her first album “Stand On Your Faith.” And though the reception from that project was limited to her region, it was enough to spur her on to continue pursuing a dream as a global recording artist. 

In 2013 she won the American DV Lottery and was able to move to the U.S. Soon after arriving she began to do covers of artists who inspired her – including Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Tasha Cobbs and CeCe Winans. She would post the covers to her various social media platforms and began gaining an ever-increasing group of fans. In 2014 she decided to showcase her talent to the rest of the world by auditioning for America’s Got Talent, and then again in 2016. The experience took her career to the next level.  

She hasn’t looked back since, and in the ensuing years she has dropped hit single after hit single. The latest is “Risen Lord,” and it’s the perfect song to showcase her evolution as an artist. Featuring the esteemed Harlem Gospel Choir, the song serves as an acknowledgement of everything God has done in her life and give Him all the glory for the success she’s seen to date as a recording artist. 

“Through all the storms in my life and the dark times, he has always been there to light my path and get my way around it and through it all,” Bsenjo said. “More than anything I want my music to be known for its authenticity and for helping people to know the fear of God. Everybody listening to my song should end up being blessed. I want to give people Jesus, not goosebumps. I want them to learn about and appreciate the love of God – and reflect on how good God has been to us. Every single moment of our lives is because of His mercy and grace. He will always be there during our dark times and our happy times. So more than anything I want my music to inspire people to trust God.”

Nilooteh – Watch Me

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

Nilooteh uses power of music to inspire others to embrace free spirit 

LOS ANGELES, CA – Nilooteh is a woman with a rebel heart that isn’t meant to be tamed – a wild child with a free spirit and reckless mind. She’s the kind of free-spirited woman who is stifled in a strict regime like her home country of Iran, which forces women to cover their body and hair from head-to-toe. Women in Iran don’t have the freedom to do what they want, even when it comes to pursuing a career. And artistic pursuits are extremely frowned upon. But Nilooteh knew she had to be true to herself and break free from those constraints, so she moved to the U.S. 

Now based in Los Angeles, this budding young artist is setting the world on fire with her unique sound and style. From music to fashion to art and various other forms of inspirational multi-media, Nilooteh is an artist demanding attention. And she’s showcasing that unique individuality across four new singles that she’ll be releasing every two weeks over the next two months.  

The first release is “Watch Me,” a Deep House track with engaging EDM vibes meant to introduce the world to her unique brand of art. Slated for release across all streaming platforms on Sept. 9, the song embraces the idea of love in its many forms, and encourages listeners to not only tap into the energy and use it as a mood-booster, but also to consider what it means to be someone who loves without limits. 

“If the Divine Source creates all that is beautiful and is working through everything, then the more you love, the more you embrace all parts of yourself, others, nature, and all beauty of the world,” she said. “This leads to better union and integration with the Source and provides true healing. As a result, you reclaim your rightful divine power. You also fully accept in yourself and others what is not of the Source – not beautiful – but realize that it is an error in understanding or choice. You forgive yourself or the other and work to achieve understanding. Ultimately I believe that women have the right to be free, and all the lyrics of my songs are about being wild and instinctive and sexual and sensual. It’s a little bit extra, but I want it to be because I want to show the world that I’m bold.” 

Nilooteh said she wants to focus her music on that idea of freedom – both physically and mentally. She said too many people today are prisoners of their own thoughts and she hopes her music will become the vehicle behind which more people in the world find true freedom. She moved to the U.S. to find that freedom, and now that she has she’s excited to use her music to help free others.

Chris Birkett – Precious Love

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

Music industry legend Chris Birkett releases timely smooth rock love ballad 

TORONTO, CANADA – One of the music industry’s premier artists and entertainers has dropped yet another hit single. Chris Birkett – whose music collaborations with A-list international artists include Sinead O’Connor, Dexys Midnight Runners, Talking Heads, Led Zeppelin, and more – has recently released a smooth rock love ballad called “Precious Love” that is burning like a wildfire around the globe.  

Featuring Birkett’s signature raspy voice set against a saxophone melody and smooth guitar riffs, the song feels like Bruce Springsteen and Bryan Adams with a little bit of Tom Petty. It’s a sound that fans of Birkett have been familiar with for years, and one that he’s perfected while working in the inner circles of the industry for the last 40-plus years. His work – both original and through collaborations with other big-name artists – have sold more than 100 million records and helped earn four Canadian Junos, a Grammy, a Polaris Music Prize, and three international AMPEX Golden Reel Awards for excellence in the music business. And with “Precious Love” he puts that pedigree and excellence on full display. 

“This is a song about how positive feelings can grow and how love can transform people,” Birkett said. “People are precious, and relationships are the foundation of humanity. Pure and simple, this is a love song. It’s a song that can give people hope. I’m usually writing songs about social issues or spiritual things, but this is a love song that was inspired by my wife and I think it’s an important song for right now. What most people think of love is passion and attraction, but that only lights the way to a relationship. Precious love is true love. It’s unconditional regard and concern for the welfare of another person. That’s how I define love, and that’s what I’m trying to say in this song.” 

Written and performed by Birkett, the song features some of Toronto’s finest musicians, including Bill King on keyboards, Gene Hardy on sax, Paul DeLong on drums, and background vocals from Taylor Abrahamse. The video was created by renowned director Joan Prowse.  

“Precious Love” is merely the latest of a string of hits for Birkett, who said he has even more music planned for release later this year and going into 2022. On November 11, 2019 he released his fourth album aptly titled “11:11.” But shortly after that COVID hit and the pandemic and social distancing curtailed his touring plans. He took advantage of the time available to him in the studio and put together a string of singles that he’s now ready to release. Following “Precious Love” Birkett said he’s going to drop “Wake Up,” which is more of a political song based on the ever-increasing climate crisis that will serve as a call to action for anyone who hears it.  

“My mission in life – my soul contract – is to use my skills of music composition and performing to make people feel better about themselves,” he said. “There’s so much negativity out there today – so much heartbreak and fear. I want to get people to come back to themselves with these songs and feel how wonderful they are. We’re all divine, but we don’t feel it because we’re covered by doubt and fear. I’m using the universal language of music to convey truth, and by crafting great records I’m helping people understand that truth.”
