Morgan Harper-Jones – “Swimming Upstream”

British singer/songwriter Morgan Harper-Jones takes my heart by storm with her new, utterly gorgeous single “Swimming Upstream.” I still have the quietly beautiful “Lie to Me” in my ears, the song that introduced me to her music.

Los Angeles-based artist Cherry Angel delights with the utterly charming debut single “Caffeinated.” The song is much brighter and sparkling than the beloved dark liquid, yet the instant gratification, the little kick, is just the same.

When not touring, Sam can be found in his home[…]

Una Rose

Una Rose – In The Garden Digging

“In The Garden Digging” – with that Montreal-based musician Una Rose means her mother, who picked up a new pastime during the pandemic isolation. But in the bigger picture, gardening can have a deeper meaning. This is what Una Rose muses about in this lighter, shimmering track. “I think that[…]

Rose Gray – Promise Me [Video]

British pop singer/songwriter Rose Gray is on a roll, and there’s no stopping.
