Brooklyn and Venice Beach native, Cozmic has been making waves in the urban electro-pop scene over the past few months with recent singles going viral on social media, critical acclaim in the indie music blogs and a recent deal with Kobalt Music’s AWAL. His latest single, Worth The Wait, artfully fuses tremolo guitars and an 808 driven hip-hop beat with smooth, heartfelt vocals resulting in a sound that’s unique while still swimming in the lanes of current artists like Post Malone, Zayn and The Weeknd. Based on the true story of Cozmic’s best friend, Worth the Wait showcases a softer, lusher side of the artist’s voice and pop lyricism. A minimalist arrangement paves the way for Cozmic’s melodies, harmonies and infectious hooks to shine through, giving fans a closer listen to the wisdom and story behind his lyrics. The track was co-written by Cozmic and key collaborator Charlie Snyder (Bebe Rexha, Max Schneider, X Ambassadors, Illenium, Gnash..)

Rhio’s interest in show business began at the tender age of 7 when she
put on shows for the kids in the neighborhood, however she was delayed
a little in high school when the head of the music department told her
she could NOT sing! Luckily a few years later she met a man who
persuaded her to try again, and she has been singing ever since!

Hungarian. While growing up in California she was exposed to the music
and language of the Latin, and European worlds, along with the music
Cleveland Ohio based band VanishingShores are an act to watch out for in 2019. Mixing emotional indie rock with more traditional american rock sensibilities, VanishingShores are a must hear.
As a lifelong seeker of truth, Kevin Bianchi has spent his entire musical career embracing and wrestling with the mystery of life and love in song. This has been exemplified by his time as the lead singer and songwriter for the indie rock band, the Chestertons. Having achieved regional success with the single ‘Coast Road’ and dynamic performances opening for artists such as James McCartney, he now begins a new journey with the formation of VanishingShores.
“The need to reach out and connect with those around us has never been greater,” states Bianchi. It is this realization that inspires and informs each song by VanishingShores. From the opening of ‘In Between’ to the closing notes of ‘Blurred’ on their self-titled EP, the listener is invited to become a part of the story, not as a stranger but as a fellow traveler who is loved and accepted. The answers may not be found. Everything known may collapse at any moment, but ‘even still, I won’t let you go.’ This promise, in all of its emotional complexity, is the true vision of VanishingShores.
