Dave Tate Brings Us on “The Adventure”

Dave Tate’s new album ‘The Adventure’ dives headfirst into the uncertainty of life, the dark and the light, the heavy and the easy, and the balance of walking between them. The Adventure represents a journey of learning to trust in one’s own strength in the face of circumstance. While most of Tate’s solo music leans towards a mellow singer-songwriter vibe, much of ‘The Adventure’ departs into Alternative, Acoustic Rock, and Adult Contemporary territory. Tate’s powerful and angelic range sometimes resembles that of Jeff Buckley, while his hushed voice can bring up echoes of Paul Simon. On ‘The Adventure’, Tate’s guitar style and songwriting can at times be reminiscent of John Mayer. Syncopated rhythms, unique percussive acoustic guitar lines, and both soaring and intimate vocals all support Tate’s poetic vision as he grapples with life’s big questions on ‘The Adventure’

“His own unique style (think of a cross between Paul Simon and Jeff Buckley, not just in style but also in quality) hits such a level of perfection that it’s hard to comprehend anything more beautiful….I have come to know long before now, as Nick Drake was discovered to be, that Tate is one of the most unique singer-songwriters ever.” His songs have a melancholy edge covered by a sweetness similar to that of John Mayer or Jason Mraz. The song “Fall to You” will break your heart while the song “Serendipity” will put it back together. “I look inside” and “Coming Back” are two songs that will touch your heart and songs that we can all relate to during these trying times.

A native of the red rock desert of Zion National Park, Tate’s music is often inspired by the towering beauty of his red rock mountain homeland. Tate has been hailed as “One of the most unique artists ever.” by Heaven Magazine and “An artist who is so incredibly good that you can’t really believe not all music magazines are writing about him already.” by Folk Form in the Netherlands. 

Tate has toured across the Western United States and in Europe on numerous occasions and his work was recently featured in a global on-flight commercial on all American Airlines international flights. Tate’s music spans a variety of styles across his nine studio albums. From the intimate folk on The Solitude of Here, The Same Heart, The Final Hour, The Houses of Healing, and Anima, to the Indie/Pop/Rock: Many Miles, Home is in the Stars and Rising Up. 

When living in Salt Lake City, Tate met Swedish singer-songwriter Victoria Lagerström, a former Ms. Sweden, who came to the US from Stockholm to write and record with Tate. The couple soon fell in love and, three weeks after her arrival were married among the red rock cliffs of Zion. Lagerström never used her return ticket to Sweden. The couple now often performs as a duo, or with a full band under the name Many Miles


Following the irresistibly energetic “Pot of Gold” and his Vevo Ctrl live performance, trailblazing rapper, singer, songwriter, and producer, Felly, has unveiled the official music video for his new single “Bones” from his upcoming album, ‘Young Fel 2.’ Popularly known for soulful songs like “Heartstrings” featuring Carlos Santana and a boundless energy to his music, Felly has once again produced a hit with “Bones” and ‘Young Fel 2,’ the official sequel to Felly’s 2016 debut EP. The new album features his experimental blend of traditional rap, indie rock, and soul, to revisit the original EP’s childlike and playful nature, but with a new-age mindset paired with darker tones to go along with the album’s release date during Felly’s favorite month of the year – October. 

“Bones” was created by an all-star cast of collaborators including A-list co-writer Jesse St. John, who wrote the Billboard number-one single, “Truth Hurts,” by Lizzo, “Something’s Gotta Give” for Camila Cabello, and songs for Britney Spears, Charli XCX, Lauv and many others. The single was co-produced by Midi Jones, who co-produced 2021’s “Dancing With The Devil” for Demi Lovato, “Naked” for Ella Mai, and worked with Alessia Cara, Galantis and many others. “Bones” was also co-produced by Todd Pritchard, who has production credits on songs by Tory Lanez, NBA Youngboy, Trippie Redd, Tinashe and G-Eazy among others.

Speaking about the meaning of the song, Felly stated, “Bones is the succession of heartbreak.   It’s the feeling of like, once you’ve gotten over your heart hurting for someone else that it’s not even about them anymore – it’s about you. Your longing to not feel crushed anymore. It’s almost this pathetic request to feel ok, to feel loved.” Felly continues, “It’s more primal than it is emotional. I wrote it with two of my new favorite producers out here in LA. Midi Jones and Todd Pritchard. I just feel like they’re so good at what they do and see us having many more records together although this is our first one. I even made Todd sing on it which turned out amazing. Hardest beat of all time by the way.”

Felly is the latest signee to 300 Entertainment, home to Young Thug, Megan Thee Stallion, Gunna, and many more. At age 13, Felly began making soulful beats on a MPC500 (with legends like Sam Cooke, Betty LaVette and Barbra Streisand as sample references), inspired by newfound creativity after his dad’s passing at 8 years old. His music aims to mimic the universe’s energy, using that same life force to tackle existential moments with positivity. With Felly’s continuous output of work, he has gained over 1.3 million monthly listeners, over 300 million streams across platforms, has had 5 nation-wide tours, and has received critical praise from Billboard, GRAMMY.com, XXL, HypeBeast, and more.

Felly is welcoming fans to the next chapter with his third album, Young Fel 2. The album, out October 22nd, is a full-circle moment that celebrates how far Felly’s career has excelled after recording Young Fel 1 with his college friends. His previous album Mariposa saw Felly unabashedly uncovering layers of himself. His most recent releases, “Fast Car” and “Still Young” took fans on a ride by discussing the concept of time and celebrating life and vitality. Now, Felly is taking a clear look at what he’s learned, how he’s evolved, and where he wants to go – Young Fel 2 is a journey through music. The album presents Felly’s distinct sound with a twist. It is partly inspired by a growing curiosity about spirituality through hobbies like meditation and collecting religious art. Experimenting with folk-inspired tunes and an evolving alternative sound, Young Fel 2 is a blend of classic hip-hop/indie hybrid tracks with a new-to-Felly future sound.

custie Shares New Single“Jamie Ashland”

custie is an emerging alternative pop artist hailing from London, Ontario. His distinct sound explores genre-blurring pop, pulling influences from R&B, post-punk, and rock.

Jamie Ashland” is a character that custie developed to speak with his own voice, act on his intentions, and deal with his insecurities – just with a different face.

This heartfelt track blends acoustic and electric guitar with beguiling harmonies, speaking to a hypothetical son or daughter: “Love’s a solution thinner than blood / but it solves some problems if you’re willing to trust / and it lives with every heart that was once piled dust.”

This is advice that custie gives himself, completely rooted in his own life, lived through the foil of “Jamie Ashland” for four minutes:

“In an ideal situation, you learn to look outside of yourself, to trust, to be by somebody’s side. It doesn’t fix everything, but it definitely nourishes a part of you,” the artist explains.

 Snotty Nose Rez Kids Debut New Album “Life After”

The title – No Jesus Piece – is a reference to the duo embracing their own spiritual symbols. While they respect people for having their own religions and religious symbols, for Yung Trybez and Young D, they’d rather rock their Copper Shield. The Catholic church and the government of Canada used Catholicism as a tool of annihilation of Indigenous culture, practice, teachings and ways of being. SNRK identify the connections between the importance of putting their faith in a sacred metal, copper or the ‘copper shield.’ 

The song is about SNRK, ignoring the critics around them, and betting on themselves. The duo have seen some fans of their first two albums criticizing them for embracing trap, experimenting with autotune, and developing their sound, but SNRK want to continue to evolve and they’re going to keep making the music they want to make, and put faith in themselves that the fans are going to appreciate what they continue to create. The more upbeat nature of the lyrics is a reflection of when they wrote this song. Written early in COVID times in 2020, the duo hadn’t yet dealt with everything that ultimately led them to create ‘Life After.’ No suicides, family struggles, uncovering of mass graves at residential schools, loneliness and isolation of COVID and depression.

Charissa Reveals Bold New Single “Scars and All”

Drawing from her twin passions for Americana and classic soul, Charissa weaves new, original stories that are at times gleefully hopeful, tearfully heartbreaking, and always a perfect blend of modern and timelessness.

Her new single, “Scars and All,” a confessional yet laid back country track, is about wanting someone to accept you for all that you are. 

Instead of trying to change who you are, it’s important to recognize that we are all made up of  the good, the bad, and the in-between. Charissa uses this song to admit that she isn’t perfect – no one is – and owns it anyway.
