Known for her smooth vocals and insightful lyrics, Julia Messenger has just released a new song about the strength of letting someone you love go no matter how painful it is, and it is giving us all the feels.
“Fly Bird”, Julia’s new track, takes inspiration from a friend’s difficult breakup and the idea of setting the one you love free, hoping that one day they will fly back to you. You can feel Julia’s Jazz influence in the song with a prevalent soulful organ and melodic bass. The song also contains background harmonies that feel reminiscent of a church service, giving the piece a very uplifting tone. In the lyrics Julia encourages the listener to “fly free” because if he were to stay with her, the relationship could never be the same. “‘Fly bird’ is coming to an understanding of the fact that in order to really love someone, you need to have the strength to let them go” she states, “as painful as that can be”.

For Jeff Beadle, the reality of working at the speed of inspiration means writing in solitary unromantic spaces, casting an inescapable sadness to his music. Personal evolution and the unconventional wisdom cultivated from extensive touring in Europe, Asia, and Canada, was the catalyst for his new era of dark alternative pop. His unwavering honesty and introspection continue to be the backbone of his lyrics, acquired from years as a folk singer-songwriter.
Beadle’s new single, “Shadows,” comes off as upbeat and fun, but lyrically represents bouts of recurring anxiety.

New single, “I Need That,” is a reminder that you are that b***h, no matter what – even if we’ve all been inside for so long due to lockdowns that we don’t feel so sexy anymore.

Produced by Andre Kaden Black and Tal Vaisman, “One More Heartbreak” is largely about taking care of yourself. Sometimes, we can be doormats to the people in our lives. After too long of living like that, we need to feel some sense of relief. In the case of this song, it is about realizing that the relationship that you have with someone is coming to an end – and it’s going to end badly.
Juno Uno began his songwriting exploring sounds, like most teens do, on an acoustic guitar. He quickly expanded his sounds to other instruments and found a means of expression through the electric guitar and different synths. A brief move to Austin let him explore these sound palettes even more and increased his musical vision through experimentation and focusing his energies inwards to discover his own countless realms of the mind. He then returned home to McKinney where he began committing all of his time to writing and recording.
Juno Uno has developed a style inspired by poetic lyricism, modern psychedelia, and earthy textures which can be heard on his debut single, “Sides”.
