Albums | Ches Barrow releases single “Wild” to be featured in ITVBe TV Campaign

Posted by on November 16, 2022

Following the release of her debut EP, ‘Girl Who Ruled The World’, Ches Barrow returns with the immense single ‘Wild’. The talented songwriter wrote the track having been approached for a major luxury beauty TV commercial on ITVBe for her luxury beauty brand, Ches Editions (she’ll also be starring in the commercial).

When speaking about ‘Wild’, Ches said: “I of course wrote it with the aesthetic and vibe of the ad in mind; envisioning a fashion-runway edge with the models doing their thing and a low-key ‘luxury beauty’ depth. But it also is absolutely naturally an extension of my artistic-style and musical growth. The lyrics (‘I shake my hair’) attest to Ches Editions’ ‘hero product’ being featured: The Ultimate Oil for Hair. The product and brand is about ‘clean luxury beauty’ and goes against the grain of its competitors; existing as 100% Natural with zero synthetic ingredients. The song encapsulates this fearlessness.”

Produced by Ches, mixed by Grammy and Emmy Award-Winning Carl Glanville (U2, Jason Mraz, Joan Jett, Counting Crows) and mastered by Chris Gehringer (Lady Gaga, Dua Lipa, Rihanna, Avril Lavigne), the track without a doubt empowers you to have confidence within yourself mirrored in its impressive production. Ches, who’s previously received support from the likes of Earmilk, Wordplay and Fame Magazine, openly sings about her experiences, while showcasing her effortless voice:

“My dream has always been about the songwriting and it feels so gratifying to have finally got to a place where I allowed myself to believe in me so much and the result of the production is something I’m truly proud of. This is the culmination of my so-far life’s work to fruition; my growth as an artist and person is in the ‘fearlessness of ‘Wild’; and that it’s going to be in the commercial for my brand that I’ve also worked so hard for and has such a vital message, is everything. I’m here for all of what believing in myself as an Artist brings”

With her relatable songwriting and sync so soon after her debut EP, Ches’s signature songwriting and stamp continues to be heard.

Rap | “Who Am I” See’s an Introspective New Tune via JJ Doze

Posted by on September 26, 2021

New York based rapper JJ Doze is clearly stating he means business in latest deep cut, “Who Am I”. The energetic number with a hard-hitting message is expressive and speaks upon themes the world needs to hear. This one is well worth the listen and was a great introduction to the rising emcee. Check out a thorough quote on the release below and watch the visual above now!

“In the song ‘Who Am I’, I talk about my ability to fail on knowing my purpose as I try to find the answers I’m seeking for. However, that would be the problem. As I fail to realize that there aren’t any answers, I kept ignoring the fact that there are choices. A choice to be patient with myself. A choice to understand myself. A choice to accept myself. But, that was difficult to do as I kept trying to help everyone around me that I completely forgot about myself. So, whenever I would feel frustrated, angry, drained, &/or other feelings, I wouldn’t necessarily know what to do… so that’s when I try to brush it off, which diminishes my path to understand myself, & to know who I am & how I react to certain things during a certain situation. In the song, I bring up other situations that also block that path I deeply want to find. This song means a lot to me. It’s a song that can get you feeling hyped (mainly from the chorus) while also leaving you thinking deeply if you listen closely to the lyrics. It surely expresses my vulnerability, & that is exciting to me but also nerve-wracking”

Alternative | Fiery Indie-Pop Artist Sophie Kilburn Shares Debut EP ‘My Room Made Public’

Posted by on September 12, 2021

Sophie’s new My Room Made Public, is a four-track EP with an indie-pop inspired style fused with a classic 70s flare throughout. It is a bold sonic fusion of old school rocker & modern pop warrior that sits neatly alongside ALT Pop heroes like Haim, Phoebe Bridgers and Soccer Mummy that have successfully contributed to a new genre that fits in both the past and the present, with a heavy emphasis on storytelling. Check out a thorough quote on the project after the jump and stream Sophie’s new EP above now.

“The concept of the EP started from my growing hunger turned obsession with wanting to be heard. What do I have to do to be really listened to, to be taken seriously as an artist, as a woman, as a person? How much do I have to share to feel like I’m enough? I spiraled, thinking ‘it’s just not in the cards for me’. The noise in my head got so loud that it really started to well… piss me off. I became acutely aware of how strong the pressure of sharing everything with everyone all the time is. There is this fear that if you don’t share it all your identity is no longer validated or worthwhile and that can be very dangerous. I don’t want to keep feeling that and I don’t want anyone else feeling that either. The project took on a whole new meaning when the pandemic hit and we were all forced to reflect on ourselves and the world we live in, it made me think well it is more relatable now than ever.  With My Room Made Public, I wanted to create a body of work that is an emotionally open and honest introduction to me as an artist and the songs I write. It is chapter one of what I  hope will become a classic trilogy. At the end of the day, I just want to bring emotional comfort and make people want to fight for what they want out of life, find themselves in their own way and to never settle for something that hurts them. I guess I am trying to do that for myself too  but there is always strength in numbers.” 

RnB | Dear Jane’s New “Dear Jane” Single & EP Is A Must Listen

Posted by on January 17, 2017

When No Requests sends us music, we listen. It’s rare that we hear an artist that immediately grabs our attention. Dear Jane (also known as Tammy Infusino) accomplished that, and then some. Her brand new “Dear Jane” EP produced by Nico Cary and Rafael Casal is six tracks of atmospheric, dark, and mysterious RnB that we can’t get enough of. A honest rendition of someone who can’t stop making bad decisions (we’ve all been there) Dear Jane’s “EP” and title track is a refreshingly raw project, exploring failed relationships, heartbreak, and instability. Did we mention you’ll have it on play for weeks to come?

Grab the free download courtesy of Dear Jane, here.

Dear Jane is a FNT artist to watch.
