Pamela Méndez is a DIY artist from Switzerland who will release her first album through her own label PROMOTE LOVE RECORDS in Feb 2019.
The lead single to the album also called "Time" will be out the 2nd of November. Thematically the song wants to encourage us to reflect on the consequences of our lifestyles: Are we investing as much time and love in the things that really matter? Pamela sees an overall political relevance in that question. Though being truthful to ones self often means taking a step into the unknown. A thing that Pamela is quite good at. Musically she is strongly influenced by Bands such as U.S. Girls, Grizzly Bear, Talk Talk but also more instrumental music such as Steve Reich or Bonobo.
The Mammals are a progressive folk roots band from Woodstock, NY fronted by singer / songwriters Ruth Ungar and Mike Merenda. Touring as a five-piece since the early 2000s, The Mammals draw from the deep well of American musical forms and present a highly dynamic concert that is authentic, inspiring, heartfelt and original. Their new record is called Sunshiner.
"Beautiful One is essentially a demo recording that I created alone in the studio one day. As I observe the gender stereotypes of our culture effecting our children by witnessing the interesting ways they each resist or embrace them. The movie-princess and super-hero stereotypes of a male and female dwell somewhere in all of our minds. Hopefully there are some much more interesting characters in there too." - Ruth Ungar

Laura Cortese wears many hats: fiddler, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, bandleader, community builder, and creativity instigator. Her band Laura Cortese & the Dance Cards is a quartet of singing string players whose original music draws from diverse traditions and experiences to create a broad-minded yet clear-eyed sonic vision. It’s based in the lyrical rituals of folk music while exploring new territories, moving seamlessly from gauzy, ethereal vocal harmonies to rowdy indie-rock percussion to propulsive fiddle melodies directly from Appalachia or Scotland.
"Pace Myself" by Laura Cortese & the Dance Cards, co-written with Ana Egge represents the words we hear from lovers, family, teachers, and friends that try to shape us into something other who we are. Growing up, I was always "Too intense." Be less enthusiastic. Be more mysterious. Who were you told to be? Did you listen? This video is a reminder to create space, to reflect, and to celebrate as we define ourselves in your own words. #PaceMyself

Edelplanet is a musical project that wants to be emotionally challenging in its music and videos. The video is about daring to move on, even though it seems impossible. Surrender and dare to go through the storm and "feel" it as well. It is also about daring to trust and have faith in something bigger when times are dark and difficult.

Indie Folk-Rock combination Suzanne's Band is the official vehicle driven by Texas based singer/songwriter Mia Suzanne Walker. Career highlights include being Captain of the Air Force choir at Sheppard AFB and also being in a vocal group backing up Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith. The anti-genre approach to her songwriting creates an entirely different basis to build on along with introspective ideals and the importance of self-worth laced into the lyrics. The video of Down In Mexico makes you feel like you really feel like you need to pack a bag and get away for awhile. The cell phone being chucked into the sand is a snap shot of emotion that we've all felt at some point or another with that "one person" who just can't seem to put down their phone! If you're looking for a deeper connection to life through music, Suzanne's Band is it!

Lynz Crichton is an independent award-winning singer-songwriter from Nottingham in the UK and her style is reminiscent of female musicians like Jewel, Grace Potter and Amy MacDonald. She is part of the new wave of independent musicians, where friends of her music are at the center of everything she does. Her recent double EP release was called 'We Made This' and was born out of a project where Lynz would include her Crichton Clan at every step of the way. She recorded acoustic demo's of as many songs as she could within the first 90 days of 2018, and then asked the Crichton Clan to vote on which ones they wanted on the EP. The response blew her away, and very quickly she realised that her followers wanted to be part of the creative process. The Limited Run of CD's sold out within two weeks and now Lynz wants to share her music with you too. This music video for Back Together was the very first single Lynz ever released. If you'd like to be part of the next project inside the Crichton Clan, go to https://www.subscribepage.com/WOSradio or head over to www.lynzcrichton.com

This music video was filmed in a single session in Oakland. This song has a very special place in my heart. I wrote it shortly after my now-spouse and I started dating. It is so fitting that this is my first video, since I don't think I could have made this album happen without Harlow's support.

In spring of 2015 God Sent me an angel!! While visiting us our guitar player, Dave Bergquist, he called an old friend of his in Minneapolis, Kim Martin!! A few weeks later she called asked to write a song for me! She sent me a song “Angels Are Among Us” about when angels are among us we never walk alone, and as a breast cancer survivor, this song has great meaning to me! It touched my heart and I loved it, so Dave put chords to it! After practicing, we went to the Two Bird Dogs Studio, owned by Steve Bankey in Dakota Dunes SD and recorded a scratch vocal and instrumental!
In the meantime, a musician in Nashville, Gerry Peters of Midi Magic Studio contacted me through LinkedIn and wanted to work with me! The rough track was sent to him. After receiving the final instrumental track, I returned to the studio to record the song! Steve then sent it to Gerry for mastering and harmony!
Gerry Peters then made a video to go with the song and released it in 2017!

Aerial Minds is the first of a cycle of four EPs by Berlin indie musician Valeska Rautenberg: Each dedicated to one of the four elements.
Every song is a facet. An element. But whole on their own. The video to 'I Am Weak And So Are You', the opening song, is a world of images showing what the song looks like to Valeska.
Let’s start with air: All four songs, though they vary in genre (from Darkpop/Trip-Hop to Storytelling Piano-Tunes), explore the EP’s main theme; the element air, capturing the intangible, ethereal and unthinkable in their own very unique ways.
It gets political, deals with loss, falls in love with human weaknesses and much more.

If there is one thing you can learn from Loren Cole, it’s to question everything. The singer-songwriter came of age in the digital world, but even she finds the whole social media landscape a bit exhausting. Her forthcoming debut album, For the Sake of Being Honest (out Aug. 24), serves as a reminder that what matters most is what is happening right here, right now. She’s only 22, but her mind is sharp and her songwriting is sharper. She’s shared stages with the likes of Jewel, The Accidentals, Mike Mains, Joe Hertler & the Rainbow Seekers and many others. This is only the beginning of a very promising career.
The album was produced by Henry Was, son of the pioneering musician, producer and record exec Don Was (The Rolling Stones, John Mayer, Stevie Nicks) out of his Santa Monica studio.
Loren Cole is young, but wise beyond her years. For the Sake of Being Honest is a mighty collection of truth, steeped in life-affirming epiphanies that only come from living with eyes sincerely open. Her shrewd and engaging examinations of relationships and coming-of-age are culled through detaching herself from a world of narcissism and toxicity. Her talents are captivating, and if this is her beginning, she's got a long career peeking up over the horizon.

Seattle Neosoul/ RnB artist Carina Lewis, is a voice to be reckoned with. A life fully lived has culminated in music steeped in honesty, passion and pain. Her deep and sultry vocals mesmerize and seem to have the power to tame the rowdiest of crowds.
“Baby Boy,” was written as a lullaby for Carina’s son and has also become an anthem of a mother’s struggle to love both herself and her child to the very best of her ability.
The song has recently been released as a single in her usual soulful style peppered with electronic elements. This video version, however, is a poignant behind the scenes look at who Carina really is.
