Performance and Interview series, with host Brent Butler.
... just like New York graffiti.
The thing I enjoy about Katie's music is not simply that her songs touch a place in my heart, but they are filled with a positivity that assures us that everything will be alright. A sense that survival is more than just living. It is something that gives more meaning to your actions and this is someone you can trust to take you on that journey.
"New York Graffiti" Live & Acoustic at Popdust [10.18.17]
The imagery for this song is especially significant for anyone that lives in New York City. It is all around. It permeates every inch of wall space it is allowed and some that aren't. What does Katie mean? It is simple. It's not a stalker song, like "Every Breath You Take" . Every corner you turn, no matter where go in this city, we'll always run into each other, as though drawn by magnetic force. Almost as if it was meant to be. A true New York City love affair.
"Holiday" Live & Acoustic at Popdust [10.18.17]
If you were to go on an adventure, what music would you take with you? Back in the day, you had to pick which CD's could fit in your bag. That Disc-man had batteries and I had an extra set always. If I was on a desert island, I would want to be on Holiday with Katie. It was mentioned that there is a connection to Rivers of Weezer. Was that song a reference to the track on the Blue Album... to a distant land. She takes us there with a great melody line and rhythm of her vocals. It seems this is a common element in this songwriter's bag. It creates a strong hook that has me singing it in my head long after it has played.
"New World" Live & Acoustic at Popdust [10.18.17]
She believes that we have the power to improve the state of our collective existence and help each other to be more considerate to one another. With this belief she affirms it with this song about the world we can create.

"My third album Twice the Love is unlike anythingI've made before in that each song was written and recorded in a different city with a different creative collaborator. I learned to let go making this album and my wish is that those who listen to it will feel open-hearted, alive, and free spirited in their journey to follow their dreams." - Katie Costello
A California native, Costello began writing songs as early as thirteen years old.Eventually she began performing her songs around Los Angeles, and when she turned seventeen, released her debut full-length album, Kaleidoscope Machine. A year later, Katie would leave the insular nature of Los Angeles to find new inspiration and cultural diversity in New York City's Lower East Side.
Twice the Love features standout tracks "New York Graffiti" and "Holiday," as well as the powerful synth-driven ballad "Why Does My Heart Break." The fact that Costello collaborated with various musicians and producers on the record is apparent. "Holiday"was produced by Justyn Pilbrow (The Neighborhood), and third single "Here & Now" was produced by Tim Myers (founding member of One Republic).
"HEARTS ON FIRE" Official Music Video
The beautiful color scheme and ultra clarity sets this anthem off. The backdrop has a feeling of unity on a world level. I am reminded of Imagine Dragons, or even an Annie Lenox candor and subtly of Chrissy Hynde. Sick key solo too. Let these flames get you higher!!

The newly passed "BTS Law" allows K-pop stars to defer mandatory military service.
This week South Korea's National Assembly passed a law that is sure to have BTS ARMY cheering them on.
Generally speaking, all South Korean men are required to spend at least 18 months enlisted in the military, with the final cut-off for entry at age 28. But the new legislation — informally referred to as "The BTS Law" — will allow K-pop stars who meet certain requirements to defer until the age of 30.

"I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they and my name is Elliot."
Academy Award-nominated actor Elliot Page has come out as transgender.
Page, known for his roles in films like Juno, Whip It, and Inception, announced his coming out in a social media post today. "Hi friends, I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they and my name is Elliot," he wrote. "I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here. To have arrived at this place in my life."
Every year, Spotify listeners win out over devotees to other streaming platforms when they unveil their Spotify Wrapped playlists — a data driven analysis of what the year sounded like.
And while this year's personal Spotify Wrapped summaries are still loading, Spotify just released their data for their most streamed global music and podcasts of the year.
Announced the week following the Grammy nominations, Spotify Wrapped feels like vindication for artists who were snubbed by the awards committee, like The Weeknd and Halsey.
The summary also analyzed trends of when and how people were listening to content, noting increased popularity in nostalgia-themed playlists and work-from-home-themed playlists. Spotify users were understandably playing music from home more, which even caused an uptick in streaming music from gaming consoles. Listeners also tuned obsessively into wellness podcasts like never before.
After months of on and off again speculation, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky seem to be dating.
Obviously, this is good news if it's true. Can you imagine? For the coordinating outfits alone, I need it.
There have been a ton of icky white rappers over the years, but these take the cake.
On this day in 1990, Vanilla Ice's "Under Pressure" reboot "Ice, Ice Baby" debuted at No. 1 in the UK, kickstarting a Billboard run that would soon carry over to the states and invigorate a fleeting love for Vanilla Ice and his whole...vibe.
Of course, we all know how it ends. Vanilla Ice's credibility and career unraveled as quickly as it began. "Ice Ice Baby" took on a satirical identity larger than its creator, all while Robert Van Wrinkle refused to pay royalties (or even give a shout-out) to Freddie Mercury and David Bowie despite liberally sampling the track's true creators. Ice instead tried to cultivate a hollow rap identity, one where he was a hardened former-gang member from Miami and not a middle-class teen from a Texas suburb. The chorus of the song then came under fire by a black fraternity, who accused Vanilla Ice of ripping off their fraternal chant ("ice ice baby/ too cold, too cold.")
