Before opening up for Kesha at Summerfest this year, these ladies have a sick single to share with the world. The sister pairing is inspired by the synth-pop sounds of the 80s and are on the path to success if the connections they have made thus far are any suggestion of the future.

⭐️ PREMIERE ⭐️ | MwS | "Island"

Sonnet Music

A songwriting duo from Itay that is bringing the soul back into music. Here's what they had to say about their latest release:

"When we left Italy and moved to London to bring our music in this amazing scene, it felt a lot like starting from scratch. We wrote 'Island' shortly after, feeling like two survivors of a shipwreck, trying to build their dreams in an unknown place full of possibilities. This song also happens to be the first we produced and recorded in London - so it's our way of giving back to this city that welcomed us and in which we feel we can best develop our music path."

⭐️ PREMIERE ⭐️ | Justin Fabus | Remedy

Shorefire PR

An emotional album coming from a personal place for this country rocker's big debut. "To me, country is all about songwriting," Fabus exclaims. "It's hard-working. It's blue-collar. That's Pittsburgh in a nutshell. I write what I live. When I sing my songs, I feel them, and I mean them." Tune in and feel the feels.
