NINA NESBITT - THE MOMENTS I'M MISSING
Story-telling pop sensation Nina Nesbitt is back with a new single, "The Moments I’m Missing," featuring LA R&B singer Goody Grace. The lyrics eloquently and cleverly discuss Nina’s rapid assent to fame and her feelings of not being able to take it all in at the time. She explained, "It's not about missing as in longing; it's about the moments I'm missing from my brain. It's about recollecting." This girl will be huge!
NOAH KAHAN - FINE
American singer/songwriter Noah Kahan brings us his new single 'Fine'. His folk-infused pop music is in the vein of Ben Howard and Vance Joy. Born in Strafford, Vermont, USA, Noah has been on a serious roll in the last few months music-wise. At just 20 years-old, his passion is palpable in his work. He got his start in the music business through extreme fortune and sudden exposure via the internet, specifically Soundcloud, having been writing songs since he was 8 years-old. New single 'Fine' is a pretty 'fine' debut and defies his youth in its maturity.
RITUAL - BETTER BY NOW
The English quartet RITUAL are tying the strings from their "No Escape Out of Time" project with the third video installment and latest single "Better By Now." The mysterious and elusive London-based band, comprised of Adam Gross, Tommy Baxter, Gerard O'Connell and vocalist Mononoke have already made their mark as songwriting partners for the likes of Dua Lipa.
