  • Taylor Swift
    • By MusicLounge
    Taylor Swift is a seven-time GRAMMY winner, and the youngest recipient in history of the music industry’s highest honor, the GRAMMY Award for Album of the Year. She is the best-selling digital music artist of all time, and the only female artist in music history (and just the fourth artist ever) to twice have an album hit the 1 million first-week sales figure (2010’s Speak Now and 2012’s RED). She’s a household name whose insanely catchy yet deeply personal self-penned songs transcend music genres, and a savvy businesswoman who has built a childhood dream into an empire. Read More »

  • Lucy Schwartz

    There is a magical quality to Lucy Schwartz. Her music feels like it is both of this world and otherworldly: intimate and emotional, haunting and enchanting. When Lucy sings, we are instantly drawn in by the sound of her siren voice, and led to a world uniquely her own – one that is light and dark, real and fantastical, weathered in sorrow, and colored in joy.

  • Bootstraps
    • By MusicLounge
    Bootstraps are a testament to the idea that good songs always find their audience. The Los Angeles-based band specializes in heart-on-sleeve rock grandeur; their songs unspool dramatically and determinedly, with the guitars and frontman Jordan Beckett’s world-weary vocals taking the listener on a road trip through a rocky emotional landscape. Even before the release of the band’s debut, Bootstraps’ music has been featured prominently on television and film soundtracks and has garnered them a small but loyal following. Read More »

  • ZZ Ward
    • By MusicLounge
    ZZ Ward has roots in rural Oregon, but her accomplishments have led her far beyond that. She burst onto the scene in early 2012 with an eclectic mixtape, Eleven Roses, setting the tone for her unique blues-meets-hip-hop artistry and the reaction was palpable. ZZ’s debut album, Til The Casket Drops, featuring guests Kendrick Lamar, Fitz of Fitz and the Tantrums, and Freddie Gibbs, further solidified her musical artistry and songwriting prowess.

  • The Wild Feathers
    • By MusicLounge
    Long before it got broken up into a million sub-genres, rock & roll was just rock & roll. Pure, true, organic. Six strings, booming harmonies and the call of the open road. It’s a singularly American tradition that Nashville’s The Wild Feathers are full-force dedicated to not only preserving but also – more importantly - evolving. Their sound melds the five unique voices of Ricky Young, Joel King, Taylor Burns and Preston Wimberly, and Ben Dumas, taking inspiration from across the musical spectrum – country, blues, folk and rock – and spinning it into a roaring web of warm, cosmic melodies with vintage roots and modern tones. The Wild Feathers are a rock band that feels impossibly fresh with the air of having been here all along. Read More »

  • Pickwick
    • By MusicLounge
    To hear Pickwick tell it, their popular Myths 7-inch series was merely a group of rough sketches they’d been developing over the previous two years put to wax. That a CD collection of those “demos” held their hometown Seattle’s Sonic Boom Records #1 sales spot for a period of weeks in 2011 shows those six songs amounted to something more than tossed off basement recordings.

  • Delta Rae
    • By MusicLounge
    Seymour Stein’s office sits way up in the highrises of the Rockefeller Plaza; a corner office, with a beautiful view out over New York City, its surfaces cluttered with all of the memorabilia, awards and accumulated paraphernalia of a lifetime spent in the music industry. It was into this office that the six members of Delta Rae shuffled one day in the summer of 2011. A rather convoluted connection had led them here to this meeting, their first with a major record label, and no one was quite sure how to proceed. “We were very nervous,” recalls Ian Holljes, with perhaps some understatement.
