    You may not know her face yet, but you definitely know her work. Bonnie McKee is a singer and songwriter who has co-written songs for an array of A-list pop stars, including Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Ke$ha, Carly Rae Jepsen, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson, and Taio Cruz, racking up eight No. 1 singles, including Perry’s “Teenage Dream” and “California Gurls,” Spears’ “Hold It Against Me,” and Cruz’s “Dynamite” — in the process. Now the girl whom Rolling Stone called 2011’s “Best Secret Weapon” is ready to step out as an artist in her own right with her single “American Girl,” an anthemic pop tune that showcases her powerhouse voice, knack for big choruses, and nostalgia-tinged lyrical point of view.

  • Matt White
    • By MusicLounge
    Born in New Jersey, raised in New York City, went to college in Wisconsin and is currently splitting his time between Los Angeles and NYC when he’s not on the road, Matt White has done and seen quite a bit. His first love was the piano, which he started to play at just three years old. Initially focusing on classical music and opera until he was a teenager, he then moved toward finding his voice and more mainstream influences. Like a boy leaving his high school sweetheart behind, he went away to college and cheated on the piano with the guitar, only because a piano was not readily available. Moving back to NYC, he continued his affair with the guitar, busking on street corners and in Washington Square Park to make ends meet. Eventually, the NYC music scene provided him a place for both his lovers at venues such as Joe’s Pub and The Living Room, where he watched his audience grow significantly with each performance.

  • Jamestown Revival
    • By MusicLounge
    At the heart of Jamestown Revival is a friendship that spans over a decade. Jonathan Clay and Zach Chance grew up together in the small Texas town of Magnolia. From a young age, they shared a love for music as well as the outdoors. About an hour north of Magnolia TX, there was some old family land with a dilapidated ranch house where they spent the better part of their adolescence exploring the thousand-acre property, and when the sun when down they took to the records of the songwriters and bands that inspired them.

    "This time, I really wanted to do something different," says Darius Rucker. "I went straight from my first album into my second, and it really just picked up where the other one left off. So when we went into the studio on this one, we really wanted to take our time and not even start worrying about a record until we had songs that we felt were the right ones. And when I heard what would become... Read More »
