In a pop world in which teen stars crash and burn, it’s so refreshing to watch and listen to Latin Grammy winner Miguelito. The 15 year old has kept his head on straight no matter the success he’s found at such a young age. While most kids are playing video games or getting messy playing ..
There are so many teen stars these days in essentially every genre it seems like a gimmick to mention it in any story about any of them. If I’d write a piece on Lorde, I’d naturally talk about how she’s dominating music and she isn’t even a high school graduate yet. But, why bother? Good ..
Photo and videos by Brian Dalthorp, wearepopstudios.com for A-Sides. It’s unavoidable. Most writers, bloggers, or whatever you want to call us are going to start out a story about Melanie Martinez by mentioning right off the bat that she competed on the third season of NBC’s The Voice. Actually,, any talent who from that singing ..
Ten years ago, Kevin Lyttle had a smash summer hit with the soca ballad “Turn Me On.” I remember that song for oh so many reasons. For starters, it’s not every beat that can get this guy (points to self) moving at bars or clubs. I should never dance. Period. I also remember it well ..
Earlier this month, I attended my 20th year high school reunion and it was a nostalgic blast. It was great to reconnect with so many people, retrace steps on memory lane together, and to catch up on two decades CliffsNotes style. Personally, I was elated to find out that several former classmates had actually purchased ..
You know it’s summer in New York City when rooftop concerts start taking place. That said, I am a bit curious if such gigs take place in the freezing cold months. If they do, it’s pretty messed up to have people get frost bite just to hear their favorite tunes. As I Google that or ..
We might as well start calling Pharrell Williams King Midas. He probably won’t answer anybody who takes that sentence literally, but I’m simply trying to say everything the musician/producer/ageless-vampire touches lately turns into pure gold. The past year has been insane for the artist, who scored a huge hit and Oscar nod for Despicable Me ..
How ironic is it that singer/songwriter Matt Andersen’s new studio album is entitled Weightless. His vocals and lyrics are the antithesis of that. Maybe that’s what he was going for. Either way, the bluesy and soulful singer is a talent you simply cannot ignore. It’s no wonder Maverick Magazine has praised him, and he’s drawn ..
She’s soaring. She’s flying high. She’s about to take flight. Any fowl puns and cliched sentences are justified when referring to singer/songwriter Birdy. The 18-year-old wunderkind is a rising star here in the states, but across the globe, she’s a superstar – scoring platinum and gold hits from her native England to Australia. It’s only ..
Last year, Madi Diaz packed up all of her stuff, left Nashville , and drove to Los Angeles. The singer/songwriter arrived five days later but seemed to become a new person along the way to “la la land.” With The Beatles’ Abbey Road serving as the soundtrack to her trip, she stopped off at the ..
