Inspired by the quiet musings of troublesome love and the path to understanding, the emotionally evocative music of indie-folk singer-songwriter, Kyle Britton, epitomizes storytelling in its truest fashion. Britton’s distinctive sound combines undeniable dark undertones with roving melodies and atmospheric refrains, offering a unique experience for his listeners. On “Villain”, Britton successfully demonstrates diversity as both a lyricist and performer. The dramatic self-confession, encapsulates its audience through the use of defiance against typical folk arrangements, opening us up to our ‘villainous’ side.
Britton's EP is a demonstration of his continuous hard work towards his childhood dream. His natural dedication has led him from ‘fake-playing’ his 7-year-old rendition of Def Leppard’s ‘Pour some sugar on me’ to creating an EP that actively analyzes his decisions in life, whilst convincing us to do the same. The EP, Riddle, is set for release June 10th worldwide.
Jessica Rotter, who has worked with such artists as Sam Smith, Carole King, and Daft Punk, is preparing to release her new full-length project, Plains, April 22nd. Produced by Cazz Brindis and mixed by Scott M. Smith, the eleven track record is stunning, cinematic and most uniquely, organically raw, with the listener being able to hear breath in every track.
One of the tracks from that collection is "Porch Song," a gorgeously scaled back, emotional and inspirational song whose center is Rotter's utterly breathtaking vocal delivery. "Life. Life isn't so hard when you let your head fall on my shoulders./Life. Life isn't so hard when you let your heart fall into mine."
