ISA – “After You”

Born as Isa Tengblad in Stockholm, this 20 year young, Swedish singer and songwriter debuted on the music scene back in 2012 with the single “BOMB”. Inspired by Ariana Grande and Beyoncé, she created a Pop/R&B blend which challenges norms and ideals. As well as writing her own music, she’s a sought after songwriter and started her own independent record label, Licious Music, in 2017.

Taking music back to the bare essentials, her gorgeous new single is a moving, emotional gem. Built on a delicate melody of stunning acoustic piano and stylish strings, her soul-wrenching, passionate vocals show a authentic vulnerability while retaining a vigorous tenacity. Singing about longing, either for someone or for a dream, this is an inspirational marvel of outstanding auditory beauty.

Drew Cole – “Sour Love”

Born in Seattle, but now Los Angeles-based, this multi-talented artist is a singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist. His father introduced him to the guitar at age 11 and he’s been in love with music ever since. He finds inspiration in the music of The Beatles, Gregg Allman and John Mayer. In 2016, he released his debut single “Don’t Follow” and appeared on The Voice earlier this year.

His distinctive soul-infused Pop style truly shines on this impassioned, retro-dipped slice of sweet, satiny soul. The choral handclaps, borrowed from a gospel-like sound and the lustrous rhythm, radiant guitars and charismatic violins add a vintage tinge to this smooth groove and with his lavish, emotive vocals stroking your ears and tugging on your heartstrings, you will love this soulful Shangri-La.
