In The Spotlight

Jamie Mathias – “Better Man”

Hailing from Brighton, this inspirational British singer and songwriter first tasted music when he agreed to be in a band in a drunken haze when he was 16. At 19 he started learning the guitar to aid him in writing his own music. He debuted with “When You Leave” in 2015, which was picked up by BBC Introducing. He released “Love Ourselves” early 2020 about the effects social media has on mental health.

Having grown up surrounded by abuse and addiction, his new single makes a stand by lyrically stating he doesn’t want to follow in his fathers footsteps and make the same mistakes. Giving his deeply personal words extra power, the track starts with the simplicity of an acoustic guitar, adding a punchy beat to the chorus. And with his vibrant voice narrating the honest lyricism, this is a genuine gem.

Late July – “Cloud & Crown”

Also known as Nicole Simone, this Canadian singer and songwriter began her career after a traumatic accident as a child forced her to take vocal lessons. She also became self-taught on several musical instruments. Soon after the release of her EP “Marathon” in 2017, she fell ill with a life-threatening adrenal illness. She also runs Canada’s largest dog adoption and rescue agency called Redemption Paws.

With an intoxicating rhythm and enchanting vocals, her new single sparkles from the start. Driven by a relentless beat and enriched by electronic strings and horns, it joins together the modern with a vintage edge and wraps it in a touch of mystery. And with her polished, emotionally-laden voice adding pure charisma to the bubbly melody, this auditory potion is certain to put you under its spell.
