Named after an Italian musical direction meaning with spirit, this seven-piece from the San Francisco Bay area plays a fresh blend of soul, psych-rock and R&B. They started playing open mics in 2009 and have since traveled the world with their electric live show. Centered around Sarah Clarke’sEtta James and Janis Joplin-influenced vocal power, they debuted with “Never Be The Same” in 2014.
Highlighting the importance of self-care in a busy world filled with people who judge you on everything you do, their new single wraps their genuine lyrics in a full-bodied soulful funk experience. Taken from their upcoming EP “Seasons”, expected on September 16th, they fuse rich disco violins, funky horns and a classic soul vibe into a bubbly throwback groove that’s ready for the dance floor.
Born as Madara Ieva Tumoviča, this Latvian singer and songwriter started singing at 4 years young. She joined vocal studio Rasa and spent 10 years performing on both large and small stages, honing her craft. At 15 she began singing solo and writing her first songs. Now studying at the renowned modern music institute BIMM in London, she debuted her jazzy sound on “This Moment” in 2019.
Singing about cherishing moments of happiness by finding joy in the little things in life, her new single breathes a sense of positivity. Starting with a smooth jazz segment of an acoustic guitar and her enchanting vocals, she soon adds a bouncy funk beat, retro synths and some sonic sunshine. And with an insatiable buoyancy, this feel-good groove sounds optimistic, joyous and filled with fun.
