In The Spotlight

Michelle Sarah – “My Everything”

Born in Toronto, but raised in Guyana and the United States, the musical foundation of this powerhouse singer and songwriter is rooted in gospel, but ventures into soul and funk. Now based in Denver, she’s performed with a genre-spanning slew of artists, like the Grateful Dead and Parliament-Funkadelic and played New Orleans’ Jazz Fest and Jam Cruise. She debuted with “Truth” earlier this year.

Serving as a crossroads where a myriad of different styles meet and decide to play together in harmony, her new single is an auditory delight. Her gospel roots are present and even jazz puts in an appearance, but it’s her emotive soulfulness that drives this tune. With her mighty vocal acrobatics, a relentless rhythm and blazing brass causing some sonic fireworks, this jam is a sensational experience.

Just Costa – “514”

Born and raised in Montreal, this Canadian brother and sister duo kicked off their careers on separate projects. Juliana was a singer/songwriter, while Jesse fronted rock and metal bands. After joining forces they’ve appeared on La Voix (The Voice) and had a 16-day tour of Italy. With a catchy sound inspired by artists like Bruno Mars and Earth, Wind & Fire, they debuted with “Peachy” earlier this year.

Paying tribute to their beloved hometown, their new single is bursting with energetic life. Named after the area code, they succeeded in instilling the city’s artsiness and joie de vivre into their sonic world. With a vintage vibe radiating from the funky retro pop and soul melodic blend and their varied vocals ranging from soulful to rap, this groovy ode is a feel-good jam with a sunlit electric vitality.
