In The Spotlight

Haley Johnsen – “Goner”

Born in Portland, this prolific singer and songwriter grew up as a competitive gymnast, which gave her the drive to go outside her comfort zone. This also translated to her songwriting skills and in a span of three years she penned over 200 songs in her parents’ shed. Influenced by powerhouse voices like Grace Potter, Brandi Carlile and Annie Lennox, she debuted with “Feel The Water” in 2015.

Written in a bathtub in a vintage trailer in the midst of an existential crisis, her new single is a soul-searching journey put to music. Laying a dreamy soundscape foundation, it’s the breezy guitars, 70s-touched folky vibes and a perky rhythm that fuse into a sun-drenched groove. And with her honey-dipped vocals coasting the soundwaves, this vivid nostalgic daydream is here to stay.

In The Spotlight

Handsome Jack – “Roll It”

Formed in 2004 and hailing from Lockport, New York, this rock trio gained their name playing a fusion of blues, R&B and garage rock they like to call ‘Boogie Soul’. Consisting of Jamison Passuite, Joey Verdonselli and Bennie Hayes, they started touring with their swaggering 70s-style blues rock sound and shared the stage with Blue Cheer and The J. Geils Band. They debuted with “Time Will Tell” in 2011.

Dedicated to their old rust bucket of a tour van, their new single takes slight whimsical lyrics and wraps them in a titillating groove. Taken from their upcoming album “Get Humble”, expected to drop on October 29th, they gave it a rock-dipped, rich, classic soul vibe. With bright, vintage guitars, 60s-inspired rhythm and powerful, soul-infused vocals, this is a standout tune where old and new meets.
