She also announced her next single, “Little Things,” will be released on March 1st, and that she has plans to release a full album on May 17 th on Hollywood Records and 19 Recordings, an Industrial Media company.

“I’m really excited to release ‘First Aid Kit’ because it feels like it’s authentically me. It’s about finding someone who helps you heal from a broken heart and learning to love again,” explained Maddie. “I love the message of this song, and it feels incredible to release something that I feel such a personal connection to. It’s very heartwarming.”

On upcoming single, “Little Things,” Maddie says: “This is a special song: it was written specifically for me, inspired by my relationship with Caleb.” Maddie began dating fellow Idol contestant, Caleb Lee Hutchinson while filming the show, and shares that he has been a big source of inspiration for her music. “I couldn’t believe how much every word rings true to my relationship and how it feels when we’re apart.

Maddie has accumulated over 13 M streams globally, with a dedicated fan base eager for more. Maddie’s first single post-American Idol, “Going Going Gone,” soared to #3 on the iTunes US Overall chart, #2 on the iTunes US Pop Charts, and peaked at #4 on the Spotify US Viral chart.

Poppe has had a whirlwind year since winning Idol last May. She performed on several high profile television shows and headlined the Idol tour, all the while writing and recording new music. On her upcoming album, Maddie shares: “The process on this album has been a lot of fun. Hollywood Records has been such a blessing to work with- they have given me the reins to make the album that I want to make, and have supported my decisions. I’m really staying true to myself on this album and I’ve gotten to work with a really great team.”

Sheppard’s ‘On My Way’

Multi-platinum selling recording artist Sheppard is back with a brand-new single “On My Way” – available now via your preferred music platform! Cowritten by John Hume (co-writes with Dean Lewis, Sofi Tukker), the anthemic, uplifting song, which was originally penned as a stand-alone single, earned the band a nod to participate in the show which will select Australia’s next representative at Eurovision 2019! “On My Way” is the ultimate love song as singer George Sheppard explains:

“This song is about someone craving the uncontrollable heat and passion they feel when they are with the one they love. It’s about excitedly making their way to reunite with their lover, wherever that may be in the world.”

“On My Way” is the first new music since last summer’s sophomore effort Watching the Sky (June 8, 2018 via Empire of Song/Decca Records/Republic Records) which rocketed to the top of the charts globally, earning them their first #1 on the ARIA Album Chart in their home country of Australia and hitting Top 10 on the US iTunes Pop Charts. Watching the Sky spawned global smash “Coming Home,” which climbed to #1 on the AIRcharts and went double platinum in Australia while taking over radio charts across Europe and Mexico. The song debuted on US television on the TODAY Show and was featured in American Ninja WarriorAmerican Idol, Champions, and Lionsgate’s hit feature length animated film Early Man.

The band exploded onto the global stage with the massive success of 2015’s “Geronimo” – the RIAA Certified Double Platinum lead single from the band’s debut album Bombs Away. The song rose all the way to #53 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, Top 5 at AAA and landed them on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Today Show, and The Talk. Sheppard have also become mainstays on the festival circuit across the globe, performing at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Summer Sonic, Rock in Rio, Billboard’s Hot 100 Festival, and many more to date.

Sheppard will perform “On My Way” at Eurovision – Australia Decides alongside Australia’s top talents to battle it out to become Australia’s 2019 Eurovision entry on February 9th as they continue their run as Australia’s royal family of pop.

Jessica Meuse Debuts New Music At MyMusicRX Bedstock Festival

Country artist and American Idol Top 4 Finalist, Jessica Meuse, will debut her new music video entitled, “Love Her Better,” at MyMusicRx’s Bedstock Festival on Giving Tuesday (November 28th). The song Meuse has written is part of her upcoming 2018 full-length debut album release on Warrior Records and the video will be accessible from Bedstock.com and Meuse’s social pages.

“I’m very grateful to be involved with Children’s Cancer Association’s MyMusicRX for Bedstock Festival 2017,” said Jessica. “I chose to perform ‘Love Her Better’ specifically for the fest and I thought it would be fun for the kids if I filmed my video on a remote tropical island, during my recent performances in the Maldives. Bedstock 2017 will be the first place for people to tune in to this new, unreleased track from my upcoming album, while supporting a great cause!”

Bedstock is a one-of-a-kind, life-changing music festival, where artists play from bed for sick kids that are stuck in theirs. It helps raise funds and awareness for MyMusicRx, an organization that delivers the healing power of music to hospitalized kids across the country. This is Year 4 of Bedstock, and it’s Bigger and Bedder than ever.

“We are honored Jessica has chosen Bedstock as the platform to debut her latest music,” said Regina Ellis, Founder and Chief Joy Officer at Children’s Cancer Association. “The compassion and generosity of the artists who participate in Bedstock is what continues to drive the success of this festival and make a difference right now in the lives of children and teens in the fight of their lives against cancer and other devastating diagnoses.”

Jessica Meuse is a American Idol Top 4 Finalist whose talents recently earned her a management deal with LA Group Management and a Warrior Records album deal. Besides working with Children’s Cancer Association, Meuse dedicates personal time to many worthwhile causes, including speaking out to raise awareness about domestic violence abuse and cyberbullying. Additionally, on Saturday, December 9th, Jessica has been asked by St. Jude Children’s Hospital to sing the National Anthem at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida, to kick off their annual Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer.

IDOL MALDIVES BIRTHDAY BASH

Country singer/songwriter Jessica Meuse, a American Idol Top 4 Finalist, will be at Kurumba Resort in Maldives celebrating her “Birthday In Paradise” with four live performances, October 19-22, 2017.

“I’m completely ecstatic to be performing my first set of shows outside the USA at Kurumba Resort in the Maldives,” expressed the American Idol alum. “I have friends who have visited this magical place and it’s always been a dream of mine to travel there. I’m excited to see what future opportunities, as well as what inspiration and wild experiences will come about!”

Meuse’s tenure on American Idol yielded 8 singles released by the franchise, which were then followed by 2 independent singles. Currently, Jessica is working with manager Jim Ervin completing her debut full-length album at Capitol Studios, which will be released first quarter 2018 on Warrior Records/eOne. She has also been nominated as Top 5 Female Vocalist Of The Year in the 2017 Texas Country Music Awards, which will be hosted by Mark Chesnutt in a live ceremony on September 28 in Carthage, Texas.

Besides being a touring artist, Jessica also dedicates time to raising Domestic Violence awareness and works with Children’s Cancer Association’s MyMusicRX. She recently visited Children’s Hospital Los Angeles to perform for the kids and will also be participating in CCA’s upcoming Bedstock Fest on November 28th.
