RNW Garments

RNW Garments is a Los Angeles based independent street wear label founded in 2011. The brand philosophy “Since Birth” is born out of their tagline NO GUTS, NO GLORY. Hailing from South Central LA, designer Raphael Na’te Walton has organically grown RNW Garments to be a brand for people of all walks of life no matter their ancestry or background.

For all the old and young souls still chasing their glory, to those who have achieved the greatest achievements, but strive for more; RNW Garments embody the hustler spirit and serves as a symbol of that fire within all of us to chase our own glory.

RNW currently offers traditional street wear pieces such as tees, hoodies, jackets and headwear but will soon transition into cut and sew production which will allow founder Raphael Na’te Walton for the opportunity to bring the brand to new heights.

Jesse Palter-The Paper Trail

Detroit born, LA based, prolific singer/songwriter Jesse Palter releases debut EP The Paper Trail October 22 on Artistry Music, featuring five tracks of aggressive, piano-pounding pop/rock in the vein of Carole King, Sarah McLachlan and Sara Bareilles. The first single going to radio is “Heavy Is The Crown,” an edgy, incisive pop-rocker examining narcisscism and victim-hood at is best.  Check it out here.

Comments Palter: “All of these songs are paving the way towards establishing myself as an artist and songwriter. My approach throughout this project was to find a way to capture a full snapshot of my life and what I’ve been going through. This is the beginning of what I hope will be a long, fulfilling journey.”

Palter, who launched her career in Detroit and Chicago before moving to Los Angeles to focus on her development as a pop artist, was supported in her sound and overall vision by producer Doug Petty, a veteran keyboardist who has worked with Celine Dion, Britney Spears, Nick Lachey and Lisa Loeb, among others. Petty kept the integrity of Palter’s songs from demo stage through the various layers and textures brought forth to compliment her unique artistry. A high caliber of studio musicians played on the project including bassists Tim Lefebvre and Alex Al and drummers Matt Chamberlain and Aaron Sterling.

With The Paper Trail EP, Palter has committed herself to the discipline of perfecting the craft of songwriting. She focused on strengthening her creative muscles to discover what melodies, lyrics and chord changes work best, allowing herself to be vulnerable, brave and brutally honest at the same time. The songs are autobiographical, representing her life and what’s she’s been through.

Palter launched her jazz career as a teenager, performing oboe and trumpet in the school jazz band. She connected with singer/songwriter Andrew Gold (“Thank You For Being A Friend”), who brought her to Nashville to work on original material and record a demo, which generated interest with several major labels. At 15, she began working with the Grammy-winning production team the Bass Brothers (Eminem). Her skill for improvisational singing and a developing passion for legendary jazz vocalists, led to her shift towards jazz. She studied at the University Of Michigan as a jazz and contemplative studies major.

Her eclectic musical upbringing includes exposure to a wide array of music that inspired her to deeply respect the art of great songs and songwriters, from Carole King and Joni Mitchell, to Prince, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and The Beatles. Music and singing was always in her blood. Her grandmother, Doris Raynor, was once an opera prodigy in NY.

In early 2019, Artistry Music will follow up The Paper Trail EP with the single “Sever The Ties” and a full-length debut album.

Rock House Sliders

By Krishan Narsinghani x Vaughn Lowery x McCellies Mason

As of late, Rock House Sliders Hollywood [RHSH] opened its doors to the American market and 360 Magazine had the grand opportunity to attend the soft opening. The restaurant is located at 7950 Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. Parking is offered underneath the property until 9:00pm with validation.

RHSH originates from Kuwait, an Arab country on the Persian Gulf. Currently, the chain possesses ten locations within the Middle East. The company plans to expand to Santa Monica and Downtown Los Angeles. In the near future, they will privately deliver fresh hot food until 3:00am.

Upon entry, guests are embraced by friendly staff and instantly mesmorized by modern ambiance – open concept with floor-to-ceiling windows and white walls. The furniture is ergonomically trendy and transforms the venue from traditional dine-in to a pet friendly hotspot. The menu was formulated by a consultant chef serving Angus beef and grass-fed cow alongside of vegan options.

The restaurant serves six mouth-watering 2oz juicy burgers. Listed include: Original Rocker, Original Chicken, Spicy Chicken, Boston Mushroom, Chipotle BBQ Ranch and Kick My Boss. Prices vary from $2.89 to $3.89 and are coupled with tantalizing sides of french fries (w/o cheese), hand breaded onion rings, hand breaded buffalo tenders and cheddar tots. The Original Crispy Chicken Sandwich is perfectly crafted for a savory and succulent bite.

The ‘Messy Fries’ (reminscent of tangy nachos at one of your favorite cantinas) was the 360 team’s personal favorite – topped with relish, jalapeños, cheddar cheese, thousand island and beef bacon bits. All sides perfectly pair with their in-house made sauces. For dessert, cool off with some of their signature Black Ice Cream or one of their delicious all-natural milkshakes.

Jessica Markowski

Jessica Markowski is a model and digital influencer with over 175,000 followers on Instagram. Although she was born in Poland, Jessica is native New Yorker living the ‘American Dream’ as a full-time Instagramer and has shared her social media tips with various A-list publications. This time with 360!


How to start


I think it is first important for you to understand your niche. You have to have a core understanding of who you are, what to represent and what can differentiate you from everyone else. I think from you know your values, you can create Instagram into a business that can hopefully lead to becoming full-time.


How to know what is my field 


I think that ties a lot back to knowing yourself. Know your passions, your hobbies, your line of work, and know what it is that YOU are good at. If you are an amazing photographer, show that. If you are good at cooking, show that!  I think you just have to figure out what is special about you that you would want the world to admire and know you for.


How to get followers


I think gaining a following is different per individual. But here are a few things I think are a good place to start:


1. Use the right hashtags. Hashtags are a great way to introduce your platform to people who have not seen your account in the first place. It increases the number of eyes on your page.


2. Create a good visual. I think the photographs would be high-level quality, portray a particular emotion. I think those of main reasons why we are compelled to follow certain people in the first place.


3. Post at a particular time. From doing this for a period of time, I have a home to realize what time of day my audience is most engaged and most likely to like my photo.


How to influence others


Here are my top 4 values I kept with me in hopes of becoming influential: 


1. Be very honest about your emotions and own them. 


2. Show you are glad for others.


3. Be strong for others.


4. Choose to be happy.


How to maintain 


I think it certainly is important to know and connect with your audience. Know who they are, what they like. Try to understand what is the core reason why they are following you in the first place. I think about that before every outfit, every partnership I make, every shoot I have. Not only do I want the image to satisfy me, I want to satisfy everyone who is inspired by me.

TEGAN MARIE

Rising country sensation TEGAN MARIE welcomes 2018 with the release of her brand new song – and debut for Warner Music Nashville – “Keep It Lit” on January 19. The track, which showcases her acclaimed vocal chops, will initially be available for digital download and on streaming services. Discovered by girls’ media platform Sweety High, Tegan signed to Warner Music Nashville last summer – 13 at the time – making her the youngest female in 45 years to ink a major Country deal. HuffPost also took notice of the young star’s talent naming her to its 10 Country Artists To Watch In 2018 list while critics and industry executives have given early praise:


“Tegan Marie is primed to be country music’s first Gen Z star… Between her natural talent and the powerhouse team behind her (hitmakers Scott Hendricks and Nathan Chapman, plus Gen Z media gurus Sweety High), don’t be surprised if Tegan Marie is a breakout country star sooner than later.” – HuffPost 

“[Tegan] Marie has the personality and voice of a future star, and she definitely has the always hard-to-define ‘It.’” – USA Today

“‘Tegan is just a thousand-watt light bulb in a dark room. 
When you look for ‘it,’ the definition is Tegan.’” 
 
– Phil Guerini (GM, Radio Disney; VP of Music Strategy, Disney Channel) – Detroit Free Press


Co-written by Tegan, “Keep It Lit” is produced by acclaimed hitmaker and WMN’s VP of A&R, Scott Hendricks (with 70 #1 hits for artists including Blake Shelton and Alan Jackson).
 
“I’ve never signed an artist as young as Tegan,” shared Hendricks. “I hear lots of talented young female singers, but Tegan had that extra ‘thing’ I’ve only seen from stars that have made it to the top. She lights up any room she walks into and her singing was far beyond her years. The first time I recorded her I was ‘jaw dropped’ by her technical abilities and professional approach.”
 
The fun, up-tempo tune, named after an expression popular with Tegan’s generation (Gen Z) “lit,” celebrates happiness, good vibes and lightheartedness. It’s also her rallying cry to inspire people across the country to make 2018 a year of positivity and hopefulness.
 
Tegan is starting 2018 on a high note. During her history-making year she also made waves across the Internet. In 2017 alone, she garnered 100 million video views, had 270 million social engagements and gained two million social followers. Other highlights included making her debut at the Grand Ole Opry and collaborating with Hendricks and multi-GRAMMY winner Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift, Martina McBride).

With a larger-than-life voice, Tegan Marie was discovered when her father uploaded videos of her cover songs to Gen Z girls’ site, Sweety High. Featured as a Radio Disney Country artist, she has since catapulted into the national spotlight with several high-profile media performances and appearances including ABC’s Good Morning America and PBS’ star-studded special Smokey Robinson: The Gershwin Prize and the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards. First releasing the song “Lucky Me” to benefit the children affected by the water crisis in her hometown of Detroit, the momentum continued with her breathtaking rendition of Florida Georgia Line’s #1 hit song, “H.O.L.Y.,” racking up over 17 million views on Facebook alone. To date, Tegan has amassed over 75 million video views and receives over five million engagements online each month. She’s also had a string of coveted opening slots, sharing the stage with artists such as Cam, Hunter Hayes and Kelsea Ballerini. This past spring Tegan appeared at CMA Music Festival on the Radio Disney Country stage and at California’s popular Country music festival Stagecoach to great acclaim. Critics praised her performance with USA Today hailing, “[Tegan] Marie has the personality and the voice of a future star, and she definitely has the always hard-to-define ‘It.’” Last summer she partnered with Pepsi MidAmerica for a six-city tour and is currently working on her debut album for Warner Music Nashville.
