Noah Kahan to Debut Busyhead

NOAH KAHAN ANNOUNCES DEBUT ALBUM BUSYHEAD OUT JUNE 14TH

TO EMBARK ON NORTH AMERICAN HEADLINING TOUR THIS FALL

NEW SINGLE “MESS” OUT NOW

Today, Noah Kahan announces his highly anticipated debut album, Busyhead, will be released this summer on June 14th. In celebration of the release, Noah will be heading out on The Busyhead Tour across North America this fall, returning to headline larger venues coming off of a 2018 sold out tour. The tour kicks off at Granada Theater in Dallas on September 19th and includes dates in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, Nashville, San Francisco and more. See the full list of dates below. Album pre-order and ticket on-sale will be available this Friday, April 12th at 10AM local time here.

Noah recently released the video for “Mess,” the lead single off Busyhead. Watch it HERE! The song already has over 2 million Spotify streams to date, received critical praise from Billboard, NYLON, Idolator, Popdust, EARMILK, Baeble, Ones To Watch and more, and continues to climb the Triple A Radio Chart. Fresh off the road with James Bay on his North American tour and Leon Bridges on his Australian tour, Noah is currently touring with Dean Lewis in Europe and the U.K. See the list of upcoming dates below.

In two shorty years, music quite literally carried 22-year-old singer, songwriter and artist Noah Kahan around the world —a long way from his native Strafford, VT (pop. 1,045) and the 133-acre tree farm where he resides. On the trip, the alternative troubadour notched an international hit in the form of Hurt Somebody,” which racked up over 200 million global streams to date and went triple platinum in Australia and gold in Canada, Sweden, Norway, Netherlands, Switzerland and New Zealand. The song also peaked at #1 on the Top 40 radio charts in Australia for three weeks, making it the third most played song on the Australian airwaves in all of 2018 where Noah has become one of the most buzzworthy new acts. Meanwhile, his singles “Young Blood” and “False Confidence” also racked up millions of streams, as he sold out headline tours in North America, Europe, and the U.K. and hit the road with artists like George Ezra and Leon Bridges. Not to mention, he has garnered critical acclaim from Billboard, Stereogum, NYLON, Clash, Idolator, and more. In the midst of this whirlwind, Noah assembled his upcoming full-length debut album, Busyhead. The first single “Mess” illuminates his marked growth as a songwriter and storyteller by way of its biting lyrics and undeniable sing-a-long, underscoring a heartwarming and often hilarious portrait of hometown longing. Busyhead is set for release on June 14th.

Noah Kahan New Single

NOAH KAHAN UNVEILS VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “MESS”

TOURING WITH JAMES BAY IN NORTH AMERICA THROUGH MARCH AND WITH DEAN LEWIS IN EUROPE AND THE U.K. IN APRIL

WATCH HERE

Today, Noah Kahan releases the video for his new single, “Mess.” Watch it HERE! Produced by Kahan’s frequent collaborator Joel Little (Lorde, Khalid), the song has already received praise from Billboard, NYLON, Idolator, EARMILK, Baeble, Ones To Watch and more.

Of the inspiration behind the video, Noah says, “I initially called ‘Mess’ ‘Feed the Dogs’ because my pups were a huge part of the inspiration for the tune. When I was in Vermont after high school, they were my only company during what was a lonesome time. With that in mind, I knew I had to make the music video be centered around dogs. Despite my dogs’ jealousy, we got 11 trained professional dogs (who were way more famous than me) for the shoot in LA and shot a video I really loved. Hope you guys like it too!”

“Mess” follows the global success of Kahan’s breakout singles, “Hurt Somebody” and “False Confidence.” With over 200 million global streams to date, “Hurt Somebody” is triple platinum in Australia and gold in Canada, Sweden, Norway, Netherlands, Switzerland and New Zealand; and it peaked at #1 on the Top 40 radio charts in Australia for three weeks, making it the third most played song on the Australian airwaves in all of 2018 where Noah has become one of the most buzzworthy new acts. “False Confidence” continues to grow with over 16 million streams to date and peaked in the top 5 at Triple A radio in the U.S.

Noah Kahan is currently on the road with James Bay this month on his North American tour. He will also be joining Dean Lewis on his headline tour in Europe and the U.K. in April. See the full list of upcoming dates below. Tickets are available here

Noah Kahan “Mess”

Today, Noah Kahan debuts his new single, “Mess,” from his highly anticipated debut album set for release this spring. Listen to “Mess” HERE!

Produced by Kahan’s frequent collaborator Joel Little (Lorde, Khalid), Noah wrote “Mess” last fall while he was home in Vermont in between sold out tours. Of the song, Noah explains, “My life has taken a 180° turn. I’m on a very different path than what I thought I would do. I get nostalgic for the locale where I grew up because the scenery is so beautiful. Going from this to bigger cities and tours is crazy for me. The truth is—regardless of where I’ve gone—my parents still yell at me to pick up the dogs’ shit when I’m back home.”

 He continues, “‘Mess’ is a song I wrote during a very overwhelming and generally sad time in my life. Being able to work on this song and bring these feelings to light was a lifeline for me, and I hope it provides you with similar comfort.”

 “Mess” follows the global success of Kahan’s breakout singles, “Hurt Somebody” and “False Confidence.” With over 200 million global streams to date, “Hurt Somebody” is triple platinum in Australia and gold in Canada, Sweden, Norway, Netherlands, Switzerland and New Zealand; and it peaked at #1 on the Top 40 radio charts in Australia for three weeks, making it the third most played song on the Australian airwaves in all of 2018 where Noah has become one of the most buzzworthy new acts. “False Confidence” continues to grow with over 15 million streams to date and is currently sitting in the top 5 at Triple A radio in the U.S.

 Noah Kahan will be hitting the road with James Bay this month on his North American tour, performing at New York’s iconic Beacon Theatre for two nights on March 12 and 13 and at Los Angeles’ The Wiltern on March 25. He will also be joining Dean Lewis on his headline tour in Europe and the U.K. in April. See the full list of upcoming dates below. Tickets are available now at www.NoahKahan.com/tour.

Monica Martin Releases New Single

MONICA MARTIN RELEASES NEW SINGLE “PATIENT”

LISTEN HERE

“(Monica Martin) examines the cruelty of denial and staying in a broken relationship.” – NPR

[Of “Thoughtless”] “a low-key and ultra-cool track” – NYLON

“She is definitely One To Watch.” – Idolator

“Martin is both evocative and sinfully infectious to listen to.” – EARMILK

“[“Cruel” is] a promising first solo step for an already established indie-pop voice.” – Ones To Watch

Today, Chicago-born and Los Angeles-based songstress Monica Martin releases her new single “Patient” via Republic Records.

Get it HERE!

“Patient” exclusively premiered on Consequence of Sound, who said, “The track finds the former PHOX frontwoman trying to find strength in pushing a loved one away while pop piano melodies sadly sway under constantly building alt-folk orchestration.” The song, produced by Jon Green (James Bay, Paloma Faith) and featuring noteworthy musician Ian Fitchuk (producer of Kacey Musgraves’ Grammy Award-winning album Golden Hour), marries acoustic guitars and steady beats. Blurring the lines between pop, alternative and folk, the lyrics evoke an emotional plea, “You’re going to have to be patient with me.” “Patient” follows her previously released singles “Thoughtless” and “Cruel.”

Of the track Monica Martin notes, “We all are on respective journeys to unpack mental baggage and needing to create that space while in a relationship can be really tough…especially when someone wants to feel needed, you can be perpetually soothed, and while that feels great and all, that limits you from forging healthy mental pathways for yourself. ‘Patient’ is a song asking for space; I want to be my best so my relationship isn’t about co-dependence.”

Kicking off what promises to be a breakout year, Monica continues to attract widespread critical praise. The 405 recently praised her “songwriting that’s undeniably truthful,” meanwhile, Flaunt claimed, “Her bewitched alto resonance sets a mood while lyrics document her inner confusions from past and present relationships.”

Monica Martin has bewitched listeners everywhere with a quirky and quixotic take on pop since 2012. She fronted PHOX as the group became an indie phenomenon whose resume included prime festival spots and late-night television appearances. She joined forces with Jeremy Larson of Violents in 2017 to release Awake And Pretty Much Sober and relocated to Los Angeles to begin work on her own project later that year. She has attracted acclaim from NPR, The New York Times, Consequence of Sound and more. Her debut single, “Cruel,” produced by notable British producer Eg White (Adele, Florence & The Machine, Sam Smith), set the stage for more music in 2019.

Tori Kelly Sets Record With New Project Hiding Place

Hiding Place & Grammy-nominated artist Tori Kelly’s new passion project has set the record for the most first-week streams ever for a gospel album.

The collection, which was produced by 12-time GRAMMY Award winner Kirk Franklin, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart and had the highest-selling week of any 2018 gospel album.

Hiding Place also topped Billboard’s Gospel Streaming Songs and Gospel Digital Song Sales charts plus the Apple Music Christian genre chart.

Tori was joined by Kirk Franklin and a choir last night when she performed the lead single Never Alone on The Late Show with James Corden. View their performance here! She and Franklin will also perform at the Annual GMA Dove Awards, which will be held October 16th in Nashville and air on TBN on Sunday, Oct. 21.

Tickets are on sale now at www.torikellymusic.com for Tori’s Hiding Place tour, which will kick off on Oct. 18 with a sold out concert at The Tabernacle in Atlanta, GA. The headline run includes shows at Warner Theatre in Washington DC (Oct. 28), Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium (Nov. 8), New York City’s Riverside Church (Oct. 30) plus two sold-out nights at the Cathedral Sanctuary at Immanuel Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles (Nov. 16 & 17). See below for itinerary.

Idolator observed, there was always the sneaking suspicion that the 25-year old’s voice could soar even higher, that she could open near heart even wider. That promise finally comes to fruition on Hiding Place. Kelly’s talent transcends genres.

Tori Kelly wants her new album Hiding Place to be a light in the dark for fans,” says PEOPLE magazine

Half of the songs on Hiding Place were penned by Franklin alone while the remaining tracks came from a collaboration between the two artists the first time that Franklin had ever co-written in his decades long career. The collection also features guest artists Lecrae, Johnathon McReynolds, and The Hamiltones.

Tori’s 2015 debut album Unbreakable Smile landed her on Artist to Watch–lists from the likes of Rolling Stone. It entered the Billboard 200 at No. 2 and contained the Gold-certified singles Nobody Love, Should’ve Been Us, and Hollow.

Unbreakable Smile has racked up more than one billion cumulative streams worldwide and sold 1.3 million adjusted albums. Following its release, Tori was nominated for a GRAMMY in the Best New Artist category and received the Billboard Women in Music Breakthrough Artist award.

DREAMS x SILENCE

Highly danceable, super-sticky, deceptively simple blend of electrified pop” – LA Weekly

 

No One Defeats Us’ funky dance-rock groove” – Stereogum

 

Booming electro-anthem” – Idolator

 

Following their explosive debut song “No One Defeats Us,” DREAMS have dropped their new track “Silence” today via Astralwerks. On the day of their first ever live performance at Coachella, “Silence” reveals a darker side and pulse to DREAMS, led by the brooding vocals of Daniel Johns. The duo also shares a striking video for the track, which can be viewed HERE.

 

Purchase or Stream “Silence” HERE.

 

A much-anticipated debut live set at Coachella this weekend promises high drama and a truly unmissable performance. The only band ever to be booked for the festival before releasing any music, the duo is the highest-billed Australian band. DREAMS will perform tonight at 8:40pm on the Mojave Stage. The duo will also perform next Friday, April 20. Fans can view their performance via the live stream on the Official Coachella YouTube Channel.

 

“Silence’ is a song which came to us after the Charlottesville riots. It broke our hearts to see the violence and hatred that occurred. We wanted this song to elevate the people, let their voices be heard, inspire them with courage and bravery.” Luke Steele (aka Miracle) says of the track. Daniel Johns (aka Dr Dreams), says “The live version is out of this world and we cannot wait to debut it at Coachella. »

 

DREAMS is the realization of a long-time friendship and musical kinship between these two iconic Australian artists. Daniel Johns is best known as the front man of Silverchair whilst the enigmatic Luke Steele fronts Empire of The Sun and The Sleepy Jackson. The artists first met in 2004 when Luke’s band The Sleepy Jackson supported Silverchair on their sold-out Diorama tour.

 

With over ten million albums sold worldwide and an undefeatable twenty-nine ARIA Awards won between both of their respective acts, the pedigree of Daniel and Luke’s new collaboration is unquestionable.

 

Since Silverchair’s debut release “Tomorrow” in 1994, Daniel has taken home a record twenty-one statues, the most of any Australian artist in ARIA history. Daniel has also won APRA Songwriter of the Year three times, and impressively, Silverchair is the only Australian act to have all of their studio albums, five in total, debut at #1 on the ARIA chart.

 

Sweeping the ARIAs clean in 2008 was Luke Steele’s Empire of the Sun, taking home gongs for Best Album, Best Single, Best Group and Best Pop Release. With a total of eight ARIAs and two APRA song writing awards to date, Empire of the Sun has gone from strength to strength internationally, including a spectacular sold out performance at Hollywood Bowl in 2015, in front of an audience of 17,000 US fans.
