ABOUT DAVE EAST:
Praised for his lyricism and raw storytelling, and blessed with a loyal New York following, Dave East is one of the most promising rappers on the scene today. Born and raised in Harlem, he was inspired by older generation East Coast rappers ranging from Notorious B.I.G. to Styles P, Jadakiss, Cam’ron, and Big Pun. After a college basketball stint, Dave’s attention gravitated full time to music. Starting in 2010, he released an array of critically acclaimed mixtapes that earned him widespread recognition in the hip-hop community. His seventhmixtape, 2014’s Black Rose caught Nas by surprise, and resulted in Dave’s signing to Nas’ Mass Appeal imprint.  Subsequent mixtapes Hate Me Now (2015) and Kairi Chanel (2016, named for Dave’s daughter), boasted a collective guest list topped by Nas, Styles P, Pusha T, Jadakiss, 2 Chainz, Fabolous, Cam’ron, Beanie Sigel, Rico Love, and The Game, to name just a few.  Kairi Chanel led off with the storytelling visual for “Keisha” followed by “Type Of Time”, with over 12 million combined YouTube views to date. After nabbing a spot in the notorious XXL Freshman Class of 2016, Dave arrived on the Def Jam roster late that year.  He was first heard on “Gold Digger” featuring A-Boogie, from Def Jam’s Direct Deposit Vol. 2 compilation (February 2017). 

Paranoia: A True Story marked Dave’s official Def Jam debut EP in August 2017 (with “Perfect” featuring Chris Brown).  The Paranoia 2 mixtape followed in January 2018.  It was supported by a 10-minute short film, “The Hated,” a gritty drama centering on two childhood friends who get caught up in the street hustle that eventually lands one of them in the Rikers Island lockup.  Dave’s profile was amped considerably on his 23-city cross-country “Paranoia 2 Tour” of the U.S. in January-February 2018.  He then jumped into the ring for Beloved( October 2018), a mixtape collabo with invincible Yonkers MC Styles P.  The project spun off a single, “We Got Everything,” whose video starring both MCs.  Dave segued into headlining his 23-city “Get It How I Live Tour” of the U.S. in November-December 2018.

Arin Ray, Kehlani

Arin Ray × Kehlani

Last week Arin Ray and Kehlani impressed R&B listeners with their tantalizing collaboration “Change”. Now, the pair has teamed up to create a nostalgic and sultry visual to accompany the track. The video’s throwback aesthetic and coloring, beautifully mesh with the song to create a heartfelt nod to classic rhythm and blues. Check out the Miles & AJ directed visual HERE.

Arin is particularly excited about this video, noting in his recent interview with Billboard, “I’ve had some dope videos in the past, but this one, as far as creativity and doing things differently, this is the one.”

It’s this kind of artistic integrity that has allowed Ray to blossom into a full-fledged artist who also writes and produces most of his own material.  In December 2018, the classically trained vocalist released Platinum Fire [Deluxe] and initiated a healthy buzz with back-to-back bangers, “Roses” and “Reckless.”  Ray has since continued to spread the love and grow his audience by touring across the United States.

The single “Change” is now available on all digital retailers via Interscope Records.

EVOLIX

Evolix is a contemporary pop group comprised of two siblings – Alexis and Korina. In 2016, the Boston natives officially began releasing songs under their current stage moniker. Having drawn a significant amount of influence from recording artists like Zedd, Jessie J and Dua Lipa, their original compositions primarily consist of dance-pop as well as EDM.  “Evolix strives to make a global impact where the lives of all are affected in some way by the empowering messages we are trying to promote,” said Korina.

Although both members contribute to Evolix equally, Korina is the principal songwriter of the group. She has built her foundation of lyrical content upon love, empowerment, heartbreak and other life experiences which teenagers face such as depression. The group’s other lead vocalist, Alexis, often provides the aesthetics which enhance her younger sister’s vision. “Because Korina and I are so close, we are able to play to each other’s strengths, and we are able to understand the overall creative vision. I can create a visual that will portray the true underlying message of Korina’s music,” said Alexis.

DECLAN J DONOVAN

22-year old UK singer-songwriter Declan J Donovan’s releases latest song “Vienna.”  “Vienna,” recorded with George Ezra producer Cam Blackwood, captures Donovan’s storytelling knack.  He weaves tales about his friends and family into his songs and loves finding magic in the mundanity of everyday life.  

LISTEN TO “VIENNA” HERE, WATCH THE VIDEO HERE

The first track Declan ever wrote, “Fallen So Young,” written especially for his brother’s wedding, was a huge success when he uploaded it to Soundcloud, getting a million plays within six months. In the wake of that triumph, he self-funded three tours around the UK and Europe, eventually landing a record deal at Epic Records in Germany, where major labels caught word of this unsigned troubadour from England playing to sold-out crowds who knew the words to every song.  He was one of the only unsigned acts to play last year’s BBC Music’s Biggest Weekend, appearing alongside Taylor Swift, Florence + The Machine, Sam Smith and more.

  Following a whirlwind 2018, rising American singer-songwriter and musician Donna Missal dives head first into 2019, making her late night television debut on NBC’s Late Night With Seth Meyers with what’s certain to be a riveting performance of her breakthrough single, “Keep Lying.” Tune in to NBC tonight at 12:35/11:35 central. 

 

The performance comes a little over a month before her announced 2019 headline tour, which kicks off Valentine’s Day (February 14) in Chicago. The 20 date ‘This Time’ Tour, is prom-themed and takes Donna across North America, making stops in St. Louis, New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington, DC, Atlanta, Nashville, Houston, Dallas, Denver, Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles and more before concluding in San Diego on March 30.

 

Donna recently explained the concept of the tour in an Instagram post: “I was homeschooled. I never had a school dance or a picture day or a graduation. THIS TIME TOUR is your invitation to the winter and spring formal I never had. If you had a shitty time in school and want a re-do, or maybe you loved it and want to go back to that feeling, THIS TIME is your time. VIP packages will be available so you can take your very own NEW yearbook photo by Muriel Knudson and be a part of our CLASS OF ‘THIS TIME’ yearbook.”

 

In addition to her North American headline tour, Donna will bring her live show to the UK for the first time, making her London debut January 23 at The Moth Club. For tickets and more information, go to http://www.donnamissal.com. 

 

Having spent much of 2018 on the road, including two special album release shows in LA and New York, an appearance on MTV’s TRL, her debut festival appearance at Austin City Limits and prominent supporting slots opening for King Princess, Bishop Briggs and Sir Sly and Joywave, earning legions of new fans along the way—now Donna Missal is taking the reins, bringing her energetic and fiercely passionate live set to a city near you, in support of her debut album (and tour namesake), This Time.

 

The tour will see Donna Missal playing songs from her debut album, This Time, out now on Harvest Records. The eleven-track album infuses Missal’s timeless, fiery vocals with scorching production by Tim Anderson (Solange, BANKS, Halsey), harkening back to the heyday of classic soul music, all the while creating something fresh and contemporary. Including standout cuts like “Driving,” “Transformer,” “Girl,” “Thrills” and current focus track, “Jupiter,” an impassioned anthem with a driving bassline and massive chorus. Watch Donna deliver the goods in this live version of “Jupiter” HERE, filmed exclusively as part of Vevo’s DSCVR series

 

The album also includes her latest single “Keep Lying,” which has been steadily climbing the charts at Alternative radio. Following Zane Lowe’s premiere of Missal’s original demo version of “Keep Lying” on Beats 1, the song shot to the top of the Spotify Viral and HypeMachine charts.

 

Blending elements of soul, hip-hop and rock & roll, Missal shaped This Time’s sonic landscape partly by laying live recordings down on tape, then sampling those recordings to imbue her songs with a fresh yet timeless energy. Much of that live recording took place at the iconic Different Fur Studios in San Francisco, where she was joined in the studio by Nate Mercereau (Leon Bridges). “I really wanted this album to reference my history of playing in bands,” she  explains. “It’s all these very pure, talented musicians playing together in a room, but then we took that and sampled it and altered in a way that creates something totally new.”

 

With its title taken from a track Missal co-wrote with her frequent collaborator Sharon Van Etten, ‘This Time’ is an uncompromisingly honest look at living entirely on your own terms. “I’ve spent most of my life being hyper-focused on time, which I think is something that a lot of women obsess over,”says Missal. “We’re in such a rush to make things happen, when really we should take the time to figure out what we actually want out of life. And even though it’s so fucking hard to have that kind of patience, I think it’s so important to believe in yourself enough to let things develop in a way that feels right to you.”

 

Throughout the album, Missal crafts her lyrics with the kind of idiosyncratic detail that instantly etches each line onto your heart, exploring self-empowerment on tracks like “Transformer”—a fiercely charged anthem about “having the courage to take what you want from life, without apology,”and on “Thrills,” which sees Missal musing on self-love and sexual confidence, her voice soaring over a gently swaying groove and dreamy guitar tones. “‘Thrills’ is about owning what makes you real,” says Missal. “There is a shift happening in our societal standards of beauty and sexuality, and the more we embrace our flaws the closer we become to effecting real change. I’d love for people to hear the song — and not just women, but anyone who feels disenfranchised— and remember that being sexy and confident comes from self-acceptance.”

 

Elsewhere on This Time, Missal infuses social commentary into songs like “Girl”: a stripped-back yet intricately textured track that unfolds with both gentle playfulness and piercing vulnerability. “I wanted to address this idea that women need to be pinned against each other in order to succeed, or need to point out the flaws in other women just to feel good about themselves,”says Missal. “That kind of thinking has been around forever, and it doesn’t feel like it’s going away—but the more we talk about it, the better it’s going to get.”And on “Driving,” Missal delivers one of the album’s most mesmerizing moments, with her flowing melody, hypnotic rhythms, and ethereal vocals merging with a quiet grandeur that’s simultaneously escapist and inspiring. “‘Driving’ is about being on the precipice of taking control over your life—that feeling of seeing something you want in the distance and making the decision to go for it,”says Missal. “It’s about saying ‘Even if it takes a long time, or I hit some bumps along the way, it’s all okay because I’m the one behind the wheel.’”

 

To date, Donna Missal’s songs have racked up more than 23 MILLION COMBINED STREAMS globally, and now with the release of her debut album ‘This Time’, Missal is excited to provide her fans more of what they love so much about her music. “This isn’t a record about love and loss and relationships,” Missal explains. “It’s about taking chances for yourself, figuring out who you are and really standing behind that. I made a point of putting myself out there as a real person navigating this life at this moment in time, because I want to do whatever I can as an artist to help people feel more confident in navigating their own lives. I’d love for the listener to receive the message that you can take your time to learn and love yourself. That’s been the most important discovery that I want to share with this album.”

 

Donna Missal’s is a voice that comes around only once in a lifetime, a tour not to be missed
