“a pop power duo” – PAPER Magazine

Singers, songwriters and producers Jeremy Zucker and Chelsea Cutler are surprising their fans with an extended play titled brent, releasing on May 3rd. Their new single, “you were good to me,” is out now—watch the video HERE!

In just three days, “you were good to me” amassed more than one million Spotify streams and is currently featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday, It’s A Hit and Pop Rising playlists. brent was written and recorded by Zucker and Cutler in a remote cabin in upstate Connecticut last December. Read their letter to their fans announcing brent HERE!

When Jeremy Zucker and Chelsea Cutler joined forces for “you were good to me,” it was much more than two rising stars combining their natural-born talents; it was two friends sharing their personal conversations (set to music) with the rest of the world. Over the past few years, Zucker has galvanized a dedicated fan base with his early independently-released EPs and continued with his breakout singles “talk is overrated” ft. blackbear in 2017 and “all the kids are depressed” in 2018. He’s continued his upward mobility by outdoing himself with “comethru,” which has reached a staggering 80 million Spotify streams and 35 million video views. Meanwhile, Cutler has become a force, starting with a series of covers on Soundcloud that gave way to her own self-written and self-produced work, like 2017’s “Your Shirt,” which cracked the Spotify charts with over 62 million streams, and her two-part Sleeping With Roses mixtape series in 2018. Both artists have been paving the way in their respective lanes; however, their union was serendipitous, happening in 2016 at a college neither of them attended: The University of Connecticut. Fast forward three years and two signings with Republic Records, there was no better time to make music together. Returning to a cabin in Connecticut where they first collaborated on their duet single “better off,” Zucker and Cutler wrote and recorded “you were good to me,” a reflective piece on lost love.

SG Lewis at Coachella

By Michelle Pisnoy × Vaughn Lowery

Electro artist SG Lewis had quite the weekend at Coachella.

As of late, 360 Magazine interviewed the 24-year-old British producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He spoke to us about performing Weekend 1 and was ecstatic that the Mojave tent was at capacity during his performance.

In 2016, Lewis performed at Coachella and was excited to see the upgraded platforms. “The Yuma tent has really quadrupled in size,” he states. “I played a DJ set at the Yuma Tent in 2016, and now it’s like a full-blown Berlin club in there.”

SG Lewis just released his second song with Clairo, “Throwaway,” which now boasts 5 million+ streams on Spotify. “She is one of my favorite people to work with and a genuine friend of mine,” Lewis recites. “The second song wasn’t premeditated. We were just in the studio and ‘Throwaway’ happened naturally and it fit perfectly into Dawn.”

The following single collaboration is set to feature RUEL. “RUEL is a 17-year-old Australian guy who is hugely talented,” SG says. “He has a really soulful voice,” he added.

For the first time, Lewis played the new track “Flame” for Weekend 2 concertgoers.

Yung Fume Releases New Single

Today, Payday Records’ South London rapper Yung Fume releases his latest single “Again,” following the release of his last EP Too Much Wave 2 which dropped in August.

“Again” catches the listener’s ear immediately with an ethereal and echoey choral sound in the background, complimented with stand-out deep bass punches. Fume’s flow highlights the intensity of the instrumentals, opening with the line, “I just made some profit, it’s logic, double again”- the song is an ode to the glory that comes with the guts of the music industry.

Between the bass, fast 808’s, and Fume’s tenacious lyrics, this is the classic baller’s anthem. Titling the song “Again” highlights the importance of consistency in the music game, a proclamation that Fume must keep grinding and getting the bag, time and time again.

“It’s about doing something and being able to do it again,” Fume says about the track, “That’s the only reason I do this!” 

Fume has been grinding nonstop over the past three years releasing projects that include his most recent Payday Records debut EP Level Up in March produced by Atlanta hitmaker Zaytoven along with a trailblazing  iOS arcade-style mobile game called ‘Yung Fume Level Up!’ (soundtracked by two songs from the EP “Zone” and “Life I’m Living”), Too Much Wave 2, Too Much WaveNoughts and CrossesNoughts and Crosses 2 and Noughts and Crosses 3, along with his crossover rap/pop banger “Watch me Flex” being remixed by both Tinie Tempah and Wizkid. He recently went viral with an in-studio clip laying down a new track with Chicago rapper, Lil Durk. Also headlining London’s O2 Academy, and major festival performances at Wireless Festival and Shard Fest, he continues to make big strides in the industry as the years progress.

100 Years of Chevy Trucks

Guests celebrated 100 Years of Chevy Trucks at the Boots On Stage 3rd Annual Shindig, In The Desert Presented by Chevrolet. Celebs such as Olivia Culpo, Kellan Lutz, Audrina Patridge, and Ryan Cabrera were spotted enjoying live performances by country music star Tyler Rich and Dee Jay Silver, one of the biggest dj-producers in country music.

VIP guests  took a break from the music for a little adrenaline rush as they experienced an off-road obstacle course featuring Chevy’s Colorado ZR2. Professional drivers took guests on an exhilarating trail ride on Chevy’s 17-foot tall “metal mountain” to show off the vehicle’s off-road features. Attendees also enjoyed an authentic southern BBQ, tailgating, games, a mobile denim bar featuring customizable denim festival attire, and much more.

Proving to be a must-have invite during the biggest country festival weekend, other VIP attendees included Vanessa Grimaldi and Becca Tilley.

Boots On Stage, a leader in country music marketing, continues to feature some of the biggest acts in the industry, as well as identify and work with emerging artists. The event partnership between Chevrolet and country music insiders Boots On Stage is another example of the car brand’s long standing relationship with music and entertainment industries.

TYLER JACOB

East coast born and bred, Tyler Jacob is a singer/songwriter who got his start in the industry after being discovered singing on the trains of NYC.

At the age of 5 years old, Tyler Jacob started singing and performing in school plays. Tyler says that “I’ve always wanted to sing. It was a natural thing for me.” His family recalls little Tyler putting on shows in the family living room.

“I don’t come from a family of singers. I’m the only one.” 

But it wasn’t until his freshmen year in high school did he realize others thought he had a gift, when he was accidentally placed in a choir class. “The choir teacher asked me to sing, so she could classify my voice.” The rest is history. After the choir teacher heard Tyler’s voice, she had him transferred to Creative Arts High School (CAHS) in Camden, New Jersey.

Tyler’s passion to sing, write and perform his own music, in English and Spanish, pushed him after he graduated from CAHS to move to the big Apple to pursue his singing career. Since then he has gone on to win numerous talent shows , performed on many stages across the US, opened up for Grammy Award winner, Brandy Norwood, and logged studio time with Carvin & Ivan (Chris Brown, Musiq Soulchild, Mario), and Andrea Martin (Leona Lewis, Monica, Mary J. Blige).  

Tyler credits artists like Brandy, Eryka Badu, Lauryn Hill, Aaliyah, Jon B, Marc Anthony, Tank, Maxwell, as some of his influences.
