Mark Diamond “Hummingbird”

Rising Seattle singer, songwriter and guitarist Mark Diamond unveils his latest song “Hummingbird” today via Stardog Records/Republic Records.

Listen to “Hummingbird” HERE!

“Hummingbird” arrives hot off the heels of Diamond’s debut EP Hummingbird One released in the spring, which Ones To Watch hailed as “an impeccable EP filled with indie-pop perfection.” Hummingbird One features fan-favorite tracks “Steady” and “Road.” Not to mention, Diamond has amassed almost 2 million monthly listeners on Spotify and counting.  

Of “Hummingbird,” Mark says, “This song was the birth of a new version of myself. It was letting a side of me out that I didn’t know was there. I’ll never forget that moment when I started singing the melody. Honestly, I think I just started laughing at first because it felt so freeing and different than anything I’d done before. I think as creatives and as people, we all have multiple versions of ourselves. It’s important to let some of those see the light of day sometimes.”

Stay tuned for more new music from Mark Diamond out this summer!

At 25 years old, Mark Diamond is a Seattle native who grew up listening to Tom Petty, Hootie & The Blowfish, The Beatles, R.E.M and Robbie Williams with his dad in his 1969 Chevy Malibu. Up until recently, Mark, now based in Los Angeles, was living in Seattle and working at a coffee shop for the last four years. He has been hard at work on his upcoming project with his debut song, “Steady,” leading the way. The song is included in a very large arsenal of finished tracks that he completed in 24 days with talented writer and producer Richard Craker, writing and recording in both London and Los Angeles. With his music, Mark wants to make people feel every emotion possible. “I have never had more fun making music in my entire life. Music should make people feel good more than it makes them feel bad. Not necessarily ‘happy’ songs, but songs that make you feel better about life than when you started listening to it.”

 

Guaynaa x Universal Music Latino and Republic Records

The new star on the urbano latino scene, Guaynaa, has been all the rage across the globe after the release of his song, “Rebota,” and has now forged an alliance with Universal Music Latino and Republic Records in a historic “joint venture.”
 
“I’m living my greatest dream come true. Sometimes I wake up and I feel that this is all incredible, I feel so blessed. I’ll be forever grateful to my fans and my team, and now that we’ve started, there’s nothing that can hold us back,” said Guaynaa.
 
“In a short amount of time, Guaynaa  has become one of the most sought over acts in the market. Alongside Republic Records, we will make sure that he becomes one of the biggest global acts of his generation. We welcome Guaynaa and his team to the Universal family.”  Commented Alejandro Duque (Managing Director Universal Music Latino)
 
“Guayna’s talent, ambition and teamwork make him an exceptionally exciting new artist. We look forward to his future with our partners at Universal Music Latino” Stated Avery Lipman (President/Co-Founder Republic Records)
 
“Partnering with Republic/Universal is a great honor for us. This is a unique opportunity, and we strongly believe this is the perfect fit for Guaynaa and his budding career. We are certain this will be a valuable partnership, and a great platform for things to come. Avery and Alejandro have shown our artist and our team a great deal of respect.  We are thankful and thrilled at the prospect of future ventures.” JAK Entertaiment
 
In less than five months, his war cry, “Mamarre, Mamarre,” has made an international impact resulting in millions of followers, millions of views on his YouTube channel and recognition outside of Puerto Rico as one of the indisputable new faces of the genre.

His hit “Rebota” (“Bounce”) is just a taste of what’s to come for Guaynaa, especially with the help of Universal Music Latino, which will be in charge of his Latin market strategy, and Republic Records, responsible for general market strategy.
 
In a remarkably short period of time, his new musical contract is unprecedented yet not unexpected due to his incredible talent and charisma. Guaynaa has an exclusive management and booking team with JAK Entertainment, led by José Juan Torres and Andy Martínez, and both are responsible with the unstoppable growth of this new urban star.

“I’m living my greatest dream come true. Sometimes I wake up and I feel that this is all incredible, I feel so blessed. I’ll be forever grateful to my fans and my team, and now that we’ve started, there’s nothing that can hold us back,” said Guaynaa.
 
To date, “Rebota” has garnered more than 169 million views on YouTube and this new alliance promises to turn Guaynaa into one of the newest icons of Latin music.

Listen to “Cigarettes On Patios”: HERE

He inked a deal with School Boy Records and Republic Records through DVLP’s Transcendent Entertainment imprint after catching the attention of SB Projects with a new name [BabyJake] and a whole new angle to his craft. His debut single “Cigarettes On Patios” is a feel good party cut about living carefree and partying with friends. It’s destined to be the party anthem of the summer, though once the sun sets, BabyJake is geared to mix genres and feelings in a way that’s never been done before. Harnessing his knack for strong songwriting mixed with his love of hip-hop, his music is set to hit hard and you won’t want to miss out.

The Avener “Beautiful” feat. Bipolar Sunshine

The Avener releases new single “Beautiful” feat. Bipolar Sunshine today.  Listen HERE via Casablanca Records.
 
The Avener
 released his debut album The Wanderings of the Avener four years ago and whose standout single “Fade Out Lines” became a worldwide hit (+200m global streams), elevated him to star status of the electro scene. Certified triple platinum in France, platinum and gold in over 10 countries, he was also crowned Best Electro Act at the French Music Awards in 2015. He then went on tour around the world

JP Cooper Releases Sing It With Me

JP Cooper follows the rapid success of debut album ‘Raised Under Grey Skies’ with ‘Sing It With Me’ ft. Astrid S – his first release of 2019.
 
Today, JP unleashes an acoustic version of the single, which is as stunning and exposed as you would imagine, showcasing the true grit of JP’s unmistakable vocal. A deft songwriter and a singer with soulful brilliance, JP Cooper has a rich era-spanning appreciation of music, and an innate need to turn life experiences into narrative.
 
Never shy of working with other artists, ‘Sing It With Me,’ is the most joyous of collaborations. With voices that meld together into one, the harmonies complement each other in all the right ways. Slowly adding layers, the track begins with the soulful vocals of Cooper and eventually builds up to an explosive chorus that commands the attention of any room. The perfect soundtrack for the dance floor or a day on the beach, ‘Sing It With Me’ can translate to any occasion. With a driving beat and passionate vocals, the track has an infectious energy that leaves listeners captivated by the duo. 
 
On the new release JP adds:
 “I’m pretty sure that the reason most guys pick up a guitar and write a song for the first time, it’s usually down to a girl. ‘Sing It With Me’ is a song about just that. It’s the idea of writing a song for somebody that you didn’t quite have the courage to simply say hi to. 
It’s a romanticised version of that I guess, only this time the guy gets the girl (for me in reality I’d likely record it 50 times only to decide it’s terrible and scrap it). I wanted to feature an artist with an incredibly sweet voice and Astrid S fit the bill perfectly. I was so excited to hear her on the track and she definitely delivered. I tried my best to write a chorus that was almost as infectious as ‘Baby Shark’ but very quickly realised that it was impossible. Overall, I think it turned out pretty well.” 
 
With two UK Top Ten singles to his name, the Jonas Blue smash ‘Perfect Strangers’ which he co-wrote and the inescapable radio hit ‘September Song’ (which has HAD over 350 million streams worldwide), JP has notched up an incredible 10 million single units worldwide, and an extraordinary 1 billion streams. HIS album also contained the infectious, ‘She’s on My Mind’, the gospel tinged, soaring ‘Passport Home’ and ‘Momma’s Prayers’ a collaboration with Stormzy.
 
No stranger to the live arena, JP has already sold out shows at London’s most famous venues including The Village Underground, Koko, 02 Forum Kentish Town, 02 Shepherd’s Bush Empire and the aforementioned Roundhouse.
 
Following the fantastic ‘Ordinary People’ collaboration with Bugzy Malone in 2018, and the stunning serenade of the ‘Cheerleader’ demo at the end of last year, JP has his sights firmly set on reclaiming his masterful crown, with more new music pencilled to be released before the year is through.
