ALISON WONDERLAND x NEW VIDEO

Following her powerful performance at sunny Coachella, Alison Wonderland unveils her new video, Easy, which finds her dancing her way through a storm, stalked by an unrelenting rain cloud that even follows her indoors. Wonderland came up with the concept for the video after connecting with a scene from the 1998 film, The Truman Show.
“When I’m not happy, it feels like there is constant dark rain cloud over my head and it seems like everyone else is in the sunshine. It’s easy to feel isolated and alone, “explains Wonderland. “I wrote Easy on a day I felt like this. The description in the chorus is very literal. I woke up in bed too embarrassed to tell the guy next to me that I was sad for no reason, so I went to the bathroom to cry secretly because I was too scared to be honest at the time.”

SOUTHERN HALO

Southern Halo is comprised of three young ladies who hail from Cleveland, Mississippi. Endorsed by Gibson Guitars, the multitalented Morris sisters can all sing, play instruments and write most of their songs. Their latest country album, JUST LIKE IN THE MOVIES, showcases their passion for life and all things in between. Natalia (guitar), Christina (drums) and Hannah (bass) have been influenced by artists like Avril Lavigne, Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake. With powerful harmonies, top-notch production and instrumentation, this trio is nearly unstoppable. Many of their songs contain strong lyrical content which is extremely current in today’s march for gender equality. One of our favorite tracks is “I Think Too Much.” It’s an ode to second guessing your initial instincts in any given situation. Another anthemic track is “Anything Is Possible,” a motivational piece of art that’s about breaking glass ceilings in order to progress to the next level.

In short, Southern Halo is an intellectually sophisticated group of youthful women who know what they want and are determined to get it.

Summer Block Party Festival 2018

Live Nation Urban announces the fourth annual Summer Block Party Festival– the preeminent destination for soul and R&B devotees since 2015. Tickets go on-sale Friday April 20th at 10am.

 

After successfully expanding to include Houston in 2017, the original Chicago site will now host a second night for the very first time. Celebrating another first, Summer Block Party Festival now arrives in Philadelphia this summer. Once again, the lineup showcases some of the most important, impactful, and inimitable voices in soul, R&B, and hip-hop.

 

GRAMMY Award-winning modern icon Jill Scott returns home to Philly in order to headline the first night June 30 at The Mann Music Center. Miguel Fantasia top a dynamic bill at Cynthia Woods Pavilion in Houston July 7. Keith Sweat headlines the Chicago show at Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island July 14 followed by Babyface and Boyz II Men the next evening July 15.

 

The full itinerary and each respective lineup can be found enclosed below.

 

Summer Block Party set the industry standard for R&B and soul-centric festivals. Launched in Chicago during 2015, it has gone on to consistently sell out every year and spotlight not only genre luminaries, but the next generation’s hottest young R&B stars. Previous lineups boasted everyone from Erykah Badu and Jazmine Sullivan to Ledisi and SWV, to name a few.

 

It also continues a blockbuster 2018 for the team at Live Nation Urban. The year’s stacked slate includes not only Summer Block Party shows, but Rap Caviar Live, Broccoli City Festival, Roots Picnic, A Night of Symphonic Hip Hop, and Kirk Franklin’s Exodus Music & Arts Festival. LNU has positioned itself at the forefront of the culture, ushering it forward with each subsequent show.

 

“We feel blessed to be able to continue to build and grow this Summer Block Party platform, it’s important to give R&B artists and fans a place to engage in a live setting. I’m looking forward to the shows this year and adding even more cities to the series next year”, says Shawn Gee, President of Live Nation Urban.
