ABOUT JAKE MILLER

When an artist controls his destiny, he builds a lasting legacy.

Critically acclaimed Miami-raised and Los Angeles-based pop singer, producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Jake Miller takes matters into his own hands. Not only does he craft all of his beats and pen lyrics, but he also plays guitar and piano. This artisan approach adds a tactile touch and heartfelt honesty to pop augmented by funked-out swagger and soulful style. That sound not only pushed his cumulative plays past the 200-million-mark, but also caused the likes of USA Today to predict, “Miller seems to be on the precipice of the next level of fame. Now, the multi-talented rising star stands poised to reach those heights on his 2019 debut EP BASED ON A TRUE STORY.for RED MUSIC, and he personally built the foundation to do so.

“I feel like I’ve been working towards this for the past two years,” he explains. “Everything in my life changed-from relationships to business. I became happy when I realized I could produce my own material, be independent, and do all of this by myself. For the first time, it really felt like me.”

Since his emergence, Miller has quietly and diligently worked towards such artistic freedom. In 2015, he earned a breakthrough with “First Flight Home,” which moved over 100,000 digital singles. That same year, his Overnight EP yielded the fan favorite title track, which co-starred Olympic Gold Medalist Simone Biles in its sexy video. On this steady rise, he attracted a diehard following known as “the Millertary” and comprising 1 million Instagram followers, 600K Twitter followers, and 1.1 million Facebook “likes” and counting.  He shared the stage with everyone from Ariana Grande to Shawn Mendes, and he garnered the endorsement of People Magazine, The Los Angeles Times, Teen Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Billboard, Just Jared, and more. Entertainment Weekly proclaimed him among “9 Artists to Hear Now” and Live Nation pegged him on its Ones To Watch. Going independent in 2017, he taught himself how to produce and make beats, leading to a pair of full-length releases2:00AM IN L.A. and Silver Lining–buoyed by hits such as “Can’t Help Myself” and “The Girl That’s Underneath” [feat. Jabbar Hakeem].

In the making of those albums, he found his creative compass.

“When I started out, I would go to sessions and work with other producers,” he says. “However, I took all of 2017 and dedicated myself to learning how to produce. I went to Guitar Center and bought thousands of dollars’ worth of equipment that I didn’t know how to use like a grand piano and a saxophone. Then, I stayed in my apartment and watched thousands of hours of YouTube tutorials. I wanted to download as much info into my brain as possible, so I didn’t need anybody else going forward. That set the stage for me.”

Signed to RED MUSIC in the midst of a stacked headline tour, he dove into making more music. Miller turned the first page of this new chapter with the 2018 single “WAIT FOR YOU.” Merging eighties-esque synth bass and expansive melodies, it clocked over 1 million global streams in under two months.

The 2019 follow-up single “NIKES” illuminates another side of the artist. Backed by rich production, thick bass, and hummable guitar courtesy of Miller, it paints a nostalgic, yet personal picture of a broken relationship with lines like, “I still got your Nikes laying in my closet right there in the corner teasing in me…All they do is bring back memories.”

“I had gotten out of an eight-year relationship, and I realized that I had a pair of shoes sitting in my corner that weren’t mine,” he recalls. “It’s basically reminiscing on what we had. It’s emotional about the past, but it makes you think about the future. My favorite songs can hype you up and cause you to get emotional too.”

His forthcoming six-song EP entitled BASED ON A TRUE STORY. thrives on that dynamic diversity, hinging on an upbeat funky strut throughout and incorporating everything from live choir to horn sections. It showcases the scope of his sound.

In the end, Miller has just begun building his legacy.

“When you think of me as a person and an artist, I hope it inspires you to take life by the horns,” he leaves off. “If you want something, just go after it. No one is going to work as hard for you as you are. I want my story and music to inspire you to keep going towards being the best at whatever you want to be.”

Jake Miller’s BASED ON A TRUE STORY EP is available everywhere now.

TLE Cinco Releases “2.0 Cinco” Mixtape

19 year-old Bessemer, Alabama native, TLE Cinco just released his debut-label project, 2.0 Cinco. The “All The Money” rapper caught the attention of 300 Entertainment in late 2018. After catching the attention of ElevatorSingersroom, and DJ Carisma, TLE has garnered a special feature from label-mate, Tee Grizzley for the remix of “All The Money.” Throughout the spring, Cinco will continue to release visuals from the 13-track project. Check out TLE Cinco’s new mixtape below.

Billy Raffoul Releases “Lovely”

Emerging singer/songwriter Billy Raffoul releases new song “Lovely” today on Interscope Records. “Lovely” was written by Raffoul and produced by Greg Kurstin and Raffoul.  “Lovely” is available now at all digital retailers and will appear on Raffoul’s forthcoming debut album which will be released later this year. 

Lovely is a sad happy song about missed opportunity,” says Raffoul.

Raffoul will hit the road this spring first heading out on a handful of dates opening for Julia Michaels, then supporting Parachute on their North American tour.  The extensive run of dates with Parachute will bring Raffoul to New York’s Gramercy Theater, Nashville’s Cannery Ballroom, D.C.’s 9:30 Club, Boston’s Royale as well as two dates at Los Angeles’ Troubadour.   With his debut album due out soon, he’s looking forward to widening the reach of his live show, a stripped-back performance currently featuring only Raffoul, his guitar, and his drum pedals.

Growing up in the small farming town of Leamington, Ontario, Raffoul first started writing songs at age 10, thanks in no small part to the influence of his father—a musician who’s opened for everyone from Joe Cocker to Bon Jovi. After landing his first paying gig—playing to long-haul drivers at a local truck stop—Raffoul began playing at nearby bars and clubs at age 16, often driving into Detroit for shows. He eventually connected with a manager and moved down to Nashville to push forward with his music career. Soon after scoring a deal with Interscope Records, Raffoul released the critically hailed song “Driver” and followed that with his debut EP 1975 in June 2018.  Critical praise followed with NPR raving, “Billy Raffoul has stepped into the spotlight.” Over the past few years, Raffoul has opened for heavyweight artists like, Kings of Leon, X Ambassadors, NEEDTOBREATHE and Kaleo, captivating crowds with his understated yet intensely passionate stage presence.

Dj Snake and Eptic “SouthSide”

DJ Snake and Eptic have teamed up on a new song, “SouthSide,” which is released today via Geffen Records and available from all digital partners.

Listen to “SouthSide” by DJ Snake and Eptic HERE.

The French DJ and producer and Belgian bass music prodigy teamed up after running into each other at the airport in London two years ago. “Snake said he wanted to work together, but only on one condition,” Eptic says. “We had to make the hardest track possible. It took a lot of time and elbow grease, but we ended up with something next level and I couldn’t be more proud. I’ve been opening with this for last few months and it absolutely destroys the dance floor.” 

DJ Snake’s previous single “Taki Taki,” featuring Selena Gomez, Ozuna, and Cardi B, shot to No. 1 on iTunes in 25 countries, continuing his track record of global hits, from “Turn Down for What” to “Let Me Love You” to the club smash of last summer — his India-inspired “Magenta Riddim.” The video for “Taki Taki” is the sixth-fastest music video of all time to hit 100 million views on YouTube. Visit http://djsnake.com/tour/ for upcoming tour dates, which include appearances at Coachella on April 12 and April 19, and the sold out Pardon My French, featuring DJ Snake, Tchami X Malaa, and Mercer, at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver on April 26.

Twenty-five-year-old wunderkind Eptic has established himself as one of the brightest talents in bass music, earning millions of streams through a slew of powerhouse anthems including his remix of “Get With The Program” with Trampa, his collaboration with Zomboy on “Bop It,” and his re-work of Dillon Francis’ “Say Less” featuring G-Eazy.

 

Maggie Rogers Announces North American Tour Dates

 Just before launching her sold-out spring tour tonight, Maggie Rogers announced a new series of North American dates. The Heard It In A Past Life tour will kick off on July 26 at Thompson’s Point in Portland, ME. The outing will include a two-night stand at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall (October 1 & 2) and shows at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA (September 20), Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium (October 15) and ACL Live at The Moody Theater in Austin (October 19).  Empress Of and Jacob Banks will join Rogers as support. Visit https://www.maggierogers.com/live/ for itinerary. The acclaimed producer/songwriter/performer will also play numerous festivals, including Coachella. 

 

Pre-sale tickets for the summer/fall shows go on sale to members of Rogers’ fan club on Monday, March 25th.  The AMEX pre-sale begins on Monday, March 25thand the Spotify pre-sale starts on Wednesday, March 27th.  Tickets go on sale to the general public here on Friday, March 29th, at 10:00 AM local time. AEG Presents will present the majority of Rogers’ fall tour. The remaining dates will be presented by independent promoters. Rogers recently wrapped up a tour of the U.K., Ireland and Europe. At London’s O2 Academy Brixton, Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine joined her onstage for a performance of “Light On.”

 

Rogers is touring in support of her Capitol Records debut album, Heard It In A Past Life, which entered Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart at No. 1 and charted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. It has sold nearly 200,000 album adjusted units to date with cumulative streams across all tracks exceeding 400 million. Her current single, “Light On,” topped Billboard’s Adult Alternative Songs chart for two consecutive weeks. Rogers recently performed “Burning,” another track from the album, on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.” View here.

 

In this feature, The New York Times said, “‘Heard It in a Past Life’ is a collection of buoyant electronic pop songs, but the lyrics are unmistakably the work of an introvert struggling to recalibrate.” Rolling Stone awarded the album four stars and hailed it as “a laser focused statement with nary a wasted lyric or synth line.”TIME said, “The album confirms Rogers as a tender but powerful musical force, putting her in the company of a group of solo female artists claiming space outside of the typical machines of pop, country or R&B.” NPR Music noted, “’Heard It In A Past Life’ (is) smart sparkling pop.”

 

Maggie Rogers grew up in Easton, Maryland. After graduating from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, she released her critically acclaimed debut EP, Now That The Light Is Fading. The BBC, Tidal, Google Play, Vevo, Pandora and numerous publications – including Rolling StoneNYLON, SPINBillboard and more – have tipped her as an artist to watch. NPR named her one of its Favorite Musicians and The New Yorker declares, “Maggie Rogers is an artist of her time.”  Rogers’ television performances include “Saturday Night Live,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” “The Late Late Show with James Corden” and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” Named as the first YouTube Artist On The Rise (AOTR) of 2019, she has also been included in Twitter Music’s #ArtistToFollow, Amazon’s First And Last and Pandora’s Drumbeats programs.

X Ambassadors “Boom” Music Video

KIDinaKORNER/Interscope rock band X Ambassadors’ latest single “BOOM” was co-written by the band and produced by Ricky Reed (Twenty One Pilots, Leon Bridges).Visceral and instinctive, “BOOM” is a quick-fire anthem for emphatic recovery and personal revolutions. As its beat rocks, personal demons and toxic relationships recede in the rearview mirror.  The artwork for “BOOM” is written in Braille and designed in a yellow-on-black colorway. For Casey Harris, the band’s keyboardist and Sam Harris’ brother, who was born blind, it is the first physical manifestation of his work that he has been able to experience visually. He has just 10% of his vision.  “BOOM” will be featured on the band’s forthcoming album, the follow up to their debut platinum selling album VHS, later this year.
