Blog interview: Sarah Krimson

Hello Sarah, how are you? I’m good thanks 🙂 Congratulations on the release of “Urban Melancholia”, how does it feel?

Single Review: “Focus” – Nyla Sings

Nyla Sings – Focus This is a gorgeous acoustic number! WOW. Nyla’s voice comes in giving the whole song warmth, over a bed of acoustic guitar, finger snaps, 808 drums and synth bass.

Single Review: “When I Fall” – BRAVE JAMES ft. Oli Rockberger
