See Through Her Disguise: Atlanta rock artist Devin Shamel knows that she is on Fire

Intuitively knowing that he should tread carefully before getting burnt too deep into her flirtatious eyes, Devin Shamel turns up the temperature with a sizzling song when you know you have met someone who will keep you on your toes on Fire.

Devin Shamel is an Atlanta, Georgia-based indie rock singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who shreds the strings with each performance that is rather spellbinding.

I want to be proud of the music I’ve made when I look back on it. Making Pop or R&B music was the trendy thing to do, but didn’t feel right for me. Playing the Blues and Rock music felt authentic for who I am as a person. It makes me proud to share my work,” ~ Devin says in regards to switching genres

Flowing with so much Jimi Hendrix-like brilliance and genuine class, Devin Shamel might be one of the most exciting artists you probably haven’t heard of yet until now. He is excellent beyond belief, showing that a genre change is worth it if these are the results.

Fire from Atlanta, Georgia-based indie rock singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Devin Shamel is a rocket fueled track when you know you are in the crosshairs of something tantalizing but dangerous. Projected with a magnificent blend of intrigue, you will feel a sense of relief after listening to this.

Proper music with authenticity is certainly still alive.

Ariel transfused spirituality into her amalgam of rap, RnB and pop with her debut single, Self-Love

Ariel

Georgia-born and raised artist, Ariel, is set to soak the airwaves in spirituality, self-actualisation, and style with the release of her debut single, Self-Love, which entwines elements of rap, RnB and pop to create her unique sonic signature.

With the sense of empowerment and soul transfused into the modernist instrumentals in Self-Love, along with the lyrics that prove wealth can only transpire from mindfulness and the only soul that you really need to look in is your own, it’s impossible not to feel emboldened by the time the artfully intricate outro is fading out.

Without tearing down the current rap icons, it’s about time that artists in the same vein as Ariel started to reign supreme in the charts; on the basis of the alluringly awakening creativity and talent exhibited in Self-Love, there’s no reason why she can’t ascend from the underground in no time.

Self-Love will officially release on October 7th. Check it out on Spotify and iTunes via this link.

Andrea & Mud are a rocksteady cinematic vision in their honkytonk classic country single, A World Just You and Me

Slip away from the 21st century with the honkytonk classic country single, A World Just You and Me, by the alchemically alluring Atlanta-based duo Andrea & Mud.

With Setzer-esque winding guitars which resound around the custom-crafted surf-western motifs between trickling piano keys and percussion that was crafted to jive to, A World Just You and Me is a rocksteady cinematic vision which transcends nostalgia by moving into the future of retro.

While Andrea Colburn vocally brings the grace and beguile, Kyle ‘Mud’ Moseley’s baritone vocal soul aches with sincerity, despite the playful tone of the romantically spurred lyrics.

A World Just You and Me will be available to stream and download from September 13th. Catch it on Soundcloud.

Michelle Ayers sets the pace in her soul house anthem, Fast Steppin’

Newark-born, Atlanta-based veteran recording artist Michelle Ayers has been projecting soul into the EDM scene since 1988. In 2022, she is on zealous form in her latest single, Fast Steppin’.

As cool as a New York club kid in the 90s, as soulful as Houston, she was best placed to bring the funk, groove and euphoria in her escapist retro disco house anthem, which shows the vast range of her soaring vocal dynamism over the solid beats and Nile Rodgers Esque synthesised guitar chops. Feel good tracks have never felt so good.

Fast Steppin’ is now available to stream on Soundcloud.

Atlanta rapper MgnBlak brought substance back in style with his latest single, In My Head

Atlanta-based independent artist, MgnBlak, firmly implanted soul in his latest hip hop single, In My Head, which is just as vulnerable as the title implies.

Even though the melodically transfixing single narrates the artist’s individualistic life experiences, it is all too easy to find the resonance within In My Head – especially around the gospel elements, which manifest through the quelling timbre of the organ around the trap beats.

MgnBlak sought to be a breath of fresh air for the hip hop genre; it’s safe to say he succeeded with In My Head; its universal appeal transcends genre. Regardless of your usual aural inclinations, it is impossible not to FEEL when In My Head is in full flow. We are officially stoked to hear his debut EP, Hear Me Now.

In My Head is now available to stream on Spotify.

Rough Times: Nolan Stich can barely see himself in the cracked mirror on Stress Fracture

Returning after his previous well-loved single Don’t Leave, Nolan Stich feels so cold right now as he misses that incredible lover from the past who he thinks of constantly on the emotional roller coaster called Stress Fracture.

Nolan Stich is an Atlanta, Georgia-based indie pop singer-songwriter who makes that memorable music that is always honest and vocally pleasing.

Feeling cold and lonely as he reminisces fondly about when he was holding hands with an outstanding human, Nolan Stich recalls that relationship and sings with a passion that is so rare to find these days. His vocals are honest and pure, his memory reflective, as he longs for just another kiss.

Stress Fracture from Atlanta, Georgia-based indie pop singer-songwriter Nolan Stich is an I-miss-you-too-much single for anyone who feels so empty right now. Wishing that the phone would ring as his desolate heart feels so flat and sad, as he wonders if he should take another sip or just go to bed.

When you were with someone so special and they left you behind, it’s so hard not to blame yourself.

After her seminal single Climate Change garnered over 280,000 streams and was added to multiple official Spotify playlists, hip hop’s fieriest newcomer, King Cooley, is set to release her latest soulful stormer, Get Down.

With experimental electronic signatures in place of the usual archetypal 808 rattle, not a million worlds away from the indietronica beats from Warpaint, it is hard not to admire the lengths King Cooley went to with Get Down. She’s finishing what Eilish started.

Get Down will officially release on August 12th; hear it here.
