Glad That Its Over: Soulful Nashville artist Ally Westover knows that he was actually the ‘Logistical Nightmare’

After releasing two marvelous singles to date called ‘Lullaby‘ from 2019 and her most recent effort named ‘Oh, Colorado‘, Ally Westover draws us a picture of an unwise ex who foolishly didn’t support her vision on ‘Logistical Nightmare‘.

Ally Westover is a lovably dreamy and fantastically authentic Nashville, Tennessee-based, Colorado State graduate, snowboarder, chip enthusiast and indie-pop/rock artist. She is a caring soul who is wholeheartedly inspired by nature and feeling that real rare genuine energy within her whole body.

After a tumultuous year of change and solitude, Westover is releasing her debut EP, Painted Gold in mid October Her songs poke fun of her struggles with mental health and heartbreak while maintaining an upbeat sense of hope. She writes a lot of her music with her long distance best friend and photographer, Chiara Garland.” ~ Ally Westover

With a flourishing vocal ability that soothes your broken heart and has you totally enraptured by her stunning talent, this is a reflective glance to a moment that leads to that to all-important treasure of self-enlightenment.

The making of the music video was a true logistical nightmare because we shot it on Super8 film which then got overexposed and we had to do the entire thing over again. This includes baking a cake and smearing it all over my face.” ~ Ally Westover

Logistical Nightmare‘ from the highly promising and hungry Nashville-based indie-pop/rock artist Ally Westover, shows us vividly explained story which was carefully stored inside her expressive mind, when she understandably felt so emotionally betrayed by the dreaded ex who didn’t understand or truly care about her vision.

This is a strong woman who has creativity oozing from her hungry veins – and sings with such a pure beauty and purpose –  that is always evolving and trying to be the best version of herself, in this rather lonely world.

Sometimes we need to wonder off the tracks with someone we shouldn’t be with for a short while, so that we then know where we should definitely be in life. The heart always knows.

Delta Fish pushed the boundaries of hip hop even further with his latest single, ‘Dumb and Numb’.

Nashville-based hip hop artist Delta Fish keeps on proving that he’s got the hunger to ravage his way to the top with each new release; the refreshing grooves in his latest single, Dumb and Numb, is the perfect example of his pioneering appetite.

That ‘dumb and numb’ feeling you get when your MH issues start to peak is something that people scarcely talk about, let alone put in their rap bars. Delta Fish managed to create a multi-faceted release that offers all of the usual showy bravadoes along with the most candid lyrics you’re likely to hear this year in the chorus.

The 80s-style synth lines around the steady rattle of the 808s and melodic loops create a magnetic platform for Delta Fish’s bars that flirt with elements of pop and RnB.

The official music video for Dumb and Numb dropped on July 9th; you can check it out for yourselves via YouTube.

Colorado-born, Nashville-based singer-songwriter Madelyn Jones has followed on from the success of her 2020 debut single, For You, with the release of her tranquil indie-pop track, Carolina Blue.

Carolina Blue is the perfect soundscape for those chilled summer nights; as the lyrics inspire affectionate nostalgia, the mellow pace of the sun-bleached indie-pop instrumentals brings Nashville-style catharsis

At a young age, Madelyn Jones is already exhibiting the same level of maturity and finesse as her dynamic array of influences. The singer-songwriter who has been writing songs since the 5th grade takes inspiration from everyone from Taylor Swift to the Beatles to Frank Sinatra. Discernibly, she can authentically mimic all of the aforementioned’s abilities to evoke emotion through music, and got her money’s worth from her music degree at Belmont University.

Carolina Blue is now available to stream on all platforms via this link.
