New Canadian Indie-Folk singer Rachel Gleddie releases stunningly beautiful debut ”Catacomb”

There are rare moments when you hear a song and it completely changes your day. This just happened when I turned this soulfully sweet song on full volume. It shows how music can heal you up and get you in the right mindset.

We can be our own biggest obstacle sometimes and it can really hold you back. When you break though the feeling is immense and you unlock so much that you have been missing. The pure-voiced Rachel Gleddie from Edmonton in Canada has just released her first ever song and it’s of such quality you would think she has been doing this for years. ”Catacomb” takes us through the fear of being burned and just keeping things simple. This is such a true message and so relevant right now during these wild times on planet earth. I’m so glad that Rachel found a way to unlock herself out and is now flying, free as a bird with the wind at her back. She sings with such beauty and the guitar sounds make me feel happy and warm inside. This is stunning indie-folk up there with the best. Peaceful music with a true message. Rachel Gleddie is a name to watch and I hope she tours soon so we can watch her live.

Stream more from this upcoming talent with so much soul right here on her Soundcloud.

A&R Factory Present: Spencer Ludwig

A trumpeter, singer, producer, and dancer who rocks alligator shoes with smoking style and panache, Spencer Ludwig brings any party to life.

Chances are, you’ve heard his lyrical lead trumpet soaring through the music of multiplatinum-selling indie pop act Capital Cities. Not only did the Los Angeles-born, half-Filipino vocalist-instrumentalist perform on their full-length debut In a Tidal Wave of Mystery, but he also crisscrossed the globe with the band, opening Katy Perry’s Prismatic World Tour and tearing up the stage at Coachella, Bonnaroo, and more.

Following a whirlwind two years in the group, he returned to Los Angeles in December 2014 and commenced writing solo material that showcased both his trumpet talents and dynamic, diverse vocals. On his 2016 solo debut he merges jazz virtuosity and pop style for a sound that simmers and swaggers with soul

Spencer says “Legend is one of my favorite sayings for the people who blow me away with out-of-this-world beauty and amazing talent. Legendary beauty & talent can be expressed in someone’s physicality, spirituality, approach to life, artistry and/or musicality.  This song is about seeing ‘it’ in one person and being drawn to them like a moth to the flame. Sometimes you can’t explain in words what attracts you to someone or something but you can’t deny the feeling or presence when it hits you.”

Legend will be the track used in the official promos for season 12 of NBC’s The Voice.
