“The More You Know” by Jane Leo – Electrifying & Hypnotic Performance

Jane Leo returns with another impressive single:

Indie-rock band Jane Leo is back with their follow up single “The More You Know”. After an impressive debut release; “Tell Me (I’m on Your Mind), we have been eagerly waiting to see what this dynamic duo will create next.

Jane Leo was formed by Daniel Leopold and Jane Ellen Bryant a few years ago after both artists came to a crossroads in their personal careers. Jane Leo told us: “Everything felt revitalized through this new path. All projects started to flow authentically as soon as that happened. These songs capture our artistic and personal transformations.”

The band have received an enthusiastic response from old and new fans. After their first live performance this month, the excitement from both the fans and band was overwhelming and kept the band buzzing all night long.

Their newest release, “The More You Know”, poured out of Jane Leo at a particularly creative high point at the beginning of last year, just before the whole world changed. They told us: “It feels happy. Who knew we needed that?”

This emotive indie-rock ballad carries a mysterious and enticingly dreamy atmosphere. Jane’s expressive and seductive performance hypnotises listeners, while Daniel’s impressive guitar riffs electrify our senses.

The powerful musical composition evokes potent emotions within the listener. The contrast between the dynamic instrumental delivery and the hushed vocal performance cleverly complements the contrasting lyrical story.

Coco Bean Fights for First Place!

VOTE for COCO BEAN: https://openingact.radio.com/2021/coco-bean

The excitement is building as the final votes are being cast for the Audacy’s annual Hollywood Bowl concert in Los Angeles. We have been following Coco Bean, the stage alter-ego of Phil Elam, on his journey throughout the competition.

We managed to catch up with Phil as he was just getting off the film set for an upcoming Lifetime Movie. Even though he can’t say anything about the movie or his involvement, he says to make sure you have a warm snuggly blanket to curl up with when it’s released.

We asked Phil about his preparations for the opening act. If he wins this competition we know he will deliver an incredible performance. Phil told us: “It’s all about seeing it in detail, pulling elements from favourite concert performances and bringing them all together into a cohesive vision. That is the primary focus.”

He added: “If honoured to be the Hollywood Bowl concert opener, expect an imaginative and extravagant visual introduction that will dazzle and thrill the audience. This will be an experience that will set the tone for the rest of the night. Everyone will know that It’s-gonna-be-a-PARRTTTAAEEEEE!”

SURPRISE:

Not only is Phil a highly skilled and talented singer, songwriter and producer. But he also studied classical piano as a young child. Phil told us: “When people learn this the response is always like, “WWWHATTTTT!!??? My last live show was at Detroit’s intimate Marlene Bolls Theatre, in January 2020, right before Ms Corona showed up.” He added, “The show ended with the first original song I ever wrote on an upright piano. It was sooooo humbling to see everyone on their feet at the end.”

You can watch the YouTube video of this finale act from Coco Beans sold-out show, and get a taster of the powerful performance that Coco Bean will deliver to the audience should he win this competition.

The fact that Coco Bean will deliver a breathtaking performance is not the only reason to vote for him. He is also an artist at the forefront of charitable giving and has contributed many royalties to support different charities. He has told us: “Forgotten Harvest is a charity that I have worked with before. I will work with them again if I am honoured to win.”

So, VOTE for COCO BEAN! An incredible artist with a heart of gold who promises to deliver a spectacular performance!

“Cream Soda” by Deladap and Wolfgang Lohr – Ecstatic Swing Beats Deliver a Thrilling Track

The Dream Team are back with another showstopping track!

Vienna-based electronic dance music group, Deladap, headed by Stanislav Vana and renowned Berlin-based producer, Wolfgang Lohr from Electro Swing Thing have returned with their impressive new single, “Cream Soda”, a guaranteed club banger.

The dream team wouldn’t be complete without the captivating vocals of Hungarian singer, Melinda Stoika, who started her music career singing in her father’s band and with crooner Louie Austen in Viennas most prestigious jazz clubs and hotel bars. It wasn’t long before she became a household name and got to know Stanislav.

Deladap, headed by Stanislav, is an ever-evolving band that perceives itself as an electronic pop band that always has the same theme running through their music; life is beautiful. Music is beautiful. Dancing is beautiful.

Wolfgang is a prominent producer who has solidified his position in the electronic music scene since 2011. Before this, he spent 15 years as a singer, songwriter and trumpeter for the ska band “DaSKArtell”. Wolfgang explained to us: “the motto, ‘now more than ever,’ says it all. Electro Swing is what I’m all about right now, and this is the moment that everything is happening in that space. So, it’s just as much as I can do all the time, release after release, project after project.”

“Cream Soda”

“Cream Soda” opens with a foot-tapping, body shimmying, cheerful and upbeat melody. It immediately inspires listeners to head to the dance floor to revel in the liberating electro-swing beats.

Melinda’s delightfully seductive vocals deliver a sexy yet cute performance that bewitches listeners to sing a long with the anthemic chorus: “please put a cherry on the top, please put a cherry on the top. Put a cherry on the top”.

Multiple layers of instrumental and synthesised arrangements create an intensely impressive soundscape with differing levels which thrill and excite us into a state of ecstasy.

An entertaining music video accompanies “Cream Soda” that showcases impressive contortionist dancers who captivate viewers with their funky movements and fabulous style.

Watch the music video here…

This is the perfect new song to add to your electro-swing playlist. If you enjoy artists such as Caravan Palace and Parov Stelar, then you will love Deladap and Wolfgang Lohr.

“About Me” by BFM Cooley is set to release September 9th featuring EST Gee

New Release “About Me” dropping September 9th:

Florida rising rap artist, BFM Cooley is making noise in his local scene of Palm Beach. His highly anticipated, headbanging track titled “About Me” is dropping on September 9th. The release also features rap artist, “EST Gee”. With over 230K YouTube subscribers and a climbing 6 million views on his most recent video, fans are raving about the collaboration. There is an overall buzz about this release, claiming it’s a “certified club banger”.

Cooley and EST Gee are projected to do numbers across the board. Due to their marketable image and social media influence, this release is expected to skyrocket. On BFM Cooley’s side of the spectrum, his song “Ice” featuring Meek Mill artist “Tafia” strengthened the artist’s musical palette. Beyond the digital streaming platforms, his overall catalogue includes nothing but heavy hitters fit for everyone’s playlist.

While steadily beating out the competition, there appears to be an overall consensus that this track will further solidify Cooley’s presence in the rap industry. The young rap mogul recently performed in Miami. He was later seen with the popular music group “MouyeGang Music Inc” shutting down the scene. Sources say his stage presence alone kept the crowd engaged so much that the DJ was compelled to put his song on repeat afterwards.

Both EST Gee and Cooley have the potential to take over the Florida music scene and beyond with this single. On September 9th the world will be able to access “About Me”; tuning their ears to real authentic trap. If you enjoy artists such as Gucci Mane or Kodak Black, then BFM Cooley will fit perfectly on your rap playlist.

Here’s a taster of what Coco Bean will be offering on stage…

We sat down with Coco Bean aka Phil Elam to talk about this exciting opportunity and why he is the perfect choice.

Q: How do feel about qualifying in the Top 10 contestants for the annual Audacy’s Hollywood Bowl concert opening act?

CB: I’m here only because of the people who voted. On the last day of the Top-10 finals, I was out of the running at unlucky #13 — Yikes! I knew I couldn’t pull it out alone so I reached out and asked for help. At the cut off THE PEOPLE moved me all the way from #13 up to Lucky #7! (#7 is my favourite number, btw). So, how do I feel? I feel like hugging EVERRRRYBODDDYY! I am so thankful and blessed.

Q: Have you always wanted to perform at the Hollywood Bowl?

CB: In a word……YAZZZZZZZ!!!! Like so many things, you dream about stuff like that. Performing at The Hollywood Bowl is right up there with having dinner at Buckingham Palace and getting to pick the menu. But then again, isn’t that what life should always be about; daring to dream a dream and dreaming that it will one day come true.

Q: What kind of performance should the audience expect to see from Coco Bean if you win?

CB: I am a huge fan of legendary performers like Elton John, Bob Seger and Prince for their musicianship. Also, I can’t get enough of the theatrical production of performers like David Bowie & Lady Gaga. But what is most important is making sure that everyone walks away feeling like they had an incredible time. As Dr Maya Angelou said: “people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Q: What makes you the best choice for the Hollywood Bows opening act?

CB: I am the best choice for this honour because no one else will dedicate the results of this opportunity to the service of others like I will! Because no one else will give the audience a better show than I will and I will be the only one who will thank EVERYONE who voted for me by listing their name on a video screen on stage!

Q: The winner will receive $10,000. What would you do with this money?

CB: I would definitely give a chunk of it to charity. Particularly to those people who are still suffering devastation from the Corona Virus pandemic. So many people are still struggling to eat, find housing, etc. I HAVE TO GIVE BACK if honoured to receive $10,000.

Q: What do you have to say to the voters?

CB: First of all, thank you so much to everyone who has voted for me so far. We are almost home. But we have a little more road to travel together before we get there. I am already grateful to you and I will continue to be forever grateful if you walk with me a little longer. I dedicate my art and my heart to being of service. I pray that what I create and share will find a safe space with you. Because I always hold a safe space for you in my heart.
