Ruth B announces her new album Moments In Between out June 11 on Downtown Records. The album is the follow up to Safe Haven. Moments In Between was produced by Patrick Wimberly, Justin Raisen and Doug Schaft. These producers have worked with Beyonce, Ellie Goulding, Angel Olsen, Maggie Rogers and Ashe.
“‘Situation’ is maybe my favorite song I’ve ever written,” says Ruth, who wrote the track with Ido Zmishlany (Demi Lovato, Shawn Mendes). “It sounds so much like me, and where I am now versus a few years ago.”
“Writing songs has always been therapeutic for me,” says Ruth, “and I hope that hearing my songs helps other people in the same way. Whether they’re feeling lonely or heartbroken or happy, I want them to know that someone else understands what they’re going through.”
Delacey has written some of the biggest hits including “Without Me” for Halsey, and “Unstable” for Justin Bieber. Now she is releasing her sophomore solo album The Girl Has A Dream out August 6. Joining Delacy on the album was Ido Zmishlany, a frequent collaborator who has also worked with Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello & Demi Lovato.
The lead single off the album is “Boy With the Blues”
“Although ‘Boy With The Blues’ is very personal and about my very real relationship, it has a greater message that I just love. Not only accepting someone’s darkness but really loving that part of them. Adoring them to the point of feeling like they could do anything and you’d still love them… which is both beautiful and toxic in such a phenomenal way to me.”
Liberty moved from Dallas to California to attend Septien Entertainment Group, a boot camp whose alumni include Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez and Kacey Musgraves. She impressed her vocal coach Remington Fafael enough that he produced her first two tracks. Today she releases “Tattoo” which deals with the growth from child to adult and the judgements she faced pursuing her dream.
Since COVID-19 began our local independent music venues have been suffering. In reaction the National Independent Venue Association was born. NIVA has been lobbying congress to get relief money so we don’t lose our independent venues. It has created a coalition of over 3000 member venues across the US in the music, comedy and arts sector.
The festival will be hosted by Reggie Watts and feature performances from 35 artists recorded live from more than 25 independent concert venues across the United States. These artists join YouTube and NIVA to amplify the message of NIVA’s Save Our Stages advocacy efforts and raise funds for its nationwide, need-based grant program to provide relief to these important members of the independent music, comedy and arts community.
The artists in the festival include:
Little Big Town
And many more. Fans can watch the festival on NIVA’s YouTube Channel and on the individual artist’s YouTube Channel. Fans can donate directly to the NIVA Emergency Relief Fund at https://www.nivassoc.org/erf
