Jeremy Loops - See I wrote it for you
In 2011, Loops released his self-titled EP. His debut album "Trading Change" was released March 2014 in South Africa and debuted at No. 1 on iTunes South Africa. The album was then released in North America via Yebo Music in August 2015. He toured the United States as a support slot on Rebelution's "Winter Greens Tour", followed with two headline U.S. tours of his own, The Jeremy Loops US Tour and the Trading Change Tour. Loops ended 2015 supporting Twenty One Pilots on the European leg of their Blurry Face Tour. With three shows remaining, the tour was cancelled following the November 2015 Paris attacks.
Loops announced "Continental Drift", his first headlining tour of Europe, scheduled to begin in January 2016.
The Corrs - I do what I like
Back after a lengthy ten years away as one of the most adored pop collectives in music – a period of time that would be enough to act as the nail in the coffin for most – The Corrs have made a surprise and welcomed return to the pop fold over these past 2 months with an appearance at BBC Radio 2’s Live in Hyde Park event in September, a flashy new single in the form of Bring On The Night and now their first full length studio album in over a decade in the shape of White Light.
Elle King - America's Sweetheart
King continues that clear path forward with her inaugural full-length, Love Stuff, wherein she mixes her crackling, powerful twang with greasy rock – and there’s no shortage of the cutting snark that was previously established on her EP.
King’s newly minted LP is a Pistol Annies’ Hell on Heels-esque mission statement – “Well, I could’ve sworn I told you I was mean,” sings King, growling the titular lyrics of “I Told You I Was Mean” – with a delivery that’s more akin to Janis Joplin’s grit and rasp.
It’s with equal ferocity that the Ohio-hailing singer-songwriter serves up Love Stuff’s opening salvo, “Where the Devil Don’t Go,” a bluesy romper that has King declaring, “Never got no good / Doing what I’m told.” She continues to preach a message of uninhibited recklessness on “Last Damn Night,” opening with a distinctly Black Keys-sounding intro, which comes as no surprise considering the fellow Ohioan duo’s Patrick Carney supplied the drums, while producer Mark Ronson delivers the track’s swampy guitars.
Birdy - Keeping your head up
Birdy starts the year with refreshing sound. What better way to start the new year than a fresh new single by Birdy? The British singer-songwriter announced she has been working on her third album for the past 18 months and she is now ready to kick off the promotion of her new music. The single ‘Keeping Your Head Up’ is the first taste and was released at the beginning of 2016. We can already tell 2016 will be a big year for Birdy!
