Daniel Powter - Delicious
Powter grew up in Vernon, in the Okanagan-Shuswap region of British Columbia. As a child, Powter played the violin at the age of 4. He changed to piano at 10 years old after a group of children bullied him and destroyed his violin. Suffering from dyslexia, Powter had trouble in university studying music, and dropped out after 2 years in order to pursue his own musical career, learning all songs by ear and recording new melodies that he created. He started writing songs when he was 13 years old.
Michelle Branch - Best I Ever Had
Michelle Branch is back and better than ever. The singer, who you probably know from romcom soundtracks and TV commercials, was just 17 when she started making music. The now-33-year-old has spent the past fifteen years or so growing up — and she has the new music to prove it. Refinery29 sat down with Branch to chat about her upcoming album, Hopeless Romantic, and the new music video for the single "Best You Ever," which is out today.
"I think this album is definitely the most autobiographical in a sense that when my earlier work was out I was writing about love and relationships from the perspective of a teenager who had barely had any experience in that realm," she explained. Recently, the singer divorced her husband of eleven years, and found herself back on the dating scene for the first time as an adult.
Ruth B - Superficial Love
Impressing both with her flawless vocals and sharp skills on the keyboard, the songstress drops heartfelt lines like, “This superficial love thing got me goin’ crazy/ Baby, if you want me then you better need me/ ‘Cause I’m so done not being your number one”
The colorful video features lyrics to the track flowing in and out of the frame with frequent color scheme changes and fun visuals that vibe with the lyrical content. It’s an upbeat number that sounds like Ruth is happily letting you know that she’s only down with the real.
"It's about letting go of things that don't matter and discovering yourself in the process. Loving yourself for who you are and demanding the same authenticity in all of your relationships".
