About Cooper Phillip
Born in a small town in Russia to a family of accomplished classical musicians, her early years were shaped being raised by her grandmother and aunt while her mother, a master violin player, toured around the world with various symphonies. This separation led Phillip to take comfort in music where she was enamoured by the vocal stylings of Ella Fitzgerald. A young Phillip taught herself Fitzgerald’s songs inside and out, noticing every nuance of phrasing and jazz intonations. Phillip eventually enrolled at the prestigious Moscow State Classical Academy where she studied classical piano, music theory, harp, jazz, blues, ballet and voice. The songstress worked diligently to expand her vocal range and control, taking everything that came in her path and feeding off of the challenge.

Phillip’s music features an underlying theme of strength, grace, and empowerment. “I believe we underestimate ourselves often and our fear takes over. My goal is to show people that they are stronger and can do much more than they think they can”, she admits. Using true-life stories, hardships, and experiences, the songwriter emits authenticity and courage throughout her music.

Cooper Phillip has seen success with her previous single garnering over 10 million listens online. She has also developed an impressive and loyal fanbase, particularly on social media and has performed at some of Los Angeles most prestigious venues.

Summer Love | “10K Summer Nights” by Eighty Ninety

Indie-Pop Duo Eighty Ninety Are Back With New Single “10K Summer Nights”

10K Summer Nights by Eighty Ninety Brooklyn-based indie-pop act Eighty Ninety are returning with their first single of the year, “10K Summer Nights,”. Fusing their minimalist production with intimate lyricism and laidback melodies, the new single is a delicate yet striking record about young, hopelessly romantic love. “10K Summer Nights” kicks off a new phase for Eighty Ninety as they head towards the release of their highly-anticipated sophomore EP, set for a release later this summer.

Eighty Ninety is the project of two brothers, Abner (vocals, production) and Harper (guitar, production). They chose the name Eighty Ninety for the band as they felt it wouldn’t box them into a particular genre or sound, but called to mind everything from decades and eras of music that influence them, to speed limits, radio stations and liquor proofs.

Stream “10K Summer Nights” Now on Apple Music, Amazon, & Spotify!

Their break out single, “Three Thirty” was an instant success, catapulting to #2 on Spotify’s Global Viral Charts. “Three Thirty” was followed by their debut EP Elizabeth, which was supported heavily by Spotify and tastemakers alike. The brothers returned at the end of 2017 with “Your Favorite Song,” which was also remixed by Island Record’s budding electro-pop duo, Loote. To date, the duo have racked up over 22 million Spotify streams and have received praise from Alternative Press, Huffington Post, Galore, LADYGUNN and Ones To Watch, just to name a few.

Indie pop duo, Eighty Ninety

The past year has been momentous for the indie-pop brothers: they opened for Des Rocs in Brooklyn, toured the East Coast with Savoir Adore, made their SXSW (2018) debut, and even received the stamp of approval from Taylor Swift when she added their single “Your Favorite Song” to her “Songs Taylor Loves” Spotify playlist.

With a recently inked deal with Hard 8 Working Group (home to Billie Eilish, FINNEAS, CYN) and a brand new selection of music on the way, Eighty Ninety are a name to keep on your radar.

Book of Broken Romances | “All This Time” by Van Bellman

Indie-Rock Talent, Van Bellman Releases Third Single “All This Time”

All This Time by Van BellmanIf Sufjan Stevens was on a Beatles kick and stumbled upon a lost track from Beck’s Sea Change, it may sound like “All This Time,” a handful of broken romances distilled into one story. Boy wants girl, but plays it cool. She feels rejected and moves on. Boy comes crawling back, and she wants nothing to do with him. Rinse and repeat. The dogged heart defies the brain, again and again. After all this time I still spend all this time on you. It’s only fitting to release this yearning love song during the week of Valentine’s Day.

“All This Time” is Available Now on iTunes & Spotify!

indie rock artist, van bellmanAbout Van Bellman
Before starting Van Bellman last year, singer/guitarist Zac Taylor was writing and producing songs with other bands and artists. “I initially wrote ‘All This Time’ for Connell Cruise, who was label mates with my other band American Authors on Island Records a couple years ago, but has since moved back to South Africa where he just won Dancing With the Stars. But I always loved this song and I didn’t want it to fall through the cracks.”

“I’m mainly a guitarist but I love writing on piano because I can come across some happy accidents. That’s where the piano riff came from: a toy piano gathering dust in the corner of Mission Sound studio with one broken key, which you can hear in the track if you listen closely. I composed the string section digitally and had my friends Marie Kim (currently playing keys for Mitski) and Andy Baldwin (acclaimed mixing engineer for Björk, Cat Power, St Lucia, yours truly) replace it with actual cello and violin, which is truly a sonic treat in today’s digital age.”

The first three Van Bellman releases are all a bit different from each other. Sirius XM’s AltNation debuted the first single “I Hate To See You This Way,” a “bluesy rock and indie pop track that hits you hard from the second it starts and never seems to lose its momentum” (Live Nation’s Ones to Watch). “Gold & Blue” is “more of a pop anthem than the darkly ambient first single” (Billboard). “All This Time” is a forlorn love song with more orchestral elements and straightforward storyline.

Van Bellman has hit the ground running since its inception less than a year ago and shows no signs of slowing down.

Love Stallion recently released their latest video in time for their favorite holiday, Valentine’s Day. “Valentine” was produced by Arcadian Pictures, the same team behind the “Big Rock Radio” video.

“It was an absolute pleasure working again with John Hunt of Arcadian Pictures,” said Love Stallion frontman, Aaron Hart. “Our favorite part was the filming the black light party body-painting flashback scene! We filmed this at my condo in Denver, where a pair of Sexy Disco Legs hang above a big white plush area rug in the great room, surrounded in black light. Our tour company, Full Color Productions brought in 16 additional lighting fixtures to help set the mood, completely washing the room in black light and lasers. We had a bunch of friends out that night, along with DJs spinning house music (one of which was John, aka Panamaa). It was a total blast! Unfortunately, for our guests and my rug, the “washable” body paint didn’t turn out to be washable, ha!”

Torn-Love Ballads | “Not Supposed To” by Shae Jacobs

Shae Jacob is Torn by Love for Unfaithful Girlfriend on New Track “Not Supposed To”

“Not Supposed To” by Shae JacobsBritish-born songwriter, producer & artist, Shae Jacobs returns with an infectious, new Pop-R&B-tinged track “Not Supposed To”, the fourth single installment from his forthcoming EP (TBA).

With a soaring voice that combines technical chops with passion and versatility, Shae shines on his latest record with some of his most relatable lyrics. “Not Supposed To” is a beautifully written ballad in which Shae describes his feelings of wanting to reconnect with a past love even though he’s…not supposed to.

“Not Supposed To” embodies everything that all of us have felt at some point about an Ex: Why do we want them back despite the unfortunate things they put us through? Why can’t we stop thinking about them?

As for this song, it’s important to note that exes are exes for a reason and by the end of the first verse, Shae remembers WHY he broke up with his ex and decides to reject the idea of getting back with them. Still, the longing for someone you used to be romantically involved with doesn’t go away and it’s okay to acknowledge that which is why this song is so relatable.

“Not Supposed To” is Available Now on Major Music Streaming Outlets!

With his previous releases, Shae established himself as a multitalented artist known for exploring relationships, heartbreak, and healing with soulfulness beyond his years. In 2018, Shae unveiled three, independently released singles including “Fxck Me Up,” “Space,” and “Jealous”, which have earned placements on Spotify’s US NMF and the Top of Breaking Pop playlists, along with Apple’s Best of Week.

From Charlie with Love | “Find Someone Who Cares” by Charlie Hole

Singer/Songwriter, Charlie Hole, Releases “Find Someone Who Cares” from Forthcoming Album, Beautiful Decay

Find Someone Who Cares by Charlie Hole - BRASH! Magazine BlogCharlie Hole is one of the most exciting young singer-songwriters around nowadays. On “Find Someone Who Cares”, the fourth single from his upcoming album Beautiful Decay, his carefully crafted music combines Acoustic and Folk elements in such elegant manner. It is a splendid piano-ballad reminding us of Elton John glory days with modern Matt Simons, James Bay and John Mayer influences.

Charlie about his new single:
“I wrote Find Someone Who Cares for my Dad’s wedding after he asked me if I could sing a song during the ceremony. 

I was struggling to come up with anything because I wanted to get the moment just right and I had never written a pure love song before.

Eventually I found the melody from an old discarded song I had lying around, with the chorus essentially intact and I loved the sentiment of finding something and holding on to it. I rewrote the verses around some romantic imagery and phrased the lines as questions, more like traditional wedding vows couples get asked at ceremonies… like ‘will you take thee to be your lawful wedded wife etc…’ but made them more personal like ‘will you hold me in the silence of the moon as it’s dancing in your eyes?’… as soon as I had rephrased the lines as questions the song somehow worked, and I knew I had what I wanted.

I played it to my producer, Jim Cregan, to see what he thought. I played everything I ever wrote to him and I think this was the only time I ever made him cry with a song, so I knew I had a good one.

I played it during the wedding ceremony for my Dad and his wife, Sarah, and they both cried too, and to this day I still think it’s the best song on the album because I wasn’t trying to do anything clever or different with it, I just let it be what it is, a nice, honest love song.”

“Find Someone Who Cares” is Available Now on Music Streaming Outlets!

Charlie Hole - BRASH! Magazine BlogAbout Charlie Hole
