Netherlands Singer/Songwriter, Julia ZahraAbout Julia Zahra
Julia Zahra was born in 1995 in Indianapolis, US as Julia van der Toorn, and was raised in The Netherlands.

In 2013 she auditioned in the fourth season of The Voice of Holland with an accoustic guitar version of Britney Spears’ ‘Oops I Did It Again’ (over 6 million streams on Spotify). From that first moment on she was one of the favourites and gained popularity, and won the competition at only 18 years old – the youngest winner thus far. After that she released her debut album.

A year later Julia participated in ‘The Best Singers of The Netherlands’, a Dutch TV competition in which artists perform cover versions of each other’s songs, and won this show as well. In one episode she sang ‘Just an Illusion’ which ended up high in the Dutch iTunes charts in 2015. More than a year later the song was picked up in Fiji, where it still is a top ten song, and eventually all around The Pacific, Australia and New Zealand. You can hear the song also on the radio in L.A., San Francisco and even Canada, and by now it has over 4 million streams on Spotify. Zahra toured around the Pacific for 2 months, amongst other venues playing the Vodafone Arena in Fiji and a sold out Club Royals in Auckland, NZ.

In January 2018 Julia released her EP Something New, which is a raw and acoustic interpretation of her songs. Currently she is performing live in The Netherlands with her almost sold out The Remedy Tour, and is ready to overwhelm everybody with a new sound and a lot of new tunes.

About SammMulti Platinum R&B Singer/Songwriter, SAMMIEie
The world watched Sammie grow up from a 12-year-old sensation into a record-breaking and multi platinum-selling singer, songwriter, and performer. In 2017, Sammie showed the world that he has fully come of age with the release of his third record and first independent full-length LP, Coming of Age [Star Camp Music/EMPIRE]. This body of work confidently transitioned Sammie in evolving into the artist he’s worked towards becoming for the past 18 years. “I was blessed to have a sense of stardom and limelight at a young age,” Sammie exclaims. “I was a little boy when I first entered the hearts and heads of fans. There’s a substantial difference in the man they see before them now. I’ve matured. I’ve made a lot of mistakes. I’ve had a lot of wins. I’ve had a lot of losses, which I’ve found lessons in. I’ve never taken my foot off the gas though. There were certain detours I needed to take to get back on the right road. Today, it’s beautiful to be on this path. I’m blessed, grateful, and humbled to be here. I’ve come of age.”

2016 set the stage for his second album, in which Sammie delivered a bona fide hit with the I’m Him EP. The Shade Room touted the title track and it transformed into a viral smash with over 2.7millionSpotify streams and 1.9 million YouTube/VEVO views, between garnering praise from HipHopDX, AXS, Revolt, YouKnowIGotSoul, and more. He continued to constantly record, engaging his audience by personally previewing the writing process on Instagram. You could say his followers “executive produced” the music. He most definitely evolved over the course of these 13 new anthems.

Now, Sammie is ready to prove that Coming Of Age was just the pit-stop to his next musical journey, and is excited to shoot fire on all creative cylinders with the highly anticipated release of his fourth studio album. The project will showcase Sammie’s rich and deep soundscapes and provide the perfect platform for impressive vocal runs and timeless R&B swagger. The atmospheric nature and infectious tone will give way to clever choruses and vivid storytelling, showcasing his undeniable growth, maturity, and progression–everything Sammie has been working towards and more.

Like No Time Has Passed| “All My Friends” by Matt Koelsch ft Georgia Feroce

New highly anticipated single from Matt Koelsch ft Georgia Feroce, “All My Friends”

all my friends by Matt Koeslch ft Georgia Feroce - brash! magazine blog“All My Friends” is about the heart warming spirit of friendship after a prolonged absence. Reminiscing around a piano, basking in nostalgia and embracing the night.

Georgia Feroce and Matt Koelsch made an instant connection amidst the dynamic music scene surrounding the Eastside of Los Angeles California in early 2016. Both natives of the harsh New England winters, each set out to the west coast with the intentions of expanding their musical horizons and in pursuit of eternal sunshine.

Together through their collaborations, performances and travels, a single was born, All My Friends. A song about the heart warming spirit of friendship after a prolonged absence. Reminiscing around a piano, basking in nostalgia and embracing the night. A timeless feeling and moment we all look forward to year after year while tapping glasses and breaking bread.

“When writing this song we connected through our own struggles of being apart from the people we grew up with and saw on a regular basis. The distance has made us realize how special it is when we do get to spend time with family and friends, and it makes every reunion that much sweeter.

True friendships do not suffer from time spent apart. With my best friends, we pick up right where we left off, as if no time has passed.”

The pair sought out acclaimed engineer Pierre De Reeder (She & Him, St. Vincent, Sia) to help capture the magic that exists in All My Friends.

Upbeat-jangly-rag piano, light acoustic guitar textures, three-part female-male pop-harmonies with a crowd of 15 background singers merge together to form this modern spin on a folk-sing-along. The track you are hearing is an unedited raw live performance amongst the entire group in the recording studio.

Georgia Geroce and Matt Koelsch performed at acclaimed venues throughout the United States including a variety of festivals. Both musical artists share common ground in philanthropy, Georgia often donating blood to the Red Cross and fostering animals. Matt is a 1% for the Planet member (environmental) and both have performed for a variety of fundraisers for cancer research, homelessness and green initiatives.

“All My Friends” is Available Now on Spotify!
