• Rose Cora Perry

    Written by Ashley Friedman Rose Cora Perry is a modern day example of an old school meets new world rockstar. With classic influences like Madonna, Norah Jones to MJ and Ian Thornley, Rose sings from the heart and shines from the stage. “A friend of mine once made the statement to me that your musical identity gets solidified around age 13 or 14 and it’s those bands that stick with you for life,” Rose says. “I can listen to any one of them and they still hit me like a ton of bricks in the same raw and real way they did when I first heard them as a teenager.”

  • Olloway

    Written by Emily Smith Originality and creative freedom are always a driving force when it comes to making music and other creative decisions. Before they were Olloway, the members of the Vancouver-based band were part of another project called FKYA as DJs/producers in their early college days. However, the project left the members wanting more than what they were limited to creating. “With our original music, we weren’t excited about getting toplines from singers and building tracks around them,” one of the members explains. “It essentially felt like remixing and lacked a personality.” Wanting more than just the “DJ/producer” label, the group started over and formed Olloway. Even the name

  • Mariami

    Written by Ashley Friedman After immigrating to America during the collapse of the Soviet Union, Mariami has quite the story as an up and coming musician. Now, based out of New York, New York with two albums already under her belt, Mariami is consistent and persistent when it comes to releasing music with each song having some sort of truth behind every verse. Her recently released single, “I Survived A War” does just that.

  • Dylan Dunlap

    Written by Emily Smith If one word could sum up the past several years for Dylan Dunlap, it would be “growth.” It’s hard to believe that his first performance, a cover of Adele’s “Someone Like You,” was around 5 or 6 years ago. Dunlap was still getting used to being up on stage. He tells us, “I legit hid behind the piano.” Nowadays, Dylan can be found creating his own music, opening up for bands like OneRepublic and performing around the world. In 2015, Dunlap took a monumental leap by auditioning for the popular TV music competition The Voice where Dylan put himself out there in front of millions of

  • Ben Haenow

    Written by Emily Smith “It was at an open mic night in ‘The Cool Rooms’ in South Croydon,” singer-songwriter Ben Haenow says as he reflects on his first live performance, “I was petrified to be honest…I just closed my eyes and didn’t really enjoy the experience at all.” Luckily, over time, performing to Haenow became an enjoyable experience and adds, “the more we played, the easier it became over time.” But gushes that he still gets nervous before a big show. One of the biggest challenges for Ben as a musician is being away from family. “Spending a lot of time away from my family and my wife whilst I’m
