LA darling Presley Tennant has come into the year 2018 with such fire and promise that there is no telling what the limits are for her and her music. Since 2016, Tennant has performed all over the country in some of the most sought after venues such as VidCOn 2016 and the Kia Stage. Not only is she getting the face time that most budding artists seek, but she is also producing relevant and eye-catching content that is going viral. Most recently, Presley released a music video of one of her most well-known singles, “BFF,” which is a clever spin of text slang for, “best friend forever.” Not only does the tune and beat keep the attention of the listener, but the lyrics themselves are clever and catchy which renders her work memorable.
Adding to her success is her involvement with the WNBA. Earlier, Presley was selected as an ambassador for Young Women with the LA Sparks. During this time, she attended several events that promoted many things including growth and confidence among her peers. Not only is this artist taking the stage, but she is also taking the hearts of her fans as a strong and confident member of the community. It is clear that this artist is gaining momentum towards what could possibly turn into a wildly successful career.
Still budding after the success founded in his debut track, “High Like This,” Kevin George recently released his newest single, “My Crew”. In his own words, “With My Crew, I wanted to create the soundtrack to the party for me & the kids from my city. Anything Goes at a party in CT”. Not only did he achieve this with the creativity and killer beats, but also with his innovative lyrics and loops.
If this new single wasn’t enough to get excited about this upcoming artist, then the announcement of the bigger picture is. Recently, it was published that “My Crew” is just the beginning of a much bigger project. In fact, this new single is a small piece of upcoming project LOVELAND, which gives all of his fans something to look forward to from this newcomer. Not only does George have a unique vocal ability, but his true talent is arguably found in his ability to produce skittering tracks that have since become a signature part of his sound and music profile. Now that Kevin George has released this second single, there is nothing stopping him from becoming a force to be reckoned with in the music industry.
After forming together at a high school party, alternative pop band The Unlikely Candidates went on to release three Eps and have since spent countless hours on the road in order to chase after a dream that started so many years ago. While on the road, they had several opportunities to work along-side some of the most well-known names and faces in the industry from Sublime With Rome to Fallout Boy.
Most recently, however, they have released a new lyric video for their single “Oh My Dear Lord,” and are featured on the Dirty Heads’ new song titled, “Celebrate,” which is currently in the Top 25 at Alternative Radio.

This new release has over 17 million combined streams-a number that is sure to continue to climb in the future. One of the most recognizable attributes of this band’s music is their ability to add a certain “grit,” to their pop overtones which allows for a larger fan demographic.

His most recent project Vancouver Sleep Project has literally taken him from bedroom dreamer to world class artist. Not only is he a highly decorated artist who has released several singles, albums and music videos, but he also had had countless opportunities to world with international artist in order to collaborate on his music. Along with his success in his ability to produce music, Bettinson has also had the opportunity to perform live throughout the world on highly coveted stages. However, now that he has returned from his now several headline tours, he has released his newest single “Closure” and it has fans raving.
Like much of his other music, closure features ambient sounds and dreamy loops and beats that is perfect for a night out on the town, or a night in.
