Hookdiggy Celebrates Musical Connection with His New EP Flint, Michigan native and Atlanta based hip hop artist, Hookdiggy, just dropped his newest EP, 'Mic Check Music,' a celebration of connection through music and live hip hop sounds. "It was inspired by the idea we couldn't connect live during the pandemic so how do you still get that live music feeling," says Hookdiggy. "It includes live instrumentation on all of the songs, not traditional in hip-hop, but still true to the roots of the culture." This 5 song EP takes music inspiration from classic hip hop, like Tupac, Will Smith, and Jay-Z, to modern hip hop, like T-Pain and Kanye. He blends the two together to create his own unique hip hop sound that you won't hear anywhere else. Each song is about relationships in one form or another. "School Crush" is about the first crush you ever have when you're in school, and "I Want You" is about taking that leap into a relationship, that there's no need to dance around the chemistry. If two people like each other, just go for it.

Influenced by watching The Dayton Family release their music independently, a hip hop group from his home town, Hookdiggy was taken by the hip hop and musical world. After he graduated college, he started his own music studio to help other independent artists make their dreams come true. When he realized that was his dream as well, he moved to Atlanta, where he's been ever since. In 2013, Hookdiggy had a pre-Grammy show called the "This Is Hip Hop Tour" at the Beverly Center in Los Angeles. It was the first real produced show he was responsible for. He then started a bi-monthly performance show called "This Is Hip Hop Thursdays" for a couple of months at Javavino in Atlanta. In 2020, he relaunched "This Is Hip-Hop Thursdays" in a virtual format for people to enjoy live music and did it weekly online every Thursday from June to November 2020

Alan Goins is a Born Storyteller with His Newest Album \ Much like the rest of us, rising singer/songwriter Alan Goins is a hopeless romantic and he isn't afraid to show it. He's been doing music as a hobby, but has found that it was finally time to put his music out into the world. He just released his debut album called "By the Moon," a compilation of songs that tell a story about a woman that he's never met.

You won’t find his sound anywhere else. His absolute vulnerability and openness is unmatched by any other artist. You can hear his passion and love for music in his songs. “This album centers around women I never met,” says Alan. “These songs are about the girls that didn't ‘marry their best friend.’ These songs are for the guy and girl who were born 500 years apart. This album is dedicated to the flowers that bloomed in Autumn.”

The sound itself is reminiscent of Paul McCartney and Simon and Garfunkel and his voice is raspy and folksy. With each song giving a narrative of a woman, it's a unique and creative album that puts your mind at ease.

Ava Faith Goes Outside Her Personal Box with Her Newest Single \ Self-proclaimed former theatre junkie and trained Jazz vocalist Ava Faith cannot be put into a box. She challenges herself often and doesn't let genre hold her down. This 17-year-old artist from Miami loves the fluidity in music as much as she loves to break boundaries.

In her newest single "Outside," she sings about being an outsider, about how sometimes she feels like an imposter. She sings “I know what it feels like to be on the outside; Doing everything right, just to be on the outside.” While she's figuring out who she is, she also embraces her individuality. She doesn't fit into these arbitrary parameters set by society, or even musically. She feels like an outsider, but she also accepts it and loves that about herself.

The sound of the song itself is an alternative rock song with a hint of psychedelic rock. With a rhythm that makes you want to bob your head, it’s reminiscent of Pink Floyd and The Doors as well as her own spin on rock, giving it a uniquely modern-meets-classic sound that you wont hear anywhere else.

Dan Zalles\' New Album Will Become Your New Resting Place Dan Zalles delivers an extremely versatile and charismatic album, in the midst of the pandemic chaos. Resting Place is a body of work that brings the listener through fives types of genres rolled into one, including upbeat rock, ballads, country, blues and even jazz fusion. Each song can stand alone, and holds a special element of magic, but when all 19 songs are brought together on one album, listeners can see the big picture. Explained by Dan himself, “I mixed them up so that you don't have just one genre and then another and so on…” The lyrics are about different moods and subjects from loneliness and lost love, to joyful positivity.

Dan Zalles exercised his innate story telling ability in tracks like “Driving Through the Wide Open”, while other tracks like “Back in My Bubble” show Zalles’ vulnerability out in the wide open. The song “Leave it to the Night” holds threads of a modern pop Phil Collins sound, and brings you into our favorite track…
“Aint No Stranger Times Than These” is arguably the most raw track on the album, painting a picture of what almost everyone in the world has gone through during the pandemic.

When asked how he got the album title, Dan Zalles says, “there’s a song on the album called ‘Resting Place’ and it’s a little morbid because it’s my reflection on life and death. I wanted to expand the idea of a resting place to represent a place of desire, a place where you might want to end up that captures your passions best.”

Dan didn’t stop once this album was created, he continued to work to bring his fans visuals for the album, which can be found on his Youtube account, right after his popular live performance videos.

Hip Hop\'s Newest Star, Jusme Da One, Aspires to His Own Greatness in His New Hit Single Jusme Da One, the North Carolina based Hip Hop artist, is finally ready to give music the commitment he’s always wanted to give it. While he comes from a musical background, his father being in a gospel group and he himself offering his musical ability to school and church bands, he was never able to make his hobby a career. Now, he’s giving music a shot, and he starts with his newest single “Aspire to Greatness.”
As part of his debut album of the same name, “Aspire to Greatness” is all about how he didn’t let his greatness pass him by. He may have had to overcome many obstacles, and it was hard, but that shouldn’t stop anyone from aspiring to be the greatest they can be. “‘Aspire to Greatness’ is a reflection of my life and my journey to achieve greatness in my own life,” says Jusme Da One.
“Aspire to Greatness” is very much inspired by modern day hip hop, with music similar to that of Kendrick Lamar and vocals reminiscent of Wiz Khalifa. The strength of the music solidifies the strength of the lyrics, with horns and purposeful piano, he hopes to bring inspiration to others, because even though he sings of his own journey, he reminds the listener that greatness is in us all. He says “The message that I wanted to convey with this song is that no matter what you've been through, greatness is within each of us. You have to Aspire to Greatness no matter the obstacles to be who you're meant to be.”
You don’t want to miss out on “Aspire to Greatness.” This vulnerable yet catchy song is all about empowering himself and others. If his single is this good, we can only imagine what the album has in store.

“Aspire to Greatness” is out now exclusively on Soundcloud:
