In addition to her own music Stella Rio has been working on Canadian DJ's DVBBS latest Wicked Ways EP, which just came out. She's also been writing for the new Little Mix album Glory Days.
Don't Go Away is about meeting that special person and feeling that you’re connected on a deeper level and never wanting to let that feeling go. Most people can relate because deep down most people chase that kind of love.
“Hewing Crowns” is the first single from Her Harbour's sophomore release, and is the oldest song on the album. She chose it as the opening track and first release as I felt it introduced the space from which I started writing Go Gently Into the Night and that it could serve as a preface to the demons I attempted to quell in making the album.
Out on February 3, 2017 with E-Tron Records, 'Go Gently Into the Night' is about cycles. Her Harbour wrote the songs at a time where death felt omnipresent. This album has been her attempt at making peace with death as a character of growing importance in my life.
Edited by Mike Dubue, the video is made up of found footage from the 1966 short film “Silent Snow, Secret Snow” by Conrad Aiken. I wrote and produced the album in Ottawa and recorded with Dave Draves at Little Bullhorn Studio.
Debutante is the Zurich-based solo project of Chris Zimmermann, in which they blend droney shoegaze music with pop sensibilites and chiptune synths, ending up sounding like an odd blend of Boris, The Microphones and Giles Corey. With deeply personal lyrics about themes such as depression or growing up in a physically abusive household, the music varies between slow, mellow soundscapes and fuzzy, bass-heavy gut punches that capture their energetic live shows perfectly.
Covers is a compilation album of covers and remixes done by Debutante between 2014 and 2016. It includes reworks of material by Swans, Have a Nice Life and the OSTs of the video games ,The World Ends With You and We Know The Devil. There's also remixes of tracks by Life In Slow Motion and Abraxas Axents, aswell as a breakcore track he did with a Yume Nikki sample. The EP was released digitally in November 2016.

Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Marga Lane creates authentic and heartfelt songs with an emotional rawness rarely found in music today. Upon graduating from the esteemed Berklee College of Music in Boston, native New Yorker, Lane moved to Los Angeles to further pursue a career as a professional recording artist and songwriter.
In 2015, Marga Lane began compiling what would be her most ambitious and personal project to date, a five-track story of love and loss. “I write a lot of love songs and love is synonymous with belief. I would hope my music inspires people to have a belief in the power of love. Whether it's love for yourself or love for another. You can believe that you are meant to be with a certain person or believe that you can overcome circumstances because you love yourself enough to,” confides Lane. Musically, the forthcoming EP entitled Undressed is powerful in its simplicity and an anomaly in a world dominated by overly produced music. Undressed, which was produced by fellow Berklee alumni Matt Bobb, showcases raw acoustic guitar, soulfully layered vocals and distinctive melodies.
Opening single “Thinking About You” begins with upbeat jazz guitar and features Motown inspired vocals. The song is a celebration of love in its truest form, a new relationship and the hope and bliss that accompany it. While “Forgiven” takes on a more sullen and melancholic tone, a beautiful ballad of regret featuring Lane’s stunning vocals.
Marga Lane has found success touring throughout the US including performing at fashion weeks and singing the national anthem at over 10 NBA and MLB games. She has enjoyed the support from popular recording stars and industry veterans including Lance Bass who featured her on his SiriusXM radio show “Dirty Pop”. Marga Lane is looking forward to the next chapter in her exciting musical journey.
Undressed is set for release December 2nd, 2016 worldwide.
Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
Ali Murray is an ethereal folk songwriter/musician from the cold isle of Lewis in the north of Scotland. He writes dark atmospheric folk music with lush sweeping dreamy soundscapes and Celtic-twinged instrumentation. His new album LAND OF EVERGONE strikes a balance that is intimate and soaring, peaceful and haunting, sad and quietly joyful, delicately reverberating with Murray's dreamy voice and guitar playing.
