Natt F. – ART (RIP)

Is art almost dead? 23 year old Vegas based Alternative-Pop artist Natt F explores the twisted notion with her latest head-bopping single: “ART (RIP)”. Crafted under her staircase, this flurry of Electro-pop, tropical house & alternative elements hits. Hard. The track proves to be an experiment in auditory alchemy a prime example of the subtle yet disruptive force that is Natt F. With nothing more than a pen, a mic, a retired guitar & an outdated version of Garageband, she’s cranking out big sounds in hopes of igniting a social revolution in a time when Instagram followers can seem to deem one’s value.

Natt has proven herself to be one of few soldiers raging on in the modern war against falsified glamour, digital distractions, & social pressure. With vocal stylings compared to the likes of Santigold, Billie Eilish & Phantogram‘s Sarah Barthel, she manages to walk a lyrical path riddled with blunt truths much like her older inspirations: Thom Yorke & Phil Collins. Minus the always present rhythmic easter eggs nodding to her Caribbean roots, every song is a different blend of unique mechanics, musical styles, & jarring lyrics that create a larger poetic picture. “Filters define my face, A selfie away from a social grave.” Just one of the many macabré ideas explored in Natt’s “Digital Spell” released September of 2019. But what does all of this mean? Well, Its quite clear that she is already proving herself to be something of an acquired taste. Nonetheless, there is no denying that her weighted words & intoxicating sounds have started to ring in the ears of those who listen closely. As supporters eagerly await the release of her 4th single “We’re All Mad Here” early 2020, they have no clue what to expect. They rest in the certainty of knowing that whatever this one-woman-show is creating will burrow into the ears & bring us all one step closer to fulfilling her ever important mantra: Listen. Disconnect.

(Camp Candle)

http://unsignedmusicblog.com/

Two friends from Philadelphia trek through the crossroads of life with their music and a smile. She is Hetepsa, he is Nu Ra. They are Camp Candle.

The duo met at W.B Saul High School of Agricultural Sciences, a school with a farm, located right in Philly. Throughout the years, the “farm school” became an unusual and often therapeutic outlet away from the decadence that plagues the city streets. Most city folk don’t have the opportunity to do something so outside of themselves and their surroundings. Camp Candle wishes to share that feeling  that comes from living beyond the limits of a situation through their music, because not everyone can turn to landscaping and tending to sheep as an outlet.

Camp Candle draws their influences from many places. You can find hints of synth pop, hip hop, indie rock, soul, and many other styles of music. Nu Ra, who does ½ of the production starts the instrumentation. When Hetepsa brings her flavor, she moves the music along with her lyrics and voice. When it’s all melted together, it can only be described as Camp Candle.

Camp Candle plans on touring, connecting with thousands of people, and creating a genuine relationship with all who enjoy their music.

(The Glass Child)

The story of The Glass Child, Charlotte Eriksson, is one of those you usually see on movies. Only 18 years old she left everything she had and knew, family and friends, and moved to London to dedicate her life to her music and art. A vague dream about reaching out with her music became an everlasting journey about fighting for your dreams, self discovery, finding your true purpose and creating something that will mean something, now with over 24,000 dedicated followers and fans with her on her journey through her social sites like Twitter and Tumblr.

Forward three years and she has started her own record label Broken Glass Records, released 4 EPs, released her critically acclaimed debut full-length ‘I’d like to remain a mystery’ in February 2013, had her single ”I Will Lead You Home” reaching #2 on the Swedish Itunes-chart, was named Breakthrough Indie Artist Of The Year by Lemonade Magazine and been played on major radios such as BBC6, Sveriges Radio (Sweden) and 3FM (Netherlands). All alone, with nothing but hard work and determination she has built an incredibly dedicated community now with over 24,500 followers on Twitter, and to let her fans in on her journey even more she published her first book “Empty Roads and Broken Bottles; in search for The Great Perhaps” in April 2013, telling the true and raw story about a girl who had a dream and went for it with all her heart. The book was beautifully received and sold out after 3 days of pre-order.
Charlotte is a wandering soul and after spending a year in England with nothing but a guitar and a will to search for something more, playing wherever she could play and crashing at fans’ floors, she has just made the move to Berlin, Germany, to seek new adventures and spread her music wider. ”I believe in writing your own story. Do you wait for things to happen, or do you make them happen yourself?”, she says, and also shows how she’s constantly connecting with her fans in new ways. In September she released an acoustic edition of her album ’I’d Like To Remain A Mystery’, giving it away for free through Noistrade as a way to thank her fans, and the album was featured as a Top Download after only a few hours.
With her constant search for new horizons the stories are endless, and to finish up a productive year she’s now releasing her new acoustic EP ”Love Always, Your Tragedy”, and explains that ”These songs are the letters I never dared to send. I wasn’t brave enough to speak up, so I sang instead.”
”I wanted to turn my life into my art. My very existence into a poem. This is my story – it’s been a beautiful fight. It still is.”

Senerio Baptiste (Born Jamal Kerby Jean Baptiste, July 17 1992) is an American Singer-Songwriter and Producer, Actor, and Performance Artist. Art began for Baptiste through poetry before anything else. Surrendering to the art of sound, Baptiste and his poetry soon evolved into melodies. At the age of 11, writing music became such an obsession. Everytime he’d write a new song, Baptiste would call onto his friends and sing to them. During his adolescent years, writing became more of a daily practice. Baptiste would secretly hum melodies under his breathe, writing versus during classes.

After releasing 8-track EP, Red Carpet Ready (February 2010), Senerio has successfully teamed up with many other artist. The closest to him would be Draydel (Born Daniel Sado), Engineer & Personal Manager. Draydel has been working along side Senerio since early 2010. Both, Senerio and Draydel, consider eachother to be their creative influences in the music industry. Senerio dedicates most of his success to Draydel’s support. One of Baptiste’s most unforgettable performances was the Rock The Beach Festival, hosted by Sam Ash, Critical Recordings, and The Mayor of Sunny Isles. This opportunity would not have rose to the occasion, had it not been for Draydel’s management. Baptiste captivated his audience by pouring a bucket of blood over himself. Clarifying his stunt, Baptiste stated “It was the symbolism of pain, self inflicting and onto others”. Currently, Draydel and Senerio are working on the finishing touches of Senerio’s LP, EDEN. Prior to the release of EDEN, Senerio has collaborated with a few engineers, such as DJ Smack, 24, and Marcos Cassasa.

Baptiste has been keeping busy, outside of his personal projects. He currently resides in Brooklyn NY, where he takes on many promising endeavors. Currently, Baptiste is a songwriter for Long Island Musician/Entrepreneur, Corvaa & Brooklyn Musician, Olivia Castriota. Baptiste works with Producer/Manager Mark J, who manages Corvaa. Baptiste has also teamed up with Marcos Cassasa, connected through Scott Kjelson. Cassasa and Baptiste now are in the process of creating a new EP, after the release of EDEN. “There are alot of releases to look forward to, in 2015” Senerio states. With the help of his team, Senerio is already ahead of the game. Let him take you on a ride, where innovation comes alive. Give him your left eye, so you can see just how he looks tonight. Senerio, the representation of any insecurity at its finest. Prepare to experience a rebirth of the Maniac.

“Imagine if Passion Pit met Justice and had a baby. Meanwhile, Daft Punk and Foster The People met and they had a baby. Then, by some miracle, those two babies met and reproduced…The Electric Sons would be the fruit of those loins. The Electric Sons absolutely killed their set… I was blown away by the amount of energy and passion these guys brought to the table.”
