“My Bad” by Moe the Natural
About the song: “”My Bad” is about the end of a relationship. It captures the breaking point when each person finally spills out everything they’ve been holding back from each other. It’s the exact moment when two people are completely fed up and exhausted with trying to make it work, and the acceptance that their relationship is coming to an end” — Moe the Natural
“Change Can Start With Me” by Cherish Alexander
About the song: “Change Can Start With Me” began not as a song but as a songwriting exercise. “As a songwriter, I usually write what I need to learn,” Cherish Alexander explains. “Thus ‘Change Can Start With Me’ was born. Even though I had no intention of releasing it, there was a little voice in me that would not let it go.”
Inspired by a quote from Gandhi (“Be the change you wish to see in the world”), the song took shape. “That quote seemed to consistently hover over my thoughts meditatively,” she said. “It was the summer of 2020, and it felt like it could be the end of the world. I contemplated the sentiments ‘Can one person really make a difference? How can I be the change?‘”
Her answer was the single – a song born out of the darkness we as a society have faced over the last couple of years. From the pandemic to the Australian bush fires to the wildfires on the West Coast to the horrific effects of climate change to the civil and political unrest sweeping across the globe, “Change Can Start With Me” shines like a beacon, drawing people closer to pull together as a community.

“Talking in My Sleep” by Jenna Isn’t Famous
About the song: “This song is about hanging on to a love you know has reached its expiration date, but being in denial because your partner is such a wonderful person. It’s about standing on the edge of a cliff, where freedom and your true self await if you just take the jump, but the stability and comfort of where you are is holding you back. Lastly, it is about how when we deny our truths consciously, our subconscious has a way of making sure it shows us what we really desire.” — Jenna Isn’t Famous
“Running Out” by Rick Rocker
About the artist: Born and raised in New York City, Rick Rocker is ready to bring energy and meaning back to rock and roll! Rocker, a singer, and guitarist who writes all of his own songs draw inspiration from classic pop/rock artists like Bon Jovi, Green Day, and U2.

“Into a Minefield” by Platinum Moon
About the song: “‘Into A Minefield’ is an energetic, fun, and powerful ’70s inspired rock anthem stressing the fact that you only live once – YOLO. The song encourages listeners to live their lives to the fullest extent, and to embrace a lifestyle of risk-taking in the hopes that one big break will bring the fulfillment and success they have been chasing.” — Platinum Moon
