“Get Out” by Taryn Lounsbury

“Upperhand” by Lucy Morgan
Lucy Morgan is a singer/songwriter from Port Stanley, Ontario. She grew up with music in her life from the very beginning and performing has always been in her blood. Writing songs is a form of therapy for her and letting the world hear it feels like closing the chapter that inspired it. She believes music is our universal language and feels so blessed to provide a space for others to connect emotionally through her music.
“Devotee” by Travis Jon Evans
Growing up in a small town in regional Australia, Travis had a love for music and sound production at a very early age. Armed with some basic musical skills honed through childhood piano lessons, Travis was experimenting with sound-on-sound vocal/keyboard recording by the age of 10 via a setup of multi-deck cassette recorders and custom-made instruments (think kitchen utensils on an ice-cream container for drums!). Though primitive, these early experiences would serve well in developing a sense of song and an ability to create musical moods by layering complementary musical parts.
“Over The Rainbow (acoustic)” by El Gallo y Lä Sireña
“In honor of Judy Garland’s 100th birthday! Collaboration between a Méxican Flamenco guitarist and an NYC Actor/Traveller/Vocalist. The song will be on the Soundtrack and Companion Playlist to an audiobook released in August 2022. Something new to the audiobook world. ” — El Gallo y Lä Sireña
“Not Tonight” by FLOYD WEST22
“The song is a fierce future house/tech house with hypnotizing vocals and a beautiful chaotic bass line to make the dance floor go insane or inspire people to go extra hard at the gym.” — FLOYD WEST22
“Good Enough for Me..” by BRANLAND
Through a myriad of musicality BRANLAND conveys the pain of watching someone you love fall apart, separating themselves in an array of confusion and self loathing, hurting themselves without realizing they are hurting the ones who love them. The songs verses representing the hazy, drunken efforts to deal with their spiraling pain and not seeing who is reaching out for them to hold on to. The chorus urging them to remember that despite all of their insecurities and vices, that they are still loved. ” — BRANLAND
