“Hidden verity” by Mrs. Yellow
About the song: “’Hidden verity’ is about telling the truth. The truth about what is really happening in the world and in the society. How people in unfortunate countries are getting treated by high-ranking people. No feelings and no emotions. Just pride. It’s cold blooded slavery and barely nobody knows about this and those who do, doesn’t make a change. And if that isn’t enough, this terrible industry is also destroying the nature on the same. It’s absurd, someone has to speak up! So here It is.” — Mrs. Yellow

All streaming proceeds will go directly to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and likewise, the rest of the EP proceeds will as well.” — Rebecca Karpen
“In The Dark” by Botero Music
About the song: “”In the Dark” is a song about contrast. A bright chorus contrasting with a dark midsection, somewhat melancholic lyrics accompanied by bright chords and indie production. This song grabs you straight away and does not let you go. Perfect for summer drives and belting at the top of your lungs.” — Botero Music

“Whisky Man” by Dazzle Rebel
About the artist: Born on the cusp of the Generation X and Millennial cohorts, Dazzle Rebel sits in that weird void between generations. Out of time and out of place, his music is neither hip nor classic but that’s the way he likes it.
As a songwriter, Dazzle Rebel has created a vast songbook of music and collaborations with other artists. His sound is heavily influenced by the 90’s alternative scene and fringe rock legends such as Warren Zevon and Captain Beefheart. With wide and varied influences he describes his genre-bending sound as ‘Fringe Rock’.
