“Clean” by Maude Latour
About the song: “”Clean” is a fascinating project to me. I originally wrote this song two whole years ago. My fans have been begging for it to come out so I finally concluded it had to happen. I’ve made so many different versions of it, I can’t believe it’s going to be in the world. I first wrote it when I was 19, now I’m 21.
The difference between those two ages feels paradigmatic. I have grown and changed and learned so much in these past two years— let alone an entire earth-bending pandemic. I decided if I was still going to put this song out and fulfill my fans’ desires, I would need to re-record it, re-make it, and re-explore the clean world.” — Maude Latour
“American Fight (Hold On)” by Gregg Garvey
About the song: Native Minnesotan singer/songwriter Gregg Garvey has released a new single, the exhilarating and soulful slice of retro rock and twang “American Fight (Hold On).” Born of historically divisive and anxious times, the song, with its varied guitar stylings ranging from spry picking to forceful strumming, takes on the point of view of a drifter casting wry observations on American society, all the while maintaining a steadfast optimism with an urgent plea to hold on.
“The Witch (Maria)” by Alexis Perry
About the artist: 19-year-old songstress from Charleston, South Caroline, USA weaves her Southern Gothic style in her Debut single Murder In Suburbia out now! “Murder” has been selected as ‘critics choice’ on American radio, and Alexis Perry is quickly gaining a very loyal and passionate fan base worldwide!
