The Mistics – Broken City Lights
Genre : Alternative / Rock
Addiction is an affliction that affects almost every family in America in some way. If not directly, indirectly. Broken City Lights is a reflection of how addiction can break apart the family and alienate friends. When addicted people think about their life before substances, it is a happy memory. They remember a life when they aren’t looking for their next hit. It’s a song for other addicts and family members of addicts, whose life is even harder due to the addiction of their loved ones.

Stephen KP Byrne – Bank on a Dream
Genre : Rock, Country, Singer-songwriter
Song is a lot to do with the struggles within life and to never give up on your dream you want, even if others tell you to give up, just ignore them and continue towards your dream. Just keep swimming as Dory would say.



Electricks – Night Runner
Tennessee-based duo Electricks have mastered their own version of synthwave that is familiar but fresh, stoic but spirited, cohesive but never complacent. Their sound is that of synth tones lurking in the shadows of neon-lit streets, a danceable yet atmospheric pulse that strikes like a switchblade. Straight off the release of their most recent EP, “Riding on the Run,” Night Runner makes a grand entrance and Electricks are thrilled to see their music reaching new audiences. But as their futuristic, propulsive tones might suggest, this isn’t a band that sits still for too long. Keep your eyes on those dark corners, because you never know when Electricks will strike.


Giuseppe Brai – Elena
Music is the dream of my life. I’m an independent artist who supports all the costs of recording, producing and distributing my own music. I work as a product responsible  in a renowned company that produces organic foods. I started playing acoustic guitar at 15 years old.My musical and cultural back ground in general, has always covered the Anglo-Saxon world and in particular the culture and music of the United States and Great Britain. I have a profound knowledge of English and American literature and have always been fond of Celtic music, country of origin and folk. For Elena, I wrote my first song and which followed many others dedicated to her. On August 13, 2017, the song “ELENA on CDBaby featured on 150 Digital Distributors in 200 countries around the world, a song I have many expectations,” ELENA “is a cool, danceable song where besides a sexy and captivating text are very interesting sounds and a very high level arrangement. The official video has also been released on YouTube and a radio campaign will start in the United States, Canada and UK. It is expected to release another single for the end of the year and a full EP or full album for spring 2018. Today Elena, my companion, is also my collaborator in the writing of lyrics and back vocalist in the songs that we write, great value added to the beauty of our relationship.
