Today’s Artist Lineup:
ALBVS – Take our Time
ALBVS (pronounced “Albus”) is Joey Albus and Ralph Parissi, two musicians from the Pittsburgh, PA area that having been working with bands and solo projects for years. While writing for a solo record, Joey asked Ralph to cowrite and appear on a song he was working on. They officially became a duo and changed “Albus” to ALBVS (the VS at the end for “versus” to denote the dual nature of the group) and worked on writing catchy electronic dance and pop music. They released their debut EP at the end of 2016 and are already writing and recording a full-length album that they hope to drop in early summer of 2017. “Take Our Time” is our favorite from the EP. The song is about meeting the right person at the wrong time and attempting to not rush into anything and ruin what could be something beautiful. https://www.reverbnation.com/albvs/song/26708859-take-our-time
Ember ATom- The Bright Lights
The Bright Lights is the second single coming out of Ember Atom’s hotly anticipated POP/ROCKSTAR Album, set to be released in early 2017. It’s a track that personifies the struggle and journey along the road to fame, and the duality of success. Ember Atom’s sound is a diverse and rich tapestry of human emotion; The Bright Lights brings you to the edge of desire, fear, ambition, danger and joy. “Now I can’t say that you’ll be better off, I can’t say you’ll leave a pretty corpse, but I can guarantee – you’ll have fun if you stay with me.” https://soundcloud.com/ember-atom/the-bright-lights
Love and a .38 – Oh my god
Love and a .38 is a Rock band… and they’re truly very sorry about that. But the thing is… they have no other choice. Four guys from different parts of the country, who’s varied and shared experiences, triumphs, and failures have brought them all to Los Angeles with that same conclusion. In their short existence they have been tirelessly D.I.Y. in all aspects of their career. Through social media, creativity, and lots of elbow grease they have amassed a worldwide following nearly unprecedented for an unsigned, unrepresented, independent band. Not concerned with hyphens and sub genres they have taken an “Its all rock and roll to me” approach to the writing of their debut full length album, and have stumbled upon a sound that is unmistakably their own, and undeniably Rock.

Rolgunz – Miss me Tomorrow
“Miss me tomorrow” is a song about two battles in my life. Love and Addiction. The song is a mixture of heartache anybody experience when they are in a committed relationship with their significant other for a very long time, and feelings of doubt rise within that relationship. https://soundcloud.com/rolgunzondabeat/miss-me-tomorrow

Southern California recording artist Manistylez (Many-Styles) is a talented performer, songwriter, producer, and entrepreneur with charisma and a stage presence that is unrivaled.

He served time in a Federal prison and has since become a thriving entrepreneur, as owner of a successful furniture distribution company.He is also the CEO of TITAL entertainment (Taking It To Another Level), a record label he launched in 2011 which all of his music is owned and released through. Early 2016 tragedy struck yet again when the young mogul’s cousin was murdered by an assailant who attempted to rob him. “He was my cousin but we were like brothers. I saw him as my little brother. He once told me I was his favorite rapper. That meant a lot to me.” – https://soundcloud.com/manistylez/fresh
